You’ve got to wonder in our messed up society how a young woman falling in love with a vampire is so hugely romanticized and how this is right up there with Harry Potter in sales. Women love it! O.K. for all you ladies out there. What is wrong with this picture?
This is a man torn between his desire to snuff out her life, because it is his nature, and his desire to love her, because her life-force makes him feel alive. And she…our loved starved heroine says to him “I would die to be with you.”
This story is a great example of how women fall for the mystery of the “dark masculine” the “bad boy” the charismatic, aloof, tension creating love interest who keeps us lost and confused, and always at the edge of our seat wondering what’s next.
Because this is a movie, and the writer can make it anything she wants to, our romeo vampire actually has a heart and it would kill him inside to hurt her. But in real life, folks, after the relationship lost it’s newness and she pissed him off one too many times he would probably eat her for dinner.
In my musical life there has been one constant and that is people feeling that I need to write happy music. Even today, after my Internet Concert I heard someone telling me. “Now that you’ve taken the journey through darkness maybe you could start writing ‘happy’ music.” I felt this was a good time to respond to this request.
There is a song out there we’ve all heard “Don’t Worry Be Happy!” Its a bouncy little tune that has people singing and whistling along. And it is really a wonderful song. However it is not my song! I’m not inspired by “Don’t Worry Be Happy!” I am inspired by the passion of awakening! That is what calls me into my studio to create music. When I feel the build up of emotion welling up from deep within me I am drawn to express that emotion in the most powerful form I have; my music!
Being that I am a sensitive and psychically pick up the emotions of others, I have found my music to be a great outlet for expressing that energy as well. For example; I wrote the song “Demon Lover” about the dark masculine archetype as a way of processing through all the energy accumulated session after session working with people who have been abused by someone with narcissistic personality disorder. This is my field of work and I love it. I love to help others to take that journey through darkness and back into the light. And I find music to be a powerful part of this journey. It helps to tap into and unlock emotions that have been supressed. Someone who is struggling with the “demon lover” archetype could listen to that song and burst into tears, not because the song itself is sad, but because it expresses the very emotion they have been supressing for a long time. Perhaps during their entire relationship they didn’t feel permission to express their pain and now that they are out they finally realize how much they have stuffed it down. So the music lends itself to their process of tapping into and expressing emotion that needs to be released in order for healing to occur. Read the rest of this entry »
I was certified in Clinical Hypnotherapy in 1988 after my first husband stopped a three pack a day cigarette habit in one hypnotherapy session. I was so impressed that I signed up for the same school his hypnotherapist went through and six months later I was Certified. Those six months were some of the most powerful months in my life up until that point. I realized the subconscious mind’s power and how we can influence it to help us get the results we want in our lives.
This new modality was so powerful for me that I set up my own practice in Clinical Hypnotherapy and started taking clients working on everything from weight loss, eating disorders, smoking, phobia’s and depression. For those intimidated by the process of hypnotherapy I practiced a Holistic form of counseling and sometimes I used a combination of the two.
As the years went on and I went through some extreme personal challenges I closed my practice and only did hypnotherapy now and then. My life moved along a much more spiritual journey with a lot of self-reflection and deep soul searching. I made the journey through the dark night of the soul and back into the light. My work changed to include more shamanic practices such as soul retrieval, psychic chord cutting and inner journey work. And then….I came full circle. I realized that hypnotherapy was still as powerful in helping others to make lasting changes in a short amount of time. I just wasn’t using it. Read the rest of this entry »
I recently wrote an article on “The Law of Attraction” which is a very important universal law to understand in today’s economy. Fear and uncertainty is the prevailing energy that surrounds us and if not careful we can easily be absorbed into this vortex.
If you spend much time reading newspapers, magazines and listening to the news you are constantly bombarded with negativity around our economy. With too much exposure to this negative energy wave you are likely to develop “recession consciousness” which comes with the belief that there isn’t enough.
On a daily basis I hear people talk about the economy from a doom and gloom perspective. “I can’t afford this because of the economy.” I even heard my seventeen year old son’s friend tell me it is impossible to get a job because of the economy. I don’t think he was prepared for the “metaphysical MOM” speech that shot his theories out of the water. I explained to him that there are plenty of jobs for someone like him out there, he just needed to attract them.
In these economic times some will hit rock bottom because they are victims of “the negative economy mindset.” However others will thrive, because there is always opportunity springing forth, especially when the mainstream mindset is gloom. Read the rest of this entry »
