I saw this posted on a website somewhere, and being into mediumship, I thought I would repost it as it is interesting. It is the top 10 things dead people want to tell living people.

December 28, 2011
Someone posted a quote that I thought was interesting... A person cannot see himself in a running stream. He can only see himself in calm waters.

December 26, 2011
I participated in my first dog rescue today. What I saw horrified me.

December 23, 2011
Energies and holidays. Putting out the right energies.

December 22, 2011
A while ago, I got notice that my high school was having a class reunion, or should I say another class reunion. To date, I haven't been to any, and I really don't plan on going. But it does make me think, what do people expect when you go to a class reunion? And then the next thought, why should one feel they should live up to those expectations?

December 20, 2011
My latest client today came out of the treatment room in tears, and it was not because I was beating on her. She had just had a truly amazing emotional release through the massage session. After I left her in the room, and she realized what had just happened, she just burst into tears.

December 16, 2011
Recently, massage therapists have been quite upset at Apple computers. It seems their new personal assistant for the iPhone4s has been directing people to them for sex.

December 14, 2011
I did my first Lomi Lomi massage today in three months. Now I need a massage.

December 10, 2011
A client told me something today that made me laugh.

November 9, 2011
I heard something kind of interesting today. Your dreams are your brain taking a dump at the end of the day.

October 27, 2011
I attended a mediumship class this evening. As part of a class exercise, we did speaking and writing off the tops of our heads. This is called Inspired speaking and Writing and the information comes from outside.

October 22, 2011
Fear. Why does it always come down to fear? We control things through fear. We are always afraid of something bad happening to the point that we want to do the right thing simply to avoid the bad thing. And that is being controlled by fear.

October 8, 2011
We had a very good Reiki 1 class today, and interesting as well.

October 4, 2011
I do a regular trade with an acupuncturist. On me, she will do needles, or Reiki, or massage. On her, I will do massage or Reiki, or any number of energy modalities. Today, she asked for a reading. Uhhhh...

September 29, 2011
What is strength? Are we strong, or do we just think we are? Is it being physically strong, or is it the belief that makes us so?

September 22, 2011
Well, this has been a week for old clients, and I don’t mean those that are geriatric.

September 20, 2011
I had disturbing news from one of my clients today. She has decided to go ahead with the double mastectomy to get rid of breast cancer.

September 19, 2011
I happened to run into a posting online that gave the “Empath’s Commandments”. I found many of them to be too true, and many of them to be things I ignore too often.

September 14, 2011
I had a visit from the lady that Marilyn and I counseled not too long ago… the one that had been suicidal.

September 12, 2011
Yesterday marked the 10th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center in New York. As part of what went on were endless news specials of things that happened that day, and one that impressed me was about the boat evacuation of people from Manhattan. And one of the things someone said impressed me.

September 11, 2011
Today marks 10 years since that WTF moment that changed the lives of everyone in this country. Consequently, it was 10 years ago today that I was supposed to have the first night of massage school. At least they had the sense enough to cancel classes that evening.

September 7, 2011
I had a visit today from the crystal fairy. Ok, well maybe not, but close enough.

September 4, 2011
This year, being a massage therapist licensing period, Caring Palms has been teaching a lot of classes. In fact, when massage licensing happened two years ago, Caring Palms taught 92 students that entire year. This year, Caring Palms has taught 95 students, and the year is not over yet. More classes are scheduled and many are already confirmed.

September 3, 2011
Well, the rush is finally over. The licensing renewal period for massage therapists has come and gone. Caring Palms did its part by scheduling classes as often as possible including a Reiki 1 and a Reiki 2 on the last two days of the period.

September 2, 2011
How do you say goodbye to a dear friend? To one you have known and loved for the last 10 years? One that was always by your side with a big smile and a wagging tail?

September 1, 2011
Yesterday, the licensing period for massage therapists ended. And I just came off a two day marathon class session. We had Reiki 1 on Tuesday, and Reiki 2 yesterday (Wednesday). It was fun.

August 11, 2011
I find it strange that I decide to do something new after all this time. It is something I really should have been doing since the beginning, but didn't. After 200 some odd students, I have started taking a class photo at the end of each class.

August 10, 2011
Now, I know I have had classes that formed really strangely, but today's has to be in the top two. This class literally pulled together in the eleventh hour.

August 4, 2011
Now, I really don’t dislike sales people, but there are those that drive me crazy, especially those that can't take 'no' for and answer. It is starting to look like salesmanship is a lost art. We have people that don't know how to talk, those that are rude, and my favorite. . . the ones that feel their opening line has to be a lie.

July 28, 2011
I had a visit today by the lady I saw a month ago that had been suicidal.

July 20, 2011
Why is it that all too many sales spiels start off with a lie? I mean, I find a lie to be the worst way to introduce ones self.

July 10, 2011
It was Friday on Sunday. Or more precisely, I saw Friday on Sunday.

July 3, 2011
I did a long massage on someone today to get one important release.

