Putting together a booth that feels good, is both easy and fun for me…. I can say that, now. I only need flowers with extra sparkles, friends, and my books. I clearly set my intentions, and fill the space with love.
Last week, I was reminded of how important intention is.
At The Alaska Women’s Show, I was offering free mini readings and guided meditations. Sitting in my rented space, I wondered if I should be there. It was a glorious fall day outside. No one was showing any interest in what I was offering.
The other booths were packed with clothing, stun guns and hunting information. You could also find makeup, personal trainers and hand bags that could carry concealed weapons. It was expected to have at least 7000 guests. Many would enjoy the wine garden.
A few weeks ago, on a whim I decided to market my book at this show. The organizer only had one table available, besides mine. I called my friend Rebecca, an acupuncturist. She took the last space. Rebecca invited a rolfer, Marnie, to share her space. The three of us were tucked away in hall by ourselves. Vending machines had been moved to make room for us.
My simple set up was on one side of our shared space. My healing friends had a table, chairs and a bed. Lots of attendees stopped by to see what they were offering. Some even experienced the free therapies. They were new concepts for most of the women.
Very few people reached out to me on the first day. I had several guests share how they don’t believe or appreciate intuitive work or meditation. Yow, I really was feeling out of place. It was going to be a very long weekend. Something had to change.
I clarified my intention. The people that I can best serve, will find me. This helped. I sold some books. I also did a few readings.
Occasionally a passer-by, made dismissive comments about the type of services I offer. I had several couples stop. One half wanted the reading, the other wanted to stay 20 feet away from me. This was a good exercise on not taking things too personally.
The next morning before the doors opened, my friends and I did a ceremony of clearing our collective space. We brought in oils, sage and prayers. We each set the intention of only attracting those we can best serve. We filled the space with love and light. A dear friend of mine contacted me, she had lit a candle for us. She was sending love into the Women’s Show.
I looked across our little shared space and witnessed the love and care shared by Becca and Marni. The people receiving acupuncture were sitting with their hearts and hands open, creating a space for love to land. I observed Marni practice with such gentleness it appeared her hands didn’t even move. I could see the healing energy radiating through her as she worked. I was witnessing a miracle.
It was wonderful! My friends were very busy. Customers steadily came to me. The flow was established. Women began commenting on how lovely and healing our area felt. We attracted beautiful women and men seeking wellness. I received something valuable. I needed to trust in the process. There was a reason why I had a table there. There was also a reason why I encouraged my friend to take the last spot available, and she shared her space.
We were given the opportunity to create a little vortex of healing in one of the most unlikely places.
I am so grateful for the people that found me. The life stories they shared were inspirational. The energy they shared with me was Divine. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you.
Looking from high above, use your mind to move the stars and planets aside. You peer thru the night sky into the bright light of the sun. Quickly moving past all the mountains, trees and animals your attention finds your physical self.
You experience all the thoughts, visions and beliefs your physical self holds. Moving in deeper you find the awareness that is always with you, impossible to diminish, impossible to fully comprehend.
You follow this awareness beyond yourself and recognize it is in everything you see. Your awareness is part of every child’s laughter, every blade of grass, every lamb’s cry. This awareness is the Universal Energy that changes and expands on all levels with every intimate moment of recognition.
You understand. Our thoughts synchronized.

With this channel I was shown that we can live identical lives, but experience things vastly different by the vibration we connect to. That means we may experience life 1000 times; but the difference is what we are connecting to. Where we put our awareness, is our reality. Each vibration, connects to a different reality.
Enjoy the best life has to offer. :-)
Last week I was seeking to connect to my life with greater intention. I also wanted to clean up the food I put in my body. After a little research I decided to focus on a three-day juice cleanse. A local market offered organic fresh pressed juice cleanses. It looked pretty easy. The bottles were labeled. The directions were included. All I had to do is drink the jewel colored juices.
I have eaten a plant based diet most of my life. With this being said, pretzels and tortilla chips are part of my diet. There is room for improvement.
