By the Glow of a Salt Lamp

This morning I read a newsletter from Amanda Mays, and in it she included a writing prompt:

“What was the practice or ritual that sustained you through difficult times?”

What an excellent question! I love her newsletters. And her Insta account is calming and filled with what she calls “celebrating dailiness“. Check it out!

This year has been…well, there aren’t even words. To paraphrase a line from Buffy, “It sucks beyond the telling.”. SO much.

But there’s still good things, like the roadrunner who perched on a chair on the porch, staring at the screen door with look as if it was thinking, “Excuse me? Is the the drive-thru window closed??”

From Dec last year

Or my cat, who disappears all summer long, every summer, except to eat; when the weather is changing she’s back to cruising the house, asking to be pet and paid attention to. Sometimes a bit too often, actually. It’s as if she needs to make up for all she missed in during the hot weather.

As for what practice that has sustained me? I had to think about it. There are a few things I do on a regular basis, but they don’t necessarily help me through this tumultuous time. They just are.

Then it hit me. Every evening my other half heads to bed at least 3 hours before I do. He’s the morning person, I’m the night owl. Somewhere along the way this year, I started to lightly massage his back while reading a book (I’ve been on an Elizabeth Hunter kick since I discovered her Elemental Mysteries series) by the light of a large Himalayan salt lamp. The orange glow is bright enough to read my old keyboard Kindle by, yet soothing enough that it doesn’t wake him. This has been the routine every night for months. So much so that when I get in bed, he automatically turns over, even if he’s not fully awake.

The massage helps him sleep, the books calm my frantic mind, and the light winds down the evening…it’s a ritual that we would both miss if it ended.

Have you come across a writing prompt lately that made you think? Comment, please!! 🙂

Much love,
Pip

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.

Linktree

When I had Instagram, I used Linktree and it was exclusive to Instagram. Now you can use it on any site, and that’s fantastic! You can add multiple links to it, including your latest blog post, particular categories (cooks link to things like breads, dinners, breakfast, etc). And you can change it at any time, so if you add a new social media site, or drop one, it’s all in one place. Easy-peasy!

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’ve started an account on Twitter as Heart’s Peace Heal.

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

Much love,

Pip 🙂

Best Feedback Ever

I’m dyin’. Can’t stop laughing.

Mom has a bulging disk and was complaining of back pain. Mom. The Scully in my life. The one who gave the last testimonial on the Pain Relief page. So I did a half-hour distance session, and let her know I was done. This is her reply.

“Well, it’s not all better, but it is better.  Stood up to open and put corned beef hash in skillet, with very little pain.  That’s kind of creepy, because there is no way this should work.  LOL  Thank you.  Love you, yomama”

I don’t see how anyone can top that, can you? 🤣

In this time where so many are ignoring the need for masks and social distancing (you have to watch this!), distance healing is becoming more and more important. What better way to relieve your stress, help with your pain, stop a migraine…all kinds of things…than from within the safety of your own home? Check out my healing work, Heart’s Peace Healing, and let’s set up your session!

Much love,

Pip 🙂

PS: I’m still laughing!

 

Helping You Helps Me

My friend retweeted this yesterday, and wow, it is SO me.

The best way for me to get through it is to send light to someone. Yesterday and today it was to a wee little doggie who hasn’t been feeling good for quite a while. According to his valet, he’s been stressed and twitching in pain then as I was sending light he relaxed, smiled a little smile, and zonked out, peacefully.

When you are stressed and anxious, and the world is sooooo scary, the benefits of a peaceful nap and internal relaxation are beyond words. I hope you’ll think of me when you are overwhelmed! I would love to help!

Breathe. Slowly and deeply.

Much love,

Pip 🙂

It’s All A Bit Overwhelming

Isn’t it? The news, the virus, the global warming…I don’t know about you, but I’m completely wiped out, emotionally, physically, and mentally. I took a few days off the internet, and it really does help, but the downside is that it’s so easy to forget what’s going on, especially with the virus. Fewer people wearing masks, social what?, more businesses opening; you get lulled into a false sense of “normal”, and that’s scary when all the experts are saying it’s only going to get worse.

So what can we do? First and foremost, ask yourself, “Do I really need to do x?” Do you really need to go to that restaurant or bar or concert or spa or…well, you get the drift. Ask yourself if it’s so important that it’s worth the risk. Think of all you’ve lived without for months; is it really, really necessary to make it part of your life again?

