Bless The Bullshit

Last night I attended an Energy Intensive Class by Patricia Monna. She expressed some simple, wise and truthful words of wisdom. One was “Bless The Bullshit”. Isn’t this the truth? When you stop and really think about it..yes, bless the bullshit in our lives!  This bullshit is an experience. Simple as that.  If it wasn’t for the bullshit, how would you learn and grow? In every experience is a lesson. If you don’t recognize that, you will be sitting there dwelling on lives problems, consumed in the past and living in the future. So be mindful and do this by being present in the moment.

Accept the bullshit, learn from the bullshit and LET IT GO!!!

Bridging The Light

I have been on this incredible journey of fulfillment, enlightenment, healing and acceptance. My life has not been easy at all. I am sure you have read a post or two of mine. However, these situations I have been faced with has provided me with some of my greatest lessons in life. Change and healing is not an easy task and it just can’t be done overnight. You must put the work and effort into it. That is exactly what I did. I worked on myself. I endured in Reiki and I am a walking proof of what this amazing energy work can do.

Long story short, I have been given a special gift from above, from what I call the Divine, simply and powerfully God. I have the gift of healing. I have worked faithfully into working with energy to bring balance into the mind, body and spirit. I have also been able to bring this incredible gift to my family. Now, I have been guided by spirit to bring this gift to the people of this world. I am so happy to have started my own business Bridging The Light.  Please check it out

There is so much more to come.

Love & Light




Spring Ahead

Tomorrow will officially mark the first day of Spring. The days are getting a bit longer, you can feel the warmth of the sun, the trees have little buds and the lady bugs are marking their presence.

Mother nature is getting ready for the coming months. Are you? 2016 is a big year for change and transition. Now is the time to Spring clean. Not just literally, but physically and mentally. Now is the time to get out with the old and on with the new.

You may feel sensitive, irritated, lost, not sleeping well and stressed. Maybe you are asking for guidance and signs, why me? when am I going to get a break? First you must let go of what does not serve you, before you can receive.

My tip for you is to write down all the things that you want to let go of. It could be feelings, people, items, anything. Write them down and then burn that piece of paper. Let it go and visualize it leaving and never coming back. Now, write down all the things you want in your life. A new job, relationship, good health, love, happiness, etc. Now visualize already having everything on that list. Feel it, want it and know that it will happen. This is very important. Do this every month and you will see and feel change.

Another key component to this Spring cleaning is to be positive and surround yourself with positive people. Keeping your circle positive during this time is so important!!  Keeping your physical body is important too. Eat clean, get your daily exercise and take time out for yourself. Take a walk in the park, do a yoga class and quiet the mind to a meditation. Tip: you can find great ones on YouTube.

Remember living in the past does not do anything for you, and neither does living in the future. Live in the moment, for today. Life is just too short my friend.

Happy Spring!








What is Reiki? Reiki is composed of two Japanese words Rei means “Universal Life” and Ki means “Energy”. If you were to google it, this is what it would tell you….

a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.


Taking time for ourselves is very important. Everyone is pretty good at maintaining regular massage appointments, chiro, maybe even some acupuncture and cupping. What about Reiki? I feel reiki is just as important. Our bodies are made up of energy and sometimes we can have blockages due to stress, emotions, or physical pain. Reiki can help the bodies natural flow of energy by healing, restoring and bringing balance into your body and your life.

I always wanted to try reiki, but who do you go to? Does everyone have the natural healing gift?

My journey started about four years ago. Life just pointed me in a direction and through a mutual acquaintance at work I met my reiki therapist/master Jill (which I will tell you more about). I had no idea what to expect on my first session. I just went in with an open mind, relaxed and let go. My experience was incredible. I felt the currents of energy run through my body, I felt safe, I felt peace, I felt restored. As I continued to go for healing, my whole life began to transform. Not only in my physical body but my soul. My intuitiveness began to heighten, my heart and mind became more open and my stress levels were reduced. Reiki not only gave me physical restoration, it gave me strength and awareness, it created a path to purpose and opened my eyes in life. Everything began to change. This will have to be another blog as there is a lot to share on my spiritual journey that goes even beyond reiki.

I engaged in reiki level I, which eventually led into reiki level II. Now, I did this because I knew it was part of who I am.  Jill opened up this part of me and guided me down this path of healing. I am so happy I did and truly grateful for her. Now, I use my reiki to do daily distant healing’s as well as healing on my three children and my husband. Speaking of my husband. He has had some recent major medical complications. I have been able to do reiki on him and send him constant distant healing. He has said he has felt a sense of calming and release. By no means has reiki “healed” his condition or pain but it has given him some relief.

