Over the years I’ve saved several sayings that I have liked from various places and Facebook shares. They spike a thought and possibly creativity within me. I’ve been busy in my office trying to make sense of all the wonderful supplies I have! I am grateful for all that I have but now. I am working on organizing. I need to be in somewhat of order before I can create.
I went out and got myself some art supplies and jewelry supplies so I can enjoy both my creative talents. It is a good sign that I am feeling a pull to create. It has been a while and to my followers, I apologize. I’ve been frozen in place from grief. Couldn’t get off the couch.
I did finally get myself into the pool in our community and get my body moving… That felt so good and now want to get my mind working It goes in and out grief hits you at different times. I stay frozen (that is what I call it) less and less. This is good.
Tomorrow which is Memorial Day, I am celebrating my son’s 31 Birthday. First birthday since he went to heaven. I’m working on pulling myself together here so I don’t focus on sadness. I’m getting excited to dive into my jewelry beads and let them sing to me and see what I can come up with. I was on my design table last week and drew a blank. I know something is in there. I’m taking action and responsibility. I know I’ll have some sad days. Each time I get back to myself faster and faster.
Hugs from me.
First and foremost my friends. I did not realize how long it has been since I posted. So accept my apology.
Even though I have been working with metaphysics for several years. I should know better. I found sometimes when around people, like relatives or people you think you know well. You forget to protect yourself.
What happens you end up taking in the energy negative or positive and it sticks to you like velcro, wear it like glue and then wonder what is happening to you. You find your self sad, depressed or even sick. It has nothing to do with you. It was their stuff. It takes you a while before you realize this and recover takes a bit. Feel lethargic.
My go-to is food for comfort. and that doesn’t help!
I usually use a piece of black tourmaline to protect myself. I throw it in my pocket. I also smudge myself with sage. Do a chakra cleanse. Then I feel like I’m coming out of the fog. I had a lot of family stuff that hit me these past weeks. No lie, the grieving doesn’t help. Makes me more vulnerable. People who haven’t lost children, can not know what it is like to lose them. It is a different type of grief. People mean well.
Well, I’m glad to be back. I will see you soon…Take a hug!
Healing with sound has been around for a long while. Using voice. This type of healing is called vibrational medicine or sound healing. Everything from your voice to tuning forks and singing bells is used in this noninvasive practice.
- Amplitude- Size of the vibration, loudness of the vibration size of the sound.
- Frequency – Speed of the vibration, determines the pitch of the sound.
Each individual resonates to sound at their own vibratory level. Between the size and speed of vibration, the sound touches our bodies on a molecular level. When our bodies fall into disharmony and dis-ease, these sound vibrations break up the blockages so our energy channels can flow freely.
There are many ways you can use sound to benefit your health. Starting with only speaking good thoughts. Working with tuning forks, singing bowls, chimes, drums vocal chanting to name a few. You can go to youtube and look for the different notes that can help different aspects of your body. These frequencues are called Solfeggio. You can even lower blood pressure and stress.
- Tuning Forks – A tuning for consist of a handle and two prongs called tines. When the tines hit the rubber hammer (many use hockey puck), the tines will vibrate. This vibration disrupts blockages in your system.
- Singing Bowls – This ancient Tibetan was used for centuries for healing and meditation. The various vibratory frequencies balance out your mind body and spirit.
- Crystal Bowls – These bowls are different than singing bowls. Simply by the sound. The sound causes our cells to move in different directions at different speeds within the harmony of the sound wave. This form is very impactful.
- Drums– The earthly sound of drums also have been used by many cultures over the centuries.
Now sound has been brought into the mainstream medical practices with healing kidney stones and cancer patients. Plus much more.
There are so many ways that we can help ourselves with healing by incorporating things like sound and meditating to start to harmonize our body during rough times in our life. We owe it to ourselves…..Don’t we?
Years ago, I majored in art and I loved it. I enjoy my jewelry designing. However, I find that that want to do art. I’ve had dreams of me doing artwork. I felt that I wasn’t able to bring it to fruition. Have no clue of what medium to work with or what. Need to draw!
I spent my weekend on Pinterest to see if there is anything that jumps off the page at me. what I loved was working with pen and ink. I see I love using color. That sings to me. I used to do calligraphy and love all the different ways to work with letters. Plus I love all the swirls! So I ordered my supplies and I’ve started practicing. A lot of the pictures I’ve posted on here were from color by number. I see that I will go in reverse. I feel that is a great tool for learning sometimes. I look at a finished product and then back through the process. I will practice the pictures. I’ll notice how they use the coloring. The shading and the hues. I will do this!
When I found that image of quill pen and ink. I felt that it had to do something with my writing too. We will see what shows up.
I have stood on the shoulders of giants, as I have learned through the years. My main interest for years is finding books, articles, and websites that would help me find ways In which I can heal myself. We hold such power to do that. Much is right at our fingertips! Our fingers are jumper cables and we can balance our bodies all by ourselves. There are so many modalities. This is a good place to start.
As I find interesting information that I feel that would work. I am happy to pass it on to you. I am not necessarily trying to promote one modality or another. This is how I found things to work for me. If you like the websites, enjoy!
The first link is Jin Shin Jitsu, Inc. The main purpose of this method is self-healing. She has many books which I purchased if you want to pursue this for yourself.
Below is a handy article that I found on the process.
I had a rough week this week. Yes, I miss you too! I’ve been so sensitive about the silliest of things. I caught myself crying. I’ve tried so much to stay strong. Then the flood gates opened and they didn’t stop. I feel that sometimes it is so hard to stay strong you have to give yourself a break. Regroup and start all over again. Each time it gets less and less time between strong times.
All week I stayed on the couch. Did not do much. Numb. I just don’t like that. It is not right. Then I start with the wrong foods. This morning I said Stop!
Then I said to myself that it is ok to have a good cry. You lost 2 children. You gave birth to them, you raised them, fed them, clothed them, and everything else that goes along with raising children. All of a sudden they are pulled out from under you. You watched them suffer. Your heart is still connected to them. Poof…they are gone. What an empty feeling. They were adults they had their own lives. They were out on their own. But I really miss them! That is ok!
Today I’m typing this from my computer, opposed to the tablet. I am in my office and ready to start designing some jewelry. Hope you have a great day!
I have so many things on my list to do. My ADD kicked in and my brain went into a whirlwind. I finally found my way into the office and started working on paperwork. Getting organized and created some forms for my personal accounting. I had to remember to punch a 3 hole in the forms. You know they would get put back into the paper file and be rendered useless. Well, this is a start!
