Holiday Boutique: Shamanic Rattle


Here is a wonderful healing tool that you won’t find anywhere else. Do you have someone on your list that is a healer? Maybe even a sound healer. Or maybe you want it for yourself. They can be used to clear and set a new energy in your space.

Each Rattle has a unique sound.

I was inspired to make healing rattles with bells on them 15 or 20 years ago. I learned later that ancient Celtic Shaman used bell rattles in their healing work. That was a lovely surprise because part of my heritage is Irish.

Each Rattle is created to capture the essence suggested by the driftwood which comes from the shores of Lake Superior. There are various totems, charms, beads, and bells that make each Rattle unique and bring specific energy to your healing work.

These Rattles are one of my biggest sellers on Etsy.

The commissioned ones sell for $111
I am creating 8 personalized Rattles for $99. When those 8 are sold they will go back to $111.

Hop over to Unleashing My Wild Creativity on Etsy to purchase a custom designed rattle or purchase one that is ready made.

Release and purification Ritual Doll


During a conversation with my current situation I learned that there were issues that needed to be released because they were holding me back.  They were actually caused by outside sources in the form of spells.

yes, you can have a conversation with a situation and get great insight.

Do you realize that when ever you think or speak ill of someone you actually case a spell. Some people do this consciously out of jealousy and anger and some do it without being aware. It is especially powerful if done during a time when someone is vulnerable due to health issues.

I made a list of things that I needed to release and decided to make a doll, also known as a poppet. A poppet is usually made of cloth or fabric but can also be made of clay, wax, wood or just about any other material. Making a doll is a helpful tool for healing. You will notice I also added Dissolving the parathyroid tumor.

I made mine based on what was coming to me intuitively. Because I wanted to release issue I made release my focus. I made her out of white felt which I cut and sewed together. Inside I put stuffing and salt. The idea behind the salt was when it got wet it would dissolve and purify.

The main metaphysical properties of salt are:

* Abundance, manifestation, and anchoring spiritual energies
* Connecting to the ocean, the Moon and its cycles, and grounding spiritual energies into the material plane
* Devotion, spiritual development, and an alchemical return to wholeness
* Hospitality, house warming, and domestic harmony
* Purification, spiritual protection, and releasing unwanted influences
* Insights on life, death, and spiritual rebirth
* Intuition, balancing the emotions, and altered states like dreaming
* Traditionally used for physical well being, vitality, and longevity

I wrote each thing I wanted to release on white fabric with water soluble markers. I placed them on the doll with safety pins.

As you can see she is outside in a bird bath in my garden. She is being charged up by the full moon tonight and tomorrow it is supposed to rain. When it rains all of the issues I put on her will dissolve and wash away.

I laid her on a bed of juniper, marshmallow herb and sage. I picked these intuitively and here is what I discovered:

Juniper is a purification plant par excellence. It can be used to cleanse ritual spaces or magical tools. It is strongly protective and dispels negative energies and entities. It is often used as incense in healing rites and to purify the sick room.

Marshmallow Magickal Uses: Protection; Stimulate Psychic Power; Clairvoyance; Contact Other Planes; Divination; Harmony; Peace; Tranquility Burn or place in a sachet to bring protection, calm an angry person, and aid psychic powers. Keep on the altar or burn on candles to attract good spirits. Attracts possitive influences.

Sage: Clearing out energy in ones surrounding place enables neutral energy, which naturally helps with intuition. The Native American tribes were known to use sage for multiple purposes such as healing, clearing space and ceremonies

My intention through this process is to clear and release the issues that are holding me back and break the spell.


And so she stayed in the yard for several days, through the dew at night and rain and she released…

And she was changed…



Trauma at the Back of the Heart


This process is moving quickly!  This is only the third set and I discovered something huge.

The day that I shared on Facebook about the tumor and the difficult surgery my friend Bob, from Austria sent me a message. One part in the message stuck with me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

“This tumor next to your aorta can very well be the result of your open heart surgery, where vital life powers had to escape and nest outside, as close as possible to your heart. 

It apparently wants to return where it belongs. The last thing it wants is to be removed. The life energy your tumor accommodates is a vital part of your physical self, that seeks to return where it belongs. “

Last night before I fell asleep I wrote several questions in my journal and the information above was on my mind.

when I woke up not only did I have the answer but also the image above.

I realized that it wasn’t from the open heart surgery but from something that happened 33 years ago and it was a vital part of my physical, emotional and spiritual self. I won’t go into the details but it was something that happened in a relationship that almost cost me my life.

After that I became ambivalent about having a relationship meaning a part of me what a relationship and a part of me couldn’t risk it. That part of me believed that if I fell in love I would die. I always wondered why it was so hard for me to find the right relationship and I finally gave up on the idea for many years.

