BALANCE

FOR THE BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT

BALANCE WAS CREATED TO ASSIST IN THE HEALTH AND HEALING OF YOU! I HAVE NOTICED IN MY OWN LIFE TIMES WHEN MENTAL OR PHYSICAL HEALTH SERVICES DID NOT REALLY HELP THE ISSUES I WAS HAVING. EVEN THOUGH THEY APPEARED TO BE THINGS LIKE ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, AND VARIOUS HEALTH CONCERNS, THE REMEDIES OFFERED WERE NOT HELPING. IT LEFT ME SEARCHING FOR HOW TO HEAL MY MIND AND BODY. ALONG THE JOURNEY, I FOUND MY SPIRIT. 


UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE EACH A BODY, MIND, AND A SPIRIT. AS HUMANS WE LONG FOR A CONNECTION TO SPIRIT AND NO MATTER OUR RACE, GENDER, OR AGE, WE ARE ALL DESERVING OF THIS CONNECTION. I FIND THE MOST RELEVANT AND MEANINGFUL TRUTH THAT I HAVE LEARNED ON THIS JOURNEY IS THE FACT THAT WE MUST STRIP AWAY OUR ATTACHMENT TO LABELS AND JUDGEMENT OF SELF AND OTHERS. WE MUST LET GO OF THE IDEA THAT WE CAN OR CANNOT DO SOMETHING BECAUSE WE ARE NOT THIS OR THAT. AS HUMANS WE HAVE BOUNDLESS POWER AND LOVE WITHIN. IT IS THROUGH THESE LABELS AND JUDGEMENTS THAT WE HAVE CREATED SEPARATION AND SUFFERING.

AS AN EXAMPLE: I AM METIS AND BECAUSE MY GRANDMA LIVED THROUGH VERY TRAUMATIC TIMES IN A RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL, SHE WAS SO ASHAMED TO BE INDIGENOUS THAT WE WERE NEVER TAUGHT ABOUT OUR CULTURE. IN FACT, I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT I WAS METIS UNTIL I WAS IN MY LATE TEENS. AS I GREW OLDER AND FELT A VERY STRONG CONNECTION TO THE INDIGENOUS WAYS, I OFTEN FELT I WAS TOO WHITE TO PRACTICE THE TRADITIONS OR CULTURE. AS I CONNECTED TO MY SPIRIT THROUGH MEDITATION, I WAS GUIDED TO CONTINUE SEEKING AND CONNECTING TO PRACTICES THAT COULD BE CONSIDERED TRADITIONAL. BY TRUSTING MY INNER KNOWING, I DO CONNECT WITH MY INDIGENOUS ANCESTORS IN SPIRIT. I LEARN ABOUT THE METIS PEOPLE, INDIGENOUS PEOPLE AND ABOUT THE TRADITIONS THAT I MIGHT HAVE BEEN TAUGHT IF MY GRANDMA TAUGHT US. THIS IS HOW I'VE FOUND PEACE WITHIN, BY PRACTICING WHAT MY SPIRIT NEEDS. OUR SPIRITS MAY FEEL A CONNECTION TO A CERTAIN RELIGION, CULTURE, OR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE FOR REASONS WE DO NOT ENTIRELY UNDERSTAND AND IT'S IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT BEEN BORN INTO THAT WAY, WE CAN STILL PRACTICE IF WE FEEL CALLED.

AS HUMANS WE HAVE THE RIGHT, MORE SO, AN OBLIGATION TO CONNECT TO THE SPIRIT, FOR OUR GREATER GOOD. THERE WE FIND SOMETHING TO LEARN, TO TEACH, TO KNOW, TO FEEL. THIS IS THE CONNECTION THAT SO MANY OF US LONG FOR. I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT WHEN YOU LISTEN TO YOUR SPIRIT, YOU ARE HEARING TRUTH, THE TRUTH OF YOUR SOUL. THERE ARE NO BOUNDARIES OF LABELS LIKE RACE, RELIGION OR GENDER IN THE SPIRIT REALMS.

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GRAB A JOURNAL, BUY A SPECIAL ONE (THE DOLLARSTORE HAS SOME GREAT ONES0, REFLECT ON YOUR LIFE AND IF YOU'VE FELT A CONNECTION TO ANY PARTICULAR CULTURE OR SPIRITUALITY. WRITE THE DATE AND TIME ON EVERY ENTRY.

TO TRULY LOVE OURSELVES WE MUST HONOR EACH ASPECT OF OUR BEING. TO DO THIS WE MUST BECOME VERY HONEST WITH OURSELVES AND HOW WE INTERACT WITH OUR INNER AND OUTER WORLDS.

JOURNAL - HOW ARE YOU TREATING YOUR BODY? WHAT FOODS ARE YOU EATING? DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH ADDICTION TO FOOD, SHOPPING, SUBSTANCES, COMPLAINING?

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO YOURSELF, ABOUT YOURSELF? HOW DO YOU TRULY FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF? WHAT DO YOU SAY TO OTHERS OR ABOUT OTHERS? 

HOW DO YOU CONNECT TO AND TREAT OUR EARTH? DO YOU COMMUNE WITH GOD OR A HIGHER POWER? DO YOU BELIEVE IN A HIGHER POWER?

BY ANSWERING THESE QUESTIONS WE GET TO KNOW OURSELVES.

NOW IS THE TIME TO CHANGE WHAT YOU CANNOT ACCEPT.
