Our body - not just a repository of our mind, will and our feelings, it is the very source of our feelings, our will, and even our minds. The way in which our body is built and how it is able to - a serious factor that influences and situational emotional state, and the prospects for personal development. In psychology, the study of body structure and the internal state of the relationship of man began with research and E.Krechmera HS Sheldon. They described the relationship of three types of body constitution, and three types of character. The descriptions are very similar, only the names are different: endomorph - analogue astenikov, ectomorph - analogue picnic, mesomorph - similar lifting. |
In psychotherapy research gained popularity Alexander Lowen, the author of several books on body-oriented psychotherapy. Loewen studied how chronic muscle tension in various parts of the body affect human health. According to his observations, the bodily expression of the emotional health of a grace of movement, good muscle tone, good contact with others and with the soil under your feet (in the terminology of bioenergy - is a "grounding"), a clear view and a nice soft voice.
Just as everyone has an expression, each of us has a "body image" - unique, but the combination of features and characteristics of our body is quite popular, which creates our mood and our character. Each body has its own pattern, which consists of drawing gait, shoulders reversal or stoop, a certain poise and a certain pattern of gestures, facial expressions and the characteristic familiar intonations. Together with the expression pattern of the body creates a personal-psychological background, which reveals the human condition, and forms it. Stooped, shuffling gait, frozen eyes and pursed his lips habitually hurt - bad personal background. Straight back, free collected gait, lively eyes and a smile on his face - an option more interesting.
Man begins with body image. That is to say: with the muzzle or face, or with the carcasses of the camp, with the legs and strong and beautiful hands. As well as the physical energy or pale weakness. The way in which our body is built, what is his pattern, and in what condition it is - a serious factor that influences and situational emotional state, and the prospects for personal development. It's amazing how decisive for the people for their character, moods and dispositions is their body: their body image.
Let these sketches - the food in the subway, human Showcases before me. Well, he can not with the body, or rather, with such a person, to be the chief. In the face, shoulders, hands in motion as though imprinted:. "I have no one here" although some already degenerating purebred copy of the spiritual nature of sitting next to him. And over there, is with your mouth closed, - Marketplace skandalistka from birth. Indeed, through her body - not trample. Next, worthy of museum display cases, a copy of - the victim, strict and dignified bearing his cross. Behind her sits an accountant, smilingly blunt to everything that does not fit into the framework of debits and credits. But tumbled into the car seat and fell to beef breed, which, in addition developed digestive and basic instinct, there are no other details.
Watching the body pattern of other people, we can say a lot about their level of development, lifestyle, character and state of mind. The simplest thing you should pay attention - this posture, gestures and gait. Walk for an experienced man of the personnel speaks of man more than his resume. Slipshod gait - a disorganized life. The usual antics and pereminanie from foot to foot, from toe to heel, the more usual shifty eyes - is the inability to calm, confident openness. Underdeveloped fine motor finger, palm shovel - means the inability of a person of fine feeling and a quick sharp thinking. Clips neck area - it is always a lack of confidence, it is always a little neurosis.
Our conversation about the interaction of body and soul, we would like to separate from authors such as Louise Hay, Louise Bourbeau and other popularizers of pseudo-scientific ideas of psychosomatic medicine. Louise Hay believes that angina is a consequence of the fact that you hold back from harsh words and feel the inability to express themselves, hemorrhoids - fear not to meet at a certain time, the anger in the past and the fear of parting, sexually transmitted diseases - from guilt of sexual violence as self-punishment, and constipation - the reluctance to part with old thoughts and bogged down in the past ... Yes, it is a brilliant business model that makes a sick person also client of a therapist, but the scientific basis of these fantasies is not.
Expression, eyes and lips - things are more subtle than the body posture, gestures and gait. They are difficult to describe, but this information is deeper and more accurate for a careful man. Carefully observe characteristic of human facial expressions: if the eyes - a mirror of the soul, the expression on his face - a record of all his destiny. Listen to the voice of a man. Best of all, if you can not hear the content, will be able to listen to the voice just like the music or the voice of a foreigner, then you will hear his character.
"Wise people will read your past life by your appearance, gait, behavior. The property expression of nature. Even the smallest detail of that day shows. The man's face is like a mirror reflecting what is inside," wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our body - a book in which our life is written: not just the past but the future, and who are able to read this book - it is read. The five - seven years on everyone's face is all written in the eyes of each already imprinted his values and his way, and you just need eyes to see it all.
The adoption of strong poses - such as posture of confidence, even in situations where we do not feel confident - affect blood testosterone and cortisol levels and increases our chances of success. MBA students often exhibit a full range of non-verbal expressions of power. Some of them behave like real alpha males, they occupy just two places and pick up just two hands, when they want to answer. Other students simply fade when they occur, and it shows on their faces and the position of the bodies - they literally reduced in size. Social psychologist, professor and researcher at Harvard business school, Amy Cuddy shows how we can use body language to change our understanding of ourselves.
Correcting their own body image, we get additional opportunities to manage their condition. Putting yourself energetic and confident gait, we create the basis for the usual self-confidence. Keeping alive and the person concerned, we raise their motivation to work. In working with couples who want to learn how to negotiate with each other, we often recommend that they buy soft toys that you can hold in their hands and gently stroking his hand while talking. As long as the hand gently stroking bear or seal pup, as gently sound and intonation are talking quietly, understanding each other: the soft hand of an adequate mental attitude. If the hand of one of the interlocutors begins to "unscrew" seal pup's head, so the conversation went in the wrong direction. We need to stay and something to change what is happening.
His body can make a beautiful and help your life. How? What you usually need to pay attention in the first place? Primarily useful to achieve the following objectives: to stoop to replace the royal carriage, remove bodily rattling, learn relaxation and confident gestures. When you deal with it and feel how life has changed, you do not have problems, and perfection. These are: the royal manners, soft gestures, a correct vector force, build and deliver voice gait.