I was excited to start! The idea of bright fruits and vegetables infusing my body with different colors from the sun, made me smile. Soon I would be loving my body and mind with beautiful hues of light. The juice reminded me of miracles held in bottles. This is the type of medicine I believe in.
The supply of juice was more than enough. Day one was easy. My intention was drink the juice and lots of water. Don’t eat food. That evening my husband and I were on the way to pick up our son from swim practice. At a stop sign, a homeless man held a sign up. In black ink on cardboard, HUNGRY was written. This sign, caused me to pause. I was purposely not eating food.
I was holding warm food, that I had prepared for our son to eat after practice. Here was a person next to me asking for any food he could have. I felt uncomfortable with this awareness.
I see homeless people every-day. The sign just added a little more awareness to our local and global issue. My thoughts stayed in that moment for a while.
Day two, I felt clear headed and energized. I was happy with my juicy lifestyle. My intention for the day was increase my fluids, keep drinking the juice and don’t eat food. I was keeping my intentions really easy to flow with. Ease, is a key part of living an intentional life style. Make your intentions fun, and reachable. Celebrate your successes. This keeps you moving in the direction of a life that offers unlimited awareness.
Later in the day, I pulled up to a stop light. There was a young man with bright blue eyes. He was eating someone’s left overs. His sign, was on the ground. I put my window down and asked if he wanted a Cliff Bar. Graciously he received another snack. When he stood, I could see how underweight he was. I watched him as he joyfully shared his meal with an older homeless man.
There are many ideas of how the homeless population should be cared for. I send prayers. I sometimes have food to offer. I’m not sure what the answer is. Perhaps some of the homeless have the intention that a stranger will share kindness with them. Maybe we unknowingly help them with their intentions.
The morning of day three came and went. My intentions stayed the same. I gave myself time to rest. I looked at this cleanse as an opportunity to slow down, let the nutrients and rest go where they are needed in my life and body.
On the evening of day three, I hopped on a plane to Seattle. The next morning, we moved our daughter into her dorm. We found prayer flags, crystals, twinkling lights and an essential oil diffuser for her room. We also purchased books, pens and paper. I encouraged her to write down her intentions for her first day and the first year of college.
Sometime in the past week, I noticed my son had his intentions written down on paper. He has posted then on his closet door. I also noticed my other daughter has her intention for the year posted on her wall. My heart was happy.
As important as it is to have intentions for long term; it is just as important to have intentions for short term. Every day can be lived with intention. We should be clear about what we are inviting in our lives. Intentions can be as simple as; I am going to enjoy good company today. With focus, our thoughts light up with magic and promise.
The juice cleanse was a success. I found myself connecting to, or being more aware of many things in my day to day life. It also reminded me of the importance of respecting others’ personal intentions. Our world is made up of energy and intentions flowing all around us... We each beautifully orchestrate what we personally need. We may dip in and out of each- other’s lives. Each time sharing a gift or a smile. That is enough. I know each person deserves the freedom and space to allow their intentions to grow.
Allowing yourself the gift to explore the world with-in you and around you, will create a moment that holds the wisdom, love and breath of oneness. Don’t be shy with your greetings, when you discover your power to open the door to Eternity. You have discovered long ago the ability to shift from one to another, from one life to another. You have the power to place your awareness in now.
Shifting energy. Hear us call you... Feel us take you to a place of love, nurturing and peace. Rest here. We help you discover your true nature; your impeccable beauty. None has ever shined so brilliantly. As we heal your bruises, and change your clothing, you are wrapped in love... Feel our absolute joy that you have discovered your place in the stars. As you gaze into the eyes of all you love... you heal. You forgive. You recognize the connection of one.
The joy is bubbling over... This energy can-not be contained. You see with new eyes what needs to be done. You are ready to begin again. This time with new awareness. You are ready to help others. And so the story of eternity continues... We are so close to a peaceful awareness... Feel our love. Hear our stories. In gratitude we prepare you and ourselves for this journey where we are eternally intertwined in the Divine.
Together we bring ourselves into a place of awareness, love and peace.

