In those times of aloneness, you are not alone. As you walk your human journey you are Grace and Beauty even at those times you do not see this. Each moment brings you the promise of a greater understanding. To find this understanding that seems so out of reach is to silence the mind, close your eyes, breath deeply, and begin your journey inward with out judgment or fear. You Children of the Universe are Magnificent Beyond the Scope of Human Understanding……The Ancients

While working with people over the years I have come to realize many people believe I have lived a charmed life. This is not the case. I am writing this to give you a glimpse into my life. It isn’t so different from what other people have experienced. And the same as others, I have asked the question, if I am creating this life why did I choose the experiences I did?

My early life was far from charmed.  I experienced emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. The adults in my life had alcohol and drug addictions. Violence at times was a daily occurrence. There was little stability and many times, I didn’t know where I was going to be living next. I grew up being the caretaker of those who were supposed to be taking care of me.

The first thirty years of my life reflected what I had learned as a child. I had abandonment and trust issues. I judged myself as harshly as those around me did. I had no voice and one of the only ways I knew how to express was through anger. I slowly and steadily slid into the life I grew up in.

At times I didn’t just fall to my knees, I fell to the point my elbows scraped the ground. I had no idea how to reach out to others. How could I? I had been taught not to trust, not to believe and that I did not deserve.

Those teachings were reflected in my outer reality until I chose to say enough, come to understand the only way this was to change was if I chose to look at myself. There was a part of me that has always understood that I could put the blame for my life being what it was on others but, that was not true and would not help me. Somehow, I knew, that if I wanted change in my life, I had to own it. If I didn’t like what I was choosing to live it was up to me to change it.

Of course, I kept attracting the same types of situations. I began to question them, to look at them differently and allow them to take me into my journey self-awareness. I no longer accepted them as what my life had to be. That is when my life moved forward.

I often read posts about people being strong, fighting against a believed injustice and that they will survive. I used to feel that way. But now, I know what this life has taught me. The experiences in my life taught me compassion, tolerance and understanding. My strength is in my ability to give and receive love. My strength is in not surviving this life but, living it.

This is a time of empowerment. This is a time in which to be compassionate, tolerant, understanding and filled with love. Let it begin with you and move out from you. Have a beautiful day.....Cherry



We have heard your repeated question, "How do I move past this human-ness?  This small ego self?"

Children of the Universe, we remind you, in the infinite wisdom of all that you are, you chose these beautiful selves. There is no mistake. There is no smallness. There is only the experiencing from the reality of who you are in this present moment.

We ask you to no longer dismiss the chosen life as inconsequential, as an imperfection in which you must endure until the day you depart the chosen identity.

In this perfect moment Darling Ones we ask that you allow the light of the Essence of your Being-ness to flow unhindered into the beauty of this life you are walking.

Look around you Darling Ones. The flower that blooms in the spring does not look at the sky and wish it were not in the form it is. The snake that slithers through the tall grasses, stopping to curl up on a rock to bask in the warmth of the sun, is not waiting impatiently to finish the life it has chosen. The insects flutter about, the birds soar through the air, the animals walk the earth. In the waters, life follows the currents with none lamenting about the imperfections of the forms that bring about their experiences.

As with you, the knowledge lives within each as to why the experience was desired, then created into form.

Dear Children of Earth, we ask that you no longer push away the miracle of life you are. Instead, come to understand the wonder of all that you are. Allow the light of your Divine Essence to enter the Being-ness of you.

With our hearts that sing your praises, Dear Ones, we send you the message to cherish this Earthly walk……….The Ancients.


For three days this week I joined a group of over 500 women for the Women’s Rocking Business Conference in Santa Cruz California.  A beautiful women name Sage Lavine had a vision to bring women together with the message they are loved, supported and can create amazing businesses.   Sage, I thank you for this.

One of the many things that I was reminded of is a message that Spirit has been sending to me for many years now and that is, we are not here to do things alone.  This had been a challenge for me much of my life.  Throughout my early years I received the same messages many other people have received and that is, it was not safe to reach out to others and ask for help.  The message that I was not worthy of the love and support of others.  That I could not depend on others and that I would be ridiculed if I did ask someone to be there for me.

Even though I left much of that belief system many years ago as I began to love who I am and to know I, like everyone else is worthy, I kept falling back into the pattern not reaching out to others to share what I was doing or ask for support.  Okay, maybe I would reach out a little but, that is all I would do.

Through the three days of the conference I received the message of the importance of having a tribe.  This message was reinforced repeatedly.  I saw how having a tribe would not only help me but, how by being a part of tribe, I could assist others too.  I came back from the conference and began reaching out too many of the women I had just met and to the women I know to bring together a tribe.  This tribe is not only my support and family, it is support and family for the other members of the tribe.    What a powerful force of life this tribe creates.  An energy that surpasses what I can do alone.

If you are standing out on the sidelines feeling as if you must do things alone.  That your dreams are not worthy or that you are not worthy, I want to tell you now, that is not true.  You are a Divine Being who has come here with a purpose.  You are beautiful.  You are powerful.  You are Amazing.  As you realize this, reach out to others so that you may receive and give love and support.  Bring your tribe together.  This is a gift not only for you, it is also a gift for others. IMG_2680

You have The Now...The Present...Live in this Moment. What has been, has been. It is was an experience. What is to come, is to come. Let this moment be what creates your next moment. Those sound like challenging words. We are taught to look at what we have experienced and judge the experience, ourselves and all that participated in the experience.  If you are reading this, it may be time to let go of that training and….

  • Step to this moment
  • Allow the emotion you feel now
  • If you look backwards at what was, do so with the intent of learning from the experience without any judgment
  • Breath back into this moment
  • Hold love and for yourself
  • Breath into this moment
  • Feel yourself free of the emotion
  • Be happy with you as you are
  • Step forward to the next moment….you do not know exactly what you will find there but, you will know that you have created it free of old judgments and pain.

DLS_4743webLike so many other people I spent a very large part of my life doing my best to be what other people thought I should be.  I was not living life, I was performing in life.  This left me empty, unhappy, and always feeling as if I was not good enough or that I had failed someone.

For me, it was a long daunting journey to finally come to understand that I was o.k. being me.  Yes, I finally understood that there was no way that I could ever please anyone else.  That was being their projection, not who I was nor who I am.  Your journey does not have to be so long nor so daunting.  You are taking the steps now with the support of many.    IMG_2733       IMG_2794

The journey to claiming yourself is a worthwhile journey.  The journey to be you, is a journey that takes you to the destination you deserve and that is loving yourself.  Once you love who you are as you are, you will find that yes, some people fall away while others stay by your side.  You will also attract in new people who love you as you are.  Your life will change.  You will find more positive experiences come your way.  You will also find that you now understand that you deserve these positive experiences.

It is good to understand that not everyone who falls away will stay gone, some come back.  When this happens, you have a stronger relationship than you had before.  The reason it is stronger is, you are centered in you.  You are showing your true self, not a reflection of what you believe they wanted you to be.

There are two weeks until the Hawaiian Experience Retreat.  I realize that some people may not view this as enough time to prepare.  Yet, if you are meant to be there, the preparation is already in place.  It is a matter of trusting.

This retreat is about self-love, self-claiming, and self-empowerment.  This is Vickie and my second retreat on the Big Island of Hawaii.  The first one was pure magic.   Each day was an experience of growth, love, and enjoyment.  You may visit to read more about the retreat.

We have two spaces left so, if you have entertained the idea of coming along with us, this is the time to do it!  Contact Vickie Pruitt at 541.990.7301 or email her at   Ask about the how to receive the price for the early bird sign up.  It is time for you to fully embrace and love you.

Being Present and Creating New

It is interesting that we attract new people into our lives with the intention of having a new experience.  Yet, when the new people enter, in record time we place them into the role someone else has played in our life.  What is even more interesting is, we are not aware of doing this because we have convinced ourselves our reactions are justified due to outdated alarms going off in our heads telling us we must protect ourselves.

This saying has been replaying in my mind lately, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results", I can easily see that we cannot create anything new by projecting onto another our thoughts, feelings and reactions that came from the result of a different person or a different time in our lives. 

Part of the spiritual walk is to be willing to look at ourselves with as much honesty as possible so, that we may let go of what no longer serves us.  With each step we take in life we have come to a place of a new understanding if we are willing to see this.  That means looking at ourselves and others with patience, tolerance, and compassion.   It’s also important to remember with self-care and self-love, we become more accepting and loving towards ourselves and others.

 A few indications the old patterns are in control of your life and not you:

  • Starting any thought or sentence with, “This always happens” or “You always do” Nothing always happens the same and no one always does the same thing.This type of thought is a defense mechanism that shuts you off and shuts the other person out.Nothing new can come into your life by holding this thought.

