Sometimes Life Sucks!

I am an optimistic and positive person by nature and that is why I have survived all of the challenges I have experienced but I have to tell you,

*There is a lot that sucks about having a tumor on the back of your heart!
*There is a lot that sucks about having 5 heart attacks and recovering from them.
*There is a lot that sucks about having open heart surgery and recovering from it. Like having your chest and sternum sawed open.
* There is a lot that sucks about arguing with doctors who want you to take a handful of pharmaceuticals and tell you you will die if you don’t when you know your body would heal using natural medicine.
*There is a lot that sucks about not having a partner to support you through it. When I am on the ledge and no one is around I…

Parathyroid Tumor Be Gone

Many of my readers know my story about the parathyroid tumor that is in a rare position behind my heart. Story here

I had an emotional week last week because I was supposed to go in for the scan of the Parathyroid Tumor on Monday and if it was still there I would have been scheduled for surgery. This issue hadn’t even been in my consciousness for months.

After the scan was scheduled I went into fear because I felt I had to resign myself to the fact I would have to go through major surgery again. I had tried fundraising last fall to get the funds to do an alternative treatment but only raised enough to do a month. One month was not enough.

To be honest it scares me to have to go through this rare surgery to retrieve the tumor from behind my heart.

The Circle of Health and Wellness

887CF4EE-2DC8-46C0-B074-E0F566A1E635

This happened on Monday. I wasn’t going to post it but there is something here that might touch someone else.

We help each other return to wholeness and health through our connection, support and compassion.

I was blessed by a circle of women last night focused on healing the parathyroid tumor that is still present on the back of my heart.

We all held the vision of me being in the vibration of perfect health and wellness and that intention included all of us. My secondary intention was to accept the process and outcome that unfolds.

The circle took place in my new Creative Classroom which is like a temple and sanctuary.

The power of my sisters and the presence of spirit helpers was palpable. The room was full of energy. Most of my friends met for the first time last night yet everything just flowed without preparation as we all became sisters.

Because I am a visionary, I had visions.

Here are some of the symbolic things that happened:
It was a new moon, the time to plant and nurture new seeds and intentions. The perfect environment to support us.

At the beginning and the end a cardinal sang its song. The cardinal is a positive sign from the Divine. Blessing the beginning and the end of the circle.

I saw the eye of Horus which is an ancient sign of healing.

I had a vision of being in the embrace of Ganesh, who is the remover of obstacles. He placed his truck on the back of my heart where the tumor would be and sucked. That was A very powerful image for me.

At one point the woman chanted the AH sound which is the heart sound and it reminded me that when I was between the ages of 4 and 8 I would sit on the couch and rock while sing this sound. I did this a few times a day and I feel it was my way of coming back to my center. I will be working with this chant.

I know that what is in my highest and best will be what happens.

The next day I painted the vision. What a fortune blessing that I have this ability to paint like this.

Opening the Heart

I like to look at my paintings in groups after they were painted because it gives me so much insight into my personal process. The paintings come from a higher realm in my consciousness to they aren’t created out of thinking.

These three for example. The one on the lower right was the first of the three. You can see that the heart is just a seed beginning to sprout. In the upper right it’s a cocoon with a door opening to release the butterflies.

The painting on the left, that I did today, is the real heart, fully open and expressing its radiant energy and beauty. The third eye is open and energy is coming from the throat as well.

The painting had to go through different phases as I did the same.

What do you notice that I might have missed.

The World is Waiting for the Authentic You.

Let the world see who you truly are. There is NO ONE else like you. There is no one to compete with or compare yourself to. Share the gift that only you can share.

It all comes down to self love. Once we truly love ourselves life gets easier and we can shine and share our authentic self.

I mean truly love ourselves not just give lip service to it. Oh it’s easy to say, “ Sure, I love myself” but saying it and really feeling it deep within and believing it are two different things.

Can you love yourself when you “screw up”?
Can you love yourself when you are sick and really need your love?
Can you love yourself when you feel alone?
Can you love yourself when you can’t pay your bills?
Can you love yourself when your world seems to be falling apart.

Loving your shouldn’t be based on outside circumstances.

Giving up was not an option

I am writing this to remind myself…

There was a point in my health journey where I had not only lost my health but also my savings and my livelihood. It was about 8 months in that my savings was gone, my successful career was gone and all of my credit cards were maxed out from basic living and medical bills. This was probably the most stressful time in my life.

But something kept pulling me forward. The pull was my purpose. My purpose this lifetime has always been to create art that had a positive, transformational impact. Writing, which is part of that purpose came later. I write from the same place as I paint.

This is to say that when I was at my lowest lows, I still could paint and I still could write and those two things pulled me through. I could also see there would…

Its my nature to think differently, challenge the status quo and come up with new, innovative ways of looking at things. I have done it since I was a child, it’s just my nature. I always felt there were more than one way to look at things and I was going to find them. That is what made me a good therapist. It is also what makes my art so unique.

I just thought that was how the brain worked. I didn’t understand that it was a unique gift, though over the years people would tell me I thought differently. I always thought to myself, doesn’t everyone?

About 5 days before I had the first of three heart attacks a friend did a interview quiz with me that was supposed to hone in on my Why.  The results were that I naturally think differently and challenge the status quo. From…
