I have been the queen of stuffing it - being patient, being compassionate, being understanding - AND too much of the time, being angry or frustrated or sad or afraid - and not really being aware of it! Its how I was raised. Its how nice people act. Its an unconscious reaction - or it used to be. I remember talking to my mother and sister years ago about boundaries - and they asked in unison Whats a boundary?. Ha Ha!
The older I get, the more aware I am of how I am feeling in the moment, rather than unconsciously ignoring my feelings. And, although my automatic response is often still to stuff it, my conscious response is to speak up, or to make a ... READ MORE
The cycles and changes in life never cease to amaze me! We get to love, hold on, let go, feel pain, feel joy, feel peace - and breathe and trust! I am experiencing and seeing more changes and shifts right now than I have in a long time. I sense this is part of our Winter Solstice, and the energy around December 21, 2012.
What a month this has been! My dear friend Lisa died peacefully in her home, with her mother and sister by her side, on Tuesday, November 27. She was 58. I was honored to spend time with her the week before, and the Sunday and Monday before her passing. On Monday, the night before she died, there was so much light and love and ... READ MORE
I wrote this article before the November election, when there was alot of stress, anger, and fear in the group energy. Now we are into the winter holiday time - another time when people seem to feel stressed and at times angry. This time of year, I often feel others' loneliness, or their sadness about not being able to afford what they want to give others, their stress about wanting to please and take care of loved ones, etc.
A big question I often ask myself and my clients is "Is it yours??". Just because you are feeling off-center, does not mean it is "yours". The group energy is bigger than your personal energy, and you can be affected by the group energy. So, the ... READ MORE
I was at the Chiropractor a while back, and I mentioned that the main challenges I am dealing with are digestion-related. After he heard my list of what I have been noticing, he said You need to work on your vagus nerve. Do you meditate? Well, yes I do - but I am aware that I am still stressed...
So, of course, when I got home I googled vagus nerve. Fascinating! The vagus nerve is the largest nerve in the body, and it helps to counter-balance the effects of stress! It has been called the great wandering protector. It connects to the throat, heart, lungs, spleen, liver, stomach, kidneys, pancreas, and intestines. Science is ... READ MORE
I have been in the midst of a love wave for the past week, and I am in awe. You can read my blog about my friend Lisa who had been having health problems. On January 25, she called 911, and has been in the hospital since then. A few days after being admitted, she was told she has cancer in her bones, which caused many fractures and other serious health problems. The first week was a process of tests and more tests, and just trying to get her pain and breathing under control. I was at the hospital alot doing energy healing and offering support.
On February 3, I started a website for Lisa on caringbridge.org. Another friend posted on a chat group that Lisa had been very ... READ MORE
I continue to be amazed at the healing that happens during my classes and sessions. Maybe thats why I never get tired of the world of energy and healing. I see so many miracles.
Last weekend my most wonderful Intuitive Energy Medicine 8-month Program group met. Almost everyone dragged in on Saturday morning feeling overwhelmed, tired, stressed out, in some cases scared.. Some of the women expressed financial fears and stressors - basic survival issues. Some also shared boundary issues - taking care of others before taking care of self, and/or not expressing needs and feelings.
Of course, part of what was on my agenda was to teach about our kidneys and ... READ MORE
I am trying to stop looking at Google news because it makes me want to SCREAM. And, I am somewhat addicted to checking the news at least twice a day! I am so frustrated to hear about all that is happening in Washington and our economy, and how those who need the most help will be getting less. As you can guess, I could go on with my rant - but what good will it do? Does it help fix things in Washington? no.. Does it help those in need? no.. Does it help me feel better? no!
What it does do is create unhealthy stress in my body/mind/emotions, and less than loving energy in my body and energy field, which can negatively affect anyone ... READ MORE
