I am happy to announce a new service for your animal friends: Energy Healing for Pets!
Energy Healing for Pets is a gentle, non-invasive way to assist all animals in healing physical illness, fear, anxiety, and even behavioral issues. Other benefits include restored balance, bringing about an improved state of health, the ability to accelerate the healing process as well as keeping your animal friend calm, at rest and peaceful during stressful situations.
These healing energies work at the cellular level thereby releasing the vibrations that hold the pattern of disease and collective past trauma.
Each session for your pet is $55 and lasts from 20 – 30 minutes. For your pet’s comfort, I can travel to you. Remote healing is also an option and recommended in emergency situations.

Your pet’s health and happiness are just an energy shift away!
As the avid entrepreneur that I am, I study marketing techniques constantly. The age-old advice has always been to “crush, eliminate, destroy and out-do” your competition. I’ve come to realize years ago that if I’m focusing my attention on my “competition” and “crushing them,” and since “energy flows where attention goes,” then I’m not allowing energy toward the growth of my own business. Rather, I’m expending my precious time and energy on other people and not myself.
This reminds me of my first grade teacher, Mrs. Miller, who was always reminding us to “mind your own business.” What GREAT advice! Okay, I will, and I urge you to do the same. Here’s why: Competition is an illusion.
Competition is the imagined phantom of people who are stuck in scarcity thinking. Lack mentality creates fear. Fear creates imaginary monsters. Competition is one of those monsters.
See, if you are truly living authentically and your business is a reflection of your authenticity, then by undisputable Universal Law, you will attract your ideal clients. If you are running your own race and keeping your focus on being your excellent self and providing excellent service, then the power of your focus and intention will outshine and override any and all lack-based fears. In fact, you’ll be so busy improving and expanding your game to be of even greater service, that you won’t have the time, energy or inclination to consider your “competition,” for lack of a better word.
Why do you think horses wear blinders in races? Think about it. Horses are trained to only look ahead to see where they are going. If they did not wear blinders, they would be distracted by the other horses and probably run right into each other. That would prove to be quite chaotic and potentially deadly.
I offer that the same happens with us. If we are focused on everything that is going on around us and comparing ourselves to others, we lose sight of ourselves, our goals and objectives. We must put on our blinders to keep our distractions at bay and focus on what is in front of us—the next step, and ultimately the illusive finish line.
This is where meditation and visualization come into play. I suggest daily meditation (I love walking meditation) before you start your workday, so that you are a clear channel for your business. Inspirations, ideas and insights will flow to you. Visualize what you want your business to look like: Who are you serving? Where are you going, traveling to, speaking with? What kind of money are you making? What does expansion look like?
The only race you have is with yourself. Are you living authentically? Is your business in alignment with your core values? Are you open to spiritual guidance and expansion? Are you always seeking to improve your services and to offer tremendous value? This is your race, honey.
Put your blinders on and give your attention to YOU and your business and watch the momentum grow. Your business is like a fingerprint: one of a kind. Even though you may offer similar products or services, nobody can deliver what you can because there is only ONE you. How can anyone compete with that?
Back in my college days, as an English major, I adored the rogue American writers who exiled to Paris – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, Henry James, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, E. E. Cummings and their many creative, freedom-loving friends. I especially loved F. Scott Fitzgerald. In fact, I dated a fellow English major and our nicknames among our hardly-ever-sober social crowd were F. Scott and Zelda – after F. Scott Fitzgerald and his “crazy” wife.
It is believed that Zelda was Fitzgerald’s inspiration for my all time favorite literary heroine, Nicole Diver, of Tender Is The Night. In the story, Nicole and her husband Dick live a glamorously decadent lifestyle, wrought with fabulous dinner parties, many colorful players and ever-flowing alcohol. On occasion, Nicole would become emotionally overcome, mainly by anxiety, and would hide out in her bathroom, sometimes sobbing, other times thrashing about. I’d venture to guess that she even slept it off in there a few times.
I remember feeling really validated by Nicole’s bathroom behavior when I first read Tender Is The Night. Since childhood, retreating to the bathroom was my escape from the insanity around me. Over the years, I’ve spent hours locked away in various bathrooms melting down, calming down, crying, sobbing, temper-tantruming, contemplating and cursing the world. I would call this “Going Nicole.”
As I continue on my spiritual path, the drama has quieted, but I still need to retreat to the ladies room on a regular basis to ground myself. It’s the one quiet place where I can be still, tune everything out and take a few minutes to communicate with myself – my higher self – to check in, feel what’s rattled me, acknowledge it, receive the message it is offering me, give thanks, clear it, breathe and continue my day peacefully. I always take the time to ground myself, so that I don’t unravel later or contaminate others with my spun-out energy. Grounding, clearing, untangling… whatever you want to call it, is good for you and everybody around you! It is essential for living a psychic life.
