The Fall Equinox – A time of the Cosmic Mother & Our Divine Truth

On Friday, September 22nd into Saturday, September 23rd we mark the transition from the longest day of the year into the gradual progression towards the shortest day of the year. The fall equinox is upon us. The significance of this moment… at precisely 1:50am central time on Saturday the 23rd we are presented with equal day hours and equal night time hours across the globe as the sun crosses the earth’s equator from north to south. It is a point in our global community where we can bring in global balance. During this time there is an opportunity to shift our own consciousness and spiritually merge into our own personal truth. Meaning, our previous goals and aspirations are now harvested and we are preparing to be taken to the next level of our alignment, whatever we may determine that to be.

It is an opportunity to recognize our accomplishments and remain in sincere gratitude for the help of the universe bringing us closer to our desires. It is a time to pause, give thanks, and begin to contemplate our next cycle of celestial rebirthing. We celebrate our prosperity as we begin to nourish the next cycle of development beginning to unfold before us. As we begin the descent into the darker months we honor and internally nurture the next phase of our goals by continuing to refine and strengthen our talents. It is truly a sacred time.

This is the significance of merging with the Cosmic Mother and the opportunities before us calling us to unite with our Divine Sovereign Truth.

As we acknowledge and harvest we also begin directing our intentions. We refine and enhance our personal alchemical process.

The darker months unite us with the cosmic mother, the womb of creation. We enter into the next phase of comfort and reassurance as we reaffirm we are on the right path. Summer moved us into a grander vision as we spread our wings and either learned to fly or elevated our skills into acrobatic miraculous measures. We have gained an undeniable understanding of who we are and what we desire to bring forth during this next phase of internal growth and nourishment.

We realize we are capable of extending ourselves further than ever before and we desire to continue to diligently work on the next phase of our expressions of truth. We faithfully begin to enter into the rebirthing womb of the cosmic mother. We intend to cultivate our desires by allowing time to refine creative projects and develop new aspirations as we merge closer to our soul’s purpose and spirit’s joy. We set our heart’s intentions forward on the next 6 months knowing that as we envision our future in this NOW moment, all will come into fruition as we prepare our rebirthing in the Spring – the emergence of the Cosmic Father.

This is truly a time of refined learning, more tuning within, and deeper understanding of our truth.

We ready ourselves for the next journey by honoring where we are and envisioning what else will come. We walk side by side with our highest potential and holding sacred our divine sovereign soul’s purpose and spirit’s joy.

A sacred time indeed.

In honor of this time…. i invite you to a sacred ceremony.


This is a two hour evening dedicated to honoring the divinity within through sacred ceremony and activation meditations.

The unified chakras, light body consciousness, and active manifestation processes will be some of the evening content.

It is my goal to honor how far you have come and help you learn how to activate and enhance the next 6 months of the sacred time of darkness as we enter upon the womb of the cosmic mother. An inspiring opportunity to move consciously into the next 6 months of our highest potential.

Join me as we step into this next divine phase.

Then if it feels right and good for you… I encourage you to continue to…

Reiki & the Miraculous

Reiki is universal life force energy beginning to be understood by the general public. I like to think of reiki as a direct connection to Consiousness with a capital ‘C’. It is universal life force energy that has the capacity to upgrade our energy to greater versions of ourselves that can be tuned into and tapped into miracles. I discovered this about 20 years ago and it keeps me humbled today.

I wrote about “Why I do Reiki” in a recent blog where I briefly spoke about many of the reasons I find Reiki an asset to almost any practice. It is NOT an alternative therapy and it IS complimentary to many of the day to day activities we already engage. Reiki has been a part of me for so long that it just is in everything I do. From therapy related roles, to being a parent, cleaning my own house, to consulting with businesses, to workshops, and life changing programs I offer on a regular basis. It is infused in everything.

I am attaching an article on the scientific ‘normalcy’ of Reiki and how it is studied and proven to shift energy which creates a more neutral / zero point balance within people, places, and things allowing for healing and accelerated shifts in consciousness (little ‘c’ on purpose) to higher more connected states of awareness and a return back to Consciousness itself (capital ‘C’ on purpose). Understand? (wink, wink)

I also want to invite you to learn Reiki with me. I’m teaching at Black Cat Yoga in Libertyville, IL this coming Friday thru Sunday and again in October (links here). AND I am extending this really great possibility IF you would like to learn but scheduling and distance is a problem… we can learn REIKI REMOTELY!

