Just For Today, Do Not Worry

Just For Today, Do Not Worry

When you are attuned to Reiki, one of the first things you learn is the Five Principles of Reiki. The first principle is: Just for today, do not worry. Not the easiest thing to do for someone who jokingly says her middle name is Worry. Worry is everywhere, from the well-meaning advice from your parents designed to keep you alive to the news warning you about chemicals and bad guys everywhere to internal dialogues and concerns about raising kids and taking care of yourself to… well – EVERYWHERE! Today is a day when I am trying to avoid worry, too. I am going to the doctor to have a tumor I discovered on my shoulder evaluated and schedule surgery. It’s hard NOT to worry about it. There are so many unknowns and I have to wait for more information. I’m trying not to worry about it, though. There isn’t anything I can do about it now. Worrying won’t help. I am taking proper steps in having the tumor evaluated and removed ASAP, and I will do what I need to do to resolve it, ultimately. But this brings up a lot of other thoughts: Should I do more to avoid issues in the future? Should I change my diet? Should I do more yoga or alter my lifestyle? Is Paleo better or should I follow a vegan diet? Low carb or low-fat? Or maybe a juice fast? Will that affect my metabolism? What if it’s cancer? U.G.H. And this tumor is the tip of the “worry iceberg” for me. I have 3 children to worry about, a husband who is a...
Connection to Source/My Business Diva Tarot Spread

Connection to Source/My Business Diva Tarot Spread

Use this spread to connect with the Universe for messages on how to move forward I love trying out new tarot spreads. Every new spread I work with gives me a way of connecting ideas and advice from the tarot cards that I might not yet have discovered on my own. The spread I am doing today came from Joy Bott and was posted in the Tarot Travellors Facebook group. Personally, I’ve been wanting to connect with my Business Diva lately. My Business Diva would be the spirit or personification of my business – or how the Universe would advise me about my business. I loved how this spread came to life for me! I used the Rider-Waite tarot deck; it’s my workhorse right now, so it is sitting right in front of me most times. Here’s the original reading image from the Tarot Travellors group: Here is my spread and how I would interpret the cards.   1) Me or the potential I can reach should I apply myself. That last part is important – the King of Pentacles. I have everything with me that I need in order to be successful. 2) My Business Diva or the Spirit of my business. Judgment reversed. Loss of momentum and lack of follow through. Need to take steps toward finishing things. Could be moving on to the next level, but stuck in (my own self-doubts). 3) My relationship with my Business Diva. Page of Wands. Of course – the well-spring of creative ideas and motivation. I must embrace this in order to move forward or to right the Judgment card...

The Doreen Virtue Christian Conversion Conversation

Just to let you know, I started this in April 2017 when Doreen Virtue was newly born again and had said negative things about the Ascended Masters books and decks. I see that The Doreen Virtue/Jesus conversation has flared again, making me want to continue working on this piece to share my take on it… So, I’ve been coming across some really interesting information and debate in the New Age Spiritual Community concerning Hay House author and angel guru, Doreen Virtue. In the past few years, as many of you know, Doreen Virtue’s work and she, herself – as a brand and celebrity – have skyrocketed. She kind of cornered the angel market and held the reputation of the Queen of Angel Work for the past 10 years or so. Personally, I have read some of her books and I own a few of her decks. I even volunteered for her in Salzburg, Austria and in Zurich, Switzerland. I met many beautiful friends and business colleagues through her work and at those events. I’ve found her teaching style to be very easy to follow and, I think, well set up for people who are just starting to work intensively with their intuition and with different entities. Angel work, too, struck a chord with me. I’ve written about my experiences before and find the energy of the angels – or whatever you want to call them – soothing, calming, and just plain nice. When I call on the angels, I feel protected. When I ask the angels for signs they are with me, I often get something totally funny and...
Don’t Freak Out About A Bad Review

Don’t Freak Out About A Bad Review

  What should you do when you get a bad review? I see time and time again – people like you and me who are doing readings and putting their hearts and souls into their work – feeling down in the dumps about a bad review or negative feedback. Don’t worry, Sensitive Spiritual Entrepreneur! Bad reviews come with the territory. You have to learn to use some of the negative feedback you get to up your game – and also to fully appreciate the fact that you won’t please or connect well with everyone. Some of the clients even lie about their situations and then get mad at us for pointing out that we see the truth! Now, don’t think I am saying to ignore scores of bad reviews! If you are getting more bad reviews than good reviews, check your work. Are you giving your clients 100% of your attention or are you multitasking or having more than one conversation at a time? Are your kids making a lot of noise in the background? Is your connection clear and crisp, or do you need a new headset and microphone to chat on? Is your computer fast enough? Do you need to polish your psychic, communication, or typing skills? Are you staying logged in through the night, groggily answering chat requests when they wake you from a deep slumber? How’s your attitude? If bad reviews aren’t a common thing for you, then your bad review or feedback might be due to one of the following things: You don’t say what the client wants to hear Many of our clients are...
Overcoming Overwhelm

Overcoming Overwhelm

    Ugh. During the past year or so (maybe even more), I wasn’t walking the talk and I felt like a big fraud. My life got off course and out of control. I was stressed (understatement of the decade), overwhelmed, overworked, underappreciated, ashamed, sad, depressed, fearful, hopeful, curious, HUMAN. Just because I am a life coach and intuitive soul advisor doesn’t mean I don’t face my own trials in life. I have good days and bad days like everyone else. I will be quite honest with you – I make mistakes. I struggle. I do the wrong thing and I learn (hopefully). I need support and encouragement. I need an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on, just like everyone else. I am no island. I wanted to get this all off of my chest so that you could, perhaps, find some sort of connection – something that said, “Oh, if SHE is facing and conquering all of this shit, I can do it, too!” So, where should I start the story… Hm. It seems like it might have started with the birth of my boys… with me taking a lion’s share of the responsibility for being awake at night and in the morning and feeding them and doing all of their care because I was just used to doing things myself. (My husband is a pilot and, for various reasons like his responsibility for the lives of hundreds of people during his workday and fact that he is out of town most of the time, I felt his sleep and rest were a bit more important...
