Summer Time

I love summer, it reminds me of my cherished childhood with countless outdoor pleasures - playing, climbing and running like athletes with limitless energy.

We also learned new songs and picked the neighbour’s flowers for the Flores de Mayo in the parish.

 I also remember enjoying mouthwatering summer fruits and cones of ice cream.

But most of all there were the Sunday family excursions to the beach.

Yes, that was summer with its pure outdoor pleasures. Now I thank my summer for giving me a wonderful time for wellness.

This year our summer came like a whisper. It was gone before one got used to the sounds and sights of a summer day. Indeed, it was gone too soon.

Here’s a motivational message for the summer’s end and for the beginning of a new colourful season - autumn.

“Time For Wellness
A Self-Healing Day

Human beings carry within themselves the seed of healing. Our choices affect us more than we realize, and it is because of this that we tend to place responsibility for our wellness in the hands of others. As beneficial as regular visits to a healer can be, we have the power to heal ourselves at will.

When we dedicate a day to the pursuit of wellness, we can relax and renew ourselves in a nourishing and comfortable environment. A sincere desire to open ourselves to the highest realities of our physical and spiritual selves is the key to self-healing so that healing energy can flow into us unimpeded.

A self-healing day should address the vital needs of the self as a whole while directing healing energy where it is needed most. Solitude is an important part of the process as is the ability to take refuge in a space that is both beautiful and peaceful.

Start your healing day by setting the intention that you are dedicating this time to healing yourself. Flowers, candlelight, incense, and music can guide our focus toward a more tranquil state. For a more intense session, try listening to music through headphones since tuning out can help you tune in.

It is up to us to decide what we need to do to cultivate wellness in our lives. For some, it may be time spent in reflection. Others will turn to calming activities that help them remember their purpose, such as journal writing, being in nature, or studying. Our healing may even take a more direct form as we use color, sound, or crystals to balance and ground ourselves.

Ultimately, your wholesome intentions transform what might otherwise be a simple day of rest into a day of healing. Grant yourself permission to relax and savor the stillness. If you attune yourself to the calm around you, worldly distractions will be minimized and the unadulterated flow of your consciousness will reestablish itself in the forefront of your mind.

The needs of the body, the heart, and the soul will then be revealed to you, empowering you to tap into the essential healing energy of the universe. The mechanism you use to channel this energy will be dependent on your shifting requirements, so each day of healing you enjoy will be unique. All will replenish you, however, allowing you to recreate yourself in a perfect image of health.”

Finally, let’s sit back, relax and enjoy this soothing
