Here’s a photo of the scarification done one week later. The large black patches are scabs of dried blood. I tried to remove them but began to bleed profusely again and decided to keep the scabs right were they developed. Having medical training in first aid and a lot of experience in preventing and arresting infections really helped in this case.
While I don’t regret having the scarification done, it did help me to realize my physical and psychological limits. Due to its size and complexity, it took the scarification artist about three continuous hours of slicing and skin peeling. I could manage the pain of the procedure with out any difficulty. However, the scarification artist as well as myself was a bit concerned about the blood loss. During the scarification process, to manage the pain I was meditating deeply. However, after three hours of cutting and meditating, I started to feel a little tired and sleepy. I was little worried because feelings of fatigue and sleepiness are also associated with severe blood loss. I continued to ask myself, was I feeling sleepy because I was meditating so long, or was the sleepiness due to significant blood loss.
Whatever the ever the case might have been, I am happy to say that I am healing well. There is absolutely no sign of infection! I am also very happy to report that I can definitely feel Lucifer’s influence in my life now. He is incredibly warm and fatherly to me. I am eternally grateful.
