Find out what the angels want you to know this week.
As I sit down to write this week’s note, I am breathing a huge sigh of relief! If you recall last week’s message I was freaked out by a furry critter that found its way into my home! Well, I am now happy to report that almost as soon as he moved in, he was OUT! And since then, we have been free and clear of all signs of unwanted house guests. However, there’s a second part to this story that I haven’t shared with you yet.
After the pest management guy left last Tuesday afternoon, I was crouching down to thoroughly scour and sanitize my floors. As I stood up, my left knee partially locked. When I straightened it, I heard a loud POP and thought to myself. “That can’t be good!”
I didn’t feel any pain initially but by evening, the throbbing, swelling and compromised mobility began. Long story short, I tore the meniscus in my knee. And you know what? There’s only one thing sucks more than that. And that’s when you’re a RUNNER with a race coming up and you tear the meniscus in your knee!!!
I would like to say that I was all “roll with the punches” about this situation but the truth is,I was MAD! I kept asking, “Why me? Why NOW?!” I was completely baffled because running is like meditation to me. I kept wondering “why would the angels take something away from me that keeps me healthy, happy and motivated to do the work that I do?”
After stewing about this for a few days, I finally got the message “Just ask”. Well duh, it was so obvious that I can’t believe it took me so long to figure it out. So rather than getting bogged down in anger, or feeling sorry for myself, I asked my angels to give me some guidance on all of this.
It turns out, that when they want you to know something, they will send the message over and over. Sometimes though, we aren’t so great at listening so they have to get louder and louder. In my case, I was being pulled in many directions at once which was impacting my ability to fully focus on my path and purpose. So guess what? When you CAN’T do something, it sort of forces you to get good and clear on what you CAN do.
So while I cannot just lace up the shoes and hit the road for a run, I can use this opportunity to spend more time in meditation and prayer. Not only will I get better insights on ways I can be of service in this world but the time off from running will also allow me to put more into my work and wrap up some unfinished projects.
Next time you find yourself wondering “WHY ME?”, surrender to the process. Know that your angels have your best interests at heart and they are merely taking you in the direction you need to go in to fulfill your path and purpose. And if you need more clarify on what that is, just ask.
Until next time,
I have just returned from a magical two weeks on the island of Maui in Hawaii! For several weeks leading up to my trip I kept hearing from others who had been there about how Maui gets into your blood. So many people who visit, come back time and time again, if not eventually move there!
And now that I have been there myself, I can completely see why!! It’s not just that the scenery is lush, gorgeous and tropical. It’s not the sun, sand, surf or the friendly people but it’s the spirit of Aloha. You can FEEL IT!
The word “aloha” is used everywhere in Hawaii by locals and visitors alike but not everyone stops to really think about what it means. I want to share with you the magic and power of Aloha as explained so perfectly here by Serge Kahili King (copyright by Serge King 2003).
You may copy, share and post this document as often as you wish on condition that it not be sold. For a free copy in booklet form, email your name and postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Aloha Spirit is a well known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance for which the Hawaiian Islands are so famous. However, it also refers to a powerful way to resolve any problem, accomplish any goal, and to achieve any state of mind or body that you desire.
In the Hawaiian language, aloha stands for much more than just “hello” or “goodbye” or “love.” Its deeper meaning is “the joyful (oha) sharing (alo) of life energy (ha) in the present (alo).”
As you share this energy you become attuned to the Universal Power that the Hawaiians call mana. And the loving use of this incredible Power is the secret for attaining true health, happiness, prosperity and success.
The way to tune into this Power and have it work for you is so simple that you might be tempted to pass it off as being too easy to be true. Please don’t let yourself be fooled by appearances. Take the time to try it out.
This is the most powerful technique in the world, and although it is extremely simple it may not prove easy, because you must remember to do it and you have to do it a lot. It is a secret which has been given to humanity over and over again, and here it is once more in another form. The secret is this:
Bless everyone and everything that represents what you want!
That’s all there is to it. Anything that simple, however, does need some explanation.
To bless something means to give recognition or emphasis to a positive quality, characteristic or condition, with the intent that what is recognized or emphasized will increase, endure or come into being.
Blessing is effective in changing your life or getting what you want for three reasons: First of all, the positive focus of your mind stirs up the positive, creative force of the Power of the Universe. Secondly, it moves your own energy outward, allowing more of the Power to come through you. Thirdly, when you bless for the benefit of others instead of directly for yourself, you tend to bypass any subconscious fears about what you want for yourself, and also the very focus on the blessing acts to increase the same good in your life. What is so beautiful about this process is that the blessing you do for others helps them as well as you.
