We keep saying we’re not political on this blog site … and we’re not!! But, we can’t help notice all that’s happenin’ in U.S. politics these days.
A few years back, I remember a big flack made about Sarah Palin’s clothes and the outlandish amount that she spent on them. I couldn’t help but reflect on this and Hillary’s clothes as I was watching Hillary come back after her pneumonia episode. Within six hours, she wore two different beautiful jackets and I thought about the stunning white outfit she wore to accept the DNC nomination.
This leads to a couple of questions: 1) How much is her clothing budget? 2) Do her clothes help her look presidential? or 3) Are clothes a “shallow” discussion when there’s so many important issues to discuss this election season?
Let us know your thoughts…
This expression brings up lots of memories and feelings, doesn’t it?! And it’s certainly a time of transition for many people – children, their parents, teens, and even adult learners. It is a “marker” of a new beginning, an opening to the possibilities of creating good things in the upcoming year.
Personally, the children next door are very near and dear to my heart. Today, they enter 2nd and 6th grade … I just got to see them, take photos and wish them well for an awesome year ahead!
I, too, have been going “back to school” during the month of August. I recently completed a certification in a special life coaching technique … I’ll share more in a later post, but for now, Happy Back to Learning Day and here’s to a great year ahead!!

The latest statistics (September 2015) show that almost 22% of men volunteer while 28% of women volunteer. Isn’t that interesting?! Both genders are involved and participating in volunteer actions. The world definitely needs both genders!
So, why are we writing about this on “Women as Healers” blog? Well, women with their innate healing and nurturing skills can be naturals at volunteering, sharing and serving with time, love and expertise. Perhaps this is why the above statistics show more women than men volunteering. It’s all “food for thought” and bottomline, regardless of your gender, if you feel “called” to volunteer, by all means, go for it!

Hope you can join us and if you saw this blog, be sure to mention it when you stop by to say “Hi!!”

On my other website (MusicalReflections.com), I recently mentioned taking a tapping class. It has been a fun and interesting journey! AND, I’ve also recently completed a Dave Ramsey class called Financial Peace University (FPU). It is quite a powerful combo – between FPU and tapping, it is a game changer!! Perhaps spring and summer times are a great time to learn, grow … and get the financial house in order. It certainly feels awesome!!

We are excited to see and share with our readers the newest Special Newsweek Edition titled “Spiritual Living.” It is amazing and awesome to see this. Once Newsweek publishes this, you know it’s gone mainstream!! Wow, what incredible times we live in!!
This website focuses on women doing healing work, so as we are reading the various articles in this publication, we have an eye out for special mentions of women. What are your observations? We look forward to your sharings if/when you read this exciting publication…

Are you aware of this? Do you know what it means? Can you feel it and/or are you experiencing it?
Many people are talking about this … the planets (four or five of them) are causing all kinds of challenges, specifically with communication.
Having computer problems? Phone challenges? Car issues, especially with the technological/electrical systems? All of these are likely related to planets in retrograde … honestly!
I feel it and so can many others. As I’m in conversation with others, sometimes I’ll mention this and I’m amused how many are aware of this vs. others who think it is hocus pocus!!
Regardless what you believe, the best advice is “Keep breathing!!” because truly, this, too, shall pass … and on some days, not a moment too soon!! In the meantime, here’s to an awesome summer!

Well, we continue to not endorse any candidate in the U.S. presidential election. However, we can’t help but mention the recent “woman’s card” discussion by one of the male candidates. Really?!!
It’s the year 2016, not 1950!! Haven’t we progressed way beyond that?!! Well, apparently NOT … ugh! Does Trump think he can just say anything without any backlash from Hillary Clinton supporters? Does he not realize we women talk and we vote! Is he really that stupid?
This blog is all about empowering women so you likely haven’t heard the last of this issue. We can only hope that keeping the conversation alive helps break down barriers and catapult us to move forward. Obviously, pay attention … this election season and who we elect is vitally important.
