When Covid became a thing we all knew about, and a governor’s order closed my doors temporarily, A couple of months off to spend some time on projects that I’d been wanting to put my hand to for a long time was welcome. Extra sleep, creative pursuits, more exercise, all felt wonderful. I had enough to sustain myself and so just relaxed into the unknown of living in a global pandemic.
With the world in panic, it felt strangely curious to be so peaceful. I spent my morning walks “feeling” nature and the collective energy field of humans in general. There were days of intensely elevated collective reticular alert systems. And on some of those same days a deep feeling of calm and peace in nature.
Now here we are, and it’s been quite a lot longer than a couple of months. And in the quiet, reflections of my own are in focus. I had a feeling back in January that I wouldn’t work the same way in the future, that it would change in the year. And it has.
“Ok, so what’s next?” I asked. “How is this going to look next year?”
Well, I don’t have a clear cut picture to paint for you yet. But I do have clues, and paths I’m following, as I learn where and to what I’m being called. It’s a fascinating time for me, as well as practice trusting and relaxing with uncertainty. I’m having fun with that!
So I’m exploring Bach flower remedies, herbalism and remote work. I’m also working in-person out doors! That is so peaceful in the early mornings. Many people have said they like it much more than my office.
If you’re curious, Bach flower essences help you balance emotions. If you tend you be fearful or anxious or rigid, for example, they can help you ease into your balanced self. Mixing up custom blends for people and pets has been rewarding. My shy kitty is able to relax when someone less familiar comes into our space.
Herbalism is something I’ve long read about and been interested in studying. Now is the time! I’ll share more about it in future posts, and about the Bach remedies as well.
I’m sewing! I love linen and feel best when wearing natural fibers. It feels so good to wear something in my favorite fabric that I made. I’m collecting information about dying fabrics with plants as well. More on that later on.
I’ve been offered a lovely garden setting for outdoor sessions in the mornings, in-person. And I’m continuing to do the remote sessions in the afternoons. Both avenues have proven to be excellent ways of continuing to offer care.
I love the remote sessions for their ease of access. It’s so easy to find a comfy space at home, relax and experience an interactive session that brings you into your body as we both follow what your system shows you. The best part is that the “hands-on” contact is working well energetically. Yes, you can feel my “energy hands” as well as you can my physical ones. So cool!
As well, you can experience a peaceful Reiki session done remotely. We just check in by phone, have a little sharing time about your needs before the session, and then you relax and receive the healing supportive energy of Reiki. At home, you can just drift into a nap after!
It’s an interesting time finding out how I can still help people during Covid. I’m enjoying the time to learn and expand creatively. The days are more relaxed. My spiritual journey is deepening. And the simplicity of working with less stuff (office, etc.) is satisfying.
I hope you’ll follow along with me as I walk this new path.
