Encouraging Flow in the Hill Country

July 12, 2023
Working at the Horseshoe Bay Resort's Bayside Spa provides me an excellent opportunity to share flow--simply encouraging clients to look into it for themselves, and learn about it...They don't have to learn from me!

Flow arts are often self-taught--and if you have a natural knack for movement, you can figure it out, without my particular assistance. If you feel out of touch with your body, and it's not so natural, Elementally Intuitive Movement can provide a framework to help you arrive at feeling natural as you explore your sphere. 

Embodiment matters. 

When we feel disconnected from our bodies, we are less likely to take care of them...the less we take care of them, the more uncomfortable it may become to inhabit our vessels, so we disconnect more, perpetuating the cycle...until our bodies scream at us, if we don't listen. 

Even after years of practicing flow arts, I deeply appreciate the structure provided by the levels--when I mix them up, practicing Intuitive Integration (Level 5, the seventh level)...I know I will more fully mobilize my body when I explore within the parameters of each level.

The goal of the movement practice is mobilization.

The process of adhering to regular practice has shown me how much more capable I am when I maintain it; and the lack of energy that results when I take too long of of a break...it works best when practiced daily. 

Vessel maintenance matters. 

It doesn't have to be intense or extreme--it can be gentle and it can be fun.

Some of us need more gentle in our lives than others. 

I'm pleased to get to embrace gentility and share it others, both through massage therapy and Flow Arts-based self-care.

It might take years before this EFFF'n business takes off...I'm okay with that. Until then, I'll keep sharing, and practicing, and proving to myself the efficacy of the program. Because of EIM, I can do more. 

For now, that's enough. 

Thanks for being here; I'm glad you've found me. 

Life is Golden

April 20, 2023
Springing into this season...we have fully relocated to Kingsland, Texas and we love it here.

Looking back at the last two years...what a journey!

The Flow Arts classes did *not* take off at the Horseshoe Bay Resort--and I'm not surprised; not many people in the area know what flow arts are, and that's ok. 

I took that time to practice teaching, as if there were students--and honestly, I never wanted to be a fitness instructor at HBR. My goal from the start has been to share this movement progra...

Blasting Into Winter

December 1, 2022
With a few more weeks to Autumn, Texas has given us an early Winter (similar to our early Summer, ha!).

I thrived through the busy season--provided more sessions this year than last year--and felt more capable. 

Along with sharing hoops, I passed on the "Snake and Shake," an effective 2 minute self-care technique that gently mobilizes our bodies, and helps regulate our nervous systems--no implements required...just the will to deliberately practice it. 

Come January, I will be providing more sup...

It's Been a Hot Texas Minute...

March 31, 2022
At the end of June I started working at the Bayside Spa again; this time as a Horseshoe Bay Resort employee vs an independent contractor providing backup work through Zeel.

I have provided more massage sessions in the past few months than I may have half of my years of independent practice--and I *COULD* thanks to EIM. 

The more bodies I work on, the more patterns I recognize--and the more tools I develop to help people help themselves.

I've been sharing hoops and I love it so very much. 

I'm loo...

Fully Vaccinated!

May 29, 2021
I'm pleased to provide massage therapy again; under different parameters--and at a different rate. 

Taking time off gave me an opportunity to recognize how much *I* personally provide, as massage therapist; because it's more than massage. 

I provide a Wellness Partnership:

I provide mental and emotional support. 

I provide energy work.

I provide reflection and feedback. 

I provide tools for you to better support yourself.

I provide perspectives that asSister with perceiving your story from a differe...

Breathe in the EIR!

March 24, 2021
We are collectively growing; individually, and together. 

The challenges that we get to experience, have shown us what we are capable of; and who we do, and do not want to be.

Now we get to Expand Into Resonance. 

Like Elementally Intuitive Movement, EIR is a deliberate practice. 

The more we each deliberately and consciously practice Expanding Into Resonance (in all directions at once, in and out), the easier it becomes for the collective whole to experience that EIR, as well. 

What we do for our...

This word-spell guides me. 

I recognize it's been a bit since I posted in this sector; life has thrown us through loops.

We each adapt as best we can; that's part of practicing being "transitional."

Adapting to change is important; re-evaluating our expectations is necessary. 

Expectations are basically opinions about how we each think we want the world/environment/parameters/individual that we are observing, at the moment, to be...

Choosing the Optimistic Perspective

January 13, 2020
Today I had a conversation with a friend about the semantics of "optimism."

She took it to mean "positive to the extreme," which in my opinion would be more akin to "blind optimism"--believing that everything is going to work out because it "always does" due to some sort of magical belief. 

The opposite would be "blind pessimism"--like the belief that one is "cursed," and thus "doomed to suffer."

My perspective of optimism, is that one accepts that life has challenges, and that it's not always e...

Navigational Tools: The P's

August 23, 2019
In 2019, I have been practicing shifting my language.

Language is programming. How we talk to ourselves, is us talking to our nervous systems.

"Positive/negative" are words that I attempt to use primarily to describe polarity--but not persons, places or things...anymore, anyhow! (It's a programming practice).

A different perspective has been serving me well, thus far:

1. Is it practical?
2. Is it preferable?
3. Is it pleasant?

...to me? (Because everyone is different, so these answers vary as much a...

The Practice of "Being Okay With"

December 10, 2018

"How do you feel today?"


"Just okay? What's wrong?"

Nothing at all, really...I'm okay with the world and it's foibles.

To our nervous systems, being "okay" is a sustainable place to be; "okay" equates with "safe," which means we have more resources available for self-repair and restoration.

When we are "just okay," we aren't overly excited, which (while being a fun ride and an enjoyable experience) may reduce the energetic resources that are available to our self-repair/immune systems.

Sharing is Caring!

Margarita Navarrete-Hutchinson Sharing tools that assist us, as we figure out the "Humanning," help us on the journey of life, together. If my insights may be of service to others, I am grateful for the opportunity to share. May they serve you well.
