March 2021 Specials

As always, I intuit which specials to offer each month. Given the amount of stress I’m hearing from people, I thought it was time to bring back the $77 Reiki Special. Stress suppresses immune function and makes life seem like a long, un-magical slog. Reiki not only eases stress, but it seems to smooth out the rough patches, opening people to living a more magical, synchronous life. Our unusual times offer a huge opportunity to level up. Reiki brings the energetic support to do just that.

The other special this month comes via multiple requests for it.


$77 Reiki Special

Save $8 off the usual rate for an hour of long distance Reiki, an ancient healing method rediscovered in the 19th century by the Japanese monk Dr. Mikao Usui. The “Rei” in Reiki stands for “universal” or” spiritual,” and the “ki” corresponds to the “life force energy” known as “Chi” or “prana” in other Eastern systems of healing and energy work such as feng shui, Tai Chi, Qigong, or yoga.

Thus, Reiki refers to “universal life force energy,” “divinely directed healing energy,” or “life energy of a spiritual nature,” with an emphasis on subtle energy fields rather than the physical body. By working on all the different levels, Reiki helps the body to relax into a state that allows optimal self-healing. Reiki can clear negative energies, as well as empower and support intentions and events.

This session can be scheduled for a specific time delivery while you meditate or relax, or I can set the session for delivery while you’re in deep, receptive sleep. Depending on your needs, the hour can also get delivered during an important meeting, travel or other event.

Please contact me to sign up, and share (briefly) what you’d like to support, empower or heal. If you have specific timing in mind, please share that as well. $77 (instead of the usual $85) if prepaid on or before March 31, 2021. Please contact me to sign up.

Three For Two

So many requests for a repeat of this special! Here you go… Three hours for the price of two: save $222. This package can be used in whatever increments you choose — hour, 40-minute, half-hour, or 20-minute sessions — and for whatever services you’d like — Medical Intuition, Life Coaching, Astrology, Relationship Clarity, Soul Readings, or any other related service. $444 if prepaid on or before March 31, 2021. Please contact me to sign up.

Old Friends and New Eyes

This week brought dear friends to visit whom I’ve known since 2001, back in my Seattle days. We took our Reiki Master Teacher training together in 2002, and they are among a very small set of people I still know from my brain injury days. When we met, we soon realized we had lived on the same block in Evanston, IL … but two years apart. Unbeknownst to us at the time, Wendy also lived in New York City back in my pre-TBI days when I traveled there every other week for work. Our lives have mixed and almost matched all over the country for decades.

The Hess family moved outside Charlottesville, VA about 17 years ago, and David and I saw artist and engineer, Bill Hess, a few years ago when we still lived in Goshen, IN, while taking care of David’s parents. Bill passed through en route to a glass installation in Michiana, but I hadn’t seen Wendy Vigdor-Hess for 14 years! Bill and a newly pregnant Wendy drove up to PA on one my trips to Bethlehem when I still lived in Tahoe. It was so great to meet their children — Sol and Thea — in person.


We had a whirlwind two-day visit on their way to a long weekend in Chicago. Above, you can see us all in Muskegon, Michigan, where Bill and Wendy got engaged so many years ago. We actually got to see the very spot. I’ve talked with Wendy on the phone during those 14 years apart, but it’s always so much fun when in-person visits just pick right up as though no time at all has passed. Continue reading

April 2018 Specials

Given how many people are going through profound healing shifts right now, I feel led to continue the March 40-Minute Medical Intuitive Special through April 2018. Today and tomorrow mark the last days to purchase the “Grace in the Workplace Special,” details of which you can find here. April seems primarily focused on healing, with a Reiki Special, too:

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 4/30/18. Please contact me to sign up.

Rune Soup ~ Talking the Power of Eight with Lynne McTaggert

I finally had a chance to listen to what my friend Mitch describes as “one of Gordon [White]’s best podcasts ever,” and I agree. This one’s truly excellent.

