Fascia is Fascinating!

Fascia is a fascinating system. In fact, they are the same word. Is that a coincidence? This system is taking the world by storm with all of the research that is happening around it. To understand the fascia and how to keep it healthy, in my opinion, is the most important thing we can do to live the healthiest life and use our time here to leave the legacy that we are meant to.

I believe that every single person has a unique gift that they are meant to share with the world. In fact, I have a picture on my wall that I received from my teachers during one of our live teacher events. It says – “The goal of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”. This is such a beautiful reminder that we are here for a reason, not just to get through each day until the end.

With fascia now in the forefront, I feel this is the time when we can all step into our power, find that unique spark and be excited about the life we are born to live. The cool thing is that our God given intelligence is literally embedded on the surface membrane of every single cell in our body. In Gregg Braden’s “The God Code”, he goes into detail explaining this. Whenever I am feeling down, scared or frustrated with life, I remember this, and it awakens me from my slumber.

To be able to connect with our cells in this magical way, we need to have access to them. The thing about fascia, is that adhesions and scar tissue become riddled throughout this system due to injury, surgery, unconscious posture and stress. They block the flow of blood and oxygen to cells, creating a barrier, essentially fencing them off from our awareness. All of the information that is stored on those cells becomes hidden from our consciousness, leaving us searching for answers outside of ourselves, instead of within.

When you understand how to take care of your fascia, you can melt the adhesions and scar tissue that previously blocked flow, so to gain access to your cells to hear what they are saying. This is an exciting moment when you first realize this, as the connection to your higher self permeates through your being, and that feeling of infinite connection to everything begins to feel more real.

Suddenly, you become excited about life. The fear and stress that are external to you becomes a signal that you can turn off, and you then tune into a higher frequency -- that of love. Just like being in love when you feel energized and excited every moment, you become infatuated with yourself – not in an egotistical way, but with a childlike enthusiasm. When you can feel this inside yourself, you find the magic that life has to offer, and the mundane activities of daily life become, like when you were a kid, an exploration of the moment with awe and wonder.

From the perspective of how you use your body every day, the key to this is to not allow yourself to fall into postural habits that forge a pathway of descent. Unconscious posture and breath are the culprits. When you overuse one side of your body from being right or left-handed, combined with unconsciously breathing through the muscles of the upper chest, grooves in your system are set in place that create a wear pattern that gains momentum over time. This is how you age the way you do – but you don’t have to!

It’s what we do all the time that matters most. How many times do you tie your shoes, pick up a glass, wash a dish, get up from a chair . . . these seemingly mundane activities are the key to how you age. Learning to use your body consciously changes the aging game. You become the driver of your destiny, rather than genetics and gravity. You are not locked into a prison that you were born into -- you can change anything you choose, with a little understanding of your fascinating fascia.

In March, as a community, we are going to step into a new awareness. We are taking our program – the 30 Day Posture Reset and adding a daily shift to a mundane task. You can’t change everything all at once, but in a month, if change is continual through a day-to-day shift in awareness, magic can happen.

Join us as we venture into this next stage of our fascia education, and enjoy the benefits of connecting to your deeper cells so they can share with you the amazing life you were put here to live.
