August Newsletter

Hellooooo August-ina,

Beauties I am back and in that Leo / Summer / Beast Mode Attack!

I loooooove summer. I love the heat and sun and sweat. I love the windows down and patio door open vibe. I especially like not having to wear much for clothes and can just rock my beachy “it only took me 10 minutes to shower and get dressed” look. Summer is my jam.

I just returned from my long sabbatical 2 weeks ago and it was such a good trip. Upon getting home I felt like I really got time away from work and responsibilities and the norm, it was quite refreshing and just the motivation I needed to get myself back up and flowing. 

I really surprised my workaholic-self and managed to turn off emails and my compulsive business-mindset in the flip of a switch. I can’t tell you how healing that was for me. To not be constantly thinking about all the things I need to be doing, or trying to manage all my creative ideas. Woof. Praise the Goddess for this time off because my health needed it.

Speaking of health, some of you know this, but I have recently started Ketamine treatments for the anxiety and insomnia I often experience. Ketamine has been shown to drastically help people who suffer from depression, anxiety, and PTSD, and my Integrative Medicine Doc has been talking to me about it for a while. When I got home after still having quite a bit of insomnia on my trip, I had met my limit. I was ready to take the plunge, and this shit is edgy. I’m not going to go into all the history here, research it, it’s making some major waves in the mental health field.

After only 3 treatments I am noticing some major shifts.

1. I’m sleeping. It took about a week, but I’m finally able to fall asleep at night! Can I get an AMEN?! Thank the Queen of the stars for this shift! And as a result, I’ve been having more time in my day because I’m not laying in bed awake for endless hours of the night and have been waking up early naturally! Without an alarm clock! This has given me more time during the day to do all that I desire. It’s so wonderful.

2. I’m processing things differently. My reactions aren’t so fast, I’m responding with a different approach. I previously felt immense anxiety and pressure being an entrepreneur and trying to manage all the “things” and people I carry. So often friends would be so excited for my success, but I would just feel dreadful. I knew this is what I wanted, but I didn’t feel like my health was not supporting my Spirit. Needless to say, I would feel more pressure and stress from growing. It was a beast. But now I’ve been feeling super excited for all that I’ve created and am ecstatic to create more! All of a sudden feel confident in my ability to carry and create what my Soul longs for. Hallelujah!

3. I’ve been more in the flow more too. Moving and responding to Life. Less making myself wrong and letting things roll. More in the frequency of knowing that everything will work out. So much less worrying and spending time in that fearful, panic state. As my doc put it, for lack of better terms, “Ketamine resets the neurological motherboard” so it feels like my previous stressful response has shifted to a lighter, more confident and flowing response. 

4. The anxiety isn’t completely gone, but it’s getting better. I haven’t been waking up and going straight into panic mode over the restless night / no sleep / late morning that was happening consistently. I’m still having some issues with my breathing, it can be really difficult to get a full deep breath, but that’s not happening quite as much. 

5. Lastly, I’ve also noticed that I’ve been feeling much more in my heart space. Open, free, loving, and happy.

In it all, I’m finally starting to feel more like myself. More stable. More ease-ful. I feel like I’m able to trust myself again and not be on the emotional rollercoaster I was riding for so long. For the longest time I never wanted to feel normal, but now, it’s feeling so good that I’m starting too.

Blessings to you dear ones, wherever you’re at on your healing journey. This life-ride is wild. Here’s to pulling one more layer back on the health-healing train. Let us take the upsets in life as an opportunity to grow and evolve this Universe <3

With deep love and appreciation,

Hello Beauties,

We must remember that we have Authority dear ones. Authority over our body’s, our minds, our hearts, our health, our relationships, our homes, our jobs……we have Authority!

It is when we forget that we have a say in this whole life game that we really start to get tripped up. We fall into the victim role often, where life is just happening to us, scarce of any power or control over our experience.

And life does happen. It can happen in really big, ugly, and beautiful ways.

But what if life were happening for us? All the big bad things were lessons to help us grow? So we can evolve and be better humans? Develop more of our heart space so we can reunite to the God within?

