Everybody gets the flus
We all had the flu during the last two weeks, by all I mean myself the two girls, my husband and the two cats. The dog is an outdoor dog and stayed well. The birds also stayed well which must prove that it was not bird flu .
Each of us was only under the weather a couple of days. Probably the poor Siamese cat Mocha was sickest but today she's back up and prowling our corridors in search for adventure. My sage plant will need some time to recover as my sage, strawberry leaf ,and rose petal tea was much in demand it is Very good for sore throats and other ickies.
People sometimes make snide remarks about people who practice Reiki, energy work and spiritual healing and still get the flu but doing energy work does not give super powers . Life is still Suffer what there is to Suffer, Enjoy what there is to enjoy.
The moment I began to enjoy the flu occurred when We got a flier in the mail for a weekend retreat that touted the spiritual advantages of rough camping, long hikes, fasting, Hot and cold soaks and all kinds of vigorous activities and meditations plus discussions on death and dying etc. and for this fine treat the fee was only $1200.00 a person. Wow to think of people paying for that experience when we were getting all the same benefits in the comfort of our home for FREE, courtesy of the flu!.
