The Gift of Pura Vida

A view of the endless Pacific in one direction and the ever changing mysterious cloud forest in another, our delightful Costa Rica property sprawled almost an acre. Back in 2004, my former husband and I purchased this tropical paradise –  a mere 10 minute drive to the beach. Excitement abounded as well as visions of our dream home we would build there. Shortly thereafter a friend, who bought around the same time as we did, was having marital issues making owning real estate in Costa Rica no longer in his best interest. To help our friend, we purchased that land from him. We weren’t really sure what we’d do with it but it was in the same phase in the development our lot was located. You may have noticed the title “former husband” previously in this tale. From that you would correctly gather there would no longer be a dream home for us. So for years we have offered both lots for sale or trade.


Around the beginning of my gypsy travels (2009) –  I wound up in Costa Rica although Panama was on my itinerary for where I’d be starting my new life. Since Providence landed me a few miles from where our land was situated, I searched for ways that made sense to start manifesting my dreams there. After almost three months, the signs all pointed for me to move on. Clearly this was not the place.

Earlier this year, I alluded to a difficult situation I was experiencing – one in which I allowed myself to be weakened physically and spiritually. Doubting and second guessing myself and my intuition were some of the effects. During this surreal period, a situation arose. At this point I’d been offered a few less than desirable exchanges for the two lots in Costa Rica. Really….how would trading for barren acreage in Nevada with precious mineral possibilities interest me? It was then I first thought of giving the property away. Although I know my energetic contribution to the planet and humanity is significant, I got to thinking bigger. If I could donate the property to someone who could make a powerful, positive difference with it, that would certainly expand “being the change I wanted to see in this world”. When I mentioned this to the Jekyll/Hyde lost soul I was entangled with, it was immediately shot down. Would I really want to give the property away as opposed to getting say 10-50K? My first instinct was YES! But when questioned again, my Authentic Self began to fade away once more. Regaining my strength and self-connection in the months following, I remembered that incident again. Give the property away? Yes! That is exactly what felt right!






Presenting my potent idea to my potential worthy recipient had me practically bursting! This man is a high energy healer disguised as a master of chiropractic arts in California. While I was aware of his affinity to Costa Rica for some time, it was my Mom who actually refreshed my memory recently. Bilingual in English and Spanish, he loves the country and, just as importantly, the locals. Not your typical tourist who sees them as “background people”, this guy enjoys interacting with and getting to know the Ticos and Ticas of the land. Visions I had of him dividing his time and talent between California and Costa Rica as he assisted diverse populations from around the world were grand! When I first laid the gift idea in his lap, his mind was spinning with possibilities, questions, and considerations. The “what ifs” were infinite. Knowing the myriad implications of him accepting, I left him to consider -  not wanting to pressure him into an immediate decision. As time went on, his excitement and clarity got us on the path of making it happen.



Pretty much every legal transaction in Costa Rica requires an attorney to get involved no matter how small it may be or how closely the participants cooperate with each other. And, while it might make things easier, real estate transactions do not require one to be physically present in Costa Rica as some people were counselling me. Once my DC friend and I were clear that we were on, we wanted to get things rolling asap. Researching recommended attorneys was turning out quite different than anticipated. I wanted to get an idea of how they communicated with me and how they would handle this kind of situation before committing to use them. Not sure if they don’t need new business, the business was too small or complicated or they just didn’t like to be “shopped” as one of them indicated to me. Finally I ended up pulling strings by contacting an associate of a good friend of mine. This gentleman had large projects in progress in Costa Rica and definitely knows how things work there. He recommended an attorney in Uvita that they were considering using for their next project or something similar. She is originally from the United States, married a Tico and has two kids in Costa Rica. She is familiar with law in both countries. Her immediate response to my email left me thrilled and hopeful. Almost immediately my little voice inside told me this is who we were to do business with. My initial excitement dwindled a bit when the communication became less prompt and a bit cloudy. All the information I was trying to get was stated in my original email communication. Yet it took 5 weeks to get it all clarified to the point where monies were being wired to begin to execute the transaction. Strangely, through all of this (unlike other situations in my life), I felt mysteriously at peace and patient. Events still felt like they were on track albeit perhaps via the scenic route. I had a sense I would have information for what was next in my life when I wrapped up the Costa Rica Gifting Project.
In the meantime, the delays where holding me in a loving place I’d decided to assist in until the completion....or another certain sign. In that place I was thrilled to be making a clear, awesome difference and the Universe was engaging me there, in a sense, as long as I was needed. A highly respectful place I might add...with a beautiful Lady. There is a phrase I often use with people asking me how long I will be somewhere….. “I shall stay until the wind changes” :-)

