A Phone Call Home

Sunday, June 15th, 2014

Friends,
Today I bring you a blog post written by my dearest friend and husband, Pete.
-Shawna

When we were young, we played and got into mischief, and our parents, our
mothers and fathers, were patient with us and guided us. Sometimes their
guidance was soft and gentle and sometimes it was swift and firm. All their
actions were done with Love.

As were grew older, our parents still loved us, but we out of the house and
on our own. The need for advice and comfort never leaves us. Our mothers
and fathers are still there watching from afar and always available. When
we do phone them up for help and advice, we usually do a lot of talking at
first. And then there comes a time in the conversation when we want the
advice – and we can only get, and we can only receive the advice we are
seeking when we are listening.

father's day

We can’t absorb the information fully if we are distracted, watching
television or cooking or involved with any other activity. In those really
intense and sometimes emotional discussions, we unconsciously remove
distractions around us. We even search out a quiet room in the house,
sometimes the bathroom (a door with a lock!). We don’t want to miss anything
being said on the other end of the line.

As children of God, and children of the Universe, our God, our Mother, our
Father, watch over us all the time. In times of crisis, we pray to God for
guidance and direction. God, who loves us more than all else, is always
with us and guiding us. Just like a phone call to our parents, in order to
fully absorb and hear the inspiration from God, we need to block out and
remove ourselves from distractions. We need to listen. The more
distractions we can block out, the better we can listen. The better we can
listen to our Mother and our Father, the happier we will be, and the more
peace we will have.

So set aside time to listen – without distractions. Sit quietly 10 minutes
a day. Make that spiritual phone call Home to our Mother/Father God. Enjoy
the inspiration and advice, love and peace that flows to you from the other
end of the line.

Thank you!

Meet Your Psychic

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

I am very excited to share my new video with you. It is my hope that this video will give clients a chance to peak into the experience of having a session with me. I hope it portrays the space and atmosphere they can expect in a intuitive reading or spiritual healing.

A nice guy named Justin (with Smart Shoot) came to my office to shoot the footage. He asked me to invite some clients as well and with only a 1 day notice. I must say a very big thank you to those who so generously shared their time. A big thank you to Melissa – a client, yoga instructor and meditation teacher in Encinitas. A big hug on the video goes to Cindy who is a client from the San Diego area. Special thanks to Martha has been a client from Sedona, AZ and now lives locally. Martha and I have also been in a very special spiritual circle for 4 years now. Love to my husband Peter who posed for the healing with laying on of stones. It is an Indian ritual using the added healing advantage of precious and semi precious gems. Pete has been a client forever as well as my husband and dearest friend.

We had a great time making this short video and I believe it gives insight into what a personal session with me is like. I hope you enjoy watching it.

Thank You for Making Me a Mom

Sunday, May 11th, 2014

I have three very special people to thank for making me a Mom. They are my children.

I am so grateful that these souls were willing to take a chance on me as their mom and mentor through this life. These souls must have known me before, in other lifetimes. For even before conception, I had visions of them, and we spoke often. It seemed they even knew my weaknesses and strengths. Still, they entrusted me in this lifetime to nurture and care for them body, mind and spirit. I would be their guide though emotional and spiritual development. They would surrender a bit to my judgment throughout their life.

Mother's Day

The thing is I had no idea how very much they would teach me. They taught me to give beyond myself. They taught me to love another with a depth I never knew existed. I learned patience, and trust, and wisdom. They often showed me a more enlighten way to view something. They have really been my mentors. Their love encouraged me when I wanted to cry or quit. That must be how God loves us.

My children have raised me with a wisdom and grace beyond their Earthly years, and I am grateful.

I have also been blessed with a mother who is my dearest friend and confidant. We have shared so many lives together that we have a most special bond. My mother-in-law, a wise and funny woman, is a special mom to me as well. She taught me things I needed to know about home and family. Best of all, she raised the wonderful man that I love.

Thank you, kids. And thank you, moms. You have blessed and enriched my life in more ways than I can ever comprehend.

I love you.

On Earth Day

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

On Earth Day…

I have a delightful dream. The sky is robin’s egg blue and clear as far as the eye can see. The birds are singing the sun is shining . The breeze is ever so soft and warm.

In the dream, we are out for a family walk. It’s Thursday evening, and we are walking to the farmers market in the center of town. I love Thursday nights. There is always live music, fresh organic produce, and vendors selling delicious food. Call me silly but I can feel the difference in the foods I pick up at my neighborhood farmers market.

