My heart breaks when I see the grocery stores empty. It hits home that so many people are hoarding. People who probably don’t need all they’ve hoarded, yet there are people who need some of it badly. Think of the people who are immune compromised, old, sick, newborn babies…with no cleaning supplies, what is life like?

What brought us here? Our insatiable need to kill every living thing. For some, to eat every living thing. Greed, narcissism….Our culture is based on consumption. It’s in our faces every day. We worship people like the Kardashians, sports heroes, the rich and famous, yet the real heroes, teachers, health care workers, social workers, go without even a thank you.

We are consuming everything on the planet. Sucking out Her insides, polluting, destroying. Mass extinction of species, on a daily basis. These are our lessons in this crisis. Will we get it?

For years I’ve felt like I don’t belong here. I cannot understand why things are the way they are. Do they not see that all the boundaries we have established are artificial? There are no countries. There are no religions. All roads lead to the same place. Just because one person’s road is decorated differently than another’s doesn’t mean that it’s wrong.

Please, humanity, wake up before it’s too late. The Planet will survive. I think she’s been demonstrating that lately – pollution levels down without humanity running around destroying Her. Wildlife flourishing in the radiation of Chernobyl. She can, and will, survive us, but will we, as a species survive?

WE MUST CHANGE. And now. This is a slap on the head from the Universe. Next time, we may receive the club over the head, and it will be far worse.


Be Careful What You Ask For

Many years ago, one of my dear friends wanted to get married. As she was Wiccan, she did a spell to attract her great love, complete with spider webs and candles. I never asked her if she danced naked in the moonlight….

She made a list of all her requirements, the most important being, “a spiritual man”. Well, he turned up soon after. The universe in it’s perfect sense of humor sent her a “spiritual man”, a die-hard Hare Krishna, complete with Dhoti and tilak. It was the one thing she hadn’t considered and that’s what she got. The happy ending to the story is that they are still married and quite happy, 20 something years later, despite their spiritual diversity. They are happily married because of their tolerance for their spiritual diversity…..

At that time, I decided to try the same thing as I was looking for a forever love. So I did the rituals, wrote down my requirements and waited. He appeared not too soon afterwards, everything I asked for except for one thing: he was many years younger than I was. I’d never thought of that! I could never quite get my head around that, so he went, and I was broken- hearted, and there were many lessons afterwards that made me reconsider my thoughts on the matter. But that’s another story.

I read for a client once who wanted a man in her life. She had a list too. Since she was a recovered alcoholic, she wanted a man who absolutely did not drink and because her grandchildren meant so much to her, he must also have and love children. My thoughts about the matter were that in her manifestations she’d eliminated the man who might not care enough about drinking to stop having that beer with the guys and the man who may not have had an opportunity to have children, but could fall completely in love with her grandchildren. How limiting!

That’s how the universe works. There’s a lesson in everything for us. So my advice to you is, be careful what you wish for. I’ve learned to keep it really broad, like, “for my highest good” and for the “perfect situation”. Then “They” can’t play any more tricks on me!

Animal Soul Mates?

This past spring I was thinking about how nice it would be to have a dog again. I hadn’t had one in 3 years, because I was so brokenhearted loosing the last one, a sweet little female Chihuahua. So I started looking for a dog, not too seriously.

I came across a little Yorkie in my neighborhood Facebook group. She was free, complete with all her accouterments. I thought, when I read the ad, that would be perfect. So I met her, and didn’t feel compelled to adopt her, even though she was pretty cute.

A few weeks later, my roommate texted me that she and her boyfriend walked by Petsmart and saw that they were having a dog adoption and there were some dang cute dogs in their pen. She sent me a photo. My eyes immediately went to this little beige Chihuahua who called out to me. So I went to the adoption, not sure I really was going to get a dog, I was just going to look…..

Well, I went, and she was still there, mixed in amongst 6 or 7 other dogs. I asked the lady if I could hold her, and she put her in my arms. It was love at first sight for both of us. It was particularly amazing to me weeks later, because she really is terrified of people. But the amazing thing was she immediately cuddled up to me and I could tell she loved me too.

So I was thinking on our morning walk today how well she fit into my life. How she is so eager to please me, and so well behaved. She didn’t know how to walk on a leash. In fact, I don’t think she was ever outside, judging by her reaction when I first took her out.

She plopped herself down on the driveway and just looked around, like what was this? Then she refused to walk at all on her leash. The next day I texted my friend Shannon, and asked if we could all go to the park together (he has two little dogs). My thinking was she would see his dogs walking on the leash and follow. It worked like a charm!

Well, anyway, I wonder if it’s possible that we could have dog soul mates? If we can, then Daphne is truly mine!

