Mast Cell 360 Hugs with Our Words Project for people with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and Histamine Intolerance
When I was really sick with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and Histamine Intolerance, I felt alone much of the time.
This was when I started a spiritual practice daily to try to send people “hugs with my eyes”.
I make eye contact and say something pleasant to the people I see throughout my day – the mail carrier, the cashier, people out walking, etc.
My intent is to send compassion and create a brief moment of connection. And maybe brighten someone’s day. I really find this practice nourishing for my soul as well.
It helped me get through those difficult days to show someone some kindness. And I continue this practice today.
But I’ve noticed it’s been much harder this year. Neighbors don’t stop to say hi as much. Delivery people don’t make as much eye contact.
I had a package delivery a couple days ago. I was outside. And the delivery guy walked up my driveway. So, I looked at him and said hi. I was working on my spiritual practice of sending a hug with my eyes.
He stretched his arm out to hand me a small but heavy box. He awkwardly handed it to me while trying to stay as far away as possible.
I know he was doing his best amidst everything we’re dealing with this year.
But because of the awkward reach, I almost dropped the box. I’m still not sure if he was protecting me or was worried for himself – probably both.
It felt kind of empty, though. And a little sad. It wasn’t really a “hug with my eyes” kind of exchange.
It got me thinking, too, about just how it feels in many ways, we’re more disconnected than ever this year.
This got me thinking about you, dealing with your Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or Histamine Intolerance. And on top of it, during THIS crazy, weird year.
So, I thought, how can I help foster more love and connection in this strange, odd year where people feel so disconnected?
I had an idea that we can involve our whole community.
Because our community is more powerful than me alone!
How can we all help brighten the days of others with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and Histamine Intolerance?
We can’t really send hugs with our eyes. But what if we sent hugs with our words?
Here’s how it works…
