The Direct Path to Health

The Chinese Image means – Master of One’s Own Destiny

Health is not expensive or about spending money. Health begins with our mindset.

Our nature is health. Disease, for the most part, is a byproduct of how we think, act, listen, and live our life. I learned this by living and teaching it for the past 52 years after I was given a dire diagnosis.

To stay healthy, we begin by a focus on thinking positive thoughts aligned with our health and happiness. Yes, happiness is a key component of health.

Especially through dark times, it is important to engage in self-love and self-care and stay positive to maintain wellness. Negativity is against us and life and negates possibilities instead of seeking and living them completely.

We are the ones responsible for our health and life. Somehow that has been missed with belief in modern medicine and too often we do not take that responsibility seriously.

We can prevent and/or can come back to health with action and self-awareness, knowledge, and wisdom. Drugs and surgery are for when it has gone too far and we need this help instead of popping pills for everything,

To live aligned with us and health is key. To learn natural ways that do not poison us and break us down more is important as well. Health is our nature, so the first question is how do we support our nature?

I was very sickly and in constant pain in several areas of my body for years by the age of fifteen. Our family doctor told me that I will not live long and will continue to suffer and break down quickly. When I tell this story people say that was terrible for the doctor to say to a teen or anyone. I am grateful every day as it is what inspired me to research and change.

I had a choice, to feel a victim and live out the path I was on and this diagnosis, or to wake up and choose again and be my own medicine and figure out how to change everything. I woke up and consciously chose life and health.

My father was chronically critically ill and dying at 43, and our family was doctor and drug dependent even though my mom read about and was raised with natural remedies. The focus was not healing, meaning becoming whole, it was more about feeling a little better and living another day or year.

That did not work for me. Already I did not like pharmaceuticals, both over the counter and prescription. I felt most of them made me feel worse and did not help the healing process.

When the doctor told me, I was following in my father’s footsteps health-wise, I decided to change that and forge my own path to health. I had no doubt this was possible because inside I knew that we did not have to be sick and in pain and I was willing to make any changes and learn what it would take to heal all the way.

It began with the mindset. I claimed perfect health and chose to live a long healthy life. Rejecting the doctor and his diagnosis was the first step.

Rejecting the lifestyle pattern of disease was next, and also releasing the belief that I was stuck in my family’s genetic patterns of sickness. I felt like I was living in an alternate reality of continuous deteriorating health and the mindset that reinforced that and I did not believe that was necessary.

Breaking family patterns was most important and began while living at home in the world of constant sickness and abundant drugs to keep people alive.

Drugs may be a way to keep people alive, but I felt they were also what killed people, and broke down the body and did not support regaining health.

I began researching nutrition and eating healthy whole food and stopped eating food with preservatives, canned veggies, and frozen entrees, and all of what is fake food to me.

I dressed for the weather unlike most teens, and also stayed away from people who were sick. I also stayed home when I was beginning to get sick to rest and build immunity and health, instead of waiting until I was so sick I was out for weeks, as I had been. I quickly began to rebuild my mind and body and spirit too.

Self-care did not cost me anything, it saved me stress and loss on all levels. It was a reclaiming of me and a daily choice to be my own advocate and caregiver.

When we tap into our innate intelligence aligned with health and our true nature of what supports us, we find great ways to live and be healthy.

Letting go of negativity is also key. Seeing life with a cup half full or overflowing is also important to help us reach the level of health that makes us whole and happy.

Hearing about how Jesus healed people inspired me and gave me hope and direction. I listened to the nuances of what was being taught in the readings in church and decided to learn how to discover and live these in my life too.

I have a calling to live and teach Be The Medicine. The information here is a result of reading thousands of books and study with over 100 teachers, healers, masters of spiritual traditions, and medical doctors and formal degrees in nutrition and psychology.

These many years of living it, and growing through my journey and offering healing support to others, and teaching it to people of all ages and walks of life have offered tremendous experience and great results in these many years.

PREVENTION AND SELF-CARE ARE EASIER.

When someone says that it is hard to make healthy changes in their life, I wonder how easy it is to be sick, in hospitals, in pain, and lose everything to medical costs, or loss of freedom because of living broken down in institutions, or even dying young? Our body tolerates a lot as it breaks down. Pay attention at earlier signs of problems. It’s good to nourish and nurture us and enjoy a healthier life. Janet StraightArrowBe The Medicine

TODAY. Fast forward fifty-two years from that dire diagnosis, I am still healthy and happy and employing wisdom and self-care. I did not have health insurance for over two decades during the years that many adults break down and are on a lot of drugs and getting tests and surgeries.

