What is our connection to animals?
How is your animal instinct? The Psoas muscle is a key connection with animal.. Animals activate it humans do not. As David Attenborough once put it – we are all animals in clothing! We would be wise, therefore, to learn from them. For example, how do they survive trauma – simply by allowing their body to tremor to release their adrenalin and cortisol at the time of the event. We, too, can do the same, but sadly don’t because we have forgotten and suppressed our ability to release from the Psoas muscle our fight/flight centre.
Understanding the fundamentals
Whether repel water or let go of tension, animals shake off spontaneously! Wild animals naturally and instinctively release adrenalin and cortisol after the chase. Then they can carry on and do what animals do.
The Psoas Muscle
Your fight/flight centre
See the muscle highlighted in the image? Imagine the animal on two legs. We are really no different! The Psoas is attached to the diaphragm and runs down the back body, behind the organs to the top of the legs. Just like ours. It is the fight/flight centre.
Our Domestic Pets
Have you felt them shiver and shake?
We have had dogs for years. Like so many others, I used to think they were nervous when shaking. Now they and I know differently. Many things can distress a dog, such as fireworks, visiting the vets, or travelling. However, the tremoring to release adrenalin and cortisol keeps them calm. Dogs tremor for a variety of reasons, and it is natural.