A while back I created a facebook page to help move the land in Central America. It was called, “Costa Rica Land 4 Sale or Trade”. That title has now been changed to “Gift of Costa Rica Land”. While things may not happen quickly, I foresee updates of the transformation being posted there over time. If you are on fb and have not already “liked” Costa Rica Land 4 Sale or Trade, please visit Gift of Costa Rica Land and be a part of Gaia’s bright evolution.

ANASTASIA....And Amazon


While English is the language I grew up with, clear human communication has always been a challenge for me. The meanings of the words do not represent fully what I desire to express. For many people too, the very same word will conjure up a plethora of different meanings. This was one reason I generally did much better one on one Personal Wellness Coaching than presenting to or teaching a group. I got a better sense of what the words meant to each individual and was able to put them together in a way that would mutually benefit.

There is so much profound information I’d love to share with people who are open and ready to listen. For this reason I am extremely excited about someone I’ve discovered in recent years, Anastasia! This lady was born and grew up almost on her own in the wilds of the Siberian taiga. Her wisdom most closely reflects my knowledge of anyone I’ve encountered. Anastasia knows how to group words together in a manner that will create positive images most people will understand. While her body adjusts from her warm weather to her freezing winters without having to add clothes, I admit I am called to the tropics and don’t know if I will ever adjust to cold in this lifetime.

Another “frustration” (for lack of a more appropriate word) is I have vivid remembrances of capabilities I no longer remember how to use. Really, walking on water or through walls is something we all are capable of if we could but recall. Of course not everyone has the desire to use these abilities. It isn’t that important for me to access the aforementioned two. However, clear communication without today’s technologies is something I intend to recapture. While I currently rely on my cell phone and computer for communication, Anastasia had no need for them as she can access any information, anywhere that she desires  - instantly! Yes, we are all capable of that too if we choose to remember how. Some people know it as tapping into “The Field” or accessing the Akashic Records.

So why am I excited? Because within days, you can have the book, “Anastasia” in your own hands (or Kindle) and experience your own miracles in the reading of it. It is the first of nine books written by Vladimir Megre, to whom she gave this information, in The Ringing Cedars Series. I guarantee, if you read it with an open loving heart, you will find a number of gems specific for you. Since I could not personally disseminate this information with my words, Anastasia has given me a gift of hers to share with you.

When I get some technical assistance in the unknown future, hopefully the links in the Universal Wellness Website's Virtual Mall will all be functional again. In the meantime, if you'd like to get the book Anastasia or do any other AMAZON shopping, I'd greatly appreciate if you enter Amazon through my link to do so. I will get a small commission on your purchases which will translate into big assistance as I continue my Incredible Journey! You can also access the book directly HERE .....


I was also wishing for a feedback section on my website so that we can be on this journey together as you read the books. For now, maybe you can post your input in the comments section of this blog post. Looking forward to our new “dance” together!

Putting It Out To The Universe

“God helps those who help themselves.” In keeping with this profound statement, I am putting my request out to the Universe as I look for direction regarding the next chapter of my journey.
                                                                             
I thought I was going to be blogging this month about an exciting development I am looking forward to sharing with you. However, I am waiting until all the t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted. Apparently some involved in this endeavor are on “island time”. Maybe next month.

In the meantime, I am asking Heaven and Earth for guidance, leads and tips. Some of you reading this fall into both categories ;-) As you may remember from my post Baring My Soul and Planting a Dream, I am on a quest to find my special Paradise…..

