when i respond (to ANYTHING) from a pre-set point of view, it’s usually a “me” thing.
when i’m quiet and let the moment reveal the appropriate response, it’s more of a “we” thing

Cinnamon for Reactive Hypoglycemia

CinnamonFor most of my life I did not realize this, but I have come to find out through research and observation that my body has a hard time processing sugar.  It seems that my body has a negative reaction to foods with a high glycemic load.

Eating candy, white bread, most pasta ,and even many types of fruit, seem to cause the body to have an insulin rush and subsequent Low Blood Sugar Type symptoms…commonly known as Reactive Hypoglycemia.

Almost immediately after eating sugary food or snacks, I can feel my adrenaline rise and my heart pound.  I get nervous, tense, irritable, and anxious.  My body seems to go into fight or flight mode.

My brain starts to get a little fuzzy, and my mind starts to shut down. I can suddenly get very sleepy and have an urgent need to lie down.  This is especially dangerous when driving my car.

Recently I began experimenting with taking cinnamon in hopes of alleviating the Reactive Hypoglycemia symptoms.

I am here to report that it is working!

No adrenaline rush, no mind fuzz, no anxiousness, and no need to lie down after consuming sugary foods and snacks.

I am not sure of the technical reasons why it works for this body, but it is clear that cinnamon definitely helps the cells absorb and utilize sugar in a beneficial way.

I don’t plan on becoming a junk food junkie or anything, but at least I now have  a solution if I know I will be eating in a way that would previously have knocked me for a loop.

Just wanted to share in case anyone has similar issue…

Waking Up In Free Fall

freefallI am finding that the business of releasing the “me” can be somewhat scary at times.

When silence arrives I often find myself inspired to act on an intuition or urge that ordinarily I would not follow…or even notice.

But sometimes after I take that leap into the abyss, the “me” rushes back in and it is as if I suddenly find myself in free fall.

This is terrifying for the “me” to wake up and find itself in places it avoided previously.

My job when this happens is to once again ignore the “me” and trust that the process is happening exactly how it is supposed to.

Even if things turn out in a fashion the “me” does not find preferable, I still must have faith that the universe is taking care of all the details and that everything is OK just as it is.
