The world is full of energy – flowing, radiating, transforming. When you can tap into that energy and understand its many states, new possibilities open up to you….
On December 18th from 2-4 p.m., I’ll be teaching a class on Energetic Dowsing at Talisman in Monroe , Ct.
Take a break from shopping and decking those halls to come learn to use various tools (including your own body) and techniques for dowsing to understand the energy fields around you;  detect and clear “stuck” energy; find lost items; answer questions; and engage in other interesting and useful activities. This class is for all experience levels.
Sounds like the right class for you? Contact Talisman at 203-261-0047 or www.talismanct.com for more information or to book your place in this class
Give yourself a gift that will make your life better.
Hope to see you there

How’s your holiday preparations going?  

 No matter which spiritual path one follows, with everything that folks try to accomplish during the holidays, it’s not surprising if folks feel overwhelmed, cranky or downright “bah -humbug” at points. Even if we’re working hard at making merry, we all can use a break or two during the holiday season

 Let me make you an early holiday gift of one…

(It’s a gift that keeps giving…)

The next time you’re feeling anxious, angry, overwhelmed or down, instead of suffering, try this:

Take a deep breath, and

Look up at the ceiling.

(Repeat as needed…)

Give it a try now. Think of something that brings you down (income taxes, your least-favorite co-worker, cleaning out the fridge,…). Notice how it makes you feel,where it hits you in the body and in the spirit…

Then breath deep and look up. Feel the difference?

While it’s no substitute for Prozaac, most people find that when they do this, they feel more positive, centered and able to cope with whatever’s going on in their lives.

Why’s this work?

When we’re stressed, we breath in a short and shallow way. Breathing deeply and slowly triggers a mind-body connection saying “all is well”, and actually puts us in a better place, health and emotion-wise. Looking up seems to strengthen this reaction ( and when I’m facing challenges, I find looking up valuable for spiritual reasons as well…).

I like to think that we’re all hardwired with ways to change our beliefs, heal ourselves, find our centers and create our own best lives.

And, by the by, this technique is not just for the holidays, but works all year long. …

In any case, remember next time you’re feeling overwhelmed or down, breath deep and look up… and have a better day (or holiday).


PS  Just a thought- don’t do this in front of your bossy aunt  Margaret, your boss or any other person that is contributing to stress you’re feeling. They will surely take it the wrong way and this is the path to more stress…

It’s the holiday shopping season. And we run around looking for “just the right present”.


Well, on beyond bolstering the economy, a meaningful present can express the affection and respect you have for that person, and honor the relationship between you.

At that point, the most “right” present doesn’t depend on price tag or latest trends, or what all of the other kids are getting.

It’s something that speaks of the person themselves, and who they really are. Or speaks of the connection you have between you. Or both.

Just had a curious  idea…

Why not put yourself on your own list? Give yourself  a present to express affection and respect for yourself, and to honor being your own best friend.

So many of us spend so much time looking after others that we starve our own inner spirits.

So give yourself that scented shampoo that makes you feel happy when you use it. Or those art supplies that somehow don’t seem important enough to make the budget (eat ramen and buy paint!) Or the gift of time, to actually do what calls to you. Or permission to try and fail(which is an essential part of trying and succeeding…)

Put yourself on your own list.

And give yourself a bit of what you need to be extraordinary, follow your dreams and be happy….

Happy shopping

The basic idea behind warding is to create a permanent energetic barrier or barriers around the area that you wish to protect.
Step 1: Cleansing.
 It makes no sense to ward an area if all you do is lock the ” yucky stuff-technical term” inside with you. So the first thing you should do is cleanse the space. Use salt & water, smudging with sage, sweet grass or rosemary, or smudging with sound, combined with a physical cleaning.
