Tips Tuesday – Radio Silence! Ooops! Tuning Back in!
Wow! It’s been a wild ride for a few weeks! I tend to be a pretty intense person. I don’t just ASK how you are doing I want to know every detail, why you feel that way and how we can improve it!
So what happens when the wires cross, the station loses connection, you go off the tracks, you get the idea. This is what happened to me! It happens to everyone once in a while! It turns into a crazy downward spiral as your thoughts get the best of you, how everyone and everything has done you wrong, how victimized you feel, how everything you touch turns to s#!%. Well I rode that train now for a couple weeks, getting so distracted I found myself forgetting my own skills and tools to redirect, rebalance and reboot myself. I am so grateful though, because through all of this I was reminded of how easy it is to fall back into old traits old behaviors. It reminded me of how easy it is to get back on the right track too, adding that people who have never found their right flow can easily find it with guidance. It reminded me of the negative thought patterns that can try to convince you that you are stuck, hopeless, helpless, and alone, that are all lies, but seem quite convincing at the time when your frequency is low.
It was a succession of family emergencies, a fall inducing great physical pain, a busy season for HHDS, efforts to maintain two businesses with The Institute For Harmonious Living and then the inevitable Technology failure. Two websites inaccessible at once. Dunt Dunt Duuuuuuuh. For my overwhelmed system it was all too much and tight chest, bad eating habits, lack of sleep, fight and flight, physical pain from the fall all began to ensue the onslaught of depression and grief began. Reminding me of the loss of my father, the distance from family, the efforts in vain to keep two buisnesses floating. I even started noticing a cold trying to sneak in the back door! So what did I do????? You won’t bevel it. You ready?…….
I got a long over due hair cut, a pedicure, I had a long soak in a Himalayan salt and baking soda bath, I wore crystals EVERYWHERE, used essential oils, meditated, did EFT in the shower, did yoga, started juicing, got re inspired through links to Mindvalley, and did a couple of angel card readings just for me, while reminding myself of all of the tools I had at my disposal to be well and stay well. How empowering. Not once did I have to reach outside of myself to feel better. If anything when I did indulge that lower vibration addict to share my grief and complain during breif weak moments the whoa-is-me story, it actually made me feel worst.
So no, there is no magic pill to feel/get better. But it doesn’t cost anything once you have mastered the basics in self care, and you don’t have to make an appointment with a Dr and get a prescription or even leave the house. There are so many tools at your disposal, and you can build on your tool kit by learning Reiki, reading self care books you are intuitively drawn to, by finding Alternative Health Care practitioners and service providers like HHDS to offer you Reiki infused services that can enhance your empowerment self care tool kit!
Now don’t get me wrong, I believe in daily regimens to keep a person balanced and strong, and for the most part unshakable, however life doesn’t always throw the same patterns at you, sometimes everything happens at once and even the most seasoned self care guru can be toppled. This is a good reminder of how we are all equal, and human.
I shared this vulnerable Tips Tuesday because I know better then anyone the emotional impact events in our lives can have, how seasons can affect us, how feeling hopeless can feel like a bottomless pit. Before I attained Reiki Level one and opened HHDS my reality was very different from now, I did not have the tools and skills to bring myself out. Strangely from the outside my life could have looked rather perfect to many while on the inside storms brewed! But from that helpless place I found hints here and there to stash away for a later day when it would be useful again to me, and now to you, through our services at HHDS and the Coaching, Workshops and Certification Programs to empower you through The institute For Harmonious Living, (instituteforharmoniousliving.com)
My goal is to show you and your family that there are options, there is hope and illness in all of it’s forms, mind, body and spirit, are more then just manageable. Your reality really is in your hands and as each person recognizes this, the implications on the world is profound healing and peace.
WE here at HHDS and at the Institute For Harmonious Living are here for you to begin your own Self Care Healing journey. If I can do it anyone can! Are you ready?