Walk with me as the sparkling white sand caresses our bare feet, extending for secluded miles in both directions. Bright sunshine warms our skin and we catch a hint of salt on the refreshing sea breeze. Huge thunderheads shapeshift across azuline skies teasing as to whether they will drench us with
a quick shower or not. Look! A pod of friendly dolphins have decided to enchant our day spontaneously putting on a show. We can’t resist entering the warm crystal clear water, turquoise in hue, to join them. Our interaction with our cetacean friends is one of playfulness, bounding joy and deep respect. Finally, coaxing ourselves back on shore, our eyes drink in dense trees entangled in green vines teeming with life.
Regal palm trees occasionally bend toward the ocean and the fragrance of plumeria is intoxicating. Colorful hibiscus and exquisite orchids around the house add to the beauty. Along with the hypnotic crashing of the waves on the beach, there is the constant song of the jungle. Parrots, toucans, monkeys, cicadas and frogs all add their own harmony to the chorus. As evening nears, those magnificent clouds and the humidity they provide, all contribute to the glorious sunset manifesting just for us. It is impossible with human words to describe the infinite kaleidoscope of color keeping us spellbound as the great blazing ball sinks into the sea.
In the soft pastel twilight of the balmy evening, we express gratitude for the loveliness all around in this Tropical Retreat. But wait, there’s more! See the magical glow appearing here and there in the water. Luminescence! Wonders will never cease…..

Sooooo, will you help me get there?! Keep in mind I live mostly by trade of some sort as you may recall in MONEY – NOT the ONLY Currency. Here are thoughts of how you can be – or continue being – part of my Legion of Earth Angels:

* Do you know anyone traveling to a part of the world that sounds like above description who might benefit from having a travel companion?

* Might you have an acquaintance who lives in a similar area of the world that just might host a gypsy for a while? I’d help out in any way I can as I investigate my surroundings.

* Have you personally traveled to (or are in) a location that sounds like this? If so, may I contact you with questions?

* Do you have a blog or newsletter (or a friend who has a blog or newsletter) that you could get me more exposure by sharing this message and possibly reach the “right” person or people?

* Do you have any connections with a publication, in print and/or online, who would want to write about this ongoing saga and pay for it facilitating, or supplementing, my travel?

* You know anyone who has a yacht or large sailboat and wants to explore suitable tropical beaches? Needs to be large enough for me to have a little privacy - no room sharing with someone I just met!

*Are you a writer or know a writer who’d like to partner with me on my story? Maybe even a producer? If you are familiar with Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat Pray Love”….the work would be that kind of “feel”.

* Might you have creative, research, travel or other resources I haven’t mentioned that could be useful in my search?

At this time, I am exceedingly blessed to be in a wonderful mutually supportive and respectful situation. Huge thanks to my Dear Angels making this so. I have a number of leads for “what’s next” but nothing feels for sure appropriate yet. Most of the time I do well living in the moment… enjoying the richness of people and activities in my NOW. Simultaneously, there is that little part in my now that nudges me to reach out and continue My Odyssey.

Big appreciation, as always, for journeying with me!!

P.S. This blog post was inspired by a card I picked from my SELF-CARE CARDS by Cheryl Richardson. It was HELP...."Ask for help ~ Receiving is an act of generosity." I mused about it for days actually wondering who I could ask for help that I hadn't already. Then I was guided to ask all of you....my benevolent readers and Earth Angels. Help.....Please and Thank You!

Magic and Miracles

As per Merriam-Webster:
*Magic - a power that allows people (such as witches and wizards) to do impossible things by saying special words or performing special actions
*Miracle - an unusual or wonderful event that is believed to be caused by the power of God

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.” ~ a favorite quote of mine attributed to my friend, Albert Einstein. The way I see it is that we, people, are all part of God, the Universe or the Creative Source – however you wish to address the One Who is accurately unnameable with human words. So when people take godly action with “special” intent, magic and miracles are the result. Every One has magic in them and Every One is capable of manifesting miracles. That being said, I’d like to share with you some enchantment and delight in my experience.

