The point of no return


A877833E-04B9-47EA-B572-EB714A54680E

Today I walked around Lake Como for the first time in several years. It’s only a mile and a half, but it was too much in the past.

There were points in my recovery where this would have been anxiety producing because a mile and a half around a lake looks like a long distance. Going for walks in places I wasn’t familiar with also caused anxiety.

I was afraid I wouldn’t make it back because I wouldn’t have the strength or stamina, especially once I reached the half way point where turning back wouldn’t matter because it was the same distance either way.

It’s a great metaphor for the events in our lives. You reach a point where there is no turning back and you just have to go through the obstacle.

So as I walked I thought about the halfway point and no turning back. Right at the halfway point in my walk this butterfly appeared.

Oh, how I have transformed in the last 3.5 years, which was affirmed by the butterfly showing up. I had no anxiety about taking this walk or dancing for an hour and a half at dance church yesterday day. The body has an amazing ability to heal.

Living in Your Heart

FDCADBA7-8466-46E4-9544-A5EF401E2DEE

Do you know what it feels like to live from inside of your heart?

The first time I felt it was five days before I had open heart surgery. I was so angry and disappointed when the doctor told me I had to have surgery. I want to run away from my life. Make this nightmare go away. I had truly been through so much already. I didn’t know if I could get through this. I cried a lot. I was afraid. I went to sleep that night in fear.

I woke up the next morning in such a state of peace, knowing this was the best thing for me. The fear was gone. The anger was gone. All I felt was a deep sense of trust that my path was unfolding in the highest and best way for me. I was fearless going into surgery. I felt I had received grace for some loving expanded presence.

I stayed in that space for over two months. It didn’t matter that I was in terrible pain and discomfort and my outer world was falling apart. I felt peace. I had never felt anything like it before and I wanted to stay there forever.

That is what living in your heart feels like. It’s a state of Grace.

Unfortunately I couldn’t maintain it.

It has been almost two years since I had surgery and I have dropped in and out of heart space, each time maintaining it a little longer. Each time I knew I had to dive a bit deeper into myself to remove more of what was keeping peace away.

I arrived again a couple of months ago…I feel so much peace, love and freedom. My wish is that everyone can feel this. I feel like all of what I have been through was so worth being able to feel such freedom and love. I want to stay here forever…

A Grateful Heart

68ABF220-518E-4042-BA87-983B516624B0

I have been overwhelmed with gratitude the last few days. I know I have said THANK YOU many times, yet this one is coming from a deeper place in me.

When you are in the midst of crisis/initiation it is hard to see the bigger picture. You just move from event to event holding on for dear life. From outside of the initiation you see clearly.

I was driving the other day when it hit me like a tsunami. I could see, feel and touch the support I got from this community of friends around the world and how it was a great part of healing my heart, the depths of which I can’t put words to, but I will try.

Right after the first heart attack, while I was still in the hospital, my guides said I needed to be very public about my journey. That scared me because we think it is much easier to suffer in silence. I am grateful I broke through my fear and shared my journey.

What happened Surprised me and healed my heart.

And so I Thank each and every one of you who has been part of this journey. I could see it all the other day, almost like a life review. You touched my heart, you helped me heal on so many levels.

