Joanne, a grandmother, constantly felt tired, with a continual pain under her left rib. She had been to doctors and specialists and they couldn’t find anything wrong with her. She felt that the problem may have been related to her digestive system and she heard I might have been able to help her.
After examining her abdominal area I couldn’t feel anything out of the ordinary, but her discomfort was in the area of her pancreas. We talked about her digestion, with no clues uncovered about any problems with the pancreas. I told her that problems with the pancreas can relate to ‘life not being so sweet’ and questioned her about this. She told me how she had a sudden break-up from her partner 12 months previously and the fatigue started at that point. Then the pain started later after she ‘got over him’.
We searched for further clues by looking at her blood and discovered she had a fungal infection. I discussed how fungus likes to grow in a body that is festering very old emotional wounds. With a sigh she told me about how she wasn’t loved or wanted as a child. I asked her how she knew this to be true and she told me how he mother told her that she never wanted her, but her mother’s religion didn’t allow abortions. She had the child (and other children) but resented all of them for destroying her life and her freedom.
We talked about how Joannes’s challenge was self-love, because her parents couldn’t love her. Joanne had 3 children of her own and several grandchildren. She had dedicated her life to loving them, but gave little regard to herself as she felt unimportant.
She realised she was now ready for some self-love and that this was the real reason she had come in for help. She was there to help herself, not anyone else, so the first major breakthrough had occurred. Even after just talking about this, she felt the pain under her rib decreasing. That was her clue that she was on track. Joanne devoured the exercises in self-love that I gave her and within a few weeks she was absolutely glowing with energy and vitality for herself and her family.
