Today is my moms birthday. She passed away seven years ago. Making this painting helped me heal from the grief that I have been carrying around with me. So far today it has been an overcast, breezy, rainy day. Her favorite kind of day! Miss and love you mom. Ti amo.


Believe in Love always

Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder

Keep rosemary by your garden gate

Add pepper to your mashed potatoes

Plant roses and lavender for luck

Fall in love whenever you can

Twin Flames


Twin flames. Just the thought makes my heart flutter. I love reading about twin flame relationships. Twin flames are different from soul mates. A twin flame is the other half of a soul although each individual in the pair is complete. The ultimate goal is to be reunited with your twin flame and ascend together. Soul mates, on the other hand, are thought to be numerous and can range from friends to lovers. It is said that we each have many soul mates but only one twin flame.

The Healing Power of Nature

I don’t know about you guys but I feel the outdoors calling my name. In fact, I feel the silent pull of the sea calling me. That thought makes me reminisce about my days in Los Angeles during vet school. My vet school was in Pomona, CA and  I could easily get in the car and be at the beach in forty minutes.

My favorite spot and secret hideaway was Balboa Island. I used to take my dog Maya with me. She loved riding the ferry from Balboa Island to Newport Beach. She had her little group of buddies that she liked to say hello to. There was the bulldog who was always chilling with his owner at the Starbucks on the main drag of Balboa and the German Shepherd who lived in a house near the boardwalk at Newport, to name a few. The two of us used to spend hours just walking and people watching. Sometimes we would go to the dog beach at Huntington or the nice dog park nearby as well. One day at the Huntington park we stumbled upon a group of Golden Retrievers having a birthday party.

Sometimes I think about taking Maya back to the beach one last time as she is now geriatric. I’m not really sure of her age as she was a rescue. She was brought into the clinic I was working at prior to vet school by a good Samaritan after being hit by a car.  Shes been my one-eyed,wonder mutt, beach dog ever since. Except now shes my retired beach dog!

Guardian Angels

It’s been an emotional week.

As I was driving to teach my class, another driver made a left hand turn directly into my car and I spun about 3 to 4 times before stopping in the dirt median. All I kept thinking was please let me stop in the middle and not go into oncoming traffic. It was almost as if someone gently picked up my car and placed it in that median. My door was jammed and I had to crawl over to the passenger side to get out.I was sore in my shoulder area and emotionally shaken up but that was it. I am so blessed! I know my guardian angels were watching over me, especially Archangel Michael. I even found a feather and a penny in the dirt near my car. Both a sign that angels are nearby.

Angels have become a big part of my life in recent years. I started seeing “angel numbers” a few years ago while working at a hospital that wasn’t right for me. It started by my noticing that whenever I looked at the time it was always a sequence of numbers such as 11:11 or 1:11, etc. I began to look up the meaning of the numbers and the concept of angel numbers and messages resonated with me.  I’ve been fascinated with numerology and angels in general since.  In fact, when I sat down to edit this blog post I noticed that it had 444 words. That’s one of my favorite angel numbers!

My favorite books on the subject of angels and angel numbers are written by Doreen Virtue. I’ve pretty much bought out the New Age section in the local bookstore since starting my spiritual journey.  Doreen Virtue continues to be one of my favorite authors. Her teachings and writings resonate with me on a soul level. Aside from her wonderful books, she also has beautiful tarot card decks and apps for smart phones.  Her angel number app is one of my favorites. I love to check the meaning of the number sequences that I see on a regular basis.

I truly believe that the universe sends us messages in many forms and always has our backs. When we are in tune with our higher self and guides I think we can decipher these messages with many of our natural intuitive abilities. We just have to be open to them. I am so grateful for my guardian angels constant love and protection. I do not know why I was recently in a car accident but I do know that there are only blessings to be sought and lessons of gratitude to be focused upon. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
