This weekend’s time was time spent well and exactly the energy needed to fuel this new week ahead. We never know what adventure the day will bring, but we follow where inspiration leads and it takes us where we need to be. It was one of my favorite weekends filled with new explorations beginning with a new hike up a river and waterfall on Friday, returning the next day to relax and read, riverside and lakeside, and then finishing off with yesterday’s epic new trail of ancient and expansive energies.
Mystical, magickal and majestic were just some of the words to describe yesterday’s discovery, although words don’t do what was seen and felt justice. To say it was otherworldly, ancient and transporting is an understatement too, but these Sentinels (the name given to these ancient rocks) were amazing and have much to share.
The trail heading up was full of wildflowers, mysterious forest, and the epic vistas were incredible. This area and these ancient stones are amazing. We’ll definitely return to spend more time soaking in the energies and visions, dive deeper, and extend the hike for the even larger loop, but glad we went now as the wildflowers were in full bloom, which added to the enchantment.
Talk about rich, deep Terra energy and retrieving embedded parts. I actually saw a super sparkly spot atop these rocks that was reflecting like a mirror to the sun’s rays. It radiated like a small beacon and I knew something was there and calling to me, but I decided to leave it a mystery for now and return to explore again or in dream time. I will not forget.
However, it also reminded me that the gems of wisdom lie within us and are there when we need them to draw upon. We have a well of yet unearthed treasures awaiting our invitation to dance with them.
After some deep earthing on the trail yesterday, we then enjoyed another new spot that was a perfect balance to the potent core energies. It was refreshing to soak my dirt-enriched feet in and nourishing for a lakeside picnic.
I find that spirit always guides us to where is most supportive to be and where the perfect blend of energies can be received in our soul well to draw upon for upcoming experiences.
This is certainly true for the full week ahead, as I handle some goals, clear the way for new energies, but also draw upon that soul well for this weekend’s first online Reiki training installment with the fifteen beautiful people ready to go that next step.
These times have been challenging for many to feel rooted because so much is up in the air around us. It has also been hard to remain centered and have that sense of peaceful connection and alignment with the heart and soul guidance you may have felt more clearly before.
Once again, Nature can help with all of this and every time I’m out immersed in the different energies, it is very easy to feel the difference and see where things can be adjusted to keep in balance and flow.
And especially for those of you who feel more inward right now, or in general as your life preference, as well as those of you who struggle to find the external outlets for your more active and fiery drives, Nature isn’t a luxury, but as important as the food and water you need.
You can experience the unseen universal life force that flows between everything when you engage in nature with presence and heart awareness. It isn’t the only way, but it is one way of making the subtle and visceral, more tangible and conscious.
This universal life force energy is Reiki and it’s no wonder that I’m drawn to immerse so much in Nature to support and anchor alignment to this way of life consistently.
It’s also no wonder that such deep Nature experiences were drawn our way this weekend before diving into the upcoming Reiki training.
I always find that these experiences, when embraced, can help to open another layer within us and it is just such a layer I feel is needed for supporting the group during these strange, but potentially rich times.
There is no coincidence that so many are feeling called to open new layers within and step up and into the world in more empowered ways.
I’m grateful and honored to be a part of the activation taking place across the globe through Reiki, which not only is such a powerful tool for personal support, but its collective reach can be astounding. And in these days of distancing, there couldn’t be a greater time for tapping into a channel for embodied activism, which Reiki can support so that we don’t feel helpless and we can offer our gifts to others regardless of where and who we are in the world.
I love seeing people ready to raise their vibration and I get excited to see people actively tapping into their gifts and toolbox (like with Reiki), engaging them to create the world they want to see.
AND I get super excited when people courageously step into an active teaching role to support others to be empowered. This is an example of the ripple effect of how one can touch the many.
It’s how we remember who we are and the Source from which we are expressions of.
I’m reminded of Friday’s trail that took us up the river and waterfall. I shared this on Instagram, but will end by resharing it here.
The rock steps we ascended next to the waterfall reminded me of steps I once climbed to the high temples atop cliffs overlooking the ocean and of incredible stellar architecture high above cratered water passageways. The waters around us here are infused with the essence of long ago. It’s a reason I feel such resonance, as the water carries parts of me I retrieve when in and with them. Water is life and as a Pisces it soothes my soul to hear the whispers it carries and washes over me. And then the visions and memories begin.
From the stars their liquid minds converge with mine. I can hear their songs inside my heart. Their enormity envelops me like a nebula bursting with interstellar brilliance and yet their deep and elusive howls, although eerie like the planets themselves, are light and ethereal like a feather floating at my center. Like whistling helium their spouts blow cosmic essence into the atmosphere, infusing harmony for all to breathe. As I feel each silky mass move with grace through the space between worlds, I hear them whisper, “come back to us.”
I likely won’t post again until next week, as I have things calling my attention to focus on, especially in attuning to the group class beginning Sunday. But I wanted to share the inspiration of the weekend as visual and/or energetic support for your week as well.
