Crystal Essence Energy.. Is it magic or is it science?  Why is it so hard for us to recognize the benefits of the unseen, the energy that exists all around us?  In fact there is not one space in our universe that is not filled with substance.  Science is now proving what we in the esoteric world have known all along… energy exists everywhere and that energy has power.

Crystals like everything else in our world have energy and each crystal has its own energy signature just as each one of us has our own fingerprint.  We are each individuals and so are crystals.  Crystals have different family groups or chemical make up which causes them to have specific frequencies of energy, however within that group (ie: fluorite, quartz, tourmaline)  each individual crystal has its own unique personality or frequency if you bother to get to know it.

I have been working with crystals for over 30 years and in that time I have gotten to know a lot of crystals but a few have made themselves know to me in a much more powerful way.  We have connected and in that connection I have gained new insights into both the crystalline world and into my own world and my place in it.

I have recently been working with Crystal Essences with guidance from my crystal friends and am finding the benefit that they can provide for us in flesh and blood form.  We humans hold within our very cells crystalline substances in the form minerals that we need for our very existence.  Everything is energy and at the energetic level it is easy to move and transform, essences made from crystals can tap into the space of no matter and benefit us, the user.

Crystal Essences can work much faster on the spiritual, emotional and mental levels as they have not solidified into the physical realm, however they can be extremely beneficial for any dis-ease that has manifested physically as well, it just may take a little longer.  Crystals and the essences created with them are a gift that we can use to heal on every level.  Since we are ourselves crystalline, the healing energy transmitted to our cells by the crystal essences are easily received.

Is it magic or is it science?  If it is repeatable… perhaps it is science.  I think in the coming years we will be hearing more about crystal medicine and its many benefits.  Already science and technology are using crystals to make smaller and smaller devices to benefit humanity.  The crystalline world has much to offer us if we allow it.  I invite you to discover the benefits you can receive from the crystalline world by visiting my website and checking out my new line of Crystal Essences, crystal courses and services  www.inlightenwellness.com.

Looks like summer has finally arrived in the Pacific Northwest and it is glorious!  I know some of you are on the east coast and you have been living through the heat and humidity for some time now.   I know this too will change soon.  For now though I am going to enjoy myself, right where I am.

Whatever the outside circumstances of your world you can choose to be happy and enjoy life, or not.  If you give your power away to anything outside of you, even the weather, then you will find yourself powerless.  You have the right to stand up for yourself, claim your power and live your life empowered not by your outside world but by your inner knowing.

Whatever life serves you, chose to see it as an opportunity not a drudgery.  “Being” patient and kind with yourself and loving what shows up.  Sometimes things show up that were completely unexpected and you can be surprises and overjoyed by the moment.  The trick is to be open, if you are all caught up in the stuff going on around you, you might just miss the gifts along the way.

Since the Dog Days of Summer are with us for a little while longer, stay calm, stay cool and collected and let the world do what it will without you being caught in it.  Stay positive and maybe a little magic will show up unexpected and right when you need it.


Life is a moment by moment adventure.  Are you enjoying it?

As I allow myself to see each moment in my life as an opportunity rather than an obligation I am moving out of being the victim of circumstance and into the creator and explorer of my life!

As the creator I get to choose what each moment will be… a burden or an adventure, the choice has always been mine.  I admit, It has not always felt like my choice, in fact it has mostly felt like I was caught in some disastrous wild, raging wind with no chance at changing the direction.  But… what if we decided to jump off, stop the ride and just BE?  Most of us just do not know that we can stop it.

Now that we have stopped the forward thrusting, out-of-control momentum, we have a choice to either jump on again or change direction.  I choose to change direction but this time do it with focused intention.  Choosing the life I want instead of the one created out of past beliefs and imposed dogma.  What if I chose to see life from the place of Love, Peace, Joy, Fun, Passion, what if…?

Instead of looking at what is, choosing to move into what could be…  Imagine the possibility.  Creating  a life of wonder and magic.

I do not know what you will choose, you have free will.  I am going to choose in this moment a life of pure wonder… Will you join me?


These are important times.  We must move into a state of active Peace! It is up to us to change ourselves and then the world , each of us individually moving out of fear and into our power.

In these times of tumultuous news with earthquakes, threats of nuclear contamination in Japan and threats of War in Libya, I recommend that you center yourself and place yourself in a space of LOVE. If this is elusive to you think of someone you have a deep connection with, (it may be a child, a spouse, a pet, maybe it is nature, trees, a great forest) whatever it is for you I ask you to focus on it NOW.  Take a deep breath and let the feelings of this connection fill you up, moving you out of fear and into a state of peace.  Imagine what the world would be like if each one of us were continually in a deep state of peace and love.

