Last year was a busy year for so many of us, including me! I was healing and building up strength in my legs after a fall. I also went back to beautiful Montana in July to continue CCT™ Teacher Training. Once I got back I realized that things needed to change. I decided to move. I started looking at apartments. There were many options and yet deep down I knew what I wanted. The question was ‘How do I get from here to there?’ I worked with my clear, and conscious intentions about what I wanted and ‎CCT™ Soul Charts which are powerful Mandala charts infused with a lovely CCT™home vibration. Some of my intentions were :

‘New Carpet, New appliances, lots of light, private entry, Affordable’….and so on.

I did the chart in late July/early August and by the end of August I had found my place. And let me share with you how ‎CCT™ worked its magic! All of the carpet, flooring, and appliances were replaced. Everything was brand new! It is a private entry corner apartment which means I have an extra window in the kitchen. Lots of lovely sunlight,…AND it was in the community I wanted to live in. It was everything I wanted and so much more!  All of my intentions had manifested. It was like I had placed an order, and the Universe had guided me to this place. I was thrilled and excited to witness how quickly my apartment came forth.

When we get really clear about what we want, set the intention(s) and truly surrender, amazing things unravel and happen for you. And CCT™ is the magic sauce!

I also decided about halfway through the year that I wanted to travel to India again. I’ve done annual trips to India for many years now, but it had been 3 years since I had been back. A lot had happened in those 3 years. I made a decision to go down to part time at my corporate job, so that I could pursue my passion to become a Coach to others. I immersed myself in learning about CCT™, became an Advanced Practitioner, a CCT™ Level 3 Teacher and a student of a 2 year CCT™ study program that allowed me to become a Crystalline Light Worker and a Crystalline Earth Advocate.  It’s given me so much, in so many ways!

My itinerary to India was very similar to prior years – close to 4 weeks at an Ayurvedic Institute, and about a week and a half in an Ashram in Southern India. This trip, however, was very different than all of my other ones.   I didn’t consciously approach the trip thinking or hoping it would be different. I was open and just went with the intention of resting, relaxing, and rejuvenating.  


What I didn’t realize was that I inherently brought in all my CCT™ tools into everything I did or experienced. Whether that was choosing how I wanted to experience my travel to and from India, getting my massages, my yoga classes, meditating, walking, meeting & interacting with others, or just soaking up the beautiful vibrations at the Ashram, I experienced everything at a much deeper level that felt very special and sacred.

I used my tools (‎CCT™ Soul Charts, ‎Healing the Earth, Personal Healing sessions and ‎Setting up my energy fields) throughout my trip, observing, and witnessing things with a very different lens compared to past trips.   I found my body LOVING and really CONNECTING to the massages.  I felt like I was honoring and taking care of myself on so many levels.  Diet, exercise, rest, massage, walking, and yoga.  When we honor our bodies, the temple of our soul, we acknowledge its purpose, its power, and significance. THAT is empowering.

The last week of my trip was spent at Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram.  As I sat there, during one of the morning prayers, I experienced something so unique.  I dropped into my heart. I connected so deeply with the vibrations and peace around me, and subsequently within myself.  It felt extremely special, calm, joyful and sacred.  My soul felt full, a deep contentment, and I felt at peace.  Words can’t adequately describe how I felt and I’m not sure I even understand the depth of my experiences and its effect on me.  This is one of those life changing experiences that will stay with me forever.

Why am I sharing all of this?

Because it was a transforming experience for me. So much of our growth and/or transformation comes from what we are ready to let go of and heal, and then subsequently open up to and bring into our lives (aka Transformation). CCT™ is a phenomenal energy healing modality that works with you, like a collaborative partner, side by side, encouraging, supporting, empowering and allowing you to be the BEST you!   What’s especially cool about it is that you get to decide what and how much you want to transform. Sometimes we wonder how much we are evolving or whether we are at all. And then something shifts, and an ordinary experience becomes extraordinary. No expectations…just surrendering to that experience and all it has to offer. That makes life feel so special and makes you smile….from your heart.

Ups and downs in life are inevitable. Why not empower yourself with tools that that allow you to choose how you navigate on your personal journey? The one thing I can confidently say about CCT™ is that it brings you back to YOU. Your joy, your wisdom, your love.  All thing begins and end with you.   It’s a beautiful process of heightened self-awareness and inner growth that I’ve loved and continue to love. And I’d love to share it with you.

If you are interested in learning more about CCT™, I am offering several classes in the next few months. I also offer Coffee Shop sessions – you pick an area of your life that just isn’t budging or shifting, create powerful intentions, and I work with CCT™ soul charts to shift what you are ready to let go of to bring in what your heart desires…we then chat over a cup of coffee and I share what information came through. It’s fun, light, informative, and transformational. Join me 🙂

Wishing you a radiant & light filled 2015!

Solstice Reflections

Today, June 20th makes 6 months exactly, since I fell and broke my leg.  It was a rainy morning on Friday, December 20th (1 day before the Winter Solstice). It was a quick slip and fall. As I lay on the ground, in pain and half crying, the only thought in my head was ‘how will I travel to India in 5 days?’

