I never do a candid piece for my blog, but as everyone keeps saying these are unprecedented times. I am going to let some of you into a little piece of my world as I continue to unearth this new time for myself. So I just took a trip to Hawaii, before the Covid19 became a focus in our world. My conversation with Pele when I visited the volcano was my normal one. Where is the best place for me to be of service? What behaviors can I heal to be a better person for my partner, friends, family, and patients. If anyone knows me my last question is always is Hawaii my place? Then I come back to the mainland where it is a totally different place than the one I left. There were hints that things would be different. I kept asking before I left if I should go, and the answer was always yes!
One of the most magical moments that happened on the big island was before I went to the volcano. We stopped at a random beach that we found out was a black sand beach that was famous legend of a goddess called Kauila who can shape shift into a sea turtle. She is said to be in this bay to be a guardian of children, and give the life of pure water to drink. Above is a picture of that beach. I felt a strong connection to this goddess, and felt a strong connection to the land at this beach! I love how MAGIC happens in this sacred place.
In going there I healed so many things. My back pain that was not going away fully. My inner peace was back, and my drive to do healing work was in full force. Then I was asked to stay home for 2 months. In the beginning I found that other that lack of income, I loved just taking care of myself. It was a intense time of applying for many business things, and just taking care of myself and my partner. Then I was in intense pain myself from a toothache? So again the universe kept telling me to slow down, and rest.
Now I am back to work, but working super slow because that is what I have to do. I can't work fast with a mask that makes me tired from wearing it all day. I have to spend 30 min cleaning in between clients. I still keep asking the universe is this what I am supposed to do? How can I survive working this slow? Can our world change so that we can be this slow. Take care of ourselves. Get enough rest. Cancel when we feel worn out. Cook more home cooked meals so that we nurture ourselves a little better.
Then can we change our way of thinking? Treat everyone as our equal? Stop thinking of others as less than us. Stop creating a world of competition energy in our businesses, and promote a co-creative environment for everyone. If anyone knows me they know that I love everyone! I have gotten better at setting boundaries in this time of my life. I just find in this time that my heart just keeps breaking for those that are less fortunate. Those that continue to be treated with violence because they are a different race or gender. That this system that creates inequality has to change, and what steps can we physically make to make a difference for those people that are less fortunate.
What has gotten me through this incredible intense crazy time is:
- Slowing down & resting when I need it
- Getting acupuncture
- Taking Chinese herbs to help my immune system and anxiety that is beyond anything I have experienced in a long time
- Cooking myself healthy food
- Taking long walks or getting into nature so that can release this fight or flight energy
- Only allowing 1x a day to look at social media, or the news. Or even better 1x a week!
- Getting counseling and meditating several times a day
- Keeping myself healthy for other
- Knowing my gifts are for those who are raising a family, and changing the next generations’ way of living
