    Default Please send healing, prayers

    I really messed up my right ankle yesterday, spent too much time on it when it was already challenged, and it seems I may have torn a ligament or something like that.
    I went to the local ER today and got an Xray; no broken bones, but the doctor said he could see that the arthritis is pretty bad in that leg, which does the most work since my other leg was badly injured years ago.

    Back home now, I can barely move, can't put weight on it, even with my crutches I have very limited mobility, and I live alone, so don't have anyone to help.
    Hopefully I can get some help after the weekend, but I don't think any efforts will succeed before that.
    I am told icing it will help, but it's so cold here now (winter came 2 months early this year to the Ozarks, as elsewhere), I'm afraid if I do that, I'll end up with a cold as well.
    I have not been taking any pain pills, though I have a prescription and some on hand.
    I try to avoid doing that, relying instead on supplements, healthy diet, clean living, etc.
    But I may have to resort to pills, because I don't think I will be able to sleep at all otherwise.
    Please send healing if you can, and any prayers, all of which will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks so much
    Best wishes,
    Natalie

    Oh my, Natalie, I went through the same kind of thing this past summer with my knee. R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression, elevation) actually did help me. I used high dose ibuprofen for the pain for a week, and it took the inflammation down. Like you, I had to use crutches for 2 or 3 weeks. And a rub with frankincense oil, magnesium spray, and Penetrex really helped the pain too. Once on the mend, I added several supplements to help heal.

    Natalie - beside my prayers sent, it might be possible that we live close enough here in the Ozarks that I could offer some assistance? I am totally healed up now, and would be glad to help. You can message me.

    Sending my surge of concern and care your way. I LOVE YOU !! I know this may sound trivial but have you tried holding your ankle for a really long time while you focus on love and healing and praise for its wholeness? I worked in a grocery deli and one day fell on my knees on concrete while carrying a heavy tray. I sat and held my knees for about 15 minutes. There was no pain or bruising. It did hurt at first but while holding my knees the pain left.

    I also recommend this technique. Actually I have used it for so long that it may be what I used about my knees?

    Quote Inner Body Awakening –
    This is an enjoyable, easy and comforting method for becoming more aware of our Inner Body. The Inner Body also known as the Etheric Body is an exact duplicate of our ideal physical body. This Etheric Body is what leaves our physical bodies when we have an out of body experience or pass on to our next existance. The Inner Body is what creates, feeds, and heals our physicalbodies. Contacting and truly feeling and inhabiting this Inner Body assists in us being comfortable in and being able to relax & enjoy our bodies. People have reported whole new relationships and healings with their bodies by doing just this simple method.

    Our bodies are miracle healing machines. How do the cells know where to stop growing when healing a wound or a cut? How can our bodies so perfectly rebuild themselves?

    There is an ‘Inner Body’ an energy etheric blueprint that the physical cells are being directed by when healing or replacing cells. Cancer is an obvious time when the ‘blueprint’ is no longer instructing the cells when to stop growing and they are replicating out of order.

    This ‘Etheric Body’ is the body we astral travel in when we have ‘out of body experiences’. It is also the ‘perfected body’ that leaves us at death. It’s the ageless beautiful ideal body that we have in ‘heaven’. Wow, sounds good doesn’t it? Why can’t we have this body here and now?

    WE CAN…if we actively connect and contact our Inner body we can assist and co-operate with our bodies at a much higher level. Most of us today simply allow the body to do what it does unconsciously, outside of our awareness. The body performs – digestion, cell repair, healing, cleaning, lymphatic system circulation, heart beat, etc. without us being consciously aware of it. But there are Yogi’s that can stop their hearts, cease their breathing, do ‘miraculous’ healings and they are in conscious awareness of their bodies’ inner functions. The Inner Body Awakeningmethod helps us to become more in touch with our inner bodies. It will keep us healthier, looking and feeling younger, and it feels really good. But careful because if this gets around we’ll start putting the cosmetics companies out of business!

