As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
Earlier this year I began to write about my physical health. Which I think was and is, quite a learning experience for me. As much of my focus was about psychological well-being. But my experiences showed me, and even acted as a teacher themselves. Where I learned about how psychological effects, can also be physiological. An example would be stress, that turns to chronic stress. Other relatable examples could be those who have suffered a heart attack or stroke. I learned through actual experiences that with dedication, one is able to facilitate healing, and even completely heal. Of course there are variations of pain, or healing that one experiences upon a day to day basis. But many factors such as learning how to manage pain, recognizing warning signs, or indicators that will increase pain, and how to manoeuvre through these, are some of the factors involved in physical healing, as well as keeping our mood elevated. To learn that a human being cannot only heal itself with supports, but also retrain the brain / mind completely. My experiences revealed the intricate connections between mind<=>Body, and also mind, body, heart, and soul / spirit.
The interconnections of the human body, and its systems exemplify that nothing is separate. While we can isolate to identify and focus, the interconnections reveal that the connectedness must also be carefully tended to. These thoughts don't suggest that we can heal in a single day / minute. Healing is effortful, each and everyday, depending on bodily capacity, and what the body desires to achieve. Healing and the focus upon health as this time of my life, also revealed a difficulty.
As someone who desires to give back, or be a contributor, and focus on purpose; It meant that I have to take a step back, a few steps, and maybe even some more - to focus upon my own health. This task sounds easier that it actually is. Where there are days of frustrations, mounting anxiety, or relentless efforts, to feeling a state of relaxation. One learns about the body, as it is tended too. Revealing the many stages of birth, re-birth, or even a living-death that the body goes through. The changes of emotional states through growth, to recognize what the natural / spiritual forces are trying to teach us a human beings.
