I’m a truth seeker. Truth about our world is uprooting from its deep earthly tentacles and truth is exposing itself. Finding out the truth, even if it’s negative, brings me a sense of relief because it helps me align with what my soul knows and what’s playing out in real time. My soul does not rest until I feel that sense of peace in the knowing. There was always a kernel of fear in my naïveté, in the past. I would become outraged when a truth would come out that went against the grain of my soul. Now, I rarely become outraged when I find out the truth. I think it's important to endeavor not to ignore truth, especially when it's staring us in the face, because it is in ignoring that gut feeling that we find ourselves in fear.
There are people who can just go on about their daily lives, believing the lies we are told, and think nothing of it. I'm not one of those people. Someone I truly respect once told me I have a, sort-of, x-ray vision into the energy of people, situational dynamics, the connections of all things. It's the only way she could explain it to me and I now understand what she was talking about. It can be a blessing and a curse at the same time, but I digress...
Lies and omissions stir my soul and cause discomfort. When I come across a harsh truth I now recognize the discomfort and choose to see it as "It is what it is" now. The way I see it, it's from the "is what it is" of acceptance, that I find my power. In that power, I have choices I can make in my own life that help me stay in my personal integrity and authenticity. Outrage is fear. When I know the truth, regardless if it's negative or positive in my mind, the fear subsides. It is what it is. And I can lay it to rest, for it was there to show me my judgements.

Today I had the pleasure of doing a QHHT session with a gentleman who flew in from out-of-state to see me. I just wanted to share that this man was able to come to a profound understanding as to why he was so afraid of his own success. He stated he was unable to pinpoint where the origin, in this life, he could have such a self-confidence issue. After losing one job after another through no fault of his own, as well as several failed attempts at his own businesses, he was able to drill down to the past life cause of where this fear began.
Long story short, after experiencing a past life where he and his family were evacuated and burned out of his thriving farming business by a new ruler in his region, that later took over his land, he and his once happy and thriving family were forced out, financially devastated and had to resort to roaming the countryside, nearly starving as he took small jobs here and there. When asked what he was thinking and feeling in the moments before he died, all he could do was cry. He then said, "I'm a failure, I've disappointed my family, I can never recover."
During his session, he was able to make the connection between the limited thoughts he adopted upon his death from that lifetime and his fear of success in this lifetime. He realized he was afraid to succeed because he was afraid it would all be taken away from him again, if he even tried.
After his session, when he was leaving, he said he had not felt this light in years. He said he felt as if he had a new lease on life and he could already sense his confidence coming back. He was eager to get back home and tell his wife what he experienced as he was sure he was no longer going to take that energy into his new job opportunities nor his new business he is currently creating.
I live for these moments and hope to have the opportunity to share more in the future. Waking up, one person at a time...

Though I work with the light, I'm not one of those dippy rainbow, unicorn, miss merry sunshine, trying to climb the heap, people. I'm real. I'm truthful. I've found inner happiness but sometimes lose sight of it when I'm triggered. When this happens, I see it as a message there's something in me that needs transcendence. I know there's evil in the world, of many variations, and I acknowledge it and respect it for what it is. I understand why it's there. Sometimes I'm outraged by it, sometimes I just pray for it. I am empowered and my work is empowering. I do not foster dependency and my worth does not hinge on who likes me or not. I am a gentle, compassionate soul on the inside. I love all, yet I've lived a life that has taught me strong boundaries and self-respect in order to protect my own energy, all the while teaching others to do the same.
There are a handful of people I call friends because they love me and they understand me. They are also kindred spirits who are aware of their own energy and they take responsibility for themselves and what they bring to the table. I say all this to say that, if you ask me, I will tell you the truth as I see it. So, unless you're prepared, please don't ask. My age and life experiences have shown, too, that playing political games for self-promotion, of any kind, never ensures long-standing success. The only thing that proves long-standing success is self-wisdom, humility, seeking and standing in truth, integrity, and a will to go within and heal self-limiting thoughts, actions, words and deeds. Never covertly exploiting or using another for gain of any kind.
Love y'all. May peace be with you.

This past weekend was a humdinger. As you know the full moon was in psychic pisces. I'd venture to guess you may have had at least a tinge of emotion coming up recently. So, I'd like to tell you what happened this past weekend.
As I was going about my day, all of a sudden I was hit with an anxiety that I’ve not felt in years. I ran some errands and, while walking away from the store, I felt it coming on. A huge wave of tears and profound sadness. So, when I got to my car, I let her rip. You know what I mean? That ugly cry where your face gets all red, swells up, mascara running? Yeah, that.
All I could think of was, “what in the world is wrong with me?” My monkey mind began running amok as I tried to think it through. A list of questions began running though my mind: “Am I picking up on someone else?” Perhaps. “Is there anything going on, or not going on, in my life that I’m sad about?” Nope.
After shedding the last tear and regaining composure, it hit me. I’ve been working very long and hard. I have been diving very deep into my work, diving deep into its complexities and behind-the-scenes tasks. Diving deep within myself and asking the hard questions like how/what I can improve so as to show up, authentically, compassionately for my beloved friends and clients.
Then I realized I have not been doing my usual self-love rituals that nurture my own spirit.
Yes, it’s been a busy time since becoming a Level 3 QHHT® Practitioner. However, what I’m reminded of for myself, in this recent emotional experience, was that sometimes emotions well up and need to be let go. Duh, I’m telling you this ALL. THE. TIME. :)
I lost sight of practicing what I tell you!
After the ugly cry, I felt so much better and clearer in a way. I feel a breakthrough happened and through allowing myself to just feel the emotions before trying to figure out, logically, what that was all about, I have now made room in my being to keep going, to keep doing what I love. It also cleared out some muck that was holding back clarity on the next steps to take in my own life…in moving forward.
So, back into practicing my authentic self I go!
I guess I am telling you this to say, it’s OK to NOT be OK sometimes. Occasionally shedding the unnecessary is imperative to our emotional well-being and, lest we forget, to love ourselves first and to love ourselves THROUGH those times we might not feel like all is unicorns and rainbows.
In love and truth,
P.S. If you would like information on my “Practicing Presence” Coaching Series, feel free to contact me. It’s a 24 week, one hour per week commitment to taming the monkey mind and setting yourself into a neutral frame of mind. The results will last a lifetime if you choose to continue to practice this wonderful technique for yourself. I like to explain it as building a rock solid foundation to trusting in your own intuition.