I was recently in a Trauma Elimination workshop where the leader explained authority in a way that really helped me dial it into my system and nail down this remembering.

That Source energy gave us Authority over our lives. That God originally inherited us with the power to be safe, authentic, and free.

Most of us don’t know this. From childhood, we are told we have to be cooperative and say yes all the time. We watch our parents, teachers and adults give their power away to their jobs and everyone else’s wants and demands. Inside of this landscape, we think we don’t get to direct our lives and believe that something else has greater power over us than we do of ourselves.

That any ‘ole energy can roll up into our field and curse and cast demons upon us, time and time again. That we are at the will of the negative forces of the Universe. But that is not the truth.

The truth is we have always had the power and we are strong. We are only caught in the illusion that our power has been taken away and that we’re powerless in taking it back.

We get to choose what we declare. And when we declare Authority, through the power of God, nothing can stand in your way. No negative thought, limiting belief, or fear too large can uphold it’s power in the face of our Source. No-thing.

New Mantra: I am in Authority of my life. Body, Mind and Soul. Now, before, and evermore.

AHO

July Newsletter

Hello Beauties,

This month, I have gone away to find myself.

Or at least, the next version of myself and my work.

To rest, relax and recharge.

My higher self has been calling me to slow down and take time for myself. To have fun and play and laugh and….do whatever my heart desires.

This is tough for me. I am a workaholic. By design and family of origin, I go-go-go, do-do-do, and try to accomplish as much as possible on any given day. Very masculine. There are good parts to it. I’ve created a successful business. I’m growing in clients and opportunities. I’m able to pay my bills and go on a vacation.

But I don’t say no very well and it’s hard for me to hold work boundaries. My central nervous system is usually pretty revved up and I feel anxious a lot of the time. Always thinking of the next thing I should be doing and creating, who I should be helping and getting back too. I’ve been finding myself constantly reacting to the requests of others, rather than responding to the needs and wants of myself.

I guess you could say I’m running into the next tier of what any successful, committed entrepreneur comes into. How do I manage the monster I built? How do I run the business instead of the business running me?

This, I am still figuring out, and I notice it’s quite difficult to Ask and Listen to Source for how to restructure something when you’re deeply inside of it.

So, I am going away. Hitting the proverbial Pause button so I can spend some time in fantasy-land, allow myself to dream, drop into my feminine, and flow.

Not to worry, I will be back. Refeshed and recharged. Hopefully with more clarity on how to serve myself first, so I can better serve you.

I will be gone July 8 – 28th and will not be answering emails, calls or texts until I return.

Blessings to you ~ Aho

May Newsletter

Hello Beauties,

I love the month of May! 

I asked Spirit what wanted to be channeled for this month’s newsletter, and I kept seeing and hearing how the word Heal, is in the word Health.

You know healing is my favorite topic, and lately I’ve been tuning into etymology, which is the study of the history of words. I can’t help but think and feel that in the creation of the word health, they knew that one would undergo heal-ing.

This tells me that healing is literally in the DNA of what it means to be healthy. That’s pretty neat to me! Especially as I continue to take deep dives into my own healing and being of service to others.

The way my healing journey is appearing to me currently is like a spiral. I go round and round this red and gold threaded path, submerging myself deeper and deeper into the dark, light shining when I remember to lift my head. I am greeted by familiar faces of wounds I have long known, they may have a new haircut, but their eyes are still the same. They come here to teach me. They and I, we’ve made sacred contracts to help me grow and raise the vibration of consciousness. They are not here to take me down, quite the contrary, they are here to lift me up. Higher and higher, as I go deeper and deeper, into the depths of my own awareness.

Until I remember that I one with all. With Source Creator. That, in my essence, I am no different than the trees shimmering with the wind. I am majestic and tattered, light-filled and scorned, alive and still sometimes, feel dead.

That this is Earth school and I came here to learn. Experience is my teacher and you are my classmates. That we’re in this together and thank God for that.

So I bow to you. My sister, my brother, my opposite-yet-equal that doesn’t want to be gender identified. We are the creators and let us remember that we get to choose who we are, what we want, how we respond and what kind of world we want to live in.

