Last year in February 2020, I just celebrated my birthday with friends and then everything was locked down because of Covid (CVD). A few months in, I felt like I was being lied to. I wasn’t sure from whom or what, but I felt like the narrative was false about the virus. As everyone in the world panicked about the virus, I made sure I stayed away from media posts and news outlets, and I did my best to disconnect from the fear surrounding CVD.
As the year continued, I noticed that people were contracting it and announcing friends and relatives were dying from it on social media. But I had this strange sensation that I was just observing this and not partaking in it. I told my closest friends that I felt like I was on a different timeline, that it was happening all around me but not to me.
I must be honest that I thought everyone would contract it eventually and I still feel this way. However, I believe my immune system is strong and I felt like when I did get it, it would be mild. Well, I was wrong about that. In July I tested positive for CVD. The previous two weeks before the test, I had spent time with my family at the beach and taught several Reiki classes to a small group of students. On the first day of symptoms, I woke up with a stomachache and had it all day till I got a bad headache later that evening. I also had a strange tickle in my throat that I thought was odd.
The next several days I developed a bad head cold: I was stuffed up and had sinus pain but no runny nose. I also lost my sense of smell but not my taste and I started to worry that I had CVD. I got tested and tested positive. Let me tell you I was devastated and a little shocked. I guess I was participating in this timeline now.
On the same day I got tested, that evening I got a migraine. It started at the base of my neck, as a lot of my headaches start, but I began to see auras and I knew what that meant…I am not sure if it was CVD or worry and stress over CVD that triggered it. The next day, which was day six of my symptoms, I started to cough, and I maintained a low-grade fever from 99-101 for the next week. In addition, I felt tired and short of breath when I walked up and down the stairs.
Once I started to feel unwell and worried about this progressing badly, I posted on social media that I tested positive for CVD and asked for my fellow energy healers and prayer warriors for their help. I knew that this would give me an extra boost in healing, and it did. Thirty minutes after posted, I was laying in bed and felt suddenly hot and I knew that I was feeling all the well wishes from my family and friends. Lots of people messaged me to check in on me, got me medicine and dropped it off at my house, and called me while I was laid up watching 90 Day Finance 😊
I was never bed ridden. I got up every day, changed my clothes and walked downstairs no matter how funky I was feeling. I really didn’t have any energy so all I could do was watch TV. I couldn’t even read because I was experiencing sinus headaches, which I discovered that drinking coconut water could alleviate! I slept well, besides the coughing that would trigger when I first laid down to sleep. Sucking on a cough drop before I went to bed alleviated that.
It's been a long time since I had the flu, maybe over 20 years ago but when people describe having the flu, they say it feels like “you’ve been hit by a truck.” I never felt like that because I was not bedridden. But I did feel like I had a mild flu because it took two weeks to really get better. Everyday I would say to myself that tomorrow would be better, and I felt the same. This was frustrating because as a healthy person with no illnesses, this seemed to take it’s time going through me.
Emotionally it was scary. There is a lot of fear wrapped up around CVD and energy wise you can get sucked into it. It felt like there was this massive blob of fear that connected its tentacles to me and wanted to consume me and I said no, I am not doing that. Every time my mind started to panic about what could happen, I had to stop that thought and repeat a positive mantra to myself, like “I am a healthy person, my immune system is strong, my body can fight this” etc. Imagine someone that doesn’t know how to manage their thoughts and their fears? You can drop down a dark hole of fear as a result quickly.
I was angry I got it and confused on how I contracted it. I contacted everyone that I was with that previous two weeks before the symptoms started, and no one was sick or got sick. Two of my students tested negative for the virus and never got sick. As I traced my activities the previous two weeks, I am sure I got the CVD when I was at the beach and probably shopping even though I sanitized my hands every time I got back in the car. Or I got it from someone who was asymptomatic.
After I recovered and the fever went away, the cough stayed for a few weeks. I also have not gotten my smell back completely but it’s coming back incrementally. I get excited when I am in another room and I smell what’s cooking in the kitchen, like garlic bread. After my fever went away, I felt down, almost depressed. I call it the CVD depression. This is very unlike me. I was thinking thoughts like, what’s the point, who cares, everyone is a possible contaminant. This lasted several days. I spoke and cried to my husband about it and that helped me get through it, after that I was better. Once I was over the doldrums hump, I felt different like my heart was opened. I felt compassionate toward myself and everyone else. It was quite surprising!
