Unleash Creativity | Chakras & Haiku Poetry

CREATIVITY – THE CHAKRA CRUTCH DESCRIBED IN HAIKU

Nancy (Ayanna) WyattI’m about to teach you how I psyched myself up to access my creativity – by using chakras as the foundation for Haiku poetry – when I had to write “upbeat” pieces of work for publication right after having to Euthanize another (the third during the pandemic) of my pets who had been with me for eighteen years. You also can overcome grief, physical pain, or “just being stuck,” by employing these techniques – with or without the poetry.

Speaking in Haiku ~

crying

I was not smiling.

I felt paralyzed with grief.

I colored myself.

You will understand that last line better if you read (below) about Haiku and see the last poem.

As a holistic healing practitioner, I was blessed to know techniques that can be used to overcome grief and/or to tap into your imaginative mind for solving problems. You, too, can get “unstuck” in all areas of creativity, or household and business projects, and even health and emotional well-being, by learning about these chakra techniques. Most can be done anywhere in any circumstances. The Haiku is optional!

First let’s learn some definitions of Chakras and Haiku for those who don’t already know. Then, I’ll describe some simple tools you can use as relates to chakras.

If you want to learn LOTS more, then we can schedule this topic as a private session or as one of the classes I can teach to individuals or groups. Just sayin’ ….

Nancy’s Wellness Tools & Techniques

Nancy provides wellness sessions and products

A Life Coach colleague asked me what I do when conducting wellness sessions. The question is simple, but the answer is complex. For myself and others, I use and recommend the following tools, the first 3 of which + the chi machine helped me enormously and quickly with Lyme’s Disease in 2017. The Healy (which is new on the market) helped me amazingly with excruciating pain this year.

Wellness Products I Don’t Sell

Calcium Bentonite ClayClay to detox from insect bites

Why Drink Clay? Specific kinds of calcium bentonite clay remove toxins, viruses, bacteria, metals, etc. from the body. There are myriad uses (and it’s already in cosmetics, toothpaste, and more products). Check the link for some details.

Since clay extracts foreign items from the body, you should never use it with medications and not even with metal utensils. For Lyme, after I took the course of antibiotics, I started using clay – both internally and as a poultice in affected areas on my legs. It also solved intestinal issues – separate from Lyme. 


Castor Oil

Castor Oil Buds by Logga Wiggler

Castor Oil From the castor plant, this is inexpensive and works (with either internal or external applications). There are great books about the healing properties of castor oil, which can be found in any grocery store, big-box store, etc.

CBD Oils

I cannot vouch for the use of CBD oils for arthritis, because I’ve never used them. However, here is a link at which you can learn more, if you are interested. I’m sharing it because some people have found CBD very helpful. https://www.drugscience.org/cbd-for-arthritis/


Wellness Products I Do Sell

ASEA

Blue bottle of ASEA with notes about what body systems it helps

ASEA to boost the immune system (If you are unfamiliar, it contains Redox signaling molecules that are identical to those found naturally in your body. Those send signals to keep healthy cells and to repair or replace injured or diseased cells.) I do sell this and have been using it daily since 2013. (I’m 77 years old and do not need any pharmaceutical medications.)


Healy

Healy Images of Programs

Healy – FDA-cleared Class II medical device for pain, arthritis, and muscle soreness due to exertion. It is good for so much more than those items. It utilizes microcurrents from a sensor that can read exactly what your body needs in organs, meridians, emotions, etc., and then can transmit those frequencies to you. I have not yet started doing remote sessions, as I’ve not learned how to do it via Zoom, but I have people who can do it until I learn. I just got this in January and expect to use it multiple times a day for life. The beauty of this also is that the whole family can use one Healy. I do sell these items, including the Healy watch.


Chi Machine

Chi machine – Sun Ancon “Chi Machine®” – Aerobic Exerciser, designated a Class I medical device by the FDA. and sold by HTE Americas.
The chi machine (made famous on The Doctors tv show and elsewhere) is great for people who can’t or won’t exercise, for addressing circulation issues (blood, oxygen, lymph), and I use it to ease back pain whenever I’ve been moving heavy objects or moving to a new location. The beauty of this also is that the whole family can use one chi machine. Yes, I sell it. Here’s how you use it. You just lie on the floor with your ankles in an ankle rest, and it does all the work.

