Good Vibes Gatherings
As the Good Vibes Gatherings are shaping up, I am reminded to sit still and listen. It is in the listening that I hear spirit.
As I embarked upon this last weekend I knew it might be challenging. It has been awhile since I’ve done group gatherings outside of the Orange County Healing Center, other than down the street at BOTI studio (If you haven’t gone to check them out, Google what they are up to) and I wasn’t sure what to expect.
At the OC Yoga festival, I found a lovely group of open-minded individuals who were ready to step beyond their minds and share their hearts. The one message that truly stood out to me was… how we give our power away… the power of love…
Since I am teaching to love yourself as you love another, I posed this question, “How do you show your love to another?” What struck me hard was this answer, by more than one person, “I try to make them feel special, or worthy…like they are enough.
I cannot tell you how many relationships I was in where I would see a man’s potential, who he could be, rather than who he was. I poured my love into him hoping he would change. Of course this never worked, and I was left with feelings of disappointment or anger, and feelings of not being good enough. Or, even friendships where I was always giving, left with the feeling of being taken advantage of. Once I learned to trust and love myself more these types of relationship’s changed.
After everyone shared, I came back to this point, “If we do not have feelings of worthiness ourselves…if we do not know how special we are… if we cannot feel our own love, this love we pour into others… how can we ever attract it?”
The day after the festival I went to Whittier to hold the next Gathering. Again, I was a bit nervous, as I did not know the type of folks that would come. After all, this was in a restaurant in downtown Whittier! If you haven’t been to the Modern Shaman Kitchen on Greenleaf, you are missing out! It’s totally VEGAN! In WHIITER!!! And they happen to be a couple of groovy people I met many years ago when I did an opening ceremony for a friend in Laguna.
THIS GROUP!!! OMG!!!
People who I’ve never met before open to a group healing (Which, BTW, I had no idea I was doing. I had a whole other class prepared for them). They bared their souls with one another. With open hearts they wanted to feel the shift… and they did. Just like the group Saturday, these loving hearts were ready to LOVE THEMSELVES MORE! The energy was beautiful and we all left glowing.
That morning, before the Whittier gathering, a friend in Durango, CO. reached out. She wanted me to come and bless her land and have a gathering around her medicine wheel. We had been talking about me coming for a couple of years and this
time I said yes! On August 11th, I will be with a whole new group of souls ready to love and open up their hearts to the infinite wisdom within.
When we fall more in love with ourselves, our world will change.
I look forward to being with you in ceremony soon…

Crystal Star-lite Rites Healing
This is an excerpt from Awakening Code Radio Show in Laguna Beach.
Imagine a crystal deep within the earth. This crystal lite and crystalline structure is the heartbeat of Pachamama – Mother Earth and connects you to your divine right to be here on earth in the full expression of who you are. When you illuminate this beautiful healing light all the way through your body and out of the top of your head, into your higher self and the stars, you connect with the highest vibrational light.
Bring that light through your body and into the earth core crystal and shoot it back up again.
By doing this energy flush you release old stuck energy and become open to recieve your inner wisdom and gifts. When you are finished disconnect from the earth crystal and bring this light up into your solar plexus, anchor it in and breathe. Trust your gut. This is your second brain. Now, disconnect from the star and bring that energy through your higher self; aligning your spirit higher. Anchor that into your first brain; 3rd eye. Trust your intuition. Now move some of that energy from both of those intuitive centers into your heart. When you always come from a place of love for yourself first these intuitive centers grow.
Connect to the Golden Light of the Sun
Imagine the golden light of the sun turning into liquid gold and pouring through your higher self and into the top of your head. Imagine warm golden liquid life force energy from the sun, re-imprinting and reweaving your luminous energy field Feel the warm golden energy throughout your body, awakening every single cell of your being, bringing total health and wellness throughout your body, pouring warm liquid gold out of your fingers and your toes. Feel healed in every fiber of your being.
Creator of all that is, thank you thank you, thank you for this beautiful healing for myself. Thank you for giving me crystal, clear, clarity as I move forward on my path. I know I am a being of light and I am grateful to be alive.
And so it is.
For years I have been teaching the Crystal Star-lite rites as an activation for my clients divine right to be here on the planet at this time in the full expression of they are. It is my honor and privilege to share these rites with you.
Many blessings on your journey of light and love.

Tune In and TRUST…
Hello tribe! Friday’s fire was filled with magic, all of those in attendance were heart-filled! Being the first fire of 2017, it meant so much to be in community and to be able to sit in ceremony.
Remember to find ceremony in everything you do…
Set intentions and believe they will manifest in time. Stay tuned-in to yourself and SHINE! Take a look at my calendar as I have many things going on in the near future.
Trusting in Yourself
Are you the type of person who has always trusted yourself? Then this is not the article for you. I am here to speak to those like myself, those people who gave their power away and trusted everyone BUT themselves. Those of us that thought everyone else’s opinions were better than their own.
For many years I was a victim. I placed myself in situations where others controlled my life. I felt I always made bad decisions and so I stopped making them. I would ask at least 3, if not more people what I should do and then I would pick the one that sounded best.
In 1991 I began to step into my power and went back to school. This was not easy. As a single mother of 3 trying to manage was incredibly difficult, but I did it. Something inside of me was crying out to be heard, and although I did not know it at the time, this was the beginning of my spiritual awakening.
I read books on positive affirmations, and made new choices in the way I thought about myself, I did a lot of writing. I even burned some of it not knowing at the time it was a shamanic tool for release. I began to feel better, but I still did not trust my decision making process. No one had ever talked to me about my intuition or how to access it.
In 2006, my whole world changed. As I entered the world of Shamanism I found I was a feeler healer, as I know many of us are. Learning how to trust my intuition became a daily practice. I would make decisions based on how I felt. If I was wrong, I would not beat myself up, I would simply say, “That was a lesson”. Each lesson helped me to gain a better understanding of myself and how I worked.
I began treating myself like my own best friend. I spoke kindly about myself and to myself, and became hyper aware of my thoughts, words and actions. I became totally honest with everyone around me, most of all myself.
Once you become totally honest with yourself and take inventory of your life you can look around and see what is no longer working for you. In today’s world there are so many choices, and so much technology, we are getting further and further way from whom we really are.
Find yourself in the moment and ask yourself what truly makes you happy. Is it the new gadget, app, bigger house, or car? Are you looking outside of yourself to find happiness?
We can only truly be happy when we go inside ourselves and look around. Take a moment and breathe. Listen to your mind. What is the one thing you worry about the most? This is the thing you are giving your power away to. Stop giving it power. Breathe and shift your consciousness. Only you have the power to change your mind. The moment you decided to trust yourself, and become more conscious in your everyday living, the happier you will become.
Take stock of your life and how you want to live it. Clear out the clutter and get back to the basics. YOU are the most important person… YES you! You are the only one who can provide yourself with the comfort and care you deserve.
Once we start being kind to ourselves our intuition grows and we make decisions based on what’s best for us.
Make a commitment to yourself. Write a contract to be more loving, honest and compassionate with yourself. Those around you may have a hard time with the new you, but the real friends will stay around and admire your personal growth.
Trusting ourselves and teaching our children to do the same will grow a generation of leaders and our world will be a better place to live.
