I was listening to a tape of a sermon by Rev. Leo Buscaglia in which he was saying that during one of his talks, a woman in the audience stood up and yelled stretch. He paused for a second and then went on with his talk. A few minutes later, the woman stood up again and yelled “Leo, S-T-R-E-T-C-H.”

He said it took him awhile but he realized afterwards that the woman was telling him that the talks he was giving were the same old same old and she was asking him to stretch himself and come up with something new.

Makes you think, doesn’t it? When was the last time you stretched yourself? Have you gotten stuck in the same old same old, day after day, doing and saying the same things. Believing the same old way about everything. Never stretching yourself to think or believe differently?

Obama gave an acceptance speech tonight in downtown St. Paul and I heard that it was very powerful (I was teaching). Talk about stretching. The country is stretching right now. Believing in change once again after being so weary of the same old same old. I’m feeling hopeful that we’ll get back on track or better yet, that we’ll start a new track for the new world coming.

I’ve been feeling that inner push to s-t-r-e-t-c-h myself also. Push myself to see what more I can do. I’m tired of doing the same old same old. I’ve been doing psychic readings for 40 years. That’s a long time. And healing’s for the same amount of time. Holy smokes.
I’m overdue for a s-t-r-e-t-c-h.

I’m not sure what it’s going to look like, but I’ve been asking God to show me what’s next.
I’m going to take a break from doing the Friday night Gallery readings. That definitely feels over due. I’ve got a great group of former students who are now doing readings as a group for people. It’s unique and I think people will really enjoy this concept, so they are going to step in for me and do the Gallery’s until I feel it’s time to go back to them. You can get more details by clicking on the calendar at and look for Gallery on Friday nights.

My inner voice told me to stop doing healing’s for awhile so I’ll be referring everyone to the Healing Pen Pals. Thank Goodness for them. What a great group of dedicated healers they are.

Teaching seems to be the only thing I’m going to stick with for now. Teaching others how to recognize and use their gifts in their every day life. And teaching people to live by that still small voice within. The desire to teach people those two things never goes away.

I’m thinking of teaching “Summer School”, even though it will extend into October.
The last Saturday of every month I will teach a day long workshop on psychic and spiritual development from 10:30 – 5:00. I haven’t figured out the schedule yet, but I think it will work well for people out of town and people who can’t make a night class.

I want to stretch myself. I want to see what I’m capable of doing. I want to keep growing and learning and then I want to turn around and teach it to others. Don’t you think it would be totally cool to experience yourself at your highest potential? I do.
And that’s where I want to go.

You’ll need to stay tuned for how this all turns out. And I’ll definitely keep you posted as more becomes revealed to me. When I had my numerology chart done by Wes Hamilton, he said this was a great transitional year and I can feel it inside. I can feel big change coming and in order to make room for new things, I have to close the door on what I’ve become comfortable with. It’s time to s-t-r-e-t-c-h.

How about you? Feel like stretching?

If you’re looking for some guidance as to where you might stretch to, I would suggest contacting
He does these fantastic numerology mini readings, 15 minutes for $25. or one hour reading for $150. I highly recommend either.

Thanks for checking in. I’ll be back sooner than later………………
The adventure begins…………………..