Months back, I was still raw and recovering from the intensely disconcerting challenges I managed to open 2016 with. Earth Angels were hosting me in their warm home as I was in my “cocooning” process… Read previous blogs: Let It GoHave Courage and Be Kind. It was a rare glorious sunshiny morning on their beach. Rare because, in that part of the world, much of the year the mornings begin foggy or overcast. Although I was doing my best to focus on and appreciate the sand under my bare feet, the warm sunshine on my skin, the hypnotic sounds of the waves…..my monkey mind kept taking over. “How could I have let myself get sucked in to such a dark situation?! Why didn’t I stop when I saw the red flags? I know I was following my guidance….maybe it wasn’t so reliable after all. Maybe I couldn’t ‘read’ anything. Maybe I didn’t have those ‘special’ abilities I’ve shared with a few others. Maybe I’m making all these things up.” Yup, the mental chatter continued ripping into me in spite of my constant efforts to shift my attention to brighter topics. Simultaneously with the “maybe I’m making all this up” nonsense tormenting my mind, I saw a mental picture. A heart ruby ring surrounded by tiny diamonds appeared. I was a bit confused as it looked like the heart shaped ruby ring I have often worn for years. In fact, that one graced my left ring finger as I walked. Again the mental image showed me the ring under the sand. “Yup, I'm really losing it now….this is all a figment of my fertile imagination!” I told myself. Still mentally berating myself, I almost continued walking. Then curiosity got the best of me. I took a step back and moved the sand where I “saw” the ruby heart ring beneath. Lo and behold I picked up a ring….with a heart shaped ruby surrounded by diamonds, extremely similar to the one I was currently wearing on my hand only there was a small piece of the band inside missing! Upon closer examination, the similarities to mine were uncanny.
It could have been made by the same company/designer as the one on my hand that had been gifted to me a couple decades ago. Sharing my miraculous story with a confidant in an effort to determine the meaning of this broken heart ring, she offered, “You are the treasure”. My sister added, “…that most people don’t see”. It was a treasure that most folks would not have seen indeed. The story goes on and on with a number of twists and turns along the way. It ended up being repaired and now I wear it also on the opposite hand as the other. When I found it I was totally doubting myself and my abilities. This was a direct result of allowing myself to be broken down earlier in the year second guessing everything I
knew. Wearing this miraculous ruby heart ring now is a sparkling reminder to me that I am whole and
complete and have access to the Infinite powers of God and the Universe as long as I remember and align myself in the proper manner to that energy.


Another Entity – Familiar – Energy that I align with is that of my playful Dolphins. It is impossible for me to even describe in human language my relationship with them. I “know” more things with them. My own power is enhanced and remembered more acutely through them. Near my Dolphin family, I feel an indescribably joy that fairly bursts from inside me. The secluded tropical beach home of my dreams is unquestionably near them as you may remember in Baring My Soul and Planting a Dream.  The last time I was in their physical presence was in Hawaii toward the end of last year..Aloha and Mahalo  I even had the magical opportunity to swim with them up close and personal – or would that be dolphinal? Whatever you call it, that was an intimate, almost outer-worldly experience. Yes, that is how I want to feel every day! That felt as close to my “natural state” as ever.


As mentioned earlier, we all have magic capabilities that include connecting with Dolphins, or whoever we wish to connect with, even when we are not in their physical presence. Spiritual or telepathic communion can be just as potent, if not more so, when we discover how to get on the same energetic wave length. Glimpses and snippets are all I personally have achieved at this point in time leaving me longing, at other times, for their uplifting loving company. Anne Gordon De Barrigon is a friend who hosts Whale and Dolphin retreats and observation trips in Panama and other locations. She knows how to communicate with our cetacean friends telepathically as well. This particular message from the Dolphins via Anne left me feeling they were in my presence again/still. My finned family has magically visited me in a number of other ways as well. Ready for one more story? Alright, I’ll keep it short and sweet.

While I was in the “right” place at the “right” time a number of weeks ago, the urge arose to travel back to a location where nature nurtured me more. I also longed to be in my Dolphins' physical presence. Starting to peacefully make plans to be on my way, my life turned on a dime once again. Literally, within an hour’s time, I knew without a doubt what my next mission was. Although thrilled with the clarity and prospect of making a positively magical difference, it wasn’t going to be anywhere near “nurturing nature”. Going to my new “assignment” in the octave of my magical birthday (Aloha), my dear friend and host mentioned she had a birthday gift for me. Keep in mind when we got together a few days before, she didn’t even know I was going to be in the area and suspected from a fb post when my birthday was. I was speechless when she presented the hand carved wooden sculpture she’d acquired from the artisan. Deeply moved to tears, I was sure the Dolphins were reminding me, through her intuitive kindness, that they were and are always with me.


The recent proverbial icing on the cake happened a few days ago. While having wistful thoughts about being with my dolphins I saw a message in my email. It was a glowing image reminding me of their constant presence via my friend. Maybe you feel the joy and connection with them too as you gaze upon this picture….


Please also feel my profound gratitude as you continue on this journey with me. Your support and love mean more to me than you know as well as the many ways Dolphin Energy is reflected from within your own hearts. Infinite oceans of blessings my friends…..

