A Minor Change

You’ve probably noticed it’s been a couple of weeks since my last blog post. Creating content for a business (blog posts, newsletters, Facebook posts, etc.) is work, and sometimes I run out of things to say. Other times, I run out of time to say them. Now that I’m relaunching my romance author pen name…

Stop Saying “Get Over It”

Over the course of my life, I have experienced various forms of abuse and other trauma. For nearly two decades now, I have been on a journey to heal from those experiences. And for most of that time, I have had occasional people tell me “Just get over it, it isn’t happening anymore, you’re just…

Practitioners Do Not Have to Be “Fully Healed”

I am a trauma survivor. For me, that means throughout my life, I have experienced abuse and other things that caused long-lasting effects on my physical and mental health. I have been working for years toward healing from those experiences. But trauma is not just “dwelling on the past,” and it isn’t the same for…

Charting Your Own Course

I’ve been talking with my guides since early childhood. Back then, of course, I didn’t know they were my guides. I just knew they were my friends. They protected me, advised me, helped me cope with bullying and abuse…They were the only consistently beneficial beings in my life. There are a lot of things about…

The Best-Laid Plans

As I discussed in last week’s post, I’m exploring setting intentions rather than goals for my business and my life in general. The primary reason for this is that when I set goals and don’t meet them, it’s far too easy for me to fall into self-loathing and negative self-talk. Sometimes I can’t quite see…

Goals vs. Intentions

We’re a bit more than halfway through January now. Did you set goals or make resolutions at the beginning of the new year? If so, how are you doing on them? I used to fall in line with the “make New Year’s resolutions” thing. I was taught it was what you were supposed to do….

The New Year

In just a few days, according to the standard calendar we use here in the US, it will be a new year. At this time of year, a lot of people set goals and intentions for the upcoming year. Many coaches encourage their clients to do so. It makes sense. According to our calendar, one…

I Don’t Know Everything

As a practitioner, I am an expert in some things. I’m an expert in Chios Energy Healing, the modality I practice. I’ve continued my studies in it and hold two certifications in it. I’m an expert in channeling, at least the channeling I do. I don’t know if I’d call myself an expert in the…

Ten Out of Ten Guides Agree…

Not that I’ve polled guides. That would be a lot of work, especially since I generally only talk to my own. Lately, I’ve read a few books that either are channeled material or include some channeling along with what was written by the human author. One thing that has struck me is how many times…

Continuing Changes

As I wrote last week, I recently gave myself the gift of spending some time away. Although this was mostly to give myself space for my ongoing healing journey, I also did some work on RiverEvolutions while I was gone. I’ve blogged a couple of times in the past month or so about changes that…
