Body Movement

Body Movement

Really? *smirk*
Rough translation Wendi-style — I’ve been spending entirely too much time on my ass playing SIMS2. *LOL*
Seriously, though, when I’m doing readings for others and they draw this card, I explain to them that too much down time can lead to depression, to “Monkey Mind” thinking.  By staying still too long, you’re slowing your motabalism, and lethargic body can lead to lethargic mind.  Start an exercise program, join a Yoga class, take daily walks, or dance in your living room — anything physical that will lead to an increase in adrenaline and “jump start” the body’s energy. Even sex is an excellent form of body movement!
It’s odd because I was just saying to my daughter that I haven’t had any days at all lately where I can just be at home.  I’m always on the go.  Even when I was out of work for a week due to injury, I left the house every day – the first day for drug testing, then back to school night, grocery store errands, trips to the bank.  I’m always going somewhere and I crave the down time.  Yet, busy does not necessarily mean “active”, I’m just realizing.  Because I work on my feet at a steady pace, I find that when I do run errands, I often send the kids in while I wait in the Jeep.  I’m not up, I’m not moving, I’m not getting the adrenaline pumping. Aside from when I am at work, I am still — and apparently, that’s a problem.  Being more active may have prevented me from getting sick!
Here’s what the guidebook says:
Card Meaning: “Your body wants to express itself through movement. Listen to your body, and it will tell you what type of movement it craves.” (Uh, yeah, I’ve got that one figured out, thanks!)
Description: Your physical body has its own life force and intelligence, and it’s part of the same elemental kingdom as the fairies. It’s both childlike and demanding, as well as mature and insightful. This card indicates your body’s wisdom, and asks that you honor your body’s need for exercise and movement.
Spend a moment asking your body what type of movement it desires. Does it want cardiovascular conditioning such as jogging? A peaceful walk in nature? Stretching and meditative activities in a yoga class? Dancing to music? Listen to and follow through with your body’s answer.
Affirmation: I lovingly pay attention to my body’s needs.
