Buy a Session, Help a Family

Hey, all.

My friend’s husband died last week, and they are trying to raise money for his cremation, service, and to help with medical expenses on GoFundMe.

Ron and his granddaughter.

If you purchase a Dare Session, I will donate the FULL amount to the fund, and you will get a free Dare Session (of equal price) as a gift for helping. You can use it for yourself (I’d recommend at least 6 months between sessions. Maybe even a year.)

Bringing Back A Favorite Distance Healing Session

Yesterday I did a favorite distance session for someone in the Norway, and she responded with, “First, I cried, then I felt like I was being aired out, and now I’m so tired I can’t even make myself go to bed, lol.” I smiled for a long time after reading that! 🙂

I love this session because not only does it help people get some rest, but it works on a deep level that plays out over time. You may not connect the changes back to the session, but that’s ok, your Higher Self knows. 🙂

This is what I wrote about it in 2016 when I resurrected it from 2013 (and yes, the pricing is the same):

Are you ready for a change?

Later on I’m going to make a separate page in the menu for this session alone, that way it’s easy to find and more people can learn about it!

I’m looking forward to doing a lot of these sessions!!

Much love!

To Newsletter or Not to Newsletter

I have one. It’s on TinyLetter, which is part of MailChimp and soon will be integrated into MailChimp and be gone (though I’m sure the newsletter will look a lot fancier on MC). I’m not sure how I feel about having one. “Everyone” says it’s a must to grow followers and, hopefully, clientele, but does it really? How many of you subscribe to a newsletter and then actually read it? Where I worked until recently, the newsletter list was in the thousands, yet less than 500 opened them each month. Even though there were discounts and news about classes or book-signings, etc.

So what do you guys think? Should I get to work on it again, or let it go and give you all the news here instead of your inbox?

March…

What a month. Not my favorite March ever, that’s for sure, but far from the worst at the same time. If you’re an astrology buff, then Mercury Retrograde is kicking my ass, and hasn’t stopped. Not an astrology buff? Well, then, this month just bit. It’s as simple as that.

On the good side, things around here have been blooming like mad for a few weeks, and this is one of my favorite spring sights every year:

Yep, that’s my local grocery story. It’s always so pretty in March!!

I’ve had plenty of time to enjoy the seasonal changes, partly due to the social media break, and partly because I’m enjoying (can you sense the sarcasm?) a new fibromyalgia issue: headaches, dizziness, and nausea. Just all of a sudden I woke up with a horrid case of all 3 last Saturday, and every day since has had some degree of them. I did some research, and while the all-over pain is the most common symptom of fibro, these symptoms are pretty much next in line. There’s a way to help alleviate them called Trigger Point Massage (this website is great!) and I’ve been doing the massage, but it’s not quite kicking it, so ugh. Yesterday was a bad day*, so I spent most of it outside in the sun, reading. My hair hasn’t been this short in eons, so I completely didn’t think about my ears; I believe I may have sunburned the tips!

The urge to check Twitter has gone away, but the urge to tweet hasn’t. My head is filled with things like:

“My doctor rocks!”

“Two hawks just flew overhead, and then a raven. And then another raven. #birdwatch”

“Oooh, if you’re in Maryland, check out a new exhibit that my friend Michael is part of! #boostthesignal”

“I took all the apps off my phone, and now I barely touch it. Why do I have a smartphone?”

Random stuff like that. Instead, it swims around in my head until something else catches my attention. It’s kind of weird how the internet has done that to us, isn’t it?

I’ve been reading more blogs (when I do get online), and I’m really enjoying that. I’ve also read 3 books in as many days. 😉

Tomorrow night I’m doing a distance healing session, and yesterday I had an in-person very, very short one (it was for as long as I could stand up without getting dizzy). I’m so happy that I’m still being asked to help others; it really makes my day.

Much love!

*People with fibro have “flares”, days when things are really, really bad. At this point, I’m calling the bad headache/dizziness/nausea days that term, because they really, really suck.

 

 

Challenge Accepted

I know this may come as a surprise, but the purpose of having a blog is to, well, blog. I know, right?? Who knew? 🤣 I’ll be spending the next 6 weeks or so (until May 1) focusing all my attention here, on my blog. Blogging. No Twitter, no Tumblr, no Instagram commenting…just blogging.

It’s going to be like a LiveJournal revival – ok, maybe not – but it will be blogging old-school; life stuff, pictures, things I find interesting, books I’m reading. Forget trying to promote myself*; I want to have fun and find my voice again, not just rt and reblog things.

Check out what my gorgeous Osho Zen deck had to say about it this morning:

Yeah, this deck gets me. 😎

I’m following those of you who have blogs that I know of, but just in case I’m missing a few, let me know your blog address and I’ll follow along! Maybe you’ll get excited about blogging again, too!

Here’s to going old-school! 🍻 (that’s supposed to be two beer mugs, clinking together…not sure if it looks like that or not)

Much love!

*I am still doing energy work, so feel free to check into that side of my website, too!

PS: I also really, really need a break from all the news, especially on Twitter. Major overload. I think that’s where the ‘healing’ comes into play in the cards above.