Lynne McTaggert talks about her book, “The Power of Eight,” and their fascinating discussion touches upon scientific studies of prayer, intentions, Reiki, chanting, meditation and healing on all levels. I love how Lynne’s research backs up something I tell people all the time in sessions and Reiki classes: that offering healing energy and prayers for others has profound healing effects on the sender, as well as the receiver. According to Lynne’s research, the sender receives exponentially more benefits than the receiver!

This podcast runs an hour. Given that the powerful techniques described take mere minutes, you’ll likely find it an hour well spent.

8-Day Wheel of the Year Special

Here we are at 1/8/18, and I feel led to open this opportunity for the next eight days. Over the years, many clients, friends, and blog readers have inquired about my own personal holidays — or, rather, Holy Days — intrigued by the way that big events in David’s and my life seem to unfold in a cyclical order of richly layered meaning and inspired action. In private sessions, clients ask about opportune times for various tasks or intentions, as well as ways to deepen and enrich their journey.  So many times, Turns of the Wheel of the Year present themselves as powerful openings for conscious alignment.

Many cultures recognize some version of the Wheel of the Year. Just look at crossovers among holidays: Candlemas, Imbolc/Oimelc, Groundhog’s Day, and St. Bridget’s Day, around the beginning of February (in the Northern Hemisphere); Halloween, All Hallow’s Eve, Samhain, Dia de los Muertos, All Saint’s Day in late October/early November; all the festivals of light around Winter Solstice — Christmas, Hanukkah, Mother Night, Yule, Pancha Ganapati, Soyal, and Midwinter Christmas/Christmas in July and Inti Raymi in late June/early July in the Southern Hemisphere.

Honoring and celebrating the Wheel of the Year reclaims secular or religious holidays and seasonal shifts as eight windows of “time out of time,” when the veils grow very thin. Whether we use such times as a reflective pause or to align ourselves with natural cycles, the Wheel of the Year invites us to partner with the Dance of Life.

This $888 8-Day Special will run from 1/8/18 through 1/15/18 and includes eight 40-minute sessions (one scheduled before each Turn of the Wheel, beginning in late January 2018), plus a Reiki Healing Attunement at each Turn. These private sessions will be intuitively tailored to you (and your hemisphere), helping you to recognize synchronicities and supportive energies, as well as to clarify focus, intentions, meditations of your heart, rituals, Earth healing, personal healing, and/or discernment about how to make the most of these openings.

If you’ve felt called to embrace a deeper connection with the Land and a more soulful experience of time, the 8-Day Wheel of the Year Special offers a discounted bundle of eight sessions and eight Reiki Healing Attunements in order to support and deepen your quest. This $888 bundle saves $968 off an individual investment of $1,856 and also represents my commitment to fit you in for a session prior to each Turn of the Wheel. Please contact me to sign up. Offer expires 1/15/18, because we will need time to schedule before our first Turn in late January/early February.

August 2016 Specials and September Reiki 1 Class

Due to multiple requests and my own intuitive leading, I’ve decided to extend the July 2016 Specials another month. Many people feel the need for ongoing support as they make huge shifts during this intense time period. I’ve also noticed an uptick in bizarre brushes with death and reminders of the very thin skin between what Starhawk calls El Mundo Bueno and El Mundo Malo. Most people I know have managed to embrace intuition and turn the life or death scenarios into something positive and strengthening; however, the frequency of these events even among people “on path” has convinced me that now remains an excellent time for Intuitive Preparedness.

Please also note the September 10, 2016 date for Reiki 1 Certification in Goshen, IN. There is currently a wait list for overnight housing at Haus Am See, but we do still have plenty of room for students in this class. Reiki offers a wonderful, nurturing way to relieve stress and pain, as well as empower goals and deeper healing.



