The Turning of the Year and the Heart of the Winter Solstice.

I was talking to my students this past wk end about this Iron Tiger year that we have been in and how this has been affecting us energetically. Here is what I have noticed.

Years ago I had the chance to interact with tiger cubs and a big female white tiger at Albuquerque zoo. Tigers are known to live much of their lives alone, except to mate.   The energy f these great cats is one of energy of isolation, patience and fierceness. These qualities have been a part of the energy dynamic this past year and we have seen it in action. Many of you may have felt isolated this past year. But there I good news!

On Feb 3 rd, Chinese New Year rings in and the year of the Iron Rabbit begins. Rabbits live in warrens are more social than tigers. My hope is that based on this energy change  we will have a year of more cooperation and consensus.

Isolation is necessary to discern who we are and what is important to us. We need that quiet self- reflection. But we are a human family and we need to also step back into relationship to someone other than ourselves.

I hope this new year reawakens our sense of community as we move out of isolation. Let us find common ground again. Cooperation is key, with this, we can get things done and moving forward again. The energy is posed to help us do this.

The element iron is about grief and sorrow, as well as, being a weapon of war. As we move thru this iron cycle over the next 8 years we are encouraged to process our grief and examine the martial nature within our society and within ourselves. Letting go of our wounds and finding peace within ourselves will reflect back into society, of which we are a part.

Let’s find our community this coming year—- like minded people who love and support us. My wish is for each of you is to discovery your larger human family and your place in it.

My husband and I have been reading  a set of  books by Marion Zimmer Bradley, which feature the goddess and the ancient ways of the goddess. As I gazed at the full moon lunar eclipse that happened on the solstice this came to mind. First, I reflected on the fact that an eclipse like this had not happening in 372 years ago. It was remarkable to think back to how our ancestors might have felt seeing an eclipse like this one. And also to rteflect on how the world has changed over the centuries.

Personally as the moon went dark on the first day of the return of the light, I felt that the goddess was also returning, not in the old ways, but that she was reintegrating for the first time in centuries with the solar force of the sun.

This marriage is both powerful and necessary as we balance the forces of the sun and moon, the masculine and feminine , the anima and the animus within ourselves.

This is a a time of reintegration and renewal.

Use this time wisely, vision and dream of wholeness, both personally and collectively. Send out light to those you love and to those who challenge you. Salute them all for they are your teachers !

Happy New Year and Namaste

Mercury went retrograde on Friday and will be Conjunct Pluto til the solstice.

Drinking Water Solutions

I know that many of you have been drinking bottled and vended water perhaps from a long time. Did you know that bottled water has no more regulations that tap water and that many of the bottled waters  are tap water that has been but thru a reverse osmosis system and stripped of the vital minerals that water conveys into our cells directly thru cellular osmosis?

I really think this is linked to the higher incidence of osteoporosis that we have been seeing recently, since we are not getting our minerals from the water when we drink bottles water.

We have found a solid carbon block filtration system that you should know about. It’s called Multi-Pure and they have been marketed for 30+yrs. They are certified by the National Sanitation Foundation and remove the volatile organic chemicals (VOC’s) that most systems don’t touch cause the molecules of the chemicals are too small to be filtered our of the water.

Plus for every gallon of water produced my most Reverse Osmosis systems you have to use 6 gallons of water is wasted. With Water being the new oil in this century we can’t afford to waste it.

Many VOC’s are endocrine disruptors and they cause all kinds of chronic problems, disease and cancers. Solid carbon is a tried and true means for removing chemicals from your water because Multi-pure solid block removes to .5 sub microns

Recently Multi Pure  came out with a new system that is affordable to everyone. They make it really easy to purchace a superior water system.Just call or email me and I can set you up.

You will taste the difference, and you will save money and not have all the waste and plastic bottles that leach chemicals into your water.  My vet when he examines my 17.5 yr old Siamese cat  said her kidneys looked like a cat 1/2 her age and bought a unit for his vet clinic right there and then. Our cats, dog and plants thrive like we do.

