Article by Carolina Rodriguez Barros, www.daretoglow.com

In the last article we spoke about the 3 key elements that define your degree of presence in everything you do, therefore define your performance and impact as a professional:


✓high levels of energy
✓a daily dose of creativity
✓awareness and flexibility

Let’s speak about energy today.

In our practice, Body and Energy are the foundation on which you build up your presence.

Body and Energy awareness are blended in this simple exercise to help you feel empowered throughout your day. The objective is to connect your inner fire with the fire of the Earth - and all women in the planet.

 

  • Sit comfortably on a mat or blanket on the floor. Either with your knees bent or stretched in front of you.
  • Place the palm of your right hand below your right isquion bone, the small bone in the base of your pelvis. You should feel it on your palm. The bone on which the body rests when sitting - so it is very important that you become aware of it.
  • Once you have it, close your eyes and adjust your posture. You will be seated for a while. Make yourself comfortable and bring your breathing to your belly. Take a deep breath.
  • Keep your eyes closed while visualising a line inside your body that starts on the isquion, going down through your flesh, your skin, your clothes, your skin again, your hand, the mat or blanket, the floor, the space until the basement of the building, and enters the Earth. The line keeps going down through the Earth, its is dark and cold now, and the lines continues to go down. Until it becomes dryer and warmer. Until there is a big glowing flame. The line sumerges and take the energy from this flame, and comes all the way up.
  • Visualise the way up with the reversed description.
  • Come back to your isquion. Stay with your palm there.
  • Take a deep breath and remove your palm, bring it to your right knee. Stay with your eyes closed and feel your body now.
  • How do you feel? Is there any difference between the right and left side of your body?
  • Repeat the same sequence with the left side, starting by finding your left isquion with your left palm .
  • Once you’ve done both right and left, stay a moment breathing and feeling this connection with the center of the Earth. Now you are connected with your inner fire.
  • Practice this exercise in the morning to start your day centred and grounded in your energy.


TIPS: you can also practice this while in the office, right there where you are seated!
