Your Mother’s Day Inner Power Tip

TODAY’S INNER POWER TIP: If  Mother’s Day stirs up strong “negative” images and emotions for you — please consider this:  even if your relationship with your birth mother wouldn’t make good copy for a classic Hallmark greeting card – you still have the choice to be grateful to her for being the portal through which you entered THIS physical reality, which was your Divine Spirit’s choice and powerful desire.  You can also choose to be grateful for the qualities of strength, courage and perhaps even compassion and forgiveness you have developed via that relationship.  Blessings abound when you change your perspective! (Appreciation to Rev. Michael Beckwith for the “portal” reminder!)

(From Dr. Masaru Emoto)

To All People Around the World:

Please send your prayers of love and gratitude to water at the nuclear plants in Fukushima, Japan!

Day and Time:

March 31st, 2011 (Thursday)

12:00 noon in each time zone

Please say the following phrase:

“The water of Fukushima Nuclear Plant, we are sorry to make you suffer.  Please forgive us.  We thank you, and we love you.”

By the massive earthquakes of Magnitude 9 and surreal massive tsunamis, more than 10,000 people are still missing…even now… It has been 16 days already since the disaster happened. What makes it worse is that water at the reactors of Fukushima Nuclear Plants started to leak, and it’s contaminating the ocean, air and water molecule of surrounding areas.

Human wisdom has not been able to do much to solve the problem, but we are only trying to cool down the anger of radioactive materials in the reactors by discharging water to them.

Is there really nothing else to do?

I think there is. During over twenty year research of hado measuring and water crystal photographic technology, I have been witnessing that water can turn positive when it receives pure vibration of human prayer no matter how far away it is.

Energy formula of Albert Einstein, E=MC2 really means that Energy = number of people and the square of people’s consciousness.

Now is the time to understand the true meaning. Let us all join the prayer ceremony as fellow citizens of the planet earth.  I would like to ask all people, not just in Japan, but all around the world to please help us to find a way out the crisis of this planet!!

The prayer procedure is as follows.

Name of ceremony:

“Let’s send our thoughts of love and gratitude to all water in the nuclear plants in Fukushima”

Day and Time:

March 31st, 2011 (Thursday)

12:00 noon in each time zone

Please say the following phrase:

“The water of Fukushima Nuclear Plant, we are sorry to make you suffer.  Please forgive us.  We thank you, and we love you.”

Please say it aloud or in your mind. Repeat it three times as you put your hands together in a prayer position.

Please offer your sincere prayer.

Thank you very much from my heart.

With love and gratitude,

Masaru Emoto

“We’re not unhappy because we don’t have enough of what we think that we want.  We are unhappy because we are resisting what is currently in our lives and are frantically caught up in trying to fix something  that we perceive to be broken.”

~ Katharine Woodward Thomas

Frequently, as the new year begins and we start focusing on our intentions, we cannot help also focusing on what we believe we DO NOT have – the opposite of what we are intending to create the remainder of the year.

That conflict can create stress and almost always brings up resistance.  We do NOT want to admit that things ARE they way they ARE, even though of course, they ARE!!!

And that is THE key to maintaining happiness!  Accept what IS.  Make peace with what IS.  Find the blessing in what IS.  It doesn’t mean you have to stay there – that’s why you are ARE setting intentions for what you want to create.

But it also doesn’t mean that you keep beating yourself up, making yourself wrong, or trying to hide from the present.  Anything we make wrong or try to hide from we actually ADD to the energy of it!  That’s what creates the energetic resistance!

When you can make whatever it is just plain OK – FOR NOW — then you take the charge out of it.  The energy can keep flowing!  Resistance BLOCKS energy from flowing and blocked energy cannot create what you want – the flow is stopped during the time you are resisting.

Here’s a little exercise you can do anytime you notice you are focused on what you DON’T have or what you DON’T want.

Get some paper and a pen.  Make 2 columns on the paper. Now on the left side of the page, make a list of all the things you don’t like.  Leave a few lines between each item.

“I don’t like the number in my bank account.”

I don’t like the number on the scale.

I don’t like how my kids/parents/spouse are behaving.

On the right hand side of the page, next to each item, now write:

Even though I don’t like this situation, I accept it now exactly as it is.

I surrender any resistance to it and invite

my Higher Self/Angels/Christ (whatever suits your beliefs)

to show me the blessings and to help me change my perspective now.

Thank You Universe!

There will be some extra “oomph” if you write that prayer for EACH item on your list – but – if you are in a hurry – then just write it at the end and if possible, say it out loud also.  You want to add as much energy and feeling to the prayer as possible.

When you feel complete with the exercise, go on about your day with a smile, EXPECTING your heart and mind to be changed.

Expect miracles and you WILL receive them! And dooo, please-oh -lease – send me an email and let me know!!

Here’s to your happiness NOW!!

I received an email yesterday from James Twyman that included the message below from James’ colleague, Dannion Brinkley.   I was so moved by Dannion’s message that I felt compelled to share it with all of you.

I’ve had the unique pleasure and privilege of spending several hours over the past few years with Dannion Brinkley and his wife/soulmate Kathryn Brinkley.  I’ve even been fortunate enough to be at their beautiful home here in Henderson (a suburb of Las Vegas), Nevada.

You may know of Dannion as the man that survived being struck by lightning TWICE and who has come back from the dead THREE times!  He’s written several books about these experiences, what he learned and what he was told while on the other side of the veil.

Dannion has a passionate mission in life and when you hear him talk about it, especially in person as I have,  you cannot help but be moved — well at least most people I’ve been with have felt that way.  I feel compelled to share Dannion’s mission with you today   . . . and if you feel guided then I invite YOU to share Dannion’s mission with your community.

Do ONLY what feels “right” to you . . . OF COURSE . . . .  as always!!  : )

Thanks in advance for reading!!!!

From Dannion:

Right now–as you read this–there are brave men and women putting their life on the line for you and me. While they do, 75,000 of our brave Veterans from WWII, Korea and Vietnam are dying every month. And of those, MANY are making their final passage ALONE.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

They deserve better than that. To leave these men and women alone in their final days borders on being immoral.

They were there when we needed them. We must be there now that they need us.

The Twilight Brigade is a leader in providing and standardizing end-of-life care for Veterans, meeting the unique needs of dying Vets and their survivors. By the end of 2011, the number of Vets dying will increase to 100,000 each month! Some of these Vets, described by Tom Brokaw as “The Greatest Generation,” are the Vets who went to war, came home, and built the greatest industrialized nation in history–the United States. There is an URGENT need for those who love Veterans or are loved by our Veterans to step up and help The Twilight Brigade meet this urgent need. Expanding and training our volunteer corps depends on you.

Today is a day you can make a difference, a big difference. Without your help as a Volunteer or Donor, more Vets will die alone.

We don’t want to ask for your contribution without giving you something great in return. For your donation of $25 or more, we will give you a free streaming video of my 90-minute presentation on “How to Activate the Gift of Compassion within You,” from Agape’s Revelation Conference.

“The dying need tender loving care, nothing more.” ~Mother Teresa

There’s still time to go on-line to make your donation:

I look forward to hearing from you, sending you my talk, and acknowledging you for joining the team honoring and supporting
our Vets.

Warmest Regards,

The Twilight Brigade Chair and Co-Founder

SO LONG 2010! WELCOME 2011!

Rainbow New Year’s Blessings to you!

May this be your greatest year ever!

As part of my New Year preparations each year, I frequently do a ritual called The Burning Bowl Ceremony.  This year, (or should I say LAST year – 2010) I invited my virtual family, friends and clients to participate in the ceremony by sending me their lists of everything they wanted to leave behind in 2010.

The invitation and the details about the Burning Bowl Ceremony was posted HERE.

When I invited everyone to participate, I had not intended on filming the ceremony, but as I began to prepare on New Year’s Eve, Spirit kept nudging at me — a bit like my Lovely Lola (my chihuahua) does when she wants attention!  It became clear that “They” wanted it on video — so . . .

Here is the result!

I’m truly honored and grateful to all those who sent in their releasing lists! It was deeply fulfilling for me to conclude 2010 – living my life purpose:  to be of service to YOU!

It is never too late to begin anew — so if you feel a Divine Nudge after watching the video or reading the BYE BYE 2010 post, go ahead and conduct your own version of the ceremony!!

And if you need any help — just email me!

Make this your most magnificent year ever!  Only YOU have the power!

Rainbow Blessings!

So Christmas has passed and this week people traditionally do some sort of Year In Review process – examining what went right and what went differently than they had had hoped or expected.

As my end of year special gift to you,

I’d like to help you say BYE-BYE 2010

in the Infinite Inner Power way!

