Why I ski

“I ski to reclaim my spirit from a conditioned world that is
always seeking to limit my being”.
“I ski to remember that I came into this world to express something
magnificent and that there is glorious power within me and that I am here
to express endless joy and endless freedom”.

 

 How do I proceed to reclaim my joyful spirit?

 AThe first step is to realise that my body is an antenna designed to receive that glorious power that exists within me. The antenna’s purpose is to feed the body with high quality information from which moves are made so that I can express all the joy that skiing has to offer.

How do I know that my antenna is functioning properly!

My antenna is fully functional when my entire being, body and mind, is relaxed.

Parasitic thoughts, feeling, emotions, beliefs, judgements and body tensions clog up the antenna.

Once tensed, the body is dysfunctional because the antenna is inoperative. With an inoperative antenna, no significant guidance is available.

 2% efficiency is the norm!

Feeding technical instructions into a clogged system has 2% efficiency.

 Why the tension?

Tensions result from our conditioning, our thoughts, our feelings, our emotions, our beliefs, our judgements and our lack of awareness. Our lack of awareness about what we are, and of how we work in the world is keeping us trapped into the universe of perpetual limitations. It is this feeling of being trapped into perpetual limitations that is subconsciously making the parasitic contractions in our muscles. Are you following me on this?

The mechanism of perpetual limitations

The mechanism of perpetual limitation uses the denial of the personality to fulfil its deed by suggesting to the intermediate skier that going down the Face (Famous black run in Val d’ Isère) is a great idea. As the unsuspecting skier, who is already experiencing more than enough limitations on a blue run, enters the vortex of the steep crowded and icy “Face”, it is certain beyond doubts that the skier will be much more limited than on the blue run. Parasitic body tensions will be massively amplified, and the antenna will shut down further.  No joy and no freedom whatsoever are expressed by the being.  As far as being is concerned, the strain on the body from having to make that descent blocked the expression of any possible joy that it came here on earth for. Personality, on the other hand, is oblivious to messages spoken by body and by being and fails to see that it took every aspect of the person into the hell of perpetual limitations.  

It is the feeling of being trapped into a universe of perpetual limitations that first needs to be removed in order to become the free spirit skier that you truly be.

Telling someone to “relax” has no effect; tensions will disappear only by blowing apart the beliefs, feelings, emotions, thoughts and judgements from which they are made of.

Clearing beliefs

As you free yourself from beliefs, judgements and emotions, you body becomes more and more relaxed and your antenna becomes more and more clear, allowing your being to perceive more and more of what it is you are meant to do to express your joy and your freedom.

Clearing the mind is the biggest aspect of the process of eternal development because it is the most powerful one.

Eternal development

The process of eternal development helps you to remember that you came into this world to express the magnificence of your glorious power in the form of endless joy and freedom.

Transform the “being” aspect of yourself.

The Law of Three

“I ski to reclaim my spirit from a conditioned world that is always seeking to limit my being”

On the limitations list we find “Ignoring The Law of Three”

 

sacred skis 400

Skis are Sacred

 Science tells us that every phenomenon is the manifestation of three forces and that one or two forces alone cannot produce anything.

The law of three states that three

forces – an active force – a passive

force and – a neutralising or

reconciling force must enter into

every kind of creation.

 

A simple example is that of a sailboat: the boat is passive, the wind is active and the sail is the neutralising or reconciling force. When we see that something is stuck in the same place and not coming to fruition or completion, this is often because the third force is lacking in our perception and lacking in our behaviour. When the third force is lacking, we are stuck in polarised perspective of the world. Good and bad, right or wrong, etc.

In skiing then, we have the slope as the active force, the person as the passive force and the skis as the neutralising force. The neutralising force being the one needed to reconcile you with the pull of the slope.

