I have been blessed to work with some amazing people over the years and this year is no exception. I have an amazing group of women that I would love to gift with a $100 scholarship to attend a spiritual retreat with me in Asheville, NC. I have already given them 50% off on the retreat cost, but would like to provide some additional support, as they have all gone through some significant family and financial challenges. Below is a little bit of their stories and ways you can help me reach this goal, as well as information about gifts for you too!
Prizes and Free Gift For Participants
When you make a love offering to the Crossroads Coaching Fund for this fundraiser, you will have your name entered in this month’s raffles to win some wonderful prizes (your name will be entered for every $10 love offering – so for example, if you make a $100 love offering, your name will be entered 10 times). Everyone who participates will also receive a free gift of a MP3 recorded guided meditation I created to set up your energy system for the day ahead to help you have a GREAT DAY! Read on to learn more…
I wanted to share a little bit about the people who will benefit from this Fundraiser. Thank you for helping me help them!
Candidate One – This kind soul is the mother of a beautiful little boy. He was born with Down syndrome and other physical challenges that will require special care for his lifetime. His mother has been the principal caregiver for the seven years of his life and she is the most loving, wonderful mother! Along with caring for her son (including having to purée all his food, attempt to communicate with him as he is non-verbal, and meet his other needs), she has also had a chronic illness herself. She has had many other challenges along the way, but instead of giving up, she continues to push herself to learn and grow into her highest potential. She is a very gifted intuitive and has great personal insight. I am very happy to be able to coach her and help her move into her empowerment!
Candidate Two – Have you ever met anyone who always makes everyone feel at home? This candidate is like that. She is so genuinely kind and friendly that she is the heart of whatever group she is in. She always is willing to help and encourage and often takes care of everyone instead of taking care of herself. She has raised a beautiful daughter with Asperger’s Syndrome on her own and also cared for her mother, both of which still live with her. This last year has brought a lot of financial challenges with unexpected expenses because of medical challenges, cars breaking down, and debt from college. Despite all that is on her plate, she continues to focus on how she can grow spiritually, help others, and learn how to unconditionally love and support herself. I am incredibly grateful our paths have crossed and feel very honored to be able to help her continue growing her immense spiritual and personal gifts.
Candidate Three – I have great love and respect for this candidate! She has gone through many trials in her life, including going through breast cancer a year ago. She has spent her career learning about how to help others through studying nursing, nutrition, acupuncture, and social work. Going through cancer and chemotherapy deepened her commitment to a path of spiritual growth, deep inner reflection, and a desire to be of service to others. She has great self-awareness and I feel very lucky to have been a part of her journey! I would love to help her continue growing and healing through a scholarship for this retreat.

Below are some opportunities to connect for February. The first month of the Spiritual Support Network pilot program was a success, so I will be continuing it for February! This offers 50% off coaching services, along with other perks. You can learn more below, along with information about some of the events being offered:
I Ching Teaching Circles – Sunday 2/25 2-4PM (Hinckley, OH): The I Ching is a 5000 year old book and oracle that is based on the philosophy of Taoism. Taoism is explained in an ancient text called The Tao Te Ching 0r The Way of Life by Lao Tzu which teaches the philosophy of being in balance, working with the flow of yin and the yang, being in harmony with nature, non-resistance, and flowing with life. The I Ching is a much studied text and there are many versions of the book, some very complicated and confusing. We will be using two easy to access variations – The I Ching: Book of Changes by Brian Browne Walker that is a great introductory version and the Secrets of the I Ching by Joseph Murray. The first hour will focus on the process of getting guidance with the I Ching, doing a group reading, and the second hour will focus on giving you the opportunity to do a reading for yourself which I will help you interpret. I started my spiritual journey with the I Ching and worked with it extensively for several years. I am excited to share its philosophy and wisdom with you! You will need three pennies, paper, and pencil to participate. Book purchase is optional. Love Exchange: $15/Network Members or $30/Non-Network Members
Meditation Circles – Friday 2/9 (Granger, OH) and 2/23 7-9PM (Hinckley, OH)
Movement is a big theme for this year, so we will be starting the meditation circles with me sharing some of my favorite tools to settle the nervous system and to get your energy flowing optimally for the meditation. These will be gentle movement activities that share different energy balancing techniques you can also use during the meditation process. There will be a guided meditation, independent meditation time, and an opportunity to share as well. Love Exchange: $15/Network Members or $30/Non-Network.
