8 x 10 Oil on Canvas
You're really not going to believe what I just discovered. For a long time I have had chronic back pain as a result of having twisted hips, you know those big paddle like bones. Because of the twisted hip my back is all wacky-jawed, starting at the lower back and going all the way up to my neck and boy does it hurt. I have tried just about everything I could think of to eliminate this issue. I've done the chiropractor, major exercise to strenghten my core, arch support in my shoes, yogo stretches daily, lots of advil, accupuncture etc etc...Then
one day about a week before I made this commitment I consulted one of the books on my book shelf called "You Can Heal Your Life" by Louise Hay.
Her philosophy is that your emotionally held beliefs manifest into physical symptoms. So guess what it said about the cause for hip problems: "the fear of going forward in major decisions, nothing to move forward to". Well that described, in a nut shell, what was going on with me. Fast forward to yesterday, it occured to me that my terrible terrible pain wasn't there. Really! And then I remembered what I had read in Louise's book, how cool is that? Who would've thunk it? I am moving forward on my quest of 100 paintings in a year, pain free.