Wishing everyone a day and week ahead of new possibilities.
~ For anyone who feels called to further your Reiki journey during these potent times, you may still be able to register for the levels you haven’t completed yet. Reiki Level 1 is full, however, and the others are close to capacity. Contact me if you have questions or to discuss your journey with this to see if it is a good fit. Remember that a tool unused is an opportunity overlooked. If you’re looking to create more peace, alignment, overall well-being, bring through more creativity and clarity, support others or global change and healing, support the creation of something new in your life, are looking to create a new soul path with your work that is supported by distancing guidelines, etc. then this may be a path for you.

I write this from the Forest Portal’s surprise Spring snow day, again reflecting how things shift moment-to-moment. Yesterday was special because it marked what would have been Cosmo’s (my sweet rabbit boy) fourteenth Earth birthday and on his day, as I do always with all of my dear ones’ special days, we communed through nature. Our adventure hike in Washoe Indian area was a revisit of one we only introduced ourselves to part of a couple of weeks ago for the first time with intention to complete it.
We decided on a picnic hike (above photo in a field of blooming bitterbrush was our chosen rest spot) for the nearly eight miles of exploration, which not only graced us with a solo journey without seeing a human the whole time, but proved my words before we left to be foretelling of the gifts Cosmo would bring forth for us.
I said out loud to Dave, “I wonder what Cosmo will gift us this time? What messages does he have? What animals might we see, what feather might he leave?” Well, the wildly windy day (feeling like 50 mile an hour winds at times) with a mist of faery rain drops keeping us cool, but never wet, spoke of their own purposeful, timely messages and nurturing alongside the unusual sightings.
The only companions were coyote crossing our path with a black tipped tail, raven flying overhead with a snake in its mouth, and a huge pile of the most gorgeous feathers from a Sooty Grouse with peacock tipped iridescence in gold, bronze, green, blue, purple, and pink but no body, bones or blood around – just stunning plumes. Minutes later I found a longer feather you can see pictured below with the others from a different bird – maybe hawk or osprey?
I knew each sighting was a gift and omen that I was to receive from Cosmo so I honored the bird and wrapped the ones I was called to, gently in my shirt. Being an area the Washoe Indians frequented, created extra reverence for this bird, and the gift Cosmo had brought through the Universe to me. Many Plains Indian tribes used to honor these birds with a Grouse Dance. My dance will be a sacred ritual of intention and creation this week onward, lighting each step with newly infused perspective and energy.
The photos don’t do the colors justice when the sunlight hits them, but I was told I’ll be creating something sacred with these at some point and they are a gift for imagining and manifesting that beauty.
They carry a message of personal power, protection, purpose, centering, grounding, harnessing energy for clearly defined goals, the sacred spiral for vision and enlightenment with the Great Mystery, sacred and rhythmic movement and harmonized dance within Earth’s cycles for higher awareness, creation of selfless beauty, ceasing external movement for inner life realization, and new rhythms, teachings, creations, and rituals to lead you into new dimensions.
Once abundant, grouse are now less prolific, but its feathers sure speak to abundance, beauty, and rituals that bridge Cosmos and Earth. This beautiful being somehow feels like an extended hand of clarity and connection to help me integrate the new and bring through what I’ve struggled with expressing.
And lastly, right before the hike ended three very cosmic-like deer crossed our path and just kept watching us without fear. I thought at first they were all female, but one walked out before they leaped gracefully away and it had tiny antlers growing about three inches or so – a boy! I knew right away this was Cosmo, Joy and Nestor – my rabbit soul family has often showed up in deer form when no one else is around.
In Glacier National Park, two cosmic deer had shown up after Joy’s transition – they were Nestor and Joy, as Cosmo was still with us. Yesterday Cosmo joined the girls and their showing up through the portal of unusual energies and signs felt like they were opening a new doorway for me. There may be some twists and turns as things transform, but a promise invites me – both a new one and a reminder of the old one I made. There’s that sacred spiral that grouse speaks of.
Much of the day reminded me of the adventures we had with Cosmo and Joy while in the Magick Bus for 1 1/2 years – similar vistas, memories popping up of favorite places this reminded me of, that in between-worlds energy, nobody else around, similar sightings including grouse and cosmic deer, and strange but interesting weather.
I’m still reflecting on the messages of these signs he sent, as there feels to be a story he’s sharing through them of things upcoming. A spiral dance in motion of bringing me back to center.
I also received clarification yesterday around another change. Cosmo has a very clear way of coming through since he departed on Halloween/Samhain when the veils are thinnest.
Although I won’t regularly be teaching Reiki anymore, it came through that I can and will offer just one class per each level of Reiki this year.
It might be an ongoing, once yearly offering, but for now it’s something I’ve opened to because of the state of things in the world where energetic upgrades would be beneficial, and due to inquiries both spoken and unspoken. I get a lot of messages from people on the energetic levels, so I’m putting this out there in case it speaks to you.
