really minor injuries

"Really Quite Bad at Home Repair" Bob Zimmermann

I was discussing amusing family anecdotes with @peonyaurora today and that got us thinking. Bob Zimmermann was really busy during the formative years when he might have learned about home repair, but once he retires he likes doing stuff around the house. He’s…not always successful

AKA: Bad Bob Zimmermann as unfortunate DIY things that have happened to my family members.

  • Knocked a large spider off the house and onto his bare leg, tried to shoot it off with the power washer, removed some skin.
  • Tried to tap a piece of the toilet hardware back into place with a hammer, shattered the entire toilet bowl
  • Knocked a lamp over while carrying a 2x4 to the basement
  • Superglued his own fingers together
  • Lost control of a mattress he was trying to slide down the stairs and it embedded in the drywall at the bottom
  • Ran over a yellow jacket’s nest with the lawn mower, panicked and ran inside. They were chasing wasps out of their house for days
  • Built a table that sagged so much in the middle everyone’s glasses would slide down it.

These are some of Jack’s favorite stories to tell, especially when his parents try to embarrass him with tales of his childhood. (feel free to add your own)

On The Methods of Energy Healing

I have yet to find a post on energy healing that focuses on the process beyond pinpointing and clearing blockages. I feel like there’s more to healing that could be talked about, though there’s definitely a good chance that I’ve just not found the posts that go into detail about this. Nevertheless, here’s my take on approaches for energy healing, specifically for injuries in the physical or astral. (I don’t mention the use of crystals and herbs and such because I don’t use them and therefore don’t feel like I should try to cover something I’m not familiar with.)

There are three major approaches I think of when trying to heal injuries and their pros and cons:

Increasing Healing Speed

The first is boosting someone’s natural healing process. I see this method done most often when people are doing healing, so I think this is kind of the go-to method for most healers. The way I would go about this is to envision the injury healing in progression, consciously seeing the stages of healing while pouring energy into it. 

Pros

  • Because we’ve all sustained some sort of injury before and know what the process of healing is like, envisioning this method is easier
  • It’s a solid method-not much could go wrong as long as you intend to heal. At worst, nothing will happen

Cons

  • This can be pretty draining, especially if it’s a significant injury. Let’s say that it takes 10 points of energy for an injury to naturally heal over the course of 10 days. Regardless of time, the same amount of energy is required to heal that injury. Essentially what you would be doing is condensing the energy spending by using maybe 4-5 points of energy over the course of the healing session and then allowing the injury to heal itself in less than 10 days, instead of 1 point every day for 10 days.
  • It might also take a toll on the person you’re healing. This would happen if you intend for the injury to heal faster but you don’t provide the energy to do so. I’ve only seen this happen with beginner healers or those who don’t have much energy to spare. It’s not a terrible thing, but definitely not something that you want to happen without warning.

Erasing the Injury

The second method is erasing the injury, or erasing the effects of the injury. This would be done by maybe visualizing an eraser rubbing an injury away leaving no traces. You would be dispersing the energy of injury in the area until it is minimized. Not gonna lie, this one’s kind of a weird one but it works well for some people. I personally only do this for minor injuries and particularly if the pain needs to be dealt with immediately.

Pros

  • It works really well on minor injuries, and is relatively fast (maybe because I don’t like to use this method on bigger things though)
  • You see more immediate effects, to a point. Meaning the pain may lessen faster but the injury won’t suddenly be gone or anything like that.

Cons

  • I would say that this one is harder to visualize, because it’s not the same as envisioning the progression of natural healing. Envisioning something that would not occur in reality, like an injury being erased, can be a little difficult.
  • In my opinion this shouldn’t be done on significant injuries, or at least it shouldn’t be the only healing done. This is because most significant injuries should heal at a moderate rate so that it doesn’t take a toll on the body and so that the body can learn from the injury itself. Many times when a significant injury happens, the person needs to learn from it and erasing might interfere with that.

Softening the Impact

This method goes to the root of the problem and requires sending energy back in time to when the injury was inflicted. Usually I only need to use this for very deep wounds. This one’s a little tricky to explain, but for those who are already experienced in energy work it will probably work just by intuitively finding the origin of the injury and then going from there. What would help is to try to feel the timeline of a person’s healthfulness and then to try to look for the initial point where the energy signature of the injury occurred. For those not as experienced in energy work, you might need to ask a person about how the injury came to be, and then to guide energy to that point in time. Once you locate the root of the wound, what you would do is lessen the impact of the injury by cushioning the affected area with energy. So let’s say a kid fell off his bike and bruised his knee, you would send energy back to right before he fell and wrap your energy around it in a cushion form. You could also send energy to right after he fell if you want to do a first aid type initial healing. There’s more that can be explained about this method but this is the gist of it. 