I took responsibility and watched and learned how to heal anything that seemed to be breaking down with nutrition and energy medicine and self-care and learned more and developed many ways we can Be The Medicine for ourselves.

I studied what breaks us down on every level so I can help myself and all people stop what hurts and live what helps us.

At 65, my Medicare physical revealed perfect levels in all areas of bloodwork including sugar and immunity, and my blood pressure was 120/80 too. I took no drugs or flu or pneumonia shots. The only thing that came up was that I was overweight and working on losing it.

A year later I am eating less, exercising more, and have abundant energy and health. Whole foods, some supplements a few times a week, and continued support for my mind and emotions to stay aware, loving and positive.

For generations, we have accepted that we all have to break down and get sick. That is not true. We are the owners and operators of this body which was designed for health. There is no need to accept breakdown. It takes awareness and effort to choose what supports us and let go of what tears us down on all levels.

Health saves us money and offers us an abundantly happy life. We begin with the choice, education, staying awake, paying attention, taking action, and learn and live to maintain a healthy body and life. We are worth it.

Natural healing is not weird, it is blessedly normal when we walk this walk of reality. Medicine can also be a gift to us, it is important to know how to choose and make choices all along the way.

Always in Love,

Janet StraightArrow

Desire, Determination, Discipline

 Desire, Determination, Discipline.

Dear Friends,
Waking up takes all of the above, as does achieving anything in our lives. There are no shortcuts and yet there is a direct path.

I have been teaching people that we live in a half and half world, and its time to go all the way. It is important to focus on what we want and explore all of the possibilities.

We begin by letting go of resistance, fear, fitting in, worry, blame, judgment, and complaining. These are all interfering with our brilliance and becoming who we are.

Instead of focusing on the “not”, focus on what you want.

It is not hard unless your focus is the interference or negativity. When we are on the path it opens as we walk it.

As we focus on the positive we find flow with our nature. We are learning creatures inspired by growth and accomplishment.

This last quarter I decided it was time to bring my body back to its best size and strength. The photo above is me with my trainer Brianna.
Working with a specialist in what we want to achieve opens the path.

I have also signed up for yoga classes 3x a week. Having practiced yoga for most of the past 37 years I want to deepen my practice and have been enjoying the mind, body, and spiritual benefits of working myself in these ways. These classes offer deep experiences and consistency. Outdoor walking, indoor bike, and rowing all offer cardio.

The same determination I used to achieve health and awakening has enhanced exercise and strength and is fun!

Be willing to do what it takes in whatever you decide to pursue this coming year. No excuses, just go for it.

As you focus on what you want to learn or achieve the path will show itself each day. Listen to your positive inner voice. The negative one is not you and will sidetrack you.

Ask yourself what is the best course to follow? When I decided all I wanted to accomplish; the best food, exercise, where, and with who unfolded.

Be clear in your intent and explore your highest possibilities. Let go of; any doubt, only going half way, and stop focusing on failure.

Where we focus we create. Take the time these next days before the New Moon this coming weekend to a vision where you want to explore and achieve next, listen and allow the plan to unfold.
Join us for the Soul Connection Class below and take all of this into profound and direct experience.

Enjoy the Journey,
Janet StraightArrow

Be The Medicine Now

Winter Solstice Full Moon 12/23/18

The truth is we are sitting on a gold mine of wisdom, intelligence and love. It is within us and has been all along. We are in physical and emotional pain and dis-ease because we have been separated from us and one another expecting the impossible and a poor substitution.

We are the medicine for ourselves and the world. Each person has enough energy, intelligence and clarity to be a fulfilled, purposeful, citizen. So many are lost and confused all of their lives looking for fulfillment and truth outside in a crazy sick world.

Walking this walk for fifty-one years, since a teen, has been exciting and never boring. Overcoming the illusions of the world, family, and nuances in everything has been enlightening. I researched and experienced traditions from around the world, not to find a new religion or way but to find one that feels true and fits all.

I always felt we are one human race, and that religion and culture separate us with beliefs that one is better than another. I love diversity and I also love the beauty of learning and living and loving as one humanity.

The more I looked and traveled and explored the more I saw the similarity in all traditions that were helpful and hurtful for us to be happy, healthy and whole. There is big business in keeping us down and out rather than together and whole.