Because energy has no bounds and I perform services online all the time with energy clearing and reiki sessions the possibility of learning reiki and feeling and personally embodying the energy IS absolutely what we CAN do.

As for now… please enjoy this brief and thorough article on The Science Behind Reiki.



It’s Only Change…

14 hours of reflection on my drive back from Colorado.

I just returned from a long drive out to Denver, Colorado. It’s about 14 hours. Coming from Illinois it is very serene, beautiful, and eloquently elongated ride through the countryside of Iowa, Nebraska, & Colorado. There is something I love about hoping in a car and going for a ride across country. Driving just brings a serenity and state of mind that allows for clean thinking and being along the routes of the beautiful country we live upon. I’ve driven up the coast from Arizona to California, driven across from Arizona, thru New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, to Illinois. I’ve driven down through Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Florida. Across the country again through Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York State, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York City. I’ve gone through Virginia, North Carolina, & South Carolina.

With all of these trips there is always one connecting thread, ‘wherever we go and whatever we do, there we are.’ We see what we want to see in every moment. We see with the eyes that come from the perceptions of our inner truth. It doesn’t matter where I go or what I do I always see in others a reflection of what is truly within myself. Everyone is a reflection of a facet of a diamond with which we all contain. Truly we are all facets of the same diamond reflecting upon one another an aspect of ourselves.

This one recent trip out to Colorado was a significant turning point in our family. My middle son made his final transition over to college. It has taken him several extra years as a high school graduate of 2021. Well worth the wait, he entered upon a new chapter in his life. For this, as a parent it comes with mixed emotions. Relieved, he has finally come into his own grounded stated of awareness that took the time to reflect what was truly important to him and what he wanted to do with these next years of his life. Sorrowful, I don’t get to see him everyday and look into his love filled eyes of purity that shine upon you when he connects. Delighted, he is becoming a self empowered man and gaining skills and confidence daily. Joyful, this new beginning is happening for us all.

After the long awaited anticipation of this time was finally here and after we spent the past week unloading his new life it finally came upon me the time to reflect on my solo 14 hour drive back from Colorado. I savored this time with myself. Allowing to work through every emotional wave of instability, doubt, and fear that would surface as I contemplated all the memories of our past 20 years together. I felt hollows and depths within my heart that I was never aware of until this long drive. Not trying to figure it out and allowing the memories, the regrets, the excitements, the wins and the losses of his life in our family come to surface. I have my version and he of course, he has his. As I completely let go and allow for the new relationship that will be forming between our family to unfold I look back at all the events in our life containing Aiden with complete honor. I am honored to be his mother and friend. Honored that he allowed me to enter into one facet of his life for such a short time. I hold new hopes of a new life that will be filled with more diamond moments of Aiden and all the love that he offered in this stage of his life. I look forward to more and how our family dynamic continues to evolve and transition over to new possibilities for us all. A beautiful dance we get to do where we think we know the next steps and then have to just go with the flow of the music.

From this day and every day, I will allow for new versions of all of us to come forward. Once someone shifts to a new level in our life everyone gets to try out other versions of themselves. For this, I am thankful. Now we get to see what else is just around the corner.

Sometimes change can be difficult and sometimes change comes with great relief and sometimes change is exactly what we needed but didn’t know we needed it until we find ourselves in the change itself. The thing is, we wake up new everyday. We are never the same as we were yesterday, nor shall we ever be. The only thing that stays the same is the idea that there is always change. And that is good.

In Kundalini yoga, there is a mantra, “Sa Ta Na Ma”. It’s about change. How we go through the seasons of life through all the seasons of change and living fully in every way possible. It is a mantra of reflection, allowing, and cycles. When it is repeated for 11 minutes it begins to allow ourselves to sink deeply into change with the new heart felt understanding that with love and living change will always be there and embracing this constant is the way though many perceived obstacles in our lives. It has been said, to be the change you would like to see in another. For me, I like to see people evolve and become more versions of themselves through simple change by breathing into life and allowing what speaks in our heart to live through our day to day actions. I believe in love and how the love of life always changes us for good. When we allow we evolve and shift into something brighter as we stay present, listen, and let go.

