A recent email in my INBOX alerted me that I needed to moderate my blog and when I took a look at the site I noticed that it has been almost exactly 12 months since I last posted something here.
My goodness – a whole year without sharing my thoughts online. Even though my blog has seemingly “stood still” my life and ongoing personal evolution has not.
I continue to seek out the individuals and experiences that move me forward. I will always need my “alone time” to recharge my myself, but enjoy spending time with people who like me are seeking a healthier way of existence through enhanced knowledge of their personal truth.
I continue to feel better and better – emotionally, physically and spiritually via all these experiences. Occasionally I am surprised at how much change I can experience in a short time frame – yet another week may bring much frustration and anger due to my feeling stuck.
I was reminded recently of how our core physical health and internal comfort is very important to our overall health. Within a relatively short time period, I had three different healers concentrate on working on my upper back region where I carry a lot of muscle stiffness. The techniques used were different, yet all brought relief.
One healer, a gifted masseuse worked on me for a couple hours, but seemed to be concentrating on a small area of my back. The next day when I awoke I noticed a significant improvement in my breathing – just taking a breath was much less effort than the day before. Wow! What an empowering experience!
The second healer (I believe) had more of a Reiki healing background. However, when I got on his massage table he said something like “I feel that the best thing I can do for you is massage your upper back to help you relax”. He anointed my back with several essential oils and massaged my upper back and shoulders. The fragrance of the oils was a treat for my nose and seemed to assist in bringing relaxation to my body that evening.
The third healing practitioner who brought about a similar experience of ease was a Doctor of Chiropractic. After examining my body and musculature she also concentrated on areas of my back that were less flexible than they would be normally. Over the period of a week she adjusted me several times with the most remarkable experience occurring just last week: The morning after an adjustment I could once again feel my lungs fill up with breath much more easily than usual. What a magical feeling for someone who carried a lot of muscle tension for years and years!
I look forward to experiencing even more healing and increased easeful-ness so that I require less effort to accomplish my goals and feel more comfortable living in my skin.
