I conducted a One on One Qigong/Taiji class today and observed that the women I was teaching had a disconnection from the upper part of her body to the lower half. It was like they weren’t communicating with each other. I have seen this many times when people are walking and their legs are moving and it looks like the rest the body is following. I don’t think it’s a personal problem, I think it is a societal problem with more people spending a lot of time in their heads with the constant busy mind dilemma.
I gave her Qigong exercises to do to help reconnect the upper and lower parts of her body and a practice to help rectify this imbalance. By the end of the lesson her body was moving as a whole more fluidly, but she will need to keep practicing.
The annoying part is that you may not be aware if you are doing this or not and it will have become a normal way of moving to you. To keep a high level of health and to keep the energy or Qi and blood circulating efficiently this connection is vital, it’s like the steering wheel of your car not talking to the front wheels and the front wheels are just on auto pilot. In the human body this kind of disconnection can create hip, knee and back problems and pain.
I used another example to explain this dysfunction to this person, which was very effective. I gave her an example of it, it’s like talking from your head or talking from your whole body. Now this is difficult to write down and explain, I will give an example in the video I will put up on Youtube, which will better explain it. I talked to her from just my head then I talked from my whole body, the difference was quite noticeable and it definitely felt different saying it.
So I encourage you to watch yourself walking and observe how you walk and the next time your talking to somebody watch how you are talking to them. Is it from your head of your body/heart?
Try them both.