I feel like I had to get CVD to work on CVD energetically and spiritually if that makes sense. Part of my mission on the planet is to do massive clearings and ceremonies to track this planet onto more benevolent timelines. I feel like I have received the green light to do this because I got through CVD. And since then, I have been working on it with my light worker friends.
Last week I received a huge validation from my doctor. Because I got the virus and was unvaccinated, my level of antigens is 13 times the level of someone who was vaccinated. This claim is the result of studying Israel and its experience with CVD. She also told me that I had immunity to all future variants. What a relief!
Up until I got the virus, I was ignoring what was happening with the world because of it. Of course, now I can no longer do this. I feel like I received an additional awakening because of it and now I see more clearly now what is going on in the world.
Lastly, the virus is not anyone’s fault. Right now, everyone seems to point their fingers at each other, trying to find someone to blame for the virus. We are all innocent. However, the virus is out there, and we have to learn to live with it. Let’s try to be more compassionate with each other and help each other through this. Blaming, judging, and attacking one another doesn’t help anything.
I have been experiencing some odd symptoms since I have recovered. For three weeks I had abdominal pain and saw my doctor and test results came back normal. When the abdominal pain eased, I started to get a tickle in my throat that turned into a sore throat, that has already lasted three weeks despite taking allergy medicine and testing negative for strep. I am started to realize that these may be long haul symptoms even though, ironically, I never had a sore throat when sick with CVD.
PS Vaccination, whether you chose one or not, is a super contentious subject right now. I refuse to get in a debate over this. It’s an individual choice and if you disagree with me you can go ahead and disconnect from me. If I receive messages that include blame, judgement, or attack, you will be blocked. Your blame, judgement and attacks are the result of your fear that you have projected out to others. My suggestion would be to work on your fear, manage your fearful thoughts and try to find your inner calm, however you might choose to. Once you do this you will be open to the truth.
Three years ago I visited an amazing place, the Montana Megaliths in the Helena MT area. I was signed up for a newsletter that spoke about them the first time and then I ended up forwarding it to a friend. She ended up traveling there in 2017 to see them and then asked me if I wanted to see them in 2018. The keeper and discovered of these megaliths is Julie Ryder and you can’t see them without her accompanying you. To this day she is is still discovering more megalithic structures and more recently, fossilized beings. She does an excellent job of explaining what she has found and linking to other researchers on her website www.montanamegaliths.com
Back To Giant’s Playground
I decided to visit the area again in June 2021 because of all the new sites to see. My friend I mentioned above accompanied me as well. The first place we revisited was Giants Playground. It’s always neat to see this place and the beings there are amazing. It really feels like giants just stacked rocks into formations and that you could play with in the area: you can stand under large dolmens like the Evergreen Dolmen or crawl through places under the rocks. Other areas have a healing energy to them and one wants to stand near the stones, or touch them with your hands or forehead.
Some of these rocks seems like they were naturally put there, but once you see their formations, and study them, you suddenly start to see faces and figures in the stones. When I was in France in 2017, I saw something similar in a cave there. It takes an open mind and practice to see the faces and formations. Luckily my friend and I can readily see them and Julie actually expressed her gratefulness to us that we were quick to recognize what they were. I can imagine it would be exhausting to explain that there was a formation there and someone stands there and never sees it.
One of the megalithic stone structures in Giant’s Playground is the Pink Vault and it’s simply astounding. There’s no way this is natural but was put there by humans, ancient astronauts or beings with a sophisticated technology (whether from Earth or not).
There was another pink granite stone sandwiched by grey stones in Giant's Playground that was unnamed. After some pondering, I came up with the name Resurrection Stone.
I was excited to see the fossilized dragons. We saw many of them on this trip. My two favorite ones were what I called Baby Dragon with her magnificent eye and the Bejeweled Dragon (she didn’t have a name and Julie allowed me to name her).
I was especially interested to see the Dragon Eye because it looked so amazing in the pics. It’s located right off a dirt road. I was able to walk up a short steep area to reach her and I was able to put my hands right on the rock and touch my forehead to her. The power emanating from her was strong and my friend mentioned it as well, it was so powerful that when I closed my eyes and touched the rocks, the ground seemed to move beneath me as well as the rocks beneath my hands. As I connected to her energy I realized which was trapped within the rock and I knew that I had to release her. I asked her if she would like to stay in the area or go back to her home planet. She replied she would like to go home. I watched as her energy left the rock and she was released into the skies. When you help release a being, it feels amazing, like you’ve been holding your breath for a long time and can finally exhale. It feels similar to when a ghost finalizes goes home into the light.
