One Good Thing To Do After A Long Migraine
The Continuing Pursuit for Migraine Elimination and Pain Reduction
You might feel really unstable and dizzy after a long migraine attack, or a short one for that matter. I have found it helpful to clean and ground my energy to help me feel more clear minded after a long attack.
A shower helps clean the aura. This is the best time to ground yourself before you go rushing back into life. I don't normally talk about energy, but it has made a big difference to me.
I promise I won't be airy fairy for too long!
This simple technique is from by Robert Sampson MD and Patricia Hughes B.S.N. in their book Breaking Out of Environmental Illness (1997).
It is a great book to read, so here is the proper reference should you like to read it: Sampson, R. and Hughes, P. (1997) Breaking Out of Environmental Illness. Bear & Company Publishing: Santa Fe, NM. pg. 202
1. I now ground myself.
2. Take some deep breaths.
3. I give all my cells permission to release all imbalances I now hold that
are associated with this reaction.
4. I fill all these spaces with pink love (or rainbow colors) and golden healing energy.
5. It is now safe to be balanced.
6. I am safe.
So I just sit quietly and clear my mind (meditate) while I read this to myself and breathe. In my minds eye I see all the energy I no longer need just floating away.
I normally allow a rainbow of colors to fill me, whatever my body needs. And then I finish with gold flowing up and then down. Gently. You don't want too much movement after a migraine.
I finish by focusing on my feet on the ground and feeling the floor beneath them.
Sometimes I imagine tree roots down into the earth for even more stability.

Hot eBooksOne: I highly recommend reading Cynthia Perkin's Mindfulness Over Migraines ebook that explains the science behind mindfulness and why it helps migraines. And she explains the method step by step that she uses to eliminate her migraines in 15 minutes. Yes, you read that correctly ... eliminate in 15 minutes. It will be the best $6.99 you ever spend!
Timing is everything when aborting a migraine attack. Do you know your tipping point? You will after you read her book. It changed everything for me.
Two: I just started reading this ebook Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: How To Treat and Prevent Migraines Without Medicines By Angela A. Stanton Ph.D. and you know I harp on about being proactive right? This ebook is all about how Angela Stanton PhD. cured ... yup cured her migraines after almost twenty years of suffering.
It is about balancing the minerals that cause migraines (you have to get the book to see which ones)! And it has amazing information about migraine causes and symptoms. I will keep you posted on my progress, but for under $5.00 US on Kindle it is worth experimenting with, now. Why wait!
My motto is to end needless suffering.
Share Your StoryAs you know pain is very distracting and disruptive. It is very hard to think straight with a migraine even if the pain phase is covered by your abortive, you may still experience confusion or an array of other migraine symptoms.
