Free Docuseries About Brain Health

My mom made me aware of this “Broken Brain” 8-part docuseries of free information for anyone who’s suffering from or knows anyone facing brain challenges like ADHD, Brain Fog, Autism, Depression, and/or Dementia. I would also include people with Lyme Disease, Candida or Traumatic Brain Injury as likely to benefit from this information. I’ve not had a chance to listen through the full first episode, but I’m posting this while you still have time to catch the talk. You can watch the series trailer and sign up here.

The series focuses not only on brain problems, but also on how to foster optimal brain health, energy and mental clarity. I have no connection with this series, but I know a lot of blog readers and clients have found me through Lyme Disease, Autism and TBI support groups. Just wanted to pass along some inspiration and empowerment.

Some Quick Updates

First of all, yes, it’s snowy and cold, and I love it! We’re having so much fun in this winter wonderland.

Yes, I’m writing. I returned to the nonfiction book about healing Lyme disease, since my foray into fiction and an avalanche of synchronicities revealed a different, more engaging way to write this book. No idea when I’ll finish, but it’s going well. My fiction and fiction research continue, too.

I’ve also done final, final edits on my chapter in Mike Clelland‘s upcoming book, “Stories from the Messengers.” I’m making my way through a review copy, and so far, so fascinating. 🙂 I’ll write a full review once he releases the official version of the book.

David and I continue to settle in, exploring, creating and refining the new as we move into Imbolc season at the end of January. Just a quick reminder for anyone interested in the 8-Day Wheel of the Year Special: tomorrow (Monday, January 15th) marks the last day to sign up for that year of eight focused sessions and Reiki Healing Attunements.

So many beautiful and synchronous events continue to unfold here, and I feel such gratitude to witness and experience the shifts. Wishing you and yours a magical week!

Blessed Be … and be the blessing.

Druidcast 129 ~ Philip Carr-Gomm on Creativity, Story and Magic

This afternoon, I finally had time to catch up on the December 18, 2017 Druidcast, which includes a question and answer session with Philip Carr-Gomm from the OBOD East Coast Gathering. Interspersed with lovely and haunting music, the discussion explores creativity, inspiration (aka Awen), receptivity, the power of Story, and the ethics and expression of magic, ceremony and cultural sharing — especially looking at Maori and Hindu crossovers with Druidry. Here’s the podcast link for anyone interested in the talk.

Dixon’s Violin ~ I Wish I Could

Dixon’s Violin was the last of many amazing concerts we listened to last night at New Year’s Fest of Kalamazoo. Everything he does is complete improvisation, and the melodies he wove transported me to another realm. What an inspiring way to ring in 2018! Enjoy:

“I often hear people say with sadness “I wish I could…” followed by something they actually could do. I believe you can do anything you set your mind and heart to! If you find yourself saying those words, I encourage you to pause and consider: assume that you CAN do that thing, now what choices would you need to shift in your life? What actions can you take to make it happen? You are more powerful than you think! With love and in service, – Dixon”

Elicia Miller ~ Express What’s Repressed

Today’s post is a courtesy announcement for other coaches, therapists and healing practitioners:

My friend and colleague, Elicia Miller, is offering her last taught-by-her “Express What’s Repressed” 60-Day Program. (After this course, she’ll be training others to facilitate this program rather than teaching it herself.) I’ve had many clients greatly benefit from Elicia’s various programs and offerings for Core Emotional Healing. This particular program starts on January 3rd and is only for coaches, therapists, and healing practitioners who need to address things themselves in order to help their clients and business.

Plus this is the prerequisite for Elicia’s certification program starting April 2018. You can find more information here: https://eliciamiller.com/core-emotional-healing-training/

I know I have quite a few counselors, coaches and healers as blog readers, so I wanted to give people a “last call” heads up, in case you’ve felt called in this direction. (As a Medical Intuitive, I’d say this program would be especially supportive of any professionals dealing with neck, thyroid, and/or jaw issues.)

Alternative Tim Martin Remembrance

Thank you to everyone who’s left comments, emails or caring texts about our sweet friend’s sudden journey into the Otherworld. David and I are doing as well as can be expected. I feel so blessed to be able to use my gifts, skills and experience to help support Tim’s daughter Eimhear (“ever”) through this process. For me, this has been so helpful in my own grieving, as I know I am giving the greatest gift I could possibly offer Tim. She’s doing surprisingly well now that she knows her dad is very much in her corner, giving her signs and support and messages during this difficult time.

Eimhear’s mother (Tim’s lovely ex-wife Kathleen) started a GoFundMe site that explains how and why they’re going about things in a non-traditional way. Because of Tim’s reverence for the Earth, they’re allowing no chemicals into his body, which means no viewing, a cremation, and for now, they’re having just a private family ceremony. Eimhear and Kathleen initially contacted me to help plan a very “Tim” kind of wake or send-off, but as we’ve discussed options, a less “out there” ceremony for family members feels most supportive right now.

Kathleen started the GoFundMe page because a lot of people really loved Tim. So many people have contacted her asking if they can send flowers to the funeral home. As Kathleen says, “We understand Tim touched many people who are left shocked by his sudden passing who would appreciate the opportunity to express their grief in some manner, so we have opened this Gofundme in lieu of flowers that may have been sent to a viewing. Any funds donated will go exclusively to help cover Eimhear’s college expenses that Tim had previously taken care of.”

Please understand this is not a “please give money” post, but rather an option for those who loved Tim to be able to do something tangible in their grief. I know being able to offer tangible support to Kathleen and Eimhear has made this a beautiful, though difficult journey, so I wanted to share this opportunity for anyone who feels so led. Whether you knew Tim or not, if you’ve read this blog for the past 2.5 years, you’ve been touched by Tim. He was a huge presence in our lives and a rich source of inspiration and ideas, which he continues to be in so many ways. You can read more and/or donate by clicking here.
