9 yearsIt was almost nine years ago today that the “Women as Healers” books arrived in our garage … what an exciting adventure this has been!! We feel a “good overwhelming” feeling when we reflect on the thousands of women who’ve read and been touched by the book, as well as participated in “Women as Healers” workshops and retreats. It has been our honor to serve and touch you through the powerful stories of these healers from around the world.

By Christmas, we are anticipating our printed-copy “Women as Healers” inventory will be depleted. It will then be available as an e-book only for $3.95; you can also download the “Women as Healers” CD for $9.99 to listen and relax as you enjoy reading the e-book.

We have enjoyed blogging on this site for the entire time the book has been available … and it feels like our nine-year anniversary is a perfect time to sign off. We continue to wish you much peace, love, contentment and healing. Be well…

Do you feel joyful?

JoyLately, we’ve been observing many people talking more about joy – some don’t have it, some want more of it, some are intentionally trying to create it, some feel it quite naturally. Where are you on this continuum?

A few months back, we heard Lee Harris say, “Joy encourages us to connect, not isolate. If you have had a tendency to isolate in the past, welcome to the new era of joy and connectivity!” We loved this! Definitely something to ponder and watch how connectivity happens as you personally bring in more joy! Bring it on!!

IntentionI recently saw this quote/“play on words” and I’m not sure who said it, but it is a good thing to ponder! “Are you living in tension or living in intention?”

With all that’s going on in the world today, it is easy to slide into living in tension, isn’t it?! But this quote reminds us to live with intention. On many levels we know that tension isn’t good for the body/mind/spirit while intention is such a useful tool for our overall health and life. So, today we encourage you to reflect (and possibly re-commit) to living with intention, not in tension. As we do this, we can expect positive changes! Let us know what positivity you’ve seen as you shift from tension to intention…

Choosing Consciousness

ConsciousnessWe were recently watching a YouTube video with Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness. He said, “If people were choosing consciousness, they would not be able to choose war or violence.”

Are you choosing consciousness? We vote YES!! And that’s really what the “Women as Healers” movement is all about – increasing consciousness to create peace. It is sometimes deep, arduous personal inner work, but we observe more and more people, on a daily basis, choosing the higher vibration of consciousness. A transformational time, we are transitioning our world into a peace-loving, sacred place where we live in joy. Hold the vision!

Time magazineYou may remember this Time magazine cover from earlier this year (Jan. 29th). As the election date of November 6 is getting closer and the “Trump effect” continues to change the political landscape, more women running could (and we think WILL) change America.

It is a grassroots movement, a metamorphosis of activism and equality. And it’s likely to be more than just about the mid-term elections; it’s about the long-term viability of our nation. As more women have a hand in shaping U.S. policies, they elevate issues that men often push aside (for example: women’s health, equal pay, gun control, etc.)

The most important thing for the election process is to VOTE … young people, women, black/brown/yellow/white – all diversity matters … just VOTE!!

Women Voting

Women voteI was recently listening to Steve Kornacki, an MSNBC statistican. He was talking about a new poll of how educated women would vote today (Republican vs. Democrat). Pew Research shows the following statistics today:

  MEN WOMEN
Republican 48% 37%
Democrat 44% 56%

Further, from Kornacki’s reporting, the far right-hand column difference of almost 20 points is made up of college-educated women. This is being called the “Trump effect” and while we do not share our political views on this website, we do share women’s issues and this is most definitely about modern day women!

The bottomline is women will be voting in the mid-November elections … be sure to mark your calendar and be one of those who VOTES!!

Important Buddha Quote

QuoteSo, here’s an especially interesting quote for our times from Buddha, “Three things cannot long be hidden:  the sun, the moon and the truth.” Thank goodness the sun and moon are stable because they help ground us; this feels so important in these crazy political times of uncertainty – especially around the “truth.” What an interesting time this is and what a journey we’re all on!

The wonderful news is many of us are continuing to do our important work and we keep on, keepin’ on! As they say, “Carry on!”  Yes, we will!!

Impossible??

impossibleI recently saw on Facebook that a famous actor (sorry, I can’t remember who!!) said, “Impossible really says I’m possible.” Don’t you love this?!!

While there are a “dime-a-day” numerous coaches and consultants who want you to believe your value/worth and also want to help you “get there,” this quote speaks to transforming a weakness – or perhaps a vulnerability – into a strength. A wonderful thought, especially as we move into a lovely SPRINGtime!

Standing Ovation!

2017 HBB ConferenceIn the last blog post, I mentioned keynoting at the Healing Beyond Borders’ international conference. Their conference theme was “The Next Harmonic.” When I learned of this theme, I immediately thought, “They definitely need the harp for any discussion about harmonics … without any doubt, this is in my wheelhouse!!”

The harp is one of, if not the most, harmonic instruments. It is because the strings are “open,” with one pitch activating or ringing frequencies in the upper and lower octaves of the instrument. These harmonics or overtones are immediate as the sound board “kicks out” the vibrations to the listener. Paradoxical in nature, the harp’s harmonics are so gentle, soothing and comforting, but also very powerful, healing and spiritual.

I believe this experiential presentation resonated with the audience because they gave a standing ovation! I have had a few standing ovations in my speaking career, but this one felt extra special. Perhaps it was because it was also my birthday and it felt so honoring!!

Total Eclipse

Total EclipseI recognize the total eclipse was several months ago, but I never wrote about my experience on this blog and want to share!

Sometimes, synchronicities happen … and that’s exactly what happened for the total eclipse on August 21, 2017. The state of Nebraska, especially along I-80 (the southern corridor) was projected to experience totality and more than a year before the big day, the entire state began a marketing push to encourage tourists to visit during this energetic time. Since I am originally from Nebraska and one of my dear aunts lives in Kearney, she sent me many articles over the past year giving me information about this major event. As I began scheduling August gigs, I realized I would be keynoting at the Healing Beyond Borders’ conference in Denver the weekend before the Eclipse. Perfect timing to speak at the conference on August 19th (my birthday!), then drive six hours north to my aunt’s house in Kearney on August 20th, arriving just in time to experience a total eclipse the next day!

The morning of the 21st, my aunt and I made breakfast, went for a walk, prepared for the eclipse and went out to lunch. It was a beautiful warm day with clear skies and we chose to sit on her back deck that overlooked a large expansive common area. Shortly after noon, we began looking at the sun through our special glasses; totality was to occur at 12:52 for one minute and 45 seconds. And as we looked around the community, we saw numerous people sitting outside doing the same thing – all gazing up at the sun. When the big moment of totality occurred, the entire community started cheering! It was a really cool experience watching this with my 88-year-old aunt in the privacy of her home, yet also feeling like we were all in community, too!

Once totality occurred, it was safe to look directly at the sun and that is when I took the photo above. I won’t forget the beautiful, sparkling aura of the sun on that very special day. Wow, what an awesome experience!
