Archive for May, 2012

My roses in May at our home in Virginia.

May has been a very busy month for me. I became ill the end of April with what I thought was a cold, (caught it from my husband) but it hung on and believe it or not, I’m just now getting better.

For me, colds tend to turn into other things like bronchitis and pneumonia, even when I am believing it’s not so, when my immune system is weak, my lungs tend to need a little help healing. So, I am here, healing and coming back into better health. 

When we’re healing from an illness, we cannot forget how our bodies, mind and spirit are connected. Even when sick, we need to do our best to get outside and take in the energy of nature. It really does help. Walking and moving our bodies, as we can, helps too, even when we don’t feel like getting out of bed most days or doing anything… pushing ourselves to take a shower, walk outside a bit and drink plenty of water and stretching, does help and can also help reduce stress about being ill and boosts our immune system.

When I’m sick, I still meditate and do my best to relax. This helps my body to heal faster by balancing my body and mind, decreasing my blood pressure, heart rate and the tension I may have in my muscles. For me, I coughed and coughed, which caused headaches and soreness all over. By meditating and doing my best to relax, it helped by releasing and balancing, since everything is connected and affects our bodies and mind, and is very helpful when healing. I continued to take my vitamins and supplements and eating good nutritious foods as much as possible. A variety is good to help fuel, not starve our bodies with what we need to heal and get going again. Getting out in the sunlight can help too, even just for a few minutes! I truly feel rest is one of the most important ingredients and steering away from stress.

During the month of May, I had so many engagements and things I needed to go to and being sick didn’t help. I didn’t want to go somewhere and “share the germs,” so I made sure I was not in an infectious stage when going out. I was glad I had two weeks to get over the worst of it… the runny nose, coughing, fever and ikky feeling all over, before attending any outings. Most of the functions had been planned for months, so I did my best to heal and get to them. I found that being around others, laughing and having a good time helped in my healing process, even though my illness changed from a cold to something a bit more intense and I had to get my doctor to help out some before it would go away.

I think even as healers and spiritual beings our bodies do become ill at times and sometimes it takes a bit more to recover when we’re just doing too much and have spread ourselves a bit thin. None of us are exempt from illness, but many of us know what’s best and when we need to do more. I ended up with pneumonia because my body just couldn’t keep up with the demands on it, so I acted accordingly. There is no magic wand that keeps us from succumbing to illness, but we do know eating right, exercising, getting plenty of rest, healthy activities and more do help. Some people are healthier than others and that’s just a fact. We are all different, but all connected.

I hope you all had a wonderful May and are looking forward to June and Summer being here once more. Where I live on the east coast, the weather has been up and down, but hit in the 90’s for Memorial Day. I have most of my garden planted and have been resting in between all the activities, gardening, writing and getting ready for a Family Reunion the end of June! So, once again, I may be pretty busy and post when I can to let you know how things are going.

The theme these days is “fast and furious” lol, so take care and keep in touch. As I can, I will share some pictures of some of the places I went and things I did in May! I feel good about it all because I’m doing just what I feel I’m supposed to be doing… getting out of the house more, meeting new people and not on the computer quite as much, lol. Everything comes together as it should and in Divine timing!

Love, light and peace to all,
