Is Intuition the Next Big Thing?

Jun 06, 2019

I recently read this article from the New York Times, "Psychic Mediums Are the New Wellness Coaches". I found it very relevant, touching on a topic that I have been discussing in my classes for many years.

I’ve had an issue with what I do – energy healing – being called “woo-woo.” Hey, I deserve more respect than that! That’s baby talk, and it’s usually said in a derogatory way. I heard a millennial recently call it “being in the woo”. That’s better - sounds kinda like “woke”, a new way of talking about a perspective that may have lost its perceived value in the advent of a more “scientific” mindset.

Intuitive perception can be helpful information, and often has a healing effect (although sometimes you get an aha! - so that’s what that psychic meant 10 years ago! Better late than never, eh?) And I believe intuition is the next big development in human evolution. But it takes practice to develop...

My Intuitive GPS

Apr 29, 2019

In my 20’s I was living in Chicago and would drive a short route home from downtown that took me past Cabriini Green, a notoriously dangerous housing project (hey, I was young and invincible! Not to mention naive.) One night I was going home late from work and suddenly got the “feeling” that I should go a different way - through the lively nightlife area Old Town.

In the middle of my drive, my tire went flat!

What if I had taken my usual route, past gangs, drug dealers and guns? I was very lucky that I was available for that intuitive information, and actually listened to it.  This was long before I studied energy healing and worked to develop reliable access to this kind of information.

In energy healing school, my fellow students and I were a bit shocked when our teacher said she took her guides grocery shopping. How banal! Later I started to understand the value of intuitive information in everyday life.

Fast forward some years (before Google Maps!) –...

Chakra Love

Feb 14, 2019

Chakras are engines that fuel our energy physiology, much like food fuels our physical body – little funnels drawing energy in from our environment. Rooted into our midline dynamic, which has many layers (think of the vertebrae, spinal cord, chakra channel, and Hara line) this energy is dispersed throughout our various bodies, both physical and energetic.

All ancient cultures have maps of the human energy field; the Chinese have meridians used in acupuncture, and the chakra model comes from India. There are seven major chakras, each feeding a distinct part of our anatomy as well as emotional and psychological aspects of our being.

There are three chakras in particular that are related to - LOVE! The 2nd, 4th, and 6th chakras manifest distinct variations on love, from sympathy to empathy to compassion.

The 2nd chakra (located in the belly) is related to our reproductive organs – and what greater expression of love is there than having a baby with someone? This kind of...

Resistance or Revolution?

Oct 02, 2018
I recently attended the RAAD Festival in San Diego, CA. It was pretty amazing and thought provoking. I want to be healthy until I die, and not suffer from the diseases that make late life so miserable. I am pro-active in terms of supplementing with bio-identical hormones, and I wanted to learn more (not to mention that I am in the field of health!)

The presentations were about cutting edge therapies involving genetic therapy, stem cells, epigenetics, biologics, natural substances that do very specific things in the micro-biome, enzymes from other animals that promote longevity – and a lot more of mostly cellular interventions. The scientific presentations were of varying degrees of lay-friendly. There are bio-technologies that will eradicate cancer, dementia and heart disease within our lifetimes. As the science is progressing exponentially, it is bringing up many challenging questions.

These issues are complex and pose questions not easily answered by science. If you can live...

Now is the Time - To Get Comfortable on the Wild Ride!

Jun 14, 2018

The sweetness of early summer is upon us – fresh growth, flowers scenting the air, and thunderstorms that enliven us. We have our dreams and reveries and plans – for relaxation, easy socializing and a more graceful, less pressured life.  And for a great many of us, it is against this relaxed backdrop that there is tremendous change and transformation going on.

I am not an astrologer but have learned over the years how much these really BIG energies affect us. I can easily see – because I am listening to clients and students – that it’s not just me going thru a particular phase.  And these days, and especially this summer, I see huge transitions going on. Dramatic shifts have been percolating for a while and will apparently be ongoing at least thru 2020.

This summer is a bell-weather moment on the march to 2020 (I won’t go into Mars, Uranus, Taurus and retrogrades, but do find an astrologer that speaks to you.)  Remember the...

