What Beauty Will Come from Your Pain?

“Behind every beautiful thing there’s some kind of pain.” Bob Dylan She was young-ish, early 30s, and studying to become a psychologist. She told me her choice was between working with me to relieve the constant discomfort of her scoliosis or spending over $3,000 to purchase a back brace that she would wear every day. Knowing that she was on two antidepressants as well as oxycontin, a.k.a. hillbilly heroin, I chose to tread carefully. Just by the very fact that she was on medication to treat her mind as well as her physical pain, I...

Pray, Meditate, Allow Then Write

Having suffered an 18-year hiatus between my first and second books, I know first hand just how painful it can be if you are a creative person who happens to be stuck. When you are a writer, you study what turns you on and turns you off. Just like knowing that if you eat too much sugar at night you could have trouble sleeping, or if you drink too much coffee anytime of day you wind yourself up, you have insight about yourself and can make informed choices. Knowing this information, you can then assiduously avoid that which shuts down the...

The Healing Power of Self Compassion

The Healing Power of Self Compassion

“I think modern medicine has become like a prophet offering a life free of pain. It is nonsense. The only thing I know that truly heals people is unconditional love.” Elisabeth Kubler-Ross One of the blocks that may hold you back from releasing painful patterns in your life is your relationship with yourself. The teeny weeny habit of finding constant fault with yourself – often disguised as a never ending quest for self improvement – gets in the way of your true healing. The most healing frequency of all is the...

How to Get Out of Hell Without Really Trying

“I am the way into the city of woe, I am the way into eternal pain, I am the way to go among the lost. Justice caused my high architect to move, Divine omnipotence created me, The highest wisdom, and the primal love. Before me there were no created things But those that last forever—as do I. Abandon all hope you who enter here.” Dante Alighieri, Inferno Every once in awhile you make a seriously wrong turn in your life and end up in considerable pain. Because you are in fact divinely loved, in the depths of your misery you will want to be...

5 Questions to Ask Yourself If You Really Want to Be Done with Your Pain

“The truth will set you free. But not until it is finished with you.” David Foster Wallace Recently a woman came to see me about her back pain. She had been diagnosed with spondlyosthesis, a very nasty painful condition of the spine where usually at least one vertebra is shoved forward out of place. She was facing surgery and didn’t really want to go under the knife. She had been to the chiropractor but hadn’t experienced permanent relief and wanted to find natural ways to get rid of her pain. I taught her six exercises and in the...

4 Lessons I Learned from My Mother About Aging Well

My mother, Jane Espy, and I just went to New York City to celebrate her 80th birthday. My stepfather, age 86, stayed home in Savannah while my sister-in-law, Bee Espy, came to stay with him so that my mother and I could make our trip without worrying about him. Like most mothers and daughters, when we were younger, my mother and I had our moments. But in recent years my appreciation for who she is as a person and  her kindness to me has brought us closer together. When we got to La Guardia Airport and were waiting for our luggage, my mother...

God Has Filled My Heart with Dog Babies

This is a very personal article about the phenomenon of childlessness, the pain of domestic violence, the blessing of dog babies and my work as a medical intuitive healer. This morning I woke up and I saw inside my heart two cocker spaniels: my brown and white dog Belle who passed away last July and my black and white Dixie who I dropped off last night at a friend’s house. They were playing intently together with a yellow tennis ball and watching them inside my heart made me feel complete with happiness. These are my two little girls...

Medical Intuitive Reading of a 19-Year-Old Who Suffered Sudden Death

Most of the clients who come to me for medical intuitive readings are in fact alive and seeking insight, solutions and healing for their personal health. In February of this year, I was contacted by the grandmother of a young man who suffered sudden death at age 19. An autopsy proved inconclusive. No doctor could explain why he died. The family was left bereft, not only missing their dear one but also seeking answers why a young man seemingly in the prime of his life could pass away with no warning. Months later the grandmother has related to...

Your Emotional Anatomy: How Emotions Affect Your Muscles

“The wound is the place where light enters you.” Rumi What’s The Emotion? When you get a pain the neck, is it really a problem with your cervical vertebrae, your anterior neck flexors, your posterior neck extensors or have you simply gotten stuck in your emotions? As a medical intuitive healer, one of the first things I do is empower you to understand how your emotions have been affecting your physical body. You and I will set a goal – for example, to get rid of that nagging pain in your neck – and the very...
