Snatched from the Fire

As this is the year ending ,it is also a new year begining . This book is written by someone I am very close too. She has a story to tell. It took seven years to write. She acknowledged me in this book I think that's an honor. Today is also very important because it is my sister's Birthday.
My greatest hope for the coming year for everyone is ,first peace that's a small word with many many meanings. Second is increased income. More love . and HEALTH happy new life

What a haul

Oh the day after. There is so much thought here. Shampoo for my hair, I may never have to buy shampoo again and even a suntan. Jewelry to dress me up, a little hard to see but I have two new rings a bracklet necklace and errings. Food to eat carmels and dried shrimp. A water bottle to quince my thirst .A hand made carrier for my camera. PJ's & slippers to keep me warm and comfortable. A hand made hanging quilt A hand to help me through. A hand made emborider picture framed. A CD to teach me to heal. A Chair to rest on. Stationary and notes to communiate.Now this all really does spell a lot of love. and that's all healing really is.

Birds of a feather

Even The birds can't Fly I put out some water and bread for them. I felt really bad a humming bird came to the feeder but it was frozen.
Wise little thing isn't he. he just knows the sun will shine soon.

Just loved this one my neighbors lights and the night sky,beautiful fir covered with snow. Of course I am really ready for the looney bin about now. We mostly likely will not have Christmas on the 25 th unless , we get a big surprise and warmth comes to visit us. one more lesson in natures mysteries.

Continuing Storm (For My Sisters)

Early morning light . The trees have a pink tone adding color from the sun rise.
And I thought a have a snow job yesterday. Man of the hour headed for Portland Airport.
Now what does this weather report have to do with healing? Ever notice how much patience you have when you can't do what you want. Nautre has a way of stopping us in our tracks. It says stop look and listen. So here I am doing just that.

Working on a White Christmas

It is 26 % and snowing . Anyone living where it snows thinks and so what. Here we just get rain 360 days of the year .
Man of the hour with his trusty snow shovel. All american with flag flowing. As the weather is changing so is life . Many storms on the horizons . Some days it seems the storm will last forever but it doesn't .The sun will shine and the birds will sing. The spring of our live in on the way.

Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice celebrates the return of light after the longest night of the year. It is a time of rebirth and new beginings. This is when the Goddess of winter start the cermony for a new year.

Snow Day

This is what you do when it snows. I usually do this with daughter & granddaughter 'See candy and blond fudge.'
There is just something so wonderful watching it snow. Seems to put a nice clean quiet blanket on the world. Now really is a time when we need the comfort of this silent blessing.

Sunday, December 14, 2008

Almost White Christmas

Oh the excitment of snow. it isn't often that we get snow . Fun time and for most it is an excuse to have another day at home. That extra time we don't expect . I am making Candy my Blond fudge was perfect the first time in years (so Ifelt hopeful). Maybe my healing has been all about making candy. Here I thought it was about becoming a guru. my Sisters think I'm a witch which is a good thing (Ithink .) There is a very real group of white witches. My nieghbor was a member , she was very funny she would call me for the full moon ceremony, if I didn't anwser my phone she woulld leave a message saying. I know your home so get butt over here. I would go for midnight dancing around the fire and chant our prayers howl at moon. Another road I have traveled looking for healing.

Tis The Season

Illusions, oh the Joy of the holidays. It is the time when we can dream of what we would like our christmas to be. Families all gathered with love and care. Of course the reality is we are all in some point of healing in all our relationships. So illusions are what bring the real sadness at this time. Not many of us have Norman Rockwell Christmas's . We just keep on working for more and that's what healing is all about.

Soul Food

The Sea has always called to me. I can feel everything in my body start to relax as soon as I smell the salty air. I love to sit on a piece of draft wood and meditate. I can feel my master's presents here. I am thinking I need to take me to the beach. I so need a renewal of spirit. I am decorating for Christmas and wondering why? We go through so work and effort for one day then load all the stuff for a year . The real decorations for me are the smiles of my friends . The laughter of my Great Grandson. The joy of seeing my Granddaughters creations. my daughter shopping for clothes. Now that's decorations.

Life's Path

The art of being alive is to continue to grow. Somedays that seems like a tall order.
I received a message that so touched me.. One of my sister's just had a heart attack which is so scarey. She is ok for now. Another sister sent a message which I think say's it all.( I think this sister of my mine does not know what a gap it will create in all ours lives if she in not here with us.)
Why do we not stop( tell those we love that we love them) and how important there life is to us. My Family has done more healing in the last three years than in a life time. It's never to late to say I love you. who you are and what you do is important .

