**How Mental Stress Can Develop Chronic Pain**

Did you know that mental stress can lead to chronic pain? Think of mental stress as extra weight carried by the physical body. When we’re stressed, our bodies release hormones that can cause muscle tension and inflammation, leading to persistent pain. But there’s good news! Controlling your breathing can help alleviate this stress and reduce pain. Deep, mindful breathing signals your body to relax, lowering stress hormones and easing muscle tension. Take a moment today to breathe deeply and feel the difference. πŸŒΏπŸ’†β€β™€οΈ

06/14/2024

About a month ago, I spotted a hawk during my walk. Two weeks later, I saw another one flying along the same path I was traveling. I walk the same route in my neighborhood seven times a week while listening to podcasts and audiobooks. Occasionally, I record a video to share on social media, calling it "My Walk and Creative Thought Talk." I enjoy sharing my thoughts with my followers during these walks. This time, on my way back home, I spotted a large bird sitting on a warning sign, just looking at me. It was a striking moment that made me pause and reflect.

At first, I was taken aback and stepped off the path to keep some distance between myself and the bird. I wasn't sure what it was or if it was something that wanted to attack me or just have me stay away. I then took a picture of the bird and went on my way, still wondering what in the world this bird was.

Initially, I thought it might be an owl, thinking how strange it was to be out and about on a bright day since owls are nocturnal. I went home and started to look up what it means to see an owl during the day and only found negative connotations, which made me freak out a bit. I then shared the picture of the bird with a loved one, and she mentioned it was a hawk. Knowing it wasn't an owl but a hawk intrigued me even more. I delved into the meaning behind the hawk’s presence and what it could signify, especially when it crosses your path repeatedly. Notice in the picture how the hawk is strategically sitting on a warning sign. Did that mean I was being warned that something is about to happen or change? Or did it mean a warning to be prepared for what is to come in my current journey?

To my surprise, the meaning of a hawk's presence is that I need to prepare for a big change coming my way. Hawks are often seen as messengers and symbols of vision, insight, and intuition. Their keen eyesight represents the ability to see things clearly and gain a higher perspective on a situation. Seeing a hawk might suggest that you need to look at things more closely or from a different angle. Known for their focus and determination when hunting, hawks symbolize the need to concentrate on your goals and pursue them with determination and precision. The hawk's presence can be a reminder to stay focused and determined in your pursuits.

This rather excited me because that is exactly what I have been seekingβ€”some kind of change in my life since my downward spiral last October when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although I have made significant lifestyle changes to my already healthy life, I wasn't sure if I was doing the right thing or even enough of those things. Seeing this hawk and understanding what it means has given me a glimpse of hope that things will change for the better. I am not only looking at change in my health but also in other aspects of my life, including stronger relationships with loved ones, friends, and most importantly, the one with myself.

So, today I was revisited by the hawk whose path I crossed on my walk today as it flew over me and along the path that I take daily. I again delved into the meaning of this and found that it means I am being told by the Universe that I am following the correct path, which only encourages me to keep going. To intertwine this finding with my current state of health and wellness, I believe that all the lifestyle and habit changes I made are clearly the right path for me. I may not be seeing the results as fast as I would like to, but now I am able to continue to be consistent and persistent with my daily habits, knowing the results will come when they are ready. I need to trust the process and not quit. If I feel that I need to challenge myself a bit more, then that I will do. After all, it is when we move out of our comfort zone and take the challenge that changes happen.

My favorite quote by Mahatma Gandhi is, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." This timeless wisdom reminds us that real change begins within ourselves. Our perspective of the world shifts when we choose to make positive changes in our own lives. I've personally experienced this transformation when I decided to alter my habits. These changes not only benefited me but also inspired those around me. When others see the positive results of our personal growth, they are often encouraged to follow suit, creating a ripple effect of positive change in the broader community.

THIS! I am so honored and humbled for the share!
My dear friend and yoga student took the time to write this about me and my practice on his LinkedIn Profile.
https://www.linkedin.com/in/johnnie-heider-kuhn-cch-864601183/

Let me tell you about my friend, Madhavi Rao.

In 2021, Madhavi and I met as her son and my dear sister-in-law were falling into a deeper love while planning for the future. We connected over both being health coaches. At the time, I had just started my Vitalism (herbs/nutrition) coaching practice, and was fresh off my initiation into the weird world of Kambo, while in the throes of shutting down our urban farm in Jefferson County and moving North to the Front Range. Our meeting was nothing short of divine timing.

