“…The tongue may speak to human ears, but souls are reached by souls that speak to souls…”

1977 Healers and the Healing Process – George W. Weeks

I was recently gifted an assortment of old books on holistic medicine. Some dated as far back as 1916. I’m fawning over the illustrations, fonts and wealth of information that is still so pertinent today. Many of the pages I randomly opened to seemed filled with words I needed in that moment. This has become the highlight of my week and makes all the stress of exams and deadlines worth it. I’m really looking forward to sharing more about what I find in these gems. Today at my chiropractic assistantship I felt the fire inside for healing get stronger. I have such a long way to go, but I am indeed on my way and that feels pretty good. I have been working on listening and observing my thoughts more closely and I realize that I am much more negative than I presumed. This closer observation gives me more leverage in successfully shifting my inner dialogue. I aim to create a more open channel within my vessel, one that is ready and able to receive the things meant for me. I truly believe that it is working and I want to write about the synchronicities with events and numbers that have occurred lately, but instead, my intuition tells me to just process and remain quietly present. In brief moments when I compare myself to this world, I’m afraid that I might be the crazy one, but deep down I know that’s just fear talking me out of being me. I have to constantly keep reminding myself that there is nothing to fear but fear itself. Don’t forget that.

Until next post, namaste.

Mirror, Mirror, May I Have a Word?

I always assumed everything would just click one day. In a unique way it does, but for a while I was waiting for a special moment, a feeling of readiness to just be me, as if an awareness/self-love fairy would sprinkle womanhood dust on me in my sleep and I’d wake up feeling perfectly complete.

I’ve learned there is no special moment unless you make one…every second, of every day, be authentic for you. Wake up, choose to be grounded in spirit, show up and trust in God to have your back (universe, source, yourself, whatever you believe, just TRUST). On some days I may have to remind myself multiple times within the same hour that everything is okay and that my existence alone is simply enough. When I do fully surrender to that trust, beautiful synchronicities seem to fall into place as if they were meant to be exactly as they are. For years I’ve wrestled with anxiety, imposter syndrome and an insanely active inner dialogue that can be absolutely brutal. That is okay because I am working on it, running through the dark forests of my mind with a bright torch yelling GTFO! (Making room for love to grow in it’s place.)

The word “wellness” covers a wide pool of trendy topics, often used for profit, targeting all demographics with cleverly creative marketing angles. Nothing beats good ole capitalism right? Tis the society we raised, and like most parents, ‘we think we did our best’, but sometimes ‘best’ just isn’t good enough, especially in messy tangled situations. It’s fine, because there is a greater plan and we will transcend in due time as the collective soul awakens.

WELLNESS (far beyond overused tag lines in mainstream media) is a REAL pursuit towards an optimal life. True wellness is the foundation of self-perseverance inside and out (and it is your responsibility to water the garden of mind, body and spirit). It is an intimate relationship with the self that holds sacred validity on all vibrations. You are the only one who can have that much POWER over you. I strongly encourage myself and my fellow humans to use that power for goodness in hope that the raw truth we cultivate within ourselves will reflect out and nourish us, galvanizing and balancing the knotted webs of tethered energy choking this world. If we set ourselves free, we set each other free…like a massive lung taking a big huge breath of fresh air. Exhale. Woosah.

Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu. (“May all beings be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and freedom for all.”)

Namaste,
