and find it"

Do this simple Subtle Body Acupuncture TM meditation to open the Heart
You know to heal you must open your heart, but your heart has a lot of learned defense mechanisms around it. In fact, in Classical Chinese Medicine (Daoism), the Heart is known as the Emperor or Empress, and is guarded by the pericardium, known as the Guard. To heal we have to get the guard to step aside, so we can can begin we can align with our spirit and begin the change we wish to see.
Welcome to the next stage of your evolution
Right at this moment you have old stories you are carrying around. Some of them no longer serve you, and you are ready to let them go, so you can evolve to the next stage of your life. You are not sure how to begin, You are here because someone or a little whisper from the universe led you here to sprinkle a little alchemical dust on your life. I have been in your shoes, and continue to work on embracing my weird wonderful, creative, compassionate, peaceful Self, and help others to do the same. I believe when we find peace and embrace our stories of awe, our planet finds peace and its powerful story too. .

"Caring for myself is not an act of self-indulgence. It is Self-Preservation and that is an act of political warfare" - Audre Lourde
When I was an acupuncture student, I was so sick and tired, but ironically could not afford to receive acupuncture, but once a month. I knew that many moms who looked like me were in the same shoes. So in Spring 2021, I decided to start a fund for moms and their kids of color to receive three free acupuncture treatments with counseling and wellness. The results were so amazing, that my husband encouraged me to turn the fund into a Pilot Program, so I did, and have some interesting results to report. We now are entering phase two of the program, as we move towards 501c status.
