Writing My Joyful Life on the Road!
I’ve been teaching workshops on how to write your joyful life for awhile now. I believe we are in a period of time where we can create a new movie script for our experiences by using the concepts of quantum physics and other spiritual principles. The energies of this time make it easier to co-create with the Divine and to choose what belief structure you want to live from. I have been diligently clearing limiting beliefs that pull me away from my life purpose and am now ready to head off into my new “movie.” I have been working with a shamanic practitioner and I am in the process of going through training with these principles. Many of them are things I’ve stumbled upon through my own spiritual work. As I’ve worked with these concepts, I have come to realize how much I resonate with the shamanic archetype. I’m realizing that living close to the earth, living simply, sustainably, and in alignment with the flow of nature and my Spirit is how I need to exist. This has led to a call to go on a vision quest of sorts. Starting this spring, I’m heading off on a journey around the medicine wheel to see what happens when I put these concepts into practice. I’m planning to be sharing and teaching about what I learn through social media, sessions by phone, and other in person and virtual events, as well as writing a book about the experience. I’ll be traveling and living in wild places as much as possible, offering wilderness workshops, joyful life coaching sessions, along with continuing my empowerment readings and classes and participating at shows along the way. The purpose will be to learn and teach about how we can all start living from love, not fear, and also to build a community of people where resources and experiences can be shared to support the process.
The Birth of Spirit Earth LLC
Last summer, I had a life changing experience when my son, Jacob, and his friend Ryan, joined me on a week-long spiritual retreat with Dr. Jaap Van Etten. The three of us instantly bonded and started having powerful spiritual experiences. This led to the inspiration to go into business together to create a community and offer services that brought the principles of living a spiritual life into the physical experience of living close to the earth. Ryan and Jacob are both joining me on my joyful life quest and we will be working together to grow Spirit Earth to be a place to inspire and empower you on your own quest to live your most joyful life.
Would you like to join us?
While I know it isn’t realistic to have you call come with us physically (though we hope to connect with some of you on the road!), I would love to have you come along virtually! For the first part of our journey, Ryan and I are off with our camping gear out west where we will be working with the earth energy centers, connecting with wild places, learning and teaching about what we learn. Jacob will be joining us at various stops along the way and also continuing to learn and teach from Colorado as well. We will be sharing videos, audio clips, and writings filled with what we are experiencing and learning, all including practical suggestions on how they can help you live a joyful life in your own world. We are also looking for business owners who offer services and products that support people in choosing from their heart, not fear to be included on our website.

Spring is finally here and it is a great time to set new intentions for the seeds you wish to grow this month! The New Moon Recorded reading is an option that allows you to get a personalized message, as well as benefit from the full experience offered to the whole group. Readings are done anonymously (you’ll be told what reading you are) and all personal messages have gifts for everyone listening.
According to this month’s forecast from the Power Path blog, we can expect this from the new moon this month:
“April 7: New Moon is Thursday, April 7 at 5:25 AM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT). A good time to launch just about anything as the energy of this moon is one with a great deal of power. Watch the aggression. If it comes from another, do not take it personally. Things could be a bit unstable and unsettled today so take some time to ground and center yourselves as well as to set some clear intentions.”
For this month’s recorded reading, I’ll be invoking support from your Angels and Guides to help you make the most of this powerful New Moon.
You can learn more and sign up here: New Moon Readings
The last day to register is APRIL 6th. The recorded reading will be sent out on Thursday April 7th.

Happy New Year! I hope you are all having a great start to 2016! I’m in the middle of some big life changes and I know many of you are as well. Ending one thing and starting another can be emotionally challenging, but it also brings lots of gifts! My plans for a new business venture, Spirit Earth LLC, are underway! I’ll be sharing more on that by the end of the month and will have some exciting new offerings to share with you! We are truly moving into the new movie and this month gives us a chance to connect to who we want to be and how we want to experience this new adventure. Exciting times!
This month’s New Moon Recorded Reading is a great chance to connect with your intentions for the new coming in! Registration ends Friday (January 8th). The recording will be sent out on Saturday. New Moon readings are recorded and offer personalized messages as well as guidance for the group as the whole on how to make the most of the month ahead. Readings are done anonymously (you’ll be told which reading you are). This offers the benefits of a longer reading at the cost of a 15 minute session.

