If you’re a newer patient at Coulee Health this past year, you may have seen and/or filled out our survey that we hand out with our new patient paperwork. We have been tracking what areas our patients seem to be interested in, and one that many people have checked is “Aligning your mind, body, and spirit to cultivate overall wellness”.
You hear about holistic wellness and some of you are immediately skeptical about what that entails. Ultimately, holistic care embodies all aspects of our being: physical, mental, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual. Meditation is a tool to promote holistic wellness. It is often done in silence. What and when we decide to meditate does not necessarily need to be the ‘best’ spot, but it truly encapsulates the art of dropping into meditation in the most challenging of times. Meditation can create the space between stimulus and response. Here is a little meditation clip from Meggan Watterson speaking about the soul-voice you can use to drop in no matter where you are in your day.
This answer that we search for is found in what Meggan states as the soul-voice. The soul-voice she describes is simply you, but in a clearer light. It’s not this separate being, but it is a space for you to ask for help from yourself. Everyone has the ability to find the answer within them, and everyone has a chance to learn and grow with the tools they have already been given in life. It is just figuring out how to use them. When searching for an answer or some guidance, there is no sense of limit. You have all the time in the universe to search. We are meant to evolve and become aware of that inner voice in no specific order.
Practicing meditation, especially in the most stressful parts of your day, may provide a sense of empowerment and worth. Notice what happens. Feel free to write back and let us know.
