This is one of the pantoums I wrote to apply for a fellowship program to Prague. Writing a pantoum is no easy task, I will say. Writing one is a challenge; writing 18 ( which I did) is another matter. Manik is one of the 20 Mayan birth signs.
Manik, Blue Hand,
The true nature of
rests in your gateway.
The true nature of
inventiveness and completion
rests in your gateway,
with your graceful tools.
Inventiveness and completion
your graceful tools
that feel, heal, and know.
a fluid life process
that feels, heals, and knows.
A dance to wholeness emerges.
A fluid life process
uses intent, focus, and commitment.
A dance to wholeness emerges,
Using intent, focus, and commitment,
Manik, Blue Hand,
supply the satisfaction

I decided to search for something on my computer. I found this gem. Had to publish here.
Ms. Plath and I have quite a friendship. Sometimes she appears at my door. Anyone who knows me well or know about her will know what I am talking about.
I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful –
The eye of a little god, four-cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.
Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
Searching my reaches for what she really is.
Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon.
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully.
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.
I am important to her. She comes and goes.
Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness.
In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman
Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish.

I have read many, many articles on managing anxiety. When I saw this one in my email today, I thought
” ok. Let’s see if there is anything worthy in here…. ” not really believing that there would be….
But I was pleasantly surprised. I think my favorite is #1…. but they all have merit. I also did #5. I took a very short walk to the mailbox and this, for someone who has NOT been able to do this in a very long time ( 8 weeks? due to the neurotransmitters in my brain not transmitting the right signals for walking to my legs) this was a major accomplishment.) I literally FORCED myself to do this… because I was going to attempt this walk earlier in the morning, but I was too unstable and too afraid of falling. Plus I did it without using my Mountainsmith http://mountainsmith.com/index.php/trekking-poles.html#page=1trekking poles, well, at least on the way to the box, but not back because I had to walk up a very slight incline. The other good news about this walk that there was mostly junk in the mailbox. So easy– to sort through….. :-)My trekkers have been such a lifesaver. I originally bought them to walk on the trail(s) in and around Palos Hill, IL, and on those jaunts I experienced some lovely moments, sights, and surprises. You can read more about that a bit here…http://www.blurb.com/b/770786-chasing-magick-book-1To this article on anxiety I would add having Kava Stress Relief tea on hand. http://www.amazon.com/Yogi-Kava-Stress-Relief-Bags/dp/B0009F3QKW The flavor on this tea is…. a bit unusual, but it does the job. You can get this tea at any good health food store or Whole Foods.

I am on a Bruce Lipton roll today. What an engaging speaker who truly knows his stuff and also is funny and totally authentic.
At the 37:00 minute point, he starts to talk about ” super learning” … which is all about energy psychology and EFT as well as other modalities that are on that same page…
This a video that deserves immediate attention because he discusses how our world is already moving toward extinction. Then he discusses ( a bit later on ) how the millenials are not buying into any of the ” programs” that currently run our world today. Perhaps, there IS hope for the world to not self destruct in two years time… ( or even less…).

What role does your emotions and symptoms play on your body?.
I adore Dr. Bruce Lipton.
Which is saying a lot bc I am not a fan of doctors, bc most of them have gotten caught up in the trap of BIG PHARMA ( read: MONEY) and also don’t want to be challenged on anything at all.
There is an exception ( for me) that I do follow though…. If you are in a bad car accident… those doctors are I think on the up and up. Because it is their to save your life, so to speak, no matter how big or small. In the case of my accident, though, it was a pretty easy call. I was T- boned ( driver side) and in a sense it was a no brainer for the doctors. They knew what to immediately check for , which was my lungs, which had collapsed ( the one on the left) , even though I couldn’t detect any difference in the immediate hours after the accident in my breathing.
But I will say this too, I didn’t blindly lie there and think to myself ” ok doctors fix me.” NO. I GOT BUSY. I TOOK ACTION. I STARTED DOING EFT IMMEDIATELY. Did it in the ambulance, in the hospital, and any time I was sittlng there waiting, which is a given when you are there. In fact, I was educating the emergency technicians while on the way to the hospital. More on that later, and this too– ” Why are emergency technicians always cute/ hot/gorgeous/beautiful?” I ain’t complaining tho… I LOVE EYE CANDY….
