So, the year 2017 is finally well on its way, and already those new year’s resolutions are beginning to falter for some. I, like so many people, also have made my new year’s resolutions. I want to be more positive, more focused and more available to the ones that need me. I also want to lose weight, eat more healthily and get more exercise. These are my promises to myself, but will I live up to them? That’s a good question.
Why do we make these resolution and then not follow through? I have found that I do much better if I focus on just one. Creating unrealistic expectations for yourself will only set you up to fail. Plan ahead, and have the tools and attitude to succeed. A positive attitude is crucial to success with your resolutions. You have to believe you can do this! Read the rest of this entry »
Sadly, we tend to overlook the very real, physical signs our bodies give us, to let us know that the stress is all too much. If you’re experiencing one or more of these symptoms, it might be time to take a look at how to reduce stress levels and get your total health on track.
Pain in our bodies is probably the most obvious sign something is wrong, yet it tends to get ignored until it’s almost too late. Aches and pains, stomach issues, muscle tension, and heart palpitations are among the most common. Also, when we’re under stress, our sleep may suffer. Sleep is crucial to a person’s well-being, and if we’re not getting enough sleep (or too much) the entire body suffers as a result. Read the rest of this entry »
My life is running in reverse right now – or so it seems. My energy is low and it is affecting my health. I took the time to sit today and ask my guides, “What am I missing here? I have been doing what you asked, helping others, being there for those that need me and working towards my goals and my highest good. Why are these things hitting me right now to knock me down again?”
The answer I received was eye opening and so simple. “Sheri, it is time to clear the clutter, so you can move forward again.”
Clutter is one of those things that can hold us back, that can take us in reverse, or just put a wall up in front of us, so we don’t achieve our true higher potential. Read the rest of this entry »
The most overlooked aspect of our Christmas spirit is the giving, especially fruit. And for each fruit there is a symbol as an emblem of divinity or purity, as an anchor to our Earth, honoring our agricultural and farming heritage. In parts of Europe, for example, St. Nicholas would put tangerines into the homes of children to announce the arrival of first Advent.
The apple was used as a symbol of longevity and happiness, and youth and fertility, and thus was used in the story of Adam and Eve as the symbol of temptation. Yet, we must remember that in this infamous story, the snake that tempted Adam and Eve, was the bringer of knowledge and this is the age old lore that presents itself again and again throughout history. Not many people know that it was the Tree of Knowledge, not the apple (or sexuality) that tempted them. And in some ancient texts, they were freed by this knowledge. Read the rest of this entry »
I have been receiving many calls from clients who are struggling with finances and employment. They get something then lose it, or they have others sabotaging their jobs or reputation. If this is a re-occurring problem in your life, it is a good idea to look at your money karma.
Not all people who go through this have ‘bad’ money karma, but some do. We are on this planet with others and our world and karma gets entangled with others. Many people have issues with money, and their abuse and view of money easily bleeds over into our lives. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s important this season to remember not everyone is kind, and not everyone cares and is compassionate. I can relate to my clients when they say it is really difficult to be around certain people during the holidays, because of the ego, pride issues that many have. It does little for one’s peace of mind.
I give the same advice I try and bide by myself, which is remembering these people we only have to see once or twice a year. So, try your best to be civil. It’s hard even for those of us that remote view and see how our ‘loved ones’ speak so ‘lovingly’ of us behind our back, and how they focus on the things of this world instead of what matters the most.

At that time of my life I could put this down to my musician father’s wanderlust. He was a Sagittarius, and we not only often moved towns and countries, but frequently continents too. Such an unsettling way of life is usually not ideal for a Cancer like myself, but I seem to have inherited my father’s restless genes.
Today, my husband and I are in a tranquil setting since our international relocation over two years ago from a more volatile environment. Still, the restlessness persists. My menagerie of pets – five dogs and three cats – at least keep me relatively at peace.
I do know that actions provoked by restlessness can involve inevitable stresses, as was the case with our most recent big move. Unlike the days when I was still doing things solo, or when I was still living with my parents, this time I had the many pets to consider. Their well-being moving from one continent to another was one of the biggest stresses I have ever experienced. Read the rest of this entry »
Many of you tend to ‘collect stuff’ which actually tends to hold you down, and smother you and your spirit. As you do some deep cleaning of your physical space, you will find that you begin to breathe easier and the weight on your chest dissolves. Find one thing that you can pass along, as sharing your good fortune with others also raises your vibration and brings you into alignment with joy and goodwill. One person’s junk is another person’s treasure. Read the rest of this entry »
