Happy New Year..May Peace Prevail~

It has been quite a year. I started this year out moving to a new place...leaving behind many friends and a wonderful business that I loved. We went to India early this year and now I am ending my year with another trip there..this time solo.
We had two new Grandchildren!! Our son was diagnosed with something..but is doing quite well despite it. My Healing Practice is flourishing and I am able to be a facilitator in so many wonderful experiences for others...its a beautiful gift.
We are all healthy and Happy and we have made so many new friends in this new place we now call home...getting used to snow is still something I am trying to learn to do...but that will come with time.
But most of all I realize how lucky I am to be where I am in my life..I have learned so much this year. About myself, and how Love and Forgiveness are the greatest gifts one can receive....I have received both this year in so many ways...beyond belief...
and I am humbled by the wonder of it all!

Happy New Year my friends~

Nancy...marries Jimmy!

I'm sure you all recognize the face above from Saturday Night Live...our beloved Jimmy Fallon!
But....you probably have never heard of Nancy Juvonen..I used to be her mothers assistant when I lived in Mill Valley. Her name was Pam Juvonen and she was the most wonderful soul~
She died about 9 years ago of cancer...but we were great friends and she was a great boss~
Her daughter is best friends and partners with Drew Barrymore...once when her and Nancy came up for Christmas we all exchanged gifts and I went to Costco and bought a Vegetarian Lasagna because Drew is Vegetarian. Drew and Nancy created "Flower Films" down in LA and produced such films as Charlies Angels...among others.Nancy and her brother are both very successful...he is a screenwriter in New York. Now Nancy is Jimmy's new bride and I am sure if Pam were still with us she would be Beaming with Smiles and Love for them both....as I am sure she is from above!

New Eyes

seeing things through New Eyes.....at least that's how I have been feeling lately. I have been doing so much studying and inner work with my healing work along with Meditation and my Yoga practice it has been so amazing and somehow "different" inside of me..in my heart, deep within...I don't know, its hard for me to put it into words what has been happening to me..and around me..but there is a difference, a New Change...and its like I am evolving into a different girl..and better, more intense and deep person...
I know its hard to understand..I am barely able to, yet its there, and its so Wonderful!
I feel things more and experience things on such a much deeper level..I know its like I am rambling here..but i want to write this down...i need to remember how this came about and how much more it will Grow with time...just for my own sake and for the record~
OM Shanti

how many prayers....

I have a client...I don't like the sound of that word when describing this beautiful, radiant spirit..so lets just call her "My Inspiration"
as that is what she has become in the two short weeks I have known her.
When my phone rang and she asked to make an appointment with me...she told me that she had cancer 5 years ago...that they had to cut most of the right side of her face away to get it all..including into her neck. She had a clean bill of health for awhile..so her and her husband had a beautiful Pixie of a little girl and she is now 2...I hear her upstairs crying for her Mother while I am downstairs in her healing room...giving her a healing session....the reason she wanted to see me is that she went to her doctors last month and they found a tumor on her brain..and they can't touch it..they said it's Terminal, and she is taking heavy pain medication as she is in pain.
But "My Inspiration" has this spark in her eye..I say eye because her right eye is paralyzed as is the right side of her face from all the cutting they had to do to her. But there is something there..and when I first met her I cried when she sat with me and told me her story. I told her I was so sorry for crying, she was the strong one...She IS strong. After I left her during our first session I drove away from her estate feeling so sad...I kept thinking of all the times I complain about the most minor things, a pimple, tight jeans,my hair...and then I meet this incredible woman with a husband and a 2 year old who has been given a death sentence..yet she is staying so positive and so strong.
The second time I met with her..I didn't feel sadness...in fact I felt incredible Hope and I sensed that I was not alone during our second healing....I had help with me (as I always do)....I drove away from her estate the second time and I felt a huge feeling of Peace dwelling inside of me...something told me "Everything will be OK"...
today was our third session...and while I was working with her I felt my hands being guided and there was this energy that was SO incredible around her head and chest that it brought tears to my eyes...and you know, she said she had not ever felt anything during our sessions before..but today..Today was different she said...she told me she felt Heat around her head....and she said that she felt a feeling of JOY and Peace in her heart...It made me so happy and she was so happy...it was a moment I will never forget.
She will go to the doctors again on January 11th..the day after I leave for India. They will see if the tumor has grown...or if by chance of some Miracle upon Miracles..it is gone.
Miracles do happen..they happen everyday...and I am praying for this one Miracle...I am praying a lot...

