Patting myself on the back

My biggest takeaway from 2021, was to give myself a physical pat on the back for accomplishing sooo much—though I had multiple obstacles and challenges.

Think patting yourself on the back for your accomplishments is bad? That could be a limiting belief.

If you don’t pat yourself on the back, it’s doubtful that anyone else will.

Patting yourself on the back is NOT arrogant or egotistical! You work hard. You are studious. Resilient. And you’re flexible. Adaptable. Look yourself in the eyes (in a mirror) and SMILE!

My husband has this saying, “He who tooteth not his own horn, the same shall not be tooted”! Haha! What do you think of that?

Plan for success

I keep a variety of notes around me, from little sticky notes, to journals, to poster drawings of my spiral method, to notes and research on my laptop and in my iPhone.

“The spiral of energy is akin to layers of an onion. And each layer of that onion, using reductionist thinking, could be sold as truth—as the only part of the onion that exists.”
Sheila “Spiral Sister” Murrey

When inspiration comes, I jot it down and sometimes I post these on Facebook or Instagram. The ones that really resonate with me, I put on a shirt, mug, or such:

The Presence of God is EVERYWHERE ❤️🦋🌀〰️
Most people have had God’s unconditional love, conditioned right out of them.

Create success

To create my success, I set my sights on accomplishing the my top 5 goals by believing in myself, my brain and body, and in my voice. My daily practices include:

  • Gratitude Flow (IntegratedSpiral.com)
  • Meditation
  • Singing (to feel good)
  • Moving (to burn cortisol), Qigong / Yoga, Dancing
  • Acupressure
  • Doing Energy work: EFT Tapping, Eden Method, etc.
  • Writing

To elaborate

Dancing adds JOY into each day and helps me burn calories.

My Integrated Spiral™ Gratitude F-L-O-W keeps me grounded and in touch with my ancestors and relations in the Grand Beyond. Yes, We Are All Connected. 💙🦋🌀〰️

Meeting with Clubhouse groups (keeps my mindset UP).

Staying in touch with family and friends keeps me accountable (and strengthens my integrity.

Tracking my steps, weighing in, and measuring my body weekly, helps me stay focused on my health.

Posting something everyday on social media builds my following. I love sharing my perspective on reality in hopes that it uplifts others (and their businesses), though I acknowledge “shadow” too, because I believe in yin and yang, and balance. ☯️

With a little help from my friends

Take It Upon Yourself and strengthen the unseen “fabric” that connects us ALL.

I’ve been thrilled to sit in circle with Patti Stevens. And be a part of her Women’s Soul Journey group on Facebook. I met Patti on a yoga cruise in January of 2020, and had an instant soul Connection with her.

Shout out to Robin Quinn Keehn!

Robin runs her own business called, Quitting Culture and has been one of my cheerleaders throughout 2020 and 2021. She’s super confident and full of integrity! I highly recommend her if you’re just starting out in business.

As well, Marilen Crump runs the Phenomenal Female Business Network and has been running business masterminds groups for women for many years. I’m in a couple of her groups and I have actually partnered with fantastic entrepreneurs via these groups! My tip: When networking online (especially in Facebook groups), simply be your helpful self and you’ll attract your authentic tribe who wants to work with you. ❤️😉

Queen Kimmie Tyson is another one of my cheerleaders who runs a thriving business and podcast with her musical husband, Shawn7. Queen Kimmie got me into Clubhouse and I have made incredible friends with several through sharing unscripted there from the depths of my soul. Connect with me there by searching my name or “Spiral Sister” to join our calls.

I’m telling you, it’s so encouraging and motivating to have a group of fantastic business mentors on your side.

My TOP 5 goals for 2021 were:

  1. Integration of my Spirit and Soul into ALL I am and do DAILY, to help me stay balanced and Connected
  2. Take Joy in running Integrated Spiral (a transformational, small group, self-coaching DE-program)
  3. Close open loops within the week and celebrate to reinforce that habit
  4. Market our music while promoting others (as I have been doing on N1M)
  5. Continue writing (metaphysical novel in progress), created a course on Communing with TREES, blogging, creating t-shirt designs and more, and generating ideas for a Vlog or podcast

Forward progress is continuing.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. ❤️🦋🌀🎼☯️🙏☮️

Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)

Do you seem to feel emotion more than other people you know?

Is it in your nature to cry easily?

Is it in your nature to feel overwhelmed often?

Do you find yourself pulled into other people’s drama?

Do you harbor hidden resentment that you seem to have to struggle in life more than those around you?

Do you get irritated often?

Do you care about others more than you care about yourself? (Such as a care giver, codependent, or enabler.)

Do you care more about others than they seem to care about themselves? (Such as loving someone who seems hell bent on self destruction.)

You may be a highly sensitive person, or an empath.

Throughout my life, I have been one to “take things personally.” I’ve learned I do that because I am a highly sensitive person (HSP) and an old soul!

