Jumping forward to this week, my oldest son came back from a spring break trip with influenza B. Within 24 hours, I had succumbed as well. Any time my kids or I get sick, I check in with higher powers as to what would be the best treatment path for us. For my son, it was a goldenseal blend plus vitamin C. For me, I got told I needed vitamin D plus other things that I am already on because of my Lyme treatment.
Two days into the illness, I went to see my chiropractor. We’d texted beforehand, so he knew I was coming in with the flu; he knew as I do that chiropractic work makes it much easier for my body to fight whatever it is up against. The session went well and was not unexpected for me: My body was more interested in talking about the Lyme that was rapidly dying off because of the fever the flu is inducing.
On the way home, I ran into a local establishment where I had called in an order for several salads so that I wouldn't have to prepare foods over the next few days. I was in the store for less than two minutes (and I took germ spreading precautions), but when I went back out to the car, it would not start. I was feeling terrible and wasn't at home; this was not where I wanted to be stuck. Mercifully, one of the employees was able to jump my car and chatted with me from a safe distance while we waited for enough juice to start my car.
Five minutes later, the car died while I was going 55 mph on a major road coming home. Thankfully, I was at the top of a hill, and when I got to the bottom of the hill, I was able to pull over next to an inlet area. There wasn't enough power in the car for my flashers to even work. The temperature was only in the 70s, but it was 100% full sun. I grabbed my Kindle and went to sit over on the blacktop inlet. Between my fever, the sun, and the blacktop, I was sweating up a storm for the half-hour until my ex-husband could get there and get my car going again.
I’m sure if outsiders were to listen in to my conversations with my spirit guides, many would think me a madwoman. Most of us talk to ourselves, though not all of us get answers back from unseen others! Once I got home from the whole ordeal, I complained to my spirit guides about how hot and sweaty I was. Someone responded to me, “That was the point!” Clearly they hadn't meant that I needed Vitamin D in a bottle: They wanted me to get it straight from the source with a good deal of sweating included.
What’s amazing is that after I napped when I got home, I woke up feeling WAY better than I had in the previous 48 hours. All of that sun and sweat had done me good. In addition, my body had been able to tolerate all the chemical exposures to the engine and exhaust toxins along this adventure. Not so long ago, an event like this would have given me a fibro flare at a minimum and most likely a bonus migraine, too. My liver is in better shape and is handling chemical exposures better.
When crazy things happen around me, I trust that higher powers are involved and there is a reason for it all even if I can’t understand it all. I now have a translation for that symbol I saw in my vision, plus I know that I can handle more than I previously could with regards to exhaust. Moreover, this flu is serving a major purpose in my life of helping my immune system fight off the Lyme at a faster rate than it could previously. Never would I have thought that I would be grateful for the flu or car trouble, but here I am, seeing these challenges as unexpected blessings in my life!
