After my talk, one of the audience members who approached me requested a reading list. I thought sharing it here would be a nice way to offer value to others.
My selections combine my interest in Nature, spirituality, and physics. I hope you find them useful. Reach out to me with any questions these generate for you or to collaborate or share your suggestions.
I’m currently reading Dune, and the film didn’t resonate with me years back when I distractedly watched it, so I find myself delighted by the theme of ecological restoration. Books that find their way to us are just one of the ways the Divine guides our lives, IMHO.
Here is the resource list:
To Honor the Earth by Dorothy MacClean and Kathleen Thormod Carr
The Secret Life of Plants Muscle Shoals (documentary film)
Not In His Image by John Lamb Lash
Quest for the Faradawn
Back to a Future for Mankind by Dr. Ibrahim Karim

It would seem the Plant Kingdom has plans for us. The goal of working together is to benefit both the Animal and Plant Kingdoms equally. Plant Spirit Medicine and BioGeometry deal with the intelligent architects behind plant forms. Each discipline approaches these Devic beings in a different way. But these complimentary modalities allow spiritual healers to create magic when they come together on projects.
This has been a wondrous past 2 weeks! Last Tuesday after months of iteration I resolved my first product line. I’ve been working in ceramic this season as a way to be creative while building other aspects of my business. After leaving a part-time job recently in a field unrelated to art, something just started clicking.
Healing Products Offered In Local Shop
I thought once I had my first product line solidly in production, I could move onto other things. This week I finally dove head first into developing systems for my business. I found my first buyer for the ceramic line I created the day after finalizing the design. This was encouraging. Yesterday I rode my bike all across Portland in the Springlike weather we had for a few days, collecting a check and dropping off business cards. It was nice to get out and smell the earth warming up, without having to wear a jacket.
Collaboration Is Guided by Spirit
Today the magic started to really happen. My entire journey of becoming an artist has been guided by Spirit. I’ll tell the whole story sometime. But being laid off from the part-time job I took about five months ago has been a bit discouraging. So this morning I awoke to words percolating through the theta wavelengths typical of the brain upon waking, “You have a bad attitude.”
After years of spiritual experience including my journey as an artist, I chuckled to myself. I could tell it was an important message. But as happens, I sort of forgot about it until later while riffling through my bookcase. I saw a title I hadn’t read yet, Attitude Is Everything, so I took it out and asked silently for guidance before opening it randomly. The message couldn’t have been more clear. Other spiritual healers probably have this experience a lot, too.
Synchronicity Offers Road Signs
The page I opened to said that when you lose a job sometimes it means that your business is ready to take off. My chuckle from earlier became a giggle, and I went downstairs. I had an email waiting for me from a shop owner who wanted to see my products today. I made an appointment, and the conversation we had was far more than I had expected it could be. Not only did she buy almost everything I brought in, but she put it all in her front window and wants to collaborate with me, including having me teach workshops in her space!
The alignment of her practice of Plant Spirit Medicine (an excellent book I highly recommend) and my successful application of BioGeometry to the creation of artwork feels incredibly rich. Two spiritual healers connecting allied visions to educate and empower people to work with to Nature is magic.
A friend recently asked me what I knew about synchronicity. I told her that in my experience it is a personal thing, and while books of theory have been written about the subject it seems to me a form of guidance that is unique for each person. I am so aware today that I am receiving spiritual guidance that I feel a depth of gratitude. I’ve really needed a boost lately – now I find myself wondering if things might just work out in according to the laws of magic. I’m grateful to be one of the spiritual healers working on the planet today, and to cross paths with another is significant.