My other favorite dragon was at the Gates to the Mountains complex along the Missouri River. This dragon was also located along a road and she was huge. She had an interesting formation around her neck that looked like a collar. I was able to walk up to this dragon as well and touch the stones at her foundation. Once I did I realized that she was trapped there as well. The collar was keeping her there. Like the baby dragon, the energy was very strong and I felt like the stones I was touching were moving under my fingers as well as under my feet. I released her from the rock and she decided to stay in the area instead of returning home. Since she was free, her collar became a bejeweled one, hence her name the Bejeweled Dragon.
Speaking of being trapped, there are Giant feet in the area that looks like they have shackles around their ankles. I was called to release them as well but soon realized that they were casualties of war and their captors, also giants, did not want to release them. So their story is to be continued.
It was difficult to see the feet formations but Julie has wonderful pics of them on her website.
If you ever get a chance to go out to Montana I highly recommend it. I have been to Montana six times and will continue to visit in the future.
There are mainly two types of spirits that may attach to a person: a ghost which is a person who lived and died but has not fully transitioned into the light or a non-human spirit entity. The latter is a being that has an inner light but has forgotten or turned away from it. It could be anything from a shadow person to a demonic entity, what I call a dark entity or a trickster.
Spirit attachments are quite common, and I encounter them a lot. What would make you vulnerable to a spirit attachment? The following are instances that could make you vulnerable:
Signs and symptoms if a Spirit Attachment
There are many signs and symptoms, but some of the typical ones are:
Phrases that Indicate a Spirit Attachment
What are the options for healing and removing a spirit attachment? First all seek a professional to remove it. This healer must have a shamanic ability, this includes psychic and mediumship skills. If you do nothing about a spirit attachment you will continue to suffer from the effects of it, including loss of energy, interference with your goals and passions, feeling like you’re being watched or feeling uncomfortable knowing that another entity is close by etc. The non-human entities may grow stronger over time or affect your family members and feed off their energy as well. This could very well lead to possession, although this will take some time and will not happen as quickly the movies portray it to happen. By the way I have not encountered anyone possessed by an entity but only affected negatively by one or more of them.
The key is to do not panic! After all the ghost or entity feeds off negative energy, so you are only providing more “food” for them. Seek the right help so you can move on with your life.
If you would like clarification on spirit attachments or suspect you have one, I offer a Shamanic Energy Clearing Session that will scan your energy field for attachments, energetic cords that are not good for you and ill wishes/hexes/curses that may be affecting you. The latter is not common, but I do encounter them.

It’s been six months since we went on lockdown because of Covid-19 and it literally has changed everything and…not. Let me explain, in the beginning I was listening to the news, watching the Covid maps and paying attention to the numbers but about a few months in I FELT like I was not getting a perspective on Covid that was based on truth…The reason why I capitalized FELT is because this is the basis of our intuition and our intuition never steers us wrong. Unfortunately in our culture in the USA, we are not taught to listen to our feelings and told to focus on thought analysis instead. In my opinion, this disconnects us from our feelings and intuition which directly connects us to our higher selves. As a result of feeling like I was being lied to, I unsubscribed to the news outlets, stopped listening to the news and disconnected to what I call the Beast of Fear because I no longer wanted to feed it. Now things seem more normal to me, of course I know that things have changed, but it doesn’t really affect me until I have to go shopping and wear a mask and I avoid that a lot.
I was reflecting on Covid and what it means big picture wise—I always think and reflect in this way. It makes sense that one of my power animals is hawk, because hawk requires me to rise above the details and look at the big picture. I often think about my ancestors and the struggles that they went through to survive and there were many. My maternal grandmother was an orphan in the Philippines and she lost her entire family to the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. She married young, at the age of 16, and I assume it was because she literally had no one left to take care of her. I understand that this fear or trauma can be passed down to future generations down to me. I am happy to say that I have not allowed Covid-19 to trigger a fear within me that may have come from my grandmother’s experience (her fear was extremely valid of course). This is part of why I am here is to break unhealthy ancestral patterns, including traumatic ones.
Furthermore, I performed a meditation to connect with my ancestors. I saw them all lined up in rows, almost a starburst pattern and I was in the center. My maternal grandparents were standing there smiling at me and grandfather took my hands in his and said, “Tina, we gave you the very worst familial patterns to heal.” He looked at me with great compassion. I nodded my head, knowing what all this has meant so far and still what I must do.
