Thank you for dropping into my world that has included Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Akashic Acupuncture. I view life from a Taoist perspective of living in harmony with paradox, the seasons, and the cycles of change. I also take an Akashic viewpoint where I believe the soul is eternal, we live many lifetimes, and that everything evolves out of a greater field of consciousness. I can think life is a ‘divine crapshoot’ except for the frequent synchronicities that appear like magic to show me there’s something bigger going on in the Unity Field that permeates all of life.
I see each individual as a multidimensional universe striving for meaning and wholeness. I also think that we take ourselves far too seriously—I should know being a Scorpio! However, I have found grace in humor and joy in crazy wisdom. My greatest allies have been found in Nature and her flora and fauna.
I have been practicing TCM for 33 years and reading the Akashic Records, that I refer to as “Akashic Field Medicine”, for 25 years. I lived and practiced in Tucson, AZ, from 2000-2019; practiced in Port Townsend, WA, from 1990-2000, and one year in Costa Mesa, CA. I received my training and OMD and MS (doctorate in Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture and Master in Science) in Orange County, CA, and post-graduate studies in Beijing, China, in 1989. I was one of the co-founders, with my Scorpio-composer husband, Alex Holland , of the Asian Institute of Medical Studies from 2000-2013 that has merged with the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine,where Alex has been president.
I officially closed my practice in Tucson on March 1, 2019. By the end of April, Alex and I had sold our beloved townhome, liquidated most of our belongings and moved with our two cats, Corky and BooBoo, to Ajijic, Lake Chapala, Mexico, just south of Guadalajara. It has been a trial-by-fire journey getting to el otro lado—the other side of the wall—but we made it and have adjusted to the marvels and challenges of navigating a different culture, language and state of being.
As a planetary citizen now in my seventh decade of life, I am more committed than ever to exploring and feeling the breadth and depth of existence. I gratefully greet and experience wondrous surprises that exist around every corner and behind each doorway.
I offer selective acupuncture and Akashic readings locally as well as by Skype, that can include astrological insights. Meanwhile, I will continue to record our adventures in “gringolandia,” via my blog above, and have recently taken on abstract painting that I also share here. So, please stay tuned and in touch!
This being human is an awesome and taxing journey! It takes Qi/energy to maintain balance between fluctuations of dark and light, Yin and Yang and the natural cycles of life. We have the opportunity daily to infuse more lightness into our lives through humor, curiosity and wonder. And now we get to tend to life with Covid, where we are being initiated into the new world ahead of us. We can’t imagine what that will be yet, except that we must make a pact with our Mother, Gaia, to take care of her so that she can take care of us. There is no separation.
So, may we die laughing, whenever and however we are called, after having lived a blessed, bountiful life; and may we rejoice in the great mysteries of spaceship Earth and beyond!
In gratitude and awe,
Linda Joy…AKA “LaJoy” or Stoner 🙏🏼❤️✌️💫
