During morning meditation today I revisited a place in the inner temple where I met a spirit by the name of Uli. More on that later as I am still in the middle of writing a new post in the Journey Journal. Anyway, the lesson was connection and perception. Uli, in short, made a show of how she connects to all the things she perceives: Sun, moon, stars, grass, wind.

This idea creates an opening, a feeling of unfolding, an aaaaaah that I experience below my navel, and that spreads across my entire being. This week has in a large part been about nurturing and tending relationships (Tarot Weekly) with ourself, our loved ones, and potentially new relationships.

In broader sweeps I see the release of emotional baggage, and karma associated with relationships. Clearing the channel leaves the healer, visionary, open to hold a greater space for love, insight, and energy to pass through.

Others, healers, and seers are the forerunners of tomorrow, keep your self healthy. Observe your interactions, your relationships, how you meet them, tend them, and cultivate them.

Our true message is within the center of these fires of the heart.

~Tarot Weekly

*Sips a rather pepper English Breakfast tea…*

Okay, so, perception. As I come through my aaaaaah and open my eyes and my tweetdeck, I see a post by Chati.

Hello hello.

I’m very sorry for the late post, but I’ve had a very busy and full day… and this isn’t my full time job, however much I would like for it to be. No really, pay me and I will make it so. *wink*

Any-ho-ho here’s the bits from the reading and a few updates. They all interrelate, you know how I like to draw lines.

First the Conscious Life Expo (post conference) with Hank Wesselman.

As I read The Bowl of Light and get better acquainted with him and the story I am moved to comment and support his work and path. You can read the review here, at Lifencompass. I love this book.

Yesterday was no exception to my enjoyment, or my exploration. Hank is lovingly multifaceted, humorous, intelligent, detailed, wise, and learned. I sat in the presence of an elder and I came away better for it. First for knowing that his work rings truth and second that he is, really, a walker between worlds. There was a distinctive twinkle in his eyes that communicated the light of what he represents and teaches. We’re lucky to have him, and people like him, in the world today. He sees into you, he looks at you from the heart. A Shaman.

After the seminar, and some Journey Work to the drum: forgiveness. Healing. Compassion. My friend K and I took some time to catch up and talk about events in the world. Most specifically the recent changes and the quickened, or compact, nature of the latests shifts. (See end of last year through present).

I have to reference this week, last weeks reading:

The spirit addresses us in those who command the physical. Men or women who are rulers in their own right, leaders, kings, emperors, politicians, officials. The light shines through them, their message or the message around them. This is significant in that their decisions are affecting our environment, the physical and social realms that we operate within. The mother.

We are rulers in our own right. Do not let persuasive power move you. Keep your wit and your strength, by claiming your own choices (destiny) and going the direction that feels right for your own growth, practice, or period of life.

This flows with and through a pervasive sense of rising waters as the energy shifts in the subtle, that are chaning consciousness. It is as if the flavor of things have changed and we are all experiencing it. Some of us on a conscious level, others simply living through it.

This week the catalyst has been sent to us. The cracks in the world of last weeks reading have been set to motion, as the Tower places center in our weekly spread.

Tarot Weekly Feb 14-20, 2011

I would like to have this song playing but the music The House that Jack Built playing as you read the weekly, but I couldn’t find a quality version online.

This is the house that Jack built, y’all
Remember this house!

This was the land that he worked by hand
The was the dream of an upright man
This was the room that was filled with love
This was a love that I was proud of
This was a life of a love I planned
Of a love and a life we loved
Of the house that Jack built.
Remember this house!

There was the fence that held our love,
There was the gate that he walked out of
This is the heart that is turned to stone
This was the house, but it ain’t no home
This is the love that I once had
In a dream that I thought was love,
This is the house that Jack built,
I’m gonn’ remember this house!

Oh-ohh wha-a-at’s the use of crying?
Because I brought it on myself
There’s no denying
But it see-e-ee-ems awful funny
That I didn’t understand
Was it a house of an upright man

~Aretha Franklkin

The call this week is for authenticity. To speak from the place of power that has been defined by ourself, within ourself, and in the world and relationships. Our dear Queen of Swords has appeared again in reverse. Though normally she is the direct speaker, often received as harsh, her words are now split or subtle. This tells me that our words can be misinterpreted or that observing the inner dialogue will reveal motivations or paths that can lead us to our goals without direct intervention or confrontation.

