Day 56, Reason 56: Today I am over the moon at how listening to my body and my intuition is speeding up the healing process.
In the past, when I’ve suffered from these frequent sore throat infections, I’ve been really ill and confined to bed for weeks. But today, after only 48 hours of feeling rough, I have noticed a significant improvement in my health. 🙂 My sore throat is nearly gone and, although I still have a low grade fever, the aches and pains of yesterday have all but vanished. Anybody who knows me will tell you that this really is incredible for me to recover so quickly!
There is no doubt in my mind that The Pollyanna Plan has a huge part to play in this latest development. As I’m becoming increasingly more positive about my health, I’m starting to pay closer attention to what my body is telling me. For example, this afternoon, I went for my customary nap, but even though I woke after 45 minutes, I stayed in bed resting, as I felt that is what my body needed. Usually, I would stress and feel guilty about staying in bed when I should be getting on with things, but not today.
Now, let me rewind to last night. After I published yesterday’s blog post, I read a very interesting post by Inspiration Energy on the Oprah & Deepak 21 Day Meditation Challenge. I keep hearing all this great stuff about meditation, but I really didn’t know how to get started, so I clicked on the link and signed up for the challenge. It began on 11th March, but free registration remains open for the full 21 days.
As I needed to start from the beginning, I did the first two meditations last night. I found it really difficult, as my mind behaves like a naughty child – refusing to sit still, hopping about from one thought to the next and blowing raspberries at me when I try to keep it in line. Even when I did manage to focus on the daily mantra for a few seconds, I started thinking, “Oh cool, I’m meditating now!” It’s not easy, that’s for sure, but, I’m well aware that practice makes perfect and I shall keep going.
So, this afternoon, I sat down to do the next two meditations, and I was amazed to discover that they focused upon listening to your body and your intuition. It was exactly what I’d been doing and thinking about today.
