Let Go


With the new age philosophy it can often be about how to attain happiness or manifest something outside of yourself. I have found that only by deep listening can I cultivate my true inner voice. The soul’s voice.

As I stared at the sand moving through my fingers I saw the connection of letting go of all space and time. It is only there that one can enter into their own sacred dominion.

Surrendering deep into that sacred space in-between thoughts is where you find the answers.

So dive deep and enter the portal within and you will find it is truly coming back home.

Strange Days Indeed

“All you really need to do is accept this moment fully. You are then at ease in the here and now with yourself.”~ Eckart Tolle

A good friend of mine contacted me asking, “Is the energy on the planet really weird right now?”I paused for a moment before answering her. “The energy is weird all the time these days,” I replied.

It seems I’m being asked questions like this more and more these days. It’s pretty obvious to me that we are living through some incredibly strange times.There is definitely something going on.

Thinking back when I was a teenager I became intrigued with the prophecies written in the Book of Revelations. As I read the unfolding events, beginning with war, famine, earthquakes, floods, disease and all kinds of erratic behavior I felt a fire and an urgency coming from somewhere deep inside of me. The prophecies somehow resonated and it felt like my soul was remembering something but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Although I didn’t know how at the time, I knew that the days predicted in Revelations would somehow be my future. And as I look around at what’s going on in the world today I believe I was more on point than I could have ever imagined.

As we move towards an uncertain future I feel it’s imperative that we find a way to come back to our center. I don’t mean next month or when you go on a vacation or sometime in the future, I mean right now.

I can still hear the words of my teacher, Papa Joe, when he told me, “It is time for these destructive energies that have been creating havoc and controlling us for ages to leave the planet but they don’t want to go and will use every trick in the book to stay in control.”

Hearing this years ago hasn’t made my life any easier but what I was taught was that when I get quiet and find that place of neutrality in me, I can feel a sense of ease and comfort. I realize there is no person or place out there that can give me the security or peace of mind that I can only find from deep within. When I am connected to my power and stay present, through conscious breath, I have a much better chance at maintaining balance and equilibrium in my life.

We always need to be careful of who, what and where your mind engages and have discernment in who you let into your energy field. Pay attention to your body and if you feel uneasy, listen to that. This is not a time to go back to sleep.

Everyone Needs a Reset

reset

I’m a bit of a neat freak. I can’t help it. I must confess I am so sensitive to energy that I insist on having a clean home. That’s why it was completely out of character for me to hire Maria, a cleaning lady to come over. But I’m so glad that I did. Let me be the first to say there is nothing like having someone move furniture and get behind all those little nooks and crannies that are hard to reach. When everything was said and done and put back in its place, I can’t even begin to explain the difference in my mood. I felt so much lighter with a deep sense of contentment within. As far as I’m concerned it was money well spent.

It got me thinking, ‘Wow, this is kind of what I do when I work on someone.’ I start by moving through the layers of stuff that has settled in a person’s mind, body or spirit. Afterward the client tells me they feel amazing yet, they find it hard to explain why.

When people ask me what I do, I tell them I start by moving the energy upwards through the different points in their feet. This energy moves through accumulated ‘stuff’ known as blockages that can be stored or held inside the body. It can be fear, repressed emotions, entities or negative energies that need to be cleared out.

For some reason, I am able to see these energies that many people are unaware that they have. Over time, they have become so accustomed to living with it they don’t even realize they have collected numerous energies in their daily lives.

When I think about it it’s a bit like Maria coming to my home with a new and different perspective. She may see a little dust pile that I haven’t been paying attention to or perhaps she moves things around just enough that gives me a new and refreshing point of view.

I have been doing energy healing on clients for years and as I sit here in my clean home I’m so inspired to write this story. I have come to the conclusion that everything needs to be reset so we can have a new point of view. We do it with our cars, computers or by taking vacations. So, I feel it’s important to get help from others in order to clear what we don’t see and what no longer serves us.

