Happyness Master Mind 7 Week Sojourn Starts June 20 4 or 7pm

A Master Mind is a group of people coming together for a common purpose to support and expand the group consciousness created together. Together we will also listen to and grow with each other towards new possibilities. This group is tailored for those available during the day this summer so that together we can shift easily towards increased happyness with others who are just like us. Together we will also definite the best time of day to continue. Feel free to invite others that you think would benefit from a Master Mind over the next seven weeks, because it will go quickly and setting our intention now is the beginning of the process.

The Happyness includes deep inner wellness, exploring, releasing andreceiving through seven different pathways. If you are ready to drop personal judgement and the inner critic, then this is for you. If you are ready to stop feeling as if you want to run away and join the circus, then this is for you! If you are ready to shift easily into a comfortable lifestyle where you feel more peaceful, grounded, and happy in your own skin, then this is for you. Make time for yourself and to come together via any device to focus on your own inner work. No one else can do this for you. Also knowing, that I am available for private sessions one on one when you are ready.

This will be a small group class and each week you are invited to make a love donation of $15 to join. Payments accepted via PayPal, Facebook or Venmo. If you feel called, you can make a larger donation at any time. This is an opportunity to work together with me as your guide through the Seven Pathways to Wellness and Happyness as a Master Mind Group.

Plus, I will be offering a later time option for those that have FT jobs on the same day each week. So if you can’t make the 4pm start time, there will also be a 7pm group #2 you can join.

There will be agreements made to start including: Time will be limited for each person to share so that we stay in agreement with our timing and focus for the class. You can also decide if your information is private or not. But together we will hold each others intentions throughout the week so that when we return the following week, we will continue up the curvilinear process towards manifesting our deepest desires.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have ANY questions @ 713-232-9796 or via text message. This first class we will come together to define both a group intention and our individual intentions, confirm our schedule and agreements to move forward. This is going to be GREAT fun! I am excited and thrilled to offer this weekly class. We will start with a short heart filled meditation before venturing down a new road. Have a big glass of water with you and a journal or peace of paper and a pen handy. Be ready for surprises!

Funny Fairy Story

Since I was invited to share my story on a radio talk show about other dimensions and how I fell into sharing fair journeys, I was excited!  No one had ever asked me about how I got there and it was fun to be recognized.  The show was on a Sunday at 5pm and on that same weekend, I was teaching Sunday morning during the Rose Heart Retreat in Austin.  The retreat is an annual weekend full of conscious activities like Ecstatic Dance, Circling, Sound Healing, you name it.  I loved it!  And this was my second year to be there so I offered to teach a segment before dance on Sunday morning.  Plus, as the timing turned out, it was Easter.

That weekend I had started out camping on Thursday when I arrived early before I met so many friends who had offered their guest room for me to crash.  Even though I love camping, I would always rather spend time with friends in community than alone.  So, I accepted and spent the night with a friend who is an amazing cook and caterer on Saturday night.

The weekend flew by and I was just as elated as I was exhausted, but I knew I had to leave around 2pm to get home in time to be settled and online for the radio interview at 5pm.  I planned to be calm and in the silence of my office so that I could focus on the conversation. What happened was not in the plans.

Before I left Austin, my host offered some Indian food before I got on the road.  I should have said No, but I adore Indian food.  Quickly, we sat down as she reheated the curry.  I can hear her now, when she commented that something was just not right with the coconut milk.  She thought maybe she had opened a can that was a bit funky. This information flew in one ear and out the other as I visited with the other guests seated at the kitchen table getting ready to dig in.

Fast forward and now I am driving home and noticing all sorts of traffic as I continue.  It’s frustrating.  I am constantly looking at my watch, checking my speed, planning ahead if I will need gas, and talking to google about when I will arrive to my destination.  Google says 5:19pm.

Stressed out, because that is not what I intended, I speed up and then try again talking to Google trying to change the trajectory to no avail.

Around 4:40pm the host, my new acquaintance calls me to see if I’m ready to go and I finally tell him that it’s been a SNAFU sort of day, and with traffic and my stomach feeling upset, I am not sure if I am going to make it home like I had planned.  He giggles to himself and tried to hide it, but I heard it and knew that the universe was just playing with me as usual when I didn’t listen to my intuition and left promptly at 2pm as planned.