Friday, November 28, 2008


Yestersday oh the big turkey day. We all get together and stuff overselves like the bird.
I love the little insights I sometimes get. We are all such mixed familes now. What are familes gatherings?( In today's moving ,traveling, divoricing world.) The thought I had from our gathering. One person in that room (while I was there) well this person was related to everyone . He has a rich family Two great grandmothers Two grandmothers One great uncle
one uncle one great aunt one aunt. One Grandfather One Dad one mom. I just thought what an amazing event. This little boy is so loved and cherished now. My greatest hope for him is in 20 years he will still be this loved. What a gift. Mr. Brice Lane

Healing Totem

Some people have these rock formations all over there yards, they are protection and
abundance for the land. So on this Thanskgiving day, I am building my mental rock formation
to heal that which is within.

Twin Rocks

This was the view of my weekend women's retreat. What a gift. Where we stayed is owned by Quakers . It took 5 years to get a weekend. My idea for going was to get some answers for my life. Very hard to meditate as my sister had a heart attack the morning I left, very stressful until I could find our how she was. . I met the most amazing woman I was so drawn to her. She works with abused and trauma victims. Her spirit was so bright she just had a glow about her. That may be the gift for my healing, just haven't put it together yet.

The Beauty of Water

This is a very peaceful picture. I seem to need many things to create the feeling of being at peace with myself. I believe the few moments of serenity I've had is this lifetime, is what keeps me seeking because I know what it feels like and I want more. Friday morning I am leaving for another beach retreat. I am at a crossroad (I need to make some big decisons .) So my hope is to receive some direction and guidance while I am away. so on with the healing path.

Blast from the past

When our family moved to camas Washington many years ago, we would drive by this place ( was 20 years plus ago ). This place was a mansion, the best home anywhere. We all had our dreams around this place. As my children grew and started making there own lives,( one thing has been very important to them all.) Live in the counrty and a have a very nice home. My daughters both live in the country and one has her mansion. The other stills likes where she lives in the country.
I believe driving by planning and thinking about this place helped to be a treasure map for them all . We just never know what gifts we get along the way.

An inexplicable new broad region auroral lights has been photgraphed at Saturns's polar caps.

This is totally new, I believe that this a great help being sent to us. More than most would
even realize. There are watchers and helpers who only appear when we are in great need. Some call them ascended masters. Some call them super angels ,whose task is only keep the energy supply for our world. I am celebrating this wonderful event.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008


This is the season of returning, of going within. We habornate to renew our souls.
With spring we have new ideas to plant. We then ready ourselves for the harvest.
My heart feels calmer. Have I excepted what I cannot change? Also maybe the wisdom
to know that. So the journey of healing continues.

Looking for Hope

I do love seeing the trees so beautiful. I am asking and looking for anything to help me find hope again. it's so very hard to even explain what I feel. This is on a deep phyic level. A feeling of doom. it reminds me of when I was very young. ( I saw one of the first TV's in a store they were really funny then. Big radio with a very samll screen. I thought I was just seeing something that was not real. A picture of a man talking about the world coming to an end. I thought about what I would miss the most when this happened. it was the stars so I stayed up all night because I did think it was the last night of the world. This is very close to the same feeling last of whatever was. The journey of the soul has so many events to see beyond . Hope this is a great awakening

Thursday, November 6, 2008


Illuisons are life's little gifts. if you look at this picture all seems a blur, Life on the surface is a seemly dim vison of what we are truly seeking. Everything is reflected by this little bit of water.
yesterday was a very low day for me.I haven't had that low or mental hanger over for a long time. My God shot for the day was.( when I am troubled I go to the river that wonderful Columiba. I found a place to park where there were no other cars alone at last. it was really raining I looked up and here was this woman late 20's or early 30's standing in a rain brushing her teeth, she had six plastic storage containers , one she was putting food away in the others she was arranging what was inside, she then washed her hair with the rain water, then took a spray bottle from container sprayed and combed her hair. I just watched her.
She did not look like a bum or druggie. she then porceeded to put these storage bins on rakes like we take the trash can out with. she started to leave pushing one cart and pulling the other it was a struggle to move this stuff. She obusively still had pride in her appearance and had all her worldly goods
What my message was (and I think I have problems) Also why do we struggle so to haul around all this useless stuff.) God sends angels with messages and anyway we can see. I am so thankful for this great message.

