ONE HEALING QUESTION:EMOTIONAL DETOX

Leave a comment

EAST MEETS WEST

A few years ago I listened to a series of meditations put together by Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey. It was a 21 day Spiritual Detox Series. There is one pearl of wisdom that I came away with that I use everyday and want to share today on this post. It is a question that can be applied to any situation. I mostly use it in interactions with others. Before any communication, or interaction. I don’t always remember, but I am getting better at remembering before I do tasks that impact my health, my relationships, my acquisition of time.

THE QUESTION: WHAT IS MY INTENTION?

I recently had some news about someone that could have opened the door to calling a person that I have not had direct contact with for quite awhile. Asking myself what my intention was in calling helped me reassess the call and not make it. I realized that call would be an unnecessary distraction. A step back in engaging in a conversation that would not help me in my healing process. To connect with a person based on sharing information that would only help reinforce my own mental monologue gone unchecked.Covert complaining, gossip and lamenting about how bad thing are. Okay, maybe not so covert. But maybe it would start out that way? Oh, please! More yada,  yada, yada…

WHAT IS MY INTENTION ON STEROIDS

How much of what I say is totally unnecessary? More than less. Stopping myself from talking feels like being in my own Seinfeld episode. Realizing how much ideas that seem to be about something are really about nothing, but when examined are pretty revealing.

Detoxing happens on many levels. It is like looking through the garbage for something you think you threw out that can not be replaced. Who wants to do that? Sometimes it just bloody well stinks.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
