Sweet Nectar of Life
After having fun at last nights informational essential oil class in my office. Inspiration prompted me this morning to feed the creative fires within my soul. By producing my own version of a classic with this healthy twist. Introducing my healthy morning brew to you.
In letting go all things are possible. Imagine that?…
Yesterday was one of those times. Spirit is continually present in my life. Jesus said, “Ask and you shall receive, and your joy will be complete” – John 16:24.
After speaking to my sister about how we as people seem to try much to hard to get things to come together. She agreed. We have a need to feel as if we are in control. Ultimately we never are. It’s all an illusion. There’s a small card in my car as a reminder that says Give love expecting nothing in return. I decided to accomplish this more frequently than I have done in the past, to see what would come about. Inspired by the results I share what I’m continuing to learn. Often times I turn to prayer when I’m not sure what to do or which way to go… Getting out of our own way really seems to allow things to flow to us effortlessly when they are meant to be.
Prayer was an essential part of life growing up in the Catholic faith. It’s what I’ve been taught. Although it felt more out of memorization and obligation to me rather than as a connection to something bigger than myself. It wasn’t until I realized later in life that prayer does a body good, it’s also wonderful spiritual tool for the soul, but that’s another blog post altogether. For now let me explain.

Yesterday I went to the dentist for what I thought was a somewhat routine visit to have a couple of crowns put on and a filling addressed.
5 hours later I was finally able to walk out of the dentist’s office. Long day… I was in a good deal of discomfort from having to hold my jaw open for that long and also from the gum tissue that had to be cut away with the laser. Not to mention the 10 or so shots of novocain I courageously endured… It wasn’t that bad I guess, but what can I say… I’m a strong one or so my dentist told me. He had to use more novocain than normal. He said “You need more than the average bear”… I nervously giggled. Was he relating me to a bear? I thought, no.. I was now a full fledged Queen as I received my first and hopefully last 2 crowns ever… Who knows, but he made me laugh. Btw.. I really like my new dentist. Great guy! Dr. Brian Trachtenburg. Check him out and mention my name if you are in the market for a new dentist who is completely thorough. They give out nice gifts to all new patients 🙂 http://www.tymatrachtenbergdental.com
He explained to me how challenging my situation was. Long story short. I was told to get on a pain reliever right away. I had to disagree. FYI.. During the procedure I felt called to send Reiki healing to myself, the hygienists, and to my dentist. Continue reading A snip in Lavender was well ahead of it’s Thyme❤️ →
Chapel of the Holy Cross Nov. 7th, 2016
I can’t explain how exactly I am moved or why I feel the way I do when attending the prayer service at the Chapel in Sedona, AZ. I feel there’s a profound healing energy that resides beneath the surface of the Chapels’ energetic footprint deep within the red rocks. Each and almost every time I’m there praying for people I am completely moved to tears. God’s presence is felt there by so many weary travelers. Yesterday was once again one of those times. It is my understanding that tears are a release of what our hearts cannot say. I believe we should always allow the tears to flow when we feel the need to do so. A release should never be held back or held within. Always allow the pent up energy to flow fluidly from your eyes. Tune into your body afterwards to see how much better you feel. I bet you it will be the difference between night and day. Letting go of what no longer serves you allows for healing, for growth and expansion to begin. To heal is to shift your energy. You were never actually broken you know, only in need of a rewiring, a shift in thought, which essentially is all energy. So shift your thoughts and shift your mind. This is what people in the spiritual community are referring to as a Holy Shift!? The feelings that I felt my heart was expressing to me in that moment when the tears began to well up in the corners of my eyes is that I am eternally grateful for all of you in my life. For your trust in me that your prayers would be carried up to the alter of this Chapel. Which by the way has been blessed this year as a healing place of Mercy by the Pope. I was lucky enough to be here in February with my cousin, Melissa and now to be back here again yesterday in such a reverent and Holy space. The Year of Mercy will commence on the 15th of November. It has been my honor that together with my Mom we were able to carry your prayers from PA to AZ and lay them on the alter next to the cross with Jesus for Divine Healing of the highest and best good for all those involved.
As I held you all in prayer, there was one point just as I was beginning to get in line to walk up to the alter Continue reading Blind Faith… Healing at the Chapel →
A few seconds after trying to get her to stand on her own with no luck I called Quakertown Veterinary hospital since it was New Year’s Day and no one else was open. They were open Thank God. The woman on the phone was extremely kind and told me to come right over. She said they would do whatever my dog Lilly needed. Human Angels I tell you, that is what those who work with our beloved pets shall be called from here on out in my opinion. I called my brother Mike to assist me simply because he is awesome! He is one of the kindest souls I know. Mike, I’m so grateful for you in my life. I want you to know that! From the bottom of my heart.❤️ He is a human Angel as well. Although he probably doesn’t see it that way, I sure do.
