Giving Thanks for the Tax Man

“I’ve put it off long enough. Time to face the taxes.” I thought about posting that on Facebook recently and then I changed my mind.
Why not turn tax time into an exercise in gratitude?
Its not always fun to go through the receipts and fill out the forms or prepare them for the tax accountant. But what if I remembered why I’d made those purchases and all the people who’s lives I had the privilege of touching because I live in a country that lets me have my own business – a business of my choosing.
What if I allowed the receipts for:
  • bottles to be a reminder of the wonderful people who have received the energies and aromas I place into them?
  • organic coconut, jojoba, and red raspberry seed oils remind me of the joy on a person’s face as they begin to feel the energies when they use the products for the first time? Read more

We are One in Light and In Love – We Are One

(Audio version available at …  )



Feel the power of the Unity within this Circle, at this moment.  Feel the Light move deep within your Hearts and feel your Hearts expand to form a Single Heart filled with Light, embracing each and every Heart within the Circle – coming into Oneness – and begin to awaken to the greater aspects of SELF.

Through the Oneness of the Single Heart; embrace your multidimensional Being, feel yourself open wider and wider until there are no barriers, there are no limitations, you are ONE WITH ALL THAT IS.

Within the ‘Heart of Oneness’ feel the immense power of Divine Love, feel your own contribution to this power of Divine Love, and again feel yourself open wider and wider.  See the ‘Heart of Oneness’ become the Heart of the Earth Planet, and feel the immense power of the Divine Love of the Earth itself.

Feel the swirl of energies flowing through the Heart as it beats, pulsing Light out into the Universe and embracing Light from the Universe, becoming a part of the Universal flow of energy.

Feel yourself totally a part of the whole.  Feel the beat of your Heart become the beat of the ‘Heart of Oneness’, and become the beat of the ‘Heart of the Earth’, and become the beat of the ‘Heart of the Universe’, and know with total certainty that Love is everything, that Light and dark are but the inflow and outflow of Love from the ‘Heart of Oneness’.

Know that each time your Heart beats, it sends out waves of Love, and those waves of Love will lift others upon the Planet up into a higher Dimensional frequency of Light, of Joy, of Harmony.

Imagine if you will, the Earth as a single beating Heart filled with Love, pulsing, radiating that Love to all corners of the Universe, calling out to all “WE are One, in Light and in Love, WE are One”, and as you imagine yourself within this Heart, there is no judgement of others, there is no comparisons with others, for you are all a part of the beat of this ‘Heart of Oneness’.

Allow yourselves NOW to feel the upliftment of Joy as the ‘Earth Heart’ beats within you, and know that YOU will create through Love,

A world that is filled with Love,

A world that breathes Peace and Harmony,

A world that is filled with Joy.

Feel the pulsing of energy flowing through every fibre of your Being.  Feel yourself uplifted.

We are all One.

We are all Love.

The Blame Game – Do You Participate?

diane mickelson(c) Diane Mickelson

Blaming sets up a situation in which it becomes difficult to move forward and puts resolution in the hands of others…. As we finally start understanding that the world outside of us is a reflection of the world inside of us, we finally begin to understand why we may feel confused about who is to blame for the problems in our lives.

If we had a difficult childhood . . .

we may wonder how we can take responsibility for that?  In our current relationships, the same questions arise….  We all know that blaming others is the opposite of taking responsibility, but we may not understand how to take responsibility for things that we don’t truly feel responsible for.  We may blame our parents for our low self- esteem, and we may blame our current partner for exacerbating it with their unconscious behavior.  This all seems to make sense.  After all, it is not our fault if our parents were irresponsible or unkind and we are certainly not to blame for our partner’s bad behavior….

Sooooooo, perhaps the problem lies with the activity of blaming itself. Whether we blame others or blame ourselves, there is something aggressive and unkind about it.  It sets up a situation in which iy becomes difficult to move forward under the burdensome feelings of shame and guilt that arise.  It also puts the resolution of our pain in the hands of someone other than us.  We cannot insist that someone else take responsibility for their actions; only they can make that choice when they are ready. In the meantime, if we want to move forward with our lives instead of waiting around for something that may or may not happen, we begin to see the “smartness” of taking the situation into our own hands.

