Dreams are very important to me and my work. It is in our dreams that we let go of the human (3 dimensional world) limitations that keep us from knowing our true selves. As I travel my path and continue to help others on theirs, I thought it would be helpful to share some of my dreams with you. I’ve been so close to Jesus (in the most non-religious way imaginable) since I was a child. He has physically held me and guided me through the craziest and most confusing times. This post is not to offend anyone else’s interpretation of who Jesus is.
Dougie and I began our Monday Moon-day celebration with a calming, warming winter drink that both supports the immune system and aids in gentle cleansing. Plus, to us…it’s pure deliciousness. Read more
Autism is on the Rise
Studies tell us that we are at epidemic rates of a mysterious, puzzling disorder called autism (autism spectrum disorder) among humans. But, ever since meeting my son again in this lifetime and experiencing his life with him, I have correlated his way of being with the wonders and the ills of nature, and in particular –our planet herself. In this Time of our Reality.
Because Mama Gaia (Earth) Has a Message
If Mama Earth were given an expert evaluation, I assure you that she’d come out with a label of ASD. And, not JUST because these labels make money for the system who keeps us sick. But, because all of Mama Earth’s symptoms add up to a toxic overload that expresses itself in the form of regressive development (bees becoming extinct, more animals being born with birth defects, loss of minerals in soil, loss of crops); inability to socialize appropriately for her age (Mama is at least 4 billion, and her cells (US) struggle to communicate); digestive and systemic organ malfunction (earth quakes, tornadoes, climate change).
Understanding the Gift of Change
Now, I’m not implying that these are all BAD things. They are Mama’s way of pushing out the toxins that she has been unknowingly injected with — (pesticides that inhibit her nervous system and so much more). Mama’s outward expression of war, planetary upheaval and confusion stems from her body’s need to push out toxins and renew herself. She is healing. She will survive with or without us. Her autism-like symptoms are her message. It allows us to know what she needs. We can either give it to her, or quite honestly — she can take it and sacrifice us. As her cells, we are quite adaptable to her toxicity. We can learn to live in an unhealthy environment. BUT, Mama knows best. She knows how it feels to be whole and she wants to get back to wholeness.
I’ve worked with hundreds of children with autism and have lived with my own boy for 7 years. I’ve seen the hand- flapping, toe-walking, tantrumming, head-banging, seizures, diarrhea, allergies and more. And, I see these symptoms as our bodies’ way of trying to cleanse, balance and get back to WHOLENESS.
My son was unable to break down proteins due to a lack of proper bacteria and enzymes in his digestive system. We discovered this because he was spinning. We observed when the spinning began, and correlated it with his indigestion of proteins. He spun to balance internal overload with output. He was relieving himself. To ease his pain, we removed protein except for in its predigested fermented form, and then healed his gut so that he could digest on his own. He NEVER had a spinning spell again. When needed, our son would spin, hand-flap, make buzzing noises — all to bring his inner and outer body into wholeness. As he healed, we joined him in these activities to help him feel recognized and help us understand what was going on and why. When it was possible, we would lead him out of repetitive activities.
It’s remarkable to me how we are designed in such a way that our bodies can bring us into balance– even if our conscious minds are unaware of what’s going on. But, in quantum physics, if we observe something…. that is to say, if we become aware of it– the results change. The results are now at least partially dependent on the observer.
So, imagine KNOWING that when your child is tantrumming or spinning, this is a needed step in his return to wholeness. What is bringing him out of wholeness? If someone cannot digest protein (for example), feeding them streak does not give them any protein. This food becomes toxic to them. It putrefies in his gut. So, in this case you’d be dealing with a complication of toxic overload from undigested food, allergic reaction to said food and protein deficiency.
This chain-link of reasoning behind autism symptoms can leave a parent feeling very confused and alone.