Empaths tend to feel others pain, frustration, or negativity. Empaths often sense things deeply.

Do you find it difficult to set boundaries? Or stay strong in the midst of your so carefully constructed boundaries being trampled?

Why is it that when a Giver decides it is time to TAKE (or simply be bold and stand up for themselves), that a Taker gets mad?

My friend, Michelle Howe, runs a group called Empath Evolution, where we look at many of these topics, and grow together.

Connect with those of this encouraging and empowering Empath Evolution here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/empathevolution/?ref=share

Empaths can build their resiliency. Growth and progress is possible. ❤️🦋🌀〰️🔥🙏☯️

When a Giver takes, why does a Taker get mad?

Reach out. Many of us have been where you are in your growth progress. We can help each other.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Faeries

One weekend in 2017, a friend and I attended a Fairy Faire at Spirit University in Sarasota, Florida. I’m drawn to the unusual, yet I had never gone to an event quite like this before.

Spirit University held the event both inside their building and outside, with a roped off area. Inside, there were about 12 psychics offering readings. And outside, there were two food trucks, and about 10 vendors selling various things. It was a spritely time. 🧚‍♀️

There were only 3 musicians playing music throughout the day outside.

Their emcee introduced a variety of speakers. Each speaker talked for 15-20 minutes on spiritual topics. A friend, John Springer, spoke about the faerie realm and passed around photo albums of the many pictures he had taken of the places where faeries might live, in the woodlands and forests. I was enthralled!

It was $3 to get in the door and they put a paper wrist band on us so we could go in/out of the building. Readings were done upstairs, just the way they used to do it at another venue I’d attended in the past.

My mother had recently passed and I had hoped to hear something reassuring from her. But I didn’t set any particular expectations.

What happened next, quickened my heartbeat and stunned me to my core.

Just as I sat down with my reader to begin the reading, I could hear a distinct change in the music that was wafting in from outside. It was Celtic music! This went on during the whole time of my reading!

By the time we’d finished and I made my way back downstairs and outside, the Celtic music had stopped. It was sooo surreal.

I don’t remember a lot of the words from the reading (though I did record it). I did Connect with the reader and felt she was “onto something.” But I will never forget the Feeling of Presence. Perhaps it was my mom directing the Irish music, or my ancestors. I don’t know, nor does it matter. What matters most, is that I felt totally supported.

Everything I learned from attending this Fairy Faire, influenced what would come next in my life, such as my decision to go on a Sacred Celtic Journey. As well, the knowingness I gleaned continues to inform the work that I do within the transformative program of: Integrated Spiral™

John Springer crossed over to the Grand Beyond recently, and I pulled out my notes to write this article, in both memory of him, and to honor the faeries.

The feeling of opening I felt while listening to John speak so lovingly and graciously about the faerie realm, really made an impression on me. John taught me to place crystals, shiny buttons, or other small pretty things, outside for the faeries. Sprites love shiny things.

I learned if you take something from an area, such as a small rock or stone, you leave something for the fairies.

While I have always loved animals, it has taken me much longer to appreciate insects, birds, trees, and forests. And that’s okay, because I appreciate them, Now.

If you look closely, you may see a sprite (faerie) or two, atop the yellow flowers I’m standing near at Glastonbury, England. (2019)

When I planted a fig tree on the property in Hollister, Florida (where we lived Off Grid for 17 months), I placed many crystals and a few broken pieces of jewelry, in a circle around the tree, as gifts to the sprites. And a wink to my teachers.

Note to self: While we were on our Sacred Celtic Journey, friends, John and Carol told me about the John Van Aucken book on fairies gnomes and elementals. I have yet to read it, but it’s on my list! ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Sometimes, when I wake in the wee hours of the morning, I remember that Celtic music… 🎼 🎶 🎵 I remember and listen. I imagine I’m back in Ireland, England, and Scotland. I feel for my roots. I imagine my family. The generations before. I smile. I cry. I give thanks for magic and mystery. I feel all is well. Even when appearances may want to suggest otherwise. I know much is not what it seems.

The faeries have taught me that.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

Times I nearly died

Ran over

Was run over by dad’s car when I was a toddler!

Yes, I was playing in the driveway and the car rolled over me, while mom watched in horror from the porch. She said I ducked as the “pumpkin” of the car went over my head. Mom said dad turned white as a sheet! I didn’t get a scratch.

Almost fell out of a moving car

Another car incident happened when mom set the clothes basket between her and I. I think she was tired or annoyed with me over something.

I opened the car door and nearly fell out! but mom was quickly able to reach over and grab my winter coat, which saved me! When she retold that story, she said she’d been upset with me and put the basket in between us! She never did that again.

Forced field landing

In the late 1980s, I had began working for a very prestigious private aeronautical university. One of our instructor pilots, offered to let me ride along while she took a student pilot on a “prog check,” which is a progress check on their flying. Flight students go through a lot of these kinds of “checks” during their years of training.

