July & August Newsletter 2017: Transitions

Happy Summer!

I hope everyone is having a Wonderful Summer. For me it has been a HUGE revelation and Awakening. A full year of transitions that have ended a series of 3 with my mother’s passing June 25th 2017 (see blog below for more information). So for that reason I have missed my July 1st newsletter and will include as much of August to wrap up the summer edition.

Since this newsletter will include August I wanted to remind you that we will be having a Solar Eclipse on Aug 21st, some people in North America will have a Full Solar Eclipse and here in Toronto it will be a partial, but should be quite spectacular. Just be SAFE! We will also have Mercury Retrograde beginning August 12th and in Virgo, which Mercury rules which may make it pretty powerful. Unfortunately, we may not be able to take advantage of the typical great deals for new computers or tablets that occur in August.

I have a new Teleclass on Sunday July 30th at 3pm EDT that I hope you will join!

intuitivesoul-personal-meditationI’m offering a new service of personalized 10 minute meditations that will include a set of wishes that are channeled to inspire you or someone you love for the Holidays or any day! This is a wonderful way to begin or end your day!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: July & August 2017

The summer has been an interesting one so far!  I am not speaking about world events, but rather personal ones.  As a 1 year, we are all open to new beginnings, but who knew, that the 10 energy would have a stronger influence then the 1?  Ten is comprised of the numbers “1” and “0”, and before we can start anew, we must focus on the circle of spirit, the zero.  Before we can start anew, we must identify with the aspect of self that is not human, you can call it your Soul or you can call it your Spirit, they are similar, but they are also different.  Our Soul is our highest feminine influence of the goddess that lives within everyone.  Our spirit is our highest masculine influence of the Divine.  Our Soul is our light and our Spirit is what shines from that light.  Our Soul is a mystery to us, but our Spirit is what lives within us at our heart center.  When we forget to raise the vibration of our Spirit, it can easily fall prey to our ego.  Our ego is our lowest vibration of being human.  The part of us that forgets there is a divine plan, the part of us that tries to control what is happening in our lives, when in fact there is no control.

Why all this talk of ego, spirit, soul and control?  Well with the Sun moving into the sign of Leo, the ruler of the Sun, our heart chakra and our creative potential. That will become the focus of our realties in the next little while.

I am not just speaking of the Sun in Leo, keep in mind the path we are travelling this year as it is connected to the North and South Nodes is also the Leo / Aquarius, the path of Love!  Personal love vs. universal love.  Conditional love vs unconditional love.  Creation vs manifestation.   This is the balance we are all trying to integrate at this time.  With the Nodes in Leo / Aquarius we can experience eclipses in these signs as well, and guess what? They are taking place in the month of August.

Eclipses are points of emotional and psychological release!  The Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) typically being more emotional then the Solar Eclipse (New Moon).  The Lunar Eclipse will show you your lessons and what you need to release, and the Solar Eclipse will show you your gifts and how you can embrace them through releasing what no longer serves.  Both challenge us to tap into our raw feminine energies, to dive deep into our heart and all the lower chakra’s so that we can release what does not serve our Spirit.  Typically ego issues will be triggered, but there is hope, there is the rise of the Age of Light which activates our Souls higher frequencies so that we can BE all that we ARE!

Oh yah, I almost forgot, while we are trying to find balance in the eclipses, Mercury will station retrograde in August.  Nothing like feeling the lunar flow when the mind has retreated inwards!  Get ready, it is going to be very interesting!!!

In my monthly newsletter I will specifically tap into the eclipses in August, but for now, if you would like to understand July, you can check it out on my blog at Universalsky.com

Inspiration: Transitions fear from Change to Death

Transition can mean several different things. It can mean change; it can mean we are going through a different phase in our lives; or it can mean the ultimate transition, death. There seems to be a lot of fear around ‘transition’ and ‘change’ and maybe there is something in the word ‘transition’ that brings up our wounded child who is afraid of the unknown. For me the month of June brought with it the end of a cycle of ‘transitions’ over the past year and with the end of a cycle of ‘transitions’ perhaps I am seeing things more clearly and am more able to face other transitions yet to be without the same kind of anxiety I may have in the past. My brother was buried June 30th 2016; my beloved cat Jasper transitioned Oct 1st, 2016, and finally my mother transitioned and was buried June 28th 2017. They say bad luck comes in threes but for me these three transitions were symbolic of a deeper message around letting go. The power of three huge occurrences that happened in one year suggests to me that my life has been completely reborn into something new. My being reborn is like a transition toward freedom. I have an opportunity to see the world anew and look at what is most important to me and maybe to look at what I have been afraid to do and allow the Universe to show me something I can’t even imagine. THAT would be most important to me, that act of just allowing myself to change how I look at the world and that would help bring about change or transition in me that is freeing. So there really is no need to fear change.

I often wonder why we fear change and the unknown. If we believe our Soul is eternal then there is no change – like the transition we make from this world to another at what is called ‘death’ – that is ever really unknown. No major transition could possibly happen to us that we haven’t already experienced and therefore we should hardly fear it. Even death, albeit most difficult for the ones left behind, is just a transition to another state of BEing … and we get to go ‘home’. What could be better than that?

What I was finally able to heal by the end of this transitions episode was my abandonment issue, as central to my understanding with the most recent passing of my mother. And I wasn’t triggered in ways that I have been. So as my mother was preparing for her transition – that came on very quickly and surprisingly – I was able to hold space and quickly come to terms with her passing. I know she is free and with that I too have a greater freedom than I have ever had.

The journey began with my brother, who I was holding as he began his ascension. And I believe my sweet boy Jasper allowed me to dive deeper into this sacred wound and with the bringing of my adorable girl Angel I was finally able to see just how immortal our souls are; as she was the combination of the three most important beloved human carers (pets) in my life.

So then the question remains: what is it about change, transition, and the unknown that we fear so much? While preparing for my interview with Paul Selig – that had to be rescheduled because of all the time I spent with my mother as she was transitioning – I realized just how powerful the present moment is and I became very aware of some ‘truths’ that I may have known on a mental level but never truly felt on a BEing level.

As an aside I must say that I’m very much looking forward to this interview with Paul, an interview that has been rescheduled for Sept 12th. He is writing a very powerful trilogy. The Book of Mastery was released in 2016 and The Book of Truth: The Mastery Trilogy came out in mid-2017 and the third is to be released next year. I highly recommend any of his books but the first two of his new trilogy profoundly affected me. There are very powerful words and initiations that lie within these channeled words.

So back to my question: ‘what do we fear?’ I believe this is a question we must explore deeply within ourselves as it could be the answer – and a way – toward healing our sacred core wounds. To me the answers and healings occurred while reading and feeling Paul’s transformative words. These powerful and changing words affected me possibly more than even my personal trilogy of events that occurred this past year. I believe these events signaled an important phase in my life and maybe were the catalyst to personal healing but I also believe I have been being prepared for this particular change moment throughout my whole life. I feel reborn! Awakened in a way I have yet experienced. And it is through my continuing to explore all the different ways fear affects my life.

I also have the opportunity to work with some beautiful souls who are trying to understand their own core wounds. Through working with others I can often see more clearly what they need to do and it assists me to heal and BE clearer within my own triggers. The motto that I try to live by is: ‘Lead By Example’. When someone I know or work with is going through something I know on deeper levels it is something I am learning about myself and before recommending different options I ensure I live them first and foremost. This enables me to heal many of my issues that are more easily triggered. Some issues clear up even without direct experience. Still others become clearer because I now understand past experiences from a deeper place.

I believe the way to understand our issues the most is by detaching ourselves from the intensity or the emotional charge of the experience and the way we can do this is by reviewing our experiences. “Remembering the Light Within” is another incredible book from the Hulnick’s who I interviewed last month. The book offered some excellent thoughts that can help you if you are open to seeing things from a different perspective such as:

  • Our spiritual curriculum is to heal our unresolved issues;
  • Unresolved issues are anything that disturbs our Peace;
  • Unresolved issues are not bad; they’re simply part of our Spiritual Curriculum;
  • Unresolved issues are blessings, as they are opportunities for Healing and Awakening;
  • The work of Healing, or resolving unresolved issues, is spiritual work and is a major aspect of what Spiritual Awakening is all about; and
  • Observing Both our Inner and Outer Choices as we are the only one who can choose our attitude toward how we relate with ourselves, others, and the situations and circumstances in our life.
  • Will it be judging or accepting, criticizing or prizing? This last question is very important. Can we come from a place of unconditional love, acceptance and compassion towards ourselves and others?

The universe and our eternal Soul offer us infinite opportunities to heal our unresolved issues. If we don’t heal an issue it will be repeated until we can – even if it takes several lifetimes. This is the beauty of this physical reality. However, we must be open to fully embracing these teachings and pursuing the only true goals each life holds, to awaken to the present moment, acknowledge our choices of fear over love and know we are in charge of our story to truly heal and change our perception of our experiences: simple but not easy. And yet I feel I have overcome some of my deepest sacred wounds in my own trilogy of transitions that have taken place around me over the past year. The answer to understanding the ongoing transitions that seem to constantly flow around us lies within and can be revealed by the continuous pursuit of our Awakening. Walk with me (or run since everything seems to be at warp speed) as we take this path together.

May Newsletter 2017: Happiness – Conscious Relationships

Happy Victoria & Memorial Day!

What was last month like for you? Because last week I really didn’t know where I wanted to go with my Blog nor my interview on Apr 25th with Tom Campbell. However I had a few areas that were showing up within my readings with different authors who’s interviews are coming up (like Paul Selig – should be a fabulous interview in June) and from my interactions with some of my followers. So I had my interview with Tom and things really flowed during our interview around ‘happiness’ and ‘conscious relationships’.

April felt like a strange month of confusing energies, which is why I asked. However, near the new moon on the 26th of April things seemed to shift. A gentler energy emerged and what seemed like confusing energies changed into expansive and opening energy. May feels like a new beginning and both Canada and the US have celebrations this month (albeit different weekends) that usually mark the beginning of Summer! Let’s learn to Play more this year and enJOY the gentler and expansive energies available to us.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: April 2017

As we enter into May, Mercury is still retrograde!  Everyone may still be feeling the intensity of miss-communication and computer issues, but hopefully that will not last long.  Mercury will station direct on May 3rd at 24 degrees of Aries 15 minutes.  This direct motion is bringing us to the revelation of new possibilities.  The key is to be open and infuse faith into all that is beginning a new for you.  Mercury’s post shadow period ends on May 21st.  During this time, we are given the opportunity to fully alight with our highest aspirations and our personal values and beliefs.

The Full Moon in Scorpio takes place on May 10th.  The Scorpio moons are often viewed as release moons; which can be rather emotional for some people.  We need to release or clear what is no longer serving us.  This particular one is asking you to clear what is stopping you from attaining inner freedom.  One may discover that others may not agree with your particular decisions.  But at this time, one must assert their own values, no matter what the cost.  (Keep in mind, intention is key).  We are speaking to the values of the individual as it speaks to their personal values and beliefs that bring them to the place of proving their individual nature.

Mars, (Scorpios ruling planet) will square Neptune on May 11th.  This may create some indecisiveness or confusion around what you are honouring within the self.  This aspect can also leave you feeling like you have a lack of energy or you may feel physically weak and tired.

As we approach May 17th, we can not take on the responsibilities of others.  It is up to each individual to do what they need to do for themselves.  You may feel challenged with setting boundaries which can ultimately lead you to letting go of ideas of the past so that you can adopt a new belief system.  Again, be open as you walk what may feel like a circular path to valour.

On May 19th, Saturn trine Uranus stimulates a sense of new excitement.  You are still required to infuse responsibility as the new and exciting concepts appear.  Breakthroughs are imminent, so get ready to move in new directions as you embrace the opportunity to delve into exciting new actives.

On May 25th, the New Moon takes place in the sign of Gemini.  It has us springing into action!  Taking action is completely up to you, but that is what it is inspiring us to do.  It is suggested that we tap into some repressed feelings and root emotions.  The purpose is to understand that we can reach beyond any established forms or ways of BEing.

Also on that day, just before the New Moon Jupiter trine Neptune allows you to feel at one with the world.  BEing in a place of peace and tranquility is possible if you can tap into your creativity.  Detachment is a key component in attaining the desired alignment with your authentic inner nature which allows you to actively participate in peak experiences.

May 29th, Mars opposite Saturn is asking you to access your self-control as you focus on of resolutions to what challenges you at this time.

Inspire to be the best you can BE during this month of clarity and action, as you continue to connect and align with your divine nature!  enJOY!!!

Inspiration: Happiness – Consciousness of Relationships

The issues that were arising were around our relationships and how we continue to justify our fears by looking at the ‘other’ instead of understanding that we are responsible for everything that happens in our lives. We continue to worry, get angry, and justify our reactions because of someone else. It isn’t easy to authentically see that our ‘unhappiness’ is not because of someone else but because we have a fear that makes us feel insecure, unheard, insignificant or abandoned. It appears clear to us that these people or things that happen are why we are unhappy and we don’t remember that every event is really an opportunity for our own growth. Every time we have a negative response (or even a positive response) we are adding to our story of our lives. We are creating the definition that we have actualized as our identity. We want to blame our unhappiness on someone or something or believe we will only be happy when we can ensure that everyone else is doing what we need them to do. So we justify feeling unhappy because someone or thing has made us unhappy.

If we knew that the Larger Consciousness System (Tom’s wording for Higher Consciousness) is here to help us to grow. If we knew that everything has a purpose in our lives to help us grow towards ‘love’ then is it possible to allow all of these experiences to be ‘seen’ as opportunities to let go of our fears? And these experiences are also to acknowledge that no matter what happens the other person is truly being the ‘best’ they can BE and that they are not doing something to hurt us or create anxiety or pain in our lives. Rather it is our own perceptions that create the pain and unhappiness in our lives. It is our own Ego that needs to justify these experiences because it needs to be ‘right’ instead of happy.

We are ‘infinite Divine Beings’ that are having a human experience to Evolve our Consciousness towards Love. We grow when we are ‘relating with others’ and it is only when we can let go of this need to blame or accept the ‘story’ of our lives as a victim can we truly step out of our patterns of fear being perceived by us. If we truly desire to ‘grow up’ and get out of the pain and unhappiness we have established as who we are then we have to begin accepting unconditionally that the pain and unhappiness isn’t coming from events or others but from our own fears within; our own beliefs and our own story of who we believe we are!

We have just forgotten who we are. We aren’t our fears. We aren’t this ego identity that we ‘believe’ is who we are. We are not just a child, parent, spouse, an education or an occupation etc. that we think about when someone asks us who we are or what we do. We are a ‘Divine Being’ who has chosen to incarnate as a Human Being to evolve towards love. We are not separate yet we have individuated consciousness to ‘Remember’ who we are and to choose to expand our consciousness towards unconditional acceptance and love of Self and ‘others’. We are more than our experiences and our fears.

Our relationships are our mirrors to understand our own consciousness. We are allowing our stories to trigger and dictate our unhappiness and add this unhappiness to our story with all the “what’s and why’s” that the ‘other’ person does to hurt us, instead of working on changing OUR story and changing our fears that create our story and unhappiness.

Instead we focus on each situation as a separate event that continues to justify our ‘story’: reappearing as a pattern. This belief we hold about who we are is just a fabrication that confirms our fears. Let me give an example: a person we have a relationship with says something that triggers us, out of their own fear they say something that makes us believe they are betraying us, abandoning us or alluding to the fact that we aren’t significant enough to… (you fill in the blank). It may be a fear that someone isn’t being honest and upfront with you, or maybe someone is appearing aloof and distant, like they don’t care. The ‘mirror’ we are meant to understand is that this is ‘our’ fear and we haven’t shifted it if we can still justify BEing unhappy or blaming another. We instead just take this experience and add it to our ever increasing ‘story’ of who we believe we are.

So how does this relate to ‘Happiness’? Well, like everything in this life, we tend to focus on what we don’t want instead of BEing happy inside or allowing our Divine Essence to express itself, we are allowing our fears to continue to dictate our story; our unhappiness. We can’t seek ‘happiness’, it has to BEcome our intention to Evolve towards Love. It is only through our intention to grow that we will uncover that our ‘happiness’ has been here all along. We have the ‘choice’ to examine our fears and accept these fears as opportunities to mature and BEcome the Love that we already are. Our ‘happiness’ isn’t something that is ‘out’ there, but it is who we are as Divine Beings.

Learning through our relationships: having conscious experiences when our fears present themselves are the only way we can experience conscious relationships, experience Love and remember who we are. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to BE happy and have conscious relationships. I’m finding it increasingly difficult to NOT see the Divine within and experiencing more compassion and acceptance (even when I have epic failures) with mySelf. Let’s choose to initiate these changes by remembering who we are; Divine Beings having a human experience.

April Newsletter 2017: Understanding Our Choices

Happy Easter!

Spring is definitely here, although winter has tried to hold on a few times.  We have quite a few planets in Retrograde this month, fortunately Venus will go direct on the 15th, although it is not before Saturn on the 6th and Mercury on the 9th, which is added to Jupiter which doesn’t go direct until June 9th. So, be gentle especially for the first couple of weeks this month!

Spring is a time for New Beginnings and shedding the winter energy to move into Awakening and Newness. The day is getting longer, our energy is lighter and we all desire to shake off the winter (not that it has been all that bad of a winter) and ‘spring’ into new things. Whether that is clothing, relationships, work or home, we all want to do a ‘spring’ cleaning and make way for new inspiration and possibilities!

intuitivesoul-personal-meditationI’m offering a new service of personalized 10 minute meditations that will include a set of wishes that are channeled to inspire you or someone you love for the Holidays or any day! This is a wonderful way to begin or end your day!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: April 2017

We start April with Venus still being in Retrograde.  It has been an interesting retrograde cycle thus far.  Venus moved into Retrograde on March 4th at 13° of Aries.  On April 2nd, she shifts back into the sign of Pisces altering the dynamic of the energy before she stations direct on April 15 at 26° of Pisces.  This particular retrograde cycle may have triggered many fears, which may have manifested as anxiety or frustration.  When operating from a place of fear one is powerless.  However, the lesson of Venus in Aries is to own your power, and making choices from a place of power, not from a place of fear.  As she shifts into the sign of Pisces on April 2 the dynamic changes, for it is no longer about making a choice, it is about sitting with a choice that was made and reflecting on the outcome.

The reflection process continues as Saturn stations retrograde on April 6 at 27° of Sagittarius.  Saturn retrograde is stimulating restructuring.  What do you need to restructure in your life?  There is an opportunity to heal the structures in your life when Saturn squares Chiron on April 30.  There are many things that people may be focusing on restructuring or healing, but ultimately while in the sign of Sagittarius we are focusing on expressing our true self.  We are being asked to let go of emotional patterns which block us from being authentic.  Again, this aspect may stimulate a sense of introspection allowing one to ponder on past memories, relationships, or events that may have triggered pain in your life at some point in time.  Saturn will remain retrograde until August 25, 2017.  There is plenty of time to gain understanding into what you need to restructure your life.

On April 9, Mercury will station retrograde at 4° of Taurus, potentially showing us that nothing is permanent.  Again, we are being asked to turn inwards with our thought process.  One can activate internal questioning of personal values and beliefs.  The desire is to try and find a path to greater stability, security, or comfort.  But one must be open with their thought process.  Take the time to quiet the mind so that one can remember old ideas of worth that may have been forgotten, as they exist in the subconscious mind where the memories are stored.  Mercury will station direct on May 3 at 24° of Aries and as he does, one may be able to envision new possibilities.

Pluto, the powerful transformer will also station retrograde on April 20 at 19° Capricorn.  One will have the potential to look around and see what needs to be transformed within your their life.  It is easy to see what needs to transform in society, but it is usually more difficult to dive into the depths of your Soul and face its shadows.  Pluto will station direct on September 28 at 16° Capricorn and hopefully this retrograde cycle has given you the ability to release your inhibitions, to set yourself free and to express yourself beautifully.

On April 28, the North Node will shift into the sign of Leo, activating aspects of the self that each individual needs to tap into (over the course of the next year until November 7, 2018).  The North Node is the path that we are following, the path we are being asked to walk.  In the sign of Leo, one is being asked to express their individuality.  To follow their hearts desires.  We are moving through our fears before this energy transpires so that our fear can be released from the heart center.  Love and fear can not exist in the same place at once.  You are either in a space of love or you are in fear.  When we activate our hearts desire, ultimately it is better if you are focusing from a place of love.  If you activate your hearts desire while in a place of fear, you are not operating from the point of power.  One must strengthen their willpower, tap in to their enthusiastic nature, and emanate self-confidence while taking risks and having fun.  This is what the North Node in Leo will teach us over the next year.

In the month of April, acknowledge your fears, stand up to them with courage, restructure and align with your truth, heal the past, clear the mind, transform your perspective and stand in your power!  It may sound like a lot, but in truth, it is all connected to one state of BEing!