Intuitive Preparedness Check-In

This is a return of a popular 2014 special, which I feel called to highlight again now due to so many people asking me about Brexit, potential US election chaos, gardening questions, and especially with so many people suddenly (since July 1) sensing new openings and opportunities that once seemed very far away. People want to know how to maintain an positive, proactive vibration and how to thrive while also shoring up any weak spots. This special responds to many comments, questions and private emails requesting my take on the question “What can I do right now?” — for specific individuals, rather than general guidelines and suggestions.

This hour session gives you access to my own intuitive scan of what areas of focus will provide you the greatest payback and sense of abundance, peace and security, with the least amount of resistance. Those looking to make larger lifestyle shifts can ask me to scan various lifestyle, location and/or community options to see which ones fit best with your vibration and heart’s desires. You can also use our time together to discuss energetic/magickal protection and manifestation tools and techniques, along with troubleshooting your most pressing concerns in various areas of life, including finances, food security, faith/spirituality/soul nurturing, relationships and/or land, including “garden guidance.”

I feel so strongly about helping people take steps from fear, denial and overwhelm into abundance, joy and freedom, that I’m keeping this pricing a simple $123. As Tolkien said, “Little by little, one travels far.”

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for this special. Offer valid if prepaid on or before August 31, 2016.

$333 Intuitive Coaching Three-Pack

With regular intuitive or life coaching sessions running $175/hour, this special offers major savings at $333/three hours. I’ve found that even people who normally process things on their own feel challenged by the increased intensity and “sorting” of the Universe these days. As we continue with Earth changes, internal and galactic shifts, I feel called to offer a short burst of support to those in need. These sessions can be used close together or saved for a future need. You can use them in hour or half-hour segments. The entire package can be gifted to someone else, but (for simplicity of paperwork) these three-packs cannot be divided and shared among multiple individuals. Offer valid if prepaid on or before August 31, 2016. To schedule your first session or purchase the package, please contact me here.

Status Update on my Dad and Sessions

Hi, and thanks to everyone for your continued prayers, love and energy healing. My family and I do appreciate them and can feel them working in our lives. So many little synchronicities and loving encounters continue to fill our lives. Thank you.

I’m writing primarily so that I have a quick link I can send in response to so many emails, especially emails inquiring about scheduling sessions right now. Since people don’t seem to be reading all the way to the bottom of updates, I’m posting the session announcement first, with my dad’s status update below. For some reason, I’ve been receiving an unusually high influx of new session requests from people who’ve been reading my blog or have known about me for years but decided this is the time they want to jump in for our work together. I encourage jumping in, but my pool is shifting right now, so anyone wanting time with me needs to have patience.

As I’ve mentioned, I need extreme flexibility in scheduling for the foreseeable future, but especially for the next few weeks. I’m not shutting down my business, but the kind of work I do requires total presence, focus, expansive consciousness, a private room, and deep emotional reserves, as many of those I help are going through major transitions in their lives. Right now, my family and I are going through that sort of transition. I’m prioritizing sessions that need to be rescheduled, but at this point I cannot offer anything new before the week of March 21st, and even that might get pushed back pending new developments.

Yesterday morning, my dad received news that his cancer has now filled his bone marrow. Normally, this would mean he has only weeks, if that, to live, but I can actually see all the life force energy pouring into the crown of his head. It’s a tremendous flow, and it seems to be keeping the cancer contained at this time. Although my dad’s platelet counts remain dangerously low, his other blood work indicates no spread of the cancer. That could change at any moment, but for now, his unusual state keeps baffling everyone at the hospital. He knows he’s receiving so much prayer and healing, though, that he credits this (and his attitude) with keeping him alive long enough to accomplish as many of his remaining to-do’s as possible.

My dad, his doctor, and our family have decided to transition my dad to “palliative” care, and my dad strongly prefers to return home. Given the extent of his non-cancer symptoms, this would require round the clock care, so today we are interviewing not only  hospice providers who can work in the home, but also visiting nurse organizations, since he needs 24 hour care in order to make this time as pain free and lucid as possible. Ironically, the non-cancer quality of life issues make it likely that my dad will be able to continue receiving treatments that can prolong his life in a positive way, since he needs platelet infusions in order to tolerate other “quality of life” options not normally considered part of hospice.

My brother spoke with my dad’s oncologist, who says my dad is one of his all time favorite patients, and this doctor wants to go above and beyond to ensure my dad can extend his time since my dad continues to touch so many people’s lives. We have received so much feedback from people all around town about my dad’s speech about the power of prayer in his life. At first, my dad felt disappointed he didn’t have strength to read it himself, but the power of having my sister read it at five church services has created a flood of impact on so many people. Wherever we go, people seem to have heard the speech and mention how deeply and powerfully it affected them. My dad’s doctor (and we) would like to make as many of my dad’s dying wishes come true, particularly since most of them are very service oriented. He seems to have developed a powerful intuitive ability to know just who needs to hear what right now, and this brings him tremendous joy.

He’s completely at peace with his situation, but he would love to spend some time in my parents’ new house. This means we are pushing up the original move date, and I will remain in PA to help coordinate a sooner rather than later move. As “official decorator” of their new home, I will also stay long enough to get them settled. My brother and I got to tour the 55+ community my 70+ year old parents are moving to, and we’re both so relieved my mom will have such friendly, warm and involved people around her. The new house has huge windows and a gas fireplace — both things my mom loves and finds deeply nurturing. The fingerprints of the Divine cover this entire process, and more so than sadness (although that’s there, too), I feel overwhelmed with tears of gratitude. It’s seriously enough to burst my heart multiple times per day.

We have all three of my dad’s brothers and their wives arriving tonight/this weekend, David arriving Saturday or Sunday (pending weather), and many, many, many meetings this week in order to arrange both my dad’s transition into the old home with proper care, as well as all the logistics about purchasing this new house. Signing occurs on the 9th, and then I will need to arrange movers to pack and unpack belongings, plus, assuming my dad’s still with us, how to get him from one place to the other. As the child with the most flexibility of schedule, responsibility for most of this next phase falls to me.

My brother and sister have both been amazing in their own efforts, but we need to protect them from burnout. I know all about burnout from watching what David has gone through caring for his own parents, and I will not put my siblings through that. We are each taking turns, selecting our own special skill sets to determine who does what. With me having moved … ohhhh, 42 times … I’m the mover/decorator. With me having helped so many people transition to the Otherside, I’m also the walker between worlds and the appropriate one to shoulder much of this time for people. My sister’s local, and my brother will return again as his job permits. He’s already almost out of vacation days!

In terms of timing, my dad has anywhere between weeks to up to six months. I have him reading Dr. Bruce Lipton’s “The Biology of Belief,” which he finds very interesting. My dad has an extremely powerful mind and is very, very receptive to miracles. He reminds everyone how open he is to “Miracle Number 13,” but he also knows he has led a full life and feels the full extent of our love for him.

I’m off to the first of three meetings and many phone calls today. Those of you awaiting reschedules, thanks for your patience. I should have a much better idea next week. We just need to get these logistics in place for my dad to be able to come home.

Much love and gratitude,


The Ever Present Now

I left this as a comment on a different site, but decided to bump it up here:

What’s really cool is that since all time is now, you can actually alter the “past” — from your immediate experience of “this” moment in “time,” shifting the previous experience [of] even extremely traumatic events into ones with less sharp teeth or Velcro claws. You can do this with highly imaginative focus, but some tools and techniques make it easier to do so:

The NOD Rune, for example, helps to lift one out of the trap of linear cause and effect. The Distant Healing Symbol taught in Reiki Level 2 helps to send energy to distant points in space and/or time. A Reiki Healing Attunement, particularly if done over symbols or photographs you associate with that time or event, can radically shift how that event played out and thereby shift your experienced Now. This works really well on individual experiences, but with sufficient imagination and connection, it can also alter more collective trajectories. I’ve witnessed this many times. Artwork, too, can form a powerful bridge among past, present and future. Getting into the creative mindset and consciously selecting symbols designed to trigger your own SUBconscious into desired effects helps to bridge not only time but also create new realities. You can also dance out trauma, disappointment and perceived stuckness. Dancing reallllly moves energy!