That was the vital life power that went into the parathyroid. How perfect to be hidden behind my heart where it might never be found. It almost wasn’t found but for a wispy blue shadow that showed up on a scan, barely visible. None the less it was ready to be discovered. How perfect that that one rouge parathyroid behind my heart ended up to be the one with the tumor!!

And if it hadn’t been that gland and would have been in one of the glands that are on my thyroid I would have had the simple 17 minute outpatient surgery and never would have discovered this hidden gem.

to me this is a profound miracle and the tumor can now go away because I got the message!!

The series:


Anything is Possible


I am pretty blown away by the last few days. Tuesday I learned that I had to have a very complicated surgery. I told the surgeon I was going to make the tumor go away.

Wednesday I woke up excited to dissolve this tumor and shift the paradigm of at least 2 surgeons and maybe even a few other people. I started painting the process of it going away.

So many people got on my side to help me accomplish this mission adding energy to the process and three people sent me information that inspired me to look at this differently. Thank you everyone!

Last night before I went to sleep I wrote several questions in my journal that had been stuck in my mind about this tumor behind my heart.

This morning I woke up with the answer to the mystery! I believe it is key to the tumor going away. In my experience with physical issues over the years, the miracle always came once I got to the “Heart of the Matter “. The information that the physical issue wanted me to see. I saw it, integrated it and the issue resolved.

I am at that moment this morning.

Painting to follow.

So excited and confident ❤️

Art and the Shrinking Parathyroid Tumor continued…

I didn’t plan on doing a Back of the Heart tumor dissolving painting today but this dropped in this afternoon.

You can see the tumor in the left image but it is a little smaller.

I am really excited about the healing energy coming from this painting. It is talking to my soul and Inner Physician.

This is an early phase:


As you can see the energy in this stage is completely different. I was compelled to take a photo of this. I realize now that is because it has something to say to me that is different than the finished painting. I think what it is showing me is the importance of focusing on the throat chakra symbol in the upper left had corner and the throat chakra sound, shown by the music.

Here it is! Finished!

The blue and white image is more eitheric and the finished image more grounded and connected.

28FD97C0-BF03-487E-B6E1-5EF6F5AA6D4DThere is something very profound happening in this painting and in me!

When I was painting it I could see the look on the doctor’s face when he told me the tumor was gone. I am seeing it happening. And more importantly, I feel the excitement I will feel when he says “It’s Gone!” That is an important part of manifestation. Sending the intention and feeling the emotion that you feel when it happens. That is what pulls it to you.

The interesting thing about visionary art is that each step in the painting has an impact. This painting has different energy than the finished painting. So I get different information from each part of the process.


Throat Chakra symbol in upper left corner- The most common Sanskrit name for the Throat chakra is “Vishudda”, which means “pure” or “purification”.

This chakra is related to the element of sound. Through the throat, sound is propagated into the air and its vibration can be felt not just in our ears, but also in our whole body. It is an important instrument of communication and expression.

Musical Note: The note depicts the note for G. This sound vibrates the throat chakra.  You see that sound coming from the throat chakra symbol, going into the tumor making it smaller and transforming it into a blue butterfly.

Blue Butterfly:

In most cultures, the blue butterfly is a symbol of acceptance, honor, and great energy. A blue butterfly can also symbolize the passing of time, change, and meaningful purpose in life. Seeing a blue butterfly or holding it can have a calming effect on a person. In some part of the world, blue butterflies are rare, so it is considered extremely lucky to observe one. The blue butterfly is a symbol of Spirit speaking through transformation and change. In some cultures, spotting a blue butterfly is thought to bring sudden good luck. ** Blue butterflies are also considered wish-granters. Spotting a blue butterfly means that a wish one makes or made will come true. A blue colored butterfly is often thought to symbolize joy and happiness

These images are magical!

Journey to Dissolve Parathyroid Tumor begins…


Have you ever talked with a body part?  I know, it sounds crazy but we can tap into valuable information by just asking. That is where these two images came from.  I asked my parathyroid tumor what it wanted to share and the first thing I heard was “Bittersweet”.  Not surprising since I spent the last 2.5 years recovering from 3 heart attacks and open heart surgery and now I was faced with this!

Part of dissolving the tumor will be done with art. This is first of The back of Heart series of unknown length. On the left is where my parathyroid is currently, which is on the back of my aorta, and on the right what I want it to look like in the future, which is gone. I will do a series of these using my body as a guide until it is gone.

The title of the one on the left is bittersweet and that is in the painting coming from the heart.  The title of the right side image is Radiant.

