Part of learning to listen to the body has depended on my employing the witness position of my own experience. That's meant that the below practice of not believing I know anything has been my modus operandi.
I like good food
Food as art form in the moment. My internal Kitchen Witch and muse at work. About I started sharing recipes when I started cooking “healing” food after becoming critically ill and disabled for years. I always have loved to cook so that part wasn’t new.
Gluten, dairy etc: Adding food back after elimination diets
I was on elimination diets for a long time and needed to be in order to quiet down the chaos in my body. I now know more than when I started and hope that the general method of learning to listen is helpful to others since I know the details will be different for everyone. Recently I went through a stint of eating lots of gluten and cheese as I add many different foods I avoided for many years back into my diet. I jokingly call it "retoxification." ...
darkness, light, marriage of opposites
Let your body guide you out of the darkness. The body is our only way into the light which holds the darkness so that we can be part of healing the whole world...trust the light so that we can trust the darkness...the willingness to embrace the whole shebang is the domain of the animal... In... Continue Reading →

We are a sensitive species who have forgotten who we are
We are by nature a sensitive species. Every last one of us. We learn through cultural conditioning to ignore and shut down what would be our highly sensitive natures -- our birthright. The conditioning we learn from our parents and our community (and the TV and internet and mass media) further encourages additional habits that appeal to us in particular. School furthers the conditioning. Later we develop more habits to reinforce the conditioning and keep ourselves numb. We use food (highly processed and toxic and developed to encourage craving), drugs (both legal and illegal), alcohol, video games, porn, TV, internet, shopping and the pursuit of more, more, more stuff to keep ourselves numb to the lies we've been told since the day we popped out of the womb. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
Skepticism is a healthy process that aids discernment…
Let's not demonize the skeptic! While anything can be taken too far, skepticism is a must for healthy individuals in our dog-eat-dog world. I made this rather sarcastic observation recently: " I don't know what to do with myself. I guess I'll be a life coach." Nothing like somebody who couldn't figure out what to... Continue Reading →
Kundalini lowering (rooting)
Kundalini rising? Some of us open up to the all well before our bodies are fit to hold it. We need to, instead work on becoming grounded. Perhaps we can call it Kundalini Lowering. 😎 (edit and update: a reader suggested the term Kundalini Rooting rather than lowering. I think it's perfect...) It's taken me... Continue Reading →
The sacred living NOW
Hate and love are two sides of the same coin...PASSION holding them as ONE. Oh, yes. Love has no opposite. *** In systematically embracing the shadow of humanity we neutralize all demons and become motivated by love. Demons are only denied aspects of ourselves. In embrace they all come into alignment. Practice holding your arms... Continue Reading →
I am kitchen witch & more about the somatic imperative
I channel medicine in my kitchen both via spontaneous meal creation as well as herbal concoctions. Kitchen witch I am.
The healing process is an ever-changing evolution when done right. Adopting other people's protocols is a violence to the body. One must meet the body here and now with particular attention to the unique context and environment of your life and your dna. ...
