When my parents were sick and dying I encountered several healers who implied that maybe we just hadn’t done the right work to heal them. Some implied that they must have manifested their cancers and we just needed to clear the belief that cancer exists in them. Besides being incredibly insensitive, their words were false and misleading.

We never "get over" losing someone close to us, but we can come to a place of acceptance. Accepting our new situation allows growth and happiness and encourages peace. We all come to acceptance in our own way. Sometimes we fight it, refusing to accept our new reality. Fighting to keep something that no longer exists simply causes us pain and keeps us stuck. We first have to admit defeat and then we can begin to accept.
After we moved into a new house, a few years ago, I was standing in the living room of my new house trying to arrange a window scarf the way my Mom did hers.

It has been a weird couple of weeks in my neck of the woods. I know of about 10 suicides and several fatal car accidents. For small town Idaho that is a lot of death in just a few days. Many of my clients have been asking questions about death, where do we go, what it is like, etc.
Have you ever stepped into the mud, I mean deep, like clear to your knee? Did you notice that it was much easier to just stay there than to try to get out? It took only a little effort to step into it, but so much more to get out.
I had a defining moment this week. One of those moments that you will never forget, it's in your head like a Norman Rockwell painting that never disappears.
I have loved music all my life. I grew up singing. My parents used to teach us the lyrics to their favorite songs by the Beatles, John Denver, Kenny Rogers, The Mamas and the Papas, Peter, Paul and Mary and many more.
I know that we live in a world of conveniences and “gotta have it now” thinking. I am just as susceptible as anyone else to irritation and frustration when things don’t work out as I want them to.
As an empath it used to be a challenge for me to know where my experience ended and someone else’s began. As a child I felt other people’s pain so strongly that I took it on as my own.
