“Don’t you know yet? It is your light that lights the world.” —Rumi From today’s meditation (Deepak Chopra’s Finding Your Flow — online)
Today I was shopping in Whole Foods – an attractive woman with white hair said to me ‘You’re so cute and your hair is so pretty!’ That gave me a chance to thank her and give her my bookmark with my website on it and to talk about being a miracle. She and her husband engaged with me for 5 minutes continuing to compliment how great I looked.
I felt my light was shining. So yours must be too!
A long time close friend just told me that after taking ‘Ticlid’ medication 14 years for stroke-prevention – her doctor agreed she could wean herself off starting two weeks ago. Since then she has more energy and gratefully now sleeps ‘extremely’ well – for the first time in all those years!
Bonus news: unfortunately research has confirmed that the medication is toxic, thus potentially carcinogenic — we’re so glad she no longer ‘has to’ take it because of her good health and successful strategies for dealing with stress. At 77, she’s having so much fun — even the star of a weekly salsa class!
My long time friend and mentor Anita Pernell-Arnold has a deeply moving and inspiring chapter in ‘Pathways to Vibrant Health and Well-Being’ — another excellent reason to read it!
Her story is expanded in her book soon to be published “Paths through Despair to Gratitude and Faith–A Guide for Facilitators of Bereavement Groups and Grieving Spouses/Partners.” More details coming.
