Free Docuseries About Brain Health

My mom made me aware of this “Broken Brain” 8-part docuseries of free information for anyone who’s suffering from or knows anyone facing brain challenges like ADHD, Brain Fog, Autism, Depression, and/or Dementia. I would also include people with Lyme Disease, Candida or Traumatic Brain Injury as likely to benefit from this information. I’ve not had a chance to listen through the full first episode, but I’m posting this while you still have time to catch the talk. You can watch the series trailer and sign up here.

The series focuses not only on brain problems, but also on how to foster optimal brain health, energy and mental clarity. I have no connection with this series, but I know a lot of blog readers and clients have found me through Lyme Disease, Autism and TBI support groups. Just wanted to pass along some inspiration and empowerment.

Druidcast 129 ~ Philip Carr-Gomm on Creativity, Story and Magic

This afternoon, I finally had time to catch up on the December 18, 2017 Druidcast, which includes a question and answer session with Philip Carr-Gomm from the OBOD East Coast Gathering. Interspersed with lovely and haunting music, the discussion explores creativity, inspiration (aka Awen), receptivity, the power of Story, and the ethics and expression of magic, ceremony and cultural sharing — especially looking at Maori and Hindu crossovers with Druidry. Here’s the podcast link for anyone interested in the talk.

Timothy Glenn on Zany Mystic Tonight

Just a heads up for Timothy Glenn fans: Tim will return to Zany Mystic tonight, Saturday, September 30th at 7 p.m. Pacific time. Details here. UPDATE: if you missed this broadcast or want to listen again, you can do so at https://bbsradio.com/podcast/fireside-chat-zany-mystic-september-30-2017 .

Two Links: Cat & Kaehler and Zany Mystic and Timothy Glenn

I’m still spending most of my time off blog, but I wanted to share some links that I know many readers will find inspirational and supportive.

The first is a vulnerable blog post by Catherine Grace O’Connell, sharing details about her own abusive childhood and younger adulthood, as well as the new podcast/talk radio show she’s co-hosting with Kathy Kaehler. You can find the article here. I know many readers and clients have tried to put the pieces together after sexual abuse and/or alcoholic parents. Cat & Kaehler’s new show focuses on redefining and empowering women over 50 by sharing the inspirational voices of women who’ve broken through their victimhood and ageism and into fabulous and inspiring lives. The podcast happens on Tuesdays at 11 a.m. Pacific or 2 p.m. Eastern.

The second announcement is for all the Timothy Glenn fans out there. His articles are always so popular on this blog, so I wanted to share the link to his recent return to A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic.

I’ve not had time to listen to either of these programs, but I know many Lyme survivors have found great encouragement through Catherine’s story. The Fierce Fifty Campaign reaches out beyond the Lyme community to women over fifty and also to Millennials — so it’s a great bridging of women celebrating all ages. Tim and Zany (Lance White) always have great on air chemistry, so I’m sure this show will delight anyone who has enjoyed their many previous chats.

OK, back to sessions, packing and sorting … I wasn’t going to post others’ announcements, but I know these two have particular spots in readers’ hearts.

Rune Soup with Mike Clelland

While catching up on other tasks, I’ve been listening to this fascinating discussion between Mike Clelland and Gordon White. Given their shared interests and the number of people Mike and Gordon know in common, many of us knew it was just a matter of time before this conversation happened, but I’m so glad it did!

I got to know Mike through a series of conversations and emails as he interviewed me for a chapter in his next book. I don’t know when that one will be released, but if he puts even a fraction of the time into each chapter as he did with mine, then Mike promises to deliver a beautifully mind blowing book. If you’ve not yet read his book, The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee, I highly recommend it for anyone with interest in shamanism, synchronicity, reality shifts, owls, paranormal experiences, and/or synchronicity.

Now … back to sessions and packing!

 

Edible Flowers

I just got a newsletter update from the Phoenix-based Agriscaping with Justin Rohner. We have snow on the ground here in Indiana, and I know much of the East Coast is undergoing “Snowmageddon.” Who doesn’t like flowers, though? If you live in a warmer climate zone, you can grow these now. If you’re shivering inside, you can start planning for spring or just enjoy the virtual blooms:

Lyme Disease Prevention and Resources

In response to some reader comments and emails, I wanted to post a couple links today regarding prevention and resources for Lyme Disease.

First comment from PeaceNowFlower: “Hello Laura, I heard the early Spring was causing an epidemic of Ticks in many areas. If you have a post you can republish to give your readers knowledge about how to prevent or treat early Lyme, it might be a year to post it early like the early warmth.”  Here’s a link to a May 2014 post that still holds true today:

Protecting Yourself from Lyme Disease includes my own tips, as well as a tick protocol by homeopathic MD, Dr. Ronald Whitmont.

Also, from blog reader, Linda: “just read this article by a Toronto [psychotherapist] who wrote a book on Lyme disease (Lyme Madness) in the hopes of waking up mental health professionals to the reality of Lyme.  Her adult son has it.  Thought you might find it interesting/of use:  Lyme is All in Your Head.”

When I clicked through to the article, I realized it’s by Lori Dennis, whose interviews by Catherine Grace O’Connell you can find linked on my blog by clicking here.  Lori is both compassionate and extremely savvy about the mental/emotional/neurological side effects of Lyme Disease, as well as the insurance and medical reluctance to look at Chronic Lyme. She’s a mama bear advocate, driven by love for her son, and I love how the article notes the role of mothers in addressing and changing the narrative about this disease.
Big blessings, healing and safe hiking to everyone!