These are mental games to watch for in yourself. In either realm, especially the energetic, keep your poise and balance by maintaining grace and authenticity. Be moved by your choices and not the choices of others…

The next two cards ask questions about our changes. What are you holding on? Why are you holding on to it?  What are your choices? What feels right in the heart and makes sense? The heart is not the leader but one of our voices, the conversation must include the head for discernment and practicality. Meaning that you can spend a lot of time over analyzing but, hello *poke* this is the tower, it’s burning. Time to move folks.

Change is upon you but the power to deflect what can feel like a strike at you is yours. Authenticity requires that we are absolutely truthful with ourself about ourself, our motives, wants, and needs. Act from a place of light and awareness. That very thing lessens any connection to human dramas that may evolve from this change. Be above it (spiritual) and within it (grounded and present), let your honesty shine.

Change is now. It is irrevocable as a cycle completes a final turn and begins to close. The time for planning and negotiating, deciding direction and picking opportunities is past. The Tower burns, meaning that the structure is indeed hashed, the end is now.

The Eight of Cups Reversed….

“The reversed Eight of Cups suggests that you may be feeling confused about where your best options lie. Part of you wants to explore new horizons and possibilities, but another part of you fears that in doing so, you’ll miss out on what your current circumstances have to offer.

The Eight of Cups reversed also represents knowing when to walk away from a situation that is ultimately not working for you.” ~Biddy Tarot

“In a reversed position, the Eight of Cups often indicates struggles concerning separation or moving on. There may be on over attachment to one’s past. In some cases, the Eight of Cups can indicate co-dependency or fear of being alone. There may be a reluctance to mature or grow up. Although you may feel dissatisfied, your fears are preventing you from moving on.” ~Tarot Readings online.

The fear there to be watched for is “giving up the dream,” because it could feel like you are walking away from your path. The reality is that only you can abandon that dream. Situations do not force you away from it, they only offer alternative directions is our intentions are set on the path and the goal.

The path can hardly be called a straight line from point A to point B. There are twists and turns.

I see that moment in the movie Labyrinth where a young Jennifer Connelly, as Sarah is entering the labyrinth. A little catarpillar tries to direct her through what appears to be a solid wall. No going forward, no way in, but it is an illusion. She passes through the the wall and see’s two new directions.

Unfortunately Sarah doesn’t heed the advice of her little ally and she takes a left or right path, when she could have walked right up to the tower of the Goblin King and skipped the whole dam labyrinth. Isn’t that the fools quest…

My intuition points at this: quiet your tongue about your goal and ambition, much like spell-craft it can be knocked off course by psychic interfearence. (Often unitentional). Keep that to yourself or only with those who have your goal in mind and support it, unequivocally. The end of a period related to structures in your life has come.  Do not fall into despair, walk hidden paths, seek the exit from the structure which is crumbling around you. This is a physical structure as in a job or home situation, things built on agreements with other people.

Say goodbye to that House that Jack Built, use the challenges you have at the moment to strengthen your inner fire; and protect that flame, veil it.

The support you may need can come from high and/or low. The presence of the White Phoenix lends aid from the upper realms as spiritual transformation, mirroring what happens at the soul level. As above so below.

And below… Yes there is a pink stone, a rhodochrosite on a matrix of pyrite. This is both protection (pyrite) and energizing and related to the heart (rhodochrosite) helping to circulate the energy of love, compassion, alchemy, and transformation.

Times can seem trying, tough, but if we keep faith in our abilities, self-determination, and instincts while lending trust to the forces that seek our betterment both physically and spiritually we can overcome anything and evolve into something greater.

Know. Will. Dare. Keep silent. And give offerings of thanks for those that assist you.

I was going to wait until I finished this book before I posted a review but I learned that Hank Wesselman will be at the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles this month and I had to get this out to share my excitement at meeting the author in the near future.

The Bowl of Light: Ancestral Wisdom from a Hawaiian Shaman is a story, retelling the events around Hank’s meeting and growing friendship with Kahuna elder, Hale Makua. Interestingly enough I happen to have a friend who I have in the past gone to for information about her Hawaiian culture and spiritual traditions. Being a granddaughter of a spiritual elder from the islands I feel she’s my “go-to girl” for this type of spiritual information. I had to talk to her about it because, interestingly enough, her Grandfather is mentioned in the book.

So… the two of us are going to the event on Monday, February 14th at the Hilton Los Angeles: Spirit Medicine: An Overview Of Shamanic Healing. That hyperlink should take you to the events page, it’s roughly a 2 1/2 gathering and talk about healing.

