one Miracle at a time

I had a pretty amazing experience today with a new client who called me for a Healing session...

It was as if "destiny" brought her to me... maybe not really destiny so much as the Powers that be~

But however..or whoever..or whatever it was...today was so deeply moving for us both and we both left in tears..

this work that I do now is nothing short of Utterly Amazing! I have no other words to describe it...but Miracles can and Do happen..here in this Magical Life that we live...if we have eyes that will let us see...there is such a thing as a Miracle.

Maybe its the soul work that I have been doing..that deep, deep work that you can get to if you truly work hard at it for a very long time...

and truly wish to experience things that people say could Never Happen!

I am so happy that my mind is so open and I accept what appears before me and I take a chance...God knows where I would be now if I didn't!!

May your life only get better with each passing day~and may Miracles continue to surprise us all!

Eyes Wide Open

I can't seem to get enough sleep these days...and then being awake I am so tired. I thought the moon was so bright last night, it just feels like a full moon day today....
I honor my body and how it feels, and the thought of rolling out my mat, makes me want to just lie down on it and go back to sleep!!! Is it because I am 46 years old...because I can remember the days of being up ALL night long and having a fully charged day the next day...going like a mad woman..with energy and then some.
I will run today..that I can do...its a moving forward motion that gets me energized..and I refuse to give in to "nothing" today!! I get into bed at night and read my spiritual books, journal, meditate, and feel so tired...then I turn off the light and get all my pillows in position, close my eyes..and I am Wide Awake! Maybe its my upcoming trip to India that I think about...6 weeks away... I need to sleep!!!
OM Shanti

Bless you Baby Grace~

There are things in this life that will never, ever, ever make sense...People.... people who have children and then brutally torture them and watch them die...burying them in a body of water...all at the age of 2 or 3...WHY??????? Why can't you do what my parents did to me?? Put them up for adoption or leave them somewhere safe like a Police Station or a Hospital?? So that someone who has tried forever and ever to have a child, may take care of her and give her a wonderful, safe, life.... filled with love and joy...
The beautiful, innocent, precious little children who look up to their mom and dad...to protect them and keep them from danger...only to be horribly abused and murdered...
I pray on this night that Riley aka "Baby Grace" is in a safe place now, where she will never be hurt again..protected from harm always and forever..Sweet Dreams sweet girl~

Pearl and Jaguar from Bangalore,India

I have a link to an animal adoption site in Bangalore, India on my page to the right. I LOVE animals..all animals and one of the hard parts for me when I travel to India, is seeing all of the homeless dogs that run around, dodging cars and people...

I always bring a bag of chicken strips that I buy for my dogs, and I give them to the street dogs when I am out. I have to be careful though...because dog fights happen before you know it when one dog sees another being fed...it can be really dangerous for them. So I am really careful when I do it. But the post below just made me cry to see these beautiful two dogs that are being given away. I swear..if I lived in India right now, I would drive over immediately and pick these two up! I have three dogs of my own...but when I move to India in the future..I plan on getting a few more!

"This has been the most difficult decision for me to make till date, however its time for me accept the fact that my house is too small for Pearl & Jaguar. Pearl & Jaguar were born on 19th April 2007 & I got them home on 3rd June, 2007 and now they are 7 month old. They always loved playing with each other & loves to fetch the ball each time we throw it and they can play for hrs. Both are a sweet heart and very friendly by nature. Pearl has grey eyes & pink nose he is very cute, do not go on his looks he is very naughty & needs lots of attention he gets anoid very fast that's why we some time call him angry young man. The best thing about him is that he is very loving you can't resist yourself from pampering him, he has this eyes which speaks thousand words and I will miss them a lot. Jaguar is very sober in nature, he loves getting pampered and never gets enough of it. Jaguar most of the time losses to Pear on the ball fetching game, but there are days when he would be in form and would not let pearl to fetch the ball even once. Jaguar lets Pearl dominate him, that makes him very sweet brother. They both are vaccinated and were trained for about a month. Both are fawn in color. I would like to give them to some one who would love them unconditionally & who would adopt both of them together, as it would be very difficult for them to be without each other. Some one who has sufficient place for them to run around and play. They are one of the best thing that has ever happened to me and I am sure the lucky one who will have them will agree to me."

Just for fun....too bad they can't really do it!

from the book.."The Only Way Out Is In"...

"The Guest House"

This being human is the guest house,

Every morning a new arrival,A joy, a depression, a meanness,

A momentary awareness comes

As an unexpected visitor,

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,

Who violently sweep your house

Empty of its furniture.

Still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out

For some new delight.

The dark thought,the shame,the malice,

Meet them at the door laughing

And invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes

Because each guest has been sent

As a guide from beyond.

It is almost Thanksgiving once again~again...how time flies.....
its been so extremely beautiful here where I live these days. My husband and I went for a run in the rain yesterday..not really rain..drizzle...but it was refreshing and fun none the less! Now it's sunny and gorgeous out this morning~
I keep thinking about how much I wish I could get back to Varanasi next year while I am in India..but I will be grateful just to be back in Mother India and leave it at that!
The city of Varanasi is just such a spiritual city..and it grabbed me tight and just held on long, long after I had left there....one day I do wish to go back, and I will.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all...and don't forget to be Thankful each and everyday!
Om Shanti!

