First of all, we are all creators!  We are constantly creating our lives by our beliefs, words and actions.   Our thoughts are things and our spoken and written words are even more powerful! By tapping in to our creativity we come alive. It’s the reason why we are here to share with others our thoughts, words and emotions.
Some people express themselves through the written word, art, music, singing, dance and even coloring lately ( coloring is making a big return activity for many adults, and it’s fun too).
For many years, as long as I can remember actually, I was told that my singing voice was beautiful. I loved to sing and honestly, sometimes when I would hit certain notes my body was so very happy! It came from deep within my soul and I truly felt complete. It took some practice to get to that point though –  years of vocal training and exercises every day. Practice, practice, practice……….
At home I would sing, at work I would sing.  I was actually invited to sing in a couple of weddings.  It was a challenge for me with having stage fright (which is very common) but I did it and got some very nice feedback about it too!
Is there something that’s calling to you to create? It could be anything! We each have our own gifts and talents and self expression is our gift to the world.
Before I write, it’s interesting, it feels like a fountain of words bubbling up inside my body waiting to be released. Once I get everything down on paper or my iPad I feel empty and peaceful.
What gift could you be to yourself, to others and even to the world if you allowed yourself to create it?  I wonder…………
Here’s to your health and well being!

John of God Crystal Healing Bed

A few years ago a very dear friend of mine was led to go to Brazil and visit the Casa where John of God is. She’d had health issues for many years and was always searching for healing places on this planet. ( she’s also the one who found the Warm Mineral Springs, her name is Ruby.) Her intuition is pretty sharp and had instructed her to travel all the way to Brazil where this amazing energy is. I plan to go at some point but haven’t made it there yet.
Anyway, in Abadiania, Brazil, there is a medium who heals people from all over the world and his name is John of God. His Casa, where the healings occur, is located on a huge Quartz Crystal and the energy is supposedly off the charts.
Powerful things happen here, Angels, orbs and light beings are everywhere.
My friend stayed for 3 weeks and her experiences were profound. When she returned I noticed she was different, happier and lighter, not so burdened as she had been before she had left. Her heart had opened and for the first time since I’d known her she was happy! She had always been in tremendous pain and understandably that had taken its toll on her.
But now, here she was, a butterfly, so to speak, happy as could be, I was very impressed!
There were others who were staying at the Casa when she was and they connected and became friends. Well, these 2 people (one of them is a Unity minister) started having gatherings at people’s homes, this is how I came into the picture. The first, big gathering was at First Unity Church in St. Petersburg, Fl and it was powerful, lots of amazing healings occurred, I was thrilled, as I am an energy junkie ( I believe I’ve mentioned this before 😉)! After the service they had also brought back some lovely items such as Quartz crystals, amethyst rosaries, and other beautiful items to purchase.
It was about this time that a very generous friend of the Minister, Temple Hayes, loaned her personal JOG Crystal Healing Bed to First Unity to have for anyone who wanted to experience it available. In the past I had been fortunate enough to facilitate it ( volunteered) by placing people on the bed and clearing the energy between guests.
It was an honor to be a part of something very special. I’ve seen some pretty amazing healings happen with the Crystal bed, and received some myself. I loved working in the energy, it’s beautiful!
My first two visits to a JOG Crystal bed were in California, first at Harbin Hot Springs and the second time on the same bed but a different location not far from Harbin. The experiences were profound but very different between CA and FL.
The Crystal bed is actually a massage table with 7 large Vogel cut clear quartz crystals pointing down at each chakra of the person laying on the table. Each Crystal has a colored light aligning with the chakra that puts the person on the table in a deep state of mediation while the Angels or entities, do their healing work on you.  The energy works holistically, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You set your intention and then the healers come in and usually they give you exactly what you need whether you are aware of what you need or not! I honestly can’t say enough good about it. Like most energy work it is gentle yet powerful.
If you are in the St. Petersburg area, I’d advise making an appointment to try it out, you can call the church, “First Unity” or their bookstore “Wings” for an appointment.
Here’s to your health and wellbeing!

The Power of Gratitude


Ah, the incredible power of Gratitude, it is profound! If you are seeking happiness, peace and a sense of well being, try starting each day by naming 5 things you are grateful for.  Taking this small step, you give yourself the powerful gift of leveling up your mood by recognizing what is positive in your life.  By doing this first thing in the morning,  you will set the tone for a great day ahead.   Once before going to sleep, it prepares you for a good nights rest and a happy day ahead.  It’s amazing how one good thought or question can change what could have been a day of struggle into a day of smooth sailing.

So, the question is,  “how happy do you want to get?”  I don’t care who you are, you can find at least 3 things to be grateful for.

Here are some examples:  gratitude for another day of life, healthy lungs that breathe air, eyes that can see, your child’s good health, food on the table, a safe, comfortable home, pure, clean drinking water, etc. even down to the color of your toothbrush! ( I know that’s a reach, but you get the idea.)

There are some people who are denied these things that we sometimes take for granted. When you focus on the positives in your life, you receive more to be grateful for.  That’s how the universe works.  What we focus on grows, so make it positive!

Given the choice, why not choose to be happy? It’s much more fun and other people will want to be around you much more!

Here’s to your health and happiness!
