I Had A Chinese Exorcism, And it Worked

In traditional Chinese medicine, the Seven Dragons treatment addresses possession.  Rather than just possession by spirits, the person is overtaken by beliefs or emotions collected in this life or a previous one.  They cannot live fully, and emptiness fills their eyes.  They are separated from the self.  My possession was anger.  The anger was stuck in my abdomen, she told me.  So, the Chinese Mrs. Kim silently said a prayer, and stuck seven points on my body with needles.  Each needle resonated like energetic ripples through my limbs and torso.  I began to relax, and think about my anger.

The Ritual of Letting Go

Drawn from Pegan beliefs, the November full moon ritual practices the art of letting go,  entering the new year with less baggage. 

Rituals come to us in various shapes and sizes, labels and religions.  They range from a bedtime face washing routine to elaborate holiday ceremonies.  In a well curated life, we draw and create rituals from our outer and inner inspiration. 

Manifesting The Reality You Want

One day, I noticed friends living blissfully positive lives that others envied.  They had what they wanted, and when life went awry, instead of panicking, they saw the silver linings in tragedy.  Apparently this all had to do with this little concept of manifesting.  My mind was blown, this woo-woo b.s. was real.  Our thoughts and intention impact our reality.  A bad mood turns into a bad day.  A lucky penny leads to a day of gratitude.  How often do the things we dread come true because we spend so much time dwelling on them?
