One of the things I like about writing about things out of sequence, means I can put anything in whenever I want to. I wrote this post last week, before the Eurovision ones, but didn’t have time to add it to my blog (I like to keep a few spare posts just in case I don’t have time to write anything new on any given day).
I don’t think there has been a ‘Carry on…’ movie with that title, although I could be wrong. <Quick pause> and I am! I’ve just done a quick Google search, and it was the fifth in the series to be made. So, to start this particular blog again…
This isn’t about the movie, ‘Carry on Regardless’, but it is about, erm, carrying on regardless. In particular, carrying on regardless of toothache.
Well, actually it’s more gum ache than toothache as the tooth isn’t particularly sore, and the gum was swollen to almost three times its size at some point during today. I look as though I have stuffed a hard boiled sweet just inside my cheek, and it must be swollen as it can be seen on the outside of my face. Even with my jowls. I looked slightly one-sided, although I’m glad to say the swelling is going down now.
I’ve taken paracetamol, which eased the pain slightly, but the tugging of the swelling was a constant reminder that there was a problem, and that reminded me of the pain.
I tried wobbling the tooth directly by the swelling, which probably wasn’t a good idea, but it didn’t do anything either.
Then, I remembered my magical cure of all cures. Salt water. Bathe in it to ease cuts and grazes. Gargle with it to ease sore throats. And reduce swelling. Yes, it worked for me. It’s still there slightly now, and I will gargle again in a short while, but I can definitely feel a difference.
Earlier on today, I had to carry on regardless in work. Apart from mentioning my swelling to a few people. Not that they’d notice it, of course… I worked as I usually do, and got things done just the same.
The thing is, with the Law of Attraction, what you think about, you bring about, so if you think about pain, or what is causing you pain, you’ll notice more pain. Think about being well and healthy, and you’ll be well and healthy. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before. But surely, you must be thinking – or maybe not, I can’t be judgmental – gargling with salt water is thinking of the pain and the cause of the pain. In one way it is. Of course it is – you don’t gargle with salt water for no reason, just as you wouldn’t stick a sticking plaster on a knee without a graze. Where I find a difference here, is what I am thinking whilst I am gargling.
Similar to The Secret movie, but also different, is another movie and book called ‘What the bleep do we know?’ I haven’t read the book, but have seen the movie a couple of times – in case you haven’t guessed, I love this type of thing. Anyway, in ‘The bleep’, there is a section about an experiment on the affects of certain emotive words on water, words such as ‘love’, ‘hate’ and ‘beauty’ etcetera. The scientists involved in the experiment analysed water molecules after they had been placed on these words, and the differences between the molecules were astounding. The ‘nice’ words generated crisp, clear lines and colours in the molecules, and the ‘not nice’ words generated murky, uneven molecules. (I’d recommend having a look at the movie to see what I mean)
While I was gargling with my salt water, I was imagining the purifying effects of the water and the salt on my body. I was thinking of ‘pure’ thoughts, and thanking the water for healing me. I was imagining the pure healing qualities of the water drawing out whatever was causing the swelling, and my own body’s natural healing also taking place.
Like I said, I will have to gargle again because I don’t expect it to work in the first go (I’m using the Law of Attraction with that thought too, by the way) but I know that with time, and the fantastic healing qualities of water, my face will be back to normal again soon.
Then, I’ll have to work on actually losing some weight. And the wonderful qualities of water can help there too!
More ‘random ramblings’ soon!
Since writing this post, I am pleased to say that the swelling has gone without needing a trip to the dentist or doctor.
