In my hands, I am creativity.
In my body, I am joy.
In my service, I am here for you.
In my heart, I am a mother's love.
In my voice, I am a teacher.
In my mind, I am divine.
In my soul, I am listening.
In my spirit, I am infinite.
You do not need to look further than your own body and your own life to witness the Divine made manifest. This teaching is at the core of all that I do as a practitioner, mentor and guide.
Many of us grow up inside of an unconscious belief system in which Heaven and Earth feel separate.
Were you taught that God/Goddess/The Divine is somewhere else?
Do you struggle with feeling unworthy of a relationship with the Divine?
Does your connection to the Divine feel lost or as if there are requirements or conditions placed upon it?
During private sessions and trainings with me, we work directly with healing this perceived divide so that you may more fully embody your spirit, awaken to the beauty of your soul and live the purpose for which you were born.
Another theme that repeats again and again in my work, is to consciously engage cycles which take us from a "seed" moment to a "bloom" moment, and then back again to seed.
The Lunar Cycle in which we experience a New Moon and a Full Moon each month is a wonderful example of a seed to bloom cycle that is witnessed in the sky over and over again. The question is- are you paying attention?
By engaging in this practice, your experience of time may expand to include both a linear, results-driven perspective as well as a more circular, process-oriented perspective.
Asking yourself, "Where am I in the process of creation?" along with "What am I trying to achieve?" brings about subtle shifts in your awareness which grow into profound change.
We are all born from a blend of masculine and feminine energies. The Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine energies are not opposites; they are complementary to each other.
The Divine Masculine takes action in the world and the Divine Feminine is the force behind the action. The Divine Masculine provides the pathway and the Divine Feminine is the energy that flows into the pathway.
Returning to questions from the paragraph above, "Where am I in the process of creation?" and "What am I trying to achieve?" - you may be able to see that these questions are rooted in the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine, respectively.
This is not an "either-or" stance. Hold both. Balance them. This is so empowering and I love to share this with people and watch their lives transform.
Prayer works. Meditation works.
I believe wholeheartedly that there are Divine Beings- angels, ascended masters, star beings, gods and goddesses- that absolutely want to help you realize your highest and truest potential. All you need to do is ask and invite them to guide, empower, protect and assist you in all ways.
Sincerity is key. Showing up is essential.
I HAVE BEEN STUDYING THE MIND, BODY, SPIRIT CONNECTION for more than 20 years. Astrology and Reiki have transformed my life. This is why I am so passionate about sharing it with others.
My biggest shifts in awareness have come from understanding how the planetary energies show up as my inner dialogue, and how they influence my everyday life. This is why I encourage clients to purchase a bundle of astrology consultations…so that we can partner with each other and observe the birth chart over a period of time.
I am a mother to two teenagers (currently 17 and 15), whom I love with all of my heart. I use astrology in parenting all of the time. Astrology helps me understand what my children are going through, and Reiki offers healing, guidance, and empowerment to our every day life.
I studied rebirthing and breathwork for over 15 years at a time in my life that was very formative. The practices and experiences from that time of my life continue to be a significant part of my personal practice. I continually lean into my breath as the primary bridge connecting body and spirit.
I see things and hear things within my heart and mind all of the time. This is a gift, and I see it as such. Many of us are taught that this is not okay, or we are discouraged from talking about it when it happens. I truly believe that these gifts are meant to be cherished and they are a skill that can be developed.
We will engage the Universal Flow of Life Force Energy available to you, and in the process, your awareness may expand and your understanding of your path may evolve.
We will explore the Birth Chart as a map of the soul, a guidebook for your authentic expression and unique evolution.
Using timing techniques in astrology, while also observing how planetary energies are presenting themselves in your everyday life, creates an experience that heals the perceived divide between self and spirit. This also informs the divine intelligence within you in a very practical way.
We will spend time together exploring your every day life experiences and how they relate to your birth chart. My intention is always to create a safe place for you to explore the mystery and miracles of your life.
In my continued Reiki training, I quickly discovered that it is a matter of listening, observing and trusting what arises within me. My core intention is to teach others how to do the same for themselves.
I believe wholeheartedly that the answers to each person’s authentic expression lie within the individual themselves. I will serve as a guide who continually points you back to yourself for your own answers.
The year was 1998.
I was a senior at James Madison University, and I was experiencing a rebirth fueled by the burgeoning New Age movement, a World Religions class I spontaneously signed up for at the last minute, and a green-eyed beauty named Sue. One evening, we sat in her room in front of her computer, she asked me when I was born, typed it into the computer, and the next thing I know, my birth chart popped up in front of me.
To say I was immediately fascinated, would really be an understatement. I was beyond fascinated. I was hungry.
STARVING, actually...and hadn't even realized it...for more.
I wanted to know as much as possible. I went straight to the book store and bought the book, The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need.
I read it daily, over and over again. I still have it here in my house somewhere with the stained pages falling out and scribbled notes throughout. I was like a sponge. I could not get enough.
One of the overarching themes of that time in my life was an overwhelming feeling of "why didn't any of the adults tell me about this stuff?" I just couldn't understand why things like acupuncture, astrology, meditation were not a part of my childhood, or mainstream culture, in general.
The months that followed and the learnings that came from this first encounter with my birth chart were formative times that changed my path forever. My inner compass was suddenly establishing itself in the orbiting planets of our solar system, and they would become a part of my consciousness forever. Well, they were already a part of my consciousness… however, now I was relating to them with more awareness.
It's amazing how one moment of genuine truth can change the trajectory of your life forever. That single moment planted a seed that continues to blossom to this day.
Thank you Sue!
It was 1999.
My first job out of college was at a little shiatsu school called Ohashiatsu Maryland in Ellicott City, MD.
One day I was driving along and saw the sign, OHASHIATSU MARYLAND, and thought to myself, “What is this place?”
When I entered the studio there was a little old Chinese woman sitting behind the front desk.
Her name was Hazel Chung.
She welcomed me in and answered all of my questions.
I had a lot of questions.
What is shiatsu?
What are meridians?
What is chi?
That was the beginning of my journey of working with the energy field of the human body.
Hazel became one of my first teachers.
I was 22 years old at the time. I'm almost 44...so that means I've been studying this stuff for half of my life.
Wow...that's a little crazy to me.
I can remember many emotions around this time of discovery, including anger and dismay at the fact that we were not taught these things as children or brought up with them as a normal part of our society.
I couldn’t understand why something that seemed so simple and so natural was not shared openly (and with celebration) for everyone to learn and enjoy.
Now, it’s twenty years later and as a parent, I have raised my children to know and experience the world of energy healing.
I have raised them to use their birth charts for guidance and acupuncture for maintaining their health and wellness.
Both girls have been receiving regular acupuncture appointments since they were in my womb.
They are now 12 and 14.
They don’t know a life without meridians and astrology.
This was something I decided way back when I landed at Ohashiatsu Maryland in 1999.
It may be a small part that I play but I’m playing all out. I've been playing all out for a long time. I’m aligned with my values and my truth and keep moving from that place.
The experiences I’ve been given in this life are cherished gifts and have lit a passion in me that carries me to this day. The way forward has always been shown to me. It has always just been up to me to recognize it, say yes and take the next step.
Thank you Hazel!
