What if You Didn’t Need to Surrender Your Pet? (The Economy)

I made this video after watching a PBS video about overcrowded animal shelters due to the economy.

I address ways to not buy into the mainstream narrative of poverty-consciousness and doom. And I offer alternatives to surrendering pets to shelters or abandoning them in parking lots.

Your pet is your best friend or a family member. Remember this. Plan ahead, if you feel that you’re going to lose your employment. Learn new skills. Hire a life coach prior to losing your job. Sell belongings you no longer need or could do without so that you can keep your pet even during hard times.

5 Benefits Dogs Receive From Pet Daycare

Photo by sarah de souza on Pexels.com

No one wants a restless or needy dog. Animal behavior experts mentioned time and time again, that dogs, especially high-energy dogs require mental and physical exercise. Dogs also enjoy running, playing, and most dogs enjoy joining a pack of dogs to interact.

The problem is some dog owners work long hours. By the time they return home at the day’s end they’re too exhausted to take dogs for a walk. But at the same time, the people benefit from having pets (stress relief, companionship, and bonding time which might occur mainly on weekends and time off from work).

Dog (aka) doggy daycare provides a solution for busy pet owners and in a way resembles daycare for children. There are even kindergarten for dogs in Japan (look for the videos on YouTube). There are varying types of dog daycare from the old fashion kennels and an indoor play area and an outdoor play area to dog ranches, dog farms, and with Mo’s Mountain Mutts’ a school bus that transports the dogs to the Alaskan wilderness (also seen on YouTube).

Depending on your country or region, prices and scheduling for dog daycare vary. Shop around, visit the facilities, and see if you can watch the staff in action. Ask if you can schedule a visit with your dog to determine if that’s the right daycare for him or her.

As far as benefits, they are numerous. To keep this article short, I’ll list 5.

Physical Exercise

This is an obvious one. We all know what happens when a dog doesn’t get enough exercise. That usually sweet tempered fellow turns into a frenzied beast. But exercise provides more that physical stimulation. Exercise allows the dog to spend time in a natural environment, breathe fresh air and to take in all the scents of the neighborhood.

While enrolling your dog in daycare isn’t the only way for him to get exercise (dog walkers and dog sitters can provide this), you get more for your money because the dog daycare takes care of more needs than just exercise.

Mental Exercise

Depending on the daycare staff and philosophy, some daycare staff provide the dogs with puzzles or allow dogs to roam and play in packs where they resolve problems. Some daycare staff provide training for dogs too which also works their brains. Dogs enjoy learning something new and you might even call them lifelong learners. They also enjoy pleasing the trainer when they learn something new.

Companionship with Dogs and Other Humans

When you’re away at work, wouldn’t you feel better to know your dog isn’t sitting alone waiting for you to return. Most dogs will find ways to entertain themselves though and you might not be happy with the results. Dogs are pack animals and even if you think your dog is a loner, you might reconsider that after watching your shy dog open up to new adventures with companions.

The daycare provides each dog with opportunities to forge relationships with staff and other dogs. Just like human children, dogs can have best buddies too and their lives are enriched by it.

Structured Day

Studies have shown that dogs prefer structure as in having a schedule. This isn’t just true for feeding and walking times. A chaotic life free of structure might seem alright to a freewheeling human, but it’s not the same for dogs. They feel more safe and secure when they know what to expect during the course of their day and to know what is expected of them. Dog daycare provides structure as the day is usually divided into playtime, nap time, lunch time, etc…

The Bus Ride

Not all daycare centers provide a pick up service in the form of a bus or a van, although this trend is catching on. And given the cost of fuel, more than likely, this is an extra perk with a price tag (but then, I don’t really know). However, before you load your dog on the bus or van, ask if you can ride on the bus to see if safety and common sense are practiced. Do the dogs behave? Are they secured properly? How long is the bus ride? Can they handle nervous dogs? And is there a meet and greet or training involved to get the dogs to ride without incident (such as picking fights with other dogs)? Whose driving the bus? What’s this driver’s experience driving a bus?

