Based in Cremorne, Sydney I offer a mobile acupuncture service for patients with advanced heath conditions.
On a personal note, It’s been 4 weeks with the girls staying at home from school. Lately, I have been noticing the endless amounts of abundance we have in my family.
Having said that, the first two weeks were brutal. I applied a few mental strategies in the beginning that has helped me cope. Taking it slow, one-day-at-a-time. I ditched the school work for 2 weeks and focused on having a relaxed and flexible schedule. I was attentive to the emotional dynamic of the family, not the academic stuff.
In 2007 I spent two months meditating in a Sri Lankan Buddhist Monastery. Everyday a senior Buddhist Nun instructed me on how to carefully watch the mind and they way it worked. I meditated and contemplated for 12 hours or more each day. The skills I developed at that monastery and later during the years of meditation practice have definitely come to the fore during this time.
I contemplated the difficulties of having to spend so many hours with my kids. I knew I needed to be very attentive and mindful of the difficult thoughts and feelings that would come up. I needed more patience and loving kindness towards my girls.
I made a choice to be careful and do all the right things with extra hygiene and social distancing. I also made a choice NOT to be afraid of the situation and act out of fear. I believe that was a important conscious decision that has been a positive and calming influence for my family, patients and community.
The world has so much fear and panic right now and I am proud to see how happy and safe my daughters feel under my leadership. It validates me as a competent and good Father. A few months ago I was in a deep grieving process. I felt depressed and thought I wasn’t any good as Dad. I couldn't see the value and positive influence I have on my daughters lives. Now, thankfully, everything looks totally different from that perspective.
If anyone is out of work at the moment and needing treatment I am offering 50% off mobile acupuncture treatments in North Shore Sydney. In home acupuncture or home visit acupuncture appointments are available. Call or text on 0450 790 038.
