You know the feeling, the sweats that come out of nowhere, the achy feeling, or unexplained tired that leaves you counting down til you clock out from work. But when that spot at the back of your throat pains, you are convinced. By the time you have tried to get through a couple more days of work and the weekend comes, you decide to take care, but it seems to get a little better. Ya, that's just that false sense of security while the evil has already sunk his talons into your immune system. Hold onto your hat for this ride. The so called Pre Cold just brought in the next shift….the big guns. What's a pre cold? I did not know, but apparently the next 24-48 hrs. will be worse than this first 10 hours (pre cold).
When you’re sick you just want to feel better in a hurry. There’s no cure for a cold or flu. All the remedies read...
Drink plenty of liquids to stay hydrated, and make sure they're hot.
Orange juice full of vitamin C, may help shorten a cold's duration.
Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen
A homeopathic nasal spray can actually help ease congestion and is clinically proven to shortenen colds when taken at the first sign.
I incorporated new things. I would do anything to feel better. This time I decided to experiment. I had nothing to loose and everything to gain. I had taken notes too. They say the best grimoire has all your notes of what worked and what didn't. So here I share my flu grimoire with you here.
The power of positive thought is foremost. Believe you will overcome and visualize it. It is done. Don't question anything or over analyze.. Allow the best to manifest, not worrying about how.
I found you can help kick a cold with crystals. Yes. A coworker was out for more than a week with this virus. I was only out two days, so it must have greatly helped. I started doing this at work to keep my strength up.
On my desk I layed out a grid using the following stones.
Carnelian boosts life force, strengthens immune, vitality, fortifies physical body
Aventrine heath an vitality enhancer
Clear Quartz to amplify all other stone's energies
Amethyst reinforces cleansing and eliminating organs as well as the immune system,
considered a natural tranquilizer, it relieves stress and nervous system
disorders, promoting tranquility, it helps combat insomnia and protects
against nightmares by inducing restful sleep. It balances our emotional highs
and lows eliminating anger, fear, anxiety
I also kept these stones on my nightstand or under my pillow.
This next part was something I found way before my cold. It was at a Pagan Pride raffle. I was the winner of a two pound bag of Himalayan Sea Salt. This was to be unlike any bath I had ever taken. It was also my foray into the magic of Solay. Truly amazing was that my aches simply dissolved into that water. I felt rested beyond any hot tub ever. My ankle swelling literally lessened to a noticeable difference when I left that tub! The fact that my skin felt wonderful and did not even need lotion or creme afterward was simply icing on the cake. To say these salts are amazing is to put it mildly.
For thousands of years, the Himalayan salt bath benefits have been greatly valued and very well documented. Early civilizations used salt to promote rejuvenation and rest, helping to calm their mood. Hippocrates, who lived between 460 BC and 370 BC, was the first person who discovered the therapeutic qualities of seawater and detox baths by noticing the healing affects it had on the injured hands of fisherman. The salty seawater not only restricted the risk of infection, but also provided pain relief. We now know that there is a link between salt therapy, the rejuvenation of cells and an exchange of minerals and toxins between the body and the salt.
This bath packs a hearty 80+ minerals and elements. Himalayan salts are mineral packed crystals which formed naturally within the earth made up of 85.62% sodium chloride and 14.38% other trace minerals including: sulphate, magnesium, calcium, potassium, bicarbonate, bromide, borate, strontium, and fluoride.
Because of these minerals Himalayan pink salt can:
•Create an electrolyte balance
•Regulate water content both inside and outside of cells
•Balance pH (alkaline/acidity) and help to reduce acid reflux
•Prevent muscle cramping
•Aid in proper metabolism functioning
•Lower blood pressure
•Help the intestines absorb nutrients
•Dissolve and eliminate sediment to remove toxins. It is even said to support libido, reduce the signs of aging, and detoxify the body from heavy metals.
I also learned the art and magic of Moon Bathing or Moon Phase Bathing.
During the Full moon, the minerals and energies in the salt can optimally be absorbed by the body. This is when the body’s healing potential is at its peak, bio-energetic weak points can be harmonized, and the body’s own energy flow can be activated. During a New moon, the cleansing effects are optimized because the body’s capacity for detoxifying is at its peak. A salt bath taken at this phase of the moon will have a detoxifying effect similar to a three-day fast.
This bath is like laying in a splendid Ocean. Why are we so drawn to the ocean? Because our subconscious mind instinctively wants to return to the specific vibrational state of the ocean from which we once emerged. This is where we can return to recharge our batteries and regenerate at the deepest level. It’s at the seashore where we receive and experience the full benefits of the salty environment. We can experience the cleansing of the lungs and bronchial system as we enjoy the natural salt inhalation therapy of exposure to the powerful, electrically charged, salty, ion rich atmosphere created by the breaking waves. Plus we can immerse our body entirely into the familiar, salty liquid warmth that so deeply satisfies our emotional and physical needs, remembering the safe, protective environment of our mother’s womb. It’s here where we’re nourished and made to feel content. It's also incredibly healing.
There, now you have the secrets to kicking a cold in the a** with Magic.
