I am a massive activist although I never coerce anyone into an opinion or division, but I love raising awareness of preferential choice, inequality, oppression and the unknown. So many women look at me gone out when I celebrate International Women’s Day of March every year. Good feelings!
So that is not crazy at all! So my partner used to be devoted Christian, and still is in some aspects, but then she opened up her mind the world, nature, grounding, free-thinking and philosophy. This led to her exploring Wicca, and then adopting it as her faith. So she does a lot of healing for me with spirit guides, healing crystals, natural herbs and scents, tarot cards and being at one with all religions.
I remember one day she said to me, as people, we are like trees with roots that interweave, but over the seasons the leaves shed, and go through the cycle of regeneration. She said the forest has a ‘keeper’ which maintains the health of trees, and the ‘keeper’ is ‘US’, all of us. That hit me hard.
I have always found with the american health system, in particular mental health, too much is assigned to medical categorisation and labelling. I am the least non-pc manager within my organisation, but I see more quality of life with this approach!
