Optimal health, well being and consciousness - that's what we are all seeking right? We want to feel good in every facet of our lives. So often we block ourselves from achieving the health we desire. It isn't purely that we decided to splurge on ice cream one night, skipped spin class, or any other physical manifestation of our disappointment with our health that we can find. It comes from our consciousness. Here's my list of major blocks that we create preventing us from achieving the goal of optimal health, well being and consciousness.
You're STRESSED to the max
When your body is in a continuous state of stress, your organ systems are operating in a state of stress. That means, your body is in the fight or flight reactive state for a prolonged period of time. In this state, the central nervous system is on high alert and many of the organ systems that are non-essential for a survival situation go quiet. The more active your brain in this state of being, the less opportunity for normal organ function and hence decreased capacity for your body to achieve any form of a state of well being. We have to find a way to get ourselves into a state of repair, restoration and rejuvenation.
You are NOT #1 in your life
We all have families, pets, jobs, aging parents, friends, co-workers, etc. But if these people are taking priority in our life over our own health, how can we expect to feel good inside and out? It is a well known fact that we can only offer what have. When we prioritize ourselves, we have much much more to share. I've worked with a lot of young mommas that struggled with giving themselves 5 minutes a day, just 5 minutes that's dedicated to no one but them. Once they achieve that time, they find nourishment and balance and want more! No one says, we came into this life to be on high speed doing everything for everyone and missing the experience of being ourselves with these people we love and who love us, so much!
You're missing the PRESENT MOMENT
Life is happening, right here, right now. Every time that we're drifting to projects for work, stressing about what to cook for dinner, or thinking about how we wish things could be different, we are missing the present moment. Each and every moment is a unique opportunity for you to interact with this magnificent thing called life. When we factor in our families and friends to the present moment, its a gift to be in an energy exchange of any kind with another human being. Why would we ever want to miss that? Trust me, from someone who is a master of multi-tasking, wasting the time that you have in the present doesn't get you any closer to completing the to do list.
You're out of ALIGNMENT with your Soul Purpose
If you've identified your soul purpose and you have a clear understanding of why you are on this planet experiencing this life as a human and whatever that is makes your heart sing, you must find a way to be in alignment with doing that. Your being knows you better than anyone else, it knows your passions, desires, abilities and magic! It isn't going to steer you wrong. It doesn't have to be all or nothing, but find a way to bring your purpose into your life.
You think you're ALONE
It's very easy for humans to feel isolated and confused by this life and the whirlwind happening around us. We think that no one understands us or would ever want to hear us. We separate ourselves from those that do care about and and do understand us because we do not want to inconvenience them. Let me tell you, you are not an inconvenience, you occupy this space as a human and have a voice and a message that is vital for you to share. And there is a tribe just waiting to welcome you in with open arms, facing the same challenges and wanting to support you with big big love!
