I'm staying positive!

I had a really bad dream last night, I know why. At this point in my life, I can follow the progression of things when I (as we all do) have the occasional bad feelings.

AND, I've decided to stay positive! Why not? We make our choices and thereby create our world. Here's a quote that greeted me this morning. Hope you enjoy it!

The Present Work

Blessings be!

A former student of mine called me last week, asking for distance Reiki for her 18 year old son who was in the ICU of Beth Israel Hospital. He was sedated and on a respirator with a raging lung infection that set in after 3 rounds of chemotherapy to treat his newly diagnosed leukemia. What a way to say "hello" after all these years!

But I was so glad she called, believe me, she's a very sweet soul, and I have missed her. Life sends us along so many different trails, and yet, and yet...we meet again!

Well, the long and the short of it is, I decided to do a shamanic journey instead (with her permission to do that rather than distance Reiki - I had my reasons, and I will describe them at another time, perhaps.) In that journey, my Power Animal and the Spirits showed me incredible powers for healing that I had never witnessed before. It was astonishing, and I called Nancy right away as soon as the journey was done...the report from the Spirit world was so great that I couldn't wait to tell her! The Spirits informed me that her son is a great shaman, and that this illness is a way in which to "cook his soul" for the road ahead...

I understood that what I had learned had more significance than just to heal one person - it was a message to me that I took seriously. I have used the information to teach my meditation classes since then, burning out imprints that have caused restrictions in our lives.

I am so grateful for every opportunity that I have to serve the Great Mother Goddess through the requests that come, and the results of shamanic work! Nancy's son is out of the ICU and in a regular room now - its quite a miracle! Thank you, thank you, 13 thank you's to All!

Just a very brief note to let you know that I am now switching my blog to this new address.
