Greetings!.... Let's catch up, shall we...?
Updated: Aug 22, 2022
As I mentioned, time constraints prohibit me from spending as much time with my blog, as I would like.
But if I'm being honest, I've also had to cut back on my writing, because there are a few things I have to say, that I'm afraid people don't want to hear.
I don't think I'm being overly dramatic to characterize my viewpoints nowadays, as having taken a decisive turn toward cataclysmic decimation. Of people. And the planet.
While I was putting those blog posts together in my head, it occurred to me, that no one really wants to hear that.
To give you a very brief example of what I mean... I believe, at some point in the not-too-distant future.... climate change wins!
The world, from my vantage point, has gotten quite dark. I probably don’t have to tell you why.
Once I started feeling this way, it became difficult for me to look past that... or to wax optimistic, convincingly.
How can I advocate to a society that doesn't agree, that we need better educations and more civility?
There are people siding with the Putin's war right now.
There are people already dying by way of rising tides, higher temperatures and increasingly violent weather patterns.
And yet there are people that whole-heartedly do not believe.
It is decidedly difficult to work towards solutions, when the majority do not see, or acknowledge, the problem.
How do you disagree with the truth?
So in pondering my predicament, I thought that perhaps it would be more useful and less disturbing, if I were to move toward advocating for self-care. Focus less on the whole world, and more on individuals.
It was always my intention to use my blog to address my work in interpersonal communication, nutrition, personal training, inner peace, and common sense, as well as education.
I will start with this.
By the time that botched withdrawal from Afghanistan had people attempting to hang from the landing gear of the last plane to leave their airport (I assume you know what I'm referring to…) my nervous system was doing things to me that I could not explain.
Turns out, watching the news all the time, and knowing the full extent of how bad things are getting, had me physically ill. Everything made me nauseous, and the stress was ruinous.
I’m completely aware why people avoid hearing the news, and now the news is worse.
Such a dichotomy! I advocate for paying full attention to world events! Yet world events will undoubtedly drive me down a spiral of poor health.
So one thing I've incorporated into my 'headspace', in order to balance things out, is listening to soothing sound wave frequencies.
I've discovered Solfeggio Frequencies, which I'd not heard of before.
My life has always centered around music.
When I listened at work I'd listen to classical and jazz and even Krishna Das.
But now I listen to sound frequencies while I'm working, and here's what they're purported to help with... pain, stress, healing, releasing fear and guilt, making changes in your life, peaceful relationships, spiritual uplifting.
Believe me when I tell you, these are things I needed help with. I watch these videos on YouTube. They are available for purchase, but free on YouTube is a perfect way to explore.
I'm not here to say that this is a cure, or that the science of altering brain wave activity with sound frequency, is solid.
But it does make sense to me, and I have an open mind (tee hee) with regard to their efficacy.
The bottom line here, is that the world is a big place… perhaps I can be of more benefit to you, on an individual level. It may be time for us all to redirect our energies toward self preservation, while maintaining a healthy concern for one another.
I hope you still value my little 'blogging adventure'.
I also hope that you are well and happy...
