I'm SICK of being SICK!

The Gift by Xene Abraham
The title of this post was determined late in January 2018 after a series of illnesses forced me to consider more seriously the study of homeopathic remedies. It seemed as though I was really sick all the time.  Something was wrong;  even though labs and blood work showed an example of perfect health, I was sick too often.  My plan was to blog the results of holistic experiments in an effort to avoid illness.

My friends on social media were also reporting sickness at an alarming frequency so I knew I was not alone in this quest to live healthier. There are nearly endless options to explore:  diet, essential oils, acupuncture, chiropractic care, massage therapy, exercise, yoga and many spiritual practices that reportedly increase overall health; I had to do something and if I was going to explore, my plan was to  share the journey.

So I did something, but clearly I dropped the ball on blogging it; I created art instead. I had attended university on a full-tuition scholarship for art but when motherhood came along, I nearly abandoned art to dedicate all my energy to raising a family.

Art unlocked something within me that had been both suppressed and oppressed all those years. 

I could hear my inner voice when I painted. If I let the voice lead the brush, the paintings came to life. If I doubted and fought the natural instinct by 'overthinking it' the art suffered. The more time I spent painting, the stronger I could hear the voice and I began to question "why I was not listening to it all the time?" 

So I made a decision to listen to my intuition as often as possible in all things. My inner voice was changing me for the better on everything from how I dealt with and identified conflict, to how I ate (I am now vegetarian with a strong desire for veganism.) Obviously, PiX FiZ has been a food blog up to this point, so I knew how to cook, but if I listened to my intuition, the food was better too.  I was on to something but I didn't understand any of it until I was turned on to the teachings of Eckhart Tolle. Ah ha! Art brought me into the Present! Every single thing Eckhart said made complete sense.

I devoured all I could from Eckhart and then turned to Deepak Chopra. I have so much left to learn, but I now believe, no wait, I have a KNOWING that I will be well. Several times this season already I have felt the tinge of a sore throat, or a tingling of a cold sore trying to erupt but I turned my thinking toward the positive and reminded this water bag of a body that surrounds my beautiful soul that it could heal itself. It has so far, and I believe that it will, perhaps forever.

I am new on this journey, but so many are seeking in this direction that I have been compelled to write about how I am navigating this new found mindful practice. Perhaps I will end up posting guest articles about homeopathic remedies that aid improved health, but for now I am going to let intuition guide what shows up here.

My name is Xene and I am going to do a better job blogging.
