From my Mother, I learned to cook, bake, refinish antiques, nurture plants and decorate with found treasures.
From my Grandmother, I learned to live close to the Earth, respect all living things, reduce my footprint with conservation and recycling, look for natural ways of healing the body and to study the old ways.
From my Shamanic teachers, I learned how to create my own rituals to signify my intentions, work with many healing modalities, work with community and to connect with my higher power.
In today's economy, I couldn't afford to buy a house, so I am building one for free using recycled materials and thrift store finds. The "Ark" was a floating, one-room schoolhouse that was found in the free section of Craigslist. The grand plan is to make it completely off the grid and self- sufficient.... a modern day ark to shelter me from life's storms. Come visit my blog the" Eclectic Ark" to see how my renovations are going. I believe in recycling as much as possible and to that end, I buy almost everything second-hand. I love spending hours hunting for treasures in thrift stores and flea markets. The "ark" is an eclectic mix of found treasures and recycled building materials, truly a one-of-a-kind home.
My other blog, the" Cyberangel Chronicles" is more of a personal diary of my weird and wonderful life. Lots of posts about living on the water there.
Many years ago, I was a passenger in a bad car accident that left me in excruciating pain for over seven years. Through trying to heal myself, I explored many healing modalities and spiritual beliefs. I eventually went to school to become a Registered Massage Therapist. I have continued to upgrade my education and have spent years studying the many ways to heal the mind, body and soul. This blog is my forum to share all that I have learned with you.
Radiate love and recieve good health,
