I have been vaccinated recently (for tetanus/diphtheria/polio/pertussis). And I would like to share here about adverse reactions, as there is so much discussion about this.
Initially I felt resistant to vaccination and I avoided the subject, see my previous blog about this: Vaccination – more than just self-protection.
I chose to vaccinate because I felt that it was the responsible decision to make, for the whole community.
After I had the injection, my arm was hurting and releasing a lot. What it felt like was something very old had been stored there and was now being released.
Infectious diseases are from the old era – when they were a real life threat and people died from theses diseases like flies. Today – thanks to vaccination and improved hygiene – this threat is no longer our main health concern. Infectious diseases now account for 10% of all deaths, much less than in the past.
By saying YES to vaccination I felt like I was saying YES to humanity, YES to clearing the old energy that I was holding onto, that had kept me feeling separate. I feel like I had kept myself aloof, somewhat standing back from fully participating in life – by avoiding vaccination I could keep that illusion up and preserve the bubble that was holding me separate from other people. It felt like a protection.
It felt as though when I got vaccinated this whole package was released and my body had to clear it. So five days after the vaccination I got the flu and had to stay in bed for two weeks.
Now you could argue, as many do, that vaccination is bad for you, because I got sick afterwards, as it seemed somehow related.
I feel it was a blessing – an opportunity for my body to clear old energy – something (a lot of disregard for myself and other people) I had denied looking at and held onto and which was well overdue to be released.
My feeling is that the adverse reactions people experience after vaccination may not just be related to the vaccination itself, but – as in my case – they may be clearing an old energy we have been holding in our bodies. And so vaccination, as with so many things in life that seem like a problem on the surface, can be a blessing, and another opportunity for us to heal and make more space in our bodies for the love that we truly are.
