So it is day 6 and I am determined to unlock this right shoulder
I want to stretch, lift and complete quick movements without pain.
Knowing you are guarding the injury site and uncovering why you are doing it can begin to soften the neuro-emotional objections you have developed to releasing the old trauma at the site of injury.
The two ways that are helping tonight are visualization and singing.
To protect my tightened muscles and tendons in my shoulders, I began rounding the shoulders.
*Reset your posture:
Take a deep belly breath. Then squeeze and release the shoulder blades while tightening the belly. Then relax the shoulders -keep your chin straight and release your breath through your nose.
Knowing that reaction pattern was set in place and then continually repeated every time I bumped, slipped or sat over a computer.
*Angel in the snow
*Lay down on your back with your head and spine resting on a rolled rug on the floor (or on your bed if floor is too challenging)
*Practice creating snowmen
**Begin with arms at your sides and move them comfortably and slowly (on your breath) upward until you begin to feel your muscles start to resist. Return to stating position and repeat. Feels freeing and reminds me of playing in the snow as a kid.
Results I could extend my arms upward easier now and I realized that there was a strong emotion coming to the surface. I finally realized I was breaking free !
