If you, like me, live with chronic pain, you might want to ask yourself – what am I avoiding?
- Is there someone you are avoiding seeing or speaking to?
- Are you putting off an important health care appointment?
- Where in your life are you procrastinating?
- Are you pushing yourself and avoiding rest?
- What is the last thing you are willing to pay attention to?
OK, confession time. As I sit here at my desk, gazing out at the humming birds zipping in and out of my garden this morning, I am looking at the piles all around me on my desk and, once again, putting off (procrastinating!) doing my filing and organizing.
I know that the stuff is taking up space in my consciousness.
I know that it will only take a few minutes to clear it up.
I know that I will feel so proud of myself when I do it!
I know that putting it off is not serving me.
And still I procrastinate!
What in your life are you avoiding?
Might your willingness to stop avoiding something – anything – in your life help heal your chronic pain?
Will you join me in making a commitment right now to choosing one thing you will pay attention to today that will relieve some of the pressure you put on yourself?
Let’s do this!
Not put it off one more minute, one more hour, one more day…
I will post a photo of my clean and organized desk on my Facebook page by the end of the day today. Here’s the link:
Besides, I’d love to have you join me on my Facebook page where I post photos, share the books I’m reading and generally rant about what is up for me that doesn’t fit in with this weekly lesson.
I keep having urges to write essays or articles or whatever and feel that this space is sacred space where we meet each week to practice, inspire and connect with one another for healing and learning.
Please share with me (on the Facebook page) what you are choose to focus on today to release some energy and relieve pain. And join us on Monday at Synergy for Meditation & Tapping for Pain Relief.
