Recently I had visited Ukraine again with my partner. We flew in during the week September 11 to September 18th. It was an interesting trip. So now that we have delivered your Letter of Hope to our friends in Peace Corps and our friends in Vinnytsia, I feel I must express my feelings.

It was my first experience in traveling to a war-torn country, and I admit I was not sure what to expect. I enrolled with both the UK and US Embassies to let them know where we would be staying. Yet also I concentrated on sending love to all parties involved, and most especially sent healing energy to friends we had made. There were many sensation that arose. We continued to act as if all was well, and on the surface, all appeared to be. We experienced several closed places in public transportation, but nothing like those disruptions that Ukrainians in the eastern areas were experiencing.

So, people keep asking, “What was it like? How are people handing this?”

My answer upon reflection:

I sense Ukrainians are depressed, suffering with the pain of loss. This loss is like losing a sibling to death. Compare it to losing a favorite older brother or sister who dies unexpectedly. The loss involves so much more than what is revealed in the factoids covered in newspapers.

You, the surviving sibling ask, “Why is this happening? Why are unprovoked hostilities breaking out when we have done nothing to upset? We used to feel taken care of by Russia. Now, we are attacked and Russia is killing off its own family, its own brothers and sisters. What is this and please, we are fearful, how will it all end? We watch and see soldiers returning to the hospital seriously wounded, and this is during a cease-fire time. How can we go on? What does all of this mean? What will happen now to the rest of my family?”

Waves of grief overcome the Ukrainians as they contemplate and wonder. All those years of Russia watching out for the younger sibling, Ukraine, where has that family feeling gone to now?. Waves of grief and waves of understanding a new reality: yes, Ukraine is a country and yes, patriotism is needed at a time like this. No longer can we hide our heads and say, “Let them take care of it.” Ukrainians are now becoming responsible, no longer feeling the older brother will take charge and they can just sit and watch and feel entitled.

I continue to send love and thoughts of energetic healing to all, the Ukrainians as well as the Russians so this family of man sees how it is all connected. I ask that all appreciate their history, feel the joy it brings to be part of a family, yet also remain aware that change is what moves our whole system, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Those people/things/organizations that do not change and grow, they die off. Those people/ things/organizations willing to learn and work at improvements for all people, those people/things/organizations will grown and be healthy and prosper.

All love and laughter and health to you!


Because of tapping on a daily basis and becoming so much more aware of my own body and its joys and discomforts and feelings, I had a brilliant idea.

Experts say to “Create your day in advance.”  I had been doing that for many years.  Before attending and graduating from law school, I made sure that I created the room and the time and the intent for success.  I had also written a list of goals that probably were like a bucket list.

And after mulling over and reading Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project, I felt I was able to feel what is more ME. How am I to expereince and see life and relationships in a more fruitful and relaxed way, and also a way that is my unique way of seeing the world?  For example, I happen to LOVE taking notes.  Rubin mentions that as one of her fond things to do.  I also find it relaxing and even focusing and increasinng my creativity.  

What else?  I find my drawing and gardening so ME;  I return back from a workshop and that is all I feel like doing, sit and draw or paint or weed or plant……  Those two activities bring me back to being the unqie person I am meant to be…..and they give me back a happy spirit that emerges even after helping clients with their woes of life.

Yet it was an AHH, AHH moment when I realized:  No more To-Do list, but instead concentrate of my To-Feel List.  I plan to feel good and happy.  I intend now to have more time focused on the things that are unqiuely my spirit and loves.  So, call Regina, YES!  Grab the protractor and draw a new geometric design, YES!  Hug my partner, YES!  Call my children and rejoice in their voices, YES!

And after a week of concentrating more on my feelings, guess what?  I can tell my whole body is saying, “Good deal!  Way to go woman!  Enjoy your uniquess for all it offers!

Money Drama: Tapping Script for When You Recognize You NEED Drama about Money
I had an AH HA moment when traveling recently. I am a former United States Peace Corps Volunteer, 2010-2012 in Ukraine, and had visited USA and returned to Ukraine to visit my partner Mike and to teach tapping. Then, I traveled to India, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam. The AH HA knowledge came about because the fluctuations in the local currency exchange rates were not easy and not capable of being always calculated immediately in my head. The joy of traveling includes changing currency. You’re planning to not have too much “excess” cash left from one country and yet have enough to get over to airport. I had been tapping and using exercises from Carol Look’s Attracting Abundance,, and realized I still had blockages in this area of money. Tapping allowed me to clear this blockage.

