No Gold for It


Feb. 26, 2020

Hi Everyone,

A friend said, “My daughter is going back to her college campus. Her online classroom might be cheaper but college is more than classwork.”

We both looked at each other, nodded and said, “Wouldn’t take nothin for it! There is no amount of gold that I would exchange for my college education and experience.”

Much is said about how much gold (money) this one or that one has.

Is their life truly rich?

We don’t know about them. We know about us.

I have too many experiences and have gained too much as a result of those experiences that are worth more than gold (dollars).

I wouldn’t trade the experience of friends, community, music, art, beauty for money. I certainly wouldn’t trade my health or strength or wellness for gold.

I have the wisdom gained from years of observing, listening, studying. No one can put a price on wisdom or what I went through to gain that wisdom.

My life overflows with gold–the gold that can’t be brought or traded away or lost. I add to that gold daily.

Hope you know and value the gold in your life. Know that its yours–can’t be stolen or taken away–but can be used by you and others to make life richer, more satisfying.

Here’s to increasing the gold that matters.

Insight painting

Feb. 15, 2020

Hi Everyone,

Happy Valentine’s!!!!

This is Insight, a painting done as part of the Red Thread Study I am adding to my coaching and spiritual practice.

When I began this painting, I hated it; then I liked it; now I love it.

This hate then like now love is probably a pattern of mine.

The painting shows two medicine jars, a heart bursting with energy and one of the loves of my life-flowers. It also has 3 hearts and 3 triangles; all hidden but are some of the elements that show that this is one of my paintings.

Traditional turtle necks and long sleeves are also some of my favorite things.

It is good to take a look and see what is In Sight about one’s life.  In Sight makes us more conscious of who and what we are.





I think this modality is a fit for  you.  You came across with elegance and ease and wisdom.

I think all your training and education  come together with this modality.

Oh. and the red thread thing was really good…knowing I am here to serve those on my thread helps me tame my super hero “Save the world” mode I sometimes get into.

Feel free to use any of this as a testimony.

Thanks again,


PS A client has paid me $100 of the $325 she owes me; AND, another client has asked me to clear one of the properties she is thinking about buying.  LOL  Ain’t life fun?


To Teacher-coach Barbara:

Thank you for our coaching sessions.

On our first session, I ask for my money problems to be fixed. In the four weeks after that session, I received unexpected income from three different sources.

In today’s session, you helped me develop five questions to ask Spirit about fixing my money problems. As you said, we can ask as many questions as we like. I expect to receive clear answers that help solve my money problem permanately,

I will use the method you taught me to ask and receive answers and solutions.

Thank you,


My First Tree Woman Painting

Feb. 6, 2020

Hi Everyone,

One of My Tree Women



Here she is. In all her glory.  My first Tree Woman painting.  Actually, she is my first multi-media painting.

She is woman, firmly rooted, planting her wisdom, singing her song, and as she says in her mid-section: sending a message without saying a word.

When I knew that I had finished–the hardest thing about intuitive, process painting is knowing when to stop–my first reaction was “Oh gosh. How childish this piece is!”

My second reaction was “Wait a minute. This is who I am; teacher of young children; explainer of complex ideas; finder of outside-of-the-box-ideas that actually solve problems; so, of course, she looks young, excited, full of life.”

It was a moment of understanding and enlightenment.

So. Create your own moment.

Get some paper, crayons, pencils, chalks or get a canvas and some paints. Draw a tree. Any kind that comes to you to be drawn.  Once drawn, somewhere on your work will appear a face. Add plenty of colors, shapes and words. Stand back.

Take a long, deep look. Then journal the first word and following words that come to you.

What was revealed to you? What is your moment of understanding and enlightenment?

Savor the words and the feelings. Cherish your work.

No. She is not for sale.  I’m finding that I love my paintings too much to sell them; as my house gets more filled–I am furiously protecting the little bit of blank wall space that I have–I might change my mind.


One does not need talent or training to do intuitive, process work. The focus is on the process and what is revealed instead of focusing on creating beauty or something that follows all the rules.


Power of Purpose










Feb. 1, 2020

Hi Everyone,

My copy of “The Power of Purpose in Business” by Rhys Thomas came yesterday, Jan. 31, 2020. I have been a follower of Rhys for years.

He’s the guy who teaches the Profile System. His Profile System says that all of us fit into one of five profiles: creative idealists, emotional intelligence specialists, team players, charismatic leader and knowledge achievers.

Do not be put off by the word “business” in the title

For those of you who are in business or who want to be in business, this book is a God Send.

No matter. You, the reader, will gain clarity, the most priceless of all gifts, and wisdom, the second most priceless gifts.

I beg all of you to read and pay attention to the words about charismatic leaders; much will be made clear to you.
