RAINBOW FAMILY GATHERINGS: Unofficial Community for Rainbow Family
I was wondering what sort of pillow to bring that's light weight. I had a car accident a few years ago and I have trouble with my neck and upper back. I have a pillow that corrects my necks natural alignment at home but don't want to bring it. Its large. I was just wondering what kind of tips people have when camping with chronic pain? Any advice would be awesome. Thanks all_Peace & Blessings_Kelly
Camping at Rainbow can be so good for healing old pains . But , I guess I've acquired one or two new ones there and then had to heal up at the next one .
A pillow ! I like to begin with a broad and smooth flat rock , then atop that place a bag stuffed with the sweater I'd been wearing for the cool of the evening , then atop that .... brains and ears . Probbly you don't have to carry the rock from anywhere far , maybe even to just sleep where the perfect rock has sit for a thousand years .
I hope to come in July for my spiritual Journey. It's my neck is unstable. I try to eat herbs and do yoga for it. I just want my headaches not to interfere with my trip to the gathering. :)
Aww , you don't have to bring much stuff to a gathering - just whatever is comfortable to carry . How about a snake ?
How are you new to the wild ? Oh , well , no going back now .
TBH if your neck is unstable you might go in for physical therapy to strengthen the muscles around the area. Glucosamine sulfate and gelatin are also supplements that can't do much harm unless you're allergic to shellfish, since these things may help the body regenerate collagen and connective tissue. CBD oil, 1 tbsp diluted in 1 c. lotion or oil, might make a decent topical treatment as well to temporarily relieve pain. Personally I'd use reiki as well, such as the kind taught by Marsha Burack in her Reiki book (doesn't require an "attunement"). For your upper back you might try Callanetics, but some of the neck exercises in that book are probably not a good idea so you'd have to proceed with caution. As for a camping pillow, I've uh, always just used a regular one...