And much like the new season of fall that is upon us, as we witness the leaves drift to the ground, we get to welcome more changes and more seasons taking us further along on our journey we get to call “life”. My highest hope is that you welcome change, allow it to unfold, and that it comes effortlessly into existence through drifting peace that is all around us.

And if it ever seems to be a struggle, I pray you take the time to be still and know “it’s only change” the forever constant we will always have within our hearts. I pray you will reach into the stillness of your heart and allow for your dance to flow through you taking you to the next steps of your life.

Sometimes, there is nothing left to do.

We feel it, we sense it, it is undeniable.

With all our heart.

And yet…

Obligations, pressures, responsibilities… keep us pressing foward.

One day… after we have been around the same corner… time and time again… we decide… it just doesn’t matter anymore. 

What drove us to do it the way we did it before…


What inspired us to believe the way we did before…


What created the life around us in the past…

              Moves on

And everything changes.

It just goes away.

All thoughts,

All fears,

All worries,

Linger in an abyss.

They will always be there…

Until eventually, we find the hold they had on us before…

Just no longer exists.

The darkness is no longer fearful.

It becomes instead…

A sacred womb.

A tomb of safety.

A confinement sought after.

A stillness much desired.

We find…

In the darkness… is where we find ourselves again. 

It’s where we were always hiding, waiting to come home. 

A place of process.



A becoming.

All pain and grief are released. 

Making room for new forms to be created. 

Only within the womb of the mother.

Remain in the darkness.  Not to be feared and only cherished and desired. 

Through darkness… we become.

In the past our directions were navigated by the winds out there. 

Blowing us around… making us feel inadequate and insecure. 

We reacted to the world around us. 

Until one day, we finally realized.

The stillness is where we dig deep into our grounding. 

The darkness is where we allow the roots to take hold. 

We hold onto something bigger than us.  Something that surrounds us eternally.  Something that has always been there. 

The light we could never see. 

Come back home.

Spend time in the womb.

Be in the darkness.

The stillness of the heart.

No need to achieve, or become, or have, or do. 

You are a wild thing. 

Meant to grow and prosper right here.    

The darkness.  The depths.  The seeds.  The roots that grow deep.  Becoming stronger.  Effortlessly growing into the desires of the heart. 

In the stillness of the dark is the return.

Come back home.    


Where there is stillness, we see again.  Where there is nothingness, we sense again.  For there we are, and everywhere we shall be.

Through the eyes of a child, there is hope.

The laughter of a sparrow, there is presence. 

The callings of a crow, there is knowing. 

Be still and know, there is always more.

It will always be there.

Stillness is the doorway to a perception without limitation and full of creative possibility.

Our lives are constantly moving forward, no matter what.  Everything keeps going…moving…shifting…changing.  There is no stopping change.  It just happens.  We all change.  We all shift.  It is inevitable. 

Everything around us is a representation of this.  The cycles of life are present everywhere. In kundalini yoga there is the mantra Sa Ta Na Ma…birth, life, death, rebirth.  Then there are the seasons of mother earth…winter, spring, summer, and fall.  We also have the four directions…north, south, east, west.  We have four basic elements around us everywhere…earth, air, fire, and water.  The cycles of life are intertwined and a living and breathing part of all stages, all realms, all disciplines, all environments, all institutions.  These stages are a part of everything, everyone, and everywhere.  Change is the only thing that is constant.  It is a part of us.

I have difficulty with change.  I usually stay where I am until forced to go forward.  It can be one of my largest assets and one of my biggest detriments.  

This became so apparent to me the other morning.  As I was practicing kundalini yoga, breath, and meditation… I was feeling a sense of hesitation.  I did not feel fully present and was having difficulty moving through certain postures. 

