Well, just as I thought I was coming out of the hole, as things would happen …. I got sick. I wrote a post on the morning of the 15th and by 5pm I was rotten as a chop!
Metaphysically Speaking ….
I already knew that my liver and kidneys were under load and struggling a bit …. metaphysically the liver is about anger (that’s where expressions like ‘being livered’ come from) and the kidneys are where we hold our fear. That fits with the last couple of posts! So where does the flu fit in (sore throat, body aches, hot and cold, cough etc).
Well, according to Annette Noontil in “The Body is the Barometer of the Soul”, the flu is about not wanting to do what someone else has told you to do and feeling guilty about it. While Louise Hay says that it’s a response to mass negativity and beliefs. Well funnily enough they both fit. I have a few significant tasks that I have to do and just don’t want to get to them. Because of my stalling they now have taken on huge proportions and Monday was to be my start date – getting sick put an end to that and was probably the only way I could avoid it without feeling overly guilty! As for Louise Hay’s version, I am so over the lies and spin from both sides of politics in the upcoming Australian election, and all the negativity that raises. I definitely just wanted to hibernate from it all!
Anyway, after 3.5 days of withdrawing from the world and craving the comfort food of my youth (homemade creamed rice – Mum, come back from Monkey Mia) I have surfaced, feeling more positive than I’ve felt in a while.
So, I thought this post would focus on 2 things – sorry if it’s a bit confusing, but hey, my brain’s a bit addled:
- What are your memories of comfort food while you were sick as a child?
- What are some of the things that you feel grateful for today?
Today, I feel grateful for…..
A body that is getting healthier each day … yeh team!
The wonderful support of my special friends and family. For example, my buddy L. came over with a big pot of her delicious homemade hearty soup and that has been all I’ve wanted to eat. I’ve had homemade sausage rolls and carrot cake roll up too! Kids think it’s Christmas!
Today is such a beautiful sunny day – I’m grateful that I could lay on the trampoline with my 10yr old girl, Snugglebunny, who is home for some tlc too! We were working on getting our Vitamin D intake to increase our immune systems!
A husband who says not to worry about cooking, we can get take out!
A husband who closes the bedroom door so I might get a little bit more sleep before the demands of motherhood press that bit harder. Heck, I’m just grateful all over for my hubby!
My beautiful friend Sally Moore, who also happens to be my Homoeopath – she called up when I was wallowing, talked to me about my symptoms and emotions and then put me straight on some remedies, even sending extra remedies down to me (she lives about a 50 minute drive away).
A vegie garden that is just brimming with healthy broccoli, cauliflower, beetroot, peas and spinach – it’s joy to be able to pick from the garden fresh produce.
