This quote really hit home for me from this weeks episode with Jonny Miller, founder of Nervous System Mastery and the Curious Humans Podcast and blog.
The nervous system seems to be intimately related to energy in our bodies. As electrical beings, this shouldn’t come as a massive surprise. I wanted to learn more about this which is why I was very excited to have Jonny who is a nervous system expert on the show.
I’ve learned many hard lessons on overtaxing my nervous system due to my spiritual ambition which has resulted in lots of discomfort over the years. In many instances, this was due to engaging in practices I thought were supposed to help aid my transformation like breathwork and other somatic release techniques. 🧐
What I see now and discuss with Jonny, was how I was missing a the imperative long integration and re-patterning period after big releases. I also generally overdid it. Shocker.
There also proves to be an immense amount of nuance in truly relaxing into a sensation vs. trying to focus on it and push it out. Learning this is practically a whole skill in itself. Again, this took me years of doing it wrong and enduring subsequent physical difficulties to truly understand.
If you are doing any somatic work, this is a must listen episode. The depth of understanding that Jonny has is truly amazing and the language he uses to communicate complex concepts is wonderful. Did I mention he has a charming British accent?!