When you feel yourself going there or having gone there, take a break and think for a moment about the situation.  Remind yourself this is a new person who has a completely different life experience than you have.   Ask yourself where the need to shut down and block the other person is coming from.   As you do this, you may find that another person or event from earlier comes into your mind that has nothing to do with the person you are with now.  Make a mental note to be present with the person you are with, do not project onto them and later go back to that earlier time so, that you may heal the emotional wound.

  • The conversation has moved forward in a direction that adds understanding to the issue, and you agree with the direction of the conversation yet, you reach back to the earlier issue that was cleared up, not letting go of it like a dog shaking the life out of an old chew toy.

This may be the part of you that felt powerless at an earlier time in your life that still needs to be recognized as being right so, that you feel as if you have won.  There is not necessarily winning in a discussion with a person.  There is understanding and coming to comprehension of how the other person views the situation.  There is no losing for either person when this is done.  There is only coming to more closeness as each person’s view it acknowledged which allows for compromise. 

  • You do not listen to the words the other person is saying or discount everything they say. The ego is in control at this point not the heart. Take a breath and move out of the ego and into the heart.
  •  You start acting childish. This happens because the adult self is not there.The issues of the child self-have not been resolved. 

There are many more indicators yet, it is best to start with only a few so, you don’t become overwhelmed.

A short checklist that assist you in seeing your patterns:

  • Is the current situation the main upset or did the situation trigger an earlier memory of an upsetting time?
  • Are you being present and listening to the person speaking to you?
  • Are you only willing to argue or make the other person wrong?
  • Are you reacting without allowing understanding?
  • Are you belittling, berating, or otherwise dishonoring the other person?
  • Do you feel the need to put up defensive barriers?
  • Are you placing yourself in the role of the victim?
  • Are you wanting to win without regard to the person or the actual issue?

These are only a few questions that allow you to check in on your motives. 

A short list to assist in creating a new positive outcome:

  • Remind yourself by having a disagreement neither person is wrong, you are only seeing things from a different viewpoint.
  • Can you grow emotionally or spiritually by hearing the other persons point of view?
  • Compromise with each party allows a solution where everyone benefits.
  • Allowing each person to speak while the other agrees to listen without preconceived ideas or projections.
  • What positive outcome do you want to occur from this?
  • How can you help that happen?
  • Are you in your heart or in your ego?
  • What does this person add to your life?
  • What are their positive attributes?
  • Revisit your childhood issues with love

Again, this is only a short list of the many questions you can ask yourself to create a better outcome.  You are the creator of your life.   Do you want to create the same old, same old or something new and better?  Where you apply your energy will attract in the end results. 

Many blessings.......Cherry

As I read the headlines, I said a little prayer and asked my ‘Group’ to help me understand what was happening and to assist us in this time of unrest.  As soon as I said this prayer the word ‘juxtaposition” was whispered through my mind not once but, three times.

As I wondered why this word is the one that came in after my prayer, I decided to go to the dictionary and look up its meaning.  Here is the definition:

  1. an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast.
  2. the state of being close together or side by side.

As I read the definition visions began moving through my mind.  These images were of the world leaders arguing among themselves, threatening missiles, damage, and war.  I did not see just the leaders, I saw the masses agreeing to putting up walls to keep people out, dividing and killing over religious beliefs, claiming supremacy due to race and on and on it went in my mind until I felt a bit sick to my stomach.

All were acting like small children over what they believed they own or want to own.  The tit for tat in their behavior.  Small children throwing temper tantrums.  All without concern for the affects their actions will have on Earth or the life that inhabits it.

My mind instantly refocused to the most current events that many people are facing, Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Jose. In detail scenes of evacuations, rescues and the people who returned to their homes to find there was no home to return to.  The wild fires blazed through my mind.  Again, mass evacuations, people in a state of fear for the animals and homes they had to leave behind.

The difference between these events is the reaction and actions of people.  One stayed at the basest of the human ego, pushing for destruction.  The other brought union.  There was no division due race, religion, politics, or social status, there was only person after person coming together to help those in need.  People leaving the comfort of their homes as they raced to these sites, rolled up their sleeves and dug through the rubble with the intention of giving someone hope that life as they knew it could be restored.  No sleep, sharing the little food and water that was there with others along with holding those that grieved their losses.  Eyes that felt compassion, voices that consoled, once again hearts that had opened.

Our daily lives are filled with these same contrasts.  They may seem smaller in comparison and much more personal yet, they are adding to the whole.  In other words, we are creating our realities.  Possibly now is the time to choose to love ourselves along with all life completely.   As we do this, we can change the outer reality to one of love, peace, and harmony.

