Did you know that we are born with three brains?
In my many years of teaching children and families to stay open to the connection between mind and heart , I knew there was always more to experience within our Body's Inner Universe. But it wasn't until Oct 2019 that I fully embarked into this deeper exploration of the three brains and how we can practically use this knowledge in our daily life (teaching, living , embodying a sense of harmony within). I first began to apply myself to what I had discovered in my Tepp Facilitator training with Philip Sheperd (author of "Radical Wholeness" & "New Self, New World" books). One basic tool of practicing this embodiment was to BE AWARE of how we simply tend to stay focused within our first brain (most of the time) due to our cultural conditioning, and how sometimes we do enjoy travelling between first brain anf third brain in the heart as we practice yoga and meditation...and lastly, how we miss "that something else" we had not been taught to trust as children growing up (our primal connection to our pelvic brain, our gateway to wholeness). Here are a few notes to help you in your own path of Inner DISCOVERY of these three brains and their constant flow of action in your daily life.
is the brain in the head (this is where we consciously think. It is by nature exclusive and it excels at analysis, abstraction, known relationship, control, and systemization.)
is the pelvic brain in the belly (this is where we can consciously be. It is by nature inclusive and
it excels at integration, felt relationship, harmony and Deep Presence).
is the brain in the heart (this is where our wholeness meets the world's wholeness.)
All three brains are complementary and designed to work together. Unlike most cultures, our western culture has been committed to the strengths of the 1st brain (the one in the head) which has thrown our culture off balance, reinforcing the sense of isolation (a divided state) and making people incapable of moving into wholeness (which is their divine birthright).
WHAT limits our sensitivity to wholeness is always found in the body.
I am sharing an embodiment exercise below that can help you sustain an easy daily practice for experiencing a DEEP Sense of Stillness (as it moves the mental energy down to the pelvic floor and activates the 2nd brain every time we can do this). Enjoy and repeat and be amazed at the Super intelligence that rises from the belly into the now moment.
