Changing our reality with a single thought or continuing reality by hanging on.~Ani Po
About twenty years ago I was diagnosed with Allergies. Allergies to nature and animals, scoring off the charts. My allergist prescribed inhalers, pills and weekly shots. The one thing that helped most was intramuscular shots.
Every shot had allergens of all sorts. In the tiniest amounts it was injected into my body, as to build up natural immunity.
After ten years of seasonal suffering, I began searching for answers to my reactions. No longer wishing to take a Western Approach, I tried herbal teas, homeopathic remedies…alas to no avail. What to do now? Continue the search for ten more years.
Last year I was reconnected with mother nature on a deeper level. Upon going to Peru, I was reacquainted to the healing medicine Mother provides. Upon taking the medicine my reality was flipped upside down, facing my deepest fears and darkest secrets. Parallel to these darkened moments came hidden secrets of the self.
With my darkest secrets revealed, psychosomatic responses began slowly fading away. Back pain, Dark rings around my eyes, twitching and other various nervous disorders. What was happening? What was this connection to my ailments?
As I write at the peak of allergy season, with very little symptoms, a voice speaks to me. A voice from plant spirit guides me to let go of past beliefs, letting go of the bond of psychosomatic response to that which I am holding onto. What?! This can’t be! Just when I doubt, my mid-thoracic spine locks up…spiraling into a multitude of spasms.
Louise Hay discusses various physical ailments that reflect our psyche and creates pain in certain areas of the body. Hmmm…can my pain in the mid-thoracic be a response to my holding onto the past? “I release all previous beliefs, knowing that my future holds bright and allowing a new reality to present itself. I am safe and I am healed.”
Upon verbalizing this last phrase, the back pain was removed. Coincidence? Made up in the confines of my psyche? It really doesn’t matter to what the answer may be, as long as it holds true to my new reality. Is it possible that my allergies were also a psychosomatic response to my stubbornness to change? It is no coincidence that peak allergy season is paralleled with a heightened time of change…that of spring and fall.
Our planet is changing at light speeds and so are we, why do we resist? Why can we not evolve on a daily basis? Weekly? Yearly? Constantly letting go of the past, embracing a new reality of change.
It is said that the happiest people are those who welcome change. This lesson holds very dear to my heart, as I move forward into brighter days…letting go…yet once more…that which does not serve me.
