How Am I Doing? Part 1

Hello dear litebeings,
I realize I have been rarely blogging these past few months. I feel very depressed and may need to find a new home and a new job to pay for it. I feel like every time I try to make a move in any direction, it gets derailed or sabotaged. I don’t even feel like blogging now, which is not really like me. The song in this re-blog came to mind today as a strong representation of my situation. Then I remembered that I already used it here. Back then I was confused and overwhelmed by some spiritual, philosophical ideas about existence.  Currently I feel sad and powerless over 3D human life. My depression is not clinical, mostly situational and I pray that it will lift soon. It all ties back to losing that glove in the post Glove Story . I have not been myself ( whatever that is ) since.

Please keep me in your prayers. When I am ready, I will be back with new material. I am committed to my writing, which often is my saving grace. I love all of you in my WP family, but I do not have the energy to write. Rather than comment, I prefer you email me if you want to reach out. blessings, Linda

I realize that most of my recent posts have been about art or reblogs ( of my work or fellow bloggers). With the exception of the March Madness post, I have been rather quiet.

I have really been struggling. So much so, that while the blog ideas arrive fast and furious, my ability to digest and integrate the material has been compromised. So I have decided to write smallish posts for now.  My goal is to share my story in manageable, bite size nuggets until I am able to produce more lengthy material.

I do want to thank those who have prayed for me, sent me love, good vibes, light, etc. Please keep it coming. Some of it must have reached me because my physical health has shown some improvement. The symptoms are less harsh and less frequent. Thank you.

Music has always offered me solace. I cannot recall a…

2017: Every New Beginning Comes From Some Other Beginning’s End

Here is a post that describes the spirit of renewal and moving forward. It definitely speaks to the promise of Easter and highlights my journey of April 2016, so it hits all the “retro” notes!

Life is always in flux. While some forms are fading, others are blooming. The trick is to recognize which direction you are moving in and when to let go.

It is humbling to be nearing my fourth year of blogging and to be able to compose some thoughts about the year ahead and the year I lived through. The more I slow down, the easier it is for me to notice that existence has no clear demarcations. Astrologers love cycles and make mention of the significant planetary movements via stations, transits, and progressions. And yet, because of our cosmic fluency, we are perhaps more likely than most to acknowledge the fragility and malleability of time. Time and music marry well together and led me to use Closing Time in this post title.

To understand where I am today, it is necessary to return to April 2016. At the New…

Returning Home Part VII: – Art Therapy at Philadelphia Museum of Art

photo1275

This is the next installment in the Returning Home series where I shine a light on places that accelerate my transcendance and assist in restoring my inner peace. Given the recent news of the Trump upset presidential victory, I go to my love of art as a way to get back to my “happy place”.

I visited the Phila Museum of Art ( aka the Art Museum) for my birthday. I have been there numerous times over the years and it is a gorgeous building that houses extraordinary art. I have not considered it to be one of my “power places” per se, but I have found my visits to be inspiring, soothing, and occasionally transformative.

The current draw is  Paint the Revolution, the Mexican modernism exhibit which features the works of Rivera, Kahlo, and others. While I did enjoy this presentation, I was totally enthralled with the redesign of the South Asian galleries. They did a bang up job of re-envisioning a treasure trove of architecture, jewelry, artifacts, and much, much, more. I was able to take a few shots with my cellphone, which apparently is ” a thing”. I had no idea visitors were allowed to do this.

 Please enjoy:

While South American and South Asian cultures have little in common, I relished their contrasts and the emotional resonances that were provoked within. I semi-randomly assembled a mix of both collections to display here, including a gorgeous mandala as the header image.  An unexpected delight was this partially hidden Sufi manuscript exhibit that was converted to an animation piece. Entitled Disruption as Rapture, within about five minutes my higher self was dissolving into the ethers. It has been quite some time since I experienced a dissolution of self. Pretty cool. With a name like Disruption as Rapture, this “performance art” certainly depicts how one can thrive during these uncertain times.

