After many years dabbling all different mediums of art - I finally found my favorite type of art - quite late in life in fact- mid-40's! It's one of those fervent, excited bubbly feelings that burst out of one's soul and has to create until it's completed. After watching a TV show of a professional illusionist on a TV talk show, suddenly I had this deep urge go to make a diorama for Eric Ross.... to show appreciation of his unique magic tricks. The reason I like his tricks is that he believed in making standard tricks "even better". Somehow I found his website and asked if I could send him a gift, he said sure. After about 2 and half weeks later, I completed my first diorama. I studied a lot of his videos, his messages, his tattoos, his personality. Paid attention to details in the creating process depicting his personality/likes/talents. Four months later, I got his email and he stated that he loved it and said I captured his essence perfectly. That made me so happy.
Created my first fairy house around 2020- burnt my fingertips a lot from the glue gun! ;D I collected a lot of sticks from many of my walks in nature. Took me 3 months with many errors. Being dyslexic, I built things backwards sometimes! Funny to look back. Learned lessons quickly that way. Note to self: BUILD the foundation, such as a floor FIRST and then put the walls or roof later.
This took me about 12 hours or more to create. I enjoyed creating this cute crystal store and gifted it to someone. Learned my lesson to never send fragile dioramas through the mail as a lot of things broke and got damaged no matter how carefully the Fed Ex manager packed it for me. So, from now on, if a customer wants it, has to pick it up themselves.
This 3-D card I made for my brother who retired from the army. As a Warrant Officer III, it was a big deal and I couldn't celebrate his retirement due to Covid. So sent him this telling him that since I couldn't go to his party, I sent the party to him. He liked it. It's challenging to use with what I had. Being on a strict budget, I had to only buy few basics to match his career, otherwise, the rest was all from what I've saved over the years and upcycled or recycled.

This is one of the best article I've read in a long time about overwhelming clutter can affect our mental health. A must read!
I personally have been struggling releasing mostly papers - due to Executive Functioning Disorder (EFD) on top of Irlen Syndrome (where words on paper or screen becomes distorted) - it literally shuts down my brain. However, non-paper items are usually easier for me to let go. But since living in a tiny studio apartment has been very challenging as people give/gift me more stuff, more knick knacks that I don't need, working remotely has me using more computers and devices with wires everywhere, and art supplies has completely taken over.
Feeling overwhelmed, this article was exactly what I need to get motivated again as it lists helpful strategies in recognizing what different types of clutter can affect us with specific influences.

May we use the winter season a time to declutter, organize and enhance our homes spacious, clean, and effective to help us to feel relaxed, comfortable, and in some places productive. Our internalized states is often reflected in our own environment. Taking even just half-hour a day keep in mind to be grateful and relish in being mindful in this meditative physical act of decluttering to improve your life on multiple levels.
One of the most helpful guide book I've read in choosing which career and skills that I could do to earn money was this book titled: What Color Is Your Parachute? is the world’s most popular job-hunting guide, revised and updated annually with more than ten million copies sold.
I've personally used it myself and was delighted I could use a lot of my talents into different jobs. I'm the type that likes to do different things on daily basis to keep me on my toes.
Have a happy career hunting journey!

Send this NOTICE of NON-CONSENT to say NO to the "Big Brother" bill (HR 6666) & preserve YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!
Solutions for Humanity
On May 1, 2020, 45 congress members co-sponsored Bill HR 6666, proposing to spend $100 BILLION dollars in 2020 to hire "contact tracers", coronavirus testers, and reporting agents. If passed, this would create an unprecedented new mega-industry for what appears to be a type of "medical martial law".
Proponents of this bill apparently want to hire a massive number of staff to enforce "social distancing", administer tests in our homes — apparently whether we consent or not, and apparently — if we perceive the bill correctly — even grant themselves the right to take people who "test positive" from their homes!
The full name of this bill HR 6666 is the "COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act". As many of you know, what is referred to as "contact tracing" is more aptly called Big Brother surveillance.
Ventura, California recently announced their own draconian measure threatening to forcibly test and remove people from their homes if "necessary"... though they subsequently backtracked probably due to the massive pushback.
As many of us have come to realize (not a comfortable process), there indeed appears to be an agenda to lock humanity into a so-called "new normal" reality of technocratic policing and constant monitoring. Self-appointed technocrats and their organizations appear highly motivated to have us vaccinated and tracked with wireless and, it strongly appears, biometrics.
