LEARNING THE AEQ METHOD® AS AN APPROACH TO PAIN RELIEF AND ELIMINATION

AEQ method, i.e., retraining the functioning of the mind through conscious muscle movement, we can learn. With the knowledge we gain, we can alleviate the pain caused by injuries to such emotional and physical ones, which trigger reflexes in us, resulting in (over) tense muscles. With the help of the AEQ method, we learn to regain control of our muscles and movements.

 

We have to change the way our brains work

  Permanent tensions in our muscles create pain, fatigue, joint, tissue inflammation, and nerve entrapment, while rigid muscles limit our flexibility, cause stiffness, and ruin our posture.

RESISTANCE

In a human being, any action that doesn’t offer instant satisfaction or, in other words, that encourages personal growth, health and wholeness and requires a certain effort, creates resistance.

  Any act that derives from our higher nature instead of our lower. Even walking uphill creates resistance in the human body and mind. We resist physically, intellectually and emotionally. And control over emotions is essential for a balanced life. We developed our emotions as we learned to move and use our mind. In adulthood, we must improve control over emotions along with better control over our movement. AEQ exercises promote success with improving control. Sensory motor amnesia is only one form of resisting our own progress and somatic movements reduce this amnesia. Often, people feel unexplainable resistance to do Somatics movements and look for reasons why they cannot help them.

LET’S REGAIN THE CHILD’S LIGHTNESS IN MOVEMENT

A world-famous emotional education specialist Debbie Ford writes in her bestseller Why Good People Do Bad Things: "The most powerful workshop I lead is a three-day retreat, which I called the Shadow process.

On the third day of the seminar, I brought a beautiful baby doll with an innocent face and beautiful pink cheeks; maybe you had the same one when you were a kid. I raise it above my head and ask everyone in the room to imagine her being a young, innocent version of themselves, which they are still carrying inside them. I then place this doll on a chair so that we can admire it for a moment. Then, without warning, I lift the baby, looked at it in anger, and say: Why did you do that? You stupid idiot! What is wrong with you? You shouldn't have said that!

YESTERDAY AND TODAY

Because time changes things and life, the changed '' me" must occasionally sync up with the past '' me." In the past, the only thing we had to deal with for our survival was the physical perspective of life. However, in today's world, much of our activity revolves around waiting and letting information come to us, rather than looking for it ourselves and making progress. We no longer have to move around our environment to communicate with the world, as modern technology allows the world to reach us.   This created a false feeling of self-consciousness and distorted proprioception. It caused a divide between our mind and body.

DROP THE HARMFUL ROUTINES

Along with the growth of self-awareness, self-control also increases - we improve control over our lives and make more realistic judgments of reality. We cut our selves into the real notions it has about itself and the environment. So, we can look at the world with new eyes and a sharper mind. If we get rid of thought behavior that most commonly derives from fear and incorrect responses, then we can free ourselves from the chronically harmful habits that constantly get us in trouble, make us tense or even ill. With that, we can also get rid of stagnated beliefs.  

How many times were we told what we are capable of?

THE DESIRE TO SOLVE A PROBLEM

If we wish to cure our condition, we have to become aware of the pattern hidden deep inside us.

We may begin to mention this pattern, complain about it, or recognize it in other people. Somehow it floats to the surface of our attention, and we begin to establish a relationship with it. We often attract a teacher, friend, workshop, or book that awakens in us new approaches to solving our problem.   We respond to the first stage by thinking that this approach is stupid and doesn’t make sense. We may find it too simple or unacceptable for our way of thinking, we don’t want to do it or resist all our might.

THE MEANING OF CHILDHOOD

We probably aren't even aware of what and how much we had to learn in our childhood before we could begin to operate in the information system that makes up our world.

For example, when we cross the right leg over the left, our brain does not replace the left leg with the right because the left leg is now on the same side as the right arm and right hip. We learned that in our childhood, with the help of kinesthetic-sensory memory (this is our natural ability of sensing impulses in our muscles and tendons during movement) and imagination.   As children, we have learned to distinguish what our body can do and where our body ends, and the world begins; we learned spatial orientation and the differences between left and right.

THE AFFECT OF CHRONIC PAIN ON OUR WELL-BEING

People have a universal response to pain: we tense up. This reaction appears everywhere, from babies to adults, even animals. The reaction is similar everywhere: we curl up to protect ourselves and avoid pain. This happens because our brains feel the pain, which causes muscle contraction. After all, the role of contracted muscles, among many others, is to protect the injured part of our body. We have all experienced this process, but we probably weren't aware that the brain controls it.

The consequences of ignoring the pain   When we feel chronic pain, we usually turn to chiropractors, masseuses, acupuncture, physiotherapy, even surgery. It is important to be aware that these health experts don't address the root of your problems; rather, they treat you to the best of their ability with generic methods that are not tailored to our specific problems. The cause and tension remain, while the pain comes back after a while.

THE BODY AND THE SIXTH SENSE

Most are only slowly moving into a new understanding of movement. So far, we've used exercise and sports to look better, be stronger, relax from everyday stress, or heal an injury. It is becoming increasingly clear that we can only achieve transient improvement in this way, and in the long run, we still or even more notice the impact of age on our psychophysical condition.

  An increasing number of people use movement and sports to learn and increase the sixth sense, proprioception.
