Progress Report

Blog

A few days ago I sat down to blog and I couldn’t think of anything to say. Today, however, I am full of words..

There are at least three things I want to write about.

Firstly, I’ve been feeling so much better. Some days, like yesterday, I felt almost completely normal. I’ve been experimenting with adjusting my meds. I’ve now reduced the Sinamet from five and a half pills a day to just one and a half, thanks to Mucana Puriens – a velvet bean that has been used for milenia in the East – India and China.

Last Friday I had my last Lyme treatment.   Now we are going after parasites. Apparently, I am going to be tested for 200 parasites.

Secondly, I’ve been exploring the region around Bethany. I’ve visited several quaint, small towns – Port Hope, Cobourg, Burleigh Falls (on the way to Bancroft) wheere I visited the Gallery on the Lake in Buckhorn. I was blown away by the architecture and the art, including paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour, ceramics, blown glass, wood-turning, silk embroidery and jewellery. It was humbling and inspiring. I’m such a beginner!!!

Thirdly, I can feel the rebirth. I’m feeling well enough to the point that I think I might even be able to attend a retreat. I’ve been reading Byron Katie’s book “Loving What Is”, thanks to Mara Young who recommended her to me. She works with a method of inquiry using four questions. We are continually making up stories about ourselves and others. Katie encourages us to examine our beliefs. She is not telling me anything I didn’t already know. She has just boiled things down to four questions:

  1. Is this story you’re telling the Truth
  2. Can I be certain that it is true?
  3. How do I react when I believe that the story is true?
  4. who would I be without this thinking/story?
  5. The Turn around – This is about owning our projections. Sometimes turning statements 180 degrees. E.g. Jane should listen to me “ This could change to “I should listen to Jane” or “I should listen to myself.”

I’ve been experimenting with this process and I think it is helping me to shift to a happier, more loving frame of mind.

Thanks to all for your continued support and prayers.

    Dear Moira,

    What wonderful news! Your recovery is a miracle, but your own perseverance was needed, along with the practical support from family, close friends and healers. And you’re celebrating by appreciating places and ventures now possible again! Don Evans
