Words Matter

Dayna Nuckolls of The People’s Oracle has been talking on Twitter about how words matter, and the ease with which we forget that point and don’t always think before we write or speak. That attention really needs to paid to the words people use, especially these days in the time of a man who spouts “Fake news” and lies as easily as most people breathe (my words here, not hers).

I always have had a difficult time telling people what I do, in that sort of elevator description way. “I do energy healing” sounds…odd. What does that mean? And how do I heal you?

Words matter.

I’m not a healer. I do not heal you. I help you. What I am is the conduit for Divine healing energy (I call it “light” because of the colors some people see), but I’m not the one who knows what needs to be helped deep down inside, who loosens what needs to be loosened, who releases what needs to be released, who infuses you with the exact amount of light for your specific need…I’m not. I’ve never claimed to be and never, ever will claim to be.

I am the conduit.

What words do you use to describe yourself that just don’t sit right? What would fit better? How can you sit with the words and find the ones that matter the most? Who are you?

Existential Angst

A couple months ago I turned 56, and all the thoughts in my head that had building for a few years completely exploded in my head, diving me into some deep existential angst. Things that I’d never worried about were now front and center, and I’m not liking this at all.

So many whys.

From the vast, such as why are we here? What is the point of our existence? Why do we push and struggle so hard when the vast majority of us won’t leave any mark at all? Why do we do anything if it doesn’t mean anything? And if it doesn’t mean anything, does that mean that it should mean something to us to give this life meaning??

To things such as, why have we gone from mostly supportive blogging communities to instant social media sites that are making so many of us miserable and stressed? Why is fast so important? Why isn’t deeper communication meaningful anymore? Why is everyone staring at their phones all the time, even when walking down the street? Why is being constantly connected online so important now?

To the menial things that now drive me nuts daily. WHY are there so many trinkets in my house that I keep even though I barely look at them?? Why is there so much clutter?? Why do I save things on my computer when I am so much an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ person?

It all comes down to one question:

What is the point of it all???

Rilke famously wrote, “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

I’m trying, but it feels like the wheel is spinning faster and faster, and the questions get bigger and deeper…as well as more inane at times. And i don’t feel any closer to the answers, do you?

It’s All Just Too Much

The endless news, the draconian abortion laws, the immigration crisis and people in cages separated forever from their children, climate change…

It’s too much. We are under such a tremendous amount of stress and fear right now, and it seems like there is no way out, doesn’t it?

Mr. Rogers always said, “Look for the helpers”…and now I say, “Look to the Lightworkers”. They come in different shapes and sizes, and they don’t always make a big splash, but they always manage to bring a smile and a feeling of “ahhhhh” to your day.

I do that by helping others with my energy work, my friend Pearl fills her timelines with pictures of all her critters and nature (warning, snakes!!!), Johanne, an amazing card reader and artist, uses Twitter for her mental health diary, and it’s awesome; there are those who refuse to pass on anything stressful, such as Tiny Buddha, which I adore, and Anne Wheaton (yes, Wil’s wife) is unfailingly optomistic and kind, no matter what is thrown at her…the list goes on. I could write an entire post with links to all the amazing lightworkers (who don’t even know they are one) in my Twitter and Instagram feeds alone!

Look for them. Weed out who you follow (my political list on Twitter was insane, and now I’m down to about 10 key feeds because I just couldn’t handle it any more), check out more cute animal feeds, go outside and read a book, take a day or two off social media (believe me, if anything major happens, you’ll still find out about it)…step back. Ask for help! Community is so important now, and an online one counts just as much as in-person.

And if you would like some energetic relief, I’m here for you.

With hope,

Pip

PS: I recently read “Walking Home” by Sonia Choquette, and there’s a line that I can’t get out of my head. It reads, in part, “…all I really wanted, more than anything else…was to be comfortable and comforted.” Doesn’t that resonate with you, too?

The Perils of Working Inside

Look at all those pretty windows!

And not one of them opens.

So many of us spend our working hours, which, in many cases, outnumber hours outside of work, in buildings that are sealed. The only openings are doors, which only open when someone is going in or out; they are rarely propped open for airflow.

What damage has this had on our health? Think of that one department in which someone is always sick, the particular sneeze Sarah sneezes daily that everyone used to get a chuckle from but now don’t even notice, the coworker who is never, ever without tissues in their work area and on their person because of a constant runny nose.

I’m sick for the second time in 6 weeks. This one is a doozy, and I really suspect it’s due to working inside. When I’m not working for a length of time, I don’t get sick; put me inside a closed environment and voila, it’s back. Companies tend to overlook ventilation systems and filters, but when those little coughs and sneezes are a constant, or a new hire who hadn’t had a cold in years has now been coughing for months, that’s exactly where they should be looking. Recirculated air has big problems if not correctly monitored.

