Soulmates on our path

Interesting, how Valentine's Day stirs up thoughts about soulmates, twin flames, life partners and romantic relationships.

The two biggest decisions we get to make in our life is what we are going to do for a living and who we are going to love.

What do we really want from a relationship? It is important that as we focus, we keep a clear vision in mind about the important attributes we want in that person. It is important that we keep thanking our spirit guides for connecting us with the person who fits our vision.

If there has been a long passage of time, with long being a relative term, it is important not to slip into a negative frame of mind and think that "all the good ones are taken" or that "I had a great relationship once then I lost it" or that "there might not be a person for me out there."

Holding such thoughts do not help us achieve our goal in the same way that it would not work for us to think that starting our own business is not a good idea because it is difficult and other people have done something like we have in mind already. The fact that others have successful relationships and successful businesses can be excellent sources of encouragement. Inspiration is frequently drawn from those who have gone before us and created beautiful and joyous paths that we can glean valuable insights from.

A common occurrence is when we meet someone and they have a lot of the qualities we want, we just need to get back in touch with our spirit guides for another chat. And we thank them for sending us someone and ask that the next person have this factor that was missing. Don't be confused. Meeting someone means that our spirit guides are answering our request. So instead of seeing a near miss as a wrong choice, look at it as being on the path to getting a response, we just need to fine tune the response.

Keep in mind that soulmates can be people that we are in relationships for a while who teach us valuable life lessons. Soulmate does not always mean happily ever after because maybe we were only meant to be together for a lesson that could be difficult.

Another important perspective is that soulmates also turn up in our life as good friends, the kind of people we feel free sharing with because we feel open about speaking in heartfelt ways and they are always there for us. So good friends can be soulmates too. Instead of one major encounter in relationships in our life, we have several. So take a look at the variety of possibilities befoere us and enjoy this journey.

Time for the next chapter for me. I am looking for new living and working arrangements and will consider all options that are presented to me. I have no deadline and it is not an emergency, just something I would like to do this year. I am grateful for whoever will be contacting me. As always, I know that who ever contacts me is guided by spirit.

Thank you!

Any time any one of you contacts me, it really helps make my day whether you want to make an appointment or just to keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. I like hearing your stories of what has been happening since the last time we met. And of course, I am always ready to help with what is next. Let this note help make your day. I love you.

Getting our house in order

I am sending out the February newsletter a few days early to give you a head start on the smallest month.

Sometimes I use the metaphor of our house for our life since we live in our physical body as well as a building and we act to keep both in good order.

And in recent years, we have experienced realignments in our houses in ways that are new. For example, it is becoming more common for people to move back in with elderly parents or parents move in with them in order to care for them. Another change that has become more common is when family members move in together because their housing costs have gone up faster than their earnings.

When these events occur, additional care and consideration are required because we all like to have our own space, so there is some juggling necessary to make it all work. Plus the fact that these are temporary solutions requires a balancing act on the part of all who are involved. It throws our sense of organization out of whack when things like this happen in our life. There are always lessons to learn from all this. One is the connections we have with others. Another is working our way out when the time is right. And then there is continuing to take care of ordinary business even in the face of these other responsibilities.

Younger people finding ways to make their cash flow work is one aspect, and that affects all of us one time or another. Recent developments have made that tougher for them. However, on the other end of the spectrum, now that people are living longer, the need for caregivers will continue to grow. And that means that we will have more experiences of this type as we go.

Each time we make a change of this type, we reinvent ourselves to a degree. As we move, we let go of things and are prompted to sharpen our focus to what is really important. Sometimes caregivers unearth old things which lead to revelations and amazing family stories and fascinating life recalls. And all these things add light on our path too.

By the way, reiki healing is a great way to get some relief from all these types of stresses arising out of these moves. I love doing reiki healing with people. So if you feel like this would be good for you, give me a call or send me a message.

