It’s official! I am Self-employed.
That’s what I told the police officer who gave me a (wrongful turn) ticket
recently. If I had been more awake, it wouldn’t have happened. I am thinking
lately that these “bumps in the road” happen so we can release old negative
patterns. So this month’s theme is about letting go of the old and welcoming the new
(again!). And while the new may look like chaotic energy, lots of changes or
transitions, we have all the tools to thrive in this environment. Sometimes it takes
doing some new things to stir up the creative juices. Doing something new can be
exciting and invigorating. What are your plans for August? Make this an august aka
With Mercury still
retrograde, it’s the perfect time to let go of the old stuff (MR ends August
8th). An analogy might be the re-paving of the parking lot that’s
happening by my apartment as I write this. First the trucks show up and cordon off
the area (good job I moved my truck!), then they go over the cracks with tar, then
they drive the truck slowly as a guy at the back hand sprays the parking lot, doing
a slow methodical sweep over every inch. After the tar dries, next day the striping
is done. And now we have a new-looking parking lot.
Being in huge transition
mode myself, the biggest boulder in the road was recognizing the anger I had
surrounding my last four-year stint in the corporate world. This sealing of the lips
(not speaking) was the biggest, but now I have no one else but myself to love, honor
and respect. There were some other angers, but who wants to know; needless to say
the one mentioned was the tip of the iceberg. Two psychic readers suggested that I
write out some of this, express myself, and then it was suggested that I use the
burning bowl ceremony. That meant shopping for the perfect bowl – of course I had to
go shopping. And I found a copper urn-type cauldron/planter thing that is 12” in
diameter, plenty big enough for all my anger, I thought. I could have used a metal
bucket I had, but with all this newness flooding me, I had to buy a suitable
container. (It can be used as a planter later!) The first day I wrote out pages, I
wrote to my parents too, and quite a bit of smoke was wafting away from my balcony.
The next day, different angers, and it took a few matches to light a flame.
Interesting. Of course, I researched burning bowl ceremonies. I had participated in
a couple of groups that did this at New Years when intentions for the next year were
included. I am sure some wise words were uttered, but have forgotten what they were.
In the Reiki magazine www.reiki.org
Colleen Benelli had
written some material http://www.reikiwebstore.com/
but I decided to come up with my own ritual. This took a few days as a format simmered
in my brain. You might see this in a future article on my website
Burning bowls rituals can also be used to help attract or manifest. You can do this
at any time, even the New Moon or Full Moon can be beneficial.
Speaking of my website,
Sound Energy Plus has a new format, new photos, new look, everything, thanks to the
hard work of my new web goddess, Lauree Wilkerson, http://www.ActionWebExpertServices.com
cannot be more pleased with the re-vamping, re-organizing; I will be adding more
articles and creating workshops, but the re-model is like a breath of fresh air. Let
me know what you think.
Last month I did
experience the “skinny” body wrap and, yes, I did lose inches thanks to Judith Rosen
from It Works www.itworks.net
if you notice anything different about me over the next few weeks, it just might be
due to their products.
The focus for me in July
and August, especially with Mercury retrograde, has been to get my business
organized. This meant working with a coach (just needed to get focused) and working
with an organizer (I just needed a jumpstart!) to get my clutter cleared. Not
exactly clutter, but, you know, the boxes of paper that never got emptied. Now I can
see the light at the end of the long tunnel!
I also got re-qcquainted
with an acupuncturist, Nancy Corsaro at East-West Acupuncture
located at Keller
Springs/Marsh in Carrollton. Nancy is versed in acupuncture and Chinese herbology,
she’s a Leo who can tell it like it is. I have been a fan of acupuncture for a long
time. If you want results, go see Nancy.
All Eyes On
For me the Olympic
awesome event. Thank goodness for YouTube http://my.earthlink.net/article/top?guid=20120727/
so I can watch specific videos, including the opening ceremony. Apart from the Queen
looking bored, I have been impressed and thrilled. Athletes from over 200 countries all
deserve accolades for the hours they have practiced their sport, and in the end it
often comes down to a seconds or a point. And did you see the UFO
the opening ceremony? When you start searching the net, there is also sinister
information out there talking about disruption at the Games. As lightworkers, we can
send light and thoughts of peace to the stadium, game sites and surrounds. I was
advised about using the flower of life symbol Vortex Energy
part 29 - 2012 Olympics, Crop Circles, The Olympians and the Consciousness of
Humanity (a 38 minute
video, which I found interesting, material on crop circles, leylines, etc. – may be
too heavy for some folks as this references sinister agendas) as well as using an
invocation from Patricia Cota-Robles http://the2012scenario.com/
is a 3-minute video using the flower of life http://www.youtube.com/gridkeeper
This last site has a long list of interesting videos.
