How out of balance Taurus qualities can manifest physically & embodying change

Taurus  governs hearing, touch, smell and taste and the neck, voice and  throat.

When these parts are out of balance here are some physical ways it can manifest that become habitual. 

Developing an awareness of how to focus and enhance ones lifestyle can change the story of these conditions.  Cultivating this awareness to focus attention on whole function on the inside and expand it to go beyond ones perspective and beliefs to include physical, mental and emotional functions.

In the following figure the parts of  the human functional process are separated into visual bodies to make them easier to identify.

Currently understanding of human function seems to lack the knowledge of how each body of  function is inter-related.  This creates a gap of in ones ability to regulate and balance functions leading to system malfunctions.

For example, if someone is totally focused upon physicality with strong cultural beliefs of self-image, their personal mental and emotional health may suffer.  They may act out false self-esteem through aggression in relationships creating escalating conflict.

Since 2007 Renee has employed methods to support the creation of personal balance and inner harmony at home, work or at play.  They integrate the Bodies of Function whether the gateway session  is focused upon movement,  relationships, or environment.   This concept easily translates into individual coaching, mentoring, and  group learning events.

More in-depth learning about the Body of Functions is incorporated into the Intermediate Awareness through Communication teachings and deepened in Intensive Embodied Mentoring Programs

Guidance through simple change agent action steps can harness ones power of  learning to retrain mental, emotional and physical behaviours.

   The major benefit is taking one’s power back by cutting through the materialism  that gives it away.
