Synchronicity. Wow! Today January 5th, 2017 on my FB feed was this newsletter that showed up as a Memory shared on January 5th, 2016 with this quote as the inspiration.
“Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experienced the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves.” Gabrielle Roth
Guess what quote I was going to use today January 5th, 2017 as inspiration for the newsletter?
“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: “When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?”
Wow…apparently this is a message I need to hear again. So I am re-imagining my life this year to go even deeper into sacred space, dancing, singing, telling stories and discovering or re-discovering quiet. I think that has something to do with the magazine app homeopathyfirstmagazine.com as well because I love the creative aspect of including audio, video, storytelling, and other healing modalities…more than homeopathy. All healing is resonance. Maybe Ron and I will take up square dancing!
Seems that I cannot leave writing and reading and listening to music alone; I must share. But in the spirit of the promise for self-care, this is but a brief note.
Today I received an email declaring that this is the most amazing re-imagining of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons symphony to day, a synthesis of conventional instruments with electronic sound. The sound is a bringing together of the old and the new…kind of like homeopathy…healing in a new paradigm and working with the old, a synthesis.
As I was listening, it was the pauses, the space between that held the most energy for me. There was time to resonate within even more deeply with the music…again…like homeopathic remedies that resonate, vibrate and support inner healing.
Max Richter in Concert: Reimagining Vivaldi
Then to my delight, I looked on the right hand side of my screen and there was the composer, Max Richter and a video of the sound track from The Leftovers Season 1. As I listened to the sound track, I was haunted by the ability of the composer to leave his personal sound print in both recordings yet maintain the integrity of another master composer’s work and at the same time introduce his unique sound into his own original composition. You could hear Richter’s influence in both.

If classical music is not your thing, maybe this will move you as it does me.
Damien Escobar on violin playing Am I Wrong…I love his passion and commitment to his music. As with Vivaldi and the violins, I am moved to a place of joy and healing.
So it is with a homeopathic remedy. The remedy has its own resonance, vibration and imprint that matches the individual in a state of illness, an illness that has its own resonance or song. You have a feeling of joy and freedom with a well selected remedy.
More homeopathy to come in the New Year. For now my wish for you is a soulful 2017 filled with dancing, singing and story telling. And in the midst of great joy, find your quiet place within where you can be at peace with yourself. Your own inner peace will change the world more than anything else I can imagine.
Yours in health and healing,
