I received the best news ever and that night I developed a cold. How and why is this even possible?
My greatest owned treasures, besides my jewellery, are books by Giovanni Maciocia. His books on Traditional Chinese Medicine have been my source of learning and inspiration for 20 years. I enjoy just looking at them on the bookshelf too.
Giovanni died a while ago and I felt a great loss. Imagine my surprise and delight when his son phoned me from the UK and asked if writing advertorials on his herbal products was something that I’d be able to do! His son said that there is so much information on his website and he didn’t want people not to access the information and products just because Giovanni died. This is a way to keep his legacy alive. You could not have offered me a more perfect opportunity.
So why did I develop a cold as a direct result?
I guess that my ego got a bit terrified at the enormity of the task and needed to slow my soul down. I am not a qualified acupuncturist or herbalist, but I do understand Chinese medicine and resonate with it. The target market is qualified acupuncturists in the United States, so I guess that my ego felt somewhat overwhelmed at the prospect of what I was to accomplish.
The reality though is that all I have to do is take what Giovanni has written and condense it to a short article to capture people’s attention and lead them to the Website for further information on the articles and products. I don’t have to reinvent the wheel; I just have to attach it to a smaller vehicle.
Becoming ill is a way for the body/ego to get the soul’s attention. I always want to know Why an illness occurs. The emotions behind illness fascinate me and I know from personal experience that one can rid the body of symptoms by finding, addressing and expelling the trapped emotion – subjects of further articles.
Time now to write the sixth article, how can it get better than this?
When I was a teenager, my mother did an astrology course and wrote up about my stars. Something to do with the 9th house and Pisces and Neptune, and she wrote that I’ll be very good at a variety of things but no specialization. I remember being a little insulated at the time, but it has proved to be quite true. (The 9th house also states that I’m untidy so that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!)
The photo is of my mom, aged around 55, at her graduation from college where one of her courses was astrology.
I have this philosophy that I’ll try something and if it doesn’t work, I’ll move on to something else. This drives my other half crazy, but it is my continual search for satisfaction – and money. Along the way I’ve garnered a wealth of knowledge on a variety of subjects but ultimately, health and health products have stood the test of time and remain my greatest interest, albeit in a variety of different guises.
So, I have redone my website, removed the pages to do with being a virtual assistant and offering basic photo editing because there was no return from them and now I’m doing all that I can to market Crowd1, whilst carrying on writing books and blog posts.
I was introduced to nutrition as a small child when my mom used it to treat an ulcer. Since then I've been interested in supplements, healthy eating, reflexology, shiatsu, energy work and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
