Almost 20 years ago today, I was traveling to Sedona, Arizona, to attend a teacher training program for The Sedona Method program. Little did I know at the time that I was about to discover one of the most important keys to a happy, fulfilling life.
Soon, I found myself in a Sedona conference room filled with psychiatrists, psychologists, and doctors from around the world. I was a young mother and novice Tarot reader at the time. I didn’t feel I was at the professional level of the doctors and behavioral health specialists attending. I felt intimidated, uncomfortable, and actually wanted nothing more than to just go home.
During the first week of training, the director of the class asked me to come up to the front of the room and stand facing everyone. Oh no, I thought to myself, why in the world did I even come to this event! He asked that I demonstrate the technique he had just taught us, with a psychiatrist seated in the front row. My knees were shaking and my heart racing. But, there was no escape, so I decided to simply go for it. Although it was a daunting experience at the time, it was the best thing that ever could have happened to me. Read the rest of this entry »
When impatience takes over in your life, things become off-kilter. That’s when relationships break apart; jobs become unsettling, or they become impossible to find; money starts to dissipate. And all these things just cause more impatience, and more frustration.
When I tell you that someone will come into your life in Divine timing, it simply means that when you are able to be patient and let go of the edginess, the Universe will open the door an allow something or someone better to come into your life at the right time. This is all done on Divine timing – not yours, or mine. Read the rest of this entry »
When we think of abundance, our general thinking is that it refers to money and finances. It is true that with the energy of money we can create the life we love, and we can be in a place to support others or causes that we love. But abundance goes beyond mere wealth or financial prosperity. Consider the abundance of time, abundance of friends, abundant health and well-being, and the gracious abundance of love.
Sometimes we are just stuck and don’t know where to start in our desire to manifest abundance in the many areas of our lives. So let’s take a look at where to begin. Where in your life currently are you feeling the most conflict, or pain? You can begin there! From my experience and working with others, once you start examining your belief in this area and shifting it, all the other areas start to shift too. Read the rest of this entry »
I always tell my clients to start the day by choosing joy. When we are in the vibration of joy or love we begin higher on the vibrational scale, and when we hold one energy we cannot hold another. So, when we are in the vibration of joy, we can’t be in fear, dreading or doubt. The reverse is true. When we are in fear, we don’t feel love or joy.
I recommend a very sweet exercise that produces great results when we practice it, not only with words, but also by adding feeling and a sense of allowing. As with any exercise I use myself, or offer to my clients, I like to make it playful. So let’s play!
In the evening before you go to bed, when you have your PJs on, or first thing in the morning, make yourself comfortable and think of something that raises your vibrational state to one of joy. Put aside any doubts or resistance. Then in your journal, or on a pretty paper, and with your favorite pen, you can write down how you want your day to progress while holding this high vibe.

Many years ago a friend of mine told me simply to choose happiness. I was thoroughly frustrated with that statement, as there was so much opposition in my life. Like most people, I have had struggles that lasted not only months, but decades. I faced adversity not only once or twice, but repeatedly. I also had to manage all these challenges on my own, due to traveling on my own, starting my own businesses, and surviving immense loss, among other things.
At the time my well-meaning friend had simply not experienced any of these life challenges to the same degree, thus I did not believe her. To make the choice to feel joy seemed resolutely trite, in the face of such constant, episodic misfortune!
In truth, she was not too far off in that statement. Except, it was not a conscious choice, or something of cultish free will. It was more of an attitude that came over me after repeated misfortune, which led to a toughening up, a new approach, a singular mindset, a resolute focus. Read the rest of this entry »
A client recently called me about a new and promising relationship. She has a long history of dating men who show the promise of a potential long-term relationship, who then suddenly disappear or unexpectedly break up with her after few months.
It was immediately apparent to me that texting played a detrimental role in her dating woes. Misunderstandings due to texting have ruined the romantic, family and friendship relationships of many people I have worked with. This client was no different. Reading her energy I instantly perceived that she tends to push men away by panicking unnecessarily. Men can smell panic and it is a total turn off. It’s also stressful and will not change the outcome of a situation for the better. Excessive obsession, panic and worry will not bring someone closer to you. Instead it can push a potential long-term relationship away. Read the rest of this entry »
We plan our life – each life – before we come here. Trying to change the ticket for your journey mid-stream is like sitting on the bow of a giant cruise ship and rowing to change the course (that is, of course, one way to spend your free time, if you wish).
We plan our life when we are in our Soul perspective. We choose a course to experience events and situations that support us, allow us, or even force us to expand and grow. Once we get here, we can at times be horrified at the choices we had made!
It can be like deciding to downhill ski those expert-only, extremely difficult double black diamond slopes, and then once we are on the top, or in the middle, we are overwhelmed by the challenge. We have decisions to make then. Quit? Be a victim? Blame? Escape? Crawl through it? Walk through with dignity? Fly? Read the rest of this entry »
A client recently talked about her struggles with anger, and that no matter what she did she was unable to rid herself of her “anger issues.” She said that she was concerned, because she knew that her anger was inevitably attracting and manifesting further negativity into her life.
Spirit’s response to this is, “Anger is good.” Spirit has shown me that anger has value. Personally, I would never want to advise someone against the truth. And the truth is sometimes we are furious, fuming, enraged, explosively angry.
Anger is certainly a natural human reaction to events that we seem to counter our goals and desires. It is natural reaction, otherwise the experience of anger would not be a part of our experience of life.
That being said, how do we put anger back into our understanding of the manifestation principles? That’s a good question. Pain, which includes anger, is a beloved friend that is there to tell us something. Often times it indicates that we are out of alignment with Spirit. Read the rest of this entry »
