A Look at the Current State of Things

American politics has just taken a strong right turn towards the bizzare. For many in this community the foreseeable future is somewhat grey and murky. First of all, know that this community always has been and always will be a tolerate place, free of judgment. Divisions by skin color, sexual preference, religious beliefs, gender, social class or whatever are non existent here. The only thing that matters is that you are loving and tolerant with both feet planted firmly in reality. And quite frankly, as I see it, that is the way the world should be. In the meantime, we all need to get through these grey uncertain times. For the younger community members this means being a bit less open and blending in, most likely something you have previously not had to do. For the older folks here, that means returning to times that we thought were long behind us. For now, until where we can all get a collective view on where things are headed, it is best to be cautious in how you individually express yourself. Why? Because being less than conservative, and holding values outside of what the far right dictates, may cost you your job, your housing, your children, etc. Now is not the time for outrageous behavior and bold claims. Do not loose what you have achieved because of the narrow viewpoint of others. While it may not be the time to be individually loud and open, it is the time for strengthening and building a community voice, and for supporting each other. It is the time for reaching across communities. Many in the energy work community also have ties to Pagan, Womens Rights, Black Lives Matter, LGBT and other marginalized communities. Work with each other and build strong bonds. Support each others causes and stand with each other for equal rights for all. It is going to take much strength and many voices standing strong together. Hard fought battles for religious freedoms, equal rights, equal pay, clean water, protecting nature and on and on are going to be on the chopping block. The damage done in the next few years may take more than a generation to reverse. Be part of the wall that stands for doing what is right for all and right for our planet, but do not go it alone. It is an old saying, but there is truly strength in numbers. Keep the pressure on. Call and email your representatives on a local, state and national level. Join with others and stand strong together, it is the only way we can all move forward together.

Injury and Bio Energy

I am sure all of you have experienced a serious injury that required special health care and some sort of special attention such as a surgery that limited you physically for a while in some way. I recently have experienced surgery for a severe injury that required removing torn tissue in my knee. I had to be put "under" for this surgery. After the fact, I went home to recuperate but also found myself completely drained and weakened. Part of this I am sure I can blame on the drug given me to put me under for surgery and then there is the surgery itself to fix the injury. I spent the next day limited on my ability to move around and therefore limited to regaining that needed bio energy or life giving energy that often comes from other people. I was fortunate to have a friend at my house for a while and benefited from the empathic energy exchange I had from her company. It happens that we will encounter a stressful situation sometime in our life that will weaken us and directly affect the bio energy amounts we have and need for wellness. These stresses could be the result from physical injuries that will affect our energy levels and require us to compensate for this more than usual and also affect our ability to do so and our ability to access the needed bio energy. That was more my problem, I lost the ability to access this needed energy due to losing my ability at mobility. It is one thing to lose the energy but another to also lose the ability to get it. We never know when this may happen but are sure it will happen sometime in our life.

Weather Misery

Somewhere this time of year maybe near you, you may be experiencing the destructive effect of weather through record snows, tornadoes, floods, and fires, fires usually coming later in the summer. There are not many places we can go in the USA to not be touched by these extremes. Weather extremes seem to be more common now than ever before. With the coming of the 4th strongest El Nino weather pattern since 1950, it is no wonder more storms come with it. Most of the energy of these things is drowned out by the misery that comes with them. It is certain that not all weather phenomenon produces the desired elemental energy we benefit from. Weather often brings with it misery as well.

Low pressure and pain

If any of you experience pain that comes with weather changes, you will understand what I am saying here. I get pain in my joints when there are changes to rainy and cloudy weather. Now mine you I am 56 years in age and already know the joints in my legs and arms are already old and "degrading" some, so I am already being setup for the inevitable when low pressure comes knocking. This weekend in my home state of Texas it has been worse than usual. While I welcome the bio energy of a good thunder storm, I suffer from the low pressure that usually produces them. How does it go? You have to take the good with the bad? Well, I can hope the low pressure weather center is far enough away from the unstable air coming up from the south in front of it which may produce that welcome thunder storm, or is that too much to ask most of the time. Probably so..

The Work Place

Lets face it, the vast majority of us have to work for a living which usually means being around a variety of different kinds of people. Now people needing bio energy vampirism are more sensitive to the energy given off by people around them. So what do you do with some people who have nothing else to offer but negative chaotic energy, that is a creator of conflict or the belittling type. And lets not leave out the type that just cant shut up talking about mindless drivel around you even when you don't respond. I don't work around many people, but I find myself avoiding any conversation with the vast majority of them to avoid their energy. Now some of the things I do.. I will even act like I have a phone call going on with my phone (be very creative here) not to mention having headphones in my ears listening to music when I am at my workplace. Last but not least, when possible I walk away from the offending idiots. Just a couple ways that I shut out the chaotic negative energy at work from getting to me.

My Dog and Elemental Energy

It is safe to say that we are all affected by the environment around us, from people to the weather; but do we ever consider how animals are affected or are they affected at all. Are any other living things affected by the bio energy in their environment. I have watched a dog of mine change moods in an instance to a thunder storm, firecrackers, loud men working on a street, and other things. I finally figured out that she (my dog) suffers from panic attacks, extreme fear when these events happen. She shakes and lowers her tail while trying to get on the furniture or bed depending where I am if I am at home. When I try and console her with my positive bio energies, her panic attacks are too overpowering. One time my smoke detector went off when something was in the oven, same result in her. We know that people are affected in similar ways to intense changes in our environment, but I have to assume that since my dog is affected in this way, so are many other animals. Animals can tell us a lot about the affect of elemental bio energy upon us and how thru their reaction, they tell us they are just as affected if not more than we are. Psychological reactions to elemental energy with their detrimental impact are part of the animal kingdom as much as they are a part of us so says my dog.

Spring Move

The coming of Spring here always brings changes to my life. Some small, some dramatic. This Spring I am moving again. It is not that I love this place - I do not. But moving is a trauma in and of itself. As anyone with energy issues can attest, it is not just about finding a place that meets your needs, it also about finding a place that meets your energy needs and where the surrounding energy is not detrimental. To quote poet Andrei Codrescu, "I'm older now. I need trees more than I need people. But it's nice to have both - only the ratios changed. When I was young, I needed 10 people to 1 tree. Now it's 100 trees per person." That of course is proving hard to find. I work in an urban area and like most urban areas in this country, suburb sprawl has moved the trees further and further away.

Years ago I would have never thought that I was as connected to the natural elements and earth energies. But when I look back on things I find that I have always lived near trees and a rather large body of water. Add that to the energy of dramatic storms and I seem to have my perfect mix. Funny, it is only through the perspective of time and years that I have finally understood what drives me energy wise the most.

How will the move go? Disruptive at best. Hopefully it will not make me half sick like the last move. By the changing of the seasons into Fall things should be settled and the surrounding energy back to nurturing instead of a moving roller coaster ride. As for now, I am filling things into cartons and looking for a place with that perfect balance of trees to people.
