September 2018 Blog with Spotlight on Craniosacral Therapy and Interconnectedness

 Our Oil of the Month is Ylang Ylang.


In the last few weeks I keep running into spider webs.  For the past week, each day I open our front door and step onto our porch, a giant spider web has been built across our opening.  This has happened like 6 days in a row!  I think the spider is trying to tell me something.   So I looked up the metaphysical meaning of spider webs. 

A quick search brought me this information:

The spider is an ancient symbol of mystery, power and growth. We take our first lesson from the ancient symbol of the spider by contemplating its web. Just as the spider weaves a web, so too must we weave our own lives. Not only do spiders and their webs draw attention to our life choices, they also give us an overview of how we can manipulate our thinking in order to construct the life we wish to live.

Whoa. Powerful stuff. That last line really resonates for me particularly the part about how we can manipulate our thinking in order to construct the life we wish to live. For those of you who have known me a while, you will know that the spider has long been trying to get my attention.  I think I am finally in the place where I am ready to listen.

The message the spider brings not only to me but to all of us is about the interconnectedness of all things.  Some world religions including Buddhism view that everything in the world is interconnected. When Buddha gained enlightenment, it was the realization that we are all interconnected and that love is the true nature of all beings. We are not only connected to other people, but to the air through our breathing and to the universe through light.

How aware are you that the choices you make on a daily basis construct your life?  Do you choose health? Love? Peace?  I am choosing more wisely every day with new awareness thanks to the spider!


Craniosacral Therapy 

In September, I will be completing my 5th level training in Craniosacral therapy with the amazing teachers Natalie Kasdan and Anne Samojedny.  Of all the holistic modalities I have been trained in, craniosacral speaks to me the most.  So a little about this modality is below. re much more available on my website.


Craniosacral Balancing Therapy:  is a holistic healing practice that uses delicate  touch to assist the body’s natural healing ability. Following the rhythmical flow of the cerebral spinal fluid, the practitioner detects and assists the release of restrictions. Gentle touch on the head, sacrum, and other areas of the body can induce deep relaxation, improve chronic conditions, and release emotional blocks and tension as the body’s inherent vitality is restored. More information is available on my website.  If you have not had the chance to experience this modality, I would love to show it to you.
