- Let’s say that everyone in their pursuit of perfection and attempt to do a good job in life tends to squeeze in on their musculoskeletal system. Your brain is telling your body to buckle up and bear down for this important task you are about to perform. This can happen if you’re doing something you’re passionate about, or during ordinary tasks like tying your shoe. Let’s call this bearing down quality locking.
Locking yourself into a task or position results in pulling your vertebrae closer together and holding your breath.
Don’t take my word for it. Notice for yourself.
Simply unlocking yourself lets the space containing those living discs full of magic goo between all your vertebrae expand.
Keep it simple. Breathe. Look around.
Not locking while living and performing is just that. Not locking. Just as when you’re not holding your breath, your breath is not being held and is therefore free to come and go.
There’s nothing to “do”. It’s about undoing.
Don’t try to unlock yourself. Just unlock yourself and keep not locking as you live, perform, and move.
By unlocking yourself you are automatically creating space in your whole system to grow into a quality with more flow.
Practice finding a rhythm in these kinds of choices. And keep it free, light, and simple people.