But millions are waking up and sharing information. This is a fight for the soul of humanity, and we're learning what it means to combine love and action.
» YOU'VE AWAKENED. NOW LET'S COME TOGETHER AND ACT.
This instant action is the first step. It will be sent to each of YOUR elected reps, at the Federal, State and Municipal level.
We have about 80% coverage at the local level... i.e. so for most of you, you'll be able to instantly send to your Mayor and Councillors. Also, we currently have USA nationwide coverage, and will add several other countries shortly.
In this action, we'll use strong yet respectful language to 1) ask them to stop HR 6666 and all similar legislation, *AND* 2) remove our consent for all violations to our Constitutional Rights — including those occuring during this crisis.
» PRINCIPLES OF NON-CONSENT
Doing this simple action is powerful! In legal and contractual terms, there's a mechanism called "implied consent", or "tacit acceptance." That means that, once you've been notified of (or even learned about) a thing, if you haven't said NO, you've essentially said YES.
Because this is a free-will universe, those that pull the strings in our society want us to be informed of their agenda... to be in fear about it... and to not go further than sharing information, signing petitions (which do not remove our consent), and perhaps demonstrating.
These types of actions are all well and good, but they do not go deep enough, because we can do all of these things and still be in a position of legally / contractually having consented to the situation — or, in contractual terms, to their "offer".
But when we begin to realize who we are, the power we have, and the terrible charade happening in our world that is intended to bind us, we can turn the tables, then create what we want instead. Removing our consent and standing with our unalienable* rights, granted by our Creator (as recognized in the Constitution), is a significant and powerful first step. The steps that follow include embodying and walking this out -- i.e. acting in alignment with the powerful, responsible beings that we are — throughout our day-to-day lives.
* unalienable: that which cannot be seprated from you.
» BELOW IS THE NOTICE TEMPLATE WE'LL HELP YOU INSTANTLY SEND.
NOTE: Since you are the one with power, you are the reponsible party. It's important that you read the Notice in full; and since it's editable, customize it accordingly (on Step 2) so that you are in full agreement with what you are sending.
Dear [Elected Rep's Name],
The discussions about “contact tracing” surveillance, and other measures associated with the lockdown, have unparalleled importance since what is at stake is whether Americans will retain unalienable Constitutional rights – or if those rights will be exchanged for “privileges”.
Various unprecedented “pandemic measures” are being discussed and or implemented by federal, state and municipal governments. On May 1, the TRACE Act (HR 6666) was introduced, proposing $100 BILLION in 2020 to create a “contact tracing” mega-industry – a ubiquitous, unconstitutional surveillance network – to continuously surveil without warrant, to enforce “social distancing” through citizen-policing, to enforce testing and possibly medicating against consent, and apparently to grant the “authority” to remove people from their dwellings (though as written, this last point is as of yet unclear in intent). See: bit.ly/bill6666
Combined with “lockdowns”, which are increasingly seen by Americans as clearly unfitting measures, this new legislative action is egregious and, for federal officials, you need to immediately stop this bill. For all officials: stop all anti-Constitution legislation, and align your actions to preserve all Constitutional rights and the rule of law in this country.
Will you uphold the US Constitution and support Chief Justice John Marshall’s decree that any laws in opposition to the Constitution are repugnant, and are null and void, as per the US Supreme Court case Marbury v. Madison decided on February 24, 1803?
Second, is my understanding correct, that the US Constitution is still active and valid; and that I have the ability to seek legal and lawful remedy for that which causes me harm?
I will expect a response in writing (email) with your answer within 10 days. If I do not hear back from you, or you fail to respond, it will be clear to me that you do NOT deserve my vote in the next upcoming election; and that my understanding, as stated here, is correct.
There are many fundamental questions emerging about the CV-19 pandemic narrative. Much is coming to light about how mortality models were wrong; doctors saying they were asked to inaccurately state CV-19 as cause of death; studies reveal gross inaccuracies with PCR testing; whether mask-wearing helps or harms; and apparent agendas for advancing pharmaceutical/telecom interests, biometrics and the removal of basic freedoms. Many millions of Americans are becoming aware, and this isn’t a passing thing. See: bit.ly/2AoLEFn
AN UNDERSTANDING, PERTAINING TO MY RIGHTS
A. I have unalienable rights recognized in the original US Constitution that cannot be superseded by any agenda, nor be removed from me.
