We live in a hyper-connected world, but more people are more disconnected than ever before. Why? It’s easier than ever to get out of sync with the natural rhythms of our energy and spend the majority of life in a fight-or-flight state. It’s partly because of technology and screen time and because of a lack of integrated movement throughout the day. It’s largely because people just don’t know how to connect and find flow—that optimal state of being where we are one with our body and the universe and where we feel and perform at our very best.
Today on The Broken Brain Podcast, I’m joined by my good friend Dr. John Amaral to talk about how disconnection from our inner world is caused by internalization, and how many of us don’t communicate our true feelings with the people we interact with in our day-to-day lives, often for fear of what they might think of us. We discuss how physical pain can be related to emotional stagnation, and how we can release stored stress, pain, and trauma from our body. We also talk about how to make a true connection with ourselves through the natural rhythms of our body and energy.
