Here in Santa Barbara the weather has been very summery. Although I've thoroughly enjoyed that, my heart desires to see a solid 2 or 3 weeks of rain to soothe poor, parched California! I know that you're desiring the same thing, therefore let's hold California in our highest of vibration/wishes for the gift of water to shower Mother Earth and all her children. And if any of you know a rain dance or two, please start strutting your stuff!
Speaking of water, last month I promised you that I would talk about the Kidneys and the planet Mercury. In the 5-element theory of Chinese Medicine, the Water element governs the kidneys, bladder, adrenals, hair, reproductive organs, bones teeth and hearing. Therefore healthy kidney function is incredibly important to our health. Mercury governs the element of water on earth. Mercury corresponds to the north, winter, conserving, gathering, dormancy, death (the stage just before growth, spring), fear and gentleness, cold, salty, putrid, rotten and the sound of groaning, the same principles as the kidneys in Chinese medicine.
When our Kidney Qi (life energy) is weak, we can experience problems with water metabolism, urination, fertility, and sexuality. We may become anxious, fearful, and withdrawn (Oh dear- that sounds a lot like me), and in more severe cases, phobic i.e Sidonglobophobia the fear of cotton balls or Anthrophobia the fear of flowers to name a few!
Kidney Qi declines with aging. Some symptoms may be diminishing hearing or ringing in the ears. In menopause, the Kidney yin declines, which is associated with classic signs of heat and dryness – hot flashes, night sweats, dry skin and mucous membranes. Kidney yang weakness is associated with cold – cold extremities, cold back and belly, declining sexual vigor, urinary frequency or incontinence. CAM is an excellent treatment to keep kidney function optimal.
As Jyah Hoy best said it, “On an emotional level, unsteadiness, fear and an unwillingness to face our spiritual pain are all symptomatic of disconnection from the deep wisdom of our bodies and our relationship to life itself”.

As for Jada Delaney CMT /Jadabug, beautiful things are happening on the business front for both San Francisco and Santa Barbara. Stay tuned as I will share updates. I continue to seek out the best teachers and healers and absorb their wisdom like a sponge. My practice is enhanced by these associations, and I improve my service to you, which is the whole purpose of my constant research.
Love and Grace, ~Jada
"Why you continually stay close to my heart and mind, I'm unsure. You came to my home and I didn't know you'd be working on my belly, I hadn't let anyone near my belly since I was a child. I was filled with fear at first, but stayed silent and accepted the healing. I wouldn't say I'm cured of fear, but you pulled the curtain back and offered me a glimpse of love." ~Kellie Michelle
I'm on a mission to finding my true self. Letting go of the old identity I've created to find the new. I would love to have you there to witness and to share the experience.
