It is interesting to hear people talk about the pains in their body. For example, you hear things like the pain in their joints is just arthritis because they are getting old. People say they can’t do anything about their pains. Do you catch yourself thinking like that? Is that really the truth about pain?
My daughters took me shopping to buy a new pair of runners. In the store I had my first experience where the clerk actually took time to question me about my feet and how I walked. I purchased the runners the clerk suggested. Those runners are supposed to correct my step so I’m not walking on the outsides of my feet.
I started using these new runners on our treadmill. I noticed the inside part of the heels were sore. Blisters showed up at first and now after a number of months I have slight calluses in those spots. This didn’t really mean anything to me until this past weekend.
That Friday my computer had a virus and was hacked leaving me without a computer all day. Being hacked like that was very upsetting. I processed through a lot of emotion that whole day leading me to experience a major shift in consciousness. My day closed with the computer guy fixing my computer easily. He told me I was very lucky. To me it wasn’t so much luck as it was a miracle.
The day that followed that shift I was again walking on our treadmill. My hips were swinging side to side like never before! That was another miracle to me because there was so much more movement in my hip area. After I was done walking I took my runners off and became aware of how the inside heels of my feet were unusually sore again. Why were my heels sore that day? I started to see what my body was showing me!
For me to make that shift inside, I worked with my energetics and mindsets. The negative thoughts and emotions I had were gone. My computer was fixed and a peaceful feeling came over me. With those changes in my mind and spirit, the physical body was next.
My runners had been gently encouraging the correction of my physical steps. The correction in my steps also corrects and aligns every other physical part of my body involved in walking. I was aware of the extra movement in the hip area. The soreness I felt that day on the inside heels of my feet confirmed I made a shift. The shift was helping my physical body to align and center itself even more.
People tend to think when their aches and pains show up they need to change something they are doing. Using my example, people said I needed to get new runners because those ones were hurting my heels. People told me maybe I need to stop walking on the treadmill. Is that really the solution?
When you think about what your physical body is experiencing right now, consider these questions:
- What is your mindset when it comes to the aches or pains you are experiencing?
- Have you noticed those aches and pains are showing up at times you are making changes in your life?
- Are those aches and pains showing up indicating you are stuck and struggling or indicating you are in the healing process?
You see you are your own leading authority when it comes to you and your life! You take you with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You know in any moment of time if something doesn’t feel right inside. You know when you are experiencing feeling stuck and you’re struggling. You also know when you are in the healing process and the body is ‘righting’ itself.
By your very nature, when you shift your consciousness the process of shifting impacts your body, mind and spirit. All three move into alignment. Saying that another way, whenever you clean up the ‘unrest’ inside yourself, the physical body follows immediately!
For me, the soreness I experienced with my feet that day wasn’t about needing new runners or not walking on the treadmill. That soreness helped me realize my feet are changing. The soreness showed me I had some resistance expressed through my feet. Now I’m not walking so much on the outsides of my feet.
Transformation and healing takes place on all levels. It doesn’t matter if the transformation and healing takes place in your health, relationships, finances, etc. There will be movement in your body, mind and spirit. Regardless of your age, there are aches and pains in the recovery as well. Your body is that perfect!
Wherever you are on your journey, may you find what works for you…find your own truth…and you will always be guided to feel at peace inside.
