I was given
and gratefully received
a gift Wednesday night
by one of the brave souls
participating in my
“Your Next Step”

I was reminded that during the weeks and weeks and weeks following my son Rory’s diagnosis of glioblastoma multiforme
an aggressive, infiltrating brain cancer
for which there is no cure
there were many, many times
when the seemingly unbearable
was made bearable
due to the energetic efforts of people
some who I knew
more that I did not.

I know that people said prayers for me
they sent loving thoughts,
and healing energy

they surrounded me with light
and with love
and somehow
I felt it.
I felt it.

And for a period of time
their intentions and actions
helped make the unbearable
for me.

Perhaps you have had similar experiences.

And then I noticed
and the brave soul
who planted this seed confirmed that this had been her experience, too,
that as time went by
and people “moved on”
and placed their attention elsewhere
no longer spending time focusing on me
and my journey
no longer sending me their prayers, 
their healing energy, 
their light, 
their love,
the feelings of love and support and connectedness
I had been experiencing

And I felt more alone.

Proof to me
that we each posses an energetic power to connect with another
whenever we want.

If you are like me, you want to heal.

Did you know that in order to receive, you must first give what it is you wish to receive? 

If you want to heal, you must offer healing to another.

And here is a way we can do just that.

Join me at 7:00pm this evening (your time) in offering healing to one other person who is part of this Healing Circle. Pick someone you know, or read through a post or two and pick someone your heart tells you needs healing, comfort, strength, grace, love today.

Spend a few minutes focusing on the person you choose. It’s totally up to you how much time you decide to/are able to devote to this practice today. One second is more powerful than no seconds. From your heart, send one person your prayers, your light, your love, your healing energy. However it is you energetically connect with another ~ offer them your blessing.

And be open tonight.
At 7:00pm
your time.
To receive the same energetic blessing from another.
Someone you know, perhaps,
or someone you do not.


When I heal, you heal. When you heal, I heal.

Are you in?

If my NEW WAY of "doing grief" resonates with you, I'd love to work with you one-on-one. If you are in the Rockford, Illinois area we can do that in person, otherwise, I am having great success working with people all over the country via Skype or FaceTime.  Email me at if you would like to take the next step on your grief journey and we can schedule a session.