If you contact me I can set you up with a great system that will save you money  and help safe the planet from plastic bottles. 415 435-8015 or email me thru this blog.

PS.  Never drink distilled water the boiling process of the distillation actually increases the volatility of the chemicals in the water and the list of chemicals in municipal water is huge!

What Really Divides Us? An Opportunity!

You may not know this, but I am a daughter of the American revolution. My family and ancestors fought for freedom, freedom of religion, freedom from taxation without representation and we fought for our right to express ourselves freely and be happy.  Abagail Adams was a Smith and Martha Washington’s sister married a Bassett. Both are my family names.

You might be wondering why  am I writing about this odd bit of personal history when I usually write about healing and transformational change.

First, I want to share that Pluto is in Capricorn, many of you may know this but did you know that the  last time Pluto was in Capricorn ( that rules government and business) was during the founding of this country and the American revolution.

Like now, there were  basically 2 distinct party lines of thought, one for a centralized government ( Hamilton and Adams)  and the other for more states rights (Jefferson & Madison). Then like now these forces pulled at each other in bitter and divisive infights that nearly destroyed our  fledgling democracy.

What is so frustrating for me is that we are doing it all over again. I realize that people are reactionary and in reactive states much of the time but we have a opportunity to change this. To move from reaction to response!

Decades ago, when I taught as a substitute teacher even my kindergarteners knew how to cooperate and get along better than the factionalized wings of  political groups we see expousing  their truth on talk shows and in the halls of government. Why all the hate when what we need is cooperation.

So let”s take this opportunity and say no to  extremes, to the tea party movement  (who I know that my ancestors would rolling in their graves  to hear this name used this way ) and to the factionalism that they preach and that is eroding any political goodwill and hope we once possessed.

We have an opportunity to move to another level, to a higher octave of this Pluto in Capricorn energy that is so relevant right now. We can rise above this kind of  divisive politics.

We must remember our commonality.

This commonality is key. We are all human beings, first. We all suffer and wish to be happy. This is what links us all  together!

We can all practice more openness and compassion and reach out our hands to one another in kindness instead of anger. I am not saying that we have to deny that we are mad as hell about what is going on in the world  but we have to at least try to soften our hearts and temper our anger with intelligence and open the conversation beyond the sound of our own voice.

This is where we have gone wrong I’m afraid…. we are not talking to each other we’re just flinging shit at each other, which accomplishes nothing. As the political season ramps up ask yourself , can I hold the and instead of the or in my heart? Can both positions exist simultaneously? My hope is yes . So the dialogue can begin not just sound bites ( that the masses latch onto ) but real discussion.

So I want everyone to take a deep breath, to move out of reaction and into a place of equanimity because if we don’t start matters will only get worse. I do not want to lose this precious democracy.

Let’s embrace our diversity and find a new path to move forward on. Please, please, please.

PS

Pluto in Capricorn will strip down and expose all forms of corruption and abuse of power. It is the nature of Pluto to illuminate the shadow and Pluto will be in Capricorn  that rules the sector of business, government, banking and finance. we have already seen this. And we have a choice and opportunity at this time. Government and politics will change during this process. We can move towards a new wholism like never before and heal this realm where there has been so much  tit for tat for way too long.  Pluto is fierce and it is relentless but it wants truth above all things.

Your Body Holds the Keys to Your Deepest Healing

Your body is your greatest asset. It is the home of your mind and your heart and it holds the capacity of using your intellect and your intuition in tandem to solve any problem you are facing.

Your body is a storehouse of Information, memories emotions and energy that have been generated since the moment you took birth. Every memory, every emotion is a part of you, stored within your body and the great thing is it’s all accessible.

Your body holds the key because that which you can not process or understand will automatically fall into the body.

This vast “body of experience ” can be the key to solving long-standing problems that repeat in your life and that just don’t go away no matter what you do. I developed a 5 step simple and direct set of practices that when applied can open the door to this warehouse of information – held just below the surface- literally!

Why is this important? Who cares?

Well, you should if you have been struggling with a relationship issue, physical symptoms, behaviors, emotions or beliefs that you fall into again and again and you just can’t get out. Kind of like a ocean wave that you get pulled into and you just spin around and around and can’t get out without effort and help.

