Meditation

For those of you who have been reading my blogs or have read through my website have probably seen me use the phrase “create health” a few times.  Let me explain what I mean by this. Have you ever noticed that “normal” has changed?

We will start with Butterfly. As soon as I started to think about a name the word "transformation" kept coming up for me - in my head, in classes, in readings.  But using the actual word sounded too serious, too weighty, too burdensome.  So I started thinking about what in this world goes through transformations.  Butterfly, caterpillar, moth, phoenix, etc.  I ruminated on these for close to a month while I thought about if I wanted another word to go with it. Coming up with Blue came about a little more organically. I had already had it in the...