Natural Medicine Healing and Wellness Summit

As is often the case, I am alerted by some unknown source to an excellent, free online series that as the Quakers say “speaks to my condition.” This happened  about a week or so ago. I signed up for the Natural Medicine Healing and Wellness summit, led by Dr. Murray. I only viewed a couple of videos and was not sure I would learn anything new or relevant. Then I watched Sayer Ji’s video on Breakthroughs in Natural Medicine. It blew my mind and shook me to my core regarding the differences between ” Modern” and ” Natural ” healing practices. The video was linked to a free E course on  Food Wisdom. This was also excellent and reinforced some theories I have had about the wisdom of plants and Gaia in general.

Yesterday I was determined to blog about this, but the Summit was over. I am usually on top of these things, but again, was not certain there was anything to recommend. Well, today they announced a free replay of the 3 most popular videos, including the talk given by Sayer Ji. It was crystal clear to me that now is the time to blog about this series. You do have to pay to access the material, since the summit is officially over. But it is truly worth it if you have severe and/or chronic health issues that are not responding to traditional interventions. Or if you want to expand your knowledge about the latest research on what we like to call alternative medicine.

Here is a small sampling of what I learned:

No one has been able to create a drug with curcumin that is superior to turmeric in its natural state.

Food is coded ( protein chaperones) so the nutrients know where to go in the body.

Flowers are natural mood elevators.

Chocolate ( dark variety) functions like manufactured statin drugs without the side effects.

 

I wish I had mentioned this earlier, but am hoping it reaches the people who will benefit. I cannot recommend the Sayer Ji material highly enough! He is the founder of greenmedinfo.com, which is  a treasure trove of information. If you are passionate about the magic of spices such as ginger and turmeric, you will love learning more about the latest findings of food as catalysts towards wellness and vitality.

Here is the link to the summit, where you can decide how to proceed. As some of my readers know, I am seeking new ways to address my health. While I am new to this quest, it is exciting how this information, yet again, fell into my lap. The same thing happened with the Shades of Awakening summit. With my Gemini Moon in the disseminating phase, I am  spiritually”contractually obligated” to pass on helpful information. It is in my DNA, pun intended. If you view Ji’s video, you will get the joke! Please take a look if you or someone you love needs to modify your lifestyle or wants to embark on a new relationship with your physical body.

A Healing Wave

Saros120

Ever feel like you are spinning out of control? Well, I have felt this way for about a week or so. This morning was different though. This eclipse energy seems ( so far ) to be agreeing with me. Could be that the lunation is squaring my moon/Venus opposition. With the sun, moon, and/or Venus, I find squares and oppositions to be typically pleasant. The grand water trine that this 19 degrees Pisces new moon in my 1st house makes to my natal mars in Cancer in the 6th house and Scorpio stellium in the 9th house is probably more likely to be the reason. Nothing says renewal and rebirth like a lovely grand water trine supported by my Pluto and north node in Virgo.

I have been fixated on my 6th house journey as more yucky test results keep flooding in. I am not giving up though. I clearly see that I must make some dramatic changes that I have been masterful at avoiding. Meeting yesterday with health coach Dana Barron was very reassuring. She met with me for free and spent about 90 minutes listening , empathizing, explaining complex systems, and making clear recommendations. If you or someone you know needs help navigating the alternative healthcare process and live in SE Pennsylvania, please check her out. I left her office feeling cared for and respected, armed with handouts and resources.

Here is the website where you can find Dana. http://theresiliencycenter.com/

This morning I was led to pull a card from my Healing cards deck:

CCF20150122_00000

I could not have chosen a more perfect card. Good old number 22 contains the following message on the back:

Memories are clever impostors, making it appear that an experience or relationship cannot be healed. If you believe that, how can you heal your body or protect your health?

The booklet further indicates that since both the soul and the body are perfect, the body has the power to heal itself and get out of its way. It suggests to stop confusing the body with medicine and food additives and allow it to work naturally.

As I continue on my quest for wellness, I will take comfort in this card, along with the 6th house/ 12th house energies accentuated by this solar eclipse flanked by Chiron, Neptune, and the south node in Pisces opposing Jupiter and north node in Virgo. Please send me light and love as I continue to ride the waves towards wholeness.
