I could talk about the importance of skeletal alignment, improved posture and improved proprioception but instead I’m going to go off the beaten path and refer to the correlation between mind, body and spirit, and how the physical manifests the spirit and what the spirit needs will manifest physically. Into the esoteric I go…
While I’ve been trying to balance my muscles to work symmetrically, it seems my life mirrors just that. Things have been a bit off balance since my surgery as well. It should be no surprise when you come to realize how the physical reflects the spirit. In our lives we fall into patterns and routines, and during my recovery, hard as I try I can’t seem to keep my routine while trying to restore balance and stability into my body and my life.
There seems to be no routine and maybe that is because what I’m going through is not part of my routine or will never be and I’m just passing through.
Some days are easier than others and some just don’t make sense at all. I’m getting through it though
Sometimes things have a flow and then for no reason at all everything seems all over the place. At times I feel like I’m going nowhere, other times I feel like a turtle moving ever so slowly and sometimes I don’t know where this going at all. I try to listen to the messages the universe is sending me and continue on the healing path. It’s amazing the things you can discover here. Just the change in perspective from my pre-surgical days has led me here. My routine has changed the things I see and the way I see them, the things I do, the people I meet and the places I go. I remind myself that like Tai Chi, take one step at a time, take it slow, remember to breathe, where you are is where you are and therein you are in the flow…
You will be guided by your recovery. Listen closely…As strength is restored, balance is recovered and life is uncovered.
DO WHAT YOU CAN WHILE YOU CAN’T DO!
