Little did I foresee that in 2020 the collective would be forced to go within -- quite literally - with three billion or about half the world's population now in lock-down. It's a misdemeanor to congregate. We get yelled at in grocery stores if we aren't social distancing enough. It's radical to ask questions, or walk in the park.
Crisis also means opportunity in some languages, and this is an opportunity to deepen our connection between our body's intelligence and our mind. Our mind is not in control. It's a chance to deepen our connection to spirit - miracles can happen once we let go of the mind's urge to control.
Each of us are evolving in this time. Our species is evolving and so is its societal structures. We won't be the same people individually or collectively once this is over. You can move within to become aware of the changes and consciously work with them and with others - compassion means to suffer together - or you can succumb to fear, panic and hostility towards others as you try to control the outcome.
Here is a short moving meditation that flows a little quicker than some of my other videos. You can continue the pattern long after the video ends: downward triangle (or dog), stepping through and raising arms up slowly before going into scales (or airplane). Keep the legs buoyant and knees bent as you reach up, as it will test your balance!
You can spend longer in the poses than I do here to experience the body and feelings. I recommend checking out my other videos as well to build up observation powers of the body.