The wisdom of oneness captured me as a child, and I wanted to find the truth of the scriptures instead of confused with conflicting lies. I explored beliefs and fears whose purpose seemed to be to keep us in line with something else, hoping and guessing, and not finding satisfying answers, instead of safe and secure knowing loving and being happy and healthy inside.

Learning to trust us, and have valid authority, made sense to me, instead of focusing on some men or women in the sky, who are supposed to save us. There is a higher power, but it Is not separate, it is within us all of the time. Separation is the illusion that keeps us insecure and in fear. All one, is a pulling us together individually and collectively, instead of us falling apart living in pieces instead of wholeness.

In all of these years, I discovered the truth, that we are whole beings of infinite possibility. We read and hear the higher truths, and question them, as the way they are interpreted do not build our strong foundation of being, and do not really access true reality. As amazing humans, we continually give our authority, awareness and focus to something else that does not love or support us.

Living to love and support us is everything. Waiting for someone else to give us what we have inside all the time, and where it truly resides, keeps us wanting and waiting and very unhappy. No one can give us the best and the most aligned truth and unconditional acceptance and love, except us. If they can, it’s to match us not fill in the blanks or missing pieces.

I have learned that the reason we can come back to us and heal is that the soul is always whole, this solid connection to us signals us in many ways each day to bring us home to our wholeness. At the core, we are strong and healthy and wise. We have been trained to feel weak and subject to other than us, which keep us on shaking ground all the time.

When we learn to access our greatest gifts and love we find a true passion and connection to self, divine, life and everyone.

Learning to awaken our greatest intelligence and love inside, and rebel to what separates and does not support us is key. To be of service, we need to live that strong core of what we want to offer to others easily. It has only been in the last century and half-century that humans were seen as more than just bodies. Our mind, emotions, spirit and souls have been explored and studied as valued and valid in the scheme of our lives.

All one makes sense. To separate us into parts keeps us disempowered and scared to be. As we come to wholeness we can bring all of us together and feel happy, healthy and free.

Quote of the week. “The ego says I know with emotion and defense. The soul says I know with gentle confidence.”Janet StraightArrow

Free to Be. What does Being a Responsible Person and Healer Mean?

In our co-dependent society and world, we live off balance by being responsible for others and by following the expectations of family, culture, and misaligned beliefs. This has made the word responsible, a word to be avoided, as we know that we cannot and should not take on what is for others to do and be for themselves.

Each person is responsible for themselves and that truly makes life infinitely easier on all of us, because it actually works. Instead of blaming someone else or expecting others to do or be for us we learn to make our own choices and look inside to see what we can change to create the life, health, and the relationships we want.

Once we stop looking outside of us for everything, we begin to learn to see the patterns and purpose within. It is exhausting for everyone when we use our energy and awareness to try to “fix” others. A focus of responsible solutions allows us to find causes and change the effects.

I was well trained in my healing studies to do it for, or heal others, and then was later told that the client-patient was the healer of themselves. Well, that was all well and good, but no one was trained in this personally or professionally.

Since my focus for myself was to Be The Medicine and learn how to live and heal and be free to be my best self I was on board with that. I took the time and focus for several years to discover all the ways to assist others to be the healer of themselves. I then developed the most refined ways to accomplish this with many tools and teachings that empower each person to heal themselves.

I also studied all the ways on many levels of being that we co-create disease and pain, and avoid the things that help us so we do not receive the fullness of health and healing. Be The Medicine and my individual work and pieces of training are all focused on realigning you with your best life and perfect health.

Being a pioneer for decades, it was helpful that I was comfortable not following the rules of others that did not seem to lead to solutions and healing. As I studied and practiced with others and myself, I sorted out what worked and what did not and also cleaned out the pieces that interfered or blocked us. There are so many beliefs, fears, and limits to healing, it is ridiculous when we are each a natural healer of us.

I also discovered that when I was the one who took full responsibility as “the healer” for others, I took on some of the problems and had to heal myself from what I was helping others with. I almost burned out by doing healing the way it was “expected” to be done. One day I just quit that way altogether and found a balance that worked.

All of my focus is on sharing energy, time, and teachings to help people help and heal themselves as a major focus of our work together. Being co-creative and giving people their responsibility made all the difference for everyone.

It is a very different paradigm and it makes sense and works which makes it very rewarding for everyone. Healing and being us is co-creative. We can assist others as long as we allow them to choose and manifest on their own. Receiving support of a trained healer allows them to share their gifts and work together with you for your goals.
It is always exciting for me to watch people grow and change within themselves, their life, relationships, work, and health immediately through our private work together. Are you ready to learn how to be responsible for you in ways that make your life and health work infinitely better?

