Transitions

We are going through some significant transitions right now, and many of us in our personal lives too; so what do these transitional phases have to tell us; what are they about at the personal and broadest level....and how are these all linked together. Speaking as one who feels them quite profoundly in my body, these are my thoughts...

Living with electro-sensitivity

Is electro-sensitivity really "Type 3 diabetes" as research now suggests? This would certainly fit in with my experiences of it. Here's a frank discussion of the symptoms of ES plus suggestions of how to live with it and make your home habitable again...plus an invitation to talk about these things far more openly instead of discussing them in the rather embarassed and furtive way that has become the norm. If this is you, you aren't alone - a lot of people (one estimate suggests up to 60 million people) are now finding their health is being seriously affected by a sensitivity to EMFs. Its time...not to make an enemy of technology but... to open up the discussion so access to technology can evolve along side us, not at the expense of homeostasis and good quality of life. For me, its been a challenging yet enlightening journey. Throwing in my two-penneth from personal experience...(read more).

Finding your way out of fibro-fog

A few days of extreme fibro-fog sent me off on a path of research that opened up even more doors of profound understanding than ever; showing me how the feedback loop that we are (within our own bodies and far beyond) exists in the ecstasy of harmonic flow...except when its 'glued' together by - well - to get into all that I suggest you read on as there's no pocket version of what I found out. Another one of my more substantial posts but with a lot of playful exploration and optimism inside for anyone who experiences fibro-fog or so-called chronic illness.

Coming up for release

In that moment before surrendering the bed to get started with my day, I cautioned myself "ok, take it steady this morning..." in my head but, too late, I was suddenly locked-up in excruciating spasm. All the signs of this likelihood had been there, from the steady build-up of widespread pain the day before to … Continue reading Coming up for release

When science catches up with symptoms

An article jumped out at me from my newsfeed today - one which announces that researchers have correlated symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and giant cell arteritis with solar cycles. For as long as I can recall, I have been declaring that there seems to be a distinct link between fibromyalgia symptoms and the solar cycle … Continue reading When science catches up with symptoms

When space weather becomes our weather

While there is (clearly) a link between space weather and what we experience down here on earth, my intimate awareness of this through fibromyalgia has taught me that its not a bad thing or anything to be feared...in fact, it is like a giant cosmic invitation to step back and get out of fear...and the way it impacts my health depends on how I respond to this opportunity. If I actually scrub my diary of all the human trivia and pull back from doing anything much at all, these days can be the most creative of all, literally like taking a huge cosmic chill-pill.

Fibromyalgia – a story of self-recovery

If healing is a return to wholeness, then loss of good health is the ultimate fragmentation of the self; a state, made manifest, of something much deeper occurring on the inside. Ten years ago, my health crashed in the most spectacular way. Across the decade since that time, I find been have steadily regathering all of the scattered parts of myself and putting them back together in such a way that I now find I am much more than the sum of my parts. This is my journey - shared.
