A long time ago, I was a student, teacher, and practitioner of Cranio-Sacral Therapy. It is beautiful work. I first discovered it in meditation, and called it “Sitting in the Earth Rhythms” before I had any formal training.
It’s often quite subtle work, and while teachers can describe the process and help you experience it for yourself, it is an art form that can take years to master.
I cannot claim to have ever been a master at Cranial work, but I have a good understanding of the subtle breathing of the body in its environment; the slow and gentle timing of the bones’ movements, opening out and narrowing in again like a long, slow breath. Like a flower’s petals. And how the connective tissue responds, how the muscles, organs, and fluids of the body flow in accordance with those deep inner currents.
And then one day, several years after I met Guruji, I stood up too fast in an unfamiliar environment and cracked my head on the corner of a thick wooden bookshelf right at the fontanel.
I saw white.
I staggered and tried to get my balance. Who knew those children’s cartoons of birds chirping in a circle over the clobbered guy’s head was a real thing?
The pain was intense, and didn’t go away. Over the course of the day, I rested, drank lots of water, rubbed essential oils on my tender scalp, and trusted I would feel better the next day.
I didn’t. In fact, I was far worse. My nose now seemed to be living somewhere in the region of my chin, my breathing was depressed, and I felt like I had cotton stuffed in my head to the point that I couldn’t think properly. Also, I was extremely over-emotional, and any sounds, particularly if it was loud or unexpected, made me cry. It was such a global physical experience, I couldn’t even think what to do to help myself. I kept telling myself I would get better, that the next day it would all start lifting.
The truth was that I was not recovering, and in my poor mental state I was unable to make a decision about what to do. Thankfully, a good friend strongly recommended I contact Guruji. Seconds after I sent him an email, my head began to shift.
All of the tiny bones at the bridge of the nose and around the eyes began to move. Like a Chinese puzzle coming together at lightning speed, all of the bones in my head flowed with quick, efficient precision, and I realigned smoothly and with grace. In less than three minutes, my nose migrated back its proper place, my breathing returned to normal, and I felt myself recover my ability to think again. The cotton feeling in my head was mostly gone, though that took another few hours to dissipate completely. By the next day, I was entirely recovered and it was as if that accident had never happened.
This is the power of The Trivedi Effect®, and I am so grateful to Guruji for his understanding and help! This was something that could have had dramatic long-term effects for my health and well-being, and yet through the Grace of God and Guruji, it was cleared up immediately and completely!
