Take Time to Smell the Flowers

Take Time to Smell the Flowers

Balance the difficulty with remembering the good.  

Living with fibromyalgia is difficult.  Sometimes we get caught up in the agony of it all.  That is easy to do when we are in physical and emotional pain and when our body doesn’t allow us to do what we want to do.   We can get lost in the pain and despair and think that is all there is. 

Count your blessings

At these times, it is important to count our blessings.  Remember the good things that we are and that we have in our lives.  A good practice is to take a few moments before going to bed at night and bring to mind 2-3 three things that you are grateful for. 

During the worst years of my fibromyalgia, even though I had many blessings in my life, this was really hard to do.  I wanted so much to have and be more than I was.  But I could still be grateful for the roof over my head and the kindness of my parents.  I had two beautiful cats who were bright lights in my life.  They offered me love and companionship.  I was doing work that I loved by teaching yoga.  For these things I could be grateful.

Now that I look back, I can see more fully how important those things were and appreciate them even more.  

Daily Practice

This week, take some time each night before going to sleep and count your blessings.  It is important to remember the good things to help balance out the pain and struggle.  

Wishing you many blessings,

Bindu

Paradoxes of Prayer

Paradoxes of Prayer

Using our challenges to answer a calling from within promotes growth and expansion. Once the gift is received then the externals can change . . . yet you have the gained the wisdom to use your ‘riches’ for the highest good of all. May you grow and flower in all ways.

In the most difficult years of my fibromyalgia, this saying gave me a positive way to look at my challenges. Even my challenges are a blessing that I can appreciate even when I don’t like the challenge at all.

May gratitude fill your heart even during challenging times, ❤️Bindu

Opening to Love

Opening to Love

I suspect that surrender to what is can be one of the most difficult things a person with fibromyalgia can do. It certainly was for me. For years I denied, fought, and tried to ignore the limitations that fibromyalgia had over my body and my life.

Finally I was pushed into submission. All the fighting, denying and ignoring wasn’t working. I had to accept the reality of what was happening in my body and the limitations that it imposed on my life.

Surrender was the best thing I ever did. I don’t mean surrender as in giving up. I mean surrender as in accepting the reality of fibromyalgia and the limitations that it imposed upon me and my life.

It was only then that I could truly begin to heal. From a space of acceptance, I could explore, experiment and discover ways that I could rebuild my health.

I had to open my heart to myself and treat myself with love, compassion and acceptance as I was, fibromyalgia, messiness and all, before I could truly heal.

Join me in the power of surrender and experience how empowering it truly is.

May you surrender and discover the true power of Love, ❤️Bindu

What if . . . ???

What if . . . ???

What if . . .  ???

For those of us who are challenged with fibromyalgia and other chronic illness, we can feel like a victim to our circumstances.  We might fight the illness and the symptoms and want them to go away.  That is perfectly natural and normal.

Consider for a moment that there might be a higher possibility.  What if having fibromyalgia or another chronic illness is a wake-up call.  An opportunity to look beyond the illness to underlying factors contributing to the illness.

This doesn’t mean that we don’t want the symptoms to go away.  It does mean that rather than only treating the physical symptom, we might need to look deeper to fully rebuild our health.

 

The Wake Up Call

There are many possibilities that your wake up call might be asking for.  Here are a few examples:

  • Empower yourself in a relationship that you have been giving your power to another person in an attempt to feel more loved or safe.
  • Let go of childhood or societal conditioning to move into a more satisfying or empowered expression of your highest potential.
  • Begin to love yourself more and take care of yourself rather than to give all your energy to others without taking time to rest and recharge.
  • Take care of your body and provide it what it needs to heal and thrive.
  • Heal traumas or emotional wounds that are festering inside and blocking your inner peace and fulfillment.

 

My wake up call:

In my case, fibromyalgia was a huge wake up call and sent me on a journey of personal and spiritual growth that has changed me completely from who I was before.  I held onto a lot of repressed emotions and a lot of should’s and have to’s.  I was a very weak person and would let people walk all over me.  I was so desperate for love, that would stay in unhealthy relationships.  I wasn’t living my truth or my full potential.   Spirituality was an unknown word to me.  

Today, I am a force to be reckoned with.  I am strong.  I own my power.  I speak my truth.  I have found that by loving myself, I don’t need love from outside, yet attract loving people into my life.  I take great care of my body.  I love the work that I do.  I am content with myself and my life.  I have goals that I am working toward, and yet am at peace with where I am at.  My health is greatly improved.

I cringe when I think of what my life might have been like if I hadn’t broken out of the mold I was born into.

 

Are you ready?

If any of this resonates with you, then I congratulate you.  I welcome you to this incredible journey of healing and evolution.  I would love to support you in this journey.

