Journey into Pelvic Healing - Part 3
After going to sleep that night, I awoke at about 2 a.m. unable to go back to sleep and with a screaming headache, some neck and shoulder pain, and my right arm was numb and I had trouble shaking life back into it. I had also been astral traveling in my sleep. Different than dreaming and a topic irrelevant to this post.
Having had many types of energy work, healing, physical therapy, etc, I was aware of what was sometimes referred to as "therapeutic effect" or of "feeling worse before you feel better". So this was not a surprise, unexpected or alarming. Unpleasant yes. I hoped to avoid it, yes. But it was happening. When things begin to be shifted, the entire body is impacted. There is no way for healing work localize to a single pinpoint. We are all connected inside and to each other.
I got up and walked around to flap my arm and get some feeling into it, stretch my neck, take some migraine meds (yes, the traditional medical variety of RX...only from Mexico where I could actually afford it). I made it back to sleep a couple of hours later.
The next day I still had some numbness in my right arm and some stiffness in my neck (no...not like a heart attack...I've experienced this before with a tight neck). And my guts were sore. Not my abdominal muscles like I did too many sit-ups...but like my bodily organs felt sore. And perhaps the scar tissue had been stretched a bit and made me sore.
And I still have to do the vagi-steam and the castor oil packs. Oy Vey! I'll go into more detail about that in my next post. Suffice to say, after some fits and starts I developed a system for both that is tolerable and by mid morning, I was back on track and feeling pretty good.
