After the blog I wrote abouttravellast week, Makaela replied to say:

“Just like to mention, have travelled inIndia, & took thehomeopathic remedies for malaria...and out of a few of us, the only ones that got sick were the ones taking the prescribed medication for malaria...the homeopathic work a treat .....&Heliosetc. advise always for free...


WOW, that’s SO great to hear, Makaela, thanks for sharing that. I can remember taking rounds of the prescribedmalaria tabletsat least twice on travels in my younger days and they felt horrendous in my body, just as I’d heard they would be – nausea, headaches etc (and that from someone who was VERY accustomed to taking allopathic medicines at that point ;) Yes...veryunpleasant pills, so it’s WONDERFUL to hear a raw foodie success story with taking the homoeopathic remedy instead...thanks :)

Incidentally, while we’re on the topic ofnasty old medicines, I awoke one day this week to the taste ofthyroxinein my mouth – which I stopped taking6 years agowhen I went raw (after being on it for abt 12 years). WOW...where had THAT been hiding...??? ;)

I’ve been reading a couple of thePostsecret booksthis last week. Have you been over I’ve mentioned it before once or twice...I think it’s a fascinating project. If you’re not familiar, it is a ‘community art project’ wherein peopleanonymouslysend in their secrets that they’ve never told anyone before, written onpostcards. These postcards are then displayed on the website, at travelling exhibitions and some of them make it into the Postsecret books (4 books have been published so far I think).

Frank Warrenis the guy who started this project and had NO idea that it would reach the scale it has – I believeover 250,000 postcardshave been sent in since he started in 2005. People write in about all kinds of things – unrequited love, deepest wishes, traumas, memories, suspicions, doubts etc. The books are amazing little collections ofexpressed vulnerability, truth and sincerity. You can almost sense thecollective reliefof letting these things OUT into the world, out of each individual’s head ;)

I remember when I first started to get into ‘recovery’ work, as outlined in ‘Raw Emotions’, one of the things that struck me the most was connecting to the vulnerability, fallibility and ‘humanity’ of others – realising that, wow, other people do things or have done things they don’t feel so great about and it’sok to talkabout those things, share them, release them and hey, maybe even laugh about it all afterwards ;) This is the same kind oftransformative energyI perceive in thePostsecret projectand books too. Indeed, I’ve heard of people reading one of these books and it helpingcatalysethem into whole new life paths...beautiful...

Myfavourite piecethat I’ve seen in the 2 books I’ve been looking at over the last week seems to have been written by ayoung woman in Canada. She wrote that there were6 thingsshe felt unable to tell anyone – even herboyfriend, who she shares everything with. She wrote them down on 6 postcards and was going to mail them in to Postsecret. The next morning, she decided instead to leave them next to herboyfriend’s pillowas he slept and she left for work. A while later, he arrived at her place of work.

He asked her tomarryhim.

She said yes.

That actually moves to tears – I find theshift in energyso beautiful – that these things that have probably been holding her back from being fully present, open and loving for years are suddenlyinstantly transformedand released, in the light of acceptance and love. We’re all human. We all have aspects ofclutter and shadowbehind us – they don’t have to strangle-hold our experiences though, if we choose to let them out into thelight...

Ahhhhhhhhh, breathing deep withgratitudehere,

All love,