This world needs healing. We all do. Let’s support each other in that and choose Health every day. For ourselves, each other, Pacha-mama and the Yoni-verse.

Aho  

With deep love and appreciation,

Lisa

April Newsletter

Hello Beauties,

Are you just LOVING the bloom of these amazing trees in KC right now?!I’m really noticing how the birth of color is bringing me so much inspiration and joy, HECK YES to plants!!

I tried to write this newsletter a number of times yesterday and it just wasn’t flowing. I wasn’t connecting to any of the subjects I tried to speak about, and thank goodness I had a client come so I didn’t twiddle my fingers at it for the rest of the evening.

I woke up early this morning and read my Louise Hay daily devotional, and upon seeing what today’s topic was, I saw that I kept getting stuck writing because I needed a new perspective. I’ve been going through a period of many physical challenges again – insomnia, adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalance, low energy, depression, (who knows what else) – but I as I tried to share about these topics from the mindset of struggle and hardship, it just wasn’t fitting.

It wasn’t working because that wasn’t where I was with it anymore. Yes, these things suck and they can be truly maddening at times, but I could hear Spirit knocking on my door saying I needed to come at these things from a different perspective. I had to be willing to open my mind to a new flow of energy around them, and I just wasn’t quite there yesterday.

Insert Louise’s book today, and I see that I just needed a little inspiration and validation. For today she says, “I Am Willing To Learn What Life Is Trying To Teach Me.” She says we want to be grateful for the lessons we have and to not run from lessons; they are little packages of treasure that have been given to us, and as we learn from them, our lives change for the better.

At this point, I am willing to see that these challenges are trying to teach me something. I know that if something is coming up – and in this case, coming up in a Big way – that I am ready to let go of something that is hindering my life in a big way.

All so often when we (I) go deeper into a wound or challenge, it gets worse before it gets better. And typically we (I) think we’re doing something wrong to make it worse and fear we’re (I’m) never going to come out of it.

This is a common game played by the ego. Telling us we’re always going to be locked in our pain and sorrow. That this is never going to end or get better and there are no answers. And that’s true, but only if we believe it!

The truth is, we get to say. We get to say what we’re going to allow something to be, or not be. We get to choose our perspective and always have the option to rejoice in the face of a problem.

Insert Mantra: I AM WILLING TO LEARN WHAT LIFE IS TRYING TO TEACH ME!

With deep love and appreciation,

Lisa

March Newsletter

Dear Beloveds,

Happy Spring Solstice!

I looooove spring. I love the whole concept – waking, birthing from the dead of winter, planting new seeds in the soft ground of spring (our hearts), and watching them (us) blossom and grow as the longer days carry on.

The seeds I’m planting in my spring garden this year are:

1. Boundaries:

For the longest part of my life, I had never even heard of boundaries and had no idea what they were. Give myself away to everyone all the time and therefore never have a center? Yep! That was me. But not anymore, and not because I don’t love giving myself to others – I LOVE CONNECTION – however as my energy healing business is expanding, I’m seeing that I can’t if I want to keep my sanity.

In order for me to stay healthy and serve my clients, I’m really having to get precise on my time. I have a long history of “going over” time with client sessions, and I really can’t afford to do that anymore. I’ve got more responsibilities than ever, and for me to stay in integrity to myself, my family, and my business, I’m setting clear intentions to the Universe to cut back on giving myself away.

2. Higher Consciousness

I took my second course in Higher Consciousness training this past weekend with Stephen Busby and the seeds I am planting from it are more noticing of the subtle energy realms. To notice what’s happening inside me, as I witness you – my friend, partner, or client. Our bodies are always reacting to the energy of our environment. This course reawakened my curiousity of the relational field in which “all things are happening” and where co-creation exists.

This course reminded me of the depth of healing that can occur simply through our quality of listening. To be fully present and with someone as they share their own wonderings of life, with no interruptions and interjecting of questions, creates a space for one’s own wisdom and insights to arise.

I found this work to literally be at the “edge” of what’s desiring to come through. All those things that aren’t said, but exist in the energetic. The spaces between the words and the response of the soul – just shy of breaking through…

I am dropping seeds in the collective for myself and others to be witnessed as the soul embodiment that I (we) are, and by this, are healed through an unknown quality of presence.

3. Ease

I’ve talked about this before and I feel like I need to bring it in again for myself and our world. I am sprinkling seeds of Ease throughout my entire life and wish to drop them along my path so that others can Exhale too. Have you ever noticed how you sometimes hold your breath? Me too. Ease is even missing in the most natural thing these days.

I desire to be more easy with myself. To be ease-full, to go with the flow more and Let. Life. Happen. To no longer question what happens to me as if it shouldn’t be happening. This insanity of questioning reality causes me lots of un-ease, anxiety, depression, and unrest.

I linked up with a lot of lessons these last few weeks and I found myself sooooo tired because I was literally fighting life at every corner I turned. I see this a lot with my clients as well. Many of us are so freakin’ hard on ourselves, with impossible expectations and so much pressure I’m surprised our heads don’t explode – until they do.

At the Higher Consciousness workshop I got 2 MASSIVE headaches. The pain came on so sharp and quick that I got nauseous and had to puke. This is what I’m talking about. The build-up of energy gets so intense that the only way for the body to release is to get sick, so it can get back to its normal homeostasis of Ease.

What seeds are you planting in your spring garden this year? What wants to be left in the dead of winter, and what wants to blossom anew?

Happy Spring-time you cute little bunnies!

With deep love and appreciation,

Lisa

February Newsletter

Dear Beloveds,

Happy February Love Month <3 

I am a firm believer in practicing receiving and giving love every day, and notice how I said receiving FIRST, and giving SECOND. It’s the time old adage, but it’s still around because it’s true. In order to fill someone else’s cup, we first must receive love into our own.

Most of us, including myself, poo-poo’ed this idea for so long. “Yea yea, I have to receive first, ok, let me go back to giving all my energy and power away, become completely burn out, cry victim, and repeat the cycle all over again.” I get it, I was one of these people, and I am in receiving recovery.

In the US culture, most of us aren’t taught how to receive. We’re told it’s wrong to take and to always give more of ourselves.

But if you think about this in terms of energy input and energy output, how can this be truth? How can we actually give more energy than we have? Right, we can’t. Reality check.

After completing my Feminine Magic course in December, I am still fine-tuning my receiver. The first feminine principle is to Receive, and throughout the 10 month course, I became very aware how much I’m not receiving.

Not receiving life, pushing off compliments, not asking for help, not allowing others to care for me, not receiving rest, not receiving friendship —– this was an epiphany, no wonder I couldn’t relax, had anxiety, insomnia, and relationship issues – I was blocking the flow of energy!

And so many of us are. We are a world of over-functioning, over-achieving, over-over-over go-go-go more-more-more and it’s up to us to re-write the script, because all of this over-doing isn’t getting us anywhere but tired and sick.

So this month of love, I invite you to receive. How can you receive more love into your daily life? And by the way, you don’t need someone else to do this (that’s conditional love) we can all receive free love from the trees, the birds, God, a pet, a smile, a hug, a creative project – you name it.

Ways I receive self-love are by taking good care of myself. Rest, healthy food, hydration, movement, creativity, connection and FUN! Not to mention I love scheduling time with some of my favorite healer’s to work my body, bring peace to my mind and fill up my soul.

Then I’ve got lots of love to give to my partner, my pets, my peeps, and the world.

First 3 people to reply back with ways they’re receiving love this month get $20 off an 1.5hr Energy Healing Session!

With deep love and appreciation,

Lisa

January Newsletter

Hello Beloveds,

Buurrrrrrrr……hello January! Hot-dang it’s cold outside! ;p If you know me I have never been one for the cold, however I will say something has shifted where I’m appreciating it more now. I’ve found myself enjoying the change of the seasons, and embracing winter while it’s here.

I’ve also noticed that my resting body temperature has gone up. I’m not as freezing cold as I used to be. I’m finding in groups that others are cold and I’m not, or I’m even too warm. I’m actually the hot one in some settings! This is astronomical to my historically FREEZING self.

