3] While still in the musical vein, my friend Cici Porter let me know she has a new website. Cici is another great songwriter and singer who uses her music to not only entertain, but helps create awareness and understanding for those affected by childhood sexual abuse. I shared with Cici several years ago of a dream of her and I performing in Washington, DC some day when there is a Million Survivor March….someday it will happen. http://ciciporter.com.

4] Recently I was looking for some resources to share with my friend Holly…Cici suggested this site, so I will pass it on to all of you.

David Perry 11/6/2007 Review, The Dragon’s Tale by Lady J Talks:

From the cosmic to the warm and funny, I promise you that "The Dragon’s Tale" will be the most interesting philosophical work you’ve read in a long time.

The author, "Lady J." whom I am honored to call a personal friend, is a committed, tireless advocate for survivors of what used to be called "Multiple Personality Disorder" (I believe the condition is now called "Dissociate Identity Disorder") and has overcome a myriad of almost inconceivable hardships in her life. When read with these facts in mind, it becomes clear that "The Dragon’s Tale" describes (in microcosm), a courageous, sometimes terrifying journey to recovery, self-acceptance, and forgiveness.

What emerges from this ingenious and charming mix of dragons, wizards, dream-states, and humans is a radiant and inspiring glimpse into a strong and beautiful soul.

I applaud you Lady J. And on behalf of your many loving friends and fans, I thank you. David Perry.

The voices and words of Lady J are from the world she had to learn to live in while growing up in a family that did not understand that what they called discipline then would be tantamount to child abuse by today’s standard.  Coupled with being extremely sensitive to not only my surroundings, also to touch.  Which I believe in part increased the dissociate behavior on my part.  As the fifth child I was suppose to follow the example of my older siblings.  My parents often said in later years that I never listened to them which was why I was hit so much.  When they would yell I would dissociate from the sound which then brought out more anger when I was hit. 

I understand that these things were not known in those years.  What bothers me most today is that for all the knowledge that is known about all the conditions that they have labels for now, my family still does not recognize or validate these facts.  I understand mostly that they have no need to and it’s my belief that never felt the same as I did and only have their narrow view to believe in.  I’m the one that is labeled mentally ill and my conditions are only an excuse to justify my own behavior. 

Even after I allowed them to read my first story of my life, in my words and opinions, the greatest offenders told me I was lying, creating a great story as I always had, and one even said that I never told my father the through because I would have to admit my own complacency in what happened.  I chose not to tell him, one for the fear he would have to make a choice between my mother and brothers and myself.  The greatest thought was that I did not want him to feel bad for his last years over something he had no control over and nothing could be changed about it. 

My family think that I blame them for my life and condition which if they ever decided to get educated they would know that this is the farthest from the truth as they could get.  I had to accept my family and my condition so long ago that it makes me laugh when I hear anyone say that.  Those of us who grew up all those years ago all have had to accept that was was normal and acceptable back then yet still caused the creation of many different conditions even though what they considered real trauma and abuse, yes, even some still today think that way, was all that we can think of it.  Unless they want to consider that we were born with the chemical imbalance that cause us to perceive our world differently then the others. 

We’ll never know that for sure, so it makes no sense to argue about it.  Our lives was what is was, We survived/lived it the best we could, Made our way out of it and live what we can like today.  The effects are still with me, yet I’ve learned so much that it has made most of my life ok.  It was those years between making the connection with the cause and the life I had lived up to that point that has left the largest scars on my spirit.  This story a "Dragon Tale" was LadyJ’s way of giving purpose and some brief education to anyone who found themselves behind that door in their own dark place.  Mostly she says "Just look for the light".   

