Week 5 – Artist Date & Synchronicity

I’m really loving my artist dates this time around!  And it seems like all of a sudden I’m having a lot of synchronicity in my life.  Synchronicity- that principle that C.G. Jung loosely defined as a fortuitous intermeshing of events.  I still like the word serendipity better but it doesn’t matter.  They both mean the same thing.  Wikipedia says synchronicity is the experience of two or more events, that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance, that are observed to occur together in a meaningful manner.  When something coincidental happens that causes something else to happen. 

All the synchronicity that happened to me this week is complicated and hard to explain.  But let’s start with the fact that I left a Scentsy catalog with someone who placed an order with me at the medical center back in August.  After that, someone I had never met called me and placed an order with me in the middle of September.  Then I went in for a doctor appt and this really nice young airman did my intake to my appointment.  She never expressed an interest in Scentsy and I didn’t bring it up although I carry my Scentsy bag with me everywhere and it’s unusual for me NOT to bring it up.  When the order came in and I went to deliver it to the medical clinic, it turned out it was the nice young airman who had ordered from me sight unseen.  When she saw me she said, “OH, I’m so glad it is you!  I’m so glad it is you!  I saw your Scentsy bag when you came in for your appointment and I just kept thinking too bad I already ordered from someone because you were so nice and I would’ve rather have ordered from you!”  Since I had never met her when she placed the order with me and then met her after the order was placed but before it came it and we liked each other I am going to say it is synchronicity that we met each other by phone before we met each other in person and did not even know it.  Other people may not count that as synchronicity, I don’t know.

The next episode of synchronicity is really complicated.  Let me set the stage here.  Domino #1 – Back in the late 90s I made a trip to Houston with a friend.  I had some female issues going on and the friend’s sister wanted me to see a Holistic doctor friend of hers.  This doctor explained to me about the electrical meridians in our bodies and how he could tell if something was wrong with me by testing these meridians.  I was quite skeptical but I believe in reflexology so I was willing to give it a shot.  He tested me by handing me a metal cylinder to hold in one hand and something I held in the other hand (don’t remember now) and having me stand on this metal plate.  Small doses of electricity traveled through my body and supposedly told this doctor what was wrong with me.  He gave me some homeopathic hormone drops and some yam cream to use.  I thought it was the biggest waste of money I’d ever done!  I went home and proceeded to use the drops and the cream as he had instructed me.  I NEVER FELT BETTER IN MY LIFE!!!  When I ran out of the drops I was quite upset that my friend had been fired from her job and dropped off the radar of my life.  I didn’t know her sister’s name and I didn’t know the doctor’s name.  I attempted to find a Holistic doctor in the Houston area and I couldn’t find him.  I tried to find one here and I couldn’t.  I eventually gave up and life went back to how it had been pre-Houston visit.

Domino #2 – Fast forward to 2010.  I have fibromyalgia, and other various health issues.  I don’t react to prescriptions like other people do and even the military insurance company told me I needed a Homeopathic doctor that believed in natural remedies instead of one that wanted to throw pills at me.  We looked for a Homeopathic doctor within 200 miles of where I live.  We couldn’t find one.  The only one listed had given up his practice here and gone to Florida to treat Geriatric patients.  We hit dead end after dead end.  I again gave up and life went on.

Domino #3 – In early 2011 my husband picked up the book “The Field – The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe” by Lynne McTaggart out of a bargain bin somewhere.  This is a very scientific book and NOT at all something I would normally read.  But after hearing my husband talk about bits and pieces of it I picked it up and started reading it before bedtime.  This book deals with the Zero Point Gravity Field and delves into Quantum Physics and other scientific areas I’ve never really had an interest in.  But at the same time if this book is to be believed than scientists have been performing experiments that prove the reality of a realm that hitherto had been the domain of Eastern mystics.  A book which gives scientific proof of the paranormal.  (Which I’ve always had an interest and ability in.)  Psychic activity, remote viewing, the power of prayer and homoeopathy are all discussed.  The energy found in the vacuum – or the zero point field – seems to be the key to all sorts of unexplained phenomena: ESP or remote viewing, homeopathy, energy medicine, spiritual healing, and even the homing instincts of animals.  Lynne McTaggart follows the life and work of disparate physicists, pioneers in the area where the paranormal meets quantum physics.  Even Dr. Wayne Dyer said, “The Field is one of the most thought-provoking reads of 2001!” 

