Daily Nugget #62

omg. what’s happening to me!

 

have you ever read that kids book ‘Parts’ by Tedd Arnold?

in it, a young boy is freaking out because

his teeth start to fall out

he finds ‘fuzz’ in his belly button

and

he thinks his brain is coming out of his nose when he pulls out a booger.

 

he totally freaks out.

 

that’s kind of how i am feeling as of late.

my body is doing new things.

my mind?

don’t even get me started.

 

it feels like my cells are vibrating

and

occupying a new place in time.

and time?

geesh!

it’s as slippery as ever.

this week, it beat me

so far.

I FEEL SO BEHIND!

but does it really matter?

am i ‘getting done’ what really needs to be done?

yea. i guess.

however

time seems to be winning.

what should take minutes

turns into hours!

how?

we are starting to move more freely thru it.

yes

we can MOVE in time.

tho not always consciously

yet.

 

i realized this week that

stress + worry = a long, slow, painful death.

 

that stress shit will kill you.

i’m noticing it more and more.

because

i’m paying attention more and more.

and

understanding my body

more and more.

 

and

 

i’m noticing HOW MUCH

my thoughts

my emotions

my overall state of being

affect my body.

 

now take a breath.

a nice long, deep breath.

and

settle in to you body.

how does it feel?

where do you feel tight

or

constricted?

breathe in to those places.

 

now

think about something stressful

or

a disturbing interaction with someone.

 

do you feel it in your body?

where?

this is where the long slow painful death begins.

 

we constrict our bodies in response to stress or worry.

the constriction tends to wrap around one of our organs.

in health

our organs have a nice little space that they occupy.

nothing is gripping or wrapping around them.

then

in comes the stress/worry.

all of a sudden

an organ is strangled.

it starts to have tissue attached to it

(or in some cases, glued to it)

that wasn’t before.

 

this then starts to slowly pull our entire physicalness

out of alignment.

 

does that make sense?

can we, as a culture,

learn to chill the F out?

and

soften and relax our minds and emotions

so

our bodies can do what they do

and

heal.

 

hmmm.

i’ve always felt that we are SO powerful.

we are powerful in our health

and

powerful in our dis-ease

(meaning: the power of our thoughts/emotions

& beliefs can make us sick).

 

where to start?

always come back to the breath.

start there.

breathe and notice.

breathe and notice.

start to feel your way around

your being

and

make some gentle adjustments.

relax your physicalness.

relax you mind.

be at peace in your emotions.

Chill the F out.

 

it just feels better that way.

 

ps. i hear that tea helps with that. hint hint.
