Tuning the Helix

Today my body is bursting to reconnect. Imbalances pop up everywhere, Hips twist. Right leg needs to lengthen. T6 between the shoulder blades is out somehow. All these complaints sends signals of pain to my right knee.

First I acknowledge each area of need to just say help is on the way. Slow and small movement is best like a very detailed barre or a Tai Chi and Chi Gong movement.

For slow focused movements, I send a shower of many signals from all directions. Then I direct the shower from the spine. I shift the signals first to the scattered shower then to the directed shower. This brings the area to life and ready to reconnect.

Today I introduce some slow counter rotations of head with hips in one direction and shoulder girdle and solar plexis to the opposite direction. All this is very subtle movement in slow motion. I can enlarge one area at a time, a hip rotating forward or back in a semi circle. The back under the shoulders can swivel in the same or the opposite direction of the hips.

All of this is to bring life to each area and to clarify the signals that can be shifted through body brain connections.

Then I am ready to apply imagery to reconnect my signal networks. The difference between the imagery of a DNA shaped helix and spiraled signals is coming a little clearer.

The helix image is a structure that I can place within different areas of my body. First I place a helix spiraling from both feet up through my spine and out my head. I experience the slight spiraling of the entire helix image structure. The image can spiral in either direction, can ripple with areas that are trying to align, and become larger or smaller in areas that need more detailed focus.

A single signal can travel instantly through the entire helix and return. For example a contraction in the arch of the feet can send a clear signal out the top of the head. This is my first signal just to test where the disconnects are.

The signal follows the spiraled pathway of the helix and can reshape the position and size of the helix to fit its trajectory. To deal with the imbalance in my legs, I alter the helix to be a loop from one foot through the pelvic diaphragm to the other foot. I am then balanced on a series of spiraling springs, the helix, that can simultaneously apply equal pressure or apply a lifting pressure to one leg while moving the opposite leg.

The same applies to the area between the shoulder blades. I apply one helix from finger tips of one hand through my body to finger tips of the other hand. This helix image engages the area under my arms, connects with the T6 area of the spine and engages the solar plexis at the front of my body.

I move each area in all directions by sending clear signals through the helix image. Because I am imaging the helix as a moveable structure, I do not need to construct the signal as a spiral. The signal travels instantly through the helix. The spiral of the signal through the helix can reflect in my movement if I wish.
The next stage is reconnecting the support areas of the horizontal diaphragms. I have already connected the arches of the feet to the entire body. I continue the connections through my body with the Barre, Floor-BarreTM and variations of Modern Dance sequences.

Reconnecting the pelvic diaphragm is placing a horizontal helix within the pelvis and hip areas. I can send lifting signals through the helix and also signals for expanding and contracting that activate the lower spine and legs.

From the pelvic diaphragm I can enlarge the helix and send signals crossing the spine to activate which vertebra that need my attention.

I can repeat the counter rotations that I used to test my problem areas earlier.

Each diaphragm is important. The one that is calling for help this morning is the Cranial Base where the top vertebra Atlas can swivel and bob the head in all directions. I can send signals from the arches of the feet or from the pelvic diaphragm.

A signal can ripple through the helix to bob or rotate the head in any direction. The ease of motion is so much simpler than the command, “Now move the head.” The movement is connected into a full body network and the sensation is of movement growing from inside out.

So I have spent most of my time notating these steps today. Now I need to spend some focused time with my moving self.
