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!
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 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.
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!
I’ll be honest: I had grand plans of cleaning the house top-to-bottom, decluttering like mad, doing stuff in the yard…and I haven’t done a thing. I have simply been exhausted, so very, very exhausted mentally and physically, that I pretty much either read or check Twitter for what’s going on. I’ve run exactly two errands since March 18th, and so am doing my best to stay safe in the midst of others who aren’t as safety conscious. It’s frustrating and scary. Dayna, of The People’s Oracle, posted this on Twitter:
“This morning I’m think about men. Women’s friendships tend to be intimate, flexible, and resilient, making this moment generally easier for us to stay connected.
But what about men, whose friendships tend to be centered around activities.
Men, how are y’all holding up?”
Excellent point because the men (not all men, just the ones I know) are acting as if everything is normal, visiting friends and family, high fives, no 6′, no masks….
I’m still trying to make an income, and waiting to see if unemployment is ok’d. All I really want to do is just sit in the sun and send light to people to help them during this awful time (I did send some to help bolster a person’t lungs and it calmed her, too). I’m actually considering making a Facebook account…ick…because Twitter is not, at this time, the place to promote yourself. It’s a cacophony of anger and fear and news and people trying to stay calm and hold steady. So very much going on there.
I’ve read through all the light romances that I have (I love Jenny Colgan!), and am now diving into my fantasy collection. Charles deLint FTW.
I’m being lazy, I fully admit it. I feel lost, scared, and almost incapable of doing more than shower, feed the critters, and sometimes eat. Someone going by Pastor Bae (@lyvonnep) tweeted today,
“this is not “business as usual.”
you are not a business.
you are not your busyness.
you are human.
we are human beings.
let us get back to being.
being is enough.”
That’s about all I can do right now. You? How are you handling staying at home?
As I mentioned in my last post, I’m researching better marketing and other things to help build my business, and one of the things I was wondering is which social media sites are the most used? Facebook is first, across the board, but every other site changes rank depending on which site you read.
For instance, this site ranks YouTube 2nd and Instagram 3rd, with Twitter 6th and Tumblr 10th; this has YouTube 2nd, WhatsApp 3rd, Twitter not even on the list (?!), Instagram 6th, and Tumblr 8th, while yet another has Instagram 2nd, Twitter 3rd, and Tumblr 4th.
Who do you believe?? How do you choose the best platforms for your business in that case? I read alot that you should use the platform that has your tribe, the one where prospective clients hang out. But how do you know which one that is until you try all of them?? And then there’s living your values, and one of mine is not using Facebook. I still wrestle with Instagram – pictures are fun and everyone is on it! – but still, the work I do doesn’t lend itself well to pictures, and there’s always that white supremacist running the show aspect to deal with.
How did you decide on the platforms you use? Do you use ones you don’t really want to use because of the ‘everyone is on it’ aspect? What happened to Pinterest? Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂
One last question: where do you feel blogging plays in to all of this? Is it the most important tool in your business? Is it email marketing? Newsletters? None of the above?
This morning I was reading through a notebook I have, filled with scribbles and quotes and manifestos, all relating to my energy-shifting work. Some ideas popped into my head, but I got a bit overwhelmed and decided to check Twitter.
I have two accounts, one public, and every single time I read that one, my head wants to explode with regards to what is going on in this country and how excellently someone’s diversionary tactics are working. People miss the true stories in the flurry.
Every day there are more and more horrors being perpetrated without repercussions, climate change is beyond ignoring, and every single one of us, even those who try to ignore it all, are affected.
All this stress and anxiety is wearing on us, bit by bit, and sometimes it feels as if there’s no way to deal with it.
I can help. No, I can’t fix the current administration, nor can I cure your chronic anxiety or depression, but I can give you a bit of relief for a while.
You don’t have to drive anywhere (though I would recommend not driving during your session), wear anything special, stop what you’re doing (you can, obviously, if you like)…heck, you don’t even have to believe in energetic shifting! No matter what you do or believe, it always help you in some way; sometimes in big, obvious ways, and sometimes in light, subtle ways (check out my Testimonials page to see how it has affected people).
