The Journey

We have been drawn since starting our Spiritual Journey to look at and change various things in our lives which we would never have probably even thought about before. We felt drawn to natural healing books, eating foods that heal and not harm (so much so i actually bought a Readers Digest Book even though i knew i would never be able to stop all the junk mail from them from previous experience), i was drawn to buying Gary crystals and learning about their properties, add that to just "knowing" i had to learn Reiki it definately feels like it is a Plan that is laid out.

After a particularly bad winter several years with snow and ice i developed an ongoing sinus/ear problem and am convinced  it was the air freshners i was using in the home which pumped chemicals out every 30 minutes, add that to doors and windows being closed because of the bad weather and not getting out in the fresh air for days at a time. I was taking antihistimines, sterimar, flixonase nasal spray, antibiotics drops and tablet antibiotics as prescribed by GP and still it lasted for weeks. I spent some time researching on the Internet and there are lots of other people across the World who all say it is linked to chemicals whether its spray deodorants, hairsprays etc etc and to have an air freshner that pumps them out every 30 minutes, well!!!!!
I now seem to have very sensitive sinuses and ears. We are now a chemical free Zone in the house as much as possible and try and eat healthily and i try and avoid any products which may aggrevate my sinuses, cutting out diary seems to have helped and drinking lots of fluid to keep the mucous thin, avoiding yeasts and fungi, all seems to help.

In February our lives changed, Gary, my husband was disgnosed with Prostate Cancer at the age of 47, possibly a genetic link but it has really enforced that all the changes we had made in the months before the diagnosis were for a reason. Its been a tough time but i personally have a very strong feeling that it is a part of our Journey which was meant to be, that may sound very strange to many but i just "know" it is, its an incredibly tough time on all of us but i also believe we are never given anything we can't deal with and that things happen for a reason and that there are positives in every situation. Through our journey up to this point we have been drawn to many people in different ways all of which have added their own unique input into this difficult situation we are facing and without them all i don't think we would have coped as well as we have. We have learnt so much in a short space of time about a lot of things, most importantly about ourselves, Gary in particular.

It has provided a link to several areas of our lives which we couldn't quite see the connection before. Its not just about having a good mindset to deal with problems which is very important, its about looking after your bodies with the right foods and not giving them a hard time with chemicals as well as causing the Planet a problem as well. Its looking after your mind, body, spirit and your Soul, they all need to be looked after and fed whether its good food, positive thoughts, mixing with like minded people etc etc. Its a whole approach not just one aspect but all of it, "holistic". The jigsaw pieces are starting to fit together.

It has been foretold in many different religions and faith that a change would happen at this time, some said it was the end of the World, well my take is changes have to be made, more and more people are "awakening" to these changes that have to be made, some partially, some like us making the connection that its not just one aspect we have to look at but the "WHOLE" thing. More and more people are starting to see this and being drawn together and as in Wikaniko where i am trying to spread the message about the importance of reducing the chemicals in our homes and Environment. Lets remember that we also have to look after our Minds and feed our Souls with good things such as Love and not wars and hate and also make sure we feed our immune systems with things that can help fight disease and keep us healthy.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