This is not the first time I have been present to the resistance with my practice. I decided to continue to only focus on the techniques of the breath pattern and the formation of the postures and allowed myself the freedom to explore the sensations that were coming up.  First, I began focusing my breathing… I breathed into the resistance.  With breath control, I stayed present to the energy and allowed the energy to naturally move on its own.   Then I decided to breathe light into any area of my body containing resistance.  I stayed out of all the mind chatter.  Allowed all thoughts to just wander away.  And continued to only breathe and practice.  And things began to shift. They started to unfold.  The fears began to unravel all on their own.  All I did was breathe, move through the postures, and allow the thoughts to just drift away.  I kept going.  Taking the breath to the next level.  I used an 8 counted breath, inhaling deeply for 8 counts, suspending my breath, and then exhaled completely for another count of 8.  With repetition and persistence, I began to shift even more.  My body began to relax, my nervous system aligned, and my mind silenced.  The intensity subsided, the constrictions softened, and space began to emerge.  The breath and the postures became effortless and flowing.  And suddenly, yoga became my friend again. 

I sank deeper and deeper into my practice.  I became rooted and all obstacles ceased to be present.    

Suddenly, there was nothing left but the air around me, the water in front of me, the earth below me, and the fire within me.  I became the cycle.  The cycle became me.  And in that moment, nothing but stillness remained, and the greatest gift emerged.  Stillness became the doorway taking me to a perception without limitation and full of creative possibility.   

Thoughts may come and go, cycles continue, and seasons change.  We have breath and choice.  By choosing to breathe through the sensations it is possible to gain access to a reality where resistance no longer exists.  ~Jennifer Lauren, IntuitLove

Lesson 6 — I Wonder (taken from Transcending Limitations)

10 minutes of inspiration

We must wonder every day. We must take the time to turn every lower negative thought into a game of wonder. We must do as a child does. Wonder in every way. We can wonder about everything, every person, place, and thing. Wondering can look something like this:

I wonder if I could change this enormous house into a huge garden or a bungalow for homeless people!

I wonder what it would be like to rollerblade from Illinois to Florida!

I wonder what would happen if I kept wondering about all the wonderful  things I wonder about!

Many of us lost the capability to wonder in adulthood. We forgot what it feels like to wonder. When did the seriousness become us? We must return to the realm of wondering. If we are to transform this world into the New Earth, we must wonder about everything that comes into our lives. Wonder uses imagination and it brings in creativity, fun, joy, and expansion. It never judges or fills our lives with mental thoughts of limitation and “I can’t”. It always asks, “I wonder” and follows it up with imagination and elated being.

I wonder what wonderful things will happen today? Wondering, wonders to the universe and then the universe smiles back with amazing answers of grace and gratitude recognizing the purpose of life is experiencing the ocean instead of  a cup  from the ocean. “I wonder” brings in unlimited expectation, freedom, expansion, joy, and love. It elevates, protects, and enhances everyone and everything it meets. There is no answer of “no” and only an answer of “I wonder”. And as we ask, the answers that come to us are limitless opportunity. To get to this place, we must ‘wonder’ what it would take to get here and, how we can allow  the energy of “I wonder” to transform our lives.

Can you wonder with an inquisitive childlike mind about everything that is happening around you? Even during a conversation that you don’t want to be in. Even amidst the conversation that is a struggle to keep alive. The topic may be dragging on and an enormously difficult time is spent connecting. Suddenly, your child steps in and lightens up the density of the situation with “I wonder how I can connect and lighten this conversation?” You begin to wonder about all types of possibilities and suddenly, the words of a joke come wondering in, lightening up the mood. You tell the joke with such ease and joy that by the end, everyone is laughing and connecting. Now you have 5 new people and 5 new connections who have literally lightened up and experienced how ingeniously fun life can become. This is the magic of “I wonder.” It helps everyone become as a child with an enlightening smile… it just lightens up life!

When you see a limitation… You ask, “I wonder” what it would be like to be without this limitation. You question everything and then you sense and feel within your body where the restriction lays. Where do I feel this in my body? Because when we see something that stands in the way, it is only because we hold something within ourselves that is keeping us from seeing that this limitation is not even real. It is an illusion.

Remember, this is directly connected to the heart. If we see something out there as limiting and frustrating, then we go deeper and take care of our own frustrations that are keeping us from wondering. We can wonder to a state of elevation lifting us higher  to possibilities once thought  as impossible. Ideally, we become everything that is possible. This is the imagination that is more important than mental knowledge. As we open to the possibility  of wondering even more than we already are we give permission for absolutely everything to show up. Try it.

