Donations for my Winter Break

It's that time again. Time for rest.

Usually I take about a week and a half off at the end of the December to re-charge my spiritual batteries, and I'll be doing that again this year.

Unfortunately, being self-employed means that I don't have any paid-time-off, so like I did last year, I'm posting this request for donations to help cover the time of my not working.

Your donations support my still rising costs of living like rent, food, healthcare insurance, other insurances, and more. None of this is going to any lavish vacation on a desert island. You're just supporting the basics.

So if you'd like to help me, I'd appreciate you making a donation. The goal this year is to get to around $2,000. Thanks for your help!

I would also encourage you to donate appropriately to your financial situation. For some of you, a $2 donation is all that you can offer. If you feel moved to give, that's wonderful and whole-heartedly accepted. But for another, you may be in a stronger financial situation to give more. If you are moved to give, then I encourage you to give more. And for a few of you, $2,000 would be no issue at all to give. If that is true for you, then I encourage you to give at that level or above.

Only you know what you truthfully can give and what intuitively feels right. And remember, that my work grows or shrinks depending on how much support I am given.

For whatever support you do offer, thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is an honor to serve all of you!

In love and kindness,


Costs of Living Continue to Rise

I'd like to say that costs of living are slowing down where I am, but they aren't. My rent, healthcare insurance, and Internet all went up just in the last month. It means I need to pay about $100 more each month. Once again, these requests for donations are helping with the basics to take care of myself and to keep this whole spiritual teaching going.

For more information on the different services that I offer and which are also supported by donations, you can check out this blog post:

Thanks to all my 2018 Donors

I want to send a big "thank you" to all my 2018 donors. All of your donations mean so much to me. I couldn't do this work without your support. You give me the ability to do this work and to use my suggested donation methodology for my sessions. The suggested donation allows anyone who wants to work with me and with whom I am intuitively guided to work with the ability to connect without being prohibited by a set price.

I appreciate those of you who have donated specifically to support my online talks. You can find recordings of those talks that you supported on this link:

I also want to thank those of you who decided to become regular donors. I recently set up a subscription that allows people to automatically donate $15 a month. This regularity helps to bring more financial stability to this work, and I deeply appreciate that.

If you're interested in becoming a regular donor, you can learn more and do so on this link:

Thanks to my Regular Students

I have to specifically thank my regular students for their support. Your regular donations are the financial bedrock of this whole thing. Thanks for your generosity throughout this year.

For my long-term students, thanks for your support through the years that we've been working together!

PayPal and New Donors

If you haven't donated before and would like to do so, I accept all my donations via PayPal. PayPal has been a secure way of sending and receiving money for years. If you have any concerns about using PayPal, here's a link to some of their security information:

If you have further questions about donating, feel free to message me through my contact form. I am happy to address your concerns!

Building Support for the Future

Finally, donating to me and becoming a financial supporter is support not just for today, but for tomorrow. There's a lot more that I want to do, but in this world, the energy of money is the vehicle for doing a lot of it right now. So even if it is only a $2 donation, that helps me get to my goal of $2000 for my time off, and it helps me to rest up and have the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual energy to continue to grow personally and to grow this work.
