Today we are going to explore the physical letting go areas of the body. It is where people have the most pain that disables. The areas are Joints of the Jaw, Thumbs, and Hips. These are the areas where we are “see-saw d” one polarity or duality or another, not in balance. Usually, when we have pain in one or more of these areas we have been unbalanced for a long time on many levels: emotionally, mentally, physically, or energetically. Holding on, playing, and feeding one side or another and I sometimes see peoples shifting back and forth missing the balance points.
The hip joint is a synovial joint formed by the articulation of the rounded head of the femur and the cup-like acetabulum of the pelvis. It forms the primary connection between the bones of the lower limb and the axial skeleton of the trunk and pelvis.
The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are the two joints connecting the jawbone to the skull. It is a bilateral synovial articulation between the temporal bone of the skull above and the mandible below; it is from these bones that its name is derived.
The three joints of the thumb differ markedly with respect to anatomy and function. Each contributes its own anatomic personality, and when functioning together, they allow the thumb to move with remarkable versatility and grace yet with the stability necessary to perform a wide variety of tasks. The carpometacarpal and interphalangeal joints allow for thumb mobility while the metacarpophalangeal joint provides stability. Thumb rotation primarily takes place at the CMC joint, although the MP and IP joints each contribute a small amount of pronation with flexion.
[*]Make the decision to let it go. Things don’t disappear on their own. …
[*]Express your pain — and your responsibility. …
[*]Stop being the victim and blaming others. …
[*]Focus on the present — the here and now — and joy. …
[*]Forgive them — and yourself.
Let go of Anger and Bitterness[list=11]
[*]Feel it fully. If you stifle your feelings, they may leak out and affect everyone around you—not just the person who inspired your anger. Before you can let go of any emotion, you have to feel it fully.
[*]Give yourself a rant window. Let yourself vent for a day before confronting the person who troubled you. This may diffuse the hostility and give you time to plan a rational confrontation.
[*]Remind yourself that anger hurts you more than the person who upset you, and visualize it melting away as an act of kindness to yourself.
[*]If possible, express your anger to the person who offended you. Communicating how you feel may help you move on. Keep in mind that you can’t control how the offender responds; you can only control how clearly and kindly you express yourself.
[*]Take responsibility. Many times when you’re angry, you focus on what someone else did that was wrong, which essentially gives away your power. When you focus on what you could have done better, you often feel empowered and less bitter.
[*]Put yourself in the offender’s shoes. We all make mistakes, and odds are you could have easily slipped up just like your husband, father, or friend did. Compassion dissolves anger.
[*]Metaphorically throw it away. For example, jog with a backpack full of tennis balls. After you’ve built up a bit of rush, toss the balls one by one, labeling each as a part of your anger. (You’ll need to retrieve these—litter angers the earth!)
[*]Use a stress ball, and express your anger physically and vocally when you use it. Make a scrunched up face or grunt. You may feel silly, but this allows you to actually express what you’re feeling inside.
[*]Wear a rubber band on your wrist and gently flick it when you start obsessing on angry thoughts. This trains your mind to associate that type of persistent negativity with something unpleasant.
[*]Remind yourself these are your only three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it. These acts create happiness; holding onto bitterness never does.
