The General is a little hippie dippie in her holistic healing ideas sometimes, but there are other times that she’s right on target. So while it may be a little intimidating for me to shove a burning candle in my ear, I still tend to listen when she tells me something’s going to make me feel better and it doesn’t involve shoving a pile of pills down my throat. In other words, this whole I’m pretty down with these ancient healing/stress reducing ideas that are all over the place. Even this whole tibetan singing bowls thing I’ve been reading about lately. If a certain type of tone coming from a certain type of bowl can help me re-center myself after a really crappy day at work, for instance, you can be sure I’ll be sitting in the middle of the floor with a bowl next to me trying to do just that!
