Life has been so full since my last Blog entry! The writer in me has been looking forward to this moment and now it's here! Oops, I just yawned twice now (12:05 AM) and it appears that this is going to have to be brief.
Yesterday I had another session with my number one Chiropractic health practitioner and the first item on my list was the single remaining symptom from the sciatica episode. After a few adjustments at one end and the other that symptom (manifesting as weakness in the left big toe) diminished as nerve strength increased!
Tomorrow I have an appointment with the gastro-enterologist who had appeared in the hospital (on about the second or third day I was there and who ordered blood test for hepatitis). I will ask if he has a "lactose intolerance" test he can have me take and maybe just leave it at that. One item, to keep it simple. If asking for that isn't agreeable to this doctor then I am willing to let go of trying to pursue my process with him. I have no idea of how this guy works, what place drugs and surgery have in his repitore. I know I don't need surgery or drugs and so I wonder what else he works with. I might ask.
In my last "honesty salon" gathering of six days ago I reported to the group about "mom's" reply to my letter. One participant said that they do not look to any one individual to have all their needs met. What they can't share with one individual they can with another. I am intending on following up/responding to that sharing in the next meeting under the banner of "unfinished business" (as in "an incomplete communication" on my part). I wonder where this participant was coming from in saying what they did. I am guessing that it is essentially all about them and not really relating to my statements. I'm reminded of "The Four Agreements" - not taking anything personally and that what people say is about them. These particulars sharing really showed-up like that for me.
Having said that I now think of "mom" and I can say that the same principal applies to her expression as well. Everything she has said/wrote is all about her and there is none of it that I need or want to take personally. I guess it's unfortunate that she has apparently taken my expression as a personal insult. And I suppose I was at least "insulted" with her last e-mail when I felt enraged at her comments. I must have taken that personally for the rage to have been triggered. And now I don't want anything personal with her.
I don't know if I have reported this yet but I now have a copy of the Core Transformation book that I had previously listed as one of the things I wanted to work with. I have read the first few pages and intend to go all the way with this in the near future. Having said that I just found the book and moved it up to first position in my reading box!
Well, my time is now up for this session. Thank you for stopping by!
May You Be Blessed with the Knowledge of Your True Self, the Core You, Who and What You Really are!
