Because I believe the universe runs on appreciation and gratitude, I was delighted to find Dr. Darren Weissman's website that explains his healing method called The Lifeline Technique. He uses the sign language for 'I Love You' in his treatments, and believes healing is a lot more simple than we think because the body is designed for self-healing.
I found Dr Weissman's site through Chyrene Pendleton's blog Prosperity is a State of Mind, which recently featured a webcast interview with him.
From Cheyrene's blog there's this quote from him:
"...When you say "Infinite Love and Gratitude" to the body while holding your hand mode in this "I Love You" sign, it instantly has an impact on the molecular structure of the water that makes up each and every one of the cells in our body."
Think its overly simplistic? There's only one way to find out if it works or not...

It's true Mercury Retrograde has built quite a reputation for always putting a spanner in everyone's works, but with Mercury in the magical, mystical sign of Pisces, it doesn't have to be all about losing yourself in boring communication breakdowns or head-scratching computer glitches.
For example, take this great tip from Mystic Medusa for working with the other worldly essence of this particular retrograde:
"Here is some easy "therapy" for Mercury Retro in Pisces. Sometime before the Full Moon Eclipse on March 3/4, write your own FairyTale. As in YOUR fairy tale. Once Upon A Time....etc.
And it has to be less than 800 words. Your quest, your treasure, your castle...and because - literally - only YOU will ever read it, you can feel free to cast whomever you want as wicked step-parents, handsome princes or mysterious guide figures. I always think it's interesting what stories we create about our lives when we know it's between us and ourselves..." (More from Mystic here)
So pass that feather quill and crack open the Laudanum, I'm feeling a Victorian-gothic mini-masterpiece might be about to flow...

It's comedian Eddie Izzard's Birthday today - 7th Feb 1962, which means he's what's known in astrology as an Aquastell.
From the Aquastell website there's this description of these folk...
"The Grand Aquarian Conjunction of February 5, 1962.
High above the noonday skies of the central Pacific, the Moon gradually devoured the Sun, in a spectacular total solar eclipse. Packed together within sixteen and a quarter degrees, five of the solar system's planets bore witness to the spectacle. This exceptionally rare and dense "conjunction stellium" took place in the constellation Aquarius, and was seen by many as heralding the first tentative stirrings of the "Age of Aquarius". Those born during the two weeks either side of this event have come to be known as the "Aquastell Aquarians of 1962". Astrology suggests that they will be the most extreme Aquarians in human history..."
Eddie Izzard has Sun, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, Mercury retrograde, and south node in Aquarius, which means he's an access all areas member of the Aquastell club. If you're wondering what wavelength the waterbearer works on, an Aquastell is a great subject for study because there's so many planets in that sign. Not all are comedian/actor/executive transvestite's like Eddie. But that's the Aquarian point - we're all snowflakes and finger prints.
With the Saturn/Neptune opposition between Leo/Aquarius in effect for some months to come, it's an interesting time for Aquastells everywhere, and for Eddie who has Moon in Pisces, the effects are hightened with Aquarius ruler Uranus's journey through Pisces.

Sun in Aquarius stands opposite Moon in Leo on 2nd February, for the annual full moon in Leo. For me, this energy is all about presence, our very presence in the world. It's all about how just by existing, we are powerful and valuable in this physical universe.
The Leo/Aquarius axis says we are all VIP's in this world (A Very Important Presence), and that it's a non-negotiable universal law that presence is power. However, we get to choose how we respond to that law - we decide what to do with that power.
What I'm trying to say here was summed up in a recent post by Elsa in The Power of Love and Friendship... when she said -
I do know that when people came into my life and treated me well, I responded by thriving. And it’s not that they saved me. I saved me. I did the work, while they supported me with their love, and appreciation for who I am… flawed or otherwise.
The main thing that happens when someone loves on you and around you, is you become stronger and consequently less tolerant of people who want to tell you that you suck! ::smiles::
And if you surround yourself with those types… people who consistently tell you that you are not worthy, by their words or their actions, well this is oppression and you are going to be reduced.
On the other hand, love brings total liberation. I mean, if someone loves you, they love you. Old, young, fat, skinny, blind, or in a bad mood… they still love you. And this sounds like freedom to me!
Elsa got it spot on for me there. I'm convinced it's appreciation (love) that makes the world go round. It's ever since I read the book Messages From Water, which Elsa also mentions in this post, and discovered the author, Dr Emoto, believes gratitude and appreciation to be the driving power behind the universe. I saw the photos in that book, and lost all doubt about it being any other way.
Imagine a universe that thrives on appreciation. Imagine how natural it is to be a powerful force in the world, a healing force; just by showing up and acknowledging another, by being a witness to their uniqueness in action, and by thriving under the warmth of receiving that appreciation from someone else.
I know that deep down we all know this is true. It's too easy to imagine and feel the joy of it. It rings bells and resonates too easily. We might have to search deep, deep down some/many days, but in our bones we all know the universe works this way, and that we are hardwired to co-create like this.
It's always a choice, moment by moment, situation by situation, of whether we do want to participate in this way; the choice of whether to support or deny our own, or another's life force, moment by moment, experience by experience.
But I really believe we all know instinctively it's that simple.
