Here in NM we just went into a ‘Stay At Home’ order that started this morning. Other states and cities have had this in place already, and the stress and anxiety, as well as boredom for those who are used to being social butterflies, is beginning to show.
The beautiful thing about the energy work I do is that I can do it from my home and you can stay in your home, and the effects are still felt. A couple weeks ago I sent light to my mom for her foot, which had been swollen and in pain for quite a while. As you may remember from the testimonials here on the site, she doesn’t believe in what I do in theory, but she does believe in the results. She sent me a brief email day-before-yesterday saying, “I forgot to mention that since you did your ooeeooee thing, my foot hardly hurts at all. Just realized that last night. It’s still a bit swollen but otherwise really good. Weird. LOL”.
I love my mom. Lol!
Times are hard, and they’re going to get harder, so I’ve dropped the fees for my work, hoping that you’ll still find it in your heart to shoot me a donation to help with my bills and rent, but it’s not a requirement for having a session.
It would be really nice, though. 🙂
All you have to do is contact me, I’ll get back to you, and we’ll set up a time for your session. If you’d like to make a donation, click here and PayPal does the rest!
Thank you for allowing me to be of help! And thank you ahead of time for any donations. 🙂
Well, my attempt at a 30-day digital detox didn’t last for than a moment; I’m at high risk concerning the virus and I couldn’t step away from the news and how things are going worldwide and here in NM. This is me (not literally) reading Twitter and the news daily:
Add to that the loss of income, and issues with social distancing, and I’ve been really, really stressed. I keep wanting to offer any and every one Heart’s Peace Healing sessions, but people seem to feel that others deserve it more than they, or that it’s only for serious issues. And frankly, it feels wrong to charge for the sessions knowing a huge, huge portion of people are in the same check-to-check life, or are now without an income, too. It’s a bit of a Catch-22, ya know?
There’s that curse, “May you live in interesting times”, and boy, are we ever. All we can do is support, encourage, and listen to each other (from a distance). One of my favorite Firefly quotes is this:
Tracey: “When you can’t run, you crawl. And when you can’t crawl, when you can’t do that … “ Zoe: ” … you find someone to carry you.”
Here it came in like a lamb; sunny, chilly, some clouds, and finally a few sprinkles. Mild. Which makes me wonder how the end of the month is going to be. 🙂
Yesterday I was wandering through links, going from one topic to another, and I came across this blog post by Laura McKowen about Digital Minimalism. Now anyone who has followed me for any length of time knows how I feel about social media overwhelm, so that subject jumped out and grabbed me. The Kindle book she mentions was $1.99, so I bought it and began reading.
There’s just too much to say about this book, so I recommend what she does: read it. And you might want to download an app called Moment, it tracks how log you spend staring at your device’s screen.
The basic jist of the book is to take a 30-day detox from all non-essential technology. Including video games, Netflix, etc. And then making a plan to use the essential ones in a more time-efficient manner. He even talks about how people who get online to read the news or news sites can do so without eating hours of their day.
The key during the detox is to do other things. Don’t just sit around, thinking about what’s going online. No, resume hobbies you’d dropped when your smartphone seemingly became glued to your hand, go for walks, play with your children uninterrupted, read books (offline if you use a Kindle or other ebook reader), learn to knit, write actual letters (my plan), etc… The goal is to fill your life with activities like you used to before the internet. And then when the 30 days are up, decide what you really, really want to add back, and consider why; does it add value to your day, your life? If Twitter drives you nuts, why do you want to jump back on? If scrolling through staged photos on Insta depresses you in the end, why download it again? For your business, what sites do you feel good using, and do they add to your business? This all needs to be considered before diving back into the internet. And, as he says, you may find that less definitely is more. McKowen herself has a list of all the accounts she deleted, and it’s not small. Nor were the number of followers on them. But she chose what aligns best with her values.
What is all this leading to? Yeah, you knew it. 🙂 My birthday is the 9th, next Monday, so beginning then I won’t anywhere but here, the newsletter, and email for 30 days. I want my focus to be my energy work, not falling into YouTube rabbit holes, or looking at ridiculously gorgeous bujo pics, or raging at what’s going on in the world for hours and hours. I need a break. That means on the desktop, too. I can only log into the sites I’ve chosen, once a day, no more. I’ve removed all apps except Signal from my phone (really!) and I know Twitter is going to be really, really difficult for me to give up, but it’s gone from my phone and tablet and promised myself that I won’t download it during the 30 days. Haven’t decided where or how I’ll get news, but I’ll figure it out before then.
If you were to do this, what technologies do you consider vital? Would you be able to do a 30-day detox? Do you want to play along?
And as always, I’m available for distance Heart’s Peace Healing sessions! They are what brings my life joy, no question about it. Your feedback absolutely makes my day, sometimes my week! So please, don’t hesitate to purchase a session, or mention my work to that friend you have with fibro or chronic migraines; I can’t cure them, but I can help them feel better. And honestly, that means a lot when chronic pain is your life.
Every now and again someone asks me how I became a lightworker, and it occurred to me that I hadn’t told the story here, where it should be.