A suggestion for adding love, harmony, and beauty into the world is: First remember your world starts with you and moves outward.  Start your day with a meditation in which you focus first on self-love and acceptance.  As you feel this, send love and acceptance out into the world.  Visualize peace within yourself, until you feel calm and comfortable in your own skin.  Let your mind wander out seeing the world at large.  As you do this, visualize peace for mankind.  

 It is important to remember as you envision, feel, and believe you add energy into mass consciousness.  If you see separation for yourself for reasons of race, religion, political group, or nation, you add that belief of separation into the physical reality.  See the world united in love.  This may not seem like much but, it is in truth immense and touches the whole. 



I am/we are a perfect expression of perfect LOVE here and now…..Richard Bach

I was in a mall in Yakima Washington when I bought my first copy of ‘Illusions:  The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah”.  As I came out of the bookstore I looked for a bench to sit on.  No bench in sight, I perched myself on the masonry that surrounded the flowers in front of a store, leaned my back against the wall and began losing myself in the mastery of this small book.

Illusions touched a chord of awareness that lived inside of me.  After reading Illusions I began looking at life in a different way.  Questioning what was accepted as truth and asked if it really was true?   Then I would get entrenched in what I considered life, becoming the sleep walker in the dream once again as I forgot to question what I was accepting.

When I felt small and helpless in the illusion of my life, this book with the blue feather on its front cover would re-appear for me to read once more.  Each time I read this book I would move out of the complacency I was in and back into being a questioner not quite realizing that I was actively creating my life.  That knowledge would come at a later time.  Over the years, I have had and given away many copies of this very insightful book.

Here recently a dear friend of mine asked me if I had read Illusions II?  There was an Illusions II?  Well no! I had not read it so, I ordered it immediately.   I am now in the process of reading another Richard Bach writing that brings not only my brain to life, my heart re-awakens too.  A sweet reminder for me to question what I have lived and why I have chosen to live it.  To wonder why I have drawn to me certain lessons, their relevance and purpose of these lessons in my life.   Yet, most importantly the writings remind me to question what I have believed, which allows me the freedom to discard or move past the experiences that I have outgrown.

The teachers for our life lessons come in many forms.  Sometimes a simple writing, sometimes it may be a person or an experience that wakes us from our slumber so, that we may question and create our dreams.  If we never question we stay sleep walkers in life.  We keep the knowledge of being the Creators and choosers of our life path buried inside.  Without this knowledge we feel as if we have no choice but to be carried away in the current we have been told is life.

This is a powerful time of awakening.  As you attract to you those things that make you look inside don’t shut them down in fear.  Instead allow yourself to question.  Why did I choose this?  How has it assisted me?  Is it still assisting me?  What fear keeps me from letting this go?  What would I prefer in my life?  How do I create it?  Who do I ask for help?  Why do I not allow myself to ask for this help?   Remember, this is an amazing journey of your design not something that is just happening to you.

Thank you so much Andrea for this wonderful testimonial of the Hawaiian Experience Retreat.  It was a joy and an honor to co-host this amazing event.....Cherry

I took part in Cherry and Vickie’s Hawaii Experience retreat on the Big Island in late January/early February 2017, and wow, what an experience it was!  Actually it was a whole series of totally amazing experiences.

Vickie provided us with a wealth of information about our astrological charts, which she prepared for each participant.  She gave us the tools to understand the various aspects of our charts and answered a lot of questions I’d had about astrology.  Her seminar on essential oils was extremely informative, and I really enjoyed learning the TRE relaxation techniques, which I am continuing to use.

Cherry’s channeled messages always amaze and inspire me.  I can’t easily describe Cherry’s gift of channeling “The Ancients,” but I can describe the benefits I’ve received from them:  greater levels of understanding; deeper insights into my own actions/reactions and those of others; relief from stress and fear; and both receiving and expressing profound love and joy. 

In addition to Cherry’s insights which focus on our inner lives, her messages also call our attention to the magic that surrounds us in the world.  That magic was on full display during our trip to Hawaii.  We experienced amazing interactions with whales, dolphins, turtles, and the Earth herself.  Several times during our trip, local people told us that what we were experiencing was very unusual.  Twice I encountered whales who came closer to shore than they usually do, directly in front of me.  When some of us went snorkeling, several pods of dolphins converged to accompany the group.  Our visit to Kilauea Crater in Volcanoes National Park proved to be particularly magical.  A ranger told us that the lava would be way too low in the crater for us to see.  Then Cherry gathered us together, called to the Goddess Pele, and lava began to dance high above the rim of the crater.  When Cherry dispersed the group, the lava subsided again below the crater rim.  I felt so very privileged to have been a part of that -- and part of the entire trip.

