The important message I learned being sick.

I was planning on uploading a favorites for spring post…but yesterday I came down with a head-cold and have spent a lot of today home, being silent with myself. I’ve spent a lot of today listening to my body, and not crowding it with unnecessary thoughts that were being brought up questioning going away from the “routine” I know. I took this time to slow down my mind, which I thought I was already doing, but something about being ill MAKES you slowwww down. I realized these things: my body wanted a lot of fruit and water, closing my eyes felt so good, I didn’t feel compelled to talk all that much-I really preferred being silent, breathing slowly felt right, and that everything we feel throughout the day really matters.

I went to my usual Tuesday yoga class and something really struck me. I heard my instructors words at the beginning of class with an incredibly powerful force, everything she said clicked without effort. It really became clear to me that for most of the day information and facts are being spat at me, and my by the time I get to yoga my brain is over receiving all this “stuff”. But today, I was open and I was so prepared for receiving. After my yoga class, I realized that today I was listening to my heart and my body much more than my mind, which is usually buzzing and my main source for intuition. Being sick makes me remember that the body really is the wisest source of intuition, and it reminds me that every inch of our being is connected, and that this body really is our only home.

Until next time,

Claire
