For the pleasures of your soles

ME: I’m in a bad mood
HIPPOCRATES: Go for a nice long walk and if you’re still in a bad mood,
go for another walk. 



FOR THE PLEASURES OF YOUR SOLES
When the world is chaotic, your mind is in a buzz,
with in an infinite overload of ‘out of the blue’ stuff.
Take your mind, heart,  soul and spirit for a walk,
listen out for the exhilarating sounds of nature’s call.

Soul of Mother Earth, to soles of your feet;
Heart to ground, centred in peace.
Heel, then toe, mindfully across terrain,
smell and touch the stability of Earth again. 

Let the grass grow under your feet,
heart lifting moments, as senses meet. 
Earth and Heart, letters are the same;
they’re just ‘sounded’ out in a different way.

Heel to Toe

This Monk is ringing a bell as he walks, so that it chimes at a constant interval, calling people to pay attention and join him on his spiritual journey. 

Mindful Walking Explained

Simply apply the core concept of mindfulness to the process of walking. Focus the mind on the movement of walking. This increases the mind-body connection, heightens mindfulness, and boosts our mental well-being.

“The most primitive way of healing the body is by putting bare feet on natural ground,” says US cardiologist Dr Stephen Sinatra. “I call it caveman medicine and I thoroughly recommend it.”

‘There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path ~ The Matrix 

Solvitur ambulando /ˈsɒlvɪtər ˌæmbjʊˈlændoʊ/[1] is a Latin phrase which means “it is solved by walking” and is used to refer to a problem which is solved by a practical experiment. It is often attributed to Saint Augustine.[2]

Way of the Dragon

THE DRAGONS WAY 
Wanda was on her pathway to find,
where earths magnetic grids aligned.
Searching roads, yet to travel;
her new journey began to unravel.
 
Winding trails, over land and seas,
to find that place, she was meant to be.
Go left. Straight. Turn back or right?
which matrix to follow, was her plight.

Her face flushing red and puffy,
flummoxed and in an absolute huffy. 
Booming out thunderous mighty roar,
amber eyes glaring, as she guffawed. 

’What path would be her true north?’
disoriented, she studied her course. 
However, little, did Wanda know;
her *GPS sense would guide her home. 

Guarding Ley lines of treasured earth,
Wanda now rests, coiled and curled.

Reading: 

When these ‘Dragon Lines’ cross each other their energy spirals into a vortex. If several lines cross at a given point, called a node, it produces a massive vortex of energy.  Dragons were considered the guardians of all knowledge and wisdom.

‘Wherever the hero may wander,

whatsoever she may do, she is ever in the presence,

She is where she needed to be.

Fly me to the Moon

The Effects Of Full Moon on ‘Emotions’

In general, the moon is connected to our emotional selves. Many of the full moon effects on human behaviour and emotions are hidden deep within our subconscious. So when the moon is full, it emits energy that greatly affects us all personally as well as collectively.

This Full Moon falls in the sign of Virgo, something which can ring alarm bells for some. While Earth Virgo offers warm and comforting energy, the more unconventional and emotional souls out there can tend to feel overwhelmed by Virgo’s notoriously critical nature. As the energetic peak of the current lunation, tensions will be running high and the undercurrents and themes since the last New Moon will come to the surface. As such, it’s important to be in charge of the energy you choose to invite in during this time. 27.2.2021

The moon’s effects date back to legends and mythology of ancient civilisations.

Lunar phases also influence human emotions, behaviors, and health.

Top Image: Kevin Healing. The Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon caused by the rising of a full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats in Roebuck Bay, Broome, WA at extremely low tide, to create a beautiful optical illusion of a stairway reaching to the moon. This spectacular sight occurs from March through to November.

Blind Sight

BLIND SIGHT
 Take a walk in Madeline’s shoes,
 see with her vision, compare views.
 Blurry, focussed and out of sight, 
 a bizarre wonderland, her innate plight.
 

 Hyper vigilant, playing on all senses,
 counselling her cues for defences. 
 Imagine a world without any colour,
 as shadows and silhouettes shudder. 
 

