Learn About Your Water
Before I left for Colorado, my daughter brought Kangen Water to me. She was full of enthusiasm that we needed to get on board with good water. At first I was uninterested as I was moving. Research and investigating was not in the timetable. She was insistent. As I was getting things packed up, the idea of water kept rolling through my head. Facts like we are 73% or more water, all processes need water, dehydration the cause of so many illnesses, after healing treatments they encourage you to drink water the rest of the day to detox what occurred.
The more this rolled in my head, the more I thought, why haven't I given much thought to water. I drink a lot of it but do I know if it is good water? Just because it is from a well does that mean it is good? What about all the pesticides put on lawns and dumped in the water table? Don't they effect the water? In a bind I get bottles of water. At the beach we drink so much bottled water for the water there is chlorinated. Bottled water is in plastic and that is permeable. I learned that years ago. As water bottles travel, they can pick up things through the plastic walls. I also have heard if your water bottle is in the car in the sun and heat, it spoils it. Was it any good in the first place? Do we really know anything about our bottled water? So many unhealthy facts of the water we use was running in my mind. It is costly too and getting more so. Now we are even buying it in glass which is cool, but is the water any better? All this about the most important element of life.
I had never really investigated it further. I guess I didn't know what kind of solutions there was so why think about it? Then I began to watch videos from Doctors, Chiropractors, Nobel Prize winners about water and the importance of ionized water. There are no studies that are not positive. Doctors. spoke of how a simple solutions of water could change so many conditions that we have no remedy for in allopathic medicine. It made sense on one level and then on another was it really that simple? After fully submerging into it, I realized this is very important to health. I could take all the elixirs, supplements, tinctures, but if I was not hydrated properly, they wouldn't really get into the cells for water is the base of it all.
I bought the kangen water machine for my sink, a shower unit and some organic tumeric package available as part of the program. I used it as I continued to pack up and wonder in this crisis if I would be able to move. It was stressful and still is in the larger world so I am glad I got the water. I have felt the difference and detox of having the right water. There are many machines out there and I went for the most researched, Kangen. It offered much more than drinking water and has been around 40 years. There is tons of literature out there on using the water on physical ails written by Doctors.. Ways to disinfectant and clean with hydrocaulic water the machine creates that is used in hospitals. There is alkalized water for laundry and any greasy job. Beauty water that is the same ph as our skin so it supports it on the outside as well as inside. Just so much to learn and participate in this sustainable machine.
I considered how much I spend on water. How much I spend on cleaners, beauty products, containers and containers of plastic we use and thought this is a deal over the long run. Just water can do all that? Yes it can and has been for quite a while. I know that if your body doesn't recognize something that comes in, it will store it in fat to manage later. The body wants things of the earth for it is made of those things and knows how to use them. Many things in all our products are chemicals our body doesn't recognize. It clogs it and doesn't flush it. What if you use the best water to support you innate health system to clear and clean? It just all made sense. Not to mention that inside, my intuition kept saying "get into water, it is so important". I heard that the whole time yet, I had to satisfy my mind with research and research. Funny how that goes.
In doing our podcast, The Magical Holistic Healing Arts, we talked with Intuitive Healer, Zach Reider in Arizona. He told us there are water stores there where you can get gallons of water. Kangen, reverse osmosis, etcc. I was amazed. But perhpas that is what will happen at some point for the water we purchase is dangerous when you look into it.
Be informed. Learn about hydration and how that works. It is the leading cause of disease, acidosis, too acidic a body. You can use food. Water is easier and quicker to balance this issue. It is not just the alkaline water either. It is the ionized effect that breaks up the water molecules so they can get into your cells. Water likes to cluster in groups of molecules like grapes. It can not get into the cells that way. The electric effect splits the molecules. That creates extra electrons and they go in and scavenge free radicals. It is win win on many levels. You can go on pub med and find out about ionized, alkalized, octagonal, microclusterd water. It is the best there is.
Imagine if your health could improve tremendously with just one elixir. Imagine that all your other medications, supplements, tinctures worked better and perhaps you needed less of them. Imagine if you don't have to be concerned about water anymore. In this next leg, it will become far more important. This makes up the majority of our body. Imagine getting that functioning right, ails could disappear? Huge realization for me and I am happy to be learning all about it. I am a healer. I always seek ways to be healthy and curiously investigate. This one is the heaviest hitter I have discovered. Get informed. Find safer water.
