Day 29 of #strala30--Doing my part
This week, I feel my healing has just been "going through the motions." I received an email yesterday from @judiehurtadoreiki about her experience during a retreat with John of God. One of her takeaways was that we have to be "all in" in our healing. We have to be active participants. It's not just showing up and saying, "Alright healer, do your thing", and then getting healed. It's about putting in the work.
Work isn't just for the physical body (taking pills, drinking teas, eating certain foods, moving in certain ways), it's for your emotional body too. This is the piece I've missed this week. The emotional--the healing affirmations, the loving thoughts, and kind gestures to myself--has gone untouched. Until today...mega journaling session, picking up my dusty guitar, praying, and listening to some loving podcasts have helped to lift my spirits.
These emotional pieces are what keeping the faith is all about. I haven't been believing in my healing. I've been on a one way ticket to negative self hate town, choking on the horse pills I've got to swallow along the way. Practicing ease is returning to your center, even when your spin off of your middle. Today, practicing ease was remembering I can heal and I am healing. It was caring for my soul in ways I haven't done in a long time (I mean it's been months since I've held my guitar much less strummed it), and it felt good.
Soulful, healing work is putting the physical and emotional together--taking the pills and affirming my health is getting better. It's drinking teas and journaling until I can't write anymore. It's eating these few foods and know upon my healing, a new plethora of combinations will open up to me. I'm rearranging my entire world and that always strikes the right chord with me.
