What is your #1 medicine?
Posted on July 17, 2018
What do you do when you need to recharge?
What is your #1 medicine when you feel stressed, overworked, tired, or down?
Well, mine is the Ocean.
The Ocean recharges me every time.
Every time I am feeling down, tired, worried, overworked, or meh. It works. It recharges me.
At first, I doubt it. I resist it.
I wonder: “really? will it work this time?” “Shall I even bother?”
And then, as soon as I go BY or, even better, IN the Ocean, whether I put my feet or my full body in, I start feeling better.
The water washes my worries away.
The other day, I was feeling “meh.”
I knew deep down my body needed water.
But I resisted it at first. “Really? It’s a long drive. Why bother? Are you sure it’s worth it?”
I had the choice to go in a lake on my way back to the AirBnB I was staying at or to drive longer and go to the Ocean.
Despite my doubts, resistance, and the longer drive, I ended up choosing the Ocean.
I am SO glad I did.
It worked. Of course. It always does (at least 99% of the time)
I went in the Ocean. I swam and enjoyed feeling the water on my body for about 30 minutes.
And the magic happened. Again.
I went out and I was feeling refreshed and energized again.
Walnut Beach (Connecticut) – a few days before the wedding of my dear friend Stephanie.
After, I was so energized that I was feeling inspired to write.
Yes, the Ocean also helps me find my inspiration again.
Water and the Ocean are my BEST medicine. By far.
What is your medicine? What recharges you?
Even if you resist it at first.
and wonder: “Why bother?”
Only YOU know what it is.
Deep down YOU know.
And it is important that you know and use it.
NOBODY can do it for you, even the best healer.
You are your best healer.
Your best medicine woman, your best medicine man.
Are you listening to your inner healer?
Are you using your medicine?
The medIcine for your spirit, mind, and body.
GO and DO IT. NOW.
And write in the comments! I want to hear what is your medicine.