What would our world look like if we held signs asking for kindness and compassion?
Maybe we have in fact, created a world that is waiting for us to read the signs. My intention for today is to see a world thru compassionate eyes.
I have a new book out! Gateways 2 Peace by Polly Wirum. My book can be found on Kindle, Ibookstore , nook, Barnes and Noble, blio , Coresource , Follett, freading , Gardners , Google Play , kobo, Overdrive , Scribd , Wheelers, and Amazon.
With love and compassion:
I struggled in high school and dropped out at age 15. At the same time. I moved out of the home I was raised in. There was no direction in my life. My inner compass was being ignored. My outer world was filled with confusion and scarcity.
This brought me many opportunities to make horrible decisions. It also brought me the opportunity to experience Unconditional Love for the first time ever.
At age 18, all my options appeared to be exhausted. I had experience as a waitress. I was uneducated. I had no money; but I knew there was a better life waiting for me.
It was my mother that showed me Yosemite National Park was seeking summer help. Three weeks later I rode the Greyhound bus to Mariposa, California. I can’t remember how I made it into Yosemite.
My life changed overnight. Each day was filled with anticipation. My job was bussing tables. Clearing tables was not what I was living for, but it was good.
My time off was filled with hiking, rock climbing, laughing, and spending time with new friends. All of these opened up my mind to a life that included daring acts of following your dreams. It was this time in my life that I learned anything is possible. I learned life loved me unconditionally.
Pieces of my heart that were lost during my childhood, found their way home. My inner guidance was shining bright again. I learned how to live an uncomplicated life.
Looking back, I value this as an important part of who I am today. I truly loved my experience in Yosemite. The summer job extended into two years. I continued my quest of living a life I loved. I worked in bicycle shops. Rode my bike from California to Utah, looking for adventure. I worked for the Forest Service. I fought forest fires. I loved it all, except the ski resort. :-)
Eventually I made it to college; where I carried a little sliver of doubt. I compared myself to others. I found myself casting a shadow on one of the most magical times in my life. At times I regretted taking time off from pursuing money or my education. I forgot my experiences prepared me to be successful in what- ever I pursued.
I now have children at a telling time in their life. They are figuring out their passions and strengths. They are learning who they are.
I want them to experience a world too big to put off for later. I hope they believe in themselves and know that where ever their dreams take them, it is exactly where they belong.
This week our middle child will be taking off for a kayak trip with her new college. She won’t return home for months. So, a new chapter is opening in our life. It is crazy, to think how long it took me to treasure how my life has unfolded.
Last week a beautiful woman was sharing some of her concerns with me. She has lived a life with travel and adventure, some loss and much growth. She is a professional, and quite possibly has found true love for the first time. Yet, there is part of her questioning her beauty and wisdom. I could relate to the tiny piece of doubt.
As she bravely follows her heart, things will shift into place. Her concerns will be released on the wind, and blown away. At some point she will recognize, she never needed to worry. She has been an incredibly powerful, brilliant woman all along.
Life is not meant to be ordinary. Everyday can bring inspiration. Everyday can offer love. Everyday can bring back pieces of you, that were lost. Take risks for love. Take leaps of faith.
We are all converging on brilliant acts of courage and faith that bring us hand in hand to the most beautiful place, our collective self.
Come share your sleepy side with me.
Bring to me the part of you that is open and available to the very love that you hold with in...
Bring to me the part of you that lives free of shame, doubt and envy.
Recognize that we each have been guided to place where we will shine so brightly on our own..
It is this individual brightness that becomes the gift that we share...
It is time for you to rise, and shine your heart so brightly there can be no confusion as to why you are here…. Again…
This is the moment that sets us apart from all of eternity.
In this moment you finally see your - self as whole...
You recognize the brilliance...
You are not ashamed to shine your brightest... for this lights the way for us all.
As you shift thru the outer world into the inner world, a new awareness springs forth.
You are welcomed with the wisdom and love that has been with you... forever.
As you settle into this new understanding of life...
There is a peace ..
A place of gratitude...
