It was around 4 in the afternoon when it happened…………
I was alone in my office working hard on a marketing campaign to launch my new coaching business when I collapsed to the floor, writhing in agony.
I had never felt pain like it before. All I could do was moan loudly, clutching my belly.
Fortunately some people were passing by outside on the pavement. The door was open, so they came in and called a doctor. The surgery was nearby and one of the doctors came over to see me straight away.
He took a couple of minutes to check me out, and immediately phoned for an ambulance. I was given gas and air and rushed to hospital.
After a series of tests and x-rays, they told me I had acute TWISTED BOWEL. They wanted to get me into the operating theatre for surgery. I didn’t know much about twisted bowel at the time, but I did know that it caused a lot of pain and they were taking it seriously.
If you don’t know what Twisted Bowel is, please read the description below taken from md-health.com
“Twisted bowel is caused when the natural shape of the intestines has changed or a section of the intestines overlap. Diagnosing twisted bowel quickly is essential, as leaving this condition unchecked can cause damage that may lead to infection or death.”
OK, so I could have died from this
That wasn’t really on my agenda at the time! I was only 46.
Later I heard stories of people and animals, such as horses, that have died from twisted bowel and realized that I was very fortunate not to be one of them.
As it happened I didn’t have any surgery or medication.
“You don’t need to go through with this operation. You can deal with this twisted bowel thing on your own.”
And then the words came to me:
“Do what you love. Make A Difference With Healing Sounds”
So there I was lying on a trolley, still writhing in agony trying to make sense of all this, and then this healing process came to me:-
“Surround yourself with a warm vibrant light energy of healing and unconditional love
Breathe in and out in long, slow, deep breaths
Visualise the warm, vibrant light energy streaming in through your head into your heart
Allow the feeling of love and compassion for yourself to grow in your heart
Visualise yourself fit and well, living a happy life
Allow the feelings of love, the warm vibrant light energy and your visualisation of a happy, healthy life to radiate out from your heart into every aspect of your being as you release vocal sounds (letting out a deep groan was easy under the circumstances ☺)
Surrender and let go.”
So that’s what I did, lying there in the busy Accident and Emergency room (as they call it here in the UK).
And, do you know what? After just a few short minutes, the pain started subsiding. And after another few minutes it disappeared altogether.
WOW! There was no need for the operation. The Bowel Untwisted naturally. Amazing!
To cut a long story short, they kept me in overnight to keep an eye on me, and the next morning I walked out. I’ve not had a problem with my bowel since that time, over 10 years ago.
So what did I learn from this?
I had allowed myself to get way too stressed in launching a new coaching business. I’ve no doubt that the stress was a major factor in causing my Twisted Bowel. The plan I had set to create a separate coaching business wasn’t right for me. I had to let that go and allow something more appropriate for me to emerge. I learned to integrate the coaching models and techniques into what I was already doing. So now, health and wellness coaching is merged into my therapy practice, and I love it!
I discovered in my own experience how powerful these techniques can be for healing: deep breathing, activating feelings of unconditional love, setting a positive intention, releasing vocal tones and surrendering into the NOW. I went on a quest to learn more about all these techniques. In particular I studied sound healing therapy and the science behind healing with love and intention.
We can all access this powerful healing formula to help ourselves and others to overcome acute and chronic health challenges. This basic formula is natural, free and easy. We can apply it anywhere, anytime.
From where I am now, I can see that the Twisted Bowel was my wake-up call. I could have died. Instead, I respected the wisdom of my Higher Self and stepped into a new way of being.
I allowed some big changes to occur in my life. The healing went deep. I can share more about that another time. I paid attention to the message I was given…..
I’m happy now. I love what I do. I make a difference. I help others with Healing Sounds.