    METHOD:
    - Feel your hands, feel each finger, each finger tip, the palm, the top, every detail, feel the energy of your hands. Feel the Inner body blueprint start to energize, tingle, vibrate in your hands. Feel your ‘inner hands’. Now do the same with your feet. Feel the Energy Body of your feet. In reflexology we have pressure points in our hands and feet that connect with all the rest of our bodies, including our internal organs. This is why we start with our hands and feet when connecting to our Inner Energy Etheric Body.

    -When you have connected with your inner hands and feet slowly let this awareness of your Inner Body spread to the rest of your body. Just let it come, let it happen. Don’t push it. Just ‘notice’, just ‘sense’ yourinner body. Keep allowing this.

    -Image in (imagine) the body you would love, that would feel good to you. Let it form in your imagination.

    - now feel as if this perfect-comfortable-enjoyable body is inside you, just under the surface of your physical body. Feel it as a ‘perfect blueprint’ of your body.

    -eventually you may find your whole body ‘pulsing’, ‘vibrating’, ‘humming’ with your attention on the Inner body.

    -Let yourself ‘bathe’ in this Inner Body energy for as long as you feel comfortable.

    Suggestion: after you have the energy moving and are feeling your Inner Body, you can place your attention on particular spots in your body that you would like to ‘heal’, energize, assist in coming back into full cooperation and functioning with the rest of your body. This is a very powerful way to assist the natural healing power of the body. As we are learning, good doctors don’t ‘heal’ us, but simply assist the body to heal itself.

    Last Christmas season, I had an amazing experience where a friend took me to the Piano Guys Christmas Concert. I was having a difficult time worrying about something and had not even realized how deep the heaviness felt but they sang this song and I wept really good tears. I sometimes put it on loop...

    I understand that you might not want to take the meds, but maybe just when you are trying to get sleep if sleep is difficult.

    Might be good to wrap it lightly with a make shift splint when you sleep so you dont accidentally move it the wrong way when you are sleeping. ( I remember when I had torn ligaments in my ankle. I finally got to sleep but woke myself up when I turned my ankle in my sleep.)

    It does suck when we lose our mobility, but take this time to catch up on some reading maybe.

    You will get better!

    Dear Natalie, I believe that every cell in the body has intelligence and I agree that placing your hands on your ankle and sending healing and love can only help, along with conscious breathing as you do it. I am sending love and comfort your way as well as belief in your body’s ability to heal itself. May you be comforted and healed. Diane

    I'm very sorry that happened.

    Do take a close look at anything and everything on the Joints and Inflammation thread. There are many things which will help. In my own case (with a knee flare-up) I did everything at once, and that absolutely worked.

    Besides diet, MSM, turmeric and borax, there are some muscle-and-joint specific homeopathic creams which with my own knees were really helpful.

    1. Topricin


    2. Hyland's Muscle Therapy Gel with Arnica
    (works for joints, too)

    This is fairly on the esoteric side, but I have found it really does work (in my case, when I can't sleep, my MAP healing team can get me to sleep within 20 minutes...):

    https://www.perelandra-ltd.com/MAP-T...ram-P1293.aspx

    Here is an except from the book with the key instructions: https://www.perelandra-ltd.com/PDF/MAP_Excerpt.pdf

    And some more info from the website: This book and the program it introduces is the result of seven years of research and work at Perelandra by Machaelle Wright with nature and the White Brotherhood. MAP (Medical Assistance Program) is easy to use for anyone who feels that his or her present medical support is not enough.

    MAP is a comprehensive medical program that addresses our general health; any specific illness, disease or condition; injuries (serious or small); our mental health; our emotional health; and our overall well-being. It is a program that connects you with the medical unit of the White Brotherhood where we are each "assigned" a team of physicians whose expertise best meets our individual needs. The only things that are required to do this program are the book and your willingness to learn the program. As a program, it couldn't be more simple. With MAP you have high quality medical assistance any time day or night-and it's at no charge.

    I can concur with Cognitive Dissident, I have been using the Peralandra tools for the past 25 years with astonishing success.

