How is it that some can accomplish things that seem inconceivable to another? What is it that allows someone to push beyond their own boundaries to discover what they are truly capable of?
When you are ignited by passion, it fuels your body, mind and spirit to act as a whole and you are exactly in sync with everything that you are and that you can be.
When the body and mind are functioning optimally, they are able to respond to the most inner desires of the soul. The soul has an ability to create a desire within the mind. The mind is more powerful than the body and can command the body to accomplish feats that would ordinarily seem impossible. When your actions resonate with the desires of the soul, passion is effortlessly created.
Despite your current circumstances, it’s your passion that continues to push you forward. A lack of it can cause you to lose the will to strive for greatness. When you no longer have the resources to handle the forces around or within you, it is interpreted as stress.
We experience physical forces from falls, accidents/injury, poor posture, exercise or improper ergonomics. Chemical forces include air pollution, chemicals in water/food, drugs and environmental toxins. Mental/Emotional forces include stress that stem from relationships with ourselves and with others and responsibilities at home or at work.
When the body’s stress response is activated there is a shift in the functioning of your nervous system that cause structural shifts in your spine and body. Such a shift is both normal and beneficial in times of acute stress. However, if these shifts remain after the acute stressful event is over, they can have an impact on your health and well-being. Tension in the nerves cause the joints of the spine to restrict movement and the surrounding muscles become stiff. When our nervous system cannot adapt, stress accumulates, and it can distract you from your goals by creating separateness between the body and mind.
At BodyMind Wellness Studio we focus on developing an optimal connection between the body and the brain. Using light touches at specific vertebral segments along the spine, tension is eased within the spinal cord. The brain becomes aware of the tension within the joints and muscles and initiates greater movement and deeper breath allowing for a release. Over time the body adapts to learning new strategies to self-regulate and to heal. Releasing tension within the nervous system allows for optimal functioning, both mental and physical.
When the mind and the body work in accordance, the channel to your innermost desires becomes clearer and more accessible. When the journey towards a goal is fueled by passion, it creates the motivation necessary to inspire the mind to will the body to attain the spectacular desires of the soul.
