Breema-Körperarbeit Achtsamkeit und Präsenz in der Berührung by Pari Schneider & Klaus Pfeiffer

Wir möchten Sie zu Beginn des Artikels zu einer kurzen Übung einladen. Setzen Sie sich dafür aufrecht und in einer bequemen Haltung hin und legen Sie Ihre Hände auf ihre Oberschenkel. Ihre Ellbogen sind entspannt. Nehmen Sie ihren Atem wahr und auch ihr Gewicht, wie es vom Boden und vom Stuhl getragen wird. Dann streichen Sie mit Ihrer rechten Hand und ganzer Beteiligung dreimal sanft und zugleich bestimmt von ihrer linken Schulter über ihren Oberarm, Unterarm, ihre Hand und über die Finger aus. Wiederholen Sie das Streichen nun mit der linken Hand auf der anderen Körperseite und spüren Sie anschließend die Wirkung der Übung.

The more connected you become, the more vibrant your life becomes.

When you go into a forest, you see many, many trees growing, filled up with life. Where does all that life come from? Those trees are alive because sap is flowing through them. It’s the same with us. There is one energy. You have to be connected to it. The more connected you become, the more vibrant your life becomes. In that vibrancy, your mind functions with more intelligence, your feelings with more presence, and your body with more ability. If, through taste, you get to know this life energy, you gradually become connected to the Source that created it.

Whatever you’re doing, let it become complete…

Whatever you’re doing, let it become complete. Let each movement in Breema be one complete movement. When you wash dishes, pick up one plate and wash it, then put it away and pick up another one. When you walk, let one step mature on the ground, then, without pause, take another step. This way, you are present with yourself.

In the absence of fear and worry…

You have Body Comfortable in the absence of fear and worry. Why are we always worried? Because of the thoughts that pass through our mind. When you’re not experiencing your body inhaling and exhaling, it means you are having thoughts. You can’t tell your mind “Don’t think!” and so you can’t order yourself to not worry, to not be afraid. But you can say to your mind, “You have a job. Your job is to stay with the process of inhalation and exhalation.”

Supporting and receiving support from the entirety…

Nothing exists without the principle of Mutual Support. A carpet maintains its form by the support each knot gives all the other knots. A cup is a cup because every atom, through the principle of Mutual Support, supports all the other atoms to hold together. Look at a tree—the branches, trunk, fruit, leaves, and flowers have one thing in common that connects them—the sap. When a branch gets disconnected from the tree and the sap, it no longer has life. Likewise, if we lose our connection to the consciousness in the life force, we are not truly alive. We don’t know who we are, and we look to others to tell us! When you know you are being supported, you wish to support. And you can’t support just one thing, because there is no such thing as “one thing.” Nothing in the entire universe has separate existence. Everything is interrelated and interconnected. If you give support to one cell, you are supporting and receiving support from the entirety. This is so obvious, but you can’t know it by thinking it. You know it by tasting it is so.

The most precious gift you can give…

Don’t be afraid to connect to people. It’s the most precious gift you can give. When you have some interaction, some contact with people, connect to them. That increases your life force and supports them, too. When you connect, what you see of someone with your eyes is not important. Their name, where they’re from, and all the information your mind can collect about them is not important. What’s important is that you both exist in this moment. That’s connection.

Our attitude towards life…

Our attitude towards life creates energy blockages, because it causes fear and anxiety. In the absence of real knowledge and understanding, we experience fear. When you bring the mind to the activity of the body, a different kind of energy becomes available. That energy is healing, because it supports the life force. That’s how you nurture vitality instead of focusing on illness.

When you are connected to the bigger picture, your giving is something precious.

Giving and receiving need to be understood from a higher dimension. When you really give, you give to the Totality. When you really receive, you receive from the Totality. If you give to someone you relate to only in separation, you are giving only to the temporary part of them, which will only be here for seventy or eighty years or so. What kind of giving is that? But when you are connected to the bigger picture, your giving is something precious. When you smile genuinely at someone in the street, that’s true giving. When the way your waiter serves you isn’t quite perfect, but instead of expressing criticism, you remember how much life energy has been invested in the food that’s brought to you, that’s real giving. What this means is don’t forget your True nature. Don’t forget about the essential interconnectedness of all that exists. Don’t forget you are part of the Totality. When you remember this, giving and receiving have authentic meaning.

An inner atmosphere of balance…

There are trillions of cells in the body. And there is a constant exchange between them. Every thought has an effect on them. Every feeling has an effect on them. And each effect leaves its trace. We don’t see or know how we are affected. When you bring body and mind together, you can, to some extent, experience what psychological state you are in. Eventually, you become familiar with your “psychological neighborhoods.” You may see which neighborhoods you wish to avoid, and which are beneficial to be in. When you find yourself in a bad neighborhood, you don’t have to panic. You can just come back to the experience of body inhaling and exhaling. This way, you gradually learn how to allow Conscious energy into your life. Conscious energy is available when the body, mind, and feelings come together. Then you have an inner atmosphere of balance to support you when you become imbalanced.
