August ended with a lot of haze from the fires in BC. I hope your lungs did well despite the air quality! Did you know that air filters sold out in many places on the island? It’s kind of a bummer that some needed to resort to that, but the breath is so important to us all. We still live in a very lovely part of the world and sometimes we just need a little help with our health. There are many reasonably prices home air filtration systems for under $200 that help keep the air inside the home free of dust, mold, and other particulates. You might want to consider a HEPA (High efficiency particulate air) system as well, as its the level of filtration that hospitals use. Some people report sleeping better and breathing better while sleeping with it in their bedroom.
And now comes the “F word”….yep, I’m going to type it: FALL. It used to be my favorite time of year, especially Halloween! But I feel that we were denied a bit more warmth in August because of the smoke in the air. Schools have started so the 30kph is in full effect around schools, but we should be aware of all reduced speed zones in our neighborhood and especially as we commute. There are lots of cyclists around and keep an eye out for the random pedestrian! They come out of nowhere sometimes. Next will be the leaves falling and raking the yard. Gardening is never boring. I’ve found a few random bulbs thoughtfully replanted by our neighborhood squirrels and find a couple of nice surprises in the spring with tulips popping up in places I know we (my husband) didnt plant.
I like to say that our bodies and minds are high maintenance – there is always something to work on. I introduce to you !Logosynthesis https://www.logosynthesis.net/(Logosynthesis https://www.logosynthesis.net/)!. I’ve been working with a Life Coach over the past year and she introduced me to this very simple and easy to use system for getting rid of attachments, that is the simple explanation.
Here is more: “Imagine saying a simple sentence and feeling how fear, anger or shame are being pulled out of your system. Imagine how the causes of pain and sorrow stop hurting you.
Logosynthesis is an amazing new system of healing and guided change. It uses the manifesting power of words and phrases to resolve negative beliefs, to let go of fear and trauma, and to lift the burden of grief or physical pain.
Dutch/Swiss psychologist Dr. Willem Lammers has transformed ancient knowledge and modern theory into an elegant model for guided change, for personal and spiritual development: Logosynthesis.”
