Christmas Magic

By Echo Bodine / December 16, 2009

The other day I was baking cookies, thinking about Christmas and the memories I cherish the most. The thought struck me that I wondered why I always reminisced about my childhood Christmases and not any of the Christmases I’ve had as an adult… After much mulling over, I realized that as a child, there was always a magic about Christmas. The memories that came up the strongest were the plate of cookies at my grandma’s house every year. She would do a cookie exchange with her church friends and it was always fun to see what was on the plate.…

The Plan?

By Echo Bodine / December 13, 2009

I’m told that my mind jumps from one thing to the next in a matter of seconds because I have Gemini rising. Whatever the reason is, I can tell you one thing. It’s very annoying (but entertaining). So here we are, 12 days from Christmas and my mind is all over the place. The Center is closing in 18 days. I was over there yesterday, taking things off walls, reminiscing as I held each item in my hand. Several times I caught myself wondering if this was really the next step in my life. Letting go of the Center and…

Listening for Plan B

By Echo Bodine / November 23, 2009

Changes, changes, changes. Yesterday, we had an Open House at the Center and it was so wonderful to see so many people show up for readings, healings, massage and aura photo’s, not to mention take advantage of the great sale that Moon Wisdom Gift Shop had. It was a really fun day. My numerology chart (done by Wes@weshamilton.com) keeps saying that I get most of my energy and enthusiasm from working with other women right now and it sure is true. There was such a feeling of love and nurturing in the room and I didn’t want the day to…

What’s with all the demons?

By Echo Bodine / October 17, 2009

What in the world is going on? Lately all I hear about is demons. Demons are the cause of this or that. Demons are attaching themselves to us and making us do horrible things. Demons. What the hell is a demon anyway?Webster says it’s an evil spirit or a devil. So suddenly we’re all being taken over by these evil spirits? C’mon folks. GET A GRIP. And then there’s all this spirit attachment. Everyone’s behavior in the last year has been excused away by spirit attachments. And again I say, GET A GRIP. We are not a bunch of victims…

No More Gas Station and Vitamin D

By Echo Bodine / September 25, 2009

Oh what a difference a week makes!!! Last week I wrote the Blog about finding my gas station and a week later, I’ve let go of the entire idea. Last Saturday I spent the day at the Cottage House making popcorn for all the folks that came by to shop. It was a really fun day and I’m very glad I did it. I met some really nice people and it was fun to watch people come out of the house with their new purchases and big smiles on their faces. At least a dozen people commented that they loved…

I Found My Gas Station

By Echo Bodine / September 18, 2009

I’ve got a really fun story that I want to share with you. Back in the ’80’s there was a movie that came out about a spiritual healer called Resurrection. I need to tell you about the movie so that you’ll understand why I’m blogging about my gas station. The movie opens up with a young woman (Ellen Burstyn) buying a very fun, red convertible sports car for her husband for his birthday. He totally loves with his car and they take it for a spin, laughing and having a very happy time driving on windy mountain roads. A car…

Scary Times?

By Echo Bodine / September 10, 2009

Someone emailed yesterday and asked me to write a Blog about fear. She said that with all the news about the H1N1 and all the horrible rumors about Obama, it’s scary to leave the house these days. I hate what the media does to us. I wonder when the news first started broadcasting way back when, if their intention was to find all the bad news possible and bring it to people every night when they’re eating dinner or about to go to bed. Who and when was it decided that the daily news should be the daily bad news.…

Transgender

By Echo Bodine / July 27, 2009

I have a friend that’s transgender and he fascinates me. He is a handsome man during the week and goes about his business as a shop owner, father and grandfather. On the week-ends he transforms into an attractive female. He grew up with a strict, military father and always struggled with feeling female rather than male. He lived the life of a man and tried denying the female side of him that was so prevalent. He was married. Farmed the land and taught high school shop class. He’s enjoyed the male roles in his life. But internally he yearns to…

Discernment

By Echo Bodine / July 13, 2009

Discerning the difference between truth and lies. I’ve already seen some things written about Michael Jackson that feel so wrong I can’t believe people write them so I want to caution you about believing everything that you read and hear about him in the weeks and months ahead. Listen to the messages, no matter who they’re coming from, with your discernment and not with your head. If you’re not certain what I’m referring to, I have a very simple technique that my teacher taught me years ago. When you’re listening to a lecture, watching tv, reading something on the internet…

Time to Blog

By Echo Bodine / May 7, 2009

Well this one is wayyyyyyyyy overdue. My good friend John Daltrey who lives down in Tuscon, always sends me a reminder postcard that’s it’s been awhile since I last blogged and I think John has now sent two or three since my last blog. There’s been so many things lately that have spurred me on to write a blog, but then I get caught up in day to day stuff and the thoughts pass. This whole swine flu thing has been so ridiculous I thought it best not to comment since it all felt so dumb. Many years ago there…
