I'm one hundred percent spirit led. It means following signs, connecting dots, and happenings. In a way that most times, most signs, get brushed aside, or toppled over. My eyes and ears are wide open paying attention and listening further for queues. There are a couple of things that have come to the forefront of this six-month training journey. One is the first three months are definitely dedicated to the mind-body coordination/connection.
Not so much foot to trail, endurance, reps, or anything that has to do with endurance strength training for the climb yet. No, this is about my brain finally meeting my body, some sort of internal dance that has never run the way it is about to. Using something Camille says are Z Drills. All new to me. They focus on toes, ankles, tops of feet, sides of feet, hips, pelvic bones, and knees. Right now we are working from the waist down. Getting the pelvic bone into a neutral position is not a natural thing for me, or most women I am told. When done properly, for the first time, it feels strange. Holding my body in ways that I probably should have learned a long time ago. Ha! Yet here we are, and truly believe we grow as we know then can, so everything happens in its perfect timing. This is the IN Journey at Internal Journeys. Will add that learning how to place my pelvic bones in a neutral position in just two sessions has changed a lot of my core strength already, relieving pressure on my neck, and lifting my shoulders and chin up higher. I am naturally finding myself moving to this planted neutral position whenever I stop moving. I feel more sure of my body, its beauty and strength, and an awareness to connect more readily. This is a really exciting part of the journey! Part I of II training. ~ Had to say/share it out loud that this totally rocks! And so do you @camilleisjoy
