Emily's Insights - Deep Rest

Saturday, August 01, 2020

This month Empowering You Kinesiology is focusing on Deep Rest through the winter months

People often talk about feeling a bit down through the winter months, unable to get motivated and a general sensation of sluggishness in daily life. For some the colder months bring on a full depression with inability to get out of bed and little hope for the future.
Have you ever thought that maybe humans are supposed to hibernate to some degree for the winter too?

When we look at the word ‘depressed’ phonetically and find ‘deep rest’ it can feel like a heavy burden lifting off our soul. To allow and understand this state of deep rest could alleviate a pressure we put on ourselves to perform in our roles as per usual. This need for hibernation may not be confined to winter for you and you may need some support to discover, define and release the traumas, emotions, beliefs...that are exhausting you at a soul level. Kinesiology offers tools to bring clarity to the situation and therapy to assist you to release and move forward.

Living in a country like Australia and in particular Queensland our winters can seem fairly mild, a few cold days and nights but nothing a woodfire and good jumper can’t fix but that doesn’t mean that our bodies and minds don’t crave a slower pace and a less ‘peopley’ existence.

What I have learnt about myself over the years is I really need to embrace this idea of slowing down, having more alone time and just generally expecting less drive from myself during this time of year. When we don’t acknowledge this and just keep trying to push through we start to feel unproductive, frustrated and exhausted. We may even create an illness just to slow us down and make us rest.

We talk about the ‘Spring Clean’ and the ‘Summertime Fun’. These seasons hold so much energy and motivation and so we seem to be drawn to them and forget about the benefits of setting aside a time for hibernation and rejuvenation.

Are you trying to do too much during the season of bear?

"After more than 35 Years of emotional and physical heartache which has manifested into years of ill health, I can finally say I AM FREE.. WOW!! Even writing that makes me smile. Obviously I still need medical treatment, but to have that clarity is so over whelming. I am crying with joy now not sadness and frustration."