Are you ready to harness the powerful Universal energies that are present NOW to release all your negative energy from 2010?

As a result of the confluence of last week’s Winter Solstice, the full Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon AND Mercury in Retrograde, the planets are aligned and configured in an extraordinary pattern that has not happened for over 300 years!  So let’s put ALL that extraordinary ENERGY to good use!

As my gift to you, on December 31st, as the sun sets here in Las Vegas, I will hold a Sacred Burning Bowl Ceremony to release YOUR 2010 and create space FOR YOU to reclaim ALL of your inner power that has leaked, lunged or was swept away despite your best intentions this year!

Here’s the plan to let go of the old and create the new:

1.            MAKE A LIST

Make a  list of EVERYTHING you want to let go of.  This will be stuff that didn’t go well for you this year :  a relationship that soured, debt that increased, the hurt feelings because someone said or didn’t say something that you interpreted in a painful way.  It could also be physical ailments or conditions.

It could also be getting rid of physical stuff like cleaning out a closet – in which case just DO IT and don’t put it on the list!  Even if you only have 30 minutes to clean out a kitchen drawer – DO IT, dump it and/or donate it!  Honestly that’s a GREAT start!  Physically cleaning out SOMETHING will shift the energy in your physical space and we are always looking to keep energy MOVING!

Now back to the list –

Here’s the top 3 things on my list of letting go:  (1) beating myself up about some financial decisions I made; (2) beating myself up because I gained weight this year; (3) beating myself up because my business hasn’t grown further. (Uh do we see a pattern here? Gulp!)

Don’t limit yourself to 3 things – write them all down – 20 or 200 – the more the better because this is an INCREDIBLE opportunity to reclaim your power for 2011.  The more you get rid of in the fear, guilt, pain, lack, loss department, the more room you are creating to receive love, light, joy, peace and prosperity!!

Now what to do with the list?


You had a part to be play in everything on that list.  Using my list as an example:  (1)  I take ownership of the financial decisions I made that I’m unhappy about.    I made the best choice I could at the time. In hindsight I have regret over it because I NOW recognize that in some cases I didn’t listen to my own intuition.  I created the situations which is a good thing because it also means I have the power to let it go and create differently!  (2) my weight gain – well I picked up the fork too many times and for the wrong reasons.  Acknowledging that gives me my power back, but continuing to beat myself up about – is no better than picking the fork up again and again.

You get the idea here right?  You have to cop that you had a hand in creating the challenges.  Even if it was something like an illness or an accident, there was something in your energetic vibration that made you susceptible to whatever happened.  You were creating a learning experience for yourself!  That’s the good news!  Now we want to learn what we need to and MOVE ON!!!!

(NOTE:  If you don’t see where you played a part in the situation you can do 2 things:  1) ignore it and choose to release it anyway or (2) send me an email (Steph [at] so I can help you.)

3.            GO THE DISTANCE

There is some added power  to the process if you go public with your list.  Going public gets it out of your head and more importantly, out of the hands of your ego.  At a minimum it’s good to cop to what you want to let go of or are feeling guilty about to a trusted friend, spouse or Spiritual Advisor – that’s where I come in!

Here are some suggestions:

1.            Share the list with someone you trust.  The other person simply listens and says “Thank you for sharing this with me. I honor and respect your willingness to release these burdens.”

2.            Post  your list here in the comments section (perhaps not the 200 but the top 20 would be cool!) I will support you as stated in #1.

3.            Send the list to me in a sealed envelope marked BYE BYE 2010!  I promise I will not look in the envelope if it is marked properly.   My mailing address is 2433 E. Tropicana Ave., #455, Las Vegas, NV 89121, U.S.A.

4.            Email the list to me at Steph [at]

4.            THE RELEASE

As my gift to you, on December 31st, as the sun sets here in Las Vegas, I will hold a Sacred Burning Bowl Ceremony for all of the lists I have received via email, snail mail or posted here on the blog (Nos. 2-4 above).  (If you choose to share your list with someone besides me or even just keep it to yourself – that’s cool too of course! Just follow the instructions to below to create your own sacred ceremony.)

The Burning Bowl Ceremony involves moving into a meditative state and placing each of your lists (and mine!) in an appropriate (safe) container (like my BBQ).  I will set them alight and as the smoke rises I will speak a prayer into the Universe to the effect that that the energy of your pains, fears and frustrations is transformed, reshaped and returned to you as Inner Strength, Inner Peace and Love for yourself and for humanity. I will remain in meditation until the all of your prayers have traveled by smoke into the heavens.