I discussed this with a girlfriend over the weekend and my theory is that as I’m healing myself and creating more balance of all my systems – physically / mentally / emotionally / spiritually – my body is integrating this higher light frequency of healing and thus creating more equanimity between my Self and my environment. To me this is just another example how we can truly heal ourselves and create what we want and need in our lives. We have the power! But only if WE say so!

Speaking of healing, you all know this is my favvvv topic as a practitioner of Energy Medicine, and I realize some may not understand what it is. Even I have a hard time defining it. It truly has an essence of that which cannot be completely defined – like all Magic in life….(wink-wink, but for real 😉

However, the best way I’ve heard it said is this: “Energy Healing activates the body’s natural healing and energy balancing techniques to facilitate renewal and transformation of the body for optimal wellbeing and a Joy for life.” ~ Energy Medicine Practitioner Kim Wedman

During a session, I tap into your energy body and feel / see / ask what systems need clearing, what areas need balance, and what parts need restoration. I then work to create harmony and optimization of these systems through different energy healing techniques and methods. Our bodies are made of energy and are electromagnetic, and this forms the infrastructure of the body. When working within this infrastructure, balance, flow and harmony can be non-invasively restored and maintained.

I have found that Energy Healing sessions are good for anything and everything. Whether you’re dealing with a physical ailment or dis-ease, loss and grief, breakup and heartache, eating disorders, emotional upheaval, fear and anxiety, job loss or creating a new endeavor – Energy Medicine can help open up pathways of stuck energy, clear blocks that have been in place for lifetimes, and balance the systems of Mind + Body + Spirit to return the receiver to their natural, God-connected, loving state.

I’ve seen this happen first hand in my own healing journey and countless others through clients for the past 4 years.

Here’s one testimonial from a client who went through my 12-week Energy Healing Program:

I went through Lisa’s Energy Healing Program and it was amazing!!

I was a lost puppy when we met. I had been connected to myself in the past so I knew what that felt like but I was miles away when this program started. I really needed this. I wanted to get back to the place where I felt love for myself and I felt like that all started with meeting Lisa and going through this program. This year brought so much change for me as far as lifestyle and career and I don’t think I would have the success that I’ve had without her guidance and healing.

Lisa did such a great job of explaining what each chakra meant and I really liked how she incorporated yoga poses with each one. I think it’s extremely helpful for someone like me that didn’t have a lot of experience with the chakras to really break them down one by one. Her space is so warm and inviting and I always felt very comfortable. In the beginning of each session she would take the time to check in and gave me permission to spill out all the good with the bad. Lisa is such a good listener and had incredibly helpful feedback for what was ailing me. I found it really easy to incorporate her advice (cut the emotional chord!) and have shared with others to help them too!

I even brought my sister in with a visit with Lisa and she was blown away by the experience and went on and on about what a powerful and positive healing it was.

I can’t say enough good things about Lisa and what she does. She is such a genuine, powerful and kind person and I’m happy to say that she is now a friend as well. She is such a gift to this world and I will treasure each visit that we have together.

December Newsletter

Hello Beloveds,

This month has been quite tender thus far. As the Sagittarius zodiac does, there has been a lot of big life decisions and changes ushering in, and dreams and visions from the true self coming through. The types of things that are life-changing, that bring up so much fear and grief, it’s dropped me to my knees.

You know in those moments, when all of a sudden, you are your parents? In the blink of an eye, you see yourself exactly as your mother or father, or in their situation? The things you said would never be your fate as a child, show up just-like-that as an adult? This happened to me this week. It was so surreal. I didn’t really see it coming, and yet, there was premonition all along.

On Monday morning my partner called me with severe chest pain. He’d been having it that morning and refused to stay home. When it hadn’t gone away later on he called me, his mom talked him into going to get checked out at Urgent Care. So, off we went, all to be told once we arrived that based off what he was describing, we would need to go to the Emergency Room.

Wow, really? Okay. Get back in the car, and head to the hospital.

