Oh, there are SO many reasons, but it mostly comes down to the barrage of bullshit from That Man, the plethora of Russian bots, the lack of terminating abusive accounts (while suspending non-abusive ones for ridiculous reasons), and just the overall crap.
Twitter used to be fun, but it has become dark, angry, stressful, and, as so many empaths are finding, too much to handle. Checking in causes some to turn and run after just a few tweets in their feed.
So I'm choosing to focus on Instagram. Less stress, it's harder to spread the anger and fear (yes, you can repost, but most don't as a rule), and while I love tweeting thoughts as the day goes on, my stress level can't take the dark cloud anymore. Needing to have a picture to post when you want to say something automatically causes you to pause while taking a picture, and by the time you're done, you may no longer need/want to say what you'd planned. No dark cloud there!
I hope to see you there! I'm heartspeacehealing. :)

PS: I'm 3 followers short of 300, and the 300th gets a free 30-minute distance energy healing session!!
There's a lot going on this week! Right now it's the dark moon - mistakenly termed the new moon by almost every calendar out there, and then tomorrow night we should see the first sliver of a crescent moon, ushering in the new moon phase.
Add the equinox to that on Friday, and moving from Virgo to Libra...no wonder we're all spinning like tops!
One of my favorite sites it The Power Path, and I avidly read their monthly forecasts on the first, and then throughout the month. This is what Lena has to say about the Equinox:
"September 22: The Equinox is on Friday, September 22 at 2:02 PM Mountain Daylight Time. This is a marker for change. The death of one season and the birth of another. We always recommend honoring any change of season through a ritual or ceremony of some kind. Bring in all the elements of fire, water, earth and air to support you. This equinox is not necessarily a communal time but it can be. If you are with community it would also be good to take a little time alone to do a personal prayer or practice."
So many of us love fall, but do we honor the change? I know I don't. I have an inkling of what I will do to honor it this year, and sending healing light to the planet will definitely be part of it.
What do you plan on doing?

In my bios across social media, I state that I live with essential tremor (or on the shorter bios, just have #essentialtremor), but I don't think many people really know what that is, or what it looks like. Tremors come in many shapes and forms, including Parkinson's, but the type I have affects my hands and arms - and in extreme stress, my head and voice. Katharine Hepburn had essential tremor, though almost all reports mislabeled it Parkinson's.
I've been sick with bronchitis the past two weeks, and as always, medications mess with my tremors. Even ones that are for tremors!! I had hoped to go into work today, not only to give the poor man who is covering my days a break, but because bills don't stop for illness. ;)
Instead, this is how my day is going, and will until my meds are gone in another week or two. And there's no guarantee that they will calm back down after the meds are gone, either. Last time it took months.
On the cool side, when I send someone energy (and especially in person), sometimes it feels like an internal energetic massage, and from what I hear, feels really good!
So as I'm waiting for things to get better, I've plenty of time to send healing light, so please, feel free to ask for a session and I'll get in touch with you asap! Remember, they're only $1.00 a minute!!
I can't use my cell phone when my hands are like this, so I'll check my email on the desktop as the day goes on. :) Thank you in advance for allowing me to be of service! You've made my day!!

I came across a retweet this morning of a comment concerning "one-size-fits-all healers", and it struck a cord deep within. So much of what you read online is about finding your niche, and I've attempted to do just that many times, but not with a whole lot of luck. I always end up wanting to help everyone feel better, no matter the ailment or emotional issue. Basically a one-size-fits-all healer. Hmmm.
It's difficult to narrow it all down to one aspect of helping people, but in all reality, doing so will, most likely, make it possible to help more people than I currently am. Many more people. And that's really all I want to do in life.
There's the pain aspect. I can help alleviate pain. Much quicker in person, naturally, but it does amazing work as a distance session, too. Then there's the emotional work; so many have had emotions released, allowing them to move forward and get past things that had kept them stuck in place. And the all-over "I don't really know what I need, I just need something" session...the results from those are sometimes hysterically funny! :)
So how does one take all that goodness and narrow it down to something smaller?? One just does, I guess. I think out of everything I do, pain relief is the most common issue that I help with. Little pains like a headache or a stomach ache, to big pain like post-surgery healing. And everything in between. So from now on I shall make myself known as an alternative pain-relief healer and see where that takes me. :)

Oh, what a week I've had! I don't usually like to blog on Fridays, but there hasn't been time until now to tell you what's been going on.
Monday a woman brought a wounded crow with her to her therapy session next to my work, and when she went in, she left it in a box on the porch. Our reader for the day, Christina Florence, saw the bird and asked if we knew it was there. She and my coworker Mark went out to look at it, and when I went outside, he said it had died. I love crows and ravens, and have never seen one up close, so I had to go look anyway. It wasn't dead, it was alive!
Mark carried the box into the shop, we gave it water that had a pastille of Rescue Remedy in it, and he moved her to a larger box, too. He discovered that it had an injury to its chest and was breathing with difficulty. The woman, who, come to find out, is a customer of ours named Stephanie, walked in, saying she knew the missing bird meant we had taken her in, and she was on her way to deliver it to the Wildlife Rescue center on Candelaria. As the bird was being carried to the door, Mark asked if I wanted to "do my magic", which I'd been jonesin' to do, and put the box on the counter.
*we were so invested in the experience that none of us thought to take a picture.
The bird was calm through all of this, and I wasn't worried as I put my left hand on her chest and the other on her back. Very quickly she began leaning into my hand, and after a few minutes, she turned her head, tucked it up against my hand and her "shoulder" (for lack of a better description)...and FELL ASLEEP! In my hands! I asked the others how to tell if a bird is asleep, because I wanted to be sure that what I thought was happening really was happening, and they verified that she was sleeping. I was floored. And the moment she fell asleep, the heat in my right hand, which I usually don't feel, intensified exponentially: healing always seems to do its best work when the recipient is sleeping. :)
My guy and I drove down to the center Wednesday morning to check up on the bird, but sadly she had died the night before. I was, and still am, crushed. But, as everyone keeps telling me, I gave her some moments of peace in the midst of all her pain, so there's that to hold on to.
Then....Wednesday night it was discovered that what all the neighbors thought was someone's squeaky swamp cooler belt was actually a trapped woodchuck! It was stuck in a 4" wide space between our neighbor's shed and our cinder-block wall. It had been there for about a week, sad to say. I'd gone outside Monday morning and the noise started again, and I discovered it was his shed, not a cooler, but thought it was a ventilation fan or something, and didn't see him to tell him til Wednesday night. After the discovery of the animal, one of our dogs must have knocked a loose brick off the wall and it trapped it even more. My guy and another neighbor used long clamps to lift the brick, but they couldn't move the other items and we had to leave it there, unsure if it would make it through another night.
When we came inside, I sent it light for over half and hour (and boy, it sucked that energy in!), hoping that it would help. In the morning it was chirping away as we tried to move the rest of the items, but it needed to be done from the neighbor's yard. When he returned home, he and his wife pulled out some of the things, then he physically lifted a large topstone brick that was stuck about 4' down. He used one hand. Mechanic's strength. ;) Finally all obstacles were removed, but the critter still wouldn't move, but it kept looking at us and chirping away.
My guy, the incredibly inventive man that he is, made a catch-pole like Animal Control uses and the neighbor managed, after 4 tries and one OOPS when it feel back down, to pull the critter up and dropped it into a humane cage that he had.
We drove it down to the exact same rescue center (that neither of us had known existed til Monday) and they said no one had ever brought one in before! The workers all came into the reception area to see what was making that noise - many thought it was a bird - and one wanted to take pictures. They weren't sure if they took in woodchucks and attempted to call others to find out, and if not, to where it should be taken. We had to leave it there without any answers, but I can call in a couple days to find out where it is and how it is doing. Hopefully it will be relocated to somewhere lovely!
And that, my dears, has been my week! Animal Planet live and energy healer to the wildlife. #relishlife

PS: every time I play that video, Dog 1 runs out the back door, straight for that corner of the yard. ;)
When I'm doing distance sessions, a lot of the focus is on emotions and stuck energies. Lately I've been doing more in-person mini-sessions, and the name of that game seems to be pain relief!
I've helped stop pain from TMJ, a hurt shoulder, and food poisoning nausea. The sessions were fairly quick, and the results were almost immediate.
Starting this Friday, I will be doing healing sessions at the Crystal Dove in Albuquerque from 10-5 every Friday! Stop on in and let me help! Sessions are still $1.00 a minute, and you can call the shop (505-842-5265) to set up an appt, or call me at 505-633-6595. Walk-ins are always welcome, too.
I'll see you there!

