“I Am Free to Agree With Gravity”

“I am free to agree with gravity”

Say this thought to yourself little and often throughout the day. Or may be wait until you can enjoy a nap or its bedtime.  

 Write it, draw it, meditate on it.  Stick a Post It on a mirror.  Set yourself a reminder on your phone if you’d like to.

Practicing this thought throughout the day will help you notice this sequence and support you to navigate daily life in many ways.

As many of you know, one of Alexander’s major discoveries about us mammals is that the relationship of the head and spine govern the coordination of the rest of us.  Yes – all of us!  Physical, mental, emotional, spiritual – we don’t separate – its all one thing – our Self.

“I am free to agree with gravity”

The Constructive Conscious Thought for today – I am free to agree with gravity.

Why wouldn’t I? – and Of Course I Do!  I hear you say to yourself – or shout at me through the screen.  Let me know if this is what you thought or did!

Some of the simplest things can surprise us if we really stop to think.

Try this little thought – I am free to agree with gravity.  And just notice what you notice.

Maybe there is a shift, maybe you don’t sense it.  Either is ok.

If you did notice something – what happened?  

I noticed a slight settling into myself, onto the stool, of my feet onto the rug.  Not much, but enough to detect a difference.  Enough to suggest that in some small and significant way, I may not entirely have been agreeing with gravity before!

I bet I”m not alone… so

If we aren’t agreeing with gravity – what are we doing with it?  Well either we are disagreeing with it, resisting it in some way, or we are trying to manufacture the downward force ourselves by pressing down into the ground.

Both are futile and a waste of energy.

Please be kind to yourself with this simple thought, and agree with this amazing natural force.  Whether we are standing, sitting, or floating on water like the mandarin ducks pictured above – we can agree with gravity, and simply rest on the surface we are on.

Make everyday life a little easier – please agree with gravity – just for now!

I’d love to know how this exercise is for you?  What do you notice?  How does your body respond?

Tomorrow we learn about gravity’s twin – yes its true!
