"A thought held long enough and repeated enough becomes a belief. The belief then becomes biology. Beliefs are energetic forces that create the physical basis for our individual lives and our health." - Christiane Northrup, M.D.
A little while ago I had an idea. Within moments of accepting the idea I was visited by a messenger telling me to do it! I, of course, procrastinated. I have been feeling extraordinarily powerless in my life lately. It makes my throat ache to write that, but it is the truth. So I haven't started even though I know it is exactly what I need to do. This week my body has rebelled by giving me a long, lingering case of hives and an IBS attack.
I took this photograph in a cathedral (where I wasn't supposed to take pictures!) These steps are made of stone and you can see how many people have walked up them by how worn they are. It's actually quite difficult to climb them now without slipping a little. The interesting thing about these steps is that if you move just a little bit to the right, the step is unworn and quite a lot easier to climb. I watched for a little while, and everyone still climbed up the worn bits. It's the path that seems the easiest, and the path that everyone else has taken, so it's where they all go.
Well, I have decided to step to the right. Inspired by this, and this, and a scene from this and the experiment behind this, and by this and these, I have come up with a way of returning to myself.
Starting at the bottom - closest to the earth - I am going to begin to climb back into myself one piece at a time. Today I am going to meet my feet! Today I will have a bath, give them a wash, and then spend a few moments listening to them. I haven't really even thought about them for a long, long time. Then, once I hear what they have to say I will write something on them. I am going to reconnect myself to them and to the earth they connect me to. If it works with water crystals, then I am sure it's worth a try on my nearly-all-water body. I'll let you know how it goes.
"Imagine yourself whole, healed, and deeply in touch with the wisdom of your female body. How do you feel? What do you know in your bones? Nothing is more exciting than knowing that our bodies and our feelings are a clear, open pathway toward our destinies." - Christiane Northrup, M.D.
Starting today I am going to work towards getting all of me on the same side.
P.S. I have just found this. Oh, I would do anything to be there. Wow. How can I make it happen?
