“Hardness and rigidity are companions of death. Fragility and flexibility are companions of life.” Lao Tzu
The Sanskrit word Namya can be translated as pliable, flexible, supple. When we talk about flexibility, we often think of activities such as yoga, dance, or gymnastics. However, mental flexibility is also important because it has a significant influence on physical functions. Flexibility of the mind facilitates physical movement, increases spectrum of motion, and helps to reduce stiffness, joint and muscle pain.
Rigidity can trap us at any time, especially when we are under pressure, when our perfectionism takes over or when we feel we are losing control. Our “old demons” resurface and we become inflexible, want things to be done “like this and not otherwise”, or we drown in phrases such as “yes but”, or “I can’t because”, “I know but”, “I’m bad at this”, “I’m not creative”, “I can’t trust because”, “I’m unable to decide quickly”, “it only happens to me”, “I can’t change” etc. We remain attached to our rules and to our work, and we are not able to change them.
Inflexibility is often one of the major causes that blocks evolution and healing and contributes to several physical disorders at the osteoarticular, digestive or metabolic level, among others.
By being flexible, we become aware that everything can change, we develop more resilience, acceptance, the ability to put things into perspective and we manage better the unexpected and the challenges. In fact, flexibility is part of emotional intelligence and therefore affects our ability to forgive, to love, to show compassion and empathy. Flexibility allows us to move towards new and positive ideas, to remain optimistic and caring and is the basis of resilience, of being able to remain receptive and open. Conversely, rigidity gives rise to emotions such as frustration, anger, feeling helpless, and feeds many limiting beliefs. The intelligence of the heart (Anahata) and the intelligence of Ajna (3. eye) imply docility and the ability to know how to adapt and to accept change, because everything is always changing within us and all around us. Change is an eternal cosmic constant that can be counted on at any time. The more flexible we become, the more serenely we can face difficult situations and obstacles and the more we are able to learn from our experiences.
