Lateral fluctuations are in the fluid body and can express a lesion in the fluids, or the potential for the system to be creating a treatment manifestation. We know that the fluid body is in reality one organism connected by billions of cells and there are different rates of fluctuations that can be happening simultaneously. The fluid field is a breathing organism that is responding to forces from outside of itself. It is primary respiration and it is intelligent. These fluctuations occur often times in the mid-tide. It is perceived as a transverse wave or motion. But, there is also a vertical movement because the field is literally a 3 dimensional liquid crystalline matrix. [Read more…]
This is maybe the most important practice I will share. It reflects back to the original technique I taught in the cranial sacral foundational work. It’s the Practitioner Fulcrum, but we are going to add a second name that has been used in Eastern medicine and arts, the Central Channel. The gateway to the Primordial Field. It is in every tradition of meditation in the East. OK, maybe not every one, but it’s an ancient practice.
We have arrived now to this practice on the foundation that has been built by our previous practices. I know there can be the impulse to jump right into this. Unless you have had some previous training in other disciplines, you are making a mistake. Some people can jam successfully on the guitar without knowing any scales, but if one has practiced the scales of their musical instrument it gives you them lot more flexibility, and I dare say more acumen. Enough said.
This is the last technique, and maybe the most important and powerful. You can anchor this strongly into the ground when you feel it clearly and merge with your client’s midline, creating a very safe relational field for the work to unfold in. [Read more…]
I was told once that doing bodywork is not the same as meditation. I disagree. I think we are walking on this path of realization by dropping any notions of a differentiation between our spiritual lives and our “normal” life journey. To me they are one and the same. The more attention we can bring to our everyday lives, the more powerful the transformation of reality. The more we can open, the more sensitive we become to our environment. We begin to truly realize the total connection to everything. There are many forms to experience the depths of Stillness that lie within us. And to me they are the “keys to the kingdom”. My belief after 30 years of practice is that the deeper the state we can achieve, the more profound our ability to sense the underlying patterns that are causing imbalances, both physically and emotionally, in our patients’ systems. Or in plain speak, the reason they are lying on our tables. Let’s explore the next step in creating a template to use as your portal. [Read more…]
Now that you have practiced releasing your own tension into the Earth everyday for a week or two, you are now ready to put this first new skillset into a practical form to catapult you to the next level in your ability to help others. The whole concept will be to do two things at once, like right and and left hand in playing a musical instrument. This technique can be applied to any modality you practice. If you haven’t practiced the first technique, I encourage you to do that now and then come back to this. Foundational teachings are very important and without a solid foundation there is a tendency for everything to crumble. In the case of practitioners of bodywork disciplines and massage, you will really being doing yourself a great disservice. There is no timeline with this teaching and no schedules or exams. If you practice the methodology I am teaching, you will see how wonderfully this begins to impact your ability to help your clients. I promise! No pressure! Buddha said that it didn’t matter if you fell off the path a thousand times as long as you got back on it a thousand times. Be Nike about this!
We are about to embark on an odyssey. Can’t really call it Homer’s or Judah’s because it’s steeped in all the Eastern mystery schools and is still practiced today!
If all it took to be a successful bodyworker was learning the original technique, everyone would be great. To improve you have to tweak your listening machines and in the ensuing posts I hope to elevate your skill set to an obvious new height. Not with new bodywork techniques, but by installing some new software into your lives.
If you have bought the cranial approach we offer, then you know about the practitioner fulcrum from which all the work springs forth. But, in those teachings we didn’t go too deeply into the concept because it would be inappropriate to inundate you with the deepening of the work unless you had done the footwork up to this point. One has to understand in their core how little control we have over our mental facilities. Anyone who does bodywork, or is attentive to their minds, is painfully aware of this fact. So, it’s my opinion that in order to elevate our capacities as healers, or whatever term you use, we have to ramp up the ability to rein in our wandering minds. Otherwise we are constantly disconnecting from our client’s field. [Read more…]
