Somatization, A Quick Guide

What is Somatization? Somatization is the result of repressed emotions migrating from the emotional energy field into the field of the physical body. We can all recognize the cause-effect relationship between stubbing a toe and the toe turning blue, we also need a toolset for recognizing physical pain that originated from a difficult or painful emotion or thought.

The Books On My Nightstand

People often ask what books I’m reading. Right now, I keep my nightstand covered with books old and new. I only retain books I want to read again. All others land in a neighborhood book kiosk, or at the famous Powell’s Bookstore here in Portland, Oregon.

Conscious Activism

Seven Practices for Conscious Activism

These are our Now Times. We’re here now, stepping through the rubble of false paradigms of safety, acceptance, freedom, sovereignty, equality, stewardship, collaboration and connection. Trampled, scattered, desecrated relics of the bubble dream of the Then Times.


Before You Make Resolutions…

Here’s the thing: Now is a great time to reflect on your life and on what you want to create and on who you want to be. And it is a great time to use that knowledge to fuel changes in behavior. New Year’s Eve reminds us to do this work.

Resolutions Don’t Work – Here’s Why

How do people create resolutions? Resolutions encourage you to Re-solve. The formula: review past choices, actions and behaviors, perhaps chastise yourself for the failure to achieve, and try, try, try again.


Triggered? Let’s Clear That

If you know what patterns, behaviors and triggers you’ve got, but don’t know what to do to effect a change, you’re at their mercy until you figure out how to release them. So, would you rather live with them or release them?

Using Your Energy for Conscious Activism

Which Chakra Fuels Your Activism? Feeling Outraged? Scared? Disenfranchised? With the change in politics, are you called to act? Check yourself so that your activism is conscious, clear and coherent.

A Word on Worldviews

The recent Presidential election has upended values, assumptions and beliefs that many hold dear. It’s hard to avoid the firestorm of reaction, despair, anger and fear resulting from the election. My work does not include the role of political analyst or pundit. Praise be! My work is to teach coherence. To help people understand how to […]

Scrabble Word Hard Work

The Hard Work is Upon Us

If you are an energy healing practitioner, bodyworker, therapist or any kind of healing practitioner, I know your clients are leaning heavily on you these days. I heard that leading up to the election, people who typically see their therapist once a month have gone once a week, and clients who typically schedule once a week are going every day. So, […]

Psychic Awareness Intrusion

Managing Uninvited Psychic Awareness

A couple of weeks ago, a healer shared the quote I’ve paraphrased below on Facebook: No matter where we are when we meet, within 5 minutes I’ll know your pain, issues, hidden feelings and emotions. Because I’m a reader. It’s who I am and it’s what I do. No. No. No. Not ok. Healers must […]

Break Bad Habits

Got Persistent Bad Habits? What To Do…

Ever Heard of Spiritual Bypass? A client contacted me to talk about a problem she was experiencing. After summarizing her situation, she shared what she was doing to address it spiritually. I heard her describing a spiritual bypass. She was: talking with her guides and angels writing affirmations and posting them conspicuously throughout her home listening to inspirational talks reading inspirational messages daily watching […]