B. My unalienable rights are being harmed by agendas implemented by oath-sworn elected officials, corporate executives and/or non-elected officials (collectively “Agents Of Harm”). These include, without limitation:
i. My free rights to speak, travel, do commerce, work, assemble, and be free of surveillance without warrant.
ii. A threat of medical procedures, testing or experimentation without my consent.
iii. Threats of punitive detention, violence and or harm for non-compliance.
C. My unalienable rights are NOT conditional – i.e. subject to proving I am not contagious, nor submitting to surveillance, nor anything that would cause me harm – properly called “extortion”.
NOTICE OF NON CONSENT
Let it be known throughout all jurisdictions and dimensions that:
A. I do not consent to being harmed by any imposition of quarantine, or restriction on my Constitutional right to assemble, work, travel, speak or do commerce.
B. I do not consent to being told to live in fear, nor made to wear a mask, nor being mandated an allowable proximity to others, nor being made subject to “contract tracing” surveillance.
C. I do not consent to any offer of forced medical experimentation or testing; nor forced medical procedure (i.e. vaccine, or substance delivered by air, water, or other means without my knowledge and consent); nor exposure to radiation from deployments of 4G/5G/wireless infrastructure; nor being tracked by any technology or biometric device on or adjacent to my body.
D. I accept your oath of office as your sworn statement which compels you to uphold the Constitutional against all enemies, foreign and domestic; to protect my rights; and to exhibit a duty of care to respond appropriately when informed of harm taking place.
E. I reserve all my rights, nunc pro tunc, to pursue legal and lawful remedy for all harm and threats of harm, which may constitute criminal assault and or tort, caused or contributed by Agents Of Harm. I reserve the right to seek legal and lawful remedy unless and until the stated harmful actions cease and desist.
I sincerely hope that you perceive the gravity of the present situation, and that you choose to be on the right side of this matter – the side in which Constitutional rights are defended and we have a chance at life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Thank you for reading this notice, sent to you in good faith, and without ill-intent.
“The law helps the vigilant, before those who sleep on their rights.”
“He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”

Just learned that six planets this year will be retrograding. Here is a great guide to prepare yourself on various levels. Remember to always focus on what you can change and let go what you cannot and keep on keeping on.
Here is a very helpful concept to meditate and process thoroughly:
Chiron is associated with "the wound that cannot heal." Indeed, life always contains a component that can't be entirely fixed or dismissed. You can't un-ring the bell. You can't change the past. What's done is done, and sometimes it leaves an tender scar.
Yes, you can certainly change how you respond to these things. You can change how you express your experience of them, and the priority you give them within the context of your life as a whole. You can even make lemonade out of the lemons that life has handed you, becoming stronger from having survived the sour hardships.
However, in these situations, you can't simply undo what occurred. Certain events and circumstances leave their mark and cannot be conveniently wrapped up in a garbage bag and thrown away. Not all scars fade, and some can start to ache when life's weather revives the memory of how they came to be.
This is the essence of Chiron's "wound that cannot heal." It is not a curse but part of the continuity of life. Even if something can't be fully healed, it doesn't mean you are helpless or powerless. You still have the ability to do something about it ...or with it.
FMI go here.

I’ve Met Ghosts Three Times
By RaVen Sequoia
The first time I have ever seen a ghost when I was about 24 years old. I lived in an old beautiful Victorian house with a roommate. We shared a room. One night I awoke startled and realized I had left my night light lamp on. My roommate in her bed in the other side of the room was sound asleep. To my shock, I saw a beautiful blond thin white woman with her arms outstretched wearing a long layered multi-colored pastels.
I froze in fear, she was staring straight into my eyes. She did not move but was at the edge of my bed near my feet. Petrified, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I peeked over to my roommate but she was asleep and her back faced me.
Slowly I looked over to the ghost and she was still leaning over with arms outstretched. She looked very sad, as if asking to help her. Freaked out, I couldn’t accept that I was seeing this ghost right in front of me. Suddenly I had the strongest urge to pee, not wanting to get out of the bed but feeling my bladder was about to burst, I resentfully and slowly crawled out of my bed. The female ghost still stood - her dress were in varied pastel colors of yellow, blue, pink, peach, white and green. I slowly stood up acutely aware of how I could still see her from the corner of my eye. I slowly walked by thinking to myself, She cannot move or come any closer to me or I’ll scream. Don’t you dare move.
My body was so tensed from her being too near, I rigidly managed to walk past by her without fainting, peeing in my pants or screaming. Then I ran fast to the bathroom and locked the door. After peeing, I stayed in the bathroom for many hours until dawn. Finally, when I was exhausted of waiting, I carefully walked to the bedroom door and slowly peeked inside. My eyes darted to my bed and the female ghost was no longer there.
NW 24th Ave Ghost Story
A Deaf friend invited me to join her to her company’s business party at her bosses’ luxurious classic large house in NW 24th Ave neighborhood. The female boss gave a small group of the employees and their loved ones or friends a tour. The house was gorgeously decorated with fascinating archeological antique items. My Deaf friend and I followed the group as her boss led us up to the staircase.
All of the sudden, I felt a freezing cold sweeping sensation pass through my body. It made me stop for a half-a-second but too many people were behind me and so I continued to forged upward. Suddenly, I sensed a cheerful spirit to my right. I looked at each rooms doorways. There were three. The door with the blue room drew me in. I looked at the empty room but suddenly “heard” a giddy laughter emitting from the area I happened to rest my eyes. In my third eye, I sensed a young female figure. I couldn’t see anything with my own eyeballs but sensed it mentally. I immediately turned to my friend and signed to her, 'I sensed a ghost.’ My friend scoffed at me. I asked her to ask her boss. She flushed in embarrassment and refused. I went ahead to ask, my friend tried to pull me back to stop me from asking her boss. Annoyed, I ignored her pleas and walked straight up to her boss and asked in front of the whole group. ‘Do you have a ghost here?’ Her boss smiled and confirmed ‘Yes, we do! We have a friendly ghost here. She likes to play tricks on us. She’s a good spirit. We ask her to stay out of our bedroom though so she’s usually hangs out in the blue room or the art room.’ My friend stared at me in shock. I smiled feeling relieved I sensed something real as that sweet female ghost. Her mischievous personality cheered my spirit up, it was great fun to meet her. I tried to imagine what it was like when a group of living human beings constantly ignores her. But then someone who is sensitive picks up her presence, it must have made her day. I guess even ghosts needs attention too from time to time.
SW Portland Old House
I was hired to organize a man’s office filing cabinet. He lived in an old house that was given to him after his father died. The house was built in the early 1900’s.
In the living room, I was assigned to assort all of the many stacks of papers strewn all over the desk, drawers and floors.
It was a sunny summer day and I was in a good mood especially since I LOVE helping people organize their homes.
After about an hour of organizing my customer’s paperwork… I began to feel depressed. I felt a sense of dread and profound sadness. Perplexed, the drastic shift of mood disturbed my concentration and I had to get up and leave the living room and enter into the kitchen to get my act together.
I questioned myself what could be triggering the sudden onset of depression and sadness. Was it something I ate? No. Was it any personal problems I was struggling with. No. Was it from some sad news that maybe lingering in the back of my mind? No. After exhausting all the logical possibilities of what could sudden slam me from being in a good mood into a despondent state… a teensy tiny voice in my head uttered, “Ghost?”.
I refused to believe that. Dismissing the notion, I immediately went back to the living room to resume my organizing project.
The dread and sadness gripped my lungs to the point I felt I was ready to cry in deep sobs. Alarmed, I could no longer deny that it had to be a ghost. Still skeptical, I asked my customer, who just happened to walk past by me in the hallway, could I talk to him for a minute and he said sure. I asked if he was open minded, he said yes, what is it? Nervously, I asked if there was a ghost in his house. He calmly looked at me with a blank expression and immediately said no. Relieved, I said, ‘Okay, thanks’.
I went back to work and forced myself to finish my task despite feeling depressed still.
Ten minutes later, my customer, walked up to me and admitted, ‘I remembered something, the first owner of this house, a woman, was murdered on the front porch a long time ago. Does that count?’
I thanked him for sharing that information with me.
Strangely enough, I had my bundled sage leaves in my backpack. Normally I don’t go around carrying a sacred smudging stick around. But for some reason, I did anyway. I took the sage stick out and lit it up. Went to the front porch outside.
