I’ve been told that when God wants your attention, He’ll put you on your back. The on-going lessons in healing began the 31st of January this year. I fainted, left my body and saw myself collapse to the ground, breaking my left shoulder. When I came back into my body, car headlights were rounding the corner as I lay in the street in shock. (My husband picked me up.)
Not again. Probably, if I hadn’t been an Open Heart/ICU nurse, I wouldn’t be so forgiving about these syncope (fainting) episodes. PVC’s (premature ventricular contractions) coupled with a low heart rate produce very little blood pressure and flow to the brain. Down one goes. I never thought I’d be “one of those people”.
And so, after the ER visit and seeing the compression fracture and mis-alignment (no wonder it felt like my arm was “coming apart”), a horse-collar sling was applied and the painful part of being in traction to reduce the fracture began.
I’ve not lived my life sitting down. I’ve been fully engaged in various sports, pushing the physical experiences of being in nature, whether it downhill skiing, hiking, sailing, kayaking, scuba diving… I feel alive and connected to this glorious earth. It also comes with risks and has produced outcomes, a few decent injuries, all of which have healed well. Though as I age, I find myself saying, “I don’t have time for this (injury)”.
“Just get me through the next 10 days”. It’s the hardest. The pain. Immobility. Not sleeping properly. Muscle spasms. The “why me?” “Why now?”
Let the healing begin. Healing isn’t only about the physical issues and body-vehicle responses. Deep down there are the cellular-memory emotional issues that surface. Memory of past injury, of the deep vulnerability, lack of control we ultimately have, needing others to give intimate physical care to us. We independent types struggle with this. I knew in order to move through this I was going to have to accept allowing of the situation and be in a full state of receiving. Allowing is not receiving. Herein, lies the lesson.
Physically, my husband and I had implemented Quantum Energy AFT Healing tools to speed up healing, specific essential oils to bring ease and comfort and support my nervous system, bone nutrients to support the developing bone matrix, Switch On to turn on my glutathione production to eat up the free radicals all the stress was creating, and close attention to adequate nutrition as the last thing I felt like was eating. I’ll go into this more in the next blog.
10 days after the incident, I had to go see the Ortho specialist and have another X-Ray. The doctors were shocked to see the bone had gone into perfect alignment and that healing was occurring so rapidly. They asked me what I was doing to create this as they’d not seen this before. Our ability to heal is far greater than what we’ve previously been told!
I don’t know about you. For me, the less time I need to be “down with an injury”, the better. I just want to get back to being active an enjoying my life. Learn how to amplify your healing!! It’s self care at the advanced level. Connect with me. You’ll be thankful you did.
