Unleash Your Brave!

Dar in Lincoln City OR edit06[1]

When I was a little girl, everything to me was scary. Leaving my house, going to the grocery store, talking to strangers, and riding the school bus for the first time at the age of 5 in 1973 (neither the bus driver nor I knew where my stop was and I was the last child on the bus!). I cried hysterically and wet my pants.

My grandma would encourage me to overcome what she considered unfounded fears (minus the devastating bus fiasco. That was kind of founded).  She taught me how to talk to her ‘harmless old lady friends’, to smile more, and to ask the ‘intimidating’ McDonald’s cashier for ketchup. I remember asking for a packet of ketchup, grabbing it, and then hiding under the table for 5 minutes after because I felt so exposed.

Grandma taught me how to be brave. My beautiful, elegant grandmother. Lena. She had cancer from the time I was born until she passed when I was 18, just before I left for college. Grandma Lena stood strong and unbroken, one diagnosis after the next. Each surgery and round of chemotherapy and radiation didn’t slow her down. Brittle and broken bones, caused to weaken from the cancer drugs, didn’t stop Grandma from bouncing back, putting on her earrings and make-up, and going to lunch with her group of supportive, loving friends.

I watched this for 18 years, this unwavering bravery to face and fight her battles, without complaints, anger, or doubt. Grandma was the center of my universe so her life left a huge impact on how I live mine.

Then, in 2005, when I was diagnosed with cancer, there was no questioning how I would approach this obstacle-with grace, strength, and perseverance just like Grandma taught me. Like Grandma, I looked ahead and continued doing what I enjoyed and found ways that would keep me focused on how to win this with unwavering bravery.  I do believe her experiences and bravery were the reason I overcame my circumstance as quickly as I did, faster than what the doctors predicted. Of course, Grandma was with me the entire test just like she was there cheering me on at McDonald’s. Grandma Lena was right by my side, encouraging me to go deep into my soul and find my brave. And my brave I found! I went through two surgeries, a year of treatments, and kept working. Full time! I woke up each morning, put on my earrings and make-up, and made sure to go to lunch with my friends often!

Being brave does not have to be running into a burning building or facing cancer. It can be stepping out of YOUR box, like asking a stranger for ketchup, or changing careers when you’re 55, or getting out of bed after a long time following the loss of a loved one, or wanting to spread your wings after experiencing depression for years.

Bravery, “a quality that allows someone to do things that are frightening (to her).” Acts of bravery often require a helping hand or an encouraging voice, like my grandma was for me. Whether it’s a hug or a compassionate ear to listen, support from a gentle place and person can be what helps someone to cross that threshold of fear.

I have chosen to become that person for others needing an encouraging voice, an empathetic hand to hold, a quiet listener with whom to share. I created Insync Energy and Intuitive Self-Care so I could reach out and offer my gifts to you. These gifts involve gentle healing techniques, a prepared safe and cozy space, and time where you can heal and find YOUR brave. All it takes is one step forward. Your brave is right there inside of you. Can you feel it? It might be a tickle right now. But I know if you inch closer to the other side of your comfortable box, you can find it and let it out. Learn more here about how the work I do can draw out your brave, your courage, your strength. It’s time to be brave, my friend, and I can help guide you there……..www.InsyncEnergy.com

What Truly Matters

When we are in doubt, the times life seems to be the most challenging and unforgiving, there is a surefire way to reconnect to faith and all that truly matters. Nature in all its glory. Sit in on this show and listen to the sights and sounds of Mother Earth and all of creation. The many different songs of the birds, all so distinct, the lone butterfly enjoying nectar from the flowers, the breezes rustling the leaves, and that one beautiful rose blooming in the dead of winter.

All of these signs are a reminder of life, beauty, and sustenance that we have been given to honor, love, and cherish. They are reminders that we are not alone; everything and everyone works in conjunction with everything else.

There is a connectedness throughout all of nature bringing forth cohesive partnerships to uphold the promise of survival on Earth and of the Earth. Infinite Gratitude belongs to all players, big and small, seen and unseen. Together we stand to keep Her alive for we must live out our destiny.

Connecting to Mother Earth brings us back to the reality that the world is bigger than we are but still needs each of us to participate in ways, no matter how tiny a gesture, to protect Her. This gives each of us power and purpose for every breath we breathe into her atmosphere. Now, that is a reason to Live and Rejoice!!!!

If you are interested in discovering how to get started, how to quiet the mind and relax, so you can develop this deeper connection to nature and yourself, please contact me for a free 10 minute consultation: http://www.InsyncEnergy.com.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a glorious day filled with little miracles :),

Self, Health, and Matters of Family

As a practitioner who assists others with healing on an energetic level, I practice and commit to being an open channel to the Divine. It is then that I am able to receive guidance so I know what to do and how I can be of service to clients, friends, and loved ones. Intuition and trusting myself to receive this sacred information for others is the key when facilitating healing.

Sometimes I forget that the same ‘rules’ apply to me, too. When I am not feeling well, experiencing physical or emotional symptoms of some sort, it is essential that I tune into the Divine and trust my intuition so that I can help myself.

When I have so much information about myself, it is often difficult to set aside old beliefs and see my own situation clearly. However, last night, I was proud that I was able to tune into guidance— for me. I am visiting family for a week and tend to wander away from healthy choices I have made as an adult concerning physical and emotional well-being. To make things easier, I eat what my mom has in the house and eat the special foods she enjoys making for me. I’ve gone through several years of explaining to her why I no longer eat certain foods. We usually go straight from the airport to the grocery store because food is a priority for mom, wanting to make sure I have what I need while I am here. The prices of the gluten free foods and organic fruits and vegetables I eat cause her great stress and angst. This time, as she has not been feeling well, I chose not to go down that road, so we skipped the trip to the grocery store.

I am discovering that while I am trying to save my mom from the stress related grocery store incident, my body is telling me that what I am putting in it is more important. Last night, I kept dreaming that I could not breathe. Several times I woke up in the middle of the night gasping for air. I realized that my throat was closing, as if I was experiencing an allergic reaction to something I ate. Well, the only allergies I have are to antibiotics and occasionally funny reactions to peanuts. Rather than getting scared, I decided to tune into my body and angels and intuitive guidance. I immediately heard, “It was the chicken I ate for dinner. It was not organic. Think of what is used while raising the animals for food that is not organic. Aaaaaah! Hormones and antibiotics!” Bingo! I took a benedryl, prayed that my airways cleared for safe breathing, gave myself Reiki, and fell asleep for the rest of the night.

Lessons learned:

#1 My health and well-being is more important than trying to control someone else’s level of stress-which has nothing to do with me in the first place. I love my mom but I also love being able to breathe. Even though it is only a week, food and emotional choices are a priority. So glad it is raining today so we can go to the grocery store for some healthy choices without missing outdoor time :).

#2 We love our family, try to protect them. I know. I also know that the wisdom to understand that some things cannot be changed or controlled, the serenity prayer, was written in regards to navigating family relationships.

Here’s to health, self, and the Serenity Prayer!
