I did the trauma releasing exercises tonight. I forgot to do them last night. : ( Lots going on.
I tried a shortcut and did the first exercise, standing on the right edges of my feet, for 30 seconds on each side. I didn’t repeat that 5 times, and it didn’t seem to make much difference. My body is programmed to release now.
I noticed tonight that I had longer pauses between bouts of releasing than I’ve experienced before. I would come completely to a stop, not knowing if they would start again. Sometimes I’d be still for 10 or 15 seconds before they started again.
I had waves of leg shaking, not just quivering.
I did some mild rocking at the same time my legs were quivering. That’s different.
I had one bout of wild releasing from my left shoulder and arm.
After 20 minutes, I straightened my legs, and then they started shaking again! My left arm had one last bout of shaking.
Then I laid on the floor, feeling the energy buzz. It was definitely stronger where I’d been shaking the most.
I found a video by David Berceli about neurogenic tremors. This video is copyrighted 2005 and posted in 2007, before the book.
Berceli doesn’t talk about the tremors in relation to trauma, but about how they assist in relaxation, pain relief, physiological changes, increased agility, and increased mobility in the pelvic and lower back areas.
You can watch it here. What do you think? Kind of sexy?
