My Recurring Lessons on Health and Well-Being …

Although I did add a quick message about TeachNow two weeks ago, I notice my last update was in mid-July … so it’s been about three months since I’ve shared anything here even though I’ve wanted to publish more regularly. Apparently my body needed rest and I’ve opted to honor that need in order to remain healthy because I remember what happened in the early 1990s when I ignored those messages from my body and simply pushed through the symptoms as I’d been taught to do early in life. I’ll share those stories another time, but if you’re curious now … you’ll find a brief overview of my life here: 101 Things About Me.

I intend to remedy this situation and begin to publish more often … starting with the goal of posting at least weekly and increasing that as I’m able. Today I begin with three labyrinth pieces I wrote this morning as I contemplated a few recent quotes from my perpetual calendar from Dr. Christiane Northrup who wrote Women’s Bodies, Women’s Health in 1994 … about the Mind Body Connection … and helped me stabilize my health after an extended illness.

I realize these labyrinth pieces are challenging to read on the computer so I’ve added audio files above each that you can click to listen me read them to you. Please note that it’s possible to print out a copy to read in your hands as I wrote them … if you so desire.

Press play to listen to me read this piece now.

Thought for today:

“Be open to the messages and mysteries of your body and its symptoms. Be eager to listen and slow to judge. What you learn may have the capacity to save your life.”

Dr. Christine Northrup

      Thanks Joan,
      One thing I have continued to do throughout these past months of limited energy and activity is to write each morning, so I have lots of material to choose from.
      Hugs and blessings,

    Virginia, I am loving you and your labyrinth writings…and to hear your voice after all this time is heart warming. Then again, by not reading the text or listening to your words, I simply observed your lyrical lines, lace like delicate textures and resulting feminine forms and “heard” what you had to say with my eyes. Your message reminds me to continue to “flow like a river”

      How delightful to discover you’ve visited here through reading your feedback here this morning. I’m touched deeply as I drink in nourishment from your descriptive word choices about what you saw and heard and the message received from my labyrinth pieces. I think of you and the amazing art you create often … wondering what you’re doing now. Perhaps one day some of us will reconnect in Taos again … or somewhere else. I know I’d like that …
      Hugs and blessings,
