My chiropractor was doing some deep tissue work on me the other day, and as he was bringing me to tears rolling my muscles to finally relax (no pain, no gain!), he was explaining to me how everything extends out of the core of our bodies. He used the example of how we as babies use our core before we roll over and eventually walk. We come into this world using our physical center innately, it’s as we grow we tend to mess with nature. As he was educating me on this topic I clearly saw a correlation. As babies we enter this world completely pure in spirit, emotion and thought. All is primitive and based on basic survival. As we age we are conditioned to pile on the layers that erase the pure essence of our true self. When our spiritual and emotional selves are out of balance we feel off- center. Nothing seems to flow and lean positively toward what we are naturally in tune with. When we pay attention to our own center, and create a balance in our lives, all falls into place with no distractions. When we quiet our minds and our hearts, that is when this flow happens. We are better able to travel our own journey when we nurture ourselves, have boundaries with others, and feed our souls with a healthy environment. This includes the company we keep and the energy that surrounds us each and every day.
Remember to pay attention to your surroundings and choices you make in your life. We are who we spend time with, we are what we eat, we are how we care for our bodies and nurture our loved ones. Always remind yourself to stay in alignment with your core self.
Center, balance and flow from there…..
