Heroes Feb 22, 2024

“My life is my message.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Our greatest heroes are those who affected the rest of humanity through their example - without violence. Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr. are a few. Now Alexei Navalny will forever stand among those who made great sacrifices for the cause of freedom. Freedom from oppression; freedom to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. All deserve equal treatment, respect and consideration....

Chakra Love Feb 15, 2024

Listen to the audio version

I celebrate love in all its forms on Valentines, for the sweet-hearted. There are three chakras in particular - the 2nd, 4th, and 6th - that manifest distinct variations on love, from sympathy to empathy to compassion.

All ancient cultures have maps of the human energy field; the Chinese have the meridians 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...

Ride the Dragon! Feb 08, 2024

Listen to the audio version

I always officially start my year with the Chinese calendar… it takes my ADHD brain that long to get in gear. This year is especially auspicious. In other astrological zodiacs there is never ONE best sign to be, except in the Chinese system - the Dragon IS the best! It’s also the only mythological creature of their zodiac. When the strength of the Dragon combines with the Wood element, it brings vision, growth and evolution. So let’s ride the...

A Crazy Scene Feb 01, 2024

For each land energy story I’ve written about in this series, there are many more in my files. I want to share one that involves ALL the variables possible when working on a property. I was called to investigate a flat in an Edwardian building across the street from the “panhandle”. A long narrow park leading into San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, in the late 60’s great bands of the time - Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix - had played...

Toward Healing Jan 26, 2024

I just got back from an ongoing adventure with the students who are in my 2YR deep dive healing program. We meet every three months (at the Mercy Center in San Francisco) and spend four pretty intense days learning, practicing and receiving energy work. We start every day together at breakfast, with a simple, healthy and varied menu that always includes some egg dish, oatmeal, meat, fruit, yogurt, whole grain/gluten free bread, coffee and tea, and always - at every meal! - fresh avocado.

Then...

Respecting Natureā€™s Shadow Side Jan 18, 2024

Land energy is a complex category. It’s influenced by deep geological forces, the composition of the earth’s mantle and crust, gravity, the atmosphere - even the cosmos beyond!

While complicated, on assignment I’m usually concerned with what’s just above and below the surface that creates corresponding energy flows and fields. Water and energy are similar in quality and form, both in our bodies and the earth’s body. This is why water, whether surface or...

Sacred Lands Jan 11, 2024

People take my healing classes for many reasons. It can be the first step toward a healing career, or add value to a current healing practice. Half of my students come for personal growth. They also learn ways to help themselves, family and friends with health issues.

I also become a go-to resource when something has gone wrong. That’s how I ended up on this job! One of my students was a real estate agent in Aspen, Colorado. A property wasn't selling, and no one could figure out why.

Mysterious, Remarkable
Energy Work
Jan 04, 2024

I’ll be starting another mini-series on an area of healing this month. I’ve written about ghost busting, how past lives can affect a person physically in this life and communicating with those that have passed (all on my website.) 

I have worked with ghosts over the years, but it’s just one part of clearing a location. Other aspects are the land energies inherent on the property; energy trapped in building materials from past events; or recent human activity that is...

Pause Before the New Dec 28, 2023

It’s the end of one year and the beginning of another. We ponder accomplishments and challenges of the previous year and envision our hopes, dreams (and course corrections) for the new year. Unhappiness comes from being dissatisfied with the present - so we imagine something different from the now.

Yet in very real terms NOW is all that exists. It can be a refreshing place, spacious and free of past entanglements and complications, full of possibility. Why not spend some time in that...

A Big Bang? Dec 21, 2023

In 2023 there have been more super-powered astrological events than normal. Humankind is lurching toward a monumental shift. Will it be our extinction? Or possibly, “This is the Age of Aquarius”! The song*, from the rock opera “Hair” in 1967, foretold an era of “peace and love, harmony and understanding.” Astrologers have noted the position of the stars and planets are similar to the 1960’s and 70’s - times of immense growth in consciousness,...

Peace on Earth Dec 14, 2023

Love and fear are the major poles in our world of duality. There is no distinction once you transcend duality and realize the underlying reality of absolute oneness - pure love. The base emotion of fear is responsible for violence and war. It’s baked into the fact of our physical beings that we are seemingly separate from others. The impulse to survive and protect stems from this; although gone awry, it becomes the desire to accumulate excessive wealth and power.

This holiday season,...

Santa Lives! Dec 07, 2023

Mid-winter celebrations have been going on around the world forever. It could be an awfully dreary and depressing time of year without them. We socialize more, reaching out to family, friends, and the larger community. We are moved to volunteer and donate to help others, and indulge in special foods and drink. We bring trees and lights into our homes; there are beautiful decorations everywhere you go. Familiar music abounds and we sing and celebrate at gatherings both religious and secular.
