Is There A Hole In Your World This September 11th?

Do you remember the way you felt that horrible September 11th eight years ago?  It was early morning in Hawaii, and I remember it well.

My heart aches as I type this.

How did you process your emotions of sorrow and anguish?  The world is still mourning that day!

My process involved a whole lotta tears.  I hope you found something equally as effective.  You can’t keep that strong emotion inside you, even though it may feel safer to stuff it.

It isn’t necessary to focus on painful anniversaries, but if they bring up old emotion, take advantage of the blessing and release all that stuff you’ve been holding onto.

Be gentle with yourself.  Time heals but it can also bring up new layers of grief.  Some aspects of the grieving process are just too painful to bear until some time has passed.

The following song really helps me.  The Eagles wrote it during their healing process from 9–11.  I love what they ask from each of us.

Besides ripping our hearts out, September 11th also caused us to reach out to each other in a way that I don’t think many had experienced in their lifetime.

Didn’t the pain of September 11th cause your hardened heart to melt?

What have you done with all that fear and sorrow?

What steps have you taken to assure that there will never be such a hole in the world ever again?

What steps can you take today?

What can you do to heal the world so there will be no more holes?

How Do You Easily Relieve That Bone Tired Feeling From Post Holiday Fatigue?

Holiday fatigue

The holidays can bring on a deep down ache in your bones, can’t they?

Before you reach for a bottle of pills or alcohol, think of simple and wholesome ways to relieve that deep down tired feeling.

The woman of the house is the most prone to suffer post holiday fatigue.  Please, if you don’t need a bit of nurturing today, then find someone near and dear to you who does, and make sure she takes care of herself.

Ten years ago, when I first began my struggle with auto immune disease, I was forever looking for pain relief that was natural and wouldn’t knock me out.

I was taking a class on the weekends with a group of women from my daughters’ school.  The subject of pain relief came up and one of the ladies suggested I try a hot bath with plenty of Epsom Salt.

It seemed a bit too simplistic to possibly help with the extreme pain that I had been coping with, but hey, I would have tried anything at that point.

You would not believe the amount of pain that you can soak away in 20 minutes!

You need to use 2 full cups of Epsom Salts, or any type of bath salts really. It’s an extra special treat to add essential oils to the mix.

Light a candle or your favorite incense.  Turn on some soft music.  Soak away pain and worries for 20 minutes.


You will lower your pain level significantly without taking a drug that is hard on your liver and will contribute to heart failure.

So go soak your head!  It really is great advice!

Water therapy is truly amazing, simple and effective.

Keep your head under the water for as much of the 20 minute soak as you can possibly handle.  That is how you get the biggest benefit.

My family knows how I feel about a good soak in the tub and got me the perfect gift this year.

Look for Dr. Teal’s Lavender Epsom Salt Soaking Solution and Therapeutic Bath & Body at a store near you.  I’m telling you, it is heaven in a tub!


When you lower your pain level, you can get a much more restful sleep.  The quality of your sleep has everything to do with your fatigue level.

Never underestimate the power of sleep.  It is pure healing magic!

Happy soaking and sweet dreams!

Hope your Christmas was cozy and happy, and that you bring in the New Year surrounded by those you love.

Are you often tense?

You are in good company.

It seems to be going around.
