Affirmation, Gratitude and Healing

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) love all I have learned about healing herbs from books, the people in my life and experimenting on myself in real life (here is an image of my twisted ankle and you can see how the toes and the area just above my ankle bone are more purple, while the area in between my toes and just above my ankle bone are more yellow and less purple as that is the area I wrapped with fresh comfrey leaves for three days continuously) so after this experiment in the use of fresh local whole comfrey leaves I would say that “Comfrey is great at enhancing the healing of the body in sprained ankles for me.” I am blessed to live in a time where knowledge is available and plentiful I just need to go to a library, bookstore or the internet to get thousands of new choices on what to fill my brain with next. I am a learning machine. I choose to learn all I can about physical health, happiness, forgiveness, peace of mind, mindfulness and gratitude so that I may give and receive joy easily, openly and completely. Thank you for your time. Thank you for searching your soul for your true inner light and beauty. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Today I am grateful for cat sitting we are getting to care for TomTom our friends Simon Werner and Miho Werner‘s cat he provides me with laughter and purring, for experiencing TomTom getting use to our new home and to watch his reactions to the different animals that live on the property here with us, and for cameras as they help us to capture our earthly adventures and share our experiences. Being heard is a basic human need for being whole, healed and healthy. Who listens to you and your heart? Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. I love listening to you empathically. ♥ :~)

Today I am grateful for my ability to trust in the pharmacy of nature and the healing ability of my body as today is day 4 since I sprained my ankle and I can see a difference in the bruising where I put the fresh comfrey leaves, the area that was under the comfrey is lighter colour, while the bruise above where the comfrey was applied is much darker purple also my toes did not get comfrey and they are a bit darker (I have taken images and will post), for my ability to rest when I need to and for getting to connect with two of our friends yesterday William Barnhart and his lovely wife Marrianne. William trailered their sail boat from Mesa, Arizona to Anacortes, WA launched their boat and came up for a visit so we went to the marina where they docked their boat for the night and we brought a lovely picnic lunch of local organic greens from Mobetta Herbs and Greens, homemade rawkers, some garlic scape pesto and pepper nori rolls and Marrianna shared some lovely cheese, salad and condiments. I am thankful for all the friends we share this planet with. Bill’s boat was lovely as he rebuilt if from his artistic passion. Here is a link to his web site.http://fineartist.com/William_Barnhart_Studio.html
Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your sacred self with me. I Love You.

Affirmation, Gratitude and Twisted Ankle

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) have a body that heals quickly and completely. I care for my body with ice, rest, love and healing energy. I allow the energy of the Universe to flow into every cell of my being and heal my body. I breathe deeply and allow the pain to leave my body, as time does not exist I am already healed.  I keep a sense of humour about the whole twisting the ankle thing and I laugh at myself. I am the master of my emotions. I focus on all the good in my life and my foot heals. Thank you for witnessing my healing journey. Thank you for your time. I Love You. ♥
Today I am grateful for help, yesterday after Robert Cerins and I hung seven colourful & whimsical paintings at Ingredients Health Food Store And Apple Cafe, we were carrying a ladder and I miss stepped and twisted my ankle. Right away I called Daniel Gilfix to ask him to repair me with BodyTalk and at 7:30pm, Daniel met with me right away and I totally felt my foot set itself in place when he shared his healing skills with my body. I am thankful for my belief that my body is capable of healing itself given rest, proper nutrition and healing energy. And I am grateful that twice I have given myself a pain relief technique called Fast Aid from BodyTalk and that has lessened the soreness and aids in the healing process. I am awed at my bodies ability to heal in its perfect time. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your healed and happy self with me. I Love You.  :~)
