Reflecting On The Thanks In Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of all times. It's this holiday that is about family and friends and being together. For me Thanksgiving has a softness to it and is a very humbling holiday.

My family has had a tradition for over 40 years that continues to this day. Living in Maine what else do you have the night before Thanksgiving but lobsters. I have carried lobsters more than seven hours to a family Thanksgiving event.

Around Thanksgiving I like to take stock on the things that I am thankful for. Maybe you and your family and do something similar.

This year I'm thankful for my health, my family, my friends and my work.

This year I want to share how thankful I am for all the thousands of clients who i have partnered with over the years. You all continue to teach me about strength, resiliency and courage.

I have watched many of you address serious health issues, restructure your personal and professional lives, to become healthier, happier, freer and wiser. You all do the hard work of creating change in your lives which I too am no stranger to.

So this Thanksgiving 2017 I I have all of you on my list of things to be thankful for.

Hoping you and your families have a wonderful Thanksgiving.


2017 Great American Total Solar Eclipse: What Now?

The images on the internet this week have been nothing short of spectacular, especially in areas of totality. Imagine many hundreds of years ago how such a sight as the sun obscuring the moon could be viewed as a warning or omen.


Historically there have been some major events on a total solar eclipses such as assassination of leaders, wars ending, bombings so there is a lot of interest within the astrology community and the world in general on it’s potential impact.


There has been much speculation ranging from, Steven Forrest’s wait and see attitude to doom and gloom in other circles. One webinar I recently watched with astrologer Lynn Bell suggested that however this eclipse impacts us let’s try to make it the highest manifestation we can personally & globally. I couldn’t agree more.


Personally I think it’s impact will be substantial. Especially as we apply this event to our charts occurring at 28 degrees of the sign Leo. If you have planets in your chart that are within 3 degrees on either side of 28 degrees of Leo the effect may be the strongest (i.e. planets 25 degrees of Leo to 1 degree of Virgo).


If you have no planets in that range then you could look to the house in your chart that 28 degrees of Leo would fall into. This may be an arena of your life that now becomes highlighted.


This list outlines the houses and the life arenas they represent for each of us.


Astrological Houses/Life Arenas


1st. House: My face to the world, personality, ife views and self image


2nd. House: What I value, finances, resources and material values


3rd House: Communication, thinking patterns and intellect


4th. House: Home, inner security, now & early life, and psychological foundation


5th House: Children, creativity, pleasure, and romance


6th. House: Work and service, health


7th. House: 1:1 relationships with others, contracts and partnerships


8th. House: Areas of power, sex, joint finances, death and loss, and others resources


9th. House: Values, spirituality, ethics, travel, dreams, and higher mind


10th House: Our public/professional self, career, status, professional



11th. House: Groups, community, friends, hopes, and social values


12th House: Hidden resources, spiritual realization, subconscious, collective unconscious-, karmic debts, escapism, and loss


The sun and moon came together visually in the sky thus symbolically our conscious, sun and unconscious, moon merged and then continued on their way again. Many thousands stopped in their daily routine to look skyward, away from their personal stories and stories of the world around us.


To me it feels like there could be a resetting of what we do consciously as individuals and as a country as our shadow selves are highlighted and played out on the world stage. This is an opportunity to look for clarity in an area of life that needs our focus.


For me the arena is the 4th house, and I am looking at self empowerment with particular attention to communication and the duality I experience.


Looking at the Sibly chart (most widely used chart for USA) I see the eclipse fell in our nation’s 9th House: values, spirituality, ethics, travel, dreams, and higher mind. Given our current political and social climate in the months leading up to and through the eclipse I’d say it’s effects are already being felt. How it plays out is difficult to know, but I keep going back to the intent that Lynn Bell and I share. Chart data: 7/4/1776, 5:10 PM, Philadelphia, PA.


Wondering what house the Great American Solar Eclipse falls in for you, your business or others? What effect will this great event have on you? You first need to start with your chart.

Honoring Louise Hay

One of the major pioneers in health, wellness and self discovery, Louise Hay, died on 8/30/17 at age 90.


Louise Hay’s first book Heal Your Body was published in 1976. I still have my copy, tattered and dog eared from me and the numerous others I have lent it to over the years. Somehow it always finds it’s way back to my book shelf. 


The book came after she became a minister & was overcoming her own emotional, physical & spiritual challenges and losses, which were not insignificant. She lit the candle for women in the 1970’s to take control of their lives, thoughts and to find their voices through self acceptance and self love.


When I read her book in the 70’s I was working as a critical care nurse and had recently begun my metaphysical journey. I was seeing first hand how thoughts, self blame, anger and resentment were manifesting as illness in my patients and as migraines in myself. This was the beginning of an amazing journey into my current work. 


She published her second book You Can Heal Your Life in 1984 from her own publishing house, so well know to all of us in the wellness community,  Hay House. That book (yes I have that one too) has sold over 50 million copies and has been translated into many languages. Just imagine if that one book was shared with just 4 others- that would be over 200 million people she has reached with her message of love. I expect the number is much higher.


