If I’d Have Known…..

If I would have known the outcome of my first marriage, I never would have married. If I knew what awaited me in Florida, I never would have moved there. If I knew what would happen throughout my second marriage, I certainly would not have married again. If I knew where my move to Panama would lead, I would never have braved that fateful journey with my six suitcases in tow. If I knew the upcoming happenings in Costa Rica, I wouldn’t have traveled there either.

If I’d have known the region name, Manabi, meant desert, I definitely would not have come. Things would certainly have made more sense to me as I puzzled at the less than desirable dry surroundings when I landed in Manta, Ecuador and during the taxi drive to Puerto Cayo. That was just the beginning of the interesting surprises for me there. If I’d have known how things would develop, I never would have come.

Here in Ecuador unfolded another case of someone misrepresenting their situation. I flew off to assist at a “resort” with a “restaurant”. Upon my arrival, I found the place to be neither. “Little Me” wanted to turn around and run someplace else.
Regardless of those feelings, I still could have assisted. I could have helped change the tide. In spite of all my dedication and efforts, there were no apparent significant shifts. The owner simply wasn’t ready……or perhaps he was! Maybe he was perfectly ready to provide me with those exact circumstances for my growth. There is no victimhood for me and I realize, on some level, I create or co-create my circumstances. This scene in the play of my life fulfilled many purposes. One of these was to strengthen my conviction that I can, not only handle anything that comes my way, I can walk through it in peace and joy. My monkey mind screams, “Here we go again. What’s the matter with you? Don’t you get it yet?” Yet nothing is the matter. All is well. Maybe I don’t get “it” all yet but my connection to Source allows me to know I am still on the right path for me.

Los Suenos del Mar was exactly where I was supposed to be at the time even if it didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. The “Dreams of the Sea” part was clearly one of the greatest gems of my experience there. My room backed directly onto the wide expanse of beach so the lullaby of the waves was a soothing constant. No matter what was going on, that one simple factor kept me in peace always. Throughout my stay, I had a no doubt knowing that it was where I was “supposed” to be. A number of details sparkled showing me some of the reasons for my presence/presents. Alyssa was another work exchange person very briefly there with whom I made a warm connection. Mary, originally from Texas, had Providence lead her to building her house in the development right next door….and meeting me on the beach. We brightened each other’s lives in more delightful ways than I can count. The Universe sometimes operates in mysterious ways. I had put out the desire to remember and reconnect with my power and previous wisdom regarding crystal energy. To my complete amazement, I discovered dozens upon dozens of quartz and quartz crystals on the beach.
Numerous varieties included amethyst, rose, amber and, of course, white. Quartz is often referred to as the Universal Crystal because of its many uses. It enhances energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, focusing and transmitting. It channels universal energy. Quartz also enhances thoughts, as they are a form of energy. Because it directs and amplifies energy, it is extremely beneficial for manifesting, healing, meditation, protection, and channeling. From the magical crystal abundance on the beach I joyfully collected many for unique gifts, personal use and perhaps other reasons yet to be shown me. I’m not so sure of any impact I may have had on the people of Suenos del Mar. I worked my best to assist them but it was their choice to keep doing the same things that kept them in the same place. I believe this aspect was maybe more for me than for them. Many times in my past I have worked to help people shift and empower themselves only to have them keep going in their own circles. Perhaps it was for me to recognize the situation around certain peoples’ choices, know when I could do no more for them and move on…in peace. When I shared this with a friend, she complimented me on recognizing the pattern within weeks instead of years. Evidently I don’t need to keep “repeating” that one.

If I’d have known in advance….that’s just the thing. I had no idea and that is the blessing. I was meant to go all these places and have all these experiences for my highest good and that of all around me. For example, if I hadn’t married the first time, my beautiful daughter and son would not be here now…..and I know they certainly wished to play on Planet Earth!
While my human self would have made way different choices with a properly functioning crystal ball, the part of me that is divine sees how perfect every step of my journey has been and continues to be. Sometimes I’m privy to see the peoples’ lives I’ve touched in profound ways. Occasionally I feel like I am in on the itinerary that I realize I myself created. And constantly, should I choose to stand in appreciation, I can see beauty and miracles along the way in every situation I have been in. Indeed I have been blessed with an exceptional holiday gift in my current location. But that's a story for another day!

Thank you for your constant accompaniment of this journey. It is my sincere hope that my experiences have edified and perhaps let to some brighter ways in your life as well. If it resonates with you, perhaps now is a good time to investigate a ways to support you and your loved ones health Juice Plus and/or the Tower Garden. It would be a positive gift for yourself and the Planet as well as assisting me in my travels. You will probably find all the info you need to decide via the links. If not, feel free to email me

Wishing You the most Joyous Magical Holiday Season! Abundant Blessings of the Sea to You and Your Loved Ones!

