If It Serves You, It’s Sacred (A Pneumonia Story)

From the Heart with Rachel Brathen - February 19, 2021 - 48:20

In the yoga community, we are conditioned to opt for holistic methods of healing before we turn to Western Medicine, something that has served Rachel and her family well for years. Suddenly sick with pneumonia, Rachel opens up about her current condition in today’s episode. On antibiotics and using a machine to help her breathe, Rachel experienced resistance, shame, and the same fear she felt at 5 years old when battling severe asthma. It all changed the moment she placed her antibiotics on her altar and realized - resisting healing will not help you get better. And resisting pain is a huge source of pain in itself.We are quick to judge different forms of medicine, but maybe the answer isn’t found in one or the other. Maybe instead it is found in dropping the resistance, finding the intricate balance of discernment, and opening yourself up to all forms of healing. After all, we are so fortunate to be able to even make the choice! Tune in today to open your heart and begin your healing journey.
