Why Do I Think/Feel/Act the Way I Do? How Do I Change?

sayulitabeachatsunset

We are a creation of our experience. We are a creation of our expression.
We are a creation of our own creation.

We are constantly being created by the currents of moments/moment currents passing through us…each experience made up of infinite potentially flowing currents of life force being moved and shaped by the awareness of them happening. Every moment is arising without us making it do so, yet how it appears to us and how we react or respond to it comes by way of our perceptual filters.
How can we engage something as seemingly vague and out of reach as our own mental filters do you ask? We have to engage them through our body, as it is what is filtering and arranging our intake of experience, just as it is filtering our water and arranging nutrients we consume from food. Out body is a reality transceiver, that works based on our perception of it, and how it is interacting with our environment…so how do we change how we interact, react and respond to our environment? By adapting.

Both conscious and unconscious/subconscious adaptation happens naturally within the animal world, including humans. All creatures of the earth have the innate ability(to varying degrees) to adapt to their environment, an undertaking of a psycho-physiological shift within themselves in order to survive and thrive. Many people do not understand how to change themselves on an emotional, mental and spiritual level, although there is some degree of common understanding of purely “external/physical” change within the human body, as in the developing of strength via training of the muscles, but we are capable of much, much more. Humans are also able to change the way they perceive reality, via the shifting of beliefs, emotions and even physical movement and various ways engaging their bodies and minds. Many people may realize these things, but they cannot see how it could be a practical thing to try and become healthier or more psychologically balanced, but the way that we engage with and interact with our bodies, as consciousness, is literally the most powerful way to change anything within or around us!

We psychosomatically store trauma from physical, emotional and mental stress from the time we are born, our entirely plastic neurology that usually allows us to grow and continue adapting to the “stress”, or the evolutionary pressures of our environment, actually begins to suffocate us if we experience and/or hold onto too much of the stress, instead of allowing the currents of those moments pass through our bodies as they could. This is both entirely and not at all our faults. 99% of us are raised in environments and cultures that either do not know or do not care about how we are being changed by this trauma, we do not realize how deeply the compressed nerves, fascia and blood vessels in us change…we do not realize that the more tension we hold onto and allow to compress our viscera, the more the electrical current of our nervous system is hampered and caused to become inefficient, thus allowing for both psychological inhibition and unconscious alteration(even manipulation, from media and other people) as well as bio-physical imbalances and disease. The fluids in the body are constricted and begin to stagnate when we are this tense and reactive…the blood cannot reach the extremities, the lymph cannot move and cleanse our bodies and the cerebral-spinal fluid cannot move through the spine, nor can it effectively reach the brain…we begin to “freeze up”, and slowly we petrify as we begin to slowly cease our natural function as age/decay takes over…if the body is not allowed to move freely, it stagnates, and instead of being full of life, death begins to accumulate. We do have the ability to change this though. We have the ability to bring our bodies back to life in a myriad of ways…many do yoga, get massages, eat better, or try to find other ways to “get healthy” which work for them, but many do not understand the principles of health that they are looking to engage in through doing these things. Most people do not know that the current of life itself is directed and focused by our will and intention…our life can only be as powerfully lived as our will is freed up, as it is the will that we engage to create movement and make change.

Change happens when something moves, and nothing moves until something changes.

So we’ve established that movement changes things, any movement on various levels, changes what we engage with at that level…so if we move our muscles in certain ways, they change…but this is not the end, this is what happens with EVERYTHING that we will to move, the will pumps more conscious/living energy into the system, and the system changes, it is literally a form of art! We are constantly being created by how our mind is moving…the attention, lead by intension/focused will is like the paintbrush, and we use the colors of our experiences, thoughts, feelings and actions to create…the problem usually being that we are stuck in ruts, old patterns of movement that involve everything from doubt and self-pity, to anger, hatred and violence because of the trauma “locked” up inside of us, the tension of which is weighing on our minds, hearts and bodies, and literally “pulls our reality strings” so to speak…the unconscious (in)tension we carry pulls on the electromagnetic fields all around us, the currents we have had pass through us for so long from reacting to the trauma have magnetized many of us so that we are drawing in more and more of what is literally starving our viscera, dumbing us down and slowly killing us. The looped currents of incoherent/distorted electrical charges in our tissues, emanates from us into reality, and reality creates feedback based on the information/magnetic radiation we are putting off…it gets much deeper when going into “sub-atomic/quantum” levels, but it’s all basically one living field of consciousness feeding back into itself in infinite ways.

