Life without a Uterus

Many of us have lost various parts due to disease, injury, or less-than-healthy conditions. It’s a sad fact that we humans spend years ruining our bodies. No matter how healthy our behaviors or how much we run each week (not me, mind you), stuff still breaks or dies or changes. We accept this gradual (and sometimes immediate) decay as a condition of life and regardless of where you fall in the spectrum of beliefs, your body will eventually fail. It really sucks, but this is the gig of being human.

In the last year or so, I’ve conversed with several women who lost their girl parts and in fall 2012, I, myself had life-threatening challenges with menopausal bleeding, a huge blood clot in my right leg, and multiple lung embolisms in both lungs. While I didn’t lose my darling uterus (her name is Uti, by the way), because I fought hard to keep her, I did end up having emergency gall bladder surgery. My gall bladder was named Gill, as in “Gill Bladder”. And, I miss him so much. Honestly, I’m still processing everything that happened during that time. But, that’s a story for another post. 🙂

This post is in response to a recent conversation I had with a sister-blogger, Joanne from Food Gurly. (Side note: Be sure to check her out; she’s got a mad-awesome blog that makes my stummy growl every time I go over there). Anyway, Joanne was telling me about some of her health challenges from 2007. I mentioned to her that I know of a great way to help with the loss of a body part (or any bodily condition that’s not to one’s liking) and I promised to share it.atom

So, how can we better cope with the loss of an organ or body part (or deal with sickness)? Two words: energy medicine. What is energy medicine? Chiefly, it is a variety of methods that work with the body’s energy anatomy or the etheric body to release blockages, create greater flow of Chi through the body’s meridians, and improve conditions or in lots of cases, outright heal diseases.

Evidence suggests that when we get to the point where we have lost an organ, it is due to chronic blockage in energy flow in one or more areas of the body. Blockages often result from habitual low-frequency or damaging thoughts and beliefs, less-than-ideal diet, lack of exercise, dehydration, stress, and so on. All bad stuff. And, it happens to the best of us.

Energy medicine encompasses a wide variety of ancient modalities from different cultures; most of it greatly predates Christianity and Western medicine and has been used successfully for countless numbers of people over thousands of years. Energy medicine, also known as “Eastern medicine”, is the umbrella term for working with: chakras, energy meridians, acupuncture, reflexology, Ayurveda, Shiatsu, distant and hands-on healing, Reiki, sacred geometry, color and sound healing, magnetism, homeopathy, intentional healing, and more.

Our bodies are electromagnetic or energy. Everything in the universe is made up of energy or vibrating particles. Every bit of matter, including our bodies, is an active soup of swirling energy that expresses itself as patterns, information, sound, thought, etc., but none of it is actually solid. Everything is comprised of subatomic particles that move and interact and change constantly and which make up the seemingly solid planet and all of its “stuff”.

Energy medicine works on the level of the subtle body, or the energy body to clear blockages. It is a holistic approach, in that it treats the entire physical organism, not just parts of a physical system and it really works to clear the pathways that are vital to greater health and well-being.

I’m in no way qualified to advise you on actual exercises for activating or working with the subtle bodies, but I can give you pointers to some awesome resources and a first-hand account of how it’s worked for me. I’ve been taking a class for a few weeks now on the meridians and WOW! What an incredible experience this has been. Seriously, with some very easy and fast exercises, many of which don’t even involve touching the skin, I’ve had huge shifts in my energy stream. I can feel the changes. I can feel my energy flowing through my body in an even greater capacity and I feel so much more vibrant and alive. While doing the exercises, I get radiating chills up and down my body. I can feel heat building in certain spots and a truly succulent flush of energy through me the entire time; it’s wonderful. And, all with just the use of my two hands, help from some cool chicks in class, and a loving, wonderful body-worker/instructor/healer, Teri Starr.

I encourage you all to explore this further and see how it works for you. Following are excellent resources on energy medicine. FYI- I actually own all of the books and resources listed here and have read them/used them, so I can vouch for their “goodness”. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing that, Lizzy! And I’m sad to hear about some of the health issues you’ve been struggling with – sounds like you’re on the road to vibrant health and recovery. I love acupuncture & hot yoga to help improve what thrills me and help alleviate what ails me.

      Rutabaga-baby! Thanks for stopping by, darlin’. my health stuff happened 2.5 years ago. Can you believe that I’m still processing what happened? Man, it takes me forever to get clear sometimes. I keep myself waaaaay too busy. 🙂 I also love acupuncture and yoga but have yet to do hot yoga. I’m not ready for it. LOVE that you enjoy the benefits of these disciplines. And, I love you, sis.

    Thanks so much sista!! *smooches* This makes so much sense. Went to the kidney specialist recently and he says it’s possible I might have lupus. I don’t know much about this and I am still waiting for more tests to be scheduled… I wish this ol’ body of mine would just behave itself!

      This is a very challenging time for you, sweetheart and I’m sending huge piles of loving vibes over to you.

      Please, if it feel comfortable for you to do, ask Archangel Raphael to come to your aid. He will show up instantly and help you with your physical challenges. Ask him to gently show you what the source of this energy blockage is and you will get the answers. Your body can heal this or any condition and you have but to ask for support from the loving universe and it’s there; it’s yours; it’s your birthright. It belongs to all of us.

