It was a Tuesday morning and I awoke in a great mood. The kids were playing quietly and I enjoyed a hot cup of coffee before school started. Derek was gone to work so it was a normal day ahead of homeschool. Our son and I sat down and flew through his schoolwork! Yes! A successful morning! It could only get better from here…. or so I thought.
My Mom was home and my son wanted to go stay with her. I called her and she came to pick up her Grandson. Our daughter had online speech class in fifteen minutes. I went and changed out of my pajamas, washed up, brushed my teeth and combed my hair. I went into the kitchen and saw the computer monitor was on the kitchen table but needed to be turned around. Five minutes until the speech therapist would pop up on the screen. I leaned over the table and began turning the monitor around and all of a sudden, I felt and heard two pops in my back. I stood there for a moment registering what I had just heard and felt. I went to take a step back from my table and oh my gawd! I screamed. I couldn’t move! Those two pops were my back going out! Shit! Now what?!
I started screaming for help. Our five-year-old daughter came out of her room. I realised there was no one else at home. I couldn’t have her miss her speech appointment so I had her assist me. I had her move her chair in front of the computer monitor and put her stool up on it to so she could be seen on the screen. I somehow maneuvered her up on it and just then the computer read “The host will let you in shortly.” I somehow managed to sit down. The tears pouring down my face from the pain. As the speech therapist came up on the screen, I explained I had just pulled my back out and to bear with me.
We got through our half hour lesson and my Mom called to see if we wanted to go to Costco. I thought I have to keep moving and maybe my back with slide back in. So, I agreed. My Mom came and picked us up and I got into the vehicle. My Mom asked what had happened and I told her, explaining maybe walking it off would be just what I needed. That was a huge mistake.
As we walked through Costco my back got worse and felt as if it was going to crumble. I called Derek on my way home and told him we needed to go to the chiropractor as soon as he was off work. I made it to my appointment and was in excruciating pain. I could not stand, lay down or walk. But I had to force myself to walk so my back would not seize up.
I set my alarm for every hour that night and walked around the house. In the morning it took me over forty-five minutes to get out of my bed. Going to the washroom was another experience. Getting into and out of the bath tub for a hot Epsom salts bath was even worse. My Mom and Dad were amazing help as they took the kids and Derek helped me so much when he was home. It got to the point that I could not lay in our bed or get out of it so Derek hauled my Reiki table up to the living room and that is where I slept and spent my days in between walking. Now the energy in the house was not good as I was miserable and in so much pain. We also had not saged in a while. Joking I said to Derek, “Don’t let me sleep out here alone with the demons.” He looked straight at me and said, “What do you mean?” I explained I was joking but was feeling uneasy that night as I could sense something but did not have the energy or strength to sage.
Derek being the amazing husband that he is hauled out a blanket and a pillow and slept on the couch beside my Reiki table. It was another long night. I was in so much pain. I was exhausted. I just wanted to sleep. But this particular night the heating pad and baths were not cutting it. I still got up every hour to walk. I tried sitting at the kitchen table but could not sit. I had to go the washroom. I made my way down the hallway. Got to the toilette and screamed as I tried to sit down. Derek woke up and rushed in. He helped me sit down and get back up. This process took over a half hour. I was just so exhausted and my brain was not clear or functioning properly. We made our way to my table and Derek set down my heating pad and helped me onto it. He covered me up the tears streamed down my face. Was this how it was going to be for me for the rest of my life?
I wanted to lay on my side. Derek was still awake so I asked if he could go to our son’s room and grab the body pillow for me to try while I was on my side. Derek got up and went to our son’s room (our son was spending the night at my Mom’s house). While Derek was in there I heard talking. All of a sudden, I heard a male voice clear as day in a loud whisper say, “Do you wanna play?” I froze and yelled out to Derek, “What was that?!” Derek loudly and in a unsteady voice said, “You heard that too?” I explained it was clear as day. Derek walked out to me body pillow in hand and said, “I was in his room, and the voice was right behind me in my ear.”
Guess what we were doing at 3:30 am? Saging our house…. Derek immediately got the sage and hit the whole house. Amazing as soon as it was done and we both laid back down I fell asleep instantly. I slept right through until my alarm went off an hour later. I got up and walked around the dark house in complete sense of comfort. Whatever had wanted to play was now gone.
It is amazing when negative energy and vibes are around what can sneak in. This is why we choose to stay in a positive vibration.
