If you haven't heard of it, EEM works with the body's physical, energetic, and emotional systems through the use of ancient techniques most familiar to us as in Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and kinesiology. In non-invasive and gentle ways, it helps you rebalance and harmonize back to your original self. Whether the desire is to support overall health or related to a specific concern like pain, reoccurring illness or life scheme, anxiety, or poor sleep, EEM is a great toolset. It's quite amazing how subtle energies flow and I agree with a common response of "wow, that was really cool". I hope you'll take advantage of this new addition to 8 limbs Holistic Health, LLC. Many of you have already experienced the power of this work and I am grateful for your love and trust.
After Phoenix I spent some amazing days in Sedona with three of my best energy buds, embracing the energy of this special place and getting even more connected to these lovely ladies. Shopping for crystals, hiking the terrain, doing Tai Chi at the vortexes in Boynton Canyon, and going horseback riding were some of our adventures but, most importantly, was just spending time with one another.
It's interesting that, beyond the desire to bring forth this energy work, each one of us is coming from a different place in our lives and has a completely different rhythm energy of how we approach the world. As well, four females in one room for five days every three months...there's bound to be some major issues, yet really there weren't. We've always been able to love and support one another, to see the gifts that each offers, and to appreciate the awarenesses that are created when we don't necessarily mesh in the moment. It's also been quite lovely to see how each one of us has strengthened over these past two years as we've shared and practiced this energy medicine with one another. Our systems are cleaner and clearer, allowing each one of us to be more solid and grounded in our true essence. It's been really quite wonderful.
Reflecting on this 'tribe', I look around my life and see others that have come together as well. My Sangha of Buddhists and mindfulness practitioners, my kids and family, and the close friends that I cherish deeply. I also have the group of supporters who took care of my house while I was gone; plowing my driveway, checking my house daily for mechanical disruptions, transporting me to and from the airport, and checking in with me on a regular basis. It's wonderful to have these communities, especially for me where my beginning life felt isolated and alone, invisible.
Who are the tribes in your life? How are you taken care of and supported, not in a co-dependent way but in a shared and nurtured way, where your authentic self is safe to grow and develop? While I love my time alone, community is a vital part of my personal joy. It keeps me vibrant and feeling alive. We are social beings and sharing this humanity is an important piece in getting to know ourselves. Our essence is reflected back when we are with others. And in return, we offer a bit of ourselves to provide companionship, caring, and presence for another.
Your tribe doesn't have to be large or distinct. It can be made up of your neighbors, a pet, part of a community service network, or coworkers. It can be one person who you can rely on to be there at 2:00am should the need arise.
As we enter the month of Love (our calendar's way of opening us up during the cold of winter), seek out your community and reconnect if the dark days have kept you sheltered and inside. Notice the blessings they provide in simply being there and take care to nurture them back as you've been nurtured. Take note of how you've become a better being because of them and offer lots of gratitude. I know I've been graced with your presence and am deeply grateful for this tribe.
And always feel invited to gather in community at 8 limbs Holistic Health. Classes, workshops, and events are always happening so feel free to join and create more tribe energy. It brings joy and supports all of us when you do.
With many blessings for peaceful days,