      I also heartily encourage you to look into eastern medicine because every physical manifestation is based in thought and emotion. You can do this.

      I’m loving you from all the way over here, but honey, it matters not how far apart we are; this is the beauty of quantum physics. I’m there beside you in an instant. My love and support is unending and you can have it all until you are healed.

      Kisses and sweet hugs to you, sister.

        I am literally in tears. That was so sweet, Lizzy. Thank you so very much. I think I have just been entrusting the health of my body to others for far too long. I think it’s just time for me to look inward and upward for the healing my body truly needs. Thank you so much for your love, support and positive energy. I can literally feel it as if you were right here next to me. How rad is that?!? I think you might just be a miracle worker my dearest Lizzy!! Much love, hugs and smooches to you!! xoxo

        You are a total LOVE, honey. I mean it. YOU are the miracle-worker. I merely remind you, gently, of everything that you and your lovely body already know. You know this stuff. I offer my ideas and energy to you with my deepest love and gratitude to you and your body, because by reminding you, I am reminding me. It is healing for me, too. So, I thank you deeply for this opportunity, sister. 🙂

        It makes perfect sense that you would entrust your health to others, sweetie. How else can you learn that you might want something different but by going through the process of trying things and seeing that they are no longer a fit for you. You have done everything right. You cannot fail at life no matter how off track you might get at times. Everything rights itself eventually. Further, there is nothing to prove or live up to or achieve. You are PERFECT. Right now.

        So, it is my greatest hope that you really hear and feel this: Every decision you have made up to this point was the right one, darling. You can only get clear by being unclear. Does that make sense? You can only get here by going through there. All that you have done has added to your soul and caused expansion in your soul. It’s all perfect, honey. All of that led you to this new place of clarity and autonomy, so it’s all in perfect order and in perfect timing.

        All this means is that now, you are ready to take a more active role in welcoming deeper health and well-being; and, your body is your greatest friend, your very greatest ally in this process. She will tell you what works and what doesn’t quite feel right for you. She will help you help her. Listen to her. Whisper to her and soothe her as often as you can like you would for a small child.

        I know the grandeur of your heart and your truth, sis. I can see it and feel it from you. I know that you are whole. You are free. You are immensely sane and wise and wonderful. I’ll tell you this everyday if need be. It’s the truth.

        So, be bigger and greater and more healthy. It’s yours for the taking, honey. You can trust this process. Many warm hugs are coming your way, my lovely friend. :)XOXO

        I totally understand. I am ready. To be free from pain and be whole. I am ready to trust my body and soul to tell me what it needs. Thank you so much for your support and love, it means the world to me!! I think I have just been waiting for someone to ‘be there’, to listen and to understand. And also to encourage me to move forward… you are that someone. You are a godsend. I’ll be in touch. xoxo

        Ahhhhh…how delicious is this? TOTALLY! I’m so excited for you, honey. If there is anything that I can do to help, you’ve but to say the word. I love you, friend! XOXO

    1. BigLizzy Post author

      Hahahahahahahahahahaha! I KNEW there was a reason why I love you so much. You seriously crack me up, Dan. What an integrated man you are ! And, for the record, I LOVE your uterus; she’s a beaut! 😉

      1. BigLizzy Post author

        hahahahahahaha! You are the first person to ever tell me this and it makes me love you even more! HA! All I can say is that I must have some big ones. Laughing so, so, sooooo hard right now, dude. 🙂

  3. LB

    For such a heavy discussion, the comments cracked me up (at least the ones between you and Dan). You had Pulmonary Embolus and DVTs and are alive and well to tell about it, So glad! How very frightening!! So glad you are in a much healthier place!

    1. BigLizzy Post author

      Hi, my sweet LB (Biker Babe Sister)!

      Thank you for coming over and giving a read. According to the doctors, I had “lots of pulmonary embolisms” in each lung. The clot in my right leg, thanks to a mere two weeks on birth control pills to stop my bleeding, occluded the entire vein in my right leg from my pelvis to my my mid-calf. Ouch!

      Yeah, I go big with everything! But, I was never close to death. I knew that my mission was not done on earth and had no real concern. It was slightly stressful at times, but I knew in my soul that I was not done and not going anywhere.

      Thank you so much for the warm wishes and comments, my darling-biker-sister. XOXO

    I’m so very excited for you that you’re taking a class, and that it’s awesome!! Glad your big health scares are behind you. Doesn’t energy medicine rock? I love it and along with doing my hypnosis, I’m also working with an awesome medical intuitive. Moving a lot of stuff out.

    1. BigLizzy Post author

      Hi, Susan-Honey-Bunny!! Thank you so much for stopping by with your sweet self and comments, my darling friend.

      Yes, energy medicine is the major bomb-age! I love it so much! Good for you on moving some stuff out. Oh, Gawd. You just gave me chills, honey. I love it.

      And, a HUGE THANK YOU for the CD; it arrived a few days ago. I’ve been really buried lately so I’ve yet to use it, but I WILL and cannot wait.

      Thank you, thank you, thank you, sis. I adore you, your energy, and your abundant LIGHT! Muwahhh!
