Being a good doctor, I went online and typed in "painful, red, foot"!!
It appears that I have a case of plantar fasciitis.
I considered what to do, what to take, and whether to go and see a foot doctor.
I took some Tylenol and moved on with my day.
Later, not even thinking about my foot, I was sitting in a chair and looked down at the tile floor. There on the floor, I saw an image of a woman doing a downward facing dog yoga pose. I can't explain how the image was there, it was not a photograph or an actual tangible image, but rather it was as a drawing or painting might appear. The image left as quickly as it arrived.
The yoga image gave me a suggestion. So, I got up from the chair, went into the living room and did a few rounds of yoga sun salutations, focusing on the downward facing dog asana.
You know what is coming next right?
Exactly. After doing this my foot pain was more than 50% better.
I went back online and did a little more research and found that, in fact, downward facing dog helps to stretch the calf muscles and fascia. Internally, I must have already known this, as I gave myself a visionary prescription for health.
In the past, I would have thought nothing of the image. Over the course of my life, however, I have learned that we are always being guided in this great universe, and we can learn from our inner, outer, God-given and universal wisdom if we are attentive to the cues.
Now, this doesn't mean I won't go to the doctor or take an Advil. What it does mean is that for now, I am grateful for my tile floor vision and where it led me for symptom relief.
If we pay attention to our inner and outer imagery, conversations, and cues, we will see that we are always being led in a direction of help, peace, and health. Being attentive to our inner life and environment helps us to catch this guidance when it arrives.
