Truth is found
within the Heart
on the Path
For about two months now I have been involved with intensive therapies targeting my body’s spine and muscles to get them to work correctly. For years I have been compensating, in other words not using the appropriate muscles I should be using for certain physical actions. This resulted in the overuse of some muscles and the underuse of others.
In my excitement about crossing paths with not one genuine Healer, but two, I forgot my own Golden Rule which is ….
Listen to my body.
I forged ahead listening to what these two people recommended me doing. Wrong thing to do. I ended up in excruciating agony and exhausted to the bone. In speaking to my Chiropractor yesterday in the “tweaking session” I had with him, I explained how important it is for me to Journey according to me. I also explained to him by allowing deep tissue massage in combination with his very deep adjustments, I put myself into crisis mode. In hindsight, I would have
listened to my body and waited until my underused muscles gained more stamina to endure deep tissue massage.
Though I will achieve my goal of Wholeness at a slower pace by listening to my body, that is OK. Lesson learned that when you know your own Truth, the Passage becomes one uniquely tailored for you and one that you and you alone can tolerate. I have every confidence that my Journey to Wholeness will happen in the Perfect Time that is correct for this body/mind that houses ME, my Soul.
How I dream not to live in pain!!! That, my friends, is worth every tear, every inconvenience, every baby step I must take now, every moan … to be able to live without pain.
I’m listening to me
and shall achieve
all that is possible
for me to achieve.
