creative no's and being a clear channel

transformation and clarity
Is this an oxymoron? Is it really possible to say no and still  maintain your relationships?   Why do women tend to  say yes instead of no so often . Why do healers  have so much  difficulty with this issue.
Some of the reasons are:
....we don't want people to dislike us...

The ninth wonder of the world

another wonder
My Uncle Harry, at 94, joined my meditation class at the Martin and Edith Stein Assisted Living facility . I have blogged before about this special class that I am teaching on Wednesdays to the residents. I have been doing this for the past  three months and despite my repeated invitations, Uncle Harry has refused to attend.
Today was different........

First chakra healing and tattoos

Sedona's   majestry
Tattoos are a very big thing these days. It no longer matters   what cohort you are form, everyone is getting tattoos. I have thought about it but I am not a big fan of additional pain. I already have enough pain due  to arthritis and back discomfort. However, temporary tattoos, I am willing to  try. I found these at temporary chakra tattoos. Vicki Howie created them with her son and they are quite beautiful. She is also quite helpful if you have any questions about how to use them.

more on chakras and healing

healing  back pain
It was nice to have some feedback from the last blog about Chakras. I feel that the concept is so misunderstood here in the states. If we don't take yoga classes, then we can't work with the chakras. Not true at all. They are  simply another way of working with our energy system . I did the  chakra test and I was definitely lower in the lowest chakras.

back pain and chakras

rainbow horse
In the past couple of days, I have been dealing with back pain that has kept me moving at a much slower pace. I cannot sit for very long without having significant pain when I stand up. I am aware that low back pain often has to do with lack of grounding and trust in one's own ability to take care of one's own physical needs.

The Groundhog and Ho'opopono Healing

groundhog talks
I had a dream last night that ground hogs know not what they do. They just do it. I don't know whether a ground hog actually said it or I just heard it about them..... Either way, it certainly reminds me to stop  taking  things so  personally.   It is an expression that we hear all of the time and we still take the hurtful actions or words of others  to heart.

food as a healing journey

joy of eating well
I have been on a life long journey  trying to understand the healing power of the food that we eat. . I have  switched my diet around every couple of years. In my twenties, as a self avowed hippie, I first experimented with  growing , cooking  and eating whole foods. I lived in a commune and we took turns preparing meals that were healthy and often delicious. I went on juice detoxes and imbibed many liver flushes( a combination of olive oil, garlic and lemon juice).  As the years passed, I experimented with being  eating vegetarian,  and vegan. In the past couple of years,I have followed a gluten free diet. They all have their merits and  the challenge  of coexisting in this world of confusing messages about a healthy diet.