Here is an excerpt from the Power Path blog on the New Moon for this month:
“January 9: New Moon is Saturday, January 9 at 6:30PM Mountain Time (MST). An excellent time to focus on RESET. If you have not already done so, this is also a good time to focus on your intentions for the year or revisit the ones you anchored over the New Year for refinements and changes. You may be surprised at how quickly some of them may manifest if you are really clear about what you want and it comes from essence and your heart.
Due to the influences right at this time, you may feel some energy around intention at a standstill. It is simply at a still point gathering power from love, beauty, essence connection, community, prayer, joy, gratitude and awe. You can always help it along by feeding it this positive fuel.”
I asked for a January New Moon Grace card message from the deck by Cheryl Richardson for all of you. Two cards fell out:
“Perception: See the past through the lens of grace. All that occurs is designed to support our spiritual evolution.”
Rest: Take a mental break. A quiet mind has direct access to wisdom and insight.”
So what does this mean? I feel this month we are being asked to let go of our mental story line and shift into listening and following our spirit. What does your heart and body tell you? Listening to those sources and letting yourself flow into what you feel open to is the way to go this month. Let the mental self take a rest and trust that when it is needed, you can call it back into action!
Sending love and hugs to all!
The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions to manifest your goals for the month ahead! Each month, I offer a recorded reading to provide guidance and insight. The readings include a personalized message (done anonymously) along with energy balancing and insights for the group as a whole. To register for this last New Moon reading for 2015, sign up by 12/10. The reading is $25/member or $30/non-members. To learn more and register: New Moon Readings
Here is a forecast for the New Moon from the Power Path Blog:
“December 11: New Moon is Friday, December 11 at 3:30AM Mountain Time (MT). This New Moon is the perfect opportunity to reset, to pray, to set intentions and to be involved in community in a way that is meaningful. It is important to look ahead instead of looking back. This new moon also supports a creative container for personal expression. There is a desire to be heard, not in an ego way but in an authentic yearning to be your unique contribution in this life.
If you allow it, your personal medicine has the potential to be seen by others and nurtured by spirit. Set an intention and say some prayers today for that to manifest.”
I asked for a message for the New Moon this month and two cards fell out of the Grace cards by Cheryl Richardson. They are:
Watch – “Watch for a miracle. Coincidences are Divinely inspired moments designed to remind us that a Higher Power is guiding our lives.”
Gratitude – “Be thankful. A grateful heart is like a magnet drawing toward it a wealth of abundance.”
Sending love and Happy New Moon wishes for you!

Thanksgiving is here in the United States and Christmas is right around the corner. While this can be a joyous time of year, it can also be challenging. This year, we also have a full moon in Gemini on the day before Thanksgiving which can amp up the emotions. That is why I thought it might be helpful to share a new technique for getting yourself in a state of love before heading into family gatherings.
The process below can help you reconnect with a loved one. You can do this on your own or if the other person is interested, you can go through the process together. Here are the steps:
Steps to Strengthen the Bond
Physical Focus: What are your top five favorite memories of physical activities or experiences you have had with this person? You might remember a favorite trip, nature walks, or any other joyous interacting you have experienced.
Emotional Focus: What are your top five favorite memories of emotional bonding with the person? Gary Chapman identifies five different love languages – Touch, Words of Appreciation, Acts of Service, Gift Giving, and Quality Time. Consider these different categories to find your favorite top five.
Spiritual Focus: What are your top five favorite spiritual experiences with this person? Remember, this doesn’t have to be religious (though it can be). Any experience where you felt inspired and uplifted fits here.
Gratitude: What are five reasons you are grateful for this person in your life? You can add more to this list if you are struggling to feel close. The more you can come up with and really let yourself feel, the easier it will be to feel close again.
This process works best if you let yourself fully remember the experience rather than just make a list. You could even use this process with prior holidays focusing on the family gatherings as a whole!
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!
With much love and gratitude,

The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions for what you wish to create in your life. Here is an excerpt from the Power Path November Forecast on this month’s New Moon:
“November 11: The New Moon is Wednesday November 11, at 10:48 AM MST, Mountain Standard Time. Watch for cranky irritation around any pressure you feel from others, yourself or your environment. Take a moment around this new moon for yourself and focus on something that needs completion. Cranky energy can always be transformed into a fiery inspiration that fuels action. Be physically active today and do something physical that expands your space, clears something out and provides you with an opportunity to take action towards something you desire.”

