Are we transforming from an age of information into an age of wisdom? Is it possible to do this with so much electronic noise and pollution of all sorts affecting our bodies, minds, hearts and souls?

Who owns it?

Wisdom is something like this; it’s clear insight with tons of good judgement and lots of experience living in the world. It’s learning how to listen, slow down, and take stock of a situation before taking action on it. The adrenaline rush accompanying the incessant stream information has hijacked our innate wisdom through instant gratification and lack of serious consequences for impulsive and planned out actions.

The lack of wisdom is visible in every area of our lives. We are constantly reacting to some stimulation or retracting from fear shoved at our vision, hearing and sensory receptors. Who is responsible for this tidal wave and why are we being pummeled into submission? Perhaps this is a planetary symptom of the imbalance of power between those who have it and those who don’t. People in authority are quite lacking in the pursuit of wisdom.  They want to own us and everything else. Wisdom has little to do with it.

Remember wisdom = insight, good judgement, experience.

The allure of power and the insult of corruption that accompanies power have removed the vehicle of wisdom required to properly balance power. Today, the power of a few subjugates the power of the many. The imbalance has put us into tilt mode where all must stop and reset, reevaluate, revise and eventually restore our work, play and family dynamics into something very new, and egalitarian.

Our governance was created by a small group of wise men who were inspired by the Divine under heat and pressure to create something new that would be more equal and beneficial for the many. Over time the balance has tilted and become skewed again toward the corrupt few. This is in the process of being corrected and redirected back toward the many creating uncertainty in every aspect of daily living. We naturally seek leadership in someone having wisdom. A person or persons who have good judgement in correcting relationships, clear insight to change what needs changing and knowing how to do so. Along with the intent for the good of the whole and hands on experience for what works.

Who wants it?

Does anyone want to admit to their wisdom and experience? So often it is attacked as old fashioned or not relevant. Will anyone listen and heed simple human wisdom ways? Wise woman ways? Wise man ways?  So much has been allowed so quickly in such disrespectful and degrading ways to our children, our senses, to humanity and to every creature and ecosystem on our planet.

The jobs of leadership are overwhelming to those who actually have and wield the wisdom. Fearful of being overpowered, quickly turned on, corrupted unwittingly and being thrust into a stinging sea of public opinion, wise leaders recognize these landmines and steer clear to navigate and avoid self destruction.  So the wise hide. The wise are content to lead their own inner game and inner circle. The wise lurk on the sidelines waiting for the smoke to clear and then maybe peek out to see what they may be able to help with within their closet community. And this is the blessing for all.

Who wields it?

The opportunity is here for you to step in with your nuggets of wisdom to assist in bringing forth new creation as the old regimes crumble. For as the ethers are awaiting the new energy, the new light, the new ideas, and the new technologies. We need our sages to help anchor the paradigms of love, clean food, clean free energy, and new money systems to evolve out of the ashes of destruction we are currently witnessing. Keep letting go of what no longer works.

Practice wielding your wisdom with grace. Allow the joy to beam through your heart and body. Shine your light through the masks of destruction and let the twinkle in your eye be a seed of wisdom or wit to share. Everyone needs it now more than ever before.

It is obvious and painfully visible that power over does not work. Power with was the plan and it has been withheld, interrupted and stolen from us. Even worse we have been robbed our life force and our livelihoods. As an emerging elder and conscious observer I am witnessing many repeating patterns of power over play out again and again. How do we create new patterns of wise power with each other?

Could it be time now to call for the wisdom of the creative feminine? Native people have had a council of elder women contributing with authority in difficult situations. Their insight, wisdom and experience has proven useful toward solutions toward peace and reconciliation. Turn our eyes, ears and hearts toward your elder women to see, feel, hear what’s needed for wisdom to be a large and necessary part of the new Earth paradigm that we are ALL in the midst of creating. The voices of wise women have been left out of the conversation and we are now paying for this lack of balance in our systems.


