My inner voice said, “Let go, roll with the fall, embrace it the best you can”. I then realized I could not stop the fall. I was going down regardless. The word “surrender” came to me very clearly, so I did. On the next step of the left foot I went down onto the rock road. The palms of my hands hit first. As I felt the sting, I realized if I rolled I would not injure my hands and wrist as much. The bulk of my fall was on my left hip, then left knee, then every body part I have from there, or so it seemed at the time. I was rolling down a hill and rolled about 4 times. Then I stopped. I was in a lot of pain physically, but somehow at peace emotionally.
I tried to get back up, but my left leg still would not work and I fell back down with a hard thud. I did not have a phone on me, so I crawled to the nearest building (in front of me a few feet) and unlocked the door with the keys that were in my pocket. I managed to get over to the phone and call for help.
It turns out I was completely fine. Precaution was taken and ice packs applied, a holistic natural plant based anti-inflammatory taken, and later a hot Epsom and sea salt bath. A few minor scrapes and bruises later I realized I was completely fine and had such a peace about me. I was exhausted and wanted rest, but it was not emotional or mental exhaustion.
The day prior I had an epiphany about an issue I had been working on resolving for a few days having to do with some karmic blockages. My fall was my metaphor for letting go of control of the process. The message was sent to me to surrender and go with the flow and it would not be so bad. A few minor scrapes and bruises are nothing compared to hanging on to the debris that needs to be released. I feel great now and am grateful for the hard lesson.
