Self-Healing and Measurable Results – a Winning Combination.
Living Our Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
I had a fascinating experience a few weeks ago, a Narrative Coaching session with Mathilde Taburet in France. She coaches in both French and English. I choose to speak with my body, particularly my hips which are realigning and straightening but are hurting in the process. It was a fascinating session and I basically shut my eyes and talked out loud to my body as Mathilde asked me questions. The next day I woke up and knew there had been an important shift! Yeah for self-healing.
Then I wanted to figure out how to work with what I have uncovered in this exploratory inner work adventure. What was the core message and what are my action steps?
Establish a relationship with the problem
For me, establishing and deepening the partnership with my body is the cornerstone – listening and giving her what she wants. How do you create a relationship with a problem? What kind of questions do you ask? What kind of beliefs do you examine and change? I became aware that addressing belief systems about the inevitable deterioration of the body as we age was a big one to work on.
I became more aware that I wanted to use intentional vibrational and sound healing more actively in my own self-healing.
Beliefs to Change
Belief, for me, is the cornerstone of all change. Some belief has brought you to this place, this juncture. What is it? For me, it was a belief about the aging process – the belief in gradual and persistent deterioration. There is no fear of death for me, just apprehension of the discomfort of the deterioration process. That is not a belief that serves me.
Believe in your ability to change
I also need to have a firm belief that I can self-heal! That may take working with a variety of self-healing techniques or it may be as simple as affirmations that I repeat over and over to change my thinking and thus my life.
New Choices to make
I had some optional choices come up, more Qigong, more hall-walking, more interaction with nature, more flute-playing and vibrational sound healing, new bitfield work, more intentional healing. I’m having a good time with the new resistance stretches my physical therapist gave me. It feels like a major positive change to add more conscious movement to my self-healing process .
What steps/changes/disciplines do I need to apply in order to make consistent choices that give me the results I seek?
Frequency and consistency – My cornerstones
Here’s where you make a plan – specific steps that you take. You observe the changes and then tweak your choices until you get the results you seek. I just found the perfect place for the resistance training. I interwove it with a little Transcendental Meditation and have a lovely session. I have a selection of affirmations to sprinkle throughout my day. I have a group of posture-correcting movements to do regularly as I move into different rooms. What can I change that will bring a different result? Going outside even a little would be good. How do I change my beliefs about what is possible? My expectations? What new choices do I make?
I’m going to do more releasing through journey work. Also more vibrational healing and meditation. Create a plan, follow it, notice the results and make changes. Keep flexible and encourage change. Create, adjust and create some more.
Beliefs to deepen
This body rearranging is reversible. It will take consistent, aware focus and actions to manifest this change. I can do this.
Monitor the results of your choices and changes
What is working? What is not? The new place I have added the stretch band exercises is perfect – a bit of nature, plus a time for mediation and it is a welcome change in my routine I have added several times in my day. Experiment, try different combinations and monitor your results. Then make more changes.
Bottom Line: I have work to do to support the strengthening of my body.
I have work to do to keep my spirits up around my LightPath and the fascinating journey it is inviting me on.

Thank You for Your Birthday Wishes
I sit here in my apartment in the suburbs of Kansas City and don’t see very many people. And then I have the audacity to announce my birthday in my newsletter and send it not only to my subscribers, but post it on on Facebook and Twitter and suddenly I am beautifully aware of a planet full of friends. Your response is an extremely awesome and humbling experience. Thank you for taking time to acknowledge me. Thank you for taking time to read what I write and what I record. Thank you for walking this path with me. We are indeed a Circle of Light Beings and our collective light grows stronger. Feel our connection. Feel our collective support of each other in this journey we are taking together. Blessings and gratitude. Namaste – the light within me honors the light within you.
Get Your Answers By Doing Your Inner Work
It’s not enough to be told how to do it, the only way you own something is by doing it – experiencing it for yourself. As I search to increase my use of vibrational healing I have to work on myself. I have to experiment, practice, experience, explore, discover, and find my own path to the core message. I have to practice it and experience it and get my own results in order to truly own the wisdom and experience. Then I have something to share and teach. Find you answers though your own exploration and experimentation.
Perspective and Self – Empowerment
The SpiritSong oracle card I drew was “Perspective and Self-Empowerment” and I saw that as a very powerful combination to consider. Empowering yourself to take action or find a solution is as simple as changing your perspective. My challenge is my body, so from the perspective of my body it needs strengthening. That need triggers new choices. Having that need, that focus, empowers my choices. Rather easy, actually, shift your perspective and find new solutions.
Habit versus Conscious Choice
I gradually fell into the habit of walking with my head forward. An instructor in an exercise class noticed it 4-5 years ago. I let that unconscious habit dictate my posture until I was walking bent over. Now I have begun to consciously change that. When I walk through a doorway in my home I pause to stand up straight and tall and hold that position for the count of 20. It turns out that a lot of standing up straight is simply choosing to do so – being aware that one is not standing up straight and then mindfully making the change.
Changing a habit is a matter of consciousness. Awareness that you are doing something from habit. And making a choice that you no longer want to mindlessly do that habit. Awareness + Choice = Change. What do you need/want to change?
Weigh the Choices
I’m sort of a just-do-it girl, I get an idea and I do it without a whole lot of thought. That works if you know yourself pretty well and it could get you in a tad of trouble if you were not aligned with your purpose and calling. We need to be aware of the general direction we are going at all times so that when a new choice or opportunity comes up it is easy to identify where it fits into the overall flow and helps us make an aligned decision.
I’m very much an intuition person but I am also very self-aware and know what and where a choice will lead me. Be aware of the consequences of your choices and actions and choose wisely.