I encourage everyone to have a Grounding Room and use it regularly, so that you don’t find yourself Going Nicole!
We are all born psychic and we all have our own psychic strengths, whether it’s clairvoyance, (clear seeing) clairsentience (clear feeling), clairaudience (clear hearing) or claircognizance (clear knowing). Many people experience all four psychic senses; however, it is common that one sense is more dominant than the others.
Which is your strongest psychic sense?
Clairvoyance: Clear seeing. This is when psychic messages come through as visions or images on the screen of your mind. These images can be still or moving, occurring when your eyes are either opened or closed, while awake, daydreaming or asleep.
Clairsentience: Clear feeling. Many times people refer to having “gut” feelings, sensation in their spleens and even experience the physical pain of others. Clairsentients are very sensitive to other people’s energies and emotions. Psychic messages are felt in the body.
Clairaudience: Clear hearing. Messages are received through voices, music or other sounds in clairaudients. These sounds usually occur internally – in the mind, in the form of thoughts. For most clairaudients, messages come through to them in their own voices. At times, messages may be heard physically with the ears and originate from an external source.
Claircognizance: Clear knowing. This occurs when information, an idea, concept or thought comes to mind and has the feeling of importance. The knowledge received often flashes suddenly into mind seemingly out of nowhere. Knowing who is on the phone, for example, before answering it or knowing personal things about people you just meet is claircognizance.
Once you determine your strongest psychic sense, you can begin developing it… much more on that to come!
Watch for magic,
Being an entrepreneur is fun. Around every corner lies an opportunity to learn new lessons. By the time I die, I will be an entrepreneurial genius. Move over, Donald.
I bet this is something that all entrepreneurs can relate to: Recently, I’ve been offered deals that don’t come near what I expect to be paid for. These deals basically involve donating my time in hopes for a profitable return to be split amongst the heavy hitters, without the benefits of partnership. Essentially, I’ve been living in Low-Ball City, which is a stop-over to Destitution Valley.
My personality type dictates that I “keep it open at the top”, so I consider every offer from every angle. Afterall, I don’t want to be an uncompassionate, irrational bitch. It usually takes me a day to digest and then see the offer clearly. My usual response to people is “Let me sleep on this and I’ll get back with you tomorrow.” I usually have a clear head and solid response by morning.
When I’m all knotted up, I’ll call a “committee meeting.” I really should do this first, as it gives me the greatest clarity. My imagined meeting takes place at a big, round table seated by a few of my respected teachers, such as John Assaraf, Oprah, Donald Trump, Jesus, James Ray and Martha Stewart. The players change depending on the circumstances, but these are my main committee members.
I’ll throw out my issue and ask for their guidance. One by one, they tell me their opinions. Their voices and personalities are so strong and clear. I get an answer within five minutes. One of the new committee members is Lisa from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. In her introduction, she says, “If it doesn’t make me money, I don’t do it.” Her voice has been calling me to the “reality table” of taking care of my family.
My lesson here is obvious: I tend to be a people pleaser, putting their needs in front of mine. Whoever can relate to this, raise your hand!
Here’s what my committee is saying: James frequently tells me to “Get over it!” Dr Phil will say, “How’s that workin’ for you?” Martha tells me, “That’s just silly nonsense.” Oprah reminds me to “Take care of you first.” Jesus reminds me that fearful people operate from lack and greed… “bless them and move on.” Kevin Nealon, the dirty mechanic in “Joe Dirt” reminds me “This isn’t Unicef.”
I’ve decided to take some time to put a few policies in place, so that when I find myself nearing Low-Ball City, I can see it coming and make a right turn at “Charlene’s Worth Blvd” and avoid getting knotted up altogether.
I’m grateful for the lessons and the contrasts. I can now strongly proclaim, “I choose to work with people who honor my time and expertise and recognize the tremendous value that I bring to the table. I bring it to honor them.”
And the pendulum swings…
Life is meant to be fun and joyous! When we are in a higher vibration, things come more easily to us. Our spirits come alive, our minds open and our hearts become receptive. When we are in a higher vibration, our psychic senses come alive! This journey is all about tuning out from the noise of the world and tuning in to the beautiful sound of your inner voice – your Spirit. It has much to tell you.
Try any of these things to lift your Spirit:
- Nature: Go for a walk or hike. Nature is a quick fix. Feel the sun on your skin, smell the grass, observe the textures, listen to the different sounds.
- Beauty: I love good architecture. Driving through a historic district and looking at beautiful homes is a sure fire fix for me. Go to a gallery, your favorite antique store…any place visually stimulating.
- Media: Everybody loves music, reading a great book or watching a favorite movie. Media is a fabulous mind break and emotional connector. Indulge.
- Movement: Walk, wiggle, stretch, workout, ride your bike, dance, do yoga! Moving the body releases energy and keeps you young and supple.
- Food: Stimulate your taste buds with yummy, healthy goodness! An orange sounds great right now.
