N A M A S T E
Can you believe we are more than halfway into 2018 already? It’s never too late to be who you were destined to be, embrace everyday as life offers you a fresh new start! It’s amazing the things you will learn about yourself when you learn to give yourself time. Long were the days when I constantly was in a rush to complete tasks and always felt like I was missing out on things. I use to overly consume myself with being in the presence of others, never fully allowing myself to develop into who I truly am. One thing I have learned in life is that time is precious and cannot be bought, so be aware of how you invest it! I encourage you to give yourself time. Good things are coming, just hold on to your dreams and forgive and let go!
My Latest Read...
I have recently read a book by Louise Hay, a.k.a the affirmation queen that has enlightened my perception on life. The book entitled "You Can Heal Your Life," stumbled across my path and was an amazing read. I have learned we all have more power than we think we do. We just need to learn to channel that power something worth wild! Louise referred to a number of underlying issues that predispose the body to a number of diseases, here are a few that I found interesting and or could have been applied to myself and the people around me.
Being hypocritical. Fear of money and of the future
(I suffered from a very bad case of sciatica in my mid 20's that allowed me to be immobile for a few days. At the time I was extremely worried about a lot of financial things, as well as how it would impact my future.)
Can’t bite into anything anymore. Root beliefs being destroyed.
(As an adult I have experienced many root canals, as it makes sense that I was compromising my root beliefs and settling for things I didn't believe in.)
Rage at being left out.
(I have already explained how I always felt unsettled and as if I were missing out on things in life. This has definitely affected my thyroids ability to regulate itself in the past. To find more about thyroid-related issues, click here.)
Allowing confusion to reign. Giving power to outside influences. Rejection of the feminine processes.
(Upon my monthly cycle sometimes I feel so out of whack with my feelings and overwhelmed with my emotions. My ability to make rational decisions not based on my mood sometimes goes out the window and I honestly feel like im in state of confusion! This makes so much sense to me, as I use to be a people please allowing the diction of others to control how I felt about myself.)
Fear. Not trusting the process of life. Guilt.
(I use to abuse substances like weed and alcohol to help me sleep at night. It really makes sense because I never understood that I was not able to trust the process of life and allow it to manifest. I consistently attracted negative things and had bad thoughts that ultimately lead me to be depressed, sleep deprived and unhappy.)
Mass belief in sexual guilt and the need for punishment. Public shame. Belief in a punishing God. Rejection of the genitals.
(One of my close friends was diagnosed with the disease and it makes sense as she was having a difficult completely pulling closer to God. We both realize it was God's way of getting her to change her old ways, and her sexual guilt manifesting itself.)
Longstanding emotional problems. Lack of joy. Hardening of the heart. Belief in strain and stress.
(My grandmother has had a triple heart bypass surgery and has dealt with a lot of longstanding emotional issues that I believe has to lead to this. She worries a lot and has not forgiven things of the past. Dying from a broken heart, or developing one due to loss occur.)
Running from the self. Fear. Not knowing how to love self.
Being a single mother with a lot of quilt, and underlying issues made me resort to alcohol abuse and smoking. I was unable to understand who I was and love my self. I was unable to cope with the world and looked for something stronger to take me away from my pain. I needed something to help me cope with my reality in return the things I was unable to control.
Smother love. Inability to breathe for one’s self. Feeling stifled. Suppressed crying.
After being diagnosed with thyroid issues (where I developed a rage of being left out) in my mid-20s I also developed asthma. I have since outgrown that issues as I have come to terms with life and not stifled my emotions. A good cry is needed every now and then to help heal the body and clear the mind. I felt so dependent on the love from others to truly make me happy and ran from figuring how to love myself more.
Incomplete releasing. Holding on to the garbage of the past. Guilt over the past. Sometimes stinginess.
Being pregnant and not consuming enough water lead me to past constipation issues but looking deeper I had a lot of guilt at the time. Currently, my grandmother is dealing with constipation issues and I know that she has a hard time coming to terms with her life at the present time.
Standing in a situation you hate. Discouragement. Feeling over-worked and overburdened.
As a child I remember seeing my mother with bluish-purple veins distended from the dorsal part of her thighs, I now know that my mom was unhappy. She felt overworked and burdened with life.
