New Moon-Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the Vernal Equinox

  The purpose of this reading is to provide guidance and insight about the kind of energy inherent in this powerful astrological configuration. And, to give you some insight as to the best ways to harness and work with the energy leading up to the Full Moon in 2 weeks. Overall, this reading talks of new beginnings, cycles, and working with our breathing to stay centered. Dolphin – Dolphin speaks to you of breathing and the rhythms of life. She tells you that in order to flow with the cycles of your body and of life, you must breathe the life force energy in to your body. Each breath you take infuses life-giving oxygen in to your cells, referred to in ancient cultures as prana, chi, or manna. Dolphins learned a long time ago to use their breath in rhythmic patterns to connect to the Divine energy coming from Great Spirit. Breathwork is also used to break the limitations and dimensions of physical reality so that you may connect to the Divine and bring back gifts of messages, and answers. Be mindful of your body rhythms and the patterns of energy being fed to you from the Divine. Ride the waves with Dolphin, and break the barriers that keep you locked in to patterns that don’t serve you.

I get intimate – the Divine Feminine Spotlight Podcast

Last month I was interviewed by Shann Vander Leek of Transformation Goddess, for her popular podcast series, Divine Feminine Spotlight. It was a lot of fun, and I shared some very intimate details about my personal life and work. I’d love for you to take time to listen and tell me what you think. You will notice that I make a special offer towards the end of the interview, and I would happily extend that same offer to you, just for listening. Check it out here: My...

Psychic Slime! It’s everywhere!

If you are a sensitive person, and you feel things more intensely than the next person, it is likely you are an empath.   Empaths are folks whose most acute sixth sense is one of feeling. They feel and sense everything – including other people’s energy & emotions, the collective energy of the world, and the effects of environmental ravaging that is happening to our Earth Mother.   They often feel when something is “off” or when there is tension in the air.   If you suspect you are an empath, it’s vitally important to take care of yourself and love yourself, so as not to be overwhelmed by all the feelings and energy that are constantly bombarding you. Before I make suggestions about taking care of yourself, I’d like to explain something I think of as psychic slime, or psychic debris.   Psychic slime is the leftover energy of a negative, stressful situation or person. It is a sticky energy entity that attaches to you in your energy body, made up of your chakras, aura, and other energetic anatomy.   Typically, psychic slime will attach to your aura and you won’t necessarily be aware of it because there are so many things coming at you. And, sensitive people tend to zone out and numb themselves with outlets like sugar, caffeine, alcohol, video games, shopping, and other addictive behaviors, so they don’t have to feel so much.   When our energy body becomes cloudy or weighed down with this dark, sticky sludge, we feel tired, overwhelmed, brain-muddled, depressed, anxious, down, off our game – I could go on here,...

I Hear Voices in My Head!

Lately, as I’ve been working with clients, listening to what they are dealing with and going through, I’ve seen that so much of our unhappiness is self created.   We get caught up in the whirlwind of thought some refer to as the “ego mind,” and we ruminate on why we aren’t good enough, why something will never work, that we “should” do this, or “shouldn’t” do that, and so on, and so on.   Sound familiar?   Hey, we’ve all been there. Many of us live “there,” in that negative head space, or we visit frequently, choosing to limit ourselves and our lives by listening to that voice inside our head. And truly, most of us have more than one of those voices.   It helps to identify those voices – give them names, and, sense where in your mind or body they live. For example, my internal naysayer is named Negative Nancy and she’s in the right side of my head, towards the back, behind my ear. When you locate and identify those voices, it becomes easier to tune in to the voices within you that are your Higher Self, your intuition, your Angels and Guides.   Here’s another thing – a way toward healing. When you catch yourself going down the rabbit hole of self-criticism, see it as an opportunity.   It’s an opportunity to exercise self-love and self-forgiveness.   Self-love and forgiveness are True paths to healing and wholeness, regardless of the origin of the initial pain or trauma.   Treat yourself as you would treat someone you deeply love. Replace those negative thoughts with...

Positive Politics?!

Originally written/posted November 7, 2012   I have the benefit of not watching TV. I haven’t had my TV hooked up to cable, satellite or antenna for 11 years now.   And I don’t miss it.   Most of all, I am happy not to have it around election time, when things get nasty & grown people behave in bitter, ugly ways. Why do elections bring out the worst in people?   It’s good to be passionate about beliefs. It’s good to engage in political debate. It’s good to stand up for what we think is good and true in this world.     But, what is good and true in the world, really?   I can tell you that it’s not getting ugly, being condescending, spouting hatred and lies. It’s not wishing ill-will upon folks that hold differing opinions, beliefs or politics.     It’s fair to say that many, if not most, of us feel that our political system needs an over-haul. It’s fair to say that we all feel depressed, angry, frustrated and condescended to during election time. We could go on & on & on & on about the problems and what’s wrong with the system or this or that politician.   That is easy and we’ve engaged in this conversation for some time now.     I propose another approach entirely.   But first, let me ask you – How’s that hatred working for ya? What good things have come about because of your anger and frustration? Do you feel like your wheels are spinning and spinning and you are getting no where fast?...

