Electric current in my spine

Went to the new chiropractor this morning. His office is out toward Lake Travis, deep in the cedar-studded hills. I was reacting by the time I got there.

Unexpectedly, he muscle-tested me for airborne allergens and declared me reactive to grass, cedar, and pecan pollen. Then he concocted a homeopathic remedy, which just tastes nasty, although I am happy to say I’m one of the 80 percent for whom it works.

Then to work. Lots of meetings and getting caught up after being out sick a day. Yoga at lunch. I agreed to teach the beginner class on Monday. Another meeting earlier this evening.

Off and on today, sneezing, nasal congestion, and a feeling of inflammation inside my nostrils. It’s annoying and a bit fatiguing. Remembered acupressure points to ease nasal and sinus congestion.

When I was ready to sit, I took the nasty medicine and drank kombucha to allow a more pleasant taste to linger on my taste buds. Sat in the dark in half lotus.

Quiet. Breathe. Dark. Sense body.

I think I feel a current in my spine. Was that a current? Pause. Yes. There is an electric current in my spine. I’ve been taking pulses (my own and others) acupuncture-style, building sensitivity and not wanting to know what the interpretation is. Just a couple of weeks ago I felt a current at my wrist for the first time.

Now I feel the current again, in my spine. It feels like electricity, like when I’ve gotten a mild shock before, but with the intensity knob turned down to barely perceptible. A warm buzz, almost a flow.

Dang. Who’d have guessed there would be so much to be aware of, sitting in silent stillness?

Achoo! Achoo! Okay, okay! Good night!

  1. Interesting day…thanks for sharing. Where is Lake Travis exactly? Are you interested in looking at a natural product that could give you much relief? Also a highly recommended site to view which is assisting people in many ways with illnesses they felt they were to be attached to forever is:
    I purchesed a DVD today – Yoga into oneness = Yoga for beginners…I so look forward to beginning.
    I have spent today preparing for a trip to New South Wales to celegrate my Mum’s 90th birthday…about 9 hours travel.
    Look forward to your next post. Stay well.


  2. Lake Travis is west of Austin about 20 miles, Pat. Thanks for your recommendations. I will check out the food site; plan to continue the remedy from my chiropractor. Enjoy your yoga DVD–take it as deliciously slowly as you need to to really get the most out of it!
