Shifts in Life, Being Flexible

IMG_6569Why does stuff happen?  Some days, tough shifts happen all day long day. Here’s one: My dog has tremors and shakes and has to go to ER and I am told to consider “compassionate euthanasia”.  Boyfriend quits job. A close friend’s daughter goes into early labor alone at the hospital.  Sister runs to her aid only to have the car break down. Boyfriend offers, waiting by side of the road for AAA, with no A/C , 87 degrees and youngest sister (11) pitches a fit about not going to hospital.  The printer jams and a tooth comes out. All in a day.

So there’s the old adage “Go with the Flow” but this is more like the “Jumping out of the airplane with no parachute-it’ll be over fast”  adage. Then you can get back into the stream of life.  The challenge is to stay in your “center” despite the shifts in your world. Hard? You betcha! But considering the alternative of NOT going with the shifts and allowing more resistance in, just chalk it up to a  “bad mojo”  day and taking a “things are working out and improving” attitude  that  shifts us into a more positive outcome.

Truly, the Pollyanna type person, of whom I am one, may get clobbered by the person in the middle of their muck. So, we can just offer a suggestion of the light at the end of the tunnel and then let it go,  knowing the shifts fall where they may (teehee). After all, shifts happen (another teehee).   “Til the next time, Rosie

Going with the Flow

As I was enjoying my lap swims, I was thinking about the connection of swimming to life’s rhythms, ebbing and flowing as the water ebbs and flows with my swim strokes.swimming  You see, as we swim we MUST provide some resistance in order to move forward. But, it has to be just the right amount of resistance. Otherwise we would be splashing all about.  On the same note, we have to give in and go with the flow of the water. We allow the buoyancy of the water to hold us, just like our energy is held by source energy.

As we move with the flow of our lives, things simply go better when we meditate, relax, and chill at some point every day. Everything flows better. We seem to be in sync with the daily rhythms of life. Likewise, as we stay connected to our Source,NO MATTER WHAT, we remain happy. We are feeling supported and loved and able to tackle any problem or concern we have.  We REALIZE that it is simply part of the resistance that will help bring clarity to us.

Once we learn rhythmic breathing, we are in a simple breathing pattern that allows us to move forward without struggle.  We have to move our arms and cup our hands to provide forward movement, or resistance in the water. The water holds us, if we relax and let it carry our weight.  Pushing against it may cause us to be in the struggle too long and fall into the fear that we may lose our support.

And such is life.  That which we push against becomes grander in our life, causing more struggle.  So it is best to roll with things when you get stuck, go with the flow, let the universe hold you in its palm and enjoy the learnings. ‘Til the next time-Rosie

How to get Grounded in 30 Seconds

Cute Coupes Feet On A BeachWow! Can you ground yourself that fast?  Is this really possible?  Well, yes, BUT you DO have to follow some very basic steps to being grounded AND shift your focus.  You see, being grounded is really about setting an intention and finding a focus. Once you set yourself up for it, grounding happens even in 10 seconds, but I did not think you would believe me so I suggested 30!

Step 1 . “Just Breathe” as the song goes by Faith Hill, BUT it IS a bit different.  You want to breathe with lungs and down through your diaphragm s and take LONG breaths, inhaling and exhaling to the count of 4 in, 4 out .  LISTEN to yourself breathe.  FOCUS on the breathing in and the breathing out-nothing else!

Step 2. Allow your thoughts to hook onto imaginary puffy white clouds passing over your head.  If I tell you NOT to think, it would be virtually impossible because thought is constant.  BUT you can shift your thoughts to a lesser focus (focusing on breath) and allow the freedom from this lack of focus be your predominant vibration.

Step 3.  Imagine  a white light of energy starting at your head and slowly moving through your body, connecting with your spinal column and moving down to your feet through your nervous system. Feel your body tingle as the energy moves through your system.

NOW it has been about ten minutes and you  feel SO MUCH BETTER!  Take a HUGE deep breath and focus on the moment.  Let out your breath and start the next moment with intention for your next step in your day.

New Beginnings for Spring

Reach for new beginnings in your life

Reach for new beginnings in your life

New beginnings! It is Springtime and we all naturally look at the newness of life.   We see the changes around us, the beginnings of flora and fauna, the emergence  of new animals as ” love ” is in the air.  We look within and find the excitement of starting a relationship anew or a new job or a new way of looking at the job we are doing.

There are  many ways to approach new beginnings that do not involve a move or a new career, but rather a look inside and within to move to new heights of awareness.  For indeed, we are spiritual beings experiencing a physical life on Earth and we are able to create something fresh through our thoughts, feelings and then paying attention ( or not) and allowing in.

So, what are your beginnings?  We could all look at our roots, but then we could also look at an event that brought about spiritual consciousness.  I suggest that the spiritual beginnings are what we are all about and that the manifestations of your new beginnings will come through your own internal connection with eternal energy.

