Integration of Body, Mind & Spatial Awareness

 

 

Pegasus Consciousness Infusion

In meditation an unfamiliar word and image came into the mindful state I was experiencing. The word was ‘Pegasus’ and the vision of  it was in a peaceful atmosphere, not stormy.

Later I looked up the the symbolic meaning of Pegasus and enjoyed reading that Pegasus represents an aspect of what I have been sharing in my teachings for the past decade! Pegasus represents our Hippocampus, the place of memory.  It is the point in our brain which I focus in on by using empathy to transform reactions of survival: fight, flight or fright with calmer states to process emotions and go to the root source of what is causing the reaction. When this happens we remember who we are and where we are going – mindfulness (what is meaningful to us replacing the reaction).  For me this is how we can access our higher self by being able to understand our internal reaction and respond with this conscious awareness versus an automatic reaction that creates separation.  

In one write up I read that Pegasus represents communication that transforms evil!  I have enjoyed reading the historical interpretations of Pegasus and coming away with an opinion that it may reflect a new consciousness for many of us.  A consciousness that includes the skill set of meditation in motion (not sitting) to better understand how to transform our own inner agitation that inflicts violence on ourselves and others.  A consciousness that is an infusion of the art of conversation and strong independent support through our greatest support system – our skeleton!

Receiving this new information during the eclipse leaves me hopeful and I feel inspired and more grounded as a mentor in the arts I contribute to the planet! How I would describe the Pegasus consciousness weaved into my practice is that it is the infusion of flexible patterns of movement, process of communicating and environmental influences experienced in the quality of one’s reality.   It is the ease and comfort in one’s interactions, mobility and surroundings.  Each separate focus of my practice is a calming influence on one’s hippocampus (Pegasus)  for settling fight, flight or fright reactions.  Infused it becomes a greater experience.

Flight, Fright or Fight

Two powerful teachable moments yesterday in two separate workshops:

Movement:
  • shoulders response to flight, fright or fight
Communication:
  • hesitating to speak honestly on speculation of the other persons fear reaction and pointing out what is actually stopping one from being honest is their own fear?

Did you know that it is easier to smile than it is to frown?  

Try it!

Happy, sad

  • Check out the muscles in your face as you smile and as you frown.
  • Notice the different experience of the two.  One is uplifting and one is draining.
  • Which posture is familiar to you?
  • Look in a mirror  to see if you are smiling because if your little self only frowned growing up, you will think you are smiling but others will see a frown!

Now from a somatic perspective smile and frown again, however, notice your inner sensations.

  • Which one creates and expands breathe and which one makes it difficult to breathe?
  • Which one lifts your spirits up and brings you into a more upright posture and which one drops your spirit with your body sinking or collapsing?
  • Now imagine facing this smile and this frown in conversation and  how you would interpret it and react to it.

Now practice smiling and frowning at others and notice their reactions.

Emotions in self:

Exercise and develop face muscles and behavior!

Emotions in communication:

Develop connection or disconnection!

Emotions in environment:

Create a cultural experience!


At Inside our focus is on self-awareness and empowerment through somatic learning to nurture deeper intelligence of  when one is in a state of  connected (being presence) or disconnected (fight, flight or fight) by understanding cause of ones own reactions.  Pivotal point of re-balancing.  This includes perception, movement posture,  sensations (sometimes called emotions) and environmental causes.