When you have a life lived it becomes clear that we humans are rebellious, egotistical, narcissistic and stubborn. These qualities are obstacles to change. As we age we learn as to how to manage and navigate the obstacles to joy and peace. We see in advance where to engage and where to avoid in order to produce our best outcome.  Avoid the pitfalls, engage the clear path… and know…

It is time to meditate.

It is time to pray.

It is time to consult the Divine.

It is time to engage the council of grandmothers and the wisdom of the creative feminine who have a stake in the game that is not about power or money or fame.

Clear your own path.

Discover your authentic truth of wise person.

Come to the table of the Divine. 

It’s time. 

My Crystal Journey Miracle Path to Reiki – A Silver Celebration

Twenty five years ago this weekend I received my level one Reiki Attunement and initiation into the world of Energy Healing. When I look back today I realize what a miracle it was and continues to be to this day. I didn’t know it then, but I received multiple blessings which brought me safely along the waves of shifting energies that I continue to experience to this day. You see I was an innocent traveler. I didn’t know what I was actually doing to myself by accepting the symbols and energeticsnof Reiki into my body, my brain, my heart, my hands and my energy field. It changed my life permanently and ultimately for the better. I awakened.

I was in my mid-thirties, married with one year old boy. Our lives were in transition in 1994. Husband was minimally working partly due to a DUI. I wanted to be at home to care for my baby and was living off a substantial commission I earned selling real estate in Boston. We were homeless having been asked to leave our sea side rental home in Brant Rock because we had a child and the landlord was concerned about lead paint. This was totally illegal but I could not bear a court fight. The plan was to move into my in-laws home in New Hampshire, but they rented it before we committed. So I moved with my husband and child into my mother’s rented condo with my brother living in the basement. All of our furnishings fit in the garage. This was the beginning of September. I did not know what lay ahead.

My mother had turned me onto this psychic reader in nearby Leicester. Her name was Grace and she had a metaphysical book and gift shop called The Crystal Journey. They made Reiki candles. She offered readings and classes along with the books, crystals and candles. I had a tarot reading with a man during a weekend event and he told me I was the high priestess with a fixed look on his face, as though he had never had that happen before. This stuck with me, because I instantly knew it was true. I was listening attentively to signs from the universe since I had recently read the Celestine Prophecy. That book opened my psychic awareness as I was receiving many psychic messages, and confirmation about the messages. Because of these intuitions I stayed interested in these new ideas about energy and healing. A path had opened before me and I kept following the marked trail. That was the first event at the Crystal Journey.

The next thing that happened at The Crystal Journey was I purchased an oracle card deck called The Mayan Oracle and that same day I signed up for an evening class about the Mayan calendar. It was being taught by a man who later became my Reiki 2 teacher. After I left and went home excited for my purchase I went to my bedroom and opened the cards. Surprisingly, I had 2 of the same card in the deck. Yeah doubles… What? A beautiful deep green glyph called Cimi. It is a card about surrender, letting go, releasing and forgiving. This was unusual and it was my very first oracle deck I ever purchased. I did not know what to make of it. However, I did come to discover that Cimi has been my most important teacher these 25 years. Letting go of so many ideas that are not mine has allowed me to emerge unto my true self.

When I went to the class I got my answer I got my answer about the double cards. The teacher talked about the Mayan Calendar and gave us our birthday signature glyph (like astrology). Mine was Cimi. Needless to say my eyes bugged out when I was told I was Cimi. I had two of these cards in my cellophane sealed deck that I opened only a few days before. Coincidence? No it is another clue and confirmation that I am in my right place.

My teacher also told me I was the same as him; a White Electric Wizard. Although I had no idea what that meant, I was honored to have been the same as the teacher. Am I a teacher also? Inside I always wanted to be one. My heart knows I am a teacher. I felt elated with this information because I recognized that I was in a flow of synchronicity described in The Celestine Prophecy. I wasn’t sure where I was going I only knew I had to keep taking another step in this direction.