Here is another flash of insight. When we are cleaning to pack and move, we often get these memories and thoughts popping in about things we have done and people we have known. And this simple catalyst prompts us to reflect on our path and our progress in life. So in this way, even a temporary relocation to help out a family member or friend can prompt life changing thoughts and actions.

Change agents are always around us. We often do not recognize them until we are ready. Once we do, then we are reinvigorated and inspired. Each move is a new chapter and a new opportunity. And for all these reasons, our lives are moving forward in a sequence of chapters, each one more prescient than the last, with intermittent surprises flowing from unexpected developments. Let it flow! Let it flow! When we do, we know.

As you all know, I live with my sisters, one of whom is currently living in Chicago, acting as a caregiver for our mother, and this situation may go on for a long time. My move to my sisters' house was made necessary for me because of the craziness of the real estate market here. This was always a transitional arrangement.

So I am putting it out to the universe, and all of you, that I desire to find a different arrangement sometime this year. This is not an emergency and there is no deadline. Since this is my full time business, I need to find a place where I can live and work. I have no pets. I am wondering if anyone reading this may have a place or part of a place that they would like to rent at a reasonable price.

Twice in the three years before I moved into my sisters house, developers bought the properties I was living in, refused to renew leases so that everyone would move out, then doubled the rents. All the years up until that time, I never had any problem paying all my rent, utilities and other necessary costs of living, but my budget could not take overnight doubling, and some of the new apartments are priced at 3 and 4 times my previous rents. My intention is to find a sensible new arrangement and continue to offer my services to you at reasonable prices.

Do you have a property or part of a property you would like to rent? What kind of options are out there?

My preference would be to stay in the Longmont area because I have spent 15 years here building my business and moving can interrupt that flow. Lots of my clients live in the cities north of Denver. Plus I have my gym membership here and it is well located for serving clients up and down the front range.

It is the mixed blessing of being rated America's fastest growing city, because the growth brings new business, and the flip side is that real estate prices have gone bonkers.

In a nutshell, the problem is this. Rents have grown by a factor of 2, 3 & 4 times, and while my business is growing, it is not growing by factors of double, triple and quadruple. I would prefer to make more appointments with more people, rather than raise prices. And, of course, keeping my cost of living reasonable, enables me to treat all of you in a reasonable manner.

So I realize that moving farther away may be necessary, but I thought I would ask you first because you might have some opportunity here that is not public knowledge.

Time for the next chapter. I will consider all options that are presented to me. I am grateful for whoever will be contacting me. As always, I know that who ever contacts me is guided by spirit.

Thank you!

Is it our nature to be positive?

Have you ever wondered? Is it natural to be positive? We are constantly presented with choices that underscore this fact for us. What is required of us is simply to stay focused and do that which aligns with our spirit.

Notice how our spirit lightens and joy returns when we choose from a positive perspective. Notice how when something does not go the way we like it, and we take a deep breath and release the thought, suddenly we find ourselves with another choice, and the very fact that we have another choice is a source of joy.

When I am doing energy healing with people, they always feel lighter when we have cut cords or let go of burdens. We literally, physically feel lighter when we choose to not give the negative people or events more energy. Negative thoughts and energies are weights we carry. Choosing to lighten the load lets us see things differently. By doing this, we give ourselves the opportunity to see our path forward without those obstacles and burdens. What does our vision of the future look like now, when we are opening our minds to the possibility that we can create the life we want, we can find solutions to problems, we can find people who will be partners, friends, companions, and fellow journeyers. Often, a key is giving ourselves permission to do something differently.

Did you ever notice how many times when something did not turn out the way we wanted, something else came up that was even better? Or when we did not have all the items on our wish list, that we then found another way to create the result we wanted, using a different set of components.

Cultivating a positive mindset every day keeps opening these doors for us. That serves us well when the adjustments we are making are modest, and it becomes more critical when we are making major changes and exploring new frontiers. Venturing outward means that we know we are stretching our abilities and that frequently means that we must admit that there are things we do not know, so we will try other options. That is the joy of discovery, and it is also the joy of blazing your own trail. We all learn by trial and error, and knowing that, we are able to let go of the errors and go for more trials.

It is our nature to be positive because we would always like for things to work out well for us. So if we need to change course or tactics or people, we will do that. Of course, there are many events in life that we do not control, but what we can control is how we respond to them. So by choosing a way that continues our flow from that difficult or unexpected event, we have to use positive thoughts and examine all options. That way, we continue to flow instead of getting stuck.

We do live in an abundant universe and it supports our various life adventures. Learning how to shift is the key to navigating these changes. I think that it is always spirit that gives us challenges and tests throughout our life, and brings our attention back to what is important. If we do not have enough love and joy in our life, what will we have to do to get it? That is always the power behind the challenge.

Besides, being positive minded is more fun. And who does not like more fun? When any of us can simply say that we like who we are and we like what we do, we know we are on track. Waking up with that kind of attitude every day makes every day a good day.

Any time any one of you contacts me, it really helps make my day whether you want to make an appointment or just to keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. I like hearing your stories of what has been happening since the last time we met. And of course, I am always ready to help with what is next. Let this note help make your day. I love you.

2020 is a 4 Year. What does that mean?

2020 is a 4 year in numerology. What does that mean?

The new year that begins on January 1 is a national holiday, so society wise the number 4 is a factor for all of us this year, just as 3 was the number for the year we are wrapping up.

Each person's birthday is their personal new year. So, of course, each of us has these overlapping influences. Here is how they work together.

You see, 4 is the number of foundation, the basis we have to build on. It is strength, solidity and dependability.

This is a year when we are setting and strengthening our foundations for the next phase of our life. So just like a building has 4 corners and 4 sides, people have 4 aspects, or 4 bodies that we build on, and those are mental, physical, spiritual and emotional. When we are building a home, we must make certain that the foundation is made properly so that the house will be able to be used to support us, nuture us and protect us.

Set aside time for reflection before getting busy every day. We can use this time to recall dreams, Note how we feel and what is important to do next. Begin by expressing gratitude for this day and then simply open to spiritual guidance. Just relax and ask your spirit guides if they have any advice or information that we need to know. By asking for help and guidance in this way, we keep the dialogue open between us, and we invite positive input.

In our personal reflections, what do we feel needs to be changed? Are we satisfied with the state of our 4 bodies? Which ones need to be cleared, cleaned, strengthened and rebuilt? Once we have addressed that, we can proceed more strongly with our plans. When our 4 bodies are all working well, they lift us up to the next level.

For those of you who have started new businesses in the last few years, this is the year when cash flow is stronger and getting to a new level of achievement sets the tone for the year to come. Most businesses have adjusting to do in the first couple years to get their systems in order and discover what methods work best, so in that 4 year, early errors have been corrected and cash flow is more even and increasing and reaching the next plateau. While at this plateau, we can further assess what is our next best move while the present activity continues to flow smoothly.

If you are working in a large organization and are looking forward to advancement, then what is needed is an accurate assessment of what you need to do to get to the next level.

Physically, this is a time for us to take care of any health concerns, address concerns that need attention, pay closer attention to diet and exercise practices so that we are affirming that we have made good choices and now we will work at building these changes into regular behaviors and habits. We have the power to make positive changes in how we look, feel and function.

Maybe a new form of exercise. Maybe finding someone who wants to do it with us. Physically, are we doing any kind of remodeling or rearranging in our residence in order to make the energy of our space more beautiful, useful and more attuned to the things that we want to be doing in our space?

Emotionally, have we learned our lessons from previous relationships, so that the next one can be better? Have we cut the cords with toxic people? Are we strengthening our connections with those we want to keep in our life? Have we cleared away old energy that does not support who we are and what we are doing? Are we happy to be who we are, do what we do and be connected to those closest to us?

Spiritually, how are we doing? Have we changed anything about what we feel is important to us? Are we acting in accord with our own principles and values? Do we feel that we are on track and are simply reaffirming our commitment to our path? Have we continued on the same basic path but added some new practices or perspectives to it? Is there a cause or charity that we choose to support because of our spiritual beliefs? Is there a physical activity that we will choose to do more because it we like the way it feels, and helps us be healthy? What meditations, prayers, positive thinking and rituals do we do to keep us on track?

