Butterfly Effects of Change


A few months ago I connected with a woman through LinkedIn, Lu Pierro, and she had a vision to share!

She was promoting her 2nd annual Worldwide Holistic Day. The purpose of the event is to introduce people to the options offered through alternative complementary therapies. Ms. Pierro has asked practitioners of all modalities to plan an event where they can offer their respective therapies to their local communities at no charge on the 2nd of October on the anniversary of Gandhi’s birthday. The theme, of course, is to “Be the Change”. I became totally and completely smitten with the idea.

I immediately began to plan my own event and have passed the word on. I loved everything about Lu’s vision. I loved that it was meant to encompass  every modality and that it was a volunteer offering. I loved that it celebrated Gandhi’s birthday and that its primary invitation to the public was to be the change! But most of all I loved the simple fact that Lu understood the powerful effects of small intentional change. Of course this too was Gandhi’s life’s vision! I live my life by this code and it was a captivating idea to be part of something as huge as a global event just doing my own little thing! I couldn’t wait to share it!

So on October 2nd from 1 – 4pm I will be in Hamilton with my associates Lynda Henriksen, Mary Giuffre and Paul Clark doing our thing. I am going to be holding a seminar and open discussion on “Being the Change”, complete with focused guided meditations and a healing circle. We will close with networking and a hands on healing share by and for whom ever wants to participate. Our space holds 150 participants and I hope it’s packed! But if it’s not…it will still be perfect!

The Butterfly Effect

Very simply said…the butterfly effect says that small tiny changes can eventually cause huge effects, in  fact the theory goes that the gentle flap of a butterflies wings could be the cause of a major wind current like a hurricane down the road. In Chaos Theory the butterfly effect is defined as “the sensitive dependence on initial conditions, where a small change at one place in a non-linear system can result in large differences to a later state”.

When we bring this phenomenon to our front mind we add the factor of intention. When we multiply that intention by hundreds of people intending the same thing we increase our effect exponentially.

Intending Outcomes

We are not randomly, arbitrarily going to sit there in Hamilton in a group and mindlessly flap our metaphoric wings trying to create a wind storm. No we are going to intentionally establish a common heightened vibration, a symbiotic intention for ourselves first and then Be it.

As Gandhi put it to us..Be the change we want to see in the world. So on Sunday we will practice Being the Change! We will learn to embrace ourselves as the masters of change. We will come to understand our place in the Universe as co-creative beings with power. We will endeavor to feel with our whole bodies what it means to be healthy, vibrant and brave. We will experience the vast illumination of bio-electric magnetic energy that we truly are and feel what it feels like to be empowered in a self-generating high frequency vibration. And after that…well after that there is nothing left to do…after that we just are!

The greatest problem in the world today is that we have forgotten the truth of what we are. We are sacred, radiant beings of light, perfectly capable of being healthy, abundantly prosperous and loving beings. We’ve lost sight of our innate Divinity. When we learn to embrace our essential Godliness we instantly increase our vibration toward a more perfect frequency. The phenomenon that takes over then is called entrainment. Every molecule that is of a lower frequency will instantly strive to raise its vibration to match with the healthiest vibration available. Everyone that shares DNA will quickly establish a resonance with the increased frequencies – no matter how far away! All we have to do is be pure and strong in our in own individual intention and it will be felt the world over! A noble plan indeed! But in the world of quantum physics this is how it works.

Being the Change!

So on October 2nd I need your help! I need you to join me in Hamilton in body or in spirit and in the hours between 1 and 4 set your attention on being the very best you can be! Clear your mind of difficulties and challenges, and turn your focus on imagining your world as being stress free, joyful, healthy, love-filled and peaceful. For 3 hours on Sunday simply allow yourself to feel what it would feel like to live the life of your dreams. Deny the voices that tell you life isn’t so or that it can’t be had, or to stop being foolish. For 3 hours intend a tsunami of positive loving energy flooding through the hearts and minds of all those you come in contact with, your relatives near and far, and in all the places you have had the good fortune to visit.

For 3 small hours on Sunday October 2nd catch the wave of change toward the life of your dreams and join thousands of others as we co-create a vision and in truth a new possibility for a positive, loving, healthy, and peaceful world. For 3 small hours on Sunday join us in daring to BEING THE CHANGE!

Grail Ladies – The Loveliest in the Land


From June 28th to July 1st I had the extreme pleasure of attending Grail Lady Faire, an annual event presented by Grail Springs  in Bancroft ON. The Faire is organized to feature a variety of keynote speakers and workshop leaders offering grounded, high energy, and empowering presentations for women only! My friend, the incredible Mary Giuffre of FengSHe.org and I were asked to give a talk on Infinite Abundance and we were happy and proud to stand among such a fine lineup of presenters.  The talks were inspiring and informative as well as empowering and transformative for all the participants. But that was only one aspect of Grail Lady Faire!

