Lightworker – How do you know if you ARE one?


I’ve opened up a whole can of worms with this move.  One of the things that I am doing is reading old journals.  Ten-ish years ago, I consciously said “Bring it on!” to GUS – not having a CLUE what I was about to get myself into….(I highly recommend that if you have any of the following “symptoms” to NOT say bring it on like you know WTF is going to happen – because I assure you – you don’t!! – instead, you might rephrase it as – “I’m willing to do what it is you ask of me, but, with ease and grace!”)

One of my writings that I came across was written very early on on my spiritual journey…I was actually quite surprised that many of them are still pertinent on my path now….they are just deeper.

So….Here it is!!!




How do you know when you have “chosen” to become a Lightworker?


  1. You do things that “muggles” see as crazy or you do things you “shouldn’t” do.
  2. You leave relationships because even though they are “easy”, you don’t feel right about not being authentic to your true self.
  3. You start talking to trees, rocks, fairies, angels, etc. AND they “talk” back!
  4. There is a gut reaction to lies – Even if someone says one thing – your “gut” or intuition tells you another. TRUST YOUR INTUITION!
  5. You believe in the goodness of all, even thought you see their dark side.
  6. You are able to forgive (yourself and others) and are able to move on without staying in the past knowing that the other person also has their journey and you don’t feel a need to fix anymore….i.e. – if he/she would just change.  (Ongoing process for me!!!)
  7. You feel a need to simplify your life – spending more time in joy and peace rather than drama and depression. (Also, ongoing!)
  8. You feel a little crazy and yet you know you’ve never been more sane in your life and finally all of the puzzle pieces “fit”, even though you know the puzzle may take years to complete – and every time you find a piece  – you squeal with delight!!!
  9. You finally feel like you are BEing who you came here to BE and stop trying to “make” it happen – trusting that when you are authentic and from integrity in your work, GUS conspires to make it happen.
  10. FINALLY, you see our world as one of tolerance, peace, harmony, love and compassion.

Imagine it – and it is so.

I had no idea when I was writing this, that even today, it would be something that I needed to read.

If you are feeling ANY of these “symptoms” – I want you to know – YOU ARE NOT ALONE – Now, more than ever before, because of the state of the world – there are thousands “waking” up every day.   One of my “jobs” that my guides and angels have made more than abundantly clear – is to share very large parts of my journey.   I came from such a traditional background – married a dentist, raised 2.54 children, had the picket fence, conservative etc etc etc….until I couldn’t do it any more.   I KNEW there was something else out there.   My life fell apart – and I’m slowly putting the puzzle pieces together.  Not trying to “make” them fit, but instead, allowing them to fall into place.  Sometimes it is very slow going, but, sometimes I have those days where I find 20 pieces…


Every day is a new beginning.  A chance to follow your path.  I believe, now more than ever, we are here to change the world….hold sacred space…just by following our path.  Not one of us can exist without the other…

May We Walk Together As One


Comforting the Disturbed….

…..and disturbing the comfortable.

It’s not for the faint of heart.  It’s a special calling for a few artists whose soul and higher self begs for them to create art along with messages that are controversial.

And particularly challenging for those artists who are susceptible and worry about what others think, because of their wounding, and life’s lessons.  And, for those who were raised very “traditionally”, it presents a whole other plethora of issues.

All I can present is MY story – but I think that many other artists are in the boat with me.

Making pretty “acceptable” art is fun – and there is always a place for this…But, I KNOW that some of you are being called to bring in messages…and it’s scary.

I started traditionally – cows, sheep, roosters, pigs – fun and delightful, and near and dear to my soul.

And then, IT started.

It began with a message from a very well known artist – “Don’t let galleries pigeon-hole you.  Don’t paint for them.  It will stifle your creativity – the messages you are to bring through.”

Abstraction started – followed by “beings and angels” – and then – the messages became as important as the paintings.

I HAVE to paint these.

It has become even clearer to me after these past three months of intense introspection and lessons.  I know that many of us are going through the eye of the needle right now – with Spirit/God asking us if we are truly committed to the path that we chose.  It is taking HUGE amounts of courage, dedication, and shedding to get to where we are – and I applaud each an every one of you for NOT FOLLOWING THE M(ASSES)!!!

Creatives – all creatives – that are authentic to their paths, are the ones that are bringing in the new consciousness – the change that is needed.  We bring in questions – we bring in light – we bring in joy and love.

One of my latest paintings is a great example of listening to my knowing – being petrified to put it out there – and doing it anyway:

It’s called Faces in the Crowd – and here is the message:



A message about society.

About the way so many walk around like zombies.

Willing to follow the masses.

Not questioning, or thinking for themselves.

Becoming empty, because they fill themselves up with things, and busy themselves with jobs that they don’t care about….

Not finding time to play.

Look at the sky.




Just finding time to BE.

Instead they try to keep up with the Jones’…(no pun intended).

Losing themselves in the Crowd, rather than standing out, because they have been taught that standing out is a “bad” thing.

How will YOU stand out today?

May we walk together as one.

I KNOW that this painting “disturbed the comfortable”, because someone commented : “Me no like”.  Six months ago, I would have deleted my post.  I would have been totally embarrassed to have posted something that someone didn’t like.   Three months ago I would have deleted her comment.  Yesterday, I said, “Good.  It’s meant to disturb!”  And I meant it.
Does it scare the shit out of me to put these messages, these paintings out there???   Hell YES!!!!  Will I continue to do it?  Of course.
It’s time to wake up.  It’s time to be authentic.  It’s time to shine our collective light.  We have all become numb to stuff that we wouldn’t have put up with 10 years ago.  We are numbed and dumbed.
So – here is to all of you who feel the calling and are scared to death and do it anyway.
May we walk together as one.

Becoming Visible

I cried when I painted this.  Actually, that is a lie….I sobbed.   She may or may not be a “work of art”, but, her message to me, and to others is powerful. She appears to be taking shape.  Slowly.  Through the mist she is gradually appearing.  She is finding herself.  Becoming herself.  Allowing others to… Continue Reading
