Well, I’ve been incredibly busy having a great time, which is part of my New Year’s Resolutions. I’m dancing NIA five days a week with an occasional weekend workshop thrown in. I rarely think about my bones any more except to appreciate how strong they are. In fact next week I’m going to try out a class I just found out about on learning trapeze and aerial gymnastics.
So you can see why I’ve been a little remiss in writing in this blog lately. I’m also in the middle of creating a new website selling dance clothing! I found there was very little clothing suitable for women of my age who take up dance and NIA, for one, is full of women over 50. So I made myself some clothes and people liked them and now I’m starting something new.
I love getting into new areas of interest and, when I focus my attention on something new, the Universe always brings me whatever I’m thinking about. Do you notice that in your life? It’s the Law of Attraction in action.
Anyway, back to resolutions; I’m being good again and cutting the sugar and wheat back out of my diet. I totally lost control since Thanksgiving. What’s funny is that I was clean for 5 days and then a visitor brought me an almond croissant and I felt so bad after I ate it that it reminded me how bad sugar is for me. If I had continued to eat it that effect would have disappeared from my attention as usual.
My BIG resolution this year though is to love myself totally. You probably know by now that I use the Abraham-Hicks principles to make my life more joyful and he always says the most important thing is to feel good. Check out youtube for numerous videos.
The more I can stream love into my life the better I feel. It’s totally working for me. There is no point in trying to love someone else when you don’t love yourself. I remembered that one of the things I did long ago when I started my bone journey was to love my bones. It’s counter-productive to think those fear thoughts that the drug-pushers are trying to make you think. Just appreciate the bones you have and then dream big. I dreamed of doing backbends again like I did when I was a kid and I’m doing it!
Your mind/body/Spirit wants to give you exactly what you want and the only way it can tell what you want is what you spend most of your time thinking about. If you think of collapsing bones then that’s what it will give you. Luckily there is a lag time in the creation so you can change your thoughts now before they get manifested. If you can’t think happy thoughts about your bones then just change the subject and get happy some other way, pet your dog or hug your friends.
So I think I will pass the baton of bone research on to the Betterbones blog. Susan does great research and explains clearly what it all means. She’s had some great articles lately. She doesn’t get into the mind/body connection but that’s kind of risky for a researcher. People tend to think you are nuts if you talk about that. I’m so happy being nuts that I recommend you give it a try. Appreciate your bones just as they are every day, and then visualize yourself radiantly healthy, doing something you’ve always dreamed of doing but never really thought you would.
Maybe I’ll see you hanging from a trapeze someday,
