Winds of Change 


 ~~~ REMEMBER WHO WE ARE

     As the earth moves beneath our feet and new mountains emerge from the depths of the sea, all that was hidden must now be revealed.  With nothing left to cling to and and no one to blame, we ourselves, immersed in the ocean within, diving below the surface again and again while it all rises up to meet us.  And so we learn to breathe into the turbulent waters of our emotions to find the inner anchor that holds still as the winds of change and uncertainty blow through our minds, our homes, our world.  Nowhere left to run,    right here,    right now,    open,     ready,    
it is time to return to wholeness to remember who we are.  ~~  Melissa Myers

The winds of change are blowing.  A big shift started with the full blood moon eclipse at passover and continued with the cardinal cross, where 4 planets lined up in the sky to form a cross.  The last time 2 planets lined up, the Vietnam war ended and the 60"s revolution began.  Now 4 have aligned.  I talked about riding this change in my last newsletter.  The changes were topped off by a solar eclipse on Monday, April 28th.  I felt these two poems spoke best about the changes and the advice I would give.  Remember anything unpleasant is simply old energy needing to be cleared, feel it, let it go,  breathe through it!  It doesn't define you!  It is not who you are!  This is your chance to be free!  Relax into the flow of change.  The heavy stuff is over.  You notice people being nicer to each other.  You will feel and ease of movement and grace in your life.  Know that grace is always there to support you.  Relax into the grace.  Spend lots of time in nature listening and healing!  Look for the angels and your loved ones around every corner.  It's a new day, It's a new life, it's a new world!  All is happening in Divine order for our highest good and happiness!  It is finished!  It is done  and it is so!

~~~~~I STAND TALL

The true story, the one that resonates most, is that I stand on good ground, on solid ground.  I stand rooted in the truth and love and light and wellness.  May I hold my arms out wide and my head up high and stand tall like the tree upon this earth while the stories of fear and false beliefs flow past me like leaves being carried in the wind.  ~~ e.g. wise

Wonderful Baby


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light , not our darkness, that most frightens us. 
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous.  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small doesn't serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.  When we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberated others.

~ I believe this quote to be from Marianne Williamson but not totally sure.~

Dazed and confused?  Feeling disoriented?  Unable to keep on track?  Exhausted from trying to "make things work"?   Then you are right on track!  We resist change and want to stop change because we can not control it.

Hope for the New Year! 


    GIVE ALL TO LOVE; . . . FOLLOW IT UTTERLY, HOPE BEYOND HOPE. -  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy New Year!  A very happy new year it will be!  2013 was a year of letting go and clearing out so the new, higher vibrating energies can enter.  In 2013, we were just feeling our way around the newness of it all.  Now, new life is gathering speed.  Love, peace and joy are breaking down the old systems.  The old paradigm of life is deteriorating rapidly,  which can be scary for some.  Now is the time to do things differently.  Choose the new, especially when it comes to thoughts and beliefs.

In my morning meditation, I was attempting to alleviate some pain in my shoulders.  I asked my shoulders what they needed and the very loud response was, "I'm tired of being aggravated by the thoughts of your mind!"   WOW!  So my body was telling my soul (listener, witness) that it was tired of my hurtful thoughts.  WOW!  A key component of our evolution is being present with our bodies which, most of the time, we ignore completely.  The judgments and fears I kept repeating in my head where causing the pain in my shoulders.  In the awareness of that cause, in being present with my body, I anchored into the peace in my heart.  The pain went away.

     THE BRAIN IS A MUSCLE. GRATITUDE AND COMPLAINT ARE EXERCISES.  WHICH DO YOU WANT TO BUILD?

 ~~ ACCEPTANCE IS THE DOORWAY TO LOVE.  LOVE IS THE ABSOLUTE ACCEPTANCE OF WHAT IS.  - Panache Desai ~~

It has been  two months or so since my last newsletter.  Again, much has happened to us all since August.  Great shifts in the earth's energy as well as, our own, continue to unfold on a regular basis.  I m feeling great peace and ease after all the turbulence.  I learned a lot in these two months.

On my way to yoga class, Thursday, August 22nd, I was hit broad side by a drunk driver who then drove away.  Now, one might think that was a bad thing!  In that moment I was hurt, angry and felt abandoned!  My ego screamed, "How could You let this happen to ME!"  Even in that split second, God's love and care made manifest in my life. 

