I love you, but

Reflections on love and actions

Two years ago, after the death of my dad, I wrote this as I was pondering how we love others, or say we do, but our actions may not reflect love:

I love you, but

I love you, but I have to do XYZ to fulfill some need.
I love you, but you’ll never know everything about me.
I love you, but I don’t have the wherewithal to be considerate of what you may have to deal with when I’m gone.
I love you, but I’m busy.
I love you, but I don’t know what I can do to help you.
I love you, but I have my own life.
I love you, but I am still learning.
I love you, but I haven’t polished my crystal ball to know what you need.
I love you, but though I talk to everyone in the world and should know how to ease the process you will go through after I die, I don’t think I will die, so there’s no need to set everything up, pre-need funeral/cremation/burial, right of survivorship, etc. it can be done another day.
I love you, but I don’t live for you.
I love you, but as mad as you may get at me, you’ll learn your own lessons from this.
I love you, but this experience will cause you to consider your loved ones more.
Hugs and kisses!

In reflection

I shared this piece with friends on Facebook at the time, to meager response. And it wasn’t important to me how many saw it, liked, or loved it. My best friend from 4th grade (who always “gets me” responded and this is what I replied to her:

Thank you for “seeing” me. For “seeing” my process and intent through this post. I am happy to report that I was only angry for a very short while. The anger that is a part of grief. Mom and dad did the best they could with the information they understood at the time. 

So, yes, I was making notes of the thoughts that came as I proceeded to find the lesson for me in all of this. I can’t change what was done/not done, but I can sure set things up now for my kids, so they don’t have to pay out of pocket and go through probate, etc. when I leave this earth. 

Healing

It has been healing for me to separate my emotions from the actions that occurred by journaling the various things I learned through this so-called “death” process. 

You know, mostly there is only an earthly death. At least I believe it’s only the physical stuff that dies. Our love, soul, and spirit lives on. And that gives me hope and a way to see beyond all the mundane.

I want to add that I hope this helps someone because we don’t know what we don’t know. 

Funeral home arrangements, and why pre-need is important

Now, that was two years ago and it is time for me to follow through and setup my own pre-need natural burial arrangements. 

I never knew that funeral homes could charge you money to see your loved one after they take the body.

Yes, there are questions one should ask before allowing a funeral home to take a body.

In our case, my adult son found my dad, (he had passed away in his sleep), and while we were driving the 2.5 hours to get to where they lived, the sheriff deputies had already done their job and a funeral home had picked up my dad’s body. By the time we arrived at the funeral home, they said I would have to pay them $200 if I wanted to see my dad! That’s something people never tell you.

Also, it was the funeral home, not the sheriff’s office, who kept everything in a locker that they had taken out of my dad’s pockets (as apparently he had slept in his clothes and had loose cash in different pockets, not only in his wallet). And the funeral home didn’t offer to give me my dad’s personal possessions, nor was I of a mind to ask, when they were asking me for $200!

Had I known, I would have given them the $200 dad had on his person (which I had to go back and ask for two weeks later after someone suggested I ask). It’s just something that nags at me, like an open loop. I know I may not have wanted to see my dad’s body, my son told I wouldn’t, but I can’t help but feel if I had known what was in dad’s pockets, I would have paid the funeral home their “fee.”

Speaking of funeral homes, be prepared to pay something out of your own pocket for your family member, otherwise they will not even pick up the body. And most don’t offer ANY arrangements, not even cremation, (and not including any viewing or service), for less than $2,000 (in the USA).

Let me know in the comments if you want to know more like this and I’ll write another article. I don’t want to be morbid.

From Goosebumps to GodBumps

From Goosebumps to GodBumps

Have you ever had the experience of talking with someone about something very deep or important to them and got goosebumps or chills?

This book, GodBumps: Connecting to the Spiritual World through the Five Senses – Buy here: https://amzn.to/3u9by6X explores that mystery and explains how I went from only randomly experiencing that phenomenon to living from a place of open-hearted, heart-expansive life where I have the blissful pleasure of feeling my GodBumps (term for that INTERNAL body tingling, bubbly, effervescensing sensation) everyday!

