Here I am down the road a few years from where I started trying to say a few things to those who might listen or argue or be somewhat entertained by my thoughts about acupuncture, 5000 years of Chinese practice might mean something! Acupuncture had saved me from terrible, lousy, allergies.
I also spoke of energy healing and the fact that there was more than one galaxy.
The fact that we ( our consciousness at that time) didn’t really know it all.. Meditation and Yoga!! Yes all this, so powerful, and such a contribution to our society at that time and now today it’s all normal!!! Such a difference. It’s all mainstream.
So I at one point got discouraged gave up and let go and now I’m back, meditation and Yoga, I have lost that weight, and my Beloved Teacher Sai Maa who brought me home, home again, to what you ask, to the Divine within, that’s her lovely lovely work in this world. To bring us back to that experience of the Divine within.
My first trimester of pregnancy with my third child just about wiped me out with upper respiratory congestion, trying to breathe at night, asthma, wheezing and the whole breathless catastrophe. Oh man, imagine my relief when I was finally treated by the best acupuncturist in the Washington DC area. We made a trade, I would work as a receptionist Saturday mornings and he would treat me.
What a difference, 6 weeks of treatment and I was no longer sneezing or congested. I was breathing easily and walking tall! Soon after I started studying with Dr Wu and doing energy healing work which was my specialty with some of his clients. What a gift to study with such a great Master Acupuncturist.
To this day I am still practicing energy healing and I am my self a Master Healer.
At 71 I am a happy, healthy and delighted Human Being.
My teacher today, Sai Maa, teaches us the Divine state of being and as an Enlightened Master and a living Saint raises our vibration and what I know now is that, that is the job of a teacher….to raise our vibration, to inform us and heal ourselves in that exchange.
Maa as a living saint has a signature program called the Journey of Profound Healingwww.sai-maa/profound healing.com during which she cuts the roots of those haunting and injurious traits that run from generation to generation, such as depression and suicide which runs in my family, could be abuse and heavy alcoholism whatever…… You can find out more about Maa at http://www.sai-maa.com
I would like to acknowledge my poetry teacher and mentor, Grace Cavalieri. I do so love words and the art of poetry. Grace has been a tremendous contribution to my life as a poet, as a woman and for her tremendous contributions to the lives and words of all the many poets she has made eternal by her recordings with their interviews at The Library Of Congress at “The Poet and the Poem.” www.thepoetandthepoem.com
You can find my interview along with my fellow West Virginian and dear friend, the poet Sonja James at Part 2 at this address www.thepoetandthepoem.com
How I love you, My Maa and how I love you Dearest Grace. I am so grateful for you. Your appreciation and encouragement of my poetry craft.Your guidance and editing. I am so grateful.
So In september there will, I hear, be a huge influx of energy to our beloved Mother Earth. This to raise the energy, enliven and enlighten the consciousness of the planet. God knows we need it.
With so much of our world stuck in we versus them it is time to go to work. Raise your own vibration through meditation, dancing and the enjoyment and self expression of our lives in gratitude for this life. Somewhere you agreed to come here to this earth at this time to bring in a world of Peace and Prosperity.
A state of joy and Knowledge of our own individual Divinity.
Are you ready to roll? Come on Come on!!

The love of my Beloved Sai Maa, heals the world.
Here is one of my poems written at a wonderful workshop with the poet and neurologist Frederick Foote.
DEVELOPED FROM THE DREAMTIME
I am from infant failing to thrive
saved by intramedullary feedings
saved with Mother’s milk.
I am from always the new person
on the block.
From unknown to maybe you’re OK,
milk bottles delivered to the house
air raid drills under the desk
Rock ‘n Roll and Elvis
I am from the ocean, clean salty swell, surfing the waves
on 8 foot boards at Piha beach, black sands and riptides,
sweet parties at the Surf Club, 1960’s
Scuba diving, in the caves of the Poor Knights Islands
I have travelled on the Oronsay to this new home down under
the land of the Long White Cloud, New Zealand,
the Maori. Mother’s friends and family.
I am from divorce and decree, Catholic school and rules,
writing, writing and my first Brownie camera.
Poetry, stories and photographs
The Newmarket Swim club, sunburn and swim meets.
I am from the red phone box, press button B to speak
the sailboat adventures with friends, on the 36 foot sloop with ketch rigging,
winning the race at the Akarana yacht club,
nightime sailing in the cold, warmed with coffee and a drop of rum,
I am from Scuba diving in caves at the Poor Knight’s Islands.
Nursing school and Post graduate studies , the Ann Arbor riots
I am from Meditation, Kriya Yoga, energy healing and growth
Travelling through profound healings.
