Waiting or Living?

Are you waiting on something or living your life now? Some people are so desperate for things to stay the same – to stay or be “normal”. Others are waiting for things to change. Are you waiting for the perfect job to feel fulfilled? Perhaps when the perfect person shows up in your life – then you’ll be happy? Are you in a holding pattern waiting for the world to change? We don’t know what’s around the corner and it’s certainly natural to hope and dream. In fact, dreaming is definitely encouraged! However, there are infinite things in your life at this very moment to enjoy and be grateful for! It’s simply a matter of where you put your focus. Note that simple isn’t always easy, especially when in the popular habit of being caught up in the drama of the world. Remember you get to choose which mask you put on – which filter you choose to view life through. 

While we obviously don’t need a holiday to come around to notice and be thankful for our blessings, sometimes a special day serves as a good reminder if we get in a rut and forget.


My “thankful for” list is endless regarding past, present and future! My many times in Hawaii have helped enhance my aloha and mahalo spirit. So many encounters with people and nature, including dolphins, have been beyond magical. Some of my most cherished times were with Lokelani as my gracious host. She and her

precious daughters remain forever in my heart. Lokelani’s beauty and talents are endless. To support her, while encouraging you to enhance your own health, I share that Loke (among other things) is a distributor of essential oils – doTERRA. If you aren’t already devoted to a distributor or are new to doTERRA, read what Lokelani has to say:

I personally love a number of doTerra’s oils and blends. For those who have challenges in being highly attractive to certain miniscule flying vampires I highly recommend TerraShield - doTerra’s repellent blend!

With holidays ahead that often involve gifting to others, I’d like to remind you of many lovingly, hand-crafted beachy Gifts From The Sea available.






















Will wrap up continuing to focus on an Attitude of Gratitude …. Some of my readers have been friends since childhood. A number have known me through business as I raised my children. Some have known me since I began my wanderings as a gypsy. Then, there are those of you are reading my writing for the first time here. Whether we have known each other for decades or just recently connected, you all hold an important part in my life and, hence, in my heart. Words cannot express my gratitude for you joining me on this journey and the unique part each and every one of you play. Wishing you much joy, peace and delight as you continue to manifest your own magical journey unfolding before you each and every blessed moment.

Behind That Mask

Click to get on Poshmark

Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players…”. Quite profound when you think about it. We are all actors starring in our own play – the story of our lives. You might say we keep changing our masks as we play child, parent, student, teacher, musician, scientist….

Right at this moment, most people wear a mask around others. Who is behind that mask? Is there an abandoned child? A scared victim? A guild-ridden individual? An angry or disappointed person? Is your countenance so placid, a person walking unconsciously by wouldn’t notice the joy you carry within? Perhaps you sport a smile so contagious one would have to struggle not to return it? Whatever appearance we are wearing on the outside, doubtless it conceals numerous layers beneath.

 Buy Mask on Poshmark

I’m not suggesting you should wear your heart on your sleeve or let everyone you encounter privy to all the details of your life. There is only one person for whom all those details are important. There is only one person who needs to be aware of what is fully behind that mask. That person is You! The challenge is when you have been wearing a mask so long for others, that you bury your true feelings from yourself – believing the mask is who you are.

Some make a daily practice of weighing in on how you feel. You make choices taking stock of your inner state and needs as well as logic. Congratulations. You are more attuned with what lies within you than most. Generations have been conditioned to follow orders with no regard to how they feel. Many have lived believing everyone else’s needs came before theirs – even if it meant their needs never, or rarely, got met. These situations are so “normal”, they don’t even realize they are wearing a mask. They hardly know who they really are deep inside. Wherever you are on the scale of tuning in or tuning out, perhaps this message will serve as the invitation for you to go deeper. To ask yourself who you are and who you want to be in this life. Set aside some quiet time just for you to contemplate how to BE more authentically YOU. 




In the spirit of our topic, I am offering a pair of Comedy and Tragedy cufflinks for sale. Obviously, they can be used as actual clothing accessories, or creatively in your décor as a reminder to self. Seeing them will bring your consciousness to what you are projecting vs what you are actually feeling. Contact if interested.




I’m ba-a-ack. For a while I was somewhat out of technology range. If you feel you could use a bit of guidance negotiating this interesting new world – this stage on which we currently live, I am available for WellnessPhone Coaching for a limited time. Please read about and contact me to determine if appropriate for you at this time.



Halloween is almost upon us! Frightening how fast that seemed to happen again! Enhance your décor with a scary Coral ghost or perhaps unique spooky shells. Maybe start your holiday shopping at Gifts From The Sea and Other Treasures. We also post lots of pretties on our fb page so check out our pics.



