Until next week,
Happy (Chinese) New Year!
When I realized that this column would arrive to readers on the Chinese New Year, I thought I might discuss my interest in Chinese metaphysics, astrology and other mystical aspects of Chinese culture.
The Chinese New Year takes place on the second new moon after the winter solstice. 2013 is, for those of you keeping score, the Year of the Snake.
As I said, my original intent was to write about the New Year, but I realized that all I could think about were my memories of the Chinese New Year 40 years ago.
It might seem odd that I still remember where I was and what I was doing on the Chinese New Year in 1973, but my recollection is clear, as clear as time will allow.
The Chinese New Year took place on a Saturday in 1973. It was the Year of the Ox. My family spent that year in Palo Alto, California, for my dad's sabbatical.
My mom believed that a good way to spend most Saturdays was to go to San Francisco's Chinatown. She loved the fresh produce, fish and intensely ethnic ambiance it proudly exuded. Mom loved to haggle with the shopkeepers and they loved it back. One Saturday, in early February, she got it in her head to go. Once something got in Mom's head, it usually became so. I was in my first year of college and I had nothing better to do, other than study, so it was an easy decision, plus I got to drive.
Off we went: my mom, dad, two brothers, infant sister and yours truly. I loved driving to the city via the Bayshore Freeway. It was insane. Bumper to bumper at ninety miles an hour was the normal flow of traffic. I could always feel the excitement of San Francisco as we approached. By now, I was a pro at getting around the city, often opting for the scariest hills possible, the ones so steep that you couldn't see what was in front of you, only the sky above.
I remember the energy that day in the Grant Street area, the main drag of Chinatown. It was absolutely exhilarating. I wouldn't feel that type of excitement again until I went to my first Mardi Gras in New Orleans. As we walked the streets, we realized that we'd been lucky enough to come on the Chinese New Year.
Bright colors were everywhere. The air smelled of food and gunpowder while thousands of revelers buzzed with anticipation.
Suddenly, the parade started. The place exploded with cheers, horns blaring, gongs sounding, laughter and yelling. Firecrackers, seemingly by the millions, were being set off. Lion Dancers pranced, martial artists posed, people waved and threw candy and then the moment all had been waiting for, the dragon began its twisting dance up the street.
The crowd went wild as the thirty-foot-long creature wound its way through the masses on the sidewalks and street. A man dressed in red, holding a large red and yellow ball on a stick, led the dragon through the crowd. The man would stop, hold the ball in front of a spectator and the dragon would bring its ferocious head close. Then, the person inside the dragon's head would give some sort of advice or divine the fortune for the year, the crowd oohing and applauding. I'd discover later that this ball was known as The Pearl of Wisdom.
The excitement built as the Pearl-Holder and dragon came closer. Suddenly, the Pearl-Holder ran up to me and stuck the orb in my face. The dragon came close enough that I could see the man inside the head, peering at me through the mouth-full of teeth. The crowd awaited the sage's advice.
The dragon yelled, "YOU GET HAIRCUT!"
The crowd burst into laughter. As the dragon pranced away amidst gongs, drums and horns, I stood stunned. My mom had uttered some variation of those words at least ten times a day for almost a year. I turned around to see her laughing so hard that tears were streaming down her face. She was leaning on my dad, who was also quite amused. She pointed at me and between fits of laughter squeaked out, "YOU GET HAIRCUT!"
I was the only one not laughing. Then I finally I got the joke. It was probably a different joke than what others were laughing at, but I did get it and I began laughing, too. There we were, a crowd on a sidewalk on Grant Street in San Francisco's Chinatown on the Chinese New Year, sharing laughter. I'll never forget it.
My parents have been gone for a long time. My siblings are grown, living happy and successful lives.
The Year of the Ox turned out to be a great year for my family, culminating with a trip back to my parent's homeland. Before that trip, for safety's sake, I got a haircut. The dragon's pearl of wisdom had not only been a social comment but also prophetic. My next haircut wouldn't occur for another thirty years or so. Old rebellion dies hard.
As you can see, this column isn't about the Chinese New Year, but about how important it is to realize that every single moment you're here may be the one that you want to remember forever. The people in our lives, our friends and family, are more valuable than anything any of us can begin to imagine.
When people remain vibrantly in your mind and heart for decades, when missing them never goes away and when you can still remember a laugh from long ago that makes you smile, for me, this is the very definition of love.
To all of you, Gong Hay Fat Choy and a prosperous and joyous Year of the Snake.
Until next week, I wish you peace and love.

I have actually been enjoying my enforced vacation out in the boondocks. My mother's wrist is recovering nicely and she needs a "ranch hand" (which is laughable if you know me) but I was her closest bet. Life on a ranch is interesting, if you're used to being in town. More dirt comes in the front door and suddenly you're dealing with "mud boots", and outdoor gear, and buckets of chicken eggs and coyotes and wolves and the daily lifestyle of all things rugged.
But one night during this dark moon week, I found myself out on the deck under a vast field of stars. The sky at night is not flat, it is alive and luminous and not quite black, exactly. More like a velvety indigo. And the stars are incredibly bright, like so many burning eyes staring down, twinkling their messages downward. Stars touch something in our souls. They remind us a part of us burns the same way, eternally, unstoppable.
So many visitors have come to the ranch and exclaimed about the expanse and the starry nights. And it is indeed magical. An astronomer friend of mine is always grumbling about "light pollution" that prevents him from setting up his telescope for night-time viewing of the stars. Now I know what he means! Here there is nothing stopping you from looking up and receiving what the stars have to say. It is nearly impossible to look up and see this and feel no possibility.

Did you know that you have an energetic umbilical cord directly connected to Mother Earth? Well, you do! I am an Aura Reader. I spend a lot of my time reading people's energy bodies. I have witnessed some really interesting things happening with our Earth Connections (Root Chakras) lately. Have you been experiencing fatigue, lower body pain, anxiety, a feeling of disconnectedness and instability? Well, you are probably experiencing a Root Chakra shift that has been common in most people in the last few months. Likely your Root Chakra is shifted off to your left, kinking your Earth Connection, reducing the amount of energy you are drawing from the Earth. This contributes to all of the symptoms I listed previously. This shift started occurring in November and is still a problem for many people. The cause is an interesting one. Beginning in November we began to ascend into the 5th dimension. Our energy bodies are infinitely wise and caught right up to the change in vibration. Our physical bodies are denser and therefore slower to adjust. This has caused us to experience a Root Chakra shift as our physical bodies catch up to our energy bodies.
So, what do we do about this Root Chakra shift? There are several options. One is to wait it out, your physical body will eventually adjust to the shift and symptoms will ease up. Another is to seek out and energy healer like me for a Chakra Balancing and re-alignment. You can also work on this issue yourself. Here is an example of a meditation you can do to re-align your Root Chakra, working with the Earth goddess Gaia.
"Visualize Gaia's solid, grounding energy below you, red swirling energy in the center of the Earth.
Reach out to Gaia, sending energy down from your root chakra into the earth. Feel her connect to your root chakra, anchoring your life force energy to her.
Feel the life force energy of the Earth course through you, energizing and balancing you. Feel yourself connected to a network of energy coursing through the earth, joining all living things in a web of life."
You will notice after this visualization that you will feel balanced and connected and your Root Chakra shift symptoms will clear up. Our energy bodies are so fascinating!
