Today, I received a newsletter from someone I love and she mentioned that she was taking a one-month break. Wow! What terrific modeling for self-care. Then I realized, that her announcement resonated so deeply within because I need to recharge. I have been writing weekly newsletters now for almost three years. You will have plenty of back issues to dig through in my absence! Just use the search box on the home page and see what you can find if you have any health issues through the holiday season!
Although I have a tendency to be very shy about promoting my work I have decided to share this little video with you. My work is quite time consuming at the moment and the hope is that within a year, I will be able to lift my head from the computer, slow down the writing and fussing about the writing and return to some kind of ‘new normal’! And maybe get back in the kitchen to cook meals…although my husband Ron hardly looks like he is suffering too much! Me either!!
However…I am getting back to my Fitness Table workout and we are both trying to get in a few ‘steps’ in our day! The recommended 10,000 steps a day is still a bit elusive for me but, I am walking more than usual.
And soon I will return to a social life once again! Everything in balance…but for right now…I have a couple of projects that need tending.
Here is the short short video of my dream vision.
And here is what I have been working on for the last three years:
My work (with an amazing team) is Vaccine Free: Now What? a 12-week online Evergreen course. How to use homeopathy in the event of infectious childhood illnesses
Homeopathy First Magazine ‘evolutionary medicine with a revolutionary twist’…
Our goal is to inspire every family to have a homeopathic kit in their home – and to know how to use it. (you will see people I love who have contributed articles to the magazine…thank you! Might even be you!)
Shared work with other visionaries:
Remedy Autism is a not-for-profit corporation ‘for the public good’ in the USA / a charity in the UK, dedicated to understanding the causes of autism and developing ever more effective treatments. Founded by CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) practitioners who have experienced tremendous success in the treatment of autism through the prescribing of a combination of CAM therapies including dietary regimes, vitamin and mineral supplementation and homeopathy.
Remedy Autism is unique in that it is building a global community not only of CAM practitioners, but also with parents, patients, research scholars and scientists.
Homeopathy World Community – ‘Creating Waves of Awareness’
I am blessed to have so many loving people in my life. I am especially grateful for Ron who continues to stand by me with all my wacky dreams! And my adult man/kids Mark and Gord, daughter-in-law Natalie and grand-daughter Gracie…thank you for hanging in there with me while I pursue my latest learning adventure! Have to include my parents Gord and Bett too…how many ideas have you listened to for all these years? 🙂 Still cheering me on from the sidelines…lucky me.
I am grateful as well for each one of you. You receive my thoughts and me each week in your email inbox. Thank you.
If you feel inspired to light candles, say prayers, send me a note or share the dreams…I would be grateful. Support is a good thing and I too easily forget to ask, especially when I need it the most.
There is an even bigger dream…a new paradigm/metaphor for healing and medicine. Feel free to ask me about it sometime…maybe tomorrow, because today I am hunkered down with the snow blowing, fire in the wood stove and ready to catch up with some writing deadlines. Thank you for being in my life.
In the meantime, here is a quote that I love that speaks to this new paradigm of healing:
From Microcosmos: Four Billion Years of Microbial Evolution by Lynn Margulis and Dorion Sagan:
“…the view of evolution as chronic bloody competition among individuals and species, a popular distortion of Darwin’s notion of ‘survival of the fittest,’ dissolves before a new view of continual co-operation, strong interaction and mutual dependence among life forms. Life did not take over the globe by combat but by networking. Life forms multiplied and complexified by co-opting others, not just by killing them.”
Our immune systems are NOT a battleground but a system of communication and co-operation. We can learn from the microcosmos and our immune systems about how best to live in harmony.
In the midst of current violence, hatred, killing and bloodiness I am choosing the microcosmic view: a view that is co-operative, communal and most of all, caring. To be a part of your network is a gift to me.
Love to all this holiday season and yours in health and healing,
