Many spiritual people talk a lot about Awakening, achieving Enlightenment, and Ascending. Of course, I love these discussions and participant in them when I can. However, I am experiencing a growing awareness that keeps tugging at my heart, and it is this: Once you have Awakened what will you do?
What is the reason for your need to Awaken? What do you believe it means to Awaken? Is it a desire to be more than those around you? Is your desire to Awaken more of a plan of your ego than a plan of your soul? Do you know that once you Awaken your ego will not be central to your existence? So any thoughts of world domination are pretty much dashed! ;)
What does Awakening mean to you?
I don’t know. SMH I get very frustrated when I hear the over use of some “spiritual” terminology. Because I wonder what would you do when you are Awake. What does Awakening look like to you? Describe it please.
What Awakening means to me is not only will I have a constant awareness of the realities I wish to live I will also be aware of the constant Love around me. I will swim in a pool of unadulterated LOVE and COMPASSION. Those around me will know their own power of LOVE and become more COMPASSIONATE of all life on earth and beyond.
Awakening brings with it a responsibility for all sentient beings around us. It means we must be responsible for the Awakening of our friends and family. It of course doesn’t mean that you have a right to stand on your spiritual soapbox and scream some dogmatic rhetoric. People need to Awaken in their on time, and that time is determined by their contract with Divine Source. No one has to follow your plan or your way of Awakening but your Awakening does mean that you are charged with helping those in need.
Every moment that lacks love depletes us.
My heart is aching as I write this because the selfish nature of humankind can be very overwhelming. The current thinking of mass consciousness is painful. Do you realize that everything you do affects another individual? Every moment that lacks LOVE is a vibration that depletes and holds us all in a sleeping state. Yet every moment of LOVE nurtures and heals; expands and enlightens those around us. LOVE AND COMPASSION is so necessary to our spiritual growth and our AWAKENING.
Entrain to a higher vibration with LOVE.
Oy! I could go on, and I will in future posts. That’s what blogs are for I guess. But I will leave you now with this: In the healing arts it is known that we entrain to the higher vibration. The person receiving the healing will entrain to the higher vibration that the healer is holding for them. Holding the vibration of LOVE and COMPASSION is the highest vibration I know.
Fill your days as much as you can with loving thoughts. When a negative thought comes to mind cancel it out by thinking at least three positive thoughts about that particular situation. This will bring you back to the higher vibration. Meditate because the feeling of Bliss meditation brings is your connection to Divine Source and a memory of who you are, and you are LOVE personified. So even when you are not meditating you will know and be able to recall the feeling of Bliss.
So I ask you, what will you do when you fully Awaken? I would love to know.
Our spirit guides speak to us in the silence. They whisper or "speak" to us in images so gentle. They know we need guidance and protection and most of all their love and devotion.
We want answers fast and definite. We are very busy forcing the answers because we are very distracted by the world around us.
In my experience, our guides deliver in the time that is best for us. They know and they get their marching orders from a very reliable and exalted source.
Oh you can not hear them? You will once you devote some time to listening. The meditation video below will help you with the silencing of your mind necessary to hear the divine voices of your guides.
What have you learned today? I think we learn something new everyday, but we don’t really give it much thought. We learn subtle life lessons that are designed to expand and help us evolve. When you think about your day do you think about what you’ve learned or what experience has affected you for the better?
Don't Focus on the Negative
I’ll bet you concentrate more on what is negatively impacting you. Who pissed you off? Who dealt with you unfairly? Who made you uncomfortable in someway? What you should have, would have, could have done. These are the things our brains like to obsess over. We see suffering first because we are programed in fight or flight response. That is how our brains have operated since the beginning of human existence.
Accentuate the PosItive
A healthier use of your brain power might be to contemplate the benefits of every encounter and what good you can see from it. In every situation there is a Yin and Yang, a negative and positive, a dark and light. Even the things that seem darkest have a component of light. This is God’s gift of LOVE to you.
Developing the ability to recognize the light, beauty, gift, and goodness of a seemly dark experience will re-train your neural pathways. You will be healthier and happier.
You’ll then be able to quickly list all your great learning experiences when you ask yourself "what did I learn today?", and how will lesson make me a better person for myself, my family, and for the Universe.
Are You Too Cool for Reiki?
Are you too cool for energy medicine? I ask because I know many people think the field of energy healing with its "metaphysical-ness" is so off the beaten conventional, allopathic, traditional medical path. Surely, enlisting the services of a Reiki Master or Intuitive Healer would have all your friends passing you the contact information of their well-heeled therapists.
The fact is more and more people are beginning to see the benefits of working with healers like me who work with you from intuitive prospective. We allow you to give voice to what you know intuitively about your environment and your health.
Do you realize that by being too cool or too careful or conservative may just be an example of fear of looking silly to your friends? Okay, I get it. You just really need to see the rest of the world give Reiki or energy healing the thumbs up before you you’ll try it. But while you are waiting for social acceptance you may be delaying healing, wellness, and happiness.
Did you realize that vitamins and herbs are in the same realm as energy medicine. Sure there is a lot of measureable physical evidence proving the efficacy of most vitamins and herbs however, we are still not sure about herbs or homeopathy. But they very often work very well. How about acunpuncture?
I met a woman whose mother went to China to study acupuncture in the 70's. The woman who is an adult remembered that 40 years ago her mother was considered very odd and misguided…to put it mildly… by well meaning friends and family. Conventional thinking held that her mother, who was not Chinese, should work towards a traditional medical career if she wanted to be a doctor. Well, here we are 40 years later and acupuncture is a popular healing practice covered by medical insurance and hailed as a wonderful preventative healing practice.