Inspiration: Understanding Our Choices

Understanding our choices is the topic I want to explore this month. This month has been filled with choices: some I found were sabotaging and others empowering. I filled my days during this Venus retrograde with new choices and becoming conscious of my sabotaging efforts as a result of those choices.

I have been preparing for my interview with the Hulnick’s on their new book “Remembering the Light Within” which has been very confirming of my work over the past few years and my work with this material brought up some of the key points I am working with in this article. These key points were further anchored through me and my clients in recent weeks.

How can we see that all the things that are apparently happening ‘out there’ are really just part of the ‘story’ we’ve created about ourselves and our situation? How can we see that all the ‘things’ out there are actually ‘neutral’ and we are the ones who choose to get upset with – or excited by – ourselves or others? And how do we see that we end up ‘judging’ ourselves or others from a place of EGO instead of the opportunity to come from a place of ‘acceptance’? It is always one or the other: judgment or acceptance! Unfortunately judgment seems to be ingrained in our behaviors, beliefs and actions and it is accepted that we judge ourselves or others because it is unconscious.

In their new book, “Remembering the Light Within” Dr’s Mary and Ron explain that the “thoughts you project and the story that you’ve created about yourself become a powerful attractor field that draws to you experiences that validate and thus reinforce your beliefs and your resulting story.” I’m going to give an example that will relate to this idea.

We have discussed in many blogs the concept of ‘our story’ and this story typically relates to one or more of our three basic core fears: fear of the unknown; fear of abandonment or separation; or fear of unworthiness. We often experience our core fears – and therefore stories – in our relationships. So someone leaves us or betrays us. This is our perception of what is happening which is a judgment. And this abandonment or betrayal happens because we have already established this story from our past experiences. So we are choosing to react judgmentally instead of seeing each event as neutral. We are justifying our reaction by saying something like “I’m unhappy because…”. It keeps the ‘story’ alive and then events are all perceived within the story. People do something and we are justifying what is happening as our story and core belief.

When someone leaves they aren’t leaving us. When something happens that feels like a betrayal it is because we have judged it through our experiences and story as a betrayal. Those people are just reacting from their own experiences and story; their own fears. Their issues very likely have nothing to do with us. But our ego can’t see it that way. We are too attached to our story and how we feel within the situation and we justify what is happening as what is happening to ‘us’.

Our choices come around recognizing that we are choosing to either add them to our story and judge the situation as ‘happening’ to us or … we are choosing love. And when we choose love this is when we can reframe our issues as blessings. We can take responsibility for everything that happens because it doesn’t happen ‘to us’ it is a neutral happening and we can know it has a Divine Purpose in our lives; that all of our struggles and challenges are opportunities for Blessings and healing.

A point that the Hulnick’s make is that “unresolved issues aren’t in the way; they are the way”. They offer us an opportunity to heal. How empowering is it to know that each struggle or challenge is helping us grow and heal? “Remembering the Light Within” like other great teachings suggests that these ‘challenges and opportunities’ will guide us to remember we are already whole and we just believe these things that are ‘happening’ to us show where we are ‘perceiving’ we are not whole but separate from Source.

When we can take responsibility for everything in our lives we move into a place of acceptance and we choose how we want to BE inside. We can choose to BE happy regardless of what is happening outside of us and know that when we want to blame or justify our reason for being unhappy that it is our own ‘stuff’ coming up as a gift for us to heal. Instead we often seek acknowledgement from others and share all of our problems in hopes to confirm our justification for being upset. We are allowing the outside to determine how we feel instead of choosing how we want to feel and letting that be how we respond to life.

Can you understand your choice in every moment is to choose Love, Compassion, and Acceptance that we are already Whole, Awake and connected to the Divine Source. We are a Soul having a human experience and our True Essence is LOVE!

Understanding Our Choices

Understanding our choices is the topic I want to explore this month. This month has been filled with choices: some I found were sabotaging and others empowering. I filled my days during this Venus retrograde with new choices and becoming conscious of my sabotaging efforts as a result of those choices.

I have been preparing for my interview with the Hulnick’s on their new book “Remembering the Light Within” which has been very confirming of my work over the past few years and my work with this material brought up some of the key points I am working with in this article. These key points were further anchored through me and my clients in recent weeks. Continue reading