The “T” Word

After my daughter’s wedding in August, I had no clue what was next. I was totally operating on what a Soul Sister and I refer to as the “T” word. Friends of my blog know I have referred to this before….T standing for Trust. For the most part, I am becoming somewhat of a master in knowing what step I should take next and trusting in the Universe that step is always in the perfect direction. The perfect direction, that is, for my highest good and that of all I encounter. It may not always
appear that way to my human self or others but sometimes God operates in mysterious ways. During this time, I got to see a few wonderful friends and previous clients as well. I was blessed to enjoy time with my family too. Among other joys, this was the greatest Halloween for me with my precious
kids since they were young. Even I dressed up for the occasion as tenacious Princess Leia – perfectly outfitted by my daughter down to the cinnamon bun wig and attending my son’s pumpkin carving and Halloween parties.

Among the situations I encountered, writing came up in a number of ways for me. The future will show if I am to pursue any of them. Travel writing may be one avenue for me. I would like to develop my blog a bit more as well. In the past I have put it out there, but am doing so again as it keeps showing up. I am looking for someone with excellent web design skills who will help me put together a blog similar to my friend Nora, The Professional Hobo , whom I admire greatly for many reasons. I am great at writing content but don’t have the time or desire to do the design or other techy stuff required for this to be successful. While I do enjoy and will continue to provide services and goods in trade, this kind of website would enable me to make some money for the needs I have in this life that still require it. This evolved tech expert would be willing to donate, trade or generously discount his/her work if interested. Any leads toward this end are greatly appreciated.

Speaking about God/Goddess operating in mysterious ways…..I have been researching numerous locations in different countries for various prospects over a decade now. My inspired Tropical Dolphin Retreat pushed me to start looking for appropriate locations, possible opportunities for me to partner or learn what I’d need to proceed or places to care-take to assist me in such. It is just wild that, after all these years and research, I’d just now come across 2 websites (that have been around for years) that would initiate the next chapter of my journey – and . Within weeks, I found the websites, joined and, with the aid of my Angels, was off to my next destination. Here’s a tease about where that is…..a snippet of what my current host posted on one of the sites: Beachfront hotel in need of 2 to 4 helpers to cook, wait tables and maintain the restaurant, clean guest rooms, clean up beachfront and hotel grounds, water plants, tend to the bar, check guests in and out, etc. We also have 13 hectares about 45 minutes away by car that we are turning into a permaculture food forest and we need workers to help with planting, water and energy systems, and the construction of housing on the property.

So here I swing in a tasseled hammock, palm fronds waving in the salty breeze above me, listening to
the constant lullaby of the sea……
Life is but a dream and Trust sure helps to make it a delightful one!

Que Sera Sera

Whatever will be, will be…. While the future is not always ours to see, we do have a lot of impact on what “will be” and on what we focus on.

The butterfly said to the sun, “They can’t stop talking about my transformation. I can only do it once in my lifetime. If only they knew, they can do it at any time and in countless ways.” ~Dodinsky~ I got this loving reminder from one of my beautiful SeaStars, Tania Marie’s blog . I do not know exactly what is in the future but I can make infinite choices in my NOW! So I am choosing to focus on as much beauty and delight in every moment…. Hearing the roar of ocean waves, inhaling the delicate scent of jasmine, allowing my heart to be melted by a baby’s smile, savoring the taste of rich, dark chocolate, being rushed by a new puppy wiggling up for some love, witnessing a glorious multi-colored sunset
over the sea….. In my world, like perhaps yours, many challenges arise. Situations abound that aren’t my preference and the unknowns of the future can take up precious space in my awareness. It is at those times I make a conscious choice to transform myself by shifting my attention to what delights me and what I am grateful for.

“Que sera, sera” also reflects my grasp of the Spanish language…Somewhat improper. A few folks may notice that the phrase and title of the popular 1956 song are not grammatically correct in Spanish, Italian or French. Years ago I started learning Spanish with a recorded program only to be told by a Spanish speaking individual that no one really speaks “like that”. I have found, first hand, while Mexico, Puerto Rico, Panama, Costa Rica and other countries all speak “Spanish”, they do not all speak the same language – so much so that “Spanish” speaking people from different countries don’t always understand each other! While I still play with a little Spanish here and there, I have postponed any more serious learning until it looks like I may be in a certain Spanish speaking country for an extended period of time. And why do I even bring this up? Because that particular song inspired this blog and almost all the places I have been guided to (aside from Florida and Hawaii) have been Spanish language countries. I still have a sense there will be a Spanish influence in my future and it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

My recent travels have taken me to Ventura County, CA.

