At the beginning of July, on a beautiful hot summer’s day, I slipped down a grassy bank I was walking down. My foot went out from under me, I went up in the air and I put my hand out automatically to break my fall. A shock went up my arm and when I looked at it, I thought I had stepped into a nightmare! My arm was in the most unnatural position and was tingling in a way I had never experienced before. It felt 5 times bigger than my physical body. I curled up into a little ball at the bottom of the bank and felt a sickening dread in the pit of my stomach. In A&E I couldn’t bear to look at the X-ray the hospital took. I was terrified of the consequences and also in a state of deep shock; both physical and mental. I had the presence of mind to do Life Retuning to treat my trauma and fear in my friend’s car as she rushed me to the hospital. This meant that my breathing was normal at least. Just as well as I had to wait to be seen for further emergency treatment. When I was called in, the doctor told me that I had not only compressed the bones but also broken my wrist under high impact. I had to be given a local anaesthetic and gas and air as two doctors literally pulled out my bones from the compression and set them back. I was told I had a clean break and that I would have to go to a different hospital’s Fracture Unit, as I needed to have a cast fitted.
However, when I went for my next appointment, I was told that I did not have a clean break and would need much more than a cast, I actually had a compound fracture that would need surgery. I would have to have manipulation and metal inserted into my bones to make sure they set back properly.
I cannot begin to explain the horror that swept over me in that doctor’s consultation room. Since being a young child, I have always had a deep terror of having metal in my body. In my bones and flesh. As a child, I saw a man who had a metal contraption on his leg which was inserted into his bones and I was stricken with an intense shock. I had also up until now, only had one operation when I was 2 years old. I have to admit that after leaving the hospital, having booked my surgery for 5 days time, I dissolved into a complete mess of terror, horror, despair and hopelessness. I had no idea how I was ever going to actually go through with it.
And now began a deep, powerful and transformative journey for me where I would call back pieces of myself that had been alienated for years. As my bones had shattered, so did my perception of myself. This summer I entered a cocoon; a mirror of the cast covering my arm, I broke down into my constituent substance, echoing the fragments of my wrist that were floating in shattered limbo. The focus becoming smaller and smaller, the centre of the vortex dissolving, annihilating, restructuring and finally rebuilding. Just like a caterpillar which dies to itself and restructures into a glorious new creature, a butterfly. It is one of the greatest mysteries and highest magical transformations of this world. This is the story of my journey and the vital knowing that has come from out of it. I want to share with you the discoveries I made about healing, when the very foundation of our bodies is broken.
As a highly advanced Adept and Facilitator of Universal energy, I was being called on to walk my talk with myself. As the Founder of Life Retuning, having worked around the globe, to release over 1000 clients from their fears, anxieties and challenges, I was now faced with a deep, long term set of fears about surgery and the reality of having metal in my body and I had 5 days to turn it around so that I could go through with the operation. There was no backing out, nowhere to run, no excuses to make, just the real, raw inevitability of it. I am no wuss, I have a lot of courage but this felt like a mountain that was way too far to climb.
I spent those 5 days in a recurring cycle of dread, release and exhaustion. Every time a new aspect of my fears came up, I applied my Retuning method, felt peace and calm flood my body and mind and then a tremendous exhaustion would overwhelm me as my system let go of low vibrational frequencies that I had been carrying for years. Then the cycle would begin again as my mind found another aspect of my fears to throw up and engulf me. By the end of the 4th day I felt so exhausted with the ceaseless intensity, I couldn’t move and I had nothing left in me to deal with any more. I felt a total numbness about everything, but I was aware of my huge achievement. Then a message came to me from Universal energy, making me aware that I would be kept in a trance state throughout the whole time I was in hospital. That is exactly what happened. I was hardly aware of anything consciously, from the early morning when I went in, until I woke up from the general anaesthetic much later, in the hospital bed afterwards.
Wires in the Bone
When I was initially told by the surgeon that I had a compound fracture of the wrist, he told me I could let it heal naturally and risk it being deformed for the rest of my life, or that I could have metal screws and a plate inserted to strengthen it. Beyond the intrinsic fear I have already described, my intuition was telling me that permanent metal in my body was a definite ‘no’. So I asked if there was any other option and he told me that I could have temporary wires inserted into my bones which would guide them to knit together in the right place. This is the option I chose. I am very glad that I asked the question because otherwise it would not have been offered. Over the next few weeks I met many people who had broken bones and had permanent metal in their bodies. Almost every single one of them told me that they had pain every since.
The Purrfect Remedy
So what can you do with broken bones to help them heal? I had no idea apart from one bit of information that I had read about when I was researching content for one of my Life Retuning courses. I found out that a cat’s purring heals bones. Every species of cat purrs in a frequency range of 25-140 Hz from your little moggy right up to lions and tigers. This is the perfect vibration range to stimulate bones to knit back together. Cats heal themselves with this extraordinary ability and the knock on effect is that if you are injured it works for you too. When I got back home from A&E, my cat Tivvy took one look at me, came and sat by my side and hardly left me alone for the next few weeks. Sure enough, she purred almost continuously.
Many Meetings of Inaction
Having a cast, seems to be a great icebreaker. Because with a broken wrist I couldn’t drive, I found myself sitting at lots of bus stops waiting for the ride and someone always started talking to me. Sometimes, when I was walking, people would actually even cross the road to speak to me! I also found that nearly every time someone would start talking to me they inevitably asked what I had done in order to be wearing a cast. It would turn out that often they were dying to tell me their horror story of their own broken bone disaster. I became curious as to what those people had done to help themselves heal and was astonished to find that the answer was usually, nothing at all! The hospital had given me no advice, except to keep my arm elevated and take pain killers after the surgery. But this is just the start of what you can do to give yourself the maximum chance to heal your bones well, with strength and flexibility.
