Movement is a natural part of life.  Everything moves that's alive!  The earth moves around the sun, the animals move around on the earth, the vegetation moves towards the sky as it grows, the ocean tides move towards the shore and back to the sea, and fluids move around in our body.  To stay in one place is to die.

A sedentary lifestyle has been shown to cause all sorts of health problems.  We are not meant to sit still all day!  Our muscles, our body fluids, our posture, our level of comfort, our flexibility, our strength, the function of our internal organs...all depend upon how we move.

Illnesses we commonly believe are only handled through surgery and drugs can be improved or eliminated through movement, particularly if other natural conditions are present and active in us, such as a natural diet, adequate water, reduced chemical exposure, a positive attitude, etc.  All natural measures work best in combination.  Rest, too, is important, and should be balanced with movement, as it is seen in nature.

Walk, run, stretch, dance, ride a bicycle...all ways to keep active and moving!  Do as much of these as you can!  (Again, balanced with rest...important to keep in mind!)  Walk up the stairs and skip the elevator.  (Even walking down is a good thing if walking up is to much for right now.)  Always do a little more than you think you can do.  Just a little.  Don't tire yourself out,  but stretch yourself a bit more every day. 

Stretches are very important.  Stretch every part of your body.  Put your hands in the air and stretch your fingers up to the sky!  Stretch downwards, then, too.  Always stretch slowly in opposite directions.  Smooth, slow, deep stretches.  Nothing you do should hurt.  Just move your body in every direction that it can go.  It might hurt a little, and that's okay, but if there is actual pain, then back off and move in a way with no pain.  Stretch slowly, and in awhile see if you can do more.

Side to side movements produce serotonin in the brain.  Pumping the calves up and down gets the lymphatic system moving.  Every movement is good for something.  Feel your movements give you an internal massage!

Just as movement within the body is very important, it is important to move also in your point of view.  Stretch your mind.  Grow into new ideas and ways of thinking.  Move from the position you're in, to a new position of where you want to be.  Move in the direction of health, goodness and love!

It is so easy to get stuck in our own way of thinking.  Without even realizing it, we find that we sometimes live in the apst, with an outdated view of the world.  Let go and move on.  Move on to new attitudes and new experiences.  Move on to forgiveness.  Move on to peace.

Movement is likened to change in this way.  Without change, there can be no healing or growth.  Change can be difficult, just as movement sometimes feels hard on our body and bones.  Sometimes we just want to sit in the chair and not do anything.  And sometimes that is okay, but if you're living your life in a chair and wondering why everything hurts, it's time to get up and MOVE!

Same thing with changing your mind.  If you can't figure out why nothing goes the way that you think it should, maybe you need to take a look at your oint of view.  You might need to move into a new position of thought, or take ACTION, which is movement, again.  Movement is important in all aspects of life.

They say, "No pain, no gain."  Sometimes it does hurt to change the way you think, the way you live, and it might even actually be painful to physically walk.  But if you stretch yourself a little more every day, the level of pain will decrease.  Sometimes it will decrease rapidly, and sometimes slowly.  Sometimes the level of pain stays the same, but the function may be what improves. The important thing is which direction you're moving in.  

Change is inevitable, and so is movement.  You may think you're sitting still, but if you are not moving towards living a fuller life, you are indeed moving towards death.

Life is proactive!  It's interactive!  It's ACTIVE!  Take part! 

Move a little if you don't think you can move a lot.  Put on music.  It helps!  Hum a tune, tap a toe...make it happy if it is happy that you want to feel!  Sway your hips.  Twirl around!  Do a little bit of the twist.  Change your brain chemistry, pump your lymphatics, and get some air into your lungs!  Your bowels will move better, your back will feel better, and you'll have a new state of mind.

Move out of old habits.  Is your life reflecting your inner desires?  If not, then take a look at where you are, and do something different.  If you don't change, nothing changes.  Movement is required.  This is something YOU have to do. 

Desire peace?  Move your thoughts to a position of peace.  Think peace, not blame.  Act peace, not taking part in exploitation, aggression or hostility of any kind.  Move to that place of peace in your soul, through meditation.  Move your body into a position of peace with itself, by exercising it with peaceful movement and stretches.  All things work together for good. 

With peace, comes health.  Peace of mind, peace of body, and a peaceful spirit.  Move into a position of peace.  Move into a position of wellness.  MOVE.  If you are not well, then you need to MOVE into a wellness state.  Move from where you are to where you want to be...one step at a time...in the direction of peace, love and harmony in body, mind and spirit.  Move like you're trying to reach a goal!  You will reach it if you just keep moving ahead.

Blessings,