Organizing force = God

It’s only a theory, but I believe the organizing force, or Power for GodBumps, is God. Pretty straightforward, right? But, even if this sensation occurs for some other reason, I’m still good with crediting God (or as I prefer to say, Omniscience), for blessing me with such a beautiful feeling and mystery.

Can more than one Religion explain this?

Moving through multiple ways: Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, and Shamanism – which one best explains GodBumps?

Spirituality and Science now, overlap.

One religion isn’t big enough to cover GOD!
I get it. ❤️🦋🌀I once told a Christian lady that God is ENERGY and she vehemently disagreed. I ended the discussion with this, “holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof. From these also turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:5

BEing in Alignment

‪#1-What does “alignment” mean to you?‬

#2-How does it feel, or how do you know?

#3-How long does the feeling last?

#4-When does it occur?

#5-Is there any result?

How does it FEEL?

For me, when I answer the questions above, I get:

#1 reality matches soul

#2 Godbumps

#3 A few seconds and is the best feeling

#4 when talking with others about deep topics, God, Spirit, visions, dreams, raw foods, or subjects that hold a sense of deep meaning for them (and I validate that for them as their truth)

#5 usually means the person involved and I have a soul tie

When I am in alignment I FEEL the Godbumps! The physical resonance of ALL that is—IN my body! Yes!! ❤️🦋🌀〰️

If you gravitate to things that give you GodBumps ((resonance with your soul)), you are my tribe.

Dharma

I’m paraphrasing from what I have learned:

  1. Your dharma = your nature, or essence.
  2. You feel happy the more you act from your essence.
  3. Act or flow from your deepest thoughts and feelings (as this honors your soul).
  4. Know your truth. It won’t align with ignorance, habits, desires, delusion, egoism, or attachments.
  5. You aren’t in alignment with your essential nature (personal dharma), if your life is in chaos.
  6. Follow your gut, intuition, and instincts making use of your God given gifts.
  7. Your dharma determines the direction of your life. It is truly the Tao, the Way. When you follow it, the power will propel you and your life will flow.

Dharma is not just about religion. Dharma is about you, your life, actions, character, natural talents and abilities. You are the sum of your Dharma.

What LIGHTS me up? Divine Flame

What is it that lights me up? What’s the Divine Flame?

My purpose is what lights me up.

I sit and look at my PEACE board that I drew for my Integrated Spiral™ program. And what I see, what I know is that I AbSOULutely love to talk and share from my Soul about holistic health, healing, transformation, and of course, Omniscience God and Spirit! ❤️🦋🌀

Per my body graph:When I feel resistance, or frustrated, it is because I made a decision by mental reasoning. My strategy is to respond until I feel satisfied. Unless I am a subtype of Manifestor, my job was never to be the Peacemaker I felt forced to be.

Yesterday, I let go…

Divine Flame

I let go of a 3 year friendship and wellness community (of which I had been a vocal and very visible part of—both on social media and blogging). Done.

Pain pushes until vision pulls.

I walked barefoot in the hot Florida sand.

I cried cleansing tears for less than 5 minutes.

My grief turned to compassion easily. —That’s because I do my Byron Katie “turnarounds.” And “go general” as Abraham-Hicks say. I am very adept at finding my next better feeling thought.

I worked my program of Spiral mechanics on my feelings. —I go deep to rise above, remembering what I have learned from my teachers (Dispenza, Lipton, Hof, Beckwith, Sadhguru, Lama Nicholas, Terrence McKenna, etc) so I can integrate and embody MORE.

What happened? WHY end a friendship?

NO ONE seems suspicious of the mainstream narrative. And while I am not necessarily suspicious, I do question and push back when I feel the need to take care of myself. I still Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life! Yes, I do! I read my own book over and over to remind mySelf.

Until now, for most of my life of 59 years, I have been a peacemaker. I would most naturally choose to back down from a confrontation.

But I am becoming more discerning.

I used to walk away from a fight because when one walks away, the fight ends. I learned that from the years I watched my parents argue, yell, and bicker. It’s the path of least resistance for me. Call it a coping skill. Whatever. It worked for me. It allowed me to give myself compassion. To love mySelf.

So, I don’t judge mySelf for that.

