I have had a rather large lump behind my left ear for many years, and have forever been unsure of what it is. It appeared a few months after I had an operation on my ears (to have them "pinned" so as to curtail the abuse I was receiving from playground antagonists) and has remained the same size and shape ever since. I can not recall exactly when I had this operation, but it could only have been between the ages of eight and ten. I am now twenty-six years old and desperately wish to rid myself of this irritating affliction...
Do you have any insight as to what this "lump" might be; and if so, how would you suggest it be treated and, indeed, removed altogether (without the use of surgery, which surely contributed to its appearance in the first instance)?
Around my eighteenth birthday I began noticing a few lumps and bumps appearing in certain areas of my body - the underside of my left arm and my neck especially, although many of these simply disappeared with time. I have read suggestions that this may be caused by lymphatic congestion, but I do not yet grasp why some lumps and bumps would appear and then disappear whilst others retain their size and shape. I have read much of your "Timeless Secrets..." book (skipping the section on addictions as it does not apply to me, thankfully), wherein it suggests that my problems may be lymph-related, however, I would greatly appreciate a "personal" diagnosis, if you would be so kind as to grace me with your thoughts and words; not only on how one should rid oneself of the offending abnormalities but also some form of explanation as to why they appeared. Much of my life has been plagued by supposition, suspicion and fearing the worst, and only now in my twenty-seventh year can I begin to face my imperfections (fears) and attempt to deal with them once and for all.
Thank you so much; your comments and answers never cease to inspire me,
(edited for coherence after the mad dash to meet the posting deadline)
I think Andreas had a similar question before. I believe the response was that liver flushing is in order. I had a friend with similar lumps and it was toxic stuff choosing the wrong route out, but certainly liver was strongly indicated in his case. It may take a number of flushes to influence the lumps.
...Whoops, meant to say that the lump appearing after a surgery could be due to medications taken at that time.
Thank you so much for your response. It resonates with what Andreas has advised and thus I can now plot my resurgence ever further. Perhaps my "condition" is not near severe as I had imagined, and if this is indeed the case it appears I have wasted the past eighteen years of my existence worrying about something that may not be...
I do hope that your operation went well, and that you are now free of woe and consequently ready for yet another adventure!
Surgery always injures lymph vessels, blood vessels and possibly meridians. There are numerous lymph nodes around the ears. By cutting off or injuring a local lymph vessel network that drains metabolic wastes and dead cells from that given area of tissue, there can be an accumuation of these wastes in any of these attached lymph nodes. Since the outlet for these wastes is cut off from the larger lymphatic vessels, the waste products and dead cells mingle with the rest of the tissue and form a lump. These lumps can occur without surgery, and many people have them. They all result from lymph congestion.
There are a number of things one can do. Liver flushing improves lymphatic functions and blood circulation to and from congested areas. Gently massaging the area with expeller-pressed sesame oil i nthe morning can reduce it over time. Swishing expeller pressed sunflower or sesame oil in the mouth for 3-4 minutes in the morning before brushing the teeth (then spitting it in the toilet)can be helpful, too. Ear candling works on clearing lymphatic congestion in the head and chest areas. Also, placing bentonite clay like Pascalite or green magnetic clay over the lump area can help draw out wastes. Frequently holding the palm of your hand over the lump with the intention to break it up is also a good idea. Most importantly, changing your attitude toward the lump is most important. It is not there by accident. It is part of your inner healing you have been going through. As you increasingly love all parts of yourself, including the lump, you may one morning wake up and no longer find it there.
Thank you so much for your insightful and beautifully logical response. If you do not mind I shall perhaps read your reply each morning, in the hope of providing continued inspiration. I have experienced great difficulty when flushing in the past (pain, nausea, vomiting, etc) and your wise words may inspire me to continue when results have thus far appeared somewhat futile... (My attitude may well be responsible, however...)
I must admit that ever since the lump first appeared I felt I had cancer...not an entirely pleasant thought for an eight-to-ten year old to deal with, and I do believe it has shaped my entire existence up to this point. Your advice concerning a change of attitude is wonderfully poignant, and comes as something of a slap in the face for I have attempted to achieve this in the past but to no avail.
Again, thank you so much. I only hope you realise how much you are appreciated here, by myself as well as many, many others.
