I missed you all so! Where have I been all these weeks? I've begun a magical mystery tour of health and wellness!
Right before my last post, I started an amazing year long program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. This step has been life changing. Literally. When I graduate I will be a Certified Health Coach. Blending nutrition with the other healing modalities I use, I hope to create a path to health and wellness uniquely designed for each person.
My intention is to share my journey this year. The first few weeks were life changing and life re-arranging. As I played more with nutrition, exploring new foods, recipes and diets. It was fun!
So far, my discoveries have been about cleaning out the old. I spent weeks going through cabinets. I discovered that while I tried to prepare wholesome, organic meals for my family, really we ate junk! UGH! What a realization! We ate organic, whole foods, but somehow some junk had crept in. I had to toss the stuff. What a relief. Plus, my whole family went gluten-free. It's been miraculous. I'm learning that we are all individuals, each with unique bio-individual needs. One diet for all doesn't work. That doesn't mean I'm cooking different meals for each person in my family. I'm blending my families needs into each meal. But the wheat/gluten had to go, for us all. And we're all better for it. Our digestion is better. And when wheat creeps in from a cookie eaten on the run. The next day there is trouble.
I'll be back more frequently, sharing morsels of delicious discoveries. Thanks for walking this path with me. Sending you all hugs and love.
ps: I have a yummy treat for you to try: Mid-Morning -SuperSmoothie!
In a blender:
1/3 of a cucumber in chunks
1/2 cup frozen organic blueberries
5 frozen organic strawberries
1/3 cup of wolfberries (also called Goji berries)
1 heaping tbs raw cacao power
1 heaping tbs nut butter (I use almond and it's so delicious!)
herbal sun tea of hibiscus flower to liquify (I pour to the top of ingredients)
add the following superfoods if you wish ( I use just a pinch of each):
super blue-green algae
powdered wheat grass
Blend, Enjoy and Cheers!
until next time, I'll be keeping the light on....

Are you seeing signs of Spring where you are in the world? Or are you seeing the signs of fall? Here, I'm waiting patiently for these blossoms to appear. Okay maybe not so patiently. Don't get me wrong, I love snow. But I'm ready for the turn of the wheel.
I've exciting news. In a few months, I'll be a Certified Holistic Health Counselor. This past Monday I began my course at IIN, the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. When I began my search of 'what's an old Massage Therapist to do, when she can't massage anymore?' my life became a lot of trial and error. I thank you all for putting up with me as I was trying to figure it all out.
When I discovered IIN in January, I felt a huge lightbulb go off! In fact every cell in my body became calm - instead of the agitation that I had been feeling for so long. It was like living with an itch you can't scratch. But when I spoke with Juliet in admissions at IIN, I felt like I was home, talking with a family member, sharing my story and seeing if this was my next step.
Thank you and hugs to all the amazing teachers I've had along the way, Leonie, Pixie, Andrea, Athena, and all my sweet sisters in the groups I attended. Everyone held a light for me to see my path. All of you gentle souls who visit here held a light for me too. For all of you I'm so grateful.
As I walk on this new path, a path for the next 50 years of my life :) I'll share some of the journey. And when I'm ready to launch my new business, I hope you'll throw confetti in the air and celebrate with me.
If you have ever considered IIN or becoming a Certified Holistic Health Counselor let me know. IIN has given me an opportunity to share this amazing course with others. I have scholarships available if you are interested. This could be the next step on your journey too!
Here's to Health, Wellness and Prosperity for all!
Until next time, I'll be keeping the light on......

Congratulations to Trish!!
I'm so happy to announce that Trish of Soup Soul Sister is the winner! Wow! She answered right a way and had the correct answer! The mystery strand was a spider's web with some droplets of mist clinging to it.
Trish, I'll connect with you through email so we can set up your long-distance Reiki appointment.
Look for more exciting posts in the coming weeks. This fall and winter have been a growth spurt for me.
Sending all of you so much love and blessings....and
until next time, I'll be leaving the **light** on!

I've been unplugged for a few weeks dealing with a crummy cold/flu bug. But last week, the fog drew me out of the house...and I captured the photo above. Can you guess what it is? Leave me a comment telling me what you think it is. (and sorry I've had to add a few steps in order to leave a comment, due to spam) The first person that guesses correctly will receive a free 30 minute healing session with me.
Ready, set, go!