P.S. But wait! There's More! The day after I posted this, another dolphin miracle occurred. The intuitive, kind lady who gifted me the exquisite wood carved dolphins has an amazing son. He just returned from a cruise and was thoughtfully presenting his mom with gifts from his travels. To my surprise, I was called into the conversation. The young man had brought a gift for me! This was astonishing enough but the actual gift really put me over the top. It was a glass cube with a laser etched figure inside.....a mermaid riding a dolphin!! Realize he doesn't know me much, didn't consciously know a thing about my dolphin connection and was totally unaware of his mom's dolphin gift to me previously. I am soooo grateful for all the beautiful people in my life streaming joyous dolphin energy!!

MONEY – NOT The ONLY Currency

While money definitely isn’t the root of all evil, it certainly doesn’t make the world go round.  Since internet presences began (Gee, how many eons ago was that?), I have had 5 or 6 people who were going to assist in monetizing my Universal Wellness website. There are so many stories about why both the efforts that were implemented and the situations that came up keeping others from materializing took place. Basically, over the now decades, none of my marketing efforts have been that effective in generating much money. While it could have been that some of the marketing was “faulty”, it surely wasn’t the case across the board. Instead, my marketing efforts attracted many situations in which I was able to support many folks and make an exceptional difference on this planet….just not make a lot of money doing so.

Although I was never rolling in dough, there was a period of time at least I had enough that most people would consider comfortable. From that place I never could have imagined how I’d be living since 2009…….living without money - or at least not much.

Countless Benefactors worldwide have been housing, feeding, clothing, entertaining and otherwise
providing for me. Deep gratitude goes out to them all daily! This was undeniably a unique calling I answered as I could have easily stayed in one place making “comfortable” money. Over the past 7 years, I have continued helping people in many ways I used to get paid for. Now, I just don’t get paid, for the most part, directly by the people I assist in that manner. At the same time, there is no way I could monetarily pay back all the kind people that have been taking care of me. It is a type of energetic exchange that goes around. Money is energy – just one of the myriad possibilities of an energetic exchange. I have traded goods and services many times with others which I prefer doing whenever possible rather than using money.
An example of which is my time in Ecuador that many of you are aware of from previous posts If I’d Have Known and Really….The Desert?!  There I taught yoga, did massage, assisted with hotel registration, cleaning, food service and other aspects of running a business in exchange for my housing, food, pool, laundry etc.

Back to…. “You May Say I’m A Dreamer, but I’m not the only one!” There are many humans out there who believe and live similarly, in many ways, to me. You may enjoy reading about a few of my friends here and their alternative ways of dwelling on Planet Earth.

My Angel Daughter recently held a yard sale to assist me in my travels. Yes, there are still areas I need actual money. The airlines won’t let me trade my flight in exchange for me bringing drinks, meals and blankets to other passengers. Verizon is too big to see my smile to decide it wants to give me a special deal on my phone. You get the idea. In addition to Natasha’s kindness to me, I know thousands were touched by her generous actions. While we know there are plenty of people who have money that go to yard sales for the fun of the hunt and love finding a great deal, others are not in that position. Many who buy things at yard sales would not be able to have those things, be it clothing, children’s toys or kitchen items, were it not for tag sale prices. At $3 a stuffed bag, lots of folks will be sporting new condition Abercrombie and Fitch, UnderArmor, Victoria’s Secret, Roxy, Volcom and more. Numerous generous individuals were purchasing things for others who could not afford them as well. I can’t even tell you how many supporters contributed to the sale by donating abundant goods of all sorts. As the sale was winding down, my daughter invited charities to pick up things they needed. The dog shelter, autistic kids, and woman in crisis were all aided. Finally, Natasha declared a Very Merry Unbirthday to everyone….or something like that.

She posted the vast remaining items for free to anyone who wished to stop by and get presents. Besides the hundreds of people who physically stopped at the event, you can imagine how the ripple effect of my daughter’s thoughtful endeavor touched thousands or more. You notice, too, that some of it involved the currency we call money while much involved simply the currency of love and kindness.


