I had a lot going on last week and never finished my report on my treatment from July 16th.
I had an amazing experience with SI 19 (Listening Palace) and LR 14 (Gate of Hope). I felt hopeful again, not all angsty, and able to address the issue. And I felt heard, briefly, when I called my teacher the next day.
My acupuncturist told me to go home and look up SI 19, and when I did, I saw in the Lonnie Jarrett book the quote I had read the day before, aloud in my Theory class, about ‘listening deeply’ and how that can be all the treatment a patient needs. I had not gotten the quote from that book, but from a monograph by the same author I read in the library when researching another point.
That was freaky enough, since this author has written thousands of pages and the one quote I read aloud in class the day before was right in the description of the point chosen for me.
And when I called the teacher the next day, she agreed to give the whole class a point back on the quiz. I would argue she should have given us back 2 points, but she is very hard to argue with. And agreed to provide practice questions for us. (In class later she was more tentative about this). I felt that she had heard me, though, in the phone conversation. I don’t usually feel heard by her. It seemed miraculous, considering that the point includes effects on
- the hearing
- the ability to listen deeply
- the ability for others to hear you
This caused me to marvel at the power of acupuncture. Plus I had hope for the first time in a long time, that everything would be all right. (LR 14 is called Gate of Hope).
