I was thinking the past few weeks and I realize that this year has been changing for me. Slowly but surely in the area of my health. Particularly my migraine management.
So I have suffered for long time with migraines and I’ve tried a lot of things to help alleviate the pain when it hits. It triggered my research into Reiki a form of energy work to facilitate healing. I had some people do healings targeting my head area and there was some relief but it is sometimes not affordable. So I looked into getting certified myself so that I could do sessions on myself.
I did experience relief and I continue with self applied Reiki sessions. My results were that the pain levels are less and the days the migraine lasts has shortened a bit. All bonuses that I hope to keep in my court.
During the summer I was at a Mystic Faire and one of the vendors had some lovely crystal and Tibetan bowls. But I was intrigued by some zinc and copper rods that he was demonstrating. When I was able to try these rods out I was able to find out a bit more their purpose. Called “The Rods of Isis” they are filled with healing intent, essential oils and crystals and a few other things. Meant to help balance and align the user.
I decided to see if I felt anything while holding them. I felt warmth in my hands and then some cold traveled around my hands and feet. Then some vibrations in the hands and noticed a little swaying around my head. A bit of an imbalance, so one of the things to keep balance was to switch the rods to other hands to bring things back into alignment. Which I did and things calmed down. I also noted how I felt clearer in the head.
So yes, I decided to invest in these rods and put them together with my Reiki healings to see if I could further shorten my migraines time frame hanging on. And see if they had an impact on the pain levels. While using Reiki I was only able to shorten my migraine by about a day and pain levels only went down a few notches.
When I added the rods to the regimen I was able to get my days shortened by one additional day and the pain levels have hit the half way mark! Which is awesome because dealing with pain is worse than how long it lasts. This type of headache becomes manageable with the rods. As soon as I stopped using them as part of the healing sessions then the length and pain levels returned to the same intensity and length before adding in the rods. So, I added the rods again and experienced the same relief I mentioned before. This has become part of my routine now. There are times where the migraine kicks in and it is brutal and the rods and Reiki don’t seem to have any affect on it at all. I call it a day and just hope the next day is better.
So change has some and it is for the better health wise. Happy for now and glad to have found a tool that helps improve my overall health. Cheers! To your health.