Beautiful girl, born on her grandpa's birthday!

OM Shanti, Shanti,Shanti

This Life...

It has been a day of "Realization" and "Healing" for my youngest...
I really don't like to talk about personal matters here, personal matters are well...Personal. Some things should be kept private. But it was SO good! It is a New Day~~~with a very Bright Beginning for a 16 year old young man and I am so happy. Because when your children are happy it is one of the best gifts you could ever receive. At least that is how I feel.
My children's happiness is simply everything to me.
It is what I live for...and would die for...my children.
I have been blessed today...as I feel I am most everyday. Just to wake up in the morning is indeed a blessing. I don't like to dwell on things too long, for in the time it takes to dwell on one thing...that one thing has changed and now you have another..Right?
Like a beating heart...each moment is different..and ever changing.
Like my friend Ursula..we ponder these things daily! Which in my opinion is a good thing!
A Very Good Thing indeed~
Ahhh life....
gotta love it!

As One

I sometimes stop and just for a moment I ask the "unknown" that is always watching over me...
What did I do in my previous life that I am now here in this one..and am so extremely Blessed and so very Loved..
Loved so much that it sometimes hurts because as we all know everything is "Impermanent".
I have learned though..not to hurry my life...not to wish so hard for something in the future..because with the future we age and we die just a little more each day and each moment.
But I do long for the day when my beloved will retire (10 more years) and we will be able to spend so much more time together..
You see, we have this love that is unexplainable..we are, as you might say.."As One" and although it may be hard to comprehend...its just the way it is with us.
We finish each others sentences..we say something that the other one just was going to say only seconds before...we buy the very same cards for each other sometimes on our Anniversary or Valentines Day...and we have even had the same dreams at night.
Why Me?..I won't question it..I will just say Thank You..and I will do my best to be the very best person I can be in this life I am now living...because is I was this lucky this time...can you even imagine another??
OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

My Journal Cover~

My sweet artist friend in Canada has created a cover for my journal that I will be taking with me next year to India...
I didn't tell her what I wanted..only that I would love it to have India Gods or Goddess's on the cover...she had no idea that what she chose is my most favorite of Goddess's...
Lakshmi~The Goddess of Beauty and Abundance...
I have Lakshmi through out my whole house! I have paintings, statues, hangings and even an antique sterling silver Lakshmi framed with velvet border that I bought in Kochin 3 years ago while there. I wear her around my neck as well~
Colette...soul friend..intuitive....such a beautiful talented woman!
Her blog is on the right "A Bird in the Hand"...you might just click on it and see her work~~~~~
Holidays are coming up remember!!
Namaste my friend~
Love to you~

Close call....

OMG....My Passport and Visa were due to be delivered to me by 3pm today via Fed Ex...

It Never arrived...

I felt sick to my stomach sending them off in the first place instead of just driving into San Francisco and doing this all in person..

So I called the Indian Embassy...30 mins. later I spoke to a real live human....

they put me on hold to look for it..

and yes, I did get disconnected.


15 mins later I got a real live human being again and Begged her not to put me on hold...

they said they were looking for my Passport.

I began to cry, silently

then they came back and told me they found it! It would go out today!

It was so scary. If you have ever heard of the things that some people do to get hold of an American Passport...to sell....all sorts of thoughts were running through my mind.

But then I came back to the Breath and Trusted that it would all be OK....

and it was!

India...I am Coming back to you!

The Headshot and the Ad!


That's about all I can say about today...WOWWWWW!!!

I gave a complimentary healing to the publisher of http://www.insightdirectory.com/

and she LOVED her Healing so much that she offered me an ad in the magazine!

She is trading me for one other session..as she wants to count today's as the first!

But the part that really blew my mind...was that TODAY is the deadline for the ad!!! I couldn't believe it...oh, really I should believe it, this sort of stuff happens to me all of the time! So...Oliver took a head shot and I put my ad together and emailed the photo and the ad to her a few moments ago....WOW!!! It will run for 6 months and it comes out in December!

Then...my phone rang...

it was a dear friend from Marin who just set up her new office space and she has 8 people who want Healings!! Yes!! WOW!!! So we are planning that on the 16th of December~~~

A VERY full day of Healings that day!

The Universe is very abundant if you are Open to Receive!

Om Shanti!

It's Always a New Day!

I love knowing that with each new day, you have the chance to "start anew". To "begin again" and that is what is just so extremely Wonderful about Life to me!
Every single day is a new day to do what you do to the best of your ability and with the Best Intention! Just like Yoga~ you come to your mat every morning, do your practice and get on with the rest of your day! What could be more simple and exciting than that??
To me, that's just Everything!
Sure, were all "tested" and some days its so much harder than others...but deep down, you know, that tomorrow is a New Day and You can Begin Again~
Its the Best!
