I had a fever and the chills made me dress as if it was -20, and sleep under three doonas.
But I refused to take any chemicals to make myself feel better. It was my flu and it needed to run its course.
Garlic, ginger and lemon tea along with vitamin C and echinacea lozens were my best friends.
On Tuesday I felt so much better. Today I felt mostly great - speaking in a sexy hoarse voice and blowing my nose every now and then. I suspect that tomorrow I’ll be back to my vital self.
You see, if I took panadol or some other medicine for colds, I could have been “addicted” for a week.
Anyway, my illness didn’t teach me that the power of nature always wins over artificial aids - I already knew that.
I did lots of EFT tapping on my pain and emotional feelings. I discovered some buried intentions behind my fatigue, past stress, overwhelm, loneliness and anxiety. It was tied to my ex, yes, but clearly I created such patterns somewhere along the journey, in my childhood perhaps.
Now I know that the most essential relationship we have is the one we have with ourselves. Then inevitably, the more I love my life, no matter how busy, full or boringly quiet it seems, the more I attract happy people into my life. And we all benefit.