Continuous Appreciation and Blessings to brighten your day.....Namaste ~

Total Recall


“I wish I could remember how to bi-locate. I long for the time I could communicate telepathically.” People think I’m joking or have a screw loose when I let things like that slip. Admittedly, I have more than a few screws loose or I
would be able to access all my abilities. And it’s not that I have any more abilities than others. We all have the capacity for such. I am simply one of the many who have remembered doing these things while others think it a flight of fantasy. I also know it is possibly to reacquire, or remember, those innate abilities. It is as if a spell falls upon us when we are born - albeit Children of God - sending our infinite knowledge into oblivion. The challenge, should we choose to accept it, is to find our way past the veil back into remembrance. There have been a number of masters on this planet who have not only done this but dedicated their lives to showing the rest of us how we can too.

Have you ever had a dream of flying? Or playing with fire? Or some other seemingly impossible skill? Is playing a specific instrument as natural as walking to you? Have you seen small children extremely gifted in music, dance or science beyond belief? While there are other possible explanations, one possibility for all these situations is that you, or they, have engaged in these activities in another lifetime or dimension.

On the topic of other dimensions, recently a very dear Aunt returned


Home – to a reality many call Heaven. While sad for those left behind, I celebrate her beautiful life with gratitude and smiles. She was so loving, caring and kind….and fun to be around. I was privileged to get a peek at her welcoming Home party including many relatives awaiting her with “open arms”. Another awesome gift is that I can still communicate with her now, even better in some ways, than before. A massive, towering cloud shaped like an angel appeared at the sunset I experienced just after her passing. It brought me such joy and deeper feeling of my Aunt’s presence with me even now. No doubt, many of you reading this have had a sense of a Loved One who is on the Other Side. Perhaps seeing a bird, a butterfly or a dragonfly is significant with regard to that person. Maybe you catch a certain familiar scent in in the air.  Maybe you hear a phrase particular to your Dear One that brings their presence to you in a very visceral manner. These are instances you have made a connection inside to access information not commonly known or accepted. And this is just the magical tip of the proverbial iceberg! I invite you to join with me in uniting, in spirit, to our Loved Ones in the Great Beyond. In connecting to our ancestors, we are able to remember more our own aspects of Divinity. We strengthen our recognition to the part of us that is the image and likeness of God. And when that happens, the remembrance of our divine abilities gradually returns and we exponentially make this world a better place.
I love this memory of my Aunt interacting with 
one of the newest members of the family at the time.

Much of the masters’ teachings were by example and metaphor. When he was performing his “wonders”, Jesus said, “This you shall do and more”! With our senses dulled due to programming, disuse and disbelief….it’s difficult to contemplate the truth of our limitless abilities. Limitless, that is, unless we somehow put those limits on ourselves! Let us acknowledge the God-seed within us. While we may yet be “walk on water and move through walls” masters, there is master enough within us to be shining examples to others. There is master enough within us to lift our fellow brothers and sisters. There is master enough within us to the BE the Change we want to see in this world.


For decades, one of my mottos has been, “Memor Valde vel Egressus in Pacis”. And no, don’t go trying to find the author, I composed it for myself. That worn card has traveled with me everywhere I’ve roamed since I made it. Evidently, I still have more work to do here. I am filled with gratitude for the powerful remembrance I have gained and continue to daily. It definitely puts a different twist on this life than the majority of humanity perceives. Most of us will not experience “total recall” of who we really are and the fullness of our abilities until we cross to the other side of the veil. But wouldn’t it be awesome if we could master at least some of that while still in this existence?


Shifting topics, Megalodon sharks are giants we remember now thanks (among other things) to their teeth that continue to be found to this day. I’ve been amazed by the many different ones I’ve found (in the thousands by now) and shared with more people than I can count. Please enjoy some of the crafty ways I have used them and contact if you’d like to acquire. Other handcrafted, one of a kind, treasures are also available on etsy  https://www.etsy.com/shop/GiftsFromTheSeaShop







As always, infinite gratitude for continuing on this journey with me. You are a very important part of this lifetime. You have affected this planet greatly and have great potential in the next wave that is coming. Choose wisely how you are going to use your God spark. Remember powerfully.

I SEE YOU!
Namaste ~

Love or Fear?


In your day to day life, are you coming from love or fear?
Are you living fearfully in a pandemic or peacefully in a beautiful world?
Abraham, via Esther Hicks, reminds us, “Never face reality unless your reality is just the way you want it to be.”