Love without End

It seems as though I was lead to this book...not unlike I have been lead to many other wonderful things and situations in my life..but let me explain.

A while back I was reading my friend Larugas blog..and she wrote something from this book in her blog..and it just touched me so deeply (as her writing always does) but at the end she wrote the authors name...Glenda Green....and that is what really struck me. Because it just so happens that about 28 years ago I was working in a health spa for women, teaching Aerobics! The owner of the spa was a wonderful, brilliant man named Neil Davis....beautiful daughters, and the best boss I have ever had in my life! On Christmas Day each and every year, Neil would make it his tradition to personally drive to each of his employees homes to deliver them their Christmas Gift that he bought for each of us. He arrived at my front door on Christmas..all those years ago, and he gave me a very large framed print of a painting done by the artist Glenda Green...it was a woman's lower half of her legs running down a stairway with a green skirt and the title was "Glenda Green, Flight of Spring"

I will never forget how much I loved that and I hung it immediately in my bedroom!

On the 16th of December I was in Marin at my friends office doing 8 healings..one right after the other...and in her office was a book shelf....at one point during one of the healings, my eyes were drawn to the bookshelf and what I saw was the book...."Love without End" by Glenda Green...

I couldn't believe my eyes.....

so when I got home I knew I had to order the book...I knew it was a sign and I am one to listen to the signs I am given! They always lead me in the direction that I am supposed to go and never am I steered in the wrong direction~
So I now have this lovely book...and I am savoring each and every line in it...and I got to page 21 Chapter 3..and it seems as though it was written for me....that I was guided to this book, to read this page and those words...Amazing!! It just blew my mind...it is where I am right at this moment in my life...where I was guided to be and this work that I now do..it all just happened so smoothly and beautifully and I am so grateful and feel so blessed that it is so humbling and beyond words.
Thank You Laruga..you played a role in this as well..without us even knowing it!
Om Shanti~

my friend Rieko~

I received an email from my friend Rieko whom I met while I was in Encinitas taking my Level lll Certification for the healing work that we both do with The Reconnection~
She is pictured on the left~a beautiful Spirit who I am SO lucky to have "connected" with as I know we will be friends for life...
She read my blog..and wanted to do something to help with the charity that I started called "Walking in Their Shoes"...but since the birth of "WITS" I have received 90 pairs of shoes from all over the globe and as I will be traveling to India alone this time...I can't possibly take anymore. So Rieko sent me a 100.00 check to donate to the children of Mysore....and I will be giving that money to "Operation Shanti" when I arrive in Mysore, India as that is the charity that I am teaming up with. They feed the Mothers and Children everyday and I know that the money will help tremendously in that respect!
So again my sincere gratitude and Thanks to my friend Rieko~ we will see each other again one day and I look so forward to that day!

Namaste my friend~

and now today....

This is a time of psychological and emotional equilibrium, when the different aspects of your personality are in tune with each other

You can face your daily life with less effort than usual, which is bound to have some consequences in your material universe as well.

Relations with friends and close neighbors will be very harmonious, and you may make some new friends.

People will be at ease with you today because you are at ease with yourself. The routine discussions, negotiations and transactions of everyday existence will offer no obstacles.

This is an especially good time to think about your personal and emotional life. Strains in that area can be corrected now, because you are relatively at peace with yourself and with others, and communications about personal matters should be easy

Today is going to be a Yin Day for this girl~ My body is so achey and tired...maybe doing too much, but a relaxing Yin Practice should make all the difference...
Going to go and see Marley this weekend..our new little sweet pea~~~~
then of course Christmas will be upon us and then...you know who takes off for India very, very soon!!

the Gift

I have this client...she is the most spectacular woman...but she is just now realizing it..and she is in her 60's. I feel sad about this...no, not that she is a spectacular person,and human being...but that she never thought this about herself. I have known her for only one month, and in that one month she has begun to blossom and grow and SHINE! I could never imagine the feeling..or lack thereof..of not ever feeling JOY.Just stop for a moment,,and imagine that. Not ever, in your whole Life..feeling no Joy. But this is how she has lived all of her life...that is up until now!
She told me after her third healing session, that she wakes up in the morning now...and has the feeling of Joy inside of her chest! It made us both cry....she said she feels engulfed in a feeling of Love and Gratitude and Joy...
my god...what greater gift could someone be given that that feeling?!!
My whole world feels complete, just hearing those words come from her mouth~
It s a wonderful feeling to be a part of that gift~
especially at this time of year!

