I am still no further with getting an MRI for my shoulder. Fingers and toes crossed that I’ll get a referral when I see the GP next week.
What this has taught me is patience, and that to listen to the universe more. Most likely, she’s been tapping away at me for ages and finally gave up and knocked me over! It reminds me of this story,
A fellow was stuck on his rooftop in a flood. He was praying to God for help.
Soon a man in a rowboat came by and the fellow shouted to the man on the roof, “Jump in, I can save you.”
The stranded fellow shouted back, “No, it’s OK, I’m praying to God and he is going to save me.”
So the rowboat went on.
Then a motorboat came by. “The fellow in the motorboat shouted, “Jump in, I can save you.”
To this the stranded man said, “No thanks, I’m praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith.”
So the motorboat went on.
Then a helicopter came by and the pilot shouted down, “Grab this rope and I will lift you to safety.”
To this the stranded man again replied, “No thanks, I’m praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith.”
So the helicopter reluctantly flew away.
Soon the water rose above the rooftop and the man drowned. He went to Heaven. He finally got his chance to discuss this whole situation with God, at which point he exclaimed, “I had faith in you but you didn’t save me, you let me drown. I don’t understand why!”
To this God replied, “I sent you a rowboat and a motorboat and a helicopter, what more did you expect?”
What I also learnt from a friend is that the left side of our bodies reflect our feminine energy. All my injuries tend to happen on the left side of my body. Whilst the scientist in me says that it’s because I have scoliosis, and therefore I will always be prone to increased load on one side more than the other, the emotional, intuitive side of me says there must be another reason.
I do know about masculine and feminine energy. I do know what they need to be in balance, and when they aren’t, there will be an impact on our physical, emotional and spiritual selves. Do I really appreciate that fact?
If I’m honest, I can so totally see that I am, and have been suppressing my feminine energy for years. And it’s time that I start paying attention to that and do something about it.
You may feel that it’s a tad “woo woo”, but hey, who knows, right?
And, what of the placebo effect?
So, work in progress …