A moment of eternal love... and so it is, and always has been... waiting to be remembered and called forth.

The word sleepy came to me in the beginning of this channel, I have used it before. It is the time our awareness is slipping from our outer world, into our inner world.
The most important part of this writing is recognizing when you are happy, you focus on the happiness. Your life becomes uncomplicated. Life loves you unconditionally.
Understand your very being is surrounded by love and protected by all that is... Rest in knowing you are never alone and always, only one thought from peace.
A little over a year ago I began working with a young woman that was seeking significant changes in her life. In one of our first sessions together my client, Dalia, wrote down her very defined goals. Through the year she quickly moved through her list. She was blessed with much success. Her greatest desire, a second child, is on the way.
As I write this we are moving into the full moon of August. Dalia has felt her body preparing to bring new life into our world. It is the perfect time for her new baby girl to bring joy and love into the lives of others. It is also the perfect time for this baby to meet her family and experience the human connection through love.
At one point in my life I worked as a registered nurse in labor and delivery. I discovered every birth to be a powerful experience. Each start of life is different and each one carries a powerful story. All deliveries bring new energy into our world.
A mother and new baby experienced a transition into an eternal relationship. Even if the baby is not raised by the biological parents, a relationship has been established.
Spending time in OB Triage, where prenatal ultra sounds are provided, was one of my favorite jobs. The ultra sounds allowed us to peek into the babies’ world while they grew. The fluid movements and the maternal connection through the umbilical cord always fascinated me. It seemed so magical; and truly it is.
Imagine the possibility that a child is born into this world more aware and connected then we allow ourselves to be. Eventually they connect with our world and their attention shifts to us and less to the wisdom of our Universe.
Humanity is adjusting to the idea of staying connected to creation while having the human experience.
Today as the new baby prepares to enter the world, changes will occur. Just imagine, at some point a soul decided to enter her physical body. Before the baby is even born, there is already purpose in her life. It is to experience love in every way imaginable.
As she moves into position to enter our world, she is surrounded by love and wisdom from her beautiful connection to the universe. Her Angels and guides are with her.
Once here, as she continues to grow, she will receive wisdom and love from a cord we can no longer see. She is experiencing love from all around. And so it is that we also are receiving love from a connection we are unable to see.
At 12:20 PM the stars aligned for a healthy baby girl to arrive into our world. I know she is protected and loved by her family. I also know she has a thread woven into the fabric of universal consciousness and love. She will continue to be watched over from those that have passed as well as those that have yet to arrive.
Sharing messages of love is one of the greatest joys bestowed on each of us. We each have our unique connection to the heart of others and our connection with the Universal Energy or God. Each of our souls come in with an understanding of what our position with in the Universe is... We all know where to shine. We all come in understanding where our light is needed. The connections made in this life were established as part of the cosmic design or eternal relationships that have always occurred in every moment... You have all along loved those in your life. When in doubt, know the connection remains.
Anything that is not of love falls away.
Even those that have shared the greatest lessons or challenges are part of your cosmic design. You choose them and they choose you. Together you shine the light of love. Even when a person is only briefly in your life... You are connected and always will be.
We can expound on the idea of whom is in our life and why. Some people, animals, experiences are literally to bring joy! Others come in to help you see a different perspective. This eventually leads us to the path of awareness, the path of peace.
It is as easy as shifting your gaze to remembering why you are here. This is the place where we are aware of our Universal cosmic connection. We are learning how to express joy and live fully in each and every moment. We cross this bridge of awareness together.
There are sounds and visions all around you, that can help you connect to peace. We leave you with the vision of courage to allow your mind to seek peace. It is there that all your answers are found and freedom reigns.

Conceiving a child or an idea is a miracle in action. This is the perfect time to give birth to our new intentions. I know that however people or animals arrive into our life, it is meant to be. Some are only with us briefly and some a life time. All relationships bring in the potential to learn about love!
If you trust in the process of feeling or hearing or even seeing the messages that are birthed at the Sector of heart, soul and God.. you are free.
