Tabitha: Oct 31
Tabitha was a Chocolate - Seal point Siamese cat. I live in Calgary and feeling very alone decided to purchase a cat. Tabitha was a great sensitive companion that was extremely aware of my emotions. She love to lie in front of me as I vacuumed and made sure to be directly in the path so I would vacuum her fur too. I never had any loose hair floating about or clinging to the furniture. This was a plus in my books.
When company visited, if she sensed I like them she would come around and be available to be patted, if they wished. If she sensed I was not fond but accommodating she would hide in the bedroom climbing up on the spare twin bed and look out at the skyline and the mountains awaiting their departure.
I spent a lot of time training her to walk on a lead. When I pulled it out of the closet, she would run and sit at the front door awaiting for me to attach it to her rhinestone studded body harness. There were many odd looks as we used the elevator to go down to the garage. She would lay quietly on the passenger seat of my Firebird and off we would go on an adventure. I would do all the necessary outings that were required as she sat watching for my return. What a great companion Tabitha was.
Just before Truly was born she got out of the house on the porch roof through an upper window in the house and was hit by a car. I was heartbroken at her loss, but knew she had served me well and this was a new chapter where she no longer was the center of my attention.
I was so devastated at finding her body on the sidewalk in front of our house that Tom made sure to keep me busy for the next few days shopping ,walking and visiting friend to help pass the time for the grieving to be lessened. This allowed the healing process to begin. My wonderful memories of this delightful companion are intact. I am truth grateful for the precious time we spent together
There's a trick to the 'graceful exit.' It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over - and let it go. It means leaving what's over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out." Companions, weather human or pets are precious. Enjoy them while you can. in love and light
Miss Muffy; Oct 30
Shortly after Tom and I were married we purchase a black and white Cocker Spaniel and of course we called her Miss Muffy. What a treasure. We had a Chocolate/Seal Point Siamese cat called Tabitha who when climbing stairs always walked close to the railing. When Muffy came along she followed the cat and always walked next to the railing so we never worried about tripping on the stairs.
Miss Muffy was so gentle that everyone coming to the house told us when we had puppies they would like one. Tom had planned on Breeding but it was not meant to be as Miss Muffy turned out to be a hermaphrodite (he/she). When we called the breeder to inform him she was not a breeding dog he informed us to bring her back. He would put her down and give us another dog. Breeders are not stupid. They know you bond with a dog and they will never have to give you any money back. Enough said about that as that was out of the question.
We walked nine Miles a day, even during my pregnancy. I can delightfully say I only put on 30 lbs with that pregnancy and was in fabulous shape. Needed to be, as it was a very difficult labour. One of my flash back memories was looking out the window to the back yard and seeing Miss Muffy eating Tiny Tim Tomatoes right off the bushes. What a hoot and delightful pet we had for many years. She was wonderful with children and everyone who came in contact with her. Pleasant memories of days gone by. in love and light
Reflections of the Past.
I was in meditation when a past memory reminded how much I loved my gardens. I would be making breakfast around 7 am and a scratch would by at the door to the Granny apartment. I would open the door for Angel and she would share my breakfast. We would then go out on the back deck where I would have my coffee and enjoy the beautiful gardens with Angel at my side. You see I was the Fun Mummy. After coffee we would slow meander through the gardens until we reached the Pea patch.
I'd crack open the pods. One for me, one for Angel. One for me, one for Angel. We never did bring any back to the house. They were so good, we ate them all. We would pick whatever was ripe and then return. No one the wise for our fun adventure into the garden. Ah miss those wonderful days with just Angel and me. So Angel is Cathy's dog the shitzu.
Animals are our dearest non-judgmental companions who bring tremendous joy when we take the time to cherish and enjoy them. in love and light
Clear Thinking Oct 29
There is no right or wrong to mediation. There are practices that make it more effective: Music, Guided meditation, focusing on a mantra. Choose what works for you. When you are under stress it helps to calm us down and how to change our thinking in a more positive way to see the larger picture.
It is even more important when we are stressed to meditate as during these times we produce more Cortisol. The stress hormone CORTISOL creates the fight or flight state. This particular hormone creates an adaptive response by increasing the neurological connections within the brain. When continual stressors occur, you end up with ADRENAL OVERLOAD. This can also cause mental health issues such as depression and anxiety and in turn also creates the sensation of brain fog, poor memory and irritability.
Daily meditation actually changes the wiring within the brain. Daily meditation has also been found to reduce circulating inflammatory markers in your blood stream, which makes it an effective treatment for those with chronic pain. It improves the immune function and assists in reversing your biologic age in comparison with your chronological age, making it a great anti-aging treatment.
Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what he world needs is people who have come alive. in love and light

Staying the Course: Oct 24
Over the last month I know many of my friends and colleagues have been emotionally and physically affected by the earth shift and the new moon. What a ride.