I worked on-and-off in a metaphysical store since the late 90’s, and almost every time I had a card reading I was told, “you are a healer.” I thought they were all a bit bonkers, honestly, because there wasn’t, in my mind, anything healing about me. I know my flaws, and they are many. 🙂
Move on forward to fall of 2009, and a friend of the store was in town. He was at a bit of a crossroads and had a reading with my friend Christina. Afterwards we were discussing the fact that she told him he needed to begin teaching, and I mentioned the healer thing. “Oh, you definitely are!” he pronounced without hesitation, and I was like, fine, if this dude I kind of know but not really thinks that, what the hey.
The next day’s reader, the ever-amazing Darlene Costello, came in, hobbling a bit, and mentioned that she’d messed up her knee. I literally, I kid you not, had an argument in my head, “go, ask her!”, “no, what if it doesn’t work?”, “GO ASK HER”, “but…”, “GO” for about 10 minutes. I finally gave in, asked if I could see if I might help her knee feel better and she enthusiastically agreed.
All I did was kneel in front of her, put my hands on her knee, and almost immediately she began to tell me that she saw “a purple light, in waves, like a skier going down a mountain, that swish-swish movement”, and key and some other things I forgot to write down. We were interrupted by a customer maybe 5 minutes into it, and once the customer left she told me that it “feels like a there’s a huge bandage around my knee, supporting it” and that the pain was almost gone.
Well, as you can imagine, this fired me up no end. The feedback was astonishing and I wanted to see what else could happen. I began asking if I could help just about anyone who mentioned being in pain, and feedback ranged from, “a warm poker shooting up my spine” from my friend Donna who has back and hip problems, to “it’s like little dwarves were working on my back, then the light jumped from my back, over my head, to my heart chakra”, or “lightning bolts in my liver”, and one of my favorites from Beth Pixley, “it felt like angel wings inside, very soft”.
There was one woman I distinctly remember because she made me laugh so much. She and a friend came in and she was bemoaning the fact that she couldn’t smell the incense or candles because her sinuses were clogged. So I asked. And within minutes she almost yelled, “I can smell!!!” and gave me the best tip I’ve ever received.
I also once had a woman ask if I would go to Texas with her on her vacation because her back felt so much better after just a few minutes of light.
So now, dear readers, you know how and why I became a lightworker. 🙂 I hope you will allow me to be of service to you, too, and help you feel better in some way.
This morning I was reading through a notebook I have, filled with scribbles and quotes and manifestos, all relating to my energy-shifting work. Some ideas popped into my head, but I got a bit overwhelmed and decided to check Twitter.
I have two accounts, one public, and every single time I read that one, my head wants to explode with regards to what is going on in this country and how excellently someone’s diversionary tactics are working. People miss the true stories in the flurry.
Every day there are more and more horrors being perpetrated without repercussions, climate change is beyond ignoring, and every single one of us, even those who try to ignore it all, are affected.
All this stress and anxiety is wearing on us, bit by bit, and sometimes it feels as if there’s no way to deal with it.
I can help. No, I can’t fix the current administration, nor can I cure your chronic anxiety or depression, but I can give you a bit of relief for a while.
You don’t have to drive anywhere (though I would recommend not driving during your session), wear anything special, stop what you’re doing (you can, obviously, if you like)…heck, you don’t even have to believe in energetic shifting! No matter what you do or believe, it always help you in some way; sometimes in big, obvious ways, and sometimes in light, subtle ways (check out my Testimonials page to see how it has affected people).
30-minute sessions are $30. We can go longer if you’d like, or if you really want a deep shift, there’s my favorite session, Dare the Possibilities (this one tends to put people to sleep for the deep healing boost).
All you need to do is make your payment here (put your email address in the notes just in case, please!), and I’ll contact you within 24 hours and we’ll set up a time! Easy-peasy. 🙂
In my last blog post I mentioned breathing problems, and, as with so many of us who live with chronic conditions, adding a new problem to my admittedly small list is a bit overwhelming. I shake, I have pain, and now I have compromised lungs. Woohoo. Not.
Three bouts of bronchitis and one of pneumonia over the past three years has done enough damage to my lungs that working in a manufacturing environment meant that the chemicals in the air necessitated inhalers, which didn’t help. More than once I got into my car at day’s end and sat there, gasping for air. After literally nearly choking to death on congestion while sick with bronchitis (the most terrifying thing you never want to go through, let me tell you), the fear of not being able to breathe is a constant, and as I tweeted, “You don’t realize how much you take breathing for granted until you can’t!”
What this has done – again, touched on in my last post – is create a determination to live the life of my dreams, helping others with my healing work. Planning isn’t my strong point, but I’ve turned my Passion Planner into a business planner, keeping track of blog and social media ideas, as well as client appointments and feedback. I’ve got my eye on a guide for business and blogging from Blessing Manifesting, too.
