I began to struggle with depression twelve years ago after the birth of my first child. It was controlled through medication and counseling, and I never did get truly suicidal. Then a couple of years ago, I went down again. But this time, medication just made me sick, due to the fact that my energetic system is SO much more sensitive now, and the depression was FAR worse, to the point where I wanted to kill myself all day every day.

I have a degree in psychology, specializing in depression, two years' graduate training in counseling, and ten years of work experience in mental health, working with severely clinically depressed (often dual-diagnosis) patients. So I knew the psychological side of what was happening to me. That didn't help, though. I had also left all that to become a Reiki Master and intuitive counselor and so I researched and learned the spiritual side of what was happening to me. That didn't help enough either, to my great disappointment. (Hah! Disappointment?? I used to visualize ways to die all day long.)

As I've shared with you before, part of my new direction for my right work is a growing passion and knowledge base in holistic living.  I am beginning work toward my M.S. in Holistic Nutrition next week, and I have created a new announcement-only list to share information on holistic living. 


This newsletter exists as a way for me to share information on making the transition to a more holistic way of life, including making the shift to real, whole, organic food, medicinal plants, drug-free healing, natural personal care and cleaning products, natural fiber clothing, sustainable building materials, natural healing substances, objects, and techniques, and anything else that is involved in learning to live in harmony with Earth and our fellow human beings.

I am also creating a new website that will focus on those topics, as well as the expansion of my practice into Holistic Health Consultant.

I would like to extend a personal invitation to all of you to join my new list, which will also feature any updates about my spiritual offerings.  The DharmaWork site will stay up, too, but the new site will have as its focus Holistic Living, rather than just the Spirituality that has been Dharma Work's focus for these years.

Thank you all so much for your support of my work.  I hope you enjoy and can find value in this expansion of it.  :-)

Love in the Highest,

NOW Is The Time
by Satina Scott
September 19, 2008

I was awakened at 5:30am on September 19, 2008 with another message from Spirit that I feel compelled to share with as many as feel drawn to listen.  As always, please use your own discernment and take only what serves.

Read the message...Collapse )

Wow, what a month.  I had no idea it was gonna suck so bad.  I mean, it had some great things about it and some really NOT so great things about it, so I guess...it was just...intense.  Hah.  Not so great was how everything we grabbed at to bring in more money fell through within DAYS and we had things shut off and a pretty empty fridge and cupboards.  Great was how everyone in the family came to visit and see our wonderful new home (and bought us food while they were here).  Not so great was the ascension symptoms WORSE than they've been in YEARS...fatigue, aches, dizziness, HUNGER...nausea...insomnia...and moodiness like I haven't had to deal with in such a long time...  Great was how we were taken care of every single time, even when we'd kinda figured that this time we wouldn't be.

Today, at least for us, the sun broke through the freaky clouds.  We got money, we got some emotional stability, and we felt a HUGE push from the Universe that is going to put us on our paths to Right Work and thus True Soul Service.  We are once again able to feel totally supported (AHHHHHHHHH....) and to be really excited about the fabulous potentials we've been trying to hang onto through this dark passage.  The Light is once again REAL to us, not just in belief, but it's TOUCHABLE once more.

It is my DEEP and sincere hope that others are feeling this same breakthrough energy.  I'm sending what it feels like over the grid to anyone who needs to tap in.

God Bless,

Okay, so I listened to a WONDERFUL training by THG's founder, Annette Pelliccio (featured in the little vid on my care2 site) that she calls "Goal-Setting Plus." It's based on work by John Kalench. Now, normally I'm sick and tired of the word 'goal', having spent YEARS in the self-development industry. Plus, I consider it a rather masculine, dry word and feel more attuned to more feminine language such as 'intentions'.

But the training was WONDERFUL, like I said, and today I felt very inspired to sit down and write out my results. After I was done, I felt like I got so much out of it that I wanted some way to share it with others, both so that maybe I can get some encouragement and support along the way, and so that others can possibly use the same program to help them get clarity on their own paths.

So, without further ado, here's what I came up with:

My life, my indentity, and my business have all been undergoing tremendous transformation over the past week.  Maybe the same has been happening to you.  Part of the results of my own transformation is that I've stopped doing my spiritual counseling and have become an Independent Garden Consultant with The Happy Gardener, a company that is dedicated to selling earth-friendly organic gardening supplies and lawn care products.  And I've planted my own organic container garden.  :-)  I've also created a new blog to share insights, tips, information, and other goodies related to natural living, including natural healing, whole foods, organic gardening, natural personal care products and cleaning products, and other earth-friendly products and services.  I invite anyone who is also feeling the call to delve into this more deeply to join me there:  http://earthharmony.livejournal.com

In my previous post about our new house, I shared about how the one thing I didn't get that I asked for was an ocean view.  I'm actually going to be four miles east of the ocean, on the river, instead, which is not anywhere I asked for.  But I felt perhaps Spirit had a reason.

Well...that reason may have just been revealed on Yahoo News ONE HOUR AGO:

(Just for reference, I live just south of Newport, so those quakes are about 125 miles southwest of ME!) 

GRANTS PASS, Ore. - Scientists listening to underwater microphones have detected an unusual swarm of earthquakes off central Oregon, something that often happens before a volcanic eruption — except there are no volcanoes in the area.

Scientists don't know exactly what the earthquakes mean, but they could be the result of molten rock rumbling away from the recognized earthquake faults off Oregon, said Robert Dziak, a geophysicist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Oregon State University.

There have been more than 600 quakes over the past 10 days in a basin 150 miles southwest of Newport. The biggest was magnitude 5.4, and two others were more than magnitude 5.0, OSU reported.

On the hydrophones, the quakes sound like low thunder and are unlike anything scientists have heard in 17 years of listening, Dziak said. Some of the quakes have also been detected by earthquake instruments on land.

The hydrophones are left over from a network the Navy used to listen for submarines during the Cold War. They routinely detect passing ships, earthquakes on the ocean bottom and whales calling to one another.

Scientists hope to send out an OSU research ship to take water samples, looking for evidence that sediment has been stirred up and chemicals that would indicate magma is moving up through the Juan de Fuca Plate, Dziak said.

The quakes have not followed the typical pattern of a major shock followed by a series of diminishing aftershocks, and few have been strong enough to be felt on shore.

The Ninefold Path

When I started my own spiritual awakening journey, Spirit blessed me with a step-by-step guideline to what exact areas of my life needed to be mastered in order to embrace my power, passion, and purpose.  I call this guideline The Ninefold Path to Living in Alignment, and I have found that it holds the answer to any question you could ask as you travel along your spiritual awakening path.

These are the steps as given to me by Spirit:

1. Surrender your will to Divine Will.

2. Forgive others.

3. Forgive yourself.

4. Embrace the disowned parts of yourself.

5. Look at life through Divine Eyes, taking the Highest view of everything, always.

6. Release anything that does not serve your True Self and Higher Purpose.

7. Listen to and live by your Higher Guidance.

8.  Walk with Spirit as your full partner in life and ASK for help.

9. Know that your words, SPOKEN and UNSPOKEN (thoughts) create reality. Master them.

Knowing these steps, and understanding and *living* them, are quite different things.  So I am offering a 9-week exploration of The Ninefold Path in the form of a private, discussion-based email list.  Anyone from anywhere in the world can participate, as long as you have email access.

We will spend one week on each step, so that you understand it thoroughly, and you will be able to ask questions and get powerful practical guidance on how to apply the steps to your own personal life and journey.  The class will be kept small so that everyone can get personal attention, and it will be a safe, sacred place where all can share, and support and encourage one another.

When:  The class will begin the first week of May, 2008.
Cost:  The cost of the class is $75, payable in advance by PayPal. 

Register:  To register, just email me at dharmaworker@yahoo.com and I will send you an invoice.  Upon receiving payment, I will send you a pre-approved invitation to join the closed list.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me!

Can you sew?  I can't.  I've tried, and I made a pretty nice purse, but I've yet to come out with a successful result when attempting the construction of even the simplest garment.  And trying stopped being fun a long time ago and I gave away my sewing machine, so it ain't gonna happen now.  ;-)  If you would like a phone session and you can sew, I'd love to trade a spiritual counseling session for a couple of pairs of simple palazzo pants made of a soft, natural fiber fabric.  Elastic waist, super wide straight legs.  Indigo colored, and maybe some kind of soft brown.  If you're interested, please email me at dharmaworker@yahoo.com.


Love in the Highest,

Something's Coming

Spirit doesn't speak the language of 'should'.  It doesn't guide us with fear.  It communicates through the medium of the heart, and its language is that of joy.

When Spirit tells us to prepare for something, it does so by making the preparation itself seem exciting, even fun.  When it's time, on our evolutionary path, to do something new, we develop a true zest for it.  A heartfelt, deep interest.  An excitement and passion that perhaps wasn't there before and makes no rational sense.  We aren't made to do it, or told to do it.  We just suddenly *want* to do it.  Or, if we've always wanted to do it, we suddenly *cannot wait* another minute to do it.
