It’s official! The tiny yellow buttercups are blooming in the pasture, the boy turkeys are chasing the girl turkeys and I’m wearing my tennis shoes again. Spring is here. Yay! I woke up this morning to see the wild turkey herd roaming around in our front pasture, and the boys had all their plumage on display and they were gliding along like cruise ships, turning this way and that, letting all the girls get a good look. Then, as soon as they got close to their target, they’d scuttle along like crabs to try and catch the girl turkey of their dreams. What a hoot!
I also finally got my garden starts started yesterday and I’m excitedly waiting for some seedlings to pop up. There’s just something about working in the dirt that I love. To make the most of it, I also put on my Nature Connection bracelet and asked the gardening gods for a bit of help. I have a camouflage thumb – part brown and part green. I’m hoping to graduate to a green thumb this year. I believe all it takes on my part is patience. I certainly have the will and the optimism!
I’m also having a lot of fun making bracelets, coaching and doing card readings for people. I’ve met some of the nicest people online doing this work! It’s fun to get orders from all over the world and send them out with a blessing, like little ambassadors of good energy. I think I’m finally done fine-tuning my website, so I figured it was time to get back to the blog. How does almost three weeks pass so quickly? I heard that time is actually speeding up, according to the physicists….it’s not just that I’m getting old. What a relief!
Years ago I got really into using essential oils and I made all sorts of concoctions and gave them out to my family and friends. With life getting too busy I forgot about using them, although I always have lavender, tea tree and peppermint in my pharmacy. I have healed more wounds with tea tree and lavender than I can count. I gave a friend some tea tree for a cut on her foot that wouldn’t heal, and overnight the wound started granulating and the infection receded. I’ve used lavendar for skin healing and for getting rid of scars, even old ones. In 2003 we bought about 100 small vials of essential oil blends from Michel Zayat and are still using many of them.
I recently got interested again while putting together a chest rub that’s good for coughing, and suddenly I was in a frenzy of making a face cleaner/toner, face moisturizer, digestion formula and liver tonic. I have a great book by Julia Lawless called “The Complete Illustrated Guide to Aromatherapy,” and it gives all kinds of suggestions for all kinds of physical ailments. I also have a half dozen other books of herbal recipes for creams, lotions, perfumes, shampoo and even making soap and candles. It’s a bit of work, but it’s really the only way to get products that don’t have a lot of chemical junk in them, unless you know someone who makes things from scratch. Even the cleanest products in the best health food store have some bad ingredients. So now I’m all fired up to improve my herb garden and start making infusions and extractions and all sorts of stuff from herbs that I grow myself. I’m actually a frustrated Earth Mother, and someday I’ll be a great gardener.
This is the time of year I have to think about starting some plants so that they are big enough to put in the garden in early June. It doesn’t get warm enough here to transplant to the outdoors much before that, and fall sets in the beginning of September, so the short growing season is a challenge. We’ve investigated greenhouses and might invest in one someday. Wish me luck this season!
I just got another request to translate one of my exercises to another language. So far I’ve been translated into Spanish, French and now Portugese. I’m really glad when people ask me if it’s okay that they do this. It’s great to know that non-English speakers will have a chance to try the etheric exercises. I don’t necessarily need to be asked, but it’s nice when people do and they let me know that they’re giving the appropriate credit. I’m not worried so much about getting credit for myself, but I’ve had other people that I credit on my site, and I’d like them to have the credit too. I’ve gotten some really nice emails from people and it’s nice to know that there are so many awakened souls out there!
I finally caved in and put Paypal buttons on my website so you can now pay for coaching and bracelets with your credit card immediately. I swore I would never use Paypal, but after exploring the alternatives and getting nowhere, I signed up for Paypal and started getting orders the next day. I guess I’ll have to put a lot of good energy around my Paypal account so I don’t have any problems. I felt it was time to make it more convenient for my clients to pay for my goods and services.
I had a great coaching experience this morning with a client who is very psychic and was easy to work with. We worked on accessing the higher dimensions and that is really a lot of fun. It made me miss the group chats, which I haven’t been participating in for about a year. I have found that I’ve needed to focus my energy on getting healthy and coaching people so I haven’t had a lot left over for group chats. The groups chatters do really important work, though, and we all benefit from what they do. The individual coaching I do tends to uplift my energy, so it has sustained me this whole time I’ve been working to get healthy. I’m really grateful that I’m able to do this work. It’s feels good to help someone on their path.
I was working on someone the other day and tried using that Golden Lemurian that we got in Arizona. It was an interesting experience because I couldn’t quite connect with it fully, but that may have been because I was distracted. I’m looking forward to using it more when I work on people. Some folks call it a Radiant Heart stone. It’s definitely that!
Anyway, if you feel up to it and have some time, try the exercise for accessing higher dimensions. It tends to put things in perspective and gives you a lot of good energy to work with.
We just got back from our trip to Quartzsite, Arizona, where we went to the annual rock and crystal show. I stocked up on an amazing variety of beads for my bracelets and I still have more to buy since I didn’t find everything I need. I was buzzing the whole time from the energy of all those crystals, and it didn’t seem to matter that I wasn’t sleeping well and I was fighting off a cold. The rocks kept me going! The best score of the whole trip was this Golden Lemurian cluster that Carol spotted at one of the vendor tents. She had her eye on a second, larger cluster and she thought Stevo and I would enjoy this one. We made the vendors day when we went back and bought both of them. If you look up Golden Lemurians on the internet you can read about where they come from (Brazil) and their special metaphysical properties. Stevo and I (especially Stevo) have a strong connection to the Lemurians, and we couldn’t walk away from this find.
