How Did I Get Here?

Hey! Did you Google Heart’s Peace Healing and find yourself here?

You’re in the right place! I integrated my healing website into this site because of the very, very large WordPress community. I like interaction, and comments are given here and not on Weebly, sadly. It’s a great platform, and I will miss it.

Look around, check out the menu and the different pages, read the blog…have fun! And thanks for stopping by!

Essential Tremor and Healing

*I was moving some of the more interesting blog posts from my now-defunct other website to here. This is from September 2017.*

In my bios across social media, I state that I live with essential tremor (or on the shorter bios, just have #essentialtremor), but I don’t think many people really know what that is, or what it looks like. Tremors come in many shapes and forms, including Parkinson’s, but the type I have affects my hands and arms – and in extreme stress, my head and voice. Katharine Hepburn had essential tremor, though almost all reports mislabeled it Parkinson’s.

I’ve been sick with bronchitis the past two weeks, and as always, medications mess with my tremors. Even ones that are for tremors!! I had hoped to go into work today, not only to give the poor man who is covering my days a break, but because bills don’t stop for illness. 😉

Instead, this is how my day is going, and will until my meds are gone in another week or two. And there’s no guarantee that they will calm back down after the meds are gone, either. Last time it took months.

On the cool side, when I send someone energy (and especially in person), sometimes it feels like an internal energetic massage, and from what I hear, feels really good!

Life’s never boring, is it? 😉

2018 Word for the Year

I try to choose a word as my guide, my affirmation, my mantra each year, and this year I didn’t have to think twice because it popped into my head as soon as I thought about next year’s.

It’s thrive. I want to thrive. Not just monetarily, which is the first thing that comes to mind, but in all ways. In my health, my relationships, my day job, my healing work, my writing, my creativity (which has been sadly neglected for way, way too long)…everything. Every single aspect of my life.

I am acting as if today, Yule/Winter Solstice, is New Year’s Day (would make sense, wouldn’t it, as today the days begin to grow longer again here in the Northern Hemisphere) and made one big step towards improving my health. It’s a big step, a hard step, and something that I haven’t been to sustain in the past, so I’m not really going to get into it until around my birthday in March. 🙂

~ I love that image, and the article by Stephanie Woodfield that talks about her. Her name means, “never not broken.” ~

I’m diving back into Leonie Dawson’s world, simply because she has been so wildly successful, and it’s really all been based on the fact that she never pretends to be someone she’s not. I tend to try to fit a persona that I think others expect, and that never goes well for me…hence the revisiting of her website. I can be me quite easily in my locked social media account, but not so well elsewhere. My goal is to change that.

I plan to move my healing website here, simply because of WordPress’s community aspect, which, sadly, Weebly does not have. I’ll be creating a static front page, then migrating the healing the content over here into individual subpages.

There’s more, but you get the jist. Do you choose a word for the year to guide you? What’s your word? Comment below!!

Long time, no see…

I haven’t written here since August?? Wow, I didn’t realize it had been so long. I sit down to write, but nothing comes to mind…there’s so much going on in the world and so much stress we’re all dealing with, and I easily get swept up in the despair and fear. Which leaves not a lot of anything in my mind worth publishing here.

My intention this year was to find one or two platforms to hang out on, rock them, and grow my healing business. Instead, I’m all over the place, jumping from one to another (hello, Pisces), and nothing is growing.

I do miss writing, so you’ll forgive me if this becomes more like a LiveJournal blog than a purpose-driven one. Maybe by having this as the focal point, I will be able to shift through the rest of the sites and figure out where I really, truly want to hang out. Twitter, my go-to, is filled with all the horrors of this year; Instagram, while void of the horror, implemented FB’s stupid algorithm, and when you log in, posts from 4+ days ago show up. It’s incredibly annoying, and I find that many pictures aren’t showing up in my feed, just as posts don’t show up on FB (which I do NOT use). I’m trying Tumblr again, but not sure how that will go: I really just chose it because chronological timelines are still intact there. It may not last, because what the hell am I thinking, adding another iron in the fire??

Hunh…it feels like I’m so many other places, but that must be because of the social media work I do for a friend, which adds a few more accounts to my plate. There is my healing website, but I haven’t blogged anything there for months, either. Right now it’s pretty much just a static site.

I would love nothing more than to step away from everything until the new year, but it’s not possible. Are you feeling overwhelmed, too? How do you handle it and still stay connected?

I guess the real question is, why do we feel we MUST stay connected? 99% of the people I follow are ones I will most likely never meet in person. So what feeds the need to interact as we all do, following more and more people, friending more and more…why? How close are we really, when it come right down to it?

I’m just rambling here, trying to get my mind used to writing again, so apologies if this is a bit disjointed. 🙂
