4:44 pm was the time frozen on Austin’s stopped wristwatch.

The circumstances were tragic. My young daughter’s best friend, Austin, was hit and killed by a bus while riding his bike home from school. Grabbing at anything to help us move through this time, 444 seemed to me a magical number, so I researched it and found that thousands of angels surround you at 444. They bring a message for you to remember that all is well, all is always well.

In the midst of such loss and pain while losing a precious and so-alive 15 year old child, these words were encouraging reminders that angels surrounded Austin at the moment of death, that there was and is nothing to fear, and that all is well. Unbelieveable.  And yet true. Could I reach to the truth of these words? They became mantras of a sort when breath became too searing to bear. And it did indeed help.

                Then I started seeing 444 on license plates at unusual times. The day Austin would have graduated high school, we followed a car with 444 in the license plate all the way out of the school auditorium and halfway home. Could it really be a coincidence or was Austin communicating with us? The night my husband decided to finally sing the song he had written for Austin, a car zoomed in front of us with a 444 license plate, traveling half of the distance to the open mic event. Smiling, believing a little more, and certainly appreciating Austin’s timeliness and humor, I began to ask him to keep in touch. And, he did!

When the cat Austin left me became critically ill and I had to decide whether to put him to sleep or spend much money I did not have to try and save him, I cried out to Austin to help me decide. Should I let Elijah go, or have costly interventions that could or could not work? On the way to the emergency vet with my final answer I found the car message 444 EJF.  Wait, EJF?!?  Maybe I was getting an actual message this time.  Elijah (what else could EJ mean?) will be fine. EJF. At least that’s how I interpreted it. I spent the money to save his life. Elijah pulled through and is still fine!

The week before my daughter was to fly to London I was feeling nervous about her flying so far for so long. I didn’t think to ask Austin, but I did ask for help to handle my fears and to set energies for her flight. Two minutes later a car whizzed by me on the highway with the message 444 EXW.  I took it to mean excellent wings – great, thanks, Austin. Now I could relax. Lately, I have asked Austin to specify ‘L’ in the letters if the message is for me or ‘B’ if it is for my daugher. The next day, I found a 444 L message, the next week a 444 B.  Last month we searched for my daughter's car and found the license plate next to her 'perfect' car 444 EBQ.  Surprisingly, the deal didn't go through and I was frankly surprised. Why was Austin there?  What could the EBQ mean?  The next morning we started car hunting from scratch again and the words "Enjoy B's Quest" came in.  Of course!  They did study Hero's Journey together.  This is a quest for her to bring in her first car.  And, of course, we did find the same make, model and year, but with many extra features and $1,000 cheaper. We just needed a little patience and trust, allowing for the law of attraction in action!  

As an energy psychologist, I have worked for many years getting Guided messages for my clients. It is wonderful to be able to use methods which incorporate the best of counseling insights and integration with soul guided messages and perspectives. Many times those who transition visit my healing sessions with information for their loved ones. Often healing Masters and ascended Lightbeings come through for clients. Once both Jesus and Mary came for a woman undergoing double masectomy surgery the following day. Jesus came down, silently, to lay hands on Joy’s feet. Mary came in from the side with a white sheet folded over her arms and with the understanding that she would be there, in the hospital room, comforting and soothing Joy both during and after surgery. She really is such a Mom energy.

Another client fostered over 50 children in her life, a service which took a heavy toll upon Judy’s physical health. I saw white flowers growing around her with ‘rain’ falling down. The rain became tears and when I looked up to see who was shedding these tears, I could see the face of Quan Yin. At the time I didn’t know that Judy worked a lot with Quan Yin – and felt very supported in this work with foster children by the Goddess of Compassion. Archangels are often involved with healing work – Michael, especially. Rafael, Uriel, Chamuel… we all have magnificent Beings of Love and Light who interact with us during our critical moments. Wouldn’t it be great to know this for sure and to have clear and easy communications with them – as clear and as easy as we are communicating right now?

