This post is dedicated to my friend Rebecca, my good pal Mel's sister and everyone that suffers sickness and health issues. The general health and happiness of the people. See more Haiku MY Heart at recuerda mi corazon.
|The Cabinette after a stormy wintry night in 2007|
Weather patterns change
Ev’ry thing moved up a notch
Winter seems like Spring
These photos are from 2007. They are of our cabin on the Great Lake Superior during Winter. The night before these were taken, the snow was literally being driven into the siding by strong winds, the kind of winds that wrecked ships on the Great Lake. Like nails driven with a hammer each snowflake hit with impact and was embedded into the shingled siding.
Not this year, not so far, and the likelihood of a ferocious storm diminishes as time goes on. Sure, we can get snow storms well into April and even sometimes in May up here in the Northland, but the longer they hold off, the shorter in duration they are and melting happens more quickly.
We’re in the middle of another warmer than usual unseasonable spell. Temperatures have been above freezing all day since Monday, and the past two nights, they haven’t fallen low enough to allow water to freeze.
The NOAA, my source for weather forecasts, says this trend will continue for another week with no snow or rain in the forecast. This can change, in fact, there is a storm moving West to East now, but predictions are for this to pass to our South.
What’s my point? Simple. I just mentioned the four cardinal directions while talking about the weather. Some may believe that the healing spirit guides and helpers come from all directions. I do. It may not be about me, but I feel good the weather isn’t real harsh this season as I recover from heart related matters.
So, I wrote yet another Haiku:
My heart is fragile
Gifts from God and the Spirits
Kind touch of healing
Yesterday, I went to a spiritual healer. She was very intuitive. She incorporated a couple of methods of healing touch on me. Reiki and Ji Shin Jyutsu. I went to her upon the recommendation of a mutual friend as we discussed how out of balance things seemed as I was taking all these Western medicine drugs and trying to stay spiritual at the same time.
I lacked balance. I felt this and my body and mind were confused. Depression set in more advanced than it has been in the past, I was snapping at people, intolerant and aggressive at times.
This Sunrise Healing Arts of River Falls, WI practitioner sat with me as I explained what had happened to me. Tidbits of my past with more emphasis on more recent physical health events were discussed. Her intuition and these facts guided her mission and an hour long healing touch session ensued.
As she worked on me with light touch at different focal points all over my body, I had the sensation that her hands were still in one place as I felt her in another. I would have sworn that this woman had four hands, and at times, six!
The treatment seems like acupuncture by touch rather than needles. I came away feeling really good. In fact, she told me the feelings will last a few days before wearing off and that it was the spirit guides and helpers that came along on this journey to help me that would stay with me for a while.
|The Buffalo, Bear and Eagle spirits were present at this healing session|
I had a marvelous rest of the day yesterday. Having attended a Sweat Lodge ceremony Wednesday evening, then this healing session on Thursday morning, set me right. I booked another session to be held in two weeks.
Now, before you think I am rich. Connie has a very simple formula to help people. She doesn’t charge much. She knows she has expenses to recoup, but is interested in healing people, plying her gift to humanity, the money is to keep things up and running to pay the light bill, not for the guidance to healing.
I had a great nights sleep and I am ready for another day. If the spirits have left me, I sure don’t feel like it. I’ll hang onto them a while longer and savor the peace in my own heart, but I will share these spirits with friends in need like Mel’s sister who was newly diagnosed with cancer and our own Rebecca who is in constant recovery living with Pompes disease. These people were mentioned in the Sweat Lodge and prayers from the people were sent to the Creator.
I guess this weather and not having to have the goose down winter parka and Sorels out of the closet so far at all this year is a bonus.
Much Peace to All