Healing the Land

I'm sure Framers know this, but was new and interesting fact for me. When land is in need
plant pumpkins to restore. It will even absolve poison. I'm thinking I wish we could plant pumkins all over the earth right now. Tomorrow's Election I believe will determine if this earth will start to heal.

Healing through Time.

Tonight I am writing about an old wound. Resently my Great Grandson was taken to the hosiptal. He is only 5 months old. Very long night for me. This event triggered something very long ago in my past. When I was six years old, my mother went into labor and sent me for the midwife. The neighbor's kids scared me as they always blocked my way and made fun of me.
Big hurtle had to get passed them to save Mom. I just stood and cried when they wouldn't let me pass. Their mother came out and I told her what was happening, she then helped me to get the midwife. I felt like this little Baby became mine. My sister Barbara Jean. I helped my oldest brother Fred bury the afterbirth. I loved this baby so much. She only lived 18 months. When she died I felt pain like I had never felt, that was the first time can remember I wanted anything to take the pain away.That is also when I decided that loving comlpetly was to painful to ever invest in again. When we went to her funeral I kissed her liitle head in the coffin. also sometihing I will never forget.
The healing of this story is with time ( we do recover and though it may take almost a lifetime) we do get to see that wounds heal and it is safe to love totally again.

Sacred Arm Band

This is a sacred arm band. It was given to me from my very special friend of of 24 years. This was the year she sun danced. It was worn the whole four days that she danced without food.
There is so much more about this dance but not mine to share. This band is filled with the prayers of sacred dancing . I am so very honored to recieve this gift. I am adding it to my altar toinght. Came just at the right time. My wonderful Grand Grandson spend the night in children hospital, looking for something wrong with him. I thank all the spirit for help last night. Scariest I have had in a long long time. This little man Brice has completley stole my heart.
My Altar is blessed with this gift , I am sure my life is now filled with many miracles.

An Altar

This is my personal altar. I think of it as a treasure map with demention. The wolfs are my Totem, they are my strength and guidance. The horse is from my daughter so it a part of her.
The crystal necklace is my spirit. the cyrstals are the cleaners of the universe. The egg is of the old world. A reminder to keep safe all that has went before us. The Eskimo is my gift to the world. My own creation. The card is limitless legions of angels. to surround all that I hold dear.
I believe altars are a very important part of daily living, if you look around your room which you create in, you will see your own altar. another tool for healing.

Treasure Map

This was my group project for the once a month spiritaul women. A treasure map is a lot of fun.
It is truly a map to recieve what we most want. I have treasure mapped for years. I pulled one out last night that I made 22 years ago . For fianincal Freedom. This Map is all about health of body, mind, heart and spirit. an tool of healing.

The Power of Intention Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

This is just another interesting way of looking at our own power. The ability to ask and recieve. I had a neat wonderful experience of ask and recieve right now. I was at the post office vista hallmark store. I had went to buy a box for item, no such luck so clerk gave a box. oh boy I'm in business ,then mail person wouldn't let me have tape. so back to nice clerk. She offered me tape but very old said if I could get it apart I could use, well 15minutes later I'm just about losing it. I just said a little pray,like I need help right now.( I looked up and here's this woman saying can I help you I'm good at this. ) She did and I sent my PKG. Lesson for healing techniques Truly ask and it shall be given right now.
Dr Wayne Dyer has been around for a long time, he is a very gifted man. I have always enjoyed his works.

Retreat Mug

This is by far the best cup I have recieved from a retreat. my picutre taking does leave a lot to actually getting a good picture of this . It is the Women's retreat Logo a mother and daughter did a painting fourteen years ago . Very beautiful to see painting. Staying in a cabin with Eight women and one bathroom is quite an experience. lots of give and take there, learning how to play well with others just another method of healing techniques.

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

Women's Retreat

One of my greatest healing techniques is to spend a weekend with a group of like minded women. Sharing from the heart our trials of the big hurts, the fear of family disaproval, sick husbands, just life stuff to share in a safe place. The fun of having all meals prepared for us.
not having to clean the cabins. Just a weekend to be free, to float down river. I am leaving Friday morning, meeting a group (at my favorite place) The old folks home PEACH TREE then caravan
to the beach. I hope to have great pictures for next week.

