Skunked through an open window ~ 2 stories up

I have smelled the scent of skunks wafting in through my open windows at night in our home, every summer for the past 28 years; but last night was the first time the scent was so strong that it made me ill. In the wee hours of the night, I woke in the dark, to my second-story bedroom filled with the acrid smell of skunk spray. My first reaction was a bit panicky as it was so overwhelming. I immediately shut the window and tried to go back to sleep. In retrospect, I should have immediately done more to air out the room through the door and the hallway window. I am not sure if I got back to sleep, but about 45 minutes later, my abdomen started cramping up and I spent the next hour in the bathroom. I knew I was sick from the skunk spray.

I used all the healing tools I could; I did my Inhale Light protocol and breathed out shock and trauma, I inhaled light and exhaled skunk spray remnants, I also opened up an emergency MAP coning to help me deal with the physical and emotional upset, I asked my angels to help me and I did Reiki on my abdomen. I was eventually able to go back to bed and slept for a few more hours.

When I awoke, I was pale, weak and my digestive system felt out of whack. I ate breakfast and then I took homeopathic Arsenicum to help my digestion while I scoured the internet for anyone having had a similar reaction. I found a guys blog from 2008, who spoke of being very ill for a week after getting skunked. At least I now knew I wasn’t crazy. But I was totally unwilling to suffer for more than a few hours, let alone a week. I spent the next 30 minutes reading a few other articles about animals getting skunked and their effects. I noticed one article describing how toxic the sulphuric acid fumes of the skunk spray are to animals. This made me realize that taking homeopathic Sulphur might antidote the sulphuric fumes. I began taking homeopathic Sulphur and I immediately began to feel better. Two hours later, I felt I was almost back to normal. What a crazy way to start the day.

I felt compelled to write this up in case it helps someone down the road. It’s important to realize there are so many healing tools available to counteract such an experience; Reiki, MAP, Inhale Light, Angelic help, homeopathic medicines and many others. It’s also important to remember that skunk fumes are made up of sulphuric acid and that the Homeopathic medicine made from Sulphur may antidote the toxic effects of  these fumes. The crazy synchronicity in all this is that I watched this video before I went to sleep last night.  Skunk mama and babies video
