I want to share with you something about my life. It is fleeting. It is rich. It has held pain for love. It has let go. It has risen. My life, it’s like yours. Sharing in the sunset, the sun rise, the ever rise and fall of waves in our hearts. All over the world, we have this in each other and it connects us. We are One. Tonight a brand new moon rises. Tomorrow a brand new sun. Breathe in the new night, the new day, and know you are never alone. Ride the wave of life like never before. Connect with the patch of Earth under you. Even if it’s 42 floors below. Even if there’s a mile of ice between you and that sacred soil, put your mind on it, put your heart into it. I guarantee you will feel it, know it, connect with it, because it is alive, waiting for you. And it feels you. Take this into your sleeping and waking.
Someone I know is demonstrating disconnect with their higher calling, their Greater Potential, through some terrible, dividing behaviors in their circle of family and friends. It would be considered a normal response that many of the people around this person would feel vindicated by damning them for it. Could be that the person actually expects to be damned on some unconscious level and likely feeds off that energy to continue to hide from their potential. Or maybe their consciousness has been hijacked and they don’t even know it. That’s the worst idea; I hope it’s not true because then there is no hope for them. I have met that Greater Potential in this person. It’s not getting any air time. And in that denial, it’s damaging so much unnecessarily, blindly, stubbornly, seemingly with no end in sight. What a wild thing to watch such senselessness in a person with great potential. It’s like witnessing through the playground fence, behaviors that would be normal for an 8-year-old who is still learning, being carried out by someone in midlife. I won’t contribute my energy to feed the mindset that holds this person at bay from their Higher Expression, from their Humanity and their better days. When I think of it (like now) my mind’s eye rests on the part of the person that wants some light. Ok, it probably wants a lot of light!
There is so much more to life than incessantly running on a hamster wheel. Look at the picture in this post. That’s only one small patch of Earth that has so much greatness to it. So much beauty. People are like this. People everywhere. I think everyone has a time (long or short) in life when they get stuck and have lost sight of the thing that calls them out to live and honor their true heart. It’s worth digging out at all cost. Allow the shift. The allowing is missing.
I walked through Hell, partially aware. And I came out the other side loving my heart. I came out the other side knowing what is in my heart and knowing my strength. I found out I am stronger than I ever gave myself credit for. I can do anything I truly desire, because I let my heart open to true, full love for one in spite of the hell I saw coming at me, and then I let my heart break because of it.
My heart remains open and therefore I am free. I didn’t die, I came alive – more alive than I ever imagined I could. My life is my own to make of it what I will. Nothing else is more important because it all begins here. Right here. Authenticity. Presence, real presence.
This holiday season moves through virtually unnoticed by me. I’m too pre-occupied by the gift that, in retrospect, I was giving myself over the past three years: my own heart’s freedom to Be.
In my opinion, this is the core of all positive change, one person, one heart at a time, however life brings it on. And so I send out a perpetual prayer and blessing for every one to know their own heart intimately, truly. However you get there, it’s worth every damn step.
From where I stand, I see it is the true source of change on Earth for the best future we could hope for.
It is a new day. Do you feel it? Life is changing fast. Time is no longer linear. It’s spreading out like a fractal. Beautiful. Like wearing roller skates that have 15 balls underneath and on the edge of each foot. Curiously weird. Disorienting and we have to learn to roll with it. It’s the only choice.
This morning I tweeted: “The time has arrived where “ritual” isn’t required for healing, though it is of help for focus & conscious connection to gratitude. Bless.” This is my experience. I’m working as an energy healer in a well-established chiropractic/acupuncture clinic in the Fairhaven district of Bellingham now. (I finally, and gratefully, found the home that feels right for my multi-dimensional work in a healthcare setting. I’ve come home within and without.) In the sessions, it has been my visceral and energetic experience that the healing is much more direct than before. I have the option to perform the preliminary steps I am used to, but have discovered they are not required to get the work done. The healing wave moves directly and quickly on countless levels simultaneously, having an effect on tissues, bones, skin, blood, skills, perceptions, symptoms, alignments, dis-ease, etc.; spanning from the initial energy layer that houses the dis-orienting shift outward. The trickle down effect (or wave) begins to take shape, just as it did when the wave of symptomatic shifts flowed through (either slowly or quickly….) The new wave is moving through. Healing takes place outside of any agenda I may personally have as the practitioner. It is none of my business. I energetically step aside and allow myself to function as a multi-dimensional tuning fork in the session at a high, white light level. Now all this can take place without my preliminary doings. Wild! I am getting used to it.
This poem: A New Day Must Rise came through last month. It literally tumbled out of me. One phrase comes from the track “Chant” on Xavier Rudd’s Live in Bonnaroo cd: “Like mountains with holes where trees used to be.” It was playing when the poem started to pour out. Have you ever had words do that? Just tumble out? It’s a gentle feeling at times, other times it’s pounding on the door wanting to be aired/written/shared. I wonder how much of this goes “kind of” unnoticed as simply a fleeting thought. I wonder if more people tuned into these moments, how much more heart-based communication would rise up.
People need to hear you. Yes they do. They need to hear who you truly are, unarmored, unadorned, unplugged. Remember that the judgment you put on yourself and your own creative expression is far more harsh than anyone out there could direct at you. It gets twisted up if you let it. Don’t let it. Just don’t.
Instead: Let that creative day rise up in you and share where you will.
Blessings and being blessed.
(The image of the bird on my arm in this post is the Spirit Bird that symbolizes my work and guides me. She’s a Red Tail Black Cockatoo from Australia. She came through to say, among other things, that the expanding shift in the healing work is happening. Aho!)
