I want to share with you one of the earliest beginnings of my body talk spirit healing, and how this came into being. When I was a teenager, I had bad monthly periods and menstrual cycles. I had a lot of pain. At that time, I was very angry at my brothers because they didn't have to go through this. I was angry about a lot of things because I was a girl and I had certain expectations. The boys seemed to have different things that I was jealous of and wanted to have.
Every time I got my period in high school, I would go to the nurse's office and be in such bad pain. There's nothing they could do. I would lie on the bathroom floor in the nurse's office in this private bathroom. I curled up on the floor because it was cool and I had incredible pain. One time, I heard these girls talking about how they were taking muscle relaxants to help them with their menstrual cramps. As I lay there on the floor that day, I thought, "Maybe I can relax my muscles. That might help."
I don't know how I knew to do this, but I traveled inside my body and went to the place of the pain. I began to talk to my body and said, "Sweetie, what's going on? Is there something wrong? Do we need to go to the doctor? Why do we have all this pain?" I began to talk to my body and say, "You're very important. This part of my body or this reproductive system is important. We're going to have a child one day. This is beautiful. Thank you so much. If we need to go to the doctor, let me know. If something is wrong, let me know."
As I began to talk to my body, the pain lightened up. I began to appreciate that part of my body more and let it know that I was there and I was curious about all this pain. I relaxed the muscles around it. I'm like, "Let's relax those muscles and see what happens." The pain went away. The pain was completely gone. I let my body know, "If there's anything that you need, or if we need to go to the hospital or something, let me know. Thank you so much. I appreciate you."
The funny thing was the pain never came back. I was young. I had many years of menstrual cycles to go through. The pain not only didn't come back but I didn't have any symptoms. From then on, I didn't even know I had my period until I saw the evidence. This was such a massive shift. I didn't use any medicine or anything. I began to talk to my body. The odd thing I noticed too was I had a lot of anger and resentment toward my brothers. I grew up with a lot of brothers around me.
I didn't have any sisters until I was about six. I come from a big family. There were seven kids altogether. What I noticed was I couldn't hang onto the anger and resentment and have no pain. Part of the deal that seemed to happen was I couldn't be in a place of anger and have no pain in my body. That was something I noticed that I noticed later. I'm like, "I'm not angry anymore."
As a side note, at the time I'm making this episode, I'm 63 at this point. I went through the end of my menstrual cycle menopause. I didn't have any symptoms. It went away. I had half of one hot flash. I didn't expect to have any. My mother also told me once that it was very mild and that menopause was wonderful for her. They went away. There was none of those menopause symptoms at all.
One time, I went to my doctor years after my period stopped. I'm sorry. This is personal female stuff but it's good to hear. It's open to everyone. She goes, "When was your last period?" I started laughing. I'm like, "I don't know. It was so long ago. I don't remember." She goes, "What do you mean? You haven't stopped your menstrual cycles." I said, "It has been so long. I don't remember."
I do have a child. That was such a benefit. She couldn't believe me because I had no symptoms. I looked like I still had my period. She gave a test and she goes, "You are post-menopausal." I'm like, "I knew that. I could have told you that." She was like, "I've never seen anything like this. There are no symptoms and this thing." That was interesting. I wanted to share that with you. Since then, I've been doing body talk if I have an illness or surgery.
The body has so much wisdom. When we honor it, the body heals faster and gives us a better life.
It's letting the spirit in, talking to the body, and getting messages from the body, which is awesome because the body has so much wisdom. We honor the body. When we do this work, the body loves it. The body responds and heals faster. We have a better life. Pain is important. We have to have pain in life, but when we don't need to have pain, that's something that we can work on. I care about you. Let me know what you're interested in and what you want to hear about. I'm curious to hear that. Thank you so much. Have a great day. Take care.