I once attended a teleconference about communicating with those who have transitioned offered by a psychology department in a major American university. They built in a quintuple blind study, meaning 5 layers of removal to protect against experimenter bias. This type of study is rather unheard of here in the United States although universities (and governments) around the world are becoming more interested in researching subtle phenomena. During the study on mediumship, the researchers found results significantly beyond chance: mediums were able to get information for clients only knowing a first name. Clients were able to tell which of 5 messages were from their loved ones. Pretty impressive. But what struck me during the discussion was the suggestion that if we could really be sure that our loved ones did indeed survive death, that they are in constant awareness of us and our lives, and that we can communicate with them throughout our entire lives, this knowledge would change life on earth forever.

“Change life on earth forever” - this statement seemed surprising to me at first. Yes, it is wonderful to communicate with loved ones and Beings of Love and Light – but this one facet to change life forever? For everyone? Then I started to feel again the pain of losing so many of my loved ones. The pain of not having said enough, of perhaps saying or doing things we regret our whole lives.

What if we could make things right with those who left. What if we could invite them to share in our happy moments – and know they are there. What if we could gain higher perspectives for our everyday choices. To feel the embrace of unconditional love. To know that we are eternal beings of love and light and that we continue ever onward with our loved ones … that indeed might change life on earth! And it starts with each one of us.

 Have you ever been surprised you haven’t been contacted by a dear loved one who transitioned? Austin’s funny license plate messages are only one way. Others confide in me they (wistfully, wishfully) believe their loved ones communicate when they find a feather, or hear a special song on the radio, or a line jumps out of them from a movie or book, or a bird hops on a fence and looks into their window, or a dragonfly flies by, or they find a penny, or lights blink on and off when their name is mentioned.  The list goes on and on.

Some suggestions if you want to join in the fun:

Communicate to your loved one you want to stay in touch

Ask them for a special signal just for the two fo you

When you get the signal, don’t scour around and try to ‘feel’ their presence – laugh, acknowledge, talk to them, and move on. Remember, they usually have a ‘light’ touch!

Consider learning automatic writing

Consider learning Reiki to send healing energies to them beyond time and space

Follow the gaze of animals and babies

Let music guide you

And dreams

And remember, they are freed from the density of life on earth and therefore they are experiencing tremendous joy and freedom. If you are beaming your loss and sadness, you will have a hard time accessing their new ‘address’. Allow yourself to become more joyful and light-filled to close the gap.


As we continue to move further into higher destinies, both personal and global, remember Who you truly are – magnificent, eternal, love filled, and connected – as Kabir’s delightful reminder of fish in the water, we are always surrounded by the Love we seek!






The Engine Driving Healing Work 

"How does healing work?"

So many people ask this simple question - and the answers are anything but simple. "It's a miracle." "No one knows." "It's like praying or positive thinking - it just works." Scientists and pharmacologists are delving more deeply into the placebo effect. Is it all in our minds? What is the truth behind the mind body connection?

It reminds me of a time when I was in college so many years ago. I read a breathtaking book describing how the earth's continents seemed to fit together like puzzle pieces. There was so much detailed evidence that pointed to this conclusion and it was something that caught my imagination.

But the scientific community dismissed all the 'evidence' as circumstantial and ridiculed the author, and, of course, anyone else who thought this sounded like common sense, calming stating the ‘obvious’ – there is no mechanism that could move continents. All that changed when plates were found underlying continents and subduction from the molten core of the earth was found to be the engine that drove the plates into and around each other, causing our lively, living planet.

" The acceptance of plate tectonics by the scientific community in the 1960's is one of the great events in the history of science. Despite the fact that almost all geologists considered moving continents to be the rankest sort of heresy, when the data began to accumulate they willingly abandoned the teachings of a lifetime in deference to the new information" states Hazen & Trefil in Science Matters (2009).

I don't remember their being so willing to abandon their worldview, since I attended college in the 1970's and it was still heretical. Nevertheless, what's the 'rankest sort of heresy' concerning healing?

Well, I was recently told by a professional colleague that quantum applications of healing are, and I quote, "Gobbledegook". By this he meant shim sham, spiritualism, spooky.

Why is it gobbledegook?

Because this fascinating perspective has not yet made the voyage into the mainstream scientific consciousness, although it has for many healers, especially those of us who claim we work in the quantum! Quantum physicists seem to have a problem with this 'heresy' because they are dealing with mathematical formulas, not applications of their mathematics or their theories.

How can you have practical applications to something that is so mind-bending?

By bending your mind

and stepping into the quantum world, the endless possibilities. I do it. Many healers do it. The quantum world is the engine driving healing work. Is seeing believing? Or is believing seeing? In the quantum, there are infinite possibilities - and intent - and connectedness - to a degree that is truly unbelievable.

Many physicists and leading edge scientists are the metaphysicians of our time. They just don't know it. :-)




The 12 Days …. My True Love Gave To Me!

When I was a little girl, I used to sit on my Grandmother’s lap and sing her a favorite song: The Twelve Days of Christmas. She loved hearing me sing that song, and I loved making her happy, even though I had no idea what exactly a ‘par tridg gina peartree’ was. Being an urban girl, I was even more surprised when I discovered the song was about a bird resembling a pigeon and that pears grew on trees and didn’t come out of cans.

So, for this time of year and for the wonderful birthing energies of 2013, I sing this updated song of love to you. I’m sure you will know Who the True Love is in the song. If you like, start the first day on December 12th  (12/12/12) and add a day until the 23rd.  Then start all over again. We can never love  ourselves enough or honor our path clearly wearing the prism of self-criticism, self-doubt, and unworthiness. Every day, let’s take a minute or two to send love to ourselves and feel the connection to something higher, grander, more exciting and more expansive. Through the quantum, these moments change our DNA and change our life.

Feel free to spend a moment or two on each gift, each day.  Or, like the song, start with day 1, breath in the that gift and then add the 2nd day.  Add a gift a day until you are gifting yourself 12 presents of love in 12 days. It’s a great way to end this cycle and begin the new one, based on more unconditional love for yourself and your unique Hero’s Journey.

How much unconditional love can you breathe in?


On the 1st Day, my True Love gave to me:  Hugs to wake up today.

“I love you, sweetheart. Have wonderful day!”

Spend a few moments waking yourself up to a loving and cherishing Presence. Give yourself Reiki for a few moments or just send a healing bubble of light and connection throughout your entire body before getting out of bed.


On the 2nd Day, my True Love gave to me: A knowing look of love.

Look in the mirror, directly into your eyes.

Breathe in love, breathe out love. “I see who you really are.  I know you have tried to do your best. I love you!”


On the 3rd Day, my True Love gave to me: Love to my miraculous, magnificent form.

Choose one body part, really look at it, and give hugs, appreciation, and love. Start with an area that is neutral for you - how about your elbow, knee, ear, digestion system … change the part of yourself every day.


On the 4th Day, my True Love gave to me: Coloring my world with joy.

Choose a color that feels good for you today. If you don’t have that color – visualize wearing it on your body, in your aura. Feeling deep crimson red today? Or persimmon? Iridescent and opalescent?


On the 5th Day, my True Love gave to me: Sing a song of love.

When you hear a song that resonates with you – sing it to yourself. The more romantic the better! Go for it – use your arms to sing out loud.


On the 6th Day, my True Love gave to me: Karuna Mudra.

Stand straight in mountain pose and then bend over at the waist, letting your arms fall down. Breathe. Slowly straighten up, noticing your spine aligning upward. Move your arms slowly until they are above your head, in a ‘V’ formation. Breathe in the unconditional love and compassion from the Central Sun. Then extend your arms outward, palms facing outward, beaming this love and compassion to all. Finally, bring your hands to your body, one at your heart center, one at your solar plexus, beaming unconditional love and compassion to yourself.


On the 7th Day, my True Love gave to me:  Nurturing and cherishing food.

What one thing would you love to eat today? Something that will make you feel great. Buy it, cook it, eat in the love, health, joy. Feel the sensuous qualities of the food you eat – texture, scent, color. It’s all there as a gift to delight our senses. And it’s a blessing of abundance and prayers answered.


