When it’s time, it’s time

I’ve been doing to card spreads, asking some important questions, and the answer keeps coming up the same. I did a final spread this morning (a simple yes/no one, the creator of which I’d never know until I found this post) and I pulled 3 aces. I don’t use the Magician as they do in that post, just Aces as my yes.

I’ve tried to let go in the past, but my heart is to invested in the help I can give. So instead of completely letting go, I created a Ko-fi page which I will use as a sort of mini-blog/Twitter combo – maybe with a bit of Insta thrown in, and I won’t be blogging here anymore. The website will stay as my anchor (though the domain expires next month and I think it will revert to thishobbitslife), but I’m letting the dream of making healing my life’s work (and financial support).

My mom. Reactions like this feed my soul.

Why? I was texting a friend earlier today, and the answer just flowed out of my fingers: “So I need an income from elsewhere. Might not be a bad thing, actually. Wanting healing to support me financially has taken the fun out of helping others and put the focus on making money. Reminds me of something in Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert.

“I held on to those other sources of income for so long because I never wanted

to burden my writing with the responsibility of paying for my life.”

And, lo, what did I do? Exactly that. I loved helping others so much that I assumed it was the way to make my living. And when the money dried up, my enthusiasm to help didn’t go away, but stress came into the picture and I lost the drive to blog and tweet and, well, anything more than send light, honestly. I did hundreds of free sessions – not a single one of which do I regret – but because I tied them with income, worrying about all the money I was “losing” kept me up nights. I didn’t like thinking that way about my life’s path at all.

I can never, ever, give up sending light, but the stress that came from marketing myself (abysmally) is gone since my decision to drop it all. I feel wonderful…and ready to get back to doing what I love.

Much love,
Pip 🌻

PS: if you know of any great ways to make money from home, let me know, ok? I’ve tried Upwork, but with little success.

PPS: I may be writing a bit about being a caregiver on Ko-fi, too. Another thing that didn’t really fit on this website.

PPPS: Why back to “The Healing Hobbit”? Because I always loved that name. It is who I am in a nutshell. I won’t change my Twitter username, but Insta is changed. Not cohesive? Oh, well. I’m over analytics and ROI and all that jazz. The only thing that matters is helping the world feel better, working from home, and taking care of my guy.

It Says “Add a Title”

And I can’t think of one.

Haven’t posted in a while for various reasons, the biggest being that what comes to mind is about life, not energy healing, so I end up closing the site and doing something else.

Except I haven’t been doing anything else. Things have been incredibly stressful and scary since the beginning of May around here, culminating in an awful hospital stay (not for me) and subsequent physical therapy rehab that’s still going on. The last three weeks were hell, and I have not been able to get my footing, or my energy back. I go and visit for hours, come home, and zone out watching Hulu. If I didn’t have to feed the critters, I’d most likely sleep all the hours I’m home, but I can’t. I’ve been to the hospital all but 3 days since the 28th, and on the rare occasion that I don’t go, I feel guilty. Today I feel awful, my guess it’s the after-effects of all the driving in the intense heat, and I stayed home yesterday so others could visit (they didn’t), so I feel doubly guilty today.

I missed the deadline to reup my domain name, and frankly, I’m not sure that’s a bad thing. I loved, loved, loved doing the Dare Session in what, April?, and I love helping others feel better…I just simply do not have the energy to worry about content creation, scheduling posts, etc. I just don’t. And we all know…you know it’s true…that I suck at it in the first place. I was not meant to be a marketer.

Not sure what’s going to happen.

Much love,

Ah, Mercury Retrograde. Sigh.

I’ve been trying to write a blog post for days, but my internet continually goes out every 5-10 minutes, and it’s driving me insane. The cable company doesn’t know why, so I’m sort of stuck. I’m actually writing this offline and then will try to quickly post it.

How are you all doing? I’m a bit freaked out by all the mask-less faces I see, especially at the grocery store, I must admit. I’ve come across a couple people coughing nasty coughs, and I just cringe and walk the other way. I’m not ready for this. Not until more people get vaccinated, especially for the safety of the children.

Osa is doing ok. She’s already bored with house arrest, and I’ve let her go out back with our smaller dog for a bit here and there. Our male would much rather be a house dog, so he’s quite fine with that. Osa is super-excitable, and when she’s excited, she wiggles. A lot. I’ve done my best to avoid all situations in which she gets that way, but even just one of us walking into the living room in the morning sets her off. I’m honestly not sure if her leg is any better; she limps often and it doesn’t look much different when she walks than before the surgery. It’s frustrating, but there’s only so much I can do. I still believe a dog who undergoes this surgery should be sent home with some sort of brace to hold it steady, especially a big dog like Osa.

Fire season has begun, the air is full of smoke from Arizona, and the heat has kicked in. So much heat. I’m not ready for this summer.

Between dog sitting and human caretaking, I’ve been sending light. It’s what keeps me sane, honestly. I did a lovely distance distance session for someone in pain in Costa Rica and her pain went away (I love it when that happens!), did a Dare the Possibilities session, and it was neat to feel the flow of light getting stronger for certain chakras compared to others. Someone asked me to “check her lungs” and my first thought was, “no, I don’t have that ability”, and then I thought, “why not”? So I did a little hand placement, and then switched it, and I could actually tell that yes, she did need light, and where it was needed the most. It was pretty cool! I love trying out new things to further enhance how I can be of help to you guys.

