So after several years, I've finally found the courage to blog. Ellie, our foot reflexologist, has been writing our Foot Prints blog and it's time to Shine On.
As we're nearing the election and all related talks and opinions about it, I am stunned that the focus seems to be on negative things, almost all the time! I'm not sure if I'm the only one who noticed that, but wouldn't you agree that when you put your attention on one particular thing it becomes "bigger"; it is as if it is being fed by our attention?
I see this some times with my patients and they struggle to increase their field of perception and to notice all that is working or in harmony. When that happens, my wish is to become like a flashlight to them, so that they can use me to cast a light on the good things and appreciate the innate wisdom of the body. By sending good thoughts to the process of healing, and not getting angry at the body, we're re-activating flow and harmony. Everything in nature follows rhythms and cycle, and so it is with our bodies.
And as far as the elections are concerned, I can only think of St. Francis....make me an instrument of peace. Where there is hatred, let me show love....where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
