Reiki 1 Kalamazoo, Plus a Possible Lake Tahoe Workshop this Fall

The next Reiki Level 1 Certification class will take place in Kalamazoo in mid-April.

Pending interest, my sweet Faery Twin Tania Marie and I are also in early stages of planning a visit and possible co-hosted 11/11 workshop at Lake Tahoe. Details below.


WHERE: Private residence in Kalamazoo (address provided upon registration)
WHEN: Sunday, April 15, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
COST: $175. (Pre-registration required. $25 discount if prepaid by 4/1)

Reiki (pronounced “RAY-key”) is an ancient method of healing from Tibet. “Rei” means “universal” and “ki” corresponds to the “life force energy” known as Chi or prana in other Eastern systems like acupuncture or yoga. Thus, Reiki refers to the healing qualities of “universal life force energy.” Rediscovered in the late 19th century by a Japanese monk named Mikao Usui, Reiki works on physical, mental and emotional levels, restoring balance to body, mind and spirit. After completing this workshop, students will be certified Reiki 1 practitioners.

Instruction includes:

• History, nature, and science of Reiki.

• The Reiki Principles, Precepts & Ethics

• Experiencing Reiki energy

• Discussion of 21-day cleanse

• Essence scanning process

• Giving a Reiki treatment with hand positions

• Practice self-treatment hand positions

• Treating animals and plants

• What a Reiki lineage represents

• Legal responsibilities as a Reiki Practitioner

• Reiki Level 1 Attunement(s)

• Establishing a Reiki practice

• Using Reiki with other healing arts.

Reiki Master Teacher, Medical Intuitive, Life Coach and author Laura Bruno has an international healing business and has practiced and taught Reiki certification classes throughout the United States since 2002. For more information or to register, please contact Laura here. Space is limited, so please register early to reserve your spot.




The Faery Twins are planning a visit this Fall, and we thought that maybe, just maybe we’d co-host a workshop. Possible topics include: Faeries, Manifestation, Manifesting with the Faeries, Tuning into Nature, Everyday Magic, or some other inspiration TBA. We’re just putting out feelers right now. If we offer it, the class would occur on Sunday, 11/11/18 at Tania and Dave’s beautiful home and land in Lake Tahoe. Please let us know if you’re interested.

Catherine Grace O ~ Disrupting Menopause Naturally

I want to direct people to an excellent, comprehensive post by Catherine Grace O’Connell with Functional Nutrition expert Leona West. Most people think of hot flashes and weight gain with menopause or even perimenopause, but there are sooooooo many other symptoms! I very often nudge clients to ask their doctor to test their female hormones even if the symptoms seem to be about something else. Dry eyes, vision changes, missing words, memory lapses, heart palpitations, UTI’s, insomnia … the list of potential menopausal symptoms goes on and on. If you’re a woman over 35 and especially if you’ve already hit menopause, I highly recommend this article.

Watch “March 2018 Energy Update – Lee Harris” on YouTube

Thanks to Lee Harris for the video report and to Dawn for the write-up. I definitely agree on both the creativity and the body response to people pleasing. Our bodies are excellent guides if we can’t decide. I call it “bumper bowling” when symptoms erupt to keep us more firmly on path. If we give ourselves permission just to follow our path without needing an excuse, then the bumpers (symptoms) don’t need to inflate.

Deer Heart Reiki Blog

Lee shares what the energy is about this month.

We need to check in with ourselves in regards to people pleasing. Coming up allot for people and releasing that. When we agree to do something but our body is not in alignment with that it’s a key that we are people pleasing.

Also noted was conflict. Conflicting opinions, sharp edges where that’s concerned. Lee suggested to focus on the positive outcome of change and not what is dissolving, which will help to ride the wave of creativity into the newer realms.

Lastly, creativity assists in allowing us to come into our purpose as we are all needed. Now through June there will be lots of focus on our intent and execution of what that might look like.

Thanks so much Lee Harris.

March 2018 Specials

With increased focus on healing and integration, this month features a Medical Intuitive Special, as well as a new special called “Grace in the Workplace.” As always, I intuit the month’s specials based on whatever I sense will offer most support to the most people this month. Details below:

40-Minute Medical Intuitive Special

Save 25% ($44) off the usual rate for a 40-Minute Medical Intuitive Reading.

Medical Intuition is the ability to access information about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health through “reading” the energy field around the body. A Medical Intuitive session decodes the message(s) from soul to body into language your conscious mind can understand and begin to address. It is not meant to replace traditional medical or psychological treatment, and it is not any form of medical or psychological treatment.

Instead, Medical Intuitive readings look for the root cause of continuing symptoms or conditions. Without addressing the root cause, even the “right” treatments or treatment providers fail to find a cure … or … a person continues to experience one new issue after another. By locating the root cause, a Medical Intuitive reading allows the individual to understand what the soul wants, so that healing can move through all the levels, including physical.

$133 (instead of the usual $177) for 40 minutes, if purchased on or before 3/31/18. Please contact me to sign up.


Grace in the Workplace

This new hour-long special delves deeply into career dynamics, looking to harmonize mismatches and conflicts, in order to shift into more graceful, ease filled and fulfilling work. Depending on your situation, this reading can assist with burnout, dissatisfaction, relocation, expansion, career change, or simply embracing much more Divine and supportive flow.

Many people inquire how I manage to grow and sustain a business without using social media, advertising or typical marketing. They ask me things like:

What energetic or mental tricks does this require and how can I learn them? How can I find better balance between work and play? How do I attract more compatible clients, coworkers and/or boss? How do I find more satisfaction in my current job while I prepare to move into my dream career? Do I need to consider an intermediate step? Where do I block the natural ease and grace wanting to unfold in my life’s work? What steps can I take right now to open myself to receive what my soul longs to experience?

If any of this sounds like you, too, then perhaps you’re the reason I feel led to offer this new special. $188 for the hour session if prepaid on or before 3/31/18. Please contact me to sign up.


I walked into my office this afternoon to find “Arthur,” my crystal writing muse, positively glowing.


This is an untouched photo of the afternoon sun hitting an angle I’ve never seen before. Good sign, eh?

Also a quick reminder that Wednesday’s the last day to sign up for February Specials: “Creative Jump-Start” and/or the “Reiki Master Teacher Certification Special.” I’ve certainly experienced a creative jump-start this month. The Metaphysics of Lyme Disease book continues to light up with a new structure, expert contributors, and 40,000 words added since February 1.

Wishing everyone creativity and radiant joy as we move into March with Thursday’s glowing Full Moon.

Timothy Glenn ~ Our Newest Nexus Point

Today’s post comes from Timothy Glenn, inspired by a long reply I left on his last post. Discussing two or more versions of reality, I noted, “We have options.” Here’s Tim’s riff on that concept:

Our Newest Nexus Point

By Timothy Glenn

Questions keep arising over our current evolutionary trajectory. A lot of people express concern over the future of Earth, and how prophecies of the planetary transition into the New Earth might manifest. At the root of these ponderings we find the curious assumption that there is only one Earth, one Reality and only one way for everything to unfold.

Back in the late 70’s, Continue reading

Book Review: Stories from the Messengers, by Mike Clelland

In December 2015, I wrote about how I “devoured” Mike Clelland’s book, “The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee.” Well, the long-awaited companion volume just became available! As of this writing, “Stories from the Messengers: Owls, UFO’s and a Deeper Reality” is available on Kindle only, but the paperback will get listed very soon. (UPDATE: you can find the paperback here.)

The first “Messengers” book stands out as a turning point in my life, Continue reading