Perhaps there’s a pattern in your family that you want to heal, whether it’s addiction, depression, anxiety, mental illness or even a pattern like giving up on one’s health because life is simply too hard. Maybe you are already aware of it or maybe after some reflection, you suddenly identify it. You are not stuck with this pattern…and your will and intention to change it is the fuel to change that unhealthy familial pattern, backwards into the past and forwards into the future. Energy healing such as Reiki, Intuitive counseling and communicating with your ancestors via mediumship can and will help you heal it. Contact me if you are interesting in this type of healing or desire more guidance and information on healing unhealthy familial patterns.
When I first started practicing Reiki in 2014, I came upon the practice of removing energetic cords. These cords can come from either a living person or a spirit and attach to people in order to siphon their energy from others. After practicing Reiki for a while, I started to actually see these cords attached to a person’s energetic field or aura. I would ask my spirit guides and angels to show me the cords that were not attached for that person’s highest good and then cut and remove them.
Energetic cords can drain someone of their energy or even cause physical ailments or pain. They can be attached to you by former significant others, family members or even a stranger you encountered.
A spirit attachment is similar to an energetic cord but more encompassing. I don’t see cords attached, I simply sense another presence around that person that doesn’t appear or feel benevolent. They can be near that person or actually leave when an energy healer comes near the client so they are not discovered. This happens to me a lot so I have to be really diligent in discovering the spirit attachment.
After using these techniques for years as well as during property clearings, I have come to the conclusion that spirit attachments are a lot more common than I realized or wanted to admit. I have done property clearings where the paranormal activity returned once I cleared it. So it made wonder, what am I missing?
I realized that the person could be haunted and not the property. That means no matter where a person lives, they are going to feel like someone is watching them and they are going to have uncomfortable feelings. They are going to experience paranormal activity because it’s literally following them everywhere they go. This person more than likely has one or more spirit attachments and they need to be removed.
Sometimes it takes me a while to discover this but eventually I can not be fooled. There are two cases I would like to go into detail with this, one is professional and the other is personal. I have a recent Reiki client who came to me to experience more relaxation and de-stressing in her life. She was and is opening up to the world of energy now. She suffered from acid reflux and she would often feel discomfort when I focused Reiki on her throat. I thought that the Reiki was clearing her throat chakra. At her 4th appointment with me, she said the following words which alarmed me, “I feel like someone is choking me.” I knew that at this point I had to figure out the cause of this.
As I kept my hands hovered over her throat and asked my angels and guides,”Why does she feel like someone is choking her?” Over the years I have learned the more specific my question, the more likely I will receive a specific answer. Suddenly I sensed another presence in the room, toward my client’s feet and to the right. I could see it was a male with blonde hair and there was a lot of negativity coming from him. With my intuitive senses I got the following: he was her husband in another life, he used to abuse her including choking her and he told me he wasn’t happy that she recently got married. I told him that he had to release her and go into the light. No matter how angry a spirit is I have several ways to convince a wayward spirit to journey home. Eventually he did leave willingly although not happily.
After the session I told her what I discovered. She was so relieved. She already looked like a different and more peaceful person.
My personal example has to do with one of my daughters who is a teenager. Since the quarantine I noticed that my teen daughter seemed very negative. Normally she’s sweet and goofy but I hadn’t seen that girl in awhile. I thought she was adjusting to being at home and was unhappy that she couldn’t see her friends. I would walk by her while she was playing video games and she wouldn’t even say hello. This was very unlike her.
When I was away at the beach I came to the realization that she may have several spiritual attachments. Teens can be interesting cases because they have powerful emotions and those negative emotions can attract low vibration spirits to them. These spirits actually feed on their emotions like food. It then becomes a self-fulfilling cycle, the teen feels negatively, the spirit feeds off of it and encourages the teen to feel more negative emotions. Thankfully there is a remedy to this: recognize the spirit is there and send it or convince it to go into the light.
Sometimes these spirits are quite egotistical. You can imagine that they can easily manipulate humans into doing and feeling what they want. Teens and children are especially vulnerable. When I focused on my daughter and spoke with her on the soul level she was quite upset about these spirt attachments. I knew that they were negatively influencing her. They also were quite cocky about it and one bragged to me, “It took you long enough to figure out we were here.” I easily sent them on their way to the light. When I returned home with my youngest daughter, we both asked my teen if she was feeling better. We didn’t tell her why we were asking this till later, we wanted her to tell us herself. She kind of waffled and said, “I guess so.” But I could already tell she seemed lighter and happier.
I am happy to say that my old teen is back and she’s being affectionate and sweet again. My youngest daughter noticed right away exclaiming, “She already looks different.”
After an individual energy cleaning, what if the paranormal activity doesn’t go away? The problem might be your home or property. In that case, I would recommend a property clearing and blessing.
If you suspect that you or your family member might have a spirit attachment, contact me and we will discuss your situation. This can be done in person or remotely. You can book a clearing session with me here.
Wow just wow right?
It's hard to put into words right now what's happening in the world today. However, I encourage all of you the rise above the details of what's going on and look at the big picture. If you are interested in animal medicine, invoking the hawk or any predatory bird would be wonderful right now.
I am familiar with hawk because he's been my power animal for years now.
First of all please be safe and practice social distancing and limit your trips to the store. Practice handwashing and good hygienic habits to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
That being said, I have been getting messages for years that something big was going to happen in the world and I believe this is it. All I knew was something was going to really rock us all, and that lightworkers like myself would have to be a source of calm for others. Lightworkers and energy healers are qualified to do this because 1) we have been working on ourselves for years and can relate to the stress that people are feeling 2) we are empaths and we feel others' feelings so we know and sympathize with people who are struggling 3) we have adapted and practiced how to manage how our empathic abilities and continue to address and heal our triggers and emotions when they blindside us and 4) we are knowledgeable and understand that the universe works in mysterious ways and that it helps us to rise above like the hawk and see the big picture.
What is the big picture?
We have an unsustainable lifestyle that hurts the Earth and all the living beings on it.
We have a culture that is driven by money and economics that does not equitably share resources where the few have many and the rest can barely scrape by.
Our culture of busyness reached a crescendo point where most people couldn't keep up, were really stressed out and didn't have time to even take a breath and enjoy the pleasures in life.
Our economic structure was still old school, requiring people to commute to work even though we have the technology for many to work from home.
Our government did not prepare long term for a pandemic like this, even though they were warned about it.
Our health system can not handle a pandemic like this because we lack universal healthcare in the country although most countries in the world already have such a system and it works.
And I could go on.
How to Make the Most of Your Free Time Now
I have been trying to stay productive and tackle some projects that I didn't have time for before. So far I have:
And that was just in the first week!
I have plans for more projects like,
And I am sure I will come up with more.
But make sure you do fun stuff too. So far I have played several scrabble games with my daughters, took many bike rides and walks, sat outside in the nice weather to read a book and watched favorite movies with my family, like the Hobbit and Pete's Dragon.
What is life going to look like after all the dust settles? These are some of my predictions:
Let EFT Help You Through This Tumultuous Time
If you are struggling at this time, please reach out for help. I have seen great success with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) tapping. Recently I offered 10 free 30 minute sessions with each client and we tackled such issues like inability to connect with spirit, grieving over a parent who passed away, anxiety about changing jobs, fear of change, depression, abandonment and severe back pain. I was able to help with all of these challenging issues and get my clients at least to feel calm or close to calm after tapping through it.
I am offering a introductory price of $33 for a 30 minute EFT session or $65 for a one hour EFT session. All sessions can be done over the phone or Zoom video conferencing.
Here is what some of my EFT clients have to say about the results they experienced:
I felt the positive effects immediately and feel like I left the tapping session with enough knowledge that I can easily use it again if needed--Brooke
In a very short session, Tina taught me how to use EFT to break through a lifelong resistance and negative belief about myself. I didn’t even know the root of it until she helped me to see it. I also love how Tina acknowledges and celebrates my breakthroughs in healing. I highly recommend working with her--Kim
In the world today, it is easy to feel fearful,stressed and anxious. Tina was able to guide me in an EFT session to help with my anxiety. In just one session, my stress/anxiety level went from a 7 to a 2. Tina is very easy to talk to and offers many different services. She also has the awesome option of doing sessions remotely via Zoom. This is great option when you can't get out and about but need help. I would definitely recommend Tina!--Julie
I've been fortunate to attend her Reiki 1 class and her EFT tapping. It's been almost 24 hours and my anxiety levels are very low. I've been feeling very calm and relaxed--Brittney
I thought I had some blockages pertaining to my spiritual abilities. And from a scale of 1-10 on how much this upset me I was at a 10. I'm a perfectionist so I have an idea of how things should be working in my head and I get upset when I don't perform the way I think I should...After about 3 rounds [of EFT] my feeling of a 10 came down to about a 2 which is incredible... we talked about it a little bit more and she helped me see my situation in a different way. I've had a lot of very powerful experiences and instances that have happened when I wasn't trying or thinking. And she explained to me that when she learned to allow things to flow instead of expecting [things to happen] she found that that way of thinking was much more clear and open...that totally resonated with me and I'm really happy I was able to speak with her. She helped me see it from a different perspective and helped me see that I'm not actually blocked at all--Sofia
My classes will probably be rescheduled to fall dates or later. All my one on one in-person sessions are on hold but I have a lot of remote healing sessions available:

In love and gratitude,
In anticipation of the new season of Clone Wars, I decided to watch an abridged version of the previous seasons with my family. I already knew what was coming because I heard of Ahsoka, Anakin’s apprentice, leaving the Jedi order. My husband and daughters were upset when they first watched it happen and had explained it to me. Ahsoka is also my youngest daughter’s favorite character and she was upset she might not ever see her again.
Last night we finally watched those shows, and I have to say, I don’t blame Ahsoka for leaving the Jedi order. For those who don’t watch the show, Ahsoka has been loyal to her Jedi Master Anakin (the future Darth Vader) and the Jedi Order. She has remained true to their principles and has saved countless lives in the Clone Wars. The Jedi Temple was bombed and Ahsoka and Anakin are assigned as investigators. There are rumors that a Jedi is behind all of this. They find that a mechanic caused the bomb and died in the blast. The wife of the bomber is arrested and held and is about to confess to Ahsoka who is really behind the bombing when she chokes to death a la Force style by an unknown assailant. Since Ahsoka was in the room with her, the assumption was made it was Ahsoka who killed the bomber’s wife.
Clearly this is a set up, but the Jedi seem oblivious to this—like they are oblivious to the fact that Chancellor Palpatine (the future Emperor) is part of the dark side right in their midst! So they continue to accuse Ahsoka of this when 1) she has always been loyal and 2) they never bother to ask her what happened. Then they kick her out of the Jedi order. Finally another Jedi apprentice confesses and the Jedi council apologizes to Ahsoka for doubting her and asks her to come back to the Jedi order. Then she decides no, she wasn’t returning and leaves.
Also let me say how disappointing Yoda is in these episodes. Like, hello, doesn’t Yoda sense that there’s something wrong with Chancellor Palpatine? What’s with his Jedi Spidey senses being off? I mean, isn’t that basic psychic senses and intuition, the ability to sense and know when someone is lying and deceiving you? I keep waiting for Yoda to say, I sense a MAJOR disturbance in the force and he never does!
Ahsoka’s decision to leave the Jedi was sad for many but I understood why she did it, because I could relate to her feelings at that moment. When I was a freshman in my boarding high school I applied to be a prefect (student floor supervisor) for my sophomore year. I really wanted the position but I was denied and told I was too “reserved.” I had to laugh, even then, at that feedback. Reserved would not be a word I would describe myself as being. I wonder which teacher determined that about me?
Anyway, fast forward to junior year and I was walking across the quadrangle heading back to my dorm. Approaching me and heading in my direction was my dorm head, Mrs. Hess. She asked me, “Tina, are you applying to be prefect? I think you be wonderful at it.” At this point I had let go of being prefect and no longer wanted such a position. I smiled at her and said, “I am not interested.” And then I walked away, I felt amazing because just two years prior I was turned down and devastated I didn’t have the opportunity to become prefect.
In reality, I was no longer interested at that point. I was the Founder and President of my high school’s first Environmental Club and future Copy Editor of the yearbook and had my hands full already. That’s why I can relate to Ahsoka, when people don’t believe in you, they lose your loyalty and commitment. And you learn that your own happiness is important and what you think about yourself matters, not what others think of you.
What helped me recover from my rejection was finding activities and issues that mattered to me, like environmental policy. After I pursued my interests, I notice that my fellow students and teachers respected me more.
Not every opportunity is right for you. I used to say yes to everything and regret it. Now I really think about getting involved and whether I even have time for a particular activity. It’s all about good boundaries and self-care now.
Reflections on the Past Decade
I felt compelled to write this blog post today because I was 1) inspired to review the last 10 years of my life thanks to fellow Shaman Khristee Rich and 2) I want to explain what is happening to us in terms of consciousness on this planet. Today, New Year’s Eve and the Eve of a new decade, 2020s, is great time to reflect back on how far you have come in 10 years.
