Yesterday, I woke up with a terrible headache. I actually went to bed the night before with a slight headache but I drank some water and fell asleep. When I woke up in the middle of the night, the headache was still there pounding away. I ignored it and went back to bed. Woke up at 7am and went for a run, headache was still there but I was focusing on other things and I barely noticed.
When I got home, all the lights were on and my boyfriend was awake getting ready for work. I mentioned my headache to him but continued with my morning routines. I made juice for us and once I sat down, the headache hit me HARD. It was so painful, so horrible, and I almost vomited all those awesome nutrients I had consumed.
I showered, drove myself to work and sat in the office, in complete darkness for 20 minutes before my boss walked in. I didn't even want to turn on the computer. It was THAT debilitating. My boss walks in and finds me in such pain.
He asks, "what's wrong?" I don't make eye contact, and tell him, "my head is pounding PLEASE do not turn on the lights." He turns on the lights. (yea I know). Then he asks, "do you really want to get rid of this headache?" I look at him with the "whachu talkin' 'bout Willis" face. He asks me to sit at the conference table and look him in the eye and tell him whether or not I REALLY wanted to get rid of this headache.
I said YES.
He says, "okay then, from a scale of 1 to 10, how intense is your headache?" I say, "seven." He then asks, "if your headache was a color, what color would it be?" I immediately answer, "RED."
"If your headache was a shape, what shape would it be?" "A square," I responded. "Now, tell me the exact location of your headache?" "It's on the left side of my head, between my ear and eye, near the temple."
He says, "Okay. Now, from a scale of 1 to 10, tell me how intense is your headache?" I look at him and think. I couldn't answer. It was like, it disappeared. I sat there waiting for it to come back because I wanted to prove him wrong. I wanted to tell him those JEDI MIND TRICKS DONT WORK ON ME! But . . . it did. IT WORKED! My painful headache, gone, was he. hmmmm.
Later on, I asked him how he learned this "trick" and he mentioned that he had taken some alternative healing classes in his youth. I'll take it. 24 hours later and the headache is STILL gone and I'm happy.
Keep this in mind next time you or someone you know has a painful headache. It might just work. It's like that funny hiccup remedy my friend tried on me last year at the Zumba convention. I'll tell you about that one next time.