Stay posted.  I am planning on rolling out some step by step programs to support you in reclaiming your power and nurturing self-love.

 

Introspection for this week:

Take some time this week to ask within to get some ideas about what your wake up call is.  Here are some questions you can contimplate:

  • What is your inner self reaching for?
  • What are your unfulfilled desires?
  • What success have you had in moving forward?
  • What is holding you back?
  • What are the obsticles in your way?
  • What support do you need?

Feel free to share on my Facebook page any insights that you have.

 

May you reach your highest potential and live a fulfilling life.

Honoring the Spirit of Christmas

Honoring the Spirit of Christmas

Tomorrow we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. 

Some would also call this the birth of the Christ Consciousness on the planet.   It is a day of great celebration and remembrance. 

 

Jesus was the living embodiment of unconditional love.

Jesus exemplified the personification of unconditional love, compassion and connection to God.  He demonstrated to us the unconditional love and compassion that we all crave.   He also reminded us that we have the ability to personify that love and compassion within our own heart and in our interactions with others. 

 

We have forgotten that we are love.

Many have failed us in holding us with unconditional love and compassion.  As a result of this, we have forgotten that we are lovable and worthy.   We also have forgotten that at our core, we are love.  The celebration of Christmas is a reminder for us to open our hearts to ourselves and others; to remember the legacy of unconditional love that Christ imprinted upon planet earth. 

 

Let’s impregnate our own heart with unconditional love. 

As you read this message, take a few moments to breathe deeply, place your hand on your own heart and say the words, “I Love You” to yourself.  Repeat this for a few minutes.  Opening your heart to receive this message and the love that it offers.  Breathe deeply and allow yourself to take this in. 

Love any parts of yourself that feel that they aren’t worthy of such love and compassion along with the parts that do.  I am here to remind you that you are worthy of love and compassion . . . even the parts of you that you deem unlovable or unforgivable.  Breathe and take this in.  You are a being of love who has forgotten who you are. 

 

Let’s share that love and compassion with others

As you fill your heart and being with this love, take a moment to bring to mind those that you love and send them a silent message of unconditional love and compassion.  Silently remind them that they are lovable.  They too are a being of love who has simply forgotten who they are.  Surround them with unconditional love and acceptance. 

Now bring to mind someone who challenges you or pushes your buttons.  Take a few moments to send this person a silent message of unconditional love and acceptance.  Reminding them that they are a being of love who has forgotten who they are.  Send them a wish of peace and forgiveness. 

Allow your awareness to expand to embrace the entire planet, including all beings, humans, animals, birds, insects, plants and more.  Hold the planet, your home, and all its inhabitants with unconditional love and acceptance.  Remind yourself that everyone deserves more love, not less.  Even those that you deem unworthy of love.  Remember that they too are beings of love who have forgotten who they are. 

 

This is honoring the Spirit of Christmas. 

This is the legacy that Christ birthed on this planet.  The future of planet earth as one people living in peace and harmony with abundance, love and prosperity for all. 

 

My blessings to you on this beautiful celebration of light and love,

Bindu

Beyond Fibromyalgia™

A new perspective on fibromyalgia 

Consider, for a moment, the possibility that fibromyalgia is a phase or stage in your life that you can move beyond.  What if fibromyalgia is a wake up call; your spirit’s way of getting your attention to move you beyond all that holds you back in life to become the person you were destined to be?

What if life is a process of Integrative Wholeness™, that it is time for you to move into the highest expression of who you really are step by step?

What if true healing deals with more than just alleviating the physical symptoms, but that you are composed of separate dimensions – physical, emotional, mental, expression, spiritual and energetic – and your mission is to balance and integrate each of these dimensions back into a whole.

Integrative Wholeness™ is an 8 fold process designed to empower you in this process of healing, transformation and evolution.  In the Integrative Wholeness™ process, each dimension of your being is addressed, balanced and integrated into the whole.  The result is improved physical health, greater emotional stability, improved mental clarity and focus, an internal sense of well-being, increased ability to manifest your dreams and desires, a greater sense of purpose, and a highly tuned internal compass to guide you in your life.

 

  • Heal the Heart (emotional)
  • Balance the Body (physical)
  • Harness the Mind (mental)
  • Enhance Your Expression (relationships, career, finances, and passions/hobbies)
  • Reconnect to Spirit (spiritual)
  • Strengthen Your Energy (energetic)
  • Reawaken Your Innate Intelligence
  • Align with Your Core Values

Stay tuned for more details on the fulfillment of your destiny of becoming the highest version of yourself that you every dreamed of.    The upcoming Kaleidoscope Online Healing Circle is the first step.
