Dear Marie,

You light up my day, so thank you!

My question is about finding my passion and life’s work. I have many interests and sometimes question the courage to go for it. What is my direction? Thank you.

Marcie

Dear Marcie,
Always start with what you love no matter what. Even if you think there’s no way it could possibly work out. I know what you’re thinking, “but I love so many things.” I disagree. I think you like many things but having deep, exciting love for something is very different than liking. You will definitely find it in 2011. It will most likely surprise you! The universe is prepared for you to discover it. Stop trying to figure it out and feel the gratitude that it’s already here (even if you have no idea what it is). Get excited for a few minutes every day (OMG, thank you so much for my fantastic life’s work) and before you know it, it will be here. P.S. As I write this, I’m seeing one of my clients who realized a few years ago that she is an astrologer. Her face won’t go away. That is a sign for me to tell you what I’m seeing. Now this vision doesn’t mean that astrology is your life’s work (it’s possible). What it does mean is that taking a class or studying astrology in some way will lead you there! And hey you’re already there, so congratulations!

Love,
Marie

Dear Marie,

I am single and have been single my whole life. I have been very busy most of my life and have never really wanted to get married. The last several years I have wanted a relationship with a man for a companion. I am feeling lonely and want a companion to travel with, go out to dinner, and do most of the outdoor activities I like. I would love to have a man as my best friend. I have been to so many astrologists, numerologists, psychics, and even Silvia Brown and so many others and they all say I will meet someone. I have so much money on these people and nothing has happened. I am starting to feel there is something wrong with me and that I feel too old for any man to be interested in me. I have had many past lives of being tortured and beaten and even killed by men that this life I chose to be independent and single so that no man would ever hurt me again. Now that I am older and almost ready for retirement, I want a companion to do fun stuff with, or as one person put it, have a playmate. I want to love someone and be loved. Can you see what is wrong with me and what I can do to change it? Between work and loneliness, I would not care if it all ended tomorrow so I could go home to the other side.
Maureen

Dear Maureen,

You are so cute. I don’t think you will be going home any time soon. The feelings you’re experiencing, wanting a partner, is serving a grand purpose. It’s helping you realize there is more to life than working hard and doing everything right. Desires are our souls talking to us, inspiring you to heal a part of you. Maintaining a feeling of desperation about not having a partner keeps it away. This is the tricky part of manifesting. If you keep wanting then you keep creating more wanting. Feel as if you’re already in a fantastic partnership with someone who is also your best friend (true partners are). Then, go out and have the fun you want. Don’t wait around for a partner to create the fun you want in your life. Start creating it yourself, and he will magically show up when you least expect it!

P.S. There’s nothing wrong with you. You are finally in a place in your life where you feel safe enough to trust yourself to make a great choice in a partner. Before now you chose to be alone. Not a bad choice. :)

Love,
Marie

Dear Marie,

You are such a joy and blessing. I enjoy your radio show and appreciate your positivity, clarity and generosity.

In 1992 I began a cycle of letting go of everything in my life. I moved away from my family, was divorced and living on my own and in 1998 left my career (working with children) of 17 years in health care to pursue a more natural path (Reiki, Birth Assistance, etc.) I was ready to live my true purpose. I could feel what I wanted my new life to be. It wasn’t long before I lost my energy. I felt unplugged from the earth and from life. I spent years removing toxins from all levels of my being-down to the DNA. Work has been minimal yet fulfilling. I have been in a cycle of loss (both my parents), letting go and solitude. Purging (energetic) has been constant for the past 12 years and can be very challenging and uncomfortable. I do have a perception of what is happening on a spiritual level but would appreciate your insight, suggestions to assist movement and/or if you see an end in sight?

Gratefully,
Yvonne

Dear Yvonne,

I just love your story. I think many people can relate to it. So here is the deal. You reached a certain level of consciousness mentally, emotionally and spiritually. However, you accidentally forgot about letting the consciousness resonate in your body. In my opinion the body is the easier area to transform. The mind, emotions and sprit take longer. Now, all you have to do is work on your bodies’ frequency every day. You have to choose to be happy no matter what. Allow your body to feel joy even when you might think it would be better to wait until there is more to be joyful about! It’s normal for the body to feel happiness and once you create a semi-consistent connection to more joy your body will do practically anything to keep the flow of happiness coming.

I would do the 17 second exercise taught by Ester and Jerry Hicks (that exercise changed my life). You will have to stop thinking about all the things you know about your health and trying to figure out what you can do to be well. None of the figuring out stuff is working, it’s only reminding your body of how sick it is and how much time it will take to get well. Stop your mind when you’re feeling sad, frustrated or disappointed and think of something (chocolate, sex, the ocean… anything) that allows you to feel happy and then hold the happy feeling for 17 seconds. If you drop the feeling before the 17 seconds are up, start again. The feeling must last for at least 17 seconds to erase thousands of hours of negative thinking. This is a powerful way to shift the physical frequency. Best of luck, were all waiting for you!

Love,
Marie

Dear Marie,

I have been feeling incredibly homesick. I cannot pinpoint WHY it is I feel this way since I have not lived home in over 10 years (I am missing my home state of Massachusetts… I currently reside in Colorado). I have also had a strong desire to be around water, more specifically an ocean. I sometimes cry when I think of the ocean. I do not know where to seek to understand why I have these strong feelings.
Thank you so much for your time.

Jenn

Dear Jenn,

I had to think of your question for a few minutes before the answer came to me. I got very excited for you when the answer arrived. I think you’re grieving! Seriously! Grieving is one of the most important transformational encounters a human being can have. It definitely means that something is coming down the pike for you. Not that moving is it (possible but mostly likely not). Many times, when the grieving is the most disorienting, it can mean that it is a sign that we are making a permanent change. We must always grieve who we were, before we can become more of who we truly are. Congratulations! Enjoy the grief. Know that it’s a gift. Nothing to fear and everything to celebrate!