I have a “spare” on which I used to rent time when I had a venue in which I taught classes and conducted healing or meditation sessions. 15 minutes = 10,000 steps; 5 minutes = 1/2 hour walk.  Of course, I cannot do that now, given the pandemic, but you can get a trial period from the company.


Remote Sessions Involving No Products

Reiki

Reiki Kanji Symbol above cupped hands showing white light healing energy

Reiki – I’m calling my sessions “Distance Reiki,” because many people are familiar with that term (even if they don’t really know what it means), and some insurance companies pay for those treatments. In fact, I often do use Reiki remote healing techniques, if I am guided (via my intuitive sensing) that it is what is needed.


A More Esoteric Approach

Woman meditating on wellness session for client

However, what really happens in most sessions is indescribable in that I’m working at the “soul level” where there are no descriptive words adequate to the task.

The way I would describe it with some clients is that I invoked the highest Divine sources of healing, knowledge, and wisdom that would work with me specifically for the recipient and asked that all impure or harmful molecules be rendered inert and ineffective and dissolved back into the Nothingness from whence they sprang. Then, (or simultaneously) I work energetically to the end that all perfectly healthy molecules (organs, systems, etc.) be generated, enlivened, and prevail.


Permission from the Recipient Is Required

Recipients do not have to know exactly what I’m going to do; but, ethically, I must have their consent to try to help them.


How Does The Recipient Know What Happened?

wellness reporting - blue keyboard key with email symbol and word

When people hire me for remote healing sessions, I give them a report afterward (usually by email, but it could be via Zoom, for example). I share what I experienced during the session if I can find words adequate to match a description. (When one is working at the level of the subconscious, it is not verbal, linear, or necessarily logical.)
Sometimes, I feel the pain or constriction in my body that exists in the recipient’s body. Or, I might get messages to interpret. I might give references to Ayurveda, or Louise Hay, or to what symbols mean if I saw something (dreamlike) while I was “in the zone.”
stick figures shaking hands from their computers over wellness reportThe report must go to the recipient; and, if that person wants to share it, fine, but it is his/her choice. I cannot share it with anyone else – even if they paid for the recipient’s wellness session.

Also, there are times, when the whole process is solely energetic – I can feel the warmth that usually accompanies Reiki – but there are no words or visions, etc. It’s more fun when I can do a “reading,” but I can’t control whether the session will yield that kind of information. In those instances, it seems all the healing energy is flowing TO the person without looping back to me with information that needs interpretation.


Classes, Spiritual Counseling, or Life/Business Coaching
illustration of Zoom meeting
For groups and individuals, I might conduct, classes, coaching, or counseling sessions – now on Zoom. The Body/Mind is a messenger of our state of being. Have a headache? That probably indicates a form of stress, poor circulation, or some other issue that needs your attention. Symptoms of physical illness often correlate with mental/emotional states, so we can explore that – again – one-on-one with the recipient and me –  unless he/she chooses to have someone else with us.

NLP

Before quarantine, I could conduct wellness appointments in person, and Reiki or one of my other healing modalities might have been incorporated. I also employ NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) and other techniques, as guided, during each session.


HypnoMeditations or Hypnosis

Another example is having a conversation with the recipient and then crafting a HypnoMeditation for that person to help overcome issues, limiting beliefs, pain, etc. This example is “generic” for people seeking abundance and right work.

 


Surprise!!!

None of us ever knows what it’s going to be like in advance, no matter how we plan it, because I am attuned to internal guidance as to what is needed at any given moment.

ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)

stick figure scratching head and sitting on a red question mark answering questions about ADD and ADHDWhat Do ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) Mean, and Are You Experiencing the Symptoms? Is it related to sleep disorders? Do you need a Life Coach who specializes in this area?

According to WebMD, ADD and ADHD refer to a condition with symptoms such as inattentiveness, impulsivity, and hyperactivity.

The symptoms differ from person to person. ADHD was formerly called ADD, or attention deficit disorder. Both children and adults can have ADHD, but the symptoms always begin in childhood. Adults with ADHD may have trouble managing time, being organized, setting goals, and holding down a job.”

The A.D.D. Resource Center gives more details. (Note: I’m going to use both terms (ADD and ADHD) occasionally, because (although I might be wrong) I don’t think everyone who has these symptoms is hyperactive. However, the new convention is to refer to all symptoms under the label ADHD.)

