A whole health day
Yesterday, I knew I needed time in my inner world & time focused on my body and heart. I don't know if this is the case with everyone with fibromyalgia but for me, all emotions I experience are also felt in my body. So when I hurt emotionally, my heart literally feels it. Chest tightness/pain/chest fever/like my heart is inflamed.
I decided to focus on my heart chakra and feeling my feelings so they wouldn't stay inside.
I started my day watching the sunrise and feeling the breeze. Did a few things I needed to. Fed my cat. Meditated with primordial sound for 30 minutes. Fell back asleep and had a really special dream. Woke up, ate chocolate and romaine. (Selfcare is whatever you deem it.) Put basil and lime oils in my diffuser, set out 4 heart chakra crystals in front of me: serpentine, ruby in fuschite, prehnite, green calcite. Did breathing exercises, stretches, + light exercise. During butterfly breathing, I felt my heart let out a big fiery exhale. It's a heart opening breath, and my heart was in need of cool air. More is needed. All in its own time.
Then I saw two healers. I felt like the energetic version of an emergency surgery patient.
I had acupuncture with the good Jennifer, then an orthobionomy session with Yini (so much backstory as to why it was important to see her), followed by my first sensory deprivation tank floatation @float8ion, which I intended to be 30 minutes but turned into 90 minutes because there is no context of time in darkness and stillness. It was my last activity of the day, and I told myself I didnt have to BE anywhere else at any time after, so I could take my time. My mind really never shut off for the whole 90 minutes, as much as I tried to focus on primordial sound meditation or the nothingness. The mantras kind of came and went between thoughts. There was a lot to think about. A lot of life things to work through. Feelings to sort. I came out feeling like I'd done something really kind for myself.
Take care bbs, you're worth it
