There may be challenging moments in our lives where one would have to be a robot not to be worried. You may be given really scary news that could be really alarming. I’ve been there and somehow some part of me went “okay the outcome looks really dreadful and yet maybe it won’t be as bad as they say.” And sometimes, the outcome may be as unwanted as predicted. If anyone were to tell me nothing unwanted ever happens, in my opinion we must not be on the
Some of you may have heard of the song that starts with ‘Mama said there’ll be days like this’ – it’s a real oldie (1961) and this morning as I sat down to write it popped into my mind. Hearing that in my head took me back to my pre-teen youth club days, now that’s really going back in time! I was having a good morning, lots of sunshine, all was bright and cheerful so I wondered why those words popped into my head. The song is about a person who is reminded by her mother not to
Recently I came across a BBC series in their Reel section discussing this very topic. It gives two equally convincing theories: one that the future is already predetermined and that the future has already happened in the block universe and the other theory indicates that there are variables and infinite possibilities of the future in the block universe. One suggests we have no free will at all even though we appear to make choices and the other suggests infinite

Last week during one of our classes on SWEET and maintaining energy integrity, several people were surprised to learn something about themselves. These were people who would say they look after themselves, have a healthy lifestyle and take time for themselves. I think if you asked them they would say they have a clear sense of what wellness means to them and as a rule they practise self-care. Here’s the surprise they discovered.
You know the feeling. You wake up feeling fatigued and there isn’t much you can do to feel better. You are tired and you don’t know why. It feels like you can’t get your vitality back . Discover SWEET, a fantastic way to improve the energy in your life! SWEET is an energy clearing method for the modern world. SWEET stands for Self-Wellness Energy Evaluation Technique.
Sunflowers and I have had a budding relationship. Okay, pardon the pun, the words came to me that way and many of you know I have a kind of corny sense of humour. Years ago sunflowers spooked me as with their turning to follow the sun, I felt they also appeared to turn to follow me! That was a little creepy to my young and vivid imagination. I really wasn’t sure I wanted them in my garden and could admire them from afar.
If I were to ask a group of people what their idea of self- care was and whether they thought this was important, I imagine I would get all sorts of answers, some similar and some completely different. Sometimes we are in alignment and other times, in our efforts to assist others or in being over-achievers we may end up off track. I see some people who are running on empty energy-wise and they say to me, “but I look after myself, I buy myself anything I want, I have my spa days and I exercise even when I’m exhausted.”
My father and I had a very interesting arrangement which must have been a soul understanding. I only saw him for the first three years of my life and there was a huge gap of forty three years before we met again. When we reconnected we had only had two times that we actually met and sat down together. The first time we met he came and visited us here at our farm. The second time was at his home in Ottawa. The reason I’m mentioning him is because something he said to me on that second visit has stuck with me since he said it in 1996.
Yesterday as I sat down to write the article for today, words came to me really quickly and easily. At this moment I cannot even remember why I stopped writing and when I write, all my pages are automatically saved in the cloud so I did not give it another thought and I went about the rest of my day. Today as I looked through everything I could not find that page at all! It isn’t in my drafts and seems have to have disappeared into another dimension!
This Thursday some of us, weather permitting, will be able to see the solar eclipse which occurs with a new moon. Not being an astrologer, the perspective I offer comes from a place of being aware and sensitive to energies and frequencies, and I intuit what may be expected and offer ways to deal with these frequency shifts.
As I sat down today to write my post for this week I realized that the two topics I had in mind were actually for some other time. Instead, my intuition pointed me in a different direction and since I have learned it is really wise to listen to it I find myself writing a post that has yet to have a title! I guess this is what they call ‘being in the flow. I have learned to listen to this inner voice. Sometimes my mind has overridden this intention and those were times where I discovered that listening to my intuition would have been more efficient if nothing else!
We are about to have our first lunar eclipse of this decade. I do not have an astrology background and I leave that to the astrologers to share their knowledge […]
Do you feel stuck?
Are things progressing at a much slower pace than you desire?
Do you feel unsure about how to go about changing your present circumstances?
Is your present situation ‘okay’ and yet you feel it could be more fulfilling?
Are you ready for more clarity and direction and a leap in a more positive direction?
Join Sandra for this three hour online Heart Metta Playshop:Today I am getting out of my own way!