How to Flunk Co-Dependence

 

I am okay, only if you are okay, that is a fallacy.” Janet StraightArrow

In this world of people pleasing, we hurt everyone. No one is happy when they are living lies and trying to figure out how to contort themselves to fit into beliefs and expectations that might not even exist.

Being independent, then interdependent, allow us to find perspective and truth and a better way to live. First, know who you are and feel safe and true to you. We never find peace and safety in trying to fit something outside of us first.

Breaking the roles and rules of challenging childhoods we discover short breaths and bursts of freedom to be us. We explore our authenticity and even begin the know what that is.

We cannot be authentic when we try to fit in. When we are who we are we discover matching people and energy and also discover healthy boundaries.

I will admit I sometimes revert to want to follow what pleases others. Then I feel the inner pull to listen to me and stop before I fall into the abyss of co-dependence.

Co-dependence is a way to improperly take responsibility for someone else. We make excuses and list reasons for their or our inability to be and do what is correct and then try to fill in.

People who think I am nice will be fooled when they try seducing me to take care of them, at my or others, and especially their, expense, and I do not relent.

Be Who You Are

JUST SAY NO, OR YES, WHEN APPROPRIATE.

We do not speak our truth when we are afraid someone will leave us physically or emotionally when they know how we feel and what is important for us.

This is where the abandonment begins, with us, when we do not live our true self and hide it from us and everyone else.

The world is such a mess of illusion and lies and it all begins with each one of us not allowing what is true to be known to us first in our lives.

Take a tremendous risk and quiet your mind to discover what your inner self who is infinitely wise, has to say about you, and your relationships and life.

The loud and fearful thoughts are the lies, they are the ones that drowned out the true wisdom we always have.

As we begin to listen to us we are safer than we have ever been. Relationships will change or leave or return depending on where we all are.

Being real allows true love and care for all and us that we can enjoy and count on. If we are only loved for what we can do for another then we are lost.

Find you, find true, allow that process of being true to you. When we are true to ourselves only then can we be true to another or offer valuable service that uplifts all.

Enjoy the Journey,

Janet StraightArrow

Change is Happening Suffering is Optional

“Peace and progress come easily when we let go of control and allow co-creative flow.”Janet StraightArrow

This is a summer of change. Two major eclipses, several retrograde planets, with transformative Pluto, and lightning bolt change Uranus, connecting to more planets, makes is a holy mess of change. If you are not affected, you are not paying attention. The world and her people are moving and grooving and its’ not always fun.

 Instead of saying I don’t like change and trying to avoid, deny, or resist it in any way, know that change is continual. We cannot hold onto the earth in an earthquake, or to water in a raging river, or to the air in a storm, or stop a fire when things are incinerated. These are natural extremes of the elements and relate to changes in our life.

Being caught in the drama of trying to control everything we are lost in the disaster. As we release expectations and control there is a clear space to process what happened and choose a new life that works.

What causes continued suffering is how we deal with change. Change is constant and how we grow and how we live every day. What we can be responsible for is how we live with it, how we see opportunities instead of just problems, and how we decide to move forward.

When something is over, like in natural extremes above, it’s over. It is what do we make of the rubble, or what is left, that determines how we can begin again.

 After death, there is always rebirth, and new life unfolds. Holding onto dying pieces does not build a new life. Allowing new elements to be revealed opens up new options and life to grow again.

We may want to control everything and make the world conform to our wishes. We are not the only ones involved. It is a co-creative universe and many other people and situations are a part of the co-creation. Doing our part and figuring it out is where the answers lie.

We are only stuck when our thinking is stuck, and we do not want to change, or when we cannot see beyond the change and are afraid. Stuck is being paralyzed in some ways and the need to stay in fear until we figure it out causes great suffering for and to us.

Be free to know that change is normal and when the fear clears there is a new path opened to explore and live that just may be where we were heading all along.

Change helps us with needed course corrections. Be curious instead of mad and see where life can be better than you imagined.

Enjoy the Journey,

Janet StraightArrow

A Unique Spiritual Journey

StraightArrow Walking

 WHAT DO a Racecar Driver, Realtor, Mom, Sailboat Captain, Fashion Model, Shaman, Entrepreneur, Writer, Reiki Master, Astrologer, Medical Intuitive, Lifelong student, Loving Teacher, and Spiritual Guide have in common? Me. It has been a full, terrible, wonderful, challenging, and exciting life.

