“i have everything i need within me to be healed.”
the thought arose like a gentle whisper the other morning. i sat cross-legged on my yoga mat, eyes closed as my breath began to deepen. my thoughts were on the doctor’s appointment ahead of me and my health concerns.
“everything i need to be healed is within me,” went through my mind and a gentle peace began to settle. i felt empowered and strong, ready to handle whatever may come my way, confident i would and could be taken care of.
the call came early in the week, confirming an abscess caused by MRSA. given that my brain was lingering on the “C” word, MRSA sounded like a cake-walk. until they switched my meds to a horribly intense antibiotic that caused heartburn for 48 solid hours. still, it wasn’t worse and i was already visibly getting better. the aforementioned doctor appointment went smoothly and quickly, with confirmation that i was getting better and, while i still would need to be checked in the future, i had no need to worry.
empowerment is an interesting thing. while i may not always be able to heal myself without outside assistance, reaffirming the idea that i have it within me to confront and deal and be healed without fear was incredibly strengthening. the empowerment it brought helped me to hold my head eye, instead of yielding to the fear. just those few moments on the mat were all i needed to be reminded that i am a strong, formidable creature.
on a different note, thank you to so many of you who “liked” my original post and left notes of encouragement. may we all be vessels of support and empowerment to one another, and thus work to change this world we live in.