As I look around, I see the world has changed. There are more people walking and biking around than when we first moved in. Most kids walk to school. They get extra credit on volunteer hours because they volunteer to walk and reduce our traffic and pollution.

Sunflower

An insightful project was begun many years ago. Kindergarteners began the growing of little sapling trees and these were tended to with love and studied as part of science throughout the grade school years. Each child keeps his own sapling alive from year to year throughout elementary school. Part of graduation from 5th grade is to give back to your community. As the final class project they plant the trees they have raised. Planting them along the path of the stream through town eliminates any extra water usage. In the Fall, families have the option to purchase a tree cutting permit. Select trees will be tagged for thinning, and families have an option to cut down their own Christmas tree. All the money raised from trees goes back to our schools.

Composting is now part of the science program at schools. Lot of lunch garbage is being recycled into dirt and fertilizer.

Not everyone embraced the first neighbor to have their own beehive. More and more beekeepers cropped up among us, and now we are known for our “Honey of the Hills.”

Every home has solar and collection for rain water. Many yards are partially devoted to growing produce. My neighbor raises chickens. At first, I thought they would be noisy and messy. The cooing and clucking blends into all the other sounds of the neighborhood. Kids giggling, dogs barking, and the general buzz of the sounds of nature.

We have become known as the community with the lowest carbon footprint in the nation. We take pride in our community and our Green way of life. It wasn’t without effort and intention that this community became what it was, but you might say we came about organically!

This dream sounds like a little utopia, but then dreams are like that, aren’t they? I believe you have to have a dream before it can come true. My dream is neighbors taking care of neighbors and everyone taking care of the earth.

Happy St. Patty’s Day

leprechaun
Happy Saint Paddy’s to Ye!

We are surrounded by the little people. Fairies, nymphs, leprechauns and the like. Is it just someone’s imagination or do these little sprites of nature really exist among us?

Everything on earth is alive with an unobserved energy. I call it “God” or “Spirit.” Someone more scientific might call it “Quarks” or “Quantum Physics.” The fact remains that animate or inanimate objects from the smallest to the largest pulse with energy. Living among us is an active and lively unseen energy. Is it such a stretch then to imagine that there are other levels of existence which most of us cannot observe? Pulses we cannot see with the average human eye?

As we know, our “spirit world” of people exists whether they have a body or not. So do the spirits of every living thing. They have life regardless of whether we are gifted with the sight to see them.

feeling energy
These lovely “little fairies” and “gnomes” are still with us today. They are depicted much as they have been since early times. We have sketches, new and old, stories, dolls and statues. All of which were created by our imaginations. And still, they survive era after era because on some level, we know them to be true. They are seen by those gifted with a sixth sense of sight and depicted all over the world in various cultures and societies.

Just for fun imagine what a water spirit, or sprite, might look like. A fire spirit or that of a tree. The world is very much alive and full of mischief. Look beyond your five senses. What do you imagine? Soften your vision and look with your third eye. What do you see? The aura of another life perhaps?

Angels take wing in our presence every moment. Although many are not aware of this, it still remains true. What would be the harm if we all allow ourselves to believe in a little blarney?

Letter to God

Friday, February 28th, 2014

I am enjoying all the blog posts my dear friend, Elena Vega, is writing. If you have done a Dream Board, you might like reading her Letter to God. I think it might be beneficial to some of you. -Shawna

Letter to God

I mentioned how I met my boyfriend. No, I didn’t join Match.com or go to a bar every night. It was very simple. I focused my thoughts and feelings on having a boyfriend. We’ve been together now for almost a year.

Another manifestation, I was being evicted from my apartment. I focused my thoughts and feelings on an affordable place to live, and I found a beautiful home well within my price range. Now, I want to manifest other things.

I want a lot of things. We all do, and for me, there’s nothing wrong with wanting. I know how to manifest my desires. I’ve done it before, and I can do it again. That’s why I’m going to work on my vibration.

I’m going to tell a different story in a thank you letter to God. I’m going to tell the story as if everything I want has already manifested. I’m going to do this everyday, several times a day. It’s the same thing as daily affirmations or making a vision/ dream board. It’s like a marathon. You don’t just get up and run 22 miles. You have to train for it. By telling this new story, I am warming up to running my marathon and getting my medal. The more I practice my story, the easier it will be to tell.

