Darn Near 50: When in a tizzy do you get dizzy?

I have noticed that recently I have been crashing into things. The chair leg. The edge of the table. The door frame. I have also caught myself almost falling downstairs, which is kind of scary. I thought it was my aging eyesight, but then I would be doing this all the time. Which I don’t.

So, I started paying attention to what was going on when I crashed into things. I discovered this …

When I am in a tizzy, I get dizzy.

This must be an aging thing, because I used to be able to get in a tizzy without gettting dizzy. Now, however, it seems to be more important than ever to keep my mind, body, and spirit in perfect balance. When my metaphysical balance is disturbed, my literal balance is disturbed.

I have to wonder if this is Nature’s way of keeping me safe as I age. You know, by Shouting at me, “SLOW DOWN and GROUND. You will soon be too old to stress out. It will take its toll.”

Well, it is working. It freakin’ hurts slamming into things, and I know that if I do fall down the stairs I ain’t gonna bounce. I am paying attention! I have eliminated all foods that clog my energy, and am doing daily meditation.

Metaphysically balanced; physically balanced.

  • When you are ‘out of balance’ what messages do you receive from your body?
  • Are you finding that you do not heal from bumps and scrapes as quickly as you used to?
  • What do you do to keep yourself metaphyically in balance?