30-minute sessions are $30. We can go longer if you’d like, or if you really want a deep shift, there’s my favorite session, Dare the Possibilities (this one tends to put people to sleep for the deep healing boost).
All you need to do is make your payment here (put your email address in the notes just in case, please!), and I’ll contact you within 24 hours and we’ll set up a time! Easy-peasy. 🙂
Which is why I haven’t posted in so long. There’s too much to say, too much horror going on in the world and this country, too much…everything. What do you say to all that?
So I sit and retweet things on Twitter because others are saying it all and there’s nothing I can add to it. I cry and my heart breaks more and more each day. And don’t say “we aren’t this”. Obviously a vast amount of us ARE. And admit it, we always have been. We just sugarcoat things in history books and the news and to ourselves. Humans have an innate fear of things we don’t understand, and that turns to violence and rage and wars and murder and the list goes on and on.
Not totally, but in many ways. Think about those little comments you say in your head when you see someone different, you know, the ones you would never say out loud because they aren’t nice things to say. It’s almost an unconscious act to have those thoughts. The problem is when people act upon them. Then the shit hits the damned fan and we end up with concentration camps (again…don’t forget that we’ve had them before; no ovens doesn’t mean they weren’t) and the government we have because they freaked out over a black president (what nerve he had!, they think)…
So…maybe not so much at a loss for words.
And this wasn’t even meant to be the focus of this post! I’m having a fibro flare like never before, and I am lost in the pain. Swimming in it. Someone get me the hell out of this pool, please. I’m reading fibro blogs, and something not in the slightest bit important jumped out at me: I like to read blogs, if they aren’t decades old, from the beginning if they interest me. Please, PLEASE put a calender widget in your sidebar! I read a post, hit ‘back’, and then have to scroll through the entire blog to get back to where I was. Over and over. ETA: discovered that if I read them via WordPress Reader, I can scroll through all the post. Win!
I’m just sayin…
I’m too tired to eat properly, which isn’t helping at all, and I’m not sleeping enough, again, not helping, and I sit and read Twitter and blogs. I haven’t had a healing light client in months, which hurts my soul (honestly. I’m great at my day job, but it doesn’t feed my purpose in life), and this week, due to this flare, I won’t have a paycheck next week. Fun times.
OH, and I keep coming across people noticing that things they are doing online (and of course on their phones) are showing up as ads on FB and IG. Even from text messages. I re-upped IG recently because “everyone is on it and it’s the biggest marketing tool out there”…but those niggling feelings, coupled with our government now, has me planning to drop it again. Not that Twitter isn’t checking out our shit, too, I know. Stonekettle says that CounterSocial is a bullshit/Nazi/troll-free site, similar to Twitter, but you know how it goes…getting people to shift to something new is harder than getting that fake dude out of that office he didn’t actually win.
My word for next year is, as mentioned before, transformation, but how I want to feel is just as important, thanks to Danielle LaPorte. Last night I was pondering the idea, and “lighter” popped into my head. Lighter physically, emotionally… just in every way. Life has become heavy and I want to let that go.
“Comfort” was the next word, and then another popped in, and before I knew it the words from the definition of hygge that I found “comfort, joy, and courage” completed the list. Four simple words that mean so much to me.
And the thing is, by feeling those three words, I’ll feel lighter, too!
Do you use feelings as your guiding light in life? Not in the Law of Attraction way, but just as signposts to help you along your path? What words come to mind for next year?
PS: On Twitter GetGonetheMovi1 posted a response to Ed Solomon’s tweet concerning the correct pronunciation of Happy New Year (I can’t find his tweet now and suspect it was deleted because people took it seriously), and now I can’t get it out of my head. I’ve been adding specific calendars to it, so, Joyous Gregorian Calendar Renewal to you! 🙂 Let’s hope next year is better beyond imagination!
I wanted to write a blog post today, but nothing seemed important enough (that could be the problem…it shouldn’t need to be “important”), and then there was a tweet from The Bloggess about this post, “Let’s Be Friends“. So now I’m reading the comments, checking blogs, and following new people. All hail the #bloggesstribe!
