Bliss Diary – July 5, 2015

Love one another and help others to rise to the higher levels, simply by pouring out love. Love is infectious and the greatest healing energy. — Sai Baba

Intention/Affirmation: I intend to heal, rest and love up my body.

Nutrition:
morning delight
fresh ginger tea, lemon, stevia
16 oz green juice + bowl of strawberries

I did a semi-liquid fast today to help with the healing and because I wasn’t hungry.

Movement:
* 10 minute walk
* 30 minute rebounding
* 15 minute family walk
* 10 minute myofascial release

Meditation: 20 minutes in the bath today + 90 minute napitation – mostly a nap because I was up for a few hours in the middle of the night because my face/eye was hurting.

Body Goodness: Well, yeah I totally have a sty. I’ve had a few of these in the last 10 years. My eye (and underneath) are pretty swollen. It looks pretty sweet. πŸ˜‰ I’ve been doing lots of healing remedies like: epsom salt bath, using essential oils externally and internally, using warm compresses and doing clay masks along with taking lots of vitamin c, oregano, essential oils, curcumin, goldenseal,Β  etc. throughout the day to heal. My plan has been to kick out the infection and ensure it doesn’t continue to swell.

Mind/Heart Goodness: I noticed I felt frustrated about my eye and was having negative thoughts come up around my health. This is why I love mindfulness training, we can witness what we are telling ourselves and choose a different story/perspective and bring our attention to other areas that are working well.

I don’t have to let this so called “problem” take up space in my mind. I will do all of my remedies and rest and know I will figure it and it will eventually heal. Not a big deal. Life goes on. Yes, my eye + face hurts and yes, it is swollen, and yes, life is still awesome and this too shall pass. Not gonna let a puffy face get me down. Singing this now:
Ain’t nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody gonna slow me down, oh no
I got to keep on moving πŸ™‚

Gratitude & Appreciation: I am so grateful for my hubby. He totally supported me in a big way so that I could rest and heal. So so so blessed. I am grateful for all my herbs, oils and concoctions. I am grateful for the amazing bath I took. I am grateful for green juice. I am grateful for my epic nap today. I am grateful for my inner medicine woman. I am grateful for my body and especially my eye and immune system. Thank you!

Praying I wake up tomorrow with less swelling and redness! πŸ™‚

  1. Love how you’re changing the story – I have this same thing when it comes to health/body things – it can consume me. Observing it is the key! Sometimes I get caught up in it, when there are lots of other stressors firing, but usually, it’s more just changing the story. Sometimes I even laugh at myself about it … definitely progress!

    1. I think we are soul sistas! Just sayin. πŸ˜‰ Totally feel ya on this one. I’ve had a good amount of health opportunities over the years and it can totally consume me too. I get so myopic on one thing and, yeah, you know the story. πŸ˜‰ Here’s to changing our health stories. We’ve got this! Boom sauce!! xx
