Migraine Treatment Report

I had my next healing session with my Neurological Integration practitioner, Guy, last Friday.  I’m losing count, was that my fourth session?  My last visit was December 21st

Anyway, I told him how, on the journey home from the last session, I had hit the most spectacular migraine, which stayed with me for over a week and moved into the worst depression yet.  I could tell Guy was dismayed to hear this.  He had warned me I might get a kick-back reaction from the healing session, but from his reaction I could tell that nothing like this was expected.  He mentioned I had also had a migraine after the session before. 

He asked how things were at that moment and I explained I had a headache along with a cold but didn’t feel ‘right’ and could tell I was going down with a migraine.  Truth be told, it had started a few days earlier but my beloved soul sister’s love and care, alongside the remarkable loving regard I had got from my mother, had waylaid it.  There’s learning here, it seems, something can be done to avoid or delay a migraine, possibly.

Guy got to work and found the mercury in my brain was being managed now by my antibodies, so that was good news because it had been on my mind.  He reassured me it’s common but I didn’t feel reassured, I just felt bad for us all that we have this silent, secret threat.  I had been shocked by the similarity with mercury toxicity symptoms and migraine aura symptoms and wonder how often this goes under the radar.

He then discovered that ‘the conductor of my orchestra’, as he refers to the hypothalamus in my brain, had gone to sleep and he found my ‘fight-flight response’ had been switched on again, so I was in meercat heightened vigilance stance again.  Both these issues were put right.  I got the impression that the big migraine attack had screwed with my brain a bit.  No wonder I lost my ability to see reason and found myself hypervigilant for ‘attack’ signs, in the form of evidence that I wasn’t loved.  That seems to be the common theme for me when the darkness descends.  Maybe that will change, with my mum’s revelation and the opening the heart exercise.

Guy also found a few other areas that needed tweaking and tension in my neck which wasn’t previously there.  When I got off the couch at the end of the session, I was feeling rough, bad head, pressure, swimmy and vision affected in ways only a migraine can do.  I was well out of sorts as I walked up and down the room and had a thirty minute drive down the motorway to get home.  Guy was worried and he set me the task to walk up and down the waiting room for thirty minutes whilst he saw to his next patient.  Then he treated me some more, finding my neck was still stiff.  Some manipulations later, it was easing.  I was slightly improved and felt my body and brain would give me the break I needed to drive myself home.  I made a prayer out loud in the car, asking for protection for myself and others during the journey, just to make sure. 

Once again, no sooner was I home than it came over me fully.  I was so dozey, there was no option but to go and lie down.  I slept for three hours and woke feeling much better, although I still had a developing cold virus and moderate migraine.  I was able to completely surrender to it, there was no depression this time, just no energy and nothing to do but lie down and rest. 

Guy didn’t arrange another appointment with me this time, instead, he said he would phone me to see how I am after a week.  Maybe he’s losing hope that he can help me.

Healing The Heart of the Earth is my blog and the Home of Four Branches Healing which is the shamanic and energy healing service of myself, Amanda Reid. My blog focuses on my spiritual thoughts, feelings and experiences throughout a daily life blessed with the freedom to be and do many of my favourite things. Coupled with the lessons, messages and challenges that certain physical conditions bring to me from time to time, namely migraine aura and osteoarthritis. Sometimes, I face outwards and focus on bringing healing to others, sometimes, I need to face inwards and focus on my own healing and growth. My passions include walking in the woodlands and working with the trees, strolling along beaches and swimming in the seas. I approach most things from the perspective of a worker with energy, looking for the energetic dynamic and using it to bring healing, hope, love, faith and manifestation into my life and those of others who cross my path, in as much as I am able. My path is wholly within the vibrations of the divine, particularly the feminine principle of the divine, whose current expression is enabling a balance of male and female energy for humanity. One day, we will be ready to embrace the non-gender reality of the cosmic levels completely, but for now, the divine feminine is bringing her loving and compassionate energy to balance out and bring healing to the millenia of masculine divine energy that has been expressing itself on Earth. If there was only one thing I could say to you, it is this, you are divine. It matters not who you are, you are divine. You have no reason to accept what I say, but I still wish for you to know it, not with your thoughts and mind but in such a way that you feel and experience the truth of it, embrace and embody it. You are divine. You and every other being you know. By divine, I mean you are made up of the same stuff as what we call God, what I call the Creator. At our core, all of us are that pure, that perfect, that magnificent and that wise. We are, however, a little more complicated than that, consisting of a number of elements that go together to make who we are in this, our present personality, in this, our current incarnation on Earth. Take that divine core and add a rather confused and easily bruised personality/ego with a severe memory problem, starting out (again) as a little baby, growing up in a hurt and challenging world, amongst a population of people all going through the same thing, all trying to work it out. The divine core, at soul level, is more like a passenger, its voice not heard for all the noise of our physical existence; the desires, the emotions, the struggles, the suffering, the pain, the fears. All of it, illusion, just a very convincing one. I’m one of many who are waking up. Are you one who is waking up? Confusing, isn’t it? But worth it. There truly is no other way, this is simply the best game in town and we are ascending. Wake up with me and embrace your divine nature. You are more than welcome, you are my reason for being here.

  1. Beloved sister, I know how difficult and disappointing the return of the migraine is, and I don’t need to tell you to keep hope alive. You are hanging on to every little bit in the hopes it can help. You already know that Guy is not giving up in you and losing hope, but that the reason he wants to phone you is most likely because he was worried about you driving in such condition. He needs you more stable and if you should be further ahead responding to treatment, then maybe that next one is in him. Sending you love and healing vibes. Look at your scroll and poem and know that you are loved. Xo

      1. Best news and that makes my day. I sensed that the darkness was knocking and I am truly proud of you and happy that you managed to transform it this times. I know it might not always happen, but you have your proof that it can be done. Xoxo
