I have been told by those who know a lot more than I, that it isn't possible to be tired. The feeling, they tell me, is one of being uninspired, and not 'tired' at all. It's all a state of mind, and as such can easily be overcome.
Perhaps that's true. Perhaps if I spend a £1 wisely this evening and pick up the winning lottery numbers, I shouldn't feel tired for the rest of the year!
Or perhaps I really do need to rest and recuperate - after all I've had a busy time. I've walked miles and miles with the dogs, getting up early every morning and out again in the evening. My days have been full of little children, whose energy never diminishes until they turn it off in sleep. My energy seems to move a lot slower these days, it is as if it is mindful of not blowing a fuse. It comes in gently, and drifts off unexpectedly. I have to be aware, and conscious and kind.
But I adore the little children. I love their honesty. They have me smiling all day long, and that is the greatest of gifts. They seem to like to be around me too, and when we say goodbye it is always with a promise for more again tomorrow, or the day after. When I leave them, I leave a part of myself in their eyes, and carry a part of them in mine, so when I go to sleep it is their sunny faces that I see. Tired or not, I would not trade this time with them for anything.
A month ago I was in big trouble. I had no energy for the little children because I felt so ill.
I was suffering from the effects of the electromagnetic fields that engulf us. Emfs. I couldn't go on the computer, or watch tv or even visit the supermarket without feeling sick, disoriented and overwhelmed. I was getting more and more sensitive to all electrical sources, everything from mobile phones to hairdriers. It wasn't just tiredness, it was a sickness that was beginning to stop me living a normal life.
And then, my friend gave me her Shungite crystal to wear. It is no exaggeration to say it has transformed the way I feel and live in this world. I do not pretend to understand how it works, but work it does. I have heard this crystal is used by the armed forces to help their personel cope with emfs, so surely one would have to give this remedy much consideration.
Is it all in the mind? Of course. Where else would it be?
All that matters is how you feel.
If wearing a crystal means being well enough to actually get tired from playing with my grandchildren, then wear it I shall. :-)
