elasticity is the ability of a body to resist a distorting influence and to return to its original size and shape when that influence or force is removed. Solid objects will deform when adequate loads are applied to them; if the material is elastic, the object will return to its initial shape and size after removal.
“It’s really important to not force information in when you can’t receive. To accept all the things in our history that we have not been able to absorb. And to, little by little, allow information in that we don’t have to do anything about except to accept. And to sit with it.
What I feel happens when more information comes in than we can process, in order to…deal with something that comes in that we can’t handle, we refuse the information into the posterior horn. And we say, ‘Go back, I can’t process this now. I need more time’. And so it goes back into the tissues and says, 'Tissues, hold this pattern until it can be processed’.”
