So yesterday I woke up dizzy and sinusy, feeling sick, in pain and just out of it. So I gave up early, canceling my breakfast meeting, and crawled back into bed to be miserable.
I was taking Sinusalia, my favorite health food store sinus remedy (sometimes CVS carries it and my flu favorite Oscillococcinum), and alternating that every couple of times with Thuja, a remedy from the homeopathic part of a natural foods and remedies store that works easily for me. I also took Emergen-C, a terrific bubbly drink with a thousand mg of C and lots of B – stress vitamins.
I was also doing Reiki on myself, both directly and distance. I knew it was going to be okay at some point and just wanted it to speed up. And I double-checked Louise Hay’s Heal Your Body, so I’d have a sense of why I was sick this particular way. Which is always helpful, but thinking was not easy in that state.
I did sleep most of the morning, but by afternoon, sleep was not going to do it. As luck – or Spirit – or my intuition would have it, I had been at a book swap on Saturday, and picked up 3 Charlaine Harris volumes – 2 Sookie Stackhouse vampire stories, and one from a series of hers I hadn’t read, featuring Harper Connelly, who speaks to dead bodies. I couldn’t believe I was doing that, because I know how addictive they are. But they were perfect to read yesterday, when my brain would not be quiet, but I couldn’t really think.
Harper is not psychic, except for talking to the dead – which seems a bit odd to me, since I am psychic – but I took Harper at her word. I got through that entire book – very satisfying – Charlaine has maybe the greatest fantasy imagination on the planet at the moment. The pace is great, but sometime I’d like her to slow down a bit.
This one was titled Grave Secret, and is a mystery with so many threads – that all get pulled together very skillfully – that a flow chart is almost needed to keep track. Quite fun.
And then I went on to read half of a Sookie Stackhouse – I’ll report on that when I finish.
p.s. Thanks to son Brian for bringing over excellent hot soup during his busy day!
