DAY 247: Finding Your Way To Health

finding your way

In my post yesterday I invited you to put all your fears regarding your health on paper; to bring them to the surface and write them all down.

I know that looking this deeply inside yourself might be a difficult thing for you to do. I understand that there will be resistance to this process and I want to support you and help you with it, because it is important.

Until you become aware of your fears and make the effort to move beyond them, they will continue to chip away at your strength, emotional balance and your innate capacity to heal. Your fears do not allow you to heal and live a joyful life.

So, I will get you started and offer you an idea about what fears might make it to your list, in no specific order:

  • I am afraid of illness
  • I am afraid of cancer
  • I am afraid of germs
  • I am afraid that my body will not keep up
  • I am afraid that I cannot heal
  • I am afraid of physical pain
  • I am afraid of hospitals
  • I am afraid I will get sick
  • I am afraid something is not right with my body
  • I am afraid I will become bed-ridden
  • I am afraid that the quality of my life will diminish drastically
  • I am afraid my spouse will resent my illness
  • I am afraid I will not be able to do the things I love anymore
  • I am afraid to ask for help
  • I am afraid it will only get worse
  • I am afraid there is no cure for me
  • I am afraid nothing will work
  • I am afraid to try a new medication
  • I am afraid to give up my medication
  • I am afraid my joints will give out
  • I am afraid to live in my body
  • I am afraid to move my body
  • I am afraid to pay attention to my body
  • I am afraid to speak my mind
  • I fear loneliness
  • I am afraid of life in general
  • I fear death
  • I fear the death of my mother, father, spouse
  • I am afraid I’ll get sick
  • I fear emotional pain
  • I fear other people
  • I am afraid God will punish me
  • I am afraid to take a chance

Ok, you get the idea. Take from this list what is true for you and keep going. Keep going and do not stop until all your fears, great and small, are written down on paper.

Tomorrow I’ll share with you how I dealt with my list of fears.

Love,

DAY 246: Awareness Helps You Heal

awareness

Make a list: write down all your fears about your well-being, health and the future.

Don’t shy away from any of them; put them down on paper. Bring them up from deep inside yourself, and allow the sheet of paper to hold them. I will show you what to do next, but first, take the time to do this.

Even if it’s scary, do it. Even if you feel like running away, do it. Even if you feel like you never want to read this blog again, do it. This is just your fears talking, trying to stop you from healing your body.

Become aware of how afraid you really are is the first step in the healing process.

So take some time, allow your fears to surface and then write them down.

Tomorrow I’ll tell you what to do with the list.

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 245: What Do You Fear?

fear

Factual fear is based on things that are clearly dangerous, like venturing into a rough part of town alone after dark, like going swimming in a big storm, like driving a car you know is unsafe to drive; is the actual “fight or flight response”. This fear is a powerful mechanism that keeps us safe and out of danger.

Imaginary fear on the other hand, is, as the name clearly states: IMAGINED. There are no absolute facts in it, except the ones fabricated by the mind to justify the fear. Thoughts such as: “What if it does not work?”, “What if I cannot heal?”, “What if this gets worse”, “What if I will be disabled by this (whatever it may be: you low back, a hip degeneration, terrible migraines, pain)”?.

You do not know as a clear fact that you will not get better, that you will not heal.

Why don’t you say instead: “What is this works? What if I can get better? What if I just need to let go of fear and start stating the opposite? What if I can fully heal?”

From now on, choose to shift your mind from your imaginary fears. Be very diligent about it. In order to change a habit of thought you simply repeat the new thought pattern until IT becomes the new habit.

DAY 244: Fear Does Not Let You Heal

fear

Fear is everywhere. People take their first dose of daily fear with their morning coffee, while watching the news, reading the newspaper or listening to the car radio on their way to work. They start to feel the fists of fear in their guts right after brushing their teeth in the morning.

The truth is that fear sells. It is also true that for every sad and disconcerting thing that we hear about in the news, there is a beautiful, uplifting and empowering thing that is happening somewhere in the world in the exact same time. Unfortunately, that would not sell, so the accent is put on what sells: tragedy, pain, and fear.

A continuous stream of fear-creating news is bombarding us all day long.

Fear helps sell medication, invasive procedures and dangerous treatments.

What do you fear with respect to your health?

Ponder on this until tomorrow.

Love,

DAY 243: Why You Must Keep Searching

health

If in this very moment you are struggling with with pain, illness or lack of vitality you must keep searching for the solution; not for someone else’s solution for you, but for YOUR solution.

You are the ultimate expert when it comes to your body, your mind, your well-being and your health.

Once you understand that vibrant health is your BIRTHRIGHT, you become the captain of your health ship. And as the captain, you are in charge. You know how to employ the right team to achieve your goals.

Health is a life long commitment.

Joseph Pilates used to say that “Health is the first prerequisite for happiness.”

It is.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 242: First ELDOA lecture under my belt

Pic before lecture

I took this pick just before the lecture. It was a great night at the Vancouver Pilates Centre: 35 people attended my presentation and some stayed for the demo ELDOA class.

One person came to thank me at the end, saying that finally she understood what fascia is. Another person wanted to tell me that now she knows that she can heal and does not feel desperate for a solution anymore.

Quite a few of the attendees are considering signing up for the ELDOA 1 course in July.

My first official ELDOA lecture was a great success!

I am grateful.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 240: Taking ELDOA to Vancouver

ELDOA in Vancouver

Look what greeted me yesterday on a large blackboard at Vancouver Pilates Center. This is where I came 18 years ago to learn about Classical Pilates and healing the body through movement.

It is such an honor to spend two days here doing a lecture on ELDOA, teaching ELDOA classes and working with clients one on one.

My lecture tonight is entitled “THE SOLUTION FOR THE BACK PAIN  EPIDEMIC” and precedes the ELDOA 1 Course that I will be teaching here in July.

I am excited!

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 239: ELDOA

possible

Given the current “chronic” back pain epidemic, what is the REAL power of ELDOA?

ELDOA helps the body reinvent itself healthier and healthier every year.

ELDOA creates space in the joints of the body. It fights gravity.

Are you doing ELDOA yet?

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 238: Tired Of Neck Pain?

neck pain

Are you suffering from constant neck pain? I am talking about pain that turned chronic.

This is the ugly truth of why you are still suffering: there is a vicious cycle that creates pain in your body. You CAN heal, but with so much conflicting advice about what it takes to become pain free, it’s hard to know where to start and sometimes you end up doing things that will hinder your healing process.

Many people get overwhelmed and eventually give up. They give up believing that they can heal. It doesn’t have to be that way! I want to show what you can do in order to start healing. My clients are consistently amazed at how I find the right solutions for them and help them heal.

If you suffer from chronic pain and you’re ready to heal once and for all, click here: http://bit.ly/bodystrategy.

Here’s the deal: when it comes to healing your body one size DOES NOT fit all. This is why I want to talk with you directly and show you what the best steps are FOR YOU.

My proven method for healing chronic pain is simple, efficient and easy to follow. But it does not work for everyone, because not everyone has what it takes to follow through.

Your healing is YOUR responsibility.

It takes a special person with a “do whatever it takes” attitude to really get results. Let’s face it, realigning and healing your body will take SOME effort on your part. That requires commitment and if you’re committed I’d love to help you!