A Vital Gesture
When I broke my wrist, I was wearing high heel sandals and should never have walked down such a sleep slope in them. I felt stupid and irresponsible. However, I know that the vibrations of anger, regret and embarrassment are powerful blockers of healing. We are not just a single entity, we are made up of cells, organs, parts. Each part of us has its own separate consciousness. I remember a client who had dropped an iron on her foot and for years it would not heal until I Retuned the anger her foot felt. She had not said sorry to it for what she had put it through. It may sound far-fetched but if you do not clear your upsetting feelings about an injury, it will take longer to heal or even may not heal at all. So one of the first things I did was to ask forgiveness of my wrist for having put it through the pain and suffering it had experienced. I cleared all negativity, trauma, shock and self-punishing emotions. I use Power Statements with clients to reinforce and create the right vibration in their energy fields for the changes they want to achieve. Two of the important Power Statements I used for myself were:
I forgive myself for allowing this injury
I release all injury trauma, shock and negative emotions from my system, including frustration, embarrassment, stupidity and regret
The Tone of Bone
As an Adept of Universal energy, I know that everything has a vibrational frequency. Our thoughts, emotions and physical matter…our bodies. I already knew that my cat was a highly evolved natural energy worker. I found it quite ironic that humans were doing nothing about healing their bones and yet a cat, considered by some as a mere animal, was automatically and instinctively giving me exactly the healing I needed. I am sure that if I could have explained to her, she would think humans are completely crazy and probably dumb to not be using a natural resource! I have used specific vibrational frequencies with my clients to accelerate the assimilation of my energy work. I decided it was time to use the same technique on myself. I read from my own energy field exactly what tonal frequency my wrist needed in order to heal. This was a truly fascinating process, as the pattern of tones unfolded. Starting with exactly the range of Hertz that a cat’s purr vibrates in. I did not assume anything, just followed the energetic data. The pattern that emerged gave me an eyeopening window into how the body heals from inside out. The tones were revealed in Hertz; precise notes used for a precise period of minutes. Every time I gave my wrist a specific vibration, my system indicated a rest period before I could use the next tone. The graph above shows the progression of the Hertz of the tones I needed. As you can see, the tones rose each time. From the densest matter which in our bodies is the bone, up through tissue, ligaments, muscles, blood vessels, skin. Each part of us has a specific vibration and my energy field was responding to exactly the healing sound that I needed at each stage. To me this is simply miraculous. To have lived it and used it has given me a deep insight into the very workings of life and the Universe. As the microcosm reflects the macrocosm, this process must be echoed throughout our cosmos.
On Another Note
There is a very ancient instrument that is known for helping to heal bones. It is the Yidaki or Didgeridoo. it is said that the Aborigines have been using it for healing for over 40,000 years and it may well be the oldest recorded instrument of humankind. I had a healing session with a musician friend of mine who has two of them. By this time, I had the wires in my bones and it was a very weird experience. As my friend started playing his Didgeridoo, I feel energy coursing up my arm and I was aware of a subtle sensation. It was a weak humming vibration and suddenly I knew where those wires must be. There was a sympathetic resonance occurring between the sound and the metal. It wasn’t unpleasant, just fascinating. I experienced the power of this ancient instrument and felt the wisdom that had been passed down for eons of generations in a far off land. Never ever underestimate how sound causes the most profound changes in every part of your environment, both internal and external. Nikola Tesla famously said…
’if you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration’
Feeling the Heat
I mentioned that when the surgeon suggested the I should have permanent metal screws and a metal plate inserted into my wrist that my intuition kicked up with a firm ‘no’. I want to tell you about the wisdom of the body and how it asserted itself in a powerful and alarming way. A week after the wires went into my bones, my body started to heat up several times a day and in the night. Now I know what you are thinking, yes, yes, you are a woman, obviously the signs of menopause starting. However, I found that there was something entirely different going on. My energy field revealed that it was the 3 stress hormones that were firing off regularly and added to that, my ‘feel good’ hormones were joining the party! No sex hormones were involved at all. So these were the hormones that were going out of balance every time I experienced the heat:
Without fail, when I checked, they would all be balanced and secreting fine and then go haywire whenever the symptoms occurred. I became curious about what could be going on. When I energetically investigated deeper, I discovered that the stress hormones were getting into gear to deal with a foreign invader…namely the wires! My body was following the only processes it knows to get rid of bacteria, virus’, thorns…push it out or heat up and kill it! Only it didn’t know what to do with fixed metal.
I had this for a whole month until the wires were removed and within a few days I noticed a change in the frequency of the heating up. 6 weeks on and I have hardly any reaction from my body now. It makes me wonder what happens when metal is permanently fixed in our bodies, what deeper implications there are, past the necessity of finding a surgical solution.
Just one week after my cast was removed, I was able to start driving and 3 weeks after it, my wrist is already almost back to full flexibility and function. This is not matching the stories I heard from all those people at the bus stops and on the street. I was told about months and even years of pain, lack of strength, flexibility and movement.
My journey of bone has been a deeply transformative experience. I now know how strong and incredible my body is and I have learned to trust its wisdom. I have also moved a level up in my understanding of how energy plays a part in our lives, from the densest part of us through to the most intangible realms. So even though I would not wish to repeat this summer, I am truly grateful for all that I have learned through this injury and I hope that my learning will be helpful to others.