He says, “No problem, I will be on the call with the program and when you get home, just call me back and we’ll start your interview then.”  Thinking to myself, Great, I can now leave this random place I had found behind a gas station trying to find a place that is not so noisy so that I could talk on the phone clearly for the radio interview.  Mind you, the air conditioning in my aging Kia was not cooling and with two dogs in the car, I was battling the sound and heat by rolling down the windows, to which we could all get some air, but then we couldn’t hear a thing!  So when he called, I had to roll up the windows to answer and hear him audibly, while this triggered the dogs to go into major panting mode.  It was a mess.

So when he says, No Problem, get on home and get settled and call me back.  I put the girls back in the car, and sped out back to 290 since I was about 15 miles away but it was almost 5pm.  I was determined to make it home quickly and as I got on the highway, and I am checking my blind spot to make sure I could get on safely because of all the construction and crazy traffic, I turn to accelerate and get on the highway when one of my pillows that had been bouncing around the back seat because of all the wind just blows directly in front of me and for a moment I can’t see where I am going.  Instinctively and with a bit of rage, my left hand grabs it and snaps it out the window with one swift move.  It happened so fast.  I couldn’t believe what had just happened.  And it was the perfect side sleeper pillow with a cover… As I looked out the rear view window I could see it disappear under the cars and then it made me laugh. WTF.  This just goes along with my drive.  But I will get there, I told the world, don’t you worry!

I’m about 10 miles from my house, driving pretty fast when my stomach starts sending shooting pains throughout my gut.  The pain had started once I turned onto 290 in Hempstead but I’d ignored the little rumblings.  But now, the pain was imminent.  Something was happening and it was not happy.  Again, I had to rationalize stopping to use the bathroom before getting home and as I stared out the front window keeping an eye out for traffic, I thought, which bathroom would I use? To the left was a nice gas station but that would add minutes to my drive getting there and then getting back on the road, nope can’t do it.  I must stay on course.  OK then, I thought to myself, there is a nasty old Exxon to my right, that I know I’ve used because it’s on the cycling route when I used to ride years ago.  I remember that place.  Immediately, I pull over, get out and go directly to the bathroom while I am pissed off and thinking, let’s see just how nasty this bathroom can be, just show me!

I think it’s about 5pm now and I am hustling so quickly, I hit the bathroom within seconds.  I locate the larger stall and go in. Quickly I survey the seat, clean it off and line it with paper before I am urged to quickly sit down and let it all out.  It was one of those religious experiences with my eyes rolling up in my head, my mouth is open and the relief just keeps coming and I can’t believe this is happening in this place, OMG, look at the air filter on the ceiling, do you think they’ve changed it in the last ten years? NO!

Then, I hear the bathroom door open and two young girls talking as they come in.  At this point, I quickly flushed the toilet and as I look down, nothing has moved in the toilet.  The little water came and went, so I flushed again.  This time getting up to look at the funky design of this toilet that doesn’t actually get water to the entire bowl.  And the smell has already penetrated the entire stall to my horror. So, I flush a third time and personally will the water to come into the bowl and take the excrement away like it was designed to do.  That’s when I hear the young girl say, “You can’t flush THAT smell.”

As they are standing outside my stall, for some reason, and I am cleaned up and ready to exit when I just stop and look at the little silver sliding lock in complete acceptance of what is happening. The world slowed down for a mili second for me as I caught my thoughts and for a moment I always never wanted to leave the stall of embarrassment, but then I knew I had to go for my interview.  I unlocked the stall and within a flash I came out and saw what looked like two high school aged young girls huddling together outside my door looking at each other in dismay, as I turned to the right and headed straight to the sink to wash my hands saying, I am SO sorry! OMG That Coconut milk did NOT like me!

I washed my hands trying to avoid making eye contact, grabbed a towel to dry my hands and left the bathroom with these two girls still huddled together in horror staring and talking to each other as I wafted out.

I quickly walk/ran out of the store and as soon as I exited through the door, I saw a car with young parents obviously waiting for their kids to use the restroom. I quickly turned to the left and got into my car and left.  Knowing that those two girls would come out telling their version of the story and then their parents would say, “We saw her come out!”

