Happy Holy-days and Merry Christ-mass from Shallyn's Physical Therapy and Wellness Services. At Shallyn's we are so grateful for Christ's death/sacrifice; the greatest gift we can have and give. Without Christ, we would not be able to grow in the fruits of the Holy Spirit -- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal 5:22-23). In the flesh we are powerless over naturally achieving these mindsets.
In Shallyn's Tai Chi winter series that kicked off tonight, we reviewed how our natural mindset comes to be, how it manifests into our body's expression, and results in our current circumstances/reality/environment. We have a choice to break down negative subconscious beliefs, patterns, habits and values that prevent us from living our most healthy lives each and every day. We can move from a place of judgement to a place of forgiveness (thank you Jesus for being the propitiation for our sins, 1 John 2:2); to cease to feel resentment and own our lives back. We can move from being victim to accepted because despite our trials and tribulations in the world, He overcame the world (John 16:33). We can move from a state of being needy to a place of inner strength because it is not I who live but Christ who lives in me (Gal 2:20). We can stop our excuses and walk in His will because His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts (Isa 55:9). We can get out of a state of confusion and learn to trust again; trusting that He is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness (even when we are faithless, 2 Tim 2:13), gentleness (His burden is light, Mat 11:28-30), and self-controlled (the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, Heb 13:8). Our flesh may put us on the EVIL wheel of despair toward health but, with God all things are possible (Mat 19:26)!
In 2020, it is my challenge to you to take that nagging issue that YOU can't seem to rid and seek effectively your individual positive desire of optimal health; growth for all around you -- family, friends, co-workers. Through prayer and being thankful for everything (opportunity for growth and never forsaking all the blessings that come your way in life), your best health days are yet to come.
It is no coincidence what scripture God puts on my heart to share with my patients/clients each week on my scripture board. As we wrestle through our winter series in Tai Chi, this is our meditative message to fully experience breakthrough in our resistant mindsets and stabilize our neck and shoulders (a common place of physically harbouring our stress).
Phillipians 4:6-7 NIV
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Join us Thursdays at Perfect Fit Wellness Center in Peyton, from 6-7pm to learn more about how you can also obtain breakthrough in resistive mindset and navigate your Spirit peaceably through the Holy-Days. For more information or personal coaching on mindset, call Shallyn's at (719) 219-5865.
Merry Christmas to all!
