It’s a Small Fibromyalgia World

Kind of. To quote the National Fibromyalgia Association,

” Fibromyalgia is one of the most common chronic pain conditions. The disorder affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. and an estimated 3-6% of the world population. While it is most prevalent in women —75-90 percent of the people who have FM are women —it also occurs in men and children of all ethnic groups. The disorder is often seen in families, among siblings or mothers and their children. The diagnosis is usually made between the ages of 20 to 50 years, but the incidence rises with age so that by age 80, approximately 8% of adults meet the American College of Rheumatology classification of fibromyalgia.”

That’s an astounding number of people.

Yesterday I was reading Stacey Chapman’s blog, Fighting With Fibro, and I came across a comment from my mother. She has her own blog called Strangely Peculiar (which completely fits her), and has fibromyalgia for decades. Seeing that comment really brought home the fact that fibro is hereditary, though I hadn’t know that til very recently.

It also brought to mind the time when I first discovered that I could help others feel better, and I wanted to try and do what I call, ‘sending light’, and called my mom to see if she wanted to be my guinea pig. Now my mom is just like Scully…woowoo isn’t her thing, but facts are. So I figured she would be the person to ask, rather than someone in my woowoo world, because I would get from-the-hip feedback.

She agreed, and I began to send. Within 10 minutes she called and asked me what I had done?, and I kind of freaked out. I thought I’d messed something up or hurt her, but it was the exact opposite. She felt better, her head was clearer, her pain had lessened…she was amazed and I was, too. She has a comment here on the website concerning another session, that still, to this day, makes me smile.

I admit that I haven’t sent to here in too long (sorry, Mom), but today is a chill day and I plan to do just that. If anyone else would like some light, click here to purchase a session – the best part is that you don’t have to go anywhere or do anything to receive the light! – and I’ll get back to you and we’ll set up a time. A 30-minute session is $35.00. If you have any questions, you can contact me via Telegram.

BTW, my flare has lessened some, but is not completely gone. I’m relatively new to this level of severity, and I cannot imagine how those of you who have it 24/7 function; I would love to just crawl into bed and stay there. Major kudos to all of you!!!

Fighting the fight,

Pip 🙂

At A Loss For Words

Which is why I haven’t posted in so long. There’s too much to say, too much horror going on in the world and this country, too much…everything. What do you say to all that?

So I sit and retweet things on Twitter because others are saying it all and there’s nothing I can add to it. I cry and my heart breaks more and more each day. And don’t say “we aren’t this”. Obviously a vast amount of us ARE. And admit it, we always have been. We just sugarcoat things in history books and the news and to ourselves. Humans have an innate fear of things we don’t understand, and that turns to violence and rage and wars and murder and the list goes on and on.

We suck.

Not totally, but in many ways. Think about those little comments you say in your head when you see someone different, you know, the ones you would never say out loud because they aren’t nice things to say. It’s almost an unconscious act to have those thoughts. The problem is when people act upon them. Then the shit hits the damned fan and we end up with concentration camps (again…don’t forget that we’ve had them before; no ovens doesn’t mean they weren’t) and the government we have because they freaked out over a black president (what nerve he had!, they think)…

So…maybe not so much at a loss for words.

And this wasn’t even meant to be the focus of this post! I’m having a fibro flare like never before, and I am lost in the pain. Swimming in it. Someone get me the hell out of this pool, please. I’m reading fibro blogs, and something not in the slightest bit important jumped out at me: I like to read blogs, if they aren’t decades old, from the beginning if they interest me. Please, PLEASE put a calender widget in your sidebar! I read a post, hit ‘back’, and then have to scroll through the entire blog to get back to where I was. Over and over. ETA: discovered that if I read them via WordPress Reader, I can scroll through all the post. Win!

I’m just sayin…

BTW:

Want this shirt.

I’m too tired to eat properly, which isn’t helping at all, and I’m not sleeping enough, again, not helping, and I sit and read Twitter and blogs. I haven’t had a healing light client in months, which hurts my soul (honestly. I’m great at my day job, but it doesn’t feed my purpose in life), and this week, due to this flare, I won’t have a paycheck next week. Fun times.

OH, and I keep coming across people noticing that things they are doing online (and of course on their phones) are showing up as ads on FB and IG. Even from text messages. I re-upped IG recently because “everyone is on it and it’s the biggest marketing tool out there”…but those niggling feelings, coupled with our government now, has me planning to drop it again. Not that Twitter isn’t checking out our shit, too, I know. Stonekettle says that CounterSocial is a bullshit/Nazi/troll-free site, similar to Twitter, but you know how it goes…getting people to shift to something new is harder than getting that fake dude out of that office he didn’t actually win.

I think I’m out of words now. 😉

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).

sign by barnowlprimitives.com

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?

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?

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!

PS: A wonderful way to start things fresh is with a Dare session. It unblocks the energies of your bottom 5 chakras, opening new paths in your life and allowing you to speak your truth more easily. Curious about it? Read about it here. 🙂

Word for the Year and a Bit of Divination

Last week I pulled a card from the Osho Zen Tarot, seeing what it had in mind for me for my word for 2019. It came up with this:

I wasn’t quite feeling it, so later I tried again. Same card. Hmph.

The next day I was watching this weird show a friend mentioned that’s called Kentucky Ayahuasca, and one of the clients mentioned “transformation”. Ok, that’s 3 times. Fine.