Wow...I never thought the day would come when I would be a Grandmother...but I love it SO much and I find myself acting like a little kid when I am with Kaili, my first grand baby! Its so much fun..and its hard not to buy her everything in the toy store!!

Yesterday I had 8 Healings in Marin~ I worked from 9 am till 5 pm and the most miraculous things occurred in that office....this work is Real..It does Work...and I am so blessed to be a facilitator in it all~ each and every client I saw wants to have Three Healings..so I will be back after I get home from India! It was truly a wonderful, Amazing day for us all!

picked up these awesome shoes for my trip....half off!!! They should be just perfect~ especially for this time of year in the South~~~
Sierra Trading Post rocks!

miss india...

what is this feeling of contentment...of being so full inside that you need nothing more...
knowing that everything is OK....and life is as it should be at this moment in time.....
missing India, but knowing that soon I will be back on sacred ground very soon,
I am savoring each moment here at home....yet the longing doesn't stop...for Mother India~~~
was I once a person who lived there?maybe even died there? I cannot say...I only know that when I return, I feel as though I am Home at Last~ and when I leave it hurts so much that I can hardly bare it....
I am grateful for living here in America~ but nothing will change my love for India...people can't understand it...but that's OK...I do, and that's all that is needed~


well..its been a really successful week with my Yoga Practice..everyday, other than Saturdays and Moon Days off...but today I must practice Yin as my shoulder blades and back are screaming for mercy!!!
But my body has been craving the daily asanas and loving every moment of it~
I will be in Marin ALL DAY Sunday as I have 9 healings that day! One right after the other starting at 9 am!! And I can hardly wait~ I just so love seeing and hearing the results from my clients, so fulfilling~ its worth the long day for me~
Have a wonderful weekend and Namaste to all~

Beauty and Pain

as the days pass by..and i see how much longer i have until i leave for India....i keep imagining what i will do each day....how my days will begin and what they will hold.
Having been to India before...this is my fourth trip in five years...i am quite familiar with things and places and what to expect....
of course there is always that element of Surprise!
and if you stay in that state of "expectancy" instead of that state of "expectation" you will never be disappointed!
the beauty is there, waiting...and there will be pain as well....as there always is...
but in my 46 years, i have grown accustomed to both and try not to let it get the best of me.
it will be, what it will be...and who could control it even if they tried?
Om Shanti~

Like a Flower...

something absolutely Exquisite and Profound happened today...
everyday is a Magical Mystery...as I am finding out the older I get...but this work..it IS Extraordinarily Wonderful! I just have to say~ and to be a part of it all is just too Beautiful to imagine!
I have this client..or patient...however you would wish to say it, and she came to me with a referral from her MD who also practices Homeopathy~with two offices..one in LA and one in Santa Cruz,
she was extremely ill, she almost left this life in July in fact...
she arrived at my office three weeks ago....looking and acting very, very ill...her eyes were so dark and lifeless...
I gave her the first healing that day...
she called me and wanted to come back...she felt a "flicker" of something...and felt somehow "different" after our first meeting...
the second time she came to my office..she was so withdrawn and inward somehow..I felt her pain..in my hands...I even almost began to cry at one point..it was dramatic to say the least..
today was our third meeting..
Eric always says "Something Special seems to occur during the third healing"
For the love of God....
It was like a Light Bulb EXPLODED within this precious soul~
She had a life to her that I had NEVER, EVER seen before...
some pretty amazing stuff happened today when she was in my office, on my table...
too powerful to imagine and when she left~she told me that she wakes up in the morning now with a feeling of JOY inside of her chest~she had never felt that her whole life she said~
" I feel like a flower bud that is slowly blooming..and I can feel each and every petal as it unfolds"...as tears streamed down her lovely face..and I thought to myself.."How could I have been chosen to do this work that makes people feel so Alive and Real and Whole...How"?
I am so utterly humbled and Blessed~

I just finished reading "The Only Way Out Is In" by Anthony "Prem" Carlisi

very good book, and he has the best sense of humor too.