The Importance of Being Grounded

Grounded: Mentally and emotionally stable: admirably sensible, realistic, and unpretentious. remains grounded despite praise or attention

grounded

Recently I was working with a client, who asked, “How I can I protect myself from negative energies?”

This is one of the most common questions people ask me. I replied like I normally do, “Ground yourself.” She responded with, “Well, How do I do that?” At that point I realized I was being vague and needed to be more specific.
So I looked up the meaning of ‘grounded’ in the Webster’s Dictionary.

With all my years of training the dictionary didn’t seem to do the word justice.
As I’ve learned from my personal experience until you can practice being grounded , it’s just a word.

Looking back at a healing with my teacher, Papa Joe, I remember several people swarmed around him after he had done an exorcism on a woman. Everyone was silent with a humble energetic awe. To witness something so profound changes you forever. So naturally, we were curious to what just took place and started asking Papa Joe questions.

“What was that?” Someone asked. “How did that woman get that energy on her?” “Can that happen to us?” “Is there any way we can protect ourselves from these negative energies?”

He was silent. Then Papa Joe took a long deep breath. “Staying grounded is your best protection.” He further elaborated with, “Stay present in your bodies so negative energies are less likely to enter.”

This rang true for me. I had spent most of my younger years out of my body. I was raised with zero self esteem. Fear ruled my life and I was not grounded at all. I had to learn how to come into my body.

So with my work today I help people address their trauma so they can come back to their bodies and release stored fear.

These are the essentials for grounding:
Spending time in nature
Conscious breathing
Exercise daily
Healthy boundaries with others
Body work
Daily meditation
Mindful living
“In a world, a city, a town, where people claim to be ‘a healer’ no one is more true, more studied, more genuine and powerful than this woman. From a sprained ankle to a heartbreak to a child suffering from ADD her hands on healing and intuitive capabilities will blow you away. You walk in one person and leave another, filled with peace, clarity and a real sense of renewal” ~Dina

I had a dream last night. I was looking out of a big glass window in a high rise building. As I looked down at the city I saw a horrific crash—what appeared to be one of the worst car crashes I have ever seen. I saw a woman fly out from the crash flipping backwards through the sky. I realized she had died and her spirit was leaving her body. I then saw several clusters of gold light surrounding the area of the accident. I started crying hysterically, an uncontrollable sob. I somehow saw myself crying and observed my reaction. At that moment a voice said “pray.” I stopped crying and realized my hysterical reaction was an automatic response. I turned around and saw a body sleeping and started yelling to wake them up. The person would not wake up and at that moment I realized I was dreaming.

The dream had me so shaken up and throughout the day I wondered what the dream was trying to tell me. It dawned on me that it was revealing how this automatic response of drama was deeply programmed into me. It became clear I was controlled by my reaction and was being asked to find the strength to rise above. I saw how it is not easy to make that change, like swimming upstream or running in sand. But I realized I could if I made the choice. I thought, “This is a spiritual warrior.” I decided then I would write a blog with the title Spiritual Warrior. I felt there must be other people out their having the same struggle in their own lives.

I thought about how many times I have overcome great adversity that has shaped me into the woman I am today. It has not been an easy path. Being a light-worker is no easy task. I remember all the years working with my teacher, Papa Joe. I began to understand the daily tests one has to endure to become a genuine healer. The idea that most people have of Spiritual Warrior is that of a cartoon figure getting rid of “the bad guy.” But being a spiritual warrior is a choice one must make over and over again. One must choose to keep and hold onto higher vibrations. In other words, becoming a spiritual warrior is a way of life and is not something that happens overnight.

From my viewpoint there is so much chaotic energy in the world today. I feel this is part of the agenda to keep people disconnected from their center. Some say the veil is being lifted. I happen to agree with this.

Are you feeling disconnected from your center? Are you frustrated with what is happening in your life and the planet? Is the fire and the fury awakening in you?

In what ways are you being challenged to develop as a spiritual warrior today?

