I believe that everything is interconnected. That our thoughts, emotions, relationships, and external environment have a direct connection to our physical health and sense of well-being. As human organisms, we have an internal operating system that is designed to move in and out of states of expansion and contraction with ease and fluidity. When we are functioning at our optimal level, we are able to navigate periods of unbalance or stress with ease and effectiveness – finding our feet again after a period of unbalance. Relationally, we have clarity about our needs, reach out and take-in external support, set boundaries appropriately, utilize self-regulatory skills, and yield or rest in the safety of another. In other words, we can return to states of homeostasis or vibrational harmony. But when life experiences, adverse events, or stressors are chronic or overwhelming, we might easily lose sight of this inherent ability to find our way back to balance – we end up living a life that is disembodied from ourselves and our true purpose in this world. We learn to function in a state of disconnection and disharmony.
The body IS the doorway to understanding ourselves. It is through the alchemy of the body and its energy systems that we can discover who we were meant to be in this lifetime.