I’ve created a separate page with some information and how you can register.
I’ll be opening the Reiki training to online availability only, likely via Zoom, but maybe Skype to only 6 participants for each class.
These will not be starting until August, as I need time to focus on current and new projects, as well as the new changes in my life upcoming that Cosmo is also hinting at and conveying importance in timing of.
I have a very busy few months of client sessions, book cover painting for an author, writing, wedding details, record keeping for our side business, and channeling new information coming through in an anchored way. I feel some large changes on the horizon that my current projects are stepping stones toward, which makes them integral to complete.
So, the page will not have specific dates in the months proposed. That is something I will finalize once I see who actually commits to and confirms their participation, as I will then be able to communicate with the group and customize and optimize days and times for the whole.
You’ll have the ability to register with deposit, or in full on the page below.
Please contact me with any questions, to discuss your unique path, and/or individual specific needs at the contact link on this page too, so I can know how to support you best:
FYI: If you contact me and don’t hear back from me in a day or two, please check your spam folder because I’ve had a lot of people find my emails there for some reason. You can also check back with me again in a couple of days if you don’t hear from me and I’ll message you a different way if needed.
I mentioned in my blog post yesterday that with me having some downtime while my book is being reviewed, I have the ability to create and offer just a few fun things, although I will still be immersed in other layers of steps upcoming for my project. This opened the ability to put out a few inspired offerings (I’m always listening) you can read about below that excite me, are aligned in how I feel, and that I know would be of benefit currently with everyone’s journey, as well as feel supportive to my creative energy.
I plan to utilize this time to finish creating my personal, magick staff and in seeing that I have three pieces of prepared wood all ready to go, I felt called to offer three magick crystal wands (you likely remember these from last year) to anyone who wants a little extra amplification and focus with your power and intents. Wands can help you to harness your power, direct it, and increase the flow.
I will be channeling them, as I get their energies coming through, so will not be posting them as completed wands to choose from, but rather as mystery wands you can feel into and choose accordingly. For some, price may be your leading factor of choice, and for others, you may feel what each will be manifesting as and that will be your resonance.
You can choose your magick crystal wand below, by purchasing through the link of choice.
Shipping and handling will be a separate invoice, once your order is ready to ship and destination/packaging cost is all compiled.
Mystery Magick Crystal Wand #1 ~ $111 – SOLD
Mystery Magick Crystal Wand #2 – $177
Mystery Magick Crystal Wand #3 – $222
I only have three pieces of wood and only have enough time to create them, so no, I won’t be doing more at this time, as I would have to have wood find me in the forest and also need another window of opportunity. This is it for right now.
The next offering is a Reiki Healing Attunement to receive a zap of support.
I don’t offer Reiki sessions or Attunements anymore, except in the last Reiki Workshops I’ve been teaching this Summer in terms of Initiation Attunements. So, this is a special and surprise opportunity if it calls to you.
With a small window of time on my hands, these fit perfectly and also align with what I sense could be an extra boost for people in the midst of shifts, healing, changes, wanting more alignment, ability to see the opportunities, gain greater clarity in general, support courage, creativity, and anything you want to enhance or bring forth more, help reveal and clear blocks, open doors, add increased magick to your current trajectory, etc.
I use these all the time for myself and Dave and I always stress to pass students who know how to do these, not to forget to actually utilize this tool, as they are super potent. Every time I do one, the intentions I have, one-by-one start happening – sometimes immediately. I like to keep a list of the things and check them off as they come true. Pretty incredible.
So, if this speaks to you, or you were wanting one – as I know a few of you have contacted me because you were interested and at the time I wasn’t available – then here it is.
I will only be making this available to 5 people, as that feels most aligned for me.
You can purchase your Reiki Healing Attunement below and then please get in touch with me via my CONTACT page to let me know your name, location, some options of good times for us to tune in together for this where you can be open to receiving peacefully and mindfully, and your intents for it and then we’ll be ready to go.
Reiki Healing Attunement ~ $55 – ALL SPACES FILLED
And last, we have some very special crystal beings that are ready to have new guardians, as our time has come full circle. I’ve been moving through things fast and so I don’t hoard crystals simply because I love them. I love them enough to know they have service to do and want them to keep moving their energy like I am.
Here are the 3 crystals currently available, which will all be Reiki infused and charged before heading off to you from the Forest Portal:
Earth & Cosmos Fluorite ~ $155 – SOLD
This incredible Fluorite is like nothing I’ve seen and truly embodies the essence of bringing together and merging Earth and Cosmos – as the bottom half is this exquisite layered journey through Earth’s womb in the brown and the top half is this ethereal experience of violet and white. Within each there are remnants of both interlaced, creating balance. And then we find sparks of rainbow and one larger one at top.
Harmony within and without. It stands 8 1/2 inches tall and about 3 inches at widest.