Yes, I have burned bridges in the past. It was necessary and I have no regrets. It kept me “safe.” Whatever that really means.

But NOW?

Now, I want to stand my sacred ground.

I don’t want to back down.

My Irish ire is up. Haha!

I have grown a backbone.

I know I’m a good person. But it’s more than that, (and because I know we are Energy beings, and that it’s ALL ENERGY), I am a multidimensional WHOLE person, who is worthy of being heard, at least, if not respected or honored. Those are all just labels anyway.

Yes, I am worthy to BE HERE NOW. Bless it!

I love to listen to Russell Brand, Brian Rose, Dr Joe Dispenza, Sadhguru and those leaders who can look and value ALL perspectives.

I teach Integrated Spiral™ courses because they have grown me into WHOLENESS!

🌱 Growing & F-L-O-W-I-N-G (Everything Resolves to Gratitude)

☯️ Kaleidoscope: Finding value in Everything, Interconnectedness (We Are All Connected)

Yesterday. I was triggered by certain personal messages and responses, that differed from past conversations on the particular triggering topic, which I totally had not expected. Yep, I was blind-sided.

In the online community, of which we are both a part of many are supportive of each other. And I was often told what a wonderful person I was when introductions were made. We were supposed to be uplifting, inclusive, spreading love & light, ETC.

Well, I’m apparently not so wonderful anymore! Make one perceived misstep and it’s judgment city! Ha!

I simply brought an issue to light that a simple, “okay” would have been all the communication I needed. If that had happened, everyone would have easily moved on with their day. But, noooo!

Thus today, I witness the power of the Divine Flame 🔥 to burn away what isn’t necessary in my life and clear another path forward. We’re off to see the wizard, as the song says! ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🔥🙏☯️

Themes that runs through my life

  • Airwaves
  • Connection
  • CB Radio
  • Voice (Human Design speaks to this too, i.e. Throat – useful in getting attention)
  • Tone
  • Singing
  • Ego / Not being heard/acknowledged. My Spirit knows it doesn’t really matter. And that what does matter is ALIGNMENT
  • Healing: colitis/asthma all seeking peace from stress, hostility, fear, self preservation because I felt suffocated
  • Loved church (learning about God)
  • Loved chiropractic and how good it made my body feel, breathe easier
  • Loved to play not fight – why did others break my toys?
  • Loved the little old family cemetery—though little scary that was behind our neighbors house
  • Loved horses, cats, dogs
  • Loved driving, riding motorbikes
  • Deep thinker from talking more with adults than children when I was growing up
  • Loved to go down the street (escape home)*
  • Loved to play on the tracks / golf course, both opposite ends of my street*

*Wrote about this in First Friends

My Mission is unfolding

I’m noticing that a person’s mission can be different throughout life. I desire my mission to fulfill my purpose.

How?

Perhaps by doing all of the following:

  • Blogging
  • Writing books
  • Creating courses
  • Public speaking
  • Vlogging
  • Podcasting
  • Singing
  • Emceeing events

What’s a crazy thing I could do?

Put on a huge event showcasing ENERGY (Resonance Academy types, solar and off grid types, original music / songwriters, hand crafting artisans, storytellers, alchemists, holistic wellness practitioners, yogis, etc.)

What’s in my way?

What actions am I not taking?
What are my excuses?
What’s the real reason, belief that is holding me back?

Fear of Failure Fear of Success (I’ll have to quit my job, and my struggle is hugely tied to my education and career)

Fear of being told to “just get over yourself” (which I’ve already heard twice since starting to share my unapologetic truths), so guess I should just go BIG

Fear I don’t have a thick enough skin (because I’m so raw, empath)

Too old and not have enough energy

Fear of uncontrolled outcomes (like shock of spider, snake appearing on me)I can’t handle it (At the bottom of every fear)

Fear of upsetting those I love or who love me

What are the turnarounds?

Now, to TURN those around.

I have been successful in life.

I have failed, been scared, and risen from the ashes!

I have survived much worse than somebody’s judgement

I am continually growing my skin and participate in Empath Evolution and Women’s Soul Journey.

I’m wise and age is just a number. Look at all those older than me doing amazing things!

