Essentially, me

Friday, June 28, 2013

I have been terribly busy (No! that should be wonderfully busy, cos it's not a bad thing. I'm planning a Neighborhood BBQ/Potluck for the 4th).

My last appt with the chiro was the finishing touch I needed. My shoulder is doing much better. And I attribute a lot of it to, not only getting back in line (alignment, wise) but also, I found some very non-threatening relaxation exercises. The one for chronic pain I've done 3 times now and, wow! what a difference.

Plus, a local massage therapist needed someone to practice on for a new technique she's offering - Emotional Release Therapy. It's an application of essential oils, some reflexology, affirmations, etc.. I did it yesterday. I have to say I love essential oils, but she used SOOOOO many of them, that I felt like I could have been served as a main course after 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven! I was essentially fragrant!!!

The treatment came at a good time because I've been processing a lot of stuff/baggage from my earlier years. Miles and miles down that highway . . . I think since 'retiring' last year, my brain is finally getting around to processing some old stuff in my "Too Hard Basket" that needs to be sorted, dealt with or tossed.

I am thankful to be feeling so much better, both physically and emotionally. Getting back to, essentially me.

I hope to look back on this year as the year of the cat .

Have a great weekend!!!

    Sounds like you are going to have FUN on the 4th emoticon

Glad to hear that your shoulder is feeling better. I am curious about those exercises for chronic pain that you mentioned. Is there a web site that you found them on or something here on SP? I can use all the help I can get with my chronic hip pain.

Well, I'm off for a day ride. Have a wonderful w/e !

    Glad your shoulder is doing better. How great to find someone who needs to practice massage! I have a gift card for a free pedicure, maybe this week would be a good time.

    Getting rid of old baggage lifts a lot of weight for your shoulders! Whatever it takes to get the job done - do it. Have fun with your cook out!