The colors will intensify and become more subtle as you have it with you. I love how crystals constantly shift.
Sacred Geometry Ocean Jasper Sphere ~ $44 – SOLD
This incredible Ocean Jasper sphere with portals and amazing naturally infused sacred circles in perfect geometric synergy throughout (hard to capture, but you can kind of see one of these in two of the photos above, including a reflection of Eeyore from my shirt – hehe). You’ll have fun discovering all of them, as they are very faint unless the right light and perspective reveals them. Amazing! I love that this crystal’s energy feels merging of Water and Earth, has that nature, Faery, and heart-centered aura with a zap of joyous empowerment.
It is a 2 inch sphere in mossy green, yellow green, and yellow. Looks like an Otherworldly planet.
Here’s a link on its properties: Ocean Jasper
Golden Ray Selenite Cosmic Blossom ~ $222 – SOLD
- Also known as Golden Ray Selenite
- This particular kind comes from Canada
- It’s a completely natural formation that will carry the energy of Selenite, but with additional metaphysical properties due to its golden essence
- Is a powerful, beautiful, and high vibrational crystal known to call in the highest frequency of white light and the Golden Ray of Buddha
- Some say it stores Ancient Priestess teachings and can be used for a variety of metaphysical purposes – making them excellent for any healing environment
- Connects to the Solar Plexus, Third Eye, Heart, and Crown Chakras – helps to integrate, open, and activate
- Supports creative manifesting from your heart
- Directs your will in a loving, joyful manner
- Assists you to create your reality based on intention, trust, and joyful wisdom
- Helps you to become attuned to, and harmonized with, your soul purpose for this lifetime
- Focuses on joy, manifestation, and creation/creative energies and is really good for digestive issues and addictions, as the dis-ease of one’s will
I love both the inner Earth and Cosmic essence it embodies, which makes sense since Selenite is an embodiment of “As Above, So Below”.
It is a little over 3 inches tall and a little over 2 1/2 inches wide. It shifts in color all the time from lemony yellow, deeper yellows, and indoors and without light almost yellow green.
This is a very rare and unique specimen of this crystal – WOW!!! It’s like holding a star from the Cosmos in your hand.
Since I continue to move rapidly through things, there may be more in the coming weeks or months, but these are the three that jumped out right now.
Upcoming/Last Workshop Reminders:

This is a busy week for me, as I’m preparing to teach my last Reiki 1 & 2 Workshop, am completing phase 1 of my book, and am immersed in things this Summer Solstice week including the Gratitude Giveaway and the early pre-pay discount for our Fall Equinox Workshop concluding in just 3 days – we will be over 1/2 full on Summer Solstice so if you’d like to reserve your spot and save $77, you can do so on or before June 21st. This is an intimate gathering so space is being limited to join us here in magickal Lake Tahoe for the first and last co-taught workshop Laura Bruno and I will be sharing and officially my last workshop in this format.
You can register here: Living a More Magickal Life

You can register for it here: Reiki 3 Master Teacher Workshop
That’s a little update for those of you who have expressed interest in these, so you don’t miss out on the savings and joining, in general, as they are the last I’m offering.
I thought I would end by sharing my first magnificent iris that bloomed recently, as she symbolizes so much of what I’m hearing from others and experiencing myself right now.
Isn’t she a work of art? Every detail etched with intent and imagined from her heart.
She births of inspiration and sings of grace. I love the rainbow and light energy that show up in these photos around her.
She embodies the creative spark and vitality of Nature within. Her fragrance is Cosmic and illuminates for all willing to journey with her into the womb of essence.
So many people right now are following their dreams, committing to them, and taking the action that ultimately results in manifestation – myself included, which kicks off with my book I’ve been working on with full dedication.
I just heard from a dear friend today about her new business launching in full motion, and I was so excited to learn how I was a part of that. I also corresponded with another friend sharing with me his dream that he believes in despite what other’s think, and I encouraged him to keep that mindset and go for it.
Yes, it takes focus and dedication, but if you truly want something you will do what you can in any way to bring that into being.
I’ll leave you with this quote about if you feel a dream tugging at you and you don’t know the how:
“So if you have something that you know you should do, something you feel you should attempt, and you feel it down to your marrow, down to your soul, but you have not done it yet because you are waiting, waiting for things to fall in place, waiting for the stars to align before you move forward, then I challenge you to commit to it. I challenge you to take a step that makes it impossible for you not to try. I challenge you to throw your hat over the fence.” ~John Kitsteiner
Just a quick share to update you on a few things. Today being June 1st brings us closer to a lot of dates to keep in mind for upcoming and last workshop offerings and also saw Astrid’s ears fully healed. I ended May with greater clarity on the path I’m journeying, as well as received a clarifying eye update – more on that shortly.
So, first things first….June 9th – just 8 days away now – is the last day to register for the upcoming Reiki 1 & 2 Accelerated Workshop on Saturday, June 23rd. If you want to review this workshop as a past student, please also let me know to make sure I can accommodate you.
