This entire year’s articles will be a series of healing articles on my arthritic hip healing journey and then healing after arthroscopic hip surgery. I have been dealing with hip pain due to arthritis for the past few years. When I got it checked out, my orthopedist told me that although he is too young now, at some point I will need a new hip due to degenerative arthritis. This less than wonderful news was very upsetting to me, but now was the time to accelerate my Reiki healing. Then it was back to normal. So let’s get back to my workouts as there is still nothing to do but deal with the occasional pain of arthritis and continue with Reiki to help.
During one of my workouts last April, I realized that something was terribly wrong. After training and the next day, I did not feel the usual pain as if I had done a great workout. It was a sharp, continuous pain that we discovered shortly after through an MRI arthrogram, that he now had a labrum tear. Good grief, that pain was terrible and continued to be terrible for the rest of the year, including with Reiki, physical therapy, and prolotherapy injections to promote natural healing! When I felt enough was enough, my doctor and I decided that, for me, I should have arthroscopic surgery to repair the tear in my labrum and whatever else they found there. This surgery took place on January 30, 2020.
The following series of articles was written as a summary of the healing that took place over the course of the last year and a half to where I am now after surgery, and all the different modalities that I have used during the process. I hope that through my writing, people who read my articles will see that there is no one healing modality that is unique and ready. True healing takes place throughout your life, and sometimes even when you think you’ve gotten through a particularly difficult life experience, you likely haven’t released as much of that issue as you think. So over the next several months, I will share with you the healing transformation process that occurred while working on the arthritis in my hip, along with the different healing modalities I used and how they have helped me through a very difficult and painful period. time in my life. Hopefully, as I travel through my personal healing journey, everyone seeks the help they may need knowing that we are all unique. And so is our process, which is why I tell all my clients to be patient, as curing anything is definitely a process.
I have been practicing Reiki for over 10 years and now I am a Reiki Master and a Medical Reiki Master. My Reiki teachings are very personal to me in the fact that I have learned the hard way that emotional pain, sustained within long enough, actually wreaks havoc on your physical body. The test for me was cancer twice! Sadly, it took me some time to digest, but let it sink in! The emotional pain inside me created cancer in my body TWICE!
Some time ago, I wrote an article on how internalized emotions turn into physical pain. What I did not know at the time is that pain that sometimes comes in the form of arthritis, a deterioration of your bones and that could be due to holding on to anger. I learned this from a beautiful light worker, Rita V Klyauzova, who, through the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique. She was able to show me exactly what was inside of me. Through Rita’s way of healing, she helped me learn that I still needed to forgive those past emotional pains that I was apparently holding on to so tightly.
My fear was that if I didn’t do the work of releasing all my emotional stuff before the surgery, the arthritis problem could continue with a vengeance or even worse in the same area. So of course now I need to do some research and this is what I found:
Release Fear and Anger to Cure Arthritis, Jul 9, 2019 by Christiane Northrup, MD (1) https://www.drnorthrup.com/heal-arthritis-release-fear-anger/
“Pain of any kind has emotional roots. In fact, studies show that emotional factors are crucial to the development of RA. Emotions associated with arthritis are often unexpressed anger, resentment, aggression, criticism (of oneself and others), lack of support, and fear. Experts suggest that one of the reasons why women suffer from RA four times more frequently than men is that women are taught from early childhood not to express anger “. (one)
I came across another article written by Jeanette Raymond, PhD on September 9, 2012, titled Unexpressed Anger and Stress Predispose Women to Rheumatoid Arthritis. (2) https://losangeleswestsidetherapy.com/2012/09/09/unexpressed-anger-and-stress-predispose-women-to-rheumatoid-arthritis/
“A report published in the Journal of Chronic Disease, as early as 1964, reviewed the research on the amount of personality of people with rheumatoid arthritis diagnosed by a doctor and found that those who suffer from it tend to be self-denying, masochistic, conformist, self-conscious , shy, inhibited, perfectionists. and interested in sports and games “. (two)
I’ve done a lot of internal work throughout my life to be okay, and after two bouts of cancer, I really didn’t think I was still holding on to anything. I thought I had released all, if not most, of the emotional pain from my past. Oh boy was I wrong … residual emotional pain from my past still lingering within me helped generative arthritis and then due to compromised hip a labrum tear was very easy to achieve. I worked with Reiki every night while lying in bed on my hip, but walking and living daily life did not help it heal at all, as the arthritis helped it continue to deteriorate and wear down the labrum.
Even after practicing Reiki for 10 years, helping others, and doing my own inner work, it seems like I still have a healing journey ahead of me. The conclusion here that I would like to share is that forgiveness heals everything. So forgiveness is where my journey begins.
If you find yourself in a place where your life no longer works for you, find a healer who resonates with you and allow him to help you find a way to change the dance in your life. And if you are on your own healing journey, I will remind you that healing is complicated. And it takes time, so be patient with yourself. It’s not my strong suit, I admit it, but that’s why I’m sharing my story.
I have been fortunate to meet many different types of healers who have helped me on my journey along the way. I was lucky to have found Rita, and a client of mine brought her to me. Words can’t even begin to thank any of them enough for the loving light and knowledge they brought me when our paths crossed. It just shows that everything in life is divinely timed. It’s my time to release some things and fix this hip.
My mission is to help people find the light, either through healing sessions that I can offer, sharing the work of other healers, or through my own personal healing experiences that I have shared. If I can help a single person with any of these things, then I’m happy I did. So keep your eyes peeled for the next part of my healing journey:
Shadow work releases pain, bringing light! Let’s dive in!
