The FLU :(

Sorry there was no post yesterday :( Somehow, my eight month old and three year old both contracted the H1N1 virus. I know it sounds scary, but let me tell you about how AMAZING their little bodies are. Zoe, my eight month old must have had it first. She ran a fever for about two days (which is one of the  ways the body gets rid of 'impurities'). She rested, I gave her reiki, green juice, coconut water, and love and now....the flu is gone! My three year old Zaria's body completely rejected the virus. She ran a fever for about a day and vomitted once (her body's way of getting the toxic virus out of her system). After that her fever spiked for a few more hours and then.....the flu was gone! I took them both to pediatrician yesterday and the doctors were amazed at how well their little bodies were handling the virus. Now they're immune! They didn't need a poisonous vaccination shot. I wanted to mention this simply because many people choose to infuse themselves with vaccinations that have all sorts of toxic ingredients when it's really unneccessary if we take care of our bodies the way that we should. It doesn't mean that we'll never become ill. But when we do, our bodies can function in the way that they're supposed to.

*mission of the week*

I hope you guys have been moooving. Don't forget that this week we are expressing ourselves through tantric motion. I've been doing yoga every morning and am definately noticing the effects, particularly in my mood and my capacity for the 'not so cool' things like cleaning, laundry, bills, and other monotonous 'adult' responsibilities. I have more energy as well. This morning as I came into my practice, I bgan to really 'feel myself'. In every pose, I would take a moment to notice what my body felt like in that particular moment. I allowed my mind to become intricately intimate with my body and realized that I have reached a new level of my practice. It didn't seem to be just a series of postures or a few moments of relaxation anymore. It was a time of inner reflection and a chance to deepen my relationship with me. I hope that you all find a way to keep your energy flowing and connect with your bodies!