The Kangen Slogan is , Change your water, Change your life! That is pretty powerful concept! Let me know if you want more info. My site has endless videos and a pdf of the medical community who backs it and why. Many links to learn. I would love to support your shift in health through the simplicity of the water!
We certainly don't celebrate ourselves and all we do enough. As we have been lock down for over a month, take a moment and consider all that you have done. What have you completed that you had hanging around to manage? How have you used your time to investigate nature? To breathe deep? To rest and catch up on the things that settle you? Have you reconnected with others that you haven't had time to chat? What are the juicy things you have gotten done? Relax? Facials? Innovations? Any creativity that has occurred?
We can focus on what has not happened and spent time wondering when things will change. However, I inspire you to really take inventory of the things complete. It is so powerful to look at life in new ways especially with this crazy time. How have you managed such an usual time? Where can you celebrate yourself for adaptability, innovation and creativity? Take a moment to feel proud of yourself for the good that has come during this time. Did you learn new technology or take a class that inspires you to develop yourself? So many things to celebrate for our flexibility to manage!
I know for myself I am really settling into all I have done. I moved. I created an online podcast and you tube to share inspiring perspectives on health and healing. I am learning a new state and town. I had to regroup from the original space I was to move. I have met people on line I never would of had a moment to connect with if we had not moved forward with our show. I have studied the Gene Keys deeper. I have been more focused on my homeopathy art. I have learned so much about water, my kangen machine and how to be more sustainable using it for cleaning, laundry, beauty care and hydration. I have relaxed. I have rested. I have been to beautiful nature places and pushed my physical limits to climb high. So many things I could celebrate how I have moved forward while being in a new home.
This is a powerful exercise to really look at what has been accomplished. It is different than the usual things and for that we should be proud. We have used this opportunity to expand and connect in new ways. This is good stuff. Perhaps you just tapped deeper into yourself? Created a new pathways to health? Money? New hobbies? Given ourselves time to feel calm and integrate. Maybe you have cooked more meals with love and care? All these are great accomplishments. They heal our souls and inspire new ways forward. Just enjoying the downtime is healthful.
I hope you give yourself a moment of celebration. Really revel in it. Savor your savvy! Give yourself a hug or pat on the back for managing such a time in creative ways. Perhaps you learned something really juicy about yourself? These are hallmarks of greatness and deserve celebration! Spend the whole day thinking of all the wonder you are and have created!! This is self care. This is self cure! These things bring in security in you. Secure in the wonder you are! Oh do celebrate!! It is good!

I am really engaging in quietness at this time. I normally am one of fire, of action, of interaction and activity. At first, I felt my mind and emotions wanting to move, to do something. As I watched and let that energy go, the beliefs and accomplishment mentality of not being anything if we are not doing, move on for we can't do, I find a quiet. A stillness. At moments I can feel bored but underneath that is a peaceful still that I am embracing.
It is like being in a cocoon of sorts. Like the butterfly that actually shifts magically while in that cocoon. I am sure they know not what is occurring or what to make of it when in it. I too, kind of wondering what will be after this time of rest. I feel my feelings, many of which are sadness and tears but I am not connected to them. I have no reason to feel sad yet tears pour forth in moments. At other times, giggling and magic is about with the sweet garden where I am awaiting my home to be ready. I often wonder what to be doing in a new town, new state. The answer always......nothing but be still. I am learning to honor this still place that we don't meet often. It is rich with emptiness that feels restorative. It is nothing I have been through before.
I sit outside and absorb the bird sounds, see the tulips bloom and the wind wisp things around. I am almost catatonic watching in awe and grace. I have no inspiration to move anywhere or do much of anything. I wonder what this is? Should I be doing something or is the rest the doing? It is a curious space. I am with no farm to tend, no place to be, no projects to do, only writing and being. Just being. How weird it is to sit and sit. When thoughts come in that want to chastise me for this, I let them go. I feel an alchemy is occurring inside. Not sure what it is but I am being present with what my being wants to do. Which is not much of anything.
