Your Mind & Spirit – limitless

Tags

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

Hello everyone, as Monday begins so did some reality checks. Often we may not recognize the limits we need to set for ourselves but our friends and family do.

Our bodies can only handle so much but our mind and spirit have unlimited potential. Be reminded of that when your body begins its “protests” over activities…you can give it what it needs but it can only be coaxed so far before it cries “uncle” but that doesn’t have to stop your pursuits. You may have to go slower or take a different route it doesn’t mean you won’t reach what you seek.

Don’t give up just try to find another way.

Sunday…our small Victory Day

Tags

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

Hello everyone, this Sunday is a restful day for us. It’s been a difficult week.

The Owner had multiple bad days of pain. It was hard for her and hard for us to watch. She normally manages it quite well but this week her tricks seemed to not work very well to lessen the muscle aches, swollen joints, etc.. .

We dug through her books here and compared it to all we have to see if one of the formulas we have yet to post a “why” sheet on contains ingredients that may help.

We were surprised to see the Blood Sugar Support formula contains things that help for so much more than that. We are happy to say that the cherry, huckleberry, juniper berry ingredients in that formula helped…after a few days of adding that in she began to feel better…we could even see the swelling from the inflammation in her joints going down & her appetite return.

Now we understand why she is always encouraging us to also look at the ingredients for things beyond just what is “advertised”.

To celebrate…we went out got some vanilla and root beer…Floats all around! If you were here we’d share them with you too. Victory over something deserves a treat and this is ours today.

Enjoy your Sunday and we will post a “why” sheet as soon as we get our other primary laptop back that has our template on it.

Overview of Things – Cauldron Layout

Tags

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

Hello everyone, it’s Liza the Owner of The Wandering Path. As promised below is the card reading layout and meanings that I did on July 13, 2014.

I wanted to see if I could find some type of direction or hope in things to come and I knew that I did not have enough single focus to go for a “single issue” reading but needed an overall picture.

You could use this for decks that you have if you too find yourself at times wondering about things overall and may need a little direction (or even a kick in the bum so to speak).

I used a deck that is one of my own that I had never opened so it was the first use of it and so I did find the layout very telling of somewhat “obvious” issues I need to address but admit I’ve been putting off or too scared to attempt. Here is to hoping I can get to work, get things going, and that good things are coming my way.

Refilling from the Well

Tags

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

Wow, what a week it has been. Hello all, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. Well my tech-free holiday got much more extended as the computers around here fell one after the other like dominoes.

After I had moved the majority of the files onto the desktop, it too joined the “I don’t want to work either” pack. I finally got one of the laptops repaired so now I can begin again to share the thoughts I have with you.

I admit, as they kept failing, I couldn’t decide if it was just “time” for them to fail or if I had some bad juju around me, or the universe trying to tell me something. My hope for what I was trying to do did wane a bit until I remembered to refill the hope I have in what I am doing. So now, I look at it, that perhaps they just needed to be repaired and I wasn’t supposed to try to push the store items too much nor look for another job for a bit.

I chose to view the cell outage & computer failures as a time to reflect and replenish so to speak as I have been going hard for some time. I will share a card reading I did tomorrow after I write up the layout meanings which actually speaks to the fact I need to make choices and put in some more hard work.

I hope you all remember you have your own internal well of hope and that it is there for you to draw on when you need it to and that your actions can help it to refill.

BB, have a wonderful Sunday. With a raised coffee mug –Liza M.

Direction in the Fog

Tags

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

Good Morning everyone, it’s Liza, the Owner of The Wandering Path. My morning is spent battling an overheated laptop to retrieve files…it’s been quite a test of patience and finding a way to move the files quickly but efficiently; so far I have 3 steps in place that seems to be working but I admit I’m a bit too geeky to be as patient as I need to be.

Okay, onto what I wanted to share with you. I came across a PBS program yesterday that highlighted a great approach of using music to push through the fog of Dementia. Music, smells, pictures…all can trigger things in people that you can feel are completely lost. As if their path has been shrouded in a deep fog and they cannot find their way out. I found this clip (from the film Alive Inside) to show you what I mean seems as if there is some hope to at least give a beacon of direction for those lost within their mind due to that disease.

I know for me personally, losing my ability to think, recognize, contemplate is my highest fear. I don’t even drink too much for the fear of losing the ability to think….you could say that I’m a bit of a control freak on that front. I hope you all enjoy the short video and can see the hope in this type of research.

The older souls among us have many fascinating things to share and tell, if we are there to listen and they are able to speak.

Wait, what do you mean my house is in a cell dead zone?

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello everyone. I hope you all are doing well. My decrease in tech-usage holiday is continuing. My home has become a cell-phone dead zone bubble…frustrating…and now to add to it; the fan went in my laptop I primarily use for The Wandering Path. This should be fun trying to get it to boot long enough to move files off it. I have booted up a desktop to try to use in the meantime. The desktop is supposed to be for my personal writings not for multi-edits/uploads etc…so we shall see how this goes.

Yesterday was my 37th birthday and I got many well wishes via Facebook and I appreciated it but admit the “tech-strangle” I’m in has me a bit irked. I usually try to take a tech-free holiday but it is PLANNED not forced and I’m usually not at home when I do this….so I admit seeing broken, mostly broken laptops etc…around me gets my geek inside a bit irked as I don’t know how to fix them easily and the cost to have someone else repair them…well I could just buy another computer for that. So, hopefully I can figure out what I am going to do as it’s not like I’m working steadily so dropping money on something like a new (good) laptop is in the budget right now. All I can is at least the dang thing waited to die til after I was finally done with my BS (Bachelors of Science not that other thing…although yeah…lol) or that would have been bad…..

I hope you all try to take the positive view of life’s frustrations as I am trying to. I see the laptop fail as “ah at least it waited” and the other tech-free as the Universe trying to tell me to take some time and relax a bit…read a book and stop stressing over the business not taking off so quickly. Slow and steady to do it right is better for me anyway.

Music….a living memory

Tags

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

Good Morning all. You’ll need to turn on and up the volume for this one to get the full effect.

Losing someone is hard…it can be especially hard for those that are with us so very briefly. Saying goodbye to a child is extremely hard. We have experienced this and know that there is a reason that we may not understand why they leave us so early or are in our lives so briefly.

The grief can be overpowering and change who you are and how you see life. Music has always seemed to be a way to express a good bye but this video shows how Cincinnati Children’s is saving a piece of someone for those left behind and combining it in a way that can be healing. Brava to them.

BB to all of you! –The Wandering Path Staff.

The Eyes….Hidden Power Inside…

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Good Morning all. The humid heat is beginning to drain us. Summer tea is flowing freely over here and we all noticed the exhausted looks but then we began to lighten the mood.

Energy can be sapped but it is amazing what laughter and funny stories bring about. The eyes are truly reflections of the soul…have you ever stared at someone and knew they were up to no good…or had found someone who made them happy?

Have you ever looked at a potential love for the first time and saw that love reflected back to you? The eyes can tell so much about a mood or even bring someone back to reality when they are upset or lost.

Look a person in the eyes and see what you see…some may find it un-nerving but you may find a pleasant surprise as you could see something in that person you’ve never seen before.

See their spirit if you dare; the fire that burns inside…or a friend in need that is too scared to ask for help.  Connect with others…the benefits far outweigh the risks. 

BB! –The Wandering Path Staff.
