There’s no doubt that as we work on ourselves we can have physical issues arise. Some new ones, some chronic and older ones. Maybe they aren’t really a-rising; they have always been there, nagging at us in the back ground.
Like me, there are many of us that have/had serious injuries. Recent or maybe one we have acquired in our youth. Regardless of when we got them… the lingering pain can be real-feeling. The energy work being done (if you are utilizing that modality) might take a while. There might be blocks that are blocking a block! Things can sometimes be super-deep, layered and covered with emotions, other people’s energies, programming, etc. Moving the energy and healing physical pain doesn’t always happen over-night.
My back injury (acquired from my NDE) has been coming to me, a lot, lately. I want to heal it and it wants to be healed.
This particular injury has many layers involved. It is: super-deep!
Becoming spiritually stronger within myself, building trust, and know that looking at this (injury) from all angles; to really see what is there for me to learn, acknowledge, forgive, love then release… is many processes. As I work on my layers I am also working on the layers within this one ‘story’.
It is – a story. I know I can change it and I am working on it. I also know that because of the complexity it will take some time (linear time). 🙂 I am prepared for that. I mean, I have been walking around with back pain most of my adult life… so, what’s a little longer (as I clear/release it), right?
In the meantime, while the (deeper) work is taking place, the assistance in curbing that physical pain/reminder is necessary, needed, appreciated, helpful, required… etc.
I have turned to CBD (cannabidiol). It works.
As a ‘healer’ – I am living that cliché saying: healer, heal thyself!
Very familiar with this one. We all need to be healing ourselves… healer or not.
There are times in-between the energy moving, releasing; and then the integration and assimilation of all the work done, where (physical) pain-relief helps. It helps lighten the physical reminder it’s there; it’s moving, it’s transforming and/or releasing.
Within my lifestyle there are seasons with more aggressive physical-labor moments. We really are ‘working the land’ at our little piece of heaven. The spring through fall time can have some brutal moments of really calling on my back and spine to be there for me! Yup, I thank it every day! I thank my spine and back for being strong, supportive, having endurance and stamina. I appreciate it. I also love it, send it love.
That is also part of the work, deeper work. Sending it a constant reminder that I love, appreciate and am grateful for it. For all-my-body really.
So, back to this CBD stuff.
I researched the-heck-outta-this new, but not new, healing-helper.
What a beautiful, amazing plant put on this earth for us to utilize when needed. For many of us, it was taken away, banned, deemed evil, and not legal in any way shape or form! Geesh! So harsh!
The history of the cannabis and hemp is actually quite interesting. I won’t get into all of that here, that is not what this post is about. But if you really want to discover its purpose, doing some internet searching will take you… probably all over the place, so be selective! 🙂
Ancient plants are here for a reason. They are here to assist, help, nurture, feed, and heal us.
CBD is one of the various forms of the healing nature of the hemp/cannabis plant. Some believe that hemp was one of the first crops ever cultivated. Recorded throughout history – a vital plant for us humans, no doubt. It’s been vilified (for Americans at least) and the long-running smear-campaign against this Divine plant had tarnished it… until now!
As the world wakes up, we are waking up to all the ‘truths’ that have been hidden from us. As a group consciousness we are connecting the dots and putting our puzzle back together.
I love plants! I always have. Even as a kid begrudgingly working the garden plots with my dad. I hated the prep work and wanted to get right into the watering seeds to watch them grow! I appreciate the prep-work now, I just didn’t understand that as a kid. I also appreciate the time and persistence my dad had with me when it came to garden-time. Were we ‘holistic’? Back in the day, it’s just how we lived. Natural, growing our own, making our own, etc. Super-centers just didn’t exist.
I am mentioning this because even though I fell away from the ‘natural’ world throughout my 20’s (ahhh, the 20’s! We do a lot of things we probably shouldn’t) I started to circle back in my 30’s. Here, finishing out my 40’s, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Plant power is a beautiful thing and I am glad to see it begin to shine again.
Where I was wanting to go with all of this is that:
I love plants! Healing and medicinal plants will and are making a come-back.
CBD and the myriad of healing properties contained in the hemp/cannabis plant will really start to come to the fore-front as we learn more. As we become more educated ourselves (about medicinal plants in general), we also become more accepting, understanding, and ready to heal the past. Even though there have always been studies going on regarding this plant, we are at a new threshold of studying this plant! If this makes sense. If 1988 was the discovery of the cannabinoid receptors and early to mid-90’s was the endocannabinoid system, then we really are… just getting started here! For such an ancient plant, we don’t know very much about, the potentials for discovering more hidden secrets of this amazing plant and what it can do for us – is exciting.
As we return to our roots and desire the natural way of living (on many levels/in many areas) being ‘holistic’ will return to being the way it was… just living, being, doing, growing, making, eating, healing and so on. It will be – how we live, in general. Naturally, organically – repairing the land, rebuilding the land while we are working it, utilizing it.
Working with Gaia; no longer will we abuse her and not take care of her. It’s team work and community, unity, and connection(s) – with Gaia and with ourselves. The new earth is of love. ❤
As my fall-time, here, is about getting things buttoned-up for winter I am thankful for the garden I was able to have this year. We prep it for its winter slumber and will see it again in the spring. When we do, it will be all about natural prep, organic prep… this includes putting my back-into-it.
And I, for one, will be ready for heavy days with my CBD topical and balms. 🙂
