Thoughts of February ending

February is fast coming to an end and it has been a busy month for me. I'm just back from taking The Yuen Method Level One course. I was thinking on the way home, it is often said you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Well I believe you can! Its called practice!
After taking the Introduction four hour workshop of the Yuen Method on New Years Day I recognized that it was similar to my Soul/Source Connection work and had some quicker methods and decided I wanted to know/learn more. Now with Level One under my belt, wherein I learned a great deal more of how I can utilize this technique I will be working to assimilate what I learned. After all I'm committed to aiding/helping people achieve what they want easily.
The second exciting thing which occurred was my 'Free Point Energy Wand' arrived, just before leaving for Calgary. Now again New Years played a part in this. A good friend happened to be in Vancouver and was introduced to the Amega Wand.....she brought it back with her to Penticton and demonstrated how it worked. For me I loved the way it made vegetables taste (not my favorite) but the taste of them, even lettuce, made me want one, after all one needs their veges. Anyway, while in Calgary I used it several times on people who had pain or discomfort and they all felt a difference - one person was able to raise his arm where he hadn't before. Several had pains from their shoulders, knees and feet removed. yeah! My friend Cecelia who I was staying with had developed a cough, and when 'wanding' her chest, she stopped coughing and better yet slept well through the night. This happened two nights in a row. I have found it is great to have as not everyone wants to be 'processed' with their pain, but are willing to have some relief now. In otherwords the 'wand' is acceptable. So I feel I have two ways of relieving pain.
Third thing is my six month Plug Into Your Personal, Psychic & Spiritual Power Intensive ended, which I wrote about earlier, but it sure always leaves a 'hole' in my life. What happens while participants are going through the program, I 'hold' them in light to travel their journey. Then when it is over I let them go, and for me its sad for a wee while. I spoke to Olivia who now lives in France yesterday morning, and that was great as she is doing well.
Now as I'm tidying up my house, seeing a last few clients I'm beginning to get ready for going to New Zealand where I will visit my family, friends and hopefully enjoy the sun, after all we have snow here this am. I'm sure everything which needs to get done will get done, but its always a bit hectic before you leave for a three week trip. I will be blogging how the trip goes when I can get to a computer.
As February comes to a close, I look back and think, wow its gone....come on March.

Plug Into Your Power

This weekend was the last weekend of my six month intensive Plug Into Your Personal, Psychic and Spiritual Power. It is always satisfying to see the students who take the journey come to the end, but it is also sad. It means no more monthly meeting, no more getting together and sharing what has occurred the previous month.
Yet, what a warmth it is to know they have learned many personal tools which they can use in the coming years. Over the years I have taught this program, I have watched people continue on to make a difference in their lives. To learn other tools to work with, to become professional healers, psychics and most importantly have their personal lives work. Yes, as this latest group move into their futures they do have choices, like all of us, to make. Trustingly they will make choices which work effectively for them.
This year, one of the grads moved back to France and we had the pleasure of speaking with her on the Sunday morning. We were thrilled to hear her voice and hear how her life is unfolding. She and I worked together to ensure she had all the information and transform processes completed before she returned for good.
Also, one of the participants had a drive of several hours every weekend to be with us, and she stayed with me during the whole weekends sometimes coming a day or two early, or staying a day or two late. She just left this morning and I always feel like one of the family has left when she goes. We both know though, we will be seeing each other at the end of April when she returns into the area for the Spring Festival of Awareness, where she helps out, and I am giving two presentations, one on the Inner Child, and the other on Past Life Regression.
We were also fortunate once again to have a male in our group, who added the male perspective often to our conversations. I love it when we have at least one male in our group.
As is usual with my life, one group departs and I begin once more to attract the next group to begin the journey in the Fall. This year we will be beginning in October and continuing until March.
This week I'm also preparing to go to Calgary to take Level One of the Yuen Method. I'm looking forward to that as I have been working with what I know of the technique since I took the introduction and I'm thrilled to see it works really well with my soul/source work.
Then once home from that I'm in preparation mode for my trip to New Zealand, which I will keep everyone apprised of when I get access to a computer.
Its cloudy here today, a massive rain storm sometime in the middle of the night, and it looks like it may rain today. But I know the sun is shining beyond the clouds and I'm happy. Happy for life, happy for connection to source energy, happy for being alive on this wonderful planet, and happy I can watch the Winter Olympics.
Blessings to all this day

Book and Movie - the endings

In the last week I finished reading Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger, and saw the movie Its Complicated with Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. In both I was disappointed with both the endings.
Lets take the book, Her Fearful Symmetry. My friend Carol brought it too me and said "Read this and tell me what you think". Well first of all as I began to read the book I was thrilled with the writing of Audrey Niffenegger, her ability to make pictures, take a simple scene and fill it full of smells, tastes and color. Wow, as I read on, I thought Carol wanted me to read it because it was about a ghost, and I found myself becoming more and more involved with the story and characters. They seem to jump of the page at me. In fact I began to read a bit, get up and do something, then go back and read more. Then near the end, everything fell apart. At least for me. I guess I like conclusions when I read something, I ended up feeling left up in the air. All these characters without any conclusion. Did Audrey Niffenegger feel like I and other readers needed to make our own endings, or did she feel she had written enough and just left it. I was disappointed with the ending. The reading in the middle was great. What a bizsarre concept to write a story about. I can only imagine a mind who comes up with a story line like that. During supper before going to the movie Its Complicated we talked about the book and came to the same conclusion. The ending sucked!
Then as we left the movie we talked about how the ending seemed flat. How the on screen connection between Meryl Sreep and Alec Baldwin was obvious, yet there did not seem to be any with Steve Martin (oh yes, has he had a face lift?) and this prompted us to have a further discussion around endings. I must say though we both laughed a lot during the movie, mostly at Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep (a true genius of non verbal words with her face and body) - not at Steve Martin.
We talked about were we, as women in our 60's wanting the 'happily ever after' ending. Was the world becoming more cynical in its approach of endings and for me, in particular, are directors not getting the not on screen connection between stars.
In this I'm still upset that Tom Hanks and his female star in Angels and Demons who had no chemistry at all, and that director Ron Howard (or whoever hired her) did not see that. What is wrong that people that they don't see that the chemistry must be there for us (the audience) to believe it.
Anyway, for frustrating endings, read Her Fearful Symmetry or go see Its Complicated. I'm sure you'll see what I mean. Great middle, horrible ending.
