Avoiding Crisis


with 3 comments

Since we got back from our trip to the United States I’ve had this tingling feeling in my fingers and aching pain in my hand and a severe tightness in the upper right side of my back.  I figured I’d slept wrong on the plane and pinched a nerve somewhere, etc.  But it wasn’t going away.  In fact it was getting worse.  After two nights of really shitty sleep I decided to take some action and get this problem taken care of.

So what did I do?  I paid someone to torture me.  Well, kinda sorta.  Yesterday afternoon I had the deepest, most painfulist massage that I have ever had. That I think anyone has ever had.   I’m not going to sugarcoat it.  It hurt.  It really hurt.  But as much as it hurt, it also felt really really good.  And when the pain subsided there was a sense of relief and complete relaxation.

Towards the end of the massage the masseuse began to tell me how the vertical pathways of energy that run through my body are completely blocked and how my health will only deteriorate if I don’t open them up.  She also mentioned something about my chakras and how they are out of alignment.  And something else about harmony and how I don’t seem have any.

Not sure if I buy into this whole energy-chakra-harmony thing. 

Last night my husband got home earlier than normal and while he was bathing the kids I went to lay down for a minute or two.  I feel asleep.  It was 6:30PM.  I woke up this morning at 6:00AM.  After 12 hours of sleep I felt better then I had in days. 

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the tingling in my fingers and the aching in my hand seem to be gone.  For now, at least.

I’m off to Uruguay tomorrow to enjoy an early birthday present.    Only 5 days to go!