However you feel and whatever you believe about the supposed “Moon Matrix,” you can utilize the Moon in reality modifcation. The waxing phase supports any desired increase. The waning phase supports any desired decrease. The New/Dark Moon is perfect for burying things — either to lay them to rest, or like planting seeds. The Full Moon lends extreme power to intentions. This is not all woo-woo stuff. Think of how the Moon moves the tides and bear in mind that we are largely made of water. All tools can be used for good or ill, for creation or destruction. Use them wisely and responsibly, and they pay big dividends in the ever present Now as it radiates back, forward and in ripples throughout “time.”

Awareness of the eternal Now is important, but so is the corollary step — finding empowering ways to incorporate that awareness for healing and regeneration. 🙂

Blue House Update

Some readers, friends and clients knew that September marked the month of moving furniture from David’s parents’ house into the blue house next door, which I’ve taken on as a writing office, guesthouse, living room that provides larger classroom space and community kitchen for potlucks and other gatherings. This move synchronously allows David’s parents to keep some of their sentimental furnishings relatively close to the family now that they’ve moved into higher levels of care, in that I’m repurposing their furniture until one or the other of their children has room to take it on.

Originally, I thought I’d begin the lease September 1, but our landlord kept deciding to make more upgrades, so officially, my lease over there did not begin until September 15. We did, however, begin moving things in on the 8th, since we’d already arranged movers. With two Reiki classes scheduled this past Saturday and Sunday, the fluid time schedule, extra upgrades and some moving-snafu’s-turned-blessings made for quite the crazy past two weeks! People have been asking for updates, but I’ve just been too busy getting things ready for the classes and two student guests who arrived on Friday. Today, I’ve had a chance to catch up on both house and garden updates, which I’ll spread through two posts, so as not to overload anyone’s inbox with too many photos. 🙂

First of all, I love the house! Teaching there felt so natural, expansive, and easy, and all the students and guests just loved it, too. Here’s the dining room/entrance view as of Friday:

dining room

The picture will be hung, instead of propped on a side table, and I’ve got a giant sun with stars to hang to the left, which is actually a piece of metal garden art. Everyone asked if I did the painting. Well, sort of. I decided to have minimal art in the blue house, just letting the colors speak for themselves, but I wanted a few garden and nature inspired pieces. I had this painting in my head to paint but didn’t have any time to do so before the class. A week and a half ago, my friend Kimber took me to Hart City Resale to look at crystals, when lo and behold, I saw the painting in my head hanging on the wall there! “Oh, there you are!” I said, and promptly purchased it, saving me many hours of time and ensuring the painting in my head was present for the first guests and classes.

I particularly love the massive numbers of dining options for students and community gatherings. The dining table easily sat eight of us on Saturday, without even adding in any of its four leaves. The kitchen table provides another 4-8 seats, depending on how many leaves we add to it. We currently have no leaves in either table:


You can see my Vitamix, which I reclaimed from a friend I’d let borrow it for the past 2.5 years, so now guests can make green smoothies or soups without needing to lug along a blender. David loves kitchen gear and has enjoyed some strategic ebay auctions to get the blue house’s kitchen fully outfitted not just for guests but also for very large potlucks and gatherings. We’ve now got a 16-gallon soup pot, which should accommodate some of those enormous green striped cushaw squash still growing like crazy outside. (Photos of those in the garden update post.)

The living room/classroom space has two colors of blue. The lighter for three walls, and the darker blue on the wall with an archway that leads to the orange/red dining room:

blue room

That room will eventually get the blue futon from my previous home office I’m winding down upstairs in our own, live-in home, but due to an unexpected bed construction project, we didn’t have time to move that over. I filled in for the lack of furniture with extra dining chairs, rockers I brought out from my new writing office and temporarily from our house, and lots of strategically placed bouquets. When in doubt, add flowers!


