How You Move Your Body…

…is how we move the energy through our machine.

We are an extraordinary technology, a God technology.

Our intricate systems are amazing, from the nervous system to the endocrine system to the digestive system to the neural cognitive system. I mean, really, how incredibly fascinating are the operations of our bodies?!

So first, just take a moment to celebrate yourself. Without doing anything, you are absolutely incredible.

When we study and observe the physical body, it can bring us great awareness. But, I think it’s also important to observe and study the subtle or energetic body.

I knew this was true years ago after the very first time I did a Tai Chi form (another word for routine, if you’re not familiar).

Tai Chi is well-known to balance energy and reduce stress, but that doesn’t sum up its power. I learned a form from a visiting instructor at a Karate class, and the slow, intentional movements, combined with breath, made me feel like running. It felt as though the movements, like a broom, had swept and pushed away clogged energy from my joints, leaving me pulsing with energy! My body felt cleared of stagnant energy in a way I had never experienced from yoga, Pilates, dance, or any other martial art, all of which I love doing.

This Tai Chi form is a tool in my toolbox for healthy, happy living, so I wanted to share it with you. Here is a GREAT VIDEO I found on the form I cherish so much.

Our energetic body needs deliberate movements for us to feel our most energized, creative, and focused. While certainly, physical movement can clear our subtle body, some physical movements may contribute to greater stress on the body and energetic field. So, enjoy the active stillness of this nourishing practice.

To Your Health,
