A few months ago, I started waking each morning with my jaw stuck on one side. It would loosen with time, and I didn’t concern myself with it until the morning it stayed stuck and hurt. I didn’t worry until the next day when it was still stuck and I could barely open my mouth to eat.
I immediately asked Spirit if I should worry about this painful situation, and Spirit assured me that my body could naturally heal itself. I was instructed to stop sleeping on the side that hurt. That’s it! No other treatment—no vitamins to take, no creams to use, and no doctors or dentists to visit.
The healing took five weeks! The first two weeks, I had to eat food cut into tiny pieces and no sandwiches. The third week, my jaw loosened a bit, and by the fourth week, I could tell it was almost healed. Several times I worried and questioned whether to go to a dentist, but each time Spirit assured me that my body would do the healing work.
Here’s what I learned:
- The body is truly a marvelous creation, caring for and healing itself.
- My upbringing to seek outside help at the moment pain is felt has its power over me to doubt my body’s own power to heal.
- People don’t pay much attention to others. That whole time my jaw was stuck, I didn’t mention it to anyone and no one noticed that I was eating differently and using my mouth differently. We worry what people think of us way too much!
- Patience is the key to natural healing.
I am fortunate to have this direct connection with Spirit to guide me (my sister calls it cheating 🙂 ) and I know that others feel less confident to rely on natural healing.
My previous post “Standing up for the body” reminds us of the importance of caring for our bodies so that we can hear the messages and know what to do. Had I been paying attention that my jaw hurt on that one side each morning, I could have worked out that my sleeping position was causing the problem.
I can write more about natural healing if my readers let me know they are interested.
Note: My connection is to Spirit who guides me to help myself and others.
