I have been banned!
I have been banned from Facebook — known as Facebook jail. I have no idea why.
I posted last week asking how the pandemic lockdown was affecting your emotions. An hour and a half later I was unable to post — anywhere!
I am known for uplifting, inspiring messages reminding you of the intrinsic importance of the Sacred. I am known for my posts supporting you with holistic ideas around food, nutrition, essential oils, mindset and more. Hmmmm.
This experience, coupled with the social distancing, has shown me the value and importance of human connection. Especially now, in a day and age when we cannot be with anyone other than those who live with us in our household. If you are someone who lives alone, you are literally alone. So the next best thing is virtual connection — be in a Zoom, Skype, What’s App, Facetime, or whatever tech piece you use, that’s an option — a very good viable option.
The next connector is social...
I have many messengers of magic in my home that I have acquired over the years on my spiritual quest for wholeness.
One of the very first things I bought was a sweet, little hummingbird which hangs on a string from the ceiling. Today I took it down and dusted it off and I really looked at how beautiful it is and how for these many years it has given me the message of Joy. It has reminded me of the beauty not only of the hummingbird, but of life.
The piece is delicate, intricate and hand painted. It is truly a piece of art. It is very detailed and exquisite. There are many things that you can glean from this. You can glean not just the magic and message of hummingbird medicine, but when looking at the piece as art, you can access the pride that went into creation and painting of it. It’s interesting to realize that I have objects around my home and office that I know exactly where and when I bought them. Sometimes I even remember how much I paid for them.
Do you have things...
Have you ever been at the ocean and ridden a wave? It is not as easy as it is fun! If you don’t time it just right, you’re slapped on your butt! If your jump is not at the precise moment necessary, you’re slammed with a wall of water — and it’s jarring!
But! When you have practiced numerous times, and get the hang of it, well, it’s magic! You slide into the wave in perfect harmony and the awe, joy, exhilaration is just plain THERE. AND as a bonus, the wave takes you far!
As I write this it’s just past noon and twice already today the analogy of riding the waves has come up in conversation.
First in a podcast interview (stay tuned!) and the second in a coaching call.
The topic was Alignment. How do you know when you are in alignment? And the analogy I came up with was riding the wave….
Releasing a book into the world, or any other “Something” you are working on, has with it a lot of pressure, expectations...

I met Young Living Essential Oils about 20 years ago at an outdoor wedding at a park near a city lake. A little bottle was passed around the group — there were just a handful gathered — not more than 20 people or so. I recall asking what is this, but I don’t recall the answer.
Shortly after that I attended a Women’s Expo in downtown Minneapolis. Cherie Ross had a double booth at the end of a row. I remember being intrigued and somewhat mesmerized by all the different things. I stood looking at all the tiny bottles and she said “Go ahead. You can choose one and try it.” Well, I had no idea which way to turn or how to make a decision. In the end she suggested White Angelica.
I recognized the yummy-ness of it immediately because it was the same essential oil blend that had been passed around at the wedding.
I was hooked, although I didn’t know it yet.
I still have my first order copy.
What I remember most about Gary Young is how he made science...
In one of my Facebook groups the question was posed: What is your why? What is your driving force?
I found this question quite engaging… and had to pace. It’s not like I’ve never considered this before. It’s just how do I take a feeling and put words to it?
The first, most obvious answer, if we are all honest, is money. We have financial commitments from the basic food and shelter to the other things that bring pleasure like a nice meal out with a friend or a vacation with the family.
The obviousness aside, my WHY and driving force is the Evolution of Human Consciousness. That’s a mouthful, I know. I am not, however, a philosopher sitting in a stuffy, poorly lit office at the local university with books and papers piled high to the ceiling.
I am a humble servant doing my work, and I look just like you.
I approach the Evolution of Human Consciousness at the very basic level: food. I bring the awareness of my students to food and how it makes them feel....
I found a penny today.
An old, unattractive penny. It had probably survived all the snow and salt and was well, not so pristine.
It was the first thing I saw as I opened the car door. I was delighted.
And I decided to pick it up.
I saw it as a gift from the Universe. Here. A penny. It’s not bright and shiny, but it’s a gift. A penny. One cent.
The reason I am sharing in such detail is that usually I notice and leave it for someone else to find. I imagine someone like my sister who, when she finds a penny, is all excited and perhaps encouraged, because she sees it as a gift from her beloved dog who has crossed over. I imagine a child being very excited, bending over to pick it up and showing mommy….
But today, I changed my viewpoint.
This penny was for ME. I picked it up, said thank you and put it in my car.
At that moment I realized that all those times I noticed, did NOT say thank you, did NOT pick it up I was dissing God. I was saying it was too small for me...
