Favorite Poem – Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge

My favorite poem inspires me and feels like deep knowledge. Every time I read it, I think about how my viewpoint has changed since I thought I knew everything.

I like to muse about how I will view this same poem in a year, or two, or ten.

Yesterday I was clever,

So I wanted to change the world.

Today I am wise,

So I am changing myself.


Welcome, if you’re visiting from the LASR Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge.

Moments With Marni & How Good Can It Get – LOA Manifesting On 4-4

Every day is special if you make it that way. Today is more so, because it is the 4th day, of the 4th month, of a 4 year. What that means in terms of numerology is that it is full of 4 energy – which we use to build what we want through discipline and work.

What do you want to bring into your life that you’re willing to work for? Now, with that in mind, watch these two videos about manifesting. Remember to keep it easy, effortless, joyful, graceful, in the highest good of all, and harming no one.



These two ladies have been inspiring me for a long time and it is a pleasure to share their videos with you.


Peace and love,



Destiny poem videos are coming soon. Do you know your destiny number?


Note that if you are seeing this post on a mobile device, use the desktop setting so the calculations below line up in a way that makes sense.

Here’s how you find out what your destiny number is:

Find the number equivalent for each letter of your full name as it appears on your birth certificate, using this letter/number grid. I’m using a Pythagorean grid.

Our example is going to be a woman I greatly admire –
Maya Angelou. Her name at birth: Marguerite Annie Johnson
M   a    r    g    u    e    r    i     t     e      A   n    n    i     e        J    o    h    n   s    o    n
4 + 1 + 9 + 7 +3 + 5 + 9 + 9 + 2 + 5      1 + 5 + 5 + 9 + 5       1 + 6 + 8 + 5 +1+ 6 + 5
                         =                                              =                                     =
                         54                                           25                                   32
                        5+4                                         2+5                                 3+2
                          =                                              =                                    =
                           9                                            7                                     5
                           9  +                                         7  +                                5 =   21
                                                                     2 + 1 = 3
Maya Angelou is a destiny number 3, a creative, self-expressive destiny she fulfilled despite any setbacks she faced.

Before We Are Masters – Reiki II Refresher

Greetings. Blessings. Joy! Today I feel amazing, not because I have zero problems, but because I just do. That’s a gift that Reiki gives. Peace in the face of anything life brings.

Onto the Reiki II refresher. I think it’s important to review Level I and Level II concepts from time to time. After all, you want to give Reiki lots of chances to master you!

Let’s review how to do a distant Reiki send, with the help of this cute little dog.

Distant Reiki Refresher

Sending Reiki to an animal, situation or a person all have the same steps.

Questions? Please ask.

If you would like for me to send distant Reiki to you, please let me know. It’s my pleasure to help!


Reiki Master Teachers and Level II or III students, check out the brand new Reiki III (ART) Manual from The Reiki Cafe! Let me know if you purchase a copy so I can send you a special launch bag while I still have a few! Available for Kindle and in paperback.


As always, thank you for the time we spend together!
