RamblingsWe survived!! At least the doomsday soothsayers are
scratching their heads and wondering what really happened and all those folks
who invested in reinventing a survival bunker certainly did not get their
money’s worth. I am not sad at their
failure to realize their vision. . Personally, I think 12/12/12 and 21/12/12
unfolded in the exact and perfect way
the Universe intended. Many people
are now looking at their roles/decisions/choices in their life in a different way and waking
up to realizations that perhaps what they had thought was true for them may be
changing and other, more exciting options, are opening up for them.
AND, they are not fighting these potential changes and possibilities;
they are embracing them. I am a
prime example of this.
Last month I wrote about how I was now
moving into the flow of writing my book specifically around my experiences with
people around their crossing over [dying] process. Well, it is still true only it is once
again being moved to the shelf hopefully for only a brief period. I am learning not to fight the changes as they flow through
and around me, but to appreciate how thoughts feel in my body. In other words, do I feel excited and eager
to follow through or do I feel cautious and not sure if “it” is the right thing
for me in that moment. In other words, if it
doesn’t feel right in my gut, it probably isn’t going to feel right in my
heart! A friend of mine, G, brought together a small group of women
who are all wanting to write a book – actually most of us have several on our
minds. Naturally the book I wrote
about last month was right up front in my mind when I went to our first
meeting. There was one critical
element that came up in this meeting; this was to be about publishing an
“e-book”. Hmm, not sure if you have
done that, but it certainly calls for the publication of books that are smaller
and more condensed and succinct .
I left the meeting I was very pleased but as I began the 40 minute drive home my
mind began to retaliate at the idea of putting boundaries around the amount of
information I would include; after all, this book was about real people and real
events with very serious meaning. I
just could not boil it down, I just couldn’t do it! The pure truths and essences were way too
important. Not that e-books don’t honour
the content, it was just my issue around that!When I got home, I sat and brainstormed
some ideas and came up with two possibilities. So the first one I am going to work on is
based on a 3 hour workshop that I have presented many, many times that people seemed to really
like. “Relief at Your Fingertips” is about
sharing different ways that individuals, untrained in any kind of energy work,
can help themselves. It was originally
borne five years ago when I was asked by Hopespring Cancer Centre in Kitchener
if I could present a workshop that would empower their clients to help
themselves. So that is the ebook I
will be working on. I could write more
but I think I will wait until it is ready to be offered out in e-publish
form. I am guessing sometime in the
Spring. You will all know when it is
available on my website – TRUST ME, YOU WILL KNOW!!!!
TOOLS OF MY TRADE!The other “unfoldment” began last August while I was working with a
client through grief around her daughter’s passing two years earlier. It was without doubt an extraordinary
experience for both of us and was orchestrated by my guide “Soultalker” who
provided very clear instructions on how to work with her using very specific
visions of white light rain, white
butterflies [meaning transformation and/or rebirth] and spirit essence.
That night I had a dream and
was shown a beautiful stained glass panel that incorporated all of the visuals I
had been given and directed to use during the day with my client. [So, here I apologize to all of you who
have heard this story – several times!
There are many who are not aware so please, I ask your patience one more time!!] I was instructed to make this stained glass
panel – a process that I have not done in at least 6 years. Being up for the challenge I did just that;
recreating what I had seen in a paper design format – cutting paper patterns and
then the glass patterns – foiling, soldering -
you name it. While I was
engaged in the creation of this piece, entitled “Spirit Rising”, I learned a lot about creating stained glass
much of which was a remembering from what my original teacher had taught me but
also some new learnings as well.
Soultalker is a loving and insistent taskmaster but it was finally
completed. During the process I was
also instructed that I would [note here, not “could”, but “would”] offer this
type of creative glass to others as a way of holding in memory a loved one or a
special event unique to them.To say I am pleased with the outcome is
putting it mildly. I had the nerve to
actually submit “Spirit Rising” into a juried art show and was accepted. The show is a joint effort by Unity Kitchener
and Alzheimer Kitchener January 18th
7-9pm. Please see the link for
additional information.http://unitykitchener.com [Walls of Art
Memory Show]. Since this happened I have been honoured
to work with another client who had lost two children at birth. I contacted these two children [my medium
side] and what a joy it was to see her face light up as they validated who they
were through experiences I would have not known about. When we finished our session, she
commissioned a panel. I am currently
working on its design and I know she will love it – it is as unique as she and
her connection with her children in spirit are.To see “Spirit Rising” and a sampling of
my other stained glass pieces which are my custom creations, with the exception
of the lampshade, please go to my website www.soultalker.org and the banner on the left side called “Stained Glass Art”. If you are interested in commissioning a
unique piece of inspired stained glass art, please give me a call and we can
talk about what your vision is.

MONTHLY MEETINGS FOR LEARNING AND
With the addition of The Gathering, I realized that
I am offering three monthly meetings.
