The ancient Celts believed gods and goddesses lived in specific locations, and Sulis lived in the thermal waters and mineral springs of Bath, England. People would come from as far away as Rome to partake of Sulis's healing waters. So, Barbara, we need to Sulis you up, and all that really means is that we have to get you good and relaxed both before and after your surgery.
Here's what I'm thinking.
Before the surgery: hot bath, soft music, maybe a little aromatherapy--easy enough if you can get someone to bake you cookies, in your kitchen, while you are in the bath. But here is the important part, the cookie maker must leave your kitchen CLEANER than they found it. Otherwise, it's not even worth it. Now, after the bath, you bundle up in a fluffy robe and you watch Pride and Prejudice (the one starring my secret boyfriend Colin Firth). Watch all six hours. Also, eat cookies.
After the surgery: When the doctor gives you the go ahead, lie down on the couch and watch Pride and Prejudice (again, but this time pay special attention to Colin coming out of pond). Watch all six hours. Also, and here is where you are going to mix it up, eat cake. Also, maybe, rice pudding, but that one is up to you.
Channel Sulis: When needing healing energy, when you are not feeling yourself, when you just need to relax, when you need someone to clean your kitchen or feed you sugar.
Need a goddess? I got goddesses! Post a comment explaining what you need or want a goddess for. Then check back in a few weeks and see what you got. Actually, I got two in the queue, so it might take longer, but if you don't ask now you might forget, and you don't want to do that.
