If I was going to enter the world of energy, soul work, and remember the healer and intuitive within me, it was always going to have to be via a physical experience.
I needed it to be something incredibly palpable to allow my curiosities about that world to be unleashed.
Well.. All I can say in the universe heard my souls call and answered!
9 years ago (gosh time flies!) and i was training for a half marathon.
Running was my 'head clearing' time. A time to let it all release and clear my thoughts and the voices of doubt. I ran a lot. it was pretty much my only tool for calming my ego, so when the universe had plans to remind me of my souls path, it was also a gentle nudge to explore other oprions of easing my mind.
I'll never forget the day I was running with my house mate and I had to keep stopping to stretch out my calf. The previous weekend I'd run about 5 more kms that I'd planned simply because I felt in the flow. Any runners out there will understand that feeling when you have a day that you feel like you could run forever. So, I didn't teper my distance back and allow for the ectra stress in my body from the extra kms and enter 'almost stress fracture'!
Devistated was an understatement! I had my calf assessed and was told to stop running immediately if I wanted to avoid a stress fracture. My heart sunk, and a big part of me was concerned for how I was going to release the over thinking in my mind too.
With a lot of mental resistance I took 6 months off running, missing the half marathon goal I'd set out to conquer and got on with life.
6 months later when I decided to give the running thing a go again. Keeping in mind here that I'd practiced my injury rehab to the letter. I walked out the front door of my house and as i was walking to the gate I thought "I have no idea what I'm going to do if that pain comes back..."
Sure enough, first step the pain was there. I was in shock. "Are you kidding me! After ALL the rehab I'd done and time off I'd taken, how can this STILL be here?"
Frustrated, i kept running, I was done waiting and I wanted to run! So i headed to the baseball ovals near my place. Massive space covered in lush soft grass and I ran. Then I stopped. This wise voice from withing told me that "You can no longer heal this injury on the physical level, you re-ignited the energy of the injury when you became fearful that it would still be there. You allowed the energy blueprint to resurface. Go and see a Kinesiologist."
I was astounded at the information dropping in and how direct it was. Not having spent much time thinking about my intuition at this stage, but feeling strongly enough to follow the wise words at this time in my life, I called a Kinesiologist and booked myself in.
I will never forget this session, as it truly shifted something big withing me. At the end of the hour session I sat up on the table, and the very first thing I noticed was that my mind was COMPLETLEY CLEAR. Not one thought flowing through there. pure bliss and silence and peace.
The next day when i went for my 'test run', i took my first step and there was ZERO PAIN. In a bit of disbelief I kept on running and it felt amazing and so incredibly free! To this day, 9 years later, I have never had that calf pain back again.
My first thought as I ran with ease and flow was "What are my clients missing out on?" My career at this stage was as a Myotherapist, Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer. And this was the moment I decided to study Kinesiology and the moment my whole path was about to change.
That was the experience that shifted my perspective and had me asking different questions in life.
9 years later I still practice Myotherapy, but now it's infused with Kinesiology, Reiki and a whole lot of intuitive lead healing guidance from the other realm.
I sit here in so much gratitude for my busy mind leading me to run and run and run and for that injusy itself. I would have never been so curious about the world of the subconscious or the world of sou and energy had I not had that injury.
Do you have a story or a situation that turned the tables for you?
Are you able to sit in gratitude for it's presence?
have you healed the energy and emotions that came with it?
