What do building a road and nervous system regulation have in common?

The key somatic practice that regulate your nervous system so you can expand

With clients lately, we been working cultivating internal safety through nervous system regulation.

Internal safety is, in my experience, the most critical part of our healing journey.

When we feel internally safe (not externally because lions, diseases, racism, etc) we judge, criticize, react, blame and shame less. Feeling safe is the foundation of lasting growth.

If you think about it, a lot of the problems personal development purports to solve, like confidence, love and success, stem from a lack of safety.

When we learn to regulate our nervous system it gives us a sense of internal safety we can can grow in ways that scare us. Our system is less burdened by threat so have better health. Our dreams are clearer because the survival voice of fear is quieter. The ways we played small dissolve and we take up space.

In other words, we expand our capacity for life.

Retraining our nervous systems to feel safe can be likened to building a road. Before any cars can drive on the new road the path has to be cleared, then many layers of road base go down, then the road roller, then more road base. Eventually, cars can drive on it.

What do building a road and nervous system regulation have in common?

Replace road with nervous system, the engineer with the coach and the road roller with healing sessions and you've got a neuroplasticity.

Is the human system not the most amazing thing?! 🤯

This has been my lived experience. When I shifted my somatic practice towards internal safety, things I desired in life became my lived reality. It didn't happen overnight, just like building a road it took time and many, many passes of the road roller...

If this sounds interesting, I invite you to build a road towards safety, reach out for a complementary connection call. I would LOVE to hear from you.
