Happy April!!!

It’s snowing here! Lightly, but still. It’s April! All the flowers and trees are in full bloom, the grass is growing…and it’s snowing. Mother Nature’s giant April Fool’s joke. 😉

The other day I was pondering life and all that goes with it, and I came across this blog post by Alexandra Franzen, called He’s Waiting. She’s Listening. In it she discusses when she began blogging and feeling like what she was writing wasn’t making any difference. And then something amazing happened, and she remembered the truth of writing:

“The truth, which is:

If you write something and share it — and your words help one human being to experience a better day, or a better life — then your work is a tremendous success.

And also,

You never, ever know how your words might influence someone else’s life.”

I have felt insignificant many times over the years, both as a blogger and a healer, and that post really hit home and sent me thinking. What I write here will, as the subtitle says, be “a little of this, a little of that”, because, well, that’s how I roll. Things catch my interest and I want to tell someone!

I’ve missed blogging, and plan to do much more of it. I promise not to inundate you, though!

I hope you continue to follow along, and please, if you’re in need of a healing boost, check out website, see how I can help you (even from across the world!), and let’s get you feeling better, ok? OK! 🙂

Breast Cancer and Alcohol: the Connection

Rather than write about me today, I decided to do some research and pull up some facts on the connection between alcohol and breast cancer, since, again, the point of Dry July is to raise money for cancers (am I getting that point across? 😉 ).

Right off the tip, DuckDuckGo pulled up an article by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which states in the very first paragraph, “A pooled analysis of data from 53 studies found for each alcoholic drink consumed per day, the relative risk of breast cancer increased by about seven percent. Women who had two to three alcoholic drinks per day had a 20 percent higher risk of breast cancer.” That’s a lot of percents! Most ‘normal drinkers’ will have a glass or two of wine nightly, and that 20% can add up quickly. Most ‘problem drinkers’ will jump down the rabbit hole and their percents are sky-high. It’s a miracle that I don’t have breast cancer, quite frankly. And I’m grateful beyond the tellin’.

berriesThis blog post pulls in information that states that, “For postmenopausal women even less than one drink a day was associated with up to a 30% increase in breast cancer mortality compared to non-drinkers.” Yikes. I’m heading in that direction, and a 30% increase is an increase I just don’t need, as I plan to live to be 110 and give my descendants a run for their money. 😉 I like how she mentions that one does not need to drink wine to get the benefits of Resveratrol – which, according to this article, you’d have to drink 1,000 litres of red wine daily to get, – and as for the atrial fibrillation, I know that there were many a nights when I woke to my heartbeat racing like a thoroughbred in the Kentucky Derby, and let me tell you, it’s one freaky, scary feeling when it doesn’t slow down no matter what you do.

Then I found a study that states no correlation in premenopausal women, but a definite one in post-menopausal women. Now one could conceivably think, “Yay, that means I’m ok!”, but the overwhelming body of research finds a correlation, regardless of age, between alcohol and breast cancer. Period (this raises the percentages more than in the Susan G. Komen article). So I’m with the woman in the blog mentioned above; stick with blueberries and grapes!

Breastcancer.org is full of all the latest info (as is Susan G. Komen); check them out. Educate yourself on this pervasive disease. And donate! The funds raised for the Avon 39 Walk to End Breast Cancer ALL go for breast cancer. All of it. Be a part of something wonderful and help!

And thank you. 🙂

Thoughts for the Day

IMG_0802469 I was looking through my Filofax, and I have a section of quotes from different books, such as The FireStarter Sessions, as well as a blog or two, such as Belle’s.  Ones that jumped out at me were:

“First, get clear on how you want to feel.  Then, do stuff that makes you feel that way.” (TFSS)

“As of today, stop wasting energy trying to sell things to people who don’t want them.” (ToTaD)

“What makes you feel strengthened?  What makes you feel weakened?” (TFSS)

“Stop trying to be good at stuff that makes you feel bad.  Get better at what you’re best at.” (TFSS)

And…”Your most valuable currency is what comes most naturally to you.” (TFSS)

Some pretty powerful quotes, don’t you think?

What comes to mind when you read them?  For me, it’s all this online marketing stuff, which we all know I suck at. 😉  It doesn’t make me feel good to try to sell healing to people who aren’t responsive to it, it doesn’t make me feel strengthened at all…it actually makes me feel weak and needy.

What does make me feel strengthened is writing.  I like to write.  I like to pass on things I’ve read about, experiences I’ve had, life with a Filofax (es) and no smartphone…whatever comes to mind.  Writing has always been my refuge, my ‘go-to’ when I’m stressed or moody (you should read some of the poems I wrote in high school! No wait, you shouldn’t. LOL).  So I’m going to write here more, PLAY more on Twitter, and who knows about G+.  I need more fun in my life, and if that’s what I need to do to get some, then that’s what I’m going to do.

I’m going to be a blogger who is also a healer.

Who are you going to be? Does something unexpected come to mind?

It’s All About YOU!

I’ve been reading lately that people don’t purchase things from you when you are the one doing the selling/promoting, which doesn’t make sense on the one hand but does on the other: if I’m the one promoting and pushing my healing and no one else is mentioning it or talking about a session they’ve had with me, then why would you believe that I can do what I say I can do, right?

So. With that in mind, I want to put a little boost out there about some of the wonderful people I’ve had sessions/readings/purchased items from (and this is by no means a complete list, so if your name isn’t on it please don’t be offended!).

Nienna, The Offbeat Goddess, who was one of my first regular clients and has become a cherished friend, from whom I’ve had some of the most mind-blowing card readings!  I’ve also been privileged to test out some of her courses (I think another one is in the works) and highly recommend them!

Sarah, The Fairy (and angel) Messenger, who began working with me and we did trades – her messages for my healing while she was getting massages. 🙂  I’ve had a past-life reading from her, multiple messages from Archangel Gabriel, and one particularly laugh-filled message from my personal fairy ‘guide’.  If you get a reading from her, I highly recommend a phone or Skype one…her laugh will cheer you no end!  Also, she wrote a book about fairies that is in the final stages of being published!

Michele, Midlife Psychic and Mystic as well as owner of The Enchanted Amulet, from whom I received a gorgeous necklace as a birthday present and I’ve also a lovely, very responsive pendulum that I wear as a necklace.  Check out her G+ communities, too!

Donna, a dear friend and co-owner of Awakenings with her wonderful husband Rudy, who has helped me many times (and she was one of the first people on whom I used my new-found Healing-Light!).  She is an outstanding medium, and also gave me a very interesting past-life session with respect to an issue I was having.

Megan, of Intuitive Marketing and Design, who gave me very valuable marketing guidance about my business when I was first starting out on the whole social media ride.

Ronda, the Modern Oracle, who has given me spot-on guidance and with whom I get to geek out about Firefly.  🙂

One last hidden gem: Stacey who isn’t running a business (YET!), but she gives some of the most detailed card readings I’ve ever read, and she receives messages from the angels and has created heart-felt and effective blessings for me concerning various aspects of my life.

Those are off the top of my head, and as I said, by no means a comprehensive list.  These are my recommendations as a client, if this was a list of all the outstanding people I know simply as a friend, it would be miles long!  I’ll be doing this again at a later date!  Please, feel free to mention anyone that you would recommend to others so we can things rolling for them, too!

And now I’m off to send some Prismatic Healing! 🙂
