May 30 marked the first anniversary of my award-winning best-selling teaching memoir, Wisdom Keeper: My Extraordinary Journey to Unlock the Sacred Within. It has been quite a year! The main themes of my book—Faith, Trust, and Surrender—are central to everything. Those themes run through everything I do, which makes my life much easier. I no longer depend on my ego-based self to get things done. Instead, I actively partner with my Spirit Guides to lead me. A subtitle of this post could be “How to Bring More Ease and Grace in Your Life.”


Surrendering can seem scary. What if nothing happens? Something is always happening. A ‘no’ or not receiving a message is still an answer and a direction to follow. You may think you are not receiving guidance. Many times, when you aren’t sure if you are being guided, it is because it is not time to change course at that moment.


Take baby steps if it feels too overwhelming to turn your whole life over. Choose one thing in your life and commit to letting go of controlling the activity or outcome. Trust and believe that the Spirit world always has your back when you allow them to help you.


One of the most significant changes I made this past year was agreeing to do more healing sessions. For all of you I turned down in the beginning, I apologize. Initially, I thought doing private healing sessions would take too much time away from my bigger goal of healing the world. My first in-person session was in late September 2022. I slowly started taking on more remote and in-person healing sessions. I realized some of my healing sessions involve significant past-life spiritual leaders and healers. My job is to help them remember and fully step into their power. The world will need many strong spiritual leaders and healers to help with healing and rebuilding.


A big lesson for me was to trust more. Since no one knew my complete story, it took me a while to ease into being comfortable with the entire world having access to this very detailed account of my life. I was concerned that some people would attack me and my book just because they had not had the same experiences. Happy to say that has rarely happened. Observing people’s ‘aha’ moments when they talk about my book has been so rewarding.


The same is true for my healing work. I have witnessed people’s lives change and improve, because I trusted I was supposed to do healing sessions with them. Something very magical is happening with the healing sessions. Many times the Soul Bodies of people from the Ancient Egyptian lifetime, in addition to my Spirit Guides and the Guides of my clients, come to help with the healings. Lots of people are awakening and healing!

When was the last time you did something you weren’t sure would be worth doing? I had this experience a few months ago. Having heard fantastic things about the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuaries in Mexico, I was still on the fence about arranging transportation and a guide. When my son visited me, he said his biggest priority was seeing the Monarch Sanctuary, so we went.


The entire experience was a fantastic lesson in surrendering and trusting Spirit. We were speechless when my son and I arrived at the top of the mountain and saw the butterflies. Little tears of Divine Joy rolled down our cheeks as we took in this impressive, miraculous display of nature at its finest. I loved their beauty, but the most significant impact on me was the butterflies’ willingness and cooperation to surrender every year to this migration experience. What a beautiful example of agreeing to participate for the greater good of all.


It would be lovely to see that same willingness in the human realm. Our world has become so divided, with each side demanding their way is the best choice. Very little cooperation happens between opposing sides. I fantasize about making world leaders come to a butterfly sanctuary and stay there until they see we are all truly connected to each other and to the world.


It is estimated over 500,000 North American monarch butterflies migrate to Mexico every year. Some fly almost 3,000 miles to reach Mexico. The monarch butterflies have been around for nearly two million years. Some believe the Monarch’s migratory patterns are the most highly developed of similar species.


Watching the multitude of butterflies, safe in their sanctuary, brought me to a profound spiritual place. They weren’t questioning if they should be there; the butterflies were all playing their role. It takes four generations of butterflies to complete the migration each year, a perfect system that has been going on for years.


How can we embody the lessons the monarch butterflies give us?

Spiritually, butterflies represent rebirth and transformation. They have the characteristics of endurance, strength, trust, and evolution.


Cooperation: Is it easy for you to cooperate with others? Do you hold out until you get everything you want? Or, are you more likely to find solutions so that more people will join you? If the world is going to make it, we must cooperate. Practice cooperation whenever you can.


Surrender: Do you always want to have your way? Can you soften and lean into different ways of seeing and doing things?


Trust: Believe all is well. Know that Spirit has your back. Let your Spirit Guides know you want them in your life.


