Autumn-a Harvest of Healing

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

As I’ve gone into my latest round of the battle for wellness, I have been overcome by the generosity and kindness of clients, friends and strangers who I know will soon be friends. As someone who works in the metaphysical field, I am a strong believer in the healing properties of crystals, and received this week, a bundle of amazing crystals and gifts, from all over the world: the UK, Los Angeles, and Australia. Although I have cut back on some of my readings to allow myself some time to heal, I have been doing healing sessions on myself using the powerful healing tools of crystals I have also been doing distant healing sessions for various clients, when I am up to it, and I am a firm believer of holistic healing. Crystals are G-d made creations, that carry with them the healing vibration of the earth. For someone like myself, who is know as “The Queen of the Fiaries,” because I have what’s known as fairy-like energy, and feel very strongly connected to the earth, I have found crystals to be amazing, although it is important to understand that, as with any healing technique, you have to understand the proper way to use them, place them and maintain them in order to  receive the full benefits of their healing properties.

I also received a handmade healing crystal plate, specifically designed for purifying the blood and healing the liver, as well as an array of various healing wands, spheres and healing chakra discs, to heal and strengthen the energetic aura of both myself and my clients. I am extremely excited to embark on a new chapter following the recent full moon and eclipse, as well as the Jewish New Year, with the highest intentions to embrace perfect health, for myself, and clients alike.

The other gift that I have received and found priceless in my healing process, is the gift of music. As many of you know, who follow me on Instagram and Facebook or Twitter, I have once again, fallen in love with Jessie J.’s music. The lyrics of such songs as “Who You  Are,” “Harder We Fall,”  ”Casualty of Love,” “Stand Up,” and “Do it like a Dude,” are among the musical armor that I use in  my fight against leukemia. Several of you have asked why Jessie J.’s music has been so significant during this time. The answer is simple and complex all at the same time. I have been a fan of Jessie J.’s music, since she appeared on YouTube at the age of 21, in 2009, singing original songs in her bedroom and bathroom in the UK. Because of that, I know the words to every song on each of her albums, and I have watched her progress as a singer. She also encompasses many of the values, humanitarian desires and character traits that I also feel are extremely important during an age of multiple selfies and a society that becomes more and more seduced by the importance of physical appearance and materialism as a status symbol. Jessie J.’s music stresses the importance of being a strong woman while also embracing one’s inner beauty to exude on the outside, the beauty that first stems from the inside. Also, as I find myself, often the only female, in an office with male doctors, to work on a treatment plan or in a professional scenario, find myself the only female on a conference call with police officers and detectives, all of whom are male, or helping multiple male lawyers intuitively with their legal case strategies, it is important to embody a bit of a masculine persona, to gain respect and truly be heard. So, before such scenarios, you will find the song “Do it Like a Dude,” preparing me to create that emotional shield and tougher exterior, that doesn’t naturally present itself otherwise.

Then, during times of disappointment or needing to release emotions that arise from my personal journey , or as the remnants of my professional journey, such songs as “Who you are,” help me to embody that, as the lyrics say, “It’s okay not to be okay.” Therefore, although her music has always been present in my life since she came on the music scene in America through YouTube, her words have taken on a more profound meaning through the vibration that penetrates both my personal and professional life right at this moment. Many of you who follow me have also heard me mention the resurgence of my desire to sing, as singing has always been a lifeline, to keep me afloat during the most turbulent of storms, and for that reason, I have recently begun doing singing lessons with a teacher again, in exchange for readings. Jessie J.’s vocal acrobats, perfect pitch and organic vocal ability, touch me in a way that very often brings me to tears, such as in her song, “Burning Up,” which is an upbeat, sexy dance song. She uses her breath vocally, that is technically difficult and rhythmically perfect, not to mention that she’s singing in her chest belt, notes that are considerably high to sustain in that vocal range, for a majority of the song. As I sat for two hours yesterday waiting at the clinic for blood to be drawn, Jessie J. was my companion and I soon became a Party on Wheels, as three other patients began singing along. A nurse who was passing by commented, “You always bring a party when you come here. Thank you!” I think it is important for medical professionals to see their patients in the middle of their battle, come to life with music, as a reminder that each one of us is more than blood count numbers. Each one of us is more than a diagnosis, and each one of us have plenty of “fight,” but have to find unique ways of putting that armor on day after day. So, for me, right now, more than  ever, music is life, and Jessie J. is the oxygen during times when anxiety or fear can make breathing difficult.

Wishing everyone a fall harvest of health and an autumn full of colors, and new leaves on life, that outline the next chapter in your journey, leading to  a warm and healthy winter.
