New Article on Tuning Forks and Sound Healing

Hi all, I’ve just had a new article published in The Echo World Magazine. It’s about tuning forks.

Here’s the link: http://www.theechoworld.com/Magazine/magazine.html


The set I use most is a color-coded set that matches the chakras. These are weighted body tuners. You strike the weighted end and place the narrow end on the body. The sound resonates and creates a feeling of relaxation and harmony.

I’ve been using these for awhile and have had good results with them. They are especially helpful with sleep issues, stress and even pain management.


I find they help during a Reiki session to help amplify the energy. Read the article to find out more information and as always, feel free to email me if you’d like to have an in-person Reiki session or a distance session.


I hope everyone is enjoying the summer! It’s my favorite time of year.


I just went to our local Lavender farm the other day with Rog and a good friend who had never been. Is there anything better than smelling fresh cut lavender? There was a storm and a deluge which sent us running for the nearby wine tasting shop. We sat under the tin roof listening to the rain and then as it stopped, the air was filled with the most incredible scent.





New Article on Handmade Salve

I just published a new article in The Echo World magazine on how to make your own salve. I will include the link below. It’s a great product. I use it all the time and I also sell if if you want to buy some. I ship anywhere in the U.S.

I know that salve seems more like a winter product but I use it year round. It’s great for dry skin, sensitive skin and for people who just don’t want to use artificial stuff on their skin. I use Olive oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter and other totally natural ingredients. Try it, if you don’t want to buy it, it’s fun to make yourself.

Also, it’s the best thing I’ve found for tattoos. It’s soothing without being greasy. It also brings out the colors and keeps the skin soft.





I also infuse the products with Reiki energy before I sell them. It really does seem to help.

Have a wonderful week! Spring is here and well, actually, it feels more like summer now.




I’ve probably talked about this before but I am a Reiki practitioner. I got into Reiki when I was trying to heal from an autoimmune condition and I had amazing results. I ended up taking classes and over a period of four years, did all the required work for all levels including master/teacher.

I’ve just been featured in a local magazine with an article I co-wrote on Tandem Reiki with a fellow practitioner.

Check out the article here if you’d like to know more about Tandem Reiki.




You can also check out my website to see what I offer in terms of treatments and services.




Reiki is great for stress management and helping your body to heal itself. I’m posting my information below. Feel free to contact me if you’d like to know more about Reiki. I have a short document I can email you that goes over the basics. If you are in the Virginia area, I’m taking new clients so feel free to email, text or even ‘gasp’ call on the phone.


Have a wonderful week! Spring is right around the corner!






Spring is coming!

Can you feel it?


Well, technically I can’t really feel it yet because it’s still February and with my seasonal depression it is usually the end of March before I finally come out of the sluggish fuzzy brain haze that saps my energy and will.

Still, I am hopeful!


I am dreaming of warm weather. Wait, it’s not a dream because it’s 78 degrees in Virginia today. The window is open and I love it. It does feel a bit weird though. My sluggish brain is having trouble computing all this warmth. The trees outside are starting to bud and the birds are all singing.


I’m starting to remember past trips like this one to the Cape in South Africa. The memory feels vivid and happy and not as far away and muffled as it was in January.


So if you are like me, just remember that Spring is just around the corner. Be good to yourself. You are the only you you have.



Writers Block?

I have been “working” on the latest book in the Closet Door series for two years. At first I blamed it on moving to South Africa and having that fantastic view. People told me to turn my computer away from the ocean view. As if I could do such a thing…

But now we are back. First we went to New Mexico for a few months. I wanted so much to like it. I really tried. It was beautiful, just expensive. We ended up in a one room Casita which was nice but I couldn’t concentrate on writing at all.


Everyone said that it was one of the rainiest springs ever. All the wild cactus were in bloom. That was pretty spectacular. I’m from Virginia so even the rainiest weather there is still dry as hell to me. I watched as the rainstorms would end and the water would just evaporate instantly. A mist would rise up and the pavement, tables, chairs, anything outside would be completely dry again.


So the contrast from the beach to the desert was too strange and harsh.



So we came back to Virginia. I have no excuse not to write but I have not been able to write like I used to.


I am still processing my time in South Africa.


I think maybe I have just moved around too much and am having a hard time figuring out where in the world to be.


Maybe I’ll write novels again. Maybe not. I’ve been working on a Reiki One manual so that I can teach classes. It’s a different kind of writing but still writing.
