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...

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...
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...

Oh For The Love Of God And All Things Holy!

Seriously. I don’t know where or how to begin this. Maybe with a link to a post I once wrote about Owning Your Human-ness. But the conversation is bigger and wider than just that. You see, for some reason, many people believe that spiritual people shouldn’t do a lot of things. As I mentioned in the article I wrote before, many people think that one who is spiritual shouldn’t talk about anything that isn’t ‘highly vibrational or positive.’ Bullshit. Many people advocate avoiding anger or other feelings. Not happening here! I think Anger Is Your Friend We probably shouldn’t cuss, either. Fuck that noise, I say. Charge fees for our services? Greed! Blasphemy! Even though I’ve gotta feed and clothe my family. Doing my work takes time, energy, and effort. Most people are fine with trading money for other services/gifts, so why not for what I do? And OH MY GODS, if I have a political opinion! You see, I was told this yesterday: “someone like who is in the business of self-help, healing, etc., one would like to see you not screaming negativity every day and see your positive light you promote.” This was in regard to a post that I put asking if we could just please get Trump out of office now and one about Comey being fired. My posts were really pretty low-key. Nothing like talking about pussy grabbing or killing sleeping bears and wolves in their dens or anything like that. This comment got me  thinking about some other iconic historical, spiritual, and religious figures who actually had something to say about the state...
Anemia Got Me

Anemia Got Me

Hello there! Long time no talk. Or so it seems. I wanted to share my little story with you all because I know that many of you are also spiritual business people – or heck, even energetic human beings roaming this earth, experiencing your own ups and downs. And I was in a down. I wrote it off to SAD (Seasonal Affective Depression) and also to the fact that it was winter – and this is the first year I gave myself permission to pause during the winter months, just like the earth does during the winter season. Unfortunately, sleep became something of an addiction to me. I didn’t have even a quarter of my usual energy or motivation. I was sleeping until 11 am, getting up, doing all that I could to just scrape by doing the bare minimum, and then crawling back into bed as soon as I could.   And my self-care was just kind of not there. No music, no art, no long hot baths with candles and incense. I barely kept my toenails painted! And I certainly wasn’t taking nature walks or even hitting the gym regularly. I was kind of starting to get concerned, because I am normally a little bit of an energy fairy – flitting here and there – always happy and on the go…. But I just wasn’t feeling my usual self. So I made an appointment with my doctor for a blood test and all of the general check-ups that might give me an idea of what was draining my energy. Low and behold! My anemia had gotten WORSE, and that was...
