Dog Days of Summer - What I Learned on My Summer Vacation
As summer comes to a close, I like to take a few moments to look at the last couple of months to see what I learned -- where I still need to put energy, what's working and what's not working in my life, what I've been neglecting and what I need to discard entirely...kind of a "season review."

I have to say I am not the same person I was when summer began. We all grow as time passes. Even if it seems like baby steps, we are still learning and growing.

This summer was more than I bargained for on the learning and growing scale! I feel like my energy shifted, creating new pathways for teaching, and I've healed in ways I didn't even know needed healing. I also found so many new friends along the way...including a really cool new group of Akashic Record guides!

I wrote in last month's newsletter that I had a profound experience when I went to the L.A. area for a reunion. That launched a whole new direction of healing for me, and one that surprised me, to say the least.

As I have been working in the Akashic Records, my guides continue to introduce me to new ways of using the records, and more than that, heal with the records. During my L.A. trip, I found I had left so much of my soul behind. I was given clear instructions and the details on how to call those fragments of my childhood back to me and heal them completely and fully.

Amazed at this crazy integration, I asked the Record Keepers how to do this for others. They said, "Just wait...there's more."

While in Lily Dale in August, between teaching, speaking and connecting events, I was introduced to the concept of healing past lives and past traumas, so our present and future lives no longer have those wounds, or we don't respond to them the same old way.

This for me is huge. I returned from my trip with different energy - an upgrade, so to speak.

Like so many of you, I know I have had repeat patterns throughout my life, where the same wound gets sliced open over and over again. In working in my records, I have found that these are mostly from past lives where I did something, or there was an outcome to a situation or my life, and I have brought that forward into this life, still working on it, still trying to heal it or shift it.

Through this experience with my records, I have been taught a way to heal what happened at the point of origin, whether it be in this lifetime or a previous lifetime, so I can stop the pattern and move on with my soul development.

I want to be clear here. This does not mean you come to me and we solve all of life's ailments in one sitting. You will leave my office with homework and clear instructions on what you need to do to continue your healing. Some of these wounds are very deep, so expect some work will be involved, and possibly some outside assistance from trained therapists to help you integrate what you learn through the process. We are dealing with big stuff here, and we are not talking about quick fixes. For me, the healing did occur quickly and I was able to integrate the fragments, but your experience may be different.

Some areas for which this Akashic Records session can help are:
Feelings of lack
No self worth
Unexplained fears
The same things happen over and over to you
Feelings of abandonment
Physical ailments
Overreactions to people or situations
Feeling stuck in life
Lack of feeling nurtured
Lack of feeling strong
Allowing people to take advantage of you
Relationship issues - attracting the same kind of partner, feeling misunderstood by family
And that's just scratching the surface!

We use intention, meditation, Holy Fire II Reiki and your Akashic Records for this, so it's important for you to want to change whatever it is. Healing begins with you...I am just the facilitator of the process.

If this speaks to you, click the button below for more information. I would love to have the opportunity to assist you and your soul (one in the same!) to learn more about your journey here and the incredible heights you are meant to soar!

I feel so blessed to be a part of the Lily Dale Assembly Summer Program! I was able to spend a week on the grounds doing different events and catching up with good friends. Lily Dale is a very special place...where someone like me feels normal for a change.

Next year's summer program will be wonderful! I have submitted to do two workshops. They are still in the approval process so I won't know until later this year if they are accepted. In addition to these, I have been asked to teach a class and speak at a couple of the Spiritualist churches in the area. I also hope to do another event in Edinboro, PA during the time I am there.

All this to say I would love to have you join me next summer! I will be working on some group events for those who decide to come, like exclusive Connecting Parties, group readings and special training!

I will know more later this year regarding the timing. In the meantime, tune into it and see if you would like to be part of the fun! We will have a blast!

If you think you'd like to join us next summer (of course, given the dates are convenient), let me know!

Already looking forward to next summer's program at Lily Dale!
Holiday Connecting Parties
Plan Ahead for Your Party!
I am grateful to be busy, but also realize I need to do a bit better with my time management. Hence, the very early reminder to book your Connecting Party sooner rather than later to make sure we can accommodate the day and time you would like!
The holidays can be difficult for many who are missing their loved ones. For all I have written in this newsletter about other services and training, the reason I do what I do is to help others understand where their loved ones are, and how close they are to us, especially now.

During a Connecting Party, we receive messages from your loved ones, get questions answered, and feel their presence, so making it through the holidays is just a little easier. We hear from pets also who have traveled to the rainbow bridge, so if you need to reconnect with your four-legged loved one, we can do that, too.