The past 10 years have been really pivotal for me spiritually, emotionally and mentally. I started out this past decade in 2010 becoming a mother for a second time. In 2011 I had my first psychic reading and connected with my late father for the first time. That experience was mind-blowing and opened me up to whole new spiritual worlds. 2014 was a pivotal year for me because I took a Tarot class that literally changed my life. My Reiki teacher taught that class and I ended up getting Reiki trained in 2014 and 2015. I also started practicing mediumship and integrating that into my energy healing sessions. I discovered shamanic healing and learned how to shamanic journey and perform soul retrievals in 2015. And don't forget I started blogging about all of this in 2014.
I started teaching this past decade and worked on my fear of public speaking enough that I can speak to small groups of people without breaking a sweat (I still get nervous though). I started my business in 2014 and in the past year alone I doubled my income.
I have always loved traveling and in the past decade I visited Spain, Austria, Hungary, Hawaii (twice!) and numerous Caribbean Islands like Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire. I spent five days walking along the ancient megaliths of Montana, nine days visiting the sacred sites of Mary Magdalene in southern France and nine days visiting ancient technology sites in Mexico. I spent a week crystal questing in Arkansas and digging up my own quartz crystals.
I moved twice in the past decade. A big move from Virginia to South Carolina in 2016 and a local move this past summer from North Charleston to Summerville. Hopefully we won’t move for a while now. We purchased a vacation condo in Myrtle Beach which we try to enjoy as much as we can.
My friends are my chosen family and they are very important to me. I made wonderful friends this past decade but in truth, I lost a lot of friends, especially from high school. We simply changed too much or we just lost touch. Interesting enough, I am still very much connected to friends I made in my childhood city of New York, maybe we are just truly bonded because of our location. I’ve made wonderful friends here in South Carolina and met wonderful lightworkers and healers as well.
My children have grown leaps and bounds. My daughter Lily started the decade as 4 year old with a brand new baby sister. Now Lily is 13 and almost as tall as I am and Charlotte is quickly catching up. They keep us busy with all their activities: chorus, basketball, soccer and swimming. But to be honest, we can be big homebodies too and stay home for days or entire weekends when we have time off.
What kind of changes have you gone through in the past decade? Pause and reflect for a moment on how far you have come.
The 4th Dimension is Here Knocking on Our Door
Now on to part two of this post: our rise in consciousness. I have been really reflecting a lot lately on what is going on locally and globally in the world. For those that personally know me, they know this is just how I operate and think. When I first moved to my current neighborhood, I started delving into understanding why there was so much paranormal activity here despite the housing being less than 10 years old. I came up with many different factors: being located in the 33rd parallel, the history of the land and location, the people themselves being mostly asleep or in the spiritual closet…but I have come to believe it’s really more than a local issue, I think this is a global issue.
I have recently come to realize that the proof of our ascension is here. We have our feet in two worlds now, one is in the third dimension and the other is the fourth dimension. The third dimension is our physical world, the world that we are very familiar with and is extremely limiting. The fourth dimension is harder to describe:
“So where is this 4th dimension? It is right here, all around us. We do not have to travel to it, it is not separated from the earth plane by distance or time. It is through the ‘portal’ or doorway of consciousness that a spirit must pass to enter the 4th dimension and we as humans can step through this doorway by one of two methods. The first and most obvious is by death of the physical body and the release of the soul. The second is by meditation, astral travel, near death experiences or out of body experiences. Basically this is when our minds enter an altered state of consciousness and split from our physical bodies.” (Supernatural Magazine)
For those of you who meditate, astral travel or shamanic journey, you see, feel and hear the fourth dimensional worlds and it FEELS as real as the third dimension. I have been actively meditating and working in the fourth dimension since around 2011 and to be honest, I have felt fourth dimensional beings around me my whole life. I am familiar with it and the variety of beings that you encounter. And here’s the thing, we’ve come to the point where ordinary humans (the ones that scoff at all things magical) are seeing those beings and experiencing the fourth dimensional timeline too. It’s the universe is saying, “Hey you thought angels weren’t real or spirit guides or even ghosts? Wrong! Here’s a bunch of paranormal stuff that’s going to happen to you and will not have an explanation for it.”
You see paranormal is just a word for the unexplained. The unexplained is unexplainable in the physical third dimension world by science, but all is possible in the fourth dimension and beyond.