So odd this place we are in. I know not Lyn as inactive. I know her as adventure, chatter, writing, playing and doing. I find a piece of myself that enjoys the still, quiet, nothing place. I watch the urges to be active calling me forward. I just watch. I don't move. It is a different experience. I even wonder if I am being lazy but then I know I am not. I am just awaiting the inspired action that urges me that I must move or I will burst. I am watching the patterns of action that we all do just because we have been taught. I am wanting that deep action, that inspiration. Awaiting Brigid the Celtic Goddess of spring that lights us up truly to show up. She is deep passion that must be expressed. I am not finding her as yet.
So I sit and explore this empty space. I felt this at Thanksgiving during my illness. That I would not move until I was so drawn toward something. The thing that inspired me was to be in a greenhouse with new growing plants. Then the desire to move out west drew me. Now I am here in a quietness again. Very fascinating to allow my inwardness to lead me. Not my thoughts or emotions but my inward spirit. It is a new way for me. I am finding peace with it. I am slowing down my rhythm to a halt like the world. It seems to be even slower than that at this moment! Then I giggle at that. I am not inspired to do anything but be.
If you too feel this quiet, this empty space that holds "nothing", I inspire you to wait it out. I believe there is an inward moving that we can not yet make sense of or notice. I think it is a powerful shift occurring within. I don't know of what or how it will show up in the outer world. I do know that it is restorative, peaceful and still. I am finding my way with it although it is not so familiar to me. I find it good practice to just watch and be with it. It is like a pause or a story line that is playing out. We don't see what it's significance is until later. I settle into that 20/20 hindsight knowing, allowing this quiet to be.
I send blessings to you all as we surf this most unusual place. As odd as it is, it also offers a richness of rest, relax and breath that I have not felt since I was on my farm with my flowers. As an explorer of things, I am open to this as I would any outside thing. It is good for me. I have been wound so tight for years in panic, anxiety and confusion underneath me. I am watching them unwind to a nice stillness and love underneath that fills. Very different space. I hope you are finding it too. For the rest here is good as I feel once this is over, fast going will be the energy.

As we continue in this social distancing situation, I have found myself in moments of sadness. I am not sure why this emotion rolls in, often triggered perhaps by others stories, strife and challenge. As an empath, the larger field can effect you in the strangest of ways. We can feel this larger emotional field for we are all connected. All of us have the ability of empathy. The more you are connected to your emotional nature, noticing and allowing it's ways, the easier it is to feel others emotions. Some of us are to learn this feeling of others while some of us are to learn to discern our feeling from others.
This gift is so powerful for it supports us to know what others feel without them telling us. It is a high form of compassion. We are sensitive to others as a gift of connection. Many do not realize they are empathic. It can cause us problems when we are unaware that it is others feelings mixing with our own. Being sensitive can be a gift or an energy drain depending how we understand it. It is often why you start in a good mood, move toward one in a low mood and end up leaving the interaction with low energy or the sadness, confusion, dismay they have. We are all connected on the energetic level. If you are sensitive, learning how this works can support you on many levels emotionally.
I have found myself suddenly getting this urge to cry. Learning what to do with this time as we are held inside, I find in the spaces in between, I will suddenly feel very sad. I am allowing of my emotions knowing acknowledging them, feeling them to wash over without a story or mental activity, they leave almost as quickly as they come. It could be my own sadness inside incited by another's or my connection to the world feeling the sadness and fear all about. It doesn't really matter where it comes from or why. Very important things to learn about our emotional nature. It is a guidance system so it can be moved through very quickly and easily when you don't avoid its direction.
Energy waves around. You pick up on the larger field. Sadness and fear are all around us. There needs to be no judgment on it. It is rather best to feel what is passing through like a wave, process it and let it go. Often easier said then done but the gift that empaths offer the world. They will feel the field unless they use drugs or other elixirs to numb or escape. Feelings are part of their gift to ride and understand energy. So as we feel for ourselves or others, we clear the field of fear, sadness, confusion. It is good to process these feelings so they are not in you or the world any longer.
