Your physical body speaks to you often. Your body is the vessel, which carries your soul. When this body is with dis-ease, pain, injury, etc., it is communicating a very important message to you. It is asking you for more EASE in your life. It is asking you to slow down, to nurture and repair.
Ask yourself where you can lighten up in your life.
Where can you lighten the load?
How can you slow down?
With whom can you be vulnerable enough to ask for support, assistance and nurturance?
Your physical pains are asking you to let go of your grip. Let go of the need to control the outcome. Let go of the need to be in denial of the injury. Ask for strength for acceptance of what is happening now.
Be open to being vulnerable to needing others assistance and gifts. Just as you give your gifts and nurture others, it’s only natural to accept gifts and nurturance from others. It feels good to give and you must balance this with being open to receive.
Take this injury or illness as a way of entering a winter of your life. We all need time to rest, rejuvenate and relax. Enjoy some down time and allow others to step in. It feels good for them to be there for you too.
Love yourself and give little hugs and forgiveness towards this injury or illness.
