Have you ever chased the Ice Cream Truck? I remember running through the house, screaming to my Mama, chasing the truck down the street and being so excited about getting ice cream from the Ice Cream Person! I would be full of laughter and anticipation of my wondrous treat. It just was not the same as going to the store for this special treat. This wonderful memory was made fresh when I saw – and actually ran after – an Ice Cream Truck at a friends house. And the truck was my favorite color too – purple! I was happy to bring back that feeling of joy. It reminded me how serious we take life as we grow into adulthood.
I challenge each and every one of you to think back to a wonderful memory and get happy! It is a choice. I was recently at the grocery store and it was busy. I noticed the people around me were not even smiling. I could feel they were really uptight. I put a smile on my face, took a deep breath and began thinking about Tai Chi in the park and I began to feel really happy. So, choose your thoughts and be happy!
What leads people to their spiritual path? I often think of the synchronicity which took place in my life that completely changed my course. My Sister-in-law talked to me about Reiki. At the time I thought it was all “voo-doo” stuff and I had no interest in it. Then I began to see a massage therapist and even though I loved the benefits of massage I began to get sensitive when she touched me. Fibromyalgia was one of my physical challenges and just the mere touch from others was irritating and uncomfortable. When I explained this to her, my massage therapist suggested I allow her to do Reiki with me. Although I felt cautious because of my Catholic background I allowed her to do a session. I was amazed that I could feel waves of energy and then I knew there had to be something to this Reiki stuff.
I went on to become a Reiki Master. I recognized myself as an Empath and because I could feel so strongly I was able to help others. I practiced Reiki at a local Farmer’s Market where someone asked me if I ever considered doing Spiritual Counseling. I returned to schooling and brought Spiritual Counseling into my Reiki Sessions. I returned for more schooling to learn about energy. As my training and skills expanded I became interested in opening a Wellness Center. I had a great desire to help others who, like myself, were looking for that “something more” in life. I opened my Lightworkers Gifts and Energy Healing Center. In the ten years I have walked my path I have learned much about many modalities in the metaphysical community. More than that, I have learned about myself – who I am and how I can help others. It is almost as though I am paying forward the guidance and love that several others offered to me as I began this journey.
I often hear others tell how they too feel as though synchronicity played a role when they were yearning for something unknown in their life. The stories are filled with enlightenment, self knowing, new talents, greater creativity and a desire to help others as they were helped. These stories are also often filled with joy, laughter and deep appreciation.
So how to get started? From what I observe and hear, people are still asking the age old question, “Who am I and why am I here?” When we begin to search, and because we have asked the question, our Higher Self, our God/Goddess or Spirit guides us to an amazing journey. In my opinion we are always on our path. When we resonate with others who are asking the same question, when we allow enlightenment and begin to have fun with this eye opening experience, our path appears before us!

Almost two years! I have been waiting for my website to be finished and on line for nearly two years! It seems like this has been such a challenge – every time I step toward progress a new challenge crops up. I think to myself, “Is there a message here or a lesson?
Opportunities for my personal spiritual growth are abundant right now. I have been experiencing several signs of Ascension – evolving to a higher frequency. As stated in my recent newsletters the signs of this transformation might take place in several ways. One indication is recognizing opportunities for personal and spiritual growth, decisions about taking new directions and discovering new desires. I know this is a part of my own shifting.
Then, last Saturday I was part of organizing and videoing a skit on how to network. It was then I realized the message has not changed! Getting caught up in a busy career and home life it can be easy to forget be authentic, be yourself, to face your truth. In the midst of dealing with my website I recognized everything is truly as it should be and I am the champion of my life. I began to understand the progress with my website is exactly where it is because I am still defining my desires!
Many people call me in a state of conflicted emotions. They make statements such as, “I feel an urgency to learn, to make changes and find out who I really am. I feel the urge to learn about Reiki and what role this plays in my life.” Others express a desire to find their inner joy. Some tell me, “I am stressed (over a variety of life situations) and find it difficult to relax and simply have fun.” Many express they want to learn about boundaries and how to have greater control over their desires.
This entire shift, the evolution to a higher frequency, is also gearing us into defining who we are and what role we wish to play. Life changes involving career, family and friends are taking place more often. Many are searching for and finding their greatness, focusing on leveraging their passions and making greater use of their gifts while seeking ways to help others. No matter what route we take to get there we are discovering our Higher Self and making more choices with our hearts.
So, as I continue my spiritual growth I am reminded to continue living in joy and appreciation. I practice living in the moment while allowing life to unfold before me. I am also practicing patience – an often humorous adventure for a Gemini! Allowing while creating; allowing while taking action – by shifting perspectives and being open to our true Self, lessons are learned and spiritual growth takes place. As this happens there is great understanding that everything is as it should be. Even my website!
I went to Prescott this last week for some “me” time. I wanted to get away from all the electronics and spend time in nature. Even with this in mind I took along my computer. Although Wi-Fi was available I could not get on the internet. I laughed a little knowing I was there to get away from what I actually brought along! With the internet excluded I found other little things to do. As I made my way through this time I began to realize I did not have to push so hard in my day to day life and taking some quiet time was beneficial. I slowed my pace, felt more in balance and connected to nature. I spoke to the Cicadas that at times were quite loud. I spoke to them about “being” as they are; to exist in the moment, to grow and be in nature. I felt the Cicadas song was just for me – a song of confirmation that quiet time is healing. Watch the video and listen to their beautiful song!
When I returned to the city and came back on line I realized I did not miss anything. I discovered I had greater clarity and focus. Many of my manifested desires seemed to pop all around me.
My experience is similar to what just happened to a friend of mine. She accidentally locked herself out of her house and onto the patio. When she told me about it she said the experience forced her into a quiet time. She relaxed, meditated and spent time loving her plants and surrounding trees.
Spending quiet time has so many benefits! Whether you meditate, spend time in nature, manifest or BE in the moment, the quiet brings balance, peace, inner joy, introspection and the answer to our desires.
