Healing Hugs

Posted December 4, 2018

Occasionally, I sign an email to a client with the salutation “Hugs” or “Healing Hugs”. With one particular workshop participant, she responded with “I liked that you ended your response email with a hug… So freely. I have recalled that at least twice and it has warmed my heart. I wanted to send one back. HUG! In whatever way you need one when you read this.”  I’ve also had other clients tell me that I give a heartfelt hug. And they

Healing Through Laughter

Posted November 1, 2018

I vividly remember when I was 25 being asked to record my laughter. I was living in a small town, Pinawa Manitoba. I went to a local community theater production on opening night. Since my laughter encouraged others in the audience to laugh, the theater troupe asked me to return to the other performances to engage the audience at the hilarious moments of the play. Since then, others have also encouraged me to laugh and spread joy. 
There are

Plant Spirit Medicine: A Journey into the Healing Wisdom of Plants (Book Review)

Plant Spirit Medicine: A Journey into the Healing Wisdom of Plants

Author: Eliot Cowan

I have always loved plants. It is refreshing to come across an author who loves plants and spending time with them as much as I do. I also appreciated how Eliot and his version of Plant Spirit Medicine incorporate the five elements, fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. This aspect was new and exciting, as I have now incorporated some of his ideas into my work and daily life. Another

Self-Nurturing

Posted October 4, 2018

I frequently remind clients of the adage that airline stewards use “Adults, in case of an emergency, put on your oxygen mask first. Then assist the children or elderly sitting next to you.”
During the amazing four days of training with Alma, we were constantly reminded “Me first. Me last. For everyone else.”
This is one lesson that I am relearning now. Alma pointed out that I freely give my energy to others and yet this habit from childhood can

Louis Finds a Home

Posted October 4, 2018

For all of you who followed Louis’ story, it is with great excitement that Steve and I announce that our foster cat, Louis, has found his “purrfect” home.
Back during the August intuition share, I was guided to ask the group if anyone knew of someone willing and ready to adopt Louis. One of our younger intuitive participants shared that her mom might be interested. Her mom had recently lost a cat and was fond of black ones.

Our Bodies as Ecosystems

Posted September 6, 2018

Every day, I am amazed by the revelations that come forward during healing sessions. Recently, clients and I have been piecing together how interconnected our bodies really are; how the human body is an ecosystem of its own. By looking at our physical bodies and energetic fields as an interconnected system, we move ourselves forward on our healing path. This knowledge that everything in our bodies depends upon and requires everything else to function optimally is really eye opening.

It is

Our Heartbeats

Posted July 31, 2018

Years ago, Steve and I would lay on the hillside at Ignatius, on our back deck, or at another location, and just gaze at the clouds. I would gently breathe and feel the earth moving beneath me as the clouds moved overhead. That’s how I first started noticing the earth’s heartbeat. Since then, I’ve paid attention to the earth’s movement and how it connects to me and my clients. This can be as simple as using our hand to tap

Magic and Miracles

Posted July 3, 2018

I am continually surprised by the beauty in the world around us. By pausing and observing. I am constantly awed by spectacular sunsets, insects carrying something as large as them, a golden eagle soaring overhead, and plants growing in unusual places. To me, this is the magic and miracles in our world.

Both clients and I are now recognizing the magic and miracles that occur in sessions. For example, last week a client came in with asthmatic symptoms and was

Book Review: Struggles of a Dreamer – The Battle Between a Dream and Tradition

Posted June 8, 2018

By Yahaya Baruwa

I originally picked up this book assuming it would be about our nighttime dream state. To my pleasant surprise it turned out to be an interesting novel depicting ways in which we can live our lives. As the young boy’s grandmother reminds him “Often when the worst happens to you in life, it is not life punishing you; it is life pushing you to wake up.” Wisely included in this narrative are guidelines for living our lives,