So many gifts were bestowed on me both directly and indirectly by my gracious hosts in Ventura. I was blessed with much quiet time which always helps me renew and remember powerfully. Since the beach was close by, I indulged daily – sometimes twice a day. While my dolphin friends seemed to hide from me most of my stay, they certainly made it up to me with a grand finale the day I left…putting on quite a show and interacting with me for over an hour. Of course, my interaction was from the shore as this is still California (and I wasn’t wearing a wetsuit). It was, however, unseasonably warm in general for the area while I was there which made it perfect most of the time for me. As with everywhere I go, I had the opportunity to meet and interact with several people in remarkable ways confirming the
“rightness” of where I was….when I was. I put myself in line for “whatever will be…..”. I aligned my choices with the infinite possibilities of the future to have the beautiful, touching, fun and surprising outcomes that I was fortunate to experience. Because of my choices, I was able to assist and contribute in so many ways I thoroughly enjoyed. Yet all this unfolded a little at a time. I didn’t know much in advance how anything would look. That’s how I go with the part– “the future’s not ours to see”.

I invite you to join me in dancing in the NOW, enjoying the moment as best as we possibly can and align ourselves with the outcomes we desire each and every moment! I am currently aligning myself with my next tropical journey
and, in the meantime, focus on all my blessings in the now. If you think you are ready for a bit of a shift in your life and would like some “out of the box” guidance, I am currently available for Telephone Wellness Coaching. This is a limited time offer (not like the hyped invented limited time offers to manipulate you into taking immediate action – it’s just the way it is) as my travels do not always accommodate the necessary communication. My commitment to you as a guide is paramount and you will get phenomenal results when we work/play together. For more details go to

I can never express my appreciation enough in words but my heart does an excellent job of swimming in gratitude for all of you, my supporters and Angels!!
Enjoy your journey this moment today and make the best of…whatever will be.

Mission Unclear?

Of course my primary underlying life mission is 100% clear. It is to Love……to shine Light….to assist humans in Awakening… help Elevate the vibration of Gaia. From this standpoint I always know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, I am always in the absolutely perfect place in the absolute perfect Divine time.

What is sometimes unclear to me is the Illusion of things happening around me and what I sometimes think they mean. This happened recently when I thought I was going to Florida to acquire a property for the start of my Tropical Dolphin Retreat. It was a delightful property I had been in love with since

I first set foot on Casey Key, Florida in 2005. It is a charming 4 unit complex right across the street from the beach and on the bay with a place to dock 3 boats in back. I had even managed this lovely spot for vacation rentals back in 2010-2011. A crazy amazing series of events brought me to the point of driving from CA to FL with the main goal (in my mind) to get this property back in June. I had been researching and taking the steps of due diligence for over a month prior. It continued in my initial days in Florida as well. There were quite a number of Earth Angels helping facilitate my adventure throughout all this. I found it interesting that in one short hour the apparent “mission” peaked and fell. A unique way to possibly pull the deal off appeared followed immediately by information that made it clear to me I would not be able to operate as I desired from it. While it would have been nice for the Retreat location to finally be landed, I wasn’t greatly disappointed. This type of thing has happened to me so many times over the past 5 years – getting really close to something happening and then it simply disappearing – I venture to say I am almost used to it.

While I thought the mission was landing the property, that was just a means for me to be in the various “right” places I was supposed to be at the right times. Over and over, events happened that clearly shouted to me, “This is why you are here!”. As has also happened in all the places I’ve traveled before, there were a number of individuals who had a big opportunity for a shift through my presence but who chose to stay asleep or comfortably where they were familiar. It’s all good though as all choices are honored. Everyone is on their own individual journey on this planet of free will with the prerogative to make up their own mind every single second. For me, I celebrated the ways I was able to help and sent love and light to all regardless of their choice at the time.

Since the Tropical Retreat location was no longer imminent, I busied myself planting seeds to see if it was appropriate to return to the area later. I say return as I already committed to drive back to California in the beginning of August. I got back just in time to do a little pre-wedding activity with my daughter. A few days later, I drove, with my parents, to Nevada where the wedding was held. The area held special sentimental meaning for my daughter, Natasha, and her now husband, Neil.   Disney Princess was one of the descriptions for Natasha I heard a few times and she was definitely delighted to be marrying her Prince.
In a black and white affair with accents of Tiffany blue, much merriment was had. I send them much Love and wish them both “Happily Ever After”. Back to the seeds I was planting near Casey Key in Florida….. I am now in another familiar place of not quite knowing what’s next. I have many, what I will call, partial possibilities. There are possibilities of non-traditional places to stay and ways to sustain myself but nothing fully encompassing, conclusive or that gave me a strong indication that I would be coming back soon. There have also been some clues that point to Costa Rica or Panama or ??.

As I have eluded before, the one thing I always, always know for sure is my very next step. This week, I am house-sitting for my daughter in California. Will be interesting to see what next week holds but, for NOW, I am living in the moment, listening to my guidance and being the best me I possibly can. Yes, I am clearly right on target with my “mission”!

Again I wish to thank all of you who have graced my live by following and supporting my journeys. Some are curious, some are inspired, some are here to learn, some are entertained, some wonder how I can pull this all off, some check in to see where in the world I am – whatever category you are in, I appreciate the blessing you are in my life! If we haven’t connected in a while, would love to hear an update from you as well :-)
