Mike’s ‘reading’ of me, which I wrote about yesterday, could have been about himself. In fact, some parts of the first section were almost word-for-word what his astrology analysis stated. But that shouldn’t surprise me because we cannot perceive in others what is not in ourselves.
What did surprise me was the mention of the ‘tightness around the chest’: as this refers back to a time in my life when a kind of panic set in, I’m wondering if that is symptomatic of more unresolved issues. To be brutally honest with myself, I am feeling concern for my dog, BeBe; she is now the last one standing in our household, since Cloe died. For months BeBe has been less than sure-footed about our back stairs to the deck. When we took her to the vets on Wednesday, we were told that she has a soft-tissue issue with her right rear leg. Her joint is inflamed and this has caused a prominent limp when she walks on it. She is not allowed to go for any walks, or jumping up and down from her favourite spots, without assistance, for at least a week. She cannot understand why, of course, so it makes me feel anxious for her mental state of mind.
That is a reflection of what is happening to me, too. Instead of being carefree (and careless) where my dog’s health is concerned, I have to be mindful of her at all times. But I’m missing our walks, and the comment by Mike about walking rings loud and clear to me:
Strong connection to nature and aware of its healing, recommend some walking bare foot for grounding and healing.
As a diabetic, I’ve been advised to never walk barefoot, not even in the house, and yet I know it’s good for me to connect with the earth. What’s a fellow to do?
That last improvement, “fasting glucose levels among people with diabetes,” flies in the face of what the experts say. So, my guess is, this is another ‘hint’ from the Universe that something needs to change, yet again. (It’s the way I get my inspirations.)
