How to Become a Moving Prayer by Gaylyn Aitken

Being well is being well with one’s self. When one is in harmony with the flow of nature the only resistance is the natural counter force of opposing energy that sets us effortlessly and powerfully into motion. Motion begetting motion.

I love how we’re born with all the apparatus necessary to sustain and nurture life.

We’re self healing and self adjusting. Our body has an intelligence that developed long before our mind and for many is an unacknowledged and unknown potential.

In seeking to improve or change a situation in one’s life the shortest route is going back to the more primal stages of movement growth, before the mind directed the nervous system to behave in accordance with one’s culture and belief systems.

The body is our vehicle. Everything we are, both seen and unseen are housed in this vehicle, where it moves, all moves. We’re a universe unto our self, connected to our environment through the body’s sensory organs.

When parts of our body are no longer involved in our every day movement patterns, the nervous system closes down the movement circuitry to those parts. Not only is there less differentiation, there’s less feeling, so there’s less sensory information transmitted to the central nervous system. It doesn’t get the full picture of what’s going on inside and outside of us. The response to information received is appropriate to the message but not the situation.

When we turn our focus to the feeling of the breath and the body moving to its rhythm, we find a space of calm within that primal universal motion that can guide us to reconnect feeling through awareness.

This is a journey of self discovery as we relearn how to move naturally, the way we were designed to. The first requirement is a change of mind, to come to an agreement with one’s self to be open to what one feels instead of what one believes.

It’s not about what style of movement is best, the nervous system doesn’t know its doing Yoga or Tai Chi or a work out in the gym. It only knows it’s moving, so it’s not about what you’re doing, but how connected or aware you are to the feeling of your body in motion. The information transmitted to your central nervous system and the response is the conversation you have throughout your entire being.

The relationships we have with others and the world in general is relative to the quality of the relationship we have with our self. The more connected we are to our vehicle, the deeper our connection is to all that we are and our environment.

We can then observe events and see them for what they are and respond appropriately instead of emotionally. In this way we guide our self through life, navigating around obstacles and directing our self with awareness.

We’re a moving prayer, shaping our life through awareness and a bodyfull free thinker.       E:
