All We Need is Love
March 12, 2011
READThings have been humming along for me. So how could that result in me weeping with hands pressed over my heart this morning? I was cranking along, getting more organized and productive. Not realizing I was at risk for becoming seduced again by the Gremlin of “Productivity=Purpose.” Not even noticing her whispering and hissing in my ear, “See, now you’re remembering how this works. Work, work, work, work, and more work...Click here to read more
Art Therapy
February 17, 2011
READTo begin the search for my long-lost authentic self, I primed the pump with immersion in a plethora of creative endeavors. I had no master plan. Only a vague recollection of feeling happy to be alive when I was making art as a child. Art is the language our souls still speak even when, especially when, our brains and mouths cannot form words to tell our story. Always, and in all ways, we tell what must be told....Click here to read more

Six Days of Love and Curiosity
February 14, 2011
READAs promised, below you will find the posts from the brief and tumultuous six-day lifespan of my beloved sister blog site, "Love and Curiosity—Gems for the Journey". Many thanks to the loyal fans who followed my musings there. While Gemmy has returned to the creative ether from whence she came, rest assured you will find lots of future Gems here...Click here to read more

Wherever You Go, There You Are
February 12, 2011
TREADhose who’ve been following this book from the beginning will notice that initially I published frequently—often more than once a week. But over time, my entries became more sporadic, concluding with me not publishing at all for over 10 weeks. What I discovered, when I took a hard look at my relationship to publishing was something Julia Cameron writes about with regularity. My EGO was getting in the way....Click here to read more
Baby, I'm Back!
January 14, 2011
READDuring the migration of my computer equipment to my wonderful new life coaching office, I lost access to all of the data stored on my 2TB data drive—a lifetime (57 years) of data. Absolutely no backups anywhere else. One of the keys to life is believing that there are really no problems or challenges, only opportunities. My current situation is no exception: opportunities abound…Click here to read more

Getting to Know You
October 26, 2010
READDuring my 80 pound weight loss last year, I received a profound insight from the Universal Intelligence, "Deborah, if you feed all of your senses in a balanced way, you are more likely to live a happy life. If you neglect to feed one or more of your senses, there’s a greater probability that one of the remaining one’s will try to fill the void and take over your life in an unhealthy way.”...Click here to read more

The Gift
October 24, 2010
READThe only hope for finding peace in this life–not comfort, but deep abiding peace–is to be insatiably, fearlessly curious about myself. Not just the attractive parts–my kindness, compassion, wisdom, generosity and humor...I need to be endlessly inquisitive about all of it, especially the unattractive parts–my insensitivity, impatience, obsession, bitterness, anger, anxiety and despair...Click here to read more

A Brief Message From Our Sponsor
October 22, 2010
READWhen it comes to Creativity, the best way to get our egos out of the way and relieve the pressure is to stop thinking of ourselves as the author or originator of anything.  We are merely the broadcast mechanism for messages and inspiration from the Universe.  Whatever our venue – poetry, tax returns, oil painting, consumer protection, architecture, legislature, art quilts, child rearing, carpentry, musical composition, congressional oversight, kindergarten teaching, marketing, singing - we don’t create anything in isolation. We are co-creators...Click here to read more

Who Ya Gonna Call?
October 21, 2010
READIf any of you are still harboring the illusion that those of us in the “helping professions” are able to help others because we are totally self-actualized, always have it all together, never get sad or angry or frustrated or confused, never sink into bottomless despair, then you need to reread my previous entries. I’m convinced that those of us in the helping professions can only help others to the extent we have grappled...Click here to read more

Authenticity is the Only Path
October 13, 2012
READI write this blog with an open heart not because I think I cannot be hurt–that no one may target me for cruelty. It is rather that I cannot let the possibility of pain stop me. I can no longer let the cruelty I’ve suffered–and will most certainly suffer again–keep me cowering and silent in the dark. I must live and speak from love with authenticity, for how can I hope to share that path with others if I don’t...Click here to read more

The C Word
October 12, 2010
READSo last Saturday morning, high on the thrill of having launched my Online Journal (aka Da Blog) on the spur of the moment with no exhaustive plan (not my norm), I decided my plan going forward would be to write a new installment every day. Now that’s more like the overachieving-pain-in-the-tukus Deborah my friends and family know and tolerate. Let’s take a wonderful, spontaneous event and turn it into an obligation...Click here to read more
 Silly Little Grasshopper, That Rowboat's for You!
October 9, 2010
READYes, this is my second blog in two hours. All the zeal of the newly converted. But I promise it will be worth your time.First, a word about my history with blogs. I don’t do blogs. Don’t host them, contribute to them, read them–heck, I don’t even subscribe. Forgive my arrogance (this Little Grasshopper has been humbled yet again by Life), but I saw bloggers as two types of people...Click here to read more

October 9, 2010

Reiki Student Testimonials

“I gained so much from Deborah’s power-packed Reiki course. The materials were well thought out and easy to follow. Deborah’s approach made the learning, attunement and practice flow naturally.”

When you fall in love with yourself,
everything else finally falls into place,
with beauty, power, and grace.
When you release the illusion of fear
and embrace the truth of love,
you will know in each moment
who you are and Whose you are.
That, my dear friends,
is more than enough.
It is everything.
―Deborah Jane Wells