Off we went to the vet, with Lilly in tow. Once we arrived we were able to spend some time with her in a private room before she took her last breath in this world and transitioned over into the Heaven-world. Here’s an interesting tidbit.. We had to wait quite awhile for the veterinarian who was on her rounds. We were told she was busy dealing with a little chihuahua who was having seizures. We waited patiently and then after some time I began to wonder what was taking so long? We had been there over 25 minuets. Lilly seemed anxious. Was she feeding off of my energetic responses? Probably. I didn’t want her getting upset. It was bad enough I felt that she already knew why we were here. Animals have that sixth sense thing. It’s an ability and a gift that some of us have as well, to a degree. Only their senses are even stronger than ours. The sense of knowing in dogs is uncanny. With them I believe they can smell death just as they can smell fear. I wondered to myself again what’s taking so long? I had to let go.. CONTROL issues haha! We all have them.
A few months ago one of my clients came into the salon for her haircut. She was glowing, no she was actually beaming! Her heart’s center could be seen radiating out into the salon even before she entered the building. I was stunned. Taken back for a moment. I’m not used to seeing her this energetically exuberant. She normally just smiles when she enters the salon. I have felt that she has had a heavy heart for some time now. This just goes to show that you never actually know what someone is going though in life. Please remember to always be kind.
(I will call my client Marina for the intent of this story.) On this particular day Marina was radiant. Dressed in a vibrant cobalt blue blouse that enhanced the slate cool blue tone of her eyes. She radiated God’s Divine Love. There was something different about her. I was thrilled to see her in this new light.
We all tumble into the shadows from time to time. That is part of life. Accepting life’s ups with the downs. We cannot be happy all the time. (Although I for one would like it that way, except that we would never appreciate the good days because the balance would not be present. Like the yin and the yang, life is all about finding that celebrated middle ground, or happy medium… Although I am right here!☺️ ) Offering assistance to someone in need can change your life as well as theirs. Have you ever tried it? Going out of your way to give support to someone who’s having a bad day or someone who needs to be heard, or maybe someone who could really just use a kind-hearted hug. Try it sometime. See if it doesn’t change your perspective on things. It will!
As she sat in my beauty chair I asked her how she was doing? I said “You look fantastic! What’s going on?” I also told her to wear more of that cobalt blue color she had on, she looked wonderful in it! Her face lit up when I said this. She may have even blushed. She was beaming even brighter now! Marina began to share something that occurred with me during her previous appointment a few months prior. I listened intently. Marina said “Do you remember the last time I was in? I was feeling down and before I left the salon. You gifted me with that beautiful rose quartz crystal stone?” I said yes I remembered. It was quite vivid in my memory because I felt called by Spirit to do so. I do not do this for everyone. I allow Spirit to guide me with things of this nature. Marina explained how that crystal helped her a great deal. She said she held it in her hand and near her heart. It had imparted healing and wisdom to her. I felt that Spirit urged me to share the crystal with her as her heart chakra was somewhat blocked (this is when energy in or around the heart’s center gets stagnant and isn’t flowing like it should be). Marina explained that not only did the rose quartz crystal help to heal her. She informed me that this one considerate action that I had done for her had a giant ripple effect. The kindness that Spirit assisted me in bestowing to my friend and dear client had rippled out into the ethers like a gentle wave making it’s way across the multiverse. Love has the power to do this like nothing else can! Try it, you’ll see.❤️
Marina shared how her sister too was assisted by this single random act of kindness. Her sister is going through dialysis and Marina wanted to do something positive for her as well. She wanted to pay it forward if you will. So she searched my website looking to see if I sold these crystals. Until recently I did not, however now Spirit has once again guided me to purchase select crystals to aid in healing. Eventually Marina was able to find the perfect crystal chakra set for her sister online. After ordering the crystals and sending them off to aid her sister in healing, she waited to hear what her sister thought of the gift. A few days later Marina was told by her sister what an awesome surprise it was to open the package and see the healing crystals inside! Her sister knew exactly what they were for as Marina explained to me that her sister was a former hippie and adored crystals and crystal healing. This gift was right up her alley. From what I understand Marina says her sister is doing better. I cannot say exactly whether it was the crystals or the genuine Love that was sent in that package being used to assist Marina’s sister. What I can say is that when you give Love you get it back 10 fold. My Mom has always taught me this. Thanks Mom! Marina was so excited to communicate to me what my actions had done for not only herself but for others around her. Her outlook on life was now much brighter. There was a joy in her heart and a light, happy spring in her step. I Love days like this! Makes my job not feel like work at all. I Love what I do!!!
I was sharing this story with my mom as we did our usual prayer-walk on the trail and as soon as I finished telling her the whole story I was halted in my tracks, frozen from the chills running through my physical body as we gazed down at the heart which appears in the photo I have posted above. It was laid out clearly in front of us on the trail by the universe for all the world to see! A perfect twig shaped heart. I even said to my Mom, “No way!” I am always humbled when Spirit sends me signs as validation for the work I do. Being a vessel or conduit for Spirit is one of the highest forms of service.
My mom and I probably walked past this twig heart a thousand times before. We weren’t meant to see it until now.
“God lights the path that we choose to walk along. If we open our eyes and our open our hearts we can see all there is to see.”
I am extremely grateful for Marina’s kindness in gifting her story to me. I share this small gesture of Love and how it rippled out into the vast universal flow of energy and then returned like a boomerang right back in hope that you may see that anything is possible when you believe and give Love unconditionally. ❤️