I don’t have to know how to handle every shocking event! Yet, I can handle it.

I will manage it (step by step).

We’re meant to do hard things.

Being unapologetic is freeing.

Who DO I think I am?

Look at what your ancestors struggled through to bring YOU into the world!! I acknowledge my ancestors DAILY

Don’t keep writing your future from your past. Write about the feelings of it, and then the details.

Lesson to grandchildren: I am
Let go of limiting beliefs Know power, strengths, Fears.

Who implanted these fears in me?

Stop fixing it – pop the DOING “bubbles“

Don’t sweat the small stuff

You and I are worthy

What’s bugging me?

Do something about it

Hang out with positive people!

Hang out with children

Hang out with older people

Ask them what they think, and listen! ❤️🦋🌀😘

What’s your vision?

Your core message to the world lights you up!

Transformation-hope-don’t give up

What do you think is stopping you?

Keynotes are different than aspiring free talks

What’s my vision?

My transferrable skills, credentials, spill over to this arena because I am a detective, scientist, tester, credible.

The vision of my future that fits in a picture frame.

Before accepting new commitments, look at my board and see if new opportunities align!!! Big one!! Especially after yesterday 6/14/21

What are my business commitments?

  • JOB (M-F 8am-4pm eastern)
  • Integrated Spiral: self-coaching program

Everything Resolves to Gratitude

Everything Resolves to Gratitude

This philosophy or mantra came to me after my dad’s passing in March of 2019. I can’t tell you exactly how to come around to this thought, especially during times of anger, upset, or grief. But, I can tell you that’s what I received in a KNOWING kind of way.

Everything Resolves to Gratitude

I’ve said these words to people many times. And I’ve written them. I even created a t-shirt with these words on it! I get sideways head glances when I wear it grocery shopping, especially during these COVID times, yet few smile. Perhaps it’s too big of a concept. 🤷🏼 But, I love teaching large and complex topics: like we’re part of God, like different leaves on a tree.

We are all part of the one living garment of God.

I’ve been shown that WE are all part of the one living garment of God. That is why there is no value in judging one another.

Years ago, I watched Russell Brand eloquently talk about how The Christ in confused people is calling out to be saved. He said he loved the elegant simplicity of the Dao (Lao Tzo), the charming voluptuousness of the Vedias, the passion of Catholisicm, and the potency of Islam. For me, The Chosen series about the life and times of Jesus the Christ, and his “‘chosen” disciples enhance the knowledge I have of Christianity and Mormonism.

Brand knows that, “We Are All One.” And Russell admonished us to not be confused by our own conflict or our own biological drives…to simply breathe… Take a moment to strengthen the awareness behind our fear, our desire. Being a recovering addict, he knows a thing or too about desires. He suggested that all of our lives change when we reach that Awareness and that this KNOWING transmits and connects… to each other and to something bigger than ourselves.

Indoctrination and Programming

We all tend to define the world according to the indoctrination and programming we’ve received from the PUBLIC EDUCATION system. And I, along with many others, are now questioning the ideologies behind this “education.” This is why I love continuing education.

I have taken so many courses from thought leaders, Energy Medicine doctors, ministers, life coaches, founders of the Reflexology school in St. Petersburg, FL, raw vegan chefs, Reiki masters, and nurses (like Healing Touch, taken years ago at the cancer hospital in Orlando, FL) and the list goes on and on (see the list on my homepage if you’re very curious). And I live with a genius husband.

Yet, nature and my own body continue to be my most thorough teachers.

You are a fractal of Omniscience

For years I have told you that you are a fractal of Omniscience. Now, I can tell you that your Ego, your individual personality, gifts, and skills is a temporary expression of a much larger YOU – comprised of Spirit, Soul, Mind (Infinite and Unified Field), and Body (that’s made up on 70-100 TRILLION cells, most of which, are not human–they are viruses, bacteria, fungi, and more!

If we had different eyes, ears, skin, indeed more complex senses, we would SEE the infinite vibrations (energies and frequencies) bleeding, leaking, blending, and glowing in a vast and ever-expanding, chaos of tangles in some constant, whir of interconnected fractals. And that what you currently have faith in, is just the structure you’ve been taught to follow. We may never have the knowledge of who and what created ALL (including us), but we don’t really need to if we ACT upon the guidance we’ve received and exercise our FAITH–yes, LIVING what we believe.

How you might “get there”

I deeply appreciate the many blessings in my life, especially:

  • exciting work that I am well paid for
  • beautiful granddaughters (and love of my whole family)
  • increased awareness of how We really Are All Connected everyday, all the time
  • that I Am really so fully saved – feeling the ever increasing awareness of what that actually means!
  • this tactic of writing an “A list idea – of 5 things I appreciate” list!

And another suggestion:

Om karuna swaha

This is a daily meditation / chant for the God of compassion.

Wayne Dyer said, this something (power or force) that grows our fingernails – we cannot stop. And that is true, even after the death of our body, our fingernails keep growing.

My thought: everything in the universe vibrates. I tweeted it. Is it documented in Physics? Yes! Read Niels Bohr.

Having trouble loving someone? Seeing them as God sees them?
Remember what Jerry once told Esther, when Esther had gotten mad at him. Pretend she is their granddaughter. Because Esther could never not love their grandchild – no matter how much of a mess she made, etc. Her love is unconditional for her!

Keys

I am going through some Energy shift since facilitating a TWO hour call in my club: Integrated Spiral this past Saturday night. I spent all day yesterday watching videos of spiritual masters (that had been shared with me), and I boiled my philosophy down even further.

To be IN SPIRIT is to be OUT of one’s mind. All the intellect in the world is no good if we are not LIVING our beliefs. Compassion and Love are keys—for ourselves and others. Yes, ALL others without judgment.
Breathe. 💨
Water. Even a splash will work.❤️💦 Earth. Hands to floor. Bare feet in sand. Garden.

3 keys: Breathe. Water. Earth.

And then, or all throughout those actions: Observe.

Live while you’re living, as I wrote in this song: https://www.n1m.com/richardmurrey/song/1009302-first-friends

I was introduced to Japji (not one but many videos on YouTube), and I am swimming in the enormous Energy of this.

Would you attend a 15 minute room in Clubhouse called, Breathing in Spirit? It will be a “check-in” kind of experience. Consistent practice I find, and this was reiterated to me Saturday night, is key. Because when we are upset for any reason, our breath can balance us (our emotions and body chemistry).

Awareness hidden in your WORDS

OM is hidden in many everyday words like cOMe, hOMe, sOMe, wOMan, and tOMb. 
And bOMb would be using this power as an opposing force.Do you really want to go there?

Why don’t we choose the positive path?

Choose to feel aWEsOMe!
OM is also found in OMniscient, OMnipresence, and Omnipotent. All the attributes of God.

Choose LOVE

Looking through the lens of Love can be easy or difficult, depending upon how you’ve been conditioned to this point in your life. Sometimes, simply being aware and asking yourSelf when issues arise, “Am I feeling restricted or open to this new information?” and sitting with the answer that comes to you. The answer can show you if you are looking at the issue, conversation, person, or such through the eyes of Love, or not.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. ❤️🦋🌀🎼〰️🙏☯️🌅💦🌱🌳🌴🌲

If you want to feel good, don’t read this!

If you want to feel good, don’t read this!

Well, sort of. I mean, I can do click bait too, right?

Here’s some feeling good Aha moments that came to me after performing in a “Breakthrough” transformational performance program a few years ago:

  • Don’t ever believe it when someone tells you to “get off your high horse”!
  • I CAN “get on my high horse”!! Ha!!
  • I don’t have to lose my “humble and giving” nature to be all I can be!
  • I know what is good for me!
  • I am worthy!
  • I am loved!
  • I don’t have to hide the real me from anyone.
  • I learned a quick standing method to clear my chakras and I use it every day! Thanks Tess!
  • I still love and take care of my family and friends. I do not have to put “others first.”
  • I am never to old to have fun!
  • I don’t have to have a perfect body to be a singer/performer (Adele, Oprah, Chaka Kahn, several others were curvy ladies, yet still did what they love!)
  • I love the song we all sang together called, “Free to be me” which later in the year, during my Sedona trip, our group of 15 ladies sang!!! 

Karma

Watching karma happen to people who betrayed or hurt you.

Sometimes that feels good huh?

Karma. What comes around, goes around.

Watching someone get what’s coming to them, somehow justifies the truth you felt about them when they were acting (for a day, week, month, or year) like an a$$h0le. Yes? No? Haha!

Well, hear this.

As you justify yourself about that person or specific situation, you are MISSING something right NOW! A moment of relaxation. The pleasant blow of the warm breeze that’s just the perfect temperature for you. A person walking by whom you could have spoken to (that you will never have that unique opportunity again). A kiss from your loved one (who will not always be there).

So, be aware.

Aware more and more.

Awake and aware to all kinds of pleasing potentiality in your moments. The moments that life shows you, presents to you, all kinds of opportunities to be happy, or opportunities to be pissed off.It is YOUR choice, which way you want to feel. Every. Single. Day.

Know that each person or situation to appears to cause you pain or conflict, is in your experience to teach you something. When you analytically search for the source of pain in your body you will not find any independent inherent existance of it. Difficulties are a dillusion. Pain is not solid or real. It is like a mirage in the desert.

A benefit of knowing that We Are All Connected (really see the interrelatedness of all) is that we can release our mind of anger.

Here are some example scenarios:

Karma #1

A certain particular person I knew years ago, lost her job. When a friend told me, I felt ecstatic! Why?

I usually don’t feel good about another’s misfortune. I went back through my notes and found the reason. This person had been a stumbling block in my career–but, there’s no point in digging back into the details or the Energy of it now.

Thankfully, my career rebounded, and as readers of my book know, I took it upon myself to get well by natural means–and since 2005, have been able to travel as much as I want. Ha!

Karma #2

A guy that dumped me years ago, (after a relatively short relationship) told a friend of mine, that his wife is crazy. (I don’t know why my friend felt the need to share this with me, but I’m using it as an example.) This “man” is upset because his wife doesn’t want to have children and apparently, he married her in order to HAVE children. Oh my! People DO change their minds, after all. Things like this happen all the time.

So, did he have a relationship with me (years ago) because he couldn’t be with my friend back then? Or, is he feeding my friend a “line” to lure her into an affair? Perhaps, he’s simply an a$$h0le?

What comes around, goes around.

I realize it sounds like I’m jealous. But, I’m not. (I am so NOT a jealous person.) Yet, I feel sad for my friend and hope she sees through this guy– Then again, it’s HER life!! And NONE of this is any of MY business anyway.

In fact, everything I lived in the past has brought me to the place that I’m at NOW, with so much awareness, and appreciation, and awe that ALL has turned out the way it has. And that my life, now, is GRAND! In fact, from my vantage point today, I’d say that I am living my BEST LIFE!

I am the evidence of my well being.

When I feel great, resonating with and IN all that the Universe is providing, in that moment, it’s AMAZING! However, some others shrink back from it. Why? Why must some shrink to feel comfortable around others? Or why must others need to feel important to make others feel less? It’s an interesting conundrum, but one that I believe is answered in the yin and yang of it ALL.

Do you “get” why things are changing?

Think about the 1960s.

I am a child of the sixties. Born in the very early sixties, I remember watching president John F. Kennedy’s funeral procession (probably from the many replays).

The first transatlantic satellite transmission occured during the year I was born, so is it any wonder I believe We Are All Connected?

I remember the hellish Vietnam war and how many people seemed to snub their noses toward the courageous troops when they returned home to the U.S.A.

I grew up as an only child during a time when television was young and exciting, and could often be used as a co-parenting device. Big stereos, stuffed toy transistor radios, and Citizen Band (CB) radios were fairly common and certainly found in our household–as I’ve written about before, my dad ran an electronics business on the side for many years.

Dad could “talk skip” with people across the ocean on a clear late night. And that would always fascinate me. I would fall asleep listening to the ping from his Browning Golden Eagle and Linear and the jokes of Johnny Carson.

I would dream of where electricity came from! I would follow the wires as we drove somewhere and then ask my mom (who was dumbfounded) that her 6 year old would ask such thought provoking questions! Then again, she knew I was smart.

It’s really very simple, people in pain cause other people pain. You can only then resolve to suffer with your pain or resolve to do whatever it takes to relieve your pain. Setting boundaries work for me, and believe me, I’m much better at setting boundaries, now.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Do you have a long or short Bio?

Have you ever sat down to write your bio or resume and listed out all of the things you do, and come up with a really long list?

And then whatever app you’re plopping these “titles” into, makes you shorten your list?

Isn’t that frustrating?

Do you then think thoughts like: “I do too much” – OR – “this stupid app”

I have titles listed for myself that relate to job titles, or side businesses, hobbies, or things I do once a year or seasonally, but that I want to “grow into” or do more often.

I say, I AM this or that. Yes, I AM [whatever]. And my brain kicks in with such thoughts of “No, I’m not” or “Who do I think I am?”

Are we hard-wired to question ourselves? Hmm

Here’s my bio list of titles as an example:

I am a wife, mother, grandmother, Sr Applications Analyst, Business Analyst, Functional Analyst, Technical Writer, Author, Blogger, Administrator of multiple WordPress websites, Connector, Digital Creator, Graphics Designer, Holistic Health and Wellness Researcher, Festival Emcee, Singer, Songwriter (married to a Guitarist Bassist Songwriter who’s written over 400 original songs) and Consciousness Co-creator aligning with soul-connected and soul-aligned individuals to raise the vibration of the planet! Whew!

That’s a LOT, right? I know I kinda feel tired reading that whole list. But I don’t do all of those things everyday–except for the first one–Wife.

I look at the list and move the roles around based on what I focus on and spend the most time on. And I acknowledge some of those roles are previous roles–not things I am currently DOING today.

How about you?

Are you excited?

Are you passionate about your roles?

Are there any roles you’d love to work in or with and are putting it off for some reason?

Perhaps, you could step into the role part-time?

Perhaps, WE can co-create together? I Am excited for YOU! And I am ready to help!

Let’s get it started, yeah!

Speakers and Presenters: Grand Tips!

Grand tips for Speakers and Presenters

I have been speaking (and singing) in front of (and for) large groups ever since I can remember: in church settings, elementary school (putting on plays), college, social clubs, flea markets (selling products), networking events, yoga and music festivals (as emcee), and health fairs. I am no stranger to the stage. But, we can all refine and polish our public speaking and presentation skills, I am no exception.

I read an article today that prompted me to make a list of my tips, based on my experiences:

Before you speak

  • Know your subject well, yes do your research
  • Be able to defend or argue your story from multiple perspectives
  • Write down your speech and remove any filler words or phrases
  • Practice your speech in front of a mirror
  • When tempted to use, “you know,” “uhm,” or such just BREATHE (this space is necessary to slow your speaking rate down, as well as give the audience time to rest, make notes, and such)
  • Practice your speech in front of one or two people and ask for their feedback on how to improve it
Grand tips for speakers and presenters

Day of your speech

  • Meditate and expand your Energy out to ALL
  • Greet attendees or meet as many people at the event as possible, shake hands, fist bump, kiss babies, etc. (okay, maybe not kiss babies post-COVID times, but you get the idea)
  • Ease any jitters or “butterflies” using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ), or such (even humming to yourself works)
  • Once on stage, tune into your heart center and share your story from “that place”—from your soul
  • Look at some audience members from different sections of the room
  • Make eye contact with friendly “light” faces
  • Provide VALUE— never tell a story that doesn’t make a point (Thank you, Les Brown)
  • Involve your audience, ask “Have you ever…” or “Has this ever happened to you?”
  • Smile and laugh genuinely, when it fits
  • If you ever feel nervous, off track, forget what’s next, or self conscious, be quiet for a moment and breathe, focus and speak from your soul, not your ego
  • Add color and depth to your personal stories, but don’t drone on, complain, or get caught up in negativity
  • People want to hear what you learned and how you grew from overcoming adversity
  • Don’t assume you know your audience—now, on Clubhouse, you probably won’t know them at all, and people are quite multifaceted these days
  • At the end of your lecture, bow and authentically with humility thank your audience for hearing you—they gave YOU moments of their lives

No matter which path you follow, stay Connected

No matter the path, stay Connected

Meditate on these words. Let me know what changes for you in a week. I love reading your comments!

