Have you ever received positive feedback from someone and downplayed it? This happened to me recently. I realized it’s a habit I’ve had for a very long time. I began to ask myself, “Why do I find it so hard to receive compliments? Why does it make me feel so uncomfortable and why do others see strengths in me that I don’t see?” Whew!

I’ve been thinking about this and sitting with it for awhile and realized it was time to figure it out. It really doesn’t feel good when I downplay the compliments with a comment like, “Oh, it’s no big deal!” Can you feel me squirming in my seat? Yikes! Why is it so hard to accept the compliment and say thank you?

Some new awarenesses have come to me so I thought I would share them with you and invite you to share any you may have with me too! Let’s support one another in our journey of personal growth. We aren’t alone but sometimes it’s easy to forget, isn’t it?

I realize in a deeper way that there are many ways and many different messengers that bring us information. Often in unexpected ways. The people who compliment us are sharing information often from our High Self or Source. Why? Information that is brought into our conscious awareness often can be hidden deep within our Soul and it’s time to bring it out and claim it! This is my belief anyway. So why dishonor or diminish the messenger or message?

Recently I had a conversation with a dear friend and we talked about our culture and the belief that many hold of “It’s better to give than receive!” I’m not saying this belief is bad or wrong. What I became aware of, however; that because this belief is held so deep within us that it has created a Spiritual challenge for us to move forward into more receiving. Does this make sense? I began to wonder why if this is at the core of my discomfort with receiving compliments. Yes!

After sitting with this for awhile I can see that by not accepting the gift of a compliment it can diminish and take away their gift of giving that’s been offered to me. I never looked at it that way. Have you? I know this is one example that I’m sharing and I’m sure there are other instances when it’s happened. Now that I’m consciously aware of it’s impact on the giver I can choose to make some changes even though it might feel uncomfortable for me in the beginning. Practice. Practice. Practice. Right?

By acknowledging the compliment and saying, “Thank you” I take the compliment in more deeply. I also consciously honor the giver who has offered me a different way to see me! Don’t be surprised if it shakes you up and changes you though! Are you willing to be changed? I am, even if it’s uncomfortable. Becoming more and more conscious and healing separation is what we’re choosing isn’t it? What are the many messengers and mirrors reflecting to you?

Please join me on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, at Storm Wisdom from 6:30 – 8:00p as I channel Luminus who offers information and healing with the loving Messengers of Light.

I Am A Channel!

I’m often asked, “How did you learn to channel?” Others have said, “I would love to learn how to channel!” I’ve been thinking about their comments and would like to share a few thoughts regarding channeling this week. I will use my own experience as an example and encourage anyone who is interested to explore channeling.

What is channeling? Annie Bossingham has said that, “Channeling is the process of receiving information or inspiration from realms beyond our physical reality. The source is not as important as the essence of what is brought through to this reality.” Does this make sense? This explanation works for me. Does it mean as a channel you are possessed or taken over by an entity? Absolutely not! Some channels relay information. Others are semi-conscious and vocalize the beings or levels of consciousness. And still others can be unconscious as they channel.

I have been channeling for many years and some of you have been too! I relay information at times and have evolved to being a Trance Channel who vocalizes the beings and consciousness that I channel. I’ve been Trance Channeling almost 4 years now. read more…

You Are Unique!

Have you ever wondered why you can easily “read” people; find meditating challenging; need a power nap during the day; find that channeling is part of your destiny; or why you take on energies/emotions from other people? These are just a few things that me and others have wondered about. I believe that each one of us is individual and unique.

Recently I was invited to accompany a friend and join her in her Human Design session with Gisela. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Human Design I like to think of it as a tool that helps you understand how you are “hardwired”. I know that sounds simple but it’s the easiest way for me to explain it. More importantly, through the understanding of how you are “hardwired” it creates opportunities to know and accept yourself more deeply, respond to others differently, and understand why some of the things you do are innate. Is Human Design the only tool that can help? No, there are many tools that are available to us. Each one provides different perspectives and understanding. read more…


A few days ago I was surprised to hear the words to John Lennon’s song “Imagine” playing over and over in my head. Has that ever happened to you when out of the blue you can’t let go of a song? It happens to me occasionally. The part of the song that especially touched me was the refrain:
“You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one.”

When I listen to this song the words touch my soul. I wondered why I was remembering this particular song and what it was reflecting in my life. I thought about the words “people living for today; people living in peace; and people sharing all the world” as well. Wow!! This is a dream I hold too! read more…
