Wonderful Personal News

I need to express my gratitude and share wonderful personal news.

If you’re a close friend, or have read “Share My Insanity: It Improves Everything,” you know 2001 began ten+ awful years for me. (“Share My Insanity” might be misleading in this context. The dismal years did not include the hell of mental illness. Thank my gods! And to anyone trolling for gross injustices, the book and its title was supported by many members of the mental health community. In fact, writing the book probably helped me not go insane! Back to my point:

I’ve had a miraculous turnaround over a period of months. When it comes to the light at the end of the tunnel, I’ve gotten through a decade-long darkness, and am reveling in light. Financially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically I’ve been doing great for a substantial time now. (So I figure I can trust it enough to mention it publicly.)

My enormous physical improvement is relative to how I have been. I am still seriously ill and weak. But some friends did ceremony with me to end that, so mote it be!

I thank my gods for the power to keep working my spiritual and magical tools the past 10 years so that I overcame my challenges.

There is one particular spiritual discipline I need to mention: Serving the community. Despite everything that was going on, the gods continued to use me as a channel. It blows me away. Apparently, my deep inner turmoil did not disqualify me from being their vessel. I continued my work as a shamanic guide.

Had I not continued working, my soul and body would not have healed. I am grateful my gods gave me the ability to serve despite tremendous illness and spiritual pain. When we serve, we ourselves heal.

To celebrate, I’d love to hear what *you* are grateful for. Please post!