We have been taught to suppress our feeling nature and at a time like this, when our routine is not the same, these feelings get an opportunity to express in us. It is a good practice to go through them. Let them go. Whether they are yours or another's is not as important as FEELING the richness of life. You can't feel high joy if you don't process your lows. The energy it takes to suppress your feelings is not available for life. I am finding all kinds of hidden nooks within myself and just letting them be what they are. They pass so quickly when we just feel them. No worries to shift, judge or push away. They just leave in a moment. Tears especially washing. We all have more sadness and grief within us for the smallest of things. It is good to take the moment to feel and clear. The world feels more vibrant and bright when we clear the windows so to speak.
I am blessed with our show, The Magical Holistic Healing Arts where we interview different healers. It has offered us great wisdom and I am sure it will inspire you. To see the positive potential in this slow down. To live with uncertainty without all the judgement. To see the world and ourselves in a clearer manner that only slowing down can afford us. And yes, feeling our emotions that we may of been to busy to give a moment has its cleansing and healing. Shifting our timeline, opening ourselves to more presence of what is here and seeing, feeling and digesting it over judging, ruminating or feeling stuck in it. Once you feel it, let it be, it moves so quickly. You wonder why we never learned this way of processing.
As our thoughts can run a pattern, so can our emotions. Woman are generally considered the masters of this emotional field. You will find them in all corners of the earth supporting and facing such emotional turmoil. It is part of our nourishing, divine nature. We are the ones holding the hands of the sick, comforting others in challenging times and walking into places no one chooses. Man can as well but it is natural to woman by our biology of life giving beings. As we understand and feel out the emotions not in hurting ourselves, but bearing witness that is so natural, we support a more balanced world of mind and emotion equal and used in unison. Often called the path of the heart.
This is the perfect time to clean out and feel the clarity. . It is natural for us to be afraid and sad at a moment when the world is in hold. But if you recognize these as emotions to be felt and released, you find yourself coming to a center of peace. We will survive whatever this is. We always have survived and often see the beauty of a challenge years later. In knowing this, perhaps remembering this is the case, we can consciously go through this seeking that silver lining for ourselves. It becomes a journey through our layers of self that can ultimately free us of this sad, fearful part of ourselves and world.
I inspire you to really take the time to feel the crap. It doesn't last long and it is often a fear of worry or projected future. We don't know how this will play out and as a species, we have survived many things. To be in this slow motion of life, we do have the opportunity to really tap into ourselves and allow, accept and cooperate with our feelings. They can't hurt us by feeling them. They create havoc when we don't. They pass quickly and then as one of our interviewers said, love lies at that bottom of it all. So once we feel these feelings through, love bubbles up inside at the end. What a glorious ending to what seems unbearable.
God bless you all as you journey through this uncertain time. If we all do our inner work, we can shift our world to find greater grace and live deeper values. I am enjoying the roller coaster of awareness of me. It is an adventure and a mystery. Moment by moment we are finding our way and this gives us an opportunity to see what living this way feels like. It is magical in some moments and deeply moving at others. All of it part of this process here.
It is not more spiritual to be happy all the time. To live in accordance with spirit is to be aware of all the emotions, thoughts and body without getting so disturbed by it knowing this too shall pass. Then all becomes a celebration of life as it is. Cooperation can be our choice and from there, enthusiasm comes in which is the movement of grace. In theos, in spirit, in celebration.
Honoring it all as states of being alive! Blessing to you all!

Readjusting to the Rhythm of Life
My newest insight invites reflection on the rhythm of life. My body, the interaction, speed of events has slowed down and my physicality experiences this new pace as rewarding. However, my mind and emotions want to be in the pattern of before. Our goals, activities, the normal life issues have completely shifted. A reorder is occurring. I find that I am observing the desire for the old pace or life comes through in my emotions and mind. My body enjoying moving slower and in a pleasant rhythm.
I am intrigued by the Gene Keys and support others to learn of themselves through them. Richard Rudd speaks beautifully of our radiance, our sparkle of self in our body as a function of slowing down. Suggesting that when we are more in sync with the Shumann Resonance of the earth, then our radiance can really share its gifts and exist wholly. I love the word radiance. I love the idea of our aura of uniqueness radiating out and influencing the world. For it to fully glow, we must be in a slower rhythm synchronized with the world, the nature around us. So many of our intuitive gifts won't really become strong if we are out of sync with the larger, natural rhythm.
