This particular blog post has taken me some time to compose.
How does one articulate a profound and transformative 10 day learning process into a succinct and expressive summary blog post?
It sure beats me :) I will do my best!
I have been following a lot of gut-level allurements this year; pursuing learning adventures, relationships and experiences based on an internal magnetism even when my "logical" mind resists. This has led to a lot of magic and incredible growing in my life.
My decision to enroll in the Power of Clearing Coaching Certification Program with Sandy Levey this past December 27, 2013 to January 6, 2013 was one of these adventures
I marvel at this work:
To illustrate this specifically, I would like to share with you my own story:
The Quiet Doodler
This joy and ability to sit and doodle has stayed with me through my life, appearing as a productive, fun means to take class notes and study.
I am so grateful that I never lost the impulse to doodle or pushed it away from myself.
Here's the thing about my doodling - some time in my childhood years, I had internalized the beliefs that drawing was not important. To doodle was an offense even worse than drawing! My belief was that at least with drawing one aims to capture "realistic" scenes of life which was a much more worthy + discipline pursuit compared to what I loved to do: idly let the ideas flow through my crayons organically and playfully with a sense of wonderment. My internal belief at some level was that doodling was a purely self-indulgent, whimsical waste of time.
Perhaps worst of all was the fact that I had all these beliefs in place which led to me being quite shy + quiet about my doodling. I had become ashamed of this natural inclination and gift of mine and as a result of this and many more things, I hid the creative, artistic, doodling side of myself away much of the world. I continued to doodle because it was natural to me. The damage was in the fact that I did not value this ability of mine; I saw it was a flaw that needed to be changed and fixed.
My deeply creative side started to appear in my conference attendance and class notes from the modalities I was studying. I was spilling over from creativity and the joyful delight of doodling. I was also very self-conscious of sharing my doodles with others.
My own work with the Clearing Process over 10 days helped me immensely. I was able to become very aware of the limiting beliefs I had taken on which prevented me from being powerfully seen + embodied in my gifts: doodling is just one of them.
As a testament to this work I am doing two things:
I am letting it all hang out, doodle-wise. I'm taking sharing to the next level!
During my training I made drawings that were well received by my fellow students + teachers. I have set up an online shop to make them accessible world-wide for clients, other Clearing coaches and members of the A Course In Miracles community to use and enjoy.
I am putting my training into motion.
I am weaving this modality into my hand analysis work with the intention of empowering others to release limiting beliefs that keep them from being the most powerful, genius, beautiful version of themselves.
I wonder who I will get the great honour of working with. I am excited because it will be so fun + rich. I am excited to see the transformative changes that will ripple out into people's lives. I am excited to see more joy, more pleasure, more possibility + best of all, more authenticity radiate into other people's lives.

I am so warmly delighted + thrilled.
I am so grateful to experience + have the ability to offer a tool that can help people embody this Marianne Williamson quote which is a guiding beacon for my own life.
In service with all of my joy,
