The BIGGEST Lie in the Healing Industry (People won't pay for your treatments?)


Be careful of the thoughts you're believing - ESPECIALLY if they limit you. 

Often times, those thoughts aren't even YOURS. 

"You NEED to finish your Massage Therapy Diploma... If you don't, people will not pay for your services. At least Massage Therapy is covered under benefits". 

This was what I was told by the Director of the RMT program I was in, after I told them I wanted to drop out. 

See, while I was in school, I discovered that there is NO amount of effleurage, traction exercises or lymph drainage techniques in the WORLD if someones pain is due to repressed emotions & unresolved trauma. 

Thankfully I have a very strong connection to my own body & awareness, and I knew that what they were saying was not just a limiting point of view, but a straight up lie that practitioners & healers have bought and sold for a long time.

The world normalizes buying $150+ shoes that were made in sw**t shops...

But looks at...

The Joy of Being Wrong

One of my favourite things (I swear I am not a sadist) is the moment I realize I was *gasp* wrong

You ever have those moments?

Where you get that humble pie, realizing you misjudged someone or something? 

It hurts so good. 

These moments are especially hilarious when I was SO CERTAIN that I was "right" and "correct" about my judgement or assumption. 

I dunno why, I just love it and I feel like whoever is watching down on me gets a giggle every time, too. 

"You cute human, you".

This is top of mind for me today because this experience happened last month where I was unknowingly volunteered into running a booth at the International Women's Show in Calgary. 

See, one of our co-facilitators in the SIT Certification, Kristi McLeod, was signed up to run a booth for the 2 day event that was projected to have 20,000 women attend. 

But due to a funeral (that she was obviously not anticipating),...

The cost of avoidance is 🤯

V and I are hitting the road to go and see my Grandma for her 92nd birthday. 

I know what you're wondering.

Yes, we have plenty of road snacks. 
Yes, we will be stopping for americano's. 
No, we did not make a 90's playlist to listen to on the way. 
(We actually RARELY listen to anything while driving. Even 12 hour trips we will drive in total silence. Is that weird?)

Anyways, I am super excited to go see my Grandma. I've been giddy all week. 

But that's not the point of this email, my friend! 

I wanted to write to you and share a lesson I learned this week that might be useful for you (especially if you're a creator of sorts).

It's a big one. One I've learned MANY times. 

(Do you ever have those lessons that you re-learn MULTIPLE times and yet no matter how many times you learn it, it feels just as shiny and profound as the first time? Just me?)

So, on Tuesday, we opened registration for our first ever...

I intercepted a crime last week 😳

Never a dull moment around here

Last week, I took Riley out for a little stroll through the neighbourhood for her evening potty ("potty" said ONLY in a high pitched baby voice obvi), and we had a badass moment intercepting a crime (not said in baby voice).

Now, if you don't know who Riley is, she's our 13.5 year old Italian Mastiff who, as I love to boast, has lived past her median lifespan by 4 years already!

(I am passionate about the raw food diet and she's a living testament as to why).

Once a VERY intimidating guard dog, Riley has slowed down quite a bit and has now become semi-intimidating in her semi-retirement.

I say semi-retirement because she tends to sleep through the door bell ringing, people coming over, and even slept through a handy-man repairing the wall we burnt with our air fryer last week ... oops.

And tends to wake up AFTER the potential threat is gone, sniffs them in the air, and THEN goes into full-fledged protector.

Bless the old girl for trying.

Hope Dealer: Transforming Lives with SIT Sessions - A Case Study

What's it mean to be a Hope Dealer?

That's what this weeks case study is truly about.

This SITuation highlights an inspiring story of a terrifying medical diagnosis that was resolved after just 2 SIT Sessions.

Real talk... 

It's a messed up reality that 12 Million people are misdiagnosed annually in the USA alone; which is responsible for between 40,000 - 80,000 deaths per year. 

The archaic system wants to say it's "out of scope" for practitioners like Acupuncturists and Massage Therapists to talk to clients about emotions... But if not them, then who!? 

