As energetic beings with over filled schedules, our body awareness or energy, is important. I learned this so well and clearly from the Himalayan Masters. The most important thing is to find ways through out your day to get out of the cortisol of adrenal living and into the parasympathetic nervous system. We have trained ourselves to be in a level of panic all day that is not necessary. We only need that intense way of being when in intensity, battle, feel threatened or in a crisis. We can be aware of our body and create health through this simple practice
The parasympathetic nervous system is when we are in the flow. We feel connected, not rushed but moving in confidence, on the ball, open to new opportunities, creative and in the magic of life. Small coincidences happen, things show up, we are tapped into our intuition and feel good about our lives. Just being in this more relaxed state of oxytocin shifts our life tremendously, hourly, daily and in general. It is as simple as finding ways to get into this pleasure, relaxed nervous system.
How do we do this? There are so many ways. Most know of oxytocin as the pleasure hormone. It is released in giggles, sex, delicious eating, healing treatments, relaxation, vacationing, creativity, when doing something we love. The list goes on with all the things that bring you joy and pleasure. I tell people to create this list of small and large ways you could have more pleasure and joy in life. Reading a good book, being in nature, a good cup of tea, a great conversation with a child or friend, the list endless as we are.
We notice our state throughout the day, how our body feels by taking a moment to check in. If we are stressed or scurrying, we ask ourselves, "Do I need to be in this intense flight or fight state?" If not, and most times the answer is no, we find a way to bring ourselves back to a pleasure, relaxed state. I have a breath exercise that can shift us. You can play some good music, breath 10 deep breaths, take a break, slow down, stop outside somewhere and see the beauty, think of the blessings, find anything that can bring our energy back in line with this flow pace.
Body care is that simple and awareness supports us to health. Magically, as we do this, our body begins to operate the innate health system and bring us in that parasympathetic more often without us thinking. We listen and connect with our body and it shares a greater state. It is a natural way we are to move. Our body starts to eat right, move more smoothly, be more connected and aware of the world. If we are in rush and focus always, we are going too fast to really participate fully in the world, noticing the signs of our body and the things around us supporting our direction.
Noticing our state by paying attention, realizing we could create calm to move in flow and then doing something in that moment for a moment to shift us to that. This alone supports great health on all levels. We connect more to ourselves, know ourselves and patterns, and realize our power to change it in the moment. Health, bliss, beauty, joy, all these things begin to be part of lives easily by being aware.
I inspire you to make this the most important body care there is. Notice yourself, your state, your body, your emotions and mind. If it is not where you need to be, do something easy to shift you back toward what state you want. You give yourself a momentary pleasure, reset your flow and life begins to appear beautiful again. Positivity, possibilities, ideas, all these things come from this parasympathetic state of being. It is what we are meant to be riding in most all the time. The Yoga of Living, paying attention to yourself, your emotions and state throughout your day. All becomes easier and alert clarity is the result. As you do this, listen and know yourself through your daily life, all other things shift and change how we live. Life becomes sensually magical!