June 30, 2011
I worked on a friend today that I have not seen in eight years. She kept telling her new husband, that I give the best massages that she has ever had. I was hoping I could live up to the memory.

June 28, 2011
I worked on a lady today with the help of my mediumship teacher, and oh what a wild ride that was.

June 26, 2011
Well, I heard from my client with Fibromyalgia today, at least I heard from her mother.

June 22, 2011
I worked on someone today where I was completely clueless, and was just hoping for something to show a small bit of progress.

June 21, 2011
I wanted to share some Hawaiian words that were talked about in my last Lomi class. I think they are pretty profound.

June 20, 2011
I was talking to a student today, and we got to talking about telling the universe what we want. But more importantly is what you realistically can ask for, and receive.

June 18, 2011
We are a society that is set on failure. Because everything we make is designed to fail. And that stems from... what else... greed.

June 15, 2011
Shall we dance? Any healing session is a dance where two people come together to become one for a while, then part. They become partners in a process, the process of healing. They work for the best results, making the most of their time together, client and therapist as one. When that happens, it is a beautiful thing.

June 14, 2011
There are times when I am not forceful enough, when I don’t stand up for myself enough. Thinking back, this past weekend was one of those times.

June 13, 2011
Just came from my third workshop on Hawaiian Temple Lomi Lomi taught by Tom Cochran, and although it was very upbeat and ended well, there were some real issues and real problems, and it all came down to a couple students.

June 9, 2011
I got mail from one of my Body Mechanics students today, and it was really nice to hear the feedback.

June 8, 2011
There is something that we want to do. It could be a task that needs doing, or an improvement that we want to make, maybe even in ourselves. The questions is. . . do we get motivated, or do we get inspired?

May 16, 2011
I just came off my first Body Mechanics course for this year. It was a truly wonderful experience, but I think I might have problems seeing. I think I have flash blindness from all the light bulbs going off in people’s heads during the class.

May 10, 2011
Two days ago, I worked on a real dog. Yep. Four legs, furry, wagging tail.

May 6, 2011
A friend pointed me to an article written by a Reiki master that quoted this line. I remember the line from an old science fiction TV show where one person was trying to ready another for a fight. But the line originally, "Be Like Water" came from actor and famed martial artist Bruce Lee.

May 4, 2011
More pressure. More pressure. No, less pressure. Back off, dammit!

April 27, 2011
We had a moment in our mediumship class today that was funny.

April 19, 2011
If I had a nickel for every time someone said "I didn't know I hurt there. . . "

April 18, 2011
Today, we want miracle cures and solutions. Why with medical science as advanced as it is, there should be nothing that can't be cured. That's right isn't it? We want to lose weight by taking a pill, or be healthier by drinking some blue or green concoction. But what part are we leaving out? Us.

April 14, 2011
I do trades with an acupuncturist now and then. She has moved to a new office and brought me over to help clean it. No, we’re not talking about getting out a bucket and some cleaning products.

April 2, 2011
This last week, I had three people coming in for deep tissue and getting MFR instead.

March 24, 2011
I just did the most awesome mediumship reading I have ever done. And after yesterday’s ‘attempt’, I feel really good now.

March 20, 2011
Can we interject some amount of common sense now? Does every stupid thing people do need to be regulated by the government?

March 15, 2011
My client today told me I was a pain in her ass.

March 14, 2011
I had a new client in today that came for a Reiki session. He had been through a lot of abuse in his life, and that was taking its toll mentally and energetically.

February 7, 2011
Heart and mind. Heart and mind. What are they? What is the connection? Which one should rule?

February 4, 2011
Why do people play games? Why is it so hard to be honest?

February 2, 2011
A client passed on something out of the Emmanuel Book, a book channeled from spirit. It had a great metaphor about taking care of yourself.

January 24, 2011
I have been doing a lot of fascia work lately, and it is helping people, but I feel like I am really beating the crap out of them.

January 21, 2011
In working with my client yesterday, I said something that actually came across as profound. And it makes sense. There is realizing, understanding, and doing.

January 20, 2011
A client was in today for some energy work. We were planning on doing unwinding, meditation, and whatever else came to mind.

January 18, 2011
I got a Facebook message from one of my clients. She is the one whose insurance company has been paying for her treatment which stemmed from an auto accident a couple years ago.

January 17, 2011
Out of a magazine I was shown a brief on Notes From The Universe by Mike Dooley. I found this one most true ant intriguing.

January 16, 2011
Among all the unique things that happened yesterday, there was one that happened outside the scope of class where energy and focus were the keys.

January 15, 2011
I just came from a mediumship seminar with Eamonn Downey. He is a British medium who teaches at the Arthur Findly School in England. I took his seminar last year and was blown away by it.

January 14, 2011
I had the best quote from one of my clients on along time today.

January 10, 2011
Fascial work is starting to make sense to me. Or is that more sense? Does that mean that I might actually have some sense?

January 1, 2011
As I sit here on New Year’s Day, I wonder about the promise of the year to come. And right now, the year is full of promise, and more importantly... hope.