I notice how moving slower, in more intention is giving me a greater sense of presence and being in my body in a healthy way. I feel health, healing, rest, more meandering is supporting my vitality and happiness. It makes sense that our physical body (body deva as I call it), in moving rhythmically with the outer nature, would feel more connected and relaxed. We are made of nature and move and flow as she does. Slower works for that aspect of us that is connected to the whole of nature. The idea to be my greatest radiance, glow and vitality couldn't occur if I am moving too fast or not even noticing the rhythm of nature. It hit me as a huge realization. Yea..... this is what I am learning.
To have less to do, places to go, interaction with the world has been far more challenging with my emotional and mental nature. I have enjoyed observing the desire to accomplish and move in directions that will not make a difference at this time. It is interesting coming upon myself and my ideas about productivity as we go through the virus crisis. I am finding new ways to slow down this mind emotion connection as well as redirect energy in new ways. It's as if the world slowed down and now our minds need too. Very interesting observation.
The intriguing part is how relaxing and connecting to self it is to bring down all our being a notch in pace. How lovely to move and direct ourselves more consciously for we can in this moment. Using greater wit and focus on what we do and how we do it only enhances our experience and our results from any action. We are dancing a slow song now and that relaxes and resets us. Watching ourselves find a new way that works for us in greater ways. while watching the fast spiral unwind is curious. The joy being that a slower, more melodic, gentler rhythm is enlivening. I am deciding with clarity how to expend my energy and have time in between tasks. Very enjoyable reorder.
I inspire you to enjoy the slow dance around us. Use it to find a more healthful, inspiring, smooth pace to glide in life. If it is in sync with the nature around you, you will feel more relaxed, comfortable and flowing. That can be a reference point for us. Let all your bodies realign with our physical pace the world has created to operate in. Use it to support yourself at the highest level.
Readjust the rhythm of life to a pace and flow that enhances you on all levels. I most certainly am looking for this new song of me. I am inviting the pieces of myself that don't want to slow down or feel in resistance to this very fascinating. I feel them and allow them to move on. It really doesn't matter what we think or how we feel about it. It is here so to use this for our growth, health and development seems productive. Great connection to our true spirit and healing of our ideas that don't really serve are up for review. Make it work for you. Do we really have a choice? The choice I am making is to envision a brighter more collaborative world and find how to add something towards that.
Blessings as you find your greater radiance to be in your body! More aligned, in sync with yourself and the world about you! Inviting you to shine! Health, well being, wholeness comes from alignment. Mind, body, emotions and spirit get a chance to really sync and find your intuitive connections. It is giving me great joy as well as cleansing my outdated beliefs. Very fascinating time of adjustment. I am finding it a bit sticky, uncozy yet releasing. I inspire you to do so as well!

Awakening! It is that time!
This time of year is so beautiful! The awakening of all of nature surges us all with beautiful energy of becoming. Even despite the odd vibe of us all harboring in, nature continues to show us, this is a time to renew and come forward in a whole new way. Our lives are certainly different at this time. However, the conditions support us to really go inward, reflect on things and support us in bringing forward creative ways to shift our lives.
My birthday this year happens to fall on Easter Sunday. It is perfect for me this year for I moved to Colorado during this epidemic. All is new for me in a new town, a new state, a new environment. I can feel the awakening of spring on so many levels. All things in life are different for me and it feels like a vacation. It is interesting for they say each moment is anew and being in this new place, I feel that so richly. Often we get caught in routine and a "groundhog day" feeling can occur. Yet none of us can feel that way this spring, for we are all experiencing the world in a new way.
I inspire you to really take this moment in time, this spirng 2020 to really awaken parts of yourself that will support your quthenticity. Many are get bored now, not sure what to do with all the busy chores done. We are so used to interacting with the world, doing so many things that can keep us busy. We can not longer do that in this time and I think it is good. I know I have rested more, getting used to the altitiude and oxygen level here and catching up on so many things that were put off as I got readu to move.
I also am finding huge spaces of "what should I do now?" My list complete and there is this open time on my hands where I can actually just sit and wonder what to do next. It is a great time to just relax. Relax truly for there is nothing to deter us from doing that. The energy of the northeast before I left had slowed down. I would drive and really just take my time driving. The west has even a slower vibe. The roads have only a few cars and learning a new town is easy with nobody behind me in a rush. It feels good to get this space inside. This moment to wonder about what is next? Not only in that moment but in general. We may have thought these things for an hour or afternoon, but now our time can really sit in this space of what to do next.