I will never forget sitting in the car with little Ethan in the car seat at a gas station waiting for the car to finish refueling. We just brought Ethan home from the hospital. As I sat waiting, Ethan was sleeping soundly, and I gazed out the front window. I was still in some shock over the new life that was unfolding before us. I was anticipating all the changes we would have to make to adjust to all the medical devices that would fill his newly decorated room and the extra supplies that would have to be stored away.

As I sat there gazing in subtle anxious wonder, I focused on a person running in the distance. This person was out for a jog, running in the direction towards us. As he approached a thought occurred to me, “I wonder what would happen if we could get Ethan to run? I wonder if this is possible?” This was astronomically impossible according to what we were told by the doctors only hours before leaving the hospital. We had already made our upcoming appointments that would be centered around all the things that were wrong with Ethan and his newly developing disabled body.

Despite these thoughts, I continued to gaze out the window and wonder. I wondered if despite all the horrible things the doctors told us about Ethan’s new life if he could learn to walk anyway. I wondered what it would take and how we could make it happen. I wondered if we could make leg braces to support his legs to give him that feeling of strength. I wondered if there were people who would join me in this dream. I wondered what kinds of foods and supplements we could use to help him. I wondered. I just sat there watching the runner inch closer and closer and my mind raced with wonder as my heart began to climb in vibrational joy.

I was no longer caught in anxiety and despair over the day-to-day things I was going to have to do to help Ethan survive. I was now caught up in the wondering of how I was going to help him thrive. Simply by sitting and wondering and being inspired by a runner off in the distance my heart began to sing, wondering about all possibility and how we were going to bridge wonder and reality together so that our dreams would manifest. In that one wonderful moment everything shifted and wondering about doing the impossible became our heightened reality.

When you wonder about things all day long, it will bring up your limiting beliefs about life. When this happens,  notice how it holds a restriction in your body. This is your opportunity to free this area by opening to wonder while  the universe magically drops inspiration into your heart. This opens you to the possibility of seeing, sensing, and knowing that the unlimited will show up. Wondering helps us believe in the possible before it even happens. We must know with absolute certainty  anything is possible before it  happens.

As we work in the realm of “wondering” we are working with our hearts to create amazing  answers to life’s dilemmas. These are just waiting and wanting to be revealed. Everything can happen, will happen, and is happening. Everything.

At any given moment there is something floating out there in the energy of the universe with a new idea, a new solution, and a new answer to anything that you wonder about. It is this way because “I wonder” is a highly creative energy filled with spirit and imagination. When we  connect with the spirit of joy, imagination, love, and creativity there is no way that anything less than this can show up.

This does require practice. We must train ourselves  to wonder as if we would train our body to learn a new exercise such as running, weightlifting, or any number of activities. We must train ourselves to become our  limitless selves. We must wonder every day, multiple times of the day. One hundred times a day we must imagine, we must create, we must elevate. No matter what we believe. No matter what our situation and no matter how far down the rabbit hole we have gone, we can still wonder. It is our job to wake up and see our shortcomings, see our limitations, and then turn them around. This is our way. This is our practice. This is what we are to accomplish individually and collectively.

Therefore, we elevate, and through elevation, we naturally return to the very thing we are. We are meant to transcend all limitations in every way possible. No matter what. There is always an answer and frequently it is something greater than you can ever dream or imagine yourself. This is why we pray, “This or something greater”. Positive expectation plants the seeds of trust in anticipation of the growth. We hold the vision and let go of the outcome. Meaning, I see it, I hold it, and I remain open to it or something better showing up which creates elevation and advance knowing to drop in. This is how masters become masters. They tap into their questioning of “Why not?” Let us see, let us open to the possibility, let us create, and let us do this. Then they invest all their heart and love into expansion in that area, always remaining open to all possibilities, and allowing their minds to be the passengers that help to lead, guide, and direct.

The heart knows. The heart is connected to all that is. The heart is creativity. The heart is imagination. The heart is elevated, expansive, enhanced, an amazing love unlike most have ever experienced before. It is only through the heart that everything can and will and does happen. This is your oneness with all that is, which is how true miracles happen all the time. Then you realize there is no turning back, no other way to live, but to fully give and to love through the heart. The heart can become everything in this universe, and it is right there. Always waiting for you, within yourself.  Just listen to the voice. It knows the way. Open, expand, become, because you are the ocean.