Even the weather cooperated beautifully.  On the “wet” side of the Big Island, we had only a couple light showers the first two days, then no rain for the rest of our ten-day stay.  People kept saying how unusual that was, too!

There were seven of us on our Hawaii trip.  It’s not easy getting seven women to agree on, well, pretty much anything, but Cherry and Vickie did a great job making sure that everyone felt very welcome and included, and that everyone’s needs were taken care of.  They also demonstrated a perfect degree of flexibility, going with the flow and adjusting our schedule as events unfolded.  The accommodations that Vickie found for us (two adjacent Airbnb houses) were very comfortable, and fit our needs perfectly.  She handled all the trip logistics very professionally, without a hitch.  We had time for sightseeing, shopping and exploring nearby beaches, in addition to our various sessions with Cherry and Vickie.

I had an absolutely fantastic time on the Hawaii retreat, beginning to end.  I am now planning to attend Cherry and Vickie’s Mount Shasta retreat in June, and look forward to more retreats after that.


Seattle, WA


This has been quite the beginning to a new year.  It is my hope that each person stay present, visualize the life they want to live and send love out into the world.  In this way, we can create and co-create a world filled with love, tolerance, acceptance and understanding.  A world filled with magic.It has been a bit since we returned from our retreat on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Each day I have sat at the computer with the intention of writing of the magic that filled the nine days we were on the island.  The words have escaped me until now.   DLS_4743webFrom day one it was apparent Spirit had Divinely choreographed each step of our journey.  Even though we were coming in from several states and flying in on different airlines, we all arrived in the Honolulu airport within a short time of each other.  This allowed us time to do a little planning for the meet up at the Hilo airport, which was the finale stop before making our way to the houses.

It didn’t tGroup photo with heartake any of us long to understand that it was not happenstance the people gathered together for the retreat were meant to be there.  Each person, along with the energy they carried added to this magnificent group in a way that was unique to them and beneficial for all.  Each person’s lessons and journey into their own awareness enhanced the total experience.

In a newsletter there is no way to go into detail of all that took place.  We started our mornings with the warmth of the sun, tropical fragrances waking our senses, and the lushness of the land.  In the evening we looked at the brilliant stars and were serenaded by the songs of the frogs.  We saw the Angel numbers 444 at least four times each day.  When we were to go somewhere everything flowed perfectly along with parking spaces that opened for us even in the most crowded of parking lots.

IMG_2794While kayaking, the dolphins swam around us. It was at this time I got into the water. As I peered through the face mask into the depth of the ocean a mother and her pup swam in front of me.  As I watched the two go out of sight a male came gliding by just a few feet from me.  As with the mother, when the male passed me, we made direct eye contact. A moment of pure energy and blessings.  I felt myself pulled to the vibration of the mystical lands of Lemuria.  As I stayed in the water, dolphins swam circles around our kayaks.  While snorkeling in a different area several of our group swam with more than fifty dolphins.  Oh the MAGIC!


Pele blessed us with “The Dance of Fire” on a day one of the park rangers said we would not be able to see the lava from the observatory.  Pele’ sent me a message to gather the Seven Sistah’s.  As we gathered I felt a large ball of energy in front of my heart chakra.  I could feel it grow and as this happened, I/we watched the lava begin to rise from the crater and begin “The Dance of Fire”.  When we stepped away our group noticed the lava began to lower and go out of view.  What a wonderful gift Pele gave to us.

It wasn’t just these blessings that were the magic the retreat held.  This retreat focused on releasing out dated programs and patterns that were of use no longer in each person’s life.  Through the channeled messages, meditations, the healing tools of T.R.E and support of the doTerra essences, the group began to understand more of themselves, let go of what served them no longer with all of this allowing each person to love, accept and claim themselves more fully.  Through the retreat the group not only found the magic of who they are, they also saw how their magic affected the world outside of them.

There were times we separated into different groups and went to various areas.  What I found when this happened was that my Group had messages that were pertinent to whoever I was with.  There was no set area when this happened, we were always where we were meant to be.  My Group brought in messages through the landscape we were visiting, the air and everything else that was around us.  By doing this, my Group reminded each person of the Sacredness of all of Earth and of all of life.  I felt so blessed to be a part of this.  It was with a bit of sadness yet, a walking forward we came home more empowered and more aware.
