I’m feeling torn (more each day) between wanting to share useful tips, minor successes and new research in this space to help others along the bewildering recovery path and yet, increasingly, wanting to shed the whole mindset of ‘recovery’ and ‘illness’, of ‘symptoms’ and ‘disease’. This topic is leaden, innocuous and persistent, these very mindsets hold us in a place of considering ourselves as having ‘something go wrong’ as soon as we use that old terminology (and if you don't know what I mean, just try visiting a doctor without, at some level, noticing that you somehow feel worse for having had to label what you are experiencing). At the same time, I am deeply uncomfortable with the mindset of pretending that there is no pain, no physical challenge, when the experience of these can be extremely invasive, alarming and quite impossible to ignore. Instead, though I advocate that we talk ever-more openly about all the practical steps that we can take to support our bodies through these things (as I do in this space), which is how we go to meet the reality that we intend to manifest for ourselves, I believe that this is the most potent of all when partnered with a deeper knowing that all is well and everything is happening for our highest evolution. If we can just know - and I mean deeply know - that everything is alright rather than falling into catastrophic thinking and 'illness' mentality; if we can allow that, through these transitions in our cells, we are escorting in something extremely new and marvellous, something to get excited then I just know transformation can be realised as a living and breathing reality in our experience.
The sun is having one of her moments again...a G4 geomagnetic storm yesterday and predicted again, possibly to G5 level, today following a number of very strong flares and earth-directed CMEs. At these times, I've notice in myself, and in conversation with others, that some of these challenges might crop up in your daily experience....but … Continue reading Scrambled into clarity
The same should apply to us all really; if you get to know your triggers in life you can smartly side-step them or at least minimise the impact they have on you. If fibromyalgia is part of your picture, you very likely have multiple triggers that can set off a flare-up of symptoms. So my … Continue reading Know your triggers
