I’m really tired of hyped-up programs telling you how to build a website that cost you thousands. It just isn’t necessary. So I’m always on the lookout for people who do good honest work for way less than the norm.
I found Pamela Wilson a couple weeks ago, and I like her work a whole lot. She has an amazing knack for lining up very simple things to do that can revamp your website fast.
If you’ve been looking at your website and wondering how to make it pop more, I think you might like this.

• How to use specific simple items to pull your readers’ eyes into the words on your pages
• Do an easy copy and paste to build your email list or direct visitors to important pages on your site

No fluff, no blather, good stuff. See you there!
Even after 13 years of tapping, I still have more to do! Why? Because I’m finally surrendering completely to the Big Dream. I’ve held it aside, focusing on my coaching, radio and book/publishing work, because I was convinced I couldn’t make it soley as an artist.
Very deep, very old, old, old conditioning (but you know what we can do with THAT kind of stuff, don’t you! Hah!).
Funny how you can teach everyone ELSE to go for their dreams, and there’s one sitting right on your own shoulder screaming! Ah well. It’s right in my heart right now – no more screaming.
Although I know to use the same principles I’ve been teaching all this time for marketing my art work, I still find myself wondering how so-and-so the other artist got where she is now, how to find collectors and buyers, where to market – all the things I’ve taught you all for 13 years! Funny, no?
I’m telling you this because I believe that being vulnerable and honest with you might help you feel a little less frightened, doubtful and maybe even more empowered.
And also because you should know that just because I or any other teacher or guru or famous person have ‘gotten’ somewhere, they are not infallible, and are also subject at times to the same inner turmoil you are.
I’m creating some shorty tapping audios that are helping me zoom past my inner doubts (are there outer doubts too? LOL!), and will stick them on my site soon so you can get them, too, and tap along with me. In the kind-time, once again, thanks for sticking with me!
I’ve been really moved by your wonderful emails and FB comments since I told you I was retiring from coaching.
Didn’t know? Might want to read my little article about it HERE. Comments there are open – I’d love to hear from you there!
Thank you so very, very much – it really means a lot to me to hear, “I’m sticking with you; you’re inspiring to me; your work really helped me so much; your non-invasive, loving style has helped me build my own the same way….”
And yes – I’m still doing 1-1s. I’m not doing teleclasses or courses anymore BUT – I AM continuing with a few 1-1 sessions FOR NOW, because I’ve had so many requests, and to be able to take time out of my day to help you is an honor.
Please let me know if I can help you – just hit the gold contact button to the left to contact me and let me know what I can help you with. And no, I’m not charging previous higher rates – for now, just $125 for an hour.
I bet you know at least one person who’s fighting anger, depression, irritability, nightmares and unwanted memories.
Maybe a vet, or a public service person from any arm of the military, police, coast guard or fire department.
Maybe someone who’s been abused, gone through any kind of shock or accident, or loss of a spouse or child.
Maybe a woman who’s been raped, hit, degraded or made to think little of herself.
Do they seem like they’re living a happy, contented life?
I didn’t think so.
“OH DON’T WORRY ABOUT ME….”
Many people who have gone through traumatic experiences might seem OK on the surface, saying, “Oh I”m alright, don’t bother with me!”
But I guarantee you they really, really suffer when they’re alone and no one’s watching.
And of course, some can’t hold the anger or hurt in – hitting their spouses, children or even friends, striking out from the unrelenting, ceaseless, intense pain inside them. Even though they hate themselves later for striking out. Even though they do their best not to.
No one should have to go through that. NO one.
SHELL SHOCK, PTSD, TABOO
My dad had what they called shell shock after coming home from WWII. He’d been on a tiny little boat in the Pacific, shooting at mines in the water for two years.
Today they call it PTSD. They had no treatment for it at that time. There was no one to talk to, and it was silenced, thought of as shameful, taboo, unmanly.
I can only imagine how much pain he would not have had to suffer if he’d had the pain-releasing resources we have today like EFT and TBT (Emotional Freedom Techniques and Trauma Buster Technique, in case you don’t know about them).
NO MORE HOLDING BACK!
As far as I’m concerned, there isn’t any longer a single solitary excuse for >anyone< to suffer like that.
You KNOW what I’m going to say next, don’t you!?!
If you, or a loved one, or someone you know is suffering from the effects of trauma, shock, intense fear, untenable loss or an accident….
Please! Please! Get yourself or them to one of Trauma Expert Rehana Webster’s workshops, will you?
She flies all over the world to help people. So far this year she’ll be in:
• New Zealand in April – 3 day workshop & certification
• Bali in May in May – 7 day retreat & workshop & certification
• Bournemouth, UK in July – 3 day workshop & certification
• Australia in August – 3 day workshop & certification
If you think your trauma is un-fixable, I’m telling you right now, it is not. Rehana works with girls and women who have been gang raped, chased out of their homes, stoned and declared “kari” – set to die, ‘honor’ killed by family. And she’ll soon be working with a world reknowned doctor who helps women whose faces have been acid-burned by husbands, boyfriends and pimps.