Here is an excerpt that I found to be very true and it made me think too....

The Secret behind Asana, if used correctly, is that it shows us how to go beyond the physical. We can transcend it only when we go thoroughly into it. For those of you who are stuck doing asana primarily as an exercise, I'm sorry to say are making an "Ass-ana" out of themselves.

How true is that?!!

Carry on~~

Saturday, December 8, 2007

Ticket arrived today! I am halfway there!!!
Am I feeling good??? No...I am feeling GREAT!
Happy Saturday~~~~

Another idea for a gift......

we just ordered two of them!

For Prayer Wheels and mantras of various kinds Tantricheartwheels welcomes you!

This site contains information on acquiring prayer wheels and the microfilmed mantras to be wound inside them. We have Om Mani Padme Hum mantras, the 7-Line prayer of Padmasambhava, the Medicine Buddha mantra and now recently (as of January 2007) the Green Tara mantra -Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha. All on microfilm. Why microfilm? Because according to the lineage text on prayer wheels the more mantras that are wound inside the more powerful the prayer wheel. Microfilm is the best technology because it reduces the written mantra with clarity-retaining the integrity of the script. Also according to the lineage text the mantras inside a prayer wheel "must face outwards" and microfilm is the best technology that follows these guidelines set by enlightened beings. (For microfilm mantras only go to the 'Contact Us' page then click on the sub-link titled 'Mantra reels'."To benefit sentient beings, the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas manifest in the prayer wheel to purify all our negative karmas and obscurations and to cause us to actualize the realizations of the path to enlightenment." Lama Zopa Rinpoche Unique Prayer Wheel Pendants Available!Carry Om Mani Padme Hum-the mantra of the Compassion Buddha with you... over your heart. (The Medicine Buddha mantra and [ultimate in protection] the 7-Line Prayer of Padmasambhava are available too.)Inside each prayer (Mani) wheel pendant below is a roll of microfilm of over 1 million Om Mani Padme Hum mantras from an original we obtained from the Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.The Om Mani Padme Hum mantra is unique in its incredible potency in purifying karma and accelerating enlightenment realizations. Known by advanced yogis and Dharma masters to enhance siddhis (spiritual powers) it helps to uplift others from lower states, accumulate merit (good karma) and actualize the wisdom to realize enlightenment.These sterling silver mani-wheel pendants are easily spun. With a flick of the finger they whir like a mini-tornado radiating blessings. Spinning a prayer wheel while intoning Om Mani Padme Hum imbues you and your surroundings with the expansive luminosity of Pristine Interconnected Non-duality. This is another way of saying that while spinning a prayer wheel you are practicing a profound Dharmic path that will help you realize the true essence of your natural mind - unlimited cognizance free of solidifications. At the heart of this Dharma practice is the ACCUMULATION OF MERIT (good karma) and the BLOSSOMING OF WISDOM. Prayer wheel pendants this powerful bestow extensive compassionate benefits to those openhearted enough to reap their fortunate karma. THE POWER OF OM MANI PADME HUMOm Mani Padme Hum is a potent mantra attuned to the resonating frequency of the subtle light body of human beings. This is different than the western idea of prayer. This mantra is a sacred word or primordial resonance that is used as an activating tool to take one out of conceptual habits and into the NOW of spontaneous presence. Thought-free Wakefulness. Like a tuning fork that causes other tuning forks of the same key to vibrate, the resonating frequency of Om Mani Padme Hum harmonizes with the spiraling DNA rainbow body of light that is our own inner galaxy of freewheeling chakras of pure awareness!

To Get..you must Give~

I just finished up with my first paid Reconnection! I have SO much energy from giving it that I feel like I am on a high like no other! Woah!!

Happy Shiny Girl today!! (everyday)
