My Retreat and Visit to St. Colemanโ€™s Cave

Hi, hope your well. Have not blogged in a while trying to get back into the habit.

I am currently baking my first loaf of bread in the oven. Hoping it turns out ok and if not well there is always the shop๐Ÿ˜Š

My arm is healing from the crash nicely have a lot of movement back in it. Need to get the last bit of movement back when reaching up. I lack a lot of stamina and strength but these will come back with time and effort. I genuinely found focusing my mind on my arm and the sensation of energy’s to help a lot with the pain so I did not use pain killers after first 3 weeks. I also believe it helps a lot to help with the healing process. I am truly happy I did not need surgery on the arm๐Ÿ˜€

I am back from a retreat in Galway find link below. I find visiting the place helps to center my mind and spiritually enriching. I cannot do much yoga yet so mostly meditated and read very interesting books. The host is very friendly. We paid a visit to St. Coleman’s cave in Claire. I had to take it easy with dodgy arm but made it up hills.There was beautiful scenery on the way. My hands felt unusually warm on the way up. The cave was very still and very calming on my mind. I touched the rock and my hands were so warm the rock felt warm. I found it a very interesting experience.

I felt energized from the retreat with a new thirst for knowledge in general but more so spiritual type of knowledge. I was given an interesting autobiography of a great yogi . I am finding very enjoyable and interesting to read.

I think I will go on retreat every month or so here and there just to center myself.

I have my troubles but feel at peace with life even if I am unsure what road to take. I was asked a question what brings you joy on the retreat to which I thought and said joy is were you seek it. Will need to think about this for a while and see if it makes sense. I find simple joy in a good conversation or bird song on a walk but I need to make a reminder to myself it is there as I can get lost in my head.

While writing this blog I forgot to set timer for bread it’s looking a bit dodgy like I said there is always the shop.

The host recommended a film on Netflix called the Shaq. I would recommend it. I myself about 10 minutes in felt the urge to cry and apologize to God for being so angry at God. It felt good I am more at peace, I may need to remind myself of it from time to time.

Well that’s enough of my crazy head for now

Keep up the good fight ๐Ÿ‘Š๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Little Crash on my Motor Bike

Hi hope your well. It’s a nice sunny day here lovely weather.

Was going to work this morning. I was breaking before a corner. The next thing I know I am on the ground trying to get up I then realized I was sliding along the ground. I looked to my left to see my motorbike sliding away with a very large shower of sparks coming out of it. This continued for I would imagine a few seconds but seemed lounger. I come to a stop in the middle of the road feeling a bit frazzled. The first thought I had is to get up I can’t stay in the middle of the road I knew there was a car not far behind me.

I get up turn the direction I was coming to see the car coming around the corner. I start waving my good arm to bring them to a stop with the intention of jumping out of the way if they did not as they would then hit my bike sprawled out on the road.

They came to a stop got out I waved at the car coming from the other direction so as they would not hit motorbike.

I tried to pick up motorbike but felt like something was wrong with my right shoulder. So just said I felt shook and let 3 men out of the cars that stopped push it off the side of the road.

I got a spin 15 minutes home from one of the men that stopped. Which I might add was extremely nice of him. Turns out there are nice people in the world after all ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Went to the hospital and turns out my the top of my right arm is broke. Hopefully it will heal but they may need to do surgery with pins if not. Send all your positive vibes it does heal.

So that was an exciting morning. All said and done I am sore and bit broken but glad I walked away in one piece. I think someone once said any accident you walk away from is a good one. I got one hell of a fright I don’t thing I will be back on my motorbike any time soon.

My voices are there usual selves bit quite the last few days. Did meet with psychiatrist yesterday she agreed to place me on minimum therapeutic amount of medication and discuss were I am at in September. I discussed normal trauma reaction instead of viewing things as symptoms. She more or less said it’s your mental health and it’s what works for you.

I had a dream this morning of a broken umbrella when I googled meaning, it says there is upcoming danger in your life ? If I see a broken umbrella in a dream again I am staying in bed ๐Ÿ˜‰

Looks like I am taking a break from yoga at least I can still meditate.

Hope your day is less breaky than mine.

Keep up the good fight.โœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐Ÿพ
