Understanding the Trauma
Mom was taken to the hospital with labour pains. I suspect it was a fairly long labour as that runs in our family. When mom was ready to give birth the nurses crossed her legs so I could not be born. The doctor does not get PAID if he is not at the birth, hence the crossing of moms legs.
Whether we realize it or not, everything in life is contained in the memory of the cells, from the time of conception. It also has the imprint, or patterns from our Grandparents, parents. etc. This is part of genetics we inherited as well, and many people are becoming more aware. It is very important to know that all we see, hear, feel, taste and touch, is contained in the memory of the cells.
The patterning that is set up in the birth process may interfere with the progression of the life path of the infant. There are no accidents. Many traumatic and dramatic lessons both mother and child are facing in their life. While destiny definitely plays a part, there are many man-made traumas that can be avoided and eliminated.
Not allowing me to push my way into the world has caused emotional trauma that needs to be addressed. I was held back by the crossing of the legs. This explains why I push back when someone tries to hold me back or stop me. I need to be in control. I am always thinking about new projects before I am finished the old ones. It explains the impatience I have with myself and frustration with others. Even my seedlings for the garden are started earlier than necessary.
Healing is progressing and I am learning to change my thought process to mentally take time when working on projects. I meditate at least once a day. There are days when I cry a lot. On those days I find the option of meditating 2 or 3 times a helps me to work through the emotions as they arise. Through the years I learned to stop and not say anything for at least 24 years before responding when I was angered. Interesting as through the process, it now affects me even less. I am much calmer and do not have to react to others behaviour.
I am truly grateful for the support of those unseen to direct my path and allow me to fully understand the steps necessary to address and heal my soul. I continue to heal and retrieve the fragments of my soul that were chipped away by pain. If we truly want to help others we have to heal ourselves. So make sure you are comfortable with those you trust to help you work through your emotional issues. Check credentials and get referrals..

I always was aware of spirit. As I began teaching meditation, people started calling for me for advice to help them find answers on how to cope with life issues. Word slowly spread . One day in my meditation I was told by spirit that it was time to charge per visit and I was to say that I was a "Life Direction Consultant". Not much has changed since that day. I have studied many modalities and received many certifications but I keep going back to Life Coaching. Why change what works for you.
All of the courses I have taken including the Dr of Natural Medicine has helped me to explain the source and/or underlying cause of what ails the individual. I find it so fascinating that I am back where I started and doing what I love most.
After doing Past Lives for 10 years Spirit insisted In get Certified in Hypnosis. When training in Reiki, Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usuii, explained that I was already working with him for years. As I learned Polarity Therapy, Dr Stone stood opposite my massage table showing hand placements for maximum release.
When I work using my hands doing "VIBRATIONAL/ENERGY HEALING" the room is often filled with the scent of Roses, I am aware Mother Mary is present. In Hawaii I communicated in the sacred sites with the Kaunas- Original healers. In Therapeutic Touch (TT) I was trained by Mary Simpson. The list goes on as Spirit has directed my path every step of the way. I am truly blessed to be able to share my gifts with all who wish to learn, grow and connect to understand their true gifts.
For those who don't yet understand themselves. It is impossible that they might understand you. It is the same for those who don't yet love themselves. in love and light
she is emotionally exhausted and walks into the ocean to die. End of movie. It was such a hard movie to watch. The feelings and understanding of this empath put me in tears. Fortunately for me the foyer of the building was dark so no one saw the impact it had on me. I will read the reviews before I go again. Life is hard enough without sitting through emotional movies like this.
My thoughts over the last few days has been. I wonder how difficult it was for this Actor/Comedian to portray being thoughtless, inconsiderate and money his only focus? I would love to have a conversation to find out. He certainly did an outstanding job. in love and light
"I believe the unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality" Martin Luther King Jr.
I was never fond of History while at school. I always felt that is was names and dates and the perception of who won the war's point of view. Turns out I was right. We had a class outing to Tussauds' Wax Museum just after studying about Louis Riel. He was depicted as being a traitor in our history books. For those of you who don't know. He was defending his Metis people and was hung for it. He is now a Hero in Winnipeg Manitoba and has a day in the summer where everyone celebrates him as a HERO.
As I stood in front of the was replica I was overwhelmed with how much my young brother looked like him. Right down to the tip of his nose. I had never really seen a picture of him. I could not believe my eyes. The talk within the family was were related but Grandma Riel was a very proud lady and would not discuss it. I am sure that it was how the History books depicted him, as a traitor. She was a well know couturier and designed Bridal gowns for the Eatons' Stores She lived in Winnipeg Manitoba and also made a lot of clothes for Gisele Mackenzie, a Canadian Singer and Actress.(Jack Benny's era). My first sewing kit came from her at 7 ys of age. Shortly after receiving it I made a red straight skirt without a pattern.
So, as I stood in front of Mr Riel I was mesmerized and found it fascinating as I knew the stories were real. I went home excited to share with the family and encouraged them to go see for themselves. The next day at school, one of my classmates made a derogatory remark about my brother being a traitor too. Oh my, punched him in the nose and was sent to the Principals office. The Principal was surprised by my actions as I was a very shy student and never gave anyone a hard time. He told me I had to apologize and I informed him that I would no such thing. NO ONE had the right to malign my family, however the young man needed to apologize to me and my brother. I would remain in his office until it was done.
The principal called the young man into the office and inquired as to the remarks and made him apologize. I am fiercely proud of my family and all of extended family. No one has the right to bad mouth anyone. That was the beginning of my standing up for those who were being bullied or addressed incorrectly. Yes my brother and sister are "Riel" and I am very proud of all of their accomplishments in life. I may not be a hero or a Riel but I have his attitude. in love and light

