When your mind is in your center, you will feel centered, grounded, confident, and assertive. Most predators will leave you alone because they will view you as a hard target. Even dogs will show you more respect when you move from your center. Also, with your mind in your center, you will quiet the normally loud mental chatter that otherwise prevents you from knowing instantly who is safe to be around and who isn’t.
In addition, with your mind in your center rather than in the mental chatter that we all commonly get lost in, you will more easily tune in to your bodily sensations that inform your intuition. As you quiet the mental chatter, you will better intuit when something or someone seems a little off. When we trust and honor our intuition, we can easily detect potential danger and avoid it, whether the threat is a family member, stranger or someone we know.
At the birth of civilization, humans began to lose their animal instincts. The practice of learning to pay attention to how you move can help you regain some of your animal nature and animal instincts. Humans are the only animals that lost their ability to move from their center of mass. As your ability to move from your center improves, you will experience increased aliveness in your life. Like other animals, you will be more aware of and in harmony with your environment.