Upon reaching the hospital and several x-rays later I realized there was not going to be a trip.  I had a Pilon fracture (where both the tibia and fibula break close to the ankle) and had an upcoming surgery instead…well 2 to be exact.  The next 2 weeks were a blur as I went through both surgeries and recovery.

At the time I couldn’t understand what had happened. Questions were running through my head. ‘Why me? What did I do to deserve this? How could this have happened?’ Those of you who know me know that I’m always looking for the meaning or significance behind things that happen. What was the significance behind my fall? I was upset, frustrated, angry and in A LOT of pain. This was a major setback. I was supposed to be on a plane to India, to get away from the cold wintry weather and spend time with my parents and sister. But instead I had a long road of recovery ahead of me, and I had no idea what that would entail.winter

Over the next several months I went through many emotions and mental states. I’m not going to lie. It was tough, painful and frustrating with lots of questions and emotions. So many new experiences – learning to depend on others for help, realizing I didn’t have the energy level to do what I wanted to, lots of sleep and naps, countless side effects from the meds, slow moving days …staring out the window as the snow fell and the wind howled under grey, cloudy, bitter cold days.

After 5 weeks my cast came off. I remember staring at my leg at the surgeon’s office – swollen foot and leg with dry, peeling, and scarred skin. It looked like an alien that was somehow attached to my body. ‘Where was my leg?’ I fought back tears. They put me into a boot and I started PT. I really thought getting back on my feet was going to be simple and easy. I was in for a surprise. That’s when the tough work really began, on so many levels. The challenge was not only for my body but also my mind as I retrained my foot and leg (amidst the swelling and scarring) to regain its flexibility, strength and mobility. I remember many PT visits where my mind would tell my foot to move or my toes to curl, and my foot would barely move. It just wouldn’t listen. It was like a struggle between my mind and my leg/foot. That feeling is inexplicable. Tears flowed down my face. 45 minutes of PT felt like I had been running for miles. I was exhausted. I wondered, will I ever be able to stand or walk again? After a few tough and frustrating visits I started to notice some improvement. My heart swelled with pride, joy and accomplishment. I was excited and happy to see progress. I was nurturing my precious leg back to health.

As I watched my leg/foot improve – my mindset shifted. I began feeling grateful….for so many things. Little things. My toes curling (back and forth) slowly but surely. My foot increasing its range of motion. Decreasing numbness and that prickly sleepy feeling. I never realized or appreciated the work our human body does, on its own.   Yes, I remember taking Biology class but never did I really sit back and appreciate how amazing the human body is. All our systems working together doing what they are supposed to when it’s time to do it, with rarely any interference from us.

Have you ever thought about the work your legs do? Your toes? The ball of your foot, the heel? They hold us up, transport us from one place to another, hold our weight, allow us to balance, dance, stand on our tippy toes, exercise, run – so many things. And do we really think about everything they do, not just from an external point of view but the internal workings? The tendons, muscles, bones, arteries, veins…all of it. No. I know I didn’t. All I knew was if I wanted to go from my bedroom to the kitchen I would get up and start walking. I took it all for granted.

The fall and recovery time gave me a lot of time to reflect, slow down, and become more present with my body. As I look back at the sequence of events over the past 6 months everything turned out absolutely perfect. I couldn’t have planned it better.   Yes, the fall was unfortunate, tough, and inconvenient but out of it came so many beautiful, eye-opening experiences for me.

I realized how blessed I was to have family and friends that stepped forward to support me through the process. My brother who was by my side through both surgeries making all the decisions needed to ensure I was healing and comfortable. My sister in law who spent 2 months nursing me back to health, cooking for me, giving me massages, waking up in the middle of the night to give me my meds. My mother, and sister who flew back home early to step in after my sister in law left, and of course my sweet father who gave me pep talks, love and encouragement through all of it. My amazing CCT family who did countless healing sessions, Soul Charts and held space for me through my surgeries and recovery. My patient, encouraging and supportive Physical Therapist who balanced being patient and knowing when to push me. My next door neighbors who cleaned off our driveway every time it stormed so that we could get out safely for my Dr’s appointments. Friends who stopped by to keep me company and bring food. Our amazing Universe and God, who brought everything that I needed to me in Divine Right Timing …gently and so lovingly. So many acts of kindness, unconditional love, and encouragement. I was and am still humbled and in awe by this support. In addition to the gratitude piece, I realized I need to slow down and take time to smell the flowers, be more mindful, and present. And more than all of that, my love and appreciation for my body skyrocketed as it supported, healed, recovered and regained its strength. I feel so lucky and blessed.

Our lives are so busy. Mine is no different. But one thing this experience has given me is the ability to step back more consciously and take a look at how ‘busy’ I’m making myself. Slow down, relax, take time to smell the flowers and breathe in the warm, beautiful sunshine.

I was indoors for what seemed like endless months this past winter…and now that it’s warmed up beautifully outside, I’ve given myself the gift of communing with Nature, and I am LOVING every minute of it. Every opportunity I get, whether it’s sunny or cloudy out you’ll find me on my deck with an occasional glass of wine, spending time with the trees, soaking in the warm sunshine, noticing the beautiful shades of blue in the sky, experiencing the breeze through the rustling of leaves and being awestruck at how each season of our life brings something new and beautiful to us.
