Finding Calm In The Chaos

35-IMG_5343

“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all things and still be calm in your heart.”

~Unknown


Last week during the height of my massive healing crisis,

I surrendered, I prayed, and I meditated.

I figured I had nothing to lose at that point. During the meditation, I became curious about one of my Oracle decks. So I opened the box, pulled the cards out, shuffled the deck, and I picked a card.

The card I picked…Meditate with a Rock

That one card was the answer to my prayer! That one simple sentence reminded me of a healing crisis I had in 2008 while on a business trip to Toledo Spain (home of the Spanish Inquisition). I had just completed Reiki Master training in Toronto and upon arriving in Toledo Spain, I could tell it was going to be a very bad trip. Needless to say (another story for another day) that week in Toledo Spain was the start of my psychic empathic journey.

The only 2 things that kept me grounded through the Toledo Spain experience was holding onto a rock (which I brought home with me) and my friend Rob’s idea of doing distance Reiki as a way to shift the energy. Needless to say, when I saw the “Rock Meditation” card, I immediately opened up a drawer and pulled out my Toledo Spain rock (yes – I collect rocks). I then decided to send distance Reiki to my friend Rob. As I sent distance Reiki to Rob, the energy poured out of me like a flowing river. After about 10 minutes, I stopped and noticed how the energy in my body completely shifted from being tense and on edge, to being relaxed and calm. I sent a text message to Rob to let him know (in case he noticed anything odd). His response to me “Keeping sending it!”. 2 days later he called me to tell me about his experience:

“I woke up in a bad mood. It was just one of those days, where I was irritated, annoyed, and frustrated and decided to just keep my mouth shut. Suddenly at noon, in the midst of the cold Canada air, I felt a warm tropical breeze. The breeze went through me and remove all of my negativity and left me feeling euphoric. Based on your text message, I decided to send distance Reiki to my friend in Nicaragua (without telling her to see what would happen). 45 minutes later, my friend in Nicaragua called me and told me that she decided to quit her day job before it killed her and go back to school.”

Isn’t that an amazing story about how energy flows! Talk about feeling and seeing Einstein’s theory in action…”Energy can not be created or destroyed. It can only be changed from one form to another.” What an interesting gift to see in action when I decided to surrender, pray, and meditation with a rock…

In the midst of what felt like chaos there was calm.

Where in your life is there a tornado/chaos brewing that you are ignoring? What if you could just stop resisting, and instead surrender, and have faith that you are exactly where you need to be?

Where do you need support as you rewrite your story for 2018?

Are you encountering a curve ball with your rewrite story of 2018? Or are you feeling stuck, anxious, fearful, or angry? Based on my own experience in the past several weeks, I’ve decided to offer FREE Shamanic Life/Business Strategy sessions for the month of January. Why? I offered a few sessions in December and found that the sessions where giving me as much clarity about my new step as it was for my clients. So given the curve ball incident and the energy shifts, I figured that maybe we all need a little more clarity this month as we rewrite our 2018 stories.

Curve Ball

35-IMG_5343

“When life throws you a curve ball, some times you just have to say WTF!”

~Robin Rosenstiel


Let’s face it…I started 2018 focused. I had a objectives. I had a plan. I was going to concentrate on writing my book and recreating my web site. And then…

Life threw me a curve ball!

To be honest with you, I saw the curve ball coming but I was hoping that if I ignored it, it would just go away. Lets be honest, I was in total denial about the situation. I thought I could dodge the curve ball by starting to:

  • eat more healthy again (you know – vegetables),
  • take more sea salt baths,
  • drink more medical herb teas, and
  • purify the air with essential oils, and
  • try different flower essences to manage my energy.

And then Monday I realized that I had to stop denying the issue and recognize that I was having…

A healing crisis.

What is a healing crisis? A healing crisis is a temporary situation where you get to relive an old traumatic event so that the body can restore itself to balance. My cliff note version…the body is basically rewriting it’s own story. So maybe this blog should really be called Story Rewrite – Part 2! I’ve had healing crises before, however due to the intensity, this healing crisis really made me examine my shadow gift. The gift I have been avoiding with a passion. The gift that I like to keep hidden in the closet and often refer to as…

My Liability and My Curse Story

What is my liability? I’m a psychic empath. I absorb the energy of places and people like a sponge. So for the past week, I have gotten the lovely opportunity to experience anxiety, fear, and anger on a global scale. Needless to say…by Tuesday every nerve in my body was raw as my heart pounded, I was struggling to breathe (I found myself just wanting to hold my breath) and ever emotion I felt made my skin crawl like nails on the chalk board. It felt like I had driven on black ice for 8 hours straight with no breaks. This healing crisis has forced me to learn how to shift and transmute the energy that I have been absorbing. It has also offered me the opportunity to rewrite my liability and my curse story into…

My Asset and My Gift Story

I knew 2018 would be the year that we all rewrite our stories. I just never saw this curve ball coming. I have to admit, I have no idea where this is going. I guess I will find out.

How is your rewrite story going for 2018?

Are you encountering a curve ball with your rewrite story? Or are you feeling stuck, anxious, fearful, or angry? Based on my own experience in the past week, I’ve decided to offer FREE Shamanic Life/Business Strategy sessions this month. Why?

“The future is completely open and we are writing it moment to moment.”

~Pema Chodron


Happy New Year everyone!!! With the start of 2018, you get to…

Create 12 new chapters and if you don’t like where the story is going you have the opportunity for 365 rewrites!

What a great feeling! To be able to wake up every day and know that you can change your story. Even Mother Nature has decided to create her own new chapter for January 2018. In the midst of the artic blasts and winter storms, she has decided it was time for “Snow in Florida!”

  • So how would you like to rewrite your story in 2018?
  • What are your dreams for love this year? Work? Play?  Where are you hungry for change?
  • How do you want 2018 to FEEL?
  • What would saying YES to your life look and feel like?
  • Write out everything your heart desires for this new year. Be bold.

I have included a meditation link below (including a condensed written version) to assist you in discovering your 2018 story.

What bold story are you going to create in 2018?

I would love to hear about your bold plans and your rewrite stories.