Your trauma CAN be released, too.
HELP YOURSELF, HELP THEM
Please, help yourself and the ones you love. Send them to one of these workshops.
And if you’re an energy practitioner yourself, get to one, as well, because you’ll discover how you, too, can use TBT to help people you work with.
You’ll be amazed at how fast, permenent, easy, and even smooth using TBT is. And even fun, if that doesn’t sound too weird!
Go HERE now & choose the one nearest you.
“Oh, I WON’T NEED THAT!”
I never thought I’d need TBT in my coaching because I work with business people.
Silly me! Last week, a business man I was working with went into panic during one of our sessions, because he started thinking of … climbing a ladder!
After just 45 minutes of TBT, he was able to belly laugh about it – even though fear of heights had haunted him and skewed his life for over 30 years, and made him feel inadequate in his work, and less than a man for his wife and family.
He’d been filled with shame, avoiding anything and everything that had to do with triggering his fear of heights. Now he no longer has to do that, and the world has opened up to him.
WHAT ABOUT YOU???
What would open for you, your friend or clients if you all knew what to do to clear the trauma, shock and the nasty effects of trauma from your system?

This note is a bit different, today. I have an idea that you might be able to help with.
I’ve been increasingly concerned about the radiation emitted by the reactors at Fukushima. 300 tons of radioactive water is leaking into the ocean every day, and is moving inexorably towards the rest of the world.
Life as we know it will be gone sooner than we know if we allow this to continue. But no one seems to know what to do about it.
So we stop thinking and talking about it, as if it will maybe go away if we don’t give it any thought. I don’t think so!
A RADICAL ANSWER?
We are told that thoughts, emotions and sound affect matter.
We are told that each thing has a specific frequency of vibration.
So I wondered if we could find out what frequency the radiation coming off the reactors is, and chant a sound that would create interference patterns in the resonance of the radiation, thus neutralizing it.
HERE’S WHERE YOU COME IN
So maybe you – or someone you know – might know the answers to these questions:
• What is the frequency (frequencies?) of radiation, specifically the radiation leaking out of Fukushima.
• What is the difference between a note and pitch (I’m not schooled in music, and have a feeling this matters).
• What specific sound vibration(s) would work to neutralize the radiation?
PEOPLE ALREADY HAVE DONE THIS KIND OF WORK!
I thought of Dr. Emoto, who does the amazing healing work using phrases written on paper attached to vessels of water. The water’s crystalline structure changes according to the phrase.
Never heard of that? It’s incredible – check out
Tons of his fabulous water crystal pix:
Then I thought of the way Hans Jenny used sound to make loose sand on a metal plate move into specific geometric patterns.
You can see how thoughts and sounds affect physicality right before your eyes!
Why couldn’t a bunch of people get together and sing or chant or use a synthesizer or some musical instruments – or all of those – to make the specific sounds that would neutralize the reactor rods and the radiation in the water?
And why couldn’t that same thing be done to rejuvenate the water at Fukushima?
How cool would that be? Might take a bit of doing, but – so? We need to do SOMEthing, and ASAP.
And this way would sure beat sending guys in to change the reactor rods and getting exposed to the lethal radiation!
If it’s true it’s a holographic universe, it could even be done at a distance – even miles away!
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Are you willing to play if I find answers I think we can use?
I know it sounds crazy and la-la, but I also know in my heart that it can be done.
If you can help with ideas, I’d love to hear from you!
Lately I’ve been cruising Facebook a bunch. Probably too much. I get hooked by the posts on what’s happening out there in the world.
Many of them are really upsetting to me – reports of heinous things people do to each other, and what we, human kind – or rather, humans-not-so-kind – are doing to the planet.
But what upsets me the most is the multitude of people who believe there is nothing they can do about anything.
They whine, bitch and complain, but never offer any viable solutions to anything. Nor do they make any attempt to sign petitions or support the movements already in place that are directed towards resolving what these people are moaning about.
Those upsetting things just keep on keeping on, with people sitting on their butts, watching, complaining or being critical, but doing nothing.
Complaining is great – but only if you do it enough to fully see and understand what it is you really, really do NOT want in the world or in your life.
But then it’s time to ask yourself, “what would I prefer, instead? And what is at least one step I can take towards creating what I prefer?”
Because we are very, very definitely not helpless.
Even such a small thing as signing an online petition is helpful. I used to scoff and laugh, thinking online petitions were a farce. But in the past couple of years I have seen some mighty victories achieved because thousands of people were concerned enough to put their names on petitons about issues they cared about.
