How do we remember each other?
By sight? When the light is just so? By the sound of rain?
By a touch, or maybe by a way that we move?
Or does some scent--our strongest and most immediate route--lead us to memory?
I remember my clients most easily through these senses: I sense visually and energetically the way they carry themselves, and I sense though touch.
....Ahh, yes this beloved being has moved from that way of living to this way.
How do we remember our own "best selves"?
Face-to-face contact super-reinforces our memories, which is why it's so good to surround ourselves with people who uplift us, who bring out "our best selves" as Judith Aston says.
Some of the ways we are reminded of our best selves, while not pleasant, are still good for us.
For instance, I've committed to wearing "unloading" braces for 10 weeks to help correct the muscle imbalances in my legs and relieve arthritis pain in my knees.
And let me tell you, it hurts my vanity. But, wow! my legs are stronger and my knees are happier!
But even more impressive to me. Once I stopped to pay attention (thanks in part to Peppermint essential oil!): After one week of image-battering, brace-wearing I'm discovering not only am I in less pain, but the extra support that my lower body, especially my joints, can give me, the more focused my mind is....here I am, writing a blog that I could not focus on before!
I simply didn't have the grounding in my physical body to propel my mind toward the work of putting a newsletter together, even though I missed you very much!
So what in your life would it be good to be reminded of?
Who can help you get there?
Maybe I can help, because....
I want your body (and the whole of you)...to feel fine!