Blessing may be done with imagery or touch, but the most usual and easy way to do it is with words. The main kinds of verbal blessing are:
Admiration – This is the giving of compliments or praise to something good that you notice. E.g., “What a beautiful sunset; I like that flower; you’re such a wonderful person.”
Affirmation – This is a specific statement of blessing for increase or endurance. E.g., “I bless the beauty of this tree; blessed be the health of your body.”
Appreciation – This is an expression of gratitude that something good exists or has happened. E.g., “Thank you for helping me; I give thanks to the rain for nourishing the land.”
Anticipation – This is blessing for the future. E.g., “We’re going to have a great picnic; I bless your increased income; Thank you for my perfect mate; I wish you a happy journey; May the wind be always at your back.”
In order to gain the most benefit from blessing, you will have to give up or cut way down on the one thing that negates it: cursing. This doesn’t mean swearing or saying “bad” words. It refers to the opposite of blessing, namely criticizing instead of admiring; doubting instead of affirming; blaming instead of appreciating; and worrying instead of anticipating with trust. Whenever any of these are done they tend to cancel out some of the effects of blessing. So the more you curse the harder it will be and the longer it will take to get the good from a blessing. On the other hand, the more you bless the less harm any cursing will do.
Here, then, are some ideas for blessing various needs and desires. Apply them as often as you like, as much as you want.
Health – Bless healthy people, animals, and even plants; everything which is well made or well constructed; and everything that expresses abundant energy.
Happiness – Bless all that is good, or the good that is in all people and all things; all the signs of happiness that you see, hear or feel in people or animals; and all potentials for happiness that you notice around you.
Prosperity – Bless all the signs of prosperity in your environment, including everything that money helped to make or do; all the money that you have in any form; and all the money that circulates in the world.
Success – Bless all signs of achievement and completion (such as buildings, bridges, and sports events); all arrivals at destinations (of ships, planes, trains, cars and people); all signs of forward movement or persistence; and all signs of enjoyment or fun.
Confidence – Bless all signs of confidence in people and animals; all signs of strength in people, animals and objects (including steel and concrete); all signs of stability (like mountains and tall trees); and all signs of purposeful power (including big machines, power lines).
Love and Friendship – Bless all signs of caring and nurturing, compassion and support; all harmonious relationships in nature and architecture; everything that is connected to or gently touching something else; all signs of cooperation, as in games or work; and all signs of laughter and fun.
Inner Peace – Bless all signs of quietness, calmness, tranquility, and serenity (such as quiet water or still air); all distant views (horizons, stars, the moon); all signs of beauty of sight, sound or touch; clear colors and shapes; the details of natural or made objects.
Spiritual Growth – Bless all signs of growth, development and change in Nature; the transitions of dawn and twilight; the movement of sun, moon, planets and stars; the flight of birds in the sky; and the movement of wind and sea.
The previous ideas are for guidance if you are not used to blessing, but don’t be limited by them. Remember that any quality, characteristic or condition can be blessed (e.g., you can bless slender poles and slim animals to encourage weight loss), whether it has existed, presently exists, or exists so far in your imagination alone.
Personally I have used the power of blessing to heal my body, increase my income, develop many skills, create a deeply loving relationship with my wife and children, and to establish a worldwide network of peacemakers working with the aloha spirit. It’s because it has worked so well for me that I want to share it with you. Please share it with as many others as you can.
How to Enhance Your Power to Bless
There is a technique practiced in Hawaii which enhances your power to bless by increasing your personal energy. It is a simple way of breathing that is also used for grounding, centering, meditation and healing. It requires no special place or posture, and may be done while moving or still, busy or resting, with eyes open or closed. In Hawaiian the technique is called pikopiko because piko means both the crown of the head and the navel.
1. Become aware of your natural breathing (it might change on its own just because of your awareness, but that’s okay).
2. Locate the crown of your head and your navel by awareness and/or touch.
3. Now, as you inhale put your attention on the crown of your head; and as you exhale put your attention on your navel. Keep breathing this way for as long as you like.
4. When you feel relaxed, centered, and/or energized, begin imagining that you are surrounded with an invisible cloud of light or an electro-magnetic field, and that your breathing increases the energy of this cloud or field.
5. As you bless, imagine that the object of your blessing is surrounded with some of the same energy that surrounds you.
ALOHA WORKS – WORLDWIDE
I thought I had it all: two wonderful children, a loving husband, an attractive and comfortable home, financial security so I could stay at home and raise my kids, a lifestyle that included travel and little extras and the blessing of health for everyone in my family. And yet, there I was, sitting at my kitchen table one cold Calgary winter’s day with tears streaming down my face and wondering if my life had any meaning at all. How on earth did I get to this place?
I knew having children was not going to be a walk in the park. I am not that naive. Friends and relatives had all shared their stories of sleep deprivation, diaper explosions, sibling rivalry and the like but nobody ever, not even once, talked about what really HAPPENS when you have children. You become invisible.
We wear so many labels in life. We are someone’s ‘mom’, someone’s ‘wife’, maybe even someone’s ‘employee’ but have you asked yourself, “who am I”?
My crisis that day at the kitchen table was rooted in not knowing who I truly WAS. I felt so very blessed to be able to be at home with my children but yet I felt there was something MORE I was meant to do with my life. I easily said goodbye to my years in the public relations and marketing world of corporate Canada because it wasn’t who I was. In fact, I was so very happy to leave that all behind. Yet, in shedding that, it created space for something new to take root inside of me. That ‘something’ was the desire and drive to be of service to others. I knew I was meant to teach and help others, however not knowing how I was supposed to accomplish this, was what was eating me up inside.
Since then, I have talked to many women who went through similar situations. They were so disconnected from their true path and purpose in life, that they became numb, depressed, and even felt hopeless. As desperate as they were to find answers, their numbness made them literally incapable of connecting to their inner wisdom and guidance to show them the way.
Have you been here yourself?
It’s sad really, that humanity has gotten away from remembering that we all carry an internal GPS that guides us in the right direction. Some people call it an inner knowing, Divine guidance, intuition or our gut feelings. Whatever you call it, it’s all the same thing and it’s available to each and every one of us 24/7. But in our numbed out, overwhelmed, super stressed lives, we can’t see the forest for the trees. We wouldn’t recognize our guidance if it jumped up and bit us in the rear. In fact, that’s almost what it took for me to recognize and follow my own inner compass. Instead, I started seeing numbers. Well, the number 11 to be exact and 11:11 or 1:11 or 4:11, 6:11 etc. to be even more exact. Every time I happened to glance at a clock, or notice a license plate zoom by me, it was always the same…that number 11. I thought I was starting to lose my mind! I even asked my hubby if he was noticing this too and he looked at me like I had three heads!
And here’s where the story gets even stranger. While this was happening to ME, thousands of miles across the country it was also happening to my MOM! One day, while speaking with her on the phone, she said she had to figure out why she was seeing 11s all the time. Well you can imagine that the hair on the back of my neck stood up and I eagerly shared my story too!
Long story short, it was the magic number 11 that got my attention and started me on the road to discovering myself, my TRUE self. Yet, more importantly, it taught me how to tune into my inner guidance and find my true path and purpose. Today, I use my inner compass all the time and I have finally fulfilled my burning desire to be of service to others.
As an Angel Therapy Practitioner® I get to help others who are wearing the shoes I once wore. Nothing brings me more happiness than when I teach those who feel disconnected from their path and purpose in life how to recognize, and rely on, their inner guidance so they can move forward again with clarity, confidence and enthusiasm.

See you on the call!
Frustrated? Annoyed? Ready to give up on this whole “talking to the angels thing?”
STOP! WAIT! You are not alone in your frustration. One of the most common complaints I hear from my clients is that they often ask their angels for signs and then don’t see anything!
It’s like the episode of Seinfeld where Kramer sets up his phone as the movie information line.
He answers the phone saying, “Hello! Welcome to Movie Phone! If you know the name of the movie you’d like to see, press 1. Then he says, “using your touch tone keypad, please enter the first 3 letters of the movie title now. To which he then says, “You’ve selected??? Agent Zero??? If that’s correct, press 1.” Of course he has no way to know what the caller on the other end (in this case George Kostanza) has entered into the keypad. George is all confused wondering what the heck is going on. And finally Kramer says, “Why don’t you just TELL me the name of the movie you have selected.”
So to all of you who have shouted, cursed and screamed at your angels, “Why don’t you just TELL me what the heck I’m supposed to know!”you are not alone.
When you don’t receive a sign (after asking for one ever so politely) it sets off a whole chain reaction of thoughts in your mind like “Maybe I am not asking the right way. Do I need to ask differently since I am not getting an answer? Should I be looking for subtle things instead of expecting something to hit me over the head? Do I HAVE any angels after all? Are they busy working on something else so they haven’t gotten around to giving me my sign yet? Maybe that Ramona chick that I’ve been listening to all these months is out of her mind….etc. etc. etc.
So slow down, BREATHE and just relax because I am here to help!

I remember the day my running journey began. I was browsing the aisles at my favourite bookstore when, as if by magic, I turned my head almost completely around. There, on display, was the book “The Beginning Runners Handbook”. I picked it up, leafed through it, and noticed that it contained a 13-week walk/run program to transition someone like me (who had never been athletic EVER) to someone who could run 10 km or 1 hour continuously. Something about this program just FELT right.
Without giving it much thought, I found myself buying this book and embarking on the beginner program. Today, many years later, I have several half marathons and shorter distance races under my belt. When I tell people I’m a long distance runner they comment, “oh you must have always been athletic.” To which I chuckle and think. “OH, if they could have only seen me as a kid!” Pudgy, pigtails and usually with my head in a book — not exactly the picture of athleticism, is it? So to look at where I am today, compared to where I have come from, is pretty amazing.
For me, running is like meditation. It brings me a greater awareness of my body, and I get the BEST messages from my angels while I am running because my mind is clear. In fact, I have seriously considered taking my hand-held recorder with me because it’s tricky getting a great message an hour into a run only to realize I have to try to remember it all the way back to the car and then hope that I have something there to write it down on!
I realize I NEVER would have been able to experience the joy I have in my life now from running if I had not trusted the guidance that pointed me in the direction of the book that day in the bookstore.

I remember it like it happened to me yesterday.
It was June 1999. My husband and I were on a camping safari in Botswana and Zimbabwe in Africa. This particular night, I awoke to the sound of an animal padding around the campsite. We had been told that lions had frequented this site before and instantly I imagined the pride moving in. Lying in my sleeping bag, inside the canvas tent I shared with my husband, I listened intently to the movements coming from only a few feet away. Something walked behind our tent, rounded the corner and stopped only inches from where I laid. My right arm was against the tent wall and suddenly I felt something “pawing” against it in an attempt to figure out what I was. My heart was beating so fiercely I felt as if it would burst from my chest! I tried desperately to quietly control my breathing which was now racing so fast I thought I would hyperventilate. After a few minutes, the animal moved away and I quickly moved away from the tent wall. But the animal returned. This time, it laid down beside me and, as the tent wall gently pushed inward along my leg, I could feel that it was the size of a very large dog. All that separated me from this beast, was a layer of canvas.
The fear I felt was so intense that it almost drove me to burst out of the tent running as fast as I could. And then, it happened.
I heard a man’s voice speak to me in my right ear. In an authoritative tone he told me “lie still”. And in that moment, all my fear and anxiety melted away. I felt cocooned in a deep and warm embrace knowing that I would be safe. To this day, I am in awe at how quickly my body went from frenzy to complete and total calm. It happened instantly.
I laid there wide awake for what seemed like an eternity. I stared out the window of the tent into the night sky looking for signs that morning was near. And sometime, while it was still dark, the animal left. Not long after, my husband woke and I whispered to him that an animal was outside. Then we heard it – the unmistakeable call of the leopard. It was deep and throaty, like the sound of sawing wood.
As the first rays of light began to warm the dark night sky, our guides awoke. I quickly emerged from our tent to tell them what had happened to me and as soon as it was light enough, they examined the area around our tent and found the leopard’s distinctive tracks.
I have no doubt that it was an angel who visited me that night. He wrapped me in his loving wings and protected me.
Little did I know, at the time, that this was just the beginning of my wonderful relationship with my angels. Today, I am here to connect you to YOUR angels so that you may know the many blessings and messages that they are waiting patiently to bestow upon you.
In love and light,

I’ve often been asked, “what is it like to do what you do?”
The truth is, my life’s probably pretty much like yours. Although I have appointments where I’m either conducting Angel Therapy sessions or helping people heal through Reiki, I also have to go grocery shopping, make dinner for my family, do the laundry and clean the house – just like you do.
Most of us are pretty busy and angel therapy practitioners are no different. Most days, we are juggling several things, in addition to our families and kids. For instance, in between my readings, I may also be scheduling appointments, writing articles, updating my web site or working on presentations for workshops and classes. Of course, there are also voice mails and emails to answer and long distance running sessions to fit in!
However, when I do a reading for you, I give you 100% of my focus! That means that I tune out everything else, including anything that may be going on in my own life at that moment. Once your reading is done though, I no longer have access your personal information so that’s why I record your session and burn it to a CD for your personal use.
Think of it this way… My mind is working like a computer – and any information that I share with you should be considered your ‘Personal Reading File’. I couldn’t possibly save all of my clients’ files on ‘my mind’s computer’ or I would crash pretty quickly J Once your reading is done, my mind says ‘Time to Delete’!
So while I am in a session with you and 100% focused on YOU, I can answer any questions you might have. But if you email me two days after your reading with another question, it’s not as if I can ‘go backward’ to that moment in time – when I was focused and connected to ‘your personal file’. It just doesn’t work that way, unfortunately. I tell people it’s like my psychic antennas are up all the time but the switch is not always ‘on’ so I am not always tuned in.
So I hope this helps you to understand what my work and day-to-day activities are like. And perhaps you now have a better idea of how the processing part works when I do readings. Like I said, I am just like you except I have access to a few extra frequencies.
