Start of Nature’s Slumber

Hello everyone. Finally, September is here…we see this as the month it begins….summer begins to wane and Fall starts to take hold as the Earth (Mother Nature if you like) begins to start her preparations for Winter Slumber.

Absolutely, Autumn is our favorite time of year as we can watch nature show their colors, it is cool enough to get out and explore plus our favorite holiday is on its way. Surely, you can guess it is Halloween (Samhain) and we cannot wait.

We hope that we get enough sales in September to allow us to go and find some great things to stock to celebrate such a time of year.

Thank you all for listening to the Owner, we know her well but also know she struggles with many things we cannot comprehend as we did not go through everything she did.

She wants to share but how “much” of herself does she put out to the world is always a question for her. Her conditions and her battles with them are so personal but also so inspiring to us here and we know that is why she is so passionate about what she stocks and why as she doesn’t want anyone to go through the struggles and amount of time it took for her to find ways to cope, treat, and find her own inspiration.

Not everyone is as stubborn as she is about finding “another way” to treat things…especially health conditions. If she could, she would literally sell the stuff at cost or give it away. We have to stop her from handing out samples from her own supply that she uses (and pays for our of her savings) because she sees someone in need and she hates to see someone struggling…when she knows there is a possible treatment for it.

Okay, we are off our soap box and wish you all BB.

Participate not Isolate

Good morning early risers. It’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. As I consider my options as to the viability of the business being my only position I do admit my thoughts did wander to whether this is just a dream or if it can be my reality.

On a personal note, I’ve been alone essentially for over a decade and my previous jobs made it so I had to be extremely isolated from people other than those I worked with.

As I struggle with the “business need” to be around people in person with the PTSD symptoms of needing to only be around people I can trust, I created the graphic below not only for me but for others struggling with mass socialization introductions.

I need to stop isolating and start participating. Thank you as always for listening to my inner thoughts & concerns.

Waiting for the Fog to Clear

Good late night all. It’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. My “late night owl” tendency has taken hold the past few days…hence why no blog posts although I have tried to at least post something to Twitter every so often if I woke up.

The sand man seems to be avoiding me and I also felt as if I was in a bit of a fog…unsure which way to go. I know everyone experiences those times where someone or something seems to be sapping your energy & creativity and I admit this has been affecting me this week…quite badly.

Tomorrow I shall start adding the Mood (I call it Chinese Prozac) to try to help deal with some of these down trodden/defeated feelings. Yes, my anxiety levels and stress over the business and its lack of activity have been getting to me but I do try to remain hopeful.

Thank you as always for listening to my inner thoughts & concerns.

Hear the Meaning

Good morning everyone. It’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. I am enjoying the brief time I have left with the open windows. Before I finally went to sleep around 2 am I noticed the temp outside was better than it was indoors so I cracked open those windows. It always makes me just want to sit and listen to the night.

I also began to think about how often people “talk” but rarely “listen”. So much is said that is beyond the words used that the art of being able to listen seems to be getting lost. Yes, we can communicate quickly and to the point…twitter demands that; but often people say things but what they really mean is unknown to their conscious mind but is being communicated by actions, facial expressions, and spiritual projection so to speak.

The desire to be in direct contact with another person seems to be getting lost and then when something a person does…doesn’t match their “online” persona; the question of “why?” is being asked. We need human contact, we need to hear eachother and understand the meaning.

I know there are those of you who understand the meaning of a “look”, a “sigh”, etc… in another individual….that you seem to have an uncanny ability to read them like an open book or hear them speak without saying a word. So, as I watched the Q&A last night on Acorn with David Suchet he said a quote that I chose to use today as the character by Agatha Christie, Hercule Poirot was indeed a great listener…and I also think a great observer. I shall miss his portrayls. If you didn’t know, the very last episode of Poirot with Mr. Suchet has aired. Au revior et bon chance.

Make it Social

Good morning everyone. It’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. It has been a tiring few days but for a good reason. My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl so of course the vigil was an all-nighter and she handled it like a trooper.

Take that with the lightening shows and record temperatures down here..oi. I have also been working on getting things done to take the shop stock to the local area flea markets. Okay, I know there is more but I was just happy I got to bed before 4 am so I wanted to share something else with you I came across this morning.

Music can bring about so many feelings and often we can “box” in instruments…seeing them as only used a particular way or needing to be accompanied by others. Lindsey Stirling, with the help of UE Boom did a performance in front of onlookers that delighted not only the adults but children.