It has been over a year since most of us have had to deal with severe travel restrictions and it has been decades since I have been in one location for so long! For some of you, this restriction is being lifted while for others, including myself, we are still in lockdown. So with our ongoing limitations of travel why did the phase ‘here, there and everywhere’ pop into my mind when I sat down to write today?
Another new moon is here and with it, new beginnings. Here at the farm there are signs of new growth everywhere. The daffodils are blooming in the woods and many of our trees and bushes are in bud and others are already blooming. The photo in this post is of an apple tree that is over fifty years old. Its trunk is all gnarled and cracked in places and yet each year it flowers and still produces apples.
What is Divine Timing? Some believe in destiny – the stars align for a certain event and it takes place. Others may believe it is all in God’s hand and whatever happens is the will of God and will only occur then. Others believe in fate, it is cast and there is no escaping it. To me, there is no right or wrong answer, it is a matter of what resonates with us. In my own experience I have found co-creation exists for me. We can work at manifesting what we want, when we want it, as much as possible and if we are resonating
The Little Engine That Could – most of us are familiar with that story. Keep on going and eventually you will get there. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try, again. All those affirmations and people suggesting to you “Fake it till you make it”. These sound so good in theory, getting everyday results we want may not be easy at all and affirmations could even have a detrimental effect because they appear so far from the existing situation!
I know people study game theory, people have jobs doing risk assessment, they review as much as possible carefully and make decisions based on their findings. I sense I have a different kind of ‘game theory’. Some of my loved ones call it my being ‘woo-woo’ (an upgrade from ‘whacko’ from previous years). I hesitate to give it any kind of label. What I am very comfortable with is listening to my intuition.
What do you see in this photo – a pretty yellow flower with nutritious leaves for a salad or a weed? One person’s salad addition is another person’s weed. You could pick this out of the ground and enjoy it or be upset this flower is growing where you hadn’t intended. What is your daily attitude when life isn’t exactly the way you’d like? Is it energy enhancing or energy depleting?
One time many years ago I overworked my body and was really depleted energetically. I had been holding space during a disaster recovery project and I had no idea I was overdoing it. My body got so out of whack I could hardly keep water down, let alone any food. When I returned from that trip a friend of mine who is a Qigong Master said to me “ Sandra, I don’t understand you. I see you are such a good tenant when it comes to your apartment, you look after it as if it were your own place.
I had a mini breakthrough last week and it brought me huge A-ha moment. Long story short, I had bought an insert for my desk months ago, thinking it would help organize the stuff in my desk drawer. The insert arrived and every day I would see this thing sitting in the corner of my room. It was hard to miss since it was 18 inches wide and 14 inches deep! That thing sat there for five months. I would look at it and give myself the usual “ I’ll do it soon.” I really wore my crown of procrastination well. Looking at it for yet another time, I asked myself why I had not organized my drawer. Nothing obvious came to mind, I really had no excuses or reasons.
Are you tired of trying all sorts of self-help programs that don’t seem to be effective? Getting fed up with same old, same old, all talk and no progress? Still searching for a user-friendly modality where you can begin to see shifts within yourself almost immediately? Are you ready to stretch and grow in the direction you’ve only dream about? Join us for this brand new way to learn Heart Metta™ from the comfort of your own home.
If at first you don’t succeed… go about it differently!
How many times do we assume something is unattainable, some things can only be done by ‘experts’, some things are beyond our ability to learn? I have been irritated at myself at times when my attempts to get something to work seemed in vain (hello WordPress!) and when I asked people to assist me, their solutions were so simple and obvious! In previous years I would have wanted to kick myself. These days I deal with those situations with a lot more kindness to myself and I add these three words “obvious to them”.
Recently I broke an old pattern of procrastination. I am not sure when that old pattern was established; whenever I created it, I did a really good job! Often we go into our heads to analyze, dissect and cross-examine all the reasons why we do or omit to do something. I have discovered the best results occur and habits and patterns change when I ask myself this one question: “Does this attitude and behaviour serve me?” When we decide it no longer serves our best interests and our best interests matter it is a lot easier to shift to a new way of thinking and behaving. When we change our internal reality, our outside world changes too!

People often ask me how I can be equally comfortable on our farm in Prince Edward County or in busy cities like Hong Kong and Tokyo. First of all I make sure ‘all of me’ knows where I am! This may sound a bit strange to some – as you become more familiar with managing your energy field you can check to see if all of you is present in the same place and time zone. I have met some people who enjoyed a vacation so much they left a part on vacation and then thought they didn’t get over jet lag 🙂
