The human body is evolving faster then ever, in alignment with our true potential opening up like never before in the history of our evolution. Our reactions are becoming more energetic and instantaneous; thus less ingrained or habitual as we become lighter and more evolved. It has to be expected, surely, that what might once have felt like hard and fast limitations (perhaps lifelong conditions or allergies) serve more as wayposts and temporary obstacles waiting for us to practice our higher consciousness on them, all the better to speed our own evolution.
Where there is no joy left, we can be sure we have excluded the right-brained perspective. When all we can see is the hard wall of the corridor we are apparently walking and the printed signs and arrows on those wall saying we "must" go this way or that, we can be sure we have lost the over-view and its an imprisonment of sorts. "Down there' we can only go one or maybe two or three routes (some of its junctions are confusing thus they seem to offer choices...) but we have lost the very point of the journey if we no longer experience the very joy that makes us want to be here in a human body. So if diagnosis only brings limitation and fear, we need to make sure we don't lose sight of that other perspective...the broader perspective that allows us to see the whole point.
Receiving a set of black and white test results can make us feel very different about our health challenges; almost in a split second, like there is now something actively "wrong" with us or broken and this is one of the major pitfalls of the allopathic route. When we lock ourselves down into the perspectives of what is thought to be known or proven by “science” we shut off many avenues; likewise, when we remain open to looking at old data through new eyes, our own experiential eyes (not the inherited beliefs that are passed onto us by another) moment to moment, we leave the door wide open for a new set of circumstances to emerge, breaking the mould of any diagnostic paradigm that might otherwise have seemed so cut-and-dry, not to mention doom-laden. We might even get to turn that diagnosis around into the best news, instead of the worst (yes, I've seen this happen) leading to a very different outcome. Remember always, it's not the diagnosis that matters but the meaning that we give to it!
How do you reconcile a desire to "tread softly on the earth" and all your particular health requirements and preferences with the unpredictability and other variables of travel when you go on holiday? And what is a holiday or vacation meant to do for you? La Vimea is a unique "biotique" hotel in the South Tyrol that helped me to find out what was possible to achieve now and (hopefully) even more easily in the future...
A woman's life was never meant to be a linear progression from cradle to grave...she is uniquely designed to undergo complete METAMORPHOSIS in the middle. When we overlook that long-buried fact, things can get horrendously muddled in a woman's life and, above all, her health. From just surviving menopause to THRIVING through menopause; how to generate the necessary inner fire and make the transition conscious and graceful instead of precariously accidental and fraught with challenges.
If you have a vata dominance, how do you ground that airy, high-spirited, out-there, mercurial constitution long enough to find your way about in a physical body...and then stay there in a way that feels comfortable and sustainable? Here's what I've learned so far:
Why do some highly spiritual, thoroughly blissed-out, appreciative and mindful people still struggle so with chronic health challenges? I have my own pet theory...and, using it, am already enjoying the benefits of being so much more grounded in my body than I can ever recall before. Enjoying the best of both worlds: my thoughts on using an Ayurvedic perspective to diet to bring yourself joyously back into the body!
