Last night I got the unique opportunity to take my children to a sacred drumming ceremony. It was in honor of the 8th Anniversary of the World Drum. The World Drum was created in Norway in 2006 and has been travelling across the world to many countries and many people uniting our sacred tie as human beings with one beat, the heart beat of the Earth. Its focus is on Peace and Environmental Issues.
My night wasn’t going so well. My daughter did not nap at preschool and was very crabby and my son too seemed to not be in a pleasant mood. I had wanted to take them out for a walk somewhere, take them to dinner, and then meet at the location of the World Drum event at 6:00pm for the ceremony. But, as often happens with children in your life, plans changed quickly based on the current condition of the child. I needed to bend to accommodate them and not take them out and about and potentially stretch them even further emotionally. So we stayed home, made dinner at home, and unfortunately the crabbiness continued. There were several points where I felt like just forgetting going to the World Drum event. But there was a piece of me that just wouldn’t let it go, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. So, I took the dare of this being a big mistake and brought my two crabby kids to the event in hopes that it would go well. I am so grateful that I did and was very thankful my children were peaceful for the experience– although who am I kidding, while in the presence of the World Drum how could one not feel peace.
My son Gavin happened to be holding the World Drum when it was time for the reading of the prayer. All other drums were silent as he alone got to beat the heart beat of Mother Earth on the World Drum during this very special moment in ceremony. It was very moving and I was very happy for this special opportunity given to him.
Here are a few pictures from our night: my children playing sacred flutes and Gavin with the World Drum.

So I know it has been a long time since I last posted a blog. Between my last consistent Tuesday post and today I was halted by an unusable computer due to the hard drive breaking and needing replacement. And then honestly I just totally fell out of the habit of doing it. I feel ok about it all. I know things change and while I have spent a dedicated 2 years writing this weekly blog, and I so treasure your readership and allowing me to share my words with you, I have new ventures that need more of my attention.
As you can see I have finally put up my car magnets and am working hard at building a clientele as an Energy Healing Practitioner. This is awesome! And I can hardly believe this is my life as I love this work I do! I am also working on the content for a Do It Yourself Energy Medicine class I will be teaching in early October and am pulling out my spiritual/paranormal memoir to get that going again. Plus, I think my biggest goal is to separate home life from work life. Up until this point they have been very blended. Working while the children were sleeping, or playing, or sometimes even zoned out on the technology. But what I really really want to establish is set working hours and be able to free up my time to be a totally present Mom with my family. That feels like a happy balance but unfortunately my blog will most likely be at the bottom of my work-list for awhile at least. This blog will most definitely still exist and I will continue to post but now it will just be random and not weekly. I hope you understand.
My “new way of life” started on Tuesday. In celebration of new beginnings I sent my kids off to school…
I put my car magnets up…
I met with a fabulous client and had a great session…
I went and chopped off 11.5 inches of hair and donated to locks of love…
And I felt like I stepped into a totally new way of being… me as a career woman doing Energy Medicine.
Freedom is what I feel!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
Until next time…
Peace to you,
Heaven rest, the baby sleeps,
We part for now, but I kiss her cheek,
Stroke her hand, smile, and stare,
Peacefulness is everywhere.