 What do the visually impaired see?
 as they map the world so differently.
 Lights and movement, all a dimming,
 and that is usually only the beginning.  
 

 Maddie’s instincts alerted, to find out,
 what those noises and shapes are about. 
 Runaway chaos of periphery confusion,
 what is reality and is that an illusion?
 

 Like feet on stilts, stacked in unlaced boots,
 mindfully balancing, tottering new routes. 
 Inter dimensional paths, that criss cross, 
 although she doesn’t know what is lost.
 

 You might envision that Madeline is sad,
 but she’s happy with sights that she has. 
 Victoria Healing ~ 5.2.2021
 BLIND SIGHT  

Blindness is not a defect or a stigma. It is a characteristic, just as sight is, and Helen Keller’s words capture this fact beautifully: 

“I can see, and that is why I can be happy, in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden. I can see a God-made world, not a manmade world.”

She looks happy and excited, as she ventures forwards towards new paths.

Dragon Watch

DRAGON WATCH 
Bingey the Dragon finds it hard to sleep,
watching movies all day, as he eats.
As his insomnia began to take hold,
a variety of maladies started to unfold.
 

Overstimulation, anxiety, fight or flight,
his sense of reality, freaked out of sight. 
Locked in, on his own, in self quarantine,
spellbound, as dragons fought on TV screen. 
 

Clutching his pillow in horror and dread,
waiting on his mates to snuff out, evil, dead. 
Feeling drowsy and stressed in daylight,
since he’s watched on horrors all night. 
 

Legs up, rigid and huddled on chair. 
stiff and frozen, fixated and scared. 
Breaking free  to reclaim his own power,
Bingey now exercises outdoors, an hour.
 

Reading a book and listening to music,
before he became more edgy and too sick. 
Drinking more water, eating healthy food,
he has begun to have a peaceful attitude. 
 

On Dragon watch he’d previously relied,
on drama from others, to his own demise. 
Feeling fired up, now Bingey can sleep,  
dreaming of new crusades, but more sweet.
 

Whatcha gonna do, if you’re left on your own?
be like Bingey, pause that Game of thrones.

Snow Witch

 SNOW WITCH
 Annika is a witchy, sacred girl,
 who lives in a twilight world.
 The sight of snow outside,
 can ease her enquiring mind.
 

 There is nothing she loves more,
 than a field of fresh snowfall.
 Laying gently on the ground,
 flapping arms and legs around.
 

 Her arms both form her wings,
 legs cast her gown as she swings.
 Staring blankly into space, 
 her face then falls into a daze. 
 

 In her euphoric twilight zone, 
 she never feels heat or cold. 
 There is silence in the air,
 and she doesn’t have to care. 
 

 A stigma came before back in 1494, 
 when they penned olde witchy laws.
 ‘The Hammer of the Witches’
 branded all, with evil glitches.
 

 But, epilepsy is her blessing, 
 although some think it depressing. 
 Staying grounded is her thing,
 keeping her emotions in the swing.
 

 Back from her seizure she returns,
 to process all that she has learned. 
 Victoria Healing ~ 1.2.2021

Bringing epilepsy out of the Shadows

References:

The Sacred Disease 

Epilepsy is not a psychological disorder. The brain is made up of billions of nerve cells that communicate through electrical and chemical signals. When there is a sudden excessive electrical discharge that disrupts the normal activity of the nerve cells, a seizure may result.

Seizures cause a change in function or behaviour. A seizure may take many different forms including a blank stare, muscle spasms, uncontrolled movements, altered awareness, odd sensations, or a convulsion. 

People with epilepsy have excelled in every area. What follows is a list of people who are responsible for changing civilisation as we know it, all of whom are strongly suspected or known to have had epilepsy. It’s an impressive group.

Hammer of the Witches.

For centuries, it was believed that epilepsy was caused by evil spirits, goblins and demons. Epilepsy was also linked to witchcraft. A handbook from 1494, Malleus Maleficarum (The Hammer of Witches), claims that witches had special characteristics, including epileptic seizures.

A well-known neurologist has claimed that the history of epilepsy can be summarised as 4 000 years of ignorance, apprehension and stigma.

On a Spectrum

 ON A SPECTRUM
 It’s not what she says, or how she says it,
 Crystal our Dragon can never explain it.
 Anti social with repetitive habits,
 many don’t understand or grasp this. 
 

 Crystal has always wanted to be, 
 a light worker of the Orbs dynasty. 
 Working at night as everyone slept,
 deep in her cavern, lost secrets kept.
 

 In Dragons lair, as lightening strikes,
 mystickal energy crosses ley lines.
 Lost in chit chat in her own mind,
 preferring silence and alone times.
 

 Some have said ‘She looks too sad’
 frosty and klutzy, traits she has had. 
 Flapping her wings and claw licking,
 spectrometer of rays rise on flickering. 
 

 It’s in Crystal’s aura that you can see, 
 a rainbow spectrum, of light frequency.
 Epidote, quartz and fizz of amethyst,
 moon charged rain, a shard of tryst.
 

 As virtue of autism spectrum disorder, 
 eyes a twinkle, as prisms transform her.
 These are her quirks and plain to see,
 why would you vilify anyone having ASD?

Pen Dragon

 PEN DRAGON 
 Reading is often an optical illusion,
 causing Pen Dragon daily confusion. 
 When studying books for learning,
 his cognition is deeply concerning.
 

 Backwards lettering and all upside down,
makes Pen Dragon squint and frown. 
Words skipping about all over the page, 
 causes frustration, igniting his outrage.
 

 All jumbled up and out of order,
 giving him headaches and nausea.
 Pen Dragon can’t link words to sounds,
 it’s a nonsense, as letters shake around. 
 

 Printed stories, are mysteries to him,
 he’s vowed that he will ‘Never give in’
 ‘I can do it, I can do it’ he repeats; 
 ‘Letters will never be the ruin of me’ 
 

 And Welsh green Dragon remembers,
 his breath would singe pages to embers. 
 It was hinted that the great fire in London, 
 was what Pendragon’s ancestor had done. 
 

 Whatsisname had, had this the same, 
 singled out in classes, as a hot shame.
 Perhaps dyslexia, could, be an advantage, 
 like Harry Potter, aka Daniel Radcliffe. 
 

 Concluding that having more self esteem, 
 and lots of practice would help him read. 
 Taking small bite sized chunks to fill gaps,
 Pen Dragon paced himself, as he relaxed.

Twitchy

 
 
TWITCHY 
 Rowina is a scatty, bookworm nerd,
 obsessed with witchcraft worlds. 
 A hyperactive ADHD fidgety child,
 a short attention span makes her wild.
 

 To maintain and hold her focus,
 she methodically studies hocus pocus. 
 When distracted, edgy or frustrated,
 a sorceress mentality is initiated.
 

 Known for being twitchy and odd,
 Rowina doesn’t care a sod.
 Non judgemental and open minded,
 she prefers to find her own findings. 
 

 Biting at the bottom of her lip,
 studying legendary enchanter tips.
 Is it a cult, or was it a religion?
 swotting hard to make her decision.
 

 A good witch of magic and natural balance,
 casting spells, is her lifelong challenge. 
 To master her craft to become a witch Don,
 is a discipline she’s vowed to take on.
 

 No-one is harder on her, than herself,
 a wide streak of perfectionism swells. 
 Reworking her spells 7 or 8 times more;
 everyone has seen her tenacity before. 
 

 Separating fact from fiction, 
 is her fundamental mission. 
 Rowina finds when agitated or mad,
 she puts on her *familiar thinking Cat.

ADHD’s trademark hyperfocus is a serious advantage — if you can effectively channel all that attention and energy into work that makes a difference. “Many scientists, writers, and artists with ADHD have had very successful careers, in large part because of their ability to focus on what they’re doing for hours on end,” says Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D.