Louise was a pioneer in the very early days of self help literature and over the course of her life and work has brought together other  notable metaphysical pioneers such as Wayne Dyer, Caroline Myss, Marianne Williamson, Doreen Virtue & Gregg Braden to name just a very few under the Hay House roof. She leaves a huge void in the metaphysical community with her death, but through her gathering of these visionaries ensures that the light she ignited is sure to continue to brighten the world.

Signs and Symbolism In Your Everyday

Signs and Symbolism In Your Everyday…. Are you
Signs are all around us, like the stop sign or yield sign but more than telling us what to do there are signs that are symbolic… IF we are aware! If you hit every stop light on your way to work for a week could that mean something more symbolically? Would you start to think that the Universe is trying to send you a sign because it is feeling like more than just a random event? We get individual signs everyday yet when we get the same sign repeatedly we need to look at the underlying symbolism and how that might inform our life and decision making. Here are some examples of how people have symbolically interpreted the signs in their lives and taken action.
The Dog Whisperer
Jamie, a CFO for a Boston Corporation kept seeing stories on the TV about the adjustment difficulties rescued dogs had when brought to shelters. Paying attention to the signs she started volunteering at a local shelter where she found that dogs that were seemingly aggressive and unapproachable she could calm and have asleep in her lap in minutes. This has now become her life’s work.
Past Life Signs
Lynn developed a sudden and totally unexpected infatuation with a man she just met that she could not shake no matter how hard she tried. She sensed there had to be another connection and through a past life regression experience she uncovered the deep, significant connection she felt they had experienced. Once she understood the connection her infatuation ended and life went back to normal (Note: experiences shared with permission, names have been changed).
Finding a New Home - 2 Different Signs
I was looking for a home to buy, 3 years ago and nothing on the market worked. Every house needed so much work and renovation and I did not have the time or energy for that and was giving up my search. Out of the blue I got a call from an old friend asking me to consider a new condo that was being built in his complex…this was my sign. The location, size and neighbors, everything felt right. On top of that the name, Wiltshire Place, is the name of the town in England where Stonehenge is located, the mysteries of which have always fascinated me.
How to Watch For Signs and Take Action
Increase you awareness of what goes on around you. Start actively looking for your signs and write them down. Looking at your signs, start thinking ahead to how they might be directing you. Consider what action feels right. Listen to your intuition or gut instinct and take action.

Lessons Learned In The Check Out Line

Lessons learned in the Grocery Store’s,14 item check out line.
So I am in the 14 items or less grocery check out line and got my goodies on the conveyor belt, put the plastic divider between my order and the one yet to be put down behind me.
I then stepped back from the conveyor and forward so the older man behind could  move forward to put his items on the conveyor.
I was in daydream mode after all the work of shopping till the man behind be touched my arm and said….
“Do you know what you just did (moving so he could get in) is the first time that has happened and what a difference that made for me in my day?”
I was so struck that the small and I do mean small thing I did really made a difference to this man and I got to thinking to myself…… “ now you get it ….it’s the small things that matter not the BIG things”. 
Ya I know not a new concept but the impact of it was now different.
How many little things can be done in a day that really mount up and create positive karma not just for me but those I come into contact with.
We are all rushing through our days but that moment in the 14 item check out line registered with my heart and soul and doing grocery check out will not be the same for me. So simple but so profound.
Lesson: It’s the little things that matter, not the big ones!

Two Day Workshop In Big Sky, MT

By Amanda Eggert, EBS Senior Editor
BIG SKY – Elizabeth Thorson, an emergency room nurse, learned early on in her career that she had a talent for predicting who wouldn’t live to her next shift.
“I never understood why I was always working on that precipice of life and death in my professional career,” said Thorson, who is offering a workshop in Big Sky titled “Opening to your Intuition” on March 18 and 19. “I just sort of knew as a nurse who wouldn’t be on the ICU the next day, or who wouldn’t be out of surgery the following day.” 
Initially, Thorson felt the hospital was not a safe place to elaborate on her well-developed—if unasked for—skill, so she learned to shut down her intuition, just as she had when she was a young girl and sensed there would be hardship or difficulty if she shared certain things she knew without being able to explain them.
Then in her mid-30s, she began to open the door a crack—“and that was the beginning of the end for me,” said Thorson, who lives in Camden, Maine, but regularly visits family in Big Sky.
Now Thorson offers counseling to people who are seeking guidance on medical issues, as well as people going through a major transition. Although she doesn’t offer diagnoses—that’s practicing medicine without a license and illegal—she can help clients view illness through a different lens and understand possible causes.
When Thorson meets with clients who have questions about a medical issue, she works blind, meaning she doesn’t want to know their medical history or symptoms. Thorson said she works harder that way and finds that it forces her to rely more on her intuition.
Thorson said learning to operate with an intuitive understanding is more of a right-brain operation, a thinking style she associates with creativity and imagination, than a left-brain one, which is more commonly referred to as the realm of judgment and logic.
