I overdid it in one of my workouts this week and have ginormous lower back pain now as a result.
Nothing serious, but painful enough to get my attention.
So I tuned into my intuition and my lower back and inquired what this was all about.
How did I create this?
The answer was instantly clear:
I neglected good form in one of the exercises because I asked too much of myself.
I ignored the little voice inside me that told me that it was better to do a modified exercise or go a lot slower.
But… I let myself be distracted by the workout pros on the workout video.
I looked at their muscles and skill and thought, ‘I want that, too!’.
And instead of paying attention to my body, intuition and tuning INWARDS to feel what was right for me, I tuned OUTWARDS and followed a pace that wasn’t good for me.
Ouch. I thought I was always super in tune with my own truth and didn’t get off track anymore.
Turns out, I did.
And that’s perfectly fine!
(Minus the pain. Although, without the pain I wouldn’t have received this insight, so the pain is a gift, too.)
I asked myself: where else am I out of touch with my own truth and let myself get distracted by something on the outside?
I instantly knew.
I’m super excited about a couple of things I’m working on / dreams I’m manifesting.
And… when I’m excited and / or REALLY want something, THAT’S what can cause me to drift away from my deepest truths and take actions or make decisions that aren’t 100% aligned with me. I just don’t notice that because my excitement / desire speaks just a little bit louder.
Good thing I caught it now!
I know the pain will go away again, so that’s all good.
And this reminder is worth GOLD.
I’m listening, soul. I’m listening. ;-)
Are you listening to your deepest truths?
When can you get distracted from it?
Pay attention now so you never drift too far away from your path and what serves you best.
