I’ve reached a point in this life where I kind of enjoy a challenge. Sounds weird, right? Challenges used to totally stress me out. Even small problems nagged at me; big ones made me obsess over them to the point of making myself physically ill. So how did this turn around? I’ve come to see a challenge as an opportunity for growth. And it’s not quite as simple as “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
I’m an eternal soul, just like you. Before I incarnated, I chose which challenges to take on in this lifetime. It’s not that I made a strict plan for this life, but more of a rough outline. Things will come up, my path may meander here and there, but the overall journey will include the lessons I chose to learn this time around.
With that awareness in mind, challenges take on a whole new meaning. When one pops up, I’m like, “Cool! What do I get to learn this time?” Being in the midst of a challenge isn’t always pleasant, admittedly, but the expanded awareness that results is worth the effort.
Wow, what a month it’s been so far! Have you noticed the waves of energy rolling across our planet, bringing changes big and small? In my little corner of the world, change is making quite the manifestation – I’ll be leaving The Barn at the end of October. While I make space to see where my mission takes me, I’ll maintain Calluna Wellness as a place for free guided meditations and a conduit to free distant healing.
You’ve each touched my life, for which I am so grateful. Many, many thanks to Erin Whiting and Soleil Wellness for supporting my awakening process. Although I’m moving along on my path, the spirit of The Barn will always be a part of me.
Sending so much love & light & gratitude to you all,
I’m so happy to share that I’ve been accepted into the Distant Healing Network as a Volunteer Healer. This worldwide organization has been around since 1996. Their mission is to help heal the world – one person at a time. I love the way they describe “payment” for these services:
“This service is free and without obligation. We would appreciate a note by email after a healing is received. You might like to send your blessings our way, too – or maybe plant a tree, visit a nursing home, or take your granny some cookies – just do a random act of kindness. That will be your payment in full.”
If you would like to request distant healing for yourself or someone you know – or even a pet – visit the DHN website and fill out the appropriate request form.
One thing I’ve learned as a human on this planet: life is all about change. Moving with the flow, rather than fighting it, can enhance the ease and joy of your life experiences.
In the spirit of embracing change, I’ve decided to shift the way I deliver Reiki Training services. I’m eliminating the class schedule that was previously published, and will instead move to one-on-one training sessions. You’ll no longer have to wait for a class, but can book a Reiki Training session whenever you feel called to do so.
I’m still available for small group Reiki Training sessions. If you have a group of friends, family members, or co-workers who’d like to train together, let me know using my contact form. We’ll find a time that works for everyone.
My Reiki Training sessions will continue to be held at The Barn, 2011 Bennett Road, Victor, NY.
Thank you for moving with me through these waves of change!
I meditate daily. Sometimes it’s just a chance to relax. Sometimes I receive guidance from my intuitive side. On occasion, I travel to other times and places. I thought I’d start sharing some of those experiences here. This happened during a recent morning meditation…
I was in a vast, open, dark space, like a huge cavern. Metal support beams criss-crossed from floor to ceiling. They were spaced just far enough apart so you couldn’t easily climb them, to discourage people from doing just that. But I’d been training in gymnastics ever since I was little, so I used my skills on the uneven parallel bars to climb to the top. There was a metal hatch with a keypad. It required a code to unlock it. I had the code – though how I got it was foggy – and typed it in. As the hatch hissed open, I pulled the scarf around my neck up over my nose and mouth. Everyone who lived underground knew that the air “up there” was toxic. I prepared myself to see a devastated wasteland. As the hatch slowly opened, bright light hit my face. I was shocked. I pulled myself out through the hatch and squinted at my surroundings as my eyes adjusted to the light. It was beautiful – green grass, trees, blue sky, sunlight. The air was pure. I realized that the authorities “down below” were keeping this from us, but I didn’t think they even knew the truth of what was on the surface. They were believing their own lies, lies that had been perpetuated for generations.
I thought this was a vision of a post-apocalyptic future, but as I came out of it, I realized that it’s now. We’re living underground. We’re trying to get to the surface.
A few folks have asked me why I picked the name Calluna Wellness. It’s pretty simple, really: Calluna is the scientific name for the heather plant, and my name is Heather! But beyond that, I love what the flower represents. According to ftd.com, “The heather flower’s meaning comes from its genus name, Calluna, which stems from the Greek word kalluno, and means to cleanse or adorn.” This fits beautifully with my mission. By helping you connect with your innate healing abilities, my goal is to facilitate the release of old energetic patterns while guiding you to sync up with the beautiful flow of natural energy. In other words, I want to help you “cleanse and adorn” your energy body!

Meditation and energy healing have led to a wonderful shift in my life! By learning to tune in to my energy body, I’ve been able to start releasing the old beliefs and patterns that held me back. I’ve been more relaxed and healthier than ever before. I started this site so I can share my joy with you!