I am finding many parts of me that never had time to express are coming forward. This great level of creatiity is around. My daughter and I created a you tube and podcast of the Magical Holistic Healing Arts. A project I always wanted to do to share with others modalities but there was no time. I also feel the relaxation of creativity. You can not be in creativity if you are stressed and busy. The creative space only comes when there is space. Often you are lost in time and it seems to not exist when you are in creativity. This time of year is considered the most creative time of year. Rebirht, resurrection, renewal happening all around us. Life is awakening from it's sleep with incredible beauty showing up around us. This is the great surge of creation!
I am also finding this swirling inside myself. It is the only way I can describe it. I am entering spaces that I have not visited in a long time. Really getting a moment to remeet myself in a way. We become these beings over time that has habits and patterns, we label ourselves as on time or behind, organized or not, shy or outgoing. I am finding things inside that don't fit those old labels. Being in a new place, I have no history here. No one knows me as this or that. Whenever I met someone it is new in that moment. I know nothing of them other than what I am experiencing of them and they the same for me. It is a wonderful feeling of presence that I didn't really notice living in the town I grew up.
Swirling inside yes. Going into the crevices of Lyn that I have never felt time or perhaps interest in inhabiting. It is very freeing and quite fun. So many pieces of me that I am and never investigates. it is intriguing to me to get to know myself in such a way. Usually we are learning of others but at this time, we are learning of ourselves for we can. We can face our boredom, our annoyance, our irritation of this situation. Our fear of not knowing. Our panic and anxiety of when will I get back to life as I knew it. Our joy of being able to just do nothing. Our peace of being able to sit and look at the birds or be in nature and truly have the moment to get lost in it. It is a very interesting swirling.
My life will never be the same. I no longer will hang in the nature places or see the daily people I did. It is a full on rebirth for me. I imagine if I was still in PA. life would be very different too. We can't grab lunch or drink with those we love. We have to chat, text, facetime or zoom others. However I am sure neigbors and those who live close will get moments of relationship that may not of before. Local stores and the clerks we see become our new visits with others. There are so many shifts in how we live that I find exciting. I am at an air bnb and getting to know the owner in a way perhaps I would not of before. I am cleaning up her garden and supporting the beautiful yard for spring. If we didn't have this lock down, I would of been out investigating the town and classes about rather than gardening in the yard.
Relationships have a whole new meaning now. How we feel about our family and being harbored in with them 24/7. Human contact or interaction has changed. When your are out some people fully in fear, others happy to be interacting with other humans. A very interesting dynamic of social interaction. I find it really fascinating that I even have time to notice or contemplate all this. A renewal on all levels. So perfect as the earth is sharing it's new beauty. We can find new beauty in all life.
I also welcome all the emotions that arise. I a bit advocate of our emotional nature really being used as the guidance it is. We get the time to really let them come forward and wash up and out. They show us the quality of our thinking even if we don't notice we are thinking. It is the perfect purge of spring like getting rid of the old leaves and stalks from plants. Our emotions are a barometer of ourselves. We actually have the time to really feel them. Letting go as we watch them pass through. A grand cleansing of self only to find what we really feel about things. A magical process this year of really knwoing ourselves.
Blessing during this time that we are really getting an opportunity to reorder ourselves on all levels. There is discomfort as well as joy as we walk through this spring. I inspire you to find the joy in all this or atleast the rebirth as a stepping stone to yourself. Unknown to us all this situation yet life really is an unknown. It is supposed to be creative each moment. Perhaps we get to remember and really feel that relaxed, creative energy in a way we never could of before. I am using this renewal time to birth a Lyn that has never been before. Each plant and each tree has never blossomed exactly the same each spring. It is all new matter and cells creatied by the winter and the nutruients the plant has mixed together. We are truly the same. Never have we been in this moment before, this spring before, this lock dwon beofre. What wonder can we get from it?
I am truly reawakening to myself as I am now in this moment. I hoep you all are doing the same. The odd, the ugly, the beautiful and creative is all here in this moment. How will you use this for greater joy and happiness? Let us all revel in this new learning. Who knows what wonder and delgiht will come of it! We always seem to make it through whatever has been before so we will now. The question is how will we be reborn from it all? What good will come from it? What can rest, relaxation, renewal do for our lives? We are finidng that out!
