• Noble Posture—Upright walking is essential to the stabilization of sovereignty in everyday life in order to maintain our noble stature. This is so because the advanced human principle is tied into the wiring of our upright posture and the bipedal state. Also the liberation of our breathing in combination with the correct feeding of energy and oxygen to the brain reinforces the full incarnation of Presence. Plus the left/right leg movement enhances binaural communication between the hemispheres and aids whole brain integration. Awakening sovereignty is reliant on the perfect orientation of the head on the spine to allow the full flow of consciousness between brain and body, thus strength, flexibility and position of the spine and posture come into play as the foundations of the sovereign state. This is the simplicity of the core sovereignty teaching.
• Upright Walking—When changing life patterns the body-brain we created in the past has to be restructured, or else the behavioral and social patterns will still continue. Upright walking is one of the most effective ways of repatterning consciousness beyond defensive conditioning. Go for a walk and keep your eyes focused at eye height or higher, ie: you will be looking at tree tops, roofs and sky. You may find this difficult at first but keep working into the position by easing out the kinks in your jaw, neck and shoulders. The upright position puts the head correctly on the spine, breathing is lower into the lungs, digestion is assisted and shoulders are naturally down and back. The brain is fed with more blood and oxygen and is able to detoxify and drain better, sinuses clear and the throat opens up to more energy and emotion. Dropping the back of the tongue and jaw opens the breath to oxygenate the brain more fully, doing the inner smile while upright walking helps maintain the ennobled-attraction alignment.
When first starting out with upright walking you will probably find you have to spend considerable energy and effort in the beginning to retrain your posture and metabolism. As resistance to change arises in the jaw, yawn those blockages away. It helps to emote or make sounds to break out of the Borg…ie: the more down trodden, head forward stance most of us normally walk around in. Pain may be felt in the facial muscles as they let go of their former set. Rub a thin film of Magnesium chloride liquid on your face, neck and shoulders prior to your walk; this will assist in the decontraction process. The longer your upright walking session the more lasting its influence will be on the rest of your life. If you do go for an epic upright walk, say of 4 or more hours then have an Epsom salt bath directly afterwards to prevent muscle soreness. You will also notice the need to sleep more at the beginning of the practice as the restructuring becomes integrated at a deep level.
As we break out of our dog-beaten slave stance we stand up tall in the stream of life and recover higher, majestic levels of our humanity. The change in our brain chemistry magically creates a whole new life—as structure determines fate. For pineal health do not wear sunglasses on your walks but take some with you in case you have to walk towards the sun and have to be directly looking at it with your upright gaze. You will find it impossible to be depressed during an upright walk and if you do the Inner Candle at the same time, you can bathe in the perpetual honey of your own noble being in connection to nature. For this you must be outside and walking within the electromagnetic energy currents of earth and sky.
Since this posture increases energy to the brain you may feel unsettled and disorientated for a while afterward. If you continue with upright walking as a daily practice you will loose this sense of discomfort and establish a new equilibrium and personality reflecting a loss of hesitation, rigidity and increased Flow. As you move into Whole person functioning you will notice parts of you that were stagnant come alive and you will discover newfound gifts you didn’t know you had. As your brain and head come alive, so too does your heart and the rest of your bodymind and soul as well. As the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said that you should "never trust a thought that didn't come by walking." Well I say…never trust a thought that didn’t come by upright walking!