Emerging Grace & Beauty

From comments I heard over the course of the week it was obvious that women walked away from the seminars altered. They felt motivated to start expressing their own truths more than ever before in all their relationships personal or business. They felt joyfully connected to their natural power as women and as the week went on it became very evident that they were embracing their femininity in more direct ways. Hair and summer gowns and dresses flowed easily, faces beamed with smiles and full bellied laughter and tensions released into the grounds and rippled over the waters of Grail Springs. It was living testament to the inspired vision of owner and our gracious hostess, Madeleine Marentette.

When women gather amazing things can happen…there is nothing like it when women get ‘it’! In the safety of the company of their own kind they reveal themselves; their worries and fears, their hopes and dreams and their glory. They begin to radiate with an intense fire that rises up from deep in their creative bellies. Their hands heat up and easily reach out to support one another in revelation and they hug (and cry) – a lot!  Their capacity for compassion is astounding, and in the space of a few days they renew themselves fully and completely. As they become restored in their immense power they begin to envision a new world that is about peace, love and passion!

Sharing The Bounty

As their heart ‘cups’ fill they dream of ways to share their renewed bounty with friends, family and humanity. It doesn’t take much to inspire women to love. When they are given the space and permission – like we were on the Sacred grounds of Grail Springs – to tap deeply into the wellspring of nurturing creative power always being offered by our beloved Mother Earth, women respond instantly. When we are held in the Great Mother’s arms we feel within our own hearts the resonant beat deep in the earth’s body and come to remember that we are never disconnected or abandoned by her. She is always in communion with us, we need only open our hearts and touch her with consciousness to receive the blessing of her love.

The Grail is intent on treading lightly upon the earth and their luxurious spa business policies revolve around earth sustainability and natural products. When the earth is honoured as deeply as She is at Grail Springs she responds abundantly. The grounds abound with enormous trees and perennial gardens, offering many spaces and opportunities for group and private ritual, ceremony and gathering. Throughout the week women gathered outdoors to exercise, dance, pray and discover themselves through a myriad of ways. By the process of sharing their stories, networking their businesses, and healing their wounded souls they came to restore their innate beauty and force of being! It was exciting to watch and it was my privilege and honour to read cards for some of these women as they quested into their personal potential and purpose. The heartfelt sincerity and soulful authenticity that emerged was spectacular and awe-inspiring.

Transformative Power that Heals

I am still sitting here, at home now, witnessing the continuing expansion in my own energy field and I reflect on the energy patterns I observed during the week. In the beginning, on occasion, I encountered energies of anger, worry and pain that can often cloud an otherwise beautiful aura, I saw the outside worldly patterns of masculine authority being worn protectively as a shield over a softly glowing field, and I felt the energetic probes of doubting, fearful minds reaching out suspiciously looking for safety and trust. But as the week progressed  I watched these same energies of fear, judgement and trepidation melt away and be replaced with an unparalleled harmonious radiance that emanated far out into the heavens. It is this kind of energy transformation that will heal the world. When and only when we each learn to respect and honour the sacred within one another as a pure reflection of Divine Intention will we be fully empowered to create the healing that is needed on a global scale at this time. Women have the ability to lead this movement forward into a new world if they can remember their brave spirits, their boundless energy, their unlimited resourcefulness and their beautiful, beautiful heart filled compassion.

From a Quantum perspective consider this: when introduced to high vibrating healthy vital molecules, slow densely vibrating molecules will always strive to vibrate at the higher frequency to experience health and vitality. It is our most natural state of being to be open, radiant, healthy and strong. As we consciously try to raise our vibration, activate our truest most authentic selves, and believe in our selves as light filled beings we create and manifest the opportunity to heal ourselves, each other, humanity and our earth simply through the magical process of synergistic attunement. And believe me this, the energy at Grail Spring is nothing short of magical and already in sacred alignment for our highest good al we need to do is to step into and receive the abundant power that arises freely when we allow ourselves to be all that we can be!

So hats off to you Grail Ladies! – You all became the loveliest in the land! Now all we have to do is stay that way!! Blessings to you all for all that you shared and a very grateful thank you to Madeleine, Dawna and all the staff of Grail Springs for the wonderful opportunity you provided us all with! A special thank you to Jordayn for your gifted hands and the unbelievably luxurious Seaweed Scrub! It was a glorious experience that will stick with me for a long, long time!