The bathroom received the fewest upgrades, so I added the biggest and brightest bouquet there as a diversion. Mission accomplished! The bathroom won hands down as everyone’s favorite room of the house. Never underestimate flowers and faery magick. 😉

I will not include photos of my new office, because a) it’s my private space that will eventually have its own locked door and b) it’s completely unfinished as of yet! I do love the periwinkle color and the fact that it looks out on the current side garden and soon to be backyard garden of the blue house.

One of the biggest moving snafu’s was that due to a tight, turning staircase, we could not get the full sized box springs upstairs. Instead we needed to bust one apart, throw the other away, and then rebuild or build wooden bed platforms from scratch. Heading up that very tricky stairwell, I opted to hang a second hand quilt over the mini wall at the top:


I had our landlord paint the upstairs in a muted rose tone, which surprised people by just how different, subdued and restful it feels upstairs compared to the bright, open, expansive feel downstairs. Mission accomplished again. 🙂 Apparently, the bed platform construction project paid off. David overbuilt the platforms to support an elephant, possibly two at once, and we already had queen sized foam mattress toppers on the full sized mattresses back from days we used to visit his parents’ house. I switched their full sized sheets to new queen sized sheets and quilts I managed to manifest at very reasonable cost, so that the full sized beds sleep like super comfy almost-queen sized ones.

We added hassock fans and vintage oscilating fans to each room, and with the windows closed, both guests slept extremely well. The guest in the front bedroom slept so well the first night, she decided to turn off the fans and open the window the second night, which finally convinced her that yes, those train horns are freakin’ loud until we get the quiet zone officially registered with the federal government. With the windows closed and fans on, though, our guests could not believe how well they slept. Another mission accomplished.

Here are some photos of the bedrooms. Sorry for the blur, as the muted lighting in there makes things cozy but not so fab for photographing:

front bedroom

Same (front) bedroom, at night with one of the dressers:

front bedroom side

The back bedroom is smaller and only fit one dresser. The other will eventually go downstairs in my office closet:

back bedroom

back bedroom bed

Everyone, including our landlord, loves this back bedroom, because with the slanted ceiling, the quilt, vintage fans, angled bed, and 1950’s furniture, it became a cozy little haven that takes you way back in time. Both bedrooms will eventually get curtains, but again, the unexpected construction projects meant a few details did not happen before the guests arrived. Window blinds worked fine, though.

I’ll post more photos once everything gets completed, but that might be awhile. David, our landlord, and I are all wiped out from the big push to get things guest ready, so the remaining and less urgent details might take awhile to finish. I’ve got a Wheel of the Year Celebration scheduled for Saturday, and we might have family coming in the following weekend, so my office, the laundry room turned seed and indoor garden center and details like light switch plates and screens might take a back seat to some much needed relaxation.

Plus, I’ve got a whole ‘nother yard to get ready for Spring, hundreds of bulbs on the way this Fall, more fruit trees and giant piles of compost and mulch to move before season’s end. I have to say, I look forward to frost so I can finally get back to the two courses I purchased this summer before the blue house became a dramatic opportunity for expansion, a writing office/study, and community gathering space. All good things, but I really do look forward to hunkering down this winter to complete my exciting studies. Stay tuned for the garden update, coming up next and showing the side yard between our house and the blue house, as well as some very in process projects for the blue house yard.

Cheers and blessings!

Two Stories of Divine Intervention

For anyone who sometimes forgets what a miraculous world we live in … two stories from people I’m glad remain on this side of the veil.

Ann Kreilkamp shares her tale of Divine Intervention:

The SWERVE: or how, yesterday, I almost died

which reminded me of this story I posted in 2010:

Premonitions, Divine Intervention, Reiki and Kundalini Yoga saved her life

I’ve had a few close calls myself, but these two posts offer great affirmation of something bigger and benevolent. No matter what kind of situation you find yourself in, know that you and the Mystery are One. Blessed Be!
