Do you know what the most important healing activity is?
This vital healing activity is often misunderstood or under appreciated.
We often refuse to allow it to fully work for us, claiming a lack of time in our lives to give it free reign.
Yet, once we accept it and honour it, Healing speeds up, on every level, mental, emotional as well as the physical.
What is this Important Healing Activity?
Sleep, Rest and Relaxation!
3 Things that we just don't do. Or, if we do, it is not truly qualitative enough to help us to fully heal and let our body repair.
Sleep, and I mean good quality, deep REM state sleep, for a minimum of 7 straight hours is what we need in order for our cells to regenerate. Not only that, we actually need sleep to shut down our nerve sense system and allow our spiritual and soul bodies, aka thoughts and emotions time to recharge. The only way to fully rest, release and repair, is to sleep.
I’ve just gotten back from my annual two weeks family vacation at the cottage. Where I got to spend lots of time, hanging with my family, water skiing, taking evening cruises around the lake, eating great food, conscious libations and good old fashioned R&R. Nothing recharges the soul better than simple unplugged, rest and relaxation.
In a recent study done by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) They have recognized that "sleep insufficiency is linked to motor vehicle crashes, industrial disasters, and medical and other occupational errors." As well as – "Persons experiencing sleep insufficiency are also more likely to suffer from chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, depression, and obesity, as well as from cancer, increased mortality, and reduced quality of life and productivity."
Most of us are well aware that when our sleep is disturbed and for long periods of time, we begin to wear down.
I use my Summer shutdown as a time to consciously unwind, from the intense go go go of being a mom, wife and entrepreneur. Its time for me to let go of all my drive and reset some intentions. Reassess my desires in life, business as well as personal. A time to unplug from all social media! Allowing me some qualitative time to really be “within” myself. To reevaluate the direction I want my life to go and to just plain get lots of SLEEP!
The first week I played hard, had a massage, slept late and relaxed by the water reading only fictional, entertaining stories.
The second week, I got down to the real core, inner repair work and using Danielle LaPorte’s new "Desire Map" I did my own inner digging, listening and empowering.
Summer time is the best time for downtime!
Downtime is about healing and rejuvenating yourself. It should be about relaxing, resting and recovering. One of the hardest things for most people is to take time for themselves. Sometimes, downtime leads to even deeper exhaustion.
I often hear from clients during a healing phase (usually 2 weeks after a set of Tonic remedies!) in their clearing of deep old traumatic events; that they are exhausted, have no drive or desire to do anything, can't focus on life, sometimes even feel dizzy. These are not new things developing, they are just your bodies way of saying – "Hey, Slow down! I need time to fix these things, to help you to release blocked and stuck energy so that you can heal and have greater energy."
When you ALLOW yourself the time to heal, your body may require far more healing than you realized. If you tend to push yourself on all levels, 24/7, 365 days a year, you eventually are going to burn out.
Most people are chronically tired, because they never let themselves fully rest in order to heal!
Or, they are unable to fully rest and get proper sleep because they are stuck in a trauma crisis. There is some old unresolved issue that they have not been able to see clearly in order to work through it and let it go.
If this is you, then I would love to help you find the true underlying trauma that is keeping you from living your life fully and restfully : )
Bottom line, is that as a complex, multifaceted human being, so many things can cause an imbalance. Chronic imbalance leads to illness and disease. So whether, this imbalance starts on an emotional, mental or physical level, it will eventually affect the others, as they all interlink.
In order to heal yourself fully, you must solve the problems on every level. Thus the power of Dynamic Medicine!
