As we learn to tap into the interior of our body and inhabit it, we can sense a subtle current of aliveness that runs vertically through the core. It feels like a clear, luminous line of energy that runs upward close to the spine. It seems to well up from the ground like a pure spring and feels as if it radiates high above our head. If you imagine that your body is suspended in midair by a fine line located at the top of your head, you may get a sense of it.
I call it the current of life because it contains an essential aliveness and intelligence. The fewer filters we have – limiting beliefs, emotional reactions, and somatic contractions- the easier it is to sense this core animating luminosity.
