Through the years I’ve written essays about musicians and athletes who’ve come to me in bodily hassle. I’ve written about their first classes, the place I present them find out how to do what they’re doing otherwise and one thing clicks so profoundly, that they do their sport amazingly, or they play their instrument amazingly, they usually STOP coming.
I’ve written prior to now that I feel that when a mean athlete or common performing musician experiences their potential for greatness, “they might go operating out of the lesson screaming”. It threatens their self picture a lot, they should stop. (I had this occur with a really fantastic cellist just lately.)
I’ve checked out what I imagine occurs psychologically in essays, and concluded that possibly in these instances it was a matter of self-worth. The athlete’s or musician’s self picture wasn’t self-loving sufficient for them to just accept how good they might turn out to be, and to pursue and full their journey to nice golf or nice trumpet taking part in.
I wish to take a distinct tact on this essay.
WHAT IF THE ATHLETE OR MUSICIAN IN PHYSICAL TROUBLE HAS BEEN FRANTICALLY LOOKING FOR A SOLUTION TO THEIR TECHNIQUE AND POSTURAL PROBLEMS CRIPPLING THEIR ABILITY TO MAKE GREAT MUSIC OR DO A SPORT EXEPTIONALLY WELL FOR SO LONG, THAT THEY CAN’T SEE THAT THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE TEACHER IS OFFERING THEM A SOLUTION?
What if she or he can’t frantically cease searching for legitimate assist lengthy sufficient to see that they’ve discovered it?
Probably the most highly effective psychological issues that units an individual up for trying however by no means letting them discover what their searching for, whether or not it’s a loving mum or dad, or a sensible approach in a sport or on an instrument, is that the individual will get caught searching for salvation, doesn’t know they’re searching for salvation, and when it’s proper earlier than they’re eyes, can’t see or settle for it.
THE ATHLETE OR MUSICIAN IS THUS STUCK IN A PERMANENT STATE OF LOOKING UNCONSCIOUSLY FOR WHAT THEY WANT MOST, AND WHEN IT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM, THEY WON’T ACCEPT IT AND USE IT TO HEAL PHYSICALLY OR PSYCHOLOGICALLY.
This implies they will’t let the psychologist, or Alexander Method, or God, or themselves give them what they need most, BECAUSE THEY’RE SO FRANTICALLY LOOKING FOR IT, THAT THEY CAN’T SEE IT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM!
AND, THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW THEY’RE TRAPPED LOOKING FOR WHAT THEY CAN NEVER ALLOW THEMSELVES TO HAVE.
What’s the loving therapeutic answer to this downside?
Nevertheless an individual goes about it, by journaling, pondering it by, the assistance of an Alexander Method Instructor, a psychologist, a religious aha expertise, or all the above, they should convey to consciousness that they’ve been on a journey searching for what they need most and haven’t allowed themselves to have!
It’s extraordinary how others can see what’s driving us to do what we do, however we’re completely BLIND to what’s operating our lives.
It’s on this SEEING what we would like most, that can permit us to cease and settle for that we’ve got lastly discovered it, embrace it, use it, combine it, and let it heal us.
I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING WORSE THAN NOT LETTING OURSELVES HAVE WHAT WE WANT THE MOST, WHEN IT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF US.
