Self Inquiry: The Way to Self-Realization

What is self inquiry?It is a process of questioning that can help you to uncover the hidden assumptions and concepts that are running your life. Of course we want to live in the new paradigm, a world of caring, loving people who act from the perspective that we are all One. However, often we are not aware that some of the concepts we hold onto actually keep us hostage in the old paradigm!

Let's take an example of a popular belief-- "Life is unfair". When we assume this statement is true, we are putting ourselves in a victim role. What's more, 'victims' and 'new paradigm' are mutually exclusive groups. Inquiry is a way to find out what is really true!

So just ask yourself, "Is this true? Is life unfair?" and maybe you will reel off five reasons why you believe it's unfair. But can you absolutely know that life is unfair? Think about it... if you look at the big picture, how could you possibly know what is fair? Could it be that what appears to be unfair to me could be fair to someone else? The next question is, "What happens when you believe life is unfair?" How do you treat people... how do you react? If you are honest with yourself, you will find that when you believe this statement, you experience nothing but stress and suffering. What if you didn't believe this? For a moment, suspend your belief and just see who you would be if you didn't believe it.

When people meditate, they close their eyes and sit without thoughts. Inquiry is a wonderful form of meditation. Sit and close your eyes and ask yourself who you would be without the thought that life is unfair. You could sit in this for a long time...

Who would you BE without your story?
I love this question. It is also the title for the Byron Katie's popular book! Check it out on

There Is No "Way" to Peace... Peace is the Way!

It's an exciting time to be on the planet! Did you know that right now we have the most amazing tools available to "wake up" from the illusion of suffering? This blog is all about sharing those tools with you so you can experience the new paradigm: heaven on earth!

I use several tools in my healing practice: Reiki, Crystal Healing, Deeksha (Oneness Energy Transfer), and the Work of Byron Katie. Each one of these modalities comes under the heading of "Vibrational Healing". This simply means that
healing happens as a result of moving into a higher level of consciousness. When you believe you are struggling with a problem, you are in a certain level of consciousness. By applying vibrational tools, you can move up to a higher level of consciousness where that "problem" is no longer seen in the same way. It can be perceived as a gift... or maybe even a door to a new opportunity! The really amazing thing is that the problem seemed to disappear, when in fact, it just went back to the nothingness out of which it was created!

Today on the planet, it feels like everything is speeded up... everyone is in a hurry to get "there". My teacher Byron Katie says, "If you want to go faster, then slow down!" She shares one of the most effective ways of getting to the core of our most painful issues. Her process is called The Work and can be applied to any problem! As a graduate of The School for the Work, and an ordained minister in the Alliance of Divine Love, I am confident that I can assist anyone who is searching for relief. The only requirement is that they be willing to open their mind!

Counselling sessions are offered Monday thru Saturday and are approximately 1 to 1 & 1/2 hours long. A single session is $75.- and a package of 6 sessions is $425. You may call for an appointment 512-448-2374 or you may email me at