Well, the internet is kicking back in again, so let’s see if I can actually add a picture and post this!

Stay cool and stay safe!

Much love,
Pip

Brain Fog Central

Every week I write ‘blog’ in my planner. And every week I have zero idea what to write about. Even if something comes to mind, when I sit down to start typing; poof, it’s gone. The same goes for the newsletter I was going to resurrect. Blank. My mind has left the building, taking all the notes, quotes, and inspiration with it in a rolling red suitcase. And I’ve no idea where it is.

It also seems to have snuck all my energy in there, because it’s the same with to-do lists; I write them, I fully intend to achieve them…and the effort is just too much. I know being anemic contributes to that, but still, it’s as if all I can do is get through each day and hope a good night’s sleep will refresh me and kick things back into gear. So far, it’s not happening.

OH, and get this. Remember this post, “Laters, Alcohol!” (still a work in progress, sadly)? In it I wrote that I was about to start my 60th year of life, aka, turning 59 (I’ve since fixed that). I had a dr’s appointment Thursday, the type that requires a medical bracelet, and that night I was looking at the bracelet and noticed that they’d mistakenly written that I was 58. Then I looked at my birthdate, did quick match, and son of a…somehow I managed to get my own age wrong! That’s how foggy my brain is lately.

I noticed lately that I’ve been scrolling through Twitter for way too long every day, and I removed it from my phone. I don’t know if it was a subconscious attempt to kick my brain into gear with all the information, or if all that information was overwhelming my brain and contributing to the inability to think straight. I suspect a bit of both, but I’m pretty positive the overwhelm was real. I still have Instagram (on an old phone; it creeps me out that it works on my usual phone even if blocked by the firewall), but one: I don’t follow as many people there, and two: picture-posting isn’t as frequent as tweeting, so I spend a lot less time scrolling. I really enjoy accounts that show real life, and aren’t just for marketing. I’ve also removed other ‘mindless scrolling’ accounts from my phone and caught myself wondering ‘Now what do I do??” yesterday. Because somehow reading books had fallen to the wayside in favor of what’s on my devices, even Hoopla and Kindle. And I have a room full of books to read!

It’s almost as if I’ve forgotten who I am, and need to find my way back to me. Does anyone else feel that way? Removing the digital accessibility is going to take adjusting to (which, coming from me, who tries to be all about safety and using encrypted email and texting, is a bit ironic), but it’s getting warmer so I’ll be able to sit outside and read in the sun again. I can send light while outside, too, and that always makes my day.

How has the pandemic affected you? I really thought that I was doing ok, because while I stayed home most of the time, NM was very aggressive about dealing with the restrictions and masks, so I was able to go shopping and get out of the house. It felt like normal life. But it really hasn’t been, and I wonder how long it will take before we all are hit with PTSD and in what forms it will manifest?

Be safe, take care of yourself!

Much love,

Hello, Spring!!!!

I love spring. It’s the brief time before the weather gets so hot here in New Mexico that sitting outside to read isn’t happening. The wind, well…the wind is spring here. It’s worth it.

It’s also the time of the liver. Time to be gentle with it and take care of it. I recently read Wheat Belly (again) and Grain Brain (wow) because I noticed certain symptoms when I went back to regular eating after doing my best to eat plant-based for a while. So it seems the perfect time to drop the wheat and see what happens. I have a friend doing the same, and we’ll support each other, yay!

Great photo, wish I knew who to credit.

The biggest news is that I’m tweaking my focus a bit more to working with animals. The horse I’ve been helping made it through the winter and the polar vortex without any problems, and I love how easily animals respond to the lightwork. They say to find your niche and I think this is mine. I still love helping people so much, but this decision feels really good.

Here’s to a wonderful spring, lots of rain (fingers crossed), and wheat-free belly! lol

Much love,

Pip

My heart is singing

I had to share this! And yes, my Twitter account had a different name for a bit. πŸ™‚

Makes this crappy news day SO wonderful!!!

And in not great news, did you see this about 4 fully-vaccinated people in Oregon contracting Covid? Not unexpected, but also not good news. And then there’s this thread about the WHO stating that people who have had Covid CAN get re-infected with the new strains.

Please, please, please continue to wear masks (double up as recommended by the CDC), stay away from others, and for the love of life, don’t eat inside restaurants!

With love,

Pip

Choosing A Word For 2021

Picking a guiding word for the year is something I’ve done for a while now. Last year I decided to go with a feeling, lighthearted, and quite frankly, this year has left the vast majority of us feeling anything but, am I right?

Normally I just wait til a word pops into my head that feels right, and I go with that. Thing is, I also don’t really do anything to help that word along. Not this year!

I use Passion Planners, which come with a Roadmap to help you focus on and achieve your goal. December hit me hard and I’ve been super depressed. Rereading The Desire Map seemed the thing to do, and Bing! Lightbulb! Feelings, not goals. How do I want to feel next year and more importantly, how can I make it happen? I dropped the gamechanger part of it, choosing instead to focus on all 4 important emotions that compromised my core desired feeling: Light.

