Back Relief

October 3, 2023

I woke up at 4:35a.m. It’s amazing how I can do that without an alarm. I stretched, then I jumped on the rebounder. It felt good to get back on the rebounder. I did my morning routine, then drove to Street Ministries. No one was there to eat breakfast, so I did some cleaning. Then I laid out a yoga mat I had brought with me. I did some sun salutations and stretching. During my sun salutation, I thought of something I was grateful for with each movement and breath. Then I laid fully relaxed still thinking about all I was grateful for in my life. 

When it was time for work, I locked up and drove across town. I listened to Barbara O’Neil while cleaning my first and second jobs. During my third job, my lower back started aching. I said a quick prayer to be shown why I was aching.  Strengthen your stomach muscles, was my immediate answer. I did that and it helped right away. I also saw clearly I had been thinking burden thoughts about work. I switched it grateful thoughts about work. My body felt lighter. 

During my 4th job, I listened to an audiobook called Pranic Energy. After work I went to the grocery store. I saw Cowboy there again. He told me his bicycle had a flat tire. I told him I had an air pump in the truck and we aired it up. Then I headed home. I greeted Christopher and Angel. Christopher left to go spend the evening in the woods with his friends. I got in the bath that Christopher had drawn for me. It was heavenly. I relaxed and meditated. After while Angel came and joined me. I got out and made up a frozen banana, coconut water, cacao milkshake. I took Angels milkshake to her in the bath and I laid down to take a nap. I didn’t sleep but wrote my blog instead. 

Angel got out of the bath and came to join me. I told her we had to go to my play practice in a while. She asked if we could please stay home and be together. I told her we could and messaged the cast that I wouldn’t be there. I read Angel all of the 4th book in The Magic Treehouse series. Then we went to bed early and fell asleep at around 8pm listening to Little Town on the Prairie. 

I am grateful to have experienced another wonderful day. 

Thank you for reading my blog and being a part of my life. I dearly appreciate you. 

Love, Victoria
