As the year winds down we are experiencing great amounts of opportunity to embrace who we are and the life we live, to its fullest potential. The movement of last week was like trying to swim through honey...long broad strokes and yet, the quiet, more immediate focus of intention with the letting go of the "trunk monkey" mind. I am becoming so much more aware every day that how I take care of my body and mind contribute greatly to the infinite extent of my spiritual expansion. Transformation comes in many forms and always touches every aspect of the being. It reaches the deepest emotions available at the time, it moves the physical body through sickness, strengthening and healing, moves clarity into the mind, and supports spirit in the process of embracing your truest self without human identity. I cannot do this without support on each of those levels. This is one of the most important things I can offer to you, especially at this time of year and this time of movement and ascension. Enjoy and check out these incredible offerings.
The emotional and mental bodies are often intertwined in the physical healing process. This comes from the belief that disease is broken down into Dis-Ease in the body created from a lack of emotional movement. The best way to promote movement and fluidity in the body is making your body feel good. I highly recommend massage to get the circulation and flow into your body. I also recommend chiropractic to open the flow of blood and oxygen as well as to shift the body back into alignment.
I see Shanna Arno for massage over a Natural Body Works Massage & Wellness Center. She helps to focus the physical energy of my body in a way that heals and promotes my highest physical being. Over the years that I have been with her I am always amazed at her gentle healing touch, her vast knowledge of the body and the way she holds dear space for me to release my body and heart safely.
I see Karis Cooper at Cooper Chiropractic Center for Health and Wellness who does a beautiful job of aligning my body and keeping me healthy by recommending practices at home to continue the healing. She is an intuitive woman who holds you with a sincere heart and is always looking for the best way to create healing space for your body, mind and spirit.
I see Holly Berland with Olalani Skin Health to support my skin being healthy and beautiful. This is a cleansing process for understanding all of the ways that the things I experience effect my skin. This also promotes the movement of impurities from my body to clear the path for a subtle yet profound healing. Within each session she delivers me to a place that opens my heart and body. I often feel as if I am on a vacation healing all aspects of my being while she cleanses my skin and brightens my face.
The spiritual body is directly tapped into all the other levels of existence. It is also something that is constantly moving within us and around us. There are physical releases that support emotional, mental and spiritual growth. Emotions themselves are a part of Energy-IN-Motion. Thoughts create reality and so our conscious choices are a direct result of all that we have thought or spoken and believed to be true. It is often coming out of the conditioning of growing up human that the journey back to spirit is about. Here are a few recommendations I have for this kind of growth work.
I love retreats. That is a time that I can directly go inside without the distraction of life every other moment. It opens me up to the brilliance of evolution and change while having time to integrate it. I recommend Bill and Patricia Clum for the multi-faceted spiritual healing experiences I have had in the short time of knowing them. I experience them as providing a container for the deepest healing you are able to come to, opening up pathways along your journey that open your existence, and for me, most importantly bring my awareness of heart to be embodied by my whole self.
Learning and being able to absorb spiritual practices are incredibly serving when it comes to the tough times. We all need support and to be seen by the light when things become dark. There is also a space of beauty and surrender when being held in a safe place to allow the movement of body, mind and spirit. I can’t tell you how much Stacey Lynn has offered me with regard to all of this and so much more. I am currently working with her to forward my heart and soul, and so grateful for the work she does to guide and love me in all space and time without judgement. I am forever changed from my experience with her.
I am learning about my body and soul, and a lovely way to connect to that all is through acupuncture. Acupuncture has allowed me to discover new ways to see the stagnation, and lack but also the strength and abundance moving through my being. Using Traditional Chinese Medicine, Julie McCoy-Cox is a brilliant healer who has sent me to many places within my own body and heart to heal and promote movement. She is a highly intuitive healer that knows the energy of being of the earth and stars.
