Is Prayer Good Enough for the Pain of the World?

Comrade story- inside a Mastermind group

Meg is one of my Mastermind group members for the last seven years. She asked for my support a couple weeks back; here’s her story. Notice how this past life trauma was getting triggered by current events, and keeping her distracted from her soul mission. Meg allowed me to include an audio excerpt of the healing work I helped her with, a bit brief as we were at the end of our quarterly Mastermind check in 9-6-14. Phew, glad that was cleared – another light worker back on the trail!

I knew from previous experience with Denise that she is very intuitive and her work is deeply healing. This time I approached her for help because I felt deeply conflicted about my life’s work. In particular, I wondered whether I should be on the front lines, helping refugees in war-torn countries. By staying safe at home, wasn’t I just like the “good Germans” during World War II who did nothing to save the victims of Nazi persecution? In talking with Denise, I became aware of an inner panic – I had to get this right

I told Denise that this inner feeling was the same as I had felt a few weeks before when faced with a life-or-death situation. In that situation, I had wanted to be present to support my friend when she died (and her death was likely to be within the next 12-24 hours); at the same time I was hungry and wanted to go home to eat. Thank goodness, I was able to accept the panic, connect with the Divine, and made the choice to stay. My friend died with the hour, and I was at her side supporting her.

Fall Equinox ’14 Channel from ‘the group’

Greetings and blessings to your wonderful eyes and the curvy road that has brought you to this reading.

We are the group, an informal current nomenclature, for a group of guides and Ascended Masters that work with Denise; John the Baptist; Areeaana, three sisters of the Pleiades; and Octavia the High Priestess. Welcome to our energy; feel the support and happy holding of your journey that will transmit through these lines, through this black and white text, into your computers and other more modern devices. We delight in the many ways of transmission that connect us to you.

Welcome to Equinox 2014, and dare we say, don’t hold your breath, although it will be tempting to come to a complete standstill at this sacred time of balance. Yet it is breathtaking, this moment of time, this ¾ point of 2014. What a year, yes? We remember our year ahead reading, in January past that noted the need to release anything unneeded. Our metaphor then was boarding a space ship that had limited storage space. And this will be an ongoing reality as the parallel corridors of time squeeze upon each other.

The old way and the new way are the main contenders for your attention. It is the big squeeze time, and you must be slick and you must be skinny, metaphorically speaking. Flexible, well-oiled, lubricated and laughing, Read more

3 Light Worker Lies that Sacred Space Shatters

What’s your favorite kind of BS-shattering sacred space? Talking out loud? Writing in your journal? Speaking truth to a comrade? Meeting with your mastermind group? Thankfully, there are many options to keep you honest. Because if you’re left to your own devices – like your own mind, self-talk, emotional addictions and wound re-plays – lies are very common and will derail you at every turn.

For support to keep on the soul’s trail, check out the Mastermind group starting 9/24/14

Light workers – those healing and creative humans who have a deep seated urge to make a difference to the planet’s current intense transition process – have many noble ways to keep derailing and circling. Yes, I can speak from experience; these ways can be compelling and convincing. Luckily, in sacred space, they shatter like slate under a hammer, so you can be free to continue with your soul mission. That’s the key – to get to the truth, keep moving past the lies, and lend a hand to our starving planet.

Let’s bring 3 common light worker lies to the light, shall we? (More to come; I welcome yours in the comments below.)

1) Following my bliss won’t hurt / be terrifying / kick my ass

Joseph Campbell is mega quoted for the follow your bliss idea. But the rest of the paragraph is often left out, where he talks about all the scary shit that will follow that bliss stalking. Like letting go of how you think it will happen or turn out, and diving into the terrifying waves of the unknown. Surrender, in a word. I can’t ever seem to find that quote, there is such a conspiracy about this lie of feather bed bliss.

Many a light worker has derailed at the first sign of discomfort in their risk taking. They think that these struggles mean they’re on the wrong track. Well, bliss and soul missions can involve heh, blisters, and major pain. Usually you are reversing the inertia of generations, and you are going against the grain of society. So yes, cultivate ease-full living, but know that this creation will sometimes really hurt along the way. Eventually, it’s a “hurts so good” thing, as you get more use to facing discomforts like fear, and yet another vision facing reality’s sharp teeth.

2) I have no right to do this soul/creative work while there is so much pain in (world atrocity zone) Read more

Top 5 Ways You can Rock Fear

The next few weeks I’ll be talking about doubt, fear, and the anatomy of why change can be hard for Light Workers, especially when you’re trying to express your unique gifts and get paid. See end of article for a program to give you support for making it happen.