A Story of Healing

A few months ago, a client wrote an amazing article for the Huffington Post. It was about her healing experience with me. I was moved to see how such a skeptic could change her point of view and wanted to … Continue reading

“Magic, Miracle, Blessing, Grace”

It has been a year since I wrote my last blog. Recently a client asked if he could create  a video for me in exchange for a session. He asked what I would like to talk about. I did not have a clue what I wanted to say. During the filming he and his girlfriend asked several questions about what I do and my responses surprised me. I had received so much wisdom from my teacher, and I wanted to share this knowledge with my next blog post.

I couldn’t help but think of a time years back when I was a mere pup and was on my extreme spiritual quest. I was lucky to cross paths and work with many powerful teachers, shamans, kahunas and profound healers. However, I was naive and did not understand the spiritual world. I certainly did not know who I was, and hence constantly being attacked by entities and feeling extremely out of sorts. I would think, “Why is this happening to me?” I asked these shamans and healers, but none would give me a straight answer. I became very isolated to the point of feeling suicidal. I had this strange deathly feeling coming from inside of me. Now I need to let you know that I was sick for weeks to the point of feeling I was actually going to die. One day I woke up and realized I had to clear this immediately. I sat like a thunder bolt and stated my intention/prayer to whatever guide or angel would listen. I shouted out, “Please help clear this energy from me now!” I sat with such a force and began to breathe as if were my last breath. Then it was if a hand reached into me and pulled the dark gremlin out of me. As it was leaving my body, it felt miles long. My mind somehow knew that this was energy clearing out from me. What I could not quite grasp was it felt very familiar. When I mentioned it to my teacher, Papa Joe, he pointed out that I was beginning to remember. This was what I had done for lifetimes, which began my new journey as a healer.

Since then several people have asked me, “Can you teach me the healing work that you do?” The answer is I can help awaken what is already inside you.

It has come to my awareness that many like myself are searching for answers. They are looking for purpose and meaning in their lives. Nothing can bring you to yourself but your own quest for spiritual truth and a deep desire to break free.

Our True Identity

mary in the rock II

The mind is limited. It only knows what it has been programed from the past. We can spend years mentally trying to figure it all out but in order to gain higher knowledge we need to connect to our spirit. Our soul has access to a blueprint of our existence. It is not limited because it’s connected to all time and space.

In order to truly advance physically, mentally, spiritually we must awaken out of the old reality and into the new paradigm.

It is up to us to make that choice and be willing to let go of the ego.

There is no greater reward than to move beyond personality. Then we can discover the god self within, our true identity.

Slaying your dragons

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear, after that, fear has no power, and fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free. ~ Jim Morrison

As the summer starts to fade, and we begin to move into the fall it is the perfect time to become reacquainted with ourselves. Days become shorter and we start to go inside and prepare our fireplaces with wood as reflection starts to happen quite naturally. I personally love the fall. However it does make me feel sad and melancholy sometimes but in a good way. WIth the change of weather, I was inspired to write a new blog.

I went to the store a couple of days ago to get prepared for a dinner party at my home. I could not help but to notice a woman who was extremely rude. She nearly knocked me over to get a parking space. I later saw her face to face in the market. Her eyes were in a fury and very far away. The body language was cold, angry, and saying “me first”! Not someone present at all. I looked her deep in the eyes, and immediately got goose bumps. There was something else looking at me, and I knew it was not her.

It got me thinking about, how many times have we either experienced someone like this on our path or even been there ourselves? Ever stop to wonder what is the force behind this strange kind of behavior?

When I apprenticed with my teacher over a period of seven years, I began to notice these “things” not only in others but with me as well. What I saw blew my mind. When you actually focus on these fears, angers, strange behaviors/thoughts, and obsessions is that they are alive. It’s like they have a mind or will of their own, and they do. What are they? It was brought to my attention that these “things” were entities. People over the years have asked me “where do these entities come from”? I literally could spend hours explaining, but for now will just touch briefly on the subject.

