Hawk-sign

Earlier this week as I was finishing getting dressed to head out the door and begin my day, I happened to look out my window in time to see a beautiful red-tailed hawk enjoying a freshly caught breakfast on the railing of my back deck. It was breath-taking to see this bird in action! I scrambled for my phone to take a quick video and a few photos before the hawk got a firmer grip on breakfast and flew away.

A State of Grace (FULL-ness)

After a session with a client, I rarely remember any of the details of what I channel and the information that comes through for me to share. But I ALWAYS remember the feel of the energy. I find myself feeling continually humbled and beyond grateful for the opportunity to do this work because of the beautiful and powerful energy that I can feel when I open up to Spirit.

I recently set up an appointment with a client for a reading. As soon as I received the email confirming the date and time of the session, I got an immediate “download” from two souls who stepped forward right away. Continue reading “A State of Grace (FULL-ness)”

Turtle Prayer


Great Turtle Spirit,
I invite you into my life.
I seek your lessons of tremendous patience.
I seek your lessons of stability.
I seek your lessons of the shore.
Lead me along that place
where water touches Earth,
the space between movement and stillness.
Remind me that I carry all I need
with me at all times.
Awaken my senses
so that I am prepared for
opportunities as they arrive.
Help me trust that all happens
when and how it should.
Shield me from harm, and share your primal wisdom.
Please,
help me remember that my home is with me
wherever I go.
Mother Turtle,
I call to you.

Privacy is Important

I’ve worked with several clients in recent weeks for whom a shared theme has come through. They are each navigating different circumstances (difficult manager at work, questionably trustworthy relationships, delicate family politics). Yet in each situation, I was shown similar guiding wisdom, encouraging each person to be mindful of how much to share openly. I found it fascinating that with these different readings, each client was specifically advised to keep certain things private, avoiding full disclosure. Continue reading “Privacy is Important”

Blessing for Spring Equinox

Lord of the springtime, Father of flower, field and fruit, smile on us in these earnest days when the work is heavy and the toil wearisome; lift up our hearts, O God, to the things worthwhile — sunshine and night, the dripping rain, the song of the birds, books and music, the voices of our friends. Lift up our hearts to these this night and grant us Thy peace. Amen.

–W.E.B. Du Bois

International Women’s Day: “Still I Rise”

When I think of strong, amazing women, Maya Angelou is one who always comes to my mind. I admire her and her incredible life’s legacy for so many reasons.  Today I feel grateful to her, celebrating International Women’s Day, and hoping for the day to come when women’s rights across the globe will be treasured, honored and respected.

Still I Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise. Continue reading “International Women’s Day: “Still I Rise””

Help from the Other Side

I’ve done some work with a client I’ll call “Annie.” In our first session, Annie’s father came through very clearly. When he first stepped forward, I felt such overwhelming sadness rolling off of him in waves, that it very nearly brought me to tears. Annie shared that when he was alive, their relationship was complicated from many issues he had, and his harsh criticism and emotional manipulation was tremendously damaging to her growing up.

From Spirit, Annie’s Dad made it clear that he is very much around her Continue reading “Help from the Other Side”
