Art & Spirit by Artist, NORA KASTEN

Painting # 1001 of 1181 paintings / Oil on Linen (24"x30") Completed Jan. 17, 2008   SOLD

Painting #26 of 1181 paintings / Watercolor (16"x12")  Completed June, 1991
Note:  I painted very few watercolors through the years.  Oil was my medium of choice.

"Resting most of the day is still the best I can do to manage Peripheral Neuropathy which feels like experiencing the worse toothache pain all over my body. . . . It is nerve pain.  So far my doctor's pain management is not working for me either since my body has an allergic reaction to and cannot tolerate the drugs, Percocet, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone and Tylenol #3 which has Codine in it.  The nerve block shot in my lower back did not relieve any pain at all.

It appears this is just where I am supposed to be at this time and I am at Peace with it.  I intend to glean only Good from this experience.  If you are new to my blog, I have copied and pasted my earlier message about this below:"

"After many years of controlling the pain of Peripheral Neuropathy, I am once again laid low with it.  Resting most of a 24 hour day is what I do and it helps me.  When trying to do otherwise, the price is too high to pay.  I will recover from this as I did before but please understand why I have not been available and won't be until this greatly subsides."

Daily Word: Daily Inspiration From Unity

I am mindful of my body temple.

Monday, February 23, 2015

My body is a holy temple of Spirit. Its true purpose is to fully express and embody Divine Love and Life. I release any behaviors that may deplete my body. I support its vitality through my loving attention to its messages and needs.
I honor my body by eating nourishing food and living a healthy lifestyle. I regularly send love and thanksgiving to all parts of my body, energizing them with affirmative words of Truth. My increasing body awareness helps me recognize and release challenging emotions that I may have repressed and stored as physical pain or illness. I honor my needs for rest and recreation. As I devotedly serve my body temple, I create space for the sacred to unfold in my life.

Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God.—1 Corinthians 6:19
