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.
