For my part, I just caught a little bit of the flu (which distracted me from writing yesterday), but that's ok, I recognize it for what it is, and I know it'll soon pass.
Consider this premise - We are energy. Our energy ebbs and flows, where I suggest illness comes from both a blockage of our energy flow as well as an attack to it (from both ourselves and others). Sometimes I think about what this world will look like in 1000 years when we have truly grasped and integrated energy medicine, awareness, and holistic practice into our world.
As it pertains to my own health, I am in a constant state of listening, receiving, and interpreting my body and state of being. Where have I pushed it too hard this week? How am I meant to slow down? What am I meant to see and receive while I am in this state right here, right now?
In mainstream circles we always say fight this, fight that when it comes to medical issues, but what about embracing this, and embracing that? What about releasing this and releasing that (physically and energetically)? What about flowing with this and flowing with that (spiritually and experientially)? I suggest to you here that these latter techniques move us deeper into rebalancing our whole in our healing process, as opposed to tensing up and 'fighting,' thereby creating more stress on our systems and experiences.
What to learn more about who you are and who we are as energy beings?
Below is a link to my favorite book on the self, self-awareness, and energy healing to date. Not for the faint of heart, but I suggest to you it'll change your life as it did mine.
The Presence Process, by Michael Brown
