Sometimes healing is not like anything else. There’s no simile, no analogy, no poetic prose or otherwise words or actions to express those shifts occurring, wherever it is they occur.
Do they happen in the body somewhere? Do they really? I wonder about such things on occasion because it feels like this puny bag of skin, blood and bones is too minor to hold all of that. Perhaps like a radio, we receive the signal but don’t originate it? Perhaps…
I’m really trying to tell you something right now, but the words aren’t there. I could make something up that in some way, might offer the palest of reflections but it wouldn’t really be it – the what’s going on – if you know what I mean.
What I can tell you is this. Seems (according to my body anyway) I’m in a hurry to resolve a whole BUNCH of stuff. Lots. And preferably all of it right now, thank you very much. So much so that I’m making both conscious and sub/unconscious decisions that lead me right up to the very edge of the pit of Stuff To Be Dealt With.
Lots of stuff. Heck, ALL my stuff!
Okay, here’s one: it tastes a bit like fairy floss: sweet; gone almost before you register the flavour; mythical and more-ish. Can you ever really describe what it tastes like or how it feels in your mouth as it melts into nowhere?
This week I’ve lined up a bumper crop of activities. A five mornings in a row workshop on the cultivation of uddiyana bandha, kinesiology and acupuncture. All working on the Stuff (not that I knew it until a couple of hours ago, when I chuckle-snorted my way into acknowledgement).
And so while I might look all calm and chilled to the untrained eye, what’s really going on is this: quivery, shimmery shakiness; re-routing; deconstruction of wastelands; gentle encouragement; deep diving; much stillness; and connecting all the friggin’ dots.
What all of that adds up to is Healing. And getting Super-Duper Unstuck. Well, a bit more anyway!
Preparing the way for that bright, shiny new Future I’ve been talking about lately. The one where I have a plan.
Can’t stay long here, not even to edit so please excuse any roughness to this post. It’s 9.30pm and I’ve gotta get my ass into bed so I can cheerfully arise at 5am. For yoga, bliss and love.

P.S. ENORMOUS ups to Kerry, the magical kinesiology chick!

I’m going to see Kerry when I’m in Melbs in April. For coffee obviously but also for a kiniesiology appointment. Your recommendation is all I need! 🙂
Do it! It is well worth a session. But make sure you book early as her diary fills up ahead of time. Can’t wait for your visit!!
Y is for Yogini said:
i feel this. there are so many things i want/need to untangle and i get impatient with how long it takes to heal, unravel, build anew. but we must keep heart and faith. i do my best. 🙂
Hi! Was thinking of you today. Sounds like life is frenetic but managable right now. Wishing you a peaceful weekend! –B
hi svasti, i’m glad i’ve discovered another serious yogini’s sharing…found you at yoga dork, and found her after reading today nytimes article about tara stiles somewhat controversial approach, secularizing yoga. sigh. have to contemplate that one. my gut screams when i think of it, but then i begin to think … why not? people have to know about yoga and so many are hung up. i taught gang girls in juvie lockup for years, and believe me, if they hadn’t gotten over their weird impression of “the yoga” by meeting me up close and personal, they’d still be dissing bliss. so…i’m inclined to think it’s okay to “sell” yoga cause in the end, it all comes out in the wash. check out my other thoughts about things in you like on my spiritual blog: http://www.lordflea.com
