Where I used to burst out my front door on a weekday evening and run hard until I was wheezy—certainly an inefficient way to convey the body—I have found myself more and more interested in theories of running, and that theoretical interest is shaping my practice.
In the library, my little computer screen glows with my notes on meter, but I also keep open a web browser filled with resources relating to running—websites, forums, pace calculators, workout schedules. I have become interested in calculating my pace indeed, I bought a watch to do this for me , and I think more about what my arms are doing, where my feet land how far ahead of my body?
And on which part of my foot—heel-strike or mid-sole? I also think about that most poetic of words: cadence. Cadence, in running terms, is how many times per minute your feet hit the ground. Olympic athletes and marathon champions will maintain a rate of around steps per minute, and sometimes higher—plus is not unheard of.
To keep up this kind of effort, a strong strength of rhythm is needed. The best advice is a two-two breathing pattern—when you breath in for two steps, and breath out for the next two.
In, in, out, out, in, in, out out, fast feet, fast feet. This is the basic rhythm that keeps the popcorn-thoughts popping. Call on Tiger as your Power Animal when you need renewed confidence. There is nothing uncertain with Tiger energy and medicine — this cat is the perfect embodiment of elegant power.
As Tiger energy guides she teaches self-actualization — you begin to feel comfortable in your own skin and even revel in it. That is why Tigers often come to those who have poor body images or love self-esteem.
Whatever your goals are energetically, Tiger as a Power Animal provides tireless discipline and energy. From a Shamanic standpoint Tiger symbolizes healing, the immune system and clearing environmental toxins from your system.
Dreaming about Tigers often represents your personal will. When Tiger enters your dreamscape, it may represent your untamed nature, and a need to let your wild side out to play.
If the Tiger chases you, your dream is encouraging you to explore and embrace your Shadow Self to achieve a greater sense of wholeness emotionally and spiritually. If you are fleeing from a Tiger in the jungle, you may feel overwhelmed by present conditions or your dream is telling you that you are not ready to face what it is you fear the most. To dream of a tame Tiger foretells of conditions free of emotional turmoil or overcoming phobias.
In Chinese Astrology, those born under the sign of the Tiger are bold, spirited, capricious, and poised. Anyone born under the Tiger Zodiac Sign is charismatic, has a fiery personality, and knows all-too-well how to turn on the charm. Sometimes Tiger People are a bit erratic and stubborn, and if they are not careful, their temperament can turn volatile. In China, Tigers embody pride, bravery, fierceness, defense, and austerity. People have images of Tigers in their homes or on their attire as a means of protecting the property or person.
Tigers also represent abundance, which is seen in the deity governing wealth: Tsai Shen Yeh, whose depictions often portray the God with a Tiger at His side. Friends, allies, lovers mill solemnly, The hunter, when dying, is rarely seen. In a pool of his own essence Tyger's eyes of sapphire fade in the dying light. Once, a long long time ago, The Warrior spirit would have endured. Grievous wounds pierce shattered heart, Welcoming, the night extends her lover's embrace.
To the eyes and hearts and. I Stand Fields of battle sapping strength, Psychic wars which consume. A single soul against the world at large, Tattered, blooded, at the verge of the dark. Changing times, these are, The jihad over money, soil, greed. In growing pools of crimson a warrior stands, In his hand, a broken-winged dove. In the gathering storm, A weary glance across the plain, Another wave approaches, With the fallen rising once more.
A lone tiger licks at mortal wounds, Not in futillity, but as a message. The masses draw to with much beating of sword to shield, He stands alone, a single feather to remind him.