As the fire dies out I will send a final prayer of thanksgiving and claim your good in YOUR name for YOU!!

[NOTE: if you do your own ceremony you can choose your own words of course, and you can also choose to simply tear up your list, pour water on it, stomp on it, bury it, anything you want to symbolically let go of the energy.  Conclude your self-styled ceremony with some words of release – "I release and let this go and know that it is done."]

5.  NOW WHAT??

If making the list is easy for you GREAT!

If you are having difficulty with it – please email me:

(Steph [at] and I’ll help you get over the hang ups.

Over the next few days I will post some other helpful tips about releasing and also about setting your intentions to create a truly magnificent and powerful 2011 for you!

Helping you release the old is my gift to you!

You may also  book a session with me at my current PAY AS YOU CHOOSE pricing for the remainder of this year.  My pricing will be changing January 1st so this is a great opportunity for you to get a head start on those New Year’s intentions!

Once you choose the session you want HERE, you’ll receive an email with the link to book your appointment.  I’ll be giving VIP scheduling (within 24 hrs of receipt of payment whenever possible) this week to help you maximize your willingness to make powerful changes!

OK!  Let’s get those lists made and prepare to burn baby burn! Only YOU can make the choice to reclaim your Inner Power NOW!

“You are only resentful to the extent you have given away your personal power.”

- Katherine Woodward Thomas

I have been reading (AND doing the exercises in) Katherine Woodward Thomas’ book, Calling In The One” and came across her powerful quote this morning.  It hit me like a ton of bricks because I have been doing a lot of forgiveness work regarding my former marriage – especially since my ex remarried a couple of weeks ago.

His marriage wasn’t a surprise to me – I had been told about it and frankly had expected it.  But when I actually saw the Facebook status change in my newsfeed – well – I was quite surprised at how deeply it hit me.

I’ve taught a lot about forgiveness over the years, and written a lot about it also.  Of course that’s because I’ve also had too-many-to-mention opportunities to practice forgiveness over the years.  And being in my mid-50s now, well that’s been quite a few years already!  (This is one of the great advantages I’m finding during this period of my life – the wisdom that comes from having been around the block a few times already! : )

I spent a good number of years learning how to forgive my parents initially.  One of the most helpful things  I was taught was to recognize and accept that my parents did the best they could with the tools they had.  The truth is – we ALL do the best we can with the tools we have at the time.  And if we have limited tools . . . well . . . sometimes there are consequences that we have to deal with that are part of our life  lessons.

Another forgiveness tool I’ve had great success with is Ho’OPonoPono – a Hawaiian technique brought to the public eye via Joe Vitale’s discovery of  Dr. Hu Lin.  Dr. Lin cured an entire ward of a prison mental hospital using the Ho O Pono Pono process.  Dr. Lin believed that he was responsible for everything and everyone that was around him through the thoughts he created and therefore if he could change his thought process, he could also change the lives and circumstances around him.

So Dr. Lin spent each day in his office with one of the inmates files.  Over and over again, he simply repeated the four phrases:

I am sorry.

I love you.

Please forgive me.

Thank You.

One by one the inmates were cured and eventually they shut down the ward because not only were the current patients cured, but no NEW patients arrived to fill up the beds!

But until today, when I read Katherine’s comment “You are only resentful to the extent you have given away your personal power” I had not consciously realized that I was actually giving away my power by holding on to some resentment about (and therefore not being able to completely forgive)  the dissolution of my marriage.  I was in conflict with one of my own primary beliefs — that I am 100,000% in charge of my life and everything that manifests in it.

And that includes everything about my relationship with my ex.  I was NOT a victim, though I have played the part more than I care to admit.  I was NOT a martyr either, though I played that role also for a time.  And while I was playing those roles – I was giving away my power!  My power to create the life I choose!  My power to create and experience JOY!  My power to manifest my new desires!

When we hold both hands clenched around our resentments – our need to be “right” – we cannot OPEN our hands (or more importantly our HEARTS) to allow in new love, new peace, new joy!

The only way to do open our clenched hands and hearts  is to forgive ourselves!  And as you do, the resentment will dissolve and disappear and your full power will be restored.

You always have the infinite inner power to choose again!

Is today the day YOU will choose to forgive and reclaim YOUR full power?