When you repeat the same pattern again and again in your life you may be caught in a traumatic vortex. A traumatic vortex is very intense because you are gripped in the problem and can’t get out. It’s a place where you spin, and your mind goes over the same scenario again and again, maybe with different people or situations.

There is an inextricable feeling to this. Right? Like you will never be free. And the the worst of it is you won’t be free until you resolve the core issue. You will repeat the pattern, going over the same material because your body and mind are trying every way they can to figure it out, to complete the traumatic emotional experience in a way that lays it to rest.

And all you want to be is out of the spin cycle, out of pain and to move beyond the emotions you are feeling, right?

For 24 years, I have worked with clients in these situations where their life and emotions are out of balance and out of control and they feel like they are about to die. Funny thing is, something is dying— an old way of being is dropping away. A part of the self, that is aching for change, is ready to let go to release the trauma, and die—- in order to be reborn.

Memories, emotions and beliefs drive you each and every day. And the solutions to your chronic problems is right here, right now, right within you. You just have to be willing to dive in to see what is waiting for you- to see what your intellect and your intuition have to share with you.

Your body is your greatest asset and it will communicate with you. Your spirit communicates thru your body  and if you listen and look you will find answers and know in your heart what to do next. So if you want to get started and get to the bottom of your problems once and for all and make 180 degree shifts like never before then you are ripe for this deep wokt. You can begin today just call me and let’s get started. 415 435-8015

You Hold the Key !

YOU HOLD THE KEY to your deepest healing and empowerment…….

Memories and emotions are alive within you and they drive your behaviors, symptoms, beliefs and life experience more than you may realize. These unconscious patterns reawaken when you are in stress, trauma and pain and they limit you in countless ways.

Have you ever wondered: why am I here again? What is this about? I feel I know this person, how could that be? Why does this emotion always come up? How come I have this disease? How can I get out of this cycle? Why am I so tired?

If you have ever asked these types of probing questions and if you want to transform the very energy that is the source of your pain and suffering and move beyond your problems and find peace then you are a perfect match for this work.

Transforming Embodiment ® is a past life integrative therapy and chakra clearing process that allows you to find the emotional causes for your symptoms and to uproot them at their core. You are taught to use your own intuitive skills to discover the memories and emotions that are held within your cells, bones and tissues. I am your guide and act as a medium between your wisdom Self and energy of Source.

Your body, as embodied spirit and mind, carries all the answers and understanding that you require to release the burdens of your past from both this life and from past and parallel lives you have lived before.

I call this body your body of experience, which encompasses all the memories emotions, beliefs and experiences you have ever experienced since the incarnation of your individual consciousness. Your subtle body and physical body are included and each cell, chakra and organ holds a vast pantheon of info-energy that you can access.

In my 25 years as a healer,  I have learned thru direct experience with myself, clients and students that the most persistent and perplexing problems we face in this lifetime can be answered when we drop into our body of experience. By asking simple direct questions like: “ Where have I experienced this before, why is this theme or problem in my life, when or where was the first time I experienced this? ”,  memories will surface like bubbles from a mountain spring. Offering you insights and understanding directly from your body and spirit.

Together we can find answers and understanding and you can heal your core, your body and emotions. This is the treasure and empowerment of this work.

How to counter verbally abusive people

I was talking with a client the other day who was having an especially hard time with her verbally abusive and emotionally destructive boss. She expressed how upsetting it was to go to work and be immersed in a toxic workplace for 8 hrs a day. As she spoke I remembered something I learned years also in Hawai’i. What I learned was a quick and easy way to change a negatively charged memory or experience into a pleasant one. I know this is going to sound strange to some of you but try it the next time you are confronted with an angry or irate person.

Here is what you do, as the person is railing at you, imagine them in a clown suit, with a big nose, over-sized feet and see there lips flapping as they rant. Maybe even give them a tail, just make them as funny as you can imagine. What happens as you imagine the person this way is that you can’t help but to smile inwardly and maybe even giggle a bit to yourself.  What happens in your brain when you do this is that the memory or experience is stored differently, it moves to an area of your brain that hold pleasant images and memories and is no longer as traumatic as a result.