It is not surprising to hear some of the outrageous things clients have reported about what some Intuitive Readers, and Psychics have relayed to them. Before drilling down into that, the basic question that must be asked is, ‘Why do we employ Readers in the first place?’ The most common reason shouldn’t surprise you. The reason most employ these (mostly) well-meaning people is most of us want to know, based on what we are going through at the time, is if everything will turn out OK.
People are in control of their own lives, their future and, therefore, are responsible for the decisions they make. However, there are Readers who can read the energy emanating from your mind, they can pick up on your fears and they can read that as truth and offer advice based on that information. This is not a psychic reading, this is mind reading (and sometimes mind control) and they are two very different things. Many are mind readers who THINK they are psychic. This is where it gets sticky.
Our minds are way more powerful than we think. If someone tells us something bad is going to happen, that is a reflection of our own fears, and we choose to receive that as truth then, guess what?… it’s probably going to happen. My advice is when you find yourself in this predicament is STOP the reading immediately and RUN. There’s no need to allow the reading to go on and to be polite. Then, get into a quiet place, breathe, and repeat this affirmation: “I nullify that thought so that it does not enter in to my subjective mind.” Furthermore, as often as you wish, envision a blank canvas and envision, in detail, how you want this situation to turn out. I can guarantee you, this will not only help alleviate your fear, it will begin a trajectory of creation in your own life and, more often than not, you will affect the outcome to be what you want. Focus on what YOU WANT.
Some, but very few, people who come to see me become frustrated when I tell them I won’t tell them what to do when they find themselves at a crossroads in their lives. It’s because they are in a mindset of victimhood. Yes, I know that’s a very strong word, but it’s true. In this case, what I mean by the word “victim” is that the client believes life is happening TO them rather than FOR them. In the case of a client at a crossroads, what I will do is, 1) ask the client what choices they see, 2) then take each choice and read the energy of that, and 3) tell them the consequences I see, in that moment, based on each choice. Then, the client is free to choose which choice they will make, based on their own free-will.
My first mentor once told me, when she did a reading for me, was that everything she was going to tell me about my future was not set in stone and that I have the power to make it happen or not happen based on my choices. She said that the reading was based on the current energy, at the time, and that what happens in my future was up to me.
A hypothetical example would be when a psychic tells you you are going to meet the love of your life next year. This may be true but if you are indulging in depression, sitting on your couch watching trash on TV, snacking all day and night thinking you are going to meet the love of your life so, “why bother going out and living life since I will meet the love of my life soon,” then guess what, you won’t meet the love of your life because you didn’t go out with your friends during the times they invited you out and, therefore, you missed meeting the love of your life.
Remember, life is happening FOR you and not TO you. Let that sink in.
One must take responsibility for their own thoughts, words, and actions, so when a psychic tells you you will meet the love of your life next year, take a look around you and take inventory of your beliefs and your behaviors. Are you living in such a way that the love of your life will find you? Is there room in your life for another? Are you still nursing the disappointments from your previous heartbreak?
One personal example of the power of the mind: I was in a dangerous auto accident with my daughter when she was only 2 months old. Luckily, she was not injured but I sustained injuries that propelled me into a year-long intensive therapy program. In addition to physical injuries, I had Post Traumatic Stress (deep fear) from the accident and I asked the Psychic if I was going to be OK and if I will ever have more injuries in the future. This psychic had been extremely accurate when making future predictions about my life. In this case, she told me that, when I reached a certain age, I was going to be in another dangerous auto accident that will put me in intensive therapy again. What happened? I immediately remembered what my mentor had told me. I went to my quiet place, took control of my breath, went inside myself with my hand on my heart, I affirmed, “I nullify that thought so it does not enter in to my subjective mind.” Every time I thought about it, I did this ritual. I then envisioned a blank canvas and saw myself easily traveling down the road in a car. And, I’m five years past the age in which she predicted the auto accident.
Another issue that confounds me when a client tells me another told them when a death was going to occur: NO Reader should ever tell you when or how you are going to die or when someone you know or love is going to die. Why? Because this information can be planted in the mind and it can happen. Let me tell you, the mind is THAT POWERFUL. God help that Psychic. They just entered into a very powerful karmic contract with you and it may not turn out very well for them.
Even though clients go to see Psychic Readers to find out if everything is going to be OK, let me save you the trouble. EVERYTHING TURNS OUT OK. If it’s not OK, then the lesson in faith, for you, is not completed. Every reading should have a glimmer of hope, of love, and a positive message that empowers you to choose the life you want to LEAD.
