Happy Sunday-Monday, Journeyer!
You know how it is when family comes to visit?
Your schedule goes all sorts of wonky.
Your floors somehow manage to accumulate dirt and dog hair (if there are pets involved) at the speed of sound.
Your kitchen counters are cluttered with the extra items that won’t fit in the fridge or the pantry.
And speaking of the kitchen, mixing all of those moods and temperaments will sometimes spark a little tension, like a hot spot that erupts in the rubble of a recently doused fire.
Yes. That stuff. And so much more.
Your stomach hurts from laughing so hard and, let’s admit it, that growing laundry pile might just have something to do with that aging, stretched out bladder.
You know what that side-splitting humor incites. “Stop, I might pee myself” and “Oh, I think I just peed a little.”
Your pride bursts from your heart, blasting your aura outside your home’s walls.
Your belly burgeons from all the food consumed during the many festivities and those trips to favorite restaurants.
Fave and Whirrel are here but for one more day. It seems crazy that seven days have passed.
As I glanced through my calendar and this week’s photos, I couldn’t help but notice that no matter how differently the week played out, so too did it progress much the same as usual.
We gathered with friends and helped one family celebrate their daughter’s culinary talents and dreams coming true.
I had a massage, which always balances me and makes my body happy.
I continue to make slow and steady progress with Counselor Ess, both individually and with Warren.
I enjoyed gathering on the sidelines to watch Big Guy as he took to the field in this year’s first summer soccer league match. And I was disheartened for him when he pulled his hamstring. Again.
That boy loves people and community and staying in shape, so I know how much being out of the game for a bit is a let down for him. Yet I am always inspired by the way he seems to keep it all in perspective, no matter what comes his way.
I tried something new, Journeyer. Though I am a trail blazer at heart, I’m a cautious one; someone I’d call a cautious adventurer.
My boy and his gal are currently consuming a vegan diet, of which I know little about. Needless to say I was thrilled when they came bearing a few bags of groceries.
Early in the week they cooked us a delicious meal of meatless sushi, some kind of soup, and a mouthwatering, curry rice dish.
During a conversation about my worsening psoriasis, Fave mentioned that he used to have a bad case of the condition, event to the point that it was in his eyebrows and beard. When I asked what he did to get rid of it, he gave a little chuckle and said that it was a side effect of eliminating meat and animal products from his diet.
Two weeks, he said.
So I’m going to try cleaning up my diet for a few weeks and see what happens for me. What do I have to lose?
Why, even the heavens encouraged me in this direction when I did a Tarot/Rune reading for myself early in the week before this conversation with my son.
I’d asked for guidance as to what I needed to know about my energy level for that day.
The one card I pulled from my Ascended Master deck was White Tara. The theme at the top of the card was Purification, which “could mean a purification of your body and diet.”
If that isn’t a clear message that all of the fast food drive-thru’s I’ve been frequenting might not be so good for me, then I don’t know what is.
Speaking of the Metaphysical realm, one of my favorite moments from this week’s Happy Highlight Reel is a training I took on Friday.
Journeyer, I am so happy to announce that I am now certified to practice Level I Integrated Energy Therapy®, also known as IET®.
Whereas Reiki balances your Chakra system, IET®, in the most basic of descriptions, is a way of clearing stored negative energy from your cells and replacing the space with the energy’s positive counterpart.
For instance, when we remove distrust, we fill the space with trust. We replace fear with safety, stress and powerlessness with ease, anger and resentment with forgiveness…
I’ve been blessed to have this work performed on me numerous times and I can honestly say that it works, Journeyer. You can actually feel the energy movement.
Like Reiki, this modality can be performed remotely.
On and off, I’ve been working on a website store for the past year, and am thrilled to say that launch time is almost here!
I am so excited to be able to offer both Traditional and Metaphysical healing resources in my contribution to help heal a world of hurt.
This past week has taken many twists and turns, from sitting quietly on the couch to struggling to stay atop an inner tube that is bouncing across waves behind our boat.

Until next time, yours in hope, healing, and happiness,
p.s. As we celebrate today, may we all remember that we are the land of the free because of the brave. Thank you to the service men and woman of past, present and future, and to your families who also know the sacrifice of keeping our country safe and free. I salute you.