Domino #4 – As most people who know me know, I am very supportive of my children and have never missed any of my daughter’s roller derby matches.  It just so happens that one of her team mates (and her husband!) are chiropractors here locally.  They have become very good friends with my daughter and my extension friends with me.

Domino #5 – I restarted The Artist Way study and have been using my artist dates to indulge myself in ways to help me destress and take better care of myself in addition to letting my artist child play so I made an appointment with this chiropractor to see if my back being out of alignment was causing the bursitis in both hips that the regular medical doctor wants to give me steroid shots to fix but can’t explain to me why I got it in the first place.

Domino #6 – While at the chiropractic appointment (which helped the bursitis TONS by the way) somehow holistic healing came up and I mentioned the machine I had been treated with in Houston all those years ago and how I’d never been able to find anyone with such a machine again.  How or why it even came up I can’t remember now!

Domino #7 – The chiropractor tells me that they have that machine THERE in their office!  The other doctor (not her husband) owns it and mainly uses it to treat friends and family.

Domino #8 – As I’m checking out, and my chiropractic friend is checking on getting me an appointment with the other doctor, one of the ladies from the office tells me that she doesn’t understand why the doctor charges so little; that most people who own that expensive equipment charge well over $1000 for a session (a session takes over an hour). But this doctor’s session is actually quite cheap and I can afford it!  [Pulled from the web.]  Biomeridian testing measures electrical resistance at established acupuncture points along those meridians to determine if they are balanced, stressed, or weak.  Even before symptoms show themselves, this helps to identify where the body is most in need of support.  Healthy tissue in the body has a certain rate of conductivity.  Stressed tissue has more conductivity and weakened tissue has less conductivity.  [No, that is not us in the picture, I got that off the web too.]   🙂

Soooo…..  with all the coincidences allowing it to happen, I make my appointment for the following day to come back and have a reading by the doctor with the Biomeridian machine.  I don’t think it’s the exact same machine as was used on me in Houston but it is close.  As the doctor checks the various electrical meridians in my body he explains as fascinated as he is by the science of it that he just can’t get most people to understand that it is not quack medicine.  I am refreshing to him that I have benefitted from such a machine in the past and because of my study of reflexology and various other alternative health disciplines I understand what the machine is doing.  I’m even more enthralled when he finishes and the machine gives its report.  Without going into my specific medical information let me say that what the machine said is the #1 thing wrong with me is something that my medical doctors have also said is wrong.  In fact I have another test scheduled for Tuesday afternoon to recheck that same issue!  But medical doctors are saying there is nothing that can be done for it.  The #2 thing the machine says is wrong with me is another thing that has been addressed by medical doctors but after throwing pills at me they think I am better.  The #3 thing the machine says is wrong with me is something I have brought up to doctors and they have dismissed out of hand.  Very interesting!

Because of my reading of “The Field” I understand about different substances having a specific frequency and water molecules retaining memory even if the solution is diluted infinitely.  So when the doctor puts a base solution on a metal plate and sends frequencies of specific homeopathic medicines into the base solution I understand exactly what he is doing.  Do other people think this is quack medicine?  Yes, I know they do.  Do I think this is quack medicine?  No, I don’t.  I will gladly take the drops he has prescribed for me and I think this will help me in ways that traditional medical doctors cannot.  Is it a placebo effect?  I don’t believe it is because I never expected the hormone drops to help me the first time.  For a placebo to work you have to actually believe the sugar pill will help you and I didn’t.  Actually I wish the medical doctors were not doing the test Tuesday because I’d like to give the homeopathic remedy a chance to work before my medical doctors retest.  But I guess that is okay because the medical doctors say you cannot improve this issue so it will be all the more proof positive later when I actually do!

This is why I say it’s like the universe stacked up the dominoes and this week I knocked them all down!  It took an awful lot of “coincidences” to bring me to the point where I find myself today!
