July is Reiki month!
On July 14th I will be facilitating a Reiki
II workshop. Are you interested in the Reiki I or II http://www.soundenergyplus.com/Workshops-Classes.html
workshops? Let me entice you. My first
question to anyone interested in Reiki is sometimes “Have you experienced a Reiki treatment?” If
you schedule a Reiki session ($65) with me before next Reiki I class (July
28th), I will deduct this amount from the
($150) workshop fee. How is that for a deal??

June 23rd I presented the “Dowsing and Healing” workshop. This workshop is geared
towards those who already work with the pendulum and have a serious interest in the art of healing.
It now includes over 25 different techniques and is over 140 pages (and growing!). Call me if
interested, let’s chat! Just getting started with the pendulum? I also offer an “Introduction to
Pendulum Dowsing” so call me for dates and times.
I hope your month is filled with joyfulness and fun. Have a wonderful July
4th holiday! My friends will be enjoying traditional fare that day
(veggie burgers for me please) as well as relaxing and watching fireworks in the evening.
Have a truly fabulous month!
A couple of months ago I wrote a comment
or two about being empathic. Here is a list of 30 traits attributed
you really want to know if you fit into this category, here you go. To be honest, I think we all
fit some of this, some of the time. I mean -
anti-routine, free-spirited, creative - could describe me some days. So, let
me ask, do you know any empaths
yourself, thatis)? Can you empathize or relate with them? Perhaps a little
understanding will go a long way.
Bridging Science and Spirit!
For many years I have known about the International Society
for the Study of Subtle and Energy Medicine (ISSSEEM). (Belated thanks to Bessie!) They have an
online magazine, but also you can access their archives http://www.issseem.org/archive-welcome.cfm
which contain articles by some of the big names in the
scientific and spiritual frontiers. Open any issue and it seems you can find something of
interest. This organization also provides insurance for energy medicine
. So if your interest is piqued subscribe and get up-to-date information!
Dowsing & Aromatherapy!
I love it when two of my passions come together. Here we have
pendulum dowsing and aromatherapy or essential oils. Here is an excerpt from An A-Z Aromatherapy by
Patricia Davis (p.102). You might just gain an idea or two! And if this is “old hat” to you, see if
you agree. I like her dowsing analogy.
“Dowsing involves using a pendulum, which will move in
different directions in response to questions. For many people, a clockwise swing indicates “Yes”
and anticlockwise “No” but this is not universal, and everybody who wants to use a pendulum needs
first to find out what the appropriate movement is for themselves, by asking a simple questions
with a known answer, such as ‘Is this Lavender oil?’
Some aromatherapists employ dowsing
as an aid to choosing the right essential oil to use for a particular purpose. My own feeling is
that with a thorough knowledge of the oils and their properties and an intuitive response to the
person you are treating, dowsing is not really necessary. It often confirms what you already know
intellectually, or have felt to be right intuitively. However, even this confirmation can be
valuable for a beginner at aromatherapy.
Another area of use, which I do employ quite often, is to
check on the purity and origin of a sample of essential oil, if I am not entirely certain about its
quality. It is possible to ask such questions as ‘Is the oil in this bottle completely pure?’ or
‘Are there chemical residues in this oil?’
Dowsing is also used extensively to check on foods for
allergy sufferers. This is a really useful ‘spot-check’, as it can be done in a few moments, in a
small space and unobtrusively, which is very useful when eating out or shopping. More comprehensive
tests can be done later if necessary.
How does dowsing ‘work’? If we take the analogy of a clock,
the hands don’t tell the time; the inner mechanism of the clock does that, but the hands make it
possible for us to see what the time is. A pendulum doesn’t ‘know’ anything, but it makes it easier
for us to get in touch with our own intuitive knowledge, perhaps even with the collective
No special knowledge or skill is needed to dowse. Everybody
can do it if they wish to. You can buy a pendulum ready-made, or improvise with any small, heavy
object, such as a doorkey or ring, threaded on a cord.”
Of course, you can dowse without a pendulum, but that
discussion is for another day.

Thumbs Up to The Daily Show
freemanwith Jon Stewart, I mean, John
for the summer. I can actually understand the humour!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Oliver_%28entertainer%29
Come to find out that we both went to school in Bedford,
though the school he attended wasn’t even built when I was around. The Daily Show may end up
being my news source since you can watch episodes on the web!! So I looked up my old school.
(Note to self to contact Wikipedia to have me listed under Notable Former Pupils for the
notorious Dame Alice Harpur School, such an oversight!)
Thanks to Karla B. for turning me on to the Awakening Zone
an international network for empowered awakening, hosted
by (very English) Sandie Sedgbeer, owner of New Earth
Publications and planetlightworker.com http://www.planetlightworker.com/
now living in Scottsdale, Arizona. I have listened to two
interviews so far, well worth it. Check out their archives or upcoming shows to see if any
Thumbs Up to DART http://www.dart.org/
! I rode the bus and train on Dump-The-Pump day (June
20th) and was pleasantly surprised by the service. Might just have to plan more day
And thumbs up to Hong Kong who publicly recognized that
the NSA/CIA is spying on Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, PalTalk, YouTube,
Skype, AOL, etc.We can all thank Edward Snowden for
bringing this to our attention!
Out & About!
Did you know the Egg & I was a franchise? Senior
discounts (10%), especially on Tuesdays (20%) http://www.theeggandirestaurants.com/
locations/dallas.html should be noted,
now in 21 States. Don’t just do eggs over easy, go a little more
expensive for the eggs benedict, worth it! Yes, once in a while I stray from the gluten-free/Non
GMO diet. Free meeting room too.
Half Price in Irving is now closed, much to my dismay. All
their books have been shipped to a new store in Austin. Good news is that they are looking for
another site in Irving where the rent is reasonable. Stay tuned. An added benefit for educators and
librarians, you can get a 10% discount card http://www.hpb.com/community/educators/
it or not, there are stores I have not yet visited, like the one in Arlington at Cooper and
Pioneer. Next field trip!
In June I visited the Unity church on Forest
and lo and behold in their
I found a huge (not so huge now!!) selection of used
metaphysical/health books for $2.00 each. Their hours are Mon-Wed 4:30-7pm, Sun 8:30am-1pm. And
if you use their links to buy books through Amazon, the church receives a
Have just ordered free new business
.Well, not exactly free when you add in
postage and additional quantity! Still, a very good deal. Visit me at the
Dallas Psychic Fair and you will see them. The July “Special Offer” is attractive too! I am looking
for new testimonials for my work and am willing to trade “50% off” for some good words. So make
your appointment, and let’s talk! This includes massage, energy balancing, ear candling, ion foot
cleanse and foot massage!! (Don’t trip over any the plants at the front doorway!)
A simple technique for relieving stress, bringing focus, etc.
is called Two Hands Touching http://twohandstouching.com/
from Juniper Bartlett. This might (!!!?) look familiar.
Whatever it takes!
The African mask plants actually survived the winter, and I
thought they died and went to heaven. The leaves look like the ones advertising the Dallas Zoo on
DART buses. And come to think of it, I bought them at a plant sale at the Dallas Zoo over a year
Bring out the
red, white and blue and celebrate with fireworks and fun! Don’t forget to include
the Dallas Psychic Fair www.dallaspsychicfair.com on Sunday July
7th for time to explore your inner world with a reading or two

14-20th. Make your appointment today and get a memorable
Gosh, I made it to the end of “Anna’s Antics”
without a negative comment, political opinion or accusation! (Sarcasm and wit,
yes!) My last words are for everyone to look on the sunny side. Let’s shower our