Feeling sheepish, I looked around to make sure there were no neighbors being able to spot me smudging the front porch. I smudged the entire front porch and suddenly felt a deep dark sad despair in my chest again. I signed to her, “I feel you. I know you’re here. I am recognizing your presence.” The bleeding despair that seeped into my body seemed to slowed down to stay still. Empathetically, I told her that I understood what took place and immediately the gloomy sad emotions gripped my body again. I reassured her it’s all over and it’s time for her to leave. I said I was very sorry she had been murdered and she can go to the next plane, cross over to the other side to her loved ones. She asked me where do I go. I felt around for the entrance and noticed it was the right side above the railing. I pointed the portal and she immediately turned around to look at it. In awe, she stood there just gaping. I smiled and urged her to walk in and it’s okay to go. Time to go and cross over. The female ghost wearily walked inside it and I felt her getting smaller and smaller and finally the portal closed.
The despairing gloom left my chest and the dark sad mood disappeared. I was back to my old cheerful self. I felt a solid closure with this old female ghost that was murdered on the front porch. Feeling satisfied, I said a little prayer and bid her well. Went back to work and I was finally able to finish organizing the customer’s paperwork.
These are the three ghosts that I have experienced in my lifetime.
I still don’t like seeing ghosts but feeling them is fine. But it’s not like I zealously go after them or anything. Just those who really need help to cross over or just friendly ones that needs recognization.

As an experienced Energy Body Worker - specifically in Aura Cleansing and Chakra Balancing, I am often asked what a session entails.
First off, I need to make it clear, this is not a Reiki Session. I was a Master Reiki Practitioner for over 10 years and then retired and went back to my innate energy work since I've had as a child (as young as 7 years old).
First I will greet you at your home. We'll need to find a comfortable chair that you can relax in (easy chairs are great since you can lean back and raise your legs). If not a comfortable chair and an ottoman will be great. Be sure to make the 1 hour to 2 hour session undisturbed.
The chosen room's stale energy will be cleared with sage smudge (if you're sensitive to herbal smoke, I can use something else). Then I will smudge myself and then you. We'll discuss what physical, intellectual, emotional or spiritual issues that needs work on.
Then I will ask you to sit down and relax in the chair. You will be fully clothed but I do ask you to wear a loose fitting comfortable clean clothes. Most people tend to automatically close their eyes and some fall asleep. What I will be doing is typing up my scanning of your etheric field.
The ranges of sensations that I literally feel physically varies and it will be noted in your "Before" report.
The next step is with my hands - I will start cleaning your aura, and balancing your chakras.
I'll jot down some more notes of changes that has taken place. Lastily, also do cleansing on the back of your body.
I do a lot of combination of energy body work, shamanism, Inner Child Work, The Healing Codes, crystals, gems & stones and whatever Spirit tells me to do.
Afterwards, I will share the notes and we'll discuss the observations.
Please note that I am merely an observer and do not make diagnoses but will often try to explain what some energy fields felt, looked, acted like and share it with you.
By then I tend to pretty much know what to suggest for self-care after the session. It's entirely up to you to proceed with the self-care soul work or not.
My job as an aura cleanser and chakra balancer is to initiate a new chapter in your inner-life - the rest is up to you do proceed with inner healing homework of the PIES. I get asked often of how many sessions should they should have - it varies from person to person - normally a person will feel a dramatic shift for the better, when that happens -- then the frequent schedule can change to few times a year and then sometimes to 1 or 2 sessions a year. It depends on your comfort level, financial capacity and time.
Just like how a cellphone needs purging of old apps, or files or photos annually, so do we energy-wise.
I, personally, feel the need to have energy work on myself from another healer at least 2 to 3 times a year.
Please note, I do NOT cure people or animals of diseases, cancer or any chronic illnesses, etc - but a lot of people have noticed improvement in their psyche, emotional well being, and often times when an emotional release is allowed, bodily symptoms subside. To read the difference between healing and curing, go here. To understand how unexpressed or suppressed emotions can cause health problems, read this article here.
Now I hope you have a better idea of what to expect.
If you have further questions, feel free to email me and I'll be happy to answer them.
I promise to honor your privacy and to respect your physical and emotional boundaries.
Some of the work requires us being close proximity to each other. Let me know of your comfort level as it's very important you are to feel safe and comfortable.
Guests are welcome to attend and can help write down information to keep notes for future reference. Be aware that sensitive topics may arise and the person is comfortable witnessing some process work.
