That's wonderful, Firework!
Gentle movement is a great healer.
I find that ten minutes of gentle, impulse stretching and flexing is a good way to sleep better. I like to do it in the dark, sometimes beside my bed, and sometimes lying down.
Sometimes I imagine a 'wave' of movement traveling up the front of my body, over the head, and down my back. It feels like dancing and is very refreshing.
Were you able to get asparagus? Does it help?
Another hint that is easy to do is to exhale gently and fully, tensing some muscles that you want to send oxygen to. Then, when you automatically breathe in, relax the tensed muscle and your body will send oxygen there.
Exhaling gently, deeply, and fully, empties all the toxins from your lungs, and allows the maximum intake of fresh air. (Gently, of course.)
People often use only the top 1/5 area of lung capacity.
If you can, you might also like to give yourself a gentle massage. Always massage toward the heart.
Perhaps you can find someone who knows about the body's energy meridians...the pathways of energy flow in the body.
Another way to do this is to massage the hands, or the feet. Take time to gently probe all over each finger, palm, and back of each hand (or foot).
You may find tender or sore spots. When you do, take extra time to gently massage those spots to relieve the tenderness.
When you are massaging yourself is a great time to think about beautiful places and people. Appreciate yourself and your wonderful body. Give yourself happiness with thoughts of well-being.
Remember to smile, and to laugh. Laughter is very powerful medicine! Even when you pretend!
Ask your visitors to help you laugh. Tell them it is your best 'medicine', and that you must practice it ten times each day!
Ask them to massage your hands, too. And to lightly place their hands where you feel you need energy.
I had a bad toothache one day. I was sitting and moaning in pain. My husband came to me and circled my head with his arms. Instantly, the pain lessened.
Nurses in hospitals are learning to hold their hands over patients, to share their energy and give the patients ease. This is effective even without actually touching. Two inches
away, and over clothing or blankets, is good.
I once directed energy with the fingers of both hands clustered and pointed at a wound on my leg. My fingertips were about eight inches
from the wound.
After about five minutes, I felt a 'flow' of refreshing relief through my flesh and down toward my foot. It was like a little breeze.
A friend who is a kinesiologist told me that pointing clustered fingers at a sore spot may take as much as two hours to relieve pain, but it is worth the wait!
I am sending you healing energy all the way from Canada. Be well, good friend.
