You are right, it takes time. I like your thought about the angels, as I have the tendency to do everything at once, which does not seem to work in the long run. I think I often overwhelm my angels : )
It is worth it, right? It feels good to evolve beyond needing any chemical to feel better.
I have been doing more juicing, and at the suggestion of a friend, took some Nux Vomica homeopathic remedy, which took away all headaches immediately. I mean, I had a headache every afternoon like clockwork, and they are gone.
So that's where I am now. Thanks so much for the great suggestions.
