Fall Back Into Self-Care
By Dr. Phyllis Hubbard
Health is not only a physical phenomenon. Real heath has to happen somewhere inside you, in your subjectivity, in your consciousness, because consciousness knows no birth, no death, it is eternal. ॐ Osho ☥
About Falling …
When I look back on my life thus far, I can reflect upon the many situations that I have fallen into. As a child, I fell into illness because of a trauma I experienced that became the precursor for a 27-year bout with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). My quest to heal myself caused me to fall into yoga which helped me to shift my perceptions, reduce muscle tension and calm my mind. Yoga heightened the awareness of my body to the point that I recognized a spinal imbalance and before I knew it, I had fallen into Chiropractic Care. My determination to stop the persistent cough pushed me past my fears until I fell into Ayurvedic practice which liberated me from COPD and inspired me to become a healer.
I learned that holistic health began when the ancient wise sages noticed that all that exists in nature are affected by nature. The leaves fall from the trees, bears hibernate, snakes shed their skin, winter becomes spring, spring becomes summer and then the summer falls.
The wise sages realized that we are deeply affected by transitions that occur in nature including the time of day, lunar cycles, and the seasons.