Stay safe. Wear a flipping mask, no matter what. Stick to curbside pickup as much as possible. Social distance, people, social distance. I made a brief, quick foray to a craft store when they opened in the morning (the item I needed wasn’t available for curbside), and as I was paying a woman stepped right next to me and put her stuff on the counter! I said, “Excuse me, 6 feet” and she just laughed. The clerk rolled her eyes at me like, “What is with people??”. Really made me rethink my “need” for said item. I rarely ever, ever go into a business, and every time I have, something like that makes me remember why I prefer to stay home. Compromised lungs aren’t something to mess around with.

Another thing you can do is have 30-minute distance Heart’s Peace Healing session! It will give you that “relaxing sigh* feeling, relieving the tension, and in some cases, bringing on a nap if you’re really, really stressed out and anxious. You don’t have to leave your house, do anything special, nothing; just kick back and receive.

And then let me know how you feel afterwards!

Much love,

Pip

 

Smoky Planning

It’s smoky outside today. There’s a fire in Arizona by Phoenix, and the wind has carried it all the way here. I remember one year when it was suddenly so smoky that everyone came out of the their houses into the street as we all looked to see what exactly was on fire. That time it was a fire in SE Arizona. It’s amazing how far wind carries things!

Yesterday my guy needed a particular date for a old medical visit, and I went and pulled out my Passion Planners from the last two years and easily found it. I realized that if I’d needed to search my Bullet Journal it would have been nearly impossible to find since I don’t use an index, so I got creative and mapped out a copy of the Passion Planner month and week set-ups in pencil in a new notebook (I’m almost through the one I have).

Cool, right? And doesn’t that sticker look simply gorgeous on that purple?

Then I made a mistake. I looked on YouTube. Chelsea Brown Designs has a video called “7 Planning Styles for your Passion Planner”, and I just had to watch it. I really like the Time Tracker method, simply because I don’t have a lot to plan, but do wonder just what the heck I do with my days! Thing is, my new set-up doesn’t extend long enough through the day, so I made a one page spread that runs from 9 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

It doesn’t leave room for much else, so I’m not sure how I feel about it, but I’ll use it ’til Sunday and see what I think.

I can’t wait to start adding Heart’s Peace Healing appointments!!

Much love,

Pip 🙂

BTW, do you prefer a planner that starts the week with Monday, or with Sunday? And why does America start with Sunday? Don’t other countries start with Monday? Sunday IS part of the weekend, so Monday just makes more sense, I think.

A Sweet Update

Back in February I posted a testimonial from my mom about a distance session on her foot, and a few days ago she sent me an email.

“Just wanted to tell you that after all this time, my foot still does not hurt like it did. 

I am aware of it now and then, but there is never any real pain.  And it hurt a lot before.”

It was out of the blue, I’d been having a rough day, and instead of going to bed tense and stressed, I went to sleep with a smile on my face.

I never fail to be amazed by the shifts that occur, some long-term like my friend’s hand which hasn’t hurt him once since a brief session 5 or 6 years ago, to an oasis of calm in someone’s hectic day.

If you need an energetic boost, I’m here for you!

With love in these turbulent times,

Pip 🙂

PS: I’ve done it numerous times over the years, always for the same reason, then I’m pulled back, but I simply cannot put more money in Zuck’s pockets in light of his continuing support and promotion of those who want to destroy our democracy, so I have dropped Instagram once and for all. I dropped Facebook years ago, thankfully. I miss all the people who only use Instagram now, but I have to go with my conscience. You can find me on Twitter, though!

PPS: Came across this on Tumblr, and wanted to pass it along! An easy way to donate to causes just by simply opening a browser tab! I haven’t tried it since I don’t have Chrome or Firefox, but I know a lot of you do. It’s called Tab for a Cause. Check it out!

Telegram, anyone?

I’ve been trying to think of an easier way to contact me for sessions, since some people need a session now, not later when I check my email or Instagram, and I remembered Telegram. It’s encrypted, so you’re not sharing your medical ailments with whomever is reading your texts as they wing their way across the Cortex (aka internet), and it doesn’t require sharing phone numbers to contact each other as Signal does. It also has a desktop mode, too, which is nice for oldie-moldies like me who still prefer them. 🙂

Telegram’s logo

What do you think? Would you use it to contact me?

In other news, we’re having weather! There are drops falling from the sky, and loud noises in the atmosphere! It’s glorious! It’s also cold. lol

Boy, I’ve missed rain.

Hope everyone is well and staying safe!

With love,

Pip 🙂
