I like to listen to Hay House Radio to get inspiration and ideas for improving health and healing. Recently I was listening to a lecture by Dr. Darren Weissman, he teaches the lifeline technique and repeats the healing phrase "infinite love and gratitude". On a recent show a caller called in saying she had applied his technique by repeating "infinite love and gratitude" to a mole on her face while looking in the mirror each morning, until one day the mole fell off and the skin beneath it had healed. I found this to be an interesting concept of loving the parts of ourselves we do not like or wish would go away. I also decided to try it out myself.
I decided to start with my uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids are masses of smooth muscle tissue in the uterus. It is normal to have small fibroids, 1-2 cm in diameter, but anything larger is considered abnormal. Mine are about the size of grapefruits, definitely abnormal. (But not as bad as they could be, some get as large as a full-term baby!) These growths feel like rocks. Most are hidden in the uterus, but some protrude like an alien is growing inside you. They can cause pain, bleeding, sexual problems, and can cause problems for neighboring internal organs like the urinary and digestive system. The standard treatment is surgery to remove the fibroids or uterus. Medically fibroids are believed to grow from an excessive of estrogen in the blood system. Psychologically/Energetically fibroids are believed to come from regrets of not giving birth to children or regrets of not giving birth to dreams, projects, or ideas.
I haven't been to keen on surgery so for the past three years I have been trying non-surgical methods of reducing my fibroids. Biochemically following an estrogen free diet of all organic and no red meats, dairy, or pesticide laden foods. I also have done visualization exercises imagining the fibroids shrinking, and imagining a healing white light blasting them apart like asteroids while the body naturally flushes the remaining particles out. And of course affirmations of "I love my body", "My body knows how to heal itself", and "I release the pattern in me that attracted this experience. I create only good in my life." Haven't noticed much change in the fibroids yet.
So today I decided to try the affirmation "infinite love and gratitude". I placed my hand on one of the protruding fibroids and lovingly thanked it for the messages it was trying to tell me and letting it know it was time for it to go. I then repeated "infinite love and gratitude" several times. While I didn't notice any shrinking in my pelvis rock I did notice that I felt a whole lot better sending messages of love to my body rather than the typical frustration and anger. I felt happier and calmer. Like taking a warm bath of love. I could feel a warm flow of loving energy now encompassing all of my body.
Today is day one of my "infinite love and gratitude" experiment. I'll keep up with my diet, visualizations, and affirmations. But hopefully with this added tool of love energy I can convince these masses that it's time to leave my uterus home.
