August News and Recordings

Glacier National Park

We are still out west enjoying all the incredible places the West has to offer! We have spent time in Grand Teton National Park, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Park so far and we still have a few more stops ahead before we return to Ohio. This month’s recordings offer you a taste of the great energy out here! I hope you enjoy them!

August Special Offer – We are in the middle of two eclipses this month which is an incredible opportunity to shift our perceptions and release old beliefs, so we can make lasting change. To support you with this process, I’m offering 20% off on Empowerment Readings this month (30 minutes or longer). Use the contact form below to request your session (just indicate the length!).

August Empowerment Reading – I love to see what energies are coming for the month ahead! This month’s message is available below:

Crossroads Coaching Scholarship Fund – Free Gift Meditation from Gallatin National Forest in Montana!

This month, I recorded the gift for love offerings to the scholarship fund right on a river in Gallatin National Forest. This meditation will help you release old patterns and beliefs and help you connect with how to allow the love and support available to you to flow in! The meditation works with the river energy and invokes Angelic support to help you make the most of this powerful month! All love offerings to the scholarship fund is used to pay for life coaching sessions for someone who is in need (while allowing me to keep paying my bills instead of doing everything for free!). Last month, I was able to help several people who really needed my support because of the love offerings you shared. THANK YOU!!! I pray that the Angels will send you a thousandfold of that which you give.

You can make a love offering here and the gift recording will be sent to you: Scholarship Fund

June New Moon Reading – Register by Friday 6/3

imageIt is hard to believe we are already heading into June!  Spring goes by so quickly.  I hope that you are planting new seeds and enjoying the return of the sun for those of you living in the colder climates.

This month’s New Moon reading will be connecting with the redwood trees and forests of Northern California where I’m currently at.  Redwoods have a powerful energy and the tree spirits are full of ancient wisdom!  The forests and rivers offer a beautiful energy to help us make the most of the new moon energies for this month.

About the New Moon Recorded Reading:  These readings offer a personalized message to help you connect with spiritual guidance for your own journey for the month ahead.  It also offers a group message, energy balancing and many of the gifts of a full length reading for a fraction of the cost.  Participants will be told which reading number they are to maintain privacy.  This is a pre-recorded reading.  You will be sent a link to listen/download it.  You can learn more and register here:

September Events and Inspiration 2015

ButterflySummer is flying by again! I hope you are having lots of opportunities to get outside and enjoy nature.  I have been enjoying a flock of wild turkeys on my hikes and all the beautiful monarch butterflies.  Being in nature is also a great way to stay connected and centered through the shifting energies happening at this time.  Just leaning against a tree can bring your nervous system back into its most optimal rhythm.  A good thing to remember during this month of changes! For some helpful information about the energies for the month of September, here is a great article to check out: Power Path September Forecast

With the keywords of “trust and faith” for this month, it is a good time to stay connected to your spiritual support team!  Email me if you’d like to schedule a reading to help you get and stay connected.

Cover Mother Earth Musings 001Here is an inspirational message for the month from my book Mother Earth Musings:  Nature-Inspired Guidance for Your Day

Morning Message Twenty


I see an owl sitting on a log on the ground.  A fox is in front of it and sniffing at it.  The owl looks at the fox disdainfully.  The fox is confused.  Why isn’t the owl afraid?  Shaking its head, the fox turns away, clearly not willing to eat an animal that isn’t acting as it should.


The owl’s self-assurance is what strikes me in this image.  Clearly, the owl has great faith in itself and knows who it is.  I get the sense that it doesn’t fear the fox because it doesn’t see itself as inferior or less powerful.  I can feel its confidence in its talons and beak.  It felt like the fox was wise to pick different prey, as I think it would have found the owl very difficult to kill.


Today, I will KNOW my own strengths and have faith in myself.  I will remember that I am not a victim in this life.  I will remember that I am wise.

I pray it is so, and so it is…

Wishing you a wonderful and magical month!

In Person Sessions and Intuitive Healing Circle – 8/11 and Other Upcoming Events

View from Seventh Chakra Vortex SpotAs I shared in an earlier post, I’ve been lucky enough to have an incredibly gifted young man, Ryan O’Toole, interning with me this summer.  He’s going to be in Ohio on Tuesday 8/11 so we will be offering some joint in-person intuitive healing sessions out at the Blessed Foundation retreat center in Medina, Ohio. These sessions will offer intuitive insight, energy system restructuring and clearing, healing, and practical insights.  Sessions will be held at the retreat house or out on the earth energy centers on the property of the Blessed Foundation (depending on the weather). Appointment times are available during the day for 45 or 60 minutes (We have three spots left!). Love Exchange: Community Members – $60/45 minutes or $80/60 minutes; Non-Members:  $80/45 minutes or $100/60 minutes.  Email Nancy to sign up:

