The Body Heals the Mind

The Body Heals the Mind - Using your Summer Sense to feel alive

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all”

—Aristotle

 

My heart aches
I don’t seem to care about anything anymore
I’m feeling so down, nothing brings me joy…

I was having a summer lunch on my back porch, a most glorious tomato and basil salad, I was struck with a notion. Actually, I was struck with an awareness…

Under a choir of tree frogs, I took in those vibrant colors, that unique-tomatoey scent (you know the one), tasted the smooth oil, felt my skin warm but not too warm – the whole package.

You could say I was practicing mindful eating, yes, but I realized it went beyond that.
I was in a state of awareness, appreciation, and acceptance.

Not gushing emotion, not wishing for more- already grieving it can’t last, not needing to make comments or stories about it. Simply feeling a presence, call it a glow, in that moment.

Using what we’ll call the Summer Sense.

I want you to know this real sense is available even in times of ‘less than glorious’ circumstances. That’s the key – use it when things are ruff.

It’s a learned skill and it can be practiced. It is mending to the spirit.

That may seem daunting or even a bit ‘out there’, but I’m here to tell you it worked and continues to work for me.

Health is like sitting on a 3-legged stool. Each leg is necessary to support you.
These are your (1) physical being, (2) your emotional intelligence and taking the time (like we’re talking about here) to (3) access a spiritual connection.

Let me start by asking you a deep question…Read More
