The unwinding has been crazy lately though the good news has been I could feel the final core of the core starting to release. Thanks to a recent change in circumstances I was able to book an appointment with Hanna for yesterday afternoon. And what an appointment it was!
I went feeling hopeful we could get another piece loosened maybe, given the degree of opening in progress. As she worked on the rest of my body I noticed lots of places that had been stuck before seemed to release pretty easily. When I commented, she said nothing seemed stuck and I’m a good example of what you can do with lots of bodywork and yoga, etc. I’d have left pretty happy there!
But then she spent the last portion of our time on my head. Things were opening in my jaw like never before and then the muscles around my eyes started releasing. I lay there wondering if she’d think we’d made a bit of progress.
At the end she told me she felt the final locked up piece released. She described a sense of something like a metal pole shoved down into my head and that it released entirely. Very interesting, as five years ago at a cranio-sacral appointment Robyn “saw” the ancestral witch driving a spike down through the chakras as part of her determined effort to stop the “sight” for all future women in the line.
The lower level impacts of the spike released long ago and Robyn thought we’d gotten my head, but I’ve been contending with a lingering piece ever since. And now it’s gone!
Release of the pattern doesn’t instantly release every knot in the muscles, but they’re opening at quite a pace. My usual experience has been it takes a few days to a week for muscles to complete all the opening possible from such a release. As the unwinding continues, the cool thing is there is no longer a big pull back every time a knot tries to open, which I sense as the absence of the big locked piece.
A few places with muscle issues remain in my body; unclear whether the releases in my head will finish these. And of course life is constantly putting kinks in muscles so some degree of body work and practicing my Flowing Body work will be life-long.
I’m elated, dazed, disbelieving… finding it hard to imagine what life looks like without being centered around this long ordeal with my muscles. But hey, blocks in head are gone!!! Woo Hoo!