Lastly, I took another step along this Crystal Journey path to get Reiki Certified. Years before my mother had attended a Barbara Brennan workshop and I was fascinated with the drawings of energy fields, chakras, and healers in her book “Hands of Light”. I never read it as it was a dense textbook and I was unable to understand it. I only observed the pictures and was fascinated by them. Two years later I enrolled as a student at The Barbara Brennan School of Healing where I was taught the next level of energy healing.

Grace told me Reiki was healing energy and even though I wasn’t fully aware of what Reiki was, I only knew that I had to have it. I wanted to heal. I wanted my life to feel better than it did. I wanted to be happy. So I went to learn about it. It started in the morning so I left early excited for a new path for myself. I had found it increasingly challenging to go back to the competitive, high pressure sales in my real estate job. I was exploring a new road that interested me. What is this healing energy all about?

This was a gloomy Saturday morning at the first of December. The days are short and lack of sun has its effects on a person. The town of Leicester is a small community outside of Worcester. The landscape is pastoral as many of the old colonial homes were once farms. The Crystal Journey was such in such a house off the main road. The front building was a grand colonial structure from the 1700’s; broad and boxy. There were outbuildings one of which was the two story updated shop and classroom areas. It was attached to the main house.

As I pulled up to the driveway that morning, I instantly went into shock and a state of disbelief, because there was no large old colonial structure from the 1700’s. Gone it was! Only smoldering coals remained on the scorched earth where the house had stood the day before. It had burned to the ground. What was left standing were outbuildings. The sign Crystal Journey perfect. The old farmstead home leveled, gone, destroyed. There was nothing, no remains of furniture, appliances, or personal effects. Nothing.

Feeling like I was in a dream, I went toward the shop to inquire if class was canceled. As I opened the door, I was astonished to see Grace there looking shocked, but she spoke to me. She told me class was still going to happen. OK? I said are you sure? She replied that she had called in the troops and that some friends were coming to teach on her behalf. I agreed and waited for the class to begin. The candle making process accidentally caused the fire the night before.

The next thing I noticed was that the shop interior and exterior was completely free of any smoke or water damage. I once had a fire in my home and the smoke damage goes everywhere. Here there was not a trace of any horrendous destruction, not a scent of smoke, not a carpet saturated, nothing at all. The interior of the shop was pristine and you smelled the sweet scent of fragrant incense. Remember I said the shop was attached to the large main house. How could this be? It was only 15 feet away. How could this be?

Even though I didn’t understand how it was possible I allowed myself to stay with the intended energy for Reiki and stay for the class. There were five students and four teachers. The class went on. Another miracle, but the magic of this is that those of us that were there that day received Reiki attunements from 4 teachers. Each teacher attuned every student. This means I got a quadruple blast of energy through the symbols and the initiation. It was extremely potent. The proof came during the 21 day purification and detox period where much was processed. Remember the dates beginning on 12-4-94 21 days and ending on 12-25-94. The time bomb was ticking. I was living with my family after being on my own for a long time and it is almost Christmas.

The proof was in the symptoms that occurred to me during the 21 days. I was waking up. I blew out light bulbs when turning on light switches and lamps. My hands turned a translucent blue. I was purging my bowels regularly too. Additionally, I found my guide Crow who was outside my bedroom window cawing at me to wake up and meditate every morning. And come Christmas day there was a huge blow out with my mother and my brother I could not tell you what it was about. I moved to New Hampshire a week later. I remained there to heal for 24 years. The forests and lakes of New Hampshire restored me to who I truly am. I am Cimi. I am an Energy Healer. I am a Teacher. I am an Artist. I am Love.

Reiki is a powerful life force for opening you up to receive energy flowing into a shut-down system. I was shut down from early childhood. Between adults telling me who I am to teachers telling me what to do and society telling what I should want, I had little room left for self exploration or self-expression. Reiki helped me discover what I am all about and I will forever be thankful.
