Can you feel that presence all around;
The push to sprout through hardened ground,
Migrating flocks with welcomed sounds,
The rays of warmth as Sun rebounds?
Have you ever stilled your mind to hear;
The shifts of energy so clear,
Vibrations building, in and near,
As every cell kicks into gear?
You're of that web, awakening;
The connection's found in everything,
Every seed and thought and trickling spring,
Holds power in the hope it brings.

Springtime is bursting to be let out, isn't it? Soon, all energy will bring an explosion of renewed "life" on the planet (or at least within the northern part) again! Even though I've been quite sick (auto-immune things) and haven't posted much recently, I want to share a few brief, but amazing, tidbits with you.
For years, I've been preaching about "how we're all connected" and how we truly DO influence things within and around us. Nothing could explain this better than the six-part documentary series on YouTube featuring jaw-dropping results from scientific experiments titled, "The Memory of Water". I urge everyone to view this and to share it with your children to provoke some deeper thought, discussions and contemplation of the significance our actions (and even our thoughts) may be having upon society and the Universe as a whole. Each video is about 15 minutes in length. If our actions and thoughts can influence water so profoundly, just imagine what we are doing to every "other" element and cell we share existence with...
In my own "awakening" for this Ostara (and throughout the year), I am digging into deeper studies and continued learning (we can never know it "all" or "stop learning", right?) with Meditation, Crystal Healing, and Herbal Healing. Have you noticed a theme there? Yes, healing. I am so exhausted from the chronic illnesses, continual pain and encounters with seemingly-indifferent doctors (since 1999) that I've vowed to take charge of my own healing. Dozens of (probably dangerous) medications have gone into my system and nothing has helped me enough to comment on, so I began a detox of "chemicals" (especially man-made tablet-formed ones) about five months ago.
Anyway, I'd like to give a huge shout out right here to those dedicated and gifted folks who devote their time and energy to bring healing to others - even from a distance! I've experienced the results recently myself and was simply in awe! Temporal Healing offers a holistic approach with a wide array of healing options, elixirs and even training in the healing arts to help elevate you to a higher plane - beyond seasonal depression, chronic pain and much more!
Currently, I'm partway through the FREE 21-Day Meditation Challenge by Deepak Chopra and sponsored by Oprah Winfrey entitled "Perfect Health" (there is still time to join in, if you're interested), and have been looking further into the teachings of Susun Weed after listening to a free teleseminar she conducted the other night hosted by John Gallagher from LearningHerbs. Oh, I can't forget that I've placed an order for some promising powdered supplements from thee source Susun recommended for herbal supplies, Mountain Rose Herbs.
Here is to your healing and mine! Have a Blessed Ostara and a promising "Awakening" this spring!
