Hmm. Have you ever been taught that our
Organs are knowable? (they're able to be sensed & effected)
C’eci n’est pas un poumon
(THIS IS NOT A LUNG!)
C’eci n’est pas un couer
(THIS IS NOT A HEART!)
C’eci n’est pas l’estomac
(THIS IS NOT A STOMACH!)
The above are helpful maps, useful information, evidence of the real thing
How often do you spend bringing your awareness to your actual organs?
ORGANS ARE JUICY:
They are mostly water.
They are moveable–depending on your positions & gestures they change shape & ‘hang out’ in slightly different areas.
Look at the top image of the water balloons.
Imagine their weight & jiggle-ability, imagine it warm. Sense internally.
ORGANS SLIDE AROUND EACH OTHER -- THINK OF THERE BEING 'JOINTS' BETWEEN THEM ALL
Our organs are surrounded by interstitial fluid, which is more viscous & oily than water. Imagine a bag full of water balloons, then fill it with oil. Move it around. It's kinda like that.
A.Just like joints, our organs have varied degrees of ‘movability’–called range of motion. It’s possible to increase or decrease the range of motion between our organs through touch and movement, as well as bringing our attention to these places Sense the space between your lungs & heart, your stomach & the tapered part of your liver. Movement is possible between all your organs.
B.Each of our organs also has a rhythm all it’s own, that is not dependent on body position, pace of breath or other rhythms like the heartbeat. This movement toward and away from the mid-line of your body is called motility. Each organ rotates on its own axis around eight times per minute, and this rotation can be literally perceived. Isn’t it strange that most of us don’t know that?
C.The more moveable, slippery & spacious our organs, the better our organs work. It’s cyclical, the more varied our movement the happier our organs; the happier our organs, the more varied our movements can be. ‘Movement’ can be subtle or gross, from the perception of our bronchi expanding to invite in a breath, to the ways a pregnant woman’s organs rearrange…
What is it like to embody our organs?
Our state-of-mind changes depending on where we focus internally
