Desk Fame Segment

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP @ Inside Awareness, Living in Natures Love Blog & Renee Lindstrom Live

The fame area of the Bagua reflects ones essence or character, and recognition in the community.  This could be reflected by what one could hope would be on their memorial announcement.  This may include loving partner and parent who will be missed, contributing member to the community with a list of events or achievements left behind.  Unlike career where the focus is on your skill.  

3 tips for desk fame area

  1. De-clutter and open space up.
  2. Add red range of colours.
  3. Add light  to this area (candle).

Desk Wealth Corner

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP @ Inside Awareness, Living in Natures Love Blog & Renee Lindstrom Live

This desk corner is about abundance. Abundance in finances, investments and resources.  For me it also represents abundance in the quality of experiencing life and relationships that includes the cycle of giving and receiving.  An example is the balance of giving and taking.    If wealth is from natural resources the question is in the equal contribution back to restore and maintain the quality of the nature and the environment.  In other words is one just taking and not  giving back?

3 Wealth Corner Tips:

  1. Declutter and open up space in this corner
  2. Add blue, purple and red colours
  3. Add objects reflecting moving water such as fish (3), picture,  or fountain

Desk Health Segment

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP @ Inside Awareness, Living in Natures Love Blog & Renee Lindstrom Live

The work health area represents the center point of health in the environment, self and relationships and is in the center of the bagua.  It has two considerations. One is for personal health and the other is  health of the business.  If the person is not well, happy and content, the business is not going to show success.  If the business plan and working  process is not healthy, the people in it will not show behaviour that leads to success.   The business plan is the skeleton of the operation, the operation process are the joints and the people are the movement.  Is the movement flexible and spontaneous or is it tight, constrained and full of effort and pain?

3 tips for the health area

  1. Declutter this area and keep space open for ease of movement.  (in high-tech firm designs they are incorporating areas for their employees to rejuvenate through exercise, good food and naps.  The center is a great place to place these areas)
  2. Add colours for this area are the earth element yellows
  3. Add picture, Affirmation, or words that represent intention or essence of goals.

2019 #Desktop Rituals support Office Goals

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP @ Inside Awareness, Living in Natures Love Blog & Renee Lindstrom Live

Recently in a coaching session we discussed having a reminder for waking up to our goals throughout the day as support for achieving  our intentions. In this conversation the emphasis was on visual stimulus, however it could be sound, smell, touch or taste.

Our focus was  the office and afterwards I was inspired to create some desktop tips that can be used as physical reminders using an object, picture, colour or shape.  The intention of these placements is to connect and focus ones attention for more clarity.  Attention goes where one is focused.

Whether in fortune, fame, relationships, creativity, health, community or career these tips are for those who want to improve their office setting and experience.  Read the links below for ways to improve office life through personal connection to the environment which is your landscape where your experience begins.

I recommend to take time with each area of ones desk independently to consider what influence would best suit that area. Change one area at a time leaving some time in-between to notice differences.

The following is for those wanting to connect to creating a sacred connection to this pattern of change.   When you have cleared the clutter and holding a special object, say a personal blessing or prayer just before placement. For me, I use a Heart Sutra Mantra and recite it 9 times. It goes like this – Om Gate, Gate, Paragate, Parasamgate, Bodhi Svaha. It means, gone, gone, gone beyond……

Interpretation of this mantra and action is that it is a statement of intention and request followed by letting it go without any attachment. The placement announces the intention is set as it is placed. It becomes a visual reminder of what you are longing for.

Nov 14 ’18 Inside News: Empathy for the Parasympathetic & Sympathetic Nervous Systems with Feldenkrais®

In our last newsletter shared how foods could improve our emotional groupings by connecting them to body regions along the parasympathetic and the sympathetic nervous systems. This practitioner is going to call that ‘Food Empathy’ due to the amazing emotional shifts food can create!

This newsletter will suggest that movement can also affect these systems giving the reader more choices in increasing their skills to shift or transform uncomfortable behavioral patterns using  Awareness through Movement® Somatic Patterns.

The parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) controls homeostasis and the body at rest and is responsible for the body’s “rest and digest” function. The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) controls the body’s responses to a perceived threat and is responsible for the “fight or flight” response.

The difference for this Feldenkrais Practitioner has been that Feldenkrais articulates the inner movement through sensing along the nervous system to mobilize other moving parts to increase ease in movement while other styles of movement are stylized exercise patterns.  The most difficult process this practitioner has observed in others in lessons is the difficulty many have in transitioning from needing to know how to do it before trying it to simply experiencing it through patterns.

Below  are some physical examples along the nervous system that compliment the emotional sensing of the Nonviolent Communication 4 part model, Observation, Feelings, Needs & Request as well as subtle energy center foods mentioned in the last newsletter.  This practitioner is suggestion that these movements can increases one’s window of tolerance and ability to cope as she suggest foods could by increasing the gut brain connection.  It is the body’s natural empathy resource.

To read more from this writer on this topic:

Awareness through Movement for Crown & Brow

The Brow Chakra encompasses the pituitary gland, eyes, head, and lower part of the brain and is associated with the center of ones intuition.

All guided Awareness through Movement® Lessons, called ATM’s, would support the 6th & 7th Chakras as the intention of the patterns are designed to focus ones attention to specifically bring a state of experiencing each moment using the movement itself. In meditation one is taken into a practice of following the breath or imagery while Feldenkrais® takes one into the focused experience of their personal action from the inside out.

Try this example experience of 7 steps to get in touch with your somatic awareness capabilities:

Awareness through Movement for the Throat

Located in the throat at the voice box and Adams apple areas, the Throat Chakra governs the voice, endocrine gland, thyroid and communication.

The guided patterns Awareness through Movement® lessons can increase ones ability to sing higher or lower, speak with more groundedness, swallow easier and unblock air passageways going down into the torso.  Mobilizing unused muscles and spinal movements can free up any restrictions limiting information and fluid going upwards into the head and brain also.

In Nonviolent Communication, Dr. Marshall Rosenberg discussed how the base of the throat area is the line that separates reaction with thinking and speaking  from connection to universal values increasing empathy.  His focus of empathy was an action with an intention of the heart (or values).  If one was speaking only from the mind only the result would be disconnection and conflict.

This Feldenkrais Practitioner, who mentors and coaches using Nonviolent Communication,  can see clues in others who appear to living in their heads, so to speak.  It is evident in their facial features, colouring and body posture.  Sharing  lessons in either Awareness through Movement or Awareness through Communication  this Practitioner can see the changing environment in ones colouring, features and postural changes.

Two ways you can enjoy the Feldenkrais Method is through group classes or personal integration sessions called:
Function Integration  & Awareness through Movement 


To demonstrate the difference between Feldenkrais and other Movements in this weeks Awareness through Movement Lessons I showed the group a yoga mat and a mat I use in my movement classes.  The differences you can actually see are that the yoga mat is sticky on purpose to support held patterns while the Feldenkrais mat is for mobility for the purpose of having no environmental
restrictions.  In yoga one holds a pose and moves into another contrived pose while in Feldenkrais one has a focus on all the steps of the inside structure on their way towards striking any one posture.