Self-care is the buzzword of the year, it seems, and there are a multitude of websites with tips on how to go about it, but not a lot mention energetic healing. I think that in many ways we are so conditioned to wanting results right now, that something as subtle as energy work can get pushed to the side in favor of a calming bath or a soothing song...or chocolate. ;)
Energy work can clear blocks and chakras, boost healing, bring about some relief from stress and anxiety, help with headaches, give you an oasis of calm in a busy day...there are so many applications for it that I couldn't begin to list them!
The lovely thing about this type of healing is that since it can be so subtle, the results are gentle...yet very powerful at the same time. You may not even realize til a month or so later that a change has taken place, and yet it definitely has in its quiet way. On the other hand, many notice an immediate shift...each session is completely different and every person inwardly works with the healing energy differently.
A one-time session can do a lot of work for you, but when it comes to self-care, which should, by all rights, be an on-going routine for all of us, more than one session can really boost your inner healing. It can be once a week, bi-weekly, monthly...whatever feels best for you.
To help get you started, I'm offering a limited-time package of three 30-minute distance sessions for almost 1/2 off the price of three separate sessions: $50. This price is good until midnight MST, March 31st. **since I ran this special on Wordpress and not here, today is 4/5/2017, and I will run that same package until midnight MST on April 15th.
Let's get that boost going! Self-care FTW!!!

Recently I did a healing session for Jen, and she wrote this guest post about the experience. :)
Hi, my name is Jenni & I am a mess. Ok, but seriously this is true. If it isn’t one thing it is
another, mainly it’s depression and anxiety though. I have moments where I don’t know which direction to turn because of my anxiety, or if I can even make myself go to the bathroom due to depression.
I am a believer in light healing. Yep, I believe your mind is a powerful thing and a place where you can do amazing things. To send energy to another soul to heal their mind is a crazy but amazing thought. After hearing about this, and not wanting to go on to a prescription medication I thought I would give this a try.
I have depression all year long but seasonally it gets much worse. I hate being trapped inside and I dislike that there is so much cold and no sun for most of the season. Green has to be one of my favorite colors because as soon as there is a little life in the trees it goes down significantly. I ended up posting on social media about being depressed and this is when Pip reached out to me. I was grateful that she did, sometimes I get a little too much in my head. She told me about her sessions and I said what the heck why not.
The experience I had with light healing is a good one. The day we scheduled to do it probably was one of my worse days at the time. I was just stuck inside my head and I wasn’t feeling anything. I didn’t want to be at my job, I was seriously thinking about quitting and I was trying to figure out what would be my next steps. Then she messaged me and reminded me it was my appointment time. I was like whatever. I am at work trying not to just walk out and quit. I had told her to go through with it, and she did. At first I didn’t notice anything, I was still grumpy ol’ me…then it was like a switch… not as subtle as a flip one more like a dimmer switch being turned up, I felt like smiling a little more and more. That day was one of my best sales days, as well as the next few days. I was happily greeting customers and glad to be at work.
Then depression found it’s way back to my brain. I think in order for this to continue to work, I would need to do this more frequently at least once a week, to bi-weekly. Yes, I am saying that I loved the feeling but like any light it fades, it’s not a permanent solution, so like any appointments follow up appointments are needed to maintain the happiness.
My last two cents, Try it… if you are struggling, doesn’t matter what it is.. could be a bad
toothache, could be mental or physical, could be emotional or grieving. Book a session or see if you can do a session pack at the time*. I think that follow up is key to success!

*Yes, we can set up a package deal if you're interested. :)

Today I thought I’d tie energy healing and breast cancer together. The work I do releases trapped, blocked, and stuck emotions, sometimes bringing them to the surface so they can be dealt with once and for all, and sometimes removing them in such a way that you don’t have to deal with them: I never know how it will work for each person as the work is actually being done by the person’s soul and “upstairs” – I’m simply the happy conduit. But it always does something. It may not always be immediately obvious, and other times it’s so obvious that you’re glad you were home when you received the light because that burst of crying as the emotions were released would have been really embarrassing at work.
Breast cancer comes about for many, many reasons, and on an emotional level it can be caused by feeling a lack of nurturing; that no one takes care of you, you do all the caring. It can also be grief, locked up and never let out. It can be because you lost your mother, or that your mother was one of those who never learned how to be nurturing and so your life was pretty much about taking care of yourself, or sometimes, taking care of her*. Regardless the reason, the work I do can help.
No, I’m not saying I can cure breast cancer – I would never promise something like that, ever – but it can help to release the stored grief and loneliness and sadness that can lead to the cancer. It’s a completely non-invasive method of alternative healing that can have far-reaching benefits with no medicine involved.
*Breast cancer seems to be tied to maternal rather than paternal issues.

Back in August I tweeted the following :
I honestly don't know what to say anymore about the work I do. I help you heal. You'll feel better. I can do it from afar. The end. :)
And then my friend Donna, of Donna Watkins, retweeted it, with this comment.
My friend. She does. You will. She can. The end.
