(This happened in the summer of 2015!) For several weeks I have been suffering severe pain from my disease Ankylosing Spondylitis. The exciting news is along with my daily universal healing meditation, I have added a new fixed tool that has been developed by scientists. You can purchase this great technology in the form of jewelry. I use my pendant when I meditate and I have actually found relief. For several nights since purchasing my necklace I have not taken any pain medication. This progress is based on Quantum Science, so if you are interested in learning about this optimum energy please contact me for a reading or I will be arranging a quantum meditation class.
Learn from the wonderful light around you,
*Please note, as of 11.23.2015 I realized that I have created this venue for healing! You must continue your physician appointments, but I am utilizing the Quantum Science with my Quantum meditation to release the pain in my back. It is almost a year that I have been pain free. Contact me for further information...

2016, the year of confidence and making informed decisions. "Never let
emotion cloud your view of a situation. Be calm and focused! Always
turn to research if you need more information." Finally, stop being a victim! This is very difficult, but I have written an article on steps to help eliminate this habit from continuing in your life. Also, I am teaching a class to reinforce positive change.
2015, the year of releasing the need for retribution and gaining empowerment!
2014, a year of understanding and rebirth (creating your heaven on Earth!)
2013, a year of renewed peace and self-fulfillment!

Thoth Tarot Deck
The Thoth Tarot is a very spiritual deck painted by Lady Frieda Harris according to instructions from Aleister Crowley. Crowley referred to this deck as The Book of Thoth, and also wrote a book of that title intended for use with the deck. This deck is such a high vibration entity and is for today's awakened society. The message and energy from this deck is amazing and I highly recommend everyone have at least one reading from these cards. They were created from 1938 and 1943!
Egyptian Tarot Deck
The deck was published by the Church of Light under the name Egyptian Tarot Cards, also known as The Brotherhood of Light Tarot which takes its name from the organization which C.C. Zain founded. The material in Zain's book was first published by him in 1918 as a series of instructional courses, and was at that time illustrated with the reproductions from Practical Astrology. These cards are very Earthy and break down your path completely. There are several types of interpretation based on your belief system. Very rare in today's multitude of tarot decks.
Geometric Polyhedrons Quartz Crystals
The Geometric Set is a group of three-dimensional shapes that are considered by Plato to be the math of creation. All of life on Earth was created with these five polyhedron figures. The inner most aspects of your being are these shapes. Think of them as doors that have been closed for a long time and now you have the key to open them. A key made from the Earth in the various shapes of the door itself. A polyhedron is a geometric object with flat and straight edges where all sides are equal within these five shapes. A wonderful fixed tool to help you discover your inner-self. This is also a means to connect to someone in an energy reading. I utilize these crystals to have a deeper connect with each tarot deck!

Everyone has challenges in their life, but sometimes things happen that shake us to our core. We physically internalize the event not sure if we want to live or die. Our emotional world is crushed, all we want to do is cry and hide. Intellectually, knowing that if we are around anyone, they can see through us, and see our pain. This my dear friends is a cosmic lesson!
We must meet quite a few of these tests within our lifetime. But, please know that there is help from our spiritual side. All we have to do is ask and the signs will be in front of us to
assist us. Just open your eyes...
One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the
only strength which can overcome adversity."
Awakening to New Energy's
As we (Earth & Us) raise our vibration, wonderful gifts will be revealed and given. It is for the awakened to find and draw on, bringing in this "effervescent"
energy. An example of this process is all the semi-precious stones and crystals that are newly discovered. To help this process along, I will be listing these that LaSoon has led me to:
Movie - "Cafe`" with Jennifer Love Hewitt
A wonderful little movie that gives us insight into our true "Universe." This film delves into explaining how we are creators of our physical world. How our lessons and challenges roll down from our spiritual world. "Highly recommended for content!"
"Joe Somebody" with Tim Allen
This movie gem uses humor to explain the difference between desire versus need! This is such an important lesson, sometimes with desire we are unsure as to what we truly want! You will really enjoy the moments of "Joe" finally learning his need over desire! How Joe finds peace and completeness with him making decisions from a place of need...
AuBois, il va un oiseau; Son chant vous arrete et vopus fait rougir...
"In the woods there is a bird; his song stops you and makes you blush."
Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood
"What though the radiance which was once so
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be;
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of human suffering;
In the faith that looks through death,
In years that bring the philosophic mind."
This is an excerpt from a very beautiful poem, Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood by William Wordsworth (1770-1850)
"Awake" - A show about parallel universes, how we are living in different dimensions at the same time. Very powerful information if you take the time a sift through each episode.
"Life" - This program on Netflix is about a police detective who is following the philosophy of Zen and how he lives it in his life! One of the more intriguing aspects is the people around the main character, who without knowing start to emulate him.
THE VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT
BY GERRY KENNEDY & ROB CHURCHILL
The unsolved riddle of an extraordinary book which has defied interpretation for centuries. The manuscript was rediscovered in 1912 and written in an unknown language, or undecipherable code, it contains hundreds of illustrations of weird plants, bizarre cosmological diagrams and, most tantalizing of all inexplicable scenes of naked nymphs bathing in a strange, green liquid. The manuscript was donated to Yale University. This book gives the history of the manuscript and a number of illustrations.
by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus is one of my favorite thought provokers as I call them. Marcus was referred to as the wise and was Emperor of the Roman Empire from 161 to 180, and was considered one of the "Five Good Emperors."
Marcus Aurelius' work "Meditations," is still revered as a literary great and has been extensively quoted for "its spiritual insight and expression of tenderness."
"The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts, therefore guard accordingly; and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue, and reasonable nature."
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121 AD - 180 AD)

Current Vibrational Events
"Yes dear friends, there are several ways the environment can affect us, in a non-contact way. It can ripple through our auras and disrupt our harmonics. We can react from these rhythms through our spiritual, emotional, physical and mental bodies. They are referred to as vibrational events, and if we have an understanding of it, it will lessen the impact.
The affects of solar and lunar activities have been documented for centuries. All we need to do is keep track of these events and accept and adjust to their influences for a positive optimum effect.
But, a cause that can completely disturb our harmonics is another persons aura. If that person is directing negative thoughts towards you it can have the same influence as the sun and moon. One simple way to dissipate this energy blast is to ignore it. Do not return the negativity, just mirror their energy back to the person that is sending it. It is so easy to do when you know you have the power! Then let them deal with what they have dished out. It is clearly returned with double the punch for them to contend with.
