Do you want your home or office to smell like a spa?

Do you want to breathe in the benefits of therapeutic essential oils?

If you do, then a diffuser is for you!

This is the inexpensive little power house that I use.  It sits on my desk all day, and on my night stand at bedtime.


There is nothing quite like the aroma of orange and peppermint to get me moving in the morning!

Common Ground

Our best friends are the best and our closest relationships are so close because we share a lot of common ground with those individuals. This common ground is often built upon shared experiences. We meet someone on the first day of school and we go through every day with them, side by side, we hear the same lectures, we do the same assignments, we interact with the same people, we share hours and hours of our life together. We are friends because our lives are entwined. Over time these experiences build a bond. Inside jokes develop, we know what each other is thinking by body language, and we feel like we really know each other. These types of shared experiences often develop at work, school, church, clubs, on sports teams, in our neighborhoods and families.
Deep and lasting bonds are built on more than just shared experiences. We share interests, values and passions. It's more than just experiencing the same thing, it is reacting to those events in a similar way. We are more likely to be close friends with someone that shares our sense of humor and laughs at the same things we do. We are drawn to people who laugh when we laugh, and cry when we cry - those who share our reaction to the world.

Our reactions to the world stem from our personality and our core beliefs. They define what is sacred, what is funny, what is important, what is meaningful, and what is abhorrent to each individual. These values are key to how we view and react to the world around us, most especially the people around us. What is funny to one may be obscene to another. What we value differs, and it differs by degree. No two are exactly the same. Most people have some things in common, some shared values, beliefs, interests, or desires. If you look hard enough, you can usually find some common ground between two individuals.

Deep thinkers want to have conversations with other deep thinkers. Born skeptics want to hash out theories with other skeptics. Sports fans want to play, watch and talk about sports with other sports fans. It's no fun to take someone to the hockey game that hates hockey. It is painful to have your enthusiastic response fall on deaf ears. In short, birds of a feather, flock together.

It's not an exclusionary mindset. It's not necessarily judgmental. It's just human nature, it's logical. It requires a lot of effort to build a relationship with someone who is vastly different from us. We have to dig deep to find the common ground. There may be great rewards for that effort, but it won't come easily, and most people don't have what it takes to work that hard on a relationship. It does not mean that we don't love, respect, or value people who are different than we are. It just means that life moves along more harmoniously when we are surrounded by people who see the world similarly to the way we see it.

We naturally gravitate to those that share the most sacred of our common ground. Friendships, marriages, and business partnerships that share a set of core beliefs have a better chance of success. This is not to say that we should find clones of ourselves, and only associate with them. We all need to share our strengths with each other. Finding team members who possess complimentary skills and talents is critical. What I am talking about are core values. When our core values are aligned with our team, then things flow more easily, and success is more easily attained. When we want the same things, and define success in the same way, we can move down that path more freely.

Relationships can erode when common ground is lost. If one or more of the parties radically depart from the status quo, it can be difficult. What was once shared is now in conflict. Resolving that conflict is a big challenge. It's difficult to adjust to a new way of relating with someone you have known for a long time. The points where you used to connect don't line up anymore, and the change is unsettling. This does not mean that the parties involved no longer love or care for each other. It's not a matter of allowing or accepting that the other person has changed, it's figuring out how to connect with this new set of differences. When individuals change, their relationships also change, as a natural consequence. It's hard to know just where the relationship stands when the common ground erodes out from under you.

This can especially be true when someone changes their political affiliation or religious beliefs. What are the two subjects best avoided in polite society? Religion and politics? That's because the emotions attached to these points run deep. They pretty much set the stage for an individual's world view. These type of fundamental changes represent a major shift in how a person thinks and feels about life. It changes how they react to the events and people around them. It changes their relationships.

When someone close to use has a major shift in previously shared core beliefs it can feel like a personal rejection. For the person that has not made any shift, it can feel like the other party is rejecting them personally, along with their previously shared world view. If they no longer agree with how you think, they no longer agree with you. If they no longer value your ideals, they no longer value you. If they think your beliefs are wrong, they think you are wrong. It's a pretty logical conclusion to make. Logical maybe, but not necessarily helpful. If the particular core belief that changed was what the relationship was built upon, it might be insurmountable. How can two hunting buddies remain close friends when one of them becomes a vegan and a PETA activist?

The person who converts to a different religion, moves to a new country, or swaps political parties is a brave soul. Breaking with the pack can leave a person alone and without any deep connections. The old connections are weakened, even if the individuals involved are loving and accepting of the change, they no longer have the strength of unity, and opportunities for shared experiences diminish. New connections are just that, new. They don't have the benefit of years of shared experiences and so they are weaker. Often people revert back to their traditional religion, country, or ideology. It's hard to go it alone. Making new close connections takes time and life doesn't stop throwing challenges at you so you can get your new support system in place.
In most cases, if both parties really try, common ground can be found. It might be a small little plot, but it is somewhere to start. When there is no longer any common ground, cherish the memories and consider respectfully parting ways. When you come upon someone newly landed in your circle, extend a hand of friendship and help them build the strong connections they need. Love, patience, and understanding go along way toward finding common ground.