Look for the Big Signs
I was seeking a personal answer to a personal problem and I found an answer that was all-encompassing and changed the course of my life. Are you asking questions that are big enough and broad enough to take you on a new journey? To lead you where you are to go next? To open up new doors and show you a new pathway? Don’t look for small answers. Look for the big signs that say “come this way”. And follow that.
May we walk the Path of Light with a sure foot.
May we keep our gaze on the Summit of Light.
May we take this journey with an open heart.
I entwine my light with yours and we move forward to guide the way.
Energy Healers, Read This Book!
I learned Reiki in the 80’s – First Degree on September 19, 1983 in New York City from Dr. Barbara Ray who had learned it from Hawayo Takata who of course learned it from Mikao Usui. I took Second Degree a week later September 25, 1983. I took Third Degree April 29, 1984 and became a Reiki Teacher on February 10, 1985. I was given 4th Degree March 20, 1986. Reiki has been a part of my life for nearly 40 years, nearly half my life. So I was fascinated to hear the interview on Sounds True with Dr. Shamini Jain and her experiences with biofields and energy healing, including reiki.
This is new research of the use of bitfields in healing which has been used in ancient practices like yoga and Qigong that understand and utilize the energy meridians in our body. This book will deepen your awareness and use of bitfield energy.

===OUR EVOLVING FUTURE===
Is it Fear of Change or Fear of Being Irrelevant?
I’ve been thinking about the way people are so adamant about their positions. Two thoughts came up – fear of change and fear of being irrelevant. Both would give one pause to consider their options.
Technology is moving so rapidly that even when we try to keep up we get behind. It is creating new jobs and eliminating familiar ones. How do we even learn the new jobs? Are there enough people who know the new technology to teach us? And what if we’re not technically inclined? There are a great many reasons to feel unsure. Yes, every single one of us is going to become outdated and in some way irrelevant if we keep doing things the familiar, comfortable way. That means I have to question all my choices and a fair number of my beliefs particularly around what is possible! It takes some bravery to question, to erase conclusions you have drawn, and begin a new path. Fear of needing to change and not being able to change is in the minds of a lot of people whenever they are conscious of it or not. And what if in all this change you become irrelevant – what if your skills are no longer useful? They are printing houses for heaven’s sake, what does a carpenter do? Gas stations are becoming irrelevant as solar technology emerges.
What is underling the unease you feel about your future and the worlds’ future? The point is – what are you going to do about it? How are you going to change? How are you going to adapt? Or are you? What is being invented/created now that suits you and your interests and your skills? How do you learn to do that? Where are the new jobs to do that?
This is a time for examining and exploring and trying on new options and opportunities. Look around at the new doors that are opening and step through one!

===OUR UNFOLDING ROLE===
Our circle of influence is much larger than we imagine. Our thoughts, our actions, our beliefs are like a radio tower sending off signals into the world. What messages are you sending? Are you holding out frequencies of hope, of exploration, of high expectations? Check your broadcast frequency and see if you need to raise it.
A Winning Combination
I drew two cards from my new SpiritSong tarot deck: Empowerment and Ambition was one, Mentality and Focus the other. I can’t think of a better combination for moving forward. It puts the results squarely in my lap. My ambition, my desire is empowering and chooses the direction – the desire drives my choices and my willingness to do the work. It gets results. When I add ambition I take off and when I add mentality I find the path. It creates big results. To ambition add focus, keep making choices in alignment with your goal and off you go – flying high! Your choices. Your results.
Heres’s my takeaway. Everything is up to me. What shows up in my life. How I feel about it. What I do about it. I am sitting here creating my life from what I believe I deserve and what I believe is possible. How am I living my unfolding?
I look at my body as healing and adjusting toward greater alignment even though it is grouchy while doing it. I trust I will be shown where to go and what to explore on my changing path. I am getting more insights on what is changing in the world and what some of our choices might be. My journeys are showing me a higher path and I am taking it. The moment of change is now, in this second, with the beliefs we embrace, the choices we make, and the expectations we hold. What are you dreaming up for yourself?