Last month’s Soul Savvy Open House was fun. It was great to connect with some of you. From your input, I was helped to remember than even with progress and growth, some things never fully exit the creative process of following our soul path.

Things like fear, doubt, self-questioning, derailing, avoidance of discomfort, and stuff like that. I guess rather than smooth sailing angels, we’re human. Maybe time for that “Not Dead/Angel Yet” bumper sticker? (Oh I can see a whole new Dead Angel Zombie movement. Let’s work out costumes!)

I mean, c’mon – I already did the Doubt Diva Teleseminar – shouldn’t that mean we’ve got the doubt healed and dispatched? Especially for me. Yeah. Well, no. And guess what? These launches used to scare the pants off me – still do, but not as bad.

For every daring move, fear and doubt will hop along too, just like the anxious hungry bunnies they are. Oh well. I ain’t feeding them carrots.

And I take heart from the fact that Jerry Garcia, in all his thousands of performances, reportedly never got over stage fright. Serious! It didn’t stop him though now, did it? (And I know some of you wish it had, but hey… just keep that to yourself now…Certainly no blog comments on the Grateful Dead, OK?)

Good news though – our soul work does not lie idle. And even if it’s fading or ailing, Read more

Time to Let the Soul’s Bud Unfold – Authentic Action Mastermind Group

ladderWow, it’s September again. That time of bountiful harvest, changing weather, and falling leaves. The time to wonder how much more you will create this year, before another year rolls on in.

Fall is a great time to check your progress with your soul work. Must be that going back to school energy. You think about the areas you really want to be making progress in, and what really matters.

And if you’ve been drifting, or forgetting (or wishing to forget) the mission, or listening to the fear too much, it’s time for authentic action.

It’s so easy to talk yourself out of taking right action

Even if you’re not a soul inspired creative type, who tends to be a Highly Sensitive Person, and/or/aka a Light Worker – our egos freak out over change. Never mind when you want to step into your true work or passion! If I’m on the brink of evolution, my ego can just freeze me up, where I go into high anxiety mode for no apparent reason, and I can’t think straight. Then there is the second guessing, and the self-doubt, which appears so sensible in its cautioning. Before you know it, that bright idea and sweet creation has died a quiet but resounding death. I’m stuck, and usually questioning it all.

Thank goddess for my mastermind group

After years of working together, we know each other’s “doubt diva dialogues”. We are familiar with the fears that come up, and even their roots. In our sacred circle of sanity, any statements comprised of BS instantly stink – loudly. One email can take me back to authentic action, and a phone meeting can shift a frozen frown to a compassionate chuckle in no time. The shift feels deep and as if it heals across time. Damn, my ancestors must love us! Never mind seven generations down the line…

Mastermind groups are not new, and Soul Savvy ones are a new breed

Napolean Hill, Think and Grow Rich author, is one of the dudes that popularized Mastermind type groups, but they go way back. It’s a simple concept of getting support, and hanging out with positive influences that might make you stretch, that might be a step ahead.

Still, each time I am faced with a new edge, I get scared. Read more

The “No Mercy ‘til Done” Syndrome


A quickening of your development is indicated here. Yet even when the growth process accelerates, you will have reason to halt along the way, to reconsider the old, to integrate the new. Take advantage of these halts. 

Book of Runes, by Ralph Blum
Rune: Thurisaz, Gateway – Place of Non-Action

So many times when working with clients, there is that resistance that comes up before a next step. Or after many steps. Things have been going along smoothly, even uber productively. And then, boof, a block appears. For some godforsaken reason (good word for this, it sure feels that way) – there’s a halt. Or a serious slow down. Maybe it’s just the exhale after the inhale – the pause between breaths.

Darn. Just when I was getting somewhere, you might think to yourself.

Pauses and rest stops –well, not so easy for most. That’s that there meditation, isn’t it, or that there mindfulness stuff, right? I don’t think that option is covered in the Puritan ethic. No, that tells you to keep working hard at all costs. It tells you idleness is the devil’s plaything – I mean c’mon! Get in gear pal!

In some families, unoccupied young ones were thought to be a big problem, and everyone would brainstorm until SOMETHING, anything, was found for them to do.

Maybe Space really is the final frontier… Read more

Report from the Field #1

It was a great first day of Soul Savvy Open House week. Here are lessons learned and thoughts to ponder, from Monday.


