I go from one extreme to another. On one end of the spectrum, I am working with various law-enforcement agencies for 42 years. Working on high crime along with taking an oath on things I can never share, I always look forward to switching gears. I still spend nights teaching meditation and developing gifts of the spirit as I have done for the past 45 years. I think of those two extremes as balancing each other.
We can’t reach those who are so enraged that they can commit devastation to themselves and to others if we judge them. We need to believe that their soul is also attempting to engage them and help establish a reconnection to their highest good. I don’t say that lightly. If I couldn’t do that, I wouldn’t have been able to see what the killers look like or sometimes know their names. Victims who are on the other side don’t always know who killed them or are still needing to heal and don’t go near the remembrance of that time.
Having been a crime victim more than once, I have been left with a lifelong disability It is the inspiration to make a difference wherever possible. It is why I learned that some music will help me process the trauma and certain essential oils can enhance and amplify the results for me to find peace. Passing on what l learned helps me feel it was all worthwhile. It became the door to law enforcement.
There was a time when I could not afford health insurance and barely could put food on the table for my children. It has helped me look for those ideas that can assist anyone, not only those who could afford them. Another blog, “A Gift of Music For Everyone” is a self-help tool. It was first created on audio tapes, then CDs, and sold to clients and others. I’ve been using a combination of music and essential oils for about 20 years, as the backdrop to my writing. I find that helping others find self-care tools can make a huge difference in someone’s life. Helping others helps ourselves.