As always, research daycare facilities and the offerings. Ask for testimonies, ask other dog owners (you know) where they send their dogs during the working hours. Look for press coverage, ratings, and visit the facilities to have a guided tour. Since dog daycare is becoming a competitive field, you might be able to negotiate a fair price or put together a package depending on the days of the week and hours your dog requires.

The dog daycare isn’t for everyone, but the dogs who stay at them tend to be happier and better adjusted. They are less likely to tear up your couch, dig holes in the yard, or become runners and escape artists. It’s like that Cyndi Lauper song with a change in lyrics, “Dogs just wanna have fun.”

Transforming Your Home into a Crystal Palace

Photo by Arnesh Yadram on Pexels.com

Are you someone who loves working with crystals and gemstones? Are you an energy-healer or an empath? You probably already have crystals in your home to create a sacred space, if not read on.

First, it’s important to realize that crystals and gemstones are powerful to work with and if you aren’t someone to watch your moods, thoughts, feelings, and words, then filling your home with crystals wouldn’t be in your best interest.

However, once you become a master of moods and realize the power of words and emotions, then finding the right crystals and the right placement for your home will enhance your life. And as always, know what your intentions before bringing in crystals (you can change your intentions later).

Second, if you’re going to commit to working with crystals, make sure you clear them by cleansing your space on a regular basis. You might even work with the Moon’s phases such as setting intentions with the New Moon and cleansing old energy with the Full Moon. You can use tuning forks and singing bowls to clear yourself and your space.

Third, keep in mind that some types of crystals and stones absorb energy, some project energy and some protect against unwanted energy. If you’re also going to bring in sound, chants, and other modalities, make sure that you are properly trained to avoid pitfalls with the crystals.

The Rise and Fall of Atlantis

While we enjoy adding new stones and crystals to our collection (collecting crystals and stones is a worldwide trend), if we don’t show respect and use caution with these powerful stones, we could create catastrophe, especially with millions of people including crystals in their homes and spiritual practice.

We have heard of the fall of Atlantis and the misuse of crystals that led to that fall. We are once again at the end of one age and the beginning of a new age. We have entered the Age of Aquarius and this age focuses on energy, including crystalline energy. We can either create a healing force using crystals intentionally for the highest good, or we can allow greed and the lust for power to take over which would once again destroy civilization. Let’s not repeat the mistakes of the past.

Creating a Crystal Palace

When I say crystal palace I’m not talking about building a house from crystals. Most people wouldn’t be able to afford that endeavor. However, we can create sacred spaces in our homes using crystals. Some people use Feng Shui to place their crystals. Others use Reiki and intuition. When you buy crystals research the crystals or stones first to see if they match your intention.

Ask yourself, “What is the purpose for bringing crystals into my home?” Are you creating a mediation space, a healing room, or are you using crystals to protect your home and the home’s inhabitants? Are you using crystals for spiritual growth or as part of an ascension process? Do you use the crystals to enhance spiritual communication? Or are you filling your home with crystals to create a healing space as part of a self-care situation?

Then decide which family of crystals you would like to align with. Are you looking to work with the quartz family or the calcite family? Is your preferred stone fluorite or lapis Lazuli or amethyst? What’s your budget? Expensive crystals are necessarily more powerful than inexpensive crystals or stones. The price of crystals and stones is determined by rarity, quality, and the harvesting of stones (ethnically harvested stones are more expensive but kinder to the Earth). The price is not determined by the power or uses for the crystals/stones.

Also, keep in mind that if you don’t want to completely transform your life, don’t bring Moldavite into your home.

Less is more when it comes to crystals and stones. You can fill bowls and plates with smaller stones or choose three large crystals to anchor the four corners of a room or space. I suggest finding stone encyclopedias and learning about the matrices of the stones and the ways each stone can serve you (and the stones might choose not to serve).

Safety Tips

If you have pets or young children, it wouldn’t be a good practice to fill your home with bowls and plates of crystals. Stones could be mistaken for candy (and many stones are toxic too) or an animal might ingest a stone and you would have an emergency situation. So, use common sense when displaying stones. Purchase larger stones that can’t easily be swallowed and place them in areas the pets and children won’t have access.

