I must have been in a very clumsy mood yesterday as I banged my little toe very badly, twice, within 30 minutes. At first I didn’t think much of it, except how bad it hurt, but as I could move it and it wasn’t obviously broken, I put it to the back of my mind. That was except for the times when I had to move about – it hurt, like hell, then.
I was disappointed that I couldn’t go for my evening walk to the woods with my partner. It is something we have been doing a lot of recently. The evening before was lovely; I got some great photos of the sun streaming through the branches which made some trees look like they were on fire in places. We also got caught in a very heavy downpour that evening, which was great. I love the rain and am not adverse to getting wet. Also heavy showers can help lift your mood because the air becomes charged with positive ions, or so I remember from being told at university. It certainly helped lift my spirits.
So, as my partner went off for a walk, I decided to put my time alone to good use and meditate. These days I hardly find enough time to do it, or rather to do it as often as I would like, so I jumped at the opportunity. I went to my work room, closed the blinds and lit a few candles and some incense and took my socks off, spending a minute checking over the hurt toe, but it was only a little red.
I then proceeded to sing, which is currently one of my favourite methods of raising energy. And the strangest thing happened…in my slightly dazed-like state, I felt goosebumps spread up my arms and across my scalp. I shivered, like I had a chill up my spine. It felt that my hair was standing on end, though I checked and it wasn’t ;-). The only time that I have ever come close to feeling anything like this is when working with Spirit. But this seemed different. But I didn’t dwell on it, I tried to move on to the meditation, which after a few slight distractions, was uneventful, except for the message that today is going to be a good day.
That night as I was getting into bed, I checked again on my little toe as I worried about knocking it in my sleep. I was surprised to find that only a couple of hours after last checking it, my toe was now one big black-blue bruise – no wonder the thing hurt! But it made me wonder one thing, whether my experience during my meditation was a healing one, speeding up the recovery of my little toe and drawing out the bruise. I slept fine through the night without any painkillers, and this morning the pain has subsided greatly and I can more or less move around again. It’s just a thought. Alternatively, is this the power of suggestion at work?
Another thought that crossed my mind is whether the message that today is going to be a good day because my toe is almost healed or whether there is another reason? I suppose I shall just have to be patient and see what happens…
I hope everyone else has a good day too,
