Body TalkĀ 

As anyone who has ever dropped in here knows, I have always had huge problems with menstruation. This is what this post is about. It might not be for you so feel free to stop reading at this point. 

I started seeing a Body Talk practitioner in April or May. I didn’t know much about it but after my first session I was hooked. My practitioner, Mel, uses Body Talk as a base and has/is developing her own, very intuitive style, encompassing more than Body Talk. 

It is highly effective. 

Perspective. I have never known periods without huge blood flow, cramps and migraines. I managed to get the PMS under control in terms of emotions but Body Talk has eradicated the physical signs. It has also stemmed the bleeding. 

For the first time in thirty plus years, I have had consecutive ‘normal’ periods, as described by my sister who has never had my type of period. I still have migraines (we will work on those next if the magnesium fails). But heavy blood flow, excessive bloating, continual discomfort – gone. 

Mel is amazing as a healer. If I had known earlier, I would have used it earlier, and for my IVF cycles even though I trust I am exactly where I am meant to be. 

If you want her number, message me. 

Day 4

Body Talk. I am grateful for Mel, my Body Talk practitioner. If you have never heard of it, google it. I do warn you now that some of the following refers to my periods. I’ll do that bit last-ish. 

Body Talk is a process of natural healing. The practitioner scans your body for area/s in need of priority healing and then provides like a tune up or session of reprogramming for the corresponding part of your body. The practitioner does this through energy healing and tapping on your head and sternum, which also locks the programming in. I think I have that mostly right (I hope). 

I love it. As soon as we start I can feel the energy (chi) swirling throughout my body. I tried to describe the sensation today. The closest thing I could use was when you are really drunk and lie down and the entire room spins. With Body Talk, for me, that swirling isn’t the whole room but just everything inside of me. And it isn’t a heavy, sick feeling but more like a light energy with lots of glitter and sparkles. 

My first session was to try and remedy my periods. Some of you may want to stop reading now. Or at least the next couple of sentences so I’ll leave some extra space …

Since I was fourteen, my experience every month has been horrific. Cramps, migraines, bloating, vomit, huge blood clots, heavy blood flow. I had never known what a ‘normal’ experience was like. 

Until my last period, two weeks after my first Body Talk session. No cramping. No clots. No vomit. Very light blood loss. Unfortunately, the migraine stayed. It was amazing. 

The most amazing part aside from this, was that as Mel worked on me, I could feel her hand talking to my body and FELT my body talk back, my uterus in particular. It was phenomenal. 

And it yielded unbelievable results. 

If only I had utilised it during my infertility journey … If only … 

A Conspiring Universe

Just sometimes you can see or feel the universe at work. Just sometimes, and when you do, it is magical. 

My anxiety has been up this week, quite significantly. Every moment, every conversation, every decision, has been agonizing. 

I have a new found understanding of what suffering with anxiety is like. I do not wish it on anyone. Mostly because it is debilitating and/or exhausting depending on how hard you fight it. And either way, because it steals your life from you. I’m working and for the most part, I’m functioning at work, but my life is gone. 

I can’t do both. 

And the resolution I had hoped would come before the holidays, allowing me to recover and reconnect, has not come. 

I have, at least, another two to three weeks of uncertainty ahead of me. And my fear is that the toll from my anxiety will be larger as time goes on. 

I’m open to strategies. I’m open to try. 

Yesterday I booked in to attend an Alana Fairchild workshop in Berry in May. By myself. Huge. 

And last night I messaged a friend to let her know that Alana was returning to Berry. She replied. And talk turned to her business in Body Talk. I did some quick reading and I booked in for this afternoon.

This will not do the session justice. It was amazingly empowering. My anxiety dissolved during the session. It’s back but it is minimal and a different type – more like a nervous excitement. It might not be anxiety. 

Anyway, Body Talk is not necessarily well known as an alternative therapy. My practitioner, my friend, is very accomplished. I went in open and without expectation. 

I felt it working immediately. 

The practitioner utilises sections within the body, energy and tapping (on the head and on the sternum) to ‘reprogram’ the way the body is working. I could feel my body talking to Mel and I could feel her responses.

I know it sounds nonsensical. If someone was telling me this, I think I would be dubious. But … I experienced it. Immediately. And I left whole. My body felt together. My voice was stronger. I felt open again. 

I’m sold. Bugger medicine for healing the soul.

Thanks Mel.
