Colossal Love

In the quiet moments of the "usual" we spirit beings will find peace and knowing. Just as falling in love may take us by surprise, the spiritual "knowing" will creep up on our inner souls and wrap us with arms of beauty and love. Suddenly we know. We know God is all around and through us. A great colossal knowing of Love is all we need to continue on our journey of spirit.

Winter Solstice

On this Winter Solstice the chill in the air seems to be more than just that of a temperature change. The weather has changed here in Sedona, it is cold and damp with rain that's been falling for the last few days. But there is more then a weather shift occurring, it seems the Earth is weeping. Perhaps it is my own personal life only, but no, it seems to be Universal, it feels Universal. Many people are shifting and changing all at once and there have been sudden deaths and sicknesses on the rise. I am shivering a bit as I sit with all of my animals by my little Christmas tree and I wonder if anyone else can feel this shift? It doesn't seem like Christmas. I hope these changes are quick to transform. At times it can seem life is over bearing, a burden, an emotion of heaviness and mistrust. Yet I know as I took my walk today and saw the lovely pinks and reds that caressed the sky life is a precious gift. We as humans have an amazing scope of vision. We can experience and see the burdens, the gifts, and the memories all intertwined at once and the ride can sometimes be overwhelming. I wish all of you today a Sacred and Blessed Winter Solstice and a Merry Christmas. Open your heart to all emotions and love. Open your mind and your soul and let the flood of everything possible fill you. All is a gift.

Thankful on this Blessed Day

This is our second Thanksgiving in Sedona! We are truly thankful for our home on wheels and the wonderful food we had today! Also I just wanted to say I am thankful for all of you! Life is so beautiful and sweet!! This year is our first Thanksgiving with Maya! AND Luna! SO, SO, SO, Thankful for love and life and these sweet babies! Hope you all had a blessed day ~ Love, Amy, Ron, Brigid, Maya, And Luna!

 Garlic & Ginger!!!

 Waiting for her food patiently ~ Gentle Maya
 Beautiful Brigid
 Yes today Luna was allowed to eat on the table!


There seems to be a feeling of sadness when I think about my body being sick and unbalanced. Then I remember this should be a cause for joy, because I am healing and becoming balanced and well. Why then do I feel shame arise and whisper negative thoughts of hopelessness: I am "flawed" somewhere along the way. I must have been "too emotional", "too negative," avoiding life, resistant. Human nature is so comical in this way. Our minds cannot rest and know something without dissecting it and analyzing its every flavor. Artists seem to be even more crazy about this! Healing is such a complex beautiful dance. Along the way of this dance we sometimes feel we have "been there, done that," and we are resisting doing it all over again. The frustration rises, the sadness floods in. All of this is ok. All of this is necessary and good. The journey of healing the body, mind, and spirit is what we are here for so that we can heal others; assist others and love others with a clear and open heart that is brimming with pure love and health. I wish healing to all of you.

I have been blessed to welcome a new family member into my heart! Her name is Luna. I have named her Luna after the Full Moon of November. I felt compelled once again to have a cat in my life. It's been awhile since I have shared a home with cat energy. Luna picked me, although I was looking for her. I didn't know exactly what cat would accept me. I spent time with various rescue cats at the Humane Society in Sedona. Last Sunday I was getting ready to adopt a male kitten when I met Luna. Another person wanted to adopt the cat I had my eyes on, so I knew he was not the cat for me. Luna was struggling with other people holding her. She seemed almost antisocial and annoyed by the hands that were eager to touch and hold her. I was given her to hold after much exasperation from many people was spent. I took her into my hands. We instantly made a connection. I could feel Reiki flowing with great force and Luna seemed so content and happy to be with me. Many people watching were in awe of this. The woman who had raised and fostered her was equally surprised and commented that this kitten was not social or gentle. As I was deciding whether I wanted to adopt her another couple wanted to take her. I felt I had to give her to them. I couldn't hold her back from being adopted even though I felt a yearning to take her. I stepped out to decide what I should do. When I returned she was being adopted by the couple. I was very sad but realized this was ok, and there would be another cat that would need a home in the future. I asked if I could fill out an application just in case the couple decided they did not want her. As I was filling out the paperwork the couple with tears in their eyes handed me Luna. The woman expressed with hand over her heart that she felt compelled to give me the tiny kitten. And that Luna wanted me not them. I began to cry also and the volunteers at the shelter joined in. There were hugs and bittersweet smiles and suddenly Luna was going home with me. I was warned she would probably hide under the bed for a week and that she was not a very friendly kitten. She has been amazing. She is gentle, loving, serene, playful, and will even go hiking with us! She sleeps soundly through the night and loves raw beef and chicken! She weighs only one pound and reminds us of a tiny grey mouse. Truly this is an amazing kitten with much grace and spirit. I am thankful for this blessing of my little Moon!

