Make no mistake, we are CONSTANTLY in relationship with our environment. What is happening out there (In the environment) is happening in here (In our inner environment). However, that lands for you and whatever language you have used to this point, I assure you it’s true.
Water moves in certain ways; it reveals different aspects of us to ourselves. For example, the deeper you dive into water, the darker and more mysterious it gets, therefore the SCARIER it can get, the more fear inducing it becomes. Water shows up how our fear holds us back from our truest potential. From really becoming the person we were meant to become.
Fear shows up in the body in particular ways and in particular areas. This is where Chinese philosophy comes in. Through spacious inquiry we can learn how what we are feeling (And even not feeling!) in our body, is our guide to what is out of balance.