May you enjoy my look on life and some of the brief lessons learned along the way.  They are good lessons for anyone to use in their life.  My beliefs have come from years of listening and implimenting what worked for me into my world.  I’m not a person to push any special belief system onto anyone, yet by reading many, I have learned that they all speak of the same thing and there are many good words of wisdom to be learned from them. May your journey be safe and my your life be full of Light,  Jacki M SeiWell

                                    a “Dragon Tale”

will also be available as a FlipBook through Lady Jz Talk Zone and Duffy’s Closet web sites for viewing and purchase in cd/dvd forms.  The purpose of putting it to print here was so others could have a hard copy and also buy one for someone that they think could use it in their dark times.  Please visit us at http://ladyjztalkzone.com and see all the picture work that went into making a “Dragon Tale”. 

The clip art and other pictures where taken from the internet as they became the visual of what I pictured of the parts created.  I then took them and added them to my own picture of a real tree that I found behind a place where I once lived.  I believe all of them were free yet if you find one here that is not please contact me with the information. 

Lady Jz Talk Zone has been on the internet in many forms for the best part of the last ten years.  I’ve had support groups, a journal project called the “Echoes of Courage” where in seven women shared their lives with me online.  It will be one of next projects to come.  At the talk zone there is a sample of that book to come plus my own personal story of those things I could retrieve from the mind kept for many years in a special file I called “what they did to hurt me”.  It contains complete picture memories and words of hurt that I have felt.  Whether intentional or not, abuse hurts and stays with us for a life time. 

happy to forward this to everyone.  Have a great day! from Lady Jz Talk Zone

Greetings!
The beginning of June has always been a time of decision making for me.  Every year something comes up that needs to be addressed.  I am a Virgo-I love organization and this month is the time for me to make some decisions regarding my career.
I currently work part time at a trucking company in Green Bay, Wisconsin and also work on my home business "HealingMom Spiritual Training Center".  I have decided that I’d like to change my career from trucking to the medical field.  Spirit has been speaking to me regarding this and I have decided to go back to school to study Medical Transcription & Medical Coding/Billing. 
What does this mean for my training center ?  Well-it means that I won’t be able to spend as much time and energy for the next year.  What does this mean to you ?  Great Deals !!!  I am going to a "donation only" website.  I will continue to do a monthly newsletter, but have put my metaphysical studies on hold.  My website will be changing in the near future.  I will send out an email with the new website information as soon as I transition it over.  You can still order classes and pendulums at healingmom.com.
My new website will give you a "suggested retail price" for each attunement or class.  I will leave it up to you to decide what you can afford.  I encourage you to pass this newsletter on to anyone you think might enjoy distance classes.   I will again focus on my Metaphysical studies next summer.
Many Blessings to you this month

Green Corner

A website recently delineated a simple list of 10 ways that you can reduce your environmental footprint through changes in your food choices. The list is fairly straightforward and involves changes that any person in any country can make to reduce their carbon footprint. Substantive facts for each item are also laid out and explained along with a brief description of how the change can affect the environment in a positive manner.
Here the list of changes you can make to your food choices to reduce your environmental footprint:
· Eat less beef, pork, and lamb.
· Eat out at restaurants less often.
· Eat fewer dairy products.
· Drink fewer soft drinks.
· Eat seasonal and local fruits and vegetables.
· Eat fewer packaged snacks and junk food.
· Upgrade to an energy efficient refrigerator.
· Eat wild fish that are not endangered.
· Drink less bottled water.
· Walk to your local farmers market or grocery store.
You can see the full list here.
The great thing about this is that none of these actions are difficult, expensive, or time intensive to perform. In fact each of these activities, by themselves or collectively will probably make you healthier, better fed, and even happier.
If you think about how you can reduce your carbon footprint and make yourself and your household more environmentally friendly, it’s going to be small changes like the ones listed. Not everyone has the desire or means to move off the grid and live in a self sufficient cabin in the wilderness, but small changes add up, and small changes are sustainable and can be built upon.
This is also by no means an exhaustive list, there are many other changes you can make to your food lifestyle and consumption habits to reduce your environmental impact, but these are definitely 10 ways to start and get the most bang for your buck.

Thank you so much for your continued support. 

Sincerely,

Sandy Ruminski
