I wanted to share this video from Dr. Mark Hyman.
At the same time that many of us are forced or choose to apply conventional treatments to our and our kids’ conditions, I believe it is essential that we find ways to detach from the diagnoses and details and take a much broader view of these situations.
We are spiritual beings having human experiences. And no matter what your personal beliefs are along the continuum that is life, spirit, and energy, I know that investigating and hopefully integrating some or all of what Dr. Hyman discusses will be beneficial to all of us in sickness and in health.
Spirit, energy, and the human experience are non-dual. The degree to which we thrive is determined by the choices we make and how we decide to observe our form-based conditions and move forward.
We are creative beings.
It’s true that sometimes when things get tough, our passion for creating can wane.
But this is usually temporary. And actually, it is often when we are down or in pain or are fearful that creativity supports us the most.
Like all meaningful, elevating, enriching influences, creativity calls us, not from somewhere outside of ourselves, but rather, from within–from the depths of our own souls.
She is always with us, this spirit of genius, this angel companion. Yes, sometimes we turn away. But in our truest moments, at those times when we are most ourselves, we turn towards her again and listen.
When we create, even for a short time, any lack or fear or grief dissipates amidst the vibrant clarifying energy we experience. It is in these present moments that we acknowledge we are truly alive.
We are here to create and thrive.
When in the discomfiting “is-ness” of reality we are able to catch a clarifying glimpse of our inner being and the glory of what it is manifesting, there can be no doubt of Source’s undying love for us. This is in fact what suffering calls us to, isn’t it?
Although sometimes, often, almost always challenging to discern, pain is a loving invitation. It’s is a portal through which we are called to walk. If we do so, and if we are open to it, we are met by an expansion so freeing that we are never again to accept the bondage of who we were merely moments before this spiritual birth.