World Multiple Sclerosis Day ~ Raising Awareness

World Multiple Sclerosis Day – May 30

books and laptop for researching Multiple Sclerosis

Let’s research Multiple Sclerosis

The purpose of any day set aside to focus on a disease is to help educate people, raise awareness about symptoms and treatments, and to make suggestions about providing aid to both patients and caregivers. What IS Multiple Sclerosis (MS)? The term means “many scars.”

It refers to the areas that appear on the brain and spinal cord after the myelin sheath, which covers and protects our nerves, is damaged or dies. The damaged myelin leaves a lesion which can be identified by an MRI.

Symptoms often arise in people from age 20 – 40. The Multiple Sclerosis International Federation states that Multiple Sclerosis affects over 2.3 million people. Of course, that means it affects the families, friends, and co-workers of 2.3 million people also! Continue Reading →

Spring = Allergies ~ What’s a Gardener (or Other Human) To Do?!!!

figure of a woman pushing a wheel barrowI live in the woods. I tested positive for allergic reactions to trees, shrubs, and grasses. I AM “the gardener.” I mow my own grass and tend to the plants on two acres of land. Some might see these allergies as an issue. Ya think? What about you? Anyone can develop allergies at any age. How can you figure out whether your symptoms indicate that you have allergies, a cold, or a sinus infection, or they result from a different condition like a deviated septum, smog or an illness? How can you enjoy being a gardener if you have seasonal allergies?

Jane Magnolia blossoms in SpringI’m not a doctor, and I am neither diagnosing nor treating any conditions. Instead, let me share information from the experts in this field. Then, please ask your health care provider for advice for your own situation.


Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies

cattails (plants) in water(Remember, not all allergies occur in Spring. Each season has its own specialties.)

ALLERGY SYMPTOMS

  • Stuffy or runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy eyes, ears, nose, mouth, or throat
  • Cough

One of the easiest ways to determine if your symptoms are related to pollen, plant mold, and other foliage-related “dust” is to track them to see if they are allergies which flare up during the seasons when pollen counts are high.

Track Current Conditions On This Map Whenever You Wish

WebMD offers us the chance to track whether and how seasonal allergies are raging wherever we live or visit in the USA. Here’s the current map. Just enter your zip code to get the most relevant information for where you are at any time.

If you experience symptoms throughout the year, you probably have allergies to things found indoors, such as pet dander, dust mites, or certain foods. Get tested, if you need to know more about your particular situation.


The Beginning

Blond girl with clothespin on her nose because of yellow ragweed pollen allergy.The symptoms display themselves in the sinuses, nose, and eyes. They like to drive you crazy! However, the real source of the issue is an overactive immune system attacking things which actually would not harm you.

Bacteria and viruses can harm you; pollen would not, but the immune system seems not to know that, according to Western medicine practitioners. (I actually don’t think Nature is that dumb and that there must be a different explanation, but I don’t know the real answer, so let’s go with the program.)


 Common Treatments

WebMD helps us distinguish between Antihistamines and Decongestants.

Antihistamines target histamine, which your body makes during an allergic reaction.You can take them as pills, nasal spray, or eye drops….Antihistamines can ease your symptoms, but they work best when you take them before you feel a reaction. They can build up in your blood to protect against allergens and block the release of histamines.

Decongestants cut down on the fluid in the lining of your nose. That relieves swollen nasal passages and congestion.

You can take these by mouth in pills or liquids, like pseudoephedrine. Decongestants also come in nasal sprays, including oxymetazoline and phenylephrine. But if you use nasal sprays too often, they can make your symptoms harder to treat.

Some medications combine antihistamines and decongestants. Their names usually end with “-D.


I Like The Neti Pot Better

Aladin's Lamp looks like a neti pot

Note: as you can see, traditional neti pots look a lot like Aladin’s Lamp. However, “neti pots” now take different forms for easy use, such as a syringe, which is like a big turkey-basting tube, for example. There are many options for you to explore.

Use of a neti pot is a traditional Ayurvedic therapy that dates back thousands of years. You use it to irrigate the nostrils and sinuses to clear them of pollen and other debris. No side effects when done properly. No medicine. Just a specific saline solution (ratio of purified water to salt in a clean container). Use it daily all year round and especially after doing any work (such as home remodeling) which creates dust and debris particles in the air.

