My understanding of wellness is that it’s a whole-body experience. A state of complete physical, mental, and emotional well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. It’s an experience of being at ease with oneself and the world around us.
Wellness is a constant process that needs to be monitored and tweaked moment by moment. It’s not a quick fix, and it’s never all done; it commands the ability to be present to the body in the moment.
Wellness is a journey, a continuum, an ongoing process that changes slowly over time. It’s an active pursuit where we make endless choices about emotional, physical and mental experiences. The journey builds on what already has been healed. The choice to heal shows up day to day and hour by hour.
The wellness journey is an individual journey where we must take responsibility for our being and what we think, feel, and behave. Those who engage take self – responsibility, owning that the process begins and ends with themselves. Our world reflects our wounds back to us. The world, or my experience of it, is not what I have control over. My power lies in taking responsibility for how I react to what is being asked of me. How it makes me feel is where my learning lies.
Addressing these wounds is the root of wellness.
The journey and our awareness on that road of awakening become more open and exciting and liberating the farther you go on this journey.
The wellness journey is a continuum, not a destination,
I believe that the root of all illness is unacknowledged and unhealed emotion.
Self-responsibility is becoming an expert in knowing oneself, empowering you to listen to your body, what it says to you, and addressing the issues it brings to your attention. The body doesn’t communicate in words but in feelings, pains or aches. And if it goes unacknowledged, it gives us illness.
Finding the space necessary to heal will help you unlock your capacity for self-healing.
Stepping in to the journey, acknowledge what has been asked of you and allow life to guide you to where you need to go.
