I don’t have to suffer in silence
An important lesson I like to share is this…
Seek support when you’re suffering. Whether its physical, emotional, mental, spiritual (or the whole dang lot), seek support.
You don’t have to do it alone. You don’t have to suffer, and try to keep on going as if there’s nothing wrong.
Today, I was texting with a client who wanted to book another session, and they sent me this message:
“You taught me the importance of working through/seeking support… no need to draw out the suffering when Kinesi can do so much to help.”
I teach this because it’s what I’ve learned to do myself
If we have a broken bone, or an obvious physical symptom, we are much more likely to do something to deal with it. But anything less visible and we often just try to solider on.
Just because we can “manage” — for a while anyway — doesn’t mean we should.
I’ve used this approach repeatedly in my life, to deal with issues such as trauma and PTSD, autoimmune disease, hair loss, stress and grief.
Your emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing are just as important as your physical health
What’s more, they all interact with, and impact each other. Your stress levels can eventually lead to physical health problems. And physical health problems can cause disturbances in other aspects of your wellbeing.
Often these days, clients come to see me when they’re in spiritual crisis. I find this happens when they’ve been tolerating the bejeezus out of the stress and suffering for some time.
Spiritual crisis is often born from this — the need for everything to crack wide open. Because even when we know things aren’t okay, we persist. Trying to keep on keeping on.
In the meanwhile, until we learn to reach for help when its needed, life can get more and more uncomfortable in a variety of ways.
Eventually, your very intelligent body knows that the best thing to do is let everything fail, all at once.
Either way, you can recover
But it’s certainly easier to keep up the maintenance than it is to try to hold on until you reach breaking point…
Which is one of the reasons that personally, I have regular sessions for myself. My go-to’s are kinesiology, cranio-sacral osteotherapy, and spiritual healing.
I recommend a maintenance schedule for clients, too.
“The problem is”, said a friend, “you don’t always know when you need support”.
Exactly! Which is why it’s good to have a regular schedule, at a pace that works for you.
Allow yourself to be supported. It’s not weird or selfish to take care of your needs on all levels, before you get to a crisis point.
Take care of you, beloveds.
