29. Echo

Gurgling intestines.  Movement in the lower abdomen. Energy focusing to the area of the liver, the area of the masses… Fear?

A photo of a child full of fear describes how the author feels about her pain.
Fear from the pain of cancer is like a child full of fear

In the last day, a reminder, an echo, is passing through my body.  The mind sees the similarities between the current body and the moments or days before I went to the hospital.  It is not classic pain.  I do not perceive most of the body interpretations as pain, not how people would think of it.

But it is a noticing.  Our bodies are designed to react like this.  If I put my hand on the hot stove one time, and suffered a burn, the body sends out a warning plea whenever I am near a hot stove.  It means nothing.  But there is a perception, a fear.  

Fear is a child.  It needs love.  It needs comfort.  It needs to be acknowledged and reminded that all is well in God’s Eternal realm.  The journey is unfolding.  All is well.
