My dear friend, Phil Gutirrez-a Native American-said this prayer many times at the Reiki shares we held at his home. He taught me about respecting Mother Earth and all life she holds, among many other things. At our Reiki shares, the first thing after our hug, he would ‘smudge‘ us with sage, front and back as we turned around and held out our arms. Phil returned to Mother Earth on April 11, 2014 after battling cancer. I miss you Phil, and it is a great honor to have known you in this life! This prayer was also printed on his Memorial Service card. Aho (Hello or good-by)
“We are part of the earth and it is a part of us…for all things are connected.” Chief Seattle–from Phil’s Memorial.

Have you ever noticed people always say this year is going to be better, like no one ever has a good year? My past year(s) has been quite an adventure. My biggest issue has been money. I read Lynn Robinson’s book “Listen”, about intuition. Lynn is one of America’s leading experts on the topic of intuition. Voted “Best Psychic” by Boston Magazine, she’s been sought out internationally for her intuitive advice and counsel.
One thing I have learned from Lynn and other sources is to always be grateful, no matter how much or how little we have. Now that the holidays are over, let’s not forget to be grateful everyday, it’s just not for Thanksgiving. The thing I love most about the holidays is the giving and love! And the lights!
The Prosperity Prayer began circulating around the world via the Internet in 2001. Since then, many have reported they’ve found new work, received unexpected sources of money, and experienced a renewed faith as the result of making the “Prosperity Prayer” a part of their lives.
Dear God —
I surrender my financial affairs and concerns about money to your Divine care and love.
I ask that you remove my worries, anxieties and fears about money, and replace them with faith.
I know and trust that my debts will be paid and money will flow into my life.
I have only to look to nature to see proof of the abundance you provide.
I release all negative thoughts about money, and know that prosperity is my true state.
I commit to being grateful for all that I now have in my life.
I learn to manage my finances wisely, seeking help where needed.
And finally, I ask you to help me understand my purpose in life and to act on that purpose with courage and strength. I know that prosperity will come, in part, by doing work I love. Please help me use my skills and knowledge to be of service in the world.
Thank you, God.

Rachael Paddock is missed by many and will always hold a place in our hearts. She left this earth July 12, 2013 after a long battle with cancer. She had a lovely memorial-Celebration of Life-attended by lots of friends and family at her favorite park at 5pm, her favorite time of day. You would always see Rachael in purple scrubs and she would greet you with a warm loving smile. Rachael is a Holistic Health Practitioner.
My Lexi, golden retriever, recently became ill overnight, and I made the hard decision to put her to sleep. I asked Rachael to be with her and help her transition and help me get through my loss. Lexis went to sleep in her bed, favorite toy and healing stones from Rachael’s memorial. Lexis moved on with a smile on her face. Thank you, Rachael!
Sally Aderton, a dear friend to Rachael, spoke at her Celebration of Life. Sally refers to Rachael as her ‘Earth Angel’. You can read about Sally’s touching healing story here, click on Bio/History. Sally is a spiritual teacher, healer, intuitive, writer, California Real Estate agent, and my favorite…creative maverick. Sally sent an email to Lightworkers Galore, the group founded by Rachael. It is a weekly metaphysical group with many awesome guest speakers. Rachael always sent us cool inspiring and/or funny photos in her weekly emails. I thought Sally’s email was so touching, I asked her if I could share it with you.
Sally: I am attaching the cartoon that was in my dream in May of this year (2013). In the dream, Rachael had come to me to let me know she was leaving. In the dream Rachael and I were talking about the cartoon and laughing. I came out of the dream state crying. This cartoon will always be in my heart, Rachael’s final laugh with me.
Though I kept my comments very, very short at her Celebration of Life, I feel the need to share a bit more here. Some of you may know this story, but I want to tell it again. How I met Rachael Paddock:
When I moved to San Diego in 2005, I did so to run a real estate company called AMSI. In the 1980s, just in my 20s, I helped create this innovative relocation and corporate housing company in San Francisco. I left in 1990 to pursue my healing practice full time. Within a very short time my practice was international and for me, the ’90s were rock’n’roll! Though I had been on a consciousness path since 13, my own physical healing crisis created my need to return to what was familiar, family, and safe. I had then structure, that my inner earthquake and outer physical damages needed, to survive.
