Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
Funny how sometimes it all converges. Perhaps a full moon, the solstice and time with great people has helped me too, but all seems to be reminding me of the interconnectedness of all things, how nothing we do is an act alone.
There's two major things to me. I've shared with a few people Jon Symes' words from the TEDx Holyhead talks I was at recently and how he was living amongst a tribe of people who made their decisions based on how they would affect 7 generations on from them. I'm trying to start thinking about perhaps 1 generation on from me - 7 feels a big leap and not sure my tiny brain is quite ready for it just yet. But it's certainly making me think. The whole talk is here if you'd like to listen.
The other is a quote, which sits well side by side that I received on a newsletter forwarded from a friend today. It's by Albert Einstein and I hope you take a moment to read and digest it:
A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
We are never alone, in what we do, how we act and what we create. And yet it can so easily feel it. I wonder if when we're off centre that discomfort is a sign we need to re-balance somehow. We can all do this in different ways and simple ones you can do to help yourself would be:
For me, I work with my homeopath on a regular basis - it gives me a safe space to explore, to be and to continue to develop. It's a time I find valuable as I progress through the challenges, joys and times that living here inevitably brings along. Parenting, working, being and discovering - I find I'm able to work with things which may have niggled for years in that space, and I would also say it's helped to make me happier in my work, in my life in general as well as healthier.
Other therapies - EFT, mindfulness, shiatsu, acupuncture, bowen therapy, using art, making music and many others may also have a re-balancing effect - as may a good dose of the 'best medicine' - laughter.
With love at this full moon and, here in the north, the summer solstice,
May we marvel at the interconnectedness of it all,
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
