Hello, all people!
So good to see you!
I’m again from my stroll by way of the valley of COVID . . . filled with gratitude for everyone’s ideas, prayers, heat needs, and reiki.
My physique appears to be therapeutic and my temperature has been regular for the final two days — and though my power ranges are nowhere close to the place they was, I’m starting to ease again into work this week.
One factor I’ve realized from this expertise: a temp of 103 does some humorous issues to at least one’s consciousness. Ten days in the past, I used to be within the midst of a fever doze when my pretty assistant Rose got here to examine on me and drop off some provides. She has keys to my condominium, which she used to let herself in, and she or he occurred to be sporting a black trench coat in addition to (after all) a masks and gloves. I opened my eyes and located her standing by my mattress, and my first thought was: “Oh! Loss of life is a WOMAN!”
After which I noticed it was Rose, and I used to be not dying . . .
There have been many comparable moments, as I rolled round in my sticky sheets and received very, very acquainted with the within of my mind. (I truly threw these sheets away final weekend, as a result of by God I am RELEASING no matter I sweated out, for GOOD.) I used to be fortunate to have Rose deliver me a thermometer and Pedialyte (the elixir of life, although it tastes vile) and I’m eternally indebted to my wonderful nurse good friend Cathy Crandall, who got here to take care of me a number of instances final week.
It’s very comforting to have folks maintain you once you’re actually actually sick: Rose, and Cathy, and my two neighbors.
Now that I’ve fought the virus and (knock wooden!) received, I’m starting to appreciate simply how a lot worry I’ve been dwelling with these previous few months. I really feel unusually alive and I’m extremely grateful for the love. Although I used to be too sick to examine the numerous messages of help that you just all despatched by way of e mail and social media, I used to be very conscious of the move: I might hear my mobile phone ping and really feel the love, prayers, and compassion.
Thanks, from the underside of my coronary heart.
As I talk about within the podcast and video linked up above, now we have some robust and contentious points this week AND we even have a fantastic, inventive New Moon in Leo on Tuesday, August 18, with the Solar and Moon and Mercury trine to Mars, and with Venus-sextile-Uranus additionally within the chart. I counsel that you just harness its ardour with a significant and private ritual (which could possibly be so simple as writing down some targets in a journal!) any time after subsequent Tuesday.
I additionally invite you to affix me, if you happen to’d like, for a New Moon webinar on Sunday.
P.S. Loss of life *may* be a lady? Who knew?!
