Susan’s Playlists for June 3 – 6, 2013: Non-Worrying & Self Healing

worrying woman 2Non-worrying and self-healing are about kindness:
• kindness to the body by moving joints with the intent to increase pleasure,
• kindness to the mind by putting attention on the present (rather than creating a smoking catastrophe of a future),
• kindness to the emotions by using the language of healing (“I am healing” rather than “I am sick” and “My foot is healing” rather than “My stupid foot is hurt.”).

My shoulder is healing from something (maybe too many Wheels in yoga) right now. So all week, I’ve been using the three-part practice of (1) noticing pain or discomfort (without spiraling into worry!), (2) stimulating that place with movement and then (3) noticing if it feels better or not. (If it feels even a little better for even a little while, that’s healing! Woo Hoo! And it’s worth celebrating these acts of kindness that we can offer ourselves any time.) I’ve noticed more pleasure in my shoulder and I also notice that healing is neither a linear nor a logical process. What feels good today, might not tomorrow, so self-healing requires a spirit of curiosity and experimentation. It’s all fascinating and worth doing. If you’ve had some healing happen this week, I’d love to hear about it.

In the meantime, here are the playlists for classes this week!  In particular, this week, it was great to go back to the very first routine I ever learned, Sanctuary, with the music of Adiemus:  Songs of Sanctuary by the London Philharmonic with vocals by Miriam Stockley.  It’s a beautiful body of work and I love sharing it.   (Huge thanks to Kristin vTh for transferring some old routines onto DVD so I (and we!) can revisit them.  So thank you for making that possible.)

As always, let me know how I can help more.
Love,
Susan

  1. Thanks so much for your insight and positivity Susan. In particular, this spoke to me today…“Worrying is praying for something you don’t want.” – Bhagavan Das

    Amen!
