So glad to see this! I have had the Eclipse flu for weeks :( Have shared this post across my social media tonight :) Thanks Kristen

My thoughts on colds from

The Spiritual Meaning of Coughs and Colds – “Where are you feeling underheard and overwhelmed?”
We live in a society where we are force-fed ideas (and food), often from birth. Our parents and teachers tell us what to think, our bosses tell us what to do, the media tells us what we should aspire to. Why? Because this behaviour keeps us powerless and easy to control – caged chickens produce caged chicks, so to speak. No wonder so many people have stiff necks and shoulders, and trouble speaking from the heart! They’ve been trained to be talking heads. That’s why my favourite saying is “don’t should on me and I won’t should on you…rushing creates 80% of all our problems!”

Suggestions for healing: Frequent coughs, sore throats, colds, flus and bugs are linked to an imbalanced 5th (Throat Chakra – our inner voice – even the word INTUITION adds to 5 in numerology). Many women have under-active thyroids, perhaps because we’re so accustomed to biting our tongues and ‘being polite’. It’s time to stop the madness and be the leader again. For all our sakes, please speak up. Spirit can’t help you without your permission. Putting up with bullying, just hurts the people coming after you. Make the world a better place, not a painful race.Your body is like a puppy, it can’t eat, sleep or toilet without your help. Don’t let other people kick you round any longer! Extreme self-care (as taught by Cheryl Richardson), is an act of rebellion in a society that rushes us senseless. Rejig your diary so it reflects your values…See this video about Steven Covey’s ‘fish tank’ analogy – Steven is a Master 22 lifepath (Master Builder), they’re here to help us go deeper.