The journey to healing speeds up once we embrace the gifts of this change. These symptoms are taking you somewhere. They are not meant to leave your children in pain. It’s quite a leap for some to trust their instincts and take their healing back to Earth, and slowly ALLOW nature’s power to do HER wonders. To hug the Earth is to experience one of the most healing vibrations that we know.
But, we are taught to jump into recovery, killing autism and all of the bad bugs that come along with it with chelation, factory-made supplements and the like. I didn’t have to go there. I simply embraced our mama. Supplements and modalities that do work are the ones that mimic nature– and I have experienced their usefulness for short-lived periods of time.
Why do you think Mother Nature would react in earth quakes and climate change?
Her condition is not a mistake. It is just as it needs to be in order for her to move on to her next phase of consciousness.
When I met my son, and learned that he had autism, I understood that he came here to be the way he is so that people can learn what he and the earth need to heal.
People with autism carry this message of higher consciousness. They are different thinkers. Some call them neuro-diverse. We are headed into a phase of consciousness where human caca like banking systems, governments and institutions are crashing and being re-born differently.
When the dust settles, what’s left will be a diverse group of people with far more intellectual, creative and manifestation power than ever before.
It’s not time to control or medicate and put these beautiful souls in a box labeled autism. It’s a time to listen to them and do everything we can to ALLOW their amazingness to come through.
We are Just as We Should Be
Science continues to prove a divine plan, and although we have some pretty extreme manifestation powers, we are not working at this alone.
Our kids with autism are just as they should be. They are fulfilling their purpose quite well because people are waking up all over the place. But, being as they should be and being sick are two different things. I see it as part of my own purpose to help people wake up to the fact that accepting autism has nothing to do with accepting illness. Once the key to the illness part is discovered, everyone can begin feeling better. And neuro-diversity is not illness.
If you’re a mama or a dad of an angel with autism, know that she/he is here to teach you too! So, as we join hands in gratitude for the blessings– we discover even more healing.
We are All Healing
Healing is what healing means to you. And, I’m not trying to sound like Forrest Gump. I’m only reminding you that only you can feel your purpose and your path. You know where you are supposed to be.
I see healing as change into a place that feels better. I see it as a letting go of what feels wrong and embracing what’s right. And I’m so grateful to be alive at a time when I can experience this with you.
These days there probably isn’t one of us who does not feel the residual energetic effects of our Mama Earth’s auto-immune disease. It’s real and we know it. But at the same time, we have the power to help one another transcend it.
We are not our labels.
As a matter of fact, we are perfect. We simply forgot that. If we remembered our perfection and the light that we came from, we would understand our power to heal.
Let go of all that ails you today (whatever you call it)! It’s your key into higher consciousness!
Please join us in giving of your heart’s vibration in honor of experiencing a mass shift in consciousness. Forget the problems and fill your day with light.
I’d love to help you create Bliss in your life through healthy eating! Contact me for your personalized session!

Our Reiki classes are so much more than just the sharing of beautiful energy healing. We are creating a conscious community of compassionate healers!
When Gina first became attuned to Reiki, she did it to help her grandfather who was on his way To leaving this life. Little did she know that this beautiful practice of energy healing would bring health, peace and clarity to Dougie as he recovered from autism, to Doug as he recovered from a seizure disorder and to herself in every aspect of healing that she needs.
Since then, there have been countless miraculous experiences like helping children heal injuries and organ malfunction from a distance, helping people connect with their own intuitive and psychic abilities, and simply expanding the consciousness of those who desire.
Now, our whole family has been attuned to Reiki, and we allow that beautiful energy to flow through everything that we do. This makes our need for sharing even stronger.
Advanced Reiki Classes for 2013: Earth and Self Healing
Come join Gina and Doug for an inspired adventure into the art of Reiki Healing with a Shamanic Twist. These classes offer a practical take on using both modern and ancient healing techniques to help yourself and others through pain, indecision and illness – as well as heighten your consciousness and open you to your spiritual path.
