I rarely make posts here, but I decided to add another to Mystical Gypsy, so that I can change the photo of myself from the dashboard, without removing the eczema blog.

The photo attached to this blog is a piece of polished Moocaite, a rock that is mined in Western Australia. About six weeks ago, I first noticed this rock at an outdoor vendor's table. It is the same table where I purchased a piece of Sugilite in June of 2008.

When I first saw the piece of Moocaite, I was drawn to it, but reluctant to make the purchase. During the following week, I thought of the rock. I even woke up one morning, believing I was dreaming of the rock from Australia. Because of my schedule, I had to wait several weeks before I could buy this piece displayed in the photo. I love it! The rock hound who sold this to me quickly made a cage for my new piece of rock. I wear it as a slide.

I expect, in the future, I will return to discussions of my eczema. The condition is not resolved, but I am in a place where I can go shopping or out to dinner with friends. Everyday is a tightrope walk to managing this condition.

Facial Eczema

Beginning 23 July, 2010, I suffered from severe facial eczema. I tried everything to resolve the issue, including regulating my diet, using Vedic Astrology, staying out of the sun, leaving my partner, modifying my vacation, going to allergists, dermatologists, acupuncturists, naturopaths, Tarot card reader and remote healing. I did other things, like chanting, cleansing breaths, no breaths and Reike. In a way, I found my best advice buried in Vedic astrology, the Rig Veda and time.

The biggest thing I learned is that with all of the herbs, all of the rest and all of the expert interaction and help that came my way, it was finding my own way that gave me the most relief.

I write this with inspiration from Secret Notebooks...Wild Pages, http://secretnotebookswildpages.blogspot.com/