So, I went shopping before I left Kathmandu and flew to Bangkok. The AH HA moment was this: How did I do this? And how had I so many times in my life I had “mysteriously” done the same? When I shopped, I realized I actually had an automatic sensor that made me shop until I got CLOSE TO BUT NOT OVER the money needed to get to the airport. So, the very act of shopping until almost all money exhausted brought many aspects of money to mind. I thought and tapped two rounds:

Even though I have this feeling I need to spend almost all of the money in my pockets, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

But wait, more came up: Why did I need to do this? Why was a similar feeling, like I had in university, of stress coming over me? How did I also mysteriously always have “just enough money” left to pay the necessary accounts……..BUT felt worried and stressed out because my calculations had cut it so very close? Thoughts of university fears came crashing into my head. Two more rounds of tapping:

Even though I was fearful of getting the university tuition paid on time, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Now, a long string of similar events came to my mind, and I did several tapping rounds on each:

Even though I was fearful of paying law school tuition on time, I deeply and completely accept myself and my feelings.

Even though I was fearful of paying monthly installments for the orthodontic work for my children, I deep and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I was fearful of how to pay off that mortgage, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I was fearful of getting the money together for……(please add in your event here)……, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Wait, there was more: Thoughts about how money was handled in my family house came into my head. Dad had full control of money. Mom had to ask for any money for anything. Money in my family brought up a feeling of fear and of drama, “Do you NEED it now?” When is it due; Is it due tomorrow?” “You should have asked sooner.” “Why do you need those pants?” “Why do you need those shorts?” “Why does school ask for that?” The feelings about money were that money was never easily acquired. There was a sense of fear and drama because when you needed something, you had waited until the last minute. Fear and uncertainty became normal about money. “Would I get this request?” “What could happen if money did not come through?” Money equated, in my mind, in addition to fear, a sense of uncertainty that was drama. Drama had become irrevocably linked with anything to do about money.

Had this drama become a necessity in all money matters? Or, possibly a rise in the cortisol level was demanded as explained below and by Dr. Dawson Church?

Even though I grew up with fear and drama in my life over money, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I am an adult with a need for fear and drama in my life about money, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even though I am addicted to feeling fear and drama whenever I have any dealings with money, I am an ok woman.
Now comes the great part: This realization was made: Do I have to carry that fear and drama around with me the rest of my life? Is it possible to be free of that fear and drama and move ahead confidently and securely? I can change this! I know how to tap. Now, I am not at the whims of past conditioning: So, tapping several rounds visualizing my future with money, I said:

Even though I used to feel anything involving money must involve lots of fear and drama, I now choose to be relaxed and contented about money.

Even though I needed to feel drama about money and its use, I plan to spend appropriately and to save appropriately, and I deeply and completely accept myself and my feelings.

More of an opening came then. Now, in adult hood, how did these fearful situations seem to arise? Who made these situations arrive? The law of attraction involves what I am focusing on and feeling. Could it be I am responsible for this fear and addiction to drama? Could it be I set up these situations so I could enjoy this fear and drama? That fear and drama about money matters are what I had become used to all of my life. That was a big mental leap here. I realized I was setting up the situations where I could be fearful about money and could have that sense of drama. More tapping, and yet now with a sense of lightness and freedom appearing:

Even though I set up the situations about money to have that fear and sense of drama I’ve come to expect, I deeply and completely accept myself.

Even though I used to set up fearful, dramatic experiences about money, I plan to see other options in experiencing the energy that is money.

Already a smile filled my face and my mind and my heart.

Follow up: I used this script with a friend to also check if clearing a money block this way made sense to them. We had a fruitful and energy-blockage clearing tapping session.

Happily, I see changes in so many of my behaviors about money. I feel a sense of peace and a lack of stress about money matters. I am excited to know that drama is no longer needed. I plan to continue growing using my own personal peace procedure as well as working along with other tapping practitioners.