Then yesterday another friend gave me a card reading, and what did she say during the reading? Yeah. So. Guess what my word is for next year? Lol

I pulled a few cards on the 20th to see how the winter season was going to go for me, and these came up:

That’s not a great picture, sorry. They’re incredibly reflective.

Mentally, oh, definitely it’s been a 10 of wands time, and it looks like the next 3 months won’t change much. Gorramit. I’m going to have to make shifting that a focus.

Physically, feeling fat and blech. Yup. Time to address that, too.

Financially, oh, I like this!!!! My greatest wish is that Hygge Lightwork gains footing and all the clients who need my help around the world find me.

Not too bad for an outlook, and coupled with my friend’s reading, it’s going to be an interesting few months!

May the rest of the month and year be good to you, and let’s set the intention that next year will be SO much better. Because I don’t know if I can take another year like this one. You?

Why Did I Choose “Hygge Lightwork”?

I recently mentioned hygge, a Danish word meaning “to give courage, comfort, joy” (*from Wikipedia, source noted below), a concept resonates so strongly within me. The more I thought about it, the more it felt connected to the healing work I do, and the heavens parted, the sun shone, and the angels sang!

Yeah, that was a bit over the top, I know, but it totally cracked me up to write it. 🙂

I’d written about something similar last year, and while the feeling was close, it didn’t quite nail it for me.  Also, whenever I mentioned ‘comfortcrafter’, people thought of Martha Stewart and scrapbooking and the like. Not at all what I was going for. What I am going for is this:

“Hygge Lightwork is bringing the feeling of hygge

to your body, mind, and soul using energy healing.”

That feeling of being at home, safe, warm, and peaceful, only energetically instead of outwardly. Does that make sense? It’s feeling that inside, without need of the warm socks, the flickering candles, the hot chocolate (I have hot chocolate on the brain today…need to buy more). It’s sleeping better, it’s the release of the tightness in your shoulders that you didn’t realize was there constantly, it’s being able to move because the migraine is gone: it’s that feeling of “ahhhhh.” That inner sigh when everything is just right. That is the feeling most people experience when receiving healing light (which I will now call hygge lightwork), and that’s the concept I want people to intuitively get when they find my website.

This Wounded Healer Takes On Building A Healing Business

1

~Image from my embodiedawareness.wordpress.com~

In my last blog post I mentioned breathing problems, and, as with so many of us who live with chronic conditions, adding a new problem to my admittedly small list is a bit overwhelming. I shake, I have pain, and now I have compromised lungs. Woohoo. Not.

Three bouts of bronchitis and one of pneumonia over the past three years has done enough damage to my lungs that working in a manufacturing environment meant that the chemicals in the air necessitated inhalers, which didn’t help. More than once I got into my car at day’s end and sat there, gasping for air. After literally nearly choking to death on congestion while sick with bronchitis (the most terrifying thing you never want to go through, let me tell you), the fear of not being able to breathe is a constant, and as I tweeted, “You don’t realize how much you take breathing for granted until you can’t!”

What this has done – again, touched on in my last post – is create a determination to live the life of my dreams, helping others with my healing work. Planning isn’t my strong point, but I’ve turned my Passion Planner into a business planner, keeping track of blog and social media ideas, as well as client appointments and feedback. I’ve got my eye on a guide for business and blogging from Blessing Manifesting, too.

IMG_20181126_082929264.jpg

I’m taking the need for little physical activity as message from the ‘verse to knock my shit off and run this business as a business, otherwise what’s the bloody point, right? Squandering my ability would be such a waste, and if I don’t do this, I’m going to look back one day and regret being too scared to really step up and make a serious go of it. I’ve done it half-assed over the years, having that “it will all work out” mentality, but in reality it hasn’t, and it’s because I blithely expected a successful business to just fall into my lap with as little effort as possible on my part. I tend to go through life that way, as I’m sure many of you have noticed. 😉

This journey is going to be something new for me, and I hope to be of service to you as I build this dream bigger than I could have ever dreamed!

Operation: Living the Dream Commences Now!

My friend Brett came up with the title of this post when I responded to his tweet about writing being what he’s meant to do. I said that I’d had to quit my job because of breathing issues and that healing work was my ‘meant to do’.

I spent all day yesterday reading, researching, and rebooting my dream. I reread things I’d saved on my Kindle by Theresa Reed and Sarah Von Bargen.  I came across a subscription gift by Esme Wang about using a productivity journal (aka a Bullet Journal). I was busy, busy, busy!

And then this morning I started my day by sending healing light…it begins!

“The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.”

I wish I could remember where I found that. It’s my new mantra. I tend to be a bit ‘Oooh, shiny things’, and lose focus; hopefully this will keep me from doing that. 🙂

Oh, and I wanted to remind you about Telegram! It’s like texting, but without phone numbers! It’s secure, there are groups you can join, you can have a channel (I have one but haven’t put anything on it yet), there isn’t a character limit…it’s great! You can contact me asap to set up an appointment or ask questions about my healing work.

I’m thrilled to take the time to let my lungs heal AND help others feel better at the same time!

Little Nudges

I started a new part-time job last week (yay!), and around that same time I sent light to a couple people, and the feedback was wonderful. I received a Twitter DM yesterday about one session, and it made me smile from ear-to-ear.

Why does the universe do this? Every time I find work after trying to make it as a healer, something like this happens. It’s weird. It’s like the ‘verse is reminding me where my true desire lies, but it only does it when I’ve had to resort to something else to pay the bills.

Ya messin’ with me, dear ‘verse. 🙂

It’s ok, though…I love helping others feel better. Keep nudging me so I don’t give up, ok?