sunset walk

Dear God,
I am so deeply thankful for everything that has happened in my life. I have a handsome man next to me who loves me and adores me, and I love and adore him. I love how everyone – our friends, our family, our kids- they see our love, and they benefit from seeing us together. Our kids are happy, healthy, and smart. They go to very good schools, and their teachers care about their education and general well-being. The kids have fun when we get together with our friends for BBQs and sports games. I love our home. It’s warm and comfortable and close to the beach. There’s a lot of light in the kitchen. We have great neighbors who take care of us, and vice versa. I go walking with one of our neighbors, but I don’t need to exercise. I’ve lost 20 pounds since the baby, eating anything I want. I look and feel amazing. I like being able to park my Lexus on the street and not worry. My career is booming. We have a nice savings that affords us a lot. We’re going on a Disney cruise with the kids this year instead of Hawaii, but we haven’t decided if we’re going for 7 days or 10 days. I love my life. Thank you. -Elena

My Most Profound Meditation

Friday, February 21st, 2014

One of my most profound and memorable meditations was actually very early after I learned to meditate.

It was Feb 14th, the best day I was told to chant “Om Nama Shiviya.” I was having the most pleasant meditation, despite my constant effort to ‘not think anything.’

Quite suddenly I was catapulted through space and time. I exploded into another realm. It was very much like Star Trek when they go into Hyper Space. The picture that I saw in that “Hyper Space” moment was like an opal illuminated and glowing with a halo of light. It almost looked like the Sun with light pouring through it from the backside, spraying and fanning out all around it. It was like looking directly into the sun without being able to, or wanting to, disengage. I was completely disconnected from this body and even the universe. I was only consciousness. This was a sensational experience such that I can only attempt to describe.

Meditation

I experienced a sort of explosion of absolute release and joy far greater than any physical orgasm. Yet, that is the closest way I can describe it. It was beyond an orgasm of gargantuan proportion. This was like an orgasm of body, mind, and spirit in total orchestra.

I have been meditating since 1988. I’ve had other fantastic experiences, but this opened something very powerful in my spiritual quest.

In 25 years, I have not recorded much of my meditations. I have experienced so much that I wish I had recorded every experience however mundane or exciting. During my meditation journey, I have glimpses of lessons, past life recalls, visits from loved ones that have passed over. I have had out-of-body experiences, prophecy, and I have felt the Earth move. There have been visits to other galaxies, geometric shapes, and colors. I have seen spectacular light shows and heard sounds from another dimension. I have been blessed to experience the past, present, and future of clients and myself. I am grateful and humbled by the many other souls that have allowed me a glimpse of them as divinity.

With all these rich experiences, meditation continues to draw me to the heart of God.

I have also been to a place they call “The Void.” At first, a few sepia-like pictures formed of Great Masters such as Jesus and 2 others known to me but without a name. A powerful flash of light and the world just seemed to fall out from under me. I felt suspended, and then I felt ‘nothing’. At first, I tried to describe it as neutral or nothing. I can’t give words to describe “The Void.” because it cannot really be described even as nothing. To describe anything, it becomes some-thing rather than no-thing.

Are you caught up in meditation for the entertainment of it? To accomplish something such as receiving answers? Remember please that meditation is to join with God, just as you visit a loved one, not to have a flashy experience. It is such a blessing to visit God. Not looking for an outcome but to be in the presence of God even for a moment. I still get distracted. Some visits are spectacular, and some are a bit more on the uneventful side. All are blessed moments with our creator.

Meditation is to be with God. To know yourself and to know God.

What are some of your meditation experiences?

Namaste

How I Found My Love

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Here is a wonderful blog post by a good friend of mine, Elena Vega. Thank you for writing this. -Shawna

A few years ago, I started wondering if I would ever find love again. A messy divorce, my finances ruined, my daughter asking about her “never around” dad. That experience left me with such a terrible taste in my mouth. Still, I wanted to love again. I wanted someone to be with me in my day-to-day challenges and successes. I wanted the companionship of a partner, but the feeling of loneliness was so familiar to me.

One day, I was talking with one of my girlfriends, and I started complaining about my loveless love life. She said, “Maybe you’re not ready. If you were ready, wouldn’t you already have a partner?”

LOVE

It was like someone had dropped a ton of bricks on top of me. You see, I believe in the Law of Attraction. In short, the law of attraction says that anything that is like unto itself is drawn. If I am putting attention to the lack of a lover, the universe will bring me more of that. It is hard not to notice the absence of something we want. It used to hurt that I didn’t have a lover, but mostly, I was used to feeling the hurt of my ex-husband.

In order to attract a lover, I had to focus my energy, my attention, and my feelings elsewhere. I know this is easier said than done, but it had to be done. I was tired of being lonely.

