What is the difference among connected and unity?

Im often feeling something like extending my ¿balance? Like it were running throught my feet and from the inside of my arm and then to my partners shoulder. is that connection?. Sometimes, and dont ask me how, i manage to full unbalance my partner wit a little twist from my shoulder but i dont know how to move him in any directiob without increasing pressure. Any idea to practice?
you can read the discussion of connection and unity here http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showth...t=19184&page=6 starting with post # 136.

I can't really tell what you are doing so it would hard to say. a few minutes of hand-on time would fix things. IHTBF. when you start to work on this, you have to do it light and work up. it will take time for your body to change. i mentioned somewhere that it took me two years to get my body to change enough for me to feel it, and longer to be able to use it. there are a number of folks over there that work on these stuffs that could help to give you the right feedback.
