There is a whole history behind celebrating this day and I appreciate that. It is not celebrated anywhere else in the world as far as I know but I do like the concept of taking a day to be thankful.

This is a year for me to be thankful as I have been blessed with so many wonderful things.

I am thankful that this year is almost over, when I think about all the turmoil it brought.
I am thankful that this year did bring so much turmoil and that it challenged me to change, grow and throw out all the old belief systems and the old baggage that was holding me back.
I am thankful for my old baggage because the weight of it brought me here and brought with it an opportunity to choose differently.

I am thankful for all the wonderful people in my life and for the true love I have found.
I give thanks to all my past relationships that have helped mold me into who I am and have helped me discern the qualities I wish for when choosing who I spend time with.

I am thankful for the little things that make my life a pleasure and create memorable days, like sunshine and flowers and flushing toilets and running water and the ocean and birds and laughter and all my senses....really the list goes on and on.

This thanksgiving day I cannot help but reflect on the many ways my life has shifted and changed since the last thanksgiving and I am left in awe of how grateful I am for it all. For all the tears and discomfort and all the conversations and healing. For bumping my head against the same issues and finally realizing the way to embrace and move past it all. For all the people who shared and cared with me and for me, and for all those that passed through my world and made a difference, knowingly or not. I am thankful that this day was created to hopefully help shift consciousness into a state of gratitude en mass, even if just for a day.

I wish to give thanks to this world and all its opportunities that it brings to help me be the perfect, whole and complete being that I have always been.

Remember that life is so much richer when we focus on the things that we are thankful for and everyday is the perfect day to do so. May this thanksgiving shed more light on gratitude and thankfulness than ever before.

Taking time for me..

This has been an incredible year filled with lots of tears and changes, as well as laughter and travelling.

Why do we always wait for a crisis to make decisions that would have been made a lot easier if we did them in a timely manner?
I love what I do but have been starting to feel burned out and in need of a break. I obviously did not think that I deserved it on some level and did not pay enough attention to it. Finally the Universe (as I call the forces that be) created an opportunity for me to make a choice.
I felt kinda pushed into it and a whole fountain of emotions ensued.

Guilt is such a useless emotion that really does not serve anyone (my opinion). If we act in any manner of our choice, why feel guilty about it? it because of the reaction of others?...and are you to be held responsible for that?...
I put those thoughts out there because that was the strongest emotion I felt when I decided to close my office and take time of for me. I felt guilty for abandoning all my clients. For thinking of myself first.

Fortunately for me I do have practitioners that I see for my own care and with their gifts and guidance I have been reminded of the term 'healer heal thyself' and that I deserve to take time for me.

My advice is to take the time you need to care for yourself and to recharge your batteries and be able to come back with more light and energy. This is the best service you can offer anyone else.
It gives everyone around you permission to do the same and to be able to do it without the guilt.

This short sabbatical will allow me to focus on my passion for health and healing of the subtle bodies that make up our whole being. I can read all those books and write to my hearts content and never feel like I have to be somewhere or worry about this one or that one and all their health concerns. I free all of you to take responsibility for your health and to do what you think is right for you, I certainly am and I am proud of it.

Swindlers everywhere..


I cannot believe that there are people out there devising elaborate schemes to swindle you out of money. I would think that if they spent as much time and effort doing an honest days work that they would be pretty successful, but I guess they get way more satisfaction and excitement causing someone else misery.

The latest is a sweepstakes competition allegedly from Microsoft in the Netherlands to say that you have won thousands of Euros and a laptop......Yipee...that is until you call Microsoft headoffice here and ask if they know anything about this and they laugh and say do not pay any attention to it, it is a hoax!!

The red flag did get a nudge when the email arrived but I thought, what the hell, lets see where this goes. I then get an email from Worldwide International courier stating that due to the large sum of money, an insurance policy is covering it and the cost of shipping it to me is my responsibility and will be about 500 Euro.....The red flag could not stop waving!!!
And it was best to be sent through their accredited Western Union or money gram as they can pick it up the same day and get your prize to you quicker as bank wires take three days!!

Like I said, an elaborate scheme and all over email! How do you as the average Joe trace that and how can it be authenticated?

I still blows my mind that there are people out there that think honesty is NOT the best policy and if you are stupid enough to send someone your money then its your loss and their gain.
I trust that the wheel does turn and that one turn indeed does deserve another!!

Good luck to all you swindlers, may your day come!!
