I recently learned the technique of Ho'oponopono. It is a very simple spiritual technique that can be used to clear away bad energy. It's like creating a clean slate. It is so easy to do and I have been enjoying doing it. It involves saying 4 sentences: "I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you." If you are experiencing difficulty with a person in your life, try visualizing them and saying the phrase. I think you'll notice the energy shift for the better. I am now recommending my clients use Ho'oponopono with their animals such as behavioral challenges, lost animals and deceased animals. Let me know what you observe...

I am excited to report that I took the Vow of Refuge yesterday. This means I am officially Buddhist. I even got a Refuge name: Patient Dharma Joy. I think that sums me up pretty well. This vow would be open to anyone who has come to the conclusion that the Buddhist path is the way forward for them. In this vow, first, one takes “refuge” in the Buddha, who embodies wakefulness. One then takes refuge in the dharma, the teachings as they have been passed down, and then the sangha, one’s fellow travelers on the path. Trungpa Rinpoche commented that the term “refuge” here is more in the sense of becoming a “refugee” as opposed to finding a refuge in security. He described a refugee as someone who leaves behind the certainties of solidified existence. In doing this, they embark on a journey without fixed reference points, just working with their experience as it unfolds.
I had the opportunity to work with Acharya Susan Chapman again. She offered the Rigden week-end in Edmonton that I participated in about 5 months ago. She is truly an enlightened being. She has come to our Shambhala Centre in Nelson for about 10 days this month. So, I was the coordinator for the Rigden week-end last week. It was quite the whirlwind to have only been a participant a few months ago to being the organizer. But it was an honour to serve the Acharya and my community members. Ironically, we discovered that we had the same horse back riding coach in Vancouver with a 20 year gap! She had her last lesson in 1966 and I rode with this instructor from 1986-87 when I was about 11 years old. I notice that these syncronities happen offen when I meditate. I think it is the universe telling me I am on the right path.
I recently visited one of the many spiritual stores in my hippie new age artsy town of Nelson. I came home with a packet of color therapy for the bath. I picked green for my hyperactive son for supporting calmness and compassion.
I also brought home the book "The Afterlife of Billy Fingers." It is about a women whose brother dies tragically at the age of 62 and then starts communicating with her from the other side. I won't go into too many details in case you want to read the book. This book totally confirms the work I do as an Animal Communicator. He reports his experience and the transformation of his soul as he progresses from "Billy" to becoming the Universe. It is truly an inspiring book and it will get you excited about life and death.
Towards the end of the book he describes to his living sister the background music he hears in "heaven" as his soul goes through a ceremony of detaching from his earthly memories. Billy describes the closest thing on earth to this joyous sound is Mahler's 8th Symphony. I definitely felt moved to the core while listening. So here it is for your convenience. Enjoy!
I have been a Professional Animal Communicator since January 2016. I have been an animal lover and admirer for a very, very long time.
