Dear Wellness Seekers,
Spanista Philosophy Belief #4, Synchronicity Through Spa Therapy is really where it all comes together to create the positive results you want. As I shared in my first two posts ‘My Story’, I discovered through much experimentation that we need help to align our mind-body and heart in the moment. Going it alone is futile because it only gets us so far. Why stop there when you can take it to the next level to connect with your true nature – the source of a happier and healthier lifestyle? Lucky for us there is evidence in multiple cultures especially in Asia going back centuries that points to the sources. They are GIFTS of genuine relief from Natures’ healing ways and Human guidance and healing hands of Spa Therapists. Both are at our disposal but we do not realize the important role they can play in our lives. We need to charge of our human condition and get smart about these solutions.
Addressing this issue is the heart of Spanista Philosophy Belief #4: The power to feel and live better lies with the ability to sync physical, emotional and mental capacities in the moment and through Reflection and Ritual Practices, both personally and in partnership with professional Spa Therapists.
If you are like me, a busy career and lifestyle comes with loads of outside influences and distractions that keep your head full of Agenda items, leaving no room for exploring Self Care Education. Too bad they do not teach about these tools in school so you have to make time to discover it for yourself. But who has time? So that external Agenda takes over your life so soon you feel that you are living by forces outside your control and unconsciously your body, heart and mind quietly begin to resent it. Other people’s needs take precedence.
Unexpected circumstances can change your life on a daily basis. You feel the pressure of long-standing obligations. In you take a step back to see the big picture, you realize you are living to the expectations of others. Some things on the Agenda maybe appropriate and make you happy while others may have simply gotten out of control and you may not have realized it. Suddenly out of what seems like the blue, you get that uneasy feeling in your body. You feel detached from reality – or what I call ‘My Out Of Body Experience’. It is when I feel like a ‘drone’, run by technology, hovering over my life watching it unfold as if I was viewing myself in a movie. Within days the resulting effect becomes physical – perhaps you show early signs of a cold, start getting tension headaches or your back starts to spasm or you get up one morning and your neck muscle snaps so you cannot move it. This list of health issues goes on. That is REAL pain. But know it stems from emotion in YOU.
If these kinds of things have a reoccurring pattern in your life-like they did mine, then they are real symptoms of lifestyle issues. For years I ignored them – I was raised in a time when we were taught to push through them. Not to be soft. Especially if you were a working woman. To be respected as one of the guys you could not show any signs weakness – you simply pushed on. Unfortunately, today for men and women we know the effects of pushing through it without relief – it can manifest in serious addictions, in depression and/or transform into disease which can have devastating effects. Does any of this sound familiar to you?
Spanista is about being proactive. Taking charge of your lifestyle to be happy and healthy. Putting yourself and your Self Care first by regularly planning Reflection and Ritual Practices into your Spanista Lifestyle Agenda will get you in sync physically, emotionally and mentally. This puts you back in touch with your inner truth in the moment. It is with the help of healing hands of Spa Therapists and what we bring to the experience that helps us find a new level of happiness.
