CARDIO MUSCULAR RELEASE (CMR)
In 1997 I was massaging people in California and I found many would come to me with scattered brains. I asked myself how to get rid of brain scatter, because my brain would start resonating with their brains and thus it was irritating to work on scatterbrained people. A month went by and while working on myself n bed one night I did a three-step jumper-cable holding technique. As soon as I did it, I realized I had discovered the anti-scatter method I was looking for. The technique for getting rid of brain scatter I called Cardio Muscular Release (CMR).
CMR works on increasing the conscious and vibratory connection between the heart and the sympathetic trunk running either side of the spine on the neck and thorax. It is the only thing I have found to get rid of brain scatter and to unlock the neck and shoulders from the inside out. The heart is a hologram for the entire neuro-musculature of the body. CMR is a neurological jumper-cable technique using the heart as a holographic key to unlock the muscles of the neck and shoulders and to take the static off the nervous system. It entrains and relaxes the heart, breathing, metabolism and brain, unlocking the neuromuscular system from the inside out; as such it is way more effective, profound and lasting than massage.
CMR is a simple technique that opens the neck/shoulders/heart and turns off the fight-or-flight and removes static from the central nervous system so current/consciousness can flow with less friction and greater efficiency. CMR is very useful to move through any fear or resistance as our contraction becomes tangibly felt and we progressively melt into a deeper sentient experience of our existence.
This technique can be self-administered and is useful for improving concentration, to take the static off the nervous system, prior to meditation, headaches, processing emotions, insomnia, and to relieve muscle pain and tension. The effects are accumulative over time and will permanently rewire the nervous system from more primitive reptilian function toward a more spiritual and less reactive condition. Done as a daily practice it is both preventative and restorative.
Car crash victims and others with PTSD will find this technique invaluable for getting relief from an overactive sympathetic nervous system (HPA axis). When working on the muscles that are involved in the vigilance to danger—the neck, shoulders and jaw—I often find that electrical energy and spasms occur in the legs. Showing that the ego/socialization structure of the brain that is also associated with the vigilance muscles is inhibiting the full release of the charge from fight flight. Normally an animal would run after it comes out of its freeze response. We humans however do not remember to run off the charge generated by exposure to the tiger of daily existence.
The heart is divided into three sections: 1. Left-top, 2. Right-top, 3. Bottom. There are three holding positions on the left side of the body then the three are mirrored on the right side.
Position 1: The three middle fingers of the left hand are placed along side left of the spine on the back of the neck; put fingertips onto the spine first and then pull off to the side to get good purchase on the ganglia. The right hand is placed on the left of the heart. Hold 5 minutes while throaty belly breathing.
Position 2: The head is turned to the right, and the right hand reaches behind the neck and holds the left neck at the point where the sternocleidomastoid muscle joins the skull just under the left ear. Left hand is on the right-side of the heart at the middle of the chest. Hold 5 minutes while throaty belly breathing.
Position 3: The left hand reaches up over the shoulder and down the back and the fingers poke into the Erector spinæ muscles alongside the spine between the scapulars. The right hand is on the bottom of the heart. While throaty belly breathing slide left hand slowly up the spine over the course of 10 minutes.
Repeat the three positions in mirror fashion on the other side of the body. Note all positions must be held for a full release to occur, otherwise one will continue to feel some disconnection and static energy. The key is to remain present and sensitive throughout the process. If you feel you need longer than a half hour practice either hold each position longer, or cycle a second time round. Meditation, Toning, the Inner Smile and dropping the back of the tongue can be done along with CMR offers a synergistic effect.
