The Motor Homunculus
.
... take a look at the neuroscience behind the way the brain “sees” the body. (This image) illustrates the “motor homunculus.” This is a visual map of the proportionate representation of the body in the brain. It is derived from the work of Dr. Wilder Penfield, a renowned Canadian neurosurgeon. He developed this map by stimulating regions of the brain in epileptic patients during surgery and then documented what parts of the body were affected. Dr. Penfield’s work was a pioneering contribution to medical science. It was original, elegant in its simplicity, and has stood the test of time.
.
Regions of the body requiring greater tactile skills and sensory awareness, such as the hands and tongue, have a correspondingly larger representation on the homunculus. Areas that are responsible for less complex activities are smaller on the map. Look at the psoas muscle, for example. Its representation is far smaller than that of the tip of the little finger!
.
What does all of this have to do with yoga? Well, it has been shown that the brain exhibits a quality known as “plasticity.” This refers to the body's ability to alter the physical structure and circuitry within the brain through specific types of training. Practicing yoga can be a method for accessing this malleability within the brain. For example, The Psoas Awakening Series can be used to expand the circuitry associated with this muscle.

For mental health awareness month, here are the key Happiness chemicals to known and celebrate 🎭✨ Oftentimes we think we’re “sad”, “angry”, “unhappy”, “unfulfilled”, etc and oftentimes it can be as simple as facilitating the body’s chemical expression. It doesn’t necessarily require a while lot of deep shadow work (although that’s ULTRA necessary too), sometimes it’s as simple as a treating a deficiency in the body and mind. I find this liberating as for many years I’ve seen people dive deep and do soul work, without able to break through or get “somewhere” with it. And after years of exploration, I’ve seen time after time, that it was a deficiency flying under the radar that was over-ruling the hormonal expression.

This is why we’re adamant on herbal mood boosters at our apothecary, as they can greatly facilitate this elevated mood + hormonal expression for most of us.

Some herbal classics that are excellent for our happiness receptors:
- Mucuna
- Cacao
- Damiana
- St. John’s wort
- Catuaba
- Horny Goat 🐐 Weed
- Albizzia
- Lemon Balm
- Ashwagandha
- Rhodiola (and all Adaptogens!)
- Rose 🌹
- CBD
- and so many more!!

And of course:
- Movement
- Laughing
- Self love
- Hugs
are vital to our happiness too.

*Please don’t self diagnose if you’re I taking anti-depressants, or have a medical condition. Always ask your holistic health care practitioner or Dr. before🙏🏽

When Einstein gave lectures at U.S. universities, the recurring question that students asked him most was:
- Do you believe in God?
And he always answered:
- I believe in the God of Spinoza.

Baruch de Spinoza was a Dutch philosopher considered one of the great rationalists of 17th century philosophy, along with Descartes.

(Spinoza) : God would say:

Stop praying.
What I want you to do is go out into the world and enjoy your life. I want you to sing, have fun and enjoy everything I've made for you.

Stop going into those dark, cold temples that you built yourself and saying they are my house. My house is in the mountains, in the woods, rivers, lakes, beaches. That's where I live and there I express my love for you.

Stop blaming me for your miserable life; I never told you there was anything wrong with you or that you were a sinner, or that your sexuality was a bad thing. Sex is a gift I have given you and with which you can express your love, your ecstasy, your joy. So don't blame me for everything they made you believe.

Stop reading alleged sacred scriptures that have nothing to do with me. If you can't read me in a sunrise, in a landscape, in the look of your friends, in your son's eyes... ➤ you will find me in no book!
Stop asking me "will you tell me how to do my job?" Stop being so scared of me. I do not judge you or criticize you, nor get angry, or bothered. I am pure love.

Stop asking for forgiveness, there's nothing to forgive. If I made you... I filled you with passions, limitations, pleasures, feelings, needs, inconsistencies... free will. How can I blame you if you respond to something I put in you? How can I punish you for being the way you are, if I'm the one who made you? Do you think I could create a place to burn all my children who behave badly for the rest of eternity? What kind of god would do that?

Respect your peers and don't do what you don't want for yourself. All I ask is that you pay attention in your life, that alertness is your guide.

My beloved, this life is not a test, not a step on the way, not a rehearsal, nor a prelude to paradise. This life is the only thing here and now and it is all you need.

I have set you absolutely free, no prizes or punishments, no sins or virtues, no one carries a marker, no one keeps a record.
You are absolutely free to create in your life. Heaven or hell.

➤ I can't tell you if there's anything after this life but I can give you a tip. Live as if there is not. As if this is your only chance to enjoy, to love, to exist.

So, if there's nothing after, then you will have enjoyed the opportunity I gave you. And if there is, rest assured that I won't ask if you behaved right or wrong, I'll ask. Did you like it? Did you have fun? What did you enjoy the most? What did you learn?...

Stop believing in me; believing is assuming, guessing, imagining. I don't want you to believe in me, I want you to believe in you. I want you to feel me in you when you kiss your beloved, when you tuck in your little girl, when you caress your dog, when you bathe in the sea.

Stop praising me, what kind of egomaniac God do you think I am?

I'm bored being praised. I'm tired of being thanked. Feeling grateful? Prove it by taking care of yourself, your health, your relationships, the world. Express your joy! That's the way to praise me.

Stop complicating things and repeating as a parakeet what you've been taught about me.

What do you need more miracles for? So many explanations?

The only thing for sure is that you are here, that you are alive, that this world is full of wonders.

- Spinoza