Music can be so expressive & inspiring even without words. I hope you enjoy it and I would have loved to have seen it in person myself. So like many things today make it social…music, experiences, expressions, connections.

Blood Sugar Support Formula “why” Sheet

Tags

Good afternoon everyone. It’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. I have had a busy morning but happy to say that I squeezed in time to complete the “why” sheet for the Blood Sugar Support Formula I chose.

If you’ve been following us on Twitter or Facebook; you’ve seen me report that I started to take this due to repetitive days of severe muscle pain & joint swelling. I was happy to find that some of the ingredients in this formula addressed that, hence the “guinea pig” trial.

Over the years, I have done this often trying to find treatments for my various conditions…as I believe nature can provide things to assist without as many side effects. Western & Eastern (Alternative) medicine all need to work together; if there is a more natural way to treat what is ‘wrong’ vice just a symptom then that is the path I’d rather travel.

I spent too many years on Western meds that the side effects were worse than the symptoms (I gave it up as a primary after my teeth disintegrated…literally, because I didn’t realize the pain meds I was on were draining the calcium; I don’t even want to fathom what it did to my bones).

We all have problems eating right and probably need help lowering cholesterol, blood sugar levels; improving kidney/liver function; dealing with digestion issues, UTI’s etc… and so I tried to highlight some of the ingredients you may have never heard of.

Please, be well…achieve wellness…it leads to a much fuller life experience.

Find Your Voice

Good morning everyone. It’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. I spent the weekend trying to work on a brochure to place a local spot to hopefully spread the word about what my shop has to offer.

Yes, tad frustrating as I didn’t realize how much “stuff” I have and trying to quickly describe things can be difficult, finding my voice is difficult as I have too much to say about “how, why..” a particular item may help.

This morning, as I stepped outside to place out the house payment…the sky beckoned to say the least. The clouds were magnificent and I can’t even describe just how “large” they were nor could even the photos I took truly capture their impact.

The one I chose to share seems to me as if the cloud decided to speak, it’s need to voice something burst out of it. I won’t taint your view by describing what I see but leave it to your imaginations. Be inspired and find your voice, wish me luck in finding and refining mine.

Safe Journey

Good morning everyone. It’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. It seems that many wonderful people are leaving us lately. Even my own Grandfather passed unexpectedly this week and of course no doubt you have also heard about Robin Williams.

If you follow us on Twitter or Facebook, you see us say “safe journey”; while we do also occasionally use RIP, we may take a different view than some. Yes, we grieve but we also know that the spirit is so much more than just the shell in which it resides and so they move onto somewhere…and that is why I have always said “Safe Journey” as I truly hope that their passing to wherever they go is a safe journey for them to arrive there.

If you too are experiencing a loss of an energy & spirit of which you adored, my thoughts are with you and I hope you will have a “memory” session where you tell stories about the person and their impact upon you. I also think that people still are with us when we speak about them fondly and recall experiences, laughter, and expose them to those that perhaps had never met them.

It is so sad to hear about the passing of Mr. Robin Williams. Safe Journey Sir…your work will always be inspirational to us & used to bring smiles to our faces. We only wish you could have been with us longer.

*Yawn*, morning all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. This week has been by far the busiest week I’ve had in a very long time.

I admit, I did NOT want to get out of bed this morning but my two furry companions…my Calico cats…decided that was NOT an option. So up I got…and I forgot to write down what I wanted to say to you this morning..so instead you get pre-caffeine ramblings.

Pursuing your path; expressing who you are; asking for help; saying thank you and being thankful; all these things can be difficult in different degrees.

Even just exploring your immediate world and noticing the beauty and true friendships you have that surround you can become difficult to see if your own mind is cluttered and body is full of stress.

I know I try to start my day by finding something that “kick starts” my…

Supporting Art & Revealing the Unseen

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Wow, busy few days and we haven’t even started on what we had planned yet. The Super Moon has inspired the Owner to pick up her camera and she has been up late each night taking some unique photos using what she calls “blind photography” as she couldn’t see what she was photographing most of time. There are often energies you do not see…and so she began capturing some of them.

They certainly have us boggled and for some of us…we do believe in fairies! We have posted 24 of the photos she has taken onto our Pinterest under Support Art & Expression. We are also contacting some artist friends to ask if they want their works hosted as well. The money from the sales goes entirely to the artists for their works.

Support their talent. Don’t forget to shop for things that may inspire you to explore your world and enrich your life. Remember we carry a variety of things & our new stock has been posted.

Be well, find your path…allow yourself joy! Below is an example from the Pinterest site. 

BB! The Wandering Path Staff.
