Thinking patterns that create constraints to physical function, and false emotional responses

 

One of the possibilities for those longing to cultivate their own awarenesses is in the integration of a specific way to pause and listen.

 

This skill can turn illusive reactive behaviour into obvious thoughtful behaviour thereby increasing the quality of one’s life style, relationships, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

This style of listening cultivates awareness and connects one to their surrounding environment, inner emotional and mental environment and the very environment of functional movement.  Whether one functions with a  dominant right brain or left brain this style of listening creates balance.  Afterall we can access both sides of our brains equally.  I liken it to walking a maze or a labyrinth.  One is a right brain experience of introspection to connect and the other a left brain activity to solve puzzles.  The goal is to have a choice of pathways in any one moment.  Both right and left brain activities are equally valuable to reaching a specific target.

I experience right and left brain behavioural reactions in others whether the  focus is on movement, thinking functions, communication,  life purpose,  surroundings or lifestyle influences.  I have experienced what most have in common are the missing skills of how to make the change.  They can all identify it in others, and are quick to, however the model to dig deep within themselves to be self-witnessing is lacking.  It’s not a pattern in our general educational experiences.  It is an untapped resource.  There is a wealth of theory related material available yet the practical steps for integrating change are missing.  The theories out there contribute to the concept of something being “wrong” so there needs to be a fix. This is old school.   New school is that there is nothing wrong, it’s just a gap in the learning process.

Many of us process new information through old learning patterns from earlier cultural experiences.  This includes our:

  • thinking process
  • movement postures
  • emotional reactions.

Habitual behaviours can only only be transformed through exploring and practicing new ways of doing things with an attitude of open curiosity.

Over the years I have begun to witness that it’s how one thinks that is creating the dis-ease

As this post is focused upon types of thinking that pose a constraint to fully functioning with flexibility and clarity, in movement, thinking and responding, here are some types of learned responses.  Responses that are mental blocks to cultivating awareness that actually stop transformation of  habitual living and behaviours, mentally, emotionally and physically.

  • evaluative experiences in patterns of making moral judgments
    • labeling
    • assessing
    • diagnosing
    • criticism
    • incorrect use of one’s ability to compare
    • scarcity
  • positions of authority
    • right and wrong thinking
    • punishment and reward
    • making demands
    • hierarchical positions of power over
  • denial of responsibility
    • lack of honesty
    • blame and shame
  • competing
  • status quo

Developing the skills for transforming into who you long to be

 

Ways of integrating ones bodies of function is through new learning experiences for checking in and exploring:

 

 

  • how one thinks now and noticing if there is a better quality of experience with new patterns
  • how one moves now and noticing if there is a better quality of experience with new patterns
  • how one is stimulated by their lifestyle and surroundings now and noticing if there is a better quality of experience with new patterns

Exploring without rules is learning!

Being HumanA few hardcore Feldenkrais®  students came to join in one evening of Conscious Movement through Dance.   As the circle began sharing it was explained that the evening wasn’t a Feldenkrais®  focused event for their benefit.  They chose to stay and take part in a movement with the intention to connect conscious awareness and action in a dance pattern.   This concept had been explored with the other participants for a several nights before.  This evenings focus was putting patterns of isolated movements into a bigger flow of  patterns to experience.

As the larger focused movement pattern was taken up off the floor into big movements  a smile crossed their faces.  They mentioned that they had never taken their Feldenkrais®  lessons off the floor, therefore never experienced them in an upright action!  Beautiful moment that encouraged the remaining group members to smile.

Exploring without rules is learning!

Many thanks to the Church of Truth in James Bay for their support in hosting this wonderful series and letting us play with Conscious Movement in Dance!

Shifting the planet to green together  &  our differences are in the solutions not the values. Values are in harmony! 

If wo/man takes time to consider inner values and share them with a willingness to hear what is important to others, the solutions will more likely include both of set needs.  By listening first, before solutions,  the results will be more open and expansive versus closed and limiting. (*mirroring mindfulness) This will be the change that will shift the planet to green as  this behavior could replace conflict.  It may be surprising to hear that there is no conflict at the level of values, only in the solutions and strategies.

Green Environment? Start where you are – this is where balance will begin

Personal connection to the environment is reflected in personal surroundings at home, work and play.  It is experienced in our immediate surroundings by the decisions made and personal actions taken.  These decisions and actions are experienced in the present and future and impact the  quality of life, lifestyles and relationships.

Try answering these easy questions:

1.  Begin by considering what is meaningful to you in nature and make a list of qualities that reflect this.  Some examples might be; space, order, beauty, interesting,  fun and quiet.

2.  Now consider how your home reflects these qualities.  Ask yourself if your personal space reflects the same qualities that you enjoy in nature?

3.  Next consider the surroundings at work or school with the same inner question of whether it has the qualities you enjoy in nature.

4.   Once you have considered your structural support take time to consider what you do for play.  Do you play in nature?  Where do you spend your time? What do you focus your attention on?  Are you making any time to enjoy your natural environment?

Take time to integrate your responses
