What if our everyday expressions could help us experience less physical pain? Our language connects our bodies to our feelings, even when we refuse to make that connection in real life. With the language of the body, we say things like:
“She has the weight of the world on her shoulders.”
“Just put one foot in front of the other.”
“What a headache.”
“He’s close to my heart.”
“It was like a punch to the gut.”
We reference different parts of the body all the time when we talk, even when we aren’t speaking in literal physical terms.
What if this language is more than metaphorical?
What if it tells us something about how we are experiencing the world, not just in our bodies but also in our souls?