How? Through meditation, reflection, acknowledging positive aspects of a person or situation daily, looking at nature and finding the beauty of the sprouting buds and warmth of the sunshine; having fun and focusing all that is joyous rather than all that brings you down.  Sometimes things do not work out like we think they will.  What do we say? Ah, how this new beginning transformed  is most interesting.  Thanks for the opportunity to look at it with new eyes.  That’s it.  Leave it alone and do not dwell further as your attention to the rough spots will hold you there.

May you enjoy your new beginnings and allow them to sprout into your true desires. ‘Til the next time-Rosie

Busy, Busy, Busy

We are busy people. We talk a lot and we talk fast. We work hard and long hours . We  burn the candle at both ends. We fit our friends into our busy lives. We wake up earlier to exercise or add time on to our already long days.  We are busy. We are moving from one class to another. Then we teach our children how to be busy.  They have play groups and  soccer and ballet and T-ball and ice hockey.  They are Brownies and Boy Scouts and IMG_2739Debate Masters and Skaters. They dance and are in performances and get iPhones and iPads. Then we all get relief from our  lives by visiting our computers and cell phones and web sites and ichat and Twitter and Face Book. We are busy. Time out! Whew! Breathe.  Yes, breathe.

Allow yourself the time you need to simply be quiet.  Give yourself the gift of going within, Flotations with med Screen Shotfor 20 minutes or so. Share it with your kids.  Sit by a tree. Stay inside and sit in a favorite chair, away from the noise and commotion.    Let your “busy” go.  Share the concept with your friends.  Take time with your children to relax together.  Try it with your significant other, your love, your partner, your spouse.  OR simply be alone with your own thoughts to experience peace. Laugh and look for the good.  Enjoy the moment, the minutes, the hour. Have fun with your inner work. Visit “Flotations with Meditation” CD for a 24 minute meditation up the chakras with myself and my son Matt on guitar. Give it a try-folks like it!

Love, Love, Love

heartIt’s that time of year, the time of love, the time where we take a moment to extend an act of appreciation to our loved ones.  I think it is actually quite terrific to be on the giving and the receiving end of Valentine’s. It is really fun for me and we keep it low-key in my world so no one feels any guilt or anxiety about over-the-top giving or receiving. BUT I extend the invitation to you to GIVE to YOURSELF.  One of the first things we learn in Healing Touch is that we have to be aware of your own self-care.
buffalo-healing-therapiesI recommend that you look at yourself and give YOU what YOU LOVE! Like…a massage? A Healing Treatment? A friend lunch or dinner? Popcorn and a movie? A walk outside? A nail treatment? A cookie? A great book? A glass of wine or beer? A meditative moment? Dry brush your body (towards your heart)? Spiritual books? Meditative Music? A LONG bath?  Lovely oils or lotions? Go for a run? Work out? Laugh? Pet your pets? Pick your fav’s on Spotify or Pandora? Pick fun band to listen to? Go to a gallery? Go to a show? Look at cars?  The important thing is that YOU VALUE YOU, that you take moment to love yourself!

You see, if we take some time for ourselves to relax and unwind ALL the folks in our world of school, work, family and friends benefit BECAUSE we come away with a much more grounded and centered view of our place in the world.  We are, plainly, much happier.  For indeed, happiness is really about our own inner being and giving ourselves the attention we need, the LOVE we need and the ACCEPTANCE we crave in order to be the creative beautiful geniuses that we all are.

So, readers, LOVE yourselves on this Valentine’s Day and every day as you walk this journey through life. ‘Til the next time-Rosie.

New Year, New You

Here we are, 2016! Yeah! Well, now that resolutions have made their way into our thought patterns, let us look at our own new spiritual directions for the year. What does 2016 hold  for you? Take inventory, if you don’t know where to start.

Let’s look at the most important aspects of spirituality…YOU! The ability to go within and quietly be in touch with your own inner being is SO important to becoming the NEW YOU!   Deepak Chopra in his book Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire says “meditation is THE KEY to the SPONTANEOUS  fulfillment of your heart’s desire”.  “Well, if it were that easy, why aren’t we all doing it?” (to quote Joey from my book: I AM Within).  It does take effort and a value of self (Happiness Now, Holden) to look at ourselves with new eyes and value meditation as that key to unlock our own door towards spiritual growth.

Let’s look at the aspect of Healing with new eyes.  Wayne Dyer talks about the importance of setting an intention in everyday life. (Power of Intention, Dyer). Ah yes, it is so critical in healing as well.  Perhaps you can look at healing  with new eyes as you set an intention of helping or healing.  It can be simple and general : balance, calm, peace. Or more specific: remove pain, relieve headache.  Whatever your intention, set it clearly and breathe deeply as you bring new healing energy into your  aura. (I AM Healer)

Perhaps you are wondering about spirituality and your belief system and you are evaluating how you look at the  energies of the world. Well, yes, it is a good idea to look at old and new potential beliefs and see where you stand. What FEELS right to you? For it is in FEELING the POTENTIAL that we CREATE  CHANGE, or healing, or deeper meaning, or a stronger connection to our new inner self .

