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?
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.
