I’ve just finished receiving the chapter about posture for my latest book “Invented Afflictions and Movement Conditions”. I can’t wait to publicize this information so I’m posting it now.
I hadn’t realized just how important posture is, and you can believe me when I say I’ve been sitting up much straighter since I started this chapter!
Here’s to better posture for us all!

Posture in Staggered Solidity
Posture gives possibility of movement sublime. Freedom of movement extends from posture excellence. Exceling at posture is a worthwhile goal. The better the posture, how much better the living!
Extending the body upwards lengthens the spine and enhances the flows in the body. Bending the body forwards, sideways, or backwards for too long stresses the spine and disturbs flows. When flows are constricted, the body works harder to maintain balance. This unnecessary exertion can lead to permanently compromised health when the spine is held in the bent posture constantly.
Young children who maintain bent posture cause their bodies to work harder during times of healing and exertion. Teenagers who maintain bent posture cause their bodies to work harder during times of healing and exertion and create pressure on their vertebrae and musculature.
Adults in their 20s and 30s who maintain bent posture from their teenage years usually experience back pain, radiating pain from the back, and shortening of muscles. If the bent posture starts in their 20s and 30s, these adults may still have the direct and radiating pain, but the shortening of muscles will probably not yet take place.
When the bent posture begins in middle age, direct and radiating pain will accompany the bent posture and organ functionality may be affected. If the bent posture continued into middle age from the earlier years, the muscles will shorten, direct and radiating pain will occur, the intervertebral discs will age more quickly, the flows will slow, and the liver may be affected, as well as digestion.
If people begin to bend after reaching late middle age (60s) or into their 70s, the damage is less severe. A life of standing tall will have contributed to better health, so that the bending later on is less harmful. If the bent posture continued from earlier years, other organs and bodily processes will be negatively affected as well.
The vertebrae are masterful supporters of the body. They align in accordance with the parts of the body they protect. Their placement enables a strong steadfastness that is flexible in its limitations. The vertebrae enable bending, curving, and resilience.
Posture naturally expresses the positions of the vertebrae when the posture is extended upwards. The vertebrae are one on the other, stacked to support and provide space for all the internal body parts. When the vertebrae are forced into stacked crookedness, the space for the internal body parts is shifted. This shifting can be inconsequential or it can compromise functioning. If the stacked crookedness becomes chronic, the shifting of internal body parts can induce improper blood flow and elimination issues (sweat, urine, and others depending on the location of the shifting).
Movement is unnatural when the posture is slouched or crooked. Slouching and crooked walking have become fashionable, and the fashionability of walking improperly hurts whole populations. Slouching models encourage young men and women to slouch. Fashion that encourages wearing shoes with high heels creates generations with unnatural posture and movement. The slouching that comes from hours spent on mobile devices is equivalent to confinement in a cell that is too small; they both cause internal shifting.
Improper posture from car seats, airplane seats, and embarrassment (the posture that is assumed when a person is embarrassed) affect the posture in connection with other posture damagers. The worse the posture, the more the car seats, airplane seats, and embarrassment impact pain and internal damage.
Lack of exercise contributes to posture deterioration. Insufficient movement breaks when sitting for long periods of time contribute to posture deterioration. Negative viewpoint (of the world, of oneself, of society) and negative societal position also contribute to posture deterioration. Other contributors to posture deterioration are too little manganese in the diet, sleep that is regularly diurnal rather than nocturnal, and irregular work schedules.
Proper posture contributes to lack of back and neck pain, relaxed muscles, better digestion, deeper breathing, correct blood flow, reproductive efficiency, and protected brain functioning. The vertebrae may look staggered, their importance may seem questionable, and their evolution may be misunderstood, but the vertebrae should be looked at as one solid piece of engineering with all the parts placed in the exact positions with the exact connections to create amazing possibilities—possibilities of movement, well-being, and balance!