Chakras: The Energetic Core Nov 17
When you love what you do it shows. Pay attention to the details and focus on your passion. I have had the pleasure and privilege to work in many different capacities. Sometimes one on one, other times in groups or workshops. The thread that ties us together is love and wanting to be aware of how to move forward. That has always been my gift in sharing. I have tremendous passion for assisting - not telling anyone what to do to gain insights, awareness of how to address issues, of home, business or personal areas that need assistance, but helping them realise they have choices.
The soul is the guide and teacher for personality. The physical body is the vehicle for the expression of the soul on earth, just as on a higher plane the soul serves as an expression for the spirit. Your brow center- the third eye is the connection between God Source and the earthly body.
The chakras situated along the spinal column are the central energetic core of our existence. When we learn to observe natural laws governing our environment we become aware and how to work with the movement of all things from pure spirit to physical mater and the return to spirit. The knowledge of the chakras can provide a complex system which enables us to organise and understand our experiences; thus creating the possibilities for acceptance of some situations and changes of those that are no acceptable. Developing a sense of their characteristics through meditation and introspection can enhance the all over quality of life. Knowledge of the Chakras can be utilized for true liberation and fulfilment. in love and light

Just do it. Nov 15
Are you venturing out into a new area? Take the material, knowledge and understanding and make it your own. Then just do it. Experience and time will show you how to make it personal and unique to you. Take classes from EVERYONE who works similarly to you. You can always learn more. NO ONE person has all the answers. To be good at what you do, be open to learning from all.
Truly went to California for three month to work with Sharon to learn the intricacies of CCMBA. I had years of practical Healing Modalities and then learned with Sharon in an intensive workshop in Hawaii. We both have years of practical experiences in Past Lives. Experience makes the difference between being an expert and just doing it. Having said that everyone has to start somewhere.
In last two workshops that were recently presented, we had individuals recording all that was said and done. How sad! Why did you not feel you could not attend these workshop? We work with everyone who wishes to learn. Please feel free to join us and learn PERSONALLY. You really don't get the energy, insights, nuances and awareness from recordings. When you truly work with higher awareness and source everything comes to light. Namaste.