It is important to start taking inventory so we can be responsible for ourselves. Take a good look at the fears that control and block us from becoming who we could be. A lot of our imbalances, sicknesses, depression, anxieties, addictions, and making bad choices, stem from these energies. Sounds like sci-fi, right? But if you really think about it, why is it so hard to change these things in ourselves? Or why would someone be so rude to practically run you over in their car? Why would anyone choose to be unconscious?

I have mentioned before in previous blogs, how important it is to do the work, to raise our vibration. Ridding ourselves of the dragons that keep pulling us down, dragging us off our paths, and making us into sheep or zombies.

Thankfully, you can get help with a great deal of this. Healers (Shamans, Kahunas, Tuhungas) people with “Real Medicine” to assist in transforming the negative energies. It takes time, but this is a start to beginning an existence of freedom. It is possible. With the awareness as well as surrendering your ego we all can Slay our Dragons.

Shari moves energy. She is invaluable for those who are ready to embark on journeys of personal growth, take responsibility for what is (or is not) happening to them. Or for those who simply need clear energy in order to move forward. Be ready for things to shift!”  L. Anomaiprasert

Summer of Love

Do you remember when you were young, and hours would go by and your parents would have to drag you from whatever you were doing? We were present, free, and alive. I can remember riding my bike for hours without much thought in my mind other than the moment. Now we have grown up (some of us) and we are responsible and have “stuff to do”, big responsibilities that drag our minds into a constant future. But what ever happened to the innocent child? The pure heart, the joy and passion for being alive.

summer of love heart

As we became older we were shown, or told,  what was the expectation for our existence. We became more and more guarded, and had life experiences that showed us how to be. We were wounded and molded through parents, school, church, society, friends, and developed our belief systems. Little by little we shut down and joined the status quo. We learned to lie and most of all lie to ourselves of who and what we were. If you were to fully stop in this moment and ask yourself, are you living “Your Life”, of who you truly are, what would that answer be?

So, I bet you are all thinking, wait a minute! I thought this was going to be a romantic tale. “Summer of Love”, running on the beach half naked late nights with a hot passionate lover. Well, that might be one chapter of the novel. Nor is this about, drug taking dancing in the fields or a rave in some warehouse. But where I’m heading with this is another direction. Sorry, I’ll save the romantic tales for another blog post.

This however, is a love story about you and your life. Beginning now to unwind all those barriers that were created to “protect you” but were they really doing that?

Could you for a moment imagine life without your worry, fear, judgments, and trying to control everything?  Can you perceive even for a second dropping all your “stuff” and just surrendering to the moment? Allowing yourself to enjoy this time in your life right here, right now. With all your so called problems. You see, at the end of the day, it’s about your mind’s perception.  I myself could give you a list of my woes but I choose not to focus on that, it’s not about your life being “perfect”.  It is about conciousness, wouldn’t you rather be in the state of love and joy?

Can you remember the last time you were in the moment? I mean completely present not already thinking what you had to do next. I’m not talking about being a mindless blissed out space cadet. But a person fully connected and grounded in their body. Loving yourself, exactly as you are, fully in this time and space. My personal bible, “The Power of Now”, brings you through in great detail how the mind constantly hooks us into not being present. It describes fully and beautifully, how we are running after a carrot in our thoughts. This never allows us to be here and just drop in to that delicious place called now. That is the place where love resides.

Remember the old radios on our parent’s car? With big chunky, silver knobs to move through the stations.  This is how we can change our present vibration. We need to tune the station and move the knob on that radio to a new channel. It’s called the station of love. Yes, and it’s that simple. Choose the station of love. And fall completely in love with yourself and come alive at this time. Or this could be called by some of the spiritual teachers, an awakening!

So that’s right! I’m declaring it: “Summer of Love”. Take a big risk, and do the biggest act of love. Letting go of your constant mind chatter. And release your incessant negative thinking. Then get ready to enjoy the beauty life has to offer. Why wait until you are perfect to be ok with yourself? And guess what, it ain’t never gonna happen. The time is now, to drop into love. And just surrender to that beautiful place called “Now”.
