And the journey continues….by Liz Saunders

It’s now been 17 days since I took the B.C.  I had a meeting with Witch Keila on day 12 and she tells me that based on certain incidents over the first 12 days, it’s working.  For the record, despite my threat to Google B.C., I have restrained myself.

I mentioned in a previous post that I thought I noticed improvement in my itchy head and painful hand…fleeting, but there.  Well, apparently that’s an improvement and I can’t argue with that.

 

One of the most stunning things that happened was letting my brother know, after yelling at me for things I couldn’t have understood, that he was out of line.  Sounds like something so simple, doesn’t it?  But it’s not something I would have done 6 months ago…indeed, not sure I have ever done something like that in my life.  I’ve always been too worried about losing something that might be important rather than standing up for myself.   Had another similar incident on day 15 with another family member that I still can’t believe I did.

After a very stressful weekend, a condition I have flared up (not surprising) but what was extremely surprising was that it only lasted 36 hours!  Instead of a week!

So… little steps.

Then the other night, I went to bed at the usual time but at 12:30 I was awake…not because something was on my mind, not because I had to take Jaden to the bathroom but because I had full body twitchies!  Unfortunately, although Witch Keila told me I can continue to take the Calc. Phos. for arthritis pain, I am NOT allowed to take my Cuprum Metalicum for my RLS (or full body twitchies).  Oh my god, it was agony.  I tried my Mindfulness Meditation breathing, I tried putting an extra blanket on my lower legs (heat and weight).  After about 2 hours, I finally went back to sleep, so very tired the next day.  But I’m sure Witch Keila will see it as a good thing.   She should try it some day.

But if that’s part of my progress, then I guess I will just have to find a way to cope.

On another note, there must be some emotional change going on for the good.  I’ve always believed that you send out vibrations to the universe and if your vibrations are negative, good things don’t happen.  When my friend, Bob, took his life, within 6 months The Virtual Alternative was almost defunct.  I had only one client left and she was a very small but loyal client.  When I finally came out of my depression over Bob’s death, business picked up.  Lately, not only did I pick up a client from a colleague who couldn’t accommodate his needs (5 day a week phone service), then an organization that I started talking to about 2 months ago finally committed and we start working together next week, but on Saturday I got another enquiry because of a LinkedIn connection.   If this keeps up, my daughter Siobhan is also going to be very busy.

On a personal level, yesterday when I woke up, my first thought was about a situation about which I had only had negative thoughts for years and that thought was “hmmm maybe if things keep improving, this can be fixed too”.  First positive thought in …I can’t tell you how long.

Woot woot! as my daughter Olivia would say!  Oh and for the record, my scalp is starting to feel like a scalp!  Another Woot!