We do this—- be forgiving our parents, even if they have not asked for our forgiveness, so that we can be free…. This does NOT have to be in person or a letter… just forgive them…  We end the abusive relationship with our partner, who may never admit to any wrong doing, because we are willing to take responsibility for how we are treated.  In short, we love ourselves as we want to be loved and create the life we know we deserve.  We leave the resolution of the wrongs omitted against us in the hands of the universe, releasing ourselves to live a life free of blame.

So the Blame game is:  a person feels guilty or uncomfortable about something.  That person finds a rationale why someone else is to blame.  That person blames another.  This person gains several benefits from this.  He/she is excused from what they have done (which means they can do it again).  They can play ‘poor me”.  They can also claim social capital over the other person because that person will owe them something in return for their apparent failure.  This game is driven by our need to explain ….  Also the first person gets to play persecutor and gets to have associated pleasant feelings of power….

The Blame games include:

  • Look what you made me do…..
  • If it wasn’t for you…….

All in all… watch out for the “Blame Game”….

We keep us stuck….

I personally do not like this game, do you?

But I must admit – I have played it…. not gonna anymore….

Here’s to “unstuckness”…..

Remembering: HerStory, MyStory, YourStory

AnnaMariah and the jewelsSM(c) AnnaMariah Nau

Stories connect us with each other and the depth of who we are. I’ve known since I was ten that I was meant to be a writer. Life took over and that ambition went on the backburner for a very long time. Then I did finally write a novel (actually two) but other circumstances came along and once again that effort went into the background of my life.

Last year I was at …

the annual fundraiser for Heal My Voice. This was also the launch of the first collaborative book effort, Fearless Voices; True Stories of Courageous Women. I was talking to Andrea Hylen, the founder, about her upcoming projects. When Andrea mentioned the focus was on visionary women I had tears in my eyes and Knew I needed to be part of it.

It was an awesome experience, so much wisdom, love and vision in this group of deeply visionary women. We spent a lot of time supporting each other, digging deep to find “the story” we had that wanted to be shared. There were a lot of tears and laughter along the way…and loads of love. So beautiful to be part of a project like this that was more than about just the story, it was the community, the field, we created in the process. We read our stories, edited back and forth and then finally it’s a book!


Although I was clear that I must be part of this book, but it wasn’t until the end of January during a Sanctuary with Tantra Maat that I really understood why.

During a morning meditation Tantra talked about our need to Re-Member ourselves – bringing back the parts of ourselves that have been lost along the way. My work both with crystals and gemstones and my writing is all about Re-membering, helping you to remember who you have been, are and will be. All the bits and pieces of what I do came together in that one word,

Re-memering. The Heal My Voice projects are all a process of Re-membering, each of us in our own way.

I initially started writing my novel after I had a vision of the entire history of earth from creation to current time. My story here and my upcoming novel is entitled “HerStory, MyStory, OurStory” – watch for notification, it’s soon to be published as a novel. My book is clearly about re-membering our lost stories. Some of our stories were simply lost, others were buried, distorted or destroyed and it’s time for us to bring them back and empower ourselves more fully through acknowledging the depths of our stories, our lives, our experiences.

I did an interview on Blog Talk Radio – Remembering HerStory, MyStory, YourStory with Andrea Hylen where I talk about the project, my book and also about the importance of knowing our stories. I conclude by leading you thru a process of reconnecting with an essential part of you who knows the next step, and the next as you move forward on your journey. If you struggle to understand your purpose or are trying to see the whole picture, please listen and see if maybe you’ll get a new perspective.

Here’s a song that beautifully portrays what it’s all about “Read All About It” by Emeli Sande

AnnaMariah creates beautiful, one of a kind pieces that transcend jewelry. As a gemstone empath she connects deeply to the energy of the stones. In her hands a simple necklace becomes a tool to balance and support your energy, as well as making you look fantastic!
