nail on head

So my massage yesterday included a reflexology session. She took one look at me and said, "I think I'll do your feet. I think you need it."

After twenty minutes of lying on hot stones, my colour had come back and felt calm and light. God it was magic. Then she analysed me through my feet.
Massage lady: "You're under some serious stress. Your feet have taken major strain."
Me: (with face in mattress) Hmmpf uhuh hmmpf.
Massage lady: "Your liver is suffering, as are your kidneys, and your solar plexus."
Me: "hmmph - what's a solar plexus?"
Massage lady: "The area beneath your heart that carries all your emotions. It's basically fucked."
Me: "Oh dear. That is not good."

So she even put this new machine all over my feet. It was fantastic. I bought some cream from her to balance my solar plexus. It's all about nursing my solar plexus right now. I have solar plexus problems.

To add insult to injury, I think its best I let the German go right now. I won't say 'dump' because it sounds so derogatory. I'm taking him out to dinner tomorrow night to tell him. I think he already senses this, as he was rather tearful on the phone this morning.

Welcome to my Shakepearen tragedy. It's fun being me. It's real fun.

You got sold cream for your solar plexus! You really do need a holiday!

Ha ha Billy - now that you mention it, I'm the marketer's dream! I'm selling out due to my vulnerability! Which has got me you think there is such a thing as a solar plexus?? Because the more I think of it, the more it sounds like fancy jargon for 'total eclipse of the sun.'

God I'm a sucker.

solar plexus, did you try to google it??? it's probably going to be a site that sells cream;)
you recognize that you're not ready for a man in your life right now, that's actually a good sign. just give yourself some time, enjoy your friends and your life.

OK Janie-I Googled it:
It came up 673 732 times. Good Lord.

One yoga site told me it was a chakra, which is supposedly is this:

"The Solar Plexus Chakra is located, as its name suggests, between the navel and heart, at the pericardium (below the breasts at the V of the ribs). it's name means "Seat of the Soul", or solar network.
Human Challenge and Gift - to transmute the energy of the emotions into soulful passion for life i.e. fear into love, anger into action, sadness into surrender and bliss
Soul Desire - to experience the depth of emotions and transmute them into passion and devotion. To activate our soul.
Primal Relationship - with our soul and emotional body.

So, if that's all true: I am indeed a mess.

It'll all be jig saw for a while yet, I'm afraid to say, but you'll figure it out and everything will be simple.

Chris - jig saw it is! My ex is giving me serious strop and quite frankly I hate him today.
And life is pretty topsy turvey. Ah, but as long as I have a healthy solar plexus... :)
