The healing powers of my mama

Dear Marc, how do you feel about New Agers? I don’t think I would care at all, if my mother wasn’t so big on alternative medicine and treatments. She’s a psychiatrist, and have worked as a regular doctor and psychiatrist for more than 30 years.

The New Age wave brought her even more treatment alternatives when traditional methods failed. She’s now also into energy medicine, healing oils and various acupressure points. I find it hard to believe I even have chakras, but she tells me I do, and in all the right places too!

Now mom’s not above putting her methods to work for other needs too.
The other day, she was on the subway, caught up in a book on mindfulness. Her mind was so full that she left a bag with her favorite red linen jacket behind.

Mom did not cry. She used Reiki to bring her jacket back. Not only was the jacket returned by the subway people, but later that day, my mom found an identical red jacket in a store. These jackets are not easy to come by, she’s looked for an extra one since she bought the first one a few years ago.

What I’m trying to say here is that if you’ve lost a loved item of clothing, my mom might be able to bring it back for you. She’s not your regular doctor.


ps. Coming up: A real Marc Jacobs dilemma! Will be posted in a few hours or whenever my kids go to bed.

My mum used to do Reiki as well but I don't think she ever brought any items of clothing back. That would have been so useful when we were small...

Well -e, I took some homeo pathetic medicine once for a cold, but it didn't do much. But I remain open to unreality and this sounds promising. I just lost my favorite beanie. How do you pronounce that anyway, Reiki or Reiki?

I lost my favourite (well, only, but I loved it and a girl on a street in New York City said she loved it, too) trenchcoat on bloody Säfflebussen in Septemberw. They won't return my calls and I don't know how to get it back. Can she help?

A prayer to Saint Anthony, finder of lost goods? Of course, I just say "Dear Saint Anthony, help me find ... !"

"Prayer to Saint Anthony of Padua
Dear Saint Anthony, you are the patron of the poor and the helper of all who seek lost articles. Help me to find the object I have lost so that I will be able to make better use of the time I will gain for God's greater honor and glory. Grant your gracious aid to all people who seek what they have lost - especially those who seek to regain God's grace. Amen. "

What does your Mother think about that?

I like your blog: It is humble with that little tweak of wishfulness.