It’s not easy finding a picture to represent what I mean by light…

Light? Didn’t I choose lighthearted last year? I did. Is there a difference? Honestly, not much. The world is too heavy right now, and as any empath can tell you, it’s suffocating. Anything that isn’t heavy is how I want to feel, so light, light-hearted…same difference.

I scribbled all over my current planner’s Roadmap, which I never filled out, sifting through words and what would help me feel light, and finally, finally, narrowed it down to Delight, Comforted (a big one), Peaceful, and the hardest one to pin down, Financially Secure and Independent. I’d first chosen “like I make a difference”, and that is a part of it, but mostly I want to work for myself, helping others feel better. Which is a way to make a difference, so yay.

Then came the important part. What will help me feel each of those 4 feelings? Under Comforted I have “my journal, fleece as much as possible (soft soothes me), special treats such as hot chocolate and ice cream”. Nothing major, but little things I can focus on weekly to make sure I stay in the Light lane and don’t veer off into the No Eating for a Week and All I Want to Do is Sleep lane again. I’m still not out of that one yet, to be honest.

I’m still fine-tuning it and haven’t transferred it to my new planner. I feel good about it. I hope next year is better because of it.

Do you choose a word? What method do you use to do so, and have you ever felt the need to repeat one because it means so much to you? Let’s chat in the comments! I’m curious how others go about this.

Happy Yule!!!!

With hope and much love,

Pip 😎

PS: This holiday season is possibly one of the most difficult most of us have ever gone through. Stress and anxiety are an important part of my work; check out what I can help you with!

How Holistic Healing Can Help

At work, in my office

I’ve been doing multiple sessions on some people (and Crackers!) for a while now, and today Suzanne sent me this:

Dear Pip,

I count you as one of my blessings and I’m so grateful you’ve taken me on as a client for multiple, recurring sessions. Sometimes, like last night, I don’t realize you’ve sent me light in the day, because I don’t check the message until later, and then I sleep through the night, waking up only once for the bathroom versus nights when I wake up 4 or 5 times.

Your work has benefited me for certain. I wish I could quantify it so it’s less woo woo, but frankly, just because something’s subtle doesn’t mean it’s not powerful. What’s more, neither my doctors nor I can quantify whether the new injectable biologic (once monthly) asthma drug or the new intravenous infusion (twice yearly) of ferritin pulled me out of the drain I was circling this summer. And what surprised me is, they don’t care! They say, As long as you feel better, let’s keep doing it. I haven’t told them about you because, you know. But you channeling focused bonus Light from The Source is definitely a big part of this sustained upswing.

Thank you, again, for everything.

My heart is so happy right now. πŸ’–

Much love, and stay safe,

Pip

PS: You can get your own session (or sessions) right here!

Doing What I Can

…to help the world, one person at a time.

Today is a difficult day. It’s like a culmination of so many emotions, so many layers, so much trauma, grief, fear, anger…it just goes on and on and on. I can’t make it all go away, but I can give you a respite. Sessions are 1/2 price til midnight Sun (MST).

Much love,

Pip

PS: I’ve been sending light to someone recently diagnosed with Covid-19, and again, while I can’t cure it (though I wish SO much that I could), I can give some peace and pain relief. She says it’s helping, so we’ll continue on, hopefully helping bolster her body’s own healing ability so she gets through this with ease. I would love to help others in the same situation; please contact me or DM me on Twitter.

Animals and Energy Healing

Hey everyone!

Every time I sit down to write, my mind becomes filled with everything that’s going on, and I lose motivation to post. We’re all having such a difficult time, aren’t we?

I wish I knew who to credit for this

I haven’t been sending a lot of light to humans of late, but I have been sending to animals quite often. I love helping them! I always notice the difference in the strength of the energy when it’s an animal on the receiving end; they have no idea it’s going to happen, so there isn’t any prejudgment, nor are there any expectations. As such, I think they are more open to the healing than most humans are, even those who understand what it is, its limitations, and what can and can’t be accomplished with it. I think it’s because subconsciously in humans there is always something going on that can affect the results.

I charge the same for animals, and usually do a 30-minute session. Hit me up if your fur baby isn’t feeling up to par! It’s also great, as with humans, for stressed and anxious critters, too.

So, how have you all been doing? I’m certain I’m suffering from low-grade depression, with some days being more full-on depression than low-grade, and there are days I just want to find a cave somewhere and hide from the world. I try to be positive, but damn, it’s not always easy, is it?

What have you been doing to keep yourself going? OH! I have a pumpkin plant that my neighbor gave me, and it has, last count, 7 pumpkins growing! The vines are growing like mad, especially one, and it’s so much fun to see how big they grow daily. I thought I had a picture handy but I don’t; I’ll take one and post it next time!

If you’re looking for me on social media, I’m on Twitter as Heart’s Peace Heal, and Instagram as heartspeacehealing.

I hope you’re all doing ok and staying safe!

Much love,

Pip πŸ™‚