Have you ever experienced a time when your heart says one thing but your head says something else? Do you listen to your head or your heart?
While we have all seen the benefits of following our hearts, sometimes it is a hard thing to do. We look at what is happening around us and our mind urges us to take action and do something so we stay safe and don’t get hurt. This last week, I had one of those times when I ignored what my heart was saying and reacted to what was happening on the surface. I started to create a story in my head to explain the outer circumstances – a story that made me feel worse not better – and soon had myself completely stressed out! When the dust finally settled and I found out what had really been going on, I discovered that all my worry had been over nothing at all!
I’m guessing most of you have had something like that happen to you too. The mind would rather make something up to believe in rather than sit in “I don’t know.” To save us all future drama, I vote we start letting a different part lead us. Instead of letting our intellect determine what is going on, let’s start listening to our spiritual center – our heart.
So what does that mean exactly? For me, it means that I need to start pausing before reacting emotionally to what is happening in my world. I need to check in with my higher self – with my heart – and ask to be shown what is happening from a spiritual point of view. From this vantage point, I can then choose how to respond and know that the response will be coming from a much more peaceful and balanced space.
Below are a few suggestions on how you can connect to your heart’s wisdom and see from this spiritual point of view:
Be curious: I’ve found that if I look at what is going on from a curious point of view instead of a frightened viewpoint, I am able to detach more from what is happening. Imagine you are a scientist collecting information about the subject at hand. What details are you noticing? What subtleties are being overlooked?
Take three deep breaths and ask for Guidance. Pausing before we react gives time for us to process all of what we are experiencing. As we take three deep breaths and ask for Spiritual Input, we create a distance between ourselves and what is happening. This space can give us the detachment we need to see through the eyes of our heart into the true picture.
Pay attention to your body. I have noticed when I start to believe something that isn’t true, my body becomes tense. If the energy isn’t flowing in your system, it is a clear message from the deeper part of yourself that something which is occurring isn’t coming from love and truth. Even if you don’t know exactly what is false, trust that you don’t have a clear picture if your body is reacting adversely.
Laugh and/or smile. When we laugh and smile, it sends a message to our system that we are safe and well. Even if we aren’t feeling that way in the moment, moving our focus to the state of joy brings us in touch with our heart. After a few moments of laughing, then ask your Angels to help you see the truth of what is going on from that higher viewpoint. From this lighter space, you may find the circumstances look much different.
Trust and have faith. Having faith in the Divine and our Spiritual Support Team is really easy when things are going well. It is when things seem to be heading in a direction we don’t like that it is more difficult to keep the faith. Try asking yourself if you are choosing from love or fear. Also, remind yourself of your overall intention. Do you have an intention in place to be Divinely guided in all you think, say, and do? Are you choosing to create a life you love? If so, then know that what is going on must be part of what you are experiencing. Trust. Believe that you are loved and supported. Watch for the signs that miracles are unfolding for you.