I understand it can be tough when you are in the midst of a major challenge to see beyond it. But the more you focus on that “reality” and, in a sense, argue for it, the more that will be your experience. So how do you shift a reality when almost everything around you reinforces it? You use your free will to focus on the aspects you desire – aspects that bring you joy- and use your imagination to create more of those. Concentrate intently on the exquisite beauty
of flowers you enjoy or marvel over an ancient tree. Really savor a delectable favorite food – anticipating it, relishing it with your senses, and being grateful after. Let yourself to be hypnotized by ocean waves,
a flowing stream or even a recording of such. You get the picture. Allow yourself to notice something difficult only if there is an immediate action you need to take in the moment to mitigate it.
Otherwise, simply observe your monkey mind wandering off on its own and Let It Go. Intentionally redirect your attention to something desired or appreciated be it “real” or imagined.
Remember, your mind does not distinguish between what is “real” and that which is vividly imagined.

It also helps to state things in the positive such as, “I am vibrant and healthy!” vs “I’m so grateful I’m not sick anymore!”  However, the latter sure beats a prophetic mental recording of, “I always get sick!” Being vigilant with regard to our thoughts and words really does make a powerful difference.

Knowing the Universe reflects what you put out into it, it’s best not to report “negative” facts to others - unless they can help you improve your situation or you help them better theirs. Perhaps they have a connection to solve your difficulty. An example of how you might assist someone by sharing your story: “I had a similar computer issue like you are describing and the amazing techs at Axicom resolved it like magic!”

A vast number of people are “stuck” in a fearful or victim reality because they are addicted and/or don’t know any other way. You probably know people addicted to drama. As you are aware, most drama is not perceived as particularly positive. For much of humanity, a certain traumatic or fearful way of life is all they have known. These people, collectively, have a difficult time fathoming existence can be any other way. First, someone has to wish for a better situation. Next, they have to have a glimmer of hope that it might be possible. Often baby steps are necessary although overnight shifts are possible. Part of living in love involves expecting “miracles”.

Another helpful thing to remember is that things/events are not inherently good or bad but our perception makes them so. For instance:
The bad news is I didn’t have my computer for several weeks due to technological issues so couldn’t do my usual activities. The good news is I didn’t have my computer for several weeks so couldn’t do my usual activities. I could go on and on bemoaning my woes resulting from not having my computer. I could also expound on the numerous silver linings resulting from not having my computer. While I did have a few rough moments, most of the time I was able to put my attention on the bright side.

By your example, are you teaching your kids or others you influence that things are awful and frightening? Or do you emphasize the wonder and excitement of what is? As you go about your day, think about pausing before you take action as often as possible. (New habits can take a while to form.) In that pause, ask yourself, “How would this look, if I approached it from a place of love and peace? What action might you take, coming from love, that would brighten others’ lives?
As per the mirror and ripple effects, this exponentially enhances your life and the rest of the world! Pretty spectacular don’t you think? Perhaps, as you move through your day more mindfully, you will notice the situations you typically approach through fear and worry. Stop! How can you turn them around? What new order/request would you like to put out to God/ The Universe with your intentions?

One way I am helping spread the love is by raising awareness about a relatively new platform called Sharebay.org It’s kinda like ebay but everything is offered free! Products and services freely given from the goodness of peoples’ hearts. Sharebay, is a completely free, community-powered library of anything. Right now you can get everything from free land to free graphic design services; free gardening help to free video games - even toilet paper! :)
I like to think of it as a 'safe space' where those of us who dream of better things can begin manifesting a free and open access economy by sharing goods and services among each other today. Our motto is 'Give what you can, take what you need.' ”
  Colin Turner (founder)


I would also like to share with you one of my recent masterpieces…. Sirena ~ Mystical Mermaid Queen. She is a OOAK (one of a kind) mermaid doll. Adorned with shells and jewels of the sea, she sits atop her coral throne. Even the piece of seaweed draped over the coral is delicately hand crafted. From her crown to her necklace to the variety of shells in her hair, the detail is exquisite! She holds aloft her magical conch as she shimmers in hues of purple, lavender and pearly pink in the sun. Is she really sitting there or is she your imagination?! 






This is a "sneak preview" before she is offered at our Gifts From the Sea Shop. Please contact if you are interested in acquiring her for yourself, your Little Mermaid or another friend of the sea.

Many thanks to all who have purchased Gifts from the Sea and Other Treasures. Big appreciation also to all who have supported my unique journey in so many generous ways. Sending out Oceans of Love from Me to You…..
