Well, the yetzer found a way to put a spoke in the wheel.
A little while ago, my daughter started having some stroppy fit about something, and was getting a bit hysterical. My husband thought that would be a GREAT opportunity to try and 'hold her points', just like he'd been watching me doing.
She wasn't keen on the idea (she was in the middle of a big pre-teenage emotional outburst; you know how that is) - so my husband started chasing her round the room, caught her, then started to forcibly 'hold her points'.
(I know this sounds like child-abuse, but I promise it really wasn't.)
He did it very gently and compassionately, and was really just trying to help her. There was just one problem: my husband is a man.
Sometimes, they are just sooooooo dumb (no offence intended to any male readers other than my husband.)
Triple Warmer deals with the 'fight or flight' response that gets irrationally switched on too much of the time, and usually, it works a treat.
But when you're chasing someone down and they are running away (= flight), and then half-wrestling them into a sitting position so you can hold their points against their will (= fight), Triple Warmer is actually reacting appropriately for once.
Now, when I try to hold my daughter's Triple Warmer sedating points, she immediately gets a headache, as Triple Warmer shoots up to super-high-alert.
I'm trying to find the way around this (it has to exist…), but in the meantime, he's stuffed up my best trick for calming her down and restoring peace.
I know it's all from G-d (that took some real work to remember), and that it's ultimately good.
I know really, G-d arranged this to happen to show me I'm not in control, and even sedating Triple Warmer isn't going to work unless I've prayed on it and put G-d in the picture.
So it's a blessing in disguise. And sometimes, so is my husband.