- Animals: What is it about looking into a dog’s eyes? Pets are excellent sources love, compassion and entertainment.
- Creativity: Getting lost in a creative project is directly connecting to your higher self and can be a blissfully imaginative experience. I love it when you finally realize the time and can’t believe how much of it has passed!
- Meditation: Some people sit quietly, pray, walk, sing… you decide the form. Quieting your mind is essential for psychic growth and overall peace.
- Giving: Being of service and giving of your time, money or energy feeds into the never ending flow of well being and comes right back to you in an overwhelming feeling of connection.
- Play! Get down on the floor and play Candyland with your little one or pick up her hoola-hoop and give it a spin. You’ll want your own! Hop on a swing, play tag, go across monkey bars (can you still do it?) Watch children and mimic them. They know how to play very well. Ask if you can play with them and I’ll bet they say, “Yes!”
The bottom line to raising your vibration, increasing your frequency, connecting with Spirit… is to FEEL GOOD! So, just do that and watch your life become magical.
I love what Sonia Choquette says about our planetary evolution. She says, “We are now going from homo sapiens to homo spiritus.” The evidence to support that statement is all around us. Have you seen the number of spiritual groups on Facebook, for example? Just five years ago, we were still fairly quiet about our new thoughts. Now, many people freely share and whole heartily accept the concept that we are indeed spiritual beings having this human experience.
Holding this notion is by far the surest path to psychic development. It is when we release our attachments to our social conditioning and concrete ideas about our physical relationship to the world that we begin to open our minds and hearts to the mystery and magic of our wondrous existence. And when we open ourselves up, we create space for new information – divine information that comes from our Higher Selves, Spirit Guides, Angels, Source.
I have a favorite saying that I tell myself when feeling stuck or stubborn about how a thing is “supposed” to be: “Keep it open at the top.” Whenever I hear the words “supposed to” or “should” I know that I’m being resistant, blocked and that my ego is rearing its self-righteous head. When I find myself in this mode, I know that I’ve been given an opportunity to learn something… to grow. We have a choice in this instant of self-awareness. We can be right and become victimized and angry or we can open up and learn something about ourselves.
Here’s a personal example that I’d like to share with you. Just recently, I was walking home from the grocery store with three heavy bags. I live at the top of a hill, so this trek can be quite a workout. As I’m headed up the sidewalk, two young men are headed down. They are engrossed in conversation and don’t seem to notice me at all. As we got nearer to one another, I realized that if one of us doesn’t move over, there is going to be a collision. At that moment, I thought to myself “they should move, since I’m a woman twice their age and I’m going uphill… that would be the polite thing to do. And I’m tired of always being the one who makes room, yielding to everyone else. I’m not budging.” You can guess what happened next. I pretended not to see them and I slammed right into one of the young men, almost dropping my groceries. Indignantly, I said to him, “Gee thanks!” His response was, “Don’t you think you should say excuse me? ” I was a full blown martyr at this point and said, “You guys are double-wide! You should have moved for me. You’re taking up the entire sidewalk!”
I held onto this one for about two weeks. As the scenario replayed in my mind, I knew there was a lesson to be learned, but for the life of me, I couldn’t see it. I made up my mind that these two young men were just plain rude. Then, just last night, I picked up one of my old favorite books, “You Can Heal Your Life,” by Louise Hay and turned right to the chapter “Resisting Change.” Louise poses the question, “Why do you continue to attract these situations to yourself?” I kept thinking about the sidewalk incident, and while reading my eyes stopped on one word: Invisible. A-ha! That’s it… one of my “lessons” in this life that continues to recur is that I feel angry and victimized when people do not acknowledge me. I have verbally referred to myself as the “6 foot invisible woman.” Another issue that came to surface is my attachment to the rules of politeness. Is it any wonder that I have attracted these situations to myself?
After a short discovery process, I realized that my invisibility issue stemmed from growing up in a chaotic household where everybody else’s drama trumped mine. I was the independent quiet one who observed the insanity around me and moved out of the way when necessary. I felt ignored, unimportant and unloved. I get it (insert heavenly music here)! Okay, so I still have some childhood conditioning to replace. Here is what I have replaced it with: I am wise in moving out of the way of collisions, chaos and drama. I am blessed with acute observation skills and I can see what is before me because I am present and grounded. I am like water: soft and flowing. Is it easy for me to move and adjust myself so that I stay in a flow of peace. Whether people acknowledge me or not has no effect on my self worth. I am compassionate and understanding that other people are occupied with their own thoughts and that everybody has their own definition for politeness. I forgive myself for being stubborn and righteous and am so grateful for this lesson! (And yes, I apologize to the man I slammed into.)
By keeping it open at the top, we receive exactly what we need to learn the lessons that we came here for. What recurring situations are showing up in your life? Believe me, they are here to serve you!
Have fun on your journey.