I had wanted to blog during our trip but didn’t count on the fact that we’d be getting up early each day to get a parking spot at the show so we wouldn’t have to walk a few miles to get to the vendors. We took the dogs with us and they got a lot of attention and were very well-behaved. I just unpacked all my beads last night and put them away in the tackle boxes. I’m really excited about making more bracelets! As it is, I’ll be visiting Carol in a few weeks to go to the bead shop she uses and fill in what I coudn’t find at Quartzsite.
It was interesting to see what crystals were popular this year. There was a lot of Purple Flourite, Amazonite and Danburite. Carol found one lady who had a bunch of Stibnite and Danburite for really good prices, so we got several chunks of each. The beads are fun to shop for, the but big chunks of rock are really special. We barely had room to bring home all of our goodies.
Next year, we agreed we’ll go to Tuscon, which is where most of the gem dealers go. The shows are all in hotels and there will be a lot more quantity and variety of beads to choose from as well as more polished beauty pieces. I get a buzz every time I look at that Golden Lemurian cluster, which is currently sitting on our coffee table. It’s permanent home might be out in Steve’s office since it’s a healing stone. I told Stevo when we left for the trip that I felt we would find something special. We almost didn’t go because he was getting sick, I was afraid of getting sick, it was snowing like crazy and I had this irrational fear of leaving home. I think now that someone didn’t want us to find this Lemurian. We exercised our bravery muscles and left home (difficult for two cancer crabs) and had a great time!
I just spent the last few days feverishly updating my website and getting rid of the forum format. Now the information is much easier to find and navigation is simple. I hope to still incorporate other people’s input as sidebars, so feel free to email me if you want to share your experiences.
I have added several new bracelets and the organ energy bracelets, and I will have a larger variety of stones once I return from Quartzsite.
Meet our new friend Molly! We adopted her from our local shelter on Tuesday. Stevo and I had both, separately, asked Charlie and Black Jack to send us a dog friend for Sammy, and we found Molly just a few weeks later. The funny thing is that she has a lot of the personality traits of both Charlie and Black Jack. She’s a Yellow Lab and Golden Retriever mix, and she’s just the sweetest dog. She’s 5 or 6 years old but looks older because her face has gone prematurely gray. She’s quite willing to chase Sammy around, though, and actually wore him out earlier today. So the pressure is off me and Stevo to entertain!
Okay, you gotta buy a couple of these from Ben. They are amazing tools! Go to http://www.mortonorgoneart.spruz.com/ to check out all of Ben’s products. He makes beautiful orgone art pieces and he’s also selling basic TB’s for gifting. And he’s got a forum and a blog on his site. We played around with his orgone candles again when we visited Don and Carol a few weekends ago. We have two that Ben traded to us, and those are on our nightstands. So we took those with us and he had several more there at Don’s house. I picked up three and pointed them at my heart chakra, and all I can say is SHAZAM! What incredible energy. It’s like a clean, fresh wind blowing through your chakra. I get a particular sensation in my 7th chakra when I hold the orgone candle.
Ben showed us another device in development that is an orgone candle, SP and Etheric Laser Wand all in one. I could tell there was an orgone candle in it because I got the same feeling in my 7th chakra. It was really fun for me, Stevo and Ben to sit around and shoot the breeze about energy stuff and play with his new toys. Ben is very creative and a good soul.
When you get more energy sensitive and keep your space clear, it becomes much easier to distinguish the energy signatures of different orgone devices, people, entities, etc. That’s one of the things that makes it easier for me to do my work and the chats. After six years, I can really tell what kind of energy I’m dealing with.
I was coaching someone the other day who was being bombarded by radionics from a ship overhead, and I just imagined I was holding our two orgone candles in my hands, and I felt them there, and I chased the ship away from him. We also did that when we were in a chat with Carol and Don, working on boosting Stevo’s biz. I had one candle and Stevo had the other and we got rid of a ship that was over us. Powerful tool!
Our beloved dog Charlie died July 2nd of complications from a ruptured spleen. It was very sudden and quite a shock and we are still deeply grieving for him. Charlie was such a sweet and gentle soul, and we miss him every minute of every day. It feels like we’ve had one blow after another for the past year, and it’s very hard to maintain the etheric side of our lives when things like this happen.
Carol and Don had just visited us two days before Charlie died and the evening they were here we were hit with a HAARP storm with violent thunder and lightening and a wind that brought down three big pine trees on our property. I’m so glad Carol and Don got to see Charlie one more time. He really loved it when they visited, and Don always called him “Chuck”.
Charlie was 12-1/2 years old and had been our companion for almost all that time. In fact, we had him with us when we first came to the Bitterroot Valley and found the house we now live in. We drove up this road to go the trailhead at the end of the road so we could take Charlie for a walk and on the way up we saw the For Sale sign on this house. Two days later we made an offer and 45 days after that we moved in. One of Steve’s patients here who communicates with animals once told us that Charlie told her he had been here before, about 200 years ago. He said he was very happy to be back in this valley.
We will keep going on even though our hearts are broken, and hope that Charlie is happy now that he is free. I’ve had a few visits from him in my dreams and he just wants me to hug him. I hope he and Black Jack are together.
