What’s Outside the Box?

4 Comments »

My mother could foretell death, my daughter described her own death in heartbreaking detail a month before it happened, we had a family Banshee and my aunts tended to communicate by telepathy.  In short, we were Irish, so none of that was beyond the Pale of plausibility. You can imagine why, coming from such a

Dr. John Upledger…Cranio Sacral Therapy

4 Comments »

For me, Dr. John Upledger was the answer to prayer.  Literally. My 13 year old Cee Cee was in a coma, close to dying, from an apparently undiagnosable malady no one could figure out or fix. I’d listened for days, as doctors tried to sound as if they knew what to do, knowing in my

Grasping the Wind…The Energy Behind Acupuncture

4 Comments »

In acupuncture charts – probably the closest most Westerners ever come to contacting the Qi concept – the meridian lines you see pictured, show the pathways by which energy flows within us.  The points on the meridians where an acupuncturist places his needles are merely spots on the energy grid where the doctor can tinker

Like Cures Like…Exploring Homeopathy

“The Law of Similars:  That which can make you ill can also cure you.” – Dr. Samuel Hahnemann When I was 21 or so I met a famous fashion photographer named Edgar de Evia.  He was sophisticated, worldly, creative and simply fabulous.  I’d never met anyone remotely like him.  His grandfather had been President of

At the top of my list of accessible help for much of life’s dis-ease, are healing baths.  And I confess they head the list because they’re not only therapeutic, they’re really pleasurable.  It’s part aromatherapy, part herbalism, part homeopathy, and all it takes to have these beautiful baths at your fingertips is to keep on

Mudras are hand positions that connect up certain circuitry in our systems for specific purposes.  You might call it Yoga or Tai Qi for your hands.  In a way, it’s like using our extremities as antennas to pick up specific universal  energy wavelengths and conduct them into your system.  Mudras are used throughout Indian, Japanese

Life Outside the Box

2 Comments »

As you already know about me, I was born with a caul, so it wasn’t considered odd in an Irish family that I could see force fields around people, plants, things – not in color most of the time — but rather as some kind of exquisite electrical emanations.  The whole world of matter seemed

Cutting Away the Past In Case There’s No Medicine Man Handy

3 Comments »

I wish you could all share the experience I’ve just recounted, but I realize it’s not so easy to find a Medicine Man unless you happen to live in Santa Fe or Sedona, but perhaps there’s another way to leave the past behind, if you choose to.  Several people have written about this technique, but
