Amazing TED talk that I found very profound.

Watch to the end, so worth the time.



New Cycle started this week after the eclipse (blog has a new look).

Aloha All,

Well I have been wanting to update my blog for a quite a while now (meaning change the theme, get one that is up to date and see if I can make it work). I have tried this a number of times over the past three years. I loved the theme I was using and just couldn’t give it up, so each time I put it off even though it had stopped being updated years ago and eventually things just weren’t working like they were supposed to.

So here I am with Mercury Retrograde (perfect for re-doing anything), and on the other side of the major shift of energy which was the eclipse this last Monday, and without making a plan to do it today, here I am doing it today! Part of this stemmed from the work I am doing on another blog that I manage as a volunteer updating it and such. I found a theme I liked for them and thought huh, maybe I’ll use that one. Plus there are some cool new additions to widgets and whatnot that I had to try out for the other blog, and then was all yep I’m going to use all of that too. Hahaha.

I have been pretty silent (other than on Facebook) over the past two and a half years that I was working with the mediation center (yes I spelled that right, mediation not meditation) and if I get caught up in another intensive project I may go radio silent again, however I have a bit of momentum and time and so it feels good to get something out onto the page.

So how was the eclipse for you? Here in Hawaii it was just a small partial, and the clouds obscured it even so. However I saw amazing photos and great live video of the totality in the various parts of the country. I also participated in a global mediation series that was geared towards anchoring love, which was very cool.

The energy was very profound and there were dreams and insights that came through this process. I had a long meditation last Friday that ended up with my doing work on a planetary level to help shift and work with all the stuff coming up out of everyone as these transitions happen. I added to the grid which is already around the planet, adding a whole additional structure of roses (of course since that’s the symbol I use) placed all round out side of the grid to assist with draining off and transmuting the gunk (the technical word haha) as it comes to the surface.

I also started to work on a much larger level than I had been, working farther out into the solar system, not just on the planet itself. Very interesting things I have been observing energetically.

One other thing that I received in a mediation recently, maybe late Monday or yesterday, was the sense of the eclipse being a moment of time when there was maintenance that was able to be completed on a planetary energetic level, kind of taking something offline for a moment to do some realigning.

There is more, however I think that is all for now.

I have added some additional widgets to my side bar so you can listen to the free 15 minute Gold energy (Heal your Life) meditation from anywhere on the blog and I have hosted my gold ribbon meditation and linked to it so that you can listen without going to Soundcloud. I know there is some limit to the number of downloads you get and I didn’t want people to run out, so now that should be a non-issue.

Many blessings on this new adventure.


Venus Retrograde Reading Special

I am sure you have noticed that Venus has been retrograde since March 4th (which was my birthday by the way!) it will stay retrograde until April 15th (Tax Day), however if you haven’t noticed (which was true for me) Mercury is also going retrograde on April 9th which means we will have an overlap with two personal planets retrograde at the same time. Yee Haw!

So what better time to schedule a reading or a ThetaHealing session right?


I have a special happening again to make this even easier. To schedule an appointment with me you can email me at the address listed on the graphic, or text me at the number I have listed on my web page, and as always if you are in dire straights please let me know and we will see what we can work out.

Aloha and Blessings!







There’s a part of my heart that never aged.

Kept apart from the rest of my life, observing events, but not touched.

In amber…glowing golden, kept with other treasures, and memories.

Forgotten like so many things, that will reemerge at some predestined time when all is added back to us once more.

There’s a part of my heart that is still young, that is fresh and new and in awe.

(I had felt I had lost so much of it when Bowie passed, and now I see that there may be more than I knew.)

In me it blooms. Today I am reminded it was never lost.

No matter what the mirror reflects. I know now that I am not so old as I thought, and will never truly be, no one is…

I know now why the old men sit and reminisce, playing games in the park. 

I am reminded and renewed by reconnections and memories, coming to it from another place, with more understanding, the kind that only comes with age. 

Blessed am I, by my past. By the tender group of souls I came here with, some of them have moved on, and some of them, gratefully, are traveling with me still.

 from my yard 

Musings on coming out in the 70’s. I will miss you David Bowie.¬†

I remember striped glitter tube socks worn with platform shoes 6 big sparkly bracelets on each arm, walking arm in arm with a woman in pike place market not caring if people saw, even daring them to see. I remember my silver satin pants, the pink sequin shirt.
Multicolored hair, six inch platform boots, hanging on to one another as we traversed the cobblestones of Pioneer Square, so we didn’t fall.

Going to the 107 Club until 4am; The Trojan Shield for the drag shows, applied our red lipstick looking in the mirror at the end of that long single counter of the all night diner in-between.

Dancing at the Golden Crown, since I couldn’t get into the Silver Slipper (no fake ID, and that bar checked because it was all women), I don’t know if I ever made it in to that bar!
I remember the posters for the Double Header advertising Zee Whizz Kidz in their peacock capes. Glitter Rock and Gay bars. My life every weekend hitchhiking to Seattle after I came out in the 70’s.
And on my wall at home the open inside cover of Alladin Sane.

My fan girl crush and my hero, the first person who I ever knew was bisexual other than me.

I would gaze at your image. Androgynous and beautiful, otherworldly and amazing. You represented so much to me, gave me courage in your visibility to ask the hard question of myself and finally find the answer at such a young age; as I bounced back and forth between acceptance and terror.

There you were giving it all a name just by being, making it shiny and worthwhile giving me something to lean against and point to, a belonging.

You moved through the years with me, always there to check in with on the state of music and culture. Reminding me of where I came from.

There aren’t many of us left from my days on Occidental, it’s all changed.

I will always love you, and today it feels like I have lost a part of myself, makes my journey from that teenage girl to the woman no one would recognize as being the same if seen from a distance, (age making its alterations) all that more real.

And I wonder who I am, who I have become; once again asking the hard questions with you as my guide even now…am I being true to my own muse as you were so very true to yours? No. I think perhaps not. And then … what do I want to do about it.

RIP my lovely starlit man. Keep me company in spirit until I too find my way to where you have gone.

Aloha and Blessings,
