I wrote this blog before I frolicked in nature, before I had a powerful energy healing and before I moved to a new house-sit that has a beautiful garden, a pool and 2 cats (some of my favourite things!). And once all of the above took place, a nasty and determined little virus that I'd been struck down with for well over a week, left my system! Self-care: e.g. surrounding the self with nature and a nurturing environment, soaking our bodies in water, and receiving energy healing, are, in my experience, some of the very best things a sensitive soul can do to restore peace and well-being into their lives. Below is the blog I wrote last week, just as I was climbing out of that illness rut. Some good insights took place in the midst of being sick, which I'm offering up in this blog. Hoping these can be of benefit to those of you who read it too.
My perfect place for healing... with cats, pools and gardens...xxx
As I wrote in a post late last week, I can't believe 'I'm still standing' after all that's happened in the last 6 months of 2017. And right now I'm being challenged more than ever having come down with a stomach bug, that's turned into a cold, that's turned into a stomach bug and a cold, that's turned back into a cold.
This has been happening for over a week now, and I've had to cancel most of my business dealings and decline important social engagements in order to rest and recover. I also have my dear sister and her 11th month old daughter (my first niece!) visiting from the UK. Due to being sick, I was unable to have our special day together (planning this for months!), and to top that off, the special present I had custom made and delivered from Byron Bay for my beautiful niece, came today... in the wrong colours! Aaah!!! So yes, it's been tough, exhausting, and frustrating... and I thank you for letting me have this little rant-fest.
However in doing so, I'd like to also inject some positives into this situation. First of all, my challenges confirm that the Universe is testing me and really pushing me to see what I'm made of. Especially when times get tough.
How do I know this?
Well, you may have seen a post a couple of months ago, that I had a revelation when I read one of Einstein's quotes. And this was regarding the decision on whether or not to view this Universe as being 'friendly' or 'hostile'. Since then, I have been choosing friendly. Again and again. When a challenge has come my way. And even though I get in the shits, and down in the dumps when shit goes wrong, I'm able to rise out of it quickly, by changing my perspective, and asking myself:
- How is the Universe helping me in this situation?
- What do I need to learn?
- What is not serving me?
- What do I need to let go of?
- What do I need to change?
And boy, the learnings and revelations are coming in hard and fast. And showing me the answers to the above questions... clearly!
In being sick, I've also had time to slow down, reflect, receive insights, search for inspiration and really start listening. To myself. To my inner-guidance. Today is the quietest day of them all, and I am feeling more inspired and more productive than I have in a long time! Even though I'm sick. It's ok. I'm sitting in it. Being with it. And treating it as OK. It is what it is. I'm surrendering. Letting it pass through me. And actually honouring it. Thanking it. For without it, I would have kept on going, the way I was going. Hard and fast. And not serving my highest good. Therefore, not serving the highest good of others. Whether that be my immediate family, friends or my sensitive soul clients and tribe.
So anyways, I'm gonna lap up this quiet, reflective day off, and enjoy planting my feet on the earth, playing amongst the trees, and absorbing the electric energy of this Thursday afternoon.