The year 2013 lives within an energy field of rapid advancement into higher consciousness for our planet as a living being and all of us who live within Her. There are also major galactic shifts that influence our expansion. We are truly coming into an integration period where we are calling back the parts of our selves that have been lost over lifetimes, and realizing that each one of us holds parts of each other. We are One. And, we are figuring that out.
Ancient Shamans and “medicine people” understood how to live with our planet and use and restore her gifts for the growth of all. Integrating these teachings with modern experience, we can learn to transcend our problems by transforming our perspectives and heightening our vibrations.
We have more than just the power to heal. We have the inner power to shift. This connection offers one of the deepest, most satisfying feelings we have ever experienced and that is why we are sharing it with you now. We know that if this class is calling you — you will really dig it too.
These are Advanced Certification Courses in Usui Ryoho Shikki Reiki
When you complete the courses you will be certified to practice Reiki on yourself and others. This can be included into your healing practice or can be the foundation for a new healing or meditation practice. This certification may be used professionally. Please see your own state’s laws for using Reiki professionally.
You may want to become attuned and certified if you:
*Love helping others
*Need your own deep healing
*Have sick children or family members in your care
*Work in the medical field
*Work with people with special needs
*Would just LOVE to share your amazing vibrant gifts with the world.
Reiki is great for doctors, nurses, acupuncturists, massage therapists, yogis, parents, teachers, realtors, cooks and… YOU
All of our graduates receive 1 year of e-mail support and complimentary admission (audit) to our Reiki Classes up to the highest level you have completed with us, FOR LIFE. We also hook you up with our other students for group support, discussion and practice.

The other day I met up with some friends who I hadn’t seen in a long time and of course we got into a rather deep conversation about life and what we are doing in our own realities. It seems like this discussion is always coming up with me wether it be with a stranger or a life partner. While having the conversation I sat back and reflected to myself about how truly amazing we all are and what makes us do what we all do on a daily basis.
I was thinking about the person who goes to his job in a cubicle, the yoga instructor who sings to her students, the business man who drives his Lamborghini to his favorite coffee shop across the street instead of walking. We are all living out our realities. We have all chosen to be here. We have chosen to subscribe to this reality and participate in its course.
Gina and I have been talking so much about the subject of reality lately that it really gets my head spinning at times.
I believe that each person lives in his/her own reality in correspondence with everyone else, but that doesn’t mean that everyone is living in the same reality. I am not talking about parallel realities here, which is another equally interesting and important concept. I am talking about people living in your reality, however completely disconnected from the life that you have created.
Have you ever wondered how others varied so much from you in their perspectives, ideals and awareness? How are people allowing problems in their realities and not seemingly noticing them. It’s as if you are living in another world. Maybe the truth isn’t so far off. Just like the colorblind man, these others can not see the colors of the beautiful butterfly or the red blood on a politicians money, because you can’t see what you don’t know is there.
We are all here to live out our realities. I believe my life is a quest to learn and grow. The wonderful truth about it is that none of us can say for certain what our purpose is here, for none of us can prove indefinitely where we come from or how we managed into this physical form. It is all simply guesses, educated or not.
I am here to learn and grow. To do the acts that bring me into awareness and a highly developed consciousness. I couldn’t imagine a life without miraculous events and new experiences. I have come too far to subscribe to someone else’s ideas of life. It is my path to explore and be me at all costs. Some people blindly follow doctors orders, where I wouldn’t blindly follow anything. It’s more than the acceptance of someone else’s view point, it’s the desire to live my path next to theirs and understand that we are all on our own paths. That path is theirs and this path is mine.
I’ve learned to love everyone for their unique journey and never worry for their safety. I find myself worrying less each minute. Worry never changed my situation, it only incorporated into my reality. Live the life you want to. I believe it is the reason that you and I are here. I hope to see you out there smiling. Enjoy your day… Always.