As a healer, it’s in my nature to want to help as much as I can, but even the most fervent desire to make things better doesn’t always make a difference. I tried to help someone, but when the coughing began anew each time the heater or a/c kicked in, it was obvious that more needs to be done.

Every company’s profits run on the back of its employees, and I’m really curious how many hours are lost due to these niggling health issues that can, as I’m personally experiencing, grow bigger and worse with each successive incident.

How can we, as healers, make a difference in such a situation? Any ideas?

Where Did The Time Go?

It’s been a while!

I have a new, wonderful, full-time job with people that I really like, spring is blooming all over the place (literally overnight as usual with the crepe myrtle in front of the house), we have a new dog that’s been added to the household (his owner died and he was going to be put in the pound…hell, no!)…and I haven’t been here or doing much healing work of late.

I miss it. I miss the wonderful feedback, I miss helping people and critters, I even miss blogging.

I hope to be more consistent and hang around here more. 🙂

And get used to this new editor WordPress has…

With hope,

Pip 🙂

Begin as you mean to go on…

I once dated a guy who had that as his motto, and it’s quite fitting for the beginning of a new calendar year, isn’t it? 🙂

Woke to blowing snow, frigid temps, and wanting to stay in bed all day long! Instead I got up, fed the pets, wrote 3 things I’m thankful for, pulled cards, made breakfast for my guy, and now I’m drinking a cup of tea and writing this.

I intend to blog more, keep a simple morning ritual (most likely exactly what I did today), and, as the card says, make time for spirit. No yoga because of a bad knee, but more tuning in to myself and Spirit. Transformation doesn’t have to come in a Tower-like incident, it can build slowly and comfortably until it’s such a part of you that when you look back you really can’t tell when the shift happened.

So many of us make resolutions, big ones usually, and they fizzle after a few days or weeks because it’s such a huge change that we have a hard time incorporating it into our lives. So take small steps. Go for slow and easy. Bring comfort, joy, and courage to what you do, and it will go much easier.

Here’s to new beginnings!

In 2019 I want to feel…

My word for next year is, as mentioned before, transformation, but how I want to feel is just as important, thanks to Danielle LaPorte. Last night I was pondering the idea, and “lighter” popped into my head. Lighter physically, emotionally… just in every way. Life has become heavy and I want to let that go.

“Comfort” was the next word, and then another popped in, and before I knew it the words from the definition of hygge that I found “comfort, joy, and courage” completed the list. Four simple words that mean so much to me.

And the thing is, by feeling those three words, I’ll feel lighter, too!

Do you use feelings as your guiding light in life? Not in the Law of Attraction way, but just as signposts to help you along your path? What words come to mind for next year?

PS: On Twitter GetGonetheMovi1 posted a response to Ed Solomon’s tweet concerning the correct pronunciation of Happy New Year (I can’t find his tweet now and suspect it was deleted because people took it seriously), and now I can’t get it out of my head. I’ve been adding specific calendars to it, so, Joyous Gregorian Calendar Renewal to you! 🙂 Let’s hope next year is better beyond imagination!

Admitting That I Want Things

Most of my life has been financially strapped, you know, the ‘paycheck-to-paycheck’ lifestyle. With too many times that were behind by two paychecks or so. It sucks. It’s a scary way to live, the stress ebbs and flows but never quite disappears because how will you pay rent this month is never, ever far from your mind…

Since my word for next year is transformation, I’m going to sit down today and do something I’ve never, ever, ever done before: I’m going to write a list of things that I really want. Things that I never admit to because “I’ll never have the money for it” is the first thought after, “Wow, wouldn’t that be cool?!”, followed by, “There are other things that are more important than that”. It never ends. So I pulled out my Passion Planner and started this page.

I’m going to write down every single thing, no matter how frivolous, like Funko Pops which I never buy because ‘no, spend the money on necessities’ overrides the desire for joy in my life. Even if it comes from a mini Funko.

What do you want to do differently next year? Something that seems small but in many ways is the biggest leap you can take? By writing these things down, I’m putting it out to the universe that I’m READY to live abundantly. That I am so over being poor. That I never want to have to ask for financial help ever, ever again (thanks, Mom, as always). That I want to experience things that I’ve never allowed myself to. That yes, living abundantly actually does mean spending money on more than what is necessary to live, and that by doing so, I open the door for more income to flow to me.

I’m ready. Are you?
