This lent thing seems to be going on forever.
Nothing to do with any food cravings it just seems much longer than 2 weeks ago that I was fasting.
I knew that 6 weeks would be a good amount of time for me to make an impact on my health, I reckon it took me about 2 months the last time when I healed from chronic fatigue.
I had known for years I did not feel right, but it was not till I got on a bus in Australia and slept for 14 solid hours and still did not want to get off, that there was something definitely wrong with me.
I was on my own then, for the first time in my life. Completely able to sleep, nothing and no one I had to get up for.
I dragged myself off the bus and realised I needed to do something.
When I was in Nepal I had met a guy who taught my Ashtanga yoga. I had never been a yoga fan, slow, sore and boring, did not get it at all, until I met this guy, saw his body and energy, and then tried this power experience out for myself.
He was getting something out of it that I had never had. As I watched him breathe deeply, totally away somewhere else, I knew I wanted a bit of that.
I flew from Oz to Canada and my friend there and I did 2 hours Ashtanga everyday for 2 months.
At first I hated it. 6am my body is not at its most flexible so I struggled along side her (she was experienced and good and I was shit) everyday just because I had committed to it, and at some level knew it would help.
So I dragged my exhausted, stiff body out of bed every morning and hated the first 20 minutes will I warmed up.
It was no overnight cure. I became aware that I was not thinking about bed at 9pm. I felt more awake, more alive, my energy levels and purpose became stronger, I was healing. I was ecstatic.
So Lent is about this for me. I have not been doing that much yoga, or anthing like it because I have felt so tired. Am I lazy, getting old or what? The fact is when you feel alive you want to exercise, so it's the chicken and egg thing. I have been doing a lot of walking and back in Argyll I have been on the Vibrogym and in the FIR sauna, this is awesome for recovery.
The sun is out the nights are getting lighter and time out in Nature all goes to healing.
Emotional releasing happens daily, working privately with my clients really helps me too, which is a huge win win.
You cannot help someone else release without releasing yourcellf.
Ellie and I had a Bling it on Workshop last night where I teach how to let go of judging and perhaps hating the body.
How we waste a lot of our precious creating time thinking wishing things were different.
How to let go of fatigue and stressful thoughts.
How to affirm exactly what we want.
I am open to high energy, vibrancy and love.
I allow myself to let go of all judgement of the body and what it is doing.
I am happy, health and free.
Here is to your health and happiness too.
