A year of worldwide changes truly gives one much to reflect upon. As you look back on 2020, what themes or patterns were most prevalent for you? Fear, conflict, and isolation? Or were you able to navigate the stillness and go within creating healing, awareness, and presence?
As 2020 began, I had received the guidance to focus within. I chose to release my commitments and tend to my healing: physically, emotionally, and energetically. This choice was indeed a blessing, and when the pandemic hit, I felt as if the world had joined me in stillness.
My oldest physical symptom going back to childhood is an achy left eye and top of the head and nausea. I learned later in life that this reaction is termed: migraine. Lights, screens, and motion have been utterly painful to manage when experiencing a migraine, which lasts for a three-day cycle. As computers became prevalent in my college years and working days, screen time would physically take its toll on me.
Over the past 20 years, practically everything requires the use of a screen: social media, zoom meetings, educational videos, email, even text messages. With screens as my nemesis several days each month, balancing my exposure has become an endless palaver. I am grateful that I had chosen to focus within, pull back from screens, and embrace the stillness.
I embarked upon the many year journeys of low dose chelation utilizing the Andy Cutler Protocol, allowed time for convalescence, integrated homeopathic support, regularly grounded in nature, and even spent four weeks in a place without internet or cell service. It took time to eventually let everything drop and turn my focus towards myself and my healing. I worked on bringing congruence to my daily habits. This year truly felt like a journey to wholeness. While the journey lasts a lifetime, I think I made progress and learned some key lessons.
- How to live from choice
- Being present, even in adversity
Making choices regarding my time online/on screens has taken discernment. Throughout 2020 I maintained my education with GAPS Practitioners and selected NANP webinars. I have navigated interesting reactions and unraveling through my healing process. My body is my friend and offers feedback and tracks progress along the journey. I am a work in progress, but I am moving toward returning to the role of supporting others and sharing my knowledge, experience, and wisdom. I choose to release any expectations of roles that have taken much of my energy and focus in the past. I will be present within each role and honor my choice to embrace my inner truth and wisdom, allow my creative self to merge with the stoic, logical side, and strengthen my intuition.
Throughout 2020 I choose to honor the lunar cycles, linking to a regular rhythm of this world and opening to a deeper understanding of the energetic influences of the greater world upon us. With all intentions chosen, I honor the wise words of HeatherAsh Amara: “As long as it takes.”
In the northern hemisphere, we are entering the winter solstice, and this is a time to step out of the darkness and into the light. Release issues of the past year and set your intentions for this coming year. Know that the path ahead is never straight. There are always ups and downs, and sometimes you even go backward. Step into the flow but keep your intention in your sights. The destination is merely your north star - the journey is what matters.
“Know that you are blessed and live your life within that knowing.”