Shifting ~ Changing And Sedona

In between emotions I can sense the powerful movement of vibration and endless energy. The waves of Sedona move within me and bring me back to center. The first year of living in Sedona was similar to riding a roller coaster or a bull. There was a lot of thrill and yet danger and detoxing. I thought today as the rain pounded the little motor home I inhabit, that this desert has been like a loving but strict parent. There has not been any "easy" lessons to learn this time around! I feel the love of Sedona now like never before. "She" is like an amazing blossoming rose. The closed red blooming love that opens and breathes Earths gifts slowly but surely and opens with an array of reds and laughter, tears, and escaping into the mind. She builds character and illuminates justice. She flows and dances in a direction that shows your "knowing" may change with the shifts of the Earth. We may change. We do change. The saying that "people never change" is a false statement.And if you believe it come to Sedona!

The Blessings of Sedona

I am back in Sedona again! Amazing the trip has come and gone....the days are flying by! It reminds me I must be in the moment and enjoy and savor the gold dust we are given! I am so very grateful I left Sedona. I have returned with a new and lively appreciation for this beautiful land. I will be posting again now that I am settled back into my home on wheels :~)

The beauty of Sedona is more then just the land...the Red is the people, the organic food, the green trees, the plentiful water, and so much more. I am so very grateful I can call Sedona home. I am also grateful for the past year. I had many lessons to learn. I found being grateful for pain and sickness is possible! It never feels your pain is positive when you are experiencing it, but it is on so many levels. I can now say it is a gift. I will be rereading this blog to remind myself of this I AM sure!!! But today I feel a happiness and contentment that fills my heart and opens my mind.

I am so grateful for my family and friends. Without my family and friends I could never love myself and life the way that I do! This past year has been a journey for me and I have had nothing but utter support and love from many people. Thank you!

I look forward to writing and posting in the winter months!

Time to Travel

It's August 28th, and in 4 days we are leaving Sedona. I am sad to leave behind the Red Rocks but am excited to see Santa Fe again, Colorado, friends in Connecticut and family in Pennsylvania! I will do my best to post as we travel!

The following are pictures from a year ago! We have been in Sedona for nearly a year....I've learned so much about Me! And We have gained a new family member, lost one (Kelso) And been on an adventure of a lifetime! There has much healing and soul searching here. I know we will return in November, but as I say goodbye to the desert i feel I am saying goodbye to part of me. I believe Ron feels this way also. And I know Brigid does! Maya has never been out of Arizona! She loves to travel and is looking forward to meeting new friends!

Beauty Speed

The breeze filters through the weeping trees. Each tree thanking this beauty speed. The ground waits in anticipation, the dirt thirsty for rain, the moon shines and calls; it begins to rain. I am waiting for something perhaps it's myself. I feel my aching body connected to earth and wonder if suffering will cease on this earth plane we visit. Everyday I feel closer to something what is it? I know it is Source, God, Beauty, Nature, and Universe. I see the connection I feel the truth. It seems to wrap me in comfort and soothe my broken heart. At times it may seem and feel we are alone, yet beauty captures us and calls us her own. I write these words without judgment or scorn. I can no longer hold back the emotion and knowledge. They seem to be one: wisdom ~ emotion. Like the sea and the shore they dance and connect. I think its the contrast that serves us the best! Some see chaos as evil, but I wonder if it's only to show us the healing potential we have within.

Memories that Remind and Renew

I was reminded recently by a beautiful person that animals have work to do here on Earth, even after death. A few years ago I had a beautiful rabbit named Mocha. When he was very ill I had to end his life. After he was gone I wrote this quickly down on a piece of paper. Mocha was a beautiful soul. I adopted him when he was already an older rabbit. His previous owners had not taken care of him and he had extreme dental problems. After a costly operation and removal of teeth, he still suffered daily. When I brought him to the vet to watch him go to sleep forever, I realized as he was dying it was not the end for him. I actually saw a light around him when he died. It was as if I could see his soul leave his body. It was a very humbling experience and I never doubted that animals had souls. But when I saw this miracle before my eyes I have to admit I was amazed. Thank you Mocha.
Thrashing for life
breaths short yet strong
Body free now
Soul gone
Life ~ Life ~ Life
Born again to the ground
Fern and moss
covered and still
Run in the wind, legs quick and sharp
alive again dodging logs and trees
Breeze ~ Sky ~ Water
Grass, soft and lush
A bird to the sun and start again
You die to be born again
I felt you soul
Saw its form
You will always live now

Love is the Most Powerful Medicine

by Ram Dass

One day in India on my second stay, Maharaji said to me, “You don’t have to change anybody; you just have to love them”. In relationships, when the other person doesn’t fit into your model of how heaven would be, you don’t have to play God. You just have to love individual differences and appreciate them the way they are. Because love is the most powerful medicine.
The key is that you aren’t even doing it manipulatively: “I love you, now change.” You’re looking at another being, just the way they are, and saying, “Let me appreciate God’s perfection.” You lost the key?  Great. You forgot to pick up the laundry? Right. If each of us is separate, and yet each of us is part of the whole, but we got lost a little bit into dualism and we’re finding our way back out, every time we’re in the presence of unconditional love, we remember. And when we remember, we open. And when we open, the light pours through us.
If you became a person who could love unconditionally, everyone you love would flower before your very eyes. Every way you look would be light. That’s one of the fringe benefits of this method. It’s breathtaking. At every level.