Manifestation 101 – Our Soul’s Purpose & Spirit’s Joy – 5 Minute Inspiration

Yesterday, I transcended another limitation.  I realized a current belief did not line up with what I intuitively desired and the current relationships showing up. 

I have many goals.  When I took a second, third, and forth look at why something wasn’t showing up in my life, knowing I intuitively wanted this desire to manifest with all my heart, I realized I was the one who needed to shift my own perception so that this idea could begin to manifest.   I reevaluated my approach by using one of my well-established programs, The Sandwich Connection, shifted the barriers through the techniques and my manifestation began to effortlessly unfold.  The people in my life showed up in the way I had always imagined, and the goal became a reality.  The amount of gratitude I had for the enlightenment I felt and the unexplainable satisfaction of figuring out what I was really doing to sabotage this goal became a pivotal realization into my own healing and simultaneously an opening to a world I knew was possible.  It was a monumental turning point. 

I changed the script in my life so that what I truly desired from my heart could be realized.  I sensed, I felt, I breathed, I listened, I asked, and moved my body. Then again, I repeated the process, I sensed more, felt more, breathed more, listened more, asked more, moved more, and kept the process going until it finally happened.  Suddenly… I broke open to the complete understanding of WHAT I WAS TRULY DOING TO KEEP THIS FROM SHOWING UP.  It was a revelation of consciousness unexplainable in words and only truly felt and understood within the heart. 

This shift in perception instantaneously put me on the path to the realization of my dreams. 

When we see where we are and what we have been up to, then we can finally get to where we would desire ourselves to be. 

Quite frankly, if we are connected to Source… which we all are… we become conscious creators in our lives… no matter what.  We must tune into our thoughts, our belief systems, and the energy that is within us and surrounding us.  Our word choices, our body language, our sensations, our experiences all give us clues to why something is happening and how to resolve the current issue.

I did not like what was showing up, so I breathed into every experience where this limitation was showing up.  I sensed deeply into my body and felt fully into the expressions of what was happening around me.  I became still, silent, and fully present with the experience. I allowed the process to unfold within me so that I could merge with what was not showing up and understand. I became aware.   

I didn’t have to relive a story or go into any cycles of drama.  I just became aware of anything that was happening within and around me and allowed for the story my mind was creating to unfold before me.  And then I asked myself the question, “Do I believe this to be true?”  I followed the story line until I realized I had been creating this thought and belief since I was a little girl.  Once I realized I could allow the fragmented girl to merge with my true self I regained a part of me lost in another reality and played the same story line taking away from the current experience I was attempting to manifest.  It became a reunion within myself and the letting go of current perceptions clouding the heartfelt experience I desired. 

Some of us want success but we are secretly afraid that we will fail, lose our current relationships, we don’t deserve our desires, it’s not safe to be ourselves or be seen or even heard.  Any number of beliefs or ideas can show up.   

When this happens, it may be helpful to ask ourselves as a child asks… “why or what is that?” Then as an adult we can ask ourselves with childlike curiosity, “Why do I feel this, why do I believe this, why is this a limitation?” …and resist the temptation to blame, point fingers, or judge anyone and especially ourselves.   Merely sense into the experience, merge with the untruth, and allow it to speak one last time.  Give it the attention it desires for yourself first.  Then we find something amazing happens… instead of the untruth taking us over, we can forgive and release it knowing it was there serving us a purpose at one point in our lives to get us to where we currently are.  We can allow it to be finally forgiven and released knowing that as we do it will evaporate and transcend into a beautiful transformative light energy that will no longer rule our world.  As it evaporates and leaves, we can begin to breathe more, move more, and make more space for what we truly desire to manifest through our hearts.   This is how effortless and expansive this process can be when we learn to merge with ourselves and the SOURCE OF CONSIOCUSNESS within us all

We finally merge and create with our Soul’s purpose and Spirit’s joy! 

If you would like more information on how to transcend & transform limitations possibly manifesting in your life… within your current family & relationships, career & purpose, health & spirit on all physical, mental, and emotional levels it may be helpful to contact me and set up a consult to see how one of my many programs or energy sessions may help your process or the process of someone close to you.  I created the Sandwich Connection, Becoming Intuitive, teach Reiki and Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, and  offer personal Energy Healing Sessions with one simple intention… I have one truth… to help the world transcend out of the darkness of lower thoughts & belief systems and ascend into the light as quickly and effortlessly as possible on all levels of reality.    This I know to be true.