Wherever You Go, There You Are

Feb 23, 2017

Some of you are aware I have been on a mini sabbatical since last fall, only teaching and working with my graduate level students until the next Energy Awareness and Healing Practicum in April. During my sabbatical I had the wonderful offer of a cottage in the Scottish Highlands for a month! In my Scottish travels I ended up doing healing work wherever I went. Along the way I also used my intuitive skills to tap into some pretty amazing energies. Being able to align my Hara and drop into Being (the simplest, most basic technique I teach and still constantly use) allowed me to sense into standing stones, energy fields and forms, and see scenes from the past. From battlefields to burial sites to the ley lines under ancient Rosslyn Chapel (the final location in Dan Brown’s “The DaVinci Code”) I was able to interact with a bigger version of reality than the average person.

The cottage I stayed at in the coastal village of Dornoch happened to be in the heart of MacKay...

The Nation is Suffering

Nov 23, 2016

America is rocked, shaken to the core. Our world – or our idea of our world – is broken. Broken for people who are fighting for their survival and exhibiting those base instincts that are generated from that place – fear, anger, hate. Broken for people who were complacent, even smug, that a continual, upward progressive spiral in society’s values was a given. The only given is that there is suffering, and relief from suffering can be sought in cultivating consciousness, compassion, and our spiritual essence.

The bigger picture is this; in-breath, out-breath, expansion followed by contraction. This is the basic pulse of the universe and applies to all things. The Dark Ages was followed by the Renaissance. A period of growth on Earth is followed by an Ice Age (yes, between climate change and the nuclear option this could be a very big outbreath.) Life and death! It’s all part of the picture. As Byron Katie says, when you argue with reality you lose 100%...

A Rebel with Oh So Many Causes

Oct 29, 2016

"The forms of Zen Buddhism – black robes, chanting, incense and sitting in zazen– seemed all too familiar to me, echoes of many past lives."
 

I recently became lay-ordained as a Zen Buddhist. I have been hanging around Zen temples since my teens, but was never much interested in studying the literature and linage of the form. Of course I picked up some of those teachings along the way – more than I had thought, actually – but I was drawn to Zen because of its main emphasis on the direct experience of zazen (meditation). I am big on direct experience – I teach all my students to sense energy; first in the body, and then developing the ability to sense ever more subtle form.  I want them to be able to discern for themselves what is true, not blindly believe what they are told. As I have delved into more formal Zen Buddhist study these past few years I have also been investigating my relationship to form, boundaries, limits and authority.

It is...

Kindred Spirits - The Plant World

The McKay Method® Graduate Retreat

In addition to the Graduate Celebration, the Retreat is an opportunity to reconnect with The McKay Method® community every year. We typically explore an area we don’t normally cover in classes, such as working with land, plant, animal and mineral energies. This year we communicated with ancient trees and made prayer flags to adorn the graduation tree. Two of the presentations were specifically about plant energies - another was about levels of consciousness and trees are certainly highly conscious beings. We started the Retreat with a meditation on Ayahuasca energy, which blew our minds without blowing out our bodies!

The Retreat was held at the WD Ranch, in Melville, Montana. The WD Ranch is an old-time authentic cattle ranch where we held a few early retreats; our hosts, Paul and Elli Hawks, are part of The McKay Method® community. The majestic Crazy Mountains form the backdrop to a powerful...

The Master Designer

Apr 26, 2016

It has long been commonly said that we only use 10% of our brain’s potential. Whether that exact number is accurate or not, the idea that we have this unused brain real estate has fostered much speculation about what’s possible for humanity.

Like in the film Lucy, where Scarlett Johanssen walks into a room and knocks everyone unconscious with a thought (and that’s only at 60%), we dream of power. Not just the physical powers of the current gaggle of superheroes, but mental capacities that we can only imagine.

The connection between mind and body is being acknowledged as a reality in health care. Technology that works with the efficacy of the mind has been around for some time now. Revolutionary when it was first introduced, Biofeedback uses the mind to create changes in the body. Neurofeedback is using the brain to change itself, prompting the brain to alter neural pathways for better mental health.

Now another breakthrough in technology called Transcranial...
