January Blog

First things first, I would like to send a big hug out to my friend John Daltrey in Tucson who has now entered hospice. Thank you for having your friend Christine send me an email. Life has been so busy since getting married in September and as you know, I’ve barely done any blogging.

Shortly after getting married, my husbands 20 year old son moved in with us and my life has changed dramatically since being a very single person for many many years. I’ve been very busy promoting the new book, What Happens When We Die. I’ve been doing a ton of radio interviews and finally after years of trying to get on the radio show Coast to Coast, my friend Dave Schrader sub-hosted one night and I was a guest. It was great. He had great questions and we had a blast. I’ve met some of the nicest people hosting these radio shows. It’s been a whirlwind of interviews talking about death in a very pleasant way.

One of the highlights of these last few months just happened this last week end. I taught a 3 day workshop on Living by our Intuition at Hazelden’s Renewal Center and there was something very magical about teaching “my people” about intuition. My 41st anniversary is coming up Feb. 3rd and it felt very special to be there and to be with people on a spiritual quest.

Winter has been relentless but I’m also finding the magic in that as well. We’re surrounded by mounds of snow up here in Minnesota with temperatures that would make an Eskimo pause before coming here. Yesterday the temp was minus 22 with a windchill of minus 45. SERIOUSLY????? Yup. And for some odd reason, I’m finding it to be kind of fun. I’ve always loved snow days. I stay inside and bake or sew. One of my publishers loves the fleece shirts I make, so whenever I find some kind of goofy fleece to match his goofy personality, I make him a shirt.

I’ve been going back and forth about getting a bigger place to have my teaching Center. I want a bigger space, but I don’t want the hassle of it, so I decided to stay where I am. I’m re-painting the walls. Bringing in more plants. Gonna make it as homey as possible. The Aurapalooza’s that we’ve been having every month are very successful. We’re getting bigger and bigger crowds and I love it. I love providing the community with a place to go to find good readers, body workers, artists, gifts, etc. It’s really fun.

Just this week we started a new on-line psychic development class which always makes me happy. We get students from all over the globe and they make friends with each other. I’m also starting a new in person 16 week psychic development class March 4th. I love helping people develop their spiritual gifts. It’s fun to watch those light bulbs go on over their head as they put the pieces of their life’s puzzle together.

I think the only other thing going on right now is that I’m thinking of writing a book about raising a psychic child. I’m not thrilled about the thought of writing a whole nother book so I might just keep it simple and write an E-Book that I’ll sell on my website. The older I’m getting the more I want to keep things as simple as possible. Get the messages out there and relax a little. If I started a book today, it wouldn’t be out for a minimum of another year to two and the thought of going through the whole process again makes my body shudder. But I do have to say I’m getting the bug to write so I’ll keep you posted. There are so many older souls coming in right now to help raise up the vibration of our planet and I want to help parents and grandparents understand their little darlings…………..so send good writing vibes and hopefully I will get this thing done soon.

That’s it for today. You’ve been caught up on pretty much everything. I’m going to head over to the Center and finish painting the Gift Shop. Today’s color is a soft turquoise. And then I’m going to paint the basement white and Ted, the owner of The Cottage House will come in and do is amazing magic and we will have shangri la down there once again. Mercury goes retro for three weeks in February so I’d like to get things done before it does.

Thanks for visiting today.