“Our power of creation lives through our heart. We see it, we hear it, we sense it, we embody it. It is our navigational system.  It can do, be and allow anything to happen that is truly all encompassing and completely as itself, love.”  ~Transcending Limitations, Jennifer Lauren

Let’s manifest the people, places, and things in your life and help reach the goals and aspirations of the heart.  Let us become our SOUL’S PURPOSE & SPIRIT’S JOY.

All my love and more from the universe of limitless supply…




Meditation – Can we shape our reality?

Lately, I have been wondering… what is truly important?  There are a lot of things we may value…maybe it is our career, our family, our life purpose, and how we add something precious to this world.  Or maybe for some of us it is just about living day to day and moment to moment because that is just where we are right now.  Sometimes life can be exciting and full of incredible moments of elation and triumph and sometimes life can seem painful and sorrowful. 

There are moments in our lives when all we can do is get through to the next day and there are times when we never want the day to end because things are going that well.  Still further, sometimes striving to have a balance between the two polarities can be our greatest challenge.   

The older I get, the more I realize there is so much that I really don’t understand, nor do I have answers.  So many of us go through so many different shades of color in our lives that it is difficult to determine the answers of how to live our best life.  For everyone it is different.  What I do know for sure is that there are unlimited ways to perceive life and in this web of existence we have choices. 

Sometimes, our choices seem limited and sometimes we are elated with the unlimited possibilities. What I have come to understand is that as we look at life and the many ways to experience ourselves it becomes critical to create a partnership with our minds. 

I realized this mostly when my children were young.  Depending on what was happening in their lives I always wanted to help make something better.  I always tried to make the best of experiences and what we were given being there for them in every way I could.  Sometimes, my efforts paid off and my children thrived and other times no matter what I did or how I framed the experience it was bound to work out less than I had anticipated.  And when things didn’t work out, I tended to blame myself or something else.  Eventually, I realized that neither of these two ways of looking at the world was helpful. 

I had an inkling within me that what I was doing was not very helpful, but I did not know how to help this pattern.  Until one day, I just stumbled on an advertisement for meditation.  The people meditating looked happy.  They looked peaceful and content.  Something I wanted for myself but was ever so difficult to attain. So, I decided to try it out. 

I’ll never forget the first time I attempted to meditate.  I thought I was supposed to sit and just be… hoping that by staying quiet, sitting quietly, and through shear concentration I could train myself to make my thoughts leave and my mind.  Boy was I wrong.  I found the opposite to be true.  My thoughts became louder, the ‘to do’ list became longer, and the unfinished things that raced in my psyche just went on and on and on… like a freight train that just keeps going and going and going.  It was relentless and irritatingly frustrating to say the least. 

I gave up many times.  Many, many times.  I just didn’t understand why people could speak about meditation and how it helped them so much.  I felt like such a failure.  It just made things worse for me.  Then I enrolled in a meditation class.  I walked into a studio and paid them cash that day hoping that if I did what they told me it would all just go away, and I would get the answers.  And it helped, it didn’t cure my mindless activity, but it did help me begin to understand what was happening.  I discovered how our thoughts are an endless culmination of three aspects of the mind.  The negative, neutral, and positive mind.  That we have a negative mind; useful in protection and alerting us to something that is wrong or a threat.  We have a positive mind; useful in expanding a thought into possibilities instead of contrasting it into limitation and lastly, we have a neutral mind; helpful in deciphering the positive and the negative in relation to where we are now and what we choose our experience to become.  As we develop ourselves through meditation, we become aware of our positive and negative mind eventually finding the neutrality of it all by becoming aware of what we have been doing.  Then we realize we have choices on how we would like to shape our lives within our current states of awareness. 

Then I learned about breath work.  Practicing control of the breath through meditation.  As I learned and practiced more, I found that breath work controlled our life force.  The more I learned about breathing and how to control the different states of my breath the more I could control the different states of awareness within my mind.  Thus, I could choose the expansiveness of my energy.  Through breath awareness I could stimulate and enhance my energy thus adding more control to my thoughts, my energy, my reality. 