Personally, I would keep stones away from young children because some stones include asbestos, lead, radiation, and mercury just to name a few toxic chemicals found yes, in natural stones. Remember to wash your hands after handling stones and crystals.

If you wish to charge a glass of water with stones, do not immerse the stones in the water. Instead, place the stones on the outside of a clear glass of water. The stones will charge the water based on the intention you set.

Finally, research the powers of each stone or crystal. For instance, the black stones tend to ward off unwanted energy and offer protection. Clear crystals project energy so if you live in a dysfunctional household where people shout profanity and fill the home with resentment and then you place quartz crystals on a windowsill, you are projecting resentment and hostility to your community. This is where mindfulness comes in.

Final Words

If you would like to transform your home into a crystal palace (sacred space), then becoming mindful is key. Take responsibility for the energies you release into the world. If you tend to suffer from negativity and toxic thoughts, then get mental health counseling or coaching to resolve dominant negative thoughts and attitudes prior to working with crystals.

Crystals help us to manifest our thoughts into reality. So, if your dominant thoughts are doomsday scenarios, then adding crystals to your home at this time would be a grave mistake. Work on yourself, cleanse your space, and practice mindfulness. Then, living in a crystal palace will bring you peace and prosperity.

5 Benefits of Self-Reiki

Photo by Satoshi Hirayama on Pexels.com

When I studied Reiki the instructor recommended that her students practice Reiki on themselves once or twice a day. At first, I practiced Reiki twice a day, in the morning upon waking and then before going to sleep. And since that time (which was during the spring of 2020), I have not skipped a day.

Oh, there have been times when my session was only ten minutes because I was traveling and on one occasion, I landed in a homeless shelter for a night. But for the most part, I do each hand position for three minutes. Sometimes I go five minutes for the hand positions. I also modified the hand positions since my Reiki training.

Reiki is more than a modality or a healing tool. For me, and for many others, Reiki is a lifestyle. For those of us who practice Reiki on clients, we need to keep our chakras free of energy blockages. We also need to become the healer that heals themselves. In other words, we need to take care of our physical, mental, and emotional stuff so that we don’t dump on our clients or project our own pain or emotions onto them.

Here are my five reasons for practicing self-Reiki at least once a day.

Photo by Belle Co on Pexels.com


Reiki practitioners are empathic. We are sponges that take on other people’s problems. Some Reiki practitioners are also psychic and or are recovering co-dependents. They might come from abusive backgrounds or have suffered another type of trauma. How does anyone go through a lifetime without experiencing trauma?

We must take care of ourselves first so that we show up stronger for our clients. Plus, we get that extra boost to start or to end our day. Personally, I can do without any caffeine if I give myself a morning Reiki session. Set the intention that the Reiki boost your energy.

Practice Makes Perfect

When we practice on ourselves, we can experiment by adding other modalities such as using crystals or tuning forks. I also recommend keeping a Reiki journal to keep track of the combination of hand positions with crystals or sound healing tools.

Read books on Reiki and learn new meditations and hand positions. Try new approaches to keep your practice fresh and exciting. Remember that when you first practice on yourself and see the results, you can eventually share those same practices with your clients. Plus, the Reiki doesn’t feel stale or boring.

Reiki Cleanses the Aura

When we use Reiki on ourselves it’s a form of detoxing of our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. When we clear away the debris that comes to us from EMFs, bad food, or toxic energy from others, we are able to hear our intuition more clearly. We also hear the direction of our spirit guides and Reiki guides. I feel that’s especially important for healers who combine Reiki with angelic therapy. Clear the pathway for the benevolent spirits to enter.

Include Others in the Session

When I say include others, I’m not asking you to invite others to your home. This is about setting an intention of where the Reiki will flow. You can set the intention that others receive the Reiki at the beginning of the session or after you have built up the Reiki energy mid-way through the session. And you can send the Reiki to just about anywhere since Reiki does not know time or space. Remember to send the Reiki where it needs to go for Highest and Best. This way you don’t interfere with another being’s energy field.

