The Healing Passage

What I have been doing lately. . .

Recuperating from a nasty flu bug. My husband came down with it first and I succumbed to it a few days later. The only good thing about being sick with the flu is that it forces you to slow down, rest and sleep.

When my husband was running 102 temperature, I began making soup, herbal teas, vegetable broths and tonics and stocking up just in case #1 care giver (me) ended up getting sick, which I did.

Meanwhile, I came across an old healing magazine published in 1976 that I subscribed to years ago when I was volunteering at an organic food co-opt in Hawaii. The little magazine was called Well~Being and I have managed to hang onto a couple of my favorites over the years.

I especially loved one of the articles titled “Caring For A Sick Friend”.  The author of the article is unknown however the graphics were by Rosalie Kessing. I still find the  information just as valid and important today as it was some thirty five years ago.

I’m sorry that the print and images are blurry but the  magazine is very old and the paper and print has faded somewhat over the years. I used Photo Shop to try and  make it a little more legible.

Another interesting article in the same magazine mentions how President Ford’s administration was making plans to inoculate everyone in the U.S. against a viral infection call “Swine Flu”.  Sound familiar! This article was published in August of 1976.

Although our home has given way to clutter and neglect with cough drops, kleenex, nasal spray and  empty  tea cups littering every tabletop, I have found a sense of peace and resignation that this too will pass.

Outside the sun is shining and I already feel a bit shinier because of it. xo

thought for the day;

“The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience.  Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around…. Throughout history, “tender loving care” has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing.”  ~ Larry Dossey

“Everyday Goddessing  is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess, a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us.” – Rose Arizmendi