Anyway, on this particular prog check, we all wore headsets (and this is key), and the student puts the plane through a series of maneuvers. At one point during our flight, I heard my friend ask the student to sight a field large enough to land because we had lost an engine.

The student found a field and the instructor, my friend, said it was appropriate. I was beginning to sweat.

When my friend announced that we had lost our second engine, and that the student was to start his steps to initiate a forced field landing, I literally said my prayers, and thanks for all my family, children, etc.

My first granddaughter and I holding hands

Something in that moment told me to lift one side of my headset though.

Thankfully, what I heard shocked and surprised me! The plane’s engines were running!!

And that’s the story I always tell to new hires or those that I train on a job, to make sure WE personally check our projects progress, before we panic and believe some external indication that there’s a problem. Usually, there’s no real problem, it’s only one perception.

I’m sure glad we actually didn’t have to land that plane in a field though!

Funny what we think about when we think we might die. ❤️🦋🌀〰️🔥🙏☯️

Spinning out

When my daughter was 16 or so, I had let her drive us back from Orlando on I-4 in Florida. It was raining and the tires on my car were nearing time to be replaced. She was going about 70mph and had the cruise control on.

Seemingly, for no reason, the car started to spin out of control! We literally turned 360 degrees, in the middle of the highway!

We ended up inches from a tree on the side of the road. My daughter was overcome with emotion when she looked over and saw I had not had my seatbelt on. And I felt like it was a miracle we had not hit the tree. We were able to get back on the road and I drove us home. But we learned never to drive using the cruise control when it’s raining!

Flu in 2005

The summer of 2005, I was sooo sick that my husband insisted on taking me to the Emergency Room (ER) of our local hospital. It was there that the two nurses who attended to me told me, “You can’t get the flu in the summer.” But, I tell you, I had the worst flu I had ever had in my life!

I felt so bad, I thought I would die! I coughed so hard and so much, I peed blood, and was given an antibiotic for a urinary tract infection (UTI), though I had no other symptoms of that (and I have had plenty in my life to know what they feel like.

I detail all of this in my book, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life!

Flu in 2019

Just after arriving home from Ireland, December 19, 2019, I experienced some weird kind of flu.

My husband teased me a bit, that I had picked up some sickness from that neolithic tomb I had been in! Ugh. (But he really did take good nursing care of me while I was ill.)

I carried a fever for a whole weekend and couldn’t taste my food. But because I do Qigong and Breathwork, I never felt I had to gasp for air.

My back hurt from whatever coughing I had done though, and that was different for me. That was the part I thought was strange about the whole situation.

A friend, who’s now an herbalist, brought me over her special blend of tea. I was to steep it in a boiling pot of water, drape a towel over my head and stand over the pot, head hanging over, to inhale the vapor. I’m sure grateful for caring friends! (If you haven’t yet, now is a good time to build strong relationships!)

I also took Mullein (which is excellent to ease coughs, and people don’t talk about it enough!), vitamin C, and zinc. And drank my water from a copper mug. I rinsed my nostrils and sinuses out daily with a bit of buffered salt and neti pot. And I doubled up on the redox molecules we take.

Something worked, because within about 10 days began feeling better. I can’t tell you what I had or my process, as the doc (yes, I eventually got checked at a walk-in clinic), never tested me, and the public didn’t know about Coronavirus at that time.

Suffice to say, our cabinets are stocked, and have been all through 2020-2021, but gratefully acknowledging we have been fine.

I often wonder about that old saying, “When your time is up, it’s up”!

Many blessings to you in ALL ways.

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!

🌀 Energy Tuning

🔵 Mirror ball: Valuing ALL perspectives

🌱 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)

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. ❤️🦋🌀〰️

Pondering: A day in Jesus’ life if He walked the earth NOW?

A day in Jesus’ life if He walked the earth NOW?

This is a question I am currently pondering: What would a day in Jesus’ life look like if He walked the earth NOW?

  • Would His disciples be glued to their smartphones, while sitting in Jesus’ presence?
  • Would He or His disciples watch TV, listen to the radio, talk on the phone, play video games, or get caught up in any “distractions”?
  • Would He still wear sandals, shoes, or walk barefoot?
  • Would Jesus own property? Maybe somewhere Off Grid, where He could commune with nature?
  • Would Jesus eat processed food, or grow His own food?
  • Would Jesus preach and teach from different churches or homes? Tent revivals? Sacred ancient sites? Speak on Clubhouse?
  • Would Jesus drive, or walk? Ride a bicycle, or have his disciples drive him around? Perhaps use public transportation?
  • How many hours a day would Jesus pray? Would He meditate?
  • Would Jesus watch or play sports of any kind?
  • How would Jesus CONNECT people?
Fast and pray, meditating on ALL. We are thankful. Unnecessary things and habits can fall away. We can see with REAL EYES. ❤️🦋🌀🙏☯️

Here’s one of our original songs you can listen to as you ponder some of these things:

If Jesus wore shoulder pads

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. ❤️😉

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)
