Energy Musings.  Here.  Now.

This Week!

Look out for the places you are getting hung up.  These may be physical, emotional or energetic and related to work, job, success or family.

Scan your body first.  Do you notice any places that are stiff, out of alignment, achy,  stuck?  Something that wasn’t there before or yesterday or last week?  Something that makes you ask “where did THAT come from”  or “what is THAT?”.  This is where you need to begin.  Breathe into those places with the mind of curiosity.  Bring your attention into the subtle sensations in these areas.    This is personal body work.  Learning how to breathe and listen and shift and recognize the (sometimes not so) subtle whisperings that your physical form  uses to tell you you need to take care of yourself.

There is no 1 solution because it is so personal and unique.  Your job is to become tuned into YOUR sensations.  As you notice more, try seeing what helps. Gentle movement?  massage?  rest?  warm water? Magnesium?  Try only one thing at a time to get a clear read on its effect.

Pay particular attention to the cervical and thoracic vertebrae. Keep this area limber, soft, relaxed and moving gently to aid mobility and prevent constriction.  ChiGong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Gentle Dance…. all these will help.  Make sure you allow the body movement its full extension and expression up the spinal column through the head.  Keeping the neck relaxed, the head gently lifted will help this.
