How and Why

Do you ever wonder why I do what I do the way I do it? 

Read on - and be sure you read all the way through to the end to find answers missing in your own life.

While working in crisis care as a psychotherapist in 1996, a very dangerous client attacked me leaving me with a life-altering Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) that forced me to go within.

The gift?

I always look for the gift in any situation. In fact, the psychologist at the brain rehab center told me that the only people he saw heal from TBIs were those who, like me, looked for and found the gift in the injury and all the life-changing aftermath.

I shared my story - which includes my healing - no, I did not get to be how and who I was before the event. Healing is accepting where you are in the present and moving forward from there.

Interestingly, as I shared what I discovered with others who felt stuck in many areas of life, I developed a fan base without even realizing it. People sought all kinds of advice to create their own healing. I saw the need for a regular system to communicate with all of them.

I announced my new newsletter, Getting Unstuck, and 100 people immediately signed up and started reading it - and asking me questions to which I replied. I created products to meet their needs and did many teleconference calls. Back then we did phone conferencing. There was no Zoom.

As you will soon learn - either by watching the video or listening to the audio, this episode of my podcast. Let's Get Metaphysical: Connecting Heart and Mind, describes, in detail, what happened for me (nothing happens to us but rather for us), specifically how the Universe contrived to move me out of the world that did not make sense to me and into one of service far more powerful than anything I learned in college and beyond studying and doing talk therapy for many decades.

I had ignored the whispers of the Universe so it got louder and louder until finally it yelled at me and took me out of that world kinda kicking and screaming - so to speak. As you will discover in this episode, I had no alternative but to go within. Doing so allowed me to discover who I really am. Ultimately that adventure led to my learning how to communicate directly with my Spirit, Guides, Angels AND the Universe.

I know, without doubt, I could not have healed without finding the world of energy practitioners. The sixteen mainstream medical people I saw (the workplace really did not want to lose my services and got me into see people including those with 3 month long waiting lists - only they rushed me in). Not one of them had anything to offer. 

They told me it was all in my head  - either indicating my brain was swollen and injured and they had no clue how to help OR they told me I was imagining my symptoms.

So you know, the nurse in charge of my case, after three long years of suffering, finally found the test that none of the experts ever ran when making their pronouncements of doom stated as, "This is as good as it gets. Learn to live with it." That single test showed the part of my brain where the injury was still apparent and finally a protocol and specialist outside of mainstream medicine, became part of my routine.

However, what the developmental optometrist did showed some improvement and lots of hope as he knew what was wrong and how to help, but his program took forever to actually make a difference.

Thankfully, the UnIverse presented me with my intended (without my knowledge) soon to become my new field of expertise - energy healing. In this arena I would flourish first with my own healing and then by working with hundreds of people who also found no help in mainstream medicine.

All that inner talk has been going on all your life. It is your norm! You have no awareness that one voice is not even yours - and that is the one keeping you stuck, discouraged, and feeling ho hum at best.

I wrote a special report describing both voices and how they play out in your life. Download your copy now.

True Happiness Is…

​True happiness - it's what we want in life, yes? ​ ​We do things we may not like so we can earn the money and the time and get the energy to buy and do things that make us happy.

Only that definition of happiness totally misses the point.

​Circumstances are unrelated to happiness.​

Discover the Generous, Loving Energy of Money

Do you believe that money is “neutral,” in that it only holds the power we give to it?

What if money actually wants you to succeed, to experience vitality and joy, to thrive in your relationships… and to fulfill your soul’s calling?

Leading author, money consciousness teacher, and coach Sarah McCrum teaches us that money simply wants for you what your soul wants for you…

Yet, many of us learned to avoid money because we didn't want to confront the issues and feelings we have about money… namely, fear, guilt, and shame.

On Wednesday, June 19, Sarah will share her precise and practical methods to help you begin clearing your emotional blocks and beliefs around money…

… enabling you to see that money is inviting you into a loving, intimate relationship that will beautify your life and help you manifest your gifts while expressing more love in the world.

You can reserve your space here for Discover the Generous, Loving Energy of Money: Ignite the Healing Power of Money in Every Area Of Your Life:

During this complimentary online event, you’ll discover:

  • How guilt, shame, and judgement around money keep you stuck, leaving you unable to face money and receive its love and generosity
  • Money is aligned with the deep wishes of your soul and your true purpose
  • A guided healing to clear blocks around money and raise your vibration to align with the energy of love
  • Why “making beautiful requests” is the most natural way to engage with the energy of money — and how to do this so it works for you!
  • Grounded insights about money “triggers” and cultural patterns which you may unwittingly be buying into — and how to release them

If you don’t allow money to love you, your soul is on some level unable to fully express itself through you, says Sarah.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to redefine the way you see and relate to money so that you can effortlessly align with its generous, creative energy… and in a way which is conscious and supportive of your deepest values.