Esther & Jerry Hicks

These are remarkable people. The way they convey a message with spirit and humur.I love listineing to CD's I seem to go to sleep the minute I start to read. I'm in my car a lot so learn much as I drive a long. my Emotions have always been my guide. not that they were in line with a spiritual principal. I feel when anything is off, I can sense when someone is out of sinc.
After listineing to these CD's more than once. I just want all my thought to be down stream. Not fighting to keep going up stream, the battle of the ego, my soul likes the down stream flo.
My wish is that I could give this idea to just one person to see how the eyes light up with hope.
another day in the life of this Blogger

My Spiritual Spot

I spend a lot of time at this spot. I Love the Columbia River. The History of this body of water, as it just flows along. I am listening to cd's of Esther & Jerry Hicks. The Astonishing Power of Emotions.
They talk about the vibration of our being, and how flowing with the river and what happens (we Keep paddling up stream) how fighting or struggling with anything lowers our vibrations which keeps our peace from us.

Today I spent time with my daughter, granddaughter and great granson.The ease and peace I feel as I watch my granddaughter create yet another thing of beauty with cloth. My daughter with covering a chair for her sewing room. My Great grandson just to hold him or watch him smile. These are what I call High vibrations.
To be at Peace with my family is my greatest healing technique.

The Shack By William P. Young

I have just finished reading this book. The first five chapters are a slow start. It almost appears to have two writers or some devine intervention . As I continued to read this, of course The sadness is overwhelming for me. I seem to feel everything. This is a beautiful lesson in how we see it and how God see's it.
I was pleasantly and happly surprised, as this is what I have believed most of my life.
Too really see and live this can be so peaceful.
I work on all these principles everyday . I am a progress in the making.
I would reccommend this reading for any and everyone.

Friday, September 12, 2008

New Day( Picture found.) The beauty of this book even before I read it is how I received it. I called my Grandson-in-law to ask if he had this book he said yes and I could borrow it,When I went to pick it up, he gave it to me. The idea is now, I need to pass it on after I am finished. What a gift . Sharing and passing on love and & caring is the true miracle of healing.

Thursday, September 11, 2008

The Shack By William P. Young

Once again I have a picture floating round I'm going to have
to get lessons from Granddaughter(again) How to retrieve once I
On with the Shack I'm on Chapter two. so will keep writing my impressions
as I go along, so many people are so moved by this Book.
Just for me anything which modivates me ,to move to another place of belief and
hope, Is certianly worth my time to read.
I think the greatest spiritual gift is hope, as long as I can hope for more than just
the daily grind(truly believe in the miracles all around.) That 's the Gift,
Healing is total belief in what ever has touched the heart.

Reiki Buddy's

These are my Reiki Buddy's we meet once a month to work on each other. We all work with others. It is great to have them to talk about our work, what happens and how the energy
works with each of us. I feel the pain and it ache so much I have to shake my hands to change the energy, one feels the heat of the body hot spot and or cold spots, the other see images like water tree etc. It fun and excitng to compare notes. Any one came allow the energy to flow through them if they are willing to commit. Truly a wonderful experience . Trying to discribe an experince is very hard to put into words. This was just another fun evening with long time freinds. so another day in teh life to healing

Tuesday, September 2, 2008


In many cultures, animals are a very important part of daily life. Totems are made from wood
or a totem can be your spirit guide to help you through any problem, show you the way.
This happens to be my Totem. I think the wolf is so beautiful and wise. There eyes are filled
with such light . The healing is with those who dare to look.

This is the wonderous place that the hummers come to eat. I am not feeling very well so sitting around a lot . I got such a nice surpise. I was sitting in my chair in family room and there's a hummer looking in the window at me. he came back three times. I love these beautiful little beings.

Friday, August 29, 2008

Humming Birds

This is where I work on the Eskimo's. My granddaughter gave me a humming bird feeder for my birthday. The first day I worked on the patio, the hummer came and ate,then came over to look me over. I thought how cute. as the days have gone by when I go out the hummers come almost as soon as I'm out the door. I think they are blessing the Eskimo's. They are just pure energy.
Any way it is a real delight for me.


Today is very hard for this blogger. I have been working last night and this am to post a picture and it keeps saying error and won't post. now someone that can do this with ease, of course Blogging is fun . Wish I had that blogger sitting here with me .