Mentally, are there subjects that appeal to us that we would like to know more about? Are there skills we would like to add to our set? Are we looking to deepen our knowledge in areas that we already work in? Consider from both the business perspective and the personal. Are there thoughts that we can change in order to change the course of our progress? Remember, where our thoughts go, our energy goes. Negative thoughts draws negative energy. Positive thoughts draw positive energy. If sometime has come to our attention three times, that means that spirit wants us to take notice of it.

So as we celebrate our entry into the new year, are we lighting up our lives by examining every aspect and putting things in order to create and maintain a solid level of progress, where we can keep things rolling at a good pace and observe what plans we can make next and build on our foundation? If we do, the energy of 4 will help us build a solid, productive year.

Any time any one of you contacts me, it really helps make my day whether you want to make an appointment or just to keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. I like hearing your stories of what has been happening since the last time we met. And of course, I am always ready to help with what is next. Let this note help make your day. I love you.

We Light Each Other's Path

You see, when we consider ourselves as bits of light that help illuminate the path for others, our perspective on our journey shifts focus.

We bring light into each others lives in the form of levity and humor as well as the feeling of love that is present among good friends and family. We bring light into a gathering when we tell stories, play games and make music.

Being a healer is a very powerful and rewarding experience. I love it every time someone gets up after a session and not only do they tell you how good they feel, you can see it all over them. And then there are some who try it once and that's it. Then there are others who you definitely see getting better and turning their life around, and making important major changes after working together regularly for a while.

Then there are others whose path takes on a different destiny. Recently, I had been working with a client who had cancer. She would see me in between her chemo and radiation treatments and she told me that the reiki helped her feel much better. She had her ups and downs and the cancer and the treatments had really run her energy down. Suddenly, within the last two weeks, the cancer got worse.

She sent me a text and told me that she knew she was going to die within a few days. And when she was admitted to the hospital, she requested that I come and use the reiki to help her have a peaceful energy to assist in her transition.

I was honored to be asked. So twice I went to see her and when I was not there in person, I sent reiki energy from a distance and the person sitting with her told me that she could feel it.

The family members knew I was there to help with the energy but we did not really talk, just acknowledged each other's presence. So at the very last, it was all family, and I can tell that they felt it helped.

So the light in this case was for the end of one journey, and the beginning of another.

The peace that is felt by the person who is leaving this plane, radiates out onto all those who remain. The comforting energy then, is not just in service to one but to all concerned, and all present.

You see the lights in the photo above and they are a lot of tiny lights, aren't they? Tiny, yet in their cumulative effect, they light a large area and give it a shape. That is how our lives get lit up too, don't they? Lots of the little experiences we had along the way lights and reflects the stories along the way. Yes, we have these big AHA! moments every so often, but it is all those little lights that bring our world to life every day.

And sometimes the light that we put out may be perceived as small by one person, yet be enormous in the eyes of another. The light we put out is to help other people see.

We all experience times when there is nothing left to say, yet we feel the communication intensely. This is where the light gets in through the cracks. This is how we know we are here for each other. We light each other up every day, not just when we are surrounded by seasonal light displays.

I wish all of you a lovely holiday season full of lights and celebrations. And take an extra moment wherever you are and whatever you are doing to appreciate all those other people who light up your life. This simple act can help illuminate our path and suggest important steps we might want to take going into the new year. Gratitude and appreciation are the part of our seasonal celebrations and our every day life. Being conscious of our roles as both givers and receivers enables us to savor each moment and each person with each breath we take. Gratitude and appreciation are visible elements of our seasonal celebrations.

Any time any one of you contacts me, it really helps make my day whether you want to make an appointment or just to keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. I like hearing your stories of what has been happening since the last time we met. And of course, I am always ready to help with what is next. Let this note help make your day. I love you.
