Balance Tip for falling fear when going down inclines

Are you fearful of falling going down stairs or an incline? This is the  number one  question at Renee’s Balance & A Fear of Falling Movement Series.

Her answer:  

Drop your center of gravity

Try it. 

  • Drop your center of gravity.  Can’t figure it out?  Bend your knees and let your butt drop down slightly.  Notice the difference in your feet.
  • Straighten up again and notice your body weight and posture
  • Now drop down and notice the difference.

Bending your knees and dropping your butt slightly is more grounding and can give one a sense of  solidness in their feet calming the fear center.

Feldenkrais® Awareness through Movement® Series starts with Moon in Leo

silhouette-3127516__340

What a great sign to begin a six part series.  Leo reflects fun, adventure and exploration which are the qualities to best capture the illusive awareness experience.  Too serious it passes by without recognition!

Two classes begin today.  One has a focus on balance and the other on growing qualities of awareness in the action of movement.  (Unlike yoga and the arts as the focus is placed on different functions)

The focused parts of the body for Leo are:  Blood, Heart, Lower Back, Circulation, and Spleen.  I will incorporate these into today’s movement patterns.

Be the Master Builder of your 2020 experience

Integrate your intentions with ease & enjoy the process of creating a new & successful living pattern 

Tap into your inner creativity to Imprint your inner longings for 2020

Any meaningful change begins when you notice what you would like to do differently in a non-judging way.   Creativity through the right brain activities of art, crafts, writing, music and walking in nature can turn ones illusive longing into obvious statements before goal planning even begins.  Leading through a right brain activity can tap into all bodies of function creating a balanced approach.  Activating goals through integration of all bodies of human function can create a living force and increase the will to achieve them.  The functioning human bodies includes the physical, cultural, perceptual, emotional and mental bodies.

It’s time to harness the mental thinking mind and give it guidance to support a fuller wholesome experience.  More on how the a dominant focus on the mental mind can influence self-judgement below.


Resolution statements taps only into your mental body.  This mental body has been culturally educated to respond to the world through the following reactions:

What this means for you for becoming the change you want to be

Resolution statements activated from the left-brain may focus on short term goals and not lead to last change that integrates life style.  Including aspects of right brain activities can lead to the integration of life style change leading to long term change.   With a focus only on the mental body it generally becomes its own driving force of single mindedness that lacks balance and support of all functioning systems.  It can be controlling and eventually may become a source of depression.

Why?  Change declarations from thought function may only be influenced by outside stimulus, should’s and self-image.  Long lasting and life-enriching change comes from the inside and goes beyond self-image and stimulus.  Meaningful change grows through a system of open learning, not through a closed system of should’s and should nots.

How to begin integrating change verses forcing change through concepts

 Becoming the Master Builder of 2020

The steps of turning Intentions into Goals begins with a vision of 2020.  It is then followed by noticing the four walls of experience created by our seasons; fall, winter, spring and summer.  The intention of the dream created in the year’s imagery is then easily turned into a doable guided pattern that incorporates universal values, characteristics and qualities in a novel and uncluttered way,  integrating new habits through the months and seasons.  The ease of leaning is integrated through the experience following a guided pattern.  Awareness through intention and action.

Turning intentions into doable goals in 5 easy, integrative steps

There are 5 fun and easy steps to activating the integration of intention and action in a meaningful way using a novel pattern to stimulate right and left brain functions with activities that can create life-enriching experiences and relationships.   As each step can be life-changing and integrative commit to spend time on each step before moving to the next one.  Direction suggestions will be given for each step.

Step #1 – The Foundation

Book time with yourself to focus your attention through your creative nature.  This step can be a private experience in your own space or shared with a friend group or spent privately with a mentor or coach.  It will take up to two hours to lay out the image with additional time to gather materials beforehand.  This initial step will be stimulating.  Let it digest for a minimum of three days before moving to step two.

What is stopping you from moving to a life of more joy?

The thinker

  • If you hesitate as you believe you are not creative, go beyond this thought and gather together some magazines,glue, scissors and some paper.   Create a collage mixing pictures and words that speak to you.
  • If you tell yourself you are dominantly a thinker, go beyond this thought and gather up some of your favorite magazines, glue, scissors and some paper.  Create a collage using words and include pictures that speak to you.
  • If you cannot devote this time to  be adventuresome and connect to  yourself and growth, pause and make a commitment and do it anyhow.  This is as important as eating, sleeping, and socializing, etc.  Perhaps even more important as it is the point of clarity and balance in  our natures.  It is invaluable learning and guidance that comes from  within.

The physical

  • Gather pen & paper and locate a place in nature that you can walk ALONE under and surrounded by trees.
    • Let this forest bath of smells, sounds & movement calm and slow down your 5 bodies to connect to your inner desires for the coming year
    • Listening inside is a place one can go in nature easily when slowing down to create the space for it. Listening from inside can give you your best guidance.  Use this time to become quiet and let your inner desires be heard.  Remember to make notes afterwards so this experience isn’t fleeting.

2020 in numerology is a number 4

2020 becomes 22

2 + 2 = 4

What does this mean personally and as a society in this philosophy?

  • 2020

A new decade, a brand new operating code.  This number, 2020, reflects 20/20 vision and 4 walls.  Four walls becomes the metaphoric home we experience personally and collectively.

  • #22

In numerology the number 22  is a Master number reflecting that of a builder who can turn the loftiest dreams into reality.   It symbolizes the welfare of society, making things happen and turning visions into reality.  It is a number of accomplishment.

2020 has huge potential for building a foundation with a focus on what really matters individually and as a society.
  • #4

The qualities of a number 4 is optimism, enthusiasm, strength, discipline, fortitude, commitment and focus .  The areas of it’s  influence are:

  • order
  • responsibility
  • stability
  • family
  • home
  • manifestation
  • conservation
  • peace
  • physical reality (what’s actually happening in the present)
  • practical situations

As a society there is huge potential this year for focusing on its welfare and making things happen.  This is optimistic and suggests many individuals will use their gifts and talents to eliminate obstacles and accomplish goals that will benefit the planet.  After all the planet is humanities four walls.  .

This year is one that has a focus on building dreams.  Dreams that matter and with the will to engage and move forward with courage, doors will open making them real.  The number four represents work and fortitude.  With strength and discipline obstacles will easily be eliminated and remarkable opportunities can be created.  This engagement will lead to success, happiness and financial flow.

Number four has traditionally been identified as reflecting hard work.  However ease can be created through goals and values laid out in a guided pattern for easier integration and do-ability.  A pattern of consciousness building that taps into what one values and longs to create. For more go to:
