I am finally feeling “present” enough to actually use some of the alternative and holistic healing modalities I have learned. Today I meditated for an hour and used guided imagery to imagine a healing process for the cranial nerve that is causing my impaired vision. I also put a couple of essential oils (Thieves and The Shield) into my diffuser to treat my sore throat while I meditated. I find that even if nothing changes, I feel better about actually DOING something instead of just waiting for nature to take its course. To be clear though, my vision and fatigue should naturally clear up. It’s just nice to help them along, so I don’t feel like a victim.