The more we engage in the mass fear, the more we contribute to it. Remove yourself from contributing to fear and be a force of peace and love by moving into and contributing to peace and love.   If this is a challenge for you, there are many guides and teachers that are present and able to teach you how to hold this state of peaceful awareness. I am happy to connect you with a teacher or guide if one does not show up into your awareness.

We are in a time in our world today that requires us to focus on what we want our world to be, not what we see with our physical eyes. There is a great calling upon us to move out of fear and into the active state of peace, becoming a peace agent in the world.

I am sending out the call for all PEACE AGENTS to stand up, be counted and hold steady. We can and will be a force for good and usher in the new energies of peach upon the earth.  Are you ready to hold with us?

There are many teachings that prepare you to be a Peace Agent,  one of them is Reiki. Reiki is a powerful and gentle energy that deeply relaxes the physical form and calms the emotional / mental as well.  Reiki can help you to usher in your own state of peace and love and then send that out into the greater world.  I love Reiki for this because it is something that is readily available around the world as there are many practitioners.  If you would like to locate a Reiki Practitioner in your area you can go to   http://www.reikimembership.com/MembershipListing.aspx this is through the International Center for Reiki Training.

Moving out of fear and not allowing the current news to control how you feel is the first step to becoming a Peace Agent.  It then requires you to take action, get training if needed and then start to actively move into the world and Hold steady.

Are YOU up for the challenge? Are you willing to move beyond the stress and fear of the day and into Peace, Love, Joy and ACTION to make this world a better place?

It starts with just one of us making a stand, will you stand with me?

I am so grateful for all of the many friends, associates and family who continually inspire me.

Today I learned a very powerful lesson;  The level of my ability to recieve is directly proportionate to my ability to give freely.

I use to be the most generous person, I was constantly giving little gifts to people I loved.  When I grandmother passed away I seemed to stop giving.  I remember someone telling me (at least what I heard) that I was giving to get…love, attention, power, you name it.  All of this happened around the same time and so I just stopped.  It was not a consious thought to stop, but I did.  I grew empty, sad, lost.

What I realized today is that giving brought me great JOY and Happiness.  What I stopped was my happiness, my joy.  I was not giving to get from the other person, I was giving to feel the internal Self-Love, the pure unadulterated joy of watching as someone took pleasure in the moment.  I was reveling in there delight because it brought me delight in my heart.  It reminded me of how much I am loved by ME!

As you allow yourself to receive the gift you give to yourself by your generosity, open up to and allow yourself to receive the joy. Tune into your feelings.  What is it you are feeling?  Revel in the joy of the gift to you, Self Love!

Happy Holiday

I have been pondering the idea of time lately, it is ever moving and yet there are moments where it seems to stand still.  Why is it that when you are younger it never seems to move fast enough and when you get older it never seems to slow down?  These are the things I find myself pondering in the recesses of my mind.

I was thinking this morning about the “Lazy Days of Summer”  you know, those days where time slows down and we all get to relax, sit back and enjoy life…. STOP EVERYTHING….what happened to those days?  I really want to know.

I think what might have happen to those wonderful times, is that we forgot to relax, just sit back and watch as life ticked by.  When did we get so wrapped up in being busy, going here and there, getting this and that?  As I was pondering what happened to those wonderful times it occurred to me that maybe, just maybe I could bring them back into my life.

So, how do we unplug?  How do we stop the constant thrust forward and just breathe?  B-R-E-A-T-H-E!  I have decided to experiment with this and allow that warmth of the sun to seep into my pores and feel what it is like to stop and relax, enjoy and experience the moments as time just moves by.

I am not sure how I got to the point of the ever moving, doing, accomplishing, task oriented, do…do..doing of life….Argh!  How did we all get there?  I think we have forgotten how important it is to enjoy our lives, the wonderful moments  where nothing of any real significance is happening but that moment is the most important thing ever!  If we can just sit with ourselves and BE.  No TV, Radio, Computer, Car or Job….just that delicious moment…and the next …and the next moment.

I think maybe we have become addicted to the speed, the rush, the ever moving, changing excitement.  I’ll bet that if you allowed yourself the moment to experiencve how each feel, the rush and the peace, you would at first want the rush..it is familiar,  comfortably uncomfortable. But, if you can allow yourself the experience of the peaceful moment, allow yourself the time to let it seep into your very soul, you would not want to let it go.  there is a profound rest in those moments that I long to return to.

I invite you to give yourself the gift of the moment, allow yourself to experience the magic!

I just sent in my video for the ‘Your Own Show” on Oprah’s network, what an adventure and growth experience it was.  You know me, I am all about growth opportunities, pushing myself beyond my comfort zone.  I want to take every advantage the universe provides for my growth experience, I say “why waste the trip”!