In a minute, I’ll share a video about how to do it. First, Emily Holland, a certified Health Coach and article contributor to The Chopra Center website (Deepak Chopra, M.D.), wrote in detail about the neti pot. It is worth reading. She lists the following.

Benefits of Using a Neti Pot

Using a neti pot is an all-natural therapy that offers a number of benefits. It can help:

  • Clear nostrils for improved breathing
  • Reduce snoring
  • Reduce nasal dryness
  • Ease sinus headaches
  • Alleviate facial pain and pressure
  • Relieve allergy symptoms such as stuffy or runny nose
  • Heighten the sense of smell and taste
  • Prevent the common cold and other upper respiratory infections
  • Allow for deeper breathing
  • Reduce the need for medications such as antibiotics and decongestants

I wanted to use a different source for this, but, again, WebMD has a great video which shows what a Neti Pot is and how to use it, as well as describing the benefits of this ancient technique for enabling people to breathe better.

video icon

Video About Net Pot Use

That same page has videos about traveling when you have allergies, helping children with allergies, combatting severe symptoms with the epinephrine-shot, keeping your home allergen-free, and more. I suggest you review all of these things when you have time.

The Mayo Clinic answers the question about making your own saline solutions for neti pot use.


You Say, I Have Allergies, but I LOVE Gardening! What’s a Gardener to Do?

First, it is wise to check the temperature zones to determine which plants are both heat and cold tolerant in your area of the country. You can use “the Google machine” for more details, but this map gives you the gist. Note: as climate change is advancing, you should find the most current information/maps available.

Map of USA temperature zones for planting

WebMD recommends:

Go for plants with bright, fragrant flowers. In general, flowering plants are pollinated by insects, not the wind. Their pollen is usually too big to get in the air and cause allergy symptoms.

Choose native plants. They’re easier to grow, because they’re already adapted to the climate. Non-native plants are more likely to struggle, and stressed plants tend to release more pollen.

Ask for female trees. It might sound strange, but most pollen comes from male trees. You might see them advertised as “seedless” or “fruitless.” To breathe easier, plant a female tree that won’t release pollen.

Remove high-pollen plants and trees from your yard. At the very least, keep them far away from windows and doors, so their pollen doesn’t get inside. Bear in mind, this won’t protect you from pollen from your neighbors’ trees.

Looking for specifics about what to plant? Go back to this wonderful website, where you also saw the allergens tracking map. WebMD lists “do’s and don’t’s”  in plant selection here. Good choices


smiley face holding mask over nose and mouth with gloved handsTips for Gardening to Avoid  Symptoms of Allergies

We already know we should (whenever possible) garden on cool, cloudy, or damp days, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, gloves, and sunglasses or goggles. If you’re really susceptible, you can wear a mask – especially when mowing, as you are stirring up all kinds of seeds and debris into the air. Of course, it’s lovely if you either can pay someone or have someone willing to mow for you for free.

young woman showing irritated eyeDon’t touch your face and eyes while working outdoors. That’s easy to say, but hard to do. It also applies to life, in general. You have touched doorknobs, toilet handles, food, phones, car doors, desks, keyboards, etc. All these things are covered in germs which should not be transferred to your eyes or face. Do your best to stop. Wash your hands, wrists, and forearms often. If you get something in your eye, flush it out with water or an eye wash solution. Don’t rub it. Do what I say, not what I do!

I hope this has been helpful to you.

Enjoy the Earth, Life, and Gardening

Your Fingernails Tell Health Stories!

See What Your Manicurist Sees When Looking at Your Fingernails!

Newly manicured nails with sparkles on pink and gold polish with a pink and gold flower in the background

The manicurist might not recognize the symptoms your fingernails portray. However, some practitioners of Eastern and Western Medicine or of Holistic Healing Modalities can identify health problems by looking at your fingernails before you cover them up with nail polish. Human fingernail types Vector illustration

Here are some resources before we continue. They help define our terms of Eastern, Western, and Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM / holistic healing). They also provide more pictures and links than I can include in this blog.

The National  Institute of Health (NIH) compares Eastern and Western approaches to medicine and health.

An easier way to understand it may be found in the blog of a person who has practiced “all of the above.” Dr. Emili Kim describes his findings.