We are also going to be offering an Intuitive Healing Circle in the evening for a small group from 6:30 – 9:00 PM.  This will be a guided meditation with intuitive messages, energy balancing, connecting with Angels and Spirit Guides, and the sharing of practical tools and techniques to support your transition into living a more heart-centered life.  Love Exchange:  $35.  We are limiting this to seven participants so that everyone is able to share and get personal guidance and healing. Email Nancy to sign up:

Meet Ryan…

Ryan DowsingI am so grateful to have Ryan O’Toole interning with me! He is an amazing intuitive healer who works closely with natural forces of Mother Earth to shift long-held energetic patterns into new structures that work with the higher dimensional energies now available to us. Along with his sharing of his own natural gifts, Ryan has also gained experience through his recent training with Dr. Jaap Van Etten on working with Dragons, Subtle Beings and finding energy vortex centers and through his wilderness survival training with Tom Brown,Jr. (Best-Selling Author and Owner of The Tracker School).

Subtle Energy Beings Workshop with Dr. Jaap Van Etten, 6/12

If you have been following my blog for a while, you know I have been to Sedona, AZ two times where I worked with metaphysical ecologist and four-time author Dr. Jaap Van Etten.  Jaap is returning for a second visit to Ohio this June. We decided to move the location for the Subtle Energy Beings Workshop with him to the Unity Life Enrichment Center in Medina, Ohio so that we could fit everyone on the waiting list for this event.  As space is no longer an issue, I figured I would pass it on to all of you!  Again, as with the Dragon 101 workshop, a willingness to be open to the possibility that our world is more diverse than we can see with our physical eyes is necessary to appreciate this workshop.  Here are the details: 

Jaap Van EttenSubtle Energy Beings Workshop

Dr. Jaap Van Etten

Friday June 12, 2015 from 6:30-9:00 PM

At Unity of Medina, Medina, Ohio

We define the world we live in by what we see with our eyes. Most people believe that this is Earth as it is. However, our eyes are very limited in their ability to receive information. With the development of our extrasensory perception we begin to realize that there is much more out there than our eyes tell us to believe.  Gaia is the consciousness of Earth and all that lives on her. Within the Gaia system there are many worlds that we call invisible. These worlds are occupied by large numbers of invisible beings. There are more invisible beings than there are visible ones, which means that there are millions of invisible beings.  In this mini workshop we begin to explore these invisible worlds. We will connect with several invisible beings to make you excited enough to continue to explore these worlds. We will focus on those beings that like to interact with humans. Ultimately we will have to become aware of these worlds as part of a deeper understanding of the world we live in. This workshop may be held around the campfire (weather and numbers permitting).

Love Exchange:  $35/personBirth of A New Consciousness

About Jaap Van Etten, PhD – Jaap was born and educated in the Netherlands.  He received his PhD in biology in Amsterdam, specializing in ecology.  For the past twenty-four years, his focus has been on metaphysical ecology.  He studies and teaches about human, earth, stone, crystal, and crystal skull energies and how they interact.  He also studies the subtle worlds along with the beings connected to them.  He is the author of several books, including his most recent – Birth of a New Consciousness.  He currently resides in the Sedona, Arizona area with his wife, Jeanne Michaels.

Financial Abundance Intuitive Life Coaching Class – Wed 5/6

turtleI just finished  my first Spring Series of Intuitive Life Coaching Classes focusing on the Quantum Physics/EFT protocol last week.  It was so much fun!  I loved seeing what manifested for people and for myself as we worked with the process to shift limiting beliefs.  I’m really excited to share the process with a second group, as I feel the more of us who are using this process, the easier it is for us to start experiencing significant change.

 The first class of the second spring series is on Financial Abundance on Wednesday May 6th at 7PM EST.  Registration Deadline is TUESDAY May 5th. This call will be done on the conference call line and will be recorded if you aren’t able to join in live.  I have TWO spots left if you’d like to join in.  I am only having six participants because I do personalized readings for each person to help them connect with their limiting beliefs.  The sharing is done anonymously (you will be given the number of your message) and the intention is set that all the messages hold gifts for the whole group.  You are welcome to participate in one class or several.  Each class has a unique focus and each week will have a specific tool from Why Quantum Physicists Do Not Fail by Greg Kuhn that you can practice between classes.

Full details on the class and the link to register are on this page: Intuitive Life Coaching Classes

Here is a Grace card from Cheryl Richardson for your day today…


“The more we follow our intuition, the more we’ll find that the right doors open to assist us in fulfilling our life’s purpose.”

This is a great message for today! This week’s community message really emphasized that we are in transition and the best way to navigate it is to keep turning our hopes and dreams over to the Divine and trusting that we will be motivated when some action on our part is needed.

Sending you all much love!

Special Offer and New Product – Empowerment Crystals!

Rose Quartz in Bag 002Can you believe we are almost at the end of 2014?  What a year this has been!  I know I am not the same person who started out the year in January.  So many changes have occurred internally and externally.  The process hasn’t always been easy, but as always, change brings many gifts too.