Once at the ER, they began to draw his blood and run tests on his heart, giving him medication to help relieve the pain. Lots of waiting and talking to numerous people on his healthcare team, the day wore on. Finally his EKG results were in, there was an arrhythmia in his heart. Do the test again to check, same thing. Before we knew it he was being admitted overnight.

Shock. Again…. Wow, really??? Uh okay…….didn’t see that coming. (Plus many more emotions)

The next morning I show back up, and as I’m sitting their beside him in his hospital bed, I am at once my mother. It almost felt like her energy came into mine and my family’s whole karmic situation was in the forefront. I grew up with a very ill father. He got cancer at 21 and was in relapse/remission until he died 30 years later. As a child it was very common to go visit my dad in the hospital, watch my mom take care of him, and wonder if this time would be his last day.

As Spirit human beings, it is said that we choose our parents, our parents choose us, we choose our siblings, friends and extended family. That all of the people in our lives we created contracts with for our own soul’s growth. The people we are in relationship with are helping us to evolve into who we came here to be in this life, and I totally believe this. I no longer sad that I had a sick father and somewhat sick mother, I get that for many reasons. This was what was best for me and my evolution, and I’ve done a lot of work around learning and healing from this familial karmic pattern.

Their also comes a point though, where we have an opportunity to re-write the script and heal our lineage through the choices we make, the thoughts we think, and the energy we hold. I came to this point yesterday. It was like a movie screen playing in front of my eyes. Seeing the timeline from my great-great-great grandparents and so forth through my parents and to right now before me, with my partner and I.

What will you do, Lisa? What changes will you make right here, right now? How will you handle this? What can you do to stop this learning through sickness, pain, and suffering? Is there a way, to learn and grow through joy and love?

My High Priestess came in and said yes. As someone who believes in limitless possibilities and that you can have everything you want and need, I believe their is a way to shift out of the lower frequencies of learning through fear, shame and guilt, into the higher frequencies of harmony and love. Who says it can only be one way, just because that’s the way we’ve known it to be? I’m talking about a real paradigm shift here, from what’s known, to believing in what’s unknown. That not many are practicing, but it does exist and it all starts with me, you, us. One person at a time.

This is what evolutionary work is, what I try to live and teach and shine a light upon in my work with my clients. To show them they are so much more then there circumstances and family history. That, they first and foremost, are themselves. A bright light of energy, radiating at a frequency that can be lowered and raised, here to be and do anything they can fathom and desire. An essence, an infinite Spirit.

But we have to be willing. Willing to submerge ourselves in these tender parts of our hearts and history, and it isn’t easy, I’m not going to downplay it. These parts huuuurrrrt…….and when you go into them there is so much pain you wonder if you’ll come out alive. My human self has questioned what the hell am I doing when canvasing these places, but my Higher Self knows. Stay here. Be here. Feel it. You’ll be okay.

Through this process, I learn over and over again, that the pain passes. The more I can be with my tender, hurting parts, the less tender and painful they are. But it requires that I make space for myself and my pain. To give it a seat at the table, right along with happiness and joy, so we can all sit around and cry and talk, and eventually tell jokes about how bad that one thing used to hurt, feel proud about how that really scary thing we did, isn’t scary at all anymore.

And for those wondering about how things turned out with my partner, he’s okay. It appeared that he had a slight form of a heart attack, but his heart is otherwise, healthy and he’s out of the hospital and on the mend. He’s looking at making some lifestyle changes and ways to better manage his stress.

We’re all learning and growing. Through this event I am reminded of just how short and precious life is. To hold and make space for my tender parts, and allow my true self to shine.

If you’d like to receive an energy session to help you with your tender, soft parts, contact me to book a session. I love sharing this evolutionary, life-changing work.

With deep love,

Lisa

November Newsletter

Hello Beloveds,

Happy belated Thanksgiving! I hope your day of thanks was filled with gratitude, the ones you love, and yummy food.

Last month I mentioned how I was the lucky winner of 2 big financial lessons, and how I went through a process of pretty intense emotions (anger, rage) and then finally after much resistance and feeling like I had no where else to go, surrendered and handed both situations over to God.