We’ve spent the last 5 months touring the west coastline of Mexico, and really healing up after some challenges last year. Doug is completely free of seizure meds and hasn’t had a seizure in well over 2 years! We’ve met new and lasting friends, learned so much about the value of family and our beautiful planet’s gifts, and we’ve taught classes and given healing sessions in some pretty magical spaces. Unschooling is the bomb. Dougie is uncovering his true abilities, and it’s amazing to witness and experience with him.
So, we’re ready to Bring the BLISS to YOU!
Do you long for MORE ENLIGHTENMENT?
Do you want to be MORE in-tune with your body?
Would you like to reach your ideal weight and feel great?
Would you like to feel SOURCE ENERGY COURSING through your VEINS?
Whatever you’ve been wanting to experience– We’ve got something to LIGHT Your Path!
Each Day we help people from across the world find their BLISS. Our clients have overcome everything from autism to debt, from cancer to personal & professional relationship slumps — and so much more.
We have a DREAM to create a New BLISS HEALING MOBILE where we can travel the world and bring our services right to the doorsteps of those who desire. ( if you’ve been following us, you know that our first House on Wheels didn’t make he trip, Bless Her Heart). I can just imagine finally hugging in-person some of the lovelies who I’m BLESSED to work with from a distance every day! It’s already happening! And we just want more. Bliss is addictive like that.
So, we decided to go ahead with our tour even before the new House on Wheels comes into fruition! Why wait? We’re going Eco-Style — which means we’ll be taking public and mass transit whenever possible. We’ve got our bus passes and our plan to Be the Change!
We hope you will come out and see us or even help us host an event in your town!
We begin in Chicago on July 14-15 with some high vibe Reiki Certification Classes, and then we travel east, south and west!
Places that we plan on taking by storm are:
Beach Potluck and DreamScape Workshop TBA
Autism Undone Talk TBA
New York, New York
Asheville, North Carolina
Los Angeles, California
We are so STOKED to announce that we have a new FREE Autism Undone Talk available to present in any of these locations. So, for those of you who are in need of autism recovery support and information…. Stay tuned!
We will also be offering Reiki Certification Classes and several special consciousness and intuition building workshops such as “Working with Spirit Guides” and “Dream Scapes”– uncovering the hidden messages in your dreams and using dreams as a healing tool!
So, if you live in, around or between these beautiful places and want to arrange a gathering in your space, let us know.
The first round of travel through the US will culminate with a week-long Reiki Retreat (All Level Certifications) in a beautiful energy vortex town called Sayulita, Mexico in late September. This amazing opportunity was gifted to us through a new friend here in Mexico, and we just can’t wait to share it.
Thank You For Your Support. We Believe Your Support Means More Healing for the Planet!
Doug, Gina and Doug
I have been thinking about what creates vindictive thoughts and revenge lately, because I was recently accused of having them. It all seems like a truly sad venture to have your heart set on hurting another person. I understand that wanting to get even with someone is a human emotion, but to what end? I am not telling you to let people slap you around, and at the same time I am not the person to say to get your revenge. So, where is the middle ground?
Recently I had a landlord in my life who was trying to goad me into a confrontation with her. Every day I continued my personal work and left her alone, yet the situation continued to grow. I was told that I was a very negative person with some master plan to only bring pain to others. These comments didn’t hurt me because I knew the truth, but then she crossed my fine line, which was to attempt her tactics on my wife. It was hard for me to see the positive side in this anymore.
The night before this happened, Gina and I were on the beach and we did a Reiki Healing Attunement on the issue. In retrospect, it makes perfect sense that this woman would go after Gina the next morning, as we needed something to open up my eyes. We immediately packed up our belongings, requested a refund (which we only got some of) and left to find a much better place. Now, instead of living with bugs coming out of our faucets and the smell of drugs every day, we are staying in a very clean and beautiful hotel right on the ocean. A king-size bed with air conditioning after a long stay in the jungle is magical.
If someone is trying to hurt you, then ask yourself why. Maybe you have something that they don’t and they are mad at you for it. Maybe that person has serious problems of their own to deal with and they find it comforting to take it out on you. Most arguments that I run into turn out to be big misunderstandings. One person believes that the other is trying to harm them for some silly reason and the other thinks that person is just evil.
