I used to think that being healthy meant absence of illness or disease. I was always conscious of foods that were ‘good’ or ‘bad’ for you and prided myself on the fact that at seventy-three, I had never had any major illness and did not require any of the normal medications people my age usually have prescribed for them.
Living in this manner left me with an unease and an anxiousness that could never quite be quelled. I judged myself harshly and whatever I did never left me with a feeling of achievement. Although I thought I was ‘healthy’, I never experienced any sense of wellbeing and I never felt any appreciation of what I had done, or was capable of.
It wasn’t until I came to the understanding of the wisdom of the body, as presented by Serge Benhayon, that I began, slowly at first, to consider incorporating some of the Universal Medicine modalities into my daily life.
I have found Esoteric Yoga and the Pelvic Floor Exercises extremely beneficial, as they are super simple to do, and have brought to me a new awareness of the true intelligence that is communicated through my body when I connect with it and act on the signals it is relaying.
I am beginning to feel the exquisiteness and the level of gentleness and caring that is possible and growing day by day, along with the sense of wellbeing that my connection with my body is calling me to.
I am blessed that at this stage in my life, I feel as though I am going against the trend that we are seeing within our society today. It seems to me that most people my age expect their health and sense of wellbeing to diminish as the years go by, whilst for me, I am experiencing more confidence, and a sense of joy-full anticipation of what may unfold.
As I strengthen my connection with me, I peel back the layers of self-doubt to reveal and trust the beauty and tenderness that resides within and I look forward with appreciation to the years ahead.
This is now my new-found understanding of health and wellbeing and not the absence of illness or disease.