So I leave you with that thought and encourage you to take a peak into your own world of quiet and see what new ideas pop in and check in how you feel about it.

Travel and Spirituality

People have often made the comment to me, “Wait til you see Ireland. It is the essence of spirituality!” So, of course as I was about to embark on my carefully planned and much awaited trip, I had the thought of spirituality in my mind, wondering about the impact the Emerald Isle may have on my own light being.

It did not disappoint.  I suppose if you go anywhere, or even if you are in your own backyard as Dorothy Gale in The Wizard of Oz reminds us, it is your perspective that guides the way.Yet, when faced with the grandeur of the land as in the Giant’s Cause way…

Giant's Causeway



or Cliff’s of Mohr…



Ireland's Cliffs of Mohr 10/2015

Ireland’s Cliffs of Mohr 10/201



One can only be spiritually guided by the breathtaking view of our lovely planet. And it was Ireland, the land of my Mom’s family, both sides having arrived during the potato famine.There was another lovely place that actually DID call to me.   It was called Adare and was the place where more weddings take place in Ireland that any other. As I entered a small church (there are many churches in Ireland), I felt the familiar chills on my arms and up and down my spine, that I feel when something energetic is happening.

I looked around and was privy to a mass being held, but it was not the praying, but the essence of the area that was imposing itself on me. Adare church Ahhhh…spirituality… that connection with All That Is, Source Energy and ME.  It was though I had been there before. Could it be my upbringing? Maybe.  Was it my ancestors nudging me? Possibly.  Was it something in my blood? Perhaps.  I guess we never know the true answer other than ,”Wow, that was amazing,” and “Oh I felt so tingly!”

I AM Rainbow by Roseanne D'Erasmo Script - Book introducing families, children, and newcomers to energy healing concepts and chakaras



In my book, I AM a Rainbow, I worked with my illustrator, Lowell Hildebrandt, to create watercolor images of beautiful scenes of our earth and I related it all to our chakras.  I can only say that the experience in Ireland added so much to my reservoir of what can be created, and it was in my actual experience-aren’t I lucky.  So, Til the next time, counting my many blessings, Rosie

Healings at any Age

I recently had healings with a 72 year old and 78 year old. I was asked , “How old is too old any how young can a person be?”  What? There are no age limits. Truly! People come from all walks of life and all ages to experience Healing Touch or Reiki treatments.  I have so much fun sharing energy healings with all these folks, young and old.  I have treated babies in utero, newborns and young children up to octogenarians and every decade in IMG_2893between.

Let me share some experiences.  Just the other day, a “nearly 80” woman came for help with rheumatoid arthritis. She was open to the idea of energy healings and had tried numerous medications and vitamins.  She was slim and had a vibrant personality.  After receiving the treatment she reported a feeling of relaxation and well-being as did my other 72 year old who came with complaints of “simply not feeling like himself or needing balance”.  He said, “Well THAT was really so very nice!” after the treatment.  Both made a commitment to meditate and make healthy eating choices as well as consider some great books for self care.

In honor of Wayne Dyer, I recommend “The Power of Intention” and I have received terrific feedback from my clients on “Happiness Now“by Robert Holden.  I also stand by Ruiz’s “Four Agreements” and Jon Kabat Zinn’s “Wherever You Go There You Are” as terrific books to start you on your inward search.

IMG_3038 So let’s look at the youth. Babies kick in delight during healings, smiling and cooing throughout. My little four year old client expressed the colors in his aura as balloons of light-so lovely.  The teens bring me their confusion and angst and leave with balance and clarity.  And folks, isn’t it really all about how to learn to live in balance in this world we create? Food for thought.

So, enjoy your day, and consider a visit to your local Healing Touch Certified Practitioner. It’s a beautiful thing!

Energy Balancing with Four Year Old

Can we help balance the energy of children? Absolutely! Today I had the pleasure of helping a four year old learn about balancing and centering. He was amazing. We discussed breath first and he practiced making a buddha belly as he breathed in and he pushed his belly back towards his spine as he breathed out.

The children and teacher walk away with their chakras glowing.

The children and teacher walk away with their chakras glowing.

We opened up I AM a Rainbow
and referred to the picture with all the chakras and I AM Within, referring to the picture of the light within.  Then we went up to the healing table.  I assessed his chakras and auric layers as we moved into energy balancing.

After we both focused on white light,  we worked with the different chakras and their corresponding colors and he focused on breath.  I asked him what he saw that was different colors and he said,”Balloons” . “How perfect!”  I thought.

Imagining balloons of the many colors of the chakras.

As we traveled up the chakras, bringing color and clearing for balancing, this lovely child shared the balloons he was seeing  in his imagination.  He even brought in the people who were invited to carry the balloons in a park  setting.   This child completely guided me as together we brought balance to his aura, giving him a tool to help when life becomes challenging or fearful (which happens to our children, unfortunately).  Gladly, we have the tools to help.