So I purchased a Kodak Zi8 camera, got my tripod ready, sat down and I was off…  Ok so there is not much memory in the camera and the card that came with it had to be mailed.  So… I had to wait a day or so before I could film.  I purchased a little Kodak desktop trip, not so great, broke right at the start.  So I had my large tripod, it’s for a medium format camera, a little over sized but worked just great.

Card arrives, inserted in the camera and again I am ready to shoot.  I shot in the bedroom, I shot in the office, I shot in my client room, in the living room, you name it I shot there (OK, I drew the line at the bathroom).  it was all about lighting and the perfect background, after all this was Oprah and I was auditioning for my “OWN” show.

What I learned;  I am not a producer or a director.. I gave up looking for video perfection and decided that I was enough, me just as I am…after all that is what they are going to get if I get on the show so might as well give it to them right out the gate.

If you had asked me a year ago to submit a video for a show, a reality show no less, I would have said you were nuts, I did not have the self confidence to do something like that and what if I actually got on, I would have to be on TV!  I got a wonderful opportunity to see how far i have come and that the self work I have been doing has really paid off.  The really amazing thing is that I have no attachment to however this turns out.  Obviously I would not have sent in my video if I did not truly want to be on the show but I also am OK with what ever turn up.  The most important thing I did was showed up and played the game, beyond that…it is gravy!  I did not talk myself out of it, tell myself I was not good enough, let that little voice in my head sabotage my fun, That was the greatest gift.  The realization that I can have fun in life, play the game but not get caught in the game along the way.  What an amazing realization!  I have finally moved out of the crab pot and have become an observer in my own life.  What a cool thing….NOW THE REAL FUN BEGINS!

I am often asked, “What is it you do?”  I am always struck by that question.  It should be simple, after all I talk about my work all of the time.   I am a certified Kalos Health Facilitator and what that means is that I assist people in “getting to the cause” of dis-ease (lack of ease) in their Body/Mind.  Sounds simple doesn’t it?  Interestingly most people do not know what I mean. Interesting but not surprising.  You see most people go to a healthcare provider and that provider looks at them as a statistic.  They come in with a symptom and the provider looks at them and based on the majority of people that present with that symptom they treat them according to the majority.  This is what we have become accustomed to so we do not see anything wrong with it.  Well I do!

What if we went to our Health care facilitator and they said to us “I need to get an overall view of the current state of your body, I am going to do a non-invasive check up using muscle testing and trigger point testing, using your body’s meridian system to identify the deficiencies or weaknesses in your body”.  Right away you know they are working with your body, you are not a statistic.  Next they let you know that based on what you have presented and your original concern, your body is communicating to you that it is not in balance.  It does not stop there, the facilitator then asks your body, again using muscle testing, to communicate what it’s first priority is to correct the imbalance.  Sounds good so far, right?  Are you getting the idea that this is different?

Based on the body’s priority’s in healing the facilitator follows and corrects each priority as it arises.  In this way the client and their body are in control of what is needed for optimal health at all times.  Our bodies are so intelligent and they know what they need to be well, they simply need a facilitator that can communicate what is needed.  A facilitator that has the intent to “get to the cause” in the most efficient, effective manner possible.

I work with clients who come in with all sorts of concerns, issues and complaints.  No issue, concern or complaint is too small or too large and none is more important than another. You see the issue, concern and complaint are connected to an individual who is looking for assistance, they each have an underlying cause and that means, as a facilitator, I want to assist my clients in getting to that cause and correcting it.  I work to correct, shift, move and clear the imbalance in the Body/Mind.  When the cause is identified I assist my client in immeasurable ways by moving them closer to balance and wellness.

Most of my clients have been to several providers before coming to see me.  They have been treating the symptom and not the client as an individual.  You see once the cause is addressed and dealt with the problem no longer exists. This is true healing!

As you can see my answer to the question “What do you do?” is not a simple or short one.  My work is so complex, yet simple, and so far reaching that to casually say, “ I help people get well by getting to the cause” although good, does not speak to the profound healing that is possible with what I do.

There are a few Kalos Health Facilitators in the US and Canada but we need more.  I see this as the way we need to be healing now and in the future and that means we need more facilitators.  I am currently working on developing an educational center to train Kalos Health facilitators and lay people so that we can begin to heal on a greater level.  The education center will be located in the greater Seattle area and I hope to provide continued training for those wanting to become certified.

Currently I am offering Kalos courses in Shoreline, WA and I hold a monthly group to support those who are currently taking courses.  For information on upcoming courses and workshops please visit my website at www.inlightenwellness.com.

I also work with individuals looking to heal on all levels at my office in Shoreline, WA.

