A Solid Stance

These next 3 blogs represent the themes for our newest program, the 21 Day Pelvis, Legs & Feet program. Offering a beginner and advanced version, we will be focusing on the lower body to bring the balance between stability and mobility in body, mind and spirit.

There are many things that can set us off balance, and the forces can act on the physical body, emotional body or your mind. It can be something that happens in the moment, or even memories surfacing that pull you back to a time of stress. Whatever the reason, life is harder when you are not grounded and connected to your center.

I have certainly experienced this many times in my life. Being hypersensitive, it took a long while to learn how to shield myself from the impact of other people’s expectations and my own inability to guard myself appropriately. It also took a long time to train myself to forgive, to let go and show compassion to myself for past wrongdoings. Then there is the actual physical body that accumulates injuries, traumas, toxins and asymmetries simply from not using your body in a balanced way throughout life. Sometimes it amazes me that we are still surviving the onslaught of insults that life throws at us.

To be successful in co-creating a world filled with peace, love and joy, we need to be grounded. With so many forces acting on our systems and psyche, tapping into the physical body presents a palpable action that can be immediately felt. To be able to feel your center and know you have control of your physical container gives you the foundation to keep in check your emotions and thoughts. Unlike a leaf in a tornado that is at the mercy of the wind, a kite that is tethered and held with stability can be whipped around, but never fly away. The kite can experience the extremes of its boundaries in the safety of its range.

We want to be like the kite. We want the opportunity to feel, explore, challenge and push the boundaries, but we want to be able to do that in the context of knowing our limits and respecting healthy boundaries. It is a fine dance between the two, and often we may find ourselves spending too much time one way or another. The beauty of karma is that we can learn through consequence. If an action, or lack of action creates an unfavourable result, change the action and see what happens.

This is the value of failure. Only those who try and push the limits will ever learn how much space they have to play, without losing their ground. We must allow ourselves to go slightly beyond that which is comfortable, to know if we have ventured into unhealthy territory or if we have been stuck in a box which stops us from living a life to its potential. We have to allow times in life when failure becomes the goalpost for progress, rather than the dreaded fear that comes with being frozen in a state that doesn’t allow life to be lived. To find the balance between the two is the sweet spot, but only through trial and error will we ever learn the edges of existence that provide the greatest opportunity to thrive.

I still have a long way to go in this regard. There are many parts of my life that I have pushed the boundaries, failed, lost and hurt myself and others. However, there are many things that I am thrilled that I have accomplished. Just like with my physical health, I love this part the most. Knowing I can still do and be so much better than I am, gives me a path to be on to feel like progress is being attained, no matter my age. I have thought in the past about the moment I would retire, and all that means to me is the moment I leave this planet. Until then, I will continue to share the understandings I have gained.

We don’t need to be without flaws to understand the nature of excellence. What we need to have is a solid stance within -- to know that you are okay no matter where you are, what you offer the world or your personal situation whatever that may be. What is important is knowing that you can change anything about yourself, your body, your beliefs and your mindset, if you want to.

We don’t need to be without flaws to understand the nature of excellence. What we need to have is a solid stance within -- to know that you are okay no matter where you are, what you offer the world or your personal situation whatever that may be. What is important is knowing that you can change anything about yourself, your body, your beliefs and your mindset, if you want to.

Body, mind and spirit travel together. Focusing on restructuring your cellular alignment is a very direct and palpable way to make progress, and once you begin with the physical body, the mind and spirit follow. If you are unhappy with certain aspects of yourself (and who isn’t), then give this practice a try. We aren’t here for a long time, even though it can feel like an eternity to some. But on your deathbed, when looking back at your life, only the things you didn’t try will be the regrets you feel.

So, fail often, fail fast and fail forward. Use failure as a gift that teaches you to exceed the mundane while finding the edges to play. Allow yourself to be tethered so the kite that is your spirit can roam and experience all the opportunities and joys that life has to offer. And when you move beyond the limit of acceptance, forgive yourself and try again. A solid connection to the ground is all you need!
