Healing tonight!

Thank you to our friends both human and canine who joined hubby and me in our walk through the woods yesterday (and dinner afterward). And a big thank you to mother nature who gave us such a beautiful day. As I hear the rain pouring outside today, I think I'll take some advice from my feline wise ones who have only gone out as far as the front porch today...and stay inside!
Tonight on Discovering Nature's Spirit radio show, we feature special guest, Michelle McCarthy, the owner of The Heart to Heart Healing Connection in Agawam, MA. Michelle will be discussing a variety of healing topics including Reiki, IET and the biomat! Show is from 7-8:00 pm. Call in number is 718-664-6906.

Felidae update

Back in August I sang the praises of a cat food called Felidae. (old felidae post) It had succeeded in keeping my cat, Midnight, free from uninary track infections. Recently we added their wet food to the dry food and bam! He got another infection. Somehow we were doing alright with just the dry which is ironic because the moisture is supposed to be better for him. So back to our vet prescribed Royal Canin Urinary SO for felines it is. What else can we do?!

Raven's World-46

Here's the answer to the question from last week's comments: Jette says that he is happy. He presents with floppy ears and lots of energy. He shows me he's chasing bunnies now and having fun. He wants you to remember to keep your thoughts positive! He says that the other animals are okay because they still interact with him. Sometimes they bring Jette's energy through to you.
Here's what Raven would like to share today:
"Gratitude is one of the highest vibrations to hold. Find it. Celebrate it. And watch your dreams come true!"

Not our children?...

Quite some time ago I received a message from Spirit that our children are not "our" children. From a spiritual perspective our children do not belong to us. Spirit says that parents are the vessels to bring forth new life to the Earth. That each child has its own soul, divine plan, purpose, and his/her own connection to Spirit from birth to death. Now those of us with children to care for understand that we need to attend to their needs and nurture them. And there are divinely orchestrated reasons why a child is matched up with certain parents. Spirit would like us to encourage the young ones to retain their own independent connection to Spirit and rely on their own guidance system as is appropriate. Lately, this message has been coming back through readings for clients. What can happen is that if a parent goes through or is going through a traumatic or difficult experience emotionally, sometimes the parent relies on the child for support. And sometimes this can become a pattern. And sometimes a child will not move out into the world to explore and share their own divine gifts because of a perceived need to continue to care for the parent. This can cause an imbalance in the energy and difficulty for everyone. Finding a solution at that point is not that easy either. If we look to nature for guidance, we know at some point we need to do the best we can to encourage the young birds to fly free.

A bear, oh my...

Yesterday on my way to work I almost hit a bear. I was driving around a corner and out of the woods comes a very large black bear at a good rate of speed. He (thank the goddess) hesitated when he saw my jeep. Turned and went back into the woods. phew! I noticed he had two tags already adorning his ears so apparently the dep has decided he has been trouble enough. It is not my first bear sighting. We have had them at our home before. We used to have a steel flag pole in the front yard and we hung a bird feeder on it. The bear that day bent the steel to get to the feed. And back when The Purple Rose was in Canton, we had a baby bear show up at the picnic table outside. Even got a pic of little yogi waiting for his picnic basket! Being the aware new ager that I am, when I got back home last night I asked the bear whether there was a message. A female bear stepped forward as if looking for her cubs. She got me wondering if when they relocate these bears whether they make sure they are not separating the mothers from their cubs.

Raven's World-45

Here's what Raven would like to share today:
"Many of you have heard of the threefold law. What you sow so shall you reap. But for those of you who are sowing well (sharing love, generosity...) you may be wondering why you're not exactly reaping same. There are other factors and laws in play. Some may not be as well known. Timing, divine plans, energy shifts are among the culprits, too. Remember the universe reads your vibration. So clean up your energy, shake off that negativity as we shake water off our coats, shed your old outmoded skin. Ask yourself what do you believe about yourself? That is your best source of power. Are you feeling worthy, forgiving/forgivable, loving/lovable...? Remember that hope is a healer. Allow in that bountiful harvest."

A gift

What a gift yesterday was! Warm and sunny...both together! After working for a bit, hubby, puppies and I went for a walk. There was laughter, fresh air, off leash happiness and even some swimming (puppies, not hubby & me). Raven was so tired she sat down right at the bottom of our driveway as if to say...okay now you all get me up to the house!
We have a great guest on Discovering Nature's Spirit radio show tonight! (7-8 pm EST). John Odlum, LMT, Master Medicinal Aromatherapist, and co-owner of The Essence of Being will be on sharing his knowledge about aromatherapy and the special essences he recommends! You can tune in live or catch all the shows in the archives.

We're only human...

I've had the opportunity to speak to a few different spiritual teachers. All going through their own challenges recently (myself included). This week I received an enewsletter from a very well known spiritual teacher who disclosed her own challenges, too. While I do not wish challenges upon anyone, I find it refreshing that even those among us who hold ourselves out as light workers are being honest. We don't always have the answers. Sometimes all the positive thinking and higher vibrations in the world wont stop life from happening to us. I cringe when it feels to me that a spiritual teacher is holding him/herself above the masses. For we are all one. Each with our own life lessons. I'm reminded of the curriculum of the Reiki Master course that I teach. Where we learn that Master means teacher. So a Reiki Master is simply a teacher of Reiki. Not a 'master' as in ascended to a level above anyone else. And I think once again about the recent passing of such a powerful healer to cancer. And part of me can't help but wonder why. Shouldn't the healer have been able to heal? But we cannot pretend to know the true path of another. And while we all have the capacity to touch spirit. We are still all human.

Wise little ones

This week a spiritual teacher shared this story:

mom: "How was your play date with Jill?"

daughter: "It was very sad, Jill's doll broke."

mom: "Did you help Jill fix her doll, honey?"

daughter: "No mommy, I helped her cry."

Raven's World-44

Here's what Raven would like to share today:
"Through the eyes of a child. Filled with wonder and hope. Where anything is possible. The sky is the limit. Each of you can choose to look at the world, yourself, your life that way. Don't let fear cloud your view."

Love and money

Over the years offering readings, love and money have been the two most common subjects that everyone wants to know about. Lately, however, I cannot help but notice the pain attached to these topics for so many clients. So many people in transition, in chaos, in places they never expected to find themselves. And yet the Angels are assuring everyone that it's okay. That everything is alright. Many are birthing through to a new better place. But the birth itself tends to be painful. Nurturing yourself back into your own connection with Spirit in whatever form that takes for you is the best way to ease through.

Calling all Empaths!

Yesterday I spent a wonderful day offering readings at a new age fair at Marinelli's in Burlington. It was an amazing community that gathered together. So good to see so many familiar faces and so many new, too. Because I am a sensitive and know myself pretty well at this point in my life, I knew enough to take some time to rest today. There's so much energy flowing through a healing fair like that anyway, plus all the readings I was blessed to do myself. So I pencil that recovery time right into my schedule now. Which leads oh so beautifully into our topic on Discovering Nature's Spirit this evening (7 pm est) which is Empathic Guidance. Empaths or sensitives are sensitive to the energies and emotions around them. Tonight we will discuss how to understand all of that better as well as how to take care of the flow of energy to lead a healthy & intuitive life! Readings for callers, too! (call in #718-664-6906)
