When you sit in a rocking chair, and you rock back and forth gently, it feels instantly soothing because subconsciously it reminds you of how you felt when you were rocked as a baby. And you were rocked as a baby because it simulated how you felt whilst in your mothers womb, and your mum or dad wanted to replicate that because inside the womb was when you felt secure, peaceful, protected, and they wanted you to feel the same so you’d go to sleep.
So, next time you’re rocking in a chair, spare a moment to realise that the calmness you’re feeling is exactly how you felt however many years ago, whilst just a foetus curled up in your mother’s womb. It’s a feeling which you’ve kept inside subconsciously your entire life, and it only surfaces when you rock.
Pretty mind-blowing, huh?
