Thank you for all the material you sent. They complement the modules very nicely. For me, the module was exactly what I was looking for right now. The tensions in the body subside and with them some pains, for example in the lower back when lying on the back with my legs stretched, pains behind the right shoulder blade and above the left hip, which remained as a result “faceplanting” on the asphalt a few years ago. Makes your head clearer. The pace and rhythm of the exercises were just right for my body, enough newness and repetition that after a month the body got used to it. As you repeatedly told us, this is a never-ending story, with each repetition something else happens and you feel change, sometimes tension or relaxation that couldn’t be felt a few days before. My subconscious mind is very happy with the exercises, a little less so with the breathing modules, but I negotiate with it kindly so it doesn’t resist too much – at least for now. Breathing pauses currently vary between 8 and 14 seconds, depending on the day, the exercises I’ve done before and my mood. Otherwise, I feel maybe some kind of fear for them, maybe the closest description at the moment is the feeling you have before giving up. Sometimes I imagine that I am lying at the bottom in shallow water and I am looking up through the waterbed towards the sun, the sea is rocking me slightly. I am curiously watching the movement of the water above me and I feel completely calm and safe. This allows me to extend the pause up to 20 seconds.
Bodily fatigue gradually appeared, so that I took plenty of time to rest, and increasingly feel the movement of energy under my skin, especially in my legs and chest, which is very nice. And it’s wonderful for me to work with my body from the inside out, as you say, rather than putting extra strain on already stressed muscles.
Although I was a little hesitant before signing up because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to make a one-month commitment twice a day. However, the month flew by and there was absolutely no resistance after a while, and I also adapted the rest of my life to this rhythm.
I am satisfied that I did the breathing module first and now I continue with the upper part of the body, because I already learned and realized a lot from the first module. Besides, I think breathing is more foundational and it now supports me in this module as well.
As far as actions and expressions of emotions are concerned, this supports me in what I have already set out to do, and I notice that I communicate what I would like with less restraint and more calmly and clearly. But this is also about long-distance running, and as long as I see progress in the desired direction compared to how I felt and the conditions six months ago, I’m satisfied.
