Do you meditate or have you tried meditation and found it challenging? Did you know meditation need not be complicated or even lengthy? Would you believe it is scientifically proven that regular meditation has the ability to positively improve the quality of life for individuals who practice it? There are also studies that show large groups of people meditating can diminish world aggression.
Simplistically stated, meditation is the practice of quieting the mind, focusing and being in the present moment. We are all familiar with the most common benefits, such as the ability to be relaxed, calm and focused. Did you know even a few minutes of meditation has many other benefits? Meditation helps develop positive emotions and increases your chi (life force energy). Where can you use these benefits? Many of us are in the work force and this may be the ideal place to use meditation. Taking a few minutes alone or developing focus on mundane tasks may change your outlook on your job in general or with projects you work on. You may be surprised to find you are more able to tackle the challenging parts of your job with greater success when regularly practicing these short periods of meditation. Did you know that Tai Chi is a meditation in motion?
· Breathing – Take slow deep breathes that extend your belly. This type of breathing can lower your blood pressure and increases oxygen flow to the brain which becomes more active and alert. Also helps in releasing toxins from the body.
· Focus on a point such as an Angel coin or gemstone. If work cannot stop, focus intently on each action you take. Consider each step in a work process. For instance, say to yourself, “I am putting paper into the copier. I am putting the document into the slot. I am making 20 copies.”
· Check with your company to see if they have a Meditation at Work Program.
· Join a Tai Chi or Yoga class where you will learn further meditation techniques and styles.
· Practice meditation regularly.

During the recent holiday season, many of us had time off work or adjusted work schedules so we could celebrate, see family, relax and have fun. My best friend who is 13 years old told me her time off school was all about staying up late, watching movies, family and getting completely out of her routine. I too seemed to drop my regular schedule of activities. I stopped working out in the morning, stayed up later, went out to eat more often and ate things I typically do not eat. Everything was off schedule and I had a lot of fun.
Now the holidays are over and most of us have returned to our routines of work, hectic schedules and life as it was before the holidays. Yet those who see me for Coaching sessions, Readings and Reiki, as well as several Reiki students have been asking the same question, “Now what do I do?” Some have made resolutions or stated the desire to experience change in their personal lives. I have plans for change in my own life so as I considered this question I asked, “What is the next step?”
When I look at my Coaching Sessions what am I really doing? I work together with others to bring accountability to their goals. I inspire and help light the fires of motivation. I make suggestions such as writing down exactly what is wanted, focusing and the action steps necessary. I offer suggestions and ideas which lead to connecting to others who might play a role in helping. For me personally, I take these same actions. I see what I want to create and I know there is someone special to help when the help is needed.
This year is about self realization – becoming the person you want to be. It is wise to recognize that we do not have do this alone. There are others to help us along the way. Personally, I refuse stay with the same routines I was in. There is someone out there that is going to help me with my visions of doing webinars and Blog Radio. I am going to do something different this year!

All the sudden so many people are asking me about December 12th and 21st, 2012. I have to admit that most people usually don’t understand what I do so it is interesting so many are coming to me at this time. All these inquiries relate to the question of what I think about the dates and the energy right now. It is almost as though they have always known I have strong intuitive feelings so they are turning to me to see what I feel. They see me as a positive, happy, energetic person and they want to feel better. What I really feel is all the fear from so many people. Releasing fear and living with joy in the moment may be a good idea. No matter what you believe, practice it – go to church, meditate, go out to nature; allow your Higher Self to guide you. So, what I am really saying is, put a smile on your face and BE in the moment.
December 12, 2012 and December 21, 2012 are dates we have been hearing about for decades. People have intuitively sensed the importance of these moments in time, and predicted everything under the Sun. Speculation has run the gamut including everything from the end of the world to the instant manifestation of Heaven on Earth. Many people have become aware of the shift of energy, vibration, and consciousness that has occurred or is presently occurring within all living things.
In Numerology these two dates are significant because they both equate to the number 9. The number 9 is an important number because it symbolizes an end of a cycle – any cycle. In Numerology the 9 is followed by 1 – the beginning of new cycles. With new beginnings on the horizon, I choose to make this a time for celebrating, appreciating and manifesting!

Most of us in our childhood were taught crying was a weakness. When I cried I heard statements like, “What is the matter with you?” and “I will give you something to cry about!” I learned it was best not to cry or to hide my tears. Many of us grew up this way and some remain solid as a rock, holding in emotions that might generate tears. When my spiritual journey began I found crying was a great way to release emotions which were stored up over the years. I learned crying was not a “bad thing” and I usually feel great after a good cry. Recently I did a little research and found there are several health benefits of tears.
Most of us know – from crying – that it reduces stress and calms emotions. Many of us also know crying is a way to rid the eyes of irritants while lubricating the eyes. Crying releases endorphins – those “feel good” hormones while also detoxifying, getting rid of hormones that are harmful to different parts of our body. Tears contain a chemical known as lysozyme, a natural anti-bacterial that works to keep infections from happening in the eyes. And because the tear ducts are connected to the inside of the nose, crying cleanses the nose of harmful bacteria and irritants. Crying is good for relationships when you cry in front of others. It allows you to be vulnerable in front of others and allows them to take care of you, creating emotional bonds.
Spiritually speaking, I see Lightworkers shed tears for many emotions such as joy, gratitude, grief, inner peace and enlightenment. Crying may also take place in Coaching Sessions and Readings. Remember, water can move mountains, one tear at a time!
Celebrating life is one of the joys we all have the ability to create. Sure, we all hook up on Facebook and we know, in general, how all our friends are doing. However, virtual contact and communication is no replacement for seeing, communicating and fellowshipping in person. Celebrating life with others is healthy! Recent studies show that social interaction boosts health and may be a positive factor in extending a life of health.
I will be celebrating 7 years of success as Lightworkers Gifts and Energy Healing Center. This celebration – a wondrous party – is my gift to you in appreciation for the love and support you have given so freely.
Seven years! The spiritual essence of the 7 is about reflection on the spiritual nature of things; investigating, analyzing and intuiting of inner wisdom. It is about the quest to discover the inner landscape of life in relationship to higher truths. This has been so true when I consider what Lightworkers Gifts brought to the community. It really states what my desires have been, not only for myself but for all those who came into my life during the last 7 years. I feel so blessed with gifts and talents which have a positive impact to those who enter my life!
Coming into the eighth year, I am excited about all the possibilities and opportunities! Spiritually, the number 8 is charged with the responsibility of working with integrity to build a world of the future, aligned with higher consciousness and serving all humankind. At the highest level, the 8 may be one of materializing wealth, following a path of power, achievement and success.
Your gift to me is to come and celebrate the success of Lightworkers Gifts! Come join us for healing, inspiration, presentations and drumming – come and have fun! Party Party!

If these resonate with you, write key words on a piece of paper and tape it to your mirror. First thing each morning, review your key words and practice them until they become a part of who you are because you are amazing!
Over the years I have had many psychic readings and, coming from a Catholic background, I questioned and analyzed everything to prove to myself the credibility of what I was experiencing. Understanding we are energy beings and our past, present and future is contained in the energy all around us, I use these readings as confirmation. For over six years I worked with many Mediums at my Wellness Center. One of the first Mediums offered to do a reading with me. I was fascinated at the accuracy of her information and how it impacted my life. For example, she told me about a piece of jewelry and described it in detail. My Grandma had given me a piece of jewelry that was exactly like that. It confirmed for me that she was really talking to my Grandma. It comforted me and helped me to heal from the grief I was feeling.
I have talked to several people who have received readings from Mediums and their experiences often catch them off guard. Several people experiencing grief for a loved one were comforted after these sessions. I began to realize there were benefits for everyone who set aside time for a session with a Medium. Many spoke of feeling a confirmation that life continues after we leave our human form. Others talked about being okay with the feelings of sadness and grief. The biggest benefit seemed to be a new desire – to heal from the pain of loss.
So, if you would like to experience a Medium reading, check out this Saturday!
