The Greening Healing Force

Good Day, God!

I saw this palm branch Friday morning and stopped and took a photo. The branch is growing old . . . but that the Greening Force is still working in it.

I like that . . . it makes me think of Hildegard of Bingen who talked about the marvelous Greening Force — than animates and heals us.

Dr. Victoria Sweet in her book God’s Hotel talks about Hildegard who declared that the primary task of the Healer is to remove obstacles to that Greening Force. Sigh. Those words are resonating inside of me right now, God.

In fact, they are reverberating.

What obstacles do I have inside me to remove? Brene Brown talks about the Shame that permeates our Society. Yes, God, it is important to remove and release shame. I guess shame could be defined as anything one wouldn’t want known? Ah, the Devil does love secrecy.

But in my case I think the biggest obstacle to The Greening Force isn’t so much shame as my busyness. Yikes! I LOVE doing . . . being busy . . . being stretched and being challenged.

Those aren’t bad things. But, they are fatiguing things. This last year I have borrowed from my Body’s Bank — my Energy Reserves — in order to do what I felt needed to be done. Now it is time to repay my Body and perhaps my tired Soul. Yes, it is Time to Restore, God.

And, in a funny coincidence, my oldest daughter, Suzanne, has decreed that I need fresh squeezed Green Juice. Apparently Green is the color of the Liver — and the liver channel ends up in the eyes. So, as a Good Mother should, I am following my daughter’s advice. I’m getting pretty good at running our juicer, God. And my wonderful husband is joining me in drinking The Greening Juice. Life is Good, God!
