What with one thing and another I haven't done any writing for quite a few weeks now! What's more didn't realise how much I missed it until I put pen back to paper this morning. Around August Bank Holiday Weekend, I started to have a spot of bother with one of my eyes, the right one. My vision in that eye was quite distorted. A bit like those strange full length mirrors that used to be all the rage at fun fairs, distorting people's shapes. So you could say I am seeing things a lot differently these days.
So I have been receiving lots of Spiritual Healing and looking at EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to help me along, with the hope that I can avoid the op. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the eye was healed quite naturally, not that I have any intention of avoiding the operation when the time comes.
What I have is the wonderful sense of feeling truly supported by the many Spiritual Healers who are either sending me absent or giving me hands on healing. And one more thing I AM BEGINNING TO SEE MUCH MORE CLEARLY, MAYBE NOT IN THE ACCEPTED WAY, but certainly am revising the way I look at things. New ideas and inspirations continue to pop into my head, and when I look out onto the world now I see a magnificent kaleidoscope of colours that were somehow absent before this all happened.
Strange isn't it? Everything is much more heightened and I am much more aware of all the subtle nuances and shades of light and shadow, merging into one another. That's what I so enjoyed this morning, sitting outside the Hub breathing in the Autumn sunshine as the world went by; appreciating the richness of the leaves as they mutate into yellow and golds and browns before they finally flutter to the floor. The fluffy cumulus clouds also spread themselves lazily across the sky, tinged with a touch of grey, which stood not a chance against the advancing blue sky.
Sometimes our vision becomes clouded by our own self-doubt. Sometimes, the way we look out onto the world is distorted, sometimes we can no longer look and see who and what we truly are. The relationship we have with ourself is so very important. It is the starting point for all our inner work and healing. Never is it so important to nurture and take very good care of ourselves; to love rather than put down and punish because we don't come up to scratch.
This morning, therefore, I gave myself permission to be me, to sit down outside the Hub with coffee, cake and fruit juice and at long last write down some of the words that have been bubbling up inside me - to celebrate me.
It is so easy to deny yourself the one thing that can make all the difference to your day. It doesn't have to be something that costs megabucks, just something that warms and nurtures you, puts you back in touch with your beautiful self, and the simple things in life. And then life takes on a brand new colour and vision.