Well I’m here to report this surrender and handing over to God thing works. One of the situations involved my insurance company. I cut my finger open pretty bad this summer and my partner had to take me to the emergency room for stitches. When I arrived I gave them my insurance card and they admitted me, I figured all was fine since my insurance covers me to go anywhere – even if they are a non-provider – in the state of an emergency.

Fast forward 2 months and my insurance calls me, saying they don’t have a contract with the hospital I went too, so I have to work with a 3rd party to try to get the hospital to discount or cover the charges. Ummm okay… I go through that grueling process for another 2 months, only to be denied by the hospital. They are unwilling to discount or write off my charges. My 3rd party account manager says their is nothing more he can do, he advises me to contact the hospital myself to see if I can sway them and make an appeal with my insurance company.

Insert heavy sighs and what feels like pulling my hair out as I try to work with the hospital to see about financial assistance on my own, while I also go through the appeals process with my insurance. But I can’t seem to get anywhere, the hospital won’t my return calls and my insurance isn’t budging.

Then I start to share this situation with others and begin reflecting on, “what if I gave up my resistance? I wonder what would happen if I surrendered, would it shift the energy?” One of my teachers reminded me to take responsibility for my part in the situation, that although yes, these other parties weren’t exactly doing their job, but I wasn’t either. After all, it was my name on the insurance card, it was my policy and I did receive care from the hospital.

These types of situations can get tricky. It can be so easy to blame issues on others when we really are being wronged. And in this situation, I have no doubt that I was being wronged, however I had a part in it too, and I wasn’t getting anywhere by playing the victim card. That’s the thing about being the victim, we get stuck, it truly gives us no options but to sink down into our wounded-ness and in my instance, pout that these big companies were trying to hurt me. Yuck. It didn’t feel good, and it offered no resolutions.

However, once I took full responsibility for my part, a whole new world of options and possibilities showed up. At once I knew the solution for the whole thing.

My Higher Self said: Surrender. Hand this over to God. Hand it over again and again. When you get triggered by it, hand it over. Offer it up to all of Creation to hold and nurture and take care of. God can come up with miracles your human brain could never fathom. Let go and let God. And so I did.

Well I kid you not, right when I did that things started to shift. I could just feel how the energy started to redirect, from against me, to flowing with me. From opposition, to holding the paradox. From seeing different sides, to seeing the Wholeness of the situation – including me, the insurance company, the hospital, all the people involved – that nothing needed to be fixed, it was already complete. I went from being so mad at the hospital and insurance company, to all is well and taken care of.

Then the miracles started to show up in solid form. A few days later I got onto my hospital account portal and my balance had gone to zero. Yes I said ZERO!!!! All of a sudden it showed an adjustment of the full amount and it had been cleared out. Completely. Entirely. CLEARED OUT.

My account manager from the 3rd party (who was off the case by then but because he was also appalled at how my case was being handled by the hospital) also saw it was now 0 and called to tell me, the hospital wrote off the charges, you owe nothing!!!!

I am amazed by the power of surrender and handing over things to God. I share this story as an example of how you too, can use this same method for anything, large or small. We all have access and connection to the power of the Divine, I am not any different from you. Being connected to the Divine is our God-given birth right, and when we remember that God is within us, and we are within God, we come back home to ourselves and life flows and feels sacred.

When I’m practicing this, I wake up feeling deeply blessed and grateful to be alive and for my life and all those that cross my path. Truly I remember that this is what Living feels like. This is what we came here to do and be. That only love is real and we are infinitely connected to that love like the leaves were once attached to the trees.

This Thanksgiving, I am utterly so grateful for the power of God. My willingness to surrender, and my integrity to take responsibility. I bow in gratitude to you, my clients, friends and family who I get to love and serve and who add so much richness to my life.

I’m curious,

What would you like to surrender and give over to God? Do you believe in miracles? Did you know those who believe in miracles receive them, and those who don’t, don’t?

If you’d like support in returning to your God-self, connecting with Spirit, giving love and rest to your body and a space for your emotions, I’d love to be of service to you in a healing session. Reply to this email to chat or schedule.