Who is Jill? Jill is an amazing soul. She is pure, genuine and gifted. Not only is she my reiki master she is a close friend. If you were looking at a reiki session or taking your levels, I would highly recommend her. She has a fantastic website with great information:

My Life in a Nut Shell

I was always so embarrassed of what I experienced and never wanted to tell people my story. I have come to a point in my life of acceptance and forgiveness. I hope that my story will inspire anyone that is in a low point in their life and to know there is hope at the end of the tunnel. We have all experienced or are experiencing a tragedy, a hardship and low point in our lives. Our experience comes in forms of many different capacities and we all handle it in many different ways. I believe how we handle it is our choice. We all must find the strength within ourselves, find the support and most importantly be able to accept and receive the support. Support may not always come in the form of your expectation, but if you can look at it in a positive light and accept what is given, you will see that support and acceptance is always there.

Here is my story….

When I was fifteen years old my parents were going through a bitter separation. My sister, who is one year younger than myself and I chose to stay with my mom and my dad left the city. The downward spiral happened so fast.

Let me back up a little bit. My mom was always the cool mom. She ran marathons, baked every week, cooked delicious meals, volunteered at the Children’s Hospital and volunteered at our school. All our friends loved our mom. She was so beautiful inside and out.

Then the dark days approached. Things started to go missing from the house, our computer, fax machine, jewellery, clothes. Hmm..always an excuse. My mom was “lending” it to a friend. Then she was gone in the nights, nights would turn into days. Long, long, long story short. My mom was heavily addicted to cocaine. I was in so much disbelief. How could this be happening? I didn’t want to believe it. I kept this secret inside for so long.

A year magically went by, I got through Grade 10. How could things get worse? They did.. my moms physical appearance got really bad. She was very skinny, bloody noses, she just didn’t care at all. Not only was she addicted to the cocaine, she was addicted to alcohol, vicodin and percocet. No electricity, no food and our home was in foreclosure. I remember my sister and I would just eat potatoes. That is all we could afford. We found money laying around the house and go buy a 5 pound bag of potatoes and eat just one for dinner.

When was the end for me? This was the end for me.. I remember she woke me up in the middle of a school night with my ex-boyfriend. They sat me down at the kitchen table telling me “If they had a gun, they would shoot me.” and he said to me “If you were a guy, I would smash your f*cking face in”. My mother continued to emotionally and verbally abuse me. She decided to have my ex-boyfriend move in with her. This is when I decided to leave and go live with my grandmother.  I made the choice to get out and start living a healthy life. She is my saving grace.

So much has happened over the course of the last 20 years. We all have been through hell and back with my mother. She is a drug addict, a compulsive liar and mastermind manipulator.  We have done the jail visits, court cases, doctors and counselling. It was taken my whole family heartache, lie and after lie to get to a point of acceptance. I have a strong family foundation and was able to tell them everything that had been going on. They opened up their arms with love and support. My aunt and uncle welcomed me as a part of their family. I was able to escape and be a part of “family” by spending time at the lake, going on family trips and continuing to spend all holidays together.  I am blessed to have them all in my life.

This is part of my life in a nut shell. If I wrote all the details, I think I could write a book. I have had some really dark days in my life. I could have went down a different path. I chose not to. I found that strength inside and said to myself “This too shall pass”.  It did. I had to grow up fast. I had to take care of myself. I have been working since I was 13 years old. Everything I have, I have worked hard for, on my own. I approach life with grace, I live authentically and with compassion. This is why I am so grateful for all the little things in life. I know what it is like to have nothing.

Life is going to throw us many different obstacles in life. It’s how you deal with them, that is your choice and no one else’s. Tackle those obticales whatever they may be with grace and turn them into a life lesson.  To get to the point of acceptance and forgiveness did not happen over night. It took years and years.I understand now that my mom has her journey and I have my own. I will always love my mom and I pray she will find her peace.

Love & Light


Fall Day

Well it’s been quite some time since I have last blogged on my daily. Life had just gotten so busy that I never made the time to sit down and write.

Over the course of the last year or so, life has given me so many trials and tribulations. Like all of us, we are all going through life, trying to live it. The key is to live honestly, look at the glass half full, be authentic, keep your circle positive and take care of yourself.

In my daily, I will share with you my learnings,  self-awareness and my personal growth. I hope that through what I have experienced and where I am today will set to inspire.

Have a wonderful day.