 

Calgon Isn’t Helping Anymore

Found this on Instagram as I was deleting the app from my phone:

And yeah…

So much has been going on since my last post, and every time I sit down to write, you know what stops me? SEO. Thinking that I need to write the perfect subject line for SEO. I don’t know about y’all, but it is, as she says, exhausting.

Also, really? Doctor branding?? Just help me feel better, gorramit!!

So simple things first:

Twitter. Still using it, but a bit less because the news is so overwhelming and I’m in complete despair about the direction our country is taking. It was mentioned by a coworker that every single healer he knew has been sick since last year in one way or another. I hear that. Bronchitis twice, abscessed tooth that caused my face to swell up like a grapefruit, and the kicker…I have fibromyalgia.

Yep. I’m a spoonie. And let me tell you: finding out that I have fibro explained SO much that I thought was simply attributed to stress, age, and other things. It’s both a relief and well, it’s fibro. Not much to do about it. Add in my tremors, and medication isn’t really an option. When your mom, who has been sick for 30 years, tells you, “Wow, you’re really fucked up!”, you know shit has done hit the fan. 😉

As a result of being sick so often, I was let go from my job the day before my birthday. *heavy sigh* It was a relief on one hand, because I was causing so much annoyance and disruption by missing days, and on the other hand, well, there went my income. Unemployment is…we won’t even talk about it. I do enjoy being able to pace myself as the day goes on, and I take a lot more “reading breaks”…aka sitting in the sun for hours with a good book…than I was able to before. It’s helping.

It also means I have more time to do lightwork, so that makes me happy. BTW, did you notice that I changed the look of the blog? I think it’s a bit more device-friendly now.

Instagram. Well, after FB’s latest shitstorm, I removed the app from my phone (because that means all the data they’ve already mined will disappear, right? Yeah, I know…nothing like shutting the barn door AFTER the horses have escaped), but I’ve kept the account for those who only use Instagram and no other platform. I just log in from the desktop.

Tumblr. Giving it another whirl, and so far, I like it. I couldn’t use “This Hobbit’s Life” as the username, so I went with the one I chose for Twitter. A little continuity there. The cool thing about Tumblr is that it seems to be a creative space, lots of authors and artists (and witches…oh my goodness, the number of witches!), and three of my favorite authors are there –  Neil Gaiman, N. K. Jemisin, and Claudia Wair (you haven’t heard of my dear friend Claudia? You will!). I’m sure there are more, but I haven’t come across them yet.

—oh, wait, I just went to copy Claudia’s link, and she’s not on Tumblr now. Here’s her website. Keep your eye on her! You can follow her on Twitter, and Instagram, and sign up for her newsletter!

I’m planning to use Tumblr as most use Instagram, mixed in with tweet-like posts. It’s fun! I don’t think I’m going to send these posts there, though. I haven’t decided if I find that annoying or not. I only have 9 followers there, so it may help get me more, but we’ll see.

All in all, I think that’s everything since last I wrote. I hope everyone is well – I’ve been bad about checking in to WP and reading blogs of late.

Much love!

I’ve Been Raging At THAT MAN For Too Long

Ever since the election, I’ve been in a state of, well, quite frankly, “Define Interesting.” “Oh god, oh god, we’re all gonna die.”* Rage, fear, stress, depression, despair, helplessness…you name it. So many of us have been – and it’s draining us.

I’ve been caught in the quicksand, unable to pull myself out, finding myself retweeting post after post, unable to step back and not feed the beast. I didn’t know how else to make a difference, but I think in reality, I was just another person making things a little bit worse with the endless focus on the negative. I haven’t been mindful of what I’ve been adding to the mix, and I apologize to those who have been caught up in my fear. I’m fairly sure I’ve lost a friend or two along the way, and that saddens me.

This morning I woke, checked Twitter, and slowly it dawned on me that I *can* make a difference, one that is more subtle, but no less important than helping bring to light all the darkness that’s been festering for too long. I’m a lightworker. I’m supposed to be working on the side of service, not regurgitating negativity. As my friend Michael said, “Be the light, Pip. Be the light.”

By working to help others feel better via distance healing sessions, I, and others who have this ability, can begin aiding souls so stuck in that quicksand that they’ve lost hope of ever getting out. Souls that have been abused and are still to afraid to talk about it, souls that endure racism and hatred daily, souls that have lost all hope.

I can’t change your life, but I can ease some of the stress and pain for a bit. I can help bring “healing harmony” (thanks, Alice, for coming up with that phrase to describe what I do!) to your mind and body, giving you a time of peace in which to feel comforted and rested.

I hope you’ll do me the honor of allowing me to help you in whatever small way I can. I offer sessions for $1.00 a minute, and I also have more intense sessions that work to help you speak your truth, which has a different price structure.

I look forward to being of service, and I promise to slow down on all the retweets! 🙂

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”m moving some of the more interesting blog posts from my 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. 🙂

Akhilandeshvari by Tim Foley from Llewellyn’s 2018 Witches’ Companion.

~ 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.

I also plan to write newsletters, aka ‘postcards’ more regularly, too (and no, there is no way to center the description on that). The world has become way too interesting (read ‘freak-out scary’), and being able to stay connected in the possible chance that some social media sites may disappear due to the end of Net Neutrality is that goal. I’m thinking once a month is not too annoying…what do you think?

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!!