The Nine Noble Virtues
Honor your elders (statue of Native American elders)
Diurnal cycle
Jesus in the center
Always consider Perspective
Mandala drawing
Walk a mile in another’s moccasins
Consider the relics
Completed Mandala – We Are All Connected
The healer in me, honors the healer in you. Medicine wheel; Sedona AZ
Be creative. Give back to nature.
ALL paths are merely suggestions.
Symbols remind and instruct us.
To ground us. To guide us.
Even about how to heal ourselves.
And learn new ways. An Iris is miraculous.
Activate your DNA daily. Feel the Godbumps (like goose bumps, but deeper).
Share your soul with others.
About your soul family.
And if you feel hurt… forgive yourself and your others.
Your vibration is ALWAYS key.
Connect with a tree. Even through a window.
And remember, even the most spiritual have to buy food, and take out the trash. Namaste.
Hold hands. Whenever you get the chance.

Tips for staying Connected

  • Walk outside
  • Smile at someone (even if you have to fake it)
  • Say something to someone
  • Write someone a note
  • Hug someone
  • Hold someone’s hand
  • Help someone
  • Chat online
  • Bridge the age (frequency) gap
  • Join a group (yes, even a networking group)
  • Open your home to someone
  • Take a class
  • Grow something
  • Give something away
  • And if you burn something, send your kisses with it in the smoke

Integration Diet: 4 weeks into the 7 week Herbal Detox

7 Week Herbal Detox with KP Khalsa

4 weeks into my herbal detox

So, I’m 4 weeks into this 7 week TEST OF WILL, yes, that’s exactly what this is… and I can tell you, I’ve never been so pleased to eat a few almonds, and basmati rice with Ghee!!!

Read why here.

I am loving all the herbs on this detox, except Triphala. I hate Triphala with a great hate! Hahahaha! Just kidding. Well, no, actually I’m not kidding. But I have know-ticed that it is getting easier to suck it down. That is until I worked my way up to taking 8 grams. Then it sucked again. But the results have been amazing!

Basmati rice, arugula, spinach, parsley, celery, and Swiss chard. Splash of coconut aminos too.

My digestive system is really working well. I could set my watch by my morning poop. Ha! But I don’t wear a watch. I have an iPhone. 🤣

And I’ve released about 14 pounds in 4 weeks, which is extremely encouraging! I lost 16 pounds prior to the start of this detox, for a total of 30. And I’m thrilled! I have more to release, so I’ll probably extend my detox and modify the diet a bit (because it is getting boring not eating salt, dairy, eggs, beef, chocolate, sugar, nutritional yeast, protein bars, peanut butter, berries, smoothies, creole spices, tequila and wine). I’ll take it easy though, and consume those sparingly, now that I know I can live without them. ❤️😉

Also, be sure to watch The Trees movie on their site. I shared a link to it on my Facebook group too: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1538675939756303/?

Be well, everyone.

Integration Diet: The Sacred Science 7 Week Herbal Detox

The Sacred Science 7 Week Herbal Detox with KP Khalsa

I don’t normally celebrate Lent, but I happen to be on a 7-week herbal detox through The Sacred Science with KP Khalsa, and it has us eating bland for 7 weeks and taking different herbs each week to cleanse a specific body system. Thus, I have given up wine, chocolate, butter, cheese (all dairy), nuts, even the raw salads that I love!

7 Week Herbal Detox with KP Khalsa

For 7 weeks, I am only eating prescribed veggies (that change each week), without seasoning or salt, along with some grains and legumes (I chose basmati rice and lentils of the list of gluten-free grains and legumes the diet allows). It is strict, but I am feeling so much better! And I am learning a lot about these herbs, about which, “coincidentally,” I had been wanting to learn!

By eating blandly, the body’s digestive system can rest and focus on the healing and restorative properties of the herbs.

It is challenging my mind and body. Easing out old habits. And showing me another side of my Ego—that which is driven by my taste buds!

Cooked carrots, rutabaga, and artichoke on top of kitchari: basmati rice and lentils (no spices, no butter, no condiments)
