Showing up in gratitude and healing presence

In this season of Thanks and renewal may you all find ways to be present in the best version of yourselves. It can be a time of true exercise in staying in our Truth, and shining our Light and showing up from our Heart centers.

Here are some words that I have posted in a couple of places to help me remember on a daily basis, how I want to be :

BEFORE you speak THINK

T= Is it TRUE?

H= Is it HELPFUL?

I= Is it INSPIRING?

N= Is it NECESSARY?

K= Is it KIND?


These words are from my healing touch friend and colleague Dr. Deborah R. Goldberg, an amazing teacher, writer and therapist.

In This Place in time

I vow to stay present to my experience.

In this place in time

I vow to build relationships and mend ones.

In this place in time

I vow to follow my heart and take action from a place of love.

In this place in time

I vow to honor my feelings through self- acknowledgement and validation.

I realize it is the only way to fully heal.

In this place in time

I vow to realize my potential and make it so to the best of my ability

In this place in time

I vow to recognize that I have a purpose and I surrender to that purpose willingly

In this place in time

I vow to see the light in every situation through my light within

In this place in time

I vow to be of service to the greater good for the betterment of the whole

In this place in time I choose to BE Heaven on Earth

______________________________________________________________

Its that time of year again! Here is the basic recipe for turmeric milk – a great make ahead easy way to make this for yourself or give it for a sweet holiday present is, to get dry coconut milk and mix it with the dry spices- stored in a jar, all you need to do is add hot water the sweetener and vanilla to your individual cup- it works great! I’ve thought about adding dark cocoa to the powder mix, but have not tried it yet! Someone let me know if you do!

Turmeric milk -rich, creamy and satisfying a soothing evening treat or a warming alternative for that mid- day coffee or tea. Adding black pepper to the mixture will greatly increase the absorption of turmeric into the body. It also gives the drink a spicy kick.

For one serving you will need:

one cup milk (vegan milks work great!)

1/4-1/2 teaspoon turmeric

3/4- 1 teaspoon sweetener of your choice

1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom (or a few cardamom pods)

pinch of powdered ginger or small piece of peeled ginger root

dash of vanilla extract

dash of black pepper or black peppercorns

pinch of cloves (if desired)

pinch of allspice (if desired)

sieve/strainer

1) Heat the milk on the stove. When milk becomes warm, add turmeric powder. Stir slowly to dissolve any lumps.

The liquid will take on a rich, mustard color.

2) Add the honey, ginger root, vanilla and spices.

3) Keep the pot on gentle heat for a few minutes

4) Pour the milk through a fine sieve to remove the ginger root, cardamom and pepper. (The turmeric can be a bit grainy, too.)

5) Enjoy!

All ingredients can be adjusted for individual tastes!

Autumn 2018 Updates

The change of season came quickly this year! Its been interesting to get the fall harvest gathered in between the raindrops! Nearly done digging roots for winter wellness and gathering the last bundles of herbs along with the garden annuals. I hope this note finds you feeling well and settling in to the changes with ease.

I attended the Healing Beyond Borders international conference for a week in early September. It was amazing. I completed the first phase of my training for teaching Course two workshops and attended many speaker sessions that expanded my skills and tools to be able to serve my clients more fully. New applications of techniques for assisting with trauma release,integrating past and present,and visioning for the future. I am excited to have these new options and have been using them as part of my own self care routine.

This poem resonated with me and the transitions I am experiencing in my own life right now.

Autumn Leaves

Golden, crisp leaves falling softly from almost bare trees,

Lifting and falling in a hushed gentle breeze.

Slowly dropping to the soft cushioned ground,

Whispering and rustling a soothing sound.

Coppers, golds, and rusted tones,

Mother Nature’s way of letting go.

They fall and gather one by one,

Autumn is here, summer has gone.

Crunching as I walk through their warm, fiery glow,

Nature’s carpet rich and pure that again shall grow.

To protect and shield its majestic tree,

Standing tall and strong for the world to see.

They rise and fall in the cool, crisp air.

It’s a time of change in this world we share,

Nature’s importance reflecting our own lives,

Letting go of our fears and again, too, we shall thrive .

HOLISTIC WELLNESS GETAWAY

For years Joseph and I have talked about how to help people put into practice the information and lifestyle changes that we share with them. We all have tools in our tool boxes that we don’t readily use because its hard to figure out how to shift our habits and make room. As a result of the CUTV interview I finally organized our ideas into a service package. You don’t have to be from out of town to get in on this deal!