Building Your Practice

Since Reiki can be used for any situation, why not use Reiki to build your practice. Set goals of where you would like to be as a person in six month or a year. You can do this with your Reiki business or as yourself as a person.

Would you like to be kinder, more patient, more humble? Set the intention of where you would like Reiki to take you on your journey of self-discovery.

Final Words

Practicing self-Reiki on a daily basis helps you commit to the modality. It helps you transform and evolve over time. I know that I’m a different person than I was prior to learning and practicing Reiki. I’m calmer, more patient, and more forgiving despite every trauma that I’ve experienced.

Reiki also led me to learn other modalities such as working with crystals, animal communication, sound therapy, angel therapy, and coaching.

I’m someone who hasn’t been able to commit to anything during my lifetime. But Reiki changed that. I’m a hundred percent on board with Reiki and I know you can be too. Practice self-Reiki everyday and watch your life transform.

Celebrating the Plant Kingdom (My Journey into Herbalism)

Conventional doctors don’t understand the healing power of Gaia. That’s an understatement. Recently, when I told a conventional medical doctor that I use only plant medicine and supplements to heal myself, I was practically given the riot act by the doctor. Actually, he used the weapons of guilt and fear because I didn’t want a prescription for antibiotics to fight Lyme bacterias.

Photo by Suzy Hazelwood on Pexels.com

In the past this would have bothered me more. I might have lost sleep over it. But I’m not new to plant medicine. I gave up pharmaceutical products in 1994 because I suffered from systemic candida and other syndromes that conventional doctors wouldn’t diagnose for fear of liabilities or tarnishing their reputation as having a rational mind.

But prior to that, in the late 1980s, a wiccan friend introduced me to teas made out of wild crafted and other herbs. Then in the early 1990s, I caught a wicked cold that wouldn’t go away. I coughed so hard that I thought my lungs would pop out of my chest. The friend told me to visit the Herbalist (in Seattle) and she gave me a list of herbs to purchase.

When I showed the list for the herbalist (owner of the business), she suggested that I purchase one of her herbal blends for colds. I did and two days later I was cough free and my energy returned. Needless to say, I became a frequent visitor of the herbalists in Seattle. For me, it was a pleasure to walk into the old shops which usually had wood floors and glass containers and bins of exotic and common (or native to the region) herbs.

It wasn’t long before I bought The New Holistic Herbal by David Hoffmann which became a medicine chest for me. When I worked as a receptionist, I kept this book underneath the desk and I pulled it out to read about the different plants in between phone calls and other tasks. Decades later, I still have the book along with other plant remedy books. I also branched out over the years to work with flower essences and essential oils. In some peoples’ minds this makes me woo-woo or at least, old fashion.

However, here’s the thing, I have cured myself of sinus and bladder infections with the help of plant medicine. I haven’t taken any prescription allergy pills since 1994 when I learned that I could resolve seasonal allergies with herbal remedies. I even used herbal remedies to help me with depression which I suffered from for years. Now, I’m not recommending that anyone ditch their conventional medicines overnight because that would be dangerous for many medical conditions. Besides, it’s best to work with a holistic doctor if you choose to go the natural route. Don’t do this on your own.


I’m merely sharing my story to open minds to explore the anthropology of plants, the history of plant medicine and the current practices. Not everyone is called to the Plant Kingdom, but I’ve been and I’m feeling it more strongly than ever. Since I suffer from Lyme disease (and I might have caught it in Washington State, maybe even years ago), I chose to heal myself with supplements and herbal remedies.

I read two of the late Stephen Buhner’s books about healing Lyme with plant medicine. I also had a strange dream about the herbalist around the time of his death. I had never heard of him until I was living in Brattleboro, Vermont and I had this strong desire to write an article on local herbalists in Southern Vermont. I interviewed Tim Scott an herbalist who had studied with Buhner and was a proponent of Japanese knotweed.

When I learned about Japanese knotweed, I had this feeling that I would become familiar with the plant soon because I suspected I had Lyme. After all, ticks were plentiful in Southern Vermont. And I wasn’t in a permanent home and was stuffing my dirty clothing (with ticks on them) into the same bag with my clean clothing. But this is another story.

Photo by Ryutaro Tsukata on Pexels.com

So, now, I’m in Pennsylvania where I had this urge to write an article on houseplants for a magazine based out of New Hampshire. I bought houseplants that unfortunately had pests. This led me to learn about natural remedies to rid the plants of mites and flies. And while I’m in the process of writing the article on plants and nursing the plants I have (who ever thought I would be a caregiver for plants?), I feel something coming alive in me which I recognize as a calling to the Plant Kingdom. The timing couldn’t be better since Gaia is suffering under the weight of consumerism and high-tech. It’s time to reclaim my place in the natural world and the natural order of things.

Before I end this article, I’ll share a story from when I was in my late twenties and living in Seattle. The wiccan friend that I mentioned earlier and other friends worked at an herbal shop near Volunteer Park. I enjoyed visiting this shop because it was in a historic building and like the other herbal shops had rows and rows of glass containers with an array of herbs.

The friends and I sat around a wooden table where we discussed a range of topics ranging from our favorite alternative rock bands to herbal remedies. This memory is precious because we no longer have opportunities to spend hours sitting around a table with friends sharing our passions. Those moments engaged all my senses and I felt loved by the other women. I felt seen and heard as I witnessed a whole other realm opening up before me (the Plant Kingdom).

I imagine that very few people have face-to-face friendships or the time to foster those friendships. With everyone hiding behind laptop and phone screens or rushing around to make more money to consume more goods, we have lost our connection to Gaia. And is there hope for Unity Consciousness when we don’t even have our feet planted on the Earth?

I’m not pleased that I caught Lyme, but if I had it all along, then I’m glad I was finally diagnosed. I’m also grateful that I was led back to the healing power of plants. It’s not that I had forgotten but I have been ordering most of my remedies online and not visiting as many herbal shops as I had in past decades. However, I’m awakening to new possibilities and I’m allowing the plants to lead me further on this path of healing. And who knows? Perhaps, Stephen Buhner’s spirit is helping me on this quest.

Postscript: Vermont is ruled by the Goddess Ceres who rules plants and agriculture. I believe that my time in Vermont led me back to my love of plants.

Reiki For When You’re Triggered

Photo by Porapak Apichodilok on Pexels.com

When I studied Reiki, the Reiki Master warned the students to never send Reiki to someone without permission. As empaths, we want to fix everyone and everything so that we can feel more harmonious with the world. The best thing to do when we are triggered by world events or to a situation that happens to someone closer to us, is to practice self-Reiki to release the trigger.

This post is for attuned Reiki Practitioners (at least Level One).

I know as an animal Reiki practitioner, I’m triggered when I see videos of stray or abused animals. I’m triggered by destruction to the environment and to the rise of cancer in animals because of human behaviors. I also know that I need to calm my emotions and release my need to control events. This is true for all of us on a path as a healer, especially as an energy healer.

If you’re easily triggered, find out first what events or situations trigger you the most and then journal about them. Another practice is to sit down and do either a breathing or a light (focusing on light) meditation. If you focus on light, see a ball of light moving through your chakras and clearing them. You can park the light in either your solar plexus or your heart chakra. Then breathe into that light.

Contact and ask your Higher Self or I Am Presence what your role is in that situation. You might be surprised that your role is simply to engage in affirmative prayer or to meditate on the light. Once you generate an overabundance of light send the light out through the world and ask it to travel to a highest and best place.

You can also practice self-Reiki with the hand positions and set the intention to resolve the issues causing you to feel triggered. Add singing bowls and tuning forks if you have them available. You can also combine crystals for your self-Reiki session.

I have an encyclopedia of crystals that I like to reference to or I turn to a page and see which crystals call to me. If I have the crystals I include them in my Reiki session and if I don’t, I call on the spirits of the crystals. Either way, you will still have the honor of working with the crystals you chose for your session.

