Blogging can be a very addicting activity. When I started blogging, all I would think about was what I was going to blog about and then take pictures of what may be relevant. I had a special file of potential blog pictures.
I'm starting to notice a trend in my food intake. When I consume gluten, I am a little more moody, things get me down a little easier and I'm irritable. I've only picked up on this because I've eliminated it (but then I will cheat with things like a soft taco this past Saturday!). A little dairy here and there does not seem to affect me but certainly the gluten. (I will write about the food /diet/chemicals, etc. in another blog).
Nobody is perfect and I certainly had a less than perfect day yesterday. There wasn't anything wrong with this uneventful day either. I have been gently working on letting things go with the flow. My husband has been eloquently and naturally picking up the slack without my constant reminders (nagging). But yesterday I was out of patience with the kids, maybe everybody, but they were there and they were my mirror.
Reiki is a Japanese word that literally means "universally guided life force energy". It is not Japanese or associated with any religion or dogma. It is literally just a description of the specific energy itself. The energy comes from THE source of goodness and love...God...higher power. Whatever term you feel comfortable with is your choice.
Today is about Oz. He's four years old. He started off the day dropping the ipad and the screen went blank. After awhile, I was able to reset it and now it's working fine. Then he peed in his brother's bed. You can see where this is going. Crying for attention, needing to be affirmed, to feel loved and accepted, etc. I'm worried.
I'm not going to start off by giving a dictionary's definition of ritual or ceremony or write a long synopsis of either. You can go on your own to a dictionary or google ritual vs. ceremony and you will get more than you need of an understanding of both and the differences. This could be cleverly debated and it could go on and on but I will keep it practical and applicable.
