In 2004 I went to a psychic I trusted and asked: "I am considering several different professional trainings. But there are so many that are interesting and would be helpful in working with clients: is there one that I would be good at?"
She thought a few minutes and said to me: "You would be really good at doing past life regressions. And hypnosis".
As is sat thinking about this, I realized that YES! I would be good at it - although good at exactly 'what' I was not sure. So I set out to learn hypnosis - January 2005 - and experience past lives.
* A disclaimer: time is something we have made up. We call things the past, present, future but really - do we know for sure what time is? *
I took some trainings with Dr. Brian Weiss, author and facilitator of past life experiences. I read all the Michael Newton books about Life Between Lives, the 'place' where information can be retrieved. I had my experiences and I began to facilitate both group and individual PLR's - past life experiences.
So what can you learn? You can learn about
*pain in the body that is unexplained
*patterns of behavior
*values and beliefs
*community involvement or not
*traits and characteristics
*interests and expertise
*soul travelers as in people who have been in other
lives/experiences with you
What else? Gender, age, regrets at the end of a life. The question: was the life well-lived? And with each experience I ask people to go to their death in that life - sometimes as if they are 'watching a movie' and describe what they see/sense/experience. Is the person alone? How old? What kind of death: in their sleep, accident? Illness? And to ask the question: what do I regret not doing?
After death I ask that the soul move higher and higher to the Inner Life where there is information about the life just completed and the life to come.
Sound interesting? Useful to you in some ways? I am happy to offer a free consult to answer questions or concerns and if you like, we can schedule an appointment. They are usually two hours long and depending on the experience of the client, we visit either two or three past lives.

I like this quote from Tony Robbins: "If you're not growing, you're dying."
And, AND...although I like the quote and believe it to be true, there are times when I use this idea to beat myself up. To tell myself I am not doing enough, not fast enough, not BIG enough, not deep enough...on and on.
Most people can relate. This has become just another way to make ourselves wrong. Not good enough by comparing ourselves to others.
So what does it mean - to me - to be growing? I have asked myself that question a lot lately. With some health challenges, an ankle that prohibited walking more than to the car and back for several months earlier this year, and face it - just getting older, what is 'growing'?
I recently experienced, not just attended, a workshop in Canada. After two weeks of intensive learning and experiential sessions, my take away? Slow Down. Slow down. Slow down.
My entire life, and I believe even before I was born, I have been in a rush. Existentially a rush to 'get home' to my original home, to grow up, to get a degree, to raise my children...on and on. Rush. Rush. Rush. Slowing down sounded like death. As a young woman, the notion of slowing down was absolutely NOT in my 'field' of consciousness. People who slowed down were not - in my opinion - to be respected. To be emulated.
Geez. How arrogant I am and have been over so many things. And how many people...beginning with my lovely children, have I rushed past? Hurried along at a pace that was not theirs, but mine?
Do I need to keep rushing? Is there really time? Enough time? If it sit and just listen, doing nothing..am I dying? Will I begin to molt and shed within minutes? Will all that I have worked for just - poof - vanish?
This seems to be my question today. Maybe tomorrow...but for sure today. How shall I slow down and honor myself and anyone I interact with the 'gift' of time, attention...spaciousness? I am not sure. This is new to me and I am learning.
SLOW DOWN...take a few minutes to just absorb the beauty below....
I am a catalyst for others, helping people continue, over their entire life span - preconception, conception, in the womb and after - to grow, learn, heal so that each person can live their deepest longings. This is my passion.
Adventurer, lover of beauty, seeking clarity, harmony & balance. Compassionate. Just. Fair. Grateful. Hugely grateful.