Photo by E Pro on Pexels.com

If you have the Solfeggio fork 174 hertz you can run this fork on your 7 main chakras going in circles counter clockwise to clear each chakra. And if you have a pendulum you can check each chakra to see if it has been cleared. If not, run the tuning fork in circles over that chakra again. Then once your chakras are cleared you can begin your Reiki session with the hand positions.

If you want to get more advanced, you can work with crystals and grids, but that’s a topic for a future article.

And remember to recite the Reiki Principles:

Just for today…I will not worry. Just for today…I resolve my anger. Just for today…I’m honest with myself and others. Just for today…I’m thankful. Just for today…I’m kind to myself and all living beings.

Finally, if you are attuned to Reiki (and you would be if you’re reading this article), work with the Reiki symbols or a symbol of your choice. This too, will help you release the triggered emotions and thoughts. I recommend the Emotional Healing Symbol (Si He Ki).

Photo by Magda Ehlers on Pexels.com

We’re all being triggered right now emotionally and even physically. This is part of the process of owning and integrating our shadows. This is also teaching us how to set boundaries and know the difference between what is ours and what isn’t ours to take on. Know that just practicing self-Reiki each day and focusing on bringing more light into your body, you are healing the planet.

Other modalities I recommend is John Newton’s DNA Ancestral Clearing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Coaching, and Emotional Freedom Technique Tapping. But remember, there are many roads to liberation. Find what works best for you.

Create Energy Flow by Uncluttering Now

Photo by Rifqi Ramadhan on Pexels.com

Energy flows where our attention goes.

We’ve all heard about energy flow and energy blockages. These occur in our bodies but they also occur in our minds and in our homes. These energy blockages can also prevent work in the form of clients coming in or a flow of an income.

While it’s true we can hire coaches to help us build our businesses and bring in a higher income, but without energy flowing unhindered into our lives and our homes, any money coming in will soon dwindle. So what are ways that we block energy from flowing into our lives that creates happiness, abundance, and peace?

Clutter in the Home or Office Space

Photo by alleksana on Pexels.com

Some people swear that having a disorganized desk with piles of paper and objects in disarray is part of their creative process. That might be true to an extent as far as creativity goes, but clutter creates blockages. This means that a person experiencing clutter could have a pile of paintings they haven’t been able to sell or manuscripts that go unnoticed by agents and editors.

True that there’s more to success than energy flow such as talent and effort, but if the energy is flowing and not blocked by clutter than add that to talent + effort and you’re more likely to experience success. This goes for the flow of clients too.

Clear out clutter and find an organizational system that works for you. This will also save you time in finding important documents or for paying your bills on time.

Calm the Monkey Mind and Practice Mindfulness Meditation

Photo by Oluremi Adebayo on Pexels.com

This one is more of a process that begins with breath or light meditation for several minutes at a time. Eventually, you will build this practice to last five minutes to last over an hour. If your mind is too crazed to meditate, talk to a homeopathic or flower essence practitioner to find remedies to calm the mind. You can also consult with a holistic doctor.

Cut Down on Stimulants (Eat Whole Foods)

Photo by Polina Tankilevitch on Pexels.com

This includes cutting down or cutting out sugar (refined sugar), caffeine, as well as recreational drugs. If you eat a healthy diet of whole foods you are less likely to feel jittery and restless. Adding magnesium was helpful for me but consult your medical doctor when adding supplements.

Another solution to building energy, which might seem counterintuitive, is to exercise, even go for a walk mid-day. Try it and see if this works for you.

Eliminate Distractions

Photo by Jaime Reimer on Pexels.com

This list includes gossip, long phone conversations (that are trivial in nature), binging on YouTube videos or television and binging on social media. Believe it or not, when we allow these types of distractions to dominate our lives we are unable to think for ourselves. If we are empathic, which most people seem to be, we create blockages in our energy field. When our energy centers (chakras and meridians) are blocked, disease is in the potential not to mention that we don’t quite feel like ourselves.