If you’re thinking about continuing your training with the Reiki 3 Master Teacher Workshop, then the pre-registration discount date for that is July 4th, although you can register for it up until August 11th at full price for this August 25th Workshop. Again, if you are wanting to review this workshop, please also let me know, as space is limited.
Info and registration available for both of these Workshops here: Reiki
If you do want to join and are traveling in, just keep in mind Summer is busy here, so accommodations are something to look into as soon as you can. I already heard from one of the students traveling in how this was limited even when she registered a month ago. For those of you who have registered, I’ll be in touch around the 9th with further info.
That brings us to the upcoming Summer Solstice, which not only marks the one year anniversary of Astrid and me being together – as she came home to me on this potent portal – but is also the early pre-registration discount date for the upcoming Fall Equinox Workshop. Final registration for this is September 15th, but you can prepay for only $222 by June 21st – that’s only 20 days away now.
This is sure to be magickal experience, as the incredible Laura Bruno and I come together for the first and last time to co-teach together – and marks my last teaching offering all around.
We will tailor this intimate workshop to the day’s participants, sharing varied ways and channels that can assist you in experiencing and creating a more consistently magickal life, as you experience things in greater wholeness of possibilities. In turn, this reveals a more authentic and creative way of living in alignment and manifesting more, as a result. Topics may include the Faerie Realm, crystals, connecting with animals, nature and beyond, and more, which will be revealed as the day unfolds. We’ll conclude with sacred nature immersion, a special joint energy blessing by both Tania and me, and an Equinox ceremony.
I sense some interesting unfolding for this, as we dial and tune in. I can’t say for sure what my part is revealing, but I may be led to conclude my teaching with a surprise. Hmmm!
Anyway, you can register here: Living A More Magickal Life
We are 1/3 full with current registrations and one registration upcoming – which will leave 8 spots.
Summer Solstice, as mentioned, is also very dear to me and Astrid in bringing us together, but is also when my sweet Joy returned to the stars. Because of this special time period I decided to get Astrid something special to celebrate.
I found a sweet plush rabbit mat that I had monogrammed with a blue “A” for Astrid, or as her auntie Laura said – “A” for Adorable! She deserves velvety softness fit for a Queen. It arrived yesterday, just in time to kick off June in celebration.
I can’t wait to see what she thinks of her birthday gifts that will arrive in August in time for her 9/15 birthday!!
I do love Summer and Summer Solstice has become a favorite magickal portal to me.
Her new rabbit mat also celebrated Astrid’s healthy and tuned in rabbit ears, as this morning on June 1st, we also paid a visit to our favorite rabbit vet for a recheck after a week of giving her meds for her ears. You may remember my mentioning she had a build up of wax in both, her left creating a plug, and then redness and beginnings of infection. Well, she’s all good! No redness or infection, ear drums are healthy, and she only had a tiny bit of residual wax that she received a not-so-fun ear flush again for today. She’s home and happy to be so, but despite loving our sweet vet, we are both happy she doesn’t have to return until her next regular check up in July. Yay! So her plush mat becomes twofold in celebration!
And lastly, I mentioned clarity and my eyes…I have traversed some decisions and explorations this last month and did anchor in some more, feeling clear with heart desires. And synchronously, just two days ago I, like Astrid, had a recheck at the ophthalmologist. Recheck after 15+ years that is!
I had lasik done then and it was a huge success – I’m grateful for that as I know and have heard of many unsuccessful and even horror stories.
I haven’t seen an eye doctor since and recently I’ve felt so many eye shifts and interesting vision, which mirrors all the shifts in life experience and timelines, but at times it has been straining on my eyes and so I felt to check in just in case – as after all these are my eyes, which could change my life in the event of anything.
I’m happy to report, as with Astrid, that my eyes are healthy and that lasik really was quite a miracle for me. Many experience reverse shifts in their eyesight changes after surgery around 40-45. I’m only now starting to experience this at 45, but only in small increments. My surgery gave me 20/15 eye sight and has increased with hawk-like precision….so much so I’ve been living a very surreal life since surgery that has seemed like another person’s eyes and different realities to me, as to what was reality. I’ve never felt like these were my eyes and also felt like I had vision to see things differently and more than most, acting hawk-like in fact and not just in clarity.
Now, my eyes are starting to shift but only putting me at 20/20-20/25, without need to wear glasses nor would DMV make it mandatory. The doctor said I can fill my prescription (which would put me back at 20/15 vision) only by personal preference or if I want to give any eye strain some reprieve. At this point I haven’t filled it, as just going to him gave me reprieve actually and that little extra crispness doesn’t bother me at this time to have.
I found out both my near and far sight are shifting (I used to be near sighted before surgery and was told I would likely reverse to far sighted later in life). My left eye seems a little worse, which seems symbolic.