Pros

  • It’s really good for deep wounds as mentioned before. For wounds that leave scars, this is the method I would use to treat them.
  • It’s thorough. Getting to the root of problems is almost always the most thorough way, and I say “almost” just to give people the benefit of the doubt.

Cons

  • It can be intrusive. Any situation where a deep wound is inflicted is one that that a person likely would not want to share. There is a possibility that you will accidentally read into what happened even if you try not to. There’s also the possibility of the injured person reliving the moment as you’re healing. Be very careful of respecting people’s space and privacy when using this method. I tell people how I will go about healing them regardless, but always, always ask for a person’s permission before using this method, and make sure they 100% understand what you will be doing and what could happen.
  • This method requires a lot of detailed work, and can be difficult. I do not recommend this to newer energy workers, because it takes some time getting used to energy before being able to pinpoint times that healing needed to occur. This is not a challenge for new energy workers!!! Don’t read this and think that you should try to be “the exception” or whatever. Don’t try to make your healing sessions a source of triumph. The best energy workers are those who are responsible. The best healers do what is the safest and most comfortable for those they’re working with. By knowing what you should and shouldn’t do and what your pace should be, you’re being a good energy worker already.

Anyways this post is getting much longer than I anticipated. For those that might read this, please note that these are my experiences only and that they don’t pertain to every healer. These are also not the only methods of healing, just some of them. As I progress and if people bring up stuff I’ll probably come back to edit or add to this post. One of my companions is a healer as well, so if she shows different things that she does I may tack that on as well.

anonymous asked:

im not sure how to take the power au, theres so much you can do and so many ways it can go, like the organization or the desperate father or like a million others ways, i just want them all, but how about no more hurt and more domestic? like kazuya accidentally cuts his finger and eijun healing him but 'you stupid pitcher you need your fingers' or he heals ryousuke when he finds out he's hurt and there goes the angst again, im trying to find fluff

BUT ANON THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU ALL THIS TIMEEEEEE OMFG (Ŏ艸Ŏ)

POWER AU IN A DOMESTIC SETTING YES

YOU HAD ME AT DOMESTIC

Eijun’s powers itself can only lead to some angst tbh, you can’t avoid it lol but omg fluff

Imagine Eijun secretly absorbing really minor injuries and wounds though.

I’ve imagined him secretly absorbing his grandpa’s backache when he was younger whenever he massages him. And then maybe he carries this habit to Seidou and just unconsciously absorbs the ache on his teammates’ muscles when he massages them. And like everybody is impressed by his massaging skills but Miyuki or Mochi or Harucchi does notice that Eijun seems tired and distraught after every session. And they just don’t get it. And everything just comes together when they finally discover Eijun’s abilities that when he absorbed Miyuki’s Seiko arc injury i cri

And I’ve been thinking that once everybody in Seidou knows his powers, ofc they’d refuse Eijun’s offer or ‘healing.’ So maybe Eijun just can’t resist injured animals? I don’t even know how it would work lmao like if a bird has its wings injured, Eijun would absorb them and would feel the pain on his arms instead???

And Miyuki would just be hysterical at this point cause hOW MANY TIMES HAVE I TOLD YOU TO STOP ABSORBING DOG/CAT/BIRD INJURIES JFC

lol

Also, I’d like it that when Eijun absorbs the pain, the injury won’t really manifest on him and it won’t have any damage on his body but the pain is real and it’s there.

This is probably why Eijun is totally fine with absorbing others’ injuries. He can just endure it himself.

“It’s no big deal, senpai! It’s not like I’m really getting injured instead.”

“But you still feel the pain, you idiot.”

“Yeah, but at least you’re not injured anymore. I can bear the pain! I’m strong!!”

insert angry distraught Miyuki getting pissed and lecturing Eijun of the importance of his own well-being and that he doesn’t care if he doesn’t actually get injured himself by absorbing, he just doesn’t want Eijun to suffer through pain that was his, he doesn’t want eijun to suffer
