a community of practitioners
this month has been an awakening of sorts...two weeks ago, i was going to a
massage appointment with a 50 pound bag of seasalt...as you may know,
seasalt baths are a great way to detoxify the body and to mineralize the body.
i was putting the bag down onto the dolly, onto the loading platform when the metal
handle pivoted on to my head with the force of the salt behind it. i was whacked but
as a working mom, i was oblivious to the pain and i trudged onto my work with no
regard to my well being.
in the past two weeks, i have had headaches, dizziness, nausea and depression...from
the injury. i have gone to have a bodytalk session with cress spicer and acupunture with
dr. jenny mah as well as i am booking time with my osteopath,bradley cornwell
i have gone to my doctor for her opinion but as a doctor, she did not give me much in the
way of advice other than to tell me that i had have a concussion and that i am going to have
to respect and rest my body as it heals.
it has a been a great lesson on concussion and the body's ability to voice its needs. i have
had to have time to just sleep and to also know that i am injured. as i recalled, this is my
fourth head injury in my 50 years of living. once when i was a small child, swinging, i fell off
of the swing and landed on the back of my head...no wonder i had frightening headaches in
my teens. then when i fell off of a cliff in the grand canyon in 1992, compared to my other
more motor related traumas, my thinking was not the priority in that assessment. still i did
have a split on the head that pumped blood from the wound and i was i am sure in shock from
the whole incident.
as well i fell off of an 10 foot wall in maui one year. two black eyes and a broken nose. my
face felt like that monster from the halloween movie, fractured into sections of bones, compressed
by my free fall from the coconut tree i was climbing. i really think that if the surface that i
fell from was rock, i would have been dead but the sand was insulative and i survived with a few
cuts and bruises. i am still feeling the somatic imprint of that time, even now three years later.
now this one, being so isolated, i am recalling that brain injuries are accumulative. the brain
does not forget all the incidents. it keeps a file of the trauma and the dramas so that in time,
with skilled practitioners, the wound can be unwound. as more and more people are learning
the capacity of the computer and its functions of memory, i am learning that the body has a
skilled capacity to heal as well as record incidents to be dealt.
some of us are fortunate to see that capacity to store and work on the tapes.
others go on to exhibit the reactionary symptoms
but never touching on the source reason for the reactions. they go on creating new situations
to awaken the lessons to be learned. we are all unique in our journey. ultimately we die with
all our stories...hopefully we will have the time and good fortune to heal and recover so that the
life we are living is received on clean recording, not over layered over something that may fester