Grow Your Gifts Reiki Workshop 2/17 (Saturday) 12 PM – 5 PM Hinckley, OH
In my work as an Intuitive Life Coach, my mission is to help people become empowered by clearing emotional, physical, mental and spiritual blocks, to connect them more deeply to their own innate wisdom and spiritual gifts, and to empower them to share those gifts as part of their life purpose. Learning a modality like Reiki offers a powerful tool to help in this process. Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique that offers many gifts to the practitioner and the one receiving the energy healing. It provides a way to balance and heal yourself, as well as shifting your vibration which makes it easier to connect with your Spiritual Support Team of Angels and Spirit Guides. For this workshop, you will be learning the answers to the following questions:
- What is Reiki?
- How can Reiki help empower me and those I love?
- What are the steps to administer Reiki?
- How can Reiki be used for healing?
- How is Reiki tied to my life purpose?
- How can I use Reiki in a way that is safe and nurturing for my system, especially for those who are highly sensitive?
- How can I keep my vibration high so I have increased clarity and accuracy when connecting with my intuition?
Participants in the workshop will be receiving Reiki One attunements, experiencing hands on instruction and practice time, learning how to work with their intuition using Reiki, and intuitive guidance on how to more deeply connect to your Spiritual Support Team using Reiki to support this process. This workshop will be co-taught by Reiki Masters, Nancy Nicholas and Neil Kopchak. Love Exchange: $50/Network Members or $100/Non-Members

I had a wonderful time with those who attended the Spiritual Toolkit workshop yesterday! It was great to see you all and to meet some wonderful new friends! I’m going to be having one more event this month on Friday September 22, 2017 to celebrate the Fall Equinox. I’ve made a slight adjustment from what I shared earlier in the month – it will be a two hour event, instead of a three hour event. There are TWO spots left. See below for details:
Fall Equinox Gathering
About the Gathering – For this event, we will be working with a Native American Fire Ceremony that focuses on forgiveness, releasing, and creating what we wish to bring in for a joyful season ahead. We will also be connecting with an earth energy center (kidney meridian vortex) on the property which will bring in energies that help clear fear and increase courage. Reiki Master Neil Kopchak will also be sharing his healing gifts through a mini Reiki balancing for each participant to provide additional support and I’ll be sharing intuitive insights as well.
Where – Hinckley, OH
When – Friday 9/22 from 6-8 PM
Love Exchange – $50/person
How to Register – Space is limited (we have TWO spots left), so please use the contact form below to sign up. I will send you a PayPal link to complete your registration if space is still available.
Sending love your way!
The eclipse energies from August created big shifts that may just be coming clear now. The image I saw about this was of the earth getting shaken, so that the sand shifted revealing an old, rusty structure. The message that came through was that we have been standing on ground that holds some outmoded patterns that are now ready to be cleared out. This can feel pretty intense. Imagine what it feels like to be standing on a sandy beach and suddenly have all the sand move to reveal you are standing on a rusty piece of metal! There may be confusion, as it isn’t always easy to figure out what the pattern is connected to. It is a good shift though, as sand is not the most stable of substances. We are clearing away to make more space for the authentic self to shine through! To support the process, listen to what your heart says. Take good care of yourself and get some help sorting through the debris if you need to! I also did a recording for September to get some guidance on the best way to work with the energies this month. A call for gentleness and patience seems to be in order. You can listen the recording here (about 13 minutes long): September 2017 Monthly Inspiration
September Opportunities to Connect
Ohio Spiritual Toolkit Workshop 9/10 – This event is full! Excited to see those of you who signed up next week!