“Spirits in the 4th dimension are not only able to see our 3D world but they can choose to intersect with it within the time continuum. Numerous appearances and disappearances of these 4th dimensional spirits are seen and recorded on a regular basis within our plane of reality. Spirits are pure energy and our bodies are merely physical manifestations of that energy, upon death we return to being pure energy. When a 4th dimension being enters our 3D world we view them as a combination of light energy and transparent 3D physicality. This energy or fine matter form is how spirits can move through walls at will. They effectively can ‘squeeze’ through the empty space in the molecules of the wall they are phasing through.” (Supernatural Magazine)
So what’s in store for us in 2020 and beyond? More of the unexplained, more of the paranormal, more synchronicities and more magic. AND I CAN”T WAIT. This is the stuff I love. I know I am here to help transition to the fourth dimension and beyond. This is part of my main mission here on Earth.
There are all sorts of tools for you to start understanding and working with our new fourth dimensional reality that I will be teaching in many classes in the coming year.
So get real ladies and gents and hold on to your hats. The fourth dimension is here (it always was) and the 5th dimension is around the corner!
Lately I have been reminded by the universe how important the eyes are in revealing the truth of who someone is and how they are feeling. There is a saying that the “eyes are the window to the soul.” This is so true! Someone can be smiling and yet their eyes reveal sadness or pain.
Another local Reiki master pointed this out to me when we started discussing local political candidates. There was one in particular that he was suspicious of. He sent me the picture and he told me “look at the eyes.” I wasn’t really seeing anything right away, partly because, although we hadn’t met, we were social media friends and this person seemed to agree with a lot of my political and social beliefs. My friend kept insisting on looking at the eyes and even cropped them out of a picture for me to study. I really wasn’t seeing it.
Finally I could see what he was talking about. One eye seemed cold and distant. This is what he was concerned about. Now interested in this candidate I checked out this person’s Facebook page. This person was a vegan but one of those people who believes everyone should be a vegan. I believe we should have freedom to choose what we eat and that everybody has unique dietary requirements. She basically posted something about this that was very judgmental and critical of people who were not vegan. So I it didn’t take long for me to see something was off about her.
In doing my work, I often want a picture of my client if we don’t work one on one together. A picture of a person can reveal so much about them, especially the eyes. I can also only see around their energy field, any energetic cords that may be attached to them, even ancestors that are looking after them. I read into their emotional and mental fields, revealing how they have been feeling lately and whether they are mentally preoccupied. This is especially important if a client comes to me feeling like they have an attachment or that something is taking their energy.
Try looking at people’s pictures and read what their eyes are saying about them. Look at friends and family member’s pictures or try looking at the pictures of some famous people too. Looking at a picture of someone you don’t know might be easier to read. The more you practice the better you get at it. Ask yourself the following questions as you gaze at the picture:
Some of you know that I recently moved last month from North Charleston to Summerville, SC. It’s something that I would never have predicted because I just moved to the Charleston area three years ago from Virginia. But Spirit has a big way of pushing me when I need it.
Early this year, my earth sign husband brought up moving. There were many practical reasons to move but the sheer amount of work it involves resulted in my answer of a hard “no.” I consulted neighbors and friends about the schools in particular and they calmed my fears and decided moving wasn’t necessary.
Around the 1st of May my neck started hurting. This is not unusual since I have been having stiff neck problems since high school. I tried all my natural remedies with no results. I was really befuddled on why my neck was feeling this way. One of my energy healing teachers offered a mini-reading and I jumped on the opportunity to find out why my neck was hurting (hint for all of you, if it’s not a medical cause, then there’s a spiritual, mental or emotional cause). The first card she pulled was the Ace of Fire (also Wands) which means the beginning of action and taking initiative. Then her next question was, “Are you thinking of moving?”
Talk about nailing it!
I said yes we talked about it and decided not to. She said neck pain describes someone who is not looking at all the options. In my case, I refused to look at one option: moving. She pulled five more cards on the question and she said they all pointed to moving, like a big yes. She said it would be good for me financially and personally. She said it would be hard work for eight months and then I would be able to enjoy the result of my efforts. Well in that case, I decided to make plans for a move.
The next day the neck pain eased.
The following day it came back and I had a nice rash that accompanied it. A rash showed up on the back of my neck and weaved a trail down my left arm. What was disturbing about this was the rash followed the neck pain and radiating down my arm too. I immediately saw a doctor and she diagnosed me with shingles. It took another week of anti-viral medication before the pain went away.
I always like to examine the deeper meaning of why things need to happen, like this move. I know that I had to do it and it would be good for me. But since moving I have discovered the following reasons:
