Baby initiation, gaining a head of steam

So I am about to write about the amazing week I am having…  I should start out by setting the context from the past year.

In a nut shell, I was locked into finishing nursing school in two years when I started developing some mysterious symptoms – arthritis, foggy headedness, nerve pain, etc.  It eventually got so bad that I withdrew from nursing school for a semester.

Fast forward to now.  I was diagnosed with chronic Lyme’s disease but I am taking a 6 month regimen of some potent homeopathic medicines specifically geared toward taking out that particular borrellia bacteria.  And 8 weeks in I am starting to feel much much better.

And then two weeks ago I was apart of a Craniosacral class which involved treating infants.  It was like that was the boost I needed.  It was a kick in the butt in a great way.  I now feel like, as a nurse I want to work with babies.  As an independent complimentary medicine practitioner, I want to work with babies for free – assisting mother and baby to release birth trauma and then giving their process back to them saying, “you are doing great Mom, keep it up!”  It was like I received a spiritual initiation of sorts – from the babies!  Yes, my bodywork teacher coached them through it, but they were the ones willing to show up and do the work.

And I am at a one week Buddhist teaching retreat with one of my first Tibetan Lamas, a sublime, precious, extremely-rare-to-meet teacher named Khenchen (his title) Konchog Gyaltsen.  Yes my personal Dharma practice got derailed by my frustrating sickness and from being in school.  But I intend to pick my practice back up.

I am tentatively committed to doing a pre- and perinatal training in Canada later this summer.  I am extremely excited about that.  I want to learn this work as quickly as possible and be of benefit to any babies and families in my area that need the assistance.  I wonder if I can get donations for my trip north of the border?  What do you think?

So I am excited about what this summer and the rest of the year holds for that matter.

Thank you ever so much for reading!
