It’s the pits, for sure. Yet your underarms are great indicators that your body wants some change.
It started with one person reporting this to me, and then another, and another. But until I felt it myself, I couldn’t attribute this physical symptom to the awakening process.
One day, you may wake up and whatever you put on your armpits seems to burn and itch as if you rubbed hydrochloric acid under there. Of course, you didn’t, but it can sure feel like that when you aren’t used to experiencing anything odd during your morning routine.
For me, it was an overnight thing: one day, everything was fine. Then the next day, I used my regular natural deodorant, and it felt very different. Besides the irritation that made me feel like a puppy annoyed by an itch he can barely reach, my underarms felt angry! Irritated, annoyed, stomping their figurative feet on the ground as if to say, “No more of this.”
Before I let you know the answer I received when I asked the Universe for the reasoning behind this newest unwelcome symptom, I want to recommend that you do your own research regarding aluminum in your anti-perspirant. If you are still using an anti-perspirant at all (which requires aluminum to stop you from sweating), then you may want to reconsider that. There are many scientific, as well as metaphysical, resources on what aluminum does to the body. Please look into these and adopt the practice that resonates with you.
I have not used anti-perspirant for nearly a decade, so the symptoms described above apply to even those pits who are not being infused with aluminum daily.
OK, so why? WHY? Why can’t just one part of the body not be affected by awakening symptoms? It’s a rhetorical question, by the way. Just assume that every part of your body will be affected in some way, shape or form, as you awaken.
As for underarms, their main purpose is twofold: to regulate body temperature, and to release toxins.
Chances are, if your pits suddenly have become inflamed, itchy and annoying (!) you have not been eating all that well, and your body is doing its best to detox itself. So anything you add to the toxins you are sweating out will react with them and attempt to get your attention by nearly driving you to insanity.
My suggestion? Consider what you are eating–did you go on a vacation and eat foods outside of your normal, healthy diet? Alcohol beyond its normal quantity? Junk food? Yeah.
The fastest way to freedom is of course, to let your pits heal. Avoid the deodorant if possible, for a few days. And pay attention to the inside of you, and what you’re dumping down your mouth.
If you are one to consider a detox, here is one that I have used very successfully to clear the body of toxins:
(I have no affiliation with this provider, so feel free to find a suitable one for you if this one doesn’t call your name). I found that the 10-day cleanse was perfect to reset the balance in my body.
Aim to stay as natural as possible, without chemicals you can’t pronounce, and by all means if you feel guided to see a doctor, please do so. A lot of the potency of a cleanse includes regulating what you put in your body while you are cleansing.
Hope this helps those of you experiencing this new and annoying symptom.
