In his book Magical Aromatherapy, Scott Cunningham points out that prevention is better than intervention - if we work to maintain our resilience, and spot signs of trouble early, we reduce the need for dramatic action if something goes wrong. Resilience has popped up on Reclaiming Your Sacred Path since we started in December, and this week we will discuss it in a different way.
My guest on Tuesday, March 6 at 6PM Pacific time is Dr. David Ramaley, a Naturopathic physician and Chiropractor. As you probably know, both those disciplines encourage – even require – that we take charge of our own well being, supported by those we consult. Dr. Ramaley will be discussing a number of ways we can do just that.
While this seems to be a conversation about physical well being (and it is), it goes much deeper. As I see it, taking charge of our own well being is really the same process as reclaiming our sacred path, our life purpose. It requires us to change our focus from what’s wrong to what’s possible, decide what matters most to us and act on it, and get support for the stresses of the journey. To paraphrase Hermes Trismagustus, taking charge of our physical and emotional well being is the “Below” and reclaiming our autonomous relationship with Spirit is the “Above” in the principle of correspondence – “As above, so below.”
Chances are, taking charge of the life we want (or not) in one of these areas will have corresponding effects in the other. So when we think about needing to be as physically well as possible to really pursue our Spiritual and aspirational path, we are correct. But it isn’t just about having the energy and stamina to do it – that’s part of it. But the act of taking control of what we can control, and releasing the rest, can begin in either dimension. The inspiration of an inner sense of purpose can motivate us to make the necessary physical and emotional changes in our lives. Making the physical and emotional changes then clears the space for Spiritual growth.
