What Migraines Can Tell You
An excerpt from the book: Soul-Side Out Universal Laws to Healing and Living Your Best Life
Wake-up calls come in all sorts of forms, one form is migraine headaches. Migraines, are specific and local to a particular immediate life situation or stress. They are painful and as a result, full of opportunity for expanded awareness.
For example, I was at a health conference and a colleague came to me asking what I did for migraines. She was experiencing the onset of one and asked for my assistance. I explained some physical aids such as peppermint oil and lavender, but told her it was most important to explore an emotional reason behind the onset of the headache.
Being a hypnotherapist, she felt quite confident in her abilities to recognize her unconscious triggers, so we explored the physical energy to guide us there. I asked her to tell me the specific physical symptoms of the migraine. She explained the visual auras and the beginnings of nausea and that with this particular migraine, she felt it in her back.
Experiencing part of the migraine in her back was not a usual symptom, so I suggested we focus there. We could have explored the energy she felt in her back through the process of IN-OWT, but being in the middle of a conference hall, I went with my intuition and years of experience* that told me it may have to do with having a backbone and standing up for herself. As soon as I mentioned what I sensed the meaning of her back pain was, tears began to roll down her face. “AHA!” I said. “I think we have just found the unconscious trigger for your migraine.” She went on to tell me that she had just been in the conference hall and overheard someone speaking about her knowledge and information without crediting her for it and she had not said anything despite feeling a sense of betrayal. I suggested that she go lay outside on the earth, close her eyes and integrate this knowledge and decide what she wanted to do about it.
Twenty minutes later, she returned to let me know her migraine had subsided. She felt back to normal and could resume her work at her booth.
I have also used the INside-OWT process and the Emergency Migraine Kit Information with my 11 year old daughter with much the same success.
The simplest way to understand this Universal Process of Mind-Body Communication during a Migraine is through the natural 5-step process of INside-OWT

Some facts about Migraines
Migraine attacks commonly activate the sympathetic nervous system in the body. The sympathetic nervous system is often thought of as the part of the nervous system that controls primitive responses to stress and pain, the so-called "fight or flight" response. The increased sympathetic nervous activity in the intestine causes nausea, and vomiting. Sympathetic activity also delays emptying of the stomach into the small intestine and thereby prevents oral medications from entering the intestine and being absorbed. The impaired absorption of oral medications is a common reason for the ineffectiveness of medications taken to treat migraine headaches. The increased sympathetic activity also decreases the circulation of blood, and this leads to pallor of the skin as well as cold hands and feet. The increased sympathetic activity also contributes to the sensitivity to light and sound sensitivity as well as blurred vision.
Migraine attacks may be triggered by:
Although all of these are 'triggers', it is usually unconscious emotional stress that pulls the trigger!
- *Physical or Emotional stress
- Tension Headaches and/or prescription glasses
- Barametric Pressure Changes.
- Menstrual cycle fluctuations,
- Smoking or exposure to smoke, alcohol
- Lack of sleep or changes in sleep patterns
- Bright lights, prolonged computer use, loud noises, odors or perfumes
- Poor diet, skipping meals – lack of protein
- Foods containing tyramine (red wine, aged cheese, smoked fish, chicken livers, figs,
and some beans), monosodium glutamate (MSG), or nitrates (like bacon, hot dogs,
Other foods such as chocolate, nuts, peanut butter, avocado, banana, citrus, onions,
dairy products, and fermented or pickled foods
- birth control pills if your migraines occur every month, they could be a key factor.
