In the last few years I was so busy to deepen my understanding about emotions, our behavior towards life events and what actually energy healing means that I completely forgot that there are also many physical causes that make us feel tired or weak!
The lack of vitamins or mineral salts can really have an impact on our daily life too and last week I consulted this fantastic book after a long time! Now I am taking care of myself also with proper intake of food to increase the level of iron and vitamin B12 and C (these vitamins help the absorption of the iron) but what I find even more interesting is how I found it out.
I was laying down on my bed, resting and attuning into my body and see what I really need to get better. And BOOOOOMMMM an image of my mother telling me that I should take the iron supplement as prescribed by the family doctor! I was 12 or 13 years old when I had a "cure" for a while and my body clearly reminded me about it.
A month ago I was also in a festival as volunteer doing Shadow Theater and the lunch was offered by the organization but there was not vegetarian option, only chicken! Therefore after 5 years not eating meat, I decided to be flexible due to the circumstances and have it anyway. I was pretty surprised how I reacted to the sensation of eating the chicken: I was clearly craving for it, I was so happy, my body language was obviously screaming "yes!! finally!!!" and I even had a second round!!
However I did not give an interpretation for it, I did not give myself the time to attune and understand the reason why of that reaction. Now it is clear that I suffer from Anemia!
I am grateful that almost a year ago I learned the technique called Focusing, allowing me to identify my deeper body sensations and getting imagines or voices. This allows me to understand what I really need (in many levels) and give myself the care that I need.
What would be even more interesting is to discover why I suffered from anemia since I was young!! Maybe in another Focusing self-care session!