    You can use the Peralandra tools to heal not only your physical self, but mental/emotional and soul level well being.

    A lot of people may never have heard of Peralandra, this may be because they have never advertised. Its been word of mouth for decades.
    When a person is ready and can resonate with these tools, you'll never go back to old external treatments. For example, as a starter astonishing results with any excruciating pain physical and emotional can be relieved within minutes with the ETS for humans (trauma solution)

    I got some sleep last night, thankfully, and the pain is not quite as bad today.
    I will check out all the recommendations.
    One good thing about these kinds of wake-up calls is that, once we are through them, how much more we appreciate the things we normally take for granted...
    Many thanks to all the caring Avalon hearts!
    Each breath a gift...

    Hi Natalie/Onawah,

    Sorry to hear about your ankle. You asked for prayers/healing, (check), and are getting a bunch of unsolicited medical advice. hahahahaha and of course, I can add to the pile.

    Icing the injury (cryotherapy), is, to my understanding, primarily about temporarily slowing down the blood supply at the injury site. You're trying to keep swelling down. Internal bleeding/bruising can be minor and only affecting capillaries and small vessels, and may not be visible on the outer surface.

    I hate putting ice on injuries - it feels like adding "insult to injury" and can make my whole body feel cold - and can add a new different kind of pain to the injury site. But, I grit my teeth and do it because it has worked so many times for me. For me, the key is not to leave it on very long - count to 100 slowly if I have to - then take it off for a bit. Total time of icing, maybe 20 minutes in a session. Cryotherapy is typically just used during the first 24 to 48 hours after the injury. After that (assuming no new injury to the site, and that any internal bleeding has stopped), you actually want increased blood to the injury site, so you add warmth.

    Elevate the foot, all day long, all night long, only allowing it to come down as required to go to the bathroom. This may be the most effective immediate advice against pain. It is boring to be restricted to foot elevation, but it will help accomplish faster healing and alleviate much of the pain.

    CBD oil, taken internally and applied to the skin at the site of the pain should knock pain down somewhat. Cannabis oil-infused salve that contains THC can also be used on the skin (transdermally.) I have found it to work about as well as over-the-counter pain salve/patch products (but interestingly, I have read that THC is pretty poorly absorbed transdermally.) A strong cannabis strain that is primarily an indica strain (Cannabis indica), taken internally, is a powerful pain killer and can make your couch seem like the only logical place to be. It also induces sleep.

    Turmeric curcumin is the other substance that I'd say is extremely important right away, and will allow you to bypass the pharmaceutical pain relievers/NSAIDs like ibuprofen.

    My suggestions are about the immediate trauma, the "acute", rather than the long-term, chronic, joint health advice. The long-term advice is valuable, but since this just happened (acute injury to chronically impaired tissue), I thought I'd focus on the acute.

    Find some comedies to watch, to distract yourself too!

    Wishing you speedy healing and no pain!

    Ohawah, I saw this and I thought, hmmm I think I have your chart in my files. Funny, I immediately found it - a grand feat in the middle of mercury retrograde. So my 2 cents: there is a method in astrology of looking at the physical body from the perspective of the nodes. South node is the fontanel, i.e. the weakest spot for a newborn. The north node (direction in the coming life) is, naturally the feet. Yours are on the ground in Taurus. As you know, this affects your moon in 11th in Taurus. In your chart, the moon "trails behind" the north node, kinda like baggage. The moon is comfort, wants and needs... in Taurus especially bodily comfort, attachment and the love of beauty... in the 11th women friends, enjoying groups. Well, here comes transitting uranus! He is in Taurus now to stay for the next 10-ish years. Your comfort zone is about to change. I also have moon in taurus and I fully understand we dont like change I would suggest that it is time to take steps to change your living situation or family dynamic and your ankle is having none of it

    That makes a lot of sense, Lilac.
    I've moved so many times in my life, I can certainly see why my ankle would be in resistance...
    Full Moon in Taurus definitely likes staying put.
    Thanks for the input!
