What have I done for over a week? I’ve been plain ketchup -or playing catch-up. Yes, that actually struck me as funny, in my spent state. With everything I’ve added onto my Life Improvement Mission, I had to make choices of omission. Namely, I had time to either blog or exercise. I chose to exercise because that will improve my life more. So I’ve kept up with sweating for at least ten minutes a day. I’ve missed only a couple of days of my 28 so far. I’m okay with that. It’s so much better than the 28 days prior to these ones.
I’ve also had clients, friends and relatives in the hospital. I’ve been like a rat in a maze, going around endlessly confusing hospital wards, trying to find my intended Therapeutic Touch recipient. The challenges of treating someone in a noisy environment, with awkward I.V.s and many interruptions are very sobering. The seriousness of my healing work always strikes me hardest in the hospital. It’s stark, institutional, impersonal, life-or-death in the hospital. The spa-like accoutrement of how healing work can be done are missing. It’s not all ambient music, proper feng shui and nature pictures on the wall like my wellness centre offices have been.
Luckily, I’ve been treating people in hospital since my very first year of offering energy healing. I had made many a trip to Hamilton’s Henderson Hospital (for cancer patients) as a newbie. It helped to develop me into a practitioner who takes her work very seriously. And, I can focus no matter what’s going on around me.
Focusing usually means ignoring the non-essential. These last nine days have required more focus on pro-active tasks, educating new clients who are completely new to energy healing and making those hospital visits. This took me away from blogging. But I had to give a quick update tonight because people were asking.
I am quite pleased with my progress on this mission. My choices of change have been maintained so far. I’ve cleared some clutter, I have only eaten out four times, I’ve gotten to bed before midnight most nights, I’ve lost 23 pounds, I’m properly hydrated, I’ve got some leads on office and workshop space and I’ve been honest and specific in my answers to people – no little white lies for the sake of an easier conversation. I still have to find comfortable sexy shoes. And a few other things, but it’s not their time yet.
I’d love to know if any readers have been inspired to make improvements to their own lives. Go ahead and comment on the blog or e-mail me directly. You might inspire me!