I attracted my situation. It’s hard for me to admit. I have had an aggressive past that taught me a great deal about how to treat and deal with others. I am not the dog that barks at the mailman. I like to leave people to their own growth. In not participating in the repeated attacks of having my utilities randomly shut off or crazy emails about my character, I helped increase her anger. It wasn’t my goal. I was simply trying to not involve myself deeper into a bad relationship.
When you get to the core of people you remember that we are all children. We are all uniquely and divinely placed here as individuals on our paths. We might pick up ideas about life and handling conflicts from media and society, but in the end we are all simply little creatures running around learning together. We are all weird. You’re weird and I’m weird. The goal is not to overcome your weirdness, but to grow with it and understand the real you and your part in this collective reality.
When you are seeking revenge on another you must remember that each person is simply another organism on the planet trying to make it their way. Hurting them in any fashion only hurts you. You cannot wholly gain from hurting another. You might feel positive about it for a while, but that is the same high that you can get from drugs. It is your momentary fix. Instead of putting that energy into destruction, try spending it on bettering yourself. Go to yoga, seek out your promotion, elevate the real you.
My upbringing raised me to attack all situations. I was always looking for an edge on an opponent. I must say though that all of my dueling never equalled one beautiful day on the beach with my family. I can’t recollect a successful fight that felt as good as making my way in the world. I learned on my own that my path to true happiness was through finding the bright side in my life and putting all of my energy towards it.
The truth is that the only way to truly feel good is to work on you, not on someone else. Live YOUR life for YOU. Don’t worry about others. Focus on you. I am not saying to be selfish or uncaring. It’s truly quite to the opposite. What I am saying is to be the beacon of honesty, truth and success that you wish for everyone else. The best way to help others is to show them through your example. You don’t need to harm anyone, just live the life of light that you were meant to. Be free!

Wow! All of this thankful talk has really got me. I’m amazed. We’ve come full circle in so little time, all because we stopped stressing over what was bothering us and kept focus on what makes us happy.
Last month seems like a dream to me now. Back then I was whimpering over plumbing problems in the third world country we decided to visit on our Tour de Bliss– and now, I’m lounging in a comfy chair on a breezy roof-deck listening to the birds and roosters sing.
If we were setting out to improve anything, it would’ve been our financial situation and how that also relates to all of those material human stuffs that we need for balance such as our physical health and connection to our bodies, availability of healthy food, our home-front, and our business and work situation. When things seemed to get “bad” for us, it was always on the material front. Our spirits freaken shine like neon lights. We know we are on the right life path. But, there have been times when we’ve cheated ourselves out of full reward for our work. This left us tired, sick and often struggle-working for money.
We created the gratitude experiment to change that. Not knowing what we could possibly do differently, on the work front (as far as career changes etc), we decided to put extra faith in what we already do. We teach people about energy, love, gratitude and co-creation of Bliss.
So, we’ve given ourselves an extra heaping helping of our own medicine.
Here’s our Lists of the moment.

Having done this each day for close to a month now has helped us measure some concrete results.
We have officially increased our readership, private client base and income, and still been able to spend less time online
We’ve greatly improved our homeschool/unschool program for Dougie and he seems to be learning in greater detail and with greater interest and involvement.
We have met countless amazing people in our new town and have been shown amazing generosity and hospitality. We have found everything we were looking for in a town that will provide us with healthy food, friends, support, stability, fun, conscious events and more.
Can you just tell that we’re happy? We’re satisfied! We will be teaching some classes and setting up shop here (with a few small trips to ruins etc) until we get our new Bliss Mobile. Looks like after 12 years, we’re in a place inside ourselves that fosters creativity and spirit enough for me to feel like I can continue writing a novel series I started so long ago. Gratitude seriously reminds me that that place has always been there, it’s just ever -growing. Now, I see it more clearly.