Course Description

Join Hank as he examines the three classic causes of illness and the four levels of Shamanic healing and explores the nature of health and illness from the perspective of some of the Earth’s indigenous people. You will learn ancient, time-tested ways of entering the Shamanic state of consciousness where you can connect with your spirit helpers and healing masters and learn how to work with them in your personal place of power and healing in the inner worlds.

From the Conscious Life Expo:

In the Western world today, interest in complementary and alternative therapies is on the rise, and increasing numbers of health care practitioners and laypersons alike are discovering the ease with which the healing modalities developed by the traditional tribal shamans and medicine makers can be learned and practiced. In this workshop, we examine the nature of health, illness and healing from the cross-cultural perspective of the indigenous peoples. This experiential event includes an overview of the three classic causes of illness and the four traditional levels of healing and concludes with a powerful healing ritual.

Note: Please bring hand drums and rattles (if you have them), a notebook, a bandana or eyeshade and a light blanket.

I will be there. I have purchased my ticket as of this morning. If you feel the call, come on out, I’ll see you there!

Now where was I? Oh… right. The book!

I know you know the feeling, reading something that feels right. The Bowl of Light has taken me on an honest journey through the telling of Hank’s meeting with Hale Makua. There are points within the book such as prayers, and answers to, Pele that have caused me to smile and nod. I’m familiar with my spirit connections, these things I understand because I have them. Then there are other tellings -mind you never too much, breaking tradition or revealing that which should not be given away- such as the understanding of what the bowl of light IS, in the Hawaiian tradition, and many other examples that connect the dots [in my head] to other mystical / tribal traditions.

I’m an avid book reader so my “for instances” can contain some cross-pollination between books. I think that’s OK seeing how the references connect.

For instance…

Christopher Penczak, in his latest book by Copper Cauldron Publishing called The Three Rays of Witchcraft brings up into the light the Three Cauldron’s, or foundations, of Awen. This book is a whole review in and of itself but I am still working on some of the advanced exercises contained within the Three Rays of Witchcraft, but I need time to process and digest those. In short, awesome, but now, my point.

The three Cauldrons as Christopher illustrates, are spiritual vessels within the body at the head, the  heart, and the belly. In his instruction with this Inner Alchemy we are filling up and balancing these cauldrons with energy, light. They are balanced by rays, the three rays in fact, and each is a descent of Power, Love and Wisdom, thus the title of the book. What I found interesting as I read there in the working of the cauldrons is a message that I have heard many times over. To channel, one must make the vessel clear, ready to pass the energy with clarity. One of my first references was Frank Fool’s Crow, and his instruction on clearing the body as a vessel for Wanken to heal, “we must make ourselves like hollow bones.”

This message I found in the Bowl of Light. I asked my friend about her grandfathers connection within the story and then excitedly invited her to the event with Hank Wesselman. She  responded enthusiastically describing the spirituality, as Makua had taught Hank, as I read, of the bowl of light…

“At twilight, Makua got up, using his walking stick for stability, and lurched over to his truck to reach for something in the bed behind the cab. He returned to the table under the shelter with a large pu’olo, a ti-leaf bundle that was wrapped  and tied in the traditional style. He presented it to Jill and me with a grin and the simple word makana – ‘gift.’

We eyed the large, leafy bundle with anticipation for several long moments, savoring this time in the dying light of the last day of the year. Then we opened it excitedly and found within a beautiful yet simple wooden bowl made in the Hawaiian style and shaped like the lower half of a gourd.

‘This is your bowl of light,’ intoned the kahuna with a warm smile, ‘the light that was a gift from you ‘Aumakua, your immortal spiritual soul that divided itself before you were born. Each of us comes into the world from the great beyond with our seed of light. This light nourishes us and sustains us as we pass through life-but as we grow in experience and wisom, things happen.

‘Sometimes we lie. Sometimes we steal, and sometimes we injure others through our thoughts, our actions, or our words. When we step into the negative polarity, it is as though we put a stone in our bowl, and some of our light goes out. Slowly through time, our bowl of light fills up with stones, and our light dims until it is nearly gone.’

Makua stopped and looked at us with great seriousness. ‘The great problem in the world today is that the whole show is being run by individuals whose bowls of light are filled with stones. With few exceptions…

(later)

‘Hopefully, we wake up to what is going on and discover what we are doing.’ The elder paused dramatically, his expressive dark eyes luminous. ‘At that moment, we become aware that our bowl of light is almost filled with stones and there is almost no light shining forth. And you know what we do then?’ Makua paused and his gazed turned serious. Jill and I hung on every word.

