Quite the Dream!

I am currently a student here at OHAC and on Monday I came down with an unpleasant gum infection. (I promise there is a connection between these two points.) By Wednesday I was having trouble sleeping due to the pain and come Thursday evening, my cheek was swollen and half my face was a painful mess. Around 4am (this morning, Friday), I woke up due to the pain in my mouth. I couldn't even lay on the left side of my face. I thought to myself, "Man, I'm going to have to go to the Dr. This infection is just getting worse." My next thought was, "I hate going to the Dr. All they are going to do is prescribe antibiotics, which I don't want to take! My body knows how to heal itself. My body knows how to heal!" And with that thought, I was able to tumble back off to sleep.
The dream that followed was a fellow classmate called me and asked to come over for a massage. When she arrived, my massage room was perfect: candles, cozy, warm. She then mentions that she doesn't want a massage but would rather give me some energy work. So my dream self, gladly hops onto the massage table and curls up in the fetal position (weird) and settles in for some energy work. As the dream continues, my classmate provides energy work and then mentions my spleen meridian (which we haven't learned about in class yet). At the end of my energy work my dream ends and a new weird dream begins. My alarm goes off and it's been 3 hours since I was woken up by the pain. As I drag myself out of bed, I realize something. My cheek is no longer swollen, the pain is completely gone, and even my gums are back to normal! Holy Smokes!
I wouldn't believe it, if it wasn't my very own mouth! I couldn't wait to go to class and tell my classmates and Cynthia what had taken place! Now, the fact that my mouth had miraculously healed within hours of confirming to myself that my body knew how to heal during a dream energy session was pretty spectacular... but the insight that Cynthia shared once I'd told this story was pretty amazing too! She explained that mouth issues can be caused by 'stomach dis-harmonies' and one way to treat this is through the spleen meridian! Wowza.
It's pretty spectacular the things that can show up when we tap in to our innate body wisdom... And that was Quite the Dream!
