Journey of a Modern Mystic: A Life Long Practice

As with any adventure you embark on, as the adventure unfolds, you tend feel like nothing has changed because day to day, the shifts aren’t always obvious. Yet, often when we look back at who we were, where we were when we began, we can see the difference and the changes that have taken place. It’s a real before and after that is quantifiable, tangible. that can’t always be seen while we’re in it.

My journey through the School of the Modern Mystic has been subtle in many ways, especially with the day to day working on and working in the material but when I look back at who I was before hand, how I felt before hand I can see and feel that I am very different than I was before.

While many things have shifted, I feel perhaps the biggest gift this beautiful school has given me is the gift of knowing what my own energy feels like.

Before this training, I felt tired, unwell and agitated about so many things. Now, when I am continuing these practices, I find that I have more energy, when I’m unwell I am not unwell for long and while I find myself getting agitated here and there, I know I only need to return to my practices to feel a sense of stillness again. I know that these practices are integral for my wellbeing, for my self-esteem, for my life to feel smooth and life’s challenges something that can be overcome.

I am human of course and I often fall off of my Modern Mystic Wagon but the support from my fellow Modern Mytsics is always there to help get me back on track. It is after all, a spiritual practice.

Without these practices, I know that I am a short fused, illness prone, tired, grumpy person. With them, I am energetic, I am still, I am comfortable in who I am and I make smart choices without really needing to work through them. They just seem to be easy to make.

If I get my energy field right, everything else just works. And I can tell you that fist hand. I’ve loved it so much i’ve begun level 2 to deepen the work of level 1.

WHOLE-istic Wellness (Part 2)

Dana Atkin Kinesiology Wholistic Wellness

It always bugged me that I spelt holistic wrong. Every single time, I had to correct it. And now I know why. It’s because it should be Wholistic. Not Holistic. And since yesterdays post  I’ve been pondering this even further.

Here’s where my trail of thought is going at the moment.

The definitions of Holistic:

“Characterized by the belief that the parts of something are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.”

The medical definition of Holistic:

“Characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease.”

Then why, is spelt as if there is a hole in the person? We are after all whole beings.
Hole-istic wellness suggests that somewhere within us is a hole. Always. So therefore, can there really be any true wellness if there is always something missing?
Whole-istic wellness would suggest that at all times, we are whole beings and that parts of the whole are not as well as they could be. Far more likely that wholistic wellness is to be aimed for, that feeling of completion, that feeling that every part of your being is connected, is whole. There is certainly nothing missing because as a Kinesiologist, I understand that our bodies know exactly what we need in order to achieve optimal health and wellbeing.
That is, wellness beyond symptoms, beyond the physical, beyond the nutritional and chemical, beyond the mental, emotional components but deep in to the cellular level and much further out and more expansive that the body far beyond the spiritual essence of our being. We’re more wholistic than we intellectually think we are.
What are your thoughts on holistic or wholistic wellness?
