You can keep up with my more esoteric thoughts and epiphanies at www.emilycamille.com and of course here I will keep you engaged (or strive to) with my stories of insight (?) to health.... which you will hopefully find amusing.
So now that you know what to expect... grab a cup of coffee, a cup of tea, or a super healthy green smoothie and join me for a second.
I am fascinated by the fact that we can "know" something for a lifetime but it can "hit" us in that lightbulb of moment that makes us experience the "aha" breath.
It happened just last night as I was experiencing pain in my entire body. It was familiar but it felt different... I sensed it differently. I started thinking about how mysterious my body has always been to me.
I know so many people with inflammation and auto immune diseases and while I do not want a title exactly... in an odd way I do desire to know what I am experiencing... as if a name would give me some command or sense of self.
That's when the lightbulb nearly shattered... okay it was more like a chandelier... like an enormously beautiful chandelier. Then I heard some things... and saw some images and felt some clarity.
I can call it inflammation... I don't think that was the word I heard, but it was how I understood it. And I realized that just because I was not assigned a name (or rather have never wanted to be tested for anything) that I actually do 100% understand it - as well as its divine nature. Maybe it's not so holy... but its definitely living and breathing.
I understand that I can honor myself for everything I do to keep myself well. It isn't always the easiest path. Some days I have to work so much harder to try to understand this vessel that defied death and is still finding its way to wellness... which we all do, because the very nature of balance is flux.
Anyway, you can do this. You can be in this tribe too. I sense a transformation coming... and this time its mind, soul and body.... normally I just leave the body out.
