You are an amazing miracle! So much about you lies in the mystery that belongs to the miraculous. .
There is so much I did not understand before about what you need to function optimally. I understand now that food is key. It’s not the whole story, but certainly the biggest part of it. Whole, unprocessed, nutrient dense food, free of toxic ingredients. Only in the past three years have I been learning how to eat in a way that better supports your healthy functioning. I have more work to do.
Thank you for your amazing capacities. For giving me opportunities to experience this world. To breathe. To see. To hear. To feel. To walk. And talk. To touch. To run and jump. Dance and sing. To hold. To hug. To love. To create. To participate in creative ventures. Spiritual development. Gardening. Art. Building. Reading. Learning. Thank you so much for SO MUCH!
I have used you hard. I have pushed you to your limits, and then pushed more. You are amazing and strong. .
But I understand some things differently now.
I understand that many (perhaps all) of my symptoms have developed as a result of not giving you the things you need to replenish essential supplies for optimal health (food, sleep, meditative respites); feeding you things that were laced with toxins—like processed food, toxic thoughts, and negative emotions; and following old habits that don’t acknowledge, honor, or respect your needs.
I have demanded much from you, without much thought of tending to your needs. It was out of ignorance, misunderstanding, and misplaced trust. But now, I’m learning. I’m learning about “margins”; that the body can’t run low on everything and still remain robust. I’m cultivating new priorities and new habits that are more aligned with vibrant health. And not a day too soon.
I wish to support you in your efforts to rebuild and maintain a healthy and strong flow. I recognize your strong constitution. It’s the flow that’s been messed up. That’s my bad. .
In addition to eating differently, on the basis of new understanding, I want to add more movement back into my life with the intention of increasing your ability to function optimally. (Continues in comments⬇️)
