Three Amazing Books

Tuesday, 09 September 2014 by

Over the years, I’ve been doing hypnosis and past-life exploration with clients, and I thought I pretty well had it mapped out on how it all worked and what was actually happening during the exploration process. But I’ve been reading some books lately that are disrupting my deepest beliefs about everything. It will definitely affect

Shades of “The Knick”

Sunday, 24 August 2014 by

Clients often ask me pertaining to their long-term, difficult-to-diagnose health problems, the questions of “What’s wrong with me? Why can’t all these doctors find the real problem?” Those are questions that I can’t even attempt to answer, because the underlying “reason” for someone’s presenting problems could lie in other levels of that person’s being. We

Changing a Mind

Friday, 20 June 2014 by

This title is performing double-duty. I began by starting to write about yesterday’s ‘sitting at the kitchen table’ situation of explaining what Past-Life Exploration was to a more skeptical friend, and how it was my patient, detailed response to her scowling question of “Why would anyone want to do that?” that inspired this title; meaning

Simply Being Ourselves

Wednesday, 04 June 2014 by

Long ago, as a young woman in my early 20’s, I remember asking aloud this question: “What is so wrong about being who I really am?” Took a few decades of experience to answer it simply as “Wrongness isn’t even a consideration in my life, as long as I’m doing what I feel I’m meant

I love jigsaw puzzles—1000 piece, 1500 piece—bring it on! My fascination with them is so pronounced that it becomes a winter obsession once a box is dumped out onto the table awaiting sorting by colors, textures, and border pieces. I spend hours in this focused endeavor to make sense of the chaotic randomness scattered within

What Is Past-Life Exploration?

Monday, 28 April 2014 by

Over the last two months I’ve done another half-dozen Past-Life Explorations for clients, and it would seem that no matter how many I do, I’m still as mystified as the clients are at how these sessions seamlessly unfold for them.  The extensive range of our life experiences throughout eons of time is both unfathomable and yet

On Wings of Transformation

Sunday, 06 April 2014 by

During this Iowa spring-weather changeover, while driving to and from work lately, I’ve noticed that there are fewer eagles flying overhead and that the turkey buzzards have replaced them in their fly-zones. Not sure how that goes up in the skies—who decides to vacate when and who else instantly takes their place, but it seems

Paying the Bills

Tuesday, 01 April 2014 by

Here we are, the first of the month (April 1st—no fooling) so with a handful of bills in one hand and my checkbook in the other, I give a long sigh saying, “Goodbye money—hope to see more of you again soon.” That’s the contract we make with those who provide us goods and services: we

Healing vs. Curing

Friday, 28 March 2014 by

In the healthcare profession, if you are fond of playing in quicksand, take on the subject of Healing vs. Curing. How are they similar? What are the differences? And what does it even mean to heal someone or to cure someone? Many of us who work in complementary or alternative healthcare fields try very hard