Love,
Marie

Dear Marie,

I saw you a few years ago when I was attending a conference on child neglect. It just so happens you were giving a workshop on spirit guides in the hotel I was staying at. A friend convinced me to go to your workshop and I am glad I did.

My question is about my daughter. She is 20 years old and suffers with terrible headaches. She is an amazing daughter and it is really difficult to know how to best help her. She has been given medication in the past to help with the headaches, but the medicine has such terrible side affects that when she ran out one time and could not get a refill in a timely manner, I encouraged her to stop taking the medicine all together. I think part of the reason for her headaches has to do with anxiety and stress.

She was diagnosed with depression when she was about 16. She has been taking different medications since that time. Most recently, for the past two or three years she has been taking Lamictal and Guafacine. She has problems with memory; which I tend to think may be a side effect of the medication. A lot has changed in her life since she first started taking these medicines; however her doctor does not seem receptive to weaning her off the medications. I am concerned about these medications and I am just wondering how to best support her. My daughter is somewhat worried that her headaches are because of a brain tumor or something terrible. Any suggestions you could give me on how to best advocate for my daughter would be greatly appreciated. She is such a wonderful person. It’s hard to see her suffer with this headache pain.

Michelle

Dear Michelle,

I would ask that your daughter consider seeing a naturopath. Using natural medication should work better for her and get to the real root physical cause, which I think is hormonal. However on an emotional level, working on the root cause or energetic problem, your daughter is an intuitive. She is experiencing headaches because she doesn’t want to utilize her intuition. Intuition is a blessing and a birthright. But also sad when you first discover it and realize that the world is not what you thought it was. Perhaps the feeling is something similar to a young person who has discovered the meaning of war and that a terrible manifestation of it exists in their world. Your daughter needs to give into her feelings and knowingness and learn truths that can set her free instead of shutting her insight down with disturbing pain. The pain of reality will fade because intuition also shows us the beauty in all things, including oneself.

P.S. I would suggest a simple prayer to say at night as she is falling asleep. “Every day and in every way my intuition becomes alive. Its kind knowingness shines through my day, lighting my way!”

Love,
Marie

Dear Marie,

I have been struggling AGAIN within a relationship/marriage that had been ongoing for 24 years. One and a half years ago this relationship seemed to naturally just come to a close. I felt very peaceful and relieved actually. I felt like I was getting on with my life quite well.

Suddenly after having been on my own for 10 months I found myself allowing this partner to once again reel me back in with his kind words and seeming remorse for what had gone down between us. Since, I feel like a lot of his actions that made me not want to be with him anymore in the first place, are now obviously in front of me once again. When I try to tell him how I feel he will reply with “you just need to let it go.” Not, gee I’m sorry and wish I had not done that and let’s try to move on in a better space from here. I feel his response as being totally unwilling to accept responsibility for his actions. “That’s in the past and I can’t change that” is his response.

Now for the past 8 months I have seen myself again settling and trying to accept things I see in my partner that do not resound with my being. Sometimes I feel like I’m guilty of trying to control him. I then try to let it go and live my life but this stuff I feel in my mind just seems to be screaming louder. I am trying to be more accepting and not judge. The situation is like a dual life my ex seems to play. He has few friends but the ones he does have like to smoke pot and drink and one abuses narcotics. My partner has always liked to smoke pot but hid this from me over the years because he knew I did not approve. These friends of his, he says, are afraid of me because I will judge them if they came around. He sees them on separate occasions and does what they do. Then when he is with me, he acts out the other part of what he believes I expect from him. I am so frustrated with my inability to live authentically with him, and he with me, and AGAIN find myself in the place of wanting to separate again.

Thank you for any thoughts you can give me on this.

I have had a past personal session with you and believe I may be due for another!

MJ

Dear MJ,

I think you should leave. Your partner doesn’t have to change for you. He doesn’t have to stop smoking pot for you. He gets to be himself; in fact I highly encourage it. And if the type of person he is, isn’t the type of person you what in your life then you should leave. I think you’re afraid that if you leave he might just change and be more like the person you want, and he might. The truth is, if he were your life partner you would love what he does and you would grow together in fantastic ways. So instead, choose you and try to focus your energy on something different.

All my love,

Marie

Dear Marie,

I have a daughter who is in her 30’s now with two children and a husband but is really struggling to keep afloat. Both are without work. My daughter is getting real sick with worry called cy can’t relax. The CVS gets so severe that she gets stomach cramps & dehydrated cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) she gets so worried she turns herself into a knot and then ends up vomiting. I, and many others have tired to tell her to relax but she says she doesn’t know how. She currently does not have any insurance. Can you recommend something to help her?

Victoria

Dear Victoria,

Sorry about your daughters health issue. She has had anxiety for years from what I can see. She channels her anxiety deep into her body rather than finding an external outlet. When she gets in the cyclic mode her electrolytes become unbalanced. This can lead to other potential health problems. Your daughter needs to find ways to feel good about her. This will help her decrease the way she copes with anxiety and also help her create the success she wants in her life.

I would recommend that she do mirror work. Looking in the mirror and saying loving and kind things to her. Even if she were to deny it, I think she has strong feelings of self-loathing. Some phrases she could try in the mirror are:

I’m amazing
I’m learning to love this woman in the mirror
I’m successful in every area of my life

She may not want to do this exercise. And if she does, it may not feel very good at first. Ask her to keep it up until things begin to change externally in her life.

P.S. Please stop worrying about her. Instead, see your daughter healthy, happy and employed. Your positive feelings and visions for her will help!

Love,
Marie