While it’s unrealistic to expect anyone to completely eliminate social media, phone conversations, and watching entertainment, find more healthy alternatives when possible such as listening to music, reading books (with healthy for your mind content), cooking, going for walks, meditation, hiking, kayaking, and other enriching practices.

5 Things We Learned from 2022

Photo by picjumbo.com on Pexels.com

When we reach the end of the year people react in one of two ways. They either kick the year to the curb and take their emotional baggage into the next year, which they hope will be an improvement. Or wise people take time to reflect on lessons they learned in the past year. They prefer to find blessings and learn from their mistakes.

For those of us who choose to pause and reflect, here are five lessons that 2022 taught us.

One: Think For Yourself

With so much misinformation and gas lighting coming at us from all sides, we learned to go inward and trust our intuition. We found neutrality while seeing the lies from both sides of the aisle. And if we learned how to tune in instead of grabbing our news from the outer world we empowered ourselves. This benefits us going forward because we have tapped into the ultimate Source.

Two: We Jumped Timelines

If we started 2022 ignorant about quantum physics, by the end of 2022 we realized that walking a linear path doesn’t make sense in a quantum world. We set out in one direction only to find ourselves in a completely different location or occupation.

For instance, at the beginning of 2022, I made plans and set out to take my animal communication skills to Vermont, but by the fall, I move to Pennsylvania, a state I had never considered previously. (I’m writing a memoir about this plot twist).

Are you where you hoped to have been at the beginning of 2022? Did you take a sharp left or a u-turn where it came to your career, family, partnership, or big dream? If you did, congratulations because you’re on the ascension train. All aboard.

Three: We Stopped Dancing with Co-dependence

Remember the old days of two steps forward and four steps back when it came to getting entangled with game-players, and irresponsible people (people who refuse to take responsibility for their actions), and perpetual victims?

In 2022, we realized that carrying someone else’s baggage meant that our own lives stagnated and our dreams remained on hold. We learned that we deserved better than to hang out with people who refused to take the next step to their own emancipation from drugs, mental illness, or victimhood.

This didn’t mean we didn’t stand on the sidelines and cheer on those who took first steps to recovery. It meant that we weren’t going to allow others to sacrifice our lives. We learned that “no” is a word. We learned how to set boundaries and stick to them.

Four: We Stopped Watching the News (And Created A Different Reality)

We took our powers of observation and using logic back. When two and two didn’t add up to four, we questioned the source. We followed the money and then we searched for alternatives news sources we trusted. People also left social media platforms such as Facebook because censorship and being told what to think offended our intelligence.

I closed a Facebook account before I left for Vermont. Then, unfortunately, I opened another account so that I could participate in groups only. But I don’t post any personal information, I only have one friend on my account, and I certainly don’t share intellectual properties on a platform where anyone can steal it. You’ll find no pretty photographs in my feed. (If you want to know my opinions on controversial subjects, find me on Locals.com).

The best way to learn the truth is to meditate and ask spirit guides to point us in the right direction. This works every time. There are worldly powers and other-worldly powers. I prefer the second option. In my case, my spirit guides led me to safety and protected me from dishonest people and dangerous situations.

Five: We Took Owndership of Our Bodies

My body is not for sale to the highest bidder. I don’t cave into fearful tactics when it comes to my health. I won’t allow my body to be used as an experiment. I consume only natural products that I trust…How about you?

We read between the lines and followed the money. Some of stopped visiting conventional doctors and searched for energy-healers or natural doctors. We picked up books on nutrition and we watched videos of functional doctors. We enrolled in yoga classes, began meditating, and we changed our diets. We made our own decisions in regard to our bodies and didn’t allow anyone to bully or shame us for our choices. We understand that we need healthy 100% human bodies to ascend into the higher dimensions.

We ate organic foods and honored the natural Earth. We realize we are a part of the Earth. We understand that foods raise or lower our natural frequency.

The next step is to eliminate all destructive habits towards our bodies and shore up our natural forces to ward off any future bacterial or viral invaders.
