Love yourself ~ Heal yourself

Deep in the heart of our body flows our Life force.

It moves up and down our spine through our energy centers called our Chakras.

 

Before this diagnosis of MS, I did not know everything is energy.

Thoughts are things. They carry energy.

 

I did not know I had the power to NOTICE my thoughts.

I did not know I had the power to CHOOSE my thoughts.

 

Now I know those powers were given to us.

They are our birth rights. They are gifts!

We can NOTICE our thoughts.

We can choose to entertain a disempowering thought.

We can choose to entertain an empowering thought.

We can CHOOSE.

 

All human beings had a fundamental wound at the beginning of their life.

It is one of the well known wound: abandonment, rejection, non recognition, betrayal, abuse, humiliation, injustice and the obligation to be happy.

 

This wound is physical and unconscious. It is attached to our Life force.

This fundamental wound creates in us the impulse to die.

 

Tensions or protections get installed around this fundamental wound.

They make it so we don’t feel the pain of our fundamental wound.

They get installed in layers, one on top on the other.

Anytime we notice a thought or have a feeling that relates to any one of these wounds, we can love and heal ourselves.

We can give our inner child what he or she needs.

 

*Loving yourself is not abandoning yourself.

Loving yourself is being present to yourself. It is developing a sense of your own presence. It is finding a sense of security within yourself.

 

*Loving yourself is not rejecting yourself and not judging yourself.

Loving yourself is welcoming and embracing yourself completely as you are. Loving yourself is accepting all the different parts of yourself. It is accepting your strengths and weaknesses.

 

*Loving yourself is recognizing yourself.

It is recognizing your very own existence. It is acknowledging all that you are, all that you do and all your accomplishments. It is recognizing all of who you are.

 

*Loving yourself is not betraying yourself.

Loving yourself is being committed to yourself. It is having confidence in yourself and trusting in yourself.

 

*Loving yourself is not abusing yourself physical or mentally or both.

Loving yourself is being kind to yourself and being gentle with yourself.

 

*Loving yourself is not humiliating yourself.

Loving yourself is respecting yourself. It is honoring your very nature and your self identity.

 

*Loving yourself is not being unjust with yourself.

Loving yourself is treating yourself with justice and fairness.

 

*Loving yourself is not forcing yourself to be happy.

Loving yourself is allowing yourself to feel whatever it is you are feeling in this moment. It is allowing yourself to be yourself.

 

Can you end the trance and wake up to your powers of NOTICING and CHOOSING?

Can you develop your INNER LOVING PARENTS to heal your INNER CHILD?

All this child needs is your LOVE! 💜

What is holistic bodywork?

This holistic bodywork method is to liberate the tensions from the body and from the mind. I will experience it also liberates stuck emotions from the body.

Physical tensions

The method begins with the practice of physical movements.

The movements gently OPEN, STRETCH and HARMONIZE every 6OO+ muscles in the body.

 

At first when I practiced the physical movements it was awfully painful!

In the beginning I could not even practice some of them!

I had to visualize!

I could not believe the pain I felt when I gently massaged a muscle!

Over time the pain gradually subsided!

Eventually I would practice the same movements and experience pure pleasure!

 

We had movements designed to OPEN the muscles.

 

They allow external energy to come into the body with the use of the movements and the tools used in the movements.

 

We used tools like a tennis ball, a foam ball, a stick covered with foam, a small cushion, etc.

 

The movements could be circles with the arms, the legs, rotations of the head, pelvic tilts, leg extensions, explorations of the zero-point (the point with no gravity) with the arm or the leg, side openings, etc.

 

They also allow the energy located deep in the center of the body to be liberated and come up to the surface of the body.

 

We had movements designed to STRETCH the muscles.

They always follow an opening movement.

 

These movements give a direction to the energy just released.

They also allow the energy released to be communicated to the different layers of the body.

 

The tools used can be the same as for the opening movements.

 

We had movements designed to HARMONIZE the whole body.

 

These are equilibrium movements to wrap back up the different muscular layer of the whole body after they have been opened and stretched.

 

They work at bringing harmony and equilibrium between the left and right sides of the body, between the top and the bottom parts of the body.

 

They integrate the different hemisphere of the body with the center of the body. They are very soothing.

 

These require very little tools, if any.

 

These movements always close a holistic bodywork session.