On the 8th Day, my True Love gave to me: Chakra Cleanse.

Just like you clean your teeth and face every morning and night, clean your chakras and energy field. If you know Reiki, remember to do the Power Symbol on your chakras. Or, hold your hand over each one and send light and love to each chakra, giving them a little spin too. Chakras are located: base of torso, just below your navel, solar plexus, heart, throat, forehead, crown of head – and also add below your feet and as far above your head as you can reach.


On the 9th Day, my True Love gave to me: Opening Angel Wings.

Put your right hand on your left shoulder and fluff out your wings. Do the same with your left hand on your right shoulder. How do they look? Put both your arms up and fluff up and out!  Great to do with a little essential oil – especially White Angelica or Frankincense. Remember who you truly are!


On the 10th Day, my True Love gave to me:  Affirmation of Worth and Connection.

“I am Blessed to walk this Earth, and the Earth is Blessed that I walk upon it!”

Take a walk and say this affirmation, sing the affirmation, dance the affirmation. And really feel what it feels like to be blessed to be alive at this time in history. And what it feels like that the very Earth and everyone on it are blessed that you are here!


On the 11th Day, my True Love gave to me: Hugs to sleep tonight.

“Good night sweetheart. You had such a great day today, doing the best of what you do best. There’s always another day to do more. You did enough today. More than enough. You are so precious and I love you always. There is time after time after time – whatever you want, you have.”


On the 12th Day, my True Love gave to me: Visions of bliss dance in our heads.

Send your visions of love and light to others around the world. What is on your mind today? Send love to yourself, your challenges, your sorrows, your friends, and then send it up higher to the crystalline grid around the earth so that it is accessible to others who are in similar circumstances or to those who are in even worse circumstances than the one you are in.

Feel the connection to all those who are working around the world to bring in this cycle of abundance, freedom, tolerance, joy, peace, love, health, joy,,,,,

Join with all the Lightworkers around the world, through time and space, who are connecting to bridge in this glorious time!   



The Awakening Gap

As beings who love peak experiences, we all have known the joy of transcending our normal lives. Think of the times that you have walked in nature and almost cried at the beauty that is there; a sunset - so rich and colorful...or perhaps you reached a deep state of communion through Reiki, through meditation, or with another spiritual experience - a presence so rich and so real. In awakening experiences, the world becomes more real and beautiful, and an atmosphere of harmony seems to fill our surroundings. We feel serene and whole inside, and our normal problems and worries seem to fade into insignificance.

Of course, there are ebbs and flows of life. While each day offers a possibility of connection and communion with something truly divine, the eventual realization is one of, "OK, now my feet are back on he ground... now what?" We all have a practical side; a left brain; the thinker; the logical one, and our job as evolving human beings is to dance between both worlds - the mystical and the practical. How do we come to terms with our true nature? Yes, we are divine, and yet, yes, we are walking planet Earth, taking care of our day to day matters, hopefully in service to others.

Peak experiences are for many, so deep and so powerful, that we do not wish to leave them. The energy and vibration of "connection" feels so good - the peace we feel is true and within us! Alternatively, there is our present state - our health, our financial condition, and our relationships... when we look at the 'present', and compare it to the 'connection', we can perceive a gap - an awakening gap. This is the difference between the vision we hold and the place where we currently are. The vibration of 'where we are' is so strong, that it takes time, and effort, and many times the help of counselors and teachers - to navigate the gap.

Our answer for this paradox lies in knowing that we have what it takes to improve our lives. Our vision remains clear and our unique future we are creating. The task at hand is to tune into our creativity, our expression and our purpose. Use your heart - love what you do... Our work is to blend, grow and to synthesize. Practice the tools you have acquired and acquire new ones if you need them. Use your talents for the work of the Spirit - apply what you have learned - keep on learning... ask for guidance, and above all, as our good friends Abraham always say, "Don't tell it like it is, tell it like you want it to be".

Do this a little bit every day, and the gap gets smaller.
