I’m breaking this story up into multiple posts, because man, am I extra-verbose lately. Maybe it’s the percocet after surgery, or maybe it’s just that I’m excited to have someone to talk to while laid up in bed with my foot propped sky high, but I am just a-rambling away.
It occurs to me that you might be wondering something.
With all the different types of help and healing I received, how do I know which ones were effective, and which were superfluous?
Good question. But then I would respond with this: Does it really matter?
Let’s face it, if I got the result I desired (successful surgery, with rapid effective recovery), does it matter if some components of healing were key, while others turned out to just be “fluff.”
I mean, this is not a surgery formula that I need, right? If I were a surgeon who wanted to know which energy pairing went best with certain types of surgery, then I would be checking in to see what’s most beneficial…does it change per surgery, does it change per patient, does it change per surgeon, hospital, prior history, etc., etc., etc.?
But I’m just a chick who wanted to allay some fears, which I did, and have a highly successful foot surgery, which I did, and have a speedy recovery (which time will soon tell). So if there were some added ingredients that weren’t essentialy, I’m OK with that.
And it’s even possible that it had to all combine just so, to make a magic formula per se, to bring it all together.
But I’m not one to get too hung up on processes. I find that solutions come easier and work better when they are received in the moment.
For other healers, that’s not the case. For example, with Pranic healing, there are protocols to follow, step by step. Doesn’t make them any more or less effective than an in-the-moment inspired solution.
As I often say, I’m a big fan of “whatever works.”
That’s why I put together the Truth Testing teachings. To help you ascertain for yourself the best course of action in any situation or circumstance — even preparing for something big, like a surgery.
Now, if/when I choose to have bunion surgery on the other foot (my doc only does 1 at a time, as he says it takes the body far longer to heal when both are done at once) I will check in at that time, to assess what fears/anxieties I have, where to go for help, and who to ask, and what work to do on myself.
But I can tell you this for sure: I will once again request my neighbor as my anesthesiologist. She is fantastic. 🙂
