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.
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.
* 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. 😉 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, 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 🙂
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! 🙂
