Those who know me well know I have spent most of March recovering from the most amazing (and extensive) spinal surgery. Once again, the Universe has been looking after me and although he would not characterise himself as a messenger from the angels, Dr Matthew Scott Young is the astonishingly skilful, brave and successful surgeon who completed the enormous job with no bad effects and total removal of my long term pain! Hooray!!
Given that I have had more than usual time to reflect, it will not surprise you that I have been planning the rest of the year, especially now that I have so many events to arrange, so much education and entertainment to deliver, and so many people to see right across the country.
On 15 May, which is a Sunday, I will be in Hobart where there are loads of women just eager to find out all about natural hormones and what they can do for them, whether they are menopausal or not. In June I will be running another seminar in Brisbane so that those of you who have missed it last year can catch up. There is not only hormone information, but also how you can get familiar with some of the surprising methods of new age healing that are available to you for yourself or for your family and friends. There has been a huge increase in interest in healing methods and at my seminars I introduce people to concepts
they may not have encountered before, but which are so-o-o interesting!
Time to recover from surgery also means time to reflect on how life changes, sometimes due to outside influences and sometimes…. because of decisions we make inside and skills we decide to enhance inside ourselves. What the heck is she on about now, you ask!
Well, I have been telling my friends, associates, and basically anyone who would listen, that there are forces afoot in the Universe that we can use to improve whatever situation we are placed in. So we reach for pain killers when the surgery makes it’s presence felt, but there is something else we can do. We can use energy healing on ourselves, and use our creative imagination to manifest a different reality.
For instance,today I had fair amount of pain in the morning, but since I am trying to get off the heavy pain killers from hospital, I decided to employ other things to help. So I used the ‘pencil of light’ that many of you will have heard me speak of. This is a technique I learned from a book by Robyn Welch called Conversations with the Body. You imagine a pencil of light, any colour, and sort of scribble on the part of your body that needs relief. It took quite a few minutes, and no doubt is not permanent, but there was distinct relief of the worst of the pain.
So how about the miseries that sometimes accompany painful conditions? Well, there are techniques for that too. All of these things will be included in my seminars as they offer real advantages to improve our health and well being, no matter what stage of life we are at.
So much of a bad day is due to multiple factors that come together. It’s not just the pain of the operation, is it? It’s the awkwardness of movement, the temporary isolation because of not going out and about, it’s the work not done but piling up, and the things we would like to be doing but seem never to get to! Pain killers won’t address most of these but the other techniques can and do help. The magic of life is how these things appear when you need them. Belief in your own ability to find what you need inside is all that is required.
So bring on the rest of the year! 2011 is going to be a hum-dinger,as my Dad used to say! The rest of this year will probably pass in a blur there’s so much going on, but I’m happy to say myself and the team are here to keep passing on the lesson that the natural world has treasures as yet unknown and the magic is there to be discovered by everyone who wants to!
