As you have probably noticed I have been on a great high for weeks now. I have been so happy to dive into creating my business and connecting with amazing people (yes, you : ). I knew deep inside that this phase wouldn’t last forever so I enjoyed it as much as I could.
Well, after having pushed through on my Big Projects I got the flu. I was down and out and I couldn’t even move. I don’t get sick very often and when I do, I recover quickly. This was a different story all together. I was exhausted for almost a whole week and I just rested all day long.
I just focused on breathing. And resting. Nothing else was possible. And lately when I get sick I open my heart to all the people in this world who are very sick. The brave and strong souls who are in pain every day, all day. Those who have life-threatening diseases. And I am grateful. Grateful for my good health (that I take for granted most of the time). Grateful for my body. For its mysterious ways.
Most of all I am grateful for the opportunity to stop. And to listen. And then I do what my body tells me to do. I don’t ask why. I don’t argue. I just follow its voice. And I feel so good. So in tune with myself.
Slowly I am regaining my strength and I give in to my body’s cravings for raw food (salad, carrots…). I drink herbal tea and eat lots of fresh fruit. Before getting sick I thought it would be good for me to cut down on sugar and coffee. I didn’t really want to do it but I thought it would be good for me. Well, for the last 2 weeks I can’t stand the taste of coffee and I have no sugar cravings at all. Wow! That is just miraculous for a sugar-and-coffee-junkie like me.
Being in bed most of the day got me thinking a lot about what I really need to do and when. This has forced me to cut out all the extra and not really important stuff and I now focus my energy on my true priorities. My priorities this month are:
- Preparing my workshop and the Spiritual Fair I’m attending in Sweden next month
- Creating a Channeling e-course
- Improving my blogs and creating a great mailing list
Marketing my services is a pretty big challenge for me. How do I balance reminding people of what I do without being too pushy?
How do you do that?
OK, my computer-time is up for today. Now I’m going for a long walk outside. I have been craving Nature lately. And I just started the lovely Jackie’s free e-course the 10 Steps to Sooth your Soul in Nature and I am loving evey minute of it.
Never thought you’d be able to stand barefoot outside in February? Neither did I (ha, ha : ). Come and join us!
Love and Light,
