I suspected nothing wrong on Wednesday night, but on Thursday morning woke up in pain everywhere. Head, back, neck, stomach and legs, every part of my body aching.
By Friday morning not much progress was made, other than not being in quite so much pain. A visit to the doctor was complicated by the fact that there were no clear symptoms pointing in one direction. The doc put it down to some or other influenza and we treated the symptoms.
Well it's Sunday now and I'm still feeling a little worse for ware but getting better slowly. Not being able to peg the symptoms directly has proved to be quite frustrating. I wonder if that sometimes happens in our spiritual lives too?
So much goes wrong that we end up not being able to diagnose our spiritual ailments. I guess in reality dealing with spiritual ailments is no different to dealing with our physical ones. We have to start with the most obvious symptoms first.
I'd say a great place to start when dealing with either body, mind or soul is getting lots of sleep. Our body cannot heal if it does not get rest but our spiritual judgements will also be clouded if we are fatigued.
With a good dose of sleep we are usually able to think a little clearer and find the guidance we are looking for to heal our situation.