 

Skis are mediators because their role is to “mediate and support” the relationship that exist between you, the slope, the mountain and the world. Thus skis are to be given the same loving care that you give your sweetheart. And “bullying” or “imposing” your point of view to your sweetheart does not get you very far. Same goes for your skis, they are very, very, very allergic to being bullied. Skis came into existence not to be bullied, but to serve you, yes to serve you, and to serve you to become your most brilliant harmonious self.

Aside from going over rocks, what is the biggest bullying act you can do to your skis?

What kills off the mediator living in your skis and that is the biggest bullying act you can commit towards your skis (and ultimately towards yourself) is YOUR DESIRE TO TURN through your own doing. In other words, you are excluding your skis from offering you their gift. Your “wanting” to do the turn yourself generates torsional tensions in your body that are opposing the ski’s ability to serve you. Your skis are there to serve you but they are not your slaves, they want to you offer what they have being created for. And until a shift in your consciousness happens, you and your skis will fight each other. And as nothing is working out, you increase the fight with efforts, tension and strain, to gain control, to dominate, and you become further entrenched in the usual polarised and forceful “yang” masculine energy view of things. At this point all I can wish for you is good luck.

So how do we make the shift in consciousness?

By realising that your skis are sacred and they are made to support you and to turn you.

By acting on that realization meaning that all you thoughts, feeling and actions become devoted to “being turned” and to “being supported”.

Being turned is a highly creative “yin” feminine energy. The yin energy is profoundly lacking in skiing and its absence is responsible for the many difficulties experienced.

Accepting to be supported and accepting, “being turned” is having the ability to use the neutralising and reconciling force of your skis.

“I ski to remember that I came into this world to express something

magnificent and that there is glorious power within me and that I am here

to express endless joy and endless freedom”.

 

Cheers, see you soon on the slopes of Val D’Isère

Past events

“I ski to reclaim my spirit from a world that is always seeking to limit my being”

On the limitation list we find: bumps and past energy

 

Past energy is probably the hardest one for skiers to deal with.

Not only do we have to avoid squandering our thoughts on the past, in skiing we also have to deal with our body.

The reflex to stiffen our body is the automatic response we have to a loss of balance.

This is a good thing. Muscles tense up to strengthen and stiffen our body, giving it resilience to regain or maintain balance. This natural mechanism gets corrupted, however, when our mental energy moves away from the present moment to recall past events.

To explain what is happening let’s use, as a comparison, the suspension system of a car when driving over potholes.

When the wheels hit potholes the shock absorbers and springs stiffen to prevent the car coming off the road. So far the analogy with the car is a good one, but we are not the same as the car and in this difference the problem lies. The car’s suspension system does not have a memory, nor can it anticipate in advance where the potholes are. It deals with every pothole as if it was the first and the mechanism returns to neutral once it has cleared the pothole.

Imagine for a moment that the car freaks out and stiffens its suspension fifty feet in advance because it remembers not liking the impact of the previous pothole.

The suspension system would no longer be in neutral during the moment of impact. It would have less elasticity and that is the problem.

Imagine that eventually impacts from potholes worry the suspension system so much that it becomes unable to return to neutral and remains stiff all the time. This is exactly what happens to us. The problem that we have is that, once jolted, we associate bumps to be the cause of the unpleasant stiffening of our body.

Emotionally we begin to apprehend impacts to come.

Very quickly we get to the point where just the sight of a mogul ten yards ahead is enough to trigger the body’s stiffening response. The next stage is where just thinking about moguls automatically triggers the body’s stiffening response to the point where we never loosen up.

This vicious circle occurs because we nourish past thoughts to apprehend the future.

Gradually we loose our ability to return to what was once our neutral state.

 

This neutral state can only be recovered once we have freed past energies from within the cells of our being.

Really good “Oldie” video on the art of mogul skiing.

Enjoy

Expectations

 “I ski to reclaim my spirit from a conditioned world that is always seeking to limit my being”  

 On the limitations lists we find “expectations”

 

Peace begins when expectations ends

Your EGO teaches you to believe that you have to have a really good reason to be joyful and happy…Whilst at the same time it is also teaching you that you only need a tiny reason to be upset about something.

