We’re all human, doing our best in a challenging world. Despite our best intentions, there are times when we need a gentle reminder to be compassionate with ourselves. I’m not the only person who forgets to be kind to myself because I often see this story come up in the Alchemy card readings I do with my friends and clients. For example, while at the Gypsy Glampout at LeFleur Decor in Hadley, the Sustain card came up quite a few times. So much so that I made a little video about it. “This card reminds us to take really good care of ourselves because whenRead More →

The Lavender Festival at Blake’s Orchard and Cider Mill in Armada, MI, went incredibly well. I was glad to be a part of the crew from Rochester Holistic Arts. We offered a free massage, healing lotions, jewelry, crystals, essential oils for sale, and Alchemy card readings. Although it was a little breezy, the weather was comfortable as we set up for all three days from 10 am – 5 pm. The event was jam-packed, with tons of people stopping by to look at stuff and get a few minutes of massage from our generous and talented crew, David, Brooklyn, Buffie, Brooke, Lisa, Kathleen, and Nic.Read More →

I was standing in the bathroom, brushing my teeth and getting ready for the day, when a robin flew into the window. The first time, it startled me, but the bird continued, attempting to fly into the closed window, then settling back onto the branch of our maple tree. I tried to shoo it away, but it refused to give up. I went for a walk with my son, Garrett, and when we got home an hour later, it was still at it. Eventually, Robin decided to give up the day, but it was right back the following day, flying into the window again. BeingRead More →

After last week’s wedding weekend with my family in Little Rock, Arkansas, I keep thinking about this song. On November 6, my cousin, Sarah, married her sweetie, Trent, surrounded by friends and family. The ceremony was lovely, and the reception was an absolute BLAST!! We had all been looking forward to this celebration since before Covid. Now, with the vaccine, we were glad to get together finally. Lots of people, including me, flew in from around the country. One guy even came in from Canada. Sarah set up a FB live link to watch the ceremony for those who couldn’t attend. I sat with myRead More →

This week’s song comes from the Avett Brothers. With a light, steady rhythm, the lyrics remind us to stay tuned into the truth within ourselves. “Ain’t no man can save me. Ain’t no man can enslave me. Ain’t no ‘mount of man that can change the shape my soul is in.” Each one of us has a soul with which we can sail through the seas of life. Don’t let the worry, fear, and drama from other people steal the wind from your sails. “There ain’t nobody here, who can cause me pain or raise my fears ‘cuz I’ve got only lo-o-o-ve to share!
