I recently opened up a solicitation letter for money donations from Women for Women International. A nice gesture, they included three notecards and a powerful bookmark stating, “Stronger Women, Stronger Nations.” This made me pause for a few moments to reflect what that really means.
From the depths of my soul, I knew it was a true statement. Much of Women for Women International’s work is with women in countries that are war torn and who haven’t lived empowered lives. It is vital to support those who are much less fortunate than we are in the U.S. And with the new presidential administration and the current political turmoil, it feels like so much is being ripped away, yet I stand in gratitude for my many blessings, and how women here and around the world are uniting to truly create stronger nations. We are stronger … we are connected … we are empowered. What an incredible time to be on planet Earth!

A couple weeks ago, because of the cold, harsh Minnesota winter weather, I felt like my hands were all tore up – cracks, raw and itchy, dry and flaky. I thought to myself, what would help? A manicure! And I even had a gift certificate from a dear friend.
The salon was able to work me in within 24 hours and almost immediately, my hands felt relief and I walked out of there with beautiful nails. Vain … well, perhaps, but it also felt like my hands started healing immediately and was an important bit of self-care. I loved every minute!!

I had a gig on January 21, 2017, so I didn’t get to March for history … but I was there in spirit! The numbers are counted (no alt facts here, thank you very much!) and at least 100,000 women (and men) walked in St. Paul, MN and millions around the world! As Caroline Myss says, “The beginning of redirecting the flow of our destiny.” Can you feel it? It’s huge!!!
Marching for humanity, our dignity, our equality, our voices, our rights. While we have come through years (and generations) of feeling “one down,” powerless, suppressed, not good enough, victimized, squelched, minimalized, marginalized and quieted, NOT any longer!! On Saturday, we owned our power; we took it back as our birthright. The power surge that is running through all of our veins is because it happened collectively and peacefully, not just in the United State but on all seven continents.
Are we one and done? Nope! Every person I’ve talked to since Jan. 21 talks about their action plan. I’m doing this; I’m doing that. What are you doing? Our empowered voices matter and they will be heard. All government officials took notice (whether they admit it or not). Why else would Trump’s tweets and his press secretary be focused on inauguration/rally numbers/size the morning after … like there’s nothing else to talk about?!! Really? Stay tuned because daily we are giving you something else to talk and tweet about!
All legislators work for us now; they are on our payroll and the words, “You’re fired just may backfire!!” Well, after all, we are ushering in Light from the Dark shadow that has presented itself. Love is more powerful … we know that, we represent that and we’re modeling it. What an amazing time to be alive … it is the culmination of years of work before us. Here’s to the expectancy of hope as we, singlehandedly and collectively, change the world for a wonderful future. Be awake and attentive to bring in the new! Join me dear sisters … we have a powerful mission in front of us!!

Wondering what I should write this month on this blog, a friend suggested that I write about my parents’ birthdays…yes, they are on the same day (six years apart, but nevertheless on the same day).
This year was a big milestone for my Mom and she requested NO party. So, my sister and I wanted to do something special and keep it a secret from her. Since she’s not on Facebook, we decided to post the following:
Occasionally, I’ve posted photos and different events going on in my parents’ lives here on FB. Mom is celebrating a milestone birthday on January 8, 2017. She has requested NO party so my sister and I thought it would be fun to surprise her with a showering of birthday cards. If you would like to send her one, please private message me for her address. I know she will love hearing from so many of you!! And some of you probably know this, but mom and dad share the same birthday! Dad is six years older so if you want to include him in the card showering that’s definitely OK, too!! Thank you … and Happy New Year to you!
And then the barrage of PMs started asking for their address; based on the number of responses, I knew this was a great surprise in the making!!!
The first “card” to arrive on New Year’s Eve Day (nine days before their special day) was actually way more than just a card … it also included a gift of sea-salted caramels (um, yum!) from one of MY friends who hasn’t even met or know my parents!! How cool is that!!
So then, New Year’s Day and January 2nd happened – quietly – without any mail service either days. The next day, the mailbox flooding began in full force. All told, they received 85+ cards from friends and family. But the best surprise – I was shocked at how many of my friends said, “Yes!” to send a card and write a love message when they only know me. How awesome is that … I feel truly encircled by an amazing community and I am grateful. My parents were “over the moon” with this incredible showering of love … a special thank you to ALL who participated!

After the past couple of months with all the holiday prep and celebrations, we love the “calmer” holiday of New Years. We choose to take time at this holiday to reflect, as well as set our intentions for the New Year. Excited to see what transpires in the year ahead and we bet you are, too!!

There’s still time to get your final holiday gifts so that they arrive in time for Christmas.
Just be sure to order by December 19th to ensure delivery by the big day!! We look forward to sending you parcels of love.
One of my all-time favorite gigs was last year at a Divine Anointing event. And I’ll be playing again on December 10th from 1-3 for this event. So, what exactly is this?
“The Gift of Divine Anointing” is a holy oil treatment using 12 oils of ancient Scripture. Beautiful harp music brings vibrations to intensify the healing experience, bringing peace and reverence to the session. It is a sacred time of heartfelt prayer and meditation, profound blessings and insights, inner peace, beauty, love and soul nourishment.

Love, love, love the day of gratitude called Thanksgiving in the U.S. culture … and actually, the whole month of November has felt like a season of gratitude. It is truly a time of year to “connect in” to what we are most thankful for … and there’s so much, isn’t there?!
So from Women as Healers, we wish you a lovely day and season of gratitude…
