My experience with breast cancer this year taught me that I
had far too little fun in my life for far too long. It was a hard lesson, but a
To rectify my lack of fun, I gravitated towards what I was
having fun doing in my present situation. And I was having fun exploring all
things spiritual. That’s what led me to start my YouTube channel. It’s the most
fun thing I’ve done in a very long time. (I type this with a smile on face because
it’s just that fun.)
Talking about the things that I like to talk about, is fun,
but it’s more about exploring various aspects of spirituality. I love learning
and exploring. It’s why I called the channel “Exploring Spirituality”.
I’m still very new to spirituality and I love discovering
new topics, researching them, and either looking at them with fresh eyes, or
looking at them through the lens of my own experience with spiritual awakening.
Which, honestly, is what I’d be doing with or without a YouTube channel.
By exploring it openly though, I hope to create a community
of people curious about spirituality who enjoy talking about it, sharing
information, and inspiring each other on the path. We will be spiritual

In a recent video, I explored intuition. I have been doing
tarot card pulls for myself to connect with my intuition for many months. It
took time, but the connection grew stronger, so I wanted to share my experience
and learn more.
Researching intuition, watching videos, reading articles,
and doing exercises to connect with it, opened up my intuition in a new way. It
was an unexpected and very welcome surprise.
In the video, I highlighted a technique for connecting with
intuition by asking it to tell me what a “yes” felt like. I did that exercise,
expecting nothing, and received a quick and clear answer. Now I know what my
intuition feels like when it is telling me, “Yes”. Then, I asked what a “no” felt like and
received that information as well. I was expanding my understanding of my own intuition.
With this channel, I am having fun exploring and learning
how to enrich my spirituality at the same time. If this is my purpose, I am all

After a challenging few days, I used all of my spiritual
practices to consciously and mindfully find my way through the challenges. Then
as the situation calmed, I began to receive synchronistic numbers and messages
from my spirit team. It was almost as if I had passed a test.
The number 77 had been popping up for days, maybe even
weeks, but it didn’t feel like a message or a synchronistic number. And then,
using my newfound technique, I asked my intuition if the 77’s that I had been
seeing was a message, a synchronistic number. The answer was an immediate and
(Even now, as I type, I can feel it. It’s a swell in my
heart and a breath in. The energy feels uplifting, like a smile…and yes, I’m
still smiling as I type.)
Then I researched what the message of 77 meant. The message
is one of “recognition and celebration by my spirit team for all of the work
that I’ve been doing” and that I was “being granted a gift”. Within a few minutes,
I received a flurry of synchronistic numbers and images about the “5 Clair Senses”. (This article at Oprah.com explains them.)
In the recent past, I’ve felt both claircognizance and
clairsentience subtly coming forward. I didn’t really think about them. I could
just sense peoples’ emotions or know the outcome of things. I thought that I
was developing greater empathy, but now I’m curious and ready to explore further.
Was the gift from my spirit team the awareness of intuitive
gifts? Can I develop claircognizance and clairsentience just as I developed my
intuition? Is that a thing?
I don’t have those answers yet, but I’m going to have fun
Cancer Journey Update.
My skin, muscles, and bones are still healing after the radiation
treatments. My shoulders which have been swollen and stiff since surgery and especially
so since radiation, are beginning to loosen after all the physical therapy and
daily work. My range of motion is expanding and I’m beginning to feel better,
Medical oncology treatments, hormone therapy, continue and I
have a follow up scheduled with my surgeon in the coming weeks. It feels like
all is well.
I am so grateful for healing, feeling better, and coming
through cancer without losing myself in the misery that it can bring. I credit
my spiritual practices for carrying me through.
The picture used today was taken by me last week in front of
the building that houses my physical therapist. It has amazing flowers, and the
morning light was fantastic.
Thank you for being here, dear reader. I am grateful for your
