Most of us bonk our heads at least a few times in our lives or, if you’re like me, many times a year. Most bonks are light and harmless, but once in a while you get a harder bonk that makes you #$@#%#. This morning, I discovered a really good way to heal from one of those #%@# bonks.
I had to put a flea control product on my cats’ neck. My cat, Blackie (yes, very original name, I know, he came with the name), thinks flea stuff is evil torture and was hiding under a chair under the dining room table. I crawled under the table to grab him and, naturally, as soon as I was about to nab him he ran away. (You’d think I would know better since he does this every time… but I always hope I’ll be faster…)
I backed up on all fours and got up and BONK!!! Yeah, I hadn’t backed up far enough. Ow! Ow! OWW!!! OWWWW! It was a good one. My other cat, Sapi (whose name was Sappy until I changed it, poor thing) – my calm one – brushed up against my legs in sympathy.
After my initial 20 OWs and much head rubbing, I decided to try to reduce the pain on and in my poor noggin. When you have pain, especially an acute pain like when you’ve just hit yourself hard, the energy emitted from that point is a lot like the vertical, zigzaggy lines you see in cartoons, along with a lot of colours:
To heal that pain, no need to reach for the wine, just focus on the opposite: calm, horizontal lines and no colour, hence white. I visualized all white around and in my head, and I focused for a few seconds on many white lines of calm (Your Line of Calm) going through my head, especially at the point of contact where the pain was concentrated.
I repeated that about four or five times in the hour that followed the bonk, especially when my head hurt. Twice, I also visualized very bright, white light around and in the area that was hit. And I complimented my head, “You heal so fast!”
Now, over an hour later, my head barely hurts anymore AND I managed to wrestle the cat to put flea stuff on his neck. I even gave him treats to fool him into believing it’s a pleasant experience… hasn’t worked so far, but I keep trying.
Keep trying. You can heal if you believe you can.
Don’t be afraid to adapt the technique to make it your own. Go ahead and try whatever comes to you. If your intention is to heal for your highest good, you can’t hurt yourself.
