Many times people tell me that they feel that people see them not as they are, and that it is very frustrating. How can we be sure that we present ourselves as we really are?
When we think about how to present ourselves: what to say, what to do, and how to behave in our daily situations, we are wasting our energy, gaining lots of noise in our head, and producing symptoms that damage our body.
The way we think about ourselves impacts, in some way, our posture and behavioural patterns. For example: using banding around the shoulders to hide the chest will create lots of stress in the neck and will damage the upper back; to tense up the belly to look thinner will damage the digestive system and lower back, and holding the shoulders straight up to appear strong and confidant could cause a lack of sensation in the chest and poor breathing. To choose to keep quiet because of fear or a desire to avoid arguments, when we acutely want to express ourselves, will damage the throat and sometimes will even create a headache.
People find the Grinberg Method works for them as they learn how to pay better attention to their body, what it needs, and what they may be doing that could be producing the irritating symptoms that they are struggling with.
These people tend to get quite into it and want to develop and work on other things, like how it’s connected also to their self-image and how to change it.
This helps them to feel much closer and loyal to themselves and to have greater freedom and spontaneity during their daily lives.
