It's been quite a while since my last post, and it was not the most positive. I was in a lot of pain when I wrote it, and a lot of fear. Arthritis in my spine was causing so much pain and neuropathy that I feared I would no longer be able to type or shoot photos or create art. That fear was realized. That's why I didn't post for so long. The good news is ... I'm back!
From a spiritual standpoint it may be a fair question to ask, "Did the fear cause the pain or did the pain cause the fear?" I think it's a combination of both. The prospect of losing the use of my arms certainly contributed to fear and that fear contributed to the stress my body was already under. The medical solution was drugs and disability, both of which are unacceptable to me. Arnica gel and ibuprofen helped a bit but they can only do so much and the damage reached an extent that natural treatments became useless. The solution had to lie deeper.
What lay hiding in the depths of my consciousness that created my physical, mental, and emotional suffering? It had to be something in me creating it because it was unresponsive to external treatment. At some point in my life I made a choice, or several, that resulted in what I was experiencing. As I dug deep I first encountered beliefs. That was helpful but I needed to know where the beliefs came from. Under each one was a choice to create or adopt the belief, and under that was a perception about life, me, or my body.
The problem with perception is that by the very nature of being human all perception is misperception. We don't have all the information. The earlier those perceptions were made the less information and understanding we had at the time. That's why so many of our beliefs formed in early childhood don't make sense to us as adults. As long as those beliefs, and more importantly, the choices we made to create or adopt them remain unconscious we can't change them. They run our lives silently in the background.
With each belief discovered I asked what was the root of it and in every case discovered a choice to believe it based on what I perceived at the time. Every single one is no longer relevant or useful. Conscious awareness of my beliefs and choices gave me an opportunity to release them. This had a positive impact on my physical health but the damage done over the years, both by my own thoughts and by injury and illness, required more than just internal change. My body needed help.
A friend told me about some products she was using that helped her with a wide array of physical symptoms as well as the sometimes bizarre symptoms of awakening. I had nothing to lose so I agreed to try them. I am so glad I did! The one that has made the biggest difference for me is GuavaLife, an effervescent tablet made from guava leaf extract using patented technology. When I did some research on it I could see why it helped me so much. Scientific studies and stories of personal experience with guava all explain just how powerful this plant is. For me, it has been almost miraculous.
The pain and neuropathy from arthritis, even that in my spine, is gone now. Relief began within a few days and after a couple of weeks it was gone and has not returned. Before, I couldn't sleep because of the pain but now I sleep through the night and wake up without pain or numbness. I can use my hands normally again, and that means a lot to me. Another issue I was having was persistent infections that were unresponsive to any treatment. Those are gone as well, cleared up in two days. Relieving all the stress my body was under has given me more energy, a clearer mind, and much better emotional state. I continue to take the GuavaLife and multivitamin every day and I'm noticing that my body just keeps feeling better and better.
If you're at all health conscious or experiencing unpleasant symptoms from spiritual awakening I highly recommend both the GuavaLife and the multivitamins by Ameriwell. Click the images below to try them and discover for yourself what a difference they make.