Blessing #1:  My head, neck and shoulders were in a lot of pain and my body was bruised.  My hands were the worst, burned and bruised by the airbag and the jarring.   All the pieces were put into place for my recovery.  Doctors, acupuncture, massage, reflexology, yoga, reiki, self care and so much love and care from others brought me to wellness.  No permanent damage.  Nothing broken.  No concussion.  Aside from a little more work on my hands, I am healthy and whole.  Miracle #1

Blessing #2:  A couple and their son witnessed the accident and stopped to HELP ME!  The woman took a picture of the driver's license plate with her cell as he drove away.  Then she came over to comfort me.  The man directed traffic until the police arrived.  It is a very busy intersection at 6pm.  The couple gave the officer and myself their phone numbers and the woman offered the license plate number!  Miracle #2

Those are just the blessings that occurred in the first 30 minutes of the ordeal!  As I was riding in the ambulance, I had an epiphany.  Even though my humanness was in pain and my mind was fear filled, my soul part was identifying the blessings.  Two parts functioning at once.  Ego/Soul.  The ego was raging and fearful, while the soul was witnessing God work things out.  Some how I knew this.  The accident has been a long process of recovery and legal and insurance challenges.  Yet, there were only brief moments of despair.  I did not loose sight of God and fall into negativity.  That's another miracle and a sure sign of the times.

   ACCEPTANCE IS THE DOORWAY TO LOVE. LOVE IS THE ABSOLUTE ACCEPTANCE OF WHAT IS.

Contemplative Questions 


~  "What new can I fill those spaces with - what is ready to transition in me?"  - DeAnne Hampton

July was a very difficult month for me and my family.  We experienced four deaths of family and friends.  Two were especially painful for me.  I have a good relationship with grief, a comfort zone, so to speak.  I can also channel the other side and speak to loved ones in Heaven.  These two qualities along with strong intuitive skill are some of the reasons I went into a career of energy healing.  These abilities allow me to aid people in death/dying or grieving a loved one through the modality of reiki.  I know my loved ones suffer no more and are embraced in unconditional love.  They speak to me at times and send feathers, animals and many other signs.  This gift is not unique to me, simply address your loved ones and ask them to show you a sign, even be specific, and they will let you know they are near.  If you think it is them,  IT IS, or that thought would not occur to you.  Irregardless of these talents, I am still human and must grieve.  I cried.  A LOT!  I drummed in honor of one loved one and lit candles and did rituals for the others to honor them, say thank you and good-bye.  Ritual is an important way to move through grief.  Grief is not like any other emotions.  You process through it in your own time.  It is not simple released.

REJOICING IN ORDINARY THINGS IS NOT SENTIMENTAL OR TRITE.  IT ACTUALLY TAKES GUTS.  EACH TIME WE DROP OUR COMPLAINTS AND ALLOW EVERYDAY GOOD FORTUNE TO INSPIRE US, WE ENTER THE WARRIOR'S WORLD.      -  PEMA CHODRON.   

What a fabulous month was May!  I could be biased due to my birthday being May 26th!  The world just looked so new, so beautiful.  The tree blossoms, the fullness of the flowers, I even noticed a new bush at the end of our yard full of white flowers.  I think it might actually be a blue berry bush.  Can you feel the power?  Can you feel the love?  Feel it inside yourself.  The God of your creation is waiting there for you.  I have found new strength and a new peace I haven't felt before.  These qualities and so many more are blossoming in you as well.  The changes are taking place in day to day life, in each moment, within each person.  We are shedding old beliefs, trying new things, finding out what we truly believe in and standing up for ourselves.  The old ways of believing and ACTING are no longer producing results.  The world of negativity is collapsing, like a house of cards, because there is nothing left to support it.

New light, new energy, new life has entered this world.  It is miraculous.  We are being challenged to RESPOND  to life as it occurs in each moment rather than REACT to fear, judgments or old programs that no longer work.  All of life is brand new.  If you find going on with busy-ness as usual difficult to accomplish, CONGRATULATIONS!, You have arrived in the new world.  The door is open to make new choices and see with new eyes.  Release old prejudices and preconceived actions.  The changes and healing occur within us first, then the outer world will respond.  It is time to decide what kind of person we want to be.  What is needed in your life?  Where does it feel empty?  Do you need courage, joy, peace, clarity?  What thrills your heart when you think of it?  Your inner child is waiting to break free, to approach life with awe and wonder.  Creativity and playfulness bring new life.

Spring Fever 


~THE HILLS ARE GREENING, FLOWERS BLOOM; THERE'S BIRDSONG, NESTMAKING AND GARDENS WAITING FOR BLESSINGS. WARM HEARTED, WE STRETCH IN THE SUN, WALK BAREFOOT IN THE NEW GRASS, BEAR THE SPRING RAINS WITH GOOD CHEER AND GRATEFULNESS.  PASSIONS STIR - FLASHES OF SWEET DESIRE, HOT LIGHTNING OF ANGER, GUSTS OF GIDDINESS, HEARTBREAKS OF GRIEF AND FITS OF UNBEARABLE JOY.  HOW TO MEET THESE RELENTLESS TREMORS?  DANCE!  -  Marian Spadone  ~

