My work gives me so much joy! This time it was at Pharmaca. I was privileged to be part of a beautiful redemptive moment today between one of my favorite customers with a newborn (I’ll call her Serena), and another brand new customer (who I’ll call Hannah) that I will never forget. Hannah whom I’d been helping a bit earlier took a moment to help Serena in a way that blessed me initially just in seeing them share common experiences of motherhood. But there was so much more going on than I realized. Thankfully Hannah came back into the store a few minutes later to share a critical element of the story that I might have missed if she had not cared enough to share.
Continuing the journey…
This is what my bowl of blessing rocks looked like when we set them up on my display table at the event we recently attended in Southern California.
This is what remained in the bowl when packing up the display and I noticed several of the rocks with blessing words were missing, as well as the precious heart-shaped green stone that has such deep meaning for me.
Some have suggested that perhaps the bowl looked like the words were for the taking, like a candy bowl. For next time, that will be a great idea.
This was my bowl of Blessing Rocks. I wrote the following during my experience at an event where I brought this bowl, along with a good portion of my healing room, to serve those who attended the event:
Saturday journal entry:
This picture of my bowl of blessings is even more precious now. I’m so glad I took it. It’s gone—a symbol of how temporal everything but love is.
What happens when a “healer” gets sick? Well I’m afraid in this is a lot like the understanding that doctors and nurses often are horrible patients! So much of my experience and learning over the past 20 years of my natural health training has been a lesson in practicing what I preach. Ouch! Shouldn’t wellness be automatic by now? Sadly no.
Welcome to the Healing Pathway Blog… Sometimes my blog will be based on research I’ve discovered, other times it will be just something going on with me that might help someone else in some way.
Still working on getting comments going and not full of spam. Hope to get the comments up and functional sometime soon. Meanwhile, explore away…

I just posted a status update on Facebook that said, “Some nights just aren’t for sleeping these days.” One of my favorite people “liked” it within seconds of posting. One of the discussions surrounding social media is that it’s not truly “social” in the strictest sense of the word. While I tend to agree that virtual friends alone can’t stave off loneliness, I found a lot of comfort in my friend’s “like” and that it came quickly and made the night feel a little less lonely.