However, I also have a slight astigmatism starting – something new for my eyes – which makes each eye focus differently. This is actually what put to rest things for me, as it accounted for the eye strain in trying to figure out how to focus. Yet, since I learned of what was actually happening and why I was experiencing what I did, it clicked something in my brain and connected something too, so I’ve felt a softening and there’s this instant eye to brain connection now that has relieved strain.
I’ve always known I was bilateral, and now it appears my eyes are too, and in bringing brain and eyes together, it’s almost like this natural adjustment is happening and clicking together the parts of brain and the eyes in a way that makes sense and feels better!
Of course, I’ll continue to feel out if any strain or challenge develops, at which point I will fill a prescription as I do actually like glasses. 😉
So, there is greater sense of balance for both Astrid and myself…her with her ears and me with my eyes, and for now we both don’t need anything further, as we continue this magickal journey together with greater empowerment to navigate the way.
Just a heads up that I’m in the process of making changes to prepare for what’s upcoming, as well as to close doors on the old. I found it synchronous that today, as I made the phone calls and took the steps to put these in motion, was actually the day seven years ago that I first released my e-book version of Spiritual Skin. It wasn’t long after, that I then made available the hard copy and kindle version and today I’ve put in motion releasing that associated website and email address for my book, altogether. I’ve also released my old Tania Marie website and now you can access this blog via either domains of www.taniamarie.com or the current you know of www.taniamarieartist.wordpress.com.
For now, I’m keeping my associated email address for that domain name, as it’s connected to too many things I don’t have time and focus to handle currently, but you will not be able to contact me via the Spiritual Skin email.
While the website for this first book I self-published will no longer be, you will still be able to purchase copies on Amazon – the only way to do so going forward.
Extra reiteration that that part of my life had come full circle were reflected in at least two books I know of that came out after mine – one that actually used my book title in theirs coming out almost 2 years later – and one recently that came out last year that ironically I was sent by the author’s marketing help to potentially review. I haven’t yet been able to read the book, but in scanning it, I was intrigued how similar it was to my own.
We are all collectively connected and tapping into the same pool of energy, but my time swimming there I now release to others.
That, in and of itself, feels like a huge refresh and reset.
You may have also noticed that I’ve deleted nearly all the pages of this blog site as well, and it now only contains my blog sharing and general and contact info.
So, those are some big changes that feel good, with more in time to come.
I continue to receive requests on things now and then, as I can’t delete everything out there in the world-wide web, but I’ve remained focused on only what resonates to move forward with. I am grateful to have a small network of referrals I can recommend to people in need and whom I’m unable to support at this time. Unfortunately, I don’t have recommendations of tattoo designers, but I do know wonderful tattoo artists I’ve personally worked with who are tapped in and create wonderful pieces. I always highly recommend taking time to search people out with intention, as you’ll always be led to the perfect person.
That brings me to the last Summer and Fall workshops that I’m offering.
I received some questions that I wanted to share my answer to for everyone, in order to clarify things if in fact you were curious as well.
Although I will not be offering classes anymore after August’s Reiki ones, I’m committed for life to provide support and answer questions for all of my students. I know that there was concern that if someone took my Reiki workshop they wouldn’t have what they called “mentorship” with this since I wasn’t teaching, but my ceasing to teach does not close the door on past students who have need for support with questions.
My students are always able to contact me for that. I’m simply not going to be attuning NEW students after August. I hope that is clarifying for anyone who had concern.
That said, in two weeks from this Saturday will be the last opportunity to register for June 23rd’s Reiki 1 & 2 Accelerated Workshop. June 9th is the deadline for that. So if you’re on the fence, that’s just a little reminder date to keep note of.
You still have opportunity to pre-register at discount for the August 25th Reiki 3 Master Teacher Workshop, as that deadline is July 4th with final registration ringing in on August 11th.
All info and registration can be found here: Summer 2018 Workshops
As for the Fall Equinox “Living a More Magickal Life” with Laura Bruno and myself, that pre-registration deadline to receive discount is coming up on June 21st Summer Solstice. The workshop is 1/3 full. Final registration is September 15th.
All details and registration can be found here: Living a More Magickal Life
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported my journey and to everyone who has invited me along on theirs. ❤
Everything evolves whether we flow with that or not and my way with this is to go with the current, rather than fight it. Some have been inquisitive about all of my changes and dropping services and channels of my expression over the last couple of years, which may have seen to come on suddenly, but in fact has been a natural evolution. I still field requests about services I used to offer, as there’s no way to delete info completely off the web, but the way to close doors is to know my boundaries and move fully into the new. I know when the time is up on something, as there will be a shift of energy in the reservoir of my heart that speaks louder than any outside element. While I’m grateful for interest in things I have offered, that does not reflect to me what my heart knows is best. There’s no amount of money or praise that can make me do what is against my inner knowing.
And right now, I’m being asked to challenge myself in new ways that not only speak deeply to my current heart’s joy, but raise my own vibration by stepping out of comfort zones and being willing to embrace growing pains.