That's why, to roll with us, you've gotta have the Soul of a Healer & Heart of a Renegade.

(K but who knew helping humans with emotions would make you a rebel? lol)

Thanks to one of our SIT Practitioners who has the Heart of a Renegade... 

She was able to defy what's normal as an acupuncturist and guide her client to get abnormal (in...

Pain, Fatigue, or Shaky Bowels after facilitating?

"Being an Empath" is one of the greatest gifts that gets the worst rap 

When it comes to:

  • Feeling exhausted after sessions 
  • Bathrooms urgencies (before, after, OR during sessions
  • Feeling cranky AF after sessions & needing alone time to extremes
  • Taking your clients pain (including waking up in the night with weird panic/sweating after working on some people)

#EmpathProblems ARE NOT always the problem! 

It's actually often a mismanagement of energy & responsibility.

Essentially, you're over-functioning in the client-practitioner relationship. 

(And chances are, if this is happening in sessions, this isn't the only place it's happening - ammi right? ).

This shows up as you doing 90% while letting your client (or partner, or co-workers, or whoever) do 10%.

But as a practitioner, healer, coach, guide - however you identify... 

Your job is NOT to fix, process, prove,...

Are you unconsciously rejecting money?

Real talk...

Are you rejecting money clients literally WANT to give you? 

A couple weeks ago, I was struttin' through the Artisan Market, sippin' my peppermint tea, when a jewelry maker caught my eye. 

I've been on the hunt to have custom rings made for O'tion & I for a while and got lit up at her stand.

(Side note, we just celebrated our 10 year anniversary which feels like a really beautiful milestone).

When it comes to the ring, I know exactly what I am looking for; what materials I want used; and how much I want to spend. 

But when I attempted to do business with this incredibly talented jeweller... 

I was shocked by the experience... 

She literally WOULD NOT let me give her $$$ that I WANTED to spend with her because of her judgement about how "unaffordable" the material I wanted to use is. 

(Please note: The cost was literally thousands less than I thought it was going to be. But to...

The Universe is not 💩ing on you (I promise)


Goooooooood Morning and Happy Easter Monday (for our fellow Canadians).

Today is a BIG day in our house (for 2 reasons):

  1. We're doing the walkout with our landlord on the rental we've lovingly coined "The Shadow House." 
  2. It's our 9-year anniversary!!!


First, let's talk about The Shadow House.
(The rental we moved out of 9 days ago).

Bright-eyed, BUSHY Babuh'd (and absolutely friggin' NAIVE about what was in store)...

2 years ago, we drove 17 hours across Alberta & BC, our Kia Sportage keeping pace with a U-Hail trailer bouncing on the back. 

It was September 9th, 2020. The sun was hot & our s#%t eating grins were glimmering. 

2 prairie girls and their beloved mastiff & charming rag doll, headed straight for coastal magic.

Well... You know what I always say...

"We don't always get what we want, we get what we NEED so we can have what we want." 

This may sound cynical, but it's actually an energetic Law of Receiving. 

Put in other...

Unpopular Opinion about PARTNERship


Unpopular Opinion:
You can’t spell PARTNER without the letters in PARENT.

In this moment of my consciousness, I sincerely believe we as adults in partnership, have the very special opportunity to REPARENT each other.

But I think so many people are so friggin’ riddled with their own unmet needs,
they say or think shit about their partners like,

“I’m not their mother, they can figure out/do xyz on their own”.

I believe this is a projection from their ego (aka: their own unmet needs) onto their partner.

Unconsciously guided by the principle of, “My needs didn’t matter, so I sure as HELL AIN’T bending over backward for theirs”

or, “I had to figure it out on my own, so should they”

I am BLESSED AF that V doesn’t have that Ego. ^

She can sense when a child part of mine is present, and she softens and speaks to THAT part of me.

Not the rational 30 year old part of me, but the irrational 5 year...