Again, I am not saying money is in any way bad. The love of, or attachment to, money can get people in trouble but that’s a completely different topic. Money is beneficial in infinite ways and often a convenient method of exchange. I am just proposing the idea that there are many more currencies. Perhaps it could add to many peoples’ freedom to explore some of these alternate energy exchanges and systems. Perhaps you don’t need to stay in a job or career you don’t like just because it “pays well”. There are many resources on the internet to research what I’ve been sharing. If you’d like to explore these ideas with me, I invite you to investigate my service of Wellness Coaching by Phone.
This is one of those services I generally do in exchange for money. However, if you have access to something I could use like website services, travel or accommodations, I’m open to playing with the possibilities!

Have Courage and Be Kind


Originally I entitled this blog post, “Dark Night of the Soul”. As time went by, and I slowly began to reclaim my power, I shifted my focus more on one of the phrases that helped me make it through. “Have Courage and Be Kind” might be recognized by other fairy tale aficionados. Fairy tales have been key in my life since, at very young age, I laid eager little hands on my first enchanted book. A myriad of reasons drew me into the world of fantasy. One might observe that fairy tales have as much dark in them as light. Hmmm…..that is
kind of like life. There is Light and Dark all around. We choose which to focus on and also which we wish to create more of – either consciously or unconsciously. Magic also drew me into tales lending to elements most everyday people don’t believe in, much less access. For me, there was more truth and joy in the enchanting stories I got lost in than what people presented as truth. Interestingly, many of the things that folks attributed to vivid imaginations are being “proved” today by “modern” science and countless people sharing their own experiences. Still, for those of us with “unusual” awareness, science can be painfully slow.

So……how many times is it necessary for this human to experience a “Dark Night of the Soul” until a full awakening? Perhaps the answer is in the question. As many times as it takes until a full awakening. If you are interested in looking in to this experience further, Gregg Prescott presents an interesting article "What to Remember When Facing the Dark Night of the Soul"


Encountering the snow and cold as you read in my previous post LET IT GO wasn’t the only experience I totally wasn’t anticipating…..

While I thought I was also past this, some small part of me must have still been exuding somewhat of a victim vibe. As many of you know, the energies we put out are matched with those that share resonance. So, inevitably, I managed unwittingly to attract someone who would accommodate my subconscious victim call. This was no Beauty and the Beast story as I had no clue of what I was about
to encounter. Feeling a false sense of safety, I confided my private information and some very deep things including personal woundings from my past, to that individual, allowing myself to be extremely vulnerable. Instead of protecting that trust, the truth of what I shared was completely twisted and used repeatedly as ammunition against me. Over the months, I had semi-consciously permitted myself to be weakened both physically and emotionally. Thoughts of Prince Hans and King Stefan swirl through my mind repeatedly....

Somehow, I have attracted this Jekyll and Hyde situation a number of times in my life. So, whatever it is in me that was calling that, I am so ready to release it. Like the feelings that no longer served me in my previous blog post, it’s time to Let It Go!

Hear Elsa’s voice in Frozen singing determined…. “Funny how some distance makes everything seem small. And the things that bothered me can’t get to me at all. Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know…….” What was I concealing? I was beginning to conceal my magnificence. In the process, I had to a certain extent not feel to have any sense that any of this was alright at all. Constantly second guessing myself, I was getting to the point I no longer even trusted my own intuition. Finally, I was able to make some distance from this dark situation physically.
It took weeks of cocooning in safe loving refuges to put the necessary distance emotionally and spiritually though. I am starting to feel more like my authentic magnificent self every day and can, once again, courageously declare….. “You have no power over me!” Yet one more situation transcended by the Light!








Are you living in your magnificent authenticity? Are the people surrounding you supportive and reflective of your own bright light? Are you being who you truly are or someone you feel you need to be for others? As someone able to see many angles of this human existence, perhaps I can guide you to a higher, more genuine way of living. If this stirs something deep inside you, with hopes of more fulfilling possibilities, perhaps Wellness Coaching via Phone is for you. If so, I look forward to your email and would be honored to serve you.

I have now reached the place again of clarity and remembrance of contracts made before arriving on planet earth. In this knowing, I am extremely grateful for all who have played their unique parts so perfectly thus far in my life.
Walking through both the Dark and Light has enabled me to reach a more profound level of BEING than ever. The world continues to brightly transform through the eyes and heart of deep compassion and loving kindness. A huge thank you especially to all you Earth Angels who have lovingly supported me through this experience. Waves of appreciation, also, to all my Mermaid, Dolphin and Fairy Friends.
