Sunny Solstice and Beyond!

Standard

Sunrise to the East

I just noticed I haven’t written a post since the 15th, and haven’t even posted someone else’s post since the 23rd. Settling into my present living situation, gearing up for the solstice and full moon and all that is happening within me has consumed my time and energy.

It is so amazing to look back at this almost 34 weeks of being on the road, staying in hotels, B and B’s and other people’s homes; adjusting to the different beds, kitchens, rules, personalities, expectations, etc. has been quite the experience, challenge and learning opportunity. I was adaptable before this journey and even more so now. I have always carved out a sense of home whether it was in a dorm room, traveling in my car, or living/staying somewhere else, but this experience has pushed that limit, too.

I loved the energies of the Solstice. They were intense but felt so sweet. I fell asleep around the actual solstice on the 20th and even during my dreams, I was commenting on how sweet it felt. The next day was the same. I led a ceremony on the phone with my weekly “intention” partner, as we each shared out gratitudes and intentions for our lives and the world. The weekend was busy but again drenched in powerful energies flowing in and lighting me up.

And, as has been the direction of this long journey, I was led to a local chiropractor yesterday who has led me to some other contacts who have been working to create a wellness center, just like me. My journey, inspiration and guidance for that came 34 years ago and I have worked on it and researched it ever since. These synchronistic meetings are coming faster and faster these days as I can look back and see point A connected to point B, leading to point C, etc. all throughout my trip. Even when I question whether I am listening well enough to guidance, my answer always comes with another meeting and opening.

May you be blessed by this light, as you bless the world with your presence and love! May you feel God’s hands along your path and hear the whisper guiding you on.

Much love to you all!

Focusing Energy Brings Results!

A few weeks ago I offered to do some energy healing for a friend. He had been experiencing sharp pains and was so concerned about he had sought out medical tests to rule out any serious health challenges. I used a technique I learned in 1987, from a healer and man who channeled, too. He combined Huna techniques he had learned in Hawaii, reflexology, acupressure and Reiki to create this technique. He called it NET, Natural energy therapy. I am a Reiki master but I love and prefer using the form of healing he taught over using my reiki modality. I still call in Reiki energy but also much more, working with the client, any beings of light assisting him/her as well as working with Spirit and any beings of light working with me.

I understand that it is Spirit doing the work and my role is as a midwife. It is also up to the person receiving the healing to allow it to happen, to align with releasing blocks and old wounds to make room for healing to take place. I often will send musical notes, breath, and other creatures and natural elements in to assist the work. I use handholds around the body pulling out disharmonious energy and then allowing healing harmonious energy to flow in and take its place. At times I do shamanic work and psychic healing, working with the person to release an old wound or energy whether it is from this lifetime or another. Again, I am only the midwife. Healing happens between the person and Spirit.

When I am done moving around the body, I then do the same process with specific chakras (energy centers), then balance the chakras, raise the energy in the chakras and then end by placing colors into the aura that the soul requests.

This session with my friend was quite profound. I knew and could feel that he was ready to release this pain and I could feel him aligned with the healing 100%. What a joy! At the end, his pain was gone completely. I found out today, that weeks later, it remains gone.

I am in awe of this work, very honored to be a channel for it, and so grateful that my friend allowed it to take place. I’m so grateful to have been led to that teacher in 1986 and to be able to study with him while he was alive. I feel blessed every day for this path I’ve been led to walk since early childhood. Health and wholeness is our true state, as we are meant to vibrate in harmony, in love and in joy.

Following Your Dream!

  After recently watching the movie “Garbage Warrior” and also “2012: Time for change”, it led me to reflect upon how my life has been leading me  to this moment in time and my purpose on this planet.

    As a child, I grew up in the desert and would play house by drawing house plans on the desert floor and playing house in those “houses”.  After workers would go home for the day, I would explore the newly framed out houses in our neighborhood. I loved the smell of the wood, the openness of the frames and the wonder of watching a house be built from the ground up.

     Since I grew up both very ill and also remembering other lives and seeing other dimensions, the quest for health and a deeper spiritual understanding became the constant path I was led to walk.  Along with this, my sensitivity to unjustness that I saw all around me; the misery in my family, in school and in society, informed my later work as an activist.

     In 1978 I ended up taking a job as the communications director for Prescott College, the first college to offer a degree in environmental studies.  The staff at the time was an amazing group of transformational teachers, forward thinkers, pioneers.  During this time I was able to attend a workshop at the college taught by people from Findhorn, the still thriving spiritual community in Scotland.  This workshop brought together my metaphysical childhood, my love for building and community, my passion for wellness and social activism.

     At the time, my son was attending a local alternative school. I was in discussion with them to receive a government funded “Ceta” position in the fall of 1978, to teach art/music/dance to the children 1/2 time and do the school’s accounting and PR the other 1/2 day.  So I decided to take a leap, take money I had inherited from family deaths along with money I had received from an injury and buy land for myself. I quit my job, bought 5 acres 12 miles out of town, situated on a 20 acre land parcel purchased by 2 families.  My idealistic nature imagined this to be the Utopian beginning of a glorious community.  I thought I had it all figured out.  I had enough, I thought, to build my house. Since the land was paid for, I figured I would build the house over the summer, then have a job to go to in the fall and make enough to support my son and I, and still have some money left over.

     So the project began!  My son and I moved into a tepee and then my Father’s camper blocked up on the high desert floor.  I had a hose strung out over a tree branch, socking up sun during the morning and that became my shower.  I had an outhouse that looked out to a view of the San Francisco peaks in Flagstaff, AZ.  We started work at 6 am and worked until noon. Life was grand!!!

     The man I bought the land from designed a house that was partially underground and was to be powered by solar energy.  The crew was another neighbor, one other man from town and myself.  I started that summer with such hope and vision.  I grew muscles I never knew I had and began my life long dream of community, sustainability and alternative energy technology!

     Things didn’t go as planned as the land owner and neighbor began to talk badly about me behind my back, I found out that I really didn’t have enough money to finish the house and that the house had been built with poor decisions (like filling in the huge bricks with adobe ?!).    I was new to building so was just following the direction of the supposed experts.  I felt confused, betrayed and had no idea where to go from that experience.  My dream of community there disappeared as I got the roof on and put the house on the market, left the land and moved my son and I in with a friend.  All the extra materials I had purchased were stolen by the land owner and the neighbor, who later tried to deny it all.The descent was sealed when my promised job was given to someone else.

     But Spirit had a plan and led me to a reflexologist, for my ongoing back pain from the old injury and that began my career in holistic health.  From there I was led to explore other communities in AZ and NM, and I began my 32 year career in wellness along with my research to create International wellness/wholeness centers and commmunities.  My vision has stayed strong in spite of the many setbacks and often going it alone, but I feel the world coming to a stronger place that now better supports the visions that began for me in childhood.

    Sometimes it is challenging and painful to have a dream and to wait for it to materialize and yet the journey alone builds the strength, understanding and compassion that you need in order to fulfill that dream.  When you look back, you can see all the steps that led you from there to here, all the gifts along the way that expanded your offerings to give to your dream and the world.

     What path have you been walking? What dream have you been holding in your heart? My love and blessings go out to you to feed those dreams, bring light to that path, create the opening for you and your dream to be fulfilled.