Great love to you this spring!!

A Celebration of Self!
At each stage in life we evolve our mix of gifts. It is part of our growth, wisdom and path to mastery. Finding myself so free in Colorado for this next chapter, I am inspired to share how we find greater vitality when we celebrate ourselves! I think that was the blessing of the Himalayan Masters visit. I learned about my energy field, how to share that with others, how to feed, move and nourish my body and shift stress energy to power. Most importantly though, was the gift of learning my feminine body as different than a man's. That starts with celebrating yourself.
We truly don't celebrate ourselves enough! We celebrate others so fully and know the power it has. Yet we don't savor, revel or sit in OUR feel good moments. We whip past them onto the next task forgetting the deliciousness of accomplishment. We don't care for our sacred body as we do others, love on it and thank it for all it does. We push it, don't listen to it's call for down time and end up with a myriad of weakness and ails. All because we just don't really appreciate ourselves and all we do. It is a rat race of comparing, measuring our ideas against some ghosted desires that aren't even ours. It is truly a wonder we even survive this abuse.
This nourishing aspect towards ourselves is the key to our health. Men want competition, power, strength and endurance. Woman operate differently just by their very biology. Yes, we can do those things but extended periods of pushing is not a woman's way. We magnetize, draw to us, invite, intrigue, allure, attract. Very different energy power! One reaches out, the another draws in. It is the opposite. When we begin to honor our femininity and celebrate that power differently, we will excel in our health. Science is coming around to it.
Have fun, sink into our wonder and really feel good about ourselves. We all do so much for many running our lives.In this time of lock down, we really get to hear ourselves. We get to feel feelings that we are too busy to feel normally. Manage tasks we were too busy to handle It is such a gift of self we get to experience in this moment. In respite, woman heal and connect to themselves, they nest. Our cycle creates that way for our own inward time monthly. Woman work on cycle and we need to understand it. Our body has a natural, healthy need to step away and nourish itself. Go through the lower emotional body in order to cleanse and rebirth. This cycle is a celebration of life and how it becomes into being. We get in rhythm with our femininity.
When we are caring for others, we can still do it all when we understand how the flow goes. Being able to take our time is key. We have miraculous skills of completion. Our ability to multitask is powerful and we are designed that way. We need to revel in these gifts! We have different hormones and organs. It will take different use of energy to create a balance in our body.
Nourishing energy is fed by nourishing energy. It is a never ending well around us. As we celebrate, fill and acknowledge ourselves in nourishment as we do others, we find an unlimited supply available to us. This creative, nourishing energy is part of the magic we command as woman. It is our gift of giving life that taps us into the greater universal system of creating naturally. Through celebrating ourselves, taking time to know ourselves and feed ourselves what we need, we command a power greater than our own well of energy.
We don't have to shift our natural gift of nourishing, just find a way to give more to ourselves so we may be included in our efforts. Notice how much you are valued and do even if others don't show it. The world would collapse without the web of woman running it.
And if in this time, you are worried about the future, consider all the things you worried about have eventually worked out. I imagine our worries at this time will also work out. We have come this far and seems we will continue to be okay as we always are. Maybe not as we planned or wanted, but we get through just the same. Woman naturally know that and hold the space for that to be.
It's time to really begin a new spring of celebrating yourself. It may feel weird at first. Our training of how silly it is or how perhaps we could judge it as egotistical is interesting to watch. It is none of that. It is self esteem, self love and confidence. If we don't find joy in ourselves, we can't really receive it fully from others.
If you have areas that you want to be better, joyfully work on them. No one is really judging you but you. No one cares much and if they do, they just aren't of your tribe. It is good for us to be different and celebrate in that. Your magic that makes you you, can't come out if you are acting like another. We need your greatness fully at this time. What ever your gift, it is divinely inspired and needed as it is. No fluff or sharpening needs to be added.
Take the down time to celebrate who we are. Own it, know it and find the lil quirks that make you yourself. So much self development about changing ourselves. My schools were always about celebrating what you are that is good. From there the unnecessary falls away. The good revels further and becomes more. The law of energy to use and inspire yourself!! This is the natural woman's way. To see the beauty in all things and celebrate it!

