As part of my meditation at the beginning, I downloaded an app for my phone which was a 21 day Deepak Chopra guided meditation. Since then I have subscribed to their newsletter. This morning I received a link to the Healing Wisdom section which was focussing on ‘mind and body approaches to preventing breast cancer.’ I was so thrilled to read that everything they mentioned with regards to diet, external factors such as stress, toxins and more were totally reflected in our ‘ten point plan’. It was brilliant to read the information on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. I particularly liked this:
When we connect to our innate wholeness through spiritual practices, it allows us to access our inner healing abilities. We strengthen our defenses against abnormal cells and activate the pathways that give us health and vitality. By understanding breast cancer from a mind-body-spirit perspective, we begin to see it as a phenomenon of the mindbody. We can then start to make choices that are most healthy for our physical and emotional layers while accessing our deepest source of health and natural balance through spiritual practices.
Here is the link to the whole page. It’s really worth a read; http://www.chopra.com/files/newsletter/Oct12/Oct12-HealingWisdom.html#
I had an acupuncture session today. The first time in about a month. The points that were ‘pinned’ felt really good. What I mean is that, it was between pain and pleasure. It didn’t hurt but it definitely felt like a dull ache, some more than others. Michael explained that he had worked some heart points which were the most sensitive to me. In acupuncture working the heart channels works on steadying and balancing my emotions. Well that explains why they were so sensitive then! And also he worked on my kidney points. This is where all life force and energy comes from. Again wanted to boost and balance that energy to make me stronger. Next time I go I will have a healing session afterwards with Lyn. Can’t wait.
I decided to have a big ol’ beetroot and carrot juice this afternoon. I have had my usual green juice for breakfast and plenty of nuts and lunch but now to get those superfoods inside me as an extra boost. Beetroot is classed as superfood because of betacyanin which is the pigment that gives red beets their color and is believed to be responsible for helping fight cancer. Well it looks good and tastes sweet and if its organic, fresh and unprocessed I believe you really cannot go wrong.
Im having a visit from my step son this afternoon with his friend, Amy. It’s always nice having visitors especially now that the days are getting colder I’m less likely to go outdoors. I sound like an old lady! Well you know what I mean! I like to stay warm and cosy.. 🙂
Packing tonight for a few days away to Northumberland. Never been there before…. I’m looking forward to it and the long drive there. In the old days I would have said it was like trucking and Pete and I would have insisted on having a Yorkie! But now I am guessing we will be eating almonds! ha ha! Ahhhh, funny. 🙂
