I was shaking – or rather I was being shaken. I was shook like never before.
I was on my knees with my head on my bed in search of a position where my body didn’t seem to vibrate me out of sanity. It was amazing! Don’t get me wrong – I am am not a hypochondriac nor a sadist. I don’t look for ways to be sick. The thing is it is increasingly amazing to me how the human body responds to illness, hostile bacteria and unsympathetic viruses.
So I am so glad that my body fights back. Yes the experience is anywhere from a hassle of a few days to weeks of cough/vomit sessions but that is very likely better than no response at all (i.e. probable demise to the death). Thank you body for generating the energy and directing it with force against the flu and a cold and diarrhea. Thanks for the healing. After getting knocked out for a few days I am ready to rejoin the fight. So a few thoughts on healing.
Healing brings our systems up to date.
Whatever part or function in us that needed healing passes through an eddy in the river. An eddy is where the water whirlpools as the river continues by. There are the swirls of bubbles that get caught in the elbow of a river until a new wave brings them back into the river community. The eddy is still part of the river, never not wet but spinning in a smaller world until it rejoins the flow. Healing is the bridge for us to get back up to river speed.
Healing feels fabulous, refreshing, renewing. Funny, some if us might even help ourselves to get unwell. As in we damage/sabotage ourselves or relationships because the instantaneous natural healing response from our bodies and the earth can feel so good. That adrenaline rush of injury or danger to be being brought back into oneself by the beautifully efficient and loyal powers of healing. These powers return you to your best. The healing force is true to your development direction and stage in life.
