Deer Medicine and the Truth

One of the most fulfilling parts of my work is connection. Connection with souls, truly, madly…deeply. The most magical part of my days is discovering that the very person lying upon my table, is a brilliant mirror for me. Every time someone releases their suffering a part of me heals too. Every time someone shares their sorrow, a part of my soul says: “Yes, I recognize you.”

There is nothing quite like it. Today was one of those days. A day where I felt incredibly inspired to share the truth. The truth of what it is like to live in this physical body with an autoimmune disease.

You see, I struggle between “owning” the disease and being kind and compassionate with myself when I need to. Does resting when I need to mean that I am giving Lupus more energy? Does feeling into how my body is aching mean that I am letting this disease take a stand in the forefront of my life? These are the things I struggle with. And I know that I am not alone.

I work on my own healing, daily. Sometimes it feels like minute by minute. I am sending light to my cells, affirming that I am well, drinking green juice, breathing, meditating. Yet, some days, I simply feel discouraged. That it doesn’t seem to be enough.

All of the time I invest on self-care and healing. Some days, it feels like it is just never enough. Or I’m not doing it well enough, or I haven’t quite figured out the secret to healing myself fully and completely.

Today was one of those days. A beautiful mirror showed up in front of me and I could hear my voice speaking the words that I needed to tell myself. It’s okay to feel all of this pain. It’s okay to acknowledge that you don’t feel well most days. It’s okay that you need to go to bed really early most nights. It’s okay. It’s all okay.

Be gentle, beautiful heart. Be gentle on yourself. For there is always hope, even in the darkest days. There is always hope.

So, on those days, when I am so very tired and my body is aching and all I want to do is curl up and read book, I am going to give myself permission. Lupus is still a teacher for me. I have yet to learn all that I need to from it. And that is okay.

It’s all okay.