I’ve reflected this week on the gift teaching has been to my life and how much I was taught in the process. It is one of the most life-changing experiences I’ve gone through and one of the most meaningful in terms of things I’ve done up until now. It completely shifted me into a whole new vibration, but it also brought full circle closure to a soul path I’ve been on for lifetimes.
The workshops and retreats I’ve put my heart fully into have been such beautiful experiences and truly brought out the best in me by vulnerably putting myself into a place of learning in the moment, and helped me to see myself through a different lens, while growing exponentially.
I was moved to joyful tears in seeing faces of everyone in photos from some of our workshops and retreats and knowing where they are now and how lucky I am to call these incredible people friends. Teaching connected me to soul family and I know that was a big part of a lot of the things I have done, to bring us together in the perfect alignment that would ignite remembrance within for all.
It makes these last three workshops I’ll be teaching, bitter sweet and yet perfect full circle gifts. I’m in awe of the people I have had opportunity to be in connection with and to witness the blossoming that has taken place for each. I’m grateful to have been able to walk with each of you for some small part of your lives. I’ve only seen who each person really is and not the stories that first walked in the door.
I’m looking forward to these last workshops for many reasons and will post reminders until their registration dates end, or they fill completely.
Here are the updates on availability:
As of right now there are officially only 3 spaces remaining in our Reiki 1 & 2 workshop on June 23rd. I do have 2 potentials, so there’s possibility of that filling. If you’ve wanted to join as a past student to review, you’ll need to let me know as well by June 9th.
Reiki 3 Master Teacher isn’t until August 25th, but pre-registration is July 4th to keep in mind for discounts. There are a couple of new students intending to register and a review student, so just something to keep in mind.
However, although the Fall Equinox workshop “Living a More Magickal Life” co-taught with Laura Bruno isn’t until September 22nd, it IS officially a quarter full already and may move faster. Pre-registration is June 21st to keep in mind for discounts. I sense a lot percolating for this workshop beyond what we’ve described in the details, as I’m listening to what is most pertinent to bring forth for this last workshop. Sure to be potent and filled with cosmic surprises.
It’s been a huge honor to support authentic empowerment, awareness, the raising of vibrations, and to help spread healing love and greater compassion via this channel. I look forward to meeting everyone who feels called to join us.
The weather is already warming up here (in the 60’s since Easter), although could snow at a moment’s notice. That’s what I love about mountain life, is the quick changes that take place, mirroring my preferred process. Immersing yourself in nature brings about peace within a person and creates the perfect backdrop and nurturing for Reiki and cultivating an amazing awareness of your own inner self and essence, while providing the channel for accessing your own guidance system.
We are so busy with “stuff” we fill our lives with that we forget to slow down and enjoy the peace of nature.
As mentioned, I am creating two days of Reiki workshops this Summer to help you tune into the nature of you, slow down and step out of life’s madness, while being supported by the beautiful energy of Lake Tahoe and our Forest Portal.
These will be the only opportunities to learn Reiki with me this year. So if it has been speaking to you, 2018 might be the time of profound change you’ve been wanting in your life.
These will be group workshops for locals to the surrounding areas or anyone wanting to travel and enjoy Lake Tahoe’s beauty and magick, while receiving your certification. You could make a weekend of it and use the other day to integrate in nature and allow the natural world to nurture you.
After great deliberation, I’m going to be offering my usual Reiki 1 & 2 Accelerated workshop and a Reiki 3 Master Teacher workshop, as I still feel that the people called to me are ready for bigger leaps and I want to provide the most tools I can to support that. So rather than break up Reiki 1 & 2 into two days, this will provide the needed elements in a fully packed day. It also feels more supportive to any potential travel attendees.
There will be a minimum requirement for the workshops, since I’m only offering this once this year, they are a lot of work to put together and time to put aside, as well as provides a good energy mix for the workshop. So, it is important to yourself and the others, that you make a commitment, and embrace the responsibility of the path you have chosen for the highest good of all concerned.
A lot of people expressed interest, but in the end commitment speaks louder, so there will also be registration deadlines and pre-registration discounts to assist. All of this can be found below.
If for some reason the minimum requirement is not met, anyone who has pre-registered will receive a full refund.
There will also be a limited max of spaces available, as I want to ensure everyone gets the attention needed, and are comfortable in the space I have to offer.
So, if you’re ready to commit to a positive, life-changing experience, you can register below.

This offering is provided with intention to support you to help yourself and to learn how to provide an optimal healing opportunity for other people and animals towards compassionate goals, intentions and worldwide healing and change. Reiki is a perfect antidote to stress relief, more peace, clarity and overall well being that can transform and help support your chosen path in life. As a very powerful aid to personal growth, Reiki works on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Reiki can also help to empower your goals and intentions, and more efficiently come from a heart-based place in attaining desired, harmonious results for the highest good. It is a complimentary treatment to any and all other treatment modalities, improves their effectiveness and benefits and helps to stimulate the body’s own natural healing abilities. It is not meant to replace professional medical advice and Reiki practitioners do not diagnose or prescribe medication. You will be learning the Usui System of Natural Healing.
