Getting 'locked up'.
Of course I don't mean in a physical jail as in prison, as we all know it. But my body, my 'home' space, locking off for several weeks...
From it, I got such a drive-home about freedom and what free flow truly means to me. And clarity that I need to put freedom first again.
It's always physical illness or ailment that straighten my thinking out about what I should be doing at any one time... Several years ago I got totally clobbered playing a 'friendly' netball game; so bad that I couldn't get myself up off the court!
My greatest, screaming fear in that moment was of not being able to move around freely, at will!
All of a sudden the traditional medical doctor that was on hand and helping with emergencies looked like the Devil himself! I KNEW he was going to recommend drugs, bed care etc.
The second I had pleasantly taken his consultation I was getting ready to take the plunge at walking, by myself! No 'holing up' for this lady! I got some loving help to my car and quickly realised 'I can drive! No pressure on my aching knee this way!!'
Oh, the relief!! The freedom restored!!
In consulting with an alternative practitioner the next day I was told, clearly, keep active; keep those joints in motion... And I did. And what was supposed to take 2 months to function properly with drugs and rest, took two weeks with slowing down, heat and ice and gradual, tender loving rehab and self care...
I don't like being down, from soaring! This is probably sufficient reason for me to keep putting my best life, my flow first, eh? There goes adjustment of priorities again!
Thank you, body, for locking off, but giving me the key to my happiness path again.
Loving you, for the wonderful, God-speaking creation that You are!