The Gathering is being reborn
after being in dormancy for near 2-/2 years primarily through requests to have
it started up again. The Dowsing is six
months old and is being well received by those who are practiced dowsers and
those who are wanting to learn. The
Metaphysics & Mediumship group has been moved to a monthly evening meeting
to accommodate those who are working during the day. So, read on and learn more. You may be interested in one or perhaps
all. Regardless , we would love to have
you join us.
The Kitchener/Waterloo Monthly
Dowsing Group is off to a great start, with four well attended meetings under
its belt! Mark Wednesday, January 16, 2013 for the next
The focus of the KW Group will
be on practicing and learning the art of dowsing. On occasion I would also like
to invite other experienced dowsers to come in and talk about their experiences.
If you are interested, please let me know. I will be assisted by a friend of
mine, Irene Grozelle. Cost is minimal, $10 per evening. We will be running the 3rd Wednesday of every
month from 7-9 pm Location: Community of Christ, 414
Fischer-Hallman Rd. [intersection of Hwy 8 and Fischer-Hallman], Kitchener, ON
It is always helpful to know
numbers for setting/staging the room where we will be meeting. If you are coming, please confirm by emailing me at
- Here are some dowsing websites that you may find interesting:
www.lettertorobin.org - revised instructions for dowsing for
beginners and onward by Walt Woods, a master dowser from the USA, now in
spirit. Excellent tutorial.
- www.canadiandowsers.org Canadian Society of Dowsers – a national
group with subgroups and independent local groups [such as the KW dowsers]. They
hold several conferences a year
- www.raymongrace.org A bit of a renegade, and even though I have
not met him personally, he is one of my favourite! We will be watching some of his training
DVD’s – I have notes already to go with these so you just have to watch and
enjoy! Then practice of

for some more additional information and some the work I have been involved in as a dowser.
Lovingly called “the M&M” Group.
This is a group open to sharing and practicing various psychic and
mediumship practices. We meet for two
hours and I try to make sure we spend at least half of that time doing readings
and giving messages to each other.
you are curious and have no experience, please don’t let that keep you
away. The regulars in this group are
more than open to helping those who are new to these skills. It always amazes me when we have new people
attending who say, “I have never done this and this is all I got”. So, the fact that they “got” something is
wonderful, but, they quite often get more than anyone else. “Spirit” inspiration, I am sure.
When this group started we met on a weekly basis on Wednesday
mornings. Over time, busy schedules
made that timeline difficult to honour, so we moved to every other week. We have continued to meet on this time line
yet I felt there were many who were not able to join us so, during our last
meeting just before Christmas it was discussed that we move to an evening
offering starting with one evening a month.
Should you or perhaps some of your friends wish to meet more than this,
we can talk about it.
Location: 104 Monteagle
Cres.,Kitchener. Timing: The
second Monday of the month from 7-9 PM.
Starting January 14.
Fee is $10.00 per session and attendance is open. Confirmation of
attendancerequested to my email firstname.lastname@example.org for planning
While I am the primary facilitator, I encourage others attending to share
their understandings and techniques they have learned along the way. There will
be lots of time for practicing your psychic and mediumship abilities. You do not
have to have had experience, just a desire. Practicing in a group environment
offers a deeper experience and the energy required goes up with the number of
people participating. Most of all, it is FUN and you meet great
people!!! And of course, I have only mentioned the psychic/mediumship portion - lots to learn from others who are facilitators of healing.
“The Gathering” ran for nearly three
years when I first moved to the Kitchener /Waterloo area. When I started it, there were very few groups of its kind and it
was met with great enthusiasm. My
“circle of influence” – basically, those I knew at the time, was very small but
it did grow and spawned many other groups as well. At the time, I was fine with this
“spawning” but these groups have now dissipated and there are many others who
are now seeking to connect in a “like minded” group to explore other
possibilities beyond that which is normally accepted.
Our first new Meeting of Minds, will be
on January 28, and will
run thereafter on the 4 Monday of the month. Location is at my home, 104 Monteagle
Crescent, Kitchener. Fee is $20.00 per person and I would ask that
if you are coming, please let me know via email. Different topics will be offered by those
who are knowledgeable in their field for learning and expanding your present
understanding and a chance to ask questions.
Also, this group offers you an opportunity to network and pass out your
business cards and brochures.
of the nature of The Gathering, we will
be meeting from 6:30 to 9:30 with a ½ hour break in between for light
refreshments and networking.
January 28 , our Guest Speaker is Norah Nasturas an
experienced astrologer who will be sharing her passion. see http://norahsastrology.weebly.com/
Norah’s talk/sharing will provide
information about how and why this "mysterious" art of Astrology works, and how
this new year, 2013, will touch us
following the energies of each individual personal zodiacal sign. If we know how to take advantage in
relationship with timing, potential or path, our lives will be more easy. The
most important things Astrology give us, are frames of time, organization/priorities and
directions in the 3 levels: Body, Mind, Spirit/soul.
Norah began her study out of curiosity in 1977 first
in Europe, Switzerland and since 2000 she has studied in India learning to go
deeper. Norah says “I really
think Astrology is the only way to learn about ourselves in the most
objective way and to know about the person we are and our relationship
with the universe - Microcosms and Macrocosms