You are POWERFUL

Originally written/published October 22, 2012 My dear ones – I love you. ALL of you. I know that many of you are in pain, or suffering from difficulty or very serious health issues. I think of you often and send love & light your way. That said, I would like to share an important thought with you: I will not seek to pity or feel sorry for you, because I *know* that you are POWERFUL. I feel that in so doing, I DISempower you. While I love and support so many of my loved ones who are up against tremendous health issues, I will seek to inform and empower you. Pity & sorrow are not the kinds of energies that lift one higher or engender healing – those energies hold a person in the place of dis-ease and I will have no part in that. I may empathize, love, even cry with you, etc., but you are more powerful than that, and I will always be here to remind you of your power when you have forgotten or misplaced it....

What did you just say?

Originally written/published October 8, 2012   The other day I was giving a massage to an older woman who obviously takes good care of her body, and remarked that I could tell she was doing a good job of it because I can feel the healthy muscle tissue. She responded by putting her body down. She had no health issues, was on no medications, looked good, felt good except for some stress tension, and had no history of disease, surgery, allergies or injuries. I urged her to appreciate her body for its excellent health, not to take it for granted. And there I was, having this conversation with yet another client. So I am going to have this conversation with you, too – LOVE your body!  Yes! Love your body! Tell your body you love it and appreciate all its done for you.Change your language around how you look at your health and your body, and you will change your relationship to it. You will also, most likely, change your health for the better. There are numerous studies and science that proves our thoughts and words impact our cells & the health of those cells. Concepts like neuroplasticity and neuropeptides have been proven to be real, providing an undeniable link between body & mind.    The thing is, our minds & our thoughts can be changed, programmed if you will. When we catch ourselves saying the same negative things over & over again, we program our cells to believe those things. So why not program those cells to be happy and healthy? We do this through the use of...

Love Yourself, Love Your Life!

Originally written/published September 20, 2012   Many years ago, I read a very important book – You Can Heal Your Life, by Louise Hay, the founder of Hay House Publishing. This book is life-changing and, at the time it was published, it was truly ground-breaking. Louise learned through her own struggle with cancer and through working with the AIDS community, that disease and health issues stem from unhealthy or negative mental and emotional patterns. To help heal these issues, Louise found that by using affirmations and positive statements to replace the old, unhealthy ones, people were changing their thoughts, their health and their lives!!! If you were to ask me which book on healing I most recommend, “You Can Heal Your Life” is it.In fact, by just reading the book and doing the exercises therein, it feels like healing and transformation are taking place. After I read it, I began using and working with affirmations and noticed I began feeling more positive and witnessed my life getting better. My thoughts became much more positive and less self-critical. I felt inspired. It was as if my mind had become different, somehow. Like the “ho-hum” thinking switched to “life is good & so am I.” Every copy of You Can Heal Your Life that I’ve ever had, has been loaned out – permanently – to other people. I never get the book back when I loan it someone, and knowing how transformative it is to read, I would never presume to ask for it back. I know that people need it. A few years ago, after attending my first “I Can...

Self-Care

This entire blog is predicated on my belief in Self Care. This is a philosophy I’ve formed over time, but I got the term “self care” from famous author and life coach, Cheryl Richardson. She wrote a book (that I have not read) called, “The Art of Extreme Self Care.” I liked her term, and so have adopted it. Self Care means to take care of oneself, on every level of health – body, mind, spirit & heart. Self Care means doing all the things that you must do to care for yourself. It’s all those common-sense things that we know we should, or must do – things like getting enough sleep, eating healthy food, resting & relaxing, exercise, fresh air, etc. It means having healthy habits and mechanisms by which you care for your self, in place throughout your daily life, to manage stress and tension. It means engaging in activities that bring you enjoyment and allow you to relax. Things like reading, cooking, spending time with loved ones, dancing, listening to music and so on. Self care means limiting your exposure to toxic chemicals, people, food, environments & activities. It means caring enough for ourselves to remove from our environment, things/people/situations/thoughts that cause stress and disease. It also means replacing bad habits with new, healthier ones. Self care is looking to one’s future by doing things in the present moment that promote longevity and a sense of happiness and well-being.One of the reasons I think that our health is so important is because to be healthy is to be happy – without good health we have nothing!...

You are a Minister!

I woke thinking about this. Regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs and practices, you have a ministry. And you have an impact on the lives you touch. Your ministry is made up of your family, friends, people you work with, your community, and strangers you cross paths with through daily activities. It’s your Facebook friends and others you interact with on social media. Having a ministry means you have responsibilities. It is your job to interact with everyone in ways that are honest, loving, healthy, uplifting, inspiring, and revealing. It may be something as simple as flashing a smile at a stranger you pass on the street. Or, being honest with your friend about the unhealthy choices they are making. It could even be kicking your addicted adult child out of the house in an act of tough-love. As you go through your day, everyday, bear in mind the sacredness of each interaction you engage. Check your intentions, and be sure of where you are coming from. Are you coming from a place of Spirit, of love? Or are you coming from a place of fear, ego, and unhealthy patterns? Spread love, smiles and joy. Be truthful – hold your convictions in a loving way. Don’t judge, but hold an honest mirror of support. Help, but don’t enable. And, if need be, walk away and cut ties, sending love and light in your wake. The work we do is Holy. Each thought and intention, every word we utter, any action we take – it is all sacred. There are consequences to everything we do. Choose to make your...