We’re already almost half way through March and Spring is on the way! Temps have been rising here too (63 degrees today!), everything is thawing, and all seems connected with everyone emerging in bigger ways and those seeds getting ready to blossom. The seeds have been planted, things are sprouting, and even the Lenten Roses are in bloom, which heralds the end of Winter into Spring.
Intuitive Energy Guidance/Coaching:
I’ve noted the perfect synchronicity of having started back up with clients this month for our 5 week intensives of Intuitive Energy Guidance/Coaching, which is so reflective and symbolic of sacred alchemy at work for sure. And I’m so excited for them and the big shifts taking place, as they both step into the next leg of their life’s work.
I’ve shared that I do need to keep a limit on clients I’m working with and did add an extra opening to April due to my inability to be available May.
This space is still open if anyone feels called, otherwise I won’t be available again until June.
The link above gives detail on how I work and the type of people drawn to me, but be sure to watch the video, as that will explain further.
Reiki in Lake Tahoe:
I’m still not offering Reiki sessions and Healing Attunements, except to my coaching clients, but have been receiving nudges that some Reiki workshops may be in store.
I’m not setting up a particular day or schedule for this, but am putting it out there to anyone that I am open to teaching this summer, beginning June, out of my space here overlooking Lake Tahoe.
If someone contacts me to schedule a workshop, I will then make that day and time available for others (granted it’s not a private workshop request) and go from there.
I have received inquiries for both a Level 3 Reiki Master Teacher training and Reiki 1 workshop. I usually teach a combined Reiki 1 & 2 Accelerated workshop, but might just offer the Level 1 alone for those people interested, as I’m getting it may be more aligned for those inquiring.
That said, if you have a particular request, please don’t hesitate to contact me, as I can customize to your needs.
If you’ve already taken some or all of the levels with another teacher and desire to further your training with me, feeling a shift in your path, I would be happy to accommodate that and discuss things with you. I, and other teachers, often get students that have trained in Reiki 1 and 2 with someone else, but feel a new teacher is more aligned with where they are now.
I’ve also had many people want to brush up on their training and wanting to get another teacher’s perspectives on the levels they’ve already taken, in which case I’ve also welcomed these people into my workshops and that can also be discussed further, if desired.
I can also tailor a workshop around specific requests and incorporate crystals, Faeries, etc. which I often do anyway (and then some!), depending on the student/s I have and their interests.
Anyway, I’m just putting that out there and if I do set something up, I’ll post the opportunity for others, if appropriate to the nature of the workshop scheduled.
I teach both privately and in groups and look forward to what the energy of this amazing space will provide to any potentials that may open.
This would be available to both locals or anyone wanting to travel and nurture themselves to receiving training while enjoying the energy and nature experience Lake Tahoe has to offer.

That’s just one month from today’s New Moon, which is a powerful one!
By request, the workshops you’ll find below have now been scheduled and have some space still available.
Unfortunately, my weekends are now completely filled until I leave, which means I can only schedule a workshop on a week day, if you’re flexible and the workshop dates below don’t work for you or are not the workshops you desire.
That said, my weeks are quite full as well, and so I have very limited availability. If you are hoping for a workshop before I leave, please let me know before I’ve capped off my schedule completely.
Also, due to my new location, there is a smaller limit to the amount of students I can accommodate comfortably.
My time here is at closure and it’s wonderful to know that there are so many amazing practitioners and teachers here that I’ve had the pleasure and honor of supporting and seeing them come into their own, as they pursue their chosen paths and continue to cultivate their practices, whether professionally or in their personal lives.
So, if the timing doesn’t work out for catching me before I leave, I have a lot of people I can recommend as a teacher for your Reiki training in the area that match your energy and fit your needs.
I’ll be teaching only by request from now on, while I’m living in the RV, in the areas I travel to, which you can set up if you see me in your area, or you would like to put together a Private Immersive Retreat.
Here are the two scheduled workshops to be taught here in Newport Beach before I leave and how many people I could still potentially welcome at max.
- Sunday, December 27th: Crystal Magick Workshop – depending upon the weather, this workshop may be held outdoors on the beach by the lagoon, as I’m feeling called to combine it in Nature if possible (2 spaces available) – this will be in the wake of Christmas Day’s Full Moon just 2 days after!
- Sunday, January 3rd: Reiki 3 Master Teacher Workshop – (1 space available) – this will be in the build-up to the New Moon of the 10th and kicking off 2016!
Remember that past students are welcome to join for review. So if you want to get a refresher or feel you’ll be teaching soon, this is your chance.
You can contact me here if you have questions or would like to register: Tania Marie
