Tea and Spirituality…

I don’t get sick, I get symptomatic. I state this for two reasons; One its mostly true I rarely get colds and or viruses, and if I do they manifest themselves as aches and being tired. When I do get “normal symptoms” I just tell people I’m symptomatic and never name it. Like stray cats if you give a cold a name you own it!

With that said this past weekend I was exhibiting the aforementioned aches and tired feelings, along with a symptomatic cough… I found the best way to deal with these annoying occurrences is to allow them to have their way! So I curtailed most of my weekend plans and rested. I consumed large amounts of peppermint tea and read, listened to and watched spiritually influenced books and programs. The result being a body,mind and spirit well taken care of and ready to take on the rigors of another crazy week!

The reason I’ve shared this with you is, I spent way too many of these episodes fighting them – Instead of giving in to them and allowing them to teach me to SLOW down! I hope you can see by choosing to give yourself a little tea and spirituality, you’ll not only feel better physically but spiritually. That my friends is a total recovery!

Namaste,

Clear Thinking…

Wow I’ve been sidelined with a bit of a sinus issue and a mild ear infection… I can’t believe how a minor illness can slow you down. As a former nurse I’m well aware of the body’s healing processes taking precedence over my training regime. What throws me for a loop is how my mental capacity becomes muddled. Clear thinking requires – A lot of Thought!  There is effort involved even toward simple tasks!

The lack of clear thinking may be due impart to the cold medicines, the clogged sinuses and or the constant ringing in my right ear. Then again maybe it’s the body’s way of saying just shut up and rest…

Which is what Im going to do – I think?

Short and Sweet…

Never discount taking five minutes to sit and meditate or just to ponder… Get off the fast track to no where and sit – Just sit. Sounds like an idle waste of time doesn’t it? Think of it as a mini vacation in the craziness of the day. Time to regroup, breathe and take note of what you’re feeling.  It always amazes me how we go throughout the day without recognizing our moods or emotions. We “get through” the day like some sort of robot. Doing things often times without being aware. I’m sure you’ve experienced the phenomena when you’re driving somewhere and then seem to come out of your programed coma look up and go “Yikes, how did I get here?” It was as if the car was on auto pilot and you fell asleep. As sad as this sounds we do it all the time. By taking time to sit, pray, meditate or just being gratefully aware that we are alive and we are blessed! This moment can be Short and Sweet… Come back to life! Begin to see with all your senses…

Life with all the heartaches, challenges and difficulties is beautiful! Take a minute to reawaken and get to living…