Ohio Fall Equinox Gathering 9/22 6-9 PM – Join us in Hinckley, OH for a chance to gather and honor the changing of the seasons and receive spiritual guidance for the season ahead. We will be connecting with an energy center of Mother Earth connected to the kidney meridian to help us support the process of releasing the old structures (the rusty metal I mentioned above). Reiki Master Neil Kopchak will also be joining us to share gentle Reiki balancing while we work with the kidney meridian energies. We will finish with a sacred fire ceremony where we will be releasing any resentment and embracing forgiveness, as well as setting clear intentions for what we wish to manifest going forward. Love Exchange: $75/person or $65/person when you register with a friend.
Totem Pole Readings 20% off ($80 instead of $100) – In the spring, we started using this type of reading to help people connect with the archetypal energies that are going to be most helpful for them in this new nine-year cycle. It is incredibly powerful and a much-needed tool, as we navigate this transformational time. The reading was created by Ted Andrews and shared in the book Animal Totem Tarot by Leeza Robertson. Why I love this reading so much is because it helps you understand what is going on at your soil and with each of the chakra areas, so that you can work with the energies that will help you thrive, and avoid approaches that may no longer be appropriate for you. Readings are approximately an hour and will include: Identification of the animal allies and major arcana/archetypes that will be active for you, interpretation of how you can work with these energies, and an understanding of the overall theme you will be working with for this new cycle. You can use the contact form below to schedule! Sessions can be done in person (Ohio only) or by phone.
Crossroads Coaching Scholarship Fund
Thank you to those who generously sent love offerings since I have started this Fund! I have been able to help several people who really needed to work with me, but didn’t have the resources available to do so, while still meeting my own financial needs. I have had two recommendations for people who could use Scholarship support. One is a long-time elderly caregiver who is going through financial hardship and another is a mom of a child with Down syndrome. If you would like to help me help them, you can make a love offering at the link below.
Thank You Gift – This month’s gift recording takes you through my experience in the Black Hills area of South Dakota out on the prairie at sunrise on the morning of the Eclipse. It was an incredibly powerful experience that I am excited to share with all of you! You will be sent the link for the gift recording when you make a love offering of any amount.

One of the important tools I’ve used throughout my spiritual journey is energy healing. When I went through my spiritual awakening, I had virtually no energy boundaries and was suffering with anxiety all the time. I met a woman at an herb store who offered a type of energy treatment called Polarity Therapy. I started working with her and it was life changing! She helped me to get back into my body and to get grounded. Those of us who are sensitive have a tendency to pull our spirits up out of our bodies when we feel threatened. This sounds like it might help since you aren’t in the body to feel what is happening to it, but the problem is it is like being up in the top of a tree during a windstorm! You end up desperately clinging to the branches, trying not to be thrown out of the tree. Anyone who has spent any time in the woods during a storm knows that you are safest on the ground, close to the Earth when the wind starts blowing. This is true for us as well. Being grounded and connected to our body is the way to be at peace.
One of the modalities I learned over the years was a Japanese system called Reiki. It involves allowing healing energy to flow through the practitioner’s hands into the body of the person who is receiving the healing. I went through the full level of training with Reiki and am a Reiki Master. As part of my own healing, I have also learned many other techniques from different energy healing modalities, as well as techniques used in the shamanic traditions to restore balance and healing to the energy system which benefits the whole person.
The sessions I offer are typically 60- 90 minutes and involves a mixture of energy balancing and intuitive insight and guidance. I have some time available for these types of sessions this month in Hinckley, Ohio. The rate is normally $100/per 60-90 minute session, but this month you can participate for $85. The following session times are available this month:
Tuesdays 3/14 and 3/21 – Evening time slot
Thursdays 3/16 or 3/23 – Evening time slot
Fridays 3/17 or 3/24 – afternoon time slot