The more powerful your ego is, more expectations will drive you crazy.

The energy of expectation 

For the energy of expectation to exist, the energy of disappointment also needs to exist.

One cannot be without the other.

Whiteout

Whiteout

 

Let’s say that you arrive in resort Saturday evening in a blanket of fresh new snow and you awake on Sunday morning in a total whiteout…you are disappointed.

 

You can choose to be disappointed and you can mutter and whinge all day in your misery.

Or you can recognise that it is your attachment to your expectation, to what you wished for, that has soured your view of the world.

The whiteout just is 

The whiteout just is, it’s nothing personal and your personal cloud of grey will not affect it one bit. Your disappointment will only feed your insistence on being disappointed; it will only heighten the contrast between the day you had in mind and the day that is. Your disappointment can only exist within the self-imposed misalignment between your expectations and the reality that is.

Positive thinking?

Should you then douse your mind with positive thinking and pretend that the day is blessed with sun when it is not? No, because if you do that, you’ll create another misalignment between pretence and the reality that is.

 

There is no need to pretend anything because there already is a reality. To squeeze disappointment out of your mind, you have to choose, welcome and embrace the reality that is. You are now in alignment and there is no room for disappointment.

 The eternal now

Ski in the eternal now, in the ever present here. That’s all there is anyway. And when you do ski here/now, the gates of all possibilities slide open and problems disappear.

 

Transform the “being” aspect of yourself.

 

Clearing the mind

As you free yourself from beliefs, judgements and emotions, you body becomes more and more relaxed and your antenna becomes more and more clear, allowing your being to perceive more and more of what it is you are meant to do to express your joy and your freedom.

repetitive patterns

“I ski to reclaim my spirit from a conditioned world that is always seeking to limit my being”

On the limitations list we find “repetitive patterns”

Repetitive patterns

What is keeping you stuck in some kind of repetitive pattern that you cannot shake?

Busy or free

Busy or free

Lets listen to the heart here:

When you make an attempt to generate something new and different and it does not happen and old habits occur again and again; how do you feel at that moment?

The most frequent answer to that question is: “I feel frustrated that I am not getting anywhere!”

Do you understand the law of attraction?

Have you heard of the idea of not basing how you feel on what is happening outside of you?

You see, when you say that you feel that you are failing, you are reacting to the outside circumstances with disappointment and frustration and all you’re actually doing is reinforcing the fact that you haven’t changed your emotional vibrations one iota. You are vibrating emotionally at the exact frequency that is connected to what you no longer wanted to happen, so it keeps happening over and over again. Does that make sense to you?

So how do you make a vibrational choice that serves you well?

  • At any given moment, look at all the things that are available to you that you are capable of acting on.
  • Choose the one that contains the highest amount of excitement and enthusiasm and joy.
  • If 2 options seem equally exciting, choose the one that you have the greatest capacity to take action on at that moment. That’s it. That’s how you choose.
  • Always choose the one that excites you the most and secondly, always choose the thing that excites you the most that is physically possible to take action on.

Follow your Joy

Following your joy, your enthusiasm, your  excitement is not only the driving engine of your reality; it is also the automatic organising principle.

Forget the details

You don’t need to know the how nor the details, you just need to act on your joy, your enthusiasm and your excitement. The conscious mind is not designed to understand how thing happen.

A limited conscious mind

The conscious mind is only designed to perceive how things happened. It is not designed to know how things are going to happen. Higher self does that for you. All you need to do is act on the opportunity containing your highest enthusiasm and your highest physical capacity of acting on it.

Transform the “being” aspect of yourself.