,The other day I learned a perspective on two energies that really has shifted my point of view! I did my own birthday Goddess Card reading for inspiration towards the year. In the reading, I got the card of Sekmet, an Egyptian Goddess of Anger and Rage as well as Bast, the Egyptian Goddess of Play. In reviewing the history, they were considered the two aspects of the Sun God. At some point they appeared the same and things evolved to two aspects of the Sun depending on where you reference them. The history I chose to integrate was of Amy Sophia Marashinsky in her Goddess Oracle deck.
This struck me as interesting for never have I heard the Sun, the power energy of our world, put forth as having two aspects listed as anger and play. It really intrigued me to digest this. It expanded me to look at at anger as the opposite energetic of play. Yet when I think of having so much fun and the power it exudes and consider anger with its power, I could see how these are two ends of the pendulum.
As it was described through this Egyptian lore, Play is nourishing, the life giving aspect and Anger is the destructive, protective aspect of Sun energy. This was beautiful to me. Never had I heard it put quite that way. It supported me to embrace anger not in a negative way as we often do. We seem to have many judgments on anger, getting angry not so supported and often we have seen very destructive aspects of anger. We can beat ourselves up for being angry or mean. Seeing it as a good use of power, as a viable way to express this life giving energy was curious considering our upbringing. There are definitely times when anger is important and a message to move, stop something or boundary yourself for what is going on is not nourishing!
Anger is just an expression or guide to us from our emotional nature that signals destruction is here. Something needs to end, be left behind or is not working for our highest good. It then becomes such a guiding, inspiring emotion! It is indicating what is not working. Rather then feel bad that we expressed it, we can embrace it's presence as a message to get rid of something or move in another direction. Perhaps just boundary and stop what is occurring for it is not working
for your well being.
More exciting was the life giving aspect of this Sun power is PLAY! That I found most inspiring! The highest nourishment comes from play!! How cool is that? And opposite anger? Wow!
Can we use the destructive energy of anger within to be cleared by playing?
I like that idea. I like that if we find anger within we can transmute it to nourishing energy by playing.
It gave me a whole new spin on humor as well. How often have we been in situations where anger was about and started giggling a bit at the insanity of a fight? it is almost as though our body being knows how to shift this energy to get us more present. Or even after a fight, you consider what occurred and you laugh for it was funny how you acted! Not that this happens always but it does. When sharing the story, we begin to laugh at the craziness that occurs with anger. How interesting is that?
I found clearly the message in these two cards in a new way. It softened the judgment of anger as well. It gave it a clear purpose and a way to understand this emotion that many stuff down or send out powerfully. All that is occurring is one is using the life giving energy as destructive
and rightly so for they are not feeling nourished or honored in the situation that is occurring.
Better yet is the power given to play!! So often I have been told to grow up, stop being so silly and get serious! Yet play is the highest nourishing power!! So being playful, silly, fun and inspiring is great nourishment and the top expression of Sun energy. That is the greatest news to me
on this Easter Sunday that also happens to be my birthday this year!
It makes sense when I see nature. The awakening of the plants, the blooms on the fruit trees and magnolias. Playfully they greet us in beauty of returning to life. The fruit, the high expression of the plant kingdom has this vibration of delight, beauty and inspiration that feels like play. Nature looks like she is playing often. When you see the animals frolic or the butterflies flit around.
The babbling of a creek or the rush of a waterfall, all have this playful feeling.
We feel like wondrous children often when in nature.
Curious, enlivened, delighted and fully present.
Very interesting indeed! That is why I love the lore, mythology and philosophies of story telling. Many ways of joyous living were passed through oral tradition in story. It wasn't necessarily the characters for they represented aspects, ideas, philosophies.
Perhaps for us to remember these things.
I also find it quite interesting that both these Goddesses are depicted in the form of cats!
Sekmet is a angry looking lion and Bast a cat of play! I will leave you with the poem on Bast
for it is the most inspiring words on how to heal with play!
Perfect for this time of being harbored in our homes!
I swirl and twirl, I hide and seek, romping and ranging, funning and frolicking,
My opportunities for self-amusement are endless and the pleasure that it gives me makes me purrr.
Life challenges never stop me for I know how to whole myself with play!