The idea is to continue to check in with the tumor, ask where it is at, how big it is, and what it needs.  That will be painted as an image on the left side of the paper.  The right side is always about where I want to end up through this journey.  That image can change over time as well but is always the positive aspect I am aiming for.

After I completed the painting I researched the symbol of bittersweet, which is a plant.  Aside from the obvious that this is a bittersweet issue I am dealing with, here is what I found for the symbolism of bittersweet:

“Bittersweet is protection from evil spells.  It is also used in healing rituals. As a part of a cleansing or a protective ritual, it is believed that it sends out more power to the Universe, keeping negativity and other bad things away from you.”

Perfect vehicle for healing!


Healing using Art and Art Therapy


This is a new series following my journey to dissolve a Parathyroid tumor using art and alternative medicine.

This was last Tuesday…Not good…

Back from the surgeon. I saw the scan they did yesterday. The parathyroid tumor is behind the aorta. This rarely happens!

The surgery is going to be so complicated that the surgeon needs a couple of months to think about the best way to do it. He has never seen one there before. He wants to consult with other surgeons and he said he would think about it when he is doing other surgeries to get some ideas. So sometime in December.

I am also still healing from open heart surgery that hasn’t been a year yet. The surgeon said that both of the possible entry points have scar tissue from the open heart surgery and it will start to break up once I am healed so it will be easier to open me up.

Which gives me two months to disappear it.

The recovery will be as hard as recovery from open heart surgery and if they open me up in the front there is a 50% chance my vocal cord could get damaged and I would have a hoarse voice forever. I know, it could be sexy….also risk to the aorta.

So I told the surgeon I was going to make it go away. I told him I had done it before with my gallbladder and I could do it again. He didn’t roll his eyes like you would think. He didn’t even blink an eye but say he was behind me to do this. He encouraged me to do that. He said he supported me in doing that. And he was all over testing my blood again to see if it was still there.

What? Doctors always roll their eyes when I talk about doing magic. By magic, I mean making things go away that are not suppose to go away.  I have done it before.

I am determined to do it again!

I want to be clear that I have no resistance to having surgery if that is necessary. Letting go completely to resistance was a huge lesson learned during my heart journey. I know how important that is to returning to wellness.

With that said I also have no resistance to the tumor going away on its own. Of the two options that is my preference, of course. I also love the idea of being a way shower about the possibilities we have for healing.

Two of the things I will be doing art working with art and sound/frequency/vibrations. Art is one of the most powerful healing tools I know. It is a way of seeing current and future ideas. I am a trained art therapist so I know that it can impact all levels of healing and that is why it is my go-to modality.

I am going to start a new series of paintings called the Back of the Heart. I had been planning this for a few days when my friend Rev Marshall Wright gave me a new idea this morning that I will be working on the paintings.

I am also a trained sound therapist and know how powerful that is for healing so will be doing that too.

I am combining these things with a new quantum healing tool I just discovered that will enhance and support anything else I am doing and any prayers and healing anyone sends me.

I plan to learn from this issue, just as I have from my heart. There is something here for me to learn.

In the end, if I have to have surgery I won’t see it as a failure. The tumor either goes away before surgery or It needs help to go away with surgery.

Whatever happens is the path.

My Psyche’s Journey


I have posted this painting before but I am learning more about it…

As many of you know, my artwork is prophetic. The message may be for someone else but often times it’s for me. Many times there are layers of meaning, as people who I have done soul portraits find out.

I woke up thinking about this painting. When I painted it In Spain in Nov 2015, I thought it was Psyche floating over the River Styx at the end of a journey, which it was at the time, but it turns out to be the beginning of a journey too.

Psyche and Eros is an epic love story. In the story Psyche is given four tasks that she must complete in order to love and marry Eros. The tasks are life threatening or impossible and it is Venus’ hope that one of them will kill her, which they didn’t because she found a way to get through each of them. She came out stronger and more determined with each task.

Not long after painting this painting I started the epic journey of my heart. My four tasks were three heart attacks and open heart surgery. All of them life threatening tasks. Each one of them difficult yet transformed me and made me stronger.  Like Psyche I didn’t know the next task was coming and I wasn’t sure I could complete each task

Just like Psyche my impossible journey has opened my heart to love again. For many years I was in conflict about love. A big part of me wanted a partner and another part of me was committed to staying single until hell froze over. I had done 30 years worth of personal work and couldn’t understand why I wasn’t in a relationship.  There was good reason that I chose to protect my heart in that way and in the end I had to have my heart opened surgically.

After I had the first heart attack the inner conflict became very clear to me. There was no way I was going to attract anyone with that program running. My aura was sending that message out to every man who came near me. It took Four difficult, life threatening tasks to clear it out.

Now I am ready to love again.
