The Four Realms of Health Pt 1

I went to see Nutcracker and the Four Realms Movie and it’s one of those movies you’d love if you enjoy beautiful, artistic and creative scenery. I personally like it because it shows that one can live in more than just one dimension. The story is based on a varied version of the nutcracker ballet where Clara, a little girl ventures Photo Credit: Torbakhopper  out to get her Christmas gift, and ends up in the fourth realm. In the fourth realm days have elapsed and she has solved a serious problem among the kingdoms, when she returns to the earth realm and is still at the end of a party she arrived a few hours ago. You can also see this same concept involving “time” in the movie Inception where time moves a lot slower in the dream state than in regular earth time. Have you noticed that if you wake up in the morning and see the clock, then fall back asleep and dream, that your dream may have had the content of 30 minutes, but you wake up to realize it’s only been 5 minutes?

Many of my patients and often myself feel there is not enough time. We seem to have not enough time to do everything on our to do list, let alone take the time to invest in our health, self-care, relaxation or spirituality. If you feel your health is suffering but think you have no time to do what it takes to get better, know that there are ways to “warp time”. You just need to know how to get into a different “realm” to achieve that. You may be thinking, that sounds very weird! 

Well, to be honest I have thought that too! Until I have experienced the warping of time to my benefit. For example, I have spent half a day thinking of writing you all a newsletter and then not doing it, then stressing about not doing it. Then taking another 4 hours to write the article a different day. This situation is not ideal. This situation is also a situation where I am usually stressing about all the things I need to do, being less grounded, more emotional, more resistant, less smart and less efficient. 

But I have also been in a different “realm” where I write an article in 1 hour…boom it's done! In this realm I am usually more spiritually connected to my source, more inspired, more calm and in flow. So about the warping of time; I think I warped time! What would have took 8 hrs took 1 hr.

Could it be possible that if you were in a “healthy realm” that the same could happen for you? Wouldn’t you like to shrink down an 8 hr task to a 1 hr task (not because you rushed but just because it didn’t take as long)? Freeing up some time is not only important to allow yourself time to invest towards your health, but it also benefits your personal wellbeing. 

In the movie, there are 4 realms. Stay tuned for Part 2. We will give you 4 realms of health that can help you maximize your time, “warp time”, enjoy your time, especially during this holiday season so that you can stay on top of things, your emotions and enjoy the people you care most about. More to come in Part 2.
