I watch people’s bodies, I am fascinated with how the human form moves through space.
No, this is not just because I’m a dirty old man.
I am just absolutely fascinated by the vehicle of the soul.
When I look at people’s bodies that show formidable signs of aging, I notice a common denominator.
I see that there is always one part of the body that has had some kind of chronic pain that was not alleviated.
To deal with this pain the body starts to mold and protect itself around this chronic area.
Much like how a tree will misshape itself in and around a NYC metal gate.
Clearly this misalignment throws the whole system out of whack.
Next thing ya know vertebrae are pinching nerves limiting the signal the brain can send to the rest of the body. Pain increases and strength is lost, yada yada yada.
Let’s examine chronic pain. And in this article I am referring to chronic pain that was not induced by impact ( ie a car accident).
What is chronic pain?
From a Committed Impulse viewpoint, chronic pain is the result of a low tolerance for certain emotions.
Let’s break that down.
Our body operates at it’s highest potential, and stays young, when we allow the full gamut of sensation or emotion ( I use those words interchangeably) to be experienced.
But when our mind decides that some sensations are good and some are bad, well that’s where the trouble starts.
When the “bad” sensation emerges ( Which is totally normal, and healthy, by the way.), we try to get rid of it by one of three ways. We either suppress the sensation, analyze it, or dramatize the sensation.
(Oh my God I feel so…!)
Look, as long as we believe that there are truly bad sensations, there’s only one logical thing to do.
Get rid of them!
But can we really get rid of those “bad” sensations, or emotions?
When we suppress, analyze or dramatize our sensations – we lock them in our body.
The first sign of this locking is some tightness, then some tension, then chronic pain. This is followed by a way of moving to compensate for that pain.
Next thing you know, the body’s aging process has accelerated. And eventually, if not addressed, illness results.
So, what to do to keep your beautiful body spunky?
Committed Impulse is all about increasing your tolerance for YOU.
Feel ALL the sensations when they are there. Hey, they’re only sensations – don’t give them so much meaning.
To be clear – when you’re truly feeling sensations – you’re not dramatizing or analyzing why you’re feeling something – you’re just experiencing. Big difference!
Remember, when we attempt to monitor nature – which in this case is the fluctuating sensations inside our bodies – the result is that we speed up the aging process.
So all you sexy mamas and papas, I ask one thing of you…
feel what’s going on in that hot body of yours – it takes much less energy than suppressing, analyzing or dramatizing.
Your body’s engine thrives and stays young.