Such glorious spring days!  I am so happy to be alive.  The beauty of nature enriches my life.  I had the privilege of basking in the setting sun at Frances Slocum park last week.  I felt phenomenal after the experience.  I drew the warmth and glory of the sun into my body.  The cool liquid of the water and soft breeze balanced out the energy.  I felt the power of the earth supporting me.  These energies are always available even in our own back yard.  Maybe you are drawn to the night energies.  Bathe in the light of the moon and stars.  Each part of nature offers it's own frequency of healing.  Connection to nature is connection to the Source of all.  Divine Source created the planet.  Actively connecting to nature can create peace of mind and strengthen and soothe the body.  Wellness is found in nature's vibration.  You can connect to nature indoors as well.  All matter is made of energy, people and the earth, trees etc.  Simply stretch out your energy field and connect to the earth, trees or stars.  See how much better you feel. 

The following is a simple meditation to connect to the incredible power of the Mother Earth:

Take 3 deep breaths. 
1st breath say silently "With this breath I choose to release all stress."  Then inhale deeply. . .exhale completely.
2nd breath say silently " With this breath I choose to release all tension in my body." Inhale deeply. . . exhale completely.
3rd breath say silently "With this breath I choose to release all thoughts and questions."  Inhale deeply. . . exhale completely.

Silently set your intention.  "It is my intent to connect to the sacred heart of the Mother Earth and receive her nurturing love in all its forms."

Soul Beautiful 


"A MAN SOULD HEAR A LITTLE MUSIC, READ A LITTLE POETRY AND SEE A FINE PICTURE EVERY DAY OF HIS LIFE , IN ORDER THAT WORLDLY CARES MAY NOT OBLITERATE THE SENSE OF THE BEAUTIFUL WHICH GOD HAS IMPLANTED IN THE HUMAN SOUL." ~ Goethe

Each soul is beautiful; unique, creative, innate beauty.  This planet is gloriously beautiful and each day on it is a gift.  Gratitude and appreciation of the beauty in each person we meet will bring us joy.  Appreciation of natural and man made creations will give us peace.  If we focus on beauty, it expands because we are grateful for the gift of it and we expand our own positive, beautiful energy which in turn expands the positive energy of the world around us.  Pay more attention to the beautiful and less attention on the negative.  Time spent on positive focus and thought will benefit us in unbelievable ways.  Our happiness is too easily "obliterated by worldly cares." 

Beauty is all around us.  Since 12-21-12 incredible amounts of light, positive energy are pouring into the earth and into us.  It will continue to increase.  I feel it in my heart.  I know it in my soul.  You do too!  The negativity which has been a life long battle is slipping away.  I am receiving healing and new techniques of spiritual practice that are moving me forward into a joyful, creative, grateful existence.  I have a great sense of peace. . .

Love Another 


To love another is to see the face of God  ~  Victor Hugo
What a profound statement of the meaning of life.  These are the last words of Jean Valjean in "Les Miserables", the musical adapted from Victor Hugo's novel.  "The Miserables" lived in horrible poverty and oppression under a decaying government.  French peasants who came from nothing, had nothing and died with nothing.  Yet in deplorable conditions the meaning of life, the hope and purpose of living is revealed.

This I command you, love one another  -  John 15:17

We have entered into the Golden Age.  All the corrupt and negative behaviors we adhered to in the past will not survive in the light of the Golden Age.  Lying, deception and selfishness will no long breed success.  Focusing our thoughts on love will catapult us into joyful and fruitful lives.  We have the opportunity right now to create a different future.  Devastating calamities and erratic weather patterns might directly reflect our negativity and fear. What we focus on expands quickly now.

May my mind and heart be pure and true and may I not deviate from the things of goodness - Marianne Williamson

Well my belly is still full and my feet are tired from shopping! (see workshop below!)  What a great Thanksgiving!  I hope you had a great day too!  I wanted to offer thanks to all of you who love and support me.  Thanks for reading my newsletter, thanks for attending my classes and workshops, thanks for reiki sessions.  Thank you for blessing me by sharing this sacred, creative journey of life.

I'd like to share another meditation with you.  God continues to bless my life on so many levels.  Contemplation of gratitude creates a richness, fullness and abundance in our life.  It creates more love.  I work through this meditation when I feel a sense of sadness, loneliness or lack.  Read through the gratitudes, not all will apply to you but allow them to spur your own offerings of gratitude.  Feel how your heart begins to open with every offering.  Play some gentle music, sit back and relax and create love and abundance in your life. 

I am grateful for my body, even with it's aches and pains, it can still walk in the sunshine or climb the stairs to sleep in a warm soft bed.  My hands are strong to do work or clasp another in friendship.  My voice can yell, sing and speak the truth.  I can see the sunlight on the water, red berries on a leafless bush; see beauty all around me.  I can hear the laughter of children. I enjoy the smell of morning coffee and the taste of Thanksgiving feast!  I am grateful for my body.