Gently he took the wooden bowl from me and turned it over, shaking it vigorously. ‘We simply dump it out!’ A huge roar of laughter burst forth from all of us…”

The Bowl of Light: Ancestral Wisdom from a Hawaiian Shaman, Hank Wesselman, PhD, Chapter 3, pg 47-48.

There is a lot more to this book. Talks about mana, illuminations on the Spiritual Warrior society, and interesting thoughts on polarity and spiritual purpose. It is a gem. More than the overwritten “how to” book. This is good storytelling containing seeds of light for your own “bowl” or cauldron.

I’m going to finish up the stories soon. I’d like to recommend this book to the spiritual seeker or those interested in getting more than just an anthropological perspective on Hawaiian spirituality. It isn’t taken without permission, it has been given and with respect, retold and passed along in a way that I think the spirit of Mauka, and many other ancestors would be pleased.

The Bowl of Light has not yet been released. I’ve been blessed with an advance copy. You will be able to pick up your own copy soon.

Hello. Hello!

Yes I finally did it, I opened the doors to Lifencompass / my home and started a healing share. I began by calling it a Reiki Share but I feel that there are just too many great healing modalities that work well together to limit it to Reiki alone. Besides the work “reiki” is just to limiting lately. There is so much more to it than the “#hashtag” “#Reiki” has become. Today, with a few healers I have worked with over the years, we draw together a start, a circle of healing in Downtown LA. And in the case of anyone thinking, Um why didn’t you call me? I started with students and healers I have established a working relationship with, and those that arrived become what I hope is the seed.

I’m excited!

The energy of the house, that sits within a little healing grid, has changed already and a lot has come in and through in preparation. I am REALLY happy with this. My life, my changes, and my path feel… on point.

So, in the future I’m looking at expanding the circle and opening up the healing practice again, and, and, and, moving forward in this new direction. It’s time. I’m glad you have walked along with me. Anticipate new things, maybe like once a month. Expect invitations.

For updates you can add me as a friend on Facebook:

I’ve been personally interested in this film for some time. Watching again the video this morning I am hit on many sides with the beauty and issues of Native Peoples, their spirituality, and the world in which we live. The world we have created.

I’m reading through a new book called The Energy Cure (below) and enjoying the story of William Bengston’s venture into the world of Energy Healing. A very comfortable topic for myself.

Though I have a long history of Reiki, I had previous experience from childhood, and even healing through magickal methods, all of which I bring together now with an ever expanding experience. I believe in these types of recovery’s, these “cures” because people experience them. They happen. I’ve seen it in family, and friends.

The author makes a statement that he came from a skeptical point of view, and I must admit that type of introduction usually pings the “skeptic” in me. Whenever I see it I have to fight my knee jerk reaction that says, your telling me you’re a skeptic so that the evidence will be more believable.

I didn’t feel that once I began to read the book because I recognized experience that I understood.

Regardless of how you feel about these sorts of things, you may enjoy the read, the photographs of the mice both sick and cured and the 35  year journey of William Bengston.

The power of the human being is an amazing thing, and we are connected to many beautiful and unseen forces that aid us. That is my experience.

The Energy Cure
Unraveling The Mystery Of Hands-On Healing

By William Bengston, PhD, with Sylvia Fraser

October 2010
Paperback  / BK01588
290 pages / 5.25″ x 8”
Health / Mind-Body
US $18.95

U.S. Rights only

Synopsis:  Can hands-on healing can cure cancer? Skeptics say no. One man’s research — in 10 controlled, university experiments with cancer-injected mice — shows that it does. This is a self-proclaimed skeptical scientist’s story.

Scroll down for facts & research history.

Video

Bill Bengston tells us how he began a lifelong exploration of the validity of hands-on healing—and his plans to remain a skeptic despite finding astonishing results through three decades of clinical studies.

Facts

  • Over the past 35 years, Bengston has successfully treated many types of cancer—bone, pancreatic, breast, brain, rectal, lymphatic, stomach, leukemia—as well as other diseases, all using a hands-on technique that is painless, noninvasive, and has no unpleasant side effects.
  • To Bengston’s knowledge, no person he has healed ever experienced a recurrence.
  • The effectiveness of Bengston’s hands-on treatment has now been proven in 10 controlled animal-experiments, conducted in 5 university medical and biological laboratories by trained, skeptical researchers.
  • Bengston’s treatment is not faith based. Neither patient nor practitioner is expected to believe in anything, including the process itself, for it to be effective.
  • Bengston does not consider hands-on healing to be a replacement for traditional Western medicine.
  • Bengston is a sociology professor at St. Joseph’s College in New York.
  • Bengston did not begin by testing mice in a lab, producing a theory that now awaits human application. He went into the lab to verify and gain insight into a procedure that he had already successfully used to cure many people of a variety of medical problems, especially cancer.

