And how does this relate to my body? Well – home is also where the part is. Once again, there is no forced structure – no squeezing, lifting, tucking, pinching, bracing – necessary to be at home in this body. Where it wants to be right now – it knows that place. It is not a place of a flashy shape or pose. It is the place of ease and connection.
My parts know what they can and cannot do each day. If I honor their home in my movements for that day, they serve me and nourish me. If I fight home or try to force into a specific structure, shape of “rightness” or rigidity of “should be doing”, this body will exhaust on me and do so fast. My parts know they have unlimited potential. When I listen and move to their invitation, and not the range of what I THINK they should be doing, oh man, how I feel super powers of stamina coarse thorough me.
Then, we are an unstoppable team.
Home is where the part is. Go ahead… try it. Just as you are right now. Change nothing. Just breathe and repeat a few times:
Inhale: I have arrived.
Exhale: I am home.