 

Every 600+ muscle in my body was visited! Every muscle was visited repeatedly, very gently and slowly, over many years!

 

Every tension was softened!

 

This bodywork was like a psychoanalysis of my body.

 

The body is the unconscious mind.

 

Practicing bodywork is a time to listen to and liberate the memories and beliefs stored in the body.

 

The body is a perfect record of the past! Do you know the body does not lie?

 

It is smarter than us! It is animated with the power of life herself 💜

Physical tensions

Deep in the heart of our body runs our Life force.

It is where our essence resides.

It is where Joy, Love, Creativity, Healing and Light live.

 

In the heart of our body lie our spiral cord, our intrinsic muscles and our nervous system.

 

I practiced holistic bodywork intensely for more than 2 years.

I will always practice it as there is no end in freeing myself of the burden of my personality to get in touch with the lightness of my being.

 

It made me realize I had been living in the prison of my tensed muscles.

 

My body had been like a cylinder made of concrete!

No life could come in me. No life could come out of me.

MS invited me to free myself!

 

There are 8 types of tensions according to Marie Lise Labonté.

 

A tension gets created in our body when our reptilian brain perceives a threat or danger and sends a signal to our muscles to contract.

It is an unconscious process.

It protects us.

Until it imprisons us and eventually can cause discomfort or disease.

The goal of this approach is to soften our tensions.

It is not to get rid of them!

 

#1 The fundamental tension in the ocular region: the eyes and the skull: the forehead, the nose, the cheeks and the ears.

It begins in our mother’s womb to 2 years old.

 

#2 The tension of helplessness in the oral and neck regions: the chin, the throat, the occiput, the lips, the jaws, the tongue and the muscles in the deep region of neck.

It gets installed from 2 to 7 years old.

 

#3 The tension of the poorly loved in the thoracic region: the intercostal muscles, the pectoralis, the deltoids and the arms muscles.

It gets created from 4 to 10 years old.

 

#4 The tension of protection in the diaphragmatic region: the diaphragm.

It gets installed from 5 to 21 years old.

 

These four first tensions seal our inner world.

They make us lose contact with our inner world, our identity.

We start to identify with the outer world.

 

#5-#6 The parental tension and the tension of belonging in the abdominal region: the abdominal, the lateral and back muscles.

This parental tension gets installed from 5 to 18 years old.

This tension of belonging gets installed from 13 to 21 years old.

 

#7-#8 The narcissistic and social tensions in the pelvic area: most muscles of the pelvis, the hips and the legs.

The narcissistic tension is created from 13 years old.

The social tension comes last from 30 years old.

 

All this information is based on the work of Marie Lise Labonté.

She was influenced by the vision of Dr Wilhelm Reich, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst and Ida Rolf who created Rolfing.

 

Can you see how the body is perfect at protecting what is most precious at the heart of your body? 💜

Miraculous Body!

 

Our bodies are miracles!

 

If you don’t believe in miracles, perhaps you have forgotten you were born one!

 

I sure had forgotten!

 

For me, my body had always been an inanimate machine designed to get me from point A to point B. Silently please!

 

I did not know my body could speak.

I did not know my body had the intelligence of LIFE herself!

 

When I did my holistic bodywork training,

http://marieliselabonte.com/methodes/mlc-methode-de-liberation-des-cuirasses/

 

I learned that our bodies have more than 600 muscles.

I learned that our bodies have more than 200 bones.

I learned that our bodies have 11 systems all working in harmony to maintain our homeostasis.

 

We have our skeletal system, our muscular system, our nervous system, our endocrine system, our cardiovascular system, our lymphatic system (immune system), our respiratory system, our digestive system, our urinary system, our reproductive system and our integumentary system (skin)!

 

I started to realize that my body is not a machine.

My body is in fact a miracle!

Our bodies are miracles!

 

All the amazing functions it performs without us even being aware of it!

It is divinely orchestrated! It is intelligent beyond human intelligence!

 

We could think it is only biology. We could think it all comes from the autonomic nervous system. We could think it only comes from the organs, tissues, cells, molecules, atoms and subatomic particle.

 

But from a quantum perspective, it is all energy. The same energy that makes up the whole universe! Who animates that energy if not a Loving Intelligence, as Dr. Joe Dispenza reasons?

 

The training had not officially begun that I was already in a state of amazement for my miraculous body!

 

Do you know your body is intelligent as it is animated by LIFE herself? 💜