To those who read my posts, dialogued with me, encouraged me and sent me love…
To those who encourage me and kept me going…
To those who visited me in the hospital…
To those who brought me meals so I didn’t have to cook…
To those who bought me groceries …often when my cupboard was bare…
To those who called, texted or sent messages to me to see how I was doing…
To everyone who donated money to the fundraisers, or send me money to surprise me. ..
To those who created fundraisers for me…
To my neighbor who has shovel my walk for 4 winters…
To my neighbors how supported me in so many ways…
To the doctors both here and in Europe who did life saving measures to save my heart.
To those who took me out for dinner or tea and spent time with me…
To those who drove me to appointments when I couldn’t drive…
To my kids who took this wild ride with me and dealt with their own suffering because of it so I didn’t have to worry…
To my cates, BJ and Charlie who did heart healing work on me several times a day and continue to do it.
To all of the healers, my Naturopaths, chiropractor who offer services remotely or in person…
To those who prayed for me and continued to through out this journey…
To my neighbor who took loving care of BJ and Charlie every time I was in the hospital…
To my dear friends who were with me in Austria when I had the second heart attack who held healing space for me while I was in the hospital for a week…
To my friend Kate who took the train an hour each way almost every day to hang out with me in the hospital and keep me sane, when she could have been painting…
To my adopted tree, Grace, for being a place of refuge when I could only walk from my car to where she stood in the forest…
To the group who did two healing sessions for me…
To everyone who believed I could recover and told me so…
To people around the world that I have never met, yet we’re there for me…
To long time friends…
To new ones…
Not one kind gesture was lost on me. I felt them all.
I am grateful from the depths of this beautiful, strong heart of mine. I could not have done it without you…thank you for loving me…
You all helped me save my life so I could stay on this beautiful planet.
You all have a special place in my heart ❤️

Healing SuperFoods

What is a Super Food?

Superfoods help optimize your body’s ability to function by supplying a megadose of nutrients. According to David Wolfe, a superfood doesn’t just boast one or two health benefits. It must have “extraordinary levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants”.

Although there’s no set criteria as to what defines a superfood, these are foods that are jam-packed with nutrients and can help provide your body with the vitamins and minerals you need to thrive, survive and feel great.

Include a few servings of the ingredients on the superfoods list into your day paired with a balanced diet and regular physical activity and you’re bound to feel better than ever.

Our superfood products are formulated by world renowned & gifted healer
Alexandria Brighton with science-backed ingredients shown to reduce inflammation. Inflammation has been recognized as a big factor in most diseases.

RETURN TO THE STILL ROOM

47ECCA93-3BCE-46E4-B3AF-559F6D1017A4

WE INVITE YOU BACK TO THE DAYS OF THE STILLROOM

When I was looking fo the highest quality, high vibrational nutrition supplements for myself, the idea of a STILLROOM approach intrigued me!

The Stillroom is a distillery room found in most great houses, castles or large establishments throughout Europe dating Barack at least to medieval times. Women were in charge of the still room and passed the tradition down to their daughters.

Women as healers and caregivers for their families and communities pre-dates written history. From time immemorial, women were expected to give birth, nurture, heal, protect, provide for and spend their days steeped in the tradition of the wise women before them; caring for themselves and their families, and quite often, the entire community.

The women’s art of healing reached its peak in the early part of the last century, in the time of the Stillroom. The Stillroom was a room separate from the kitchen, but within close proximity, that contained a still. Unlike the large outdoor stills used for making alcoholic beverages, the Stillroom still was a smaller, simpler version used to distil herbs to extract their essence for use in medication, cosmetics, salves, and other household necessities.

The Stillroom Recipe Book was passed down from mother to daughter. With the word “recipe” originally referring to a medicinal formula, and a recipe book for the Stillroom may contain everything from medicinal recipes to cough syrups, cosmetics, liniments, perfumes, pomanders, food preservation, jams and jellies, wool dyeing, candle making, and soap making much like some of the favorite recipes passed down from our ancestors are today. Everything that sustained and added quality of life to the family might be found in the Stillroom Recipe book.

Today, with the increasing interest in Aromatherapy, Essential Oils and other natural forms of health care, the arts of the Stillroom are again gaining recognition and are truly the birthright of everyone. Companies, such as HB Naturals, who want to create the highest quality products are returning to the Still room approach to product formulation.

Whenever you make a simple herbal recipe, scent a homemade candle, enjoy a potpourri from your own herb garden, make an herbal vinegar or preserve food, you are participating in the preservation of the tradition and the legacy from the long-forgotten Stillroom.

When the stresses of our fast-paced lives make us long for the simpler times, take out your Stillroom recipe book, select a favorite recipe and step back in time.

The modern day Stillroom must have a knowledgeable formulator.  In order to create the highest quality formulator HB Naturals has invited a world renowned formulator to oversea the still room.