I was very excited to see
Dana Vollmer win gold in swimming http://www.nbcolympics.com/
.Dana is from Granbury (just
outside Dallas) and lives glutenfree. (Just a side note, there is a Gluten
and Allergen Free Expo www.gfafexpo.com
September 8-9 at The
Westin Park Central in Dallas (by 635 and 75), might just go for the samples, well I
might attend the classes too.)
Thank goodness for the
internet. NBC has the monopoly on the Olympic broadcasting, and not having cable,
channel 5 is not one of my channels I can pick up. (Yes, selective television is
back on my activity list.) But with YouTube, I can watch Olympicc highlights easily.
Hope you are tuning in to the global event of the Summer!
So my astrologer friend,
Claire, reviewed my astrology chart in July. What is a Pisces like me with so many
water signs doing throwing in the corporate towel? She was curious, I was curious.
This updated chart sparked a deeper interest in astrology. I was familiar with my
rising/ascending/moon signs, but now I can brag that my Mercury is in Pisces and my
Jupiter is in Scorpio. Before, this didn’t mean anything. Of course, I had to add to
my astrology library and “Creative Stars” by Trish MacGregor provides some
fascinating clues. How to avoid creative burnout, how to summon the muse, was just
what I needed, especially when I can get so sidetracked. It takes a certain
discipline to create your own business which I am discovering daily. If you are
curious about astrology or tarot, stop by and visit Claire at the Dallas Psychic
Fair. As for my creative flair, stay tuned. After this current clearing binge, I
will be ready to let the creative juices flow.
See me at the Dallas Psychic Fair
www.dallaspsychicfair.comdoing mini-energy balancing sessions on Sunday, August
5th. Located at the Doubletree Hotel at LBJ/Midway now. I look forward to
The North Dallas Reiki share group meets August 8th

you have participated in one of my previous pendulum dowsing workshops, this one is
FREE. Located in North Dallas. Call to reserve your spot!
Getting to the Finish Line
Last month I recommended
“Advanced Chakra Healing: The Four Pathways – Cancer” http://books.google.com/books/
by Cyndi Dale www.cyndidale.com. This book is not just for
cancer patients or caregivers, but is of interest to healers. Cyndi also has a
similar book for the heart. Mix healing with quantum theory and you have new ways of
energy shifting. Written in 2005, this book is for current times. I’m not quite at
the finish, but making good strides.
Somewhere in this newsletter, I
love to share new and useful information. Here is a 10-minute demonstration on
self-massage aka Self Abhjyanga http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNKcdlQKyMc&feature=share. It
was filmed in Costa Rica. Nice to daydream that I am there too!
August is the month of special
offerings. Snap these up as specials don’t last forever. For instance, the Special
Value Package includes three Reiki sessions (value $180) for only $150.00. You
choose the dates! Consider coming by for a massage. One way to release that stress!
Have you ever experienced a tuning fork session? Book an appointment for any of my
services and I will give you a demonstration. Also let’s negotiate rates too, I am
always looking for testimonials.
Whilst it’s cool indoors, it can
be refreshing to be in the swimming pool, so take a screen-break and get outside to
have a change of scenery. It’s too hot to think about an open house, but do call on
me and check out the dedicated healing space and my clutter-free living area. And I
might show off all the aloes that are flourishing and the sweet basil by the front
door. As for the rest of the plants, they are struggling in the heat. Remember to
say Most Benevolent Outcomes for the world drought situation, go to
www.thegentlewaybook.comif you want more information, or come by and borrow my book. This
is a time to share brotherly and sisterly love. All those old hurts need to be
forgiven. It is time to express kindness, to be generous and to chill out. Don’t be
hot-tempered, be the cool one. Listen to your heart. Enjoy Olympic moments. It’s a
great time to be alive! Have a wonderful month!
