How do you learn? Where do your emotions and thoughts come from?

#1.  You are borne into an environment

This is how a culture is formed!  

#2.  You have the INHERENT ability to learn INDEPENDENTLY stimulated and shaped by your environment


First learning is inspired through movement! 

If your environment is safe, open and free your thoughts, emotions, movements and  behavior will reflect these qualities.  You will likely be more flexible in your actions.  However if your environment is a prison filled with hate and poverty your thoughts and behavior will reflect these qualities!  You will likely be more conservative and restricted in your actions.

The good news is you never stop learning!  You have the ability to change your own conditions through awareness techniques and skill building that will create the environment for your own future generations!  Change the future by shifting the past, now in conscious presence.

Make a difference.  It begins with you!  

Why?  836996

To go beyond the imposed constraints and false emotional realities,  

To support a healthier culture that cares for themselves, others and the planet equally.  

To live as though values matter, 

By speaking your values creating autonomy

and valuing others values equally creating interdependence!  

To use gravity effectively to attain balance, consider your bones as the structure of support in the design of your body, and values as the structure of support in your relationships.

Waking up to one’s attitudes of consciousness

For the purposes of learning about one’s inner consciousness,  let’s say there are two types of consciousness.  One is an automatic and  habitual experience,  acted out regardless of consequences and without any thought to it.  This is a closed state without choice that lacks understanding.   Generally,  it is  a reaction to something that is not happening and is not reality.  It is a perspective based upon the past or future and not the present moment.   The second is a focused awareness of attention for understanding reactions  before taking them.  This is an open state of choice, acceptance and the point of shifting and making change.  It is a response to what is real in the moment.  An example as follows:

Attitude of:

Attitude of Scarcity Effects:

Some Inner Thoughts:  

  • There is never enough ……….
  • I am going to lose ……………..
  • I am not going to be able…………
  • I’ve  never had…………………..
  • Will there be enough when ……………….
  • They have more………..
  • Mine is not ………………..

Feelings:  Fear, Anxious, Terrified, Despondent, Hopeless(ness), Frustrated, Angry, Tense, Shaky, Panicky

Some Mental & Emotions Reactions:

  • Hoarding (resources, finances, properties, objects, friends, lovers)
  • Compromise (nature, resources, sustainability, family, relationships, friendships, employment, one’s own values)
  • Hopelessness (wanting to die, not wanting to go on)
  • Aggressiveness (acquiring at all costs)
  • Control (working out, diet, environment, hierarchical position of authority)
  • Lack of Control (letting circumstances happen without taking any action of responsibility)

Some Physical Reactions:  Stress, Tension, Anxiety, Holding, Clenching, Shallow Breathing, Locked eye movement, loose of flexible movement and balance

As children scarcity is an unconscious learned attitude of  behavior much like eating, rolling over, sitting, crawling, standing and walking.  The difference is that it has been learned through the modeling of those around us while learning  functional movement is an inner resource of somatic awareness and experiencing.

Learning skills to transition this attitude into one of abundance  is more than a possibility.  It is a reality and begins with becoming aware of one’s habitual behavior responses.  This can be learned through  combining the mental and emotional with getting InTouch Talk or through physical movement with getting InTouch Movement.  These are easy integrative learning methods.     It supports your contemplative practices or can be supported by adding contemplative  practices to be able to cut the distraction.

Thinking and Posture have a relationship

Did you know that for every thought you have a picture is projected in your mind, and a physical pattern is created in your body and nervous system?

  • Stop self sabotaging by learning your own habits that are keeping you from success in your life and relationships.

  • Come to know and support what matters to you.

  • Change yourself first.  Create your own personal objectivity through understanding, awareness and skill development.

getting InTouch Coaching & Programs are designed to support change in your thinking and your body postures for ease in transforming your experience to experiencing success in your life.


Tip for connecting:

Learning to differentiate your thoughts. Purpose: to notice the source of your actions. Reason: Not everyone has the same past as you so cannot fit into your perspective! If you want to connect (rather than have conflict) it is important to notice the difference between your automatic response based on old stories  and what is happening in the “now” ~  present moment.