Then I found mudras and mantras.  I discovered that mantras are words or phrases that can be repeated aloud or to oneself with the rhythm of the breath, and mudras are the use of the hands to focus the brain.  I was skeptical at first, and the more I practiced I was surprised at how much better I felt, the lasting effects of the practices and the simplicity of it all.  I began to understand the helpfulness of my negative and positive minds and the innate ability of my neutral mind to intuitively focus.  I was amazed at how a simple practice of strengthening the breath, using mudras to stimulate the brain, and mantras creating a rhythm of internal wisdom within my body could create lasting effects.  I was hooked, to say the least.

Limiting beliefs haunting me for ages began to melt away, my energy returned, and my outlook on life improved.  What did I learn?  Life could change.  I had some sort of control and that I could shape my reality.  And I never needed to censor my thoughts, I needed to find the right practice for me. 

If you are innately curious… I invite you to try a meditation class or practice at some point in your life.  I just happen to teach a couple at Trillium Yoga in Antioch, periodically.  Here are some dates… 5:45-6:45pm on 4/24, 5/8, & 5/22. OR try the online zoom meditation Wednesdays at lunch time… all you have to do is sign up at eventbrite here. I hope to see you soon!

Living a life full of HEART FULL purpose…

Lately, I’ve been running through all the scenarios in my head of how I could have, would have, should have done things differently in the past. All the past experiences and decisions that I made that turned out the way they did and happened in the manner they happened.

Some were wonderful outcomes and aligned with my inner truth and some were decisions that I am not so proud about. It’s those decisions that never really turned out the way I had hoped that I live in regret. And I know that living in regret doesn’t really help us to move forward in a positive and uplifting manner. But I have to admit… like many of us… I’ve been doing this to myself again and again.

I approach these scenarios with my mind, and I tune into my heart that longed for a different outcome. I ask myself if there is anything I could have done differently, and I always see it as a, “Yes.” A resounding, “Yes.” Not the kind of ‘yes’ that wants to beat myself up with judgement but the kind of ‘yes’ that sees with new eyes now how there are so many roads to our destination before us that we get to pick and choose which journey we’d like to embark.

Do we want our road to be rocky, deserted, painful and full of regrets? Or do we want our road to be synchronized, effortless and free to fly and be me?

You see… I was thinking… pondering this idea and it occurred to me… every decision I ever made, every idea that ever came to me, and every detail of my life always came down to my internal questions from within…. The big one… the ultimate question that maybe we all struggle with from time to time…. What is my PURPOSE? Why am I here and what is my LIFE MISSION? Related all together… what is my Life Mission and how am I going to live my life through this life mission that I am realizing before me?

Every experience I have ever had, every failure, and every perceived success has come back to this internal question. Am I making decisions in line with my highest potential and highest purpose at the time that I make these decisions or am I experiencing a lower version of me that is covered in fear and doubt?

Well, once I broke that down and realized that… I began to understand… I mean truly understand why I do what I do and all the programs I have that really do work. It’s because, I just believe… I believe so much that anything is possible, and we have a beautiful world of all possibility that is reflected upon us based on our own beliefs and ideas about life that I only live what I completely believe in every moment, every hour, every day, and every year. Doing anything less just doesn’t work anymore. And deciding that I am leading my best life and helping anyone who wants to come along IS MY PURPOSE!

WOW…Does that feel good! The kind of good that we just want to SHOUT FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOP OUT TO THE GRAND CANYONS OF THE WORLD!


This is what I want for you TOO!

I have one question I live with daily…. “In all that I AM… Am I living, breathing, and walking my life mission and am I in alignment with this?”

Most times now I can say yes…and when I can’t answer with a resounding ‘yes’ I now know how to shift myself into that alignment, effortlessly.

And I guess… I just want everyone else to know this and feel this and be this as well. I just want the empowerment flame to be passed along form one person to the next and for all, everyone to feel as though they can express themselves to their highest version out into a world that WANTS to receive the beauty of their uniqueness shine through! I believe in this world… I believe it exists. I believe everyone has their version according to where they are and what they came to experience. I believe in you.


Is to take you there…

So… If you are innately curious on how to live the highest and best version of yourself according to what you internally know to be true and you want that revealed to yourself on your terms and to be lead guided and directed by someone and a group of people that wants to support and encourage you on this path…then…