Fifty-one years ago our family doctor said I would not live long. In these years I have faced death and rebirth on many levels each decade and I am still walking. Living our purpose is not often easy, it is challenging, and can be fun! How did I get here and what motivated me to develop Be The Medicine? A little bit more of my story with love. Janet StraightArrow

After living in many worlds consciously unfolding for over six decades, I feel great compassion for all of us and have a comfortable understanding of the journey of life, relationships, love, success, spiritual awakening, and living it in our everyday world.

From the time I was a child I had deep questions and lived the answers even when they did not agree with what I was taught in the family and culture. Inspired by sacred teachings, I knew there was so much more to life and health than was commonly known. I also saw that the world and her people were confused and hurting unnecessarily, and I wanted to find the clear truth, live it, and teach others too.

Very sensitive and aware and yet unafraid to explore, living true to me made all of the difference. Amidst the challenges, there were great friends, guides, and teachers. There were also times I was an outcast and that was not easy but I always wanted to be true to me and the values that were important to me.

CONSTANT TRAUMA. I grew up living on the edge of life and death. My father was in and out of critical condition from before I was born and we did not know if he would be alive any night, or morning, many days, weeks, and months each year. I was the oldest of three and my mother’s right hand in caring for the house and children and dad when he was home. He died in a very worn out body at the young age of forty-eight.

CHOOSING AGAIN. In 1967, when I was fifteen, our family doctor told me I would not live as long as my father did and that made me question everything and changed my life. I was very sickly in similar ways and decided then and there that I was going to live a long, healthy, happy life and figure it out which started the journey to Be The Medicine.

SHARING THE JOURNEY I organically began teaching mothers how to heal and assist their families with health and wellness and behavior problems in the later 1970’s with nutrition, whole foods, and natural methods as my first healing business.

TAKING RISKS. In those same years, I raced Porsches with my husband on Watkins Glen, Pocono, Lime Rock, and Bridgehampton Road Racing tracks on weekends for six years. This gave me many opportunities to face life and death and test myself as I  developed fine-tuned awareness, focus, and mindfulness as we were racing with many other cars at top speeds vying for the same place. It was the same courage it took to to step into a fireproof suit and car that later took to accept and live the unlikely life as a Shaman, Healer, and Sage.

During that period of my life, I also birthed two babies, planted gardens, and studied yoga and meditation, astrology, deeper healing, and more on whole foods cooking and eating. I was working very steadily to heal myself of two issues that would not subside no matter what I did. In the two weeks after my marital separation, those problems went away totally and opened up new doorways in the study of the mind-body connection. Many of the studies and methods I explored are popular now and were not accepted by many then. When I wanted to bridge my nutrition with a psychology degree I met great resistance in college.

By the late-eighties, I had divorced, completed another degree, and began my real estate career while raising my daughters and studying and practicing living spirituality and healing. None of this journey was easy and yet I followed my inner leading each step of the way and trusted the process.

In 1992 I discovered quite by surprise, my calling as a Shaman by a Shaman, I did not believe him and took it under advisement, and from this time on my life and expanded realities opened up. There has always been a deeper calling and understanding of many traditions that are Universal and not specific to one tradition. This makes it relevant to all.

Some of my greatest awakening experiences and studies came during those years and I began teaching Shamanism and Reiki and life’s wisdom to many as I sold homes and assisted people on their journey as homeowners. Living spirituality in all aspects of work and life was a focus I explored.

In 1999 I went to working full-time in healing and teaching and writing. I had support staff so I could continue to explore even more.  Each time I opened to some big answer, I found another missing piece or question. I asked higher wisdom for the answer and followed where that led me.

I was continuing to explore, learn and heal and was led to study and do private work with renowned teachers, healers, Shamans, Gurus, Masters and many others in many disciplines around the world. Each step awakened me more and gave me more pieces to the puzzle looking for complete health, spiritual mastery, and living it now. It has been a wild ride, full of love and challenges at every turn, and choosing love, happiness, and health all the way.

I could have stopped at any point to build a larger business and program where I was, and yet I knew my purpose and the greater gifts to be shared required me to continue to study and find complete answers as I taught and healed. It was the discovery of Siberian Shamanism and the highest teachings from the far east that brought all of it together for me. Each piece leading up to that was important and I finally found completion.

