Luca’s words of wisdom, “Love wins”. He offered this wisdom while listening to a friend and I talk about relationships.
Clyde spends his days in the back yard. Sometimes he comes in by himself in the late afternoon. Yesterday evening, he did not want to come in. It was a perfect beautiful day. He kept running around the yard doing zoomies and clicking his hind legs like an Irishman in play. He runs at me as fast as he can and then runs under Hudson like a tunnel. This photo was taken right before he let me pick him up. It’s his last plead to being able to stay out longer. “Come on, mom. It’s so nice out. I’ll come in right after dark.” He has a big salad waiting for him inside so he was happy once he was in.
When we are all too tired to walk: Luca (poodle) says, “Sometimes I just want to be left alone so I can feel the good earth underneath me.” Easter says, “I have done all the exploring I can for today. I will now let the experience come to me.” Felix says, “It is nice to be here in the present moment.”

Living In Joy
First published in the Santa Barbara News-Press
March 20, 2019
I used to feel so much suffering of others that I would spend a full day in bed each week, literally sleeping just to feel “normal”. I once spoke to a bear actor whose kidneys were in so much pain that the next day my back went out and I could not walk for three days, I have cried countless nights over clients animals dying of cancer, bunnies getting beauty products poured in their eyes, or people I know dying.
On my days off, I stayed in the woods avoiding people so that I didn’t have to feel the pain that I saw in their eyes. To take away the terror I saw in the world, I tried: meditating, juice fasting, bananas, sugar, herbs, salt baths, smudging sage, swimming, surfing, dirt bike riding, smoking pot, riding horses, calling in angels for protection, yoga, putting gold light around me, reading, neflix binges, countless hours of audible and podcast listening. All of them sustaining me into normalcy. What has helped me the most? The woods, audible, swimming, meditating, bananas, juicing, and spiritual protection are all a part of my daily routine with some of the others mixed in.
To be a great psychic, one has to know themselves. Know your thoughts, feelings and associations so that you can decipher what’s streaming through your consciousness. One has to be committed to self-growth and climb that ladder of self-discovery. One must be able say to yourself or others, “I got it wrong. I am sorry. I messed up.” or, “It wasn’t my fault. What can I learn from this in order to help myself and others out of suffering?”
I have never had a problem with having compassion for others’ plights, but this too is a lesson. It’s important to have boundaries on how other’s actions effect you. Whether it’s a person who is not dealing with their own stuff or a dog who is acting aggressive on a walk, there should still be boundaries. Once I realized that others’ pasts are not an excuse to stay in the pattern of bad behavior, some people drifted away while others started to show up in unexpected ways. People respected me and the animals stepped into more peaceful roles. I was content, but I still wasn’t living my fullest potential.
Because my heart was a sponge to suffering, I felt guilty for being happy when so many are hurting. I could rejoice in others happiness but felt guilty for my own. I realize now, we don’t have to suffer with the world just because we are committed to helping it. Of course, there are times when the sadness overtakes us, but it doesn’t have to rule us. Why didn’t I see this before? I intellectually knew it, but did I not feel worthy of feeling my own joy?
I saw all the beauty in secret. The people that smile engaged in a passion, flowers that are blooming, the way the light shines off the ocean, the animals that are miraculously healing, the intense love I receive from people about my work, the way my spirit feels when I make love, meditate, surf and swim and how it feels to share an accomplishment or an awesome idea. Why did I hold that in secret, not letting it radiate from my heart?
I don’t have to stay in the frequency of the suffering that I deal with daily. It’s ok to experience more bliss than suffering. The pains of the world still matter if I go out into the world radiating joy.
Won’t we be more productive working through hearts continually fueled by love than hearts constantly suffering with others? Do many of us need to ask ourselves this?
Makia my late cat once said,
“Make joy a priority.”
Happy Easter! It was two years ago today that Hudson came out of the woods with his best find ever, Easter! Happy Gotcha Day, Easter! Easter says, “The night before I was found, I slept with wild bunnies. I learned that after something scary comes something great. I’m glad Hudson and I found each other. I am staying in this family forever. I am happy. But don’t leave your animals in the woods. That’s not nice….mom says an angel told my old person to do it so we would find each other. I am happier now.”
Seamora went out early today and went immediately to take a bath. She says, “It’s lovely weather to bathe. Today I am the first bird to take a bath. I wonder if they (all the wild birds) are all watching me. I think they are.”
