One of their recent posts was about the Godai, one of the very first concepts I was introduced to back in 2008 when I started my Amatsu journey. It's so easy to move on from the basics and get caught up in all the more exciting stuff as you learn an amazing therapy like Amatsu, but I really wanted to share this concept with you as these basics really are the building blocks of what we do.
Not only are these the building blocks of studying, the Godai happens to represent the foundation for a healthy life. It's only through having a strong base that you can grow and reach your higher potential. It's only when you come from a centre of strength that you feel able to explore, discover and dream better.
The physical is quite straightforward - are your muscles all working as they should? Is your spine aligned? Can your liver function optimally? This is the primary area of work for an Amatsu practitioner but your physical body gives all sorts of clues about the four other factors.
The chemical aspect refers to any drugs or supplements you may take, your alcohol consumption and also the food that you eat which will be broken down into your body's energy source. In an Amatsu session, there are certain assessments we can do to see how your digestive system might be coping with your diet and lifestyle as a whole. Are your intestines compromised? Is your gall bladder free to move? Is your pancreas happy with the amount of sugar you consume?
Emotional is quite obvious! Are you stressed? Anxious? Worried? Believe it or not, your body really does show the story of your emotions and a skilled Amatsu practitioner can learn a lot about your state of mind through the imbalances in your body. Scary hey? But also really useful!
The electrical factor refers to your nervous system and other energy fields within the body such as your chakra system and aura. Amatsu practitioners work less in this area, but we certainly have clients who come to us with trapped nerves that can be released through work at the physical level.
The environmental part of the Godai looks at factors such as your work, hobbies and other aspects of your life that may be affecting your health. These are quite broad ranging - does your job involve lots of driving that means you sit a lot? Is your favourite pastime running and how does that affect you physically and mentally? Do you live in a polluted environment? Do you feel loved and supported?
As you can see, there are so many factors that affect health and wellbeing and they all interconnect and interlink. Working with Amatsu allows me to take many of these factors into consideration when I work. It’s also important for my clients to recognise how different things may be affecting the way they feel. I make it my priority to ask lots of questions – for my own information, but also as a way to open my clients up to the possibilities that small changes that they make, could help to make a world of difference.
EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED!
Can't say it clearer than that!
