We are humans and not machines.
Many of you don’t know this about me, but I actually suffer from a chronic condition that often leaves me feeling exhausted. I have what is called Nocturia, which is incredibly unsexy and largely untreatable. Basically, it means that I wake up anywhere between 2-10 times to visit the loo during the night.
In other words, I never get a good night’s sleep. As we know, sleep is instrumental for good wellbeing. I’m not sharing this to get sympathy points or anything of that sort. I’m sharing it because we never know what someone is going through. So let us do our best not to judge a book by its cover. I also think there is a misconception that people who work in the spiritual space cannot have a chronic condition; we have to be pure and perfect. As we know, that does not exist, nor are we meant to be. That is a fallacy.
It is true that, for now, my spiritual energy healing practice has been unable to treat this condition. Neither is seemingly Western medicine for now.
However, I sense that my practices help my mind and spirit accept that this is a part of my journey. There is no other alternative than to manage it as best as I can and also bring a bit of humanity into the somewhat purist spiritual space.
Also, we have to understand that spiritual practices have limitations. In the same way that more culturally accepted medical practices have limitations. If we could only survive on spiritual energy, we would not have to eat, which we all know we must.
The irony is that I look exceedingly well after my wellbeing. I suspect that if I did not, my health would be ten times worse than it is now. I believe that what is helping me is an upbeat mindset, which means I will not allow this condition to ruin my life.
I have tried tons of different medications and alternative routes. Nothing seems to be working, so the work to manage it and hopefully sometime soon treat it is ongoing. Moving forward, I’m planning to try out some new routes.
What causes this for me?
You may wonder what the root cause of this condition is. There are probably several causes; perhaps this is even a symptom of something else. One ingredient that has led me to this condition is childhood trauma, which has led to some hypervigilance. After tons of healing, I still hold a bit of emotional tension in my hips and pelvic floor.
Healing takes time and patience.
In addition, there is something physiologically wrong with my bladder. I also struggle with IBS and inflammation, which I now have mainly under control of my diet.
I have also been told that many mediums struggle with this as we absorb more spiritual energy than most, which also increases the need to go to the loo. The excess energy has to go somewhere.
So there is a combination of stuff going on.
My condition is hidden unless you are intuitive and can read my aura. On the surface, I look healthy, and my mindset is healthy. However, my body is still going through something. And I want to emphasise that this does not make me less of a practitioner. All it means is that it makes me human and not a machine. Again, I feel like this is something which is often forgotten.
We are humans and not machines.
We are imperfect, precisely as we are meant to be, as all of our spiritual lessons will be varied for the progression of our spirit. We are meant to go through all kinds of different lessons, and all we can do is do the best we can with the cards we have been given.
The key is to trust and know that we have the inner spiritual strength to deal with whatever life serves us, regardless of if it is “good” or “bad”, as we see it.
The key message here is to embrace life's messiness and create calm where we can. My body, mind and spirit are at their best when I live at my pace and let go of many unhealthy, socially conditioned lifestyle choices modern humans make.
What are you hiding from the world which could be worth sharing?
