Body ShiftIncoming LinksFebruary 22nd, 2021Realizing I can do it like this, I felt what Eugene Gendlin in 📙 Focusing calls a Body Shift, the "feeling of coming unstuck inside":📙 FocusingThis book will let you experience and recognize when actual change is happening in you, and when it’s not. There is a distinct physical sensation of change, which you recognize once you have experienced it. We call it a Body Shift. When people have this even once, they no longer helplessly wonder for years whether they are changing or not.There are no words in the language to describe the felt sense and its physical shifts. Therefore, I must give a name to that feeling of coming unstuck inside. I call it the Body Shift. Not everybody feels the shift taking place specifically in the belly. It may seem to happen all over the body, or it might feel like a loosening in the chest, or it might be a relaxation of a tight throat. I call it Body Shift mainly to suggest that it doesn’t happen in the mind. It is always, in some way, a physical sensation. You often can see it and hear it when it happens in somebody else. There may be a long audible sigh of relief, a sudden loosening of some tight facial grimace, a quick, comfortable relaxing in the posture.
