Grateful to Bike!

Gratitude_ornament - from shiningsungardenworks I just came back from my first bicycle ride since slamming head first into glass (while running) on July 4.  I'm so excited and grateful that I could get on my beloved bike again.

At the beginning of the week, I was struck by dizziness and ferocious headaches. Then, I held five episodes on my Gab with the Gurus Radio Show about gratitude with 21 amazing experts. Get details about the shows here.

In addition, I saw my wonderful acupuncturist for the sixth time. (I call him my "miracle worker."

Plus, I kept repeating this affirmation recommended by the renowned, inspirational, self-help author Louise Hay to use whenever there is a problem. I've been saying over and over again, as she suggests:

"All is well. Everything is working out for my highest good. Out of this experience, only good will come and I am safe."

Now, here I am at the end of the week able to begin exercising again. I've been on doctor-ordered rest for a while, which meant "no exercising." (Ugh! Something that's been a challenge.)

Granted, now I'm pooped out big time — I even had to take some stops along the way to rest — my head is now throbbing, aching, hurting and I need to lie down — but I suspect that I'm feeling better because :

  1. I've been expressing gratitude a lot 
  2. I've been very focused on gratitude all week because of my five radio shows
  3. I've been stating the affirmations Louise Hay recommends
  4. I've been seeing my acupuncturist.
  5. I've been listening over and over again to a healing download from my hypnotist friend Debra Berndt.

What do you think? Why do I feel better?

And have you ever relied on gratitude to get you out of pain or a mess?

P.S. I just finished lying down, falling asleep while listening to my healing download, and my head is only mildly achy! How exciting! 

All I can say is I highly recommend that you try my five-pronged approach when you're in emotional or physical pain.

  1. Connie, I’m glad to hear you’re feeling a bit better! Do take it easy, though; follow those doctor’s orders, okay? 🙂
    What a great week of shows. I’ve shared them and heard some great feedback about the week from friends.
    Naturally, I have relied–always relied, in fact–on gratitude to lift, motivate and inspire me. Among thousands of examples is my ability to kick a 10-plus year smoking habit. Once my level of gratitude for my strong, healthy body had reached the level of “honor” (in the concept of “recognize, affirm and honor” about which I talk) I simply could no longer dishonor it by acting to destroy it. It was as simple as that: acting with honor and intention from a deep sense of gratitude. No struggle, just put the stupid things down and don’t pick them up again. When we act from a place of deep appreciation we don’t feel deprived.
    Love to you 🙂
