I’ve been sick lately, a weird kind of flu where my temperature has gone below the usual temp. It’s not a fever, but the result is I still feel sick. Never being a person to turn aside opportunity, I’ve been working on a technique to deal with illness that I’ve been using for a little while now. It’s worked to actually stop a fever in the past from developing, and in this case has been used to mitigate the current sickness and speed up the healing.
The technique is based off a video game called Microbots. In that game you are a microbot sent into a body to heal it by getting rid of the virus that is in the body. The developers of the game created a stunning environment that looks like the biology of the body. Useful for visualization purposes if you’re doing work to contact neurotransmitters, but also useful if you want to combat a fever or flu, especially if you want to use the microbot for that purpose.
When I feel sickness coming on, or in this latest case, when I’m in the midst of experiencing it, I’ll meditate before resting and create a health servitor that will go in and start combating the sickness, while also offering support to the natural systems already in place. My microbot servitor is equipped to not just fight the sickness, but also comes with healing tools that can be used to heal the body, where needed.
I like drawing on pop culture for inspiration, and the microbot game has proven to be the perfect inspiration for this work, because its provided a model of internal work I can use with my body. It demonstrates the importance of drawing on such inspirations for your magical work. I can’t say I’ve found anything else that provides such a useful tool for health and healing work. I’m going to continue experimenting with it, and will be sure to share details either here, or in Neuro-Space/Time Magic.