This fall, I’ve found myself spending a lot of time getting to know my own Team of Angels and Spirit Guides.  With the changes that have occurred, we are rediscovering Guides that have been more in the background until now. These spiritual relationships will grow increasingly important as we move into 2015.  That is why I am offering a new service/product to help provide a bridge to amplify and strengthen these connections.

Empowerment Crystals are exactly what the name describes. They are crystals that empower our connection to our Spiritual Team of Angels and Spirit Guides or to the Earth Energy Centers that are so important in our spiritual growth.  These crystals are programmed to have a sole purpose – to be a bridge connecting you to these powerful resources. As we connect more deeply with the Divine helpers and power centers Mother Earth offers, we gain greater understanding of who we are and why we are here.Empowerment Crystals on an Powerform Activator Disc

For the last month, I’ve been learning about working with crystals from the perspective of subtle energy skills and also creating my own Crystal Team to help me strengthen and clarify my connection with the Divine beings and Earth Centers I rely on.  The process has been fascinating and I am very excited to share the results of it with all of you!

Empowerment Crystals include a 10 minute MP3 recorded meditation introducing you to the Angel, Spirit Guide or Earth Energy Center that the crystal will be programmed to connect you with.  I also am offering phone empowerment crystal readings which will provide more in-depth interaction with these Divine helpers, as well as guidance for your current goals or life path, energy balancing, and practical coaching suggestions.

Trust Your Intuition – Weekly Message and News 12/15/2013

weekly bulletin header

 Hinckley Lake 2013

Nature-Speak Oracle card from Ted Andrews – Elm – “Trust Intuition.” 

A Note from Nancy

I have been doing many sessions with people who are becoming increasingly clear about who they are and why they are here.  Sometimes this process is challenging, as fears about letting go of defense mechanisms and thought patterns rise up.  One of the things I’ve heard over and over from my spiritual support team is no matter what the question, the answer is always the same – to love.  It sounds trite, but try it this week.  If your back is hurting, trying putting your hand on your back and telling it how much you love and appreciate it.  If your loved one frustrates you, spend a moment focusing on how much you love them and want them to find peace.  I’ve been told that what we love is irrelevant.  It is the act of choosing love that brings peace and healing to our systems.  Love is life force and when it is flowing, we feel healthy and empowered.  If you are having one of those times when you can’t find anything that you want to love, then go outside.  The Earth is so intricate and beautiful.  Let yourself take a moment to marvel and the complex, yet simple, world we live in.  Try hugging a tree or sitting on the ground and just observing.  Nature offers much to love and be grateful for.

Wishing you all a deeply peaceful and love-filled week!


Weekly Guidance

Guidance for the week ahead:  The Nature-Speak Oracle (Ted Andrews): Elm – Trust Intuition (reversed):  “There are things you are not seeing or do not want to see around you.  You are ignoring the signs and your own instincts.  If you continue, situations will become more complicate and convoluted.  Do not make any major decisions at this time.  Do not allow others to pressure you into choices.  If you are not comfortable with them, that is a signal to delay or to decline.  Assert your will.” 

This Week

12/18/2013:  Last day to register for the December Empowerment Call

December Empowerment Circle – Manifest Transformation:  Registration deadline is Wednesday 12/18/2013: Description December’s Focus is Manifestation.  For this month’s empowerment circle, the focus will be to manifest transformation in some area of your life.  I’ll be using the Tarot of Transformation cards (Willow Arlenea and Jasmin Lee Cori) along with sharing whatever I pick up intuitively for you during this reading.  These cards combine spiritual and psychotherapeutic traditions and are really a powerful tool!  The recording will be done anonymously (you’ll be told the number of your reading) and all messages will have gifts for all listening.  An intention setting meditation will be done at the end of the session and an Angel oracle card will be shared for the group. Cost is $12/Soul Friend Community Members; $15/Non-Members.  You can learn more and register at this link:  Empowerment Circles

2014 Manifest Your Dreams Empowerment Readings –  Special rate of $10 off for a 30 or 60 minute reading good through 12/24/2013.  This can be purchased for yourself or as a gift certificate for a loved one.  The most important step in bringing your dreams to fruition is setting a clear intention for what you wish to manifest.  For this empowerment reading, we will begin by asking for intuitive guidance in the form of a metaphor/vision to help you get clear on what you wish to create.  Then we will work together to set a clear intention for 2014 and invoke Divine support to bring it into being.  I will also share any energetic or coaching tools that seem relevant to empower you to manifest your intention.  I’ll finish with a two card reading from The Tarot of Transformation by Willow Arlenea and Jasmin Lee Cori which offers a multidimensional approach incorporating the work of Psychotherapist Carl Jung along with other modalities.   30 Minute Readings or Gift Certificates:  $35/30 minutes or $65/60 Minutes (Members) and $50/30 minutes or $80/60 Minutes for non-members.  To purchase, email me and I’ll send you a PayPal link.