Summary of Bengston’s Research History

  • Bengston’s first experiment was conducted with mice in 1975 in the biology department at Queens College of the City University of New York.
  • Mice bred for research were injected with a particularly lethal strain of mammary cancer that had always resulted in 100 percent fatality within 14 to 27 days. Through hands-on healing, 100 percent of the mice survived the disease to become cancer free and to live a normal two-year life span!
  • This experiment was replicated once more at Queens College with the same 100 percent success. Eight other replications, with minor variations, at four other biological and medical laboratories produced comparable results.
  • Just as amazing, mice that were re-injected with cancer cells did not get cancer, suggesting they had developed an immunity.
  • Recently, Bengston has been undergoing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRIs, which are multilevel scans more detailed than CAT scans) and electroencephalographs (EEGs, which measure the brain’s electrical activity) while in healing mode.
  • Bengston’s published articles: www.bengstonresearch.com/scientific-articles/
  • Most recently: “Breakthrough: Clues to Healing with Intention.” Edge Science, no.2, January/March 2010, p.5-9.www.scientificexploration.org/edgescience/

What People Are Saying

“In both my professional and personal lives, I have witnessed what Dr. William Bengston shares about energy medicine, and so I can accept and believe what he presents in The Energy Cure. Human beings have enormous healing potential built into them, and they, like all forms of life, can survive a great variety of illnesses—without traditional medical intervention. ”

—Bernie Siegel, MD author of Faith, Hope & Healing and Help Me to Heal

“Very infrequently, a scientist comes along whose work leads to a quantum change in the quality and significance of research in some field. Such a scientist is William Bengston, who is responsible for such a change in the recondite field of anomalous healing. His results are so extraordinary as to eclipse all previous work in that field. Bengston would be a prime candidate for a Nobel Prize in Alternative Medicine, if such an award existed.”

—Peter Sturrock, emeritus professor of applied physics at Stanford University

“Great advances in science and medicine often occur at the edge of knowledge, where things don’t fit in. Often the misfits are dismissed by conventional thinkers without a hearing.  Where William Bengston’s work is concerned, this would be a profound mistake, because many precise scientific studies now confirm that healers and healing are real. Somewhere along the line, physicians forgot how to heal, and ‘healing’ became an embarrassment. Bengston is a harbinger of a marvelous trend: the return of healing to medicine.”

—Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words

“I believe that energy healing’s time will come in the next ten years and that William Bengston’s work will be seen as a milestone in that process. We’re already experiencing a meltdown of faith in materialistic systems, and that includes the grip of the profit-driven pharmaceutical industry on medical practice.”

—Dr. Edward Mann, Canadian sociologist and energy healing historian

“Bill Bengston is a criminologist, sociologist, statistician, college professor, cancer researcher, energy healer. An expert in all these fields! I have been in Bill’s orbit observing him engage others in rich dialogue. The consistent effect of his thesis of life challenges even brilliant minds to rethink their foundational assumptions. Bill’s mesmerizing memoir reads like a novel.”

—Francesca McCartney, doctor of energy medicine, founder and president of Energy Medicine University, author of Body of Health:The New Science of Intuition Medicine®

“Professor William Bengston is shaking the foundations of medical research. What is at stake is the entire clinical trial process. In carefully carried-out experiments Professor Bengston showed dramatic healing of cancer tumors in mice using energy medicine. By tracing the path of healing intention, he has found that it follows surprising turns and is not easy to control. The simple model of a controlled study does not work in medicine. Bengston’s story is one of breakthrough discoveries and a fascinating tale that is not yet complete.”

—Garret Moddel, professor of electrical engineering, Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering, University of Colorado.

“Bill Bengston has all the creds and talent to make it big-time in mainstream academia, but he also has the guts to stick to what he sees and knows, and tell us about it, even if it is way out of the box. Here we have his very exciting adventures in healing, with decidedly anomalous results. It is to Bill’s great credit that he tells it like it is, and sustains the contact with this mind-bending material so that it is neither distorted, ignored, or blown out of proportion. Really excellent work!”

