I wouldn’t have believed it unless it happened to me. And it did.
About 8 years ago my husband and I separated. It took 5 years for our divorce to become final. These were highly stressful years as we tried to work out agreements – complicated by many things. Sometimes it felt like my security was at stake. Other times my very survival. Sadly my ex-husband passed away last summer.
Several years into it, my blood pressure went up. My doctor recommended I take medication. At first I resisted. My blood pressure was always low! In the end I agreed. The numbers were convincing, and the consequences weren’t worth it.
Flash forward to a few months ago – still on the medication. I went to donate blood. They found that my blood pressure was 108/66.
Apparently my blood pressure was returning to a healthy level. My doctor was a little incredulous. Even with my parents’ longtime history of high blood pressure. My blood pressure was back down. My doctor and I agreed that I would stop taking the medication.
This morning my blood pressure was 114/73 – as low as when I was in high school.
I attribute this change to doing my own emotional “work” – connecting over and over with what I’m feeling and needing. Letting my feelings flow like a child. Grieving what it is that I am wanting and not getting. Being with my feelings no matter what.
Healing my heart, my mind, AND my body.
I believe in these kinds of “miracles.”
In peace and love, Teresa
