So… how goes it out there? It’s been a couple of months & I was talking to a friend the other day about why this nasty virus & flu has hit us all so badly this year, what is underneath it all etc etc… We like to explore all aspects… &, it seems to me, we need to ‘go within’… to retreat & restore, to reflect & regroup, to rest…
It seems we are all fairly shaken up by various events in the world, the ‘old way’ is no longer working, & we cannot take anything for granted. But, what does happen, when we are faced with what I called ‘enforced dormouse’ a few years ago, is we learn, we heal, & we emerge differently.
Some of you are aware I had a traumatic family event to deal with last year, & I definitely needed to withdraw, rather than ‘share’, as the ripples impacted across my entire life… So it is with dramas or traumas, a good reason not to encourage them through our own behaviours – a lesson I took many years to learn, having grown up amidst constant trauma. However, crises occur, it’s part of life, & working out how we balance our responses, can be a challenge… How much withdrawing is appropriate & healing, & how much is just plain reclusive, & not useful…!!
Bodywork, meditation, walks, quiet times… all have their place… If I can help by offering time for you to ‘simply be’ with a massage session, do get in touch. And, hitting reply doesn’t work, it disappears into the ether, so hit the ‘get in touch’ link… Till next time, take care & go gently.
