Why is it that the things we need to do most are usually the last things we think of to do?
I get so caught up in the day to day chaos around here that I rarely remember to stop and breathe let alone taking a few minutes to do the things that really help. Last weekend I ended up with a nasty headache. I knew why I had the headache … my C2 vertebra frequently shifts when I’m stressed due to my neck and shoulder muscles being too tense. Yeah, I need to figure out some better ways to deal with stress. I knew I’d been stressed; we got back from our “vacation” and had finished up getting the pup mostly well the prior weekend and the first full week back at work was a bear. But it took a friend mentioning chakras for me to even consider that with all the stress my chakras were probably out of whack. So I took a few minutes to clear them out and wasn’t at all surprised to find that my root was completely blocked.
Now, I know I feel better when I tend to my chakras on a regular basis but I allow myself to to get so wrapped up in minutiae that I don’t think about “regular maintenance”. I really need to be looking to that “regular maintenance” as just that, something to work into the routine along with exercise and meditation. I don’t do any of these things often enough even though I’m much happier and energetic when I do. This week I’ve been working on keeping my chakras cleared out, even if it was just while walking to my next meeting. I have to say that I’ve been calmer at work this week than I’ve been in a long while. The turkeys still irritate me, but it’s easier to laugh at them when I’m not already mentally stressed.
Now if I can just find some time to work on the exercise and meditation …
