I’ve Been Raging At THAT MAN For Too Long

Ever since the election, I’ve been in a state of, well, quite frankly, “Define Interesting.” “Oh god, oh god, we’re all gonna die.”* Rage, fear, stress, depression, despair, helplessness…you name it. So many of us have been – and it’s draining us.

I’ve been caught in the quicksand, unable to pull myself out, finding myself retweeting post after post, unable to step back and not feed the beast. I didn’t know how else to make a difference, but I think in reality, I was just another person making things a little bit worse with the endless focus on the negative. I haven’t been mindful of what I’ve been adding to the mix, and I apologize to those who have been caught up in my fear. I’m fairly sure I’ve lost a friend or two along the way, and that saddens me.

This morning I woke, checked Twitter, and slowly it dawned on me that I *can* make a difference, one that is more subtle, but no less important than helping bring to light all the darkness that’s been festering for too long. I’m a lightworker. I’m supposed to be working on the side of service, not regurgitating negativity. As my friend Michael said, “Be the light, Pip. Be the light.”

By working to help others feel better via distance healing sessions, I, and others who have this ability, can begin aiding souls so stuck in that quicksand that they’ve lost hope of ever getting out. Souls that have been abused and are still to afraid to talk about it, souls that endure racism and hatred daily, souls that have lost all hope.

I can’t change your life, but I can ease some of the stress and pain for a bit. I can help bring “healing harmony” (thanks, Alice, for coming up with that phrase to describe what I do!) to your mind and body, giving you a time of peace in which to feel comforted and rested.

I hope you’ll do me the honor of allowing me to help you in whatever small way I can. I offer sessions for $1.00 a minute, and I also have more intense sessions that work to help you speak your truth, which has a different price structure.

I look forward to being of service, and I promise to slow down on all the retweets! ­čÖé

Zentangle and Mindfulness

Arwen Lynch wrote this great article about “Zentangle for the Soul“, and it reminded me that I had taken a class a few years ago with my cousin. We were the only two who showed up, and so we had the teacher’s undivided attention. It was fun!

I’d pretty much forgotten about “tangling”, but every now and then I’d run across the kit my cousin surprised me with after the class. After reading Arwen’s article, I dug everything out. The items in the ziplock were from class, and the book I picked up used at a local store.

I kept the tangles I created in class  and then right after:

This is my favorite of the 4. I did it after the class, and I really like the checkerboard pattern (would love a floor like that!) and the hearts. It just all came together so nicely.

In this (my 2nd tangle ever), you can see the evidence of my tremors in the spirals. Drawing a spiral is one of the tests they use to decide if you have Essential Tremor or not.

Not thrilled with this one. It was the very first attempt at tangling. I bought some colored Sharpie Pens to jazz it up, but there wasn’t any help for it. ­čśë

Another ‘meh’. Not sure what I was doing here. ­čśë I seem to like hearts and checkerboards, though.

I have a hardbound blank notebook in which I’ve begun another tangle. It’s easier to keep with me than tiles. The other day I was on hold for almost 45 minutes with customer service, and I finished a tangle that I’d started the day before.

Yes, you can start a tangle and finish it another time! As a matter of fact, there’s a lovely blog post by Eliza Fayle about easing in to creativity, and as she’s a tangler, of course she uses that as her example. She tells about creating over the course of a day (not multiple days), and that has made a big difference in how I am doing the tangles. I don’t always have time to sit for 1/2 an hour or more to create one, so this gave me the permission to connect back to it over the course of the day. It’s great!!!

Do you tangle? Link to some of your creations! Or post them on Instagram with the hashtag #tanglingfun .┬á I’d love to see them!