My computer went down for over a week. My cell phone was having issues .My head felt like it was being squeezed in a vise. Clients booked only to cancel a day later. Through all of this I have learned to take each problem in stride. My biggest issue was when the Right Lower 2nd molar began to ache. It radiated pain in my lower jaw , my upper jaw and over to the left side of my face in sympathy. Being empathetic is not always pleasant. This is one of those more difficult times with everything else being emphasized.
I had to go with the flow and accept that some things can change and with others we have to address the source and make a change. I did bio-feed back. in light wellness, essential oils I even broke down and took Orajel, Amoxicillan Antibiotics for the infection and Ibuprofen to help ease the nerve pain. Everything within my knowledge and power. I don't due medication without careful thought to its effects.
The end result was that the molar had to be extracted with half my face being frozen. The infection did not allow the freezing to work so 3 times during the removal. The dentist had to put in more freezing along the jaw and once the tooth was drilled in half into the root in the center of the tooth. Painful is an appropriate word here. I still had pain with each piece being pulled out. Not a pleasant experience.
At home, I took more antibiotics, put the lights on my face to remove freezing and taught my class that evening. Life challenges allow us to grow, find internal strength and know we can overcome anything if we just focus and apply ourselves. We have to stay the course. in love and light
There is an old saying: "That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger." I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things: your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that will keep you whole. Those are the things to hold onto when you are broken.” ― Jax Teller
Natural Fermentation Oct 22
This fall I began to do canning again after 7 years of absence. I started with small amounts of my favourite foods. Dilled carrots, Zucchini Pickles and Green Tomato Relish. Looking forward to sharing with family and friends.
Saturday I attended an excellent workshop with Rebecca on Fermentation of Vegetables.. We did 1 litre jars of Sauerkraut and Spicy Dilled Beans. Her explanation of how natural lactobacillus ( a probiotic) occurs and assists the digestive process(the gut) was very well explained. This is part of the Endocrine System and therefore also assists improving the immune system. Due to processed food in the diet many people have an overabundance of CANDIDA in their systems and this can be precursors to dis-ease within the body. By using fermented foods you can help to eliminate many health issues and dis-eases.
We live in a society which is now going back to basics. Years ago it was well know that by drinking the brine from Sauerkraut you could begin the healing process of diseases with inflammation of the digestive track such as Ileitis, ulcerative colitis and diverticulitus. Wonderful to see a re-emergence of natural foods.
Knowledgeable instructor, wonderful company and great fermented jars of food to bring home. I will encourage anyone wanting to know more about the process of fermentation to attend her workshop. Well done. Kudos to you Rebecca. in love and light Rev Alva Folkes Dr of Natural Medicine.
Your Choice: Good/ Bad Oct 21
In a channeling session this week we had a group calling themselves "The Black Source." I could feel the awkward negative energy as they entered the room. My head began to hurt as if I had a band to tight around it. When I asked where they were from, told a galaxy far away. I changed the questions prearranged to reflect and discern what this group of entities wanted.
I inquired if they were aware the words Black Source had a negative connotation to it? The reply was simply "we don't care" I asked a few more pertinent question to ascertain the reason for the visit. they would take the opportunity when ever given to approach those open to communication..I then stated they were not welcome and it was time for them to leave as we would not work with them
My student had screaming voice in his head "get out, get out". The 20 entities were in black robes with white trim around the cuffs and the edge of the hood around their head.. As they withdrew, they stated they would be back. There are as many of us as there are good. Gave my student information to try to persuade him to work with him in regards to money, career and what they could help him accomplish in the future. He had to push back in order to disconnect.
The student went to a space described as in between zone. It was foggy, not clear. I inquired was this the space between worlds where those who have passed to discern the next step of their journey. Yes was the reply, but he was alone here. He did not see anyone else. He remained there for a few minutes before returning.
It is important when doing this kind of work to have the awareness to know when to withdraw. This is where experience, knowledge and education play an important role as a director. in love and light
Trusting a person.
Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, forever to repair. So think twice about trusting a person who has let you down more than twice. Once was a warning, twice was a lesson and anything more is taking advantage.
Blessed Oct 18
I have the most delightful, enthusiastic class to share wisdom knowledge and insights with. I am honoured that they join me weekly to learn about a variety of topics and then mediate to understand how it applies to their everyday live. I learn as much from them as they do from me.
As individuals we all learn at different levels of awareness. I share my years of research and study to give insights and help others understand how to cope with situations and lessons of life. The guided mediations are to help integrate the information at a subconscious level. I become excited when a student moves to a higher level of understanding. That is what my passion is all about.
Every day you witness laws of action and reaction in order to understand the balance within your own life. Through understanding these natural laws we can bring balance and harmony to move into a state of GRACE to experience life fully.
There is never just one right answer. There is never just one right question.
It is all of the above. in love and light