Life is a puzzle: Nov 14
I have always enjoyed doing puzzles. My family and friends have been generous with a variety of themes. I latest is Star Wars. Thousands of Star Wars images in each puzzle piece.. The large completed puzzle will be Darth Vader. I have the boarder almost complete 10 hrs later. This will be a work in progress over the winter.
I start by separating all the colours and addressing the boarder first. I don't start by looking at the larger picture but focus on shapes and fitting the colour sections together. Kind of like my life. What is the next area, venue or workshop I should be focusing on.
With all the emotional work I am doing I see this puzzle as a reflection of my life. All the aspects of personality, the different courses, jobs, relationships all in the tapestry of my life, where I have been, and where I am going. Sometimes the road was easy, others times a struggle with many hardships along the road. Always looking for a new adventure or challenge in my life. I am grateful at the moment of being aware that I need to travel back into my childhood to understand all aspects of pain, sorrow and joy to be where I am today. In the greater scheme of life I hope my life's tapestry will be one of compassion, love and sharing life with the beautiful souls who have ventured into my life. I also wanted to be remembered as someone who loved passionately to share, tell stories for personal growth and encouragement. When my picture is complete I would like it to be of a beautiful soul who did her best.

Once again I was reminded how easy it is to forget to be politically correct. Having served on 3 boards respectively, 4 , 9 and 24 years, I found it fascinating and sad how many personal agendas were tied into the overall direction of how these boards would be run. My view was to do my best to bring awareness, insight and knowledge to move an organization forward to the betterment of all members.
In the end I left all three for the same reason. Sadly we need to withdraw when we feel our views are no longer valued. In the world of instant gratification we also need to be politically correct in our work ethics or words used in addressing others be it the spoken word or the written .On occasion I found myself guilty in both areas. When this occurs I comply and rectify how the error has been made.
These are all life lessons. I view it as the seasons passing. Spring is about cultivating, fertilizing and applying seeds to nurture. Summer is watering, pulling weeds and encourage growth. Fall is in the abundance of the labour put into your seeds to harvest. Winter is about revisiting all the good, acknowledge the changes needed for the next crop and deciding what works best for you.

Personal Healing: Nov 11
I have chosen to release the emotional trauma of my memory loss. When you don't remember the pain of emotional issues it is higher self saying. If I stuff this down I can survive and carry on for the moment and then it is held in the cellular memory of the body.
I personally want to be clear out the cellular memory that no longer serves me. We all carry memories from good and bad experiences. So car accidents, falling off your bike, being abused , mentally, physically, even the unkind word. NO one is exempt. The more you stuff it down the more issues you have accumulated. We must know our body and its response to outside influences, its basic weaknesses, strengths, what we can handle and what we cannot. A dis-ease manifestation most often occurs in a weak area of the body and can be the result of stress and/or susceptibility due to basic genetics of the individual. When we are aware of such weakness and susceptibilities, we can take measures to strengthen and protect ourselves from imbalance, despite the role of genetics.
This is Ill-ness, and dis-ease I am not berating anyone who had an illness. I am stating that this is personal choice to heal the emotions behind the issue at a soul level. All forms of matter are simply the manifestation of energy -Universal Consciousness. Physical Health depends on all the surrounding environmental influences as well as the spiritual and mental states. When we are fully balanced we see, hear, and feel and act differently that when we are feeling unbalanced.
All ancient scriptures speak of the body being a temple.. You can be the most gifted spiritual person alive, but if you do not give proper care through, diet, exercise, rest and breathing of the physical temple, problems will arise and manifest. in love and light
"Life is a series of experiences, each of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching onward."Henry Ford"
Orgone products are powerful in negating EMF's (Electro Magnetic Frequency). The startling reality is that many of us will be affected by magnetic fields created in houses, cars and cell phones. EMF's are everywhere. No One has really told us exactly what potential threat EMF's possess. There are too many studies (epidemiological) with positive findings for this health issue to be overlooked.
EMF's are produced by power plants and the frequencies are transmitted to all electrical wiring, transformers, cell phones, magnetic fields, fridges, furnaces, radios. You get the picture. It goes on and on. It can accumulate and cause health issues.
Orgone products also have many positive effects such as clear emotional blocks , relieve mental and physical stress, create a more harmonious home & workplace. To check it out for yourself look at research done by the Biologist - Wilhelm Reich and the Physicist - Nikola Tesla.
I personally had major issues when I moved 3 km north of a Solar Farm with 250,000 Solar Panels which is increasing yearly. I also have a metal roof and a metal bridge of eight teeth. The electromagnetic field ( EMF'S) began causing MEMORY LOSS, major fatigue, not being able to sleep in my bedroom as I was over the furnace room. I could fall asleep in a blink of an eye sitting in the chair in the living room. The moment my head hit the pillow, in the bedroom, I was wide awake.
Humans are electrical creatures. Our Neurological systems function by using electrical currents (cerebral cortex, cortical tracts) and we are able to create our own electricity without outside mechanism involved. The Organite changes the exposure of the electromagnetic fields to change the frequency and energy being absorbed by the devices. I can now think clearly Have great energy and am back on track with my projects. I have placed Organite Pyramids in many areas of my home that have electric appliances such a computers, appliances, furnace room.