Brigid and Maya

She's sleeping and I love her restful eyes and soft breathing fur
She's dreaming and I can capture these subconscious thoughts of endless fields and climbing rocks
She's perfect and I sigh
her tiny eyes and wet nose
She's in my life and I'm grateful,
feeling she is part of me and I am a mother to this special beast
they love me and I'm in bliss
the love from these two dogs completes my soul and soothes my mind
Forever bringing me joy.

Art Gallery Thoughts

Feeling the Elements
Taking them in: Streaming
Elements of Time
Elements of Nature
The Source of all ~ The Force
the ability to speak through pen and paper
Through Canvas and Paint
the ideas of man
the emotions of woman

Staring and Blank ~ Haunted
Envisioned within the canvas of the mind
I can see the truth

Rock Me Mother

Darkness in the voice, terror in the energy. It's difficult to escape the threat of our peace within being swept away ~ swallowed and stolen. Breathe and smile, resting within. There is a knowing, a turning, an allowance of stillness. Find the quiet, the soft rain, the breathing trees, the sighing dog. Thank the quiet, care for Her, love Her, embrace Her. The calm will rock you and Mother you forever.

Art: Wound Turned into Light

"At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity." (Rachel Naomi Remen, MD)
 "Creativity healed me. I don’t know that I could think of any word that I get more inspired by than the word healing." ~ SARK

"Making art is like giving a gift: evidence of your spirit and that you are here."
~ Patty Mitchell
"The portal of healing and creativity always takes us into the realm of the spirit."
~ Angeles Arrien


Peace Moments

A moment of peace
Passing though me like wind
She is beauty washing my mind
He is strength creating my body
All is One within each other
I am energy
And Spirit
All One

The Voice, is it Ours?

The Path of Unconditional Happiness

I have not read this book yet, although I do plan on reading it in the near future! :)
"The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself"
From Chapter 15: The Path of Unconditional Happiness
The highest spiritual path is life itself. If you know how to live daily life, it all becomes a liberating experience. But first you have to approach life properly, or it can be very confusing. To begin with, you have to realize that you really only have one choice in this life, and it's not about your career, whom you want to marry, or whether you want to seek God. People tend to burden themselves with so many choices. But, in the end, you can throw it all away and just make one basic, underlying decision: Do you want to be happy, or do you not want to be happy? It's really that simple. Once you make that choice, your path through life becomes totally clear.
Most people don't dare give themselves that choice because they think it's not under their control. Someone might say, “Well, of course I want to be happy, but my wife left me.” In other words, they want to be happy, but not if their wife leaves them. But that wasn't the question. The question was, very simply, “Do you want to be happy or not?” If you keep it that simple, you will see that it really is under your control. It's just that you have a deep-seated set of preferences that gets in the way.
Let's say you've been lost and without food for days, and you finally find your way to a house. You can hardly make it to the doorstep, but you manage to pull yourself up and knock on the door. Somebody opens the door, looks at you and says, “Oh my God! You poor thing! Do you want something to eat? What would you like?” Now the truth is, you really don't care what they give you. You don't even want to think about it. You just utter the word “food.” And because you really mean it when you say you need food, it no longer has anything to do with your mental preferences. The same goes for the question about happiness. The question is simply “Do you want to be happy?” If the answer is really yes, then say it without qualifying it. After all, what the question really means is “Do you want to be happy from this point forward for the rest of your life, regardless of what happens?”
Now, if you say yes, it might happen that your wife leaves you, or your husband dies, or the stock market crashes, or your car breaks down on an open highway at night. Those things might happen between now and the end of your life. But if you want to walk the highest spiritual path, then when you answer yes to that simple question, you must really mean it. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. It's not a question of whether your happiness is under your control. Of course it's under your control. It's just that you don't really mean it when you say you're willing to stay happy. You want to qualify it. You want to say that as long as this doesn't happen, or as long as that does happen, then you're willing to be happy. That's why it seems like it is out of your control. Any condition you create will limit your happiness. You simply aren't going to be able to control things and keep them the way you want them.
You have to give an unconditional answer. If you decide that you're going to be happy from now on for the rest of your life, you will not only be happy, you will become enlightened. Unconditional happiness is the highest technique there is. You don't have to learn Sanskrit or read any scriptures. You don't have to renounce the world. You just have to really mean it when you say that you choose to be happy. And you have to mean it regardless of what happens. This is truly a spiritual path, and it is as direct and sure a path to Awakening as could possibly exist.
