IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE !!!!! True love, the love vibration begins with the love that we have for ourselves. Are you nurturing your physical, emotional and spiritual needs? Can you look in the mirror and say “I love myself exactly as I am”. When we love ourselves and accept ourselves with all our imperfections ~ then we can truly love another ~ whether it is family members, friends, co-workers or a romantic partner. So the month of February, your homework is to nurture and pamper yourself. You are No. 1. Take the time to do things that you love to do. In your quiet time, put your hands on your heart and say loving affirmations to yourself. When you are with people, smile ~ laugh ~ hug. Surround yourself with beauty ~ the beauty of nature is everywhere. Surround yourself with happy, positive people. Skip, jump, dance, sing. Play with your pets. Play with your children. Declare to the world – “I am happy to be alive and I love myself and my life exactly as it is”. “I am grateful for all my blessings”. The more you can stay in this high vibration of love and gratefulness – the more you will start seeing the changes in your life that you desire. Sound too simple? Try it !!!! On Valentines Day, celebrate the light of God that burns brightly withiyour heart and allow this light, this love, and this kindness to shine upon a world that is much in need.

2013 Oh My !!!!

It's been awhile since I wrote in my blog. Oh my, how time flies !!!! So as I reflect on the last year, it brings me JOY and gratefulness to know that as I am the creator of my life, this movie (called my life) is unfolding exactly as it should. Oh yes, there are still challenges, obstacles, delays and the emotional roller coaster ride from time to time - but only when I surrender and go with the flow, I realize how life is so perfect. I am surrounded by a circle of fabulous friends & family, abundance, great health and energy, work in holistic therapies which is my passion and I appreciate all the beauty, wonder and magic around me. I celebrated my 60th birthday in July in California with some wonderful friends. Our spiritual journey to Mount Shasta was a 5th dimension experience - it was all about singing, laughing, joy and love, love, love ! So, am I blessed? YES I AM ! ..... and I look forward to creating the next chapter of my life, called "Infinite Possibilities and Magical Bliss in 2014" IN 2014, I VOW TO: * LISTEN TO THE PASSION OF MY SOUL, SET THE WINGS OF MY SPIRIT FREE AND LET NOT A SINGLE SONG GO UNSUNG * IMAGINE THE MOST OUTRAGEOUSLY POSITIVE POSSIBILITY FOR MY LIFE. I CLAIM IT AND CONSIDER IT DONE !! * FILL MY HEART WITH PEACE AND SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD * LOVINGLY TAKE TIME TO CARE FOR MY MIND, BODY AND SOUL * DREAM BIG AND BELIEVE THAT ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE * LIVE WITHOUT PRETENDING, LOVE WITHOUT DEPENDING, LISTEN WITHOUT DEFENDING, SPEAK WITHOUT OFFENDING * GIVE WITHOUT REASON, CARE BEYOND HOPE, LOVE WITHOUT LIMIT; REACH, STRETCH AND DREAM, IN SPITE OF MY FEARS * LIVE AUTHENTICALLY, ATTUNED TO THE MIND OF GOD THAT BROADCASTS THROUGH ME AS ORIGINALITY, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, KINDNESS, HARMONY AND WHOLENESS * ALWAYS BE IN GRATITUDE FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS, MAGIC AND PEOPLE IN MY LIFE ♥ "Make me strong in spirit, courageous in action, gentle of heart. Let me act in wisdom, conquer my fears and doubt, discover my own hidden gifts, meet others with compassion, BE a source of healing energies and face each day with hope and joy".

Reflections on 2009

As 2009 is coming to a close, I am sitting here and reflecting on the year that has passed.
These last few days before the NEW year unfolds becomes very surreal as I slip away from time to time re-membering all the wonder-filled moments and experiences I have lived and all the beautiful people who I have shared this journey with. Yes, there were some challenges, working hard, not having enough time to do everything I wanted - but I KNOW I AM the creator of my life. I created this last year with my thoughts, desires, e-motions. I have learned what works for me - what brings me joy - what excites me and I will take this and create more of this for 2010. I may not exactly know how everything will turn out in 2010 - but somehow deep down in my being - I have faith and belief that it will be an exiting year - why? Because I AM the creator and I can create anything I want. All my deepest desires from my heart have been there forever and it is time to flourish and bloom and BE all that I came here to BE and DO. All the pain, sadness and hurt from years gone by are fading and I feel such a deep PEACE and JOY. A wonderful prayer I learned is the Ho'oponopono Prayer. Think of everyone on your path - family, friends co-workers and even people who have passed on. Think of one person at a time, place your hands on your heart and say "I am sorry, Please forgive me, I forgive you, I love you, I appreciate you". I was surprised to do this and feel like a million pounds was lifted from my shoulders.
We all do the best we can in life and there is no need to judge others or ourselves.
From deep within my soul and heart, I hear the clarion call and I respond.
I am ready to fly and soar and serve.
Welcome 2010. I am ready. I am love. I am peace. I am joy. I am..........

Angel of Gratitude
Today is time for thanks. Every day is a time for thanks. When we can appreciate the simplest of gifts even in times of confusion and hardships, then we move forward.
A soul that appreciates the gifts of living, the true gifts, will reap rewards from being grateful and appreciative. Prayers are heard and answered. Prayers of thanks are highly important. They work with the soul for the highest good. As with anything, simply acknowledge the opportunity to excperience the moment is of value. Be aware and respectful of all the gifts offered to us. The wise soul can look at all situations as a way for personal growth and advancement.
Those that suffer must know that the grief will pass and be replaced with invaluable insight and softer emotions.
Go all the way and you will find what you need. You will find what is always there: an infinite supply of love and energy. For God forsakes no one. Give thanks for today, give thanks for you. For without you, there would not be this moment now. As you know, there will always be you. Your soul will remain forever. Treat your soul right and start by thanking God for your unique being, beauty and potential.

Make it a habit to tell people THANK YOU. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.

In the Void I AM

"Just because I feel I am going nowhere doesn't mean I don't know where to go. Sometimes the smartest move I can make is no move at all. In time, I know I'll be on my true path once again".

I must admit, I am in the Void again. Seems to be a place I visit often - less often in the last few years I must say - but I am back.

I am 56 years old. I have been in the fashion industry - corporate world for 39 years. I am in my present company now for 17 years. Yes, everything I do, I stay a long time. Is this being committed or is it that I just like being in the "comfort zone"? My spiritual and healing journey began when I was a teenager in the late 60's. I always knew that I was "unique" and different and chose to take the path least travelled. This was my calling and I listened. I was always guided to the right teachers and healers at the right time. I knew that this was what I wanted to do also. My mission was clear ~ to serve, motivate and inspire others. I questioned alot where this came from as I had the most devestating fear of speaking in public and only overcame this in the last few years. So I began taking courses, workshops and retreats to heal myself. I went back to school , took courses and became certified in Holistic Therapies, Reiki, IET, shamanism, energetic healing, chinese medicine, accupressure, herbology and the list goes on. In 2004 I started teaching workshops to Adults, Teens and Kids and saw clients for one on one private sessions. I loved it. I was in my passion and joy. I bought a house in 2007 with the intention of having my practice in my basement. I was happy, creative, joyful, in the flow and trusting. I was working 7 days a week ! :) Five days at the corporate job and seeing clients and teaching workshops at night and on weekends. Oh oh, got a little burned out, so decided to take the summer off and rejuvenate, relax, take time for myself. I have en-joyed every moment of the summer....

But now it is September and I am wondering where I am going. I feel change in the air. New directions. I feel a tremendous opportunity is just around the corner, new doors opening, new adventures, new beginnings. I sense it all but it is not manifesting. So I am in the void. This made me feel uncomfortable all week. I was angry, I was sad, I was impatient. Then my little voice said "It is okay to be in the void."

On the medicine wheel at my shamanic retreat this summer, I was EAGLE. I have waited all my life to take wing, to be myself and speak my truth. It is time to go within and trust. My spirit is calling me to jump off the cliff. I am ready. I am excited. Okay, now my patience is back knowing that it is all worth it. I trust and I surrender. I am supported, I am guided, I am loved.

Stay tuned for the next exciting chapter.......

From my heart ~~ to yours, Karen

Allow spirit to step in, to hear its calm voice of reassurance and a gentle reminder that you are a child of the Creator, powerful beyond your imagining and you hold the key to creating a reality that reflects your greatness, divinity and the unconditional love that is your divine birthright if you will stand quietly in the space of 'not knowing' and wait for the voice of spirit to guide you.

The only way to get what you really want, is to know what you really want.
And the only way to know what you really want, is to know yourself.
And the only way to know yourself, is to be yourself.
And the only way to be yourself, is to listen to your heart.

Animal Lover I AM

I was just sitting here and thinking how happy my three cats make me. They entertain me, love me, make me laugh, they are cuddly and affectionate and just plain wonderful. God certainly knew what he was doing when he created animals. I would own dogs and other animals if I could, but with my busy lifestyle ~ three cats are easiest to take care of.
Apollo is 13 years old. Very affectionate and loving with me, but likes his own space and likes to be left alone. When people come over, he may hide and sleep the whole time or he may come out for a little while to check out the company. When Apollo's sister, Athena, died 2 years ago, we were devastated. I never imagined that I could feel so much grief and emptiness by losing my devoted companion.
After months of many friends offering me animals, I visited a friend who told me her neighbours cat had three kittens. I visited and fell in love with Oliver at one month old. I told the neighbour that I would be back in another month to pick him up. I did and there is no doubt that he was the one for me. He looks like a maine coon ~ very affectionate, loving, playful ~a total joie de vivre. Oliver, now at 2 years old is a Reiki Feline Master and my assistant :) Very interesting story. A few weeks after I had brought him home, I was giving a Reiki Level l workshop in my home. Oliver has always been a very playful, frisky and curious cat. The day of the workshop, he stayed in the circle and when I had finished giving the attunements to my students, we found him under one of the chairs - on his back, purring and totally zoned out. I must admit I was little worried, because he stayed in that position the rest of the day ~ this was not normal for Oliver. But the next day, he was back to his usual playful self. The same thing happened for Reiki Level ll, Advanced Reiki Training and Reiki Master. For all levels, I found him under a chair receiving the attunements. So of course, he has received his certificate for Reiki Feline Master. When I teach my other workshops or when I see clients for private healing sessions ~ he always knows what to do to make the person comfortable. He always sits at their feet or jumps on their lap and looks into their eyes. There is such a strong healing power that eminates from his cute little body. Everyone always says how extra wonderful they feel after a session or workshop. Oliver is my very special healing assistant.
I thought 2 cats were enough to handle, but one day, my friend who does cat and dog rescues, told me about Carly who needed a home after being abandoned and put out into the freezing cold in the winter months. After an examination by a vet and a bill of good health, I brought her home. It was a little touchy at first because Oliver and especially Apollo were not ready to accept anyone new in the house. It took awhile, many growls and hisses, but now there is contentment and harmony in the household. Carly has turned into a beautiful, affectionate cat. She has so much gratitude for her new home, her new loving family, nourishing food and a comfy bed (mine) to sleep in every night. After a few months of hiding when people came over, she is now greeting them at the door and also assisting in all the workshops and private sessions.
All this to say that I am very grateful for all the love that I receive from my companions. I also notice that they are so much my mirrors and teachers ~ with their independence, their attitude, their playfulness, their loving nature ~ they constantly teach me and remind me to live in the moment, go with the flow, to relax, to trust and surrender that all is well.