Friends at the beach

I cannot imagine life without friends. We went to the beach for three
days with three other women. A party of six. watching movies, playing card doing our healings. Reading just so fun to be with and excepted for who we are and not have to entertain anyone, what a relief. just three days of good times, I long for more weekends like this one. The beauty of sharing and caring and everyone doing there share paying there way. We did pool for crabs and clams. What this all has to do with healing techenques is ( our greatest healing is with each other caring and sharing heals the wounded heart. The body works so much better when love is felt.
So another day of looking at life.

This picture has lots of memories

Picture was on a calendar I just loved it so I framed it, I was down sizing
once again I was going to get rid of this But it has returned to me. Brice really
liked it so the good memory is that he got to enjoy it. It's my way of remembering him each time I walk by as it is in my hallway now I think i'm just reviewing a lot these days just feels good to care. I just got home from a spiritual women's potluck another day in the life of this blogger. until tomorrow.

Monday, August 25, 2008


Today I have pictures somewhere in my computer. Blogging is not for the faint at heart. I just read an article that bloging is the future so not wanting to be left behind I'm working on it. picutes well I'm working on it.
This month I am celebrating (30 years of recovery from cancer).
When I was operated on I had a great experience I almost died I could see myslef below me and I knew I could stay or go. I didn't want to stay but I knew I couldn't leave my children so I ask that I could have an understanding heart. Now 30 years later I guess I would have to ask my friends and family if I made it.

Tomorrow I hope to post picutes until then I'm not giving up

The Power of Now

This is Eckhart Tolle a wonderful Spirited filled human being. I just did the 10 week series
with him. What a beautiful humble man. Eckhart was born in Germany and educated at the universites of london and Cambridge. when he was twenty nine a profound inner transformtion redically changed the course of his life. Since 1995 he has lived in Vancouver, Canada.
At the core of his teachings lies the transformation of consciousness. A spiritual awakening. I have searched most of my life to just have peace and a since of well being. I do find in my life a very deep hurt Which is so sad that only a personal transformation well help me to except what I cannot change. My love for my family is great . So is my sorrow. I just keep reading and looking for that which is truth for me . Eckhart thank you for my blessings today.

Ask Your Guides

I need a lot of work on taking pictures. I choose a card each day it always amazes me how
it fits in to my life. This Card is New life/Divine Mother
Whatever you seek to create, it's happening. The song in your heart will find it's voice; the poetry will be expressed. Even your professional goals will find a home in which to grow. The Divine Mother, is gracing your life right now,and with her influence you come alive. new life is on its way.


The word spirit or spiritual means many different things according to what each of
us believe .
I think of this as the (spirit of Creating) . Heart and soul are put into
whatever I am doing. A part of me is always going to be seen and felt. I have a quilt that
my daughter and granddaughter made for me for my birthday I use it for a lap wrap not a day
goes by that it is not draped over my body and I look at this cover as love .
The people I love and the warmth is far greater than just a quilt.
Today has been filled with calls from many with pain, I think my greatest creating is to just listen and care. That is the spirit of love. Whatever the creator belief is the force and energy
put into anything is never wasted. All this from looking at a sunset.

Monday, August 18, 2008


The story of the Eskimo (There once was a man in Alaska caught in a storm
in the wilderness without any hope of rescue. (He prayed, "God get me out of
this . Save me and I'll be your servant. Just then he heard a noise He looked up and saw
a dog sled with an Eskimo coming over the snow bank. The Eskimo put him in the sled
and brought him to town. later while recounting his experience, a man next to him
smiled and said "now you know and serve God." The man said "oh no", it was just an Eskimo
that came and brought me out."

For Everytime you pray may an Eskimo appear for you.

I heard this story 25 years ago at the time I thought what a great story, there
need's to be a doll to represent this so 24 years ago I had a man sculpt him telling him what I wanted.
I then had a mold make to pour slip to make green ware
and I learned how the use different medium to make
what you see with these three they each have a different parka color. which I hope
to have them look like hides as that's what Eskimo's use. Today I sell them for $15.00 each.
This is a real labor of love.

Learn from each other

Today is a post without pictures
Just some thoughts to dwell on today.

Learning is such a gift , why is it so hard for us
to listen to each other. one of my greatest gifts
is to have a Granddaughter who teaches me every day.
Her new approach to life verses mine is very refreshing.

my daughter teaches me about new tools I'm so stuck in
this is how I use to do it . She then intrduces me to a new
tool and I think why haven't I been using this all along.

Youth has so many lessons to teach.
Age has so much lessons to teach. Hopefully an open mind can learn it all.
have a great learning today
