So, after learning from the doc that I need to lose A LOT of weight to be eligible to get my knee replacements (at least from him), I'm back to dealing with the underlying issues, which I assume are similar to everyone elses, in the sense that they stem from childhood and are sitting in the unconscious, where they have become very difficult to access!! After many years of trying everything - losing and gaining, blah, blah, you've heard it all - I've decided to try the EFT tapping method.
One of the issues for me has been that I really don't like going to therapists, because I end up feeling like a victim, resist whatever they have to offer, and am then back to square one, minus a few (or a lot of) bucks. This therapy has the distinct advantage of being FREE and SELF-administrated, so I'm doing it, and it seems to help some. I'm sure that if I did it 4 times a day instead of just 1, it would be more effective, and that can always happen. 😸
I should've known better than to try to schedule knee replacements during this time. For whatever reason, it isn't happening for now, and is probably a good thing. You may think I'm too out there believing that it matters what some little planet is doing, but I do.
Seems clear to me - if we don't learn to love our home, we're going to lose it—or at least access to it, as IT will most likely survive us, if not entirely intact. So the primary goal of this website is to engender curiosity about something in nature—anything, whether it's an amoeba or the oceans. Whatever does it for you —get active, if you can, or get interested and support, if you're like me and are not able or inclined to tromp around in the woods.
I am an artist and writer, living off grid, in a strawbale house on the high mesa near Taos, New Mexico. I have four cats, and live amongst a variety of wildlife including, but not limited to: coyote, pronghorn antelope, elk, endless bunnies and jackrabbits (and myriad other rodents), ravens, mountain bluebirds, rattlesnakes, and tarantula.
The cats stay in, everything else stays out.
