Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Go-GO YOGA! (Week 4)

Okay, so this week . . . not so good for me.  I went to yoga class last week, even though I had a twinge of back pain in my low back.  I just felt a little stiff, so I thought, "It couldn't hurt . . . it will probably even help, right?"

I proceeded to work through my NO EXCUSES!  Absolute Beginner's Yoga class last Thursday.  And I felt GREAT on Friday.  Saturday . . . not so much!  I woke up with a killer low backache.  As the week progressed, the pain and stiffness only worsened.

I tried all last week to ease it up and get some relief, without success.  I've tried ice, heat, the hot tub, topical creams, herbal supplements for inflammation and pain relief, and some over-the-counter pain relievers.  Nothing has worked.

For the past two days, I have spent my time trying to walk upright, but from the side I look more like a boomerang!  My right hip is pitched further right than it should be, and my front view is reminiscent of an "S".  Actually, my discomfort and posture reminds me of three years ago when I had to use a cane to get around.

And truthfully, the past few days, it probably would have been easier for me to get up and down if I'd taken my cane out of the trunk of my old car and used it.

Part of why I have been fighting so hard is because I didn't want the doctor to be right.  Now I fear that I have pushed myself too hard, and perhaps I have just been prolonging the inevitable.  I was doing so well!  I'm not sure what happened, and I do not believe it was the Yoga class.  In fact, I had already seen some improvement in my posture from Yoga.

I believe the cause is of my own doing.  I had been working around the house the past few weeks, and perhaps I overdid it.  I was going through some boxes and moving things around to organize and downsize some old "stuff".  I have had to put my pre-spring cleaning on hold though.

Sadly, I also had to take a break from Yoga class this week.  I feel it is best, because the last thing that anyone with an "injury" should do is press their luck!  The yoga studio has a make-up class built in to the regimen, so I will be attending, provided I am able to get myself mended by then!  I am hopeful, and I am definitely not ready to give up yet!

Trying to mend.
