Being Met

“from the moment of conception….

As ‘somatic sensory beings’ we are touched and impacted by our immediate surroundings both in the emotional and physical realms.

We retain our openness if our system’s needs are met – becoming stable and open, being able to flow easily between expansion and contraction.

If however, there is a conscious or unconscious rejection on the parent’s (caregiver’s part) at any juncture from the beginning of form, the system may need to shut down or withdraw in a ‘healthy’ survival response protecting its ‘self’ through contraction or flattening against the outside.

This becomes our life’s work to find our way back to receiving and embracing our life force and all the innate qualities of our essence.”