Willingness: Take a deep breath. Inhale the energy of letting go; exhale controlling energy. Continue this breathing exercise until you don’t have any resistance to let go of your attachments for a specific outcome.


If you can’t make it to Mexico to visit one of the Monarch sanctuaries, be open to finding other miraculous opportunities to experience. Spiritual and life lessons are everywhere.

It's that time of year when we look back at our lives to determine what we need to let go of and our intentions for the new year. Creating space for new things to flow by letting go of people, places, situations, or possessions that are no longer in alignment with our highest good, is a great practice.


What about letting go of something you love but don't need anymore? Do you find yourself resisting, thinking you might need it later? Sometimes I like to challenge myself to give someone a personal item that is very special to me. I want my energy to flow freely, and I do not want to be so attached to an article that I can't let go of it.


The fire in the above photo was burning 50 years of journal writing. Honestly, I never thought I would get rid of them. My journals were a significant part of my life; writing in them helped me to process and release so much! I used to enjoy rereading them to see and remember how far I have come.


So, how did they end up in a bonfire? I was in the U.S. doing book events; it was an excellent time to clean my storeroom. Most of the boxes were things I did not need anymore, and I had no problem releasing them. The journals were another story. Through tears and laughter, I poured my heart and soul into them. Even if I could have taken them with me, I didn't like the idea that they would be there for anyone to read after I left this life.


My son suggested I burn my old tax records in a bonfire. Then it dawned on me I could also make the bonfire a ceremony to honor and burn my journals. It was one of the most potent and meaningful 'letting go' ceremonies I have ever experienced.


Watching them burn was part of the surrendering process, as my writing in the journals had been such an essential part of my life. I knew if I started glancing through them, I might be unable to let them go. So, I took a deep breath, inhaling all the beautiful lessons I learned while baring my soul in my journals. As I exhaled, I thanked my journal-writing experience; my heart knew I did not need them anymore.


Having my son be there with me as a witness helped me release all those thoughts and dreams I had captured in my journals. It was a perfect reminder that life continues to move forward and bring change. Here sat my son, who has been a part of my life for 36 years, watching me let go of 50 years of writing. He knows and appreciates how vital my written communication has been throughout my life. What a poignant moment!


Push the envelope and let more go.

My son, who entered this life as a wise old soul, encouraged me to let go of more things I no longer need. The day before the bonfire, he suggested I ‘work smarter, not harder’ by focusing more on marketing my book online rather than pursuing physical book events. My son knows and is proud of my strong marketing and public relations background, so this caught my attention.


First, he reminded me how well it worked when I fully surrendered to my Spirit Guides to help me write the book. Then he asked some simple questions.


"Why are you still trying to direct all your marketing efforts yourself? Why aren't you letting your Spirit Guides lead the way? You trusted them to help you write the book, and you already have four awards to prove how valuable their input has been. Many people have found you and your book with little effort on your part. Don't you think that is a sign? It's time to lean back and give the marketing reins to your Guides. Surrender, trust, and have faith--aren't those the main components of your book?"


I had asked myself those questions many times.


Then my son did the sweetest thing—he bought four of my books for people to hand out as gifts.


He said, "This is how your book will continue to reach people. There is a natural energy that is bringing your books to those who need them. Trust the process and be open to receiving the unexpected."


Transformation is coming. There is still time to review what you want to release. Choose at least one thing in each area of life—your mind, body, spirit, and space—to let go. Write each of them on a separate slips of paper.


Next, choose things in each of those areas that you want to bring into your life in 2023 and write them down on a piece of paper. Please put them in a special place so they can remind you of your personal transformational goals.


Do a simple ceremony. Meditate, thanking Spirit for bringing healing and transformation to your life. Light candles and use incense or essential oils to enhance the experience. Inhale deeply, visualizing the new things you are ushering into your life. As you exhale, see yourself letting go of what is no longer needed.


Then, one at a time, read what you are releasing. After you read each item, please take a deep breath as you exhale and let it go. Afterward, burn the slip of paper. Feel the release wash over you. End the ceremony by reading your list of your intentions for 2023. Trust and remain open to new things that appear to replace what you released.


To help you on your transformational journey, I am offering a live Question & Answer session on Zoom. Anyone who subscribes to my Wisdom newsletter can participate in the session.
