The journey to find peace with your body is a road worth traveling. For me, it’s been a rather twisty one with hills and valleys. I want true health; it gives me pain. I desire to be fit; it gives me pain. I long for the energy I once had; it gives me fatigue. This has been the norm for what seems like two life times. I’ve only recently come to a new place of reconciliation with these bones and sinew. I’d like to share it with you.
My Quantum Jump
Because I’m always searching for ways to connect to the inner me, I recently found myself checking out a concept that involves what is called Quantum Jumping. To give you a brief explanation, it’s a process where you travel to yourself at another time or alternative reality through visualization and either share something, receive something or both. I know it sounds a little odd, but ironically, it’s been the only thing I’ve done over the past seven years that has totally eradicated the chronic daily headache that has stolen so much of my life. I know, right?
Here’s what I did…
I went into a meditative state, relaxed, happy, with all intention of meeting myself as a child, a time when I was sick a lot. I didn’t really choose a particular scene, deciding that it would be best to let my mind go where it wanted. And it did. When I went through the doorway to greet my young double, I immediately knew at which place I had landed. It was me when I was around eleven. I was lying on the floor, sick with a very high fever, my mom sitting close by watching over me; I was delirious and in pain from the viral infection that brought ulcers in my throat, mouth, and face. Yeah, it was bad.
I walked over, sat down, and began to talk to the sick little girl who was me. I told her that I was older now and didn’t need to think as she did anymore; that I didn’t need to get attention from being sick; that people loved me well and healthy. Simple. Profound. Life-changing.
I said goodbye and left. But I had one more place to go. It was time to visit the Kellie who had grown up with the new ideas that I gave her as a child. Gee, doesn’t this sound like a really cool book or movie. Maybe it will be. Anyway, I did go see the “other” Kellie. She greeted me with a bright, shining, healthy face. Her life was different than mine. She had many things that I have not been able to acquire because of the illness that I’ve struggled with. She told me that I could do what she had done. I received a special blessing and the energy that was pouring out of her presence. We said goodbye. I returned to my bed, my meditative state and thanked God for what he had shown me.
You see, our minds our powerful. They can make real what we imagine and can go beyond what we think is possible. Did I actually visit myself in another reality? I can’t give you an answer to that, because I don’t know. Was I changed by my experience? Absolutely. Do I care if you think I’m weird? No, not really.
I have not had a migraine in over a month. The daily headaches are non-existent. I’m doing more, living more, and feeling strength for the first time in a long time. Who’s to say if it was my little trip that made the change, but who’s to say that it wasn’t.
