As I find more to write about, talk about and share with my clients and students, this is where I will share it.
What expectations are you holding on to right now? Do these have you stuck and frustrated because they aren’t working out exactly how you expected?
It’s perfectly OK to dream, to create, to have purpose in your life. But, getting fixated on how you will get there and trying to control every step of the way is not helpful. You will get caught up in the details and forget to enjoy the process.
The Function of Your Muscles Effects How You Feel.
Your muscles are what hold your body together, allow you to move and help your body function effectively. When our muscles “activate” they contract either pulling the limb in a direction or working along other muscles to stabilise a joint. When the muscle relaxes it allows for the muscles opposing them to either contract and move the limb in a different direction or to return the limb to a neutral position. When muscles don’t work in synergy then it can have an effect on the balance and movement of the body causing postural deviations, pain, inflexibility and fatigue.
Life is not a smooth straight road. There are hills. There are bumps and dips. There are detours. There are twists and turns. However, all roads have lead you to who you are today. For some of us, this journey has come with a large amount of trauma and stress that, although it may no longer be current, it is still effecting us today.
Stress isn’t all bad!!
In psychology, stress is a reaction to a real or perceived threat. This functions to motivate us into action and to keep us alive and functioning. There are a number of physiological responses that take place in the body when this occurs. All of these responses are to stimulate the body and the mind to function at its peak.
This weeks theme with clients has been “feeling lost” each client feeling like they were overwhelmed with the need to have a path laid out in front of them and need to be on that specific path at all times in their life. The message for them was to release any expectations as to what that is going to look like and how it “should be”, leaving space open for them to create and welcome in the “knowing” feeling when they come across the next step to take.
Sometimes we put so much expectation on the end picture, that we forget to be present in today, and make use of the experiences that offer stepping stones of knowledge and experience towards a goal that we may or may not be conscious of yet. When we focus too much on trying to figure out the bigger picture, we miss the little intuitive pulls to use the stepping stones that have been presented to us.
