Fall: Focusing the Flow

“The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shouts in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of life and death, in ebb and flow.”Rabindranath Tagore

Infinity gives itself away as the reality of every moment. Everything is moving, constantly changing; life is always evolving. The universal flow of energy shapes, transforms, and forever unfolds. There is only one event: the song of the universe and the music of unfolding creation. The entire cosmos dances the dance of creation, the song of life.

While listening and watching an organ player, I was totally mesmerized by the complexity of hand and foot movements required to harmonize the sounds coming from 6000 organ pipes. Despite the concentration, practice and expertise required to move his four limbs independently, he was not stiff, there was only supple surrender to the beauty flowing through him. Surrendering to what we love is surrendering to life.

Surrendering to What We Love Is Allowing Life to Flow Through Us, Unimpeded

This may not seem the case as we leave the freedom and “boundary-lessness” of summer vacations and move into the fall environment of school, structure, and society. Yet, this transition is simply one of going from “free-flow” to “focused-flow”. It is in the focused flow that we learn to sing the song of the universe. Our work, practice, and studies are ways of focusing the energy flowing through us into something concrete. It is only when they are interpreted as things to validate our self that we feel stressed and block the flow. The more attached we are to our sense of self, our status and image, the less we flow, the less we adapt, the more stressed we feel.

And if we are stuck in stress, our little mitochondria are impeded in their role as gateways between our inner and outer environments. (For more details, see the article “The Noumedynamic Human” in the Resources Section.)

We then become unsuitably vulnerable to even the mildest of stressors. Our bodies over-react to delays, food substances, particles in the air, and micro-organisms and display symptoms such as asthma, hay fever, coughs, ear infections, throat infections, insomnia, flu or flu symptoms.

What to Do

Catch yourself when you become stiff and stressed, remind yourself about the flow of life – often just a quick glance at nature will help bring you back to reality. Bring your awareness to your breath, to the very moment that the breath begins, and experience the fact that you are “being breathed” by the universe.

The adaptation required for getting back to the rhythm of school and work is a natural stress that causes necessary changes in our organism. However, the struggle to adapt can also bring on all kinds of dis-ease, such as anxiety, digestive complaints, allergies acting up, headaches. If so, consider coming to our Intern Clinic. It is an incredible opportunity to receive top notch homeopathic care at a very affordable price. Click here to learn more about our Intern Clinic. It is amazing what we can help with. Read the inspiring stories of the people who came during our last Intern Clinic. This month, you can find out about the following successful cases:

1. A student who had recurring headaches at school;
2. Another student who had debilitating irritable bowel syndrome, which, after homeopathic intervention, has never recurred in over 3 years of follow-ups;
3. A CEGEP student missing school due to anxiety;
4. A high school student who wanted to drop out due to anxiety.

Watch for the Fall newsletter on September 15th for the links to these and other articles that provide many ways that Homeopathy has helped individuals “get back into the flow”. Take a look at our Tip of the Month on how to change your diet with the change of seasons, or Carla’s article on how to prepare your immune system for the fall. If you have not signed up for our newsletter, you can by clicking here.

With the help of homeopathy, energy is allowed to flow through the entire organism unimpeded. The mitochondria are assisted in their role of assuring our full ability to adapt and our full potential to evolve.

In the words of an ancient Chinese proverb: “Worms will not eat living wood where the vital sap is flowing; rust will not hinder the opening of a gate when the hinges are used each day. Movement gives health and life. Stagnation brings disease and death.”
