Our core, from our pelvis to our neck, is the entryway into our inner world.
Neither one is more significant than the other; they both depend each other.
Our legs and feet are our movement forward, or backwards. They root us to the earth, grounding us and providing our stability.
Our hands reach and manipulate what it is that we are creating; the hands are our opportunities. They take the ideas and dreams and make them reality.
Without our feet and hands, our capacity to thrive and grow is restricted.
Our core is where our intuition lays, the seeds of ideas and dreams develop, and the space we know without a doubt who we are, and what we want.
Our head bridges the two, it problem solves, strategizes and form opinions.
Through training, the head can allow your inner intelligence to flourish.
We are either too much hands and feet or too much core.
If you are too much feet and hands, you will miss your deepest yearnings and exist on what the external world prescribes.
If you are too much core, you cannot take that idea, that inspiration and turn it into a work of art.
You need both to work harmoniously, switching leads as in a fine tuned dance.
It is the mind that will take you away from the core, until you teach it how to dance between the two – stilling the mind’s chatter, turning inward, visiting that delicious space within and then taking the new ideas and passing them into your hands to mold and shape.
Dance between the two and see your dreams come true.
Recipe: Creating My life Meditation
Sit down in a quiet place and take 3 deep breaths
Inhale float the arms up to the sky and exhale the arms back down – repeat x3.
Take a moment and feel into your hands as they rest on your thighs and your legs and feet as they touch the ground.
Say silently to yourself, “I am grateful, for these gifts which help me create my life”.
Take another 3 breaths and bring your attention to your pelvis, belly, ribs and chest. Feel the movement of your breath as it moves through your core.
Say silently, “I am grateful for this gift which helps me create my life”.
Sit in silence for a few more minutes feeling in to the miracle of your body’s capacity to extend outward and turn inward.
