Ok my peoples, I feel like I need to share...there are A LOT of peeps getting sick right now, like crazy sick, lasting for weeks or more. I feel there are a few things going on...first, this is a natural time to go within and our society doesn't really care about this natural rhythm because we just keep working, keep doing, keep moving forward even if it doesn't feel "right" somehow or we are getting signs to chill out, but we ignore them because we live in a workaholic society...
(Yes, I know we all have to pay our bills. Just stick with me here). If you are not resting more, sleeping longer, eating nourishing foods, expressing yourself when you feel upset, receiving some type of healing care, then I HIGHLY recommend you do so! This is a time to "be with" your life...what's working? What isn't? What can I do to be in more alignment with who I really am?
I feel sickness comes as a gift to make us slow the hell down and BE WITH OURSELVES. Yes, this pisses some of you off that identify with your "doingness" in the world and not your "beingness", which is most of us. I understand. So, my fast healing protocol to do AS SOON AS YOU FEEL FUNKY is; acupuncture and energy work if you can, rest, hot tea, rest, nourishing soups like miso and chicken broth in copious quantities, rest, "Quick Defense" by Gaia Herbs (great co. out of Brevard, NC) and/or olive leaf extract rest, and lots of good water. Did I say rest? ;-) AND, I think most importantly, LOVE YOURSELF YO! Be proud of who you are and what you bring to the world! You're amazing! We are WAY TOO hard on ourselves and that sh*t has got to stop, for realz! Repeat this mantra to yourself over and over,
"I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you." (mantra of Ho’oponopono)
As soon as you start to feel a bit better (or if you have no fever), I recommend Emergence Care, body work or Shamanic Healing with John and/or I (the main things that keeps us healthy along with everything else I listed) or some other energy/ healing work you feel drawn to (some practitioners give sessions over the phone so you don't have to go anywhere, myself included ;-).
That should do it! I send healing love to you all and hope this helps!
