The Catching up of my Soul

I am trying to reach out a little more consistently for those that would like to be a part of the Natural Health Clinic of Des Moines community!

I have been home now a month after our trip in Ireland and Italy!!  I left feeling sad about the loss of several significant relationships in my life and the terminal diagnosis of my Dad’s illness.  There were several situations where I had to stretch my inner authority to speak my truth and step up to responsibilities beyond what I have had to do in the past.  ” You never know how strong you are until strong is the only choice you have”  by Bob Marley.

In Ireland I read a sweet book called Anam Cara A book of Celtic Wisdom by John O’Donohue.  Anam Cara is Gaelic for ” soul friend”.  The book created wonderful images through the stories, wisdom and the landscape of Ireland in relation to friendship, solitude, love and death.  It spoke to me and the time away helped my soul catch back up to me…. from the very busy and demanding world I perceived before I left.  A slower pace, good food, loving husband, sister and friends, a couple good books, beautiful landscapes and places of worship all helped renew me!

Excerpts from Anam Cara:

“There is such an intimate connection between the way we look at things and what we actually discover.  If you can learn to look at yourself and your life in a gentle, creative and adventurous way, you will be eternally surprised at what you find.  If your sight is poor, the work becomes a blur.  In a similar way, if your thoughts are impaired or if they are negative or diminished, then you will never discover anything rich or beautiful with your soul.  We have to imagine more courageously if we are to greet creation more fully.  ”

These words and more inspired me to open … and look for the door when I hit the  wall.  Thanks for your patience while we are away and looking forward to your next visit!

We have a wealth of groups, speakers and activities coming up at the clinic.  Look at the website calendar and newsletters for details!  Have a beautiful day.  Dr. Lynn
