One Strand

As my body has recently recovered from a scary thyroid storm, and my weight finally back up,  my my drift refuses to comply to peaceful possibilities.  I may have something wrong and need to get it checked (IBS or something).  It’s weighty when you hear “You need to get this done now.  Death is real”.  We all know that it is, but when someone else tells you that something so small like a thyroid could hurt you or erase you, things become more alive and more real or I suppose I could sulk.  Not how I am, though.  Because at the end of the day, behind my eye lids lies myself and I.

A lot of my analysis have been about the consequences of actions and the inability for humans to fully understand them, in the greater whole.  However…. life can be simple.  Life can be one strand strung among many but,simply, a strand: a peaceful way to opportunity, revelation, and ultimate freedom of self.  One strand, strands alone.  Simply.  Lovely.  Even though it may be my strands of hair around the drain 🙂 oh thyroid, you odd thing.

The picture above, represents my approach to modern medicine and natural medicine.  I’m using kundalini and other methods to call upon healing among the great web.  Modern medicine has helped to find the issues.  Though, my friend did this strange test on me a year ago and found the issue far before the dr’s did.  She was studying a sort of reflexology and physiological responses.  I can’t say I know what it is call that she did.  But, there’s so man other options out there for scrapes and bruises, for a broken heart, and more than modern medicines and their sharp tools.  Though necessary at times, we can find the heart of nature or loved ones to envelope us in healing.  I’ll never look at a cloud the same, and because of this, my head is high and my heart open to the truth and my feet pressing for freedom!  I just started my wild flower garden and look forward to its harmonious cries.  Listen.  You can hear your life cry or send it on the wind.  Choice is always behind the eye lids you lie with at night!  I’ll be back with more philosophical analysis of what is and isn’t.  But, until then my choice is simplicity and love.  Sometimes the thoughts need a fluffy bunny pillow to rest, and this rest is filled with family, friends, and opportunity, as the strand blows so gently caressing each day and moment following a way towards freedom. 

Now I’ll keep posted the methods used for treating the IBS and Thyroid.  And so far, taking life slow, being responsible in diet and body, are the most beneficial!  I’ve found many teas that help a lot, and of course never pushing the body.  No more hand stands to back bends in the back yard! Not until my body says it’s ready.  Breathing is also very healing: from the root to crown, and you can do it at anytime!


Thyroid Storm

Well, this has been the most eventful new year ever! I didn’t declare any resolutions but opened my mind and heart to the haps of life in the “happy” of the new year. And so they began, I had a blockage and lost A LOT of weight. Concerned that the medications weren’t helping and possibly cancer, my husband takes me to the ER. There they find the blockage, and I don’t have cancer! This is a burden off my shoulders like no other and feel like I could dance and sing though I’m still gaining meat on my bones!

After this event, my thyroid must have decided my body needed help and began to go into 6th gear. Yes. Thyroid Storm. For a few days, I thought perhaps it was just weakness from the blockage, until it became too much. Thankfully my doctor let me see him quickly, and with out hassle and gave me the treatment for the Thyroid Storm. Why not rush to the ER since it can be fatal you may be wondering, well I haven’t insurance! With in 48 hrs of thyroid suppression, I could move again! Think! Feel! Smile! I was so shocked that such a thing as a thyroid could, BOOM, freak out and hitch hike on a roller coast I’ve not been riding.

So, during these times you find out who your true friends are. You find out that “I care for you” may mean “I’m just nosy, bored and jealous” or “I have no life”. It could mean “You mean more to me than my job” or “I’ve cancelled all my plans for you”. And, all of these I have experienced. I thank to cosmos for my good sense to read the signs and know what the universe is telling me. It’s telling me to be ALIVE. It’s telling me of humanity. It’s tell me that I have every right to be a nice person and ask a question nicely, but I don’t have to be yelled at and try to make it right. There is no living by living in the realm of the oppressors. Oppression of my thyroid was beyond my control. And, oppression from humanity, economy, and such are also uncontrollable. But, we have the choice to walk away: middle finger up if you feel so obliged but I could care less. When I see a human “caring” out of self indulgence for the sake of whatever they stand to gain, I can not rush them to the ER. No. But, I can lessen the ripples of the echos in this web of life but walking the path of self awareness and as best open to freedoms as I can, with knowledge and love that soothe the tremors of humanity. And, I think the catalyst for those who betray, lie, or become aggressive and hurt in anyway is unhappiness. Now that is a dose of energy I do not wish to bath in. Instead, I embrace my shadows and weaknesses for what they are and hope they help me keep afloat on this river unwinding. Now, if my thyroid tries to drown me, well then I will go to the ER hehehehe

So, beyond that, I have been dreaming up art pieces and spending time with my little gymnasts and teaching the idea of virtue and morality. For like my 6 year old says “All things are imagination and are not real until we imagine them to be so.” And the imagination of love and war, make for interesting convo. Hm. Please respond to your theory on these two elements and their fabrication, for I must rest my weary head! Until soon 🙂
