Coming Out Of The Fog.

What with being sick there hasn’t been a lot of thought process going on in this head of mine, maybe I’m getting better because I’m beginning to have some thoughts on what being sick has been all about. There are layers to this but to start with lets look at the physical body, this is something I’ve been pushing pretty hard even though I do my best to give it good nutrition, exercise and rest. I don’t enjoy being ill, but there has been a part of me that has enjoyed the fact that I haven’t been able to do anything much for the last four days.

I love pretty much everything that I do, but it’s a lot to juggle and only some of it brings in money to support me, which is then challenging in terms of saving up for things like holidays! So there is a fundamental change still on its way, but in the meantime I am determined to continue to refine the way that I support my physical body. My intuition has led me to mucuna pruriens, a medicinal herb that has a huge range of healing properties. If you require empirical evidence then better stop reading now, this is an intuitive journey for me as I feel into what’s right for my body.

You can hear what David Wolfe says about this herb at the end of this post, the part that got my attention was that it is a natural source of L-dopa which turns into dopamine, a neurotransmitter that buffers us against stress. It can also help to improve eyesight and with my schedule I really don’t have time to do my natural vision improvement exercises. So I found a source on e-bay that feels like it’s the right one for me but the seller is away, I will wait till they come back and then I will embark on a journey with this herb and see where it takes me.

There is some huge movement occurring on spiritual, emotional and psychological levels of my being at this time, and I will be talking about this in future posts. But for now, baby steps as I come out of the fog of illness, with any luck some therapeutic dancing tomorrow night if I am well enough, dance the last of the cold germs out into the night!

In this video, Superfoods Nutritionist David Wolfe passionately explains why he considers Mucuna Pruriens to be one of the most impressive, healing herbs on planet earth.
It is the highest (known) natural source of L-Dopa, which enhances dopamine, which makes us feel stable, happy, and confident. It has healed people from long-term stimulant abuse, repairs poor eyesight, improves hearing, enhances reproduction and hormone balancing in women, along with many other benefits. We only wish we’d heard of it sooner!

Trust And Surrender.

Okay, so in the end I’ve had to surrender to being sick, managed to get through work and play on the weekend, and then monday morning was spent in bed instead of yoga. That night I started losing my voice which means missing a shift on the crisis phones, guess it’s time to rest and just allow my body to release whatever it needs to. There is a kind of relief in that feeling, trust is often a bit tricky, but one thing I do absolutely trust in is my body’s wisdom.

I did go out last night for what’s known in my local club as a bunya meal, if you are in the community exchange system you can do that, but only on a monday night which is when they have the blackboard with 15 minute spots for musos. Nice not to have to cook and very nurturing to connect with my community, old friends and some newer ones, I even managed a bit of a dance. But before the music was over my voice was failing and that more than anything signalled that it was time to wend my weary way home, luckily only a 2 minute drive.

The message from my body is clear, rest, rest and more rest! I have also not been so good at following my own advice and intentions, so this evening I will do some meditation and bring my focus to raising my vibration. Probably the Telos Daily Activation of Light Meditation followed by some sitting meditation, with no voice I won’t be doing any toning that’s for sure! In that quiet space I will ask if there is anything I need to know at the moment. I have a sense of something opening up for me but I’m not sure exactly what it may be, I feel that my settling in one place may be soon but not sure about that either.

Not sure about much am I, that’s why I will ask for guidance, and if I don’t need to know then I will do my best to surrender to the uncertainty. Being ok with not knowing is often the hardest thing of all, and yet if you can do it, it’s also a blessed relief.

Found a lovely guided meditation to share with you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrgGouSUUPc
