“Our bodies retain all the innate and adaptive truths of our lives.

These memory experiences were encoded by movement, emotion, our many-more-than-five senses and our inborn reasons for living in the first place.”

Part of it is that unity of self is a challenge to generate in regards to change.

There are beginnings and “resolutions”, but they usually grow from,and often remain paired with, old losses or perceived failures – which sort of creates a paradoxical/oxymoronic condition.

We want to start the new, but that means leaving behind the old. We “resolve” to change but overlook the reality that resolution also means ending as well.

These patterns emerge from the fact that each of us has many voices, many conflicting desires, intentions and fears.

IA’s 2016 year’s thematic:

We will use movement in many forms and contexts to awaken a greater sense of freedom and safety.

Challenge, changes in perspective and the ability to appreciate progress already made are some of the defining elements. But what are the reliable trail markers that can let us know where we are now?

Ease of movement physically and energetically, excitement rather than fear at the prospect of change and a broader, enhanced sense of connection will be a great beginning.

All of us are familiar with the first two and usually with some anxiety or resistance attached.

What distinguishes them are two primary states of being:

First, in order for a commitment never to devolve into an obligation, all of our aspect need to have been present and in relative agreement at the time we made it.

Very hard to do when we all have so many divergent wishes, fears and intentions.

The former is usually regarded as absolute, derived from authority, unchanging and deviation leads to great, if not eternal, peril.  The latter tends to be situational, variable, individually created and ignored at a cost primarily to health and quality of life.

The overwhelming difference between them is exerted in the realms of self-trust:  If, when and under which circumstances.

Yet there are common elements as well. They both involve striving to better the self, to fit in or belong more completely, to provide service and contribute in the world.

We all know of the courage to preserve – first responders, emergency medics and especially, now here in the West, our firefighters from all over!

And, we’re each in the drivers seat.

When there is more You available to You,
essence, inspiration, joy, connection,
creation all bubble for a venue of 
expression. Self becomes the igniter of
inspiration.

Instead, we often feel that we’re living by
someone else’s rules and that we’ve put
others’ needs before our own and begun
to lose our footing.

Many would say the Mind – but the mental body has no material existence and so has no direct sensory/physical input. Some would say the brain – and it does help!

But your entire physical being is needed because your body has the only complete and accurate recordings of all your life experiences.

I recently ate chocolate!  
 
Most “hang on” behaviors were learned in childhood (when our options were fewer) and, though more sophisticated by now, essentially rely upon the same protective strategies.
 
The very best tools are seldom called upon, because many of us were not taught how to use them.

Our reality is painted by past hurts, regrets, “oops”, etc. which are still to be forgiven or even acknowledged – both by other and self.

Forgiveness gives rise to freedom and understanding, to momentum forward, wisdom and even compassion.

It releases us from the blame game, feeling trapped or helpless and somehow the victim of circumstance. It allows us to take back choices which automatically spread into all facets of our lives – past, present and future.
