Found myself lately hearing from so many dealing with their physical pain and issues this week. Some come up after yoga and they want postures to stop the discomfort which I do understand. I ask them to consider why they think it is happening and they don’t have an answer. I heard a meditation message a while back and found myself thinking of my own message. As I meditate more I’m able to witness the messages my body is telling me. Therefore I found myself up early this morning to write this letter:
I have been trying to send you signals that have gone unanswered so I thought I would write you this message instead.
Let me introduce myself to you. I am your symptoms. I am your pain, agitation, fatigue and exhaustion. I am your herniated disc; headache; cramps; elevated blood pressure; upset stomach; pulled muscle; bloated stomach; swollen ankles; discomfort in your forearm; heartburn or chest pain.
You may be aware of your symptoms and I know I have been your causes for concern and worry. Still you tend to suppress, ignore or disown me; complain or dislike me. Yet I am simply here to remind you to seek out your health, wellness and best interest for a long and happy life.
You usually want me to go away fast, disappear or you end up irritated or shocked that I showed up to begin with. Because of this, you tend to suppress or medicate me, instead of recognizing or exploring me. My request is that you to see me as a messenger. I want to help guide you back to the places that you can be more loving, caring and compassionate with yourself. A place of honesty and balance.
For this reason, I may ask you to consider exploring your life; health, diet, sleep, exercise, relationships, and work. I may remind you to stop and be more generous and giving with yourself. Spend more time “un-doing” the knots, laugh more, have fun and be still more.
I hope someday you’ll come to see me as a friend. I am not the reason for your pain, discomfort or suffering. I am only pulling at your hand like a child asking you to listen to them. You are so amazing and I just wanted to remind you of the beauty that is naturally within you.
