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?

Overcoming sexual blocks through Somatic Movement!

 

couple-814825_960_720As my practice matures, there seems to be more ease for clients & students to open to their  sexual shame and deep-rooted beliefs that have been implanted by themselves and others that no longer serve them.

In movement my experience is that  sexual shame or issues are expressed through the automatic blocking of a movement. In other words, one’s brain has been trained to not allow certain movements. As the Feldenkrais Method is gentle and conscious, (not outer worldly or orientated around dogma), logic is available to begin to notice the connection of the mind stopping a movement.   When one notices a blocked pattern of movement and experiences that they are able to move easily through it, they can increase their ability to move in a certain way!   This is the point in ones Feldenkrais journey that I generally find honest and value-based communication to make a huge contribution.   If there is an urge to talk, the dialogue is limited to what the feelings and needs are now in the moment.  If there is no talking at it or story telling the experience can move into feelings of acceptance and forgiveness.  

With no stories high jacking the present moment experience away to the past, there is increased  inner safety achieved. In that second of observing whatever it was blocking the mind, something new replaces it.  Some of the feedback over days and weeks – amazing!  The movement and language for me is the deepest empathy experience on the planet.

I have witnessed movement difficulties for women have not only been difficult sexual experiences with others but that they have themselves compromised their sexual integrity by submitting to sex when they didn’t want to but felt they had to.

In men I have witnessed judgement, self comparisons and low self-esteem.  As women, we have an urge to share our history with our partners which includes our sexual prowess, however, it diminishes their sense of being good enough!

In love and empathy singles/couple coaching, mentoring and classes I am pleasantly surprised at the level of sexual honesty that is emerging. It is powerful and liberating to talk about sex as a need. As important as water and air! My joy is to introduce it using Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs.  I notice a difference  in the participants as in the introduction of basic levels of survival sex and the higher attainment levels.  When one is meeting greater needs,  there is more conscious awareness and heightened sexual life achievement!  It introduces conscious options and choices.  

  1.  Basic Sex – Disconnected to self and others (less ethics & integrity)
  2.  Heighten Achievement – Connected to self and partner (increased integrity & ethics)

In personal living spaces the focus of the occupants is telling through what is expressed in their surroundings.  If there balance between couples (and children) as well as their interests, sexual gratification will also be a struggle of balance between the two.

In all three approaches there is a focus on creating a power with relationship through inner reflection of out-ward actions..

  • Movement Action –  brain, body, emotional & mindful awareness
  • Mindful Action – awareness of  thoughts, emotions & responses
  • Environment – stimulus for generating responses & reactions

Explore unique ways of slowing down to check in and notice where your focus of attention is.
