Hitch yourselves up folks, it’s gonna be a cranky ride. I’m not well and of course that means I will share my grouchy feelings. Tossing them out here for all to see.
Right, well the Jr Mints near-death experience was quite comical, but only because it really didn’t kill me. Tonight I am sitting here in a different type of discomfort, and we can’t figure out why. I either pinched a nerve or pulled a muscle in my back, where my shoulder attaches to my spine. We don’t know when and we don’t know how. It just hurts like a son of a bitch, and for a while there Daniel thought I was having a heart attack. Not funny. But we are moving past it. Remember how I was reading that Sylvia Browne book about healing? Well, when I didn’t throw up, but when I also couldn’t stand up because of severe vertigo, I insisted he practice the Hands On technique. (I always make him read these books with me, it’s easier than trying to explain it to him later.) I also took my trifecta of pain relief and rested on the warm waterbed for a bit. Seems to be helping. Whew, death averted. Again! (This is getting tiresome, I’d like a day when nothing threatens my life.)
Here’s my other complaint du jour. Just as stupid, but it’s annoying me lately. My hair is growing back, quickly. Which is wonderful, and kinda fun to watch. But…. it is also going through these obnoxious stages when it is just in my way. Right now it hangs in my face, at exactly mouth level, when I brush my teeth. Can’t toss it over my shoulder like when it was really long, and it won’t stay tucked behind my ear like when it was shorter. (I know, I should be grateful I even have hair. Not the point today though.)
Last rant, then we can take a deep healing breath and move on to our soothing cards to make us all feel better.
I have to stop buying Bottle Caps! I just found them again, but now I must ban them from my snacking purchases. They are made by Nestle. I have to boycott that company due to their over-seas baby formula practices. It’s sad, and I’ll have to enjoy my last few tonight, then try to find another candy that will take their place. Not going to be easy, nothing else is like this treat. Nothing! Standards and stances must be upheld though. *sigh* It’s very difficult being me sometimes.
Buffalo ~ Prayer and Abundance
Buffalo was not only the sign of prayers being answered but was also a major source of sustenance. It gave food, as well as all gifts of itself for the survival of the peoples. The Medicine of Buffalo is prayer, gratitude, and praise for that which is received. Buffalo Medicine is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred.
Buffalo was born with a desire to give the gifts that its body provided and a willingness to be used on Earth for the highest good before entering the hunting grounds of Spirit.
To use Buffalo Medicine is to smoke the pipe in a sacred manner, and to give praise for the richness of life to be shared with all races, all creatures, all nations, and all of life. It means praying for the good of all things in harmony, and accepting the Great Mystery as a part of that harmony.
Buffalo Medicine is a sign that we will achieve nothing without the aid of the Great Spirit and that we must be humble enough to ask for that assistance and then be grateful for what we receive.
One last item, but this is not a bitchy whine, simply a public service. I will add it to the Important Things blog roll here soon, but save this address, he will have some really cool stuff to share very soon. Terry Blackshire.com This is a good friend of mine. He’s just getting started, so this is very new. Thought we could share the love and check in with him every so often.
