First it was my back playing up and I had to lie down every so often, not able to go for my walks that I love or do, even simple things on an everyday basis got to be so difficult and once I cleared that ....( well that's what we think we do when we go for a healing ) it moved up into my chest and my throat, the bugger !!!!!
My breathing has become so shallow and tight yet when I tap into my medicine ( a Shamanic term of connecting to your core ) and breath from that space I can breath easily
Interesting to observe as I try to listen to the message my body is telling me ....... Now I can panic and I have been at times especially when it has been difficult to breath this past week, but I know there is a blessing in this for me and to keep putting a band-aid on it and not going to the core of the issue will manifest somewhere else in my body until I get it !!!!
In western medicine we fix the problem and go on our way, which I have done on may occasions and I don't condemn the medical establishment as it has done some wonderful things ...but what is at the core of what were fixing ???
What really is the problem and what is the bodies message when we get sick?......for me as much as I soldier on, I know what I need to do is go back to the Shamanic and Art Therapy teachings, go within and ask the questions?
In this form?
In my psyche (mind, body, heart, soul/spirit)
At this time in my life journey of the soul ?
How can I understand it and grow from it ?
So even though I do this work for others I too keep going deeper into myself to learn a grow