—Richard A. Blasband, MD, formerly faculty member of Yale Medical School

“Bengston’s research on the healing of cancer in mice is an eye-opener, both for its direct implications and for what it says about the difficulty of gaining acceptance for unconventional results, no matter how well documented. His methodology is clear, his results are unambiguous, and several experiments strongly suggest that his healing technique is teachable. Whether you’re a healer, a doctor, a biologist, or simply an interested citizen, you owe it to yourself to find out what Bill has been learning over the last two decades.”

—York Dobyns, physicist, Princeton University

In keeping with the trend of forecasting energetic trends, I bring you an excerpt from Michelle Karen’s blog.

Look for:

((NEWSLETTER EXCERPT))

We are blessed with a Solar Eclipse on Tuesday January 3 at 1:03 AM at 13º39′ Capricorn.

This degree is represented in the Sabian Symbols by the following image: “An ancient bas-relief carved in granite remains a witness to a long-forgotten culture”. Eclipses are always days of intensified energy which shift our lives permanently to a whole new level of experience and consciousness. Everything done/said on an eclipse day tends to be final. No matter what happens, we should take extra care in remaining positive and loving. This particular eclipse asks us to re-evaluate our goals and ambitions, as well as our place in society. We may want to simplify our immediate reality. As more and more of the knowledge carried within from past/parallel civilizations remember itself within us, the more wisdom and power we exude. An important time to remember who we really are in our divinity and where we come from in an expanded concept of reality.

Saturn turns retrograde on Tuesday January 25

3′ Libra. This degree is symbolized in the Sabian Symbols by: “Two men placed under arrest”. A time to seriously question the duties, responsibilities and obligations our conditioning has made us blindly accept. Even if this means that we could become vastly misunderstood. The more we awaken to our personal power, the truer to ourselves we become, the less tolerant we may be toward structures that have lost their meaning to us. It is a time to reach personal mastery and be clear in our hearts on what rules we truly want to follow and why. On the road to enlightenment we have to follow as much as we can, the dictates of our inner truth.

via January 2011 : Michelle Karen Books, Astrology – A Special Tool for Personal Empowerment.

What I don’t see mentioned here are the great words from her email, which I found quite helpful. Here are some excerpts as well.

********

As this new year 2011 starts, we are truly being projected into the unknown. In the Mayan Calendar, this one-before-last year is our last chance to clear our karma. This is why everything is coming to a head in such a violent way, forcing us to face the consequences of our actions,  but most profoundly, look at our thoughts/images, our feelings and the realities they create in our external world.

This Solar Eclipse talks about the need to find passion in our lives, fully commit ourselves to our spiritual growth, to projects that make us soar, as well as to a deep relationship -first to ourselves in the marriage of the masculine and the feminine within- and then to another whom we have a strong soul bond with. We are seeking nothing less than true intimacy with a person with whom we are of matching power and can relate to in body, mind, soul and spirit. This position is also likely to reveal what is keeping us from true love, what false/limiting/limited beliefs we still hold on to that prevent us from experiencing the joys of shared love. It is a time to dwell profoundly into the thoughts we have surrounding relationships and sexuality. Unexpected fortuitous events involving friends, the pursuit of educational, humanitarian or spiritual interests support us in realizing dreams and visions we’ve held for a long time for a deep personal relationship.

It also requires of us to see our own beauty, own our personal power and stand in our passion.

We could be led to creating new adventurous streams of income that require that we take certain risks in expanding our skills.

Limitations could be felt in our domestic circumstances, somewhat stifling the scope of our actions. But if we remain mindful that the change we want to see in the world first needs to occur in our own perception, then those blocks will automatically disappear and we’ll truly become the masters of our destiny. Making our home a sanctuary to bring the sacred into our daily lives could become important.

On a professional level these were / are important foot notes. I thought it would be beneficial to you to share them. Do with them as you will.

Where ever this finds you, I hope you are having a lovely new year.

Hey…

Silly me, I just realized I was on vacation. In my mind I was thinking I still had a week to go but in fact, I’m free of all mundane obligations to my real estate position. That leaves time for other things and I would love to devote some of that time to folks who were in need of some healing or face time for guidance, Essential Oils, or what not.

Please contact me if you are in or going to be around the area. I will be gone for the actual “Christmas Holiday” DAY but pretty much home-centric for the rest of the month, including New Years which I will spend with my lovely friends at Santee Court.

Send me an email or give a poke or gab on facebook and I’ll respond as soon as humanly possible.

Hoping you have weathered this retrograde and the holiday’s.
