Journey into Pelvic Healing - Part 9
In my defense, I have been upfront and aware that my immune system was struggling a bit. Sometimes the therapeutic effect can be weathered, and sometimes you have to back off a bit and let the body recover a little before the next round. I think I'm there.
In keeping with detoxifying through my head, along with the scratchy throat, swollen glands, headaches and sinus headaches...I woke up with pink eye. One eye completely crusted shut. Metaphorically, one could ask...what is it I don't want to see or what am I blind to? Plenty, I'm sure. My body is telling me to take a break. I don't have another session scheduled yet, so I'll let her know I need a rest. I'll continue with about 4 more vagi-steams using up the remaining herbs and continue for the forseeable future with the castor oil packs. Even if they have ZERO physical impact (although I think they DO), they stop me for a couple of hours and I focus totally on my own healing. When you're squatting over a pot of steaming liquid, or covered in castor oil...it's nearly impossible to multi-task and distract yourself from the task at hand....focusing on healing. So if nothing else, the practice makes the "me-time" very hard to walk away from mid-stream.
But first, excuse me while I step out to the health food store for some organic chamomile tea, raw honey and castor oil...then I'll have my vagi-steam, castor oil pack, shower....and it will be nearly bedtime by then.
I've got some movie and book reviews in the "hopper" for your musical interlude until I resume with the posts on the pelvic healing journey.
Try not to be too envious as I lie here with a hot cloth between my legs, castor oil and a heating pad over my belly, and chamomile tea bags over my pussy eyes. Envy is so unbecoming. SNORK! I'll even do some eye washes with chamomile tea. Don't you just WISH you were me??
Update: 1 pm same day. I made it through my "routine". I didn't have images or visions EXCEPT as I placed the tea bags over my eyes and asked "what is it I'm not seeing...what isn't it I'm trying not to see?" I just felt the message..."see...just see it all...open to the seeing".
Then really, I barely moved, and fell sound asleep. I woke up when my Sweet Baboo came home for lunch...and there I am...in all my beauteous glory. I got up and took my shower and put all my "supplies" away. I don't feel bad (my eyes don't feel so great), but I feel pulled in and quiet. Just still and a bit wilty. My body just needs some time to process the toxins I've released so far. I think this is a day to just BE. Oh yeah...and SEE.
