On the circle session last night, one of the members said they were processing too much tension through their body.
This morning during my quiet reflection time, I realized I was processing too much tension through words and thoughts and not ENOUGH through my body!
Today’s Morning Mile was with music and dance down the trail.
Earlier I would have said my body felt scared. When I asked my being how scared I was, it was actually only a 2 out of 10. That’s pretty baseline for me. So… what it was was a build-up of tension that needed to be expressed.
Allergic to Exercise, Delighted with Expression
Yeah, I am allergic to exercise. The word and the energy around it – for me – feels flat. Emotionless. Energy expended without being nourished by the artistry of it.
Expression… ahhh. Dancing down the trail, taking moments to savor what pops into view, even laughing with the person who walked up behind me and had to “applaud” me to get my attention with my earbuds in… this both processed the energy AND nourished me.
How would you like to express yourself through your body?
What stops you from doing that – if anything?
