Reflexology and Una Lección Español….

My feet are tingling; they have been run upon and spa ed and reflexologied… They have had a lot of activity and attention and now they are tingling…

My lovely feet; I love them so much.

I know I have said this before but it is like they are two little separate entities who reside with me… Two ‘beings’ who I look after (sort of!) as they surge forward having found their freedom, enjoying expressing themselves and being visible for the world to see…

Of course I know they are not separate, I know they are part of me… Reflecting on this brings into sharp relief the illusion we have of being separate…

It is useful – and fun – this illusion, because it is giving us our human experience on planet earth. It gives us the opportunity to fully know ourselves – to see ourselves reflected in others, and in all the events and situations in our life…  But – many people do actually believe themselves to be separate…

Imagine the chaos if I truly believed I were separate to my feet…

This is why we have some chaos on our planet… Because rather than seeing the illusion for what it is, and recognising and understanding that we can become whole here in human form – that we can clear away all that hides us from ourselves… Instead we start to blame others for our lack, our pain, our sadness and difficulty,  and this drives a bigger wedge into the very core of ourselves…

My feet are my own metaphor ? And they are also leading me on a journey who knows where… ?

Today I ran 8 miles bringing this week’s total to 58 miles… Only 2 miles off the 60 miles I had set… During the week I had felt a slight ‘push stress’ coming into my energy field, and I know from years and years of experience that this heralds a time to back off… Building the emotional and physical energy is vital when preparing for any event, or project and this comes through being able to carry on….

So on Wednesday night I let go of ‘going for 60’ and even though now, it could look like ‘why didn’t you just run that extra 2 miles’, I know now how important not doing the two miles was, in building the energy for next week and my training ongoing…

In the past, deep inside I always knew what was needed, but the energy of struggle and self destruct were yet to be cleared… And so they played out again and again. I learned then that knowing and mentally understanding a pattern were not enough… I needed to clear away the energy that meant I would go marching towards the misery of the inevitable exhaustion and disappointment… And in clearing it, the difference is so very subtle; but so very life changing…

It was through letting go of any mileage objectives a year ago that has brought me now to be training as much and as well as I am… It took nine whole months, until my feet and my body ‘took off’ by themselves in July and 40 miles emerged in a week, without any plan….

And so today instead of any more running, I went to the spa and sploshed into hot and cold; sat in the steam, felt my body rejuvenate and then lay on a couch having wonderful foot massage reflexology…