So, what about Reiki and The Reconnection and all the other methods in the same family? Well, they are all preventative. Science is proving the existence of the Unified Field and this field is proof that we are all connected energetically and this connection and our intention to heal ourselves and others is one of the reasons Reiki and all forms of energy medicine work.
Science is Beginning Understand Energy Healing
Read renowned science researcher Lynne McTaggart’s books The Field, The Intention Experiment and What Doctors Don’t Tell You.
According to McTaggart: “What they [respected scientists] have discovered is nothing less than astonishing. At our most elemental, we are not a chemical reaction, but an energetic charge. Human beings and all living things are a coalescence of energy in a field of energy connected to every other thing in the world. This pulsating energy field is the central engine of our being and our consciousness, the alpha and omega of our existence.”
To use energy to heal energy and a reach a state of homeostasis just makes sense to me. To use a system of holistic health that does no harm and is non-invasive seems like a smart idea to me.
Am I suggesting that you fore go traditional medical care all together? Absolutely not! But why not consider it as a complementary approach, or better yet a preventive approach to maintaining health. Reiki, Energy healing, and Intuitive healing will support your immune system and awaken your own natural healing abilities.
It is worth a try. Contact me. I offer a 15-minute free consultation. I’ll answer your questions about energy healing or Reiki, or The Reconnection, or any of the other energy healing modalities for you. Or are you just too cool? :)
Love and Peace,

The Answers are Within
I am an intuitive healer. I help people move through life with grace and love. The energies and frequencies that are channeled through me can relieve emotional, psychical, physical, and psychological pain.
Intuitive ability is what allows me to “read” the messages I receive from the client’s energy field. Sometimes the client’s energy will speak to me in stories. Sometimes the client will not allow me to “read” the stories. This is an example of how our free will works. For me, it is fine either way because Source will always work to help both the client and myself for our greatest good. The client has to be happy and comfortable. The session is benefical and works no matter what scenario presents itself.
Learning Truth About Healing
I’ve learned a lot for my clients and I also learned a lot from them as well. I've learned that the answers are always within.
The other great truth is an unmeasurable gift for any Energy worker, and that is the awareness that I am merely a channel for Divine Source… God to some of us. God does the work. And with that said, I am also aware of the fact that true healing is completely up to you, the client. This is more Free will in action.
Healing Cannot Be Forced Upon you.
Healing cannot be forced upon you. If it is forced in any way the healing will not be permanent. My job is to hold up the spiritual mirror allowing you to gaze upon your Self internally and externally. It is your job to see your internal and external beauty. Again, my job is to get you to see Love within your soul.
Holding up this mirror for you is an honor! And I take this honor very seriously. I do not allow any one to trivialize anything in the realm of holistic or spiritual healing. The results are too profound and positive.
And when a client has a tremendous revelation, one that moves them closer to having what they need and want, I am filled with absolute joy and amazement at God’s loving grace.
May I hold up the mirror for you? That lovely view of your infinite self is waiting to bring you peaceful insight, love, and happiness.

The Gratitude Journal
Keeping a Gratitude Journal is one of the many exercises I recommend to my clients. I make this recommendation in order to help them develop perspective and balance. Have you ever tried it? Sounds like a cake walk right? Well, it’s kind of easy in the beginning, and that’s if you can list some of the very basic things in life for which one should be grateful. You know like waking up in the morning, the air you breathe, the food you eat, etc.
So Why do Some Folks find it Challenging?
We human beings are so often mired in negative thoughts. Thoughts of the challenges in our lives. We obsess over our bills, difficult relationships, our jobs, and our health. There is a lot of not-so-positive stuff going on to keep from thinking of the great things in life. And duh? Isn't it better to try to figure out ways to fix the problems and meet the challenges? After all this is Earth School. We're here to remember who we are and where we came from in order to evolve to the next level. This is valid, but we spend too much time on the negative. We need to spend time thinking about things that will produce smiles and make our hearts soar.
Most of us seek the gifts enlightenment promises to bring us. These gifts are a joyous, happy, healthy, connection to all that is around us. A Divine Love. A connection to the Universe and a discovery that We are indeed the Universe. Keeping a Gratitude Journal is just one helpful step to embracing your true Self.
The Gratitude Journal will exercise the frontal cortex of your brain. This exercise will create neural pathways whose default emotion is Love and Joy. When we start thinking in a more positive way we are better able to access solutions to challenges. Life gets a little easier. We can actually become happier! Of course, keeping a Gratitude Journal will not alone completely change your life. At least I don’t think it will. However, journaling about the great things you experience can offer an escape from your daily troubles, and make you aware of the beautiful things that you do have in your life.
Here are Seven Tips for Gratitude Journal Writing:
1. Find the loviest book you can.
2. Get a special pen for writing.
3. Designate a sacred place for your writing where you will not be disturbed
4. Begin with 10 minutes and see if you can write for 20 minutes or more!
5. Try not to repeat entries. Force yourself to look at your world internally and externally for new entries.
6. Visualize things that make you happy i.e.: a baby’s smile, a joke, a pair of shoes. That should get the ball rolling if you are feeling stuck.
7. Write when you’re happy and especially if you feel sad. Writing is cathartic, and when you are writing about happiness you’ll see you will smile.
Gratitude Journaling is merely one way to attract more of the same to you. It opens your heart to attract more goodness your way. Give it a try. The least it could do is help!
