It’s been quite a while since I felt the effect of the solar flares in my physical body.
I’d usually have severe headaches. The nape area would be in such excruciating pain as if my head would blow up! 😮
There were times also when I’d have heart palpitations in addition to headaches. I could hardly breathe as if my heart is too large for my chest! There were times when I felt as if my body was going to explode with all the energies moving into, out of and through me, whew! 😮
I started experiencing some of these symptoms again recently. Not as intense, though, thankfully.
Last Friday, I woke up with a severe headache. Terrible, terrible headache! Awful! 😮
I took a quick late morning swim but not after hesitating for a moment. It was a toss between relying upon the healing energies of Mother Ocean to wash away the headache, and not doing so as I was concerned that the heat of the sun might worsen it.
I opted to take a swim. Hard to pass any opportunity to submerge myself in the water! 🙂
Interestingly, even the energies of the water seem to reflect the state of my being. (And the collective perhaps?)
The water was rough. It was like taking a ride on a bumpy road. The waves were going in different directions. I didn’t feel very safe. I felt edgy. Uneasy.
I still felt refreshed, but the headache persisted. And I knew it wasn’t a ‘regular’ headache. It was an all too familiar headache. I knew there was something else going on in the cosmos that triggered it.
I had a massage at one o’clock. I asked the therapist to focus on my head. That helped, thankfully, but the headache didn’t go away!
I was wiped out the rest of the day. I usually take it easy after having a massage, but this day was exceptional. I felt like a punching bag! 😮
A quick check in the solar activity confirmed what I had sensed.
On the exact hour that I was awoken by a terrible headache was when there was an M-class solar flare!
Apparently, in addition to the powerful and intense eclipse and equinox, and other planetary positioning and alignments, we’ve been having up to eighteen solar flares a day since September 27! Several of them are M-class! 😮
I was nudged to do a different relaxation technique that I haven’t practiced in several years.
My body’s response to this solar flare paved the way for me to incorporate once again this simple but truly relaxing and de-stressing technique — Progressive Relaxation.
After I woke up yesterday morning, I listened to a CD on Progressive Relaxation & Autogenic Training. I fell asleep again immediately after!
And today, also after a long time of not doing it, I took a two-hour afternoon nap, yum! There was an M-class solar flare today, no wonder. It’s only eight o’clock in the evening as I’m writing this, but I’m already yawning. I might hit the sack even before I hit publish! 😀
Feeding My Physical Body What It Needs
I’ve been craving for protein and grounding foods — more than usual.
Over the years, I’ve removed red and white meat from my diet that now consists mostly of vegetables and fruits, and fish and seafood occasionally.
Since July, though, I’ve had chicken soup every week — including the chicken meat. (Free-range chickens, though, no less!) Tinolang manok, a native Filipino specialty dish.
I’d have it following my two-hour weekly massage. I’d also have a mug of chicken broth instead of herbal tea on other times during the week.
Much has been written about the healing wonders of chicken broth. And it sure has helped me cope with all the energy shifts. It is detoxifying and so nourishing! 🙂
I’ve also been having boiled potatoes and sweet potatoes more often than I ever have. It’s my body’s way of keeping myself grounded and rooted as I anchor all the energies coming through.
I’ve also had grilled cheese sandwiches (topped with egg, lots of lettuce, onions, tomatoes, cucumber) and vegetarian pizzas — more often than usual. Pizza is one of my two comfort foods — pancakes being the other one.
Is there any feeling of ‘guilt’ around some of these ‘unhealthy’ food choices?
That is also part of my shifts.
I don’t see it as a way of numbing my emotions. It’s not an escape. Not even a reward. I don’t look at it as giving in to a ‘craving.’ Or that it’s an uncontrollable desire.
It is simply what my body needs.
Oh, but I certainly would have looked at it in the past as giving in to a guilty pleasure!
I’d be overly worried about the unhealthy effects. The weight I’d gain, the inches, the folds, etc. I’d ‘justify’ my unhealthy choices. Well, after eating & living healthily, I deserve to indulge occasionally!
But….no. There’s no need to justify anything. Nothing to feel guilty about.
It pleases my senses. It gives me joy. It fuels me. I feel nourished. Nurtured. That’s what matters.
As a firm believer of the Power of Intention, and the energy that we put into our thoughts, words and actions, I AM consciously choosing these foods with nothing but much Love, Gratitude and Appreciation for the Nourishment and the Joy that they give me.
I’m equally grateful for the luxury of time and flexibility in my schedule and lifestyle that allow me to cope with all these energy shifts — most especially during these intense periods of transition — taking a swim, taking naps, sleeping in, practicing yoga, being in nature, living in the seaside, incorporating relaxation techniques as and when needed, etc. 🙂
How are you dealing with the shifts and energy downloads? After all the intense energies in September, how has October been for you?