Anyone else have similar experiences?

Dog Dreams

Many, many years ago, when I got married, my then husband bought me a 7 week old Toy Poodle as a wedding gift.  Little did I know that Sebastian, as I named him, would be the start of a life long career for me in the pet industry.  I became a breeder, exhibitor, groomer, trainer, and seller and champion of fine dog food food.  I only recently retired.

Sebastian lived for 14 years.  My heart broke when I had to put him to sleep.  There were many memorable Poodles for me over the years — Spicey, Dodie, Trek, Buddy, and more.

Over the years, Spicey and Sebastian have come to me regularly in dreams.  I always wake up feeling so blessed to have been able to spend time with them.  Usually they are running around, playing, and I’m worrying about them getting out and getting lost, just like I did when they were alive.

Last night I dreamed about another dog i loved, a large white mixed breed.  I’ve never dreamed about her before. Her name was Ubee, and she probably passed away in the 90s.  She stayed with my ex-husband after the divorce, so I never really saw her again.  She was a very beautiful, kind and loving dog.

In my dream, she was sitting next to my bed, and was somewhat transparent.  I exclaimed, “Ubee!” and went to pet her but she walked off and then disappeared.

I have heard it said that these visits are real.  I really don’t know; my feeling is that they are.  It is so nice to know that they live on, just in another form.

Before and After a Reiki Session

This blog is for Reiki practitioners. It will detail what you should do before and after administering a Reiki Session.

BEFORE: Begin by saging the room. You can also use an energy bell and walk around the room sounding the bell. Place the Power Symbol in each of the four corners of the room, by drawing with your finger or you mind. Draw the rest of the symbols over your Reiki table. Draw the Power Symbol over your body and in the palms of your hands. Fold your hands in Gassho position and ground yourself, and place protection around you with white light, prayer or any other method you find reliable. Move your folded hands to cover your Third Eye and ask your guides and angels as well as your client’s to guide you where you need to go. You are ready to begin.

AFTER: When you are done, wash your hands. This is not only sanitary, but the water will break the connection. Clean your crystals and other equipment and sage the area.

The best method for psychic protection is of course to keep your own vibration high with proper diet, lots of water, regular spiritual practice and walking your talk. Remember to always disconnect yourself from your clients. Don’t take on their issues.

Happy Healing!

Just Because You Are A Reiki Master….

…doesn’t mean you don’t get sick.

I recently read a blog about people thinking that because you are a Reiki Master it doesn’t mean you are immune to illness and life threatening situations. This is very true. We get sick, we die, just like everybody else.

It’s putting an awful lot on Reiki to think that it can cure everything. It can’t. Somethings are just beyond Reiki. Reiki can’t keep a person from dying, but it can make the passing easier. I’ve worked with many people at end of life and found that Reiki makes it a less stressful, less painful passing. But the end result was the same.

I recently experienced a life threatening illness. This even though I am a Reiki Master. What I can say is that all the people in my life sending Reiki kept me calm and in less pain than I should have been experiencing. And I am recovering, with the help of Reiki.

I have to admit I’m a bit like the “shoemaker’s kids”. They have the worst shoes on the block, because their dad is spending all his time making shoes for other people. So too it is for us healers….we are usually the last on the list to receive healing.

Thank you for all the well wishes, and of course for the Reiki.

Much Love, Georgia


I’ve done a lot of work on dream and metaphysical symbolism in the course of my work. I’ve come to the conclusion that you may want to throw out your dream dictionaries, or at least be open to a greater interpretation of symbolism.

I, for example, dream about dogs all the time. Dogs are symbolic of loyalty, faithfulness and family. Looking back over my dreams, I don’t think they had any such message. I worked for many years as a dog breeder, groomer and trainer so often I was dreaming about my profession. If a dog came to me in a dream needing grooming, it reflected my day, rather than being a message about loyalty. Sometimes I would dream that I had forgotten to feed my dogs, and suddenly remembered. This indicated to me that I had some concerns about my work.

Another option I would add is that if you dream about a certain animal, look to a book or Google “Totem Animals”, or “Spirit Animals”. Ted Andrews authorized two excellent books on this topic. When an animal comes to you in a dream, it has a lesson for you to learn. Spirit Animals are great teachers and come to usher us to the next level of our spiritual development.

So expand your knowledge of symbolism and spirit animals. Go beyond the traditional dream dictionaries or symbol books. Each symbols must be taken in the context of the person who is encountering it. Each symbol must be taken in the context of the greater spiritual meaning.

Learn from your dreams and symbolic encounters to help you reach a greater level of spiritual consciousness.
