bodily tool #1
Yes! We're kicking-off with one of my favourite movements. One that changed my relationship with and understanding of my body for good. I call it the earthquake. Since I've come to known this exercise I've been doing it (almost) every day. It's amazing. And the long-term results are even more amazing..
After a few weeks of doing this movement regularly, you'll feel incredibly light. Free of baggage.
There is less 'old stuff' stuck in your physical body that's weighing you down and influencing your life. Old, unprocessed emotions & energies. You don't need to carry that around, love.
Also, I've personally experienced that the longer you do the earthquake, as in trúly implementing it in your life, the more sensitive you (& your body) will become.
Say hello to more intense pleasure and sensation.
By doing the earthquake you are, quite literally, shaking 'petrified' energies to the surface (like lava bubbling up) and ask your body to let go and heal. Re-group.
So you take care of your energy(body) this way, all that is rigid or blocking your flow, you get rid of. If you ask me, it's necessary upkeep. Giving your body the opportunity to release anything it's been (unnecessary) holding onto. In our society, we tend to hold in a lót, so doing this daily is BLISS.
This movement is the últimate release.
:: HOW TO ::
Implement this movement in your life at a set time every day this week.
Maybe when you've just woken up, before preparing your breakfast or maybe before stepping into bed at night. It doesn't matter when, but take a specific time of the day.
Set an alarm now or stick a post-it where you can see it, so you'll remember to do the earthquake.
And if you feel like doing it multiple times a day, go for it!
I recommend this because a new movement only 'sticks' when it's done regularly. Creating a new pathway in your body by doing it regularly, so that it'll be added to your body's vocabulary. This goes for every exercise btw.
When you do the exercise only once you won't (truly) reap the benefits and you won't remember it in your system. Just saying, be consistent if you want to experience the 'results' I talked about.
After a while your body will (subconsciously) remember the movement as an option, and you'll start to feel when it's time for some earthquakes. For some release. Your body will ásk for it.
So when it's 'saved' in your system and vocabulary, you can go at it intuitively and do it whenever.
But still, I'm all for daily upkeep.

And above all - this goes for all of the exercises that I'm sharing in this training - make sure that you feel SAFE to release. Maybe close the curtains. Ask for protection and guidance. Have a blanket ready to wrap around you when you are done to comfort yourself. Ask someone for a hug after if you went in really deep.
And take a walk or journal after, touch your body to 'come back into reality' again.
Because doing this will make you tap into old emotions that needed processing. Emotions you couldn't deal with at the time - but now you can. This can go deep & dirty, but know that it's ok. You can take it now, move through it, or it wouldn't come up.
So. Are you ready?
#1 - Stand up, unlock your knees & close your eyes.
#2 - Start bouncing your whole body softly from the knees. Feel into where your body wants to be 'shaken' and move around a bit while doing the bouncing. If not, know that simply doing the bouncing is enough too. Energy will start to come loose after a while.
Oh, and a good tip! When you start to feel like you're 'done' with it, stick with it for another minute. Usually the moment when we get uncomfortable and want to quit, is the moment before a 'breakthrough'. But our mind can act up, trying to 'keep you safe' and not wanting to go there. Keep moving (through it).
