Recently I have come to experience the beginnings of self approval. Something that I can describe as a sense of inner peace. I can breathe.

How does that play out?

Feeling the need for approval from people, either living or dead is a heavy, often unconscious, burden to carry. Their voices have lived on in my mind. Their gavel comes down hard. Recently, I feel much less of a need to run things by this panel of judges. Peace comes to each of us in a myriad of ways. There is no one formula.

My goal is to spend time with people of differing view points and find peace within myself. Primarily with people that do not share my views. To replace judgement with curiosity. To not have to voice my opinion, or make it heard while in the presence of others, especially those that I can sense will not be open to hearing me.

I am right, so you are wrong is a tiring platform. Historically it has not worked and easily begets violence.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
