Without getting to the root cause, you’re only compensating.
When you compensate, you create opportunities for defences. And healing is difficult, if not impossible, with defences in place.
The problem is that, with a defence in place, you don’t want to let it go. It’s protecting you, even if it’s hindering you.
Over the Christmas/New Year limbo period, I found myself with a niggling sinus issue. It wasn’t that bad, but it was annoying to have a minor pressure build-up of fluid on the left side and occasional running.
In fact, it was more annoying that that used to be my reality as a child… to the point where both sides were blocked constantly and I had to resort to mouth breathing.
Over the years as a healer and working on my own healing journey, even though I may not have solved all my allergic symptoms, I did manage to overcome my sinus issues. And return my breathing back to diaphragmatic breathing, with persistence and will.
So, to have this little niggling sinus show up that no longer was the norm of my reality, was quite noticeable.
