We work with our physical structure to revise beliefs, because our bodies are built to support change – constantly in flux, adaptable, responsive to choice.

Most of us react by cutting off choice. On earth, movement is as fundamental as gravity. When we make a rule, when we cut off choice, it shows up in the body as movement stopped.

By moving out of resistance into confusion, we induce a state in the body which allows opening to new choice and then on toward discovery and integration.

Restoring mobility restores choice.

“A good description of having healed is:

- Physically you are capable of doing what you want without fear of pain or reoccurrence;

- Emotionally you are responsive to present events instead of using them to recreate past hurts;

- Mentally you are quiet and without a sense of coercion;

“I don’t know”-
“I don’t understand” -
“I’m not in control!”. 

Each of these have questions and/or confusions, usually with a background of fear.

The first is actually a simple statement with an opportunity to learn.

The second often contains self-judgement,
with a scoop of unfair on top.

Most of us are familiar with all the external senses illustrated to the left — although we prioritize some over others, usually sight or sound.

Our brains actually process several more non-stop, and if we allow them into awareness, can change our lives in remarkable ways.

Many sacred days are here or just ahead of us. In practice, they seem largely dedicated to reaffirming existing beliefs, and sometimes the actions and usually the images we hold of ourselves and each other. The changing seasons reinforce this need at the cellular level.

Most traditions share values of honesty, helping, and even compassion. But when we look at the world around us, fear and judgement seem to be more in evidence.

The search for self-trust…

Discipline is needed for performance. This is because discipline has a preplanned outcome and predesigned components to produce it. By nature, performance anxiety is a near universal human experience. It may be softened or aggravated by a teacher or other performers, but we seldom have control over how they will contribute. The habitual nature of discipline allows those affected with performance anxiety to work through the mental blocks causing the anxiety.

For example, Fall is a beautiful time of year, a season that many are drawn inward, and
for some a sad one.

It also means to fall:
   … down
   … back
    .. over
   … from grace
   … in love.

Whenever a skilled or passionate speaker delivers a message, the language used means many different things simultaneously – and social media often exaggerates this effect even more.

Change always starts from within.  Even if the signs are external, recognizing them requires that we perceive our environment differently. 

And, we are primates. We learn by encountering an example new or different to us, experimenting by trial and error if we want to learn or change, and then manifesting what we have discovered in our own unique way.

What we all want is to be at home in
our bodies, with each other
and on our planet.

Our stance in the world is felt by others
to express our values,
willingness and power.

Recruiting movements and
expanding internal awareness not only invites updates to our self-image,
but offers more ease and
belonging into our lives.

Begin by sitting comfortably upright.

Then, first choose a rule awkward for you to follow and wish to be free of.

Second, close your eyes and sense inside yourself any place(s) tighter than the rest.

Third, very slightly constrict one of them a little bit more and hold for 30 seconds.

Fourth, gradually relax that spot, pausing at each easing to recall what you don’t like about the rule.
