Moving from the Inside Out


I moaned and groaned. I was beside myself. “Every name I think I might want has been taken. Names and titles I’ve used for my work for many years are in use by other people – they have the domains. What to do?”

Whiny and pathetic, eh? Almost two weeks of not finding an available domain name caused me to nearly despair. Frustrated, not wanting to give up but almost ready to, I plopped down on the arm of my favorite chair. Head downcast, all I could think was how important it was to have a name with organicity, that flowed and reflected what the blog and my work are about. Anything less wouldn’t be fitting.

Spontaneously, with feeling I declared as if ending an argument I didn’t know I was engaged in: “Whatever it is, it HAS to come from the inside out.”

“What?” I took note. “That’s it, of course! Moving from the inside out.” My heart soared over that brief assemblage of words. Words that are natural to me and reflect my purpose. They sang to me.

This blog’s purpose is to always come from within, where the best flows from – never from the top of my head! I know there is renewing and transformative power residing in the natural resources within everyone. We just need to know how to tap into them. It boggles the mind because it’s as simple as paying attention: to how we move, how we feel, our attitudes. Add a few mind-body tools and we can access and utilize what’s already inside us, free. We came with it. Thank God!

I hope that’s intriguing. I invite your comments and brief stories for the benefit of all. There will be guest bloggers and interviews with professionals who use natural forms of healing: from transformational movement, massage and self-massage, attitudinal adjustments, to homeopathy, meditative knitting and laugh yoga.

Have a great day, see you here on Wednesday.