If you find yourself struggling to rebuild a relationship that has suffered some erosion, or if you have just made a giant leap into the unknown and need to build new connections, a SimplyHealed TM session can help clear away any energetic blocks and set you firmly on the path to common ground.

Do What You Love

It's that time of year again, the time for self-evaluation and goal setting.  There are many ways to go about it, and the how is not as important as the what.  If you are setting the wrong goals, even when you achieve them, you will not find the peace and satisfaction you desire. 

How do you figure out what are the right goals for you?  It takes some deep thinking, and being honest with yourself about who you are and what makes you happy.  Take a few minutes to watch this video and really ponder.

What do you love? How would you spend each day if you were not concerned with money?  What brings you happiness?  What makes you excited to wake up in the morning?

If you find yourself answering, "I don't know", you are not alone.  Many people feel stuck and unsure of what they really want to do with their life.  Year after year, day after day, they keep doing what they have always done, paying the bills, keeping food on the table, never getting ahead, feeling bored and unhappy.  Some people hate their jobs, while others are just bored.  It is an all too common way of life.

Identifying, and working through the energetic blocks that are keeping you stuck can be quick and painless.  Many of these stumbling blocks are things we have carried over from our ancestors, coping methods which served them well, but no longer serve us and even hinder us.  There is no reason to remain in the holding pattern another year, another month, another day, another moment.   Energy moves on a breath, at the speed of light.  You can break the cycle.

Start 2013 off with a breath of fresh air and set your goals with clarity of purpose.  If you want help getting unstuck, schedule your private session now, and start doing what you love, and loving your life.

Clients not living in Hawaii, please note the time difference between your location and Hawaii when scheduling. All times listed on the calendar are HST (Hawaii Standard Time).

What is a Chakra?  Simply put, it is a center of energy that rotates in a 3 dimensional manner eminating from the center of our body.  There are 7 main chakras, and they fuel different areas of our bodies energetically.  When something is off in one of your chakras, it can have a profound effect on your physical, mental or spiritual well-being. The following chart provides a basic overview of where each chakra is located, and the primary functions they perform.

Indigo Children

When someone, especially a child, doesn't behave the way society expects people want to put a label on them.  They want an explanation, and most often they want a "cure".  It is hard to deny that there seem to be more and more children who would fit the traditional, medical definition of ADD, ADHD, Hyperactive, Aspergers, PDD, Autism Spectrum, etc.  It seems like an epidemic. There certainly is something going on.  Whether there are more cases today, or we are just more aware, or what, I am not sure.   Often these children are labeled, medicated, enrolled in special ed, and therefore fixed.  They have been properly processed, so everyone is absolved of guilt and responsibility.

In the alternative medicine world, they are still labeled, but not necessarily "processed" .  They are referred to as Indigo children, Rainbow children, or Crystal children.  It is a kinder, gentler, prettier sort of label, but still a label.  They are thought to be a new, emerging personality type,  coming to change the world.  They are born ready, willing and able to challenge authority, and exert their will.  They are here to usher in the future.  Which of course is true, for all children, they are the future leaders of the world.  That's just how life works. :)

In my opinion, and experience, labels don't matter in the SimplyHealed menu.  If a child is having a hard time, or a parent is having a hard time with a child, (Sometimes the kids is happy as can be, but still driving the parents crazy.) a SimplyHealed session could offer much needed help.  Their energy knows what is needed.  Maybe there is nothing wrong with the child, it's just a relationship imbalance and a little shift will set things right.

While we can be roughly categorized into groups based on our behavior, or problems, we are all unique individuals.  No two of us are exactly alike.  Our prescription or path to happiness is not the same, even if we share the same label.  Energy work is awesome, especially SimplyHealed.  There is no need to define, or label, just move what needs moved, and lives improve.

The Connection Between Love and Abundance

I heard something interesting yesterday. The big 3 of life are 1. Health 2. Wealth 3. Love, and not necessarily in that order. If you have those 3, then life is pretty sweet. If one or more is messed up, then, well, not so much. That isn't news, and not all that interesting. What was interesting is this ....

If you are lacking wealth, you can't expect it to fall out of the sky and land in your lap. The way we get money, is through our interactions with other people, through relationships. If you are unemployed, who is going to hire you?  A person is. If you have a job, you have to keep the boss happy. And who is the boss, yes, again, a person.  If you own a business, you have to keep your customers happy.  And who are customers?  People.. Even if you are kid, you have to keep Mom and Pop happy to keep the allowance money flowing. Anyway you look at it, cash flows from person to person. So, if you are having money troubles, what you really have are people troubles.

Puts a whole interesting new spin on it for me. My brain has been analyzing my life in a whole new light the last 24 hours. Here are are some questions to ponder.

1. Do you think that you have to grovel for your pay?
2. Do you think that other people need their money more than they need to pay you?
3. Do you over pay for things?
4. Do you buy things to give you a sense of power?
5. Do you think you are over paid for your work?
6. Do you expect people to cheat you?
7. Do you think that the only way to get ahead is by being dishonest?
8. Do you think being poor is noble?
9. Do you know how to ask for what you want with confidence?
10. Do you know what it feels like to have more than enough for your ideal life?

Those are money issues, but at the heart of it all, it's about love. How so? Well, let me try and explain.

1. Do you think you have to grovel for your pay? (or any other physical need)
When we grovel, we debase ourselves. We grovel because we feel like the other person has power over us, that they are superior, and we are worth far less. This action comes from an extreme lack of self worth, a lack of love in the relationship with that person, and a lack of love for our self.

2. Do you think that other people need their money more than they need to pay you?
Are you willing to take less pay so the company can have more profit?  Are you willing to work for less than you are worth because the customer can't afford your standard price?  Are you willing to discount yourself, for the sole benefit of another?  If you do, then you are trying to buy love and acceptance at the cost of your self respect.  Everyone wants a good deal, but there is a line that should not be crossed.  Why does their desire for a bargain out way your desire for an abundant life?  There is a fair price, that is fair to all parties.  If someone expects you to give more than is fair, they do not value you and giving in to their demands will not raise your standing with them, it will lower it.

3. Do you over pay for things?
Over paying is emotionally and energetically the same as working for too little.  It is an attempt to buy acceptance and love.  In a way you are are telling the company, or person you are dealing with, that you value them more than you value yourself.  You are using your wealth to manipulate others into giving you what you want - respect, acceptance, inclusion, and ultimately love.

4. Do you buy things to give you a sense of power?
I remember when I was a kid and I had $3 in my pocket at McDonald's.  I felt this amazing sense of power when I realized that I had the ability to purchase anything on the menu.  (I know, this totally dates me, cause $3 won't buy you squat today).  I felt very powerful, and just a little bit prideful, standing there like a big shot ordering my Big Mac, fries, shake, AND a hot apple pie.  My parents almost never took us to McDonald's and they certainly never bought those silly apple pie things.

Seriously, do you every buy something expensive, or have your hair done, because you crave that feeling of power?  When you walk into the store you know they have to put up with your crap because you are the one with the cash?  How about taking your friends out to eat and paying for everyone, to give yourself a little boost in the ego?  It's not the buying of nice things, or the treating your friends that is the problem, it is the WHY you do it that is the problem.  Again, it comes down to love, or the lack there of.

5. Do you think you are over paid for your work?
Unless you really are being paid $100/hour to sit and watch TV, this is a false belief about your worth as a human being.  Do you love yourself enough to just let the good stuff come your way, or are you always undermining your own success?  Are you happy stuck in the muck, and afraid to let yourself rise above to where you really deserve to be?  Who are you to determine what your services, skills, or expertise are worth to another?  You might think it is easy, but to someone else it might just be priceless.

6. Do you expect people to cheat you?
If you expect people to cheat you, then you will be cheated.  Expecting the worst, means you have very little regard for your fellow human beings, or yourself.  You think the world is out to get you, and with that attitude, you are probably right.  Expecting the worst in others leaves no room for love, or respect.  At the root of thinking like this is the false belief that life is a zero sum game.  It is not, there is plenty for all.

7. Do you think that the only way to get ahead is by being dishonest?
This is the other side of the same coin as expecting others to cheat you.  At the core, it is the same false belief, that there is not enough for everyone to live abundantly.  If you want some, you have to steal it from someone else, there isn't enough for both of you.  Life is not a game of poker.  You can get ahead without bluffing and hiding an ace up your sleeve.  We can all win.

8. Do you think being poor is noble?
Believing that rich people are evil, and that if you are poor you are more righteous, is prideful. You are setting yourself above others.  It doesn't matter what the reason is, if you think you are better than someone else, you are lacking in love.    If you think it is noble to be poor, and you are working hard to get more income, you will either sabotage yourself into remaining poor, or come to hate yourself if you succeed at increasing your income.  Being rich  or poor does not make a person good or bad.  It's about how you treat others.

9. Do you know how to ask for what you want with confidence?
It's important to know how to ask for what you want.  If you have never been successful at asking for what you want, then you probably don't know how to do it right.  I'm no expert here, but I think the key is feeling love and gratitude rather than fear and doubt.  When your heart and mind are full of love and gratitude, you will exude confidence.

10. Do you know what it feels like to have more than enough for your ideal life?
If your life to this point has been a struggle, then you probably don't know what it feels like to have enough.  It's hard to visualize, and bring to pass something with which you have no experience.

Even if you have had a life of financial troubles, you have had success at something.  Remember that feeling, the feeling of success, and import it into your heart when you are thinking about your financial goals.   It's ok to borrow those feelings of success from other areas of your life.

Just in case you were thinking that you have never had enough of anything you needed in your life, that you have always had to do without, here is a little exercise for you.  Stop right now and take a deep breath, fill your lungs all the way up.  Do you feel that?  Your lungs are completely full, you couldn't possibly take in another breath.  You have all the oxygen you need and what do you need more than air?  Focus on that feeling of fullness, when you think about all your other needs.

What is the difference between oxygen, or sunlight, or food, or a house, or a big pile of money to God?  It's all the same to Him.  We have been abundantly provided for and it all comes from the same source.  You are loved.

Diving into Life

Life is like the ocean. Sometimes it is calm and peaceful, and sometimes it is a raging storm. Even during the peaceful times, there are waves and currents. The tides roll in, the tides roll out, day after day, without fail. The ocean is always teaming with life and activity. It is never still. It is always changing. Life is exactly like this.

If you attempt to sit still in the ocean, you are carried one way or another by waves and currents. It takes some action on your part to direct your path, or to even stay in one place. You have to swim, tread water, kick, paddle, drop an anchor, do something, or you are going to be moved. If you pause, for even a moment, the current can move you great distances. The ocean is a powerful force, even when peaceful.
Have you ever stood at the beach and let the waves rush over you? Not ready to jump right in to all the chaos, you timidly walk down to where water meets sand and inch your way in. As you stand there enjoying the cool flood over your hot feet, WHAM! a huge wave comes and knocks you on your butt. As you try to stand, the sand under you rushes away, pulled back into the water with the receding wave, you lose your footing, and down you go again. As you struggle, another wave comes along, and you are rolled. That second wave doesn't need to be very big to knock you over, since you haven't fully recovered from the first one. You are only sort of standing, and very unsteady. As wave after wave continues to hit, you tumble, and roll, struggle, and gasp. Eventually, you back up, and retreat to higher ground, or dive on in and try to get all the sand out of your pants.

Inching towards a big change in life can be frightening. We approach with caution, and inch our way in. Standing there, hesitating, we can get hit with a big wave, a devastating set back, like a major illness, job loss, death of a loved one, etc. Then when we are down, and still struggling to stand, even the smallest waves can knock us back down, and keep us down, tumbling us over and over, as we struggle to breathe and stand. Sometimes it seems like those waves keep on coming, and that we are going to drown, that the ocean will win, and drag us out to sea. We might even need a friend to rescue us and pull us one way or another, out of the line of fire.
The best way to go for a swim in the ocean, is to run and dive right on in. Dive over the wave, into the wave, or under it. When you are swimming, you cannot be knocked down. The wave loses its power when you stop resisting, and go with the flow. What is a powerful force at the shore, capable of knocking you flat, is a gentle rocking motion when you are bobbing along in the middle of it. If you are swimming under the surface, it feels like nothing at all. While standing, or treading water, if a large wave approaches, and you aren't paying attention, you can still get walloped good. A face full of salt water that leaves you sputtering, but still upright. If you see it coming, all it takes is a little hop just at the right moment, and you float along, with your head safely above the surface. Resisting is what causes all the trouble.

In life, it's just the same. It's the resistance to life's changes,and challenges that bring all the destruction and pain. When we fight against the inevitable, when we hesitate to take the next step, that's when life really knocks us down. We have to pay attention, see what is coming our way, and then jump on board, and ride the wave. When we resist, we go under, we sputter, and gasp. Life is never going to be like a reflection pool - still and perfectly clear. It keeps moving, and changing. Every day we have new things come our way. Life changes. If we don't figure out how to adapt and change with it, we suffer, and life is harder than it needs to be.

Learning to anticipate the waves, and jump into them, rather than resist, helps smooth out the ride. If you see a future challenge coming, do what you can to prepare for it, and when it hits - jump up to great it, rather then try to out run it, you will float along with only a minor disruption. You can't out run, or out swim, the waves of change that life brings. Babies grow up, kids get married, people get sick, we have to move, jobs are lost, cars break down, we grow old, and everyone of us will eventually die. You can't avoid these normal life events. You can prepare, you can be watchful, and you can embrace each new wave as it comes your way. You can jump in and live life, rather than stand on the shore and let the waves beat you down. You must keep moving, if you wish to have any peace. There is no such thing as standing still.

Be still and know that I am God

When we are still and quiet we are open to inspiration. When our will perfectly reflects the will of Heaven, we achieve clarity.
