We spoke with Scott Kelly, a wellbeing expert, and good friend, about what it means to rewild our physical health.
Scott talks about the importance of moving beyond our cultural obsession with symptomology, and no longer viewing symptoms as purely inconveniences but rather invitations from the body to see something different. And while it can be helpful to have a label for something, we tend to hold labels as static information about ourselves rather than seeing our condition as constantly evolving and changing.
In our fast-paced society, we rarely slow down enough to expand in consciousness and get a sense of what we really need. We want to rid ourselves of symptoms so we can get on our way, but our symptoms have messages for us that our bodies desperately want us to hear. The body has an innate intelligence and often our symptoms are indications that our body is working on healing.
Angus and Rohini relay their own health-related stories and how seeing deeper into their true nature was what ultimately healed them both. There is a key difference between being cured and being healed, and sometimes feeling better doesn't mean we've healed, while other times our symptoms haven't changed at all and yet we find healing.
Scott's message to all of us weathering this pandemic is that COVID-19 has been an invitation to get back to nature; as nature has been given a chance to rewild with less human activity, people have also been given a chance to rewild and listen more deeply to the mind, body, and soul.
This episode explores:
- The importance of slowing down
- Physical symptoms as an invitation to expand in consciousness
- Trusting in nature
- Trying to heal while caught in a stressed state of mind is impossible
- Poos clues: Angus's innovative take on the popular children's TV show, "Blues Clues"
- Listen for the "but": We often start the sentence with "but" when we're getting ready to advocate for our limitations
- Episode 25 features the music of RhythmPharm with Los Angeles-based composer Greg Ellis.
