What is Our Capacity?

What is Our Capacity?

“Capacity” determines how integration can occur through the enactment of the reconciling force. The reactive and receptive force is balanced by a third force, called the reconciling force. Overall, we are receiving a multitude of impulses per millisecond, yet, we can only perceive a limited number of them in our conscious awareness. Fortunately, whoever or whatever created us knew what they were doing. Most of our life, receiving input and giving output is organized sub-cortically. What this means is that these processes do not actually require our awareness, they are running in...

Why Do We Resist the Hurt?

Why Do We Resist the Hurt?

The obstacles to healing are the same as the obstacles to prayer or contemplation. The body gives us access to the truth of the present state of ​our physical reality. The body lets us know what is going on, and it does this through a process called, “awareness,” a process that connects us with the felt-sense in the body, which is like tuning in to a particular sensory language. Often, this kind of awareness process is not congruent with what we tell ourselves and hide fro ourselves as our true state of well-being. Across our years growing up and over time, we learn how to adapt...

The Body is the Resource…

Everything created and manifested contains a blueprint of the primal source of all things. Deeply imbedded in all material substances is the origin and the energetic presence of the unmanifested, unconditioned reality. How can it (the unconditioned reality) ever be separate and divided, when it is the very raw essence of all things? Many spiritual disciplines have body-based practices to bring us back home from being attached to a conditioned reality of two opposites profoundly experienced as separate parts and opposing in nature to something much more subtle and profound, easily overlooked...

When a Life Experience is Not Metabolized…

Any life experience too overwhelming for the capacity in our nervous system will be responded to by containing the charge and walling this charge off from affecting the nervous system as a whole, as a way of preventing it from short circuiting. This is a highly intelligent response, prioritizing survival needs in relationship to secondary needs. We need to survive first before we can reflect and inquire into our lives. By the time we are adults, many undercover energy pockets have been created in our physical bodies. Even though these can go for a long time unnoticed. These will eventually...

Understanding the Connections

Understanding the Connections

It is apparent to most of us, upon close observation, that everything is interconnected and dependent on one another. Recent neuroscience and epigenetics shows that there is a way that information is translated somehow when there is a need or attention is placed towards a desired function in the physical structure. We are calling this “gene expression.” This is a secondary element, in addition to the genetic make-up, for a gene to come to full expression. The body is always looking for correcting and balancing, nurturing and eliminating, activating and passifying for an optimally...
