I’ve had a most wonderful journey with my body lately. It has been teaching me so much. (I’m doing great now.) Back in July I injured my back from having a slightly incorrect posture in sitting meditation. It’s the first and only real injury I can remember. I took a couple of falls when I was a kid – stitches above my eye and on the back of my head – I remember blood and other fun stuff, but I don’t remember much suffering over it. I’m quite certain my parents suffered more of those injuries than I did.
When I was a kid I had my tonsils out and I had my wisdom teeth pulled. Since then, I’ve not had any significant illness and no injuries of any significance that I can recall.
So, my experience with my back has taught me a lot. I had excruciating pain for a couple of weeks. Then I had very intense pain for another couple of weeks. I was so glad when the pain went from excruciating to very intense. What a relief!
In the meantime, many things have come into focus for me about my body and I’ll probably share some of them here in my daily Spiritual Espresso.
Our bodies are a gift to us from the elemental kingdom. They are a very precious gift for our learning. We are not a body, but we have one for our care and keeping – and the most significant impact on our body is our thoughts.
Medical doctors tell us that the main cause of aging, degeneration and disease is inflammation. What causes inflammation? Well, we can say that the main cause is our diet, but I don’t believe that. It’s how we hold things in our mind.
I remember years ago someone wrote a post on Facebook that said:
“Does anyone know a really good anti-inflammatory.”
My immediate response was:
Forgiveness is the ultimate anti-inflammatory and it is deeply healing to our bodies, our finances and our relationships. I’ve seen it work and I’ve felt it too! You can get my free forgiveness workshop on the home page of JenniferHadley.com – it’s a great place to start releasing the blocks and opening the flow – won’t you please share with someone now and open the flow of good for yourself?