That said…when we begin to will ourselves into new habits, new ways of thinking/perceiving, new ways of feeling, and therefor new ways of moving ourselves, as little pieces of reality, we begin “re-shaping the puzzle pieces that we are”…if you don’t like what you’re connecting to experientially…you must change your shape/form/structure through adapting to new ranges of motion, thought and energetic flow. We must change the information that is stored in our biological memory, most of which is emotion and trauma…which can be formed back into life, by ways of opening the body and allowing for freedom of movement, and a ever deepening flow of the biological breath that animates us. Every new movement that we feel is like walking a new path, and every time we move that way again, we carve that path deeper into our neurology via the flooding of information through our bodies…every time we move in with a deeper perspective of what is happening, the more integrate and nuanced mind-body awareness becomes.

There are many ways to engage the healing mechanisms of the body naturally,  one which I enjoy and share is through intuitive movement/pandiculation(the same type of movement flow we tap into when we yawn!), which is very similar to myofascial unwinding techniques, but can also engage the body more deeply, on the neurofascial and electromagnetic layers of ourselves, as we deepen our ability to feel into, move with and engage the “mindbody interface”. This can be done through micro-movements, as well as general exercise, and as we work into a deeper relationship of engagement with the body, we can begin to engage the neurogenic healing functions, which is when the autonomic nervous system and limbic system come into a cohesive resonance, thereby allowing the body to naturally move on it’s own, stretching, opening, compressing and expanding, as well as literally shaking and vibrating out tension patterns locked into the body via traumatic incidences and the every day stress of our lives. The body is intelligent and self-organizing and knows how to heal itself, if we can relax into an awareness of it’s natural functions…the breath just goes, the heart just beats, the eyes blink, yet we can tap into these functions and control them…it is the same with movement, yet our exploration is in the “opposite direction” of our autonomic functions…we have, through engaging in traumatic patterning and behaviors, blocked of the subconscious/unconscious connection to our bodies, and have lived over consciously in some areas of the mind and body, and completely unconscious in others, bringing pain, imbalance and weakness to the human organism.

To release ourselves from the biological cages of our own trauma, we must “re-direct” our awareness back into the body, and feel for how our bodies are screaming for us to breath, move and engage ourselves more fully, with more presence and with a willingness to listen to it’s way of communicating with us…which is unfortunately so often through pain and suffering, which is meant to be a last resort, but has become the norm of daily life for so many. To open the body is to allow the stagnancy causing the sensations of pain, transform into a more “pure sensation” as we feel past the stagnancy into movement. By changing the information stored in our bodies via feeling and engaging the actual biological responses we have to it, we literally change our sense of self(to the point of it dissolving…yes, scary at first, but good in the end…it’s how we “free our minds”), our health, our everyday emotional states, as well as our perception of reality…and back to perception we have come…yes freeing our range of motion frees up our range of perception.

My Vine of Life Alchemy/Alchemical Movement videos, which are videos of myself engaging the mind/body in this way, are examples of how it can be done. If you’d like to check them out, visit the “Alchemical Movement” section of this website, or the “Services” section to read about my work with others in this way and the various ways it can be done.

  9. So you, as the restorer, have to set realistic goals as to exactly what parts of the car you are going to restore to their original states and what parts of the car you are willing to restore “as close as possible” to their original states.
    So, you are not required to move from one dealer to another for
    ideal model. Access Free Online Maps via Wi – Fi or
    3G network, such as Google Map.

    small as light hail damage which is barely visible through to damage caused
    by falling trees.

  13. Undoubtedly, the internet is among the most preferred market places where
    sellers and buyers meet. Once you do that take a spray bottle
