Good Medicine

Thank you in several languages in a heart shape | Words, Thankful, Language

Yep, we need a holy day to remember to Give Thanks. Gratitude is more than just a hallmark catchphrase. It’s a way of life; an attitude, a habit that we have to train ourselves to practice so we can build up our appreciation like a muscle. And what I’m finding is that it may actually change the perception of my well-being.

When I’m feeling overwhelmed by the plandemic – all the vicissitudes it has brought to our sense of reality, I take a breath & thank my lucky stars that I can apply Spiritual Science to my heart-thinking. And I remember that this is the ultimate testing ground, where we all agreed to meet. Our ‘truth or dare’ stage where discernment, equanimity, love, reverence/wonder, hope, & the power of peace must come into play.

I know sometimes it feels like we are hell-bent on heading straight into the abyss – it’s all too easy to get discouraged & spiral into the negative, cynical scenarios.

Naming the shadow has its time & place, but if it pulls us too deep into discord or depression, this shrinks our heart-health, bringing more inflammation & a weaker immune system – Eclipsing the veracity of our collective power which we can access with every positive, thanks-giving, visualization.  

Gratitude, dear friends is good medicine for everything that ails us.  It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Together we set the table for a feast of divine fulfillment.

See you there

My friends & family have often said I should do a podcast. Chuck my beloved husband, bought me a cool microphone cause he likes to hear my POD (Poem Of the Day) read out loud. He told me about a site called Anchor FM, which shares the podcasts on other platforms like Spotify. And so I have taken up this new adventure into the world of the Spoken Word, naming the podcast: ‘I THINK SPEECH‘.

Episode 16: How to Change Your Mind

I am thinking to do the 1st 3 podcasts as a background for our Thought-Seed Project. I have 2 up so far. I end each session with a POD, but Chuck said I should do those 1st thing, so I’ll try that next. The links will be accessible in the right hand column. The 2nd of the series gives the low-down on the idea of a Egregore. Let me know what it’s like to have me ringing in your ears…? xox


Holy Spirit – Art & Theology

POD (Poem Of the Day)

~O offerers of cake & bearers of bounty
let me not starve for love or thirst for wisdom…
let my spirit bee stronger today than it was yesterday,
my heart more peaceful, my mind more fertile, my hands happy with purpose…
may the Goddess touch my face
