I won’t lie, it upsets me to the bone seeing fitness people pushing for heavier loads and higher volumes, to build muscle, burn fat, look the best, be the fastest, be the strongest, the biggest, etc. and their breathing is not only poor, but quite often nonexistent🤣😠. As the singer that I am, this “let me puff out my chest so that I look like I’m breathing” offends my soul. Not only that, but their coordination and balance were forgotten sometime between their conception day and their birthday (i.e. never addressed).
The muse comes from above, ready to flow in the means that has chosen: writing, singing, painting, acting, etc. This needs to be put into action, physically (voice, hands, body), in order for the world to perceive our art. So our body needs to move. We need our body to be strong and with energy in order to raise a strong signal. Physical motion brings us to the now. It brings whatever dream or creation we have in the mind, to earth. If we are stagnant, the flow is slow, it can even get stuck.
Even knowing lots of concepts, one never really has all the answers. Such is human nature.
I got inspired by one of my clients to write about this article, because her situation applies to many people. When I met her, she lived absorbing the sorrows and miseries of her clients. She put herself down to please others. She is extremely empathetic, compassionate, sweet… and she walked with her shoulders down, a rounded back, slouching, bending over to the point I almost had to bend my neck looking for her face to meet her eyes. She was very wobbly on her knee and elbow joints, almost as if her joints were saying ‘sorry for being myself’, apologizing and saying thank you for everything to everyone, putting everybody’s needs first before hers.