I’m taking the need for little physical activity as message from the ‘verse to knock my shit off and run this business as a business, otherwise what’s the bloody point, right? Squandering my ability would be such a waste, and if I don’t do this, I’m going to look back one day and regret being too scared to really step up and make a serious go of it. I’ve done it half-assed over the years, having that “it will all work out” mentality, but in reality it hasn’t, and it’s because I blithely expected a successful business to just fall into my lap with as little effort as possible on my part. I tend to go through life that way, as I’m sure many of you have noticed. 😉
This journey is going to be something new for me, and I hope to be of service to you as I build this dream bigger than I could have ever dreamed!
I discovered the ability to help others feel better back in 2009, and I’ve heard that line more times than I can count. The reason being either…
1: It’s a gift from God/the Universe/Spirit, so you can’t charge.
2: You can’t guarantee results.
Valid statements, but they miss the crucial point: my time is valuable (as is every other energy worker’s). And while, yes, everyone has the ability to help others and it is something innate in all of us, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay the one doing the work for you for their time.
The vast majority of people can cook, can write, can dip a paintbrush into paint and swipe it across a canvas; does that mean you shouldn’t pay for your meal at a restaurant, your secretary for taking your phone messages, the artist for the painting they created? Of course not!
As for guarantees; of course we can’t. No one can. Your doctor can’t guarantee results, either. Every human is different, everyone experiences medications differently (I react quite badly to most of them, even the ones specific to an issue), and not one single doctor will ever say, “I guarantee this will work. Quote me on that.” because that would be foolish and open them up to lawsuits.
I would never promise results because technically I am not doing the work – your soul and the energies of the universe are working together to give you the best boost to your innate healing that you are willing to accept; I’m just the facilitator for that boost. Say what? All that means is that if you really, on a subconscious level, don’t really want to feel better, then no medication or energy work in the world will help you feel better. It just doesn’t work that way.
That still doesn’t mean that your doctor’s time isn’t valuable, or nor that an energy worker’s isn’t. Many of us have health issues of our own, and being able to do this work and make a living at it is what makes it possible to pay our rent and buy groceries when we can’t go out and work for others. I lost my job because of my tremors and fibromyalgia and their resulting problems. I have difficulty typing, which is needed to do the sit-down work I used to do, I don’t have the physical ability to do the retail work anymore, and every single time I step out the front door my tremors kick into third gear, making finding work incredibly difficult, if not impossible. Being able to work from home has saved so many of us!
Most energy workers battle within themselves over whether or not to charge, whether those statement above are right, whether what they do actually has value, and, since the world equates the money you make with your worth, it can start a pretty nasty spiral down into the world of self-esteem and self-worth.
We just need to remember that we are valuable, and so is the service we provide!!
We bring light to the world, and every beacon of light is needed. 🙂
Yesterday I did a favorite distance session for someone in the Norway, and she responded with, “First, I cried, then I felt like I was being aired out, and now I’m so tired I can’t even make myself go to bed, lol.” I smiled for a long time after reading that! 🙂
I love this session because not only does it help people get some rest, but it works on a deep level that plays out over time. You may not connect the changes back to the session, but that’s ok, your Higher Self knows. 🙂
This is what I wrote about it in 2016 when I resurrected it from 2013 (and yes, the pricing is the same):
What a month. Not my favorite March ever, that’s for sure, but far from the worst at the same time. If you’re an astrology buff, then Mercury Retrograde is kicking my ass, and hasn’t stopped. Not an astrology buff? Well, then, this month just bit. It’s as simple as that.
On the good side, things around here have been blooming like mad for a few weeks, and this is one of my favorite spring sights every year:
Yep, that’s my local grocery story. It’s always so pretty in March!!
I’ve had plenty of time to enjoy the seasonal changes, partly due to the social media break, and partly because I’m enjoying (can you sense the sarcasm?) a new fibromyalgia issue: headaches, dizziness, and nausea. Just all of a sudden I woke up with a horrid case of all 3 last Saturday, and every day since has had some degree of them. I did some research, and while the all-over pain is the most common symptom of fibro, these symptoms are pretty much next in line. There’s a way to help alleviate them called Trigger Point Massage (this website is great!) and I’ve been doing the massage, but it’s not quite kicking it, so ugh. Yesterday was a bad day*, so I spent most of it outside in the sun, reading. My hair hasn’t been this short in eons, so I completely didn’t think about my ears; I believe I may have sunburned the tips!
The urge to check Twitter has gone away, but the urge to tweet hasn’t. My head is filled with things like:
“My doctor rocks!”
“Two hawks just flew overhead, and then a raven. And then another raven. #birdwatch”
“Oooh, if you’re in Maryland, check out a new exhibit that my friend Michael is part of! #boostthesignal”
“I took all the apps off my phone, and now I barely touch it. Why do I have a smartphone?”
Random stuff like that. Instead, it swims around in my head until something else catches my attention. It’s kind of weird how the internet has done that to us, isn’t it?
I’ve been reading more blogs (when I do get online), and I’m really enjoying that. I’ve also read 3 books in as many days. 😉
Tomorrow night I’m doing a distance healing session, and yesterday I had an in-person very, very short one (it was for as long as I could stand up without getting dizzy). I’m so happy that I’m still being asked to help others; it really makes my day.