I’m not done.

I get in the car feeling so empty and nauseous and relieved that I stopped for myself or I would not have made it home in time for that explosion. I am thinking to myself, Note to self: you ARE averse to funky coconut milk.  This has happened before and you didn’t need to eat when you should have been on the road at that time.

Then, I get a call and there is no one on the other end until I hear the coordinator say, She’s on hold and we are going live soon! Completely in over drive by now, all systems are code red, I roll up the windows so that I can hear what is happening and put on my nice voice when I really want to blow a gasket.

Speeding to my exit, I am hot, we are tired and wind blown, down a pillow and having dropped off ten pounds of coconut crap, I come flying in the house with the dogs and my hair is crazy from the wind, I am sweaty and already talking on the phone for my interview hoping that all the back ground noise is not noticeable.  When my dad looks up to say Hello and I just put my hand up with an angry face for no one to talk to me as I raced to my side of the house.

In my room, I have finally made it and I am excited when the radio host asks me about my own journey to host experiences for people that include coming closer to their own intuition.  I am now by my own sink talking about how fairy’s decide if you are worthy of communicating or not, so it’s best to set an intention to be clear and honest with yourself so that you can use all your senses to be available if they choose to come to you.  The conversation keeps drawing me in as the information just starts coming out and there are stories and ideas and experiences that no one has ever asked me about and I know exactly what to say and how to respond.  It was thrilling.  All this to get into the zone.

Until my stomach signaled another visit to the toilet.  Without skipping a beat during the interview, I drop my yoga pants and go to the restroom and strategically use mute on my phone to do my business when I am not answering a question.  I seem to have become a pro at this skill from working throughout my days and responding to friends and clients no matter what I am doing at the time.  And this makes me laugh.

From being so sweaty and nasty from the drive, I decide not to pull up my tights because the call is almost over and I need to take a full on shower.  So, imagine me now finishing up the call from the sink with my pants down and sharing beautiful stories of how we can pierce the veil different ways including by waking up at 4:30am to pray or meditate and this is called the Amrit Veil.

Then, the hosts are thanking me for such an interesting and exciting call and I am happy that I was invited and thrilled to be there to respond yet again, obviously no matter what the circumstances.

When I hung up my phone I immediately let out a huge sigh of releif that it’s over and it feels fantastic! I am exhausted as I look at myself in the mirror but I still smile at myself.  You’ve GOT this Sandy!

Now GO and shower your Nasty self!

The Whole Hand

As with most people, everyone has ups and downs in life.  The lesson is to remember that these experiences are just like the weather and if you stay focused and centered, the unpleasant experiences will soon pass.  And as an intuitive person with numerous gifts and super powers, even I have bad days! For me, since I am sensitive to the energetic powers of the universe, I can tell you when these conscious shifts are happening because all I have to do is look at my life.  During the last big shift here are five things that happened to me that when you count on one hand give you the whole hand and that’s when I know to stop everything I’m doing and get centered, take care of myself and focus within until the storm passes.  For instance, here are five major experiences that seemed to go on in tandem over a span of two weeks while I cried,  “Uncle” until I got the lesson and now I can teach them:

  1. Turning on the Recycling Service – One day, seemingly out of nowhere, I was having breakfast outside on the patio, like I normally do when I got a verbal kick in the pants from my dad.  What I couldn’t understand is where all the rage came from that originated about the fact that I needed to take out the bin for recycling.  The only problem was, we didn’t have that service anymore and I was in the process of having it turned on.  This led me to my own internal journey of self-discovery before returning to fill out the form and turning on the recycling service.  I’m sorry.  Please Forgive Me.  Thank you.  I love you.
  2. Allowing Zoe to Cross the Rainbow Bridge – Within this time, I took Zoe and Giselle to local dog parks and both times was shamed for having Zoe with me when she was visibly a ghost of herself and outwardly looked like a sad zombie. This was another biggie for me.  It took a nice older lady who shared her own story with me and of letting her dog go that finally sunk in.  I finally saw her from a different perspective as having done her lovely job with me for more than fourteen years and she was just waiting for me to put on my big girl pants and call the vet to make a date.  To this day, I’ve never been able to cry at the drop of a hat until now.  Zoe was so tired and so ready to go that she gave me multiple signs that I was doing the right thing and when it happened, she was happyer.  Plus, she has already come to see me on multiple occasions.  She is everywhere now.  And I think of her every single day thanking her for being my companion during my transition from married to single.  I think that was the biggest reason why I couldn’t see a life without her.  It was because I was afraid of being without her and alone.  It did take some time to learn how to sleep without her but I am adjusting and feeling stronger every day.  Thank you Zoe!  I’m sorry.  Please Forgive Me.  Thank you.  I love you.
  3. Ending the Illusion of a Partner – And during this same period of time, while everything seemed like it was crashing down around me, I turned to a friend who has also been a partner over the past ten years.  He always seems to be there for me but only when I really needed it.  He must be an angel because you’d never know he existed in between the calls and visits.  But during this time, he shared other examples of how vindictive he could be with his clients and then how passive aggressive he was being with another woman when I could clearly see that he’d been filling a void for me that he couldn’t fill for anyone including himself.  He had been part of my own fairy tale illusion and when I finally got enough courage to state the obvious, I could actually feel that he had been enjoying my energy when I needed to cut it off once and for all.  And boy did I get so much energy back!  I had no idea I had been carrying around that illusion while he was a willing participant for his own distorted needs.  He was also a remnant from my past patterns that are now recycled and empowered solely for me!  I’m sorry.  Please Forgive Me.  Thank you.  I love you.
  4. Owning my Power – During those two weeks, I stayed with a girlfriend who had also been filling a need for me to get away over the years.  Her house is darling, she has a really cool job and her life is totally fun.  I love her.  Yet, when I was there and concerned about staying out of her way while I was going through my own metamorphosis, I seemed to grow myself right out of her space. I was experimenting with my own Akashic clearing gifts starting with myself, which I always do before sharing with my friends and clients, and it was powerful.  So powerful that I was able to get myself out of my own way, and boy am I stubborn so that the transformations could complete its process on me. Before I left to house sit for another friend and client, I offered the same deep transformative experience for her and once I was able to tap into her Akashic records I just started sharing all the messages that had been waiting for her to receive.  Then, before I left and she was now out of town, we had both shifted so much energy that her guest room and the office was ready to transform itself when I moved a massive shelf away from some windows to the opposite wall.  Let’s just say, everything continued to just fall into place!  Even when she returned from her trip she kept sending images of her new space as she kept moving stuff around and it looked beautiful, open, spacious and brand new!  We were both brand new.  I’m sorry.  Please Forgive Me.  Thank you.  I love you.
  5. Acknowledging My Feminine Ancestors – This has also been an underlying theme during the big shift that I experienced earlier this year.  And here it is.  Acknowledging all the women in my lineage, all the children that didn’t get to say their names or live a life, all the power they came to this world with and then never got to use!  One of my friends and gurus helped me notice this within minutes of ushering Zoe across the rainbow bridge.  And of course, since I adopted her when I was finally willing to accept the fact that I was not going to have a big family like I had imagined.  And for fourteen years she was with me the entire way.  Yet there were so many others that had voices that were never heard and I was able to tap into their energy, hear their cries and give them the love they needed by acknowledging them one by one.  Another powerful ceremony just happened one day with a friend at the Springs that spurred so much recognition of the signs that were all around me.  I was finally able to connect the dots and they all made perfect sense.  Oh, yeah.  Now I get it.  Right on.  I’m sorry.  Please Forgive Me.  Thank you.  I love you.

Each experience revealed a different sort of process and I am here to share the tools needed to expedite the process.  Working with so many friends, clients, family members, guests and even strangers allows our union to transmute the energy safely, quickly and with me as your guide.  It’s been a blessing and I love how the path continues to unfold.  When you are ready to focus on your own gifts and would love a guide and find yourself reading these posts or thinking about what it would be like, then let me know.  Think of me as your Spiritual Advocate since I expertly guide you towards a more harmonious lifestyle with fun and laughter exposing you to a whole new world.
