Sliding down the slippery slope

Ask me what I've manifested in the last couple of days and it doesn't look pretty. I attracted two rages from people with borderline personality disorders, and gave a pretty close proximity of one myself, actually two. One hissy fit was in stupid response to accusations, and the other, quite unsolicited, precipitated by a yawn. How did I slip into this vibrational slot ?

Aside: I'm listening to Chuck Palahnuik's delighfully creepy new novel "Diary" - It is sprinkled with weather reports. If Chuck had seen me the last few days he'd say something like: The weather today is overcast, with a vibration of uncontrollable rage, precipitated by perceived abandonment. The two day forecast is a deliberate attempt to transform the impending storm into consciousness. He'd say it much more eloquently, though.

In response to the energy I am attracting, I have decided to do something that is known in the wholistic, shamanistic trade as a liver cleanse. Here's the Chinese take on this issue from Zhang Huang's, "A Compendium of Illustrated Texts" (Tushu Bian), Ming Dynasty:
"The liver is associated with wood. It stores the blood and is the home of the hun spirits. Among the seven human emotions, only anger is of an intense nature. It dries up the blood and dissipates the hun spirits. The person who understands the way of nourishing the liver, therefore, never throws fits of anger"

Suffice it to say that cleansing the liver means cutting out all fat (with the exception of Omega 3's), all dairy products, sugar, white flour, all grains, all sweeteners except Stevia, alcohol, caffeine and salt, and adding delectables like cumin, cayenne, flax seed oil (which definitely tastes like it came from a fish, not a flax) and cranberries. I will admit that while my liver relaxes into good health, some of my parts are hoping to disappear entirely.

Esther Hicks, channeling Abraham, suggests that one change one's thinking before one embarks on an action. So here's what I'm thinking. I feel better when I fast. This "plan" is like a feast, compared to fasting . I can notice the changes in my energy and state of being as I proceed. I hope for a reduction in fascial pain. I hope for an improvement of energy flow through my feet., thus relieving the leg pains that awaken me.

In the spirit of things, as suggested, I now offer an invocation to the Canopic god of the liver, Kabexnuf:

I invoke thee, Kabexnuf, thou Child of Horus. Awaken thou hawk-headed one. Turn now thy gaze from thy place in the west for a child of Osiris summons thee. Be thou a steadfast ally and empower this symbol of life and regeneration with thy protection and vigilance. Help my body to separate the pure from the impure for such is thy domain and dominion. Oh Sakhet, thou sun in thy brilliance, call forth Kabexnuf who stands in thy service. I invoke thee, Kabexnuf, that my liver be made pure.

Photo note: Fish are a rich source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. They are also slippery, and symbolize my present condition, as in, dead fish.

It was pointed out to me that this photo looks surprisingly like the astrological sign Pisces too.
