Did you know SLOW MOTION CUTS THROUGH COMMOTION whether you are experiencing physical commotion, mental commotion or energetic commotion? Slow, deep awareness of our senses TURNS ON our BODY INTELLIGENCE and cuts through commotion which, the field of neuroscience has proven, creates a fertile ground in the prefrontal cortex of the brain for neuroplasticity. Try it for yourself to resolve old conditioning, chronic pain and ISSUES IN YOUR TISSUES by exploring and experiencing YOUR innate wisdom through your Body Current®.

Body Current® Awareness Exercise:
Come to a place of awareness through your sensory perception. Make this true to YOU.
You can focus your awareness on any of the senses that are magnified for you in the moment: What do you taste? What do you feel? What smells are you aware of in the moment? Where do you sense expansion? Can you soften into any sensation of tension? Can you name the sounds you are hearing? Can you hear these sounds and feel these sensations through raw vibration without the labels and contexts of past conditioning? What sensations and textures are you feeling in your skeletal muscular system? What are your organs sharing with you? Can you hear, feel, see and taste what is being communicated or can you imagine with great detail what is being expressed?
Responding with open curiosity and awareness to this information is how we adjust and align to balance systemically avoiding dis-ease in the body, mind and spirit. This experience is unique to YOU and all you have to do is turn on your OPEN AWARENESS through the senses OBSERVING AND LISTENING to what is being communicated through YOUR body’s intelligence. The more you DON’T DO and JUST BE, the vaster your awareness will be. Take several minutes to notice who is doing the noticing and what your body is communicating in the moment without judgement or labels, just open playful awareness. Let thoughts just come and go without following any line of thought. Rest in the awareness of what is arising through deep listening to the sensations within you and around you. Notice your current of energy and the pulse of life that is abiding and flowing in each moment.
Once you feel this place of resting as awareness, begin to integrate long, slow deep breathing and any smooth and slow authentic movements that arise spontaneously. Surrender into and notice, without judgement or filters, any areas of tension, contraction or resistance that come to the surface. Simply rest in the awareness of the raw sensation with radical allowing and child-like novel wonderment trying not to map to the labels of pain, trauma, etc. of past conditioning. You may notice the impermanence of each sensation or you may begin to recall stories and issues that are living in your tissues. Try not to hold onto any particular sensation but simply allow for the body’s intelligence to begin to navigate from your inner compass as you move slow and smooth.
How slow can you go? How aware can you BE? Even in the midst of tension and stress, can you BE in a place of harmony?
When you feel complete with this exercise, gently release the focus on the exercise while continuing to keep your Body Current® wisdom ON. Notice the shifts you experience throughout your day as you navigate from your inner compass of your Body Current®. Remember, this is YOUR unique body intelligence. Empower yourself to create new neural grooves that are true to YOU for health and well-being.
Each Body Current® experience is unique to YOU, so integrate anything that resonates and discard anything that does not feel authentic.