As we continue going through the transformation we are all in the midst of, it can sometimes feel like we aren’t making any progress at all. We find ourselves struggling to stay positive and slipping back into old habits that don’t enrich us or feed our souls. Our plans seem to go sideways and we begin to wonder if we are off our path. This makes it tough to keep having faith.
I went through a bout of this recently with my Hocking Hills retreat weekend. I was excited to share one of my favorite places with a group of 10 lovely women and had high hopes for a weekend filled with fun. The Universe, though, had other plans.
The trip started out with the women I was driving with showing up as fire trucks came swooping in to try to put out a house fire next door. The neighbor had left a pot on and gone somewhere and smoke had been billowing out from under her garage door. We drove off to the sound of sirens wailing. Perhaps I should have taken that as a sign!
The next challenge happened at Ash Cave where we were meeting the rest of our group for the first hike of the weekend. We got out of the car, only to discover that the keys had been locked inside! With no cell service in the area, this led to a group heading off to find somewhere they could get a call through, delaying our plans by a couple of hours. In the midst of that, one of the participants discovered that her husband had been in a car accident. Thankfully, he was okay, but she was understandably concerned and frustrated that communication was so challenging without cell reception.
That night, I decided to sleep outside on the back porch. Normally, I can’t get enough of being outside, so this would have been fun. On this occasion, I ended up hardly sleeping at all and spending a lot of time wondering if the raccoons that were running around over my head on the upstairs porch were going to come down and discover me. Needless to say, I was very tired when morning finally came.
The next challenge, which was really the tipping point for me, occurred with stairs. One of the women fell down the stairs (and was thankfully okay) about the time that I had my own stair catastrophe. I was on my way downstairs with my heavy bag full of spiritual tools and realized it was silly to carry them down there as I would just have to bring them back up later. I turned to ask one of the women who was on her way up to take it back up with her. She took the bag from me, lost her balance, and bumped a picture on the wall. With a call of warning to me to watch out, I turned and looked up, only to get hit right in the left eye. All I could think of was that I was going to be blind as it felt like the heavy picture had hit directly on my physical eye. Thankfully, after doing a series of Bodytalk Fast Aid several times, I discovered I could still see and only had a black eye. The shock and pain of this, though, opened the floodgates for me and all the repressed emotions from the last month of shifts and changes came welling up and pouring out.
Thankfully, two of the women who were with me were people I’ve known a long time and both are gifted intuitive healers in their own right. They were both wonderful! They helped me figure out what was happening from a spiritual point of view and provided a lot of much-needed comfort and love. After that, a group of us were guided to do an energy clearing with one of the participants which offered a beautiful healing for us all. That changed the course of the weekend – bringing great healing and transformation for everyone, though not in the format I had expected.
So what did I learn from all of this? Here are a few insights that hopefully will help you through your own challenges…
- We don’t have to do this alone. Many of us have spent most of our life feeling that it was our job to help and support others. We are much more comfortable being the givers instead of the receivers. This experience brought me the gift of seeing I don’t have to go through these changes alone. I had felt responsible for providing all the support on the weekend and had it brought home to me again that my job isn’t to have it all together. My job is to be real and to let God work through me. My own struggles offered a way for the others to step into empowerment with their own gifts. They gained confidence in what they have to offer and I received the blessing of their wisdom and kindness.
- Being honest, even when it makes you feel vulnerable, is healing and empowering. I’ve spent a lot of my life as someone who is highly sensitive trying to protect my vulnerability. This experience (and some others along the way) reminded me that being vulnerable and sharing from the heart is actual one of my greatest strengths. By being willing to be honest about what I was going through and in asking for help, I received what I needed and also allowed others to get what they needed by being able to share their own wisdom and love. Others felt safe to share their struggles and we found a lot of common themes in what we were experiencing which brought us all comfort and support.
- Staying in your North Node is vital. I have talked about Jan Spiller’s book, Astrology of the Soul with pretty much everyone I have worked with over the years. This book offers a blueprint for your spiritual path and the traits that you are developing in this lifetime. It provides valuable information to help you see your challenges and what you are trying to learn. My North Node is Aries and my job is to lead and act by following my own inspirations and needs. My astrological sun sign is Capricorn whose keynote is “to teach” so these two focuses require me to follow what I’m inspired to learn and to teach what I discover. With this experience, I was slipping into my old patterns and focusing on what I thought others needed to learn. The Universe quickly corrected me by bringing me back to my path of self-discovery and self-love and in doing this allowed everyone to learn what they needed to.
- We are Divinely Guided. I have had so many magical experiences in my life and so much evidence has been provided about how well and truly loved I am by the Spiritual Guides who walk with me. They are truly phenomenal! Even in the midst of the challenges I faced, I felt protected, loved and cared for. The weekend didn’t go as I had planned, but it did provide me exactly what I needed to move into my joy and step fully into my true self. My Team brought me support in the form of wonderful friends, synchronistic events, and a weekend that was designed to give me time with small groups of people instead of the larger group focus I had planned. It truly was a magical weekend in so many ways and continues to bring me blessings as I process all that occurred.
- Everything thing always works out for me in ways I enjoy. I’ve been saying this statement a lot lately and even though I didn’t “enjoy” some of what happened over the weekend, I do see that I enjoyed the results and how much better I felt after the experience. Even my eye injury healed quickly. I also realized that the more I stay centered in this belief – continuing to affirm that I am a magical being, living in a magical Universe, and everything always works out for me in ways I enjoy, the more that becomes my truth.
Finally, I would like to say a big thank you to the amazing women I had the gift of spending the weekend with. I am so grateful for all of you and for your willingness to choose to go through transformation at such a deep and profound level with each other. I love you all!
Sending much love and hugs to everyone else too!