The first telephone group intention was to support each other to take on some decluttering, or other task that was not getting done, that needed to be. We named our three main areas, and then invited intuition and higher intelligence to bless our plans.

In all three cases, this inner intelligence asked for more meditation, for a return to mindfulness, or dancing. (!) At least, this was the initial redirection. Other insights that came of the hour together:

  • there is too much chaotic energy around my to do list
  • after a walking meditation, one area of decluttering happened spontaneously and easily
  • dancing led to yoga, led to relaxation, led to seeing the next tasks of the day with more spaciousness

I will be curious to see what tomorrow’s soul savvy work group will entail… I sense that this more mindful beginning may lead to more clarity and productivity from here.


In an individual session, I was struck by a common theme of the challenge in receiving. It’s an important area to be nimble in, with creating soul savvy, sustainable income. In a few cases I have seen lately, the body manifests the first waves of struggling to receive abundance. Why is it such a struggle? Partly, the new abundance that wants to land first need to clear any old beliefs that are in contradiction to the new ease.

Some of these beliefs may include: Read more

Soul Savvy Open House – for Robin

As I was planning next week’s Soul Savvy Open House, different themes called – block busting, truth telling about our Achilles heels that hold us back, tools to break free of our self imposed limits, and honest work that would name and tame the ways we shy away from our dreams, and from sharing our full light and gifts with the world.

In the midst of this I was at a workshop where the intuitive in me kept seeing the wounds that keep us anchored to our pasts. It seemed that most are blind to these past patterns, yet they are close to the light of awareness. With the right reflections shared with compassion, these bricks could be loosened, dropped. Oh, for this taste of freedom.

As I schemed about how to serve and how to focus the Soul Savvy Open House (SSOH) week, and yes struggled with my own doubt, while I waited to synch up with the Universe’s right timing, I heard the news about Robin Williams. The brilliant comic, actor, father and human chose to end his life at age 63.

If you wonder about freedom, and still struggle to live each day to the fullest, using your full gifts and being abundantly supported – you are not alone. This is no easy task. Our dreams, when neglected, do not die easily; glimmers of these dreams still shine, call and even haunt us until we die. Read more

Soul Muscle Strength – Stinky Resilience

SAM_4055Well, the long strange trip continues, does it not soul savvy friends? I think that it’s a safe guess that you are also still trucking on, to use some sixties lingo. (The dead do not read ezines; I would think they have better pastimes.) And these cycles keep repeating. If you’re doing even the minimal awareness practices, at each spiral’s curve you evolve more and more. And but of course, many of you are doing the mega awareness work and soul growth and muscle building. That means quantum leap frogging, at times. Good on ya!

Whew it’s a hairy road, and one I have near given up at a few curves, or certainly wished to crawl under the proverbial rock and only practice the sub-minimal soul awareness work. My best laid plans have sometimes upended me like a mean spirited horse. Yet who knows what those setbacks will mean in the end; I know they’ve taught me a ton. Humility, for sure, the importance of forgiveness; what gifts! And now they call me again to attempt brilliance with renewed vigor.

My grandfather was a fisherman, and I can remember a plaque on his wall – “Old fishermen never die, they just smell that way”. Well, there might be a plaque to fashion regarding soul work and soul dreams. Hmmm… Soul dreams never die, they just smell of surrender? (Your ideas welcome!)

To borrow another saying, it ain’t over ‘til the Fat Lady sings… Though she’s been humming at times, and perhaps hemming and hawing, that thar Fat Lady ain’t yet belting out any final blues tunes here at Soul Savvy headquarters. In fact, all of the threads of this colorful and soul-gifted tapestry are coming together in a whole new conglomeration. Universe conspiring right along too, that sneaky smirking wench…


So I’ve got ideas, and – I’d like to hear from you too. Read more

Intuition Revolution #9 – Seeing Beneath the Surface

SAM_4029Cycles repeat, say the astrologers, seers and the yogis. The recent Mindfulness and Yoga craze is not the first round. And if we remember back to the early part of the last century, séances were hot. So, hello and welcome, round # one thousand and one of the Intuition Revolution.

Intuition is defined by Webster’s dictionary as “a natural ability of power that makes it possible to know something without any proof or evidence: a feeling that guides a person to act a certain way without fully understanding why.” I love that word natural in there. That feels relevant to the current times and that sense of reclaiming or revaluing intuition’s powerful place in life.

See, it’s a helpful thing to have some intuition when you’re flying by the seat of your pants, as often is the case, in these blessing and curse times.

And how does intuition help? Read more
