Having faced a serious health challenge this year, one which threatened to alter the course of my life I have finally stepped out of it's grasp, the tentacles of dis-ease have slithered away into oblivion disappearing into the ether of yesterday, my health now restored.
Walking the path of the heart has been a demanding and relentless road to travel, as it has not allowed me to hide from the turmoil that had locked its self inside my body, festering and feeding of the negativity of past thoughts, words and deeds.
Following my heart and going totally against mainstream medical treatments I chose to heal myself with herbs and love. This method of treatment was not embraced by family and friends, who with seeing no quick fix thought I was mad for sticking to healing my body vessel with plants and meditation.
One month on however everyone is seeing a vast difference in my health, the dis-ease within has whithered and is being shed, my vitality has returned, my pain released.
We are taught that herbal medicines and alternative treatments are nothing but hocus pocus, yet modern medical treatments often only mask the symptoms, and in many cases cause further damage as the chemical concoctions wreak havoc with the delicate balance of our body.
Standing firm in what resonated to the core of my being has been a difficult course to follow, for allowing the pain to be and feeling into it, not concealing it with pain relief has tested me so deeply, there were times when I wondered how much more I could endure as I was stopped by pain so intense that for a brief moment I thought that nothing would shift it.
The traditions of our ancestors have so much to offer, especially in this modern world where most lives are lived in a constant state of imbalance, where food is no longer real, medicine is deadly mix of dangerous chemicals and life is full of unnatural stresses.
The call of the forefathers are beckoning us to remember the simplicity of life, it is calling us to return to the way of peace, truth and love, to see past the illusion of mainstream society and to return to the path of the heart, to heal my beloved Pachamama and all who dwell upon her ravaged lands........
