How is the weekend going. If it is all work and no play, or if you’re feeling creatively stagnant, this post is for you!
OK so it’s supposed to be for kids. No kids, no problem because we all have a little kid within. Usually this part of us goes neglected. The ratio is the more your true needs were neglected as a kid, the more you tend to neglect your own inner little kid’s needs now.

My theory is that the ailments that end up as pain in the necks, shoulders and arms (carpal tunnel, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, bursitis, etc) are in part our inner kid’s metaphorically tugging at our sleeves, saying, Let’s play!
So the next time you notice pain tugging at your sleeve you might try gently shaking them out and wiggling your fingers…then turn on some music that makes you feel good and want to move and let your body, not your mind, lead! Allow your arms and legs to make spontaneous even foolish looking movements.
Then take turns letting other parts of your body lead..
your head, your head, your hara- the region of the solar plexus or abdomen, believed to be the spiritual center of the soul and the body’s life-processes.
What does it feel like to move from these parts of yourself. Which feels best or most needed at this time?
Save the last dance for your arms and hands let them clap and snap and twirl to your heart’s content.
See you next week! Engagingly yours,
