“Elephants Never Lie”

Sedona healing author



One Woman’s Inner Journey to Release the Emotional Weight

With a feeling of ‘I can’t contain myself for such excitement!’, I just published my first book, Elephants Never Lie. It is a fictional novel about the empath Rebecca, a woman who over-does for others and has become so lost in despair that she has lost her way to happiness until she decides to write her own memoir. Writing her own story uncovers layers of pain and a subconscious mindset that holds her back so deeply that she falls into a past-life to learn more about herself and societal programs that lock us into suffering. To free herself from the unconscious hold of the past-life and from despair, Rebecca must own her gifts and find the inner determination to live a life based on her unique gifts without taking on negativity from others.

Please know that this book is based on real events and on a real transformation from broken to bold. This journey of consciousness is for those who are also on a spiritual path and looking within themselves for the keys to happiness.

Rebecca’s journey within herself and across worlds unlocks spiritual truths that awaken her out of despair and frees her into a life of love. The intention of the book is to do the same for the readers.

Elephants Never Lie relays true visits from loving beings and masters from other dimensions and my 1999 near-death experience in the hopes that the story, the love and the truth unlock the readers from any despair that they may be experiencing and motivate them to awaken their unique gifts in an act of self-love.

I’ll end by answering the question that so many people ask, “What is the elephant?”

The elephant is the subconscious and unconscious mind built up over lifetimes. It is hidden beliefs that we are not worthy of the absolute best or that suffering is normal in humanity.  These beliefs are our shadows that dim the light to our powerful selves. The ‘elephant’ is the consciousness of humanity that wants to keep individuals repressed, depressed weak and broken. It is a consciousness that allows people to take our power. It is time for the female within each being to reclaim their inner gifts and power. It is time to release the elephant.

A Date with Destiny

It was April 2011 and the orders were clear. No one on our corporate project could be going on vacation. We needed to plan for yet another 6 months (turned out to be another 18 months) of constant work. Most people worked 21 days straight and then took off 2 or 3 days before returning to this manufacturing start-up. I commonly did 28 days before having a little break, which consisted of doing laundry and kissing my kids, cats and dog before returning to work.

I was thoroughly exhausted and went to my computer to get away from the grunge for a few minutes. The thought popped into my head that I have to do something for myself. When I thought about what that would be, I first thought of going to Machu Picchu yet quickly realized that I was in no shape to be hiking any mountain.

Then I said to myself, if I can’t go to Machu Picchu, then I’d want to go to Bali. Knowing for certain that I could not take 4 days off of work, let alone 4 weeks, I went ahead and booked the $3000 airplane ticket anyways! I was going to be gone for 4 weeks and the trip was booked within the hour of my thought.

Perhaps I had gotten to a place of not-caring what happened. Perhaps I wanted my employers to fire me, so that I would force myself to move to Sedona and do what I came on Earth to do. Either way, the next month was truly a date with destiny.

I booked a first stop in Cincinnati to watch my son graduate from high school. A couple of days later I would be at the airport terminal with my daughter, as our flights left within 30 minutes of each other. She was heading to Italy with a Student Ambassador group while I was leaving to the beloved Bali . My return flight would be through San Francisco, so I could then drive to Lake Tahoe and end my month of defiance watching my son compete in the Fencing Nationals.

What I did not know is how I would get away with this at work. Oddly enough, it never seemed to worry me. I just felt that it would all work out. Instead of concerning myself with the outcome, I flowed with the calling of my soul. I met Ketut Liyer, made internationally famous by Elizabeth Gilbert’s book Eat, Pray Love. He spoke only of my gifts, and especially the gifts of the “male and female wrinkles between my eyes” and my writing. So I went back into a natural state, a state of harmony, that had long been withdrawn from me since the day I stepped into the corporate world. I trusted the wrinkles between my eyes, that I was given a ‘code’ to attract a loving partner. I trusted my writing. I stayed on the beach long after each setting of the sun and I just wrote my heart and soul. I completed Elephants Never Lie. I forgot about the possibility of being fired upon my return.

After I had booked that $3000 plane ticket, with no turning-back, events began conspiring that brought about my freedom. A critical piece of equipment broke down.
And it broke down again and again. Everyone had their run at it. Not a single fix worked. Then, just one week prior to my flight, the company decided to bring an outside experienced team to get the equipment running. They told us to spend a week at home resting, and here is the big one….starting the day of my flight.

That day of rest came. As I walked out of work, the “experienced outside team” walked in. We waved to each other in the understanding that they would see me and my team back in one week.

Instead, I had a month of decompression, relaxation, inspiration, rejuvenation and then love. I delighted in watching my son graduate and in throwing him a big party, while I decompressed out of stress-mode. Two and a half weeks in Bali relaxed my mind and reignited my inspiration. Then finally rejuvenated by doing nothing but watch my son succeed in his art and enlivened by spending time with him on that wonderful, brutally cold lake, I re-embodied myself. I found love.

A month later I returned to work, after not having a single contact with that depressing and expiring part of my life. I quietly walked to the main doors, past hundreds of beefed-up trucks and squawking sounds of steam bursting from packs. And there they were. As I approached the main doors, the ‘outside experienced team’ was walking out toward the parking lot. We waved at each other. They had been working on the equipment for a month, not just one week. They had arrived the day of my departure; they departed on the day of my arrival.

I did not consciously know anything about these dates. The fix on the critical piece of equipment had taken a month. The Universe knew this critical piece of data for my purpose. The Universe had inspired me that day that I bought the ticket. The Universe and my soul had reminded me that the courage to do something for myself would ensure that everything worked out brilliantly for all involved.

Welcome to My Winding Road, a Journey with Spirit

Iceland Winding RoadThe path may be long and winding, yet ushers us to our greater good! We are not living a journey; we are the journey.

You are a journey. You are being born into greatness. Each moment is a chance to take that step into who you are to become. Each moment is a chance to give birth to another bit of our authentic self.

Words can’t describe the immensity of truth that I saw in my near-death-experience, yet I try to put this into words so that the truth wins.

Ego wants to steal our chance to step into greatness. It does not want us to remember from where we come.  It does not want us to become great because it will die. The ego is not a single creation of one mind, one person. The ego was created by the collective consciousness and we have each tapped into a piece of it, identifying with it and believing in its repressiveness. Let go of what does not serve you. If the path is winding, it’s winding.  Whatever shows up is still the chance to remember the Light that you are.

My blogs are to remind people who they truly are. Spirit. My blogs are to help individuals remember their greatness. My blogs are to help get the ego out of the way so that the path clears and the curves straighten. My blogs are to remind that we are in control of the path.

This blog is a start. It’s a bit about my winding road. I hope you recognize some of yourself in it.

I wrote my first book while working 80 to 100 hours per week in the corporate world.  My heart wanted to put the workings of my soul into words.  My ego wanted to make money.  Therefore, I did both while yearning to move to Sedona, Arizona where I could write and heal, write and heal, write and heal.   I did move to Sedona and instead of writing and healing, I worked.  Well, Sedona forces the healing, the ‘waking up’ whether a person is doing their soul-calling or not. So, I have been healing, but now I’m focused on only the workings of my soul. As I do this, I’ll watch the Universe bring the money to be able to eat at the restaurants that my ego loves.  And, I’ll watch my ego diminish so that I have space to blossom.  These blogs are my ramblings of amazing events of the past, present and future that are the weaving of the Divine.  There is no separation between us and the Divine. We can either choose to retract and feel needy or fearful, or we can step up and claim the energies of the Divine weaving through us. This weaving got me here now, brought amazing beings into my life, from 3rd dimension and higher, and some day I’ll see my winding road as an airplane runway.

It all started where I grew up, in a small town north of Cincinnati, Ohio called Waynesville.  Waynesville may be the most haunted town in Ohio, as one book sites over 30 haunted houses, yet it doesn’t mention the house in which I grew up.  In retrospect, the ground on which my childhood home sat seems like a portal.  ‘Hauntings’ and the presence of other-wordly beings was almost daily.  Well into my teen years I had to sleep with all of my bedroom lights on, plus the stereo and the television just to drown out the noises of the spirits.  Some spirits were just attached to that land and living out some sort of life in another dimension. Yet some spirits were what I consider Masters (beings of a Light transcendent to the Earth) and it is these Masters that continue to drive me today.

I also had premonition dreams, especially of myself much later in life. Yet, the majority of my dreams were of places I had never seen before, not even on TV, such as cobblestone streets in little cramped villages not likened to the America in which I lived.  I later came to understand that the dreams were past-lives and mainly places and spaces in which I sort of left myself off.  Parts of me had become stuck from traumas in other lives.  Those traumas were being re-created in this life unconsciously in order to regain parts of myself.

One such issue was losing a kidney at the age of 11 and having severe back pain by the age of 13.  I refused to wear a back brace and instead decided to be done with all of these reoccurring pains in my 20’s.  I took up yoga and meditation and all symptoms were gone in 6 months. I became a Usui and Karuna Reiki Master and a fire-walking instructor.   I had teachers for the Reiki, such as William Rand from the International Center for Reiki Training.  My teachers for meditation and yoga were only Masters in Spirit who would randomly make a guiding-appearance. 

So, my passion for healing from the inside out began.  My understanding of soul-healing is deep and universal since I went through it all myself with only help from the Masters in dimensions much higher than our own.

I have been doing Soul-Healing and Reiki for over 25 years and now focus on group-healing, especially through books and seminars. Elephants Never Lie has been published and two more books are in the works for 2020. Both titles will be revealed in early 2020. The Elephants series is fictional novels that lead people through emotions to untangle subconscious fears and return to freedom, the essence of soul-power. Each book in the Elephant series contains a true memoir of a person who has gone from broken to bold.

My winding road did include 14 years in science and research, with 11 of those years in the corporate world.  I appreciate that, as it taught me well.

And today from Sedona, I focus on leading others out of those dark areas of the consciousness that is hiding their inner light. I help them to get in touch with their souls, with their own Spirit and with Mother Earth through private and group sessions, writings, events and journeys.

I will end with the hearts of my heart.  I am a mother to 2 amazing adult children, a son and a daughter, many cats (all passed) and one dog (recently passed).  There is nothing more heart-warming than laughing with my children and of course watching them expand, grow, succeed and mainly LOVE. I live with the love of my life and soul-mate, a gentle, caring man who entered my life as described in Elephants Never Lie.

Thank you for reading about me and I send you all the best and Love on your spectacular journey! May all of the good that you have given others, be returned to you in spades!