Past Lives. Nov 3
When I embarked on learning meditation I started to go to all the classes that I could possibly attend. I wanted to experience everything available, to be better at my own meditations. I was showing others how to meditate and knew this would enhance my methodology. It wasn't long before I was incorporating how Past Lives explained many insights into relationships, fears, and attitudes. Then I began assisting clients to work through past lives.
I was blessed with the ability to see and direct them on their journey to move to incidents that had impacted their lives in a negative way. Years later in a meditation I was directed to take the course in Hypnosis to be recognized for the work I had been already doing for years Now the certificate hangs proudly in my office amongst a few others.
The course had a great teacher and gave me wonderful insights on how to make the process easier for me. Courses always give new awareness along with confirmation that you are on the right track. in love and light

My first Healing Message. Nov 2
I was about 17 years of age. Mom had a regular visit from Mary one of the locals. Mary spent most of her time alone as she had no kids and her husband was a travelling Evangelist Minister. As far back as I can remember I never met him.
I was aware she was a very lonely older lady and like to visit our family. The community considered her slightly touched. I don't think so, just odd. Her Christmas Tree was left up all year. She's arrive an hour or so before dinner, knowing that mom would included her. She'd have to share what ever what being made. She always complimented mom as she was grateful to be included. When dusk arrived early mom would insist someone had to walk her home.
During one of her visits she told us that she had tripped and fallen and now required a cane for assistance. He husband told her the cane was an issue because of her carelessness. This made her feel very emotional and guilty. I walked her home that night.
Mary's dad had passed away a number of years earlier and told he spoke to me and said to remind Mary that" IT WAS AN ACCIDENT,NOT CARELESSNESS. YOUR HUSBAND IS AN INCONSIDERATE MAN, STOP LISTENING TO HIM.HE WANTS YOU TO FEEL BAD."
This was the first time I admitted and spoke out loud about messages from spirit. I told Mary no one would believe her if she shared what I told her, as they all thought she was crazy. I was aware the message gave her great comfort and released the guilt. Many times over the years she told me how much my information had tremendously helped her..
So spirit reminded me that this was the first time I acknowledged spirit out loud helped another to heal emotional wounds. Yes, that was the beginning. I am still doing my best. Love what I do. in love and light

Knowing Nov 1
I was engaged to my first Husband, Walter. Every Saturday and Sunday Night we went dancing. I was in heaven. He loved me and the passion to dance as much as I did. I even danced on Roller skates growing up. That is how I met this husband John. That is a whole other story.
One Sunday he called to say he could not keep our date. I accepted his explanation and never gave it another thought. So Wednesday Nights were movie nights for us. On Wednesday night as he walked through the door. I looked at him and asked:"Was it worth it"?. He turned red and said "What are you talking about"? I asked "Was the little French Canadian girl worth breaking our date?" He broke into tears apologized saying he would never do it again. I accepted his apology. They say love is blind. Actually I believe the ego gets in the way as you don't want to believe that if someone loves you they would do this.
Yes, 5 years later we separated. I was a prize possession, not a partner to share everything with. This lovely man was not the individual that would be a companion and future life partner. I moved on. Do not lie to a Medium, they may not say anything, but it does not mean they don't KNOW.
"Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take." in love and light
