By now you've likely noticed that we had a major setback with the site and lost most of our content. We've been diligently working on restoring what we can, and will continue to do so over the coming weeks.
In the meantime, please enjoy the articles that are being (re)posted. I've often found that we can relearn and reapply their teachings every time we read them.
Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to an exciting year!

Much of what I have learned from Guidance is about how not to add to the emotional turmoil on Earth - by staying calm, holding my center, focusing on the truth that is my life, my reality, in this Now moment.
Otherwise we can end up feeding that which is upsetting us in the first place and realistically, how does getting upset help anything? How?
So much of what we read and see on the news is not presented truthfully anyway. In each moment, what do we choose to believe in? Something presented to us on a glowing box by a talking head reading a script?
Or the truth that is right in front of us every day.
The truth of our lives. The smile of a loved one. The warm soft fur of a beloved pet under our hand. A simple pot of soup bubbling on the stove. Sunlight warming the earth. Wind-driven clouds scudding across the sky.
These are truths you can settle into. Rest in. Breathe in.
These are truths that no one can take away from you. No matter what.
I used to think that getting all hooked up emotionally in the drama of tragic events was "compassion" but what I have learned is that all I was actually doing was allowing events in the world to resonate with my own unprocessed trauma.
Our fear about what is happening 'out there' is simply a reflection of what we have not yet realized about our own Selves.
The world is our mirror.
The fact that we notice fear arising within us can be used as an 'arrow' that Guidance talks about, pointing us toward those parts of ourselves that still hold unprocessed emotions. So, the fear can literally be seen as a blessing, if we make a conscious choice in the moment to see it in this way. To flip that coin over and realize the opportunity that is there for us in that moment. To see it as a gift we can open to receive.
So feel the fear and acknowledge it - but take a step back and realize it for what it is - simply a vibration, an energy. Realize it is never about what is 'out there', no matter how much the news media or your mind would like you to believe it.
It is always about what is right in here.
If one can take a step back, shift perception and bring it back to self - there, in that moment, is the power we can claim for ourselves. The power to take responsibility for that fear, discover it's source and to heal.
The truth is - we are not tiny helpless people trapped here on Earth in a maelstrom of chaos. The truth is - we are enormous Beings who have chosen to be here on this blessed planet to experience events during this historic shift. To help ourselves. To help humanity. To help our Mother Earth.
It is time. It is time we acknowledge that fact and step forward into the truth of Who We Are. It is time we start walking that walk we have dreamt of for decades. As a conscious choice. With love, humility, awareness and compassion. The pedal is meeting the metal. It is time for us to begin to step into becoming All that We Are.
There is much material here that can serve as a valuable resource in moments of difficulty or confusion. I encourage everyone to take a moment and explore these offerings in the knowledge that they have been presented for the benefit of us all.
Events for 2017 are currently in the planning stages, so please check back soon!
Please contact Cathy via the Contact page if you would like to schedule a private or group session.
It is important to understand that what is happening now, you are in part responsible for. Every kind thought, every compassionate act, every moment arising in wisdom, all contributes to this wave of change.
Rejoice! This is what you have been praying for - peace, happiness, prosperity.
Don't let fear change you. Don't go into fear now.
It is time to hold firmly compassion and peace and kindness, in order to continue on with this change. Any moment you experience happiness, hold on to it, be with it, then dedicate it to humanity. Anytime you experience peace, hold on to it, breathe into it, then dedicate it to humanity. You are beginning to experience critical mass changes, the 100th monkey theory is presenting itself in a tangible way now. Stay steadfast, hold onto your dreams.
Remember you are all connected at such a larger level; what you say, do and think effects everyone on some level in this reality.
Peace, happiness and compassion will help you rise above the lower energies that are arising. Don't get caught up in the vortex of fear - it will only create more of the same. We are not saying become ostriches hiding your heads in the sand, we are saying be aware and alert and conscious in the understanding you are creating what is next for yourselves.
Blessings to all of you in acknowledgement of becoming powerful creators in life.
May all Beings find peace in that.
As the sun sets upon your Earth every day,
It is not dependent upon thought, effort, pain or suffering.
Like the breath, it is consistent.
May that be every Being's experience, every day.
May every Being find peace in the fact that,
Every day the sun will set,
And every morning it will rise.
May every Being find peace within the knowingness,
That as sure as the sun will set every day,
As sure as the sun will rise every morning,
That every Being is blessed,
Every Being is surrounded in grace and compassion,
And that all that is necessary,
is that every Being knows that,
And sits in the peace of that.
May every Being find comfort and respite from any pain and suffering,
Any fear and delusion, in the fact that
As the sun sets, as the sun rises,
They also live, they also breathe,
And they also always have an opportunity and choices
Of peace available to them.
Contemplate this, Sweet Ones.
Stay with this, Sweet Ones.
This is reality.
This is what you know to be true and consistent in your lives.
It will help to support you.

There is one statement that I really needed to get on the inside, To the degree one sees oneself, is the degree one creates one's reality. The meaning behind these words have transformed my relationship with my creative work; thanks to Cathy. Sessions with Guidance during the past few years have helped me understand my part in the role of my career as an author and entertainer. I have taken control of "my role" in my career and seen results from our work together. If everyone could be so lucky to have Guidance in their life?
