The Long Room Library Note Card is a photograph of the epitome on Irish identity, the library at Trinity College in Dublin Ireland. I decided to offer these cards on a larger scale since many of you have requested prints and cards of my photography and artwork. I am also available for family photo shoots. You may contact me here.
Because healing doesn’t mean you’ll never need healing again.
Just a couple of years after I’d recovered from fibromyalgia, I almost died from a three-month bout of whooping cough.
I put my faith in a Chinese energy healer and herbalist who helped me recover. I can remember that in spite of the seriousness of my illness, I had very little fear.
There have been other challenges and there will be more until I take my last breath.
It’s part of the human experience.
But it can be so different without fear.
To face whatever happens with grace rather than despair or anger.
To never again separate the body from the mind and the spirit.
Of course, I can see more clearly having walked through the fire myself a few times in my life.
We all wish our bodies could talk to us (well, they can – just not literally) and tell us that that toxic relationship is hurting our heart.
Or not being true to our life’s purpose is causing chronic fatigue.
Or that grief “so deep it’s buried in your bones” (as a healer once told me) is the reason our lungs are hurting.
After you’ve healed, be sure to take stock of why you think you got sick in the first place, and what you did that led to your healing. It will come in handy when life throws another challenge your way.