The past 7 years have taught me to expect change, and to expect it often. It wasn’t my personal agenda, but my whole life has started over at least four times in those years. Finding solace through all that change has been vital. Where to find it? Nature. Go to it at every opportunity. The ocean is the place I choose, sometimes the woods where a beautiful waterfall runs. Since my last post, I moved closer to the ocean. I feel more at peace with access to it essentially right outside my front door. What a blessing. When I’m in nature, I carry the young memories of walking outdoors with my parents.
A recent post on Facebook by Wayne Dyer, which included a beautiful poem by Mary Oliver, really struck home for me:
“Follow your children.
Together you will
learn to pay attention:
how to kneel down
in the grass;
how to be idle
how to stroll
through the field;
how to lead a wild
and precious life.” ~ Mary Oliver (This is written as it was on Facebook)
This poem reminds me of the times my dad would carry me outside in his arms after dinner, to walk in our big yard and look for the moon through the trees. I was about 2 years old. He would walk where I pointed and we would find the moon together. And, the memories of day walks in nature with my mom. She and I would collect interesting rocks, and beautiful field flowers; the field grasses towering over my head. Occasionally we would stop to listen to the water flowing in the stream near our house. These were the best days of my childhood, like medicine to my young heart. I needed that peace and companionship as a very sensitive, aware-without-words (intuitive) little person.
Mom will be 90 next February. She is such an important woman in my life. She’s helped me get through some deeply tough times. The spirit of my father visits me often since 2003, guiding me, comforting me, encouraging me. 45+ years later, I walk in nature to soothe my soul through all the changes. I feel blessed and I feel grateful.
In surfing through all the changes, I realized that in this life, I’m called to witness people’s inner aliveness and connection to Self; and when needed, to support that connection in Spirit Bird healing sessions, intuitive readings, and through insight drawings. We can work together and be the change!
Rise Up and feel blessed! The path is gently lit.
Perseverance: Can you imagine someone standing in the path between you and someone you love (and who loves you), forbidding contact? It is excruciating to think about. Unfathomable. It takes a “special” mindset or blind spot in consciousness to take such a stand that is unwarranted. Maybe a highly developed skill in self-brainwashing to justify or rationalize saying no to love and nurturing for selfish reasons. Especially when it comes to children and pets who can’t understand why someone they love doesn’t come around anymore, or can’t speak up for themselves and demand their right to see their loved one. I wonder how prevalent this is around the world. What would make someone deliberately stand in the way? All it takes is the fear-based passive aggressive act of not communicating. Amazingly, as if it were a secret magic wand, what this behavior does is make the love and determination grow deeper and stronger. If you are experiencing this in your life or know someone who is, don’t think for one moment that those who love each other who are “cut off” from communicating or seeing each other, have forgotten. Their energy is pouring out telepathically (knowingly or not), flooding the other with energy of connection, love, memories, and clear intentions to connect in person someday. The light is strong there and the connection continues to develop. Persevere. Always remember.
Today is technically a “Pooh Day” in Bellingham, Washington. 100% blustery. And though this day, for me, was filled with truly fun adventures including dozens of children and djembe playing (not at the same time this particular day), there was a good percentage of me that was still energetically tucked in my blankets fast asleep…
A lot was achieved today. New percussive rhythms, new contacts for beautiful work, communing with my beloved Ocean. And, now I get to write here, tucked in, only a window between me and the storm outside. Bliss. Cold wind howls, flinging leaves and rain chaotically in the night, while the warm candle flame next to me calmly bends to the left, then nods to the right.
Yesterday, a client who sees me for full body energy sessions was candid with me about her experiences on my healing table. She said “You cover a lot of ground for the price you charge. It’s like three sessions in one. Not like anyone else.” A big statement! She recommended that I connect with one of her physicians to foster awareness of my practice, which I will do. I thank her for that. More and more people will understand the concept that the healing work I do connects with the body’s original energetic blueprint, providing a way for the systems of the body to come back into balance and health, fostering the healing process. Tattoos are another way to learn about and open to understanding current personal concerns. Some folks live far away so I work with them through intuitively drawing images similar to tattoos. I explain what the image is saying for them in a recording and then mail the image to them so they can place it where they will see it every day. Energy medicine in picture form. I don’t know anyone else who is doing this specifically for clients. This work is very intriguing as well as healing. Most often, people are deeply touched by being seen and supported. It is common for tears to flow for the deep recognition and validation that accompanies the needed shifts for healing.
This Saturday I’m excited to be facilitating an energy healing group for the community of Vashon Island, Washington. If you’re in the area, come join in the expanding circle of healing. I will open the conversation for channelling Q&A also. We meet at Vashon Intuitive Arts from 11-2pm. For information, give them a call at: 206-463-0025, or myself at: 360-393-7229. Ages 5 and up are welcome. Adults: $20 suggested donation.
Remember your Light. It is a way of understanding what and who you are. Your life is important.

Indigenous rights offer a path to a radically more just and sustainable country – which is why the Canadian government is bent on eliminating them
The unrest is palpable. In First Nations across Canada, word is spreading of a historic court ruling recognizing Indigenous land rights. And the murmurs are turning to action: an eviction notice issued to a railway company in British Columbia; a park occupied in Vancouver; lawsuits launched against the Enbridge tar sands pipeline; a government deal reconsidered by Ontario Algonquins; and sovereignty declared by the Atikamekw in Quebec.
These First Nations have been emboldened by this summer’s Supreme Court of Canada William decision, which recognized the aboriginal title of the Tsilhqot’in nation…
