Jun 2012 - Our First Great Gathering!

June was a huge 'step-out' month for us, as we hosted our first Great Gathering, with a focus on Shamanism and Soul Retrieval. Although we didn't spend much time focusing on Soul Retrieval, the discussion was awesome!

May 2012 - Several New Clients

After the Meetup group meeting at Charlotte's house, there were several people who contacted me about having a session, which was wonderful, but even better was the start of a fabulous new friendship with one of the people at the April session.

Apr 2012 - My First Gathering With a New Group

I can't remember exactly how it came to my attention, but the universe was obviously sending me a message when I found out about a gathering of a group from Meetup - and that first night at Charlotte's was just the beginning!

Mar 2012 - A Fantastic Trip To Peru With My Sons!

Although I had been in 2007 (which was ABSOLUTELY the start of my spiritual 'Awakening'), I took my two sons with me for 12 fantastic days in Peru, including Machu Picchu and several days in both Lima and Cuzco!

Feb 2012 - Meditations in Mexico

Right after Sedona I continued on to Mexico to spend some time w/my folks in Mazatlan - and during our discussions, I found out several things which almost blew my mind! Suffice to say, my parents are AMAZING!



2012 - Full Postings

  • Nov 2012 - Hypnotherapy Bookings Really Ramp Up!new! I'm not sure if it was because of the trip to Sedona, or just that I was truly ready to expand my hypnotherapy business, but the number of bookings for sessions has really gone up! I think it's a combination of me being ready for it, so perhaps the Universe was just waiting until I was ready and capable of spending the necessary time on my hypnotherapy business. Regardless of the reason, it's now taking off like crazy, and I am ecstatic! It's to the point where I may need to carve more time out of each week so I can keep the focus where it's supposed to be... and helping people get past their pain or their history and be ready to move forward in a happy and healthy way again gives me an absolutely incredible feeling... especially since some of the comments completely tell the tale. Over the next few weeks I'll post a sample of the comments and quotes that people have left with me - it's very humbling!
  • Oct 2012 - Fall, and Another Great Trip to Sedona!new! For the first time, my friend Chrystal Love and I were able to get to Sedona and share each other's favourite spots, activities, and experiences! Chrystal introduced me to Sedona several years ago when I came down for my Reiki Masters, and I fell in love with the incredible energy - most people accept that Sedona is like one of the Earth's 'chakra points', and the energy in several spots is absolutely incredible! If you're interested about the Sedona vacation rental property I stayed in, be sure to let me know - CLICK HERE!!
  • Sep 2012 - New Journeys Takes Space at Healing Connections!new! September, although I was expecting it to be a pretty relaxed month, became a busy whirlwind of activity - some travel, busy with family plus life in general... but with enough time and focus to enable me to put an agreement in place w/Healing Connections, a wonderful healing center near downtown Edmonton, with a commitment to have regular space booked for client sessions! Jane Lightbody Thomas and her team, several massage therapists with a diverse group of other modalities such as cranio-sacral therapy, rolfing, and now Hypnotherapy and Past Life Regression! You can find the centre by clicking HERE , along with the calendar for my hours - I will update this posting with the link shortly. All in all, a fabulous month! I hope your month also has been a great end to summer (or winter if you're in the southern hemisphere!) and you're ready for our next big season...
  • Aug 2012 - Summer Holidays and More Great Gatherings! Not only did I have a great trip to the west coast for some time on beautiful Quadra Island w/my daughter and my folks, we also traveled to Sherbrooke (east of Montreal) to watch my son compete at the Canadian Nationals Mens Basketball Champtionships and then to New York to catch some Broadway before heading back for home! And once we arrived at home, we jumped right into hosting another great gathering through Meetup (you can see the event details HERE )! 26 people came together to talk about Shamanism, Soul Retrieval, and Past Life Regression... a great meeting that went for almost 5 hours! And as if that wasn't enough, my daughter was then in the Fringe Theatre production of The Kidprovisors again for three shows! A VERY busy August!
  • Jul 2012 - More Travel and a Bit of Music at the Coast We traveled to Montreal early in July to visit Tania's father and Michele and had an absolutely fantastic time in the mountains around Mont Tremblant, including a canoe trip for several hours down a lazy little river... a great chance for mindful meditation in nature! We also traveled to Vancouver for the Vancouver Folk Fest, where we've been volunteering for a few years - an awesome time and several new 'discoveries' for each of us! Took a bit of a break from New Journeys work, although I did have several sessions with new and returning clients... wow I love this work!
  • Jun 2012 - A Great Gathering! The group meeting that we held in early June at New Journeys was a complete success! One of the biggest pieces for me was the energy that everyone brought with them... and how everyone accepted everyone else's story and where they were on their journey... the introductions of everyone took almost an hour and a half, as the discussion evolved into questions people had, suggestions for things to look into or potential areas for further discovery... it was incredible! The main topic that we intended to discuss was Shamanism, but we didn't spend as much time on that as we did on general topics of energy healing, ascension, and where people were at on their journey. A truly wonderful evening of discovery and sharing!
  • May 2012 - Several New Clients After the group gathering in late April, several things started to take shape - there wasn't another Meetup group planned by anyone for several weeks, I remembered that over the past few years several psychics had advised me that I would be speaking with larger groups of people - lots of 'openings', I just needed to step through! And, there were even pieces in my decision regarding the planned but unrealized event that had been intended for Peru in late March, and how I really needed to get moving on pulling those kinds of groups together. So, I did, planning the first one for early June... and continued sessions with a few clients confirmed that I was on the right track!
  • Apr 2012 - My First Gathering With a New Group The month of April had a few primary bits - one was the start I made into the New Journeys website and trying to get that up to date, another was a start on some videos explaining what hypnotherapy is and what it can do (Past Life Regression, Clearing up Old Relationships, etc.)... and the final one was going to my first gathering with a Meetup group, at Charlotte's place.
  • Mar 2012 - A Fantastic Adventure in Peru! Peru has always had a special place in my heart - from when I was very young, I've wanted to go to Machu Picchu. Due to a few great events, I was able to go there finally in 2007, and that's where I had my spiritual 'Awakening'... and my journey's been incredible ever since! It was something I've always wanted to share - and so I planned and then took my two sons (21 and 16) for 12 days trekking and exploring Peru, from the nightclubs of Lima to remote mountain villages in the Andes, from seeing the auras in the mountains to paragliding over the cliffs of Lima... we had such a fantastic time, I'm thinking of running trips there on a regular basis and helping others experience the magic of Peru and the Andes!

  • Feb 2012 - Meditations in Mexico February's trip to Mexico offered lots of opportunity to talk with my parents - we had some fabulous dinners together, but it was sitting around the pool or while walking that we could really get into issues - including discussions of what the psychic's messages for me had been while I was in Sedona, my beliefs (and theirs!) about reincarnation and past lives... and generally, some time to really connect. It was a great holiday!
  • Jan 2012 - Post-Christmas Break in Sedona The biggest news in January was that I travelled back to Sedona to stay at My Sedona Place, my vacation rental property in Sedona, AZ. If you're interested in more information about this, be sure to let me know - click H E R E ! !
    I was able to get into the incredible red rocks and experience the vortexes, the people, and have a few great meals with friends who live there. I was also able to get a few sessions in with a Shaman as well as a psychic - both providing great messages for me on things that had been going on over the past few months. Suffice to say, I left Sedona with an even brighter smile on my face and in my heart!
