Grieving a Complicated Relationship

I am a little less than a month out from the passing of my biological mom. I am writing this to help with my own processing and if I can help someone along the way who needs these words (which are usually not spoken out loud) or validation - then this will not have been written in vain.

It will be helpful to know that I only lived with my mom for 5 years of my life. From birth to 4 and then from 13 to 14. The rest of that time I only saw her in short bursts. A friend of my mom's sent me this picture shortly after she passed. When I first saw it - I burst into maniacal laughter (which was so like something my mom would do) - it reminded me of a scene in Sweet Home Alabama - "You have a baby - in a bar" only this would read "You have a baby - and a beer". This picture speaks a thousand words. And reinforces an old story I told myself for decades.

While I was in the pit I remembered that a pretty huge trauma happened to me on Mother’s Day several years ago (which can happen when your vibration is low – your...

AUTUMN CLEANSE – LUNGS & LARGE INTESTINE

Cleanse disclaimer: Before I jump into the nitty gritty of how to best support the lungs and large intestine. I want to address how important it is to have a COLON that is functioning and healthy. As we support these different organs and begin to cleanse them, they will be releasing toxins into the system…you do NOT want them to be STUCK in your body. So get the plumbing working well before you start on anything else. There are MANY colon supporting products that YL offers: The Cleansing Trio (ICP ComforTone and Essentialzyme) Digest & Cleanse, Life 9, Essentialzymes 4, and Detoxyme to name a few.  Ok…detox disclaimer out of the way….moving on. 

How many people do you know who are coughing right now? I am raising both hands. I had personal interest in this research. I am praying this is as helpful to you as it was to me. I am loving the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach because it takes into account the entire person: body, mind, and...
