My Alexander teacher talks about how everything is connected. The goal of these lessons is to affect the neuro-circuitry of my brain to guide me in the best use of my body. It took a long time for my body to learn these bad habits, and it is a real process to un-learn them and recall the intuitive ways in which I moved as a baby. By attending lessons regularly, and over a long period of time, the messages seep into my consciousness – moving from my short-term memory and into my long-term memory. I can affect the way I walk by using visual images of energy moving upward inside me. It starts with the intention of good use of my body and even some fun visualizations. Intentions can be very powerful. More about that later – in music, psychology, etc. For now, I am seeing many good things to come in 2009.