Click the button below to learn more about parties and how to get one scheduled for you and your family and friends! Your loved ones who have passed love a party, so we will be sure to invite them, too!
Accessing Your Akashic Records - Two Classes for Everyone!
Training to Access Your Records, No Matter Where You Live!
Akasha means “ether” in Sanskrit, and the Akashic Records, or “Book of Life” is the place in energetic terms where every deed, word, thought, feeling, intention and action from any life — past, present, and possible future – is stored. As that implies, we have the ability to enter our records and change our futures!
In this class you will learn:
  • How to access your own Akashic Records using meditation, prayer and Reiki
  • What questions can be answered and how to phrase questions
  • How to ask permission to access your records
  • How to set intention for the information you want to receive

Requirement: In this class, we use a symbol taught in Reiki II to access the records. If you are already a Reiki II Practitioner, you are good to go! If you are not Reiki II attuned, there will be a healing attunement a half hour prior to the class for those who need it. Even if you are Reiki II attuned, you are welcome to come for the healing attunement. It is included in the cost.

Next Classes:

Northern Colorado
Date: Sunday, October 7th
Where: Loveland, CO
Cost: $111 ($25 deposit required to hold spot)

Web Workshop – Phone or Computer Accessible

I always wondered where that term originated. Luckily, Wikipedia has the answer:

"The dog days or dog days of summer are the hot, sultry days of summer. They were historically the period following the heliacal rising of the star system Sirius, which Greek and Roman astrology connected with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs, and bad luck. They are now taken to be the hottest, most uncomfortable part of summer in the Northern Hemisphere."

Not quite as cute as the dogs in the picture, but I thought it was amusing. There's your trivia tidbit for the month!
A special treat indeed! The psychics of the Psychic Center of Northern Colorado will be doing readings at the Fall Holistic Fair on Saturday, September 15th and Sunday, September 16th. We are excited to bring you TWO FOR ONE readings! This means you get TWO PSYCHICS for your reading...two angles for the questions you may have.

Did you know I am a Young Living Essential Oils Distributor?
Using Essential Oils with Connecting and Meditation
I have been using essential oils for years, Young Living oils for about 10 years now. I resonate with the energy of the YL oils, and I trust the sourcing.
My guides, including J.T., have approved their use for me and my family. This doesn't mean if you are using different oils that they are not right for you. I am a firm believer that there are many truths on this planet, and if you resonate with a different brand, please continue to use those! If, though, you would like to give some Young Living Essential Oil Blends a try, click below for a cheat sheet I created to give you an idea of how I use some of these blends in my meditation and connecting work. They are great for clearing energy, and allowing your body to relax while your soul reaches for the heavens. They are also great for healing your body, stress relief, bruises, sore muscles, immune boosting, emotional support, and more.

I know how important essential oils are in my life, so it's time for me to share what I have learned.

Please let me know if you have any questions about essential oils. I'd be happy to help you connect more clearly and effectively!

Stay tuned for Essential Oil Info Nights, too!
Upcoming Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki Classes!
Introducing Usui/Holy Fire II
I am very excited to announce that later this month I will be an Usui/Holy Fire II Master Teacher, and able to teach Usui/Holy Fire II. My Reiki classes will be converted to the Usui/Holy Fire II manuals and instructions as of the next scheduled Reiki class.
What does this mean for you?

Holy Fire II is considered an upgraded version of Usui Reiki. It uses a different Master teacher symbol (Reiki I, II and Master symbol stay the same) and a different process for students to be initiated for Reiki. I consider it an amped up version of Reiki.

I received the Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki I Certification quite some time ago and have been using it for my healing sessions. My Reiki energy did intensify with this training. I have been waiting for the right time (and my guide's approval) to do the Master Teacher certification, and the time is now!

There are also some slightly different classifications for levels:

Reiki I is now Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki I (or Level 1)
Reiki II is now Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki II (or Level 2)
Reiki Master/ART is now Usui/Holy Fire II Advanced Reiki Training (ART)
Reiki Master Teacher is now Usui/Holy Fire II Master Teacher

If you have already been taking classes with me, continue with the next level as you ordinarily would. There is no need to retake any classes.

If you are a Reiki Master (not Master Teacher), and you do not plan to become a teacher, I have a special class to bring you to Holy Fire II. I will give you a Holy Fire II placement so you can access that energy. Email me if you are interested.

For current Reiki Master Teachers, there is a special training for you to learn and teach Holy Fire II. Here's the info for that.

If you are happy with the Usui Reiki, you do not need to upgrade to Holy Fire II. This is only if you are called to do so or it resonates with you.

Here is the schedule for upcoming Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki classes:

Saturday, September 29th 1pm
Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki II
Loveland, CO

Saturday, October 13th 1pm
Usui/Holy Fire II Advanced Reiki Training - Level 3
Loveland, CO

Finally...Be Good to One Another
Please remember as you are making your way through your life that everyone else is doing the same thing. We are all connected, we are all souls who have come to experience this very unique place, to learn about ourselves, to learn about love, and to heal from past wounds.

Think twice before criticizing your fellow souls for how they are doing this life thing. We really have no idea what others have experienced or have had to overcome to get to the point where they are right in this moment.

That goes for how you treat yourself, too. Sometimes we are so much harder on ourselves than others would ever be. Release yourself from judgment, and say "I'm working on this life thing, and in the end, I will get it!"

Namaste and Many Blessings to all of you!
