The Twisted Fairy Says!

Get Up

Stand up or raise up.
Drop down and relax. That’s all. Your spine and body love it!

The Twisted Fairy says,

“Take a deep breath, let it out with a sigh!”

No really! Exhale audibly. When we sigh out loud we

  • vibrate and massage organs
  • take your emotional temperature
  • let off steam or exform as we say in InterPlay

The Twisted Fairy says, “Shake!”

Shake out a leg.
Shake out the other leg.
Shake out whatever you’re sittin’ on!
Stand up and shake it all out!

You don’t have to go to Africa, Bali or China to use the wisdom of the body! Right here, right now “let go of the stresses of the day and revive like those who use the, effective Qigong technique.

It relaxes and warms all of the muscles, organs, joints and fascia of the body and even the multitudes of  cells of your body. Whole-body shaking is an excellent way to exercise and detoxify every cell of the body. Besides being an effective warm-up, Shaking the Body can make bone marrow strong, strengthen the spine, and support the kidneys and adrenal glands. In fact, every organ and tube in the body is enhanced by Shaking the Body. Lymph flow is enhanced so that more gunk is cleared out and your immune function improved. Blood flow increases and hormonal secretions will benefit your skin. Bouncing up and down like this also adjusts the magnetic field, organizing and balancing it. Shaking can strengthen cells through the quick, extra force each shake places on the cells. It adds a sudden dollop of extra-gravitational force, creating a need for all of the cells to buck up. It can help sagging tissues regain or hold their tonicity.”At the American Institute for Cancer Research annual conference, Canadian researchers reported that sedentary behavior was associated with about 100,000 cases of breast and colon cancer annually. Theory: Being sedentary promotes inflammation, a cancer risk factor. If you sit a lot, be sure to get up and move around for a minute or two every hour.”

Bradford Keeney, recovering scholar and psychotherapist teaches that shaking IS health! He calls it Shaking Medicine.

The Twisted Fairy says, “Twist!”

Twisting hasn’t quite made it into modern health wisdom, but when we twist we

  • create space for my body
  • rebalance right and left
  • reincorporate the playful swing of things (It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing!)
  • relax the thrusty focus and energy
  • restore the sense of having a 3D body!

Put it together! Call it singing and dancing!

(I couldn’t find youtubes of bodies meditatively twisting from side to side. Can you? Make or send me one and I’ll create a virtual friday interplay in honor of a theme or person your choice!)

Thanks for playing! Raise a hand to movers and shakers everywhere! Start a revolution with heart! Find magic again in moving, breathing, singing, and sharing. InterPlay.org