Soon I would begin taking private Kundalini lessons from her virtually. Having spent the greater part of my mid and late-20s journeying deep in medicine dimensions, I was blown away by how the combination of mantras, movement, breath work, and meditation within 75-90 minutes was providing access and texture to these familiar journey spaces. Madhavi and several other teachers on my journey have said, "many paths up the mountain..."

As our families were preparing to join together at the wedding of the year in 2023, Madhavi welcomed my husband and I to her virtual Kundalini class Wednesday evenings. We call her "Auntie" now. :)

Since beginning my practice with Madhavi, my ability to manage stress has increased tenfold. I am way more flexible, present, and can even sit still for hours at a time (previously unheard of). I have since deepened my practice of Pranayama and Kundalini, and the benefits continue to amass - my mind is more clear, my vitality and endurance has greatly improved, and my strength training is more stable. Now we are dreaming of ways we can collaborate in the future - healing retreats, podcasts, etc.

Madhavi is a special soul - she is generous, open-minded, funny, nurturing, and on a mission to help people feel at home in their bodies with less pain, stronger immune systems, and better presence. I doubted that I could benefit from virtual yoga, but let me tell you - it's been incredible. You can see her offerings at her website - link in the comments below.

This picture is from her son and my sister-in-law's Sangeet - which happened to align with my 36th birthday. I got the mic from Madhavi's sisters and shared gratitude with the attendees for the way this practice has changed my life, which followed with Madhavi leading the room of a couple hundred folks in singing me happy birthday. Friends lifting friends lifting friends!

πŸŒŸπŸ“ **The Sweet Relief of Strawberries!** πŸ“πŸŒŸ

Did you know that your favorite juicy, red berries are more than just a delicious snack? Strawberries pack a powerful punch when it comes to reducing inflammation and easing chronic pain! Here’s how:

**Rich in Antioxidants:** Strawberries are loaded with antioxidants like vitamin C and flavonoids, which help fight off free radicals and reduce inflammation in the body.

**Anti-Inflammatory Compounds:** These berries contain ellagic acid and quercetin, both known for their anti-inflammatory properties. They help combat the chronic inflammation that can lead to pain and other health issues.

**Boosts Immunity:** High in vitamin C, strawberries help strengthen your immune system, making it easier for your body to fend off inflammation-related ailments.

**Natural Pain Relief:** Regular consumption of strawberries can help alleviate symptoms of inflammatory conditions like arthritis, reducing pain and improving mobility.

**Supports Heart Health:** By reducing inflammation, strawberries also support cardiovascular health, helping to prevent heart disease and related complications.

So next time you’re looking for a snack, grab a handful of strawberries! Your body will thank you. πŸ“β€οΈ

🌸✨ Overcoming Chronic Pain with Yoga ✨🌸

For most of my adult life, I struggled with chronic pain that limited my ability to move with ease and confidence.

As a child, I wasn’t athleticβ€”I was the girl with bows and dolls, not a gymnast. PE was my least favorite class! In adulthood, after having children, I realized I needed to be more active to get back into my pre-pregnancy clothes. I started with group aerobics and daily walks, eventually cleaning up my diet and ditching the Oreos and Chips Ahoy.

My journey led me through various fitness programs until I found yoga. This practice was a game-changer for my chronic low back, hip, and shoulder pain. Yoga improved my flexibility and strength while alleviating my nagging pain. It also played a crucial role in helping me stay mentally strong during my breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, allowing me to support my family and keep it together.

Yoga for Chronic Pain is a practice that can help balance the nervous system, manage stress, and address specific pain areas like the back, hips, and shoulders. I’ve created a weekly yoga session - Yoga for Chronic Pain - to share the benefits I experienced.

If any of this resonates with you, join my in-person or online weekly sessions to see if I might be the right fit for your needs.

Even in the midst of cloudy days, there's always a ray of light to find. πŸŒ₯️✨ Let's embrace the beauty of seeking gratitude in every moment, no matter how overcast it may seem. Just like glimpsing the deep blue sky amidst the clouds, there's always something to be thankful for. Gratitude isn't just a fleeting feeling; it's a powerful mindset that opens doors to abundance in our lives. 🌟 When we actively seek gratitude, we shift our focus from scarcity to abundance, from what's lacking to what's present. This shift in perspective allows us to fully receive the blessings around us and live in a state of abundance. Gratitude invites more goodness into our lives, fostering a cycle of positivity and abundance. So let's cultivate gratitude every day, and watch as our lives become filled with even more blessings.
