From Tense to Aware with Belly Button Healing: Story of Change by Morgan Garza

From Tense to Aware with Belly Button Healing Story of Change by Morgan Garza
My gut health has always hung in a delicate balance and I’ve suffered from varying degrees of pain and discomfort in my abdomen almost my entire life...or for as long as I can remember at least. I’ve never been someone who could say that I have a strong stomach.

As a child I was taken to nutritionist after nutritionist to try to figure out what was physically wrong with my stomach. But nothing was ever found and my pain and lack of appetite was attributed to a dairy intolerance. While I am lactose intolerant to this day, I imagine it would have been better for me to see a psychologist rather than a nutritionist.

What I didn’t know then was that my gut was responsible for my hormones and acted as my emotional storage shed for that which I wouldn’t express.

I am a highly sensitive person and very empathetic so not only do I experience a lot of emotions myself, I also take on a lot of other people’s energies. This becomes very burdensome and lodges in my gut, which then becomes tense and stagnant. I’ve always struggled with expressing myself because I feel so much all the time that I am afraid if I truly reveal myself, it will be rather unsightly or downright terrifying.

It wasn’t until I started practicing yoga and strengthening my mind body practice that I, to much alarm, realized just how much tension there was in my entire abdomen, from front to back! Yoga and breathing exercises helped a lot both physically and mentally, but there was still constant tension, not pain, just stagnant and tense energy.

After experiencing Belly Button Healing at the workshop in Sedona, I felt a shift in awareness that helped me realize I can control my emotions and tension through regular and mindful stimulation of my belly button. During the workshop I felt myself nodding along with everything Ilchi Lee was saying. From the anatomical to the spiritual, belly button healing suddenly made perfect sense.

The stomach is not a part of the body that gets much love in general. I personally never touch my own tummy because it is pretty much always on the fence between peace and war. But when I started doing the short exercise demonstrated, I felt my entire body relax and my tummy grew warm and happy. I was surprised by how much I was holding myself from my head to my toes. I consider myself to be a very easy going and relaxed person, but my body would beg to differ.

While I waited for my one-on-one healing session with a professional, I went outside to sit and marinate in the mind-blow I’d just experienced. The breathtaking scenery of Sedona along with the immense sense of tranquility I felt were some of the most peaceful moments I can remember in the not-so-recent past.

The time came for my healing session and I was not surprised to hear that my organs were tense and there were weak pockets around my tummy. After a brief massage, my healer, Juniper, raised the Healing Life tool Ilchi Lee created specifically for belly button healing, aligned the tip with my navel, told me to breathe, and went for it.

Initially it was incredibly, and almost unbearably, uncomfortable. However I didn’t experience physical pain, but an intense feeling of a previously untouched area being deeply stimulated. Once those first few seconds were over, I could actually feel parts inside my gut relax and release, which helped my entire body surrender. She must have held the tool there for about a minute (felt like a century) and when she released it and I settled into the tingling and calming sensation, I knew that this was how I would be able to heal.

I’ve been practicing, using my thumb, for the past week since the workshop and I have a notable change in mood with more sense of hope and determination. I also have become much more aware of releasing tension when I catch myself holding it in my abdomen and have greatly strengthened my mind/body connection. I am learning more about my body than in years combined and I know this is only the beginning. I feel hopeful and excited about healing my belly button and related ailments.

The gut really is the 2nd brain.

I plan to continue using the Belly Button Healing method and am confident in the fact that I have complete control over the state of my health and wellbeing.

This has opened my eyes, my heart and my mind to my true healing power.