I did this once after a biting conversation with my mother -in- law that left me in tears. I went back and re-imagined the whole conversation and presto—- the energy and my reaction changed instantaneously—- just like that.  I felt better and was able to let it go which was a godsend.

My client used it right away and she just loved the clown she created in her mind’s eye of her abusive boss just Blah, Blah, Blahing at her. She said it really changed her entire experience.

Find Happiness, Love, Healing, Confidence & Release your Fears

Each of your charkas is a reservoir of information —spiritual energy, memories and emotions. Stored within each chakra are the answers and reasons why your life is how it is.

By awakening and shifting your attention you can perceive the stories and retrieve lost aspects of yourself that are just below the surface of your awareness.

Accessing these stories gives you the opportunity, often for the first time, to get to the bottom of the problems and challenges you face each day.

Whether you are working thru physical, emotional or relationship issues your charkas have the answers. The entire history of your consciousness can be found within your energy body. When you dip into this inner body of knowledge—empowerment happen. As you find your true self and deep lasting healing occurs!

For decades I have dove into my energy body, like a pearl diver, seeking answers and understanding and I have never failed to reap the benefits of this kind of inner exploration.

My clients for 20+ yrs have always been amazed at how such a simple and direct process can change everything.

Each of these men and women found answers, hidden within themselves. Understanding dawned, like the harvest moon and filled each person with light, so they could lo0k within and find their truth.

Each released their pain, sorrow, doubts, grief, betrayal, fears, anxiety and traumatic past.

Each of these men and women rediscovered themselves—as they peeled away layers that, like grime on a window, dimmed their inner light.

They came away happier, more relaxed, unafraid, more loving and gentler with themselves, confident self-assured and free from symptoms that plagued and confounded them.

Each in turn discovered the truth within their being and healed the heart of their being.

This is what I can offer you — self-discovery and healing that will transform you.

Lynn came to see me because she was experiencing a rapid and frightening heartbeat that felt as if her heart was going to jump out of her chest. She unearthed the past life memories that drove her heart to beat wildly in her chest. And she was able to resolve her congenital heart problem she had since birth. Her connection to the man she loved deepened as she relived a time when she had known him before. Intimacy and relief arose from our work together and replaced her self-doubt, pain and fear with love, confidence and healing.

Sara came to see me when she learned that the man she loved had been with another woman. This heartbreak opened the door to memories long forgotten both from the present and the past and deep healing as she worked thru the layers of betrayal that originated in England centuries ago. She was able forgive the man she loved and stay with him. Working thru the betrayal and pain of her past and present. She found love and trust both in herself and within her relationship and released, her fears, guilt, self- doubt and anger and found her true heart.

Sophia came to see me when she because of deep grief and unhappiness in her relationship. She discovered she could transform her doubts and self-hatred into self-acceptance and joy. And as a by-product found work she loves.

Anna came to see me when was unable to sleep and concentrate because of night terrors and dreams. She came to understand the past lives that were revolving in her nightmares and was finally able to put them to rest. Clarity and understanding blossomed as she released of her sense of being invisible and unseen in her life.

Jordan discovered why he and his ex-wife were always art odds, why he felt unappreciated, betrayed, incapable and sexually addicted. By releasing past life memories he regained his self–esteem, strength, and compassion for himself and the woman he had loved and had children with, enabling him to happily attend his daughter’s wedding.

Francesca finally understood her fear tall building, bridges and heights and worked through the layers of past life memories to restore and regain her ability to face her fears and not be afraid that she would die or that disaster would strike. Worry and fear receded. Deep peace, self-knowledge and a new sense of connection both in her community and to herself were what she found. And a balancing of her inner energies empowered her to be more herself – strong, discerning and confident.

These are just a few stories from 25 years of working in the field of energetic and  spiritual healing and past life integrative therapy. The past and present live within us and thru inner exploration of your charkas or energy centers we can find peace esteem happiness and love.