GREAT LOSS AWAKENS. In late March of 2008, I felt I was ready to bring the wholeness of Be The Medicine out. In meditation one night I heard, “You have more to heal first.” April 1, my youngest daughter Lisa died unexpectedly in half an hour. There was no doubt many things had to be put on hold.

Shattered, I deepened the journey by living through that life-changing trauma, and so many more that followed close behind. I felt machine gunned full of bullet holes and was still walking. Back at square one, I lived in the tender space where many clients join me looking for help, which helped me refine the work even more. I saw the work I had developed with new eyes and a heart that was broken open, yet again. I was grateful for all the wisdom and tools I gathered prior to this as I was able to survive through those difficult times and focused on thriving in love and grace.

In 2009 The year after Lisa died and the economy crashed I learned what it meant to have no money. People say that and still have a house, car, and regular income and that was not my experience. My astrology said this would happen, and I did not want to believe it. I began working when I was ten years old and I was always able to provide for myself by working hard and smart.

When I found myself down to my last few dollars, I was humbled beyond belief. I heard a voice say, “There will be no more income for six weeks, figure it out.” Not many people knew of my struggles and I kept walking. At the razor’s edge, I surrendered to my higher self, listened, followed, and built my life and money back up again.

During the past ten years since Lisa died, this deep journey was continual death and rebirth in various ways. The result was learning that the impossible is possible when we live from our high self and divine nature. I learned to heal body, mind, emotions, spirit, and soul in ways I always somehow knew was possible and rarely achieved as I continued to share my findings with others each day.

Innocence prevails as I am always awed and surprised and grateful for each subtle and huge awakening, becoming and healing, and encourage the same in everyone. I accepted my agreement to be tested and challenged and live great loss to discover great gains that would assist many over generations with Be The Medicine. After being stripped to the hollow bone on so many levels, life is now new and clear and fun. Love is all there is in real ways.

CHOP WOOD CARRY WATER The last big piece of the puzzle came in 2015 when my oldest daughter asked me to bring my real estate skills and wisdom to help her build her business in Title Insurance. Coming out of a very deep spiritual space and back into working in the world part-time has been another rebirthing experience allowing me to bring all of my pieces back together.

Living spiritually in a material world became natural to me again. This experience was my next awakening journey, and quite complete. I have been working with her and am excited to interact with people in different roles as I continue to work with individuals and groups and write and develop the wholeness and more clearly defined pieces of Be The Medicine.

It has been exciting to witness and share my daughters work watching her live as a conscious business owner. Blending both worlds has brought me new perspectives and understandings that have informed the work of Be The Medicine and informed me of where the population is and what people are looking for and need.

Wisdom comes from living it wherever our life takes us. Being spiritual is integrated with everything and makes life better. Even when we feel like things are over, life offers us new beginnings.

2018 NEW BEGINNING For over three decades I have been leading thousands of people of all ages in healing and spiritual awakening and living it. Training healers and guiding them to awaken their innate gifts have also been an important focus. It is always exciting for me to see past students sharing their special offerings with the world.

The purpose of this writing is to let people know this is a lifelong journey for me and also to encourage you to appreciate that it is for all of us. My search for unity and oneness brought all of the pieces together after over a decade of integration and refinement as I continued to work with many.

This summer I am rebuilding the foundation and structures for several levels of the work-adventure. Refreshing my website and updating social media too. I am available for private sessions all summer, on Skype, phone or in-person. It is a good time for ongoing support on your journey as we have amazing transformational astrology focusing us and encouraging rebirth and renewed life aligned with our highest self and truth unfolding for all of us into September

IT IS ALL ABOUT US BEING US. Each one of us has our own experience and I love to assist people to discover, deepen, and love their way through their unique journey. It is exciting to watch and participate as we are all waking up to higher possibilities and realities. Letting go of the world to live in it has been quite the trip. Discovering the highest truth and deepest love and translating it into simple, logical, common sense practices and ways has been a daily journey knowing this is my life purpose.

Be The Medicine is all about you being you in all of your brilliance, wisdom, and purpose. Healing what keeps us from this is the journey, as we embrace our true essence and live it.

Learning to live from our center and truth is exciting. Discovering we already have inner peace and deep love is awaiting our discovery. Check out our sessions and testimonials and all pages on the website and enjoy our Facebook pages for daily inspiration. The best is yet to be. If you feel called to work with me reach out and let’s find a way that works and begin.

Look for new Facebook live streaming and many offerings along the way. Find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin.

Always in Love.

Blessings and enjoy your Journey,