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, I welcome your ideas.

Funny how as we go through our day we encounter obstacles to success around corners we did not even know existed. Has this happened to you?  It happens to me when I least expect it.  That is the way of it, if we expected it, it would not be getting in our way, we would be aware.

I am talking about those pesky little subconscious thoughts that creep in at the most inopportune times and sabotage us from moving forward head long into our lives and our success.

Recently I was preparing for a new class I am teaching, “Prosperity & Money”. It is about getting to the cause of what is in the way of peoples prosperity, their healthy relationship with money.  This is an area that so many people are struggling with and I decided that I was going to provide a course that would assist people to finally get to the truth and find out where their money/prosperity programs and beliefs started.  Since my job is to assist my clients in finding out the programs, beliefs and emotions that are getting in the way of their total health, wealth and happiness it did not seem like such a stretch to create this course.  I was going along just fine until I was awakened by that little voice  (the foreign saboteur) that kept saying, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?  What do you think you are doing? STOP! What will people think.  You are not qualified.  Maybe none of you have had this voice in your head before and maybe you have and can relate.

This is the very moment when most people are stopped from moving forward. The voice gets the best of them and they believe it to be the truth, and it is for the moment.  Once again it has won and we are put back in our place.  How many times has this happened to you?  Do you stop, give up settle for the familiar inertia?  This is where most people resign themselves to never getting ahead.  As you can see, I know this voice really well, as do you.

This is the critical moment, do I listen to the voice? Or, do I muster all of the courage I can and push forward?  No one would blame me if I sunk back into the wall and continued the status-quo.  After all everyone hears it and they all understand, Right?

Well…what should I do? I could kick myself in the butt and say don’t be an idiot, you have worked too hard and too long to build your reputation, you are respected, you have responsibility.  Oops, what just happened? The voice is using another tactic!  Just another way to sabotage me since the first tact did not seem to work.  Are you starting to get the idea that maybe, just maybe, your perceived lack of success was never yours to begin with?

The foreign saboteur is so subtle, so sneaky, so insidious and it tries every possible way to keep us from moving in the direction of our spirit! So what do we do now?

Let me tell you what I did and do every moment of every day. I stop, take a deep breath and remember right in this moment, and this moment and this moment, I am doing the very best I know how to do.  It may take me a few tries before I can conquer the voice but if I am diligent and remember that it is not me, IT IS NOT ME..,then and only then can I recognize I have won the battle, maybe not the war, but certainly the battle, at least for now. Next time I may let it get the best of me, I have to be OK with that, but the only way it wins is if I give up.  I don’t know about you but I have fought too hard and too long and I am committed to my moving forward.  I am committed to my success and the only person I measure my success to and with is myself.  If I continue to move forward towards my chosen destiny then I will always win.  I will always prevail.

So, what about you, are you finally going to realize the voice in your head that is keeping you from your success is not you? Are you finally going to start being kinder to yourself, gentler and more compassionate?  I would recommend a good healthy dose of self-honoring, self-celebration and self-love.  After all, you chose to be here, to experience all you could and that means success too.  Life is certainly a process and I intend to enjoy the ride!

Here’s to our Success!

Happiness is a state of mind.  We hear this all of the time.  Well, what if you do not know what makes you happy or what is keeping you from your happiness?  I am certain that if I knew what was making me unhappy that I would at least be curious and try to figure it out.   Of course, everyone wants to be happy.  Wouldn’t you?  After all none of us wants to be unhappy.  Those people that say it is a state of mind are either out of their minds or maybe, just maybe they know something that we don’t.

What if it were as simple as finding out the under lying belief system that is blocking us from knowing our own path to happiness.  It is as if someone long ago said “You can only be this happy and no more”  It is like a set point on happiness.  What if you could change that “set point” and choose how and what level of happiness you were going to have.

I am big on choice and I know that there is a simple and easy way for you to be happy in this moment.  There is a technique that helps you to discover the decision you made long ago that is getting in the way, that belief that is holding you back from living your life full of joy and happiness.  A decision made in a fraction of a second, with limited knowledge, limited information and limited comprehension.  A decision made when you were small and did not have the tools to comprehend the ramifications of your decision and how long it would be effecting your life.

The technique is called Kalos Health Facilitation.  A Kalos Helath Facilitator can take you back to the time of the decision and help you to see what happened, who was involved and what you decided in the moment to be the truth.  “The Truth Shall Set You FREE”  is an accurate statement and one that I see confirmed over and over again in my practice.  Clients are transformed and are living lives free from the limits of their past.  Free to choose a new reality and live each day knowing they are capable of real Happiness in their lives.

Isn’t it time for you to discover your true happiness?  When you are ready, I am here to help you to do just that.
