Healing may not be so much about getting better,

as about letting go of everything that isn’t you –

all of the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are.”

book touch of healing

This is a great book to add to your self-energy healing collection. We have already looked at Jin Shin Jyutsu® practice called cable-jumping using the fingers. The author Alice Burmeister with Tom Monte shows how one can balance disharmony by holding their fingers.

Later this week we will start looking at benefits of cable-jumping our toes. And in the future, we will look at the practice of revitalizing our entire being with the centers of the palms and the soles.

Blossoming Quote

There came a time

when the risk to remain tight in the bud

was more painful

than the risk it took to blossom.

~Anais Nin

My healing wish for all women today is to look for your butterfly, be open to your dreams and blossom.

the knitting circle explores healing strand women share

Sometimes it takes a novel based on a strand that connects women together on their journey through emotional upheaval to their solutions, that might inspire us to look at new ways to move through our own fear, grief, and disappointment, towards healing.

This is a story about an active woman that couldn’t work through her grief or be around her work associates, family or friends after she lost her only child. She finally had to try something that was totally out of her comfort zone (knitting).  This new challenge kept her mind quiet while learning to cast on, knit, pearl, and allow the strand of pain to unravel while being with the knitting circle.

Reading a good book is a great way you can start unraveling some bound up emotions which will help bring you balance and harmony. 

Women's call to power for balanceThe following is from Good Reads book review: 

“From Sharon McErlane’s book, “A Call to Power, the Grandmothers Speak,” a global movement has developed to “cast a net of light” to activate and anchor the Feminine.  Learn about empowerments, meditations and monthly messages from the Grandmothers. Desperate times call for something new.  As humans stand at the edge of the precipice, the winds of change blasting our backs, the universe throws us a lifeline.  Help has appeared in the form of wise old women, the Great Council of the Grandmothers.  “The present imbalance of energy of Earth has placed all life in danger”,  the Grandmothers declare.  “It is time to return to balance, and for this, women must lead.  Women must be empowered. This is why we have come.”  The Grandmothers have come to awaken the presence of the deep feminine, to bring men and women and all life back into harmony.  A Call to Power is the story of the author’s encounters with these wise women and the powerful and important message they bring.”

I feel so strongly the importance of the feminine energy is needed to bring balance NOW!  Please join me by sending long distance love and compassion to all in Boston.  I share your anger and sadness, but only the feminine power of love can conquer hate.   Here is the website for the http://grandmothersspeak.com/.

Acupressure by Jacqueline Young

Acupressure Simple Steps to Health by Jacqueline Young was originally published in 1994. My copy is the 2001 edition. Jacqueline Young is a practitioner of Oriental medicine who spent many years training and working in the Far East. She now teaches, lectures, and writes about traditional health techniques and natural therapies.

I enjoy experimenting and sharing with clients the benefits of acupressure..  Acupressure can open the flow of energy that is currently disrupted and help bring the body back to balance.  I refer to this book because it is so easy to follow and understand the techniques used for designated treatments.  If you have a strong interest in learning more about acupressure, I highly recommend shopping your local Half Price Book Store for a copy.