Feelings

“I ski to reclaim my spirit from a conditioned world that is always seeking to limit my being”

On the limitations list we find “feelings”

 Feelings

 

Judgements in powder

Judgements in powder

Picture yourself amongst friends skiing off piste. The slope is immaculate powder. The sun is shining and it is a perfect day. You feel good about yourself. This is exciting. The instructor skis off, floating wonderfully from turn to turn, with grace and harmony. Your friend sets off and he’s the same standard as you and…and wham your friend does a massive head plant scattering equipment all over the mountain. It’s your turn to go, how do you feel now? – Has this ever happened to you?

 

Judgements runs your feelings

 

Why is it that witnessing your friend’s head plant influences how you feel? It’s because you have judged what you have just witnessed. Judgement is now controlling your perception of the situation.

 

Moving beyond judgement

 

Recognise that it is a judgement

Ask your body if this judgement originate from your free will or does it come from someone or something else.

In this case it come from your friend’s fall. You have absorbed in your cellular structure, HIS IDEA of power skiing. The problem arises in you because you passed a judgement on what you have seen.

 

Transform the “being” aspect of yourself.

Clearing Beliefs

As you free yourself from  beliefs, judgements and emotions, you body becomes more and more relaxed and your antenna becomes more and more clear, allowing your being to perceive more and more of what it is you are meant to do to express your joy and your freedom.

Judgement

“I ski to reclaim my spirit from a conditioned world that is always seeking to limit my being”

On top of the limitations list we find “judgement”.

 

Judgements is the mechanism you use to scare yourself.

Judgements are commands you decide to be so. Judgement is the process that you use to separate yourself from your true self. Judgement, once in place, begins to slow down the functioning of the organs, of the ability to process life and to be clear.

One judgement after another, the organic system is gradually shutting itself down until we have finally judged ourselves right out of existence.

Judgement

Judgement

 Judgement is invalidating that which you do not prefer.

Whenever you judge anything, by focusing your attention on it, you exchange energies with it, and so you “become” that vibration. So you automatically become the very thing you disapprove of.   You become that which you invalidate. 

Preference, on the other hand, is not judgement.  

Preference is exercising your ability to discern what is really “you”, what excites you, and then making choices aligned with the real “you”. 

Could you imagine having a “zero judgement day” on the mountain. In the absence of

judgement, you would feel secure, confident, grounded and in the present moment.

Clearing your mind

As you free yourself from beliefs, judgements and emotions, you body becomes more and more relaxed and your antenna becomes more and more clear, allowing your being to perceive more and more of what it is you are meant to do to express your joy and your freedom.

Clearing beliefs is the biggest aspect of the process of eternal development because it is the most powerful one.

Allowing

 

 “I ski to reclaim my spirit from a conditioned world that

is always seeking to limit my being”

  

On the limitations list we find our misuse of the

Law of Allowing

 

The Law of Allowing

Lindsey Vonn uses the law of allowing

Lindsey

Lindsey

 

Ankles are allowed to tilt to the max, giving amazing edge angles.

 The pelvis is allowed to get close to the ground by complementing the desire of the ankles.

 The Jaw allows the uninterrupted flow of motion.

 

The energy behind allowing is the energy of receiving

There is energy behind allowing; it is the energy of receiving. Allow yourself to be in the energy of infinite receiving.

There isn’t much receiving going on in this reality, as a matter of fact; this reality is dedicated to the total exclusion of it. Everything is based on “if I give you this, what do I get”, and “if I accept this what do I have to give you”?  There is an alternative, as the infinite being that you truly are, you can receive everything…everything. The thing is, you have to choose it.

It is all about being willing to receive 

 

By the way, there is not such think as a skiing performance issue; all performance issues are created by what you are unwilling to receive.  In this reality, you always have to remind yourself to receive because you were never taught how to receive… Lindsey knows how to receive…She asks for it.  

 Lindsey wins as she is willing to receive

 

As you free yourself from beliefs, judgements and emotions, you body becomes more and more relaxed and your antenna becomes more and more clear, allowing your being to perceive more and more of what it is you are meant to do to express your joy and your freedom.