Everyday, I would focus my attention for a few minutes writing and saying each of these statements:

1- I remember being in a happy relationship.
2- I remember feeling loved by a lover.
3- It feels good to love a lover.
4- It’s amazing to hear someone tell me they love me.
5- I love the warmth of my lover in my bed.
6- It feels incredible to be adored by my lover.
7- The feeling of being deeply in love is unreal.
8- I like being in an easy relationship.
9- When I’m in love, it’s captivating.
10- I like being in a gentle, soft, comfortable relationship.
11- There’s joy, happiness, and fun in a relationship.
12- It feels good to think about my lover.

I didn’t just say these statements. I felt each of them. That is the most important key to this message. Thinking them first, then feeling them. I got to a point where I felt so good, that it really didn’t matter if my lover came or not. I was too busy feeling the goodness of what a lover felt like. I know through the Law of Attraction, I didn’t have to do anything or go anywhere in order for it to happen. The only thing I had to do was tend to my own vibration. When it feels easy and there is no resistance, the Universe must provide. And it did. He is exactly what I had been feeling for… easy, comfortable, happy, fun, love.

If you’re still wondering if he’s THE ONE on Valentine’s Day, call Shawna. She knows.

I want a Love to call my own

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Are you in the mood for love? Looking for Marriage? Maybe just Friends with benefits? How about your Soul Mate!

LOVE
Do you want the good news first? Your next partner is looking for love too! Here is the tricky part. If you are still stuck on or traumatized by your last experience of love, well you are just out there attracting more of the same. You hopefully are familiar with that moment where you can see that thread of similarity that has run through all your previous relationships? Not to worry if you don’t know your patterns. You can learn to attract a better partner.

Previous traumas must be recognized and cleared, or you are not attracting anything new. My guess is, you are looking for something better or you’d still be in your last relationship.

Here are some techniques to help you clear the old patterns and attract the greatest love of your life:

I offer a form of healing outside and beyond any of the traditional methods. To explain in words what happens with Spirit can be difficult, but here it goes.

couple in love
I am a Reiki Master, and of course, I channel our Source just the same as I do during readings. With this, I take you into a Journey of deep realization. This is to bring forward those epiphanies about your love life patterns from early life and past lives. Once you personally experience these revelations you can proceed to reclaim your future love life. Redirect your energy habits and attract your True Love.

Whether you see me for a Love Life Clearing or to find your own way. Please don’t sleepwalk right into the next disaster or even ‘almost great’ relationship. I encourage you to examine your past love and let the pains and Joys of the past propel you toward your Soul Mate!

True Love is a birthright and meant for you.

Wishing you a GREAT LOVE to challenge any love story ever written.

Dream Boards

Friday, January 24th, 2014

My family and I have been making dream boards for close to 20 years now. Young children have dreams too, and I have seen my kids attract good friends, good grades and fun accomplishments over the years. You may have heard them called “Goals Boards” or “Vision Boards.” I also do this activity every year, usually in January, with a business group of women.

Cutting Up Magazines

Here is our style. We like to begin by inviting God to join us for our highest good and depending on the group this might be prayer, meditation, or a moment to silently set our intention. We all bring magazines to share. Any magazine has the potential to contain just the right picture or saying for someone. We gather around a big table or on the floor and clip out potential sayings and photos. We discuss what each person is manifesting and share just the right picture with each other if we come across it. We laugh and cry sometimes as we confess our deepest desires. I find this is an important part of getting in touch with what you really desire.

Mostly we have used poster board to construct our “Goals” collage. Some people prefer to use a binder page or many pages. The binder works especially well to tuck it away privately and also to devote a page to each affirmation. My husband and I enjoy keeping ours in our walk in closet. This way we see it every day and we can support each other in our goals. We have also made goals boards that represent for the whole family together.

After we have collected many potential treasures in the form of sayings and pictures, we begin the construct our boards. Sorting and gluing is a very individual process. Some like to plop all of it on together and others prefer an area devoted on the board to each dream. Ideally, it is a creative and very personal, perhaps even passionate, process.

Anything goes if it inspires you and represents your dreams. I would however caution the use of the photo of a particular person that you desire. This actually limits the creativity in the universe. It is a better choice to put photos of people in love that exhibit or exude the feeling you wish to have in love. There may be a love out there far more suited to you and you can this way attract the essence or experience of the love you desire.

Dreaming Big

Dream boards can be embellished with anything you enjoy. I typically add glitter to mine. It reminds me of pixy dust, magic, or the sparkle of spirit. Plus, I just love sparkle.

At the end, we go around the group and share what we have chosen for our Dream boards and why. We end with prayer of intent that each person’s dreams manifest in the perfect way for them.

Have fun and watch as everything on your dream board becomes a reality in your life. Namaste.