As long as we ONLY bitch moan and complain, nothing will get done to resolve any conflict.
But once we get off the poor-me story line, things can actually happen powerfully fast.
So I urge you to look at what you don’t like in the world, and pick one issue you feel strongly about. Decide what you’d rather see. And now start speaking up about it.
Start discussing it with your friends, your co-workers and acquaintances. Because most people are very aware of what’s going on, and feeling as helpless as you are. It takes courage to open a subject of discussion up and take a stand.
If you think about what we can lose in the next five years, it’s worth being brave.
My favorite unfavorite right now is the disaster at the nuclear power station in Fukushima, Japan. If those fuel rods go off, we’re looking at nuclear winter from a blast 14,000 times the one in Hiroshima in 1945. THAT is scary. And makes me feel very helpless.
However, I believe whatever we create we can fix or improve. We created this problem, we can improve the situation. But we need to speak about it and not sweep it under the rug the way it’s been over the last 2 years. We need to do it NOW.
If you see the petitions going around on social media about Fukushima, asking international governments to step up and put scientists and experts out there to help, please sign it. Pass it on. We really CAN make a strong, significant difference.
Take a stand for what you believe in.
Whether it’s fighting women being trafficked, raped or abused, plastic pollution in the ocean, wild mustangs being eradicated, animals being mistreated, GMO foods, Monsanto, organic gardens being ripped out by stupid city councils, coral reefs being destroyed – choose one thing, decide what you’d like to see, take a stand and speak up. And do it right NOW.
If you’d like to see what I speak up about, go here:
and remember I love you!
Over the past few weeks, many of you have written me saying you feel stuck right now. Yes. It’s the change of seasons, and if you understand such things, it’s also Mercury retrograde. You’re not alone.
Dealing with being stuck has been a very common theme in my life. I used to want to end my life, before I found EFT. That’s been gone for 12 years now, and I don’t miss it it a whit, I can tell you!
Over the years when I did feel like exiting the planet just to be rid of the despair I felt, I developed a few tried and true ways to deal with stuckness.
I want to share with you a couple of my tiny but powerful exercises that I know will work for you, too. I’ve used them a lot this summer as I struggled with intermittant illness and fatigue, and what a blessing they have been!
1. STRETCH A LITTLE
I really do mean a little, too.
• Get out of your chair
• Walk to the center of the room
• Stand with straight back and feet about shoulder-width apart
• Put your attention in the center of your belly
• Slowly reach to the ceiling as you breathe in
• Hold your hands above your head palms together
• Take a deep belly breath
• Slowly let your arms down as you breathe out
• Let them hang relaxed at your side
Repeat 4 more times.
(If you know yoga, do the Salutation to the Sun. If you know T’ai Ch, Chi Gung or some other martial art, do a few moves.)
Why stretch? Because when you feel stuck, your body is stuck energetically. You need to get the energy moving. This is one of the simplest ways to do it, even if you know no yoga at all.
When your energy gets moving, your blood gets moving and your brain gets more oxygen…and suddenly your thinking clears and ideas for new possibilities can emerge. And hey! Stuckness is a thing of the past.
2. WRITE, DO SOMETHING, WRITE
…..a. Write down your basic stuckness problem on a sheet of paper.
Do NOT type your stuckness problem on your computer or other device.
Why? Because I want your body to participate so your kinesthetic senses are involved.
…..b. Now write down what the perfect solution to your problem would be, whether or not you believe you can actually have it or make it happen. Write it down.
Go to a shelf, bookcase, closet, corner, drawer or any part of your home or office that needs a little clearing up or organizing.
Do NOT choose something that would be a huge all-day project! Just pick something that would take maybe 15 minutes max to organize.
• Straighten out your shoes – even if you only have 2 pairs.
• Rearrange your pens and pencils on your desk.
• Straighten out your stacks of printer paper.
• Refold ONE drawer of shirts.
• Clean out and refill the dog/cat bowls.
• Go out to your garden and choose ONE plant and cut off the deadheads on it.
• Or cut some flowers from it and put them in a vase.
Get the picture? LITTLE things to do, but that do not take up your entire day.
Why do these things? Because – once again – it gets you out of your chair and moving. Plus it gives you the added feeling that you accomplished something of value as you got unstuck.
Do NOT overdo it!
Please don’t make a project out of straightening or cleaning your entire house – if your energy has been stuck, you won’t have the energy to do all that! You’ll end up feeling more tired, more frustrated than when you started!
When you’re done, go to your piece of paper and write out THREE tiny things you can do that will propel you towards the positive result you wrote down at first in part b. And then DO them!
3. NAP TIME!
Don’t push yourself farther than your body can handle! If you feel like your brains have turned to mush and you see yourself running around like crazy, give yourself a break!
Take 5 or 15 lying on the couch, and allow yourself to breathe softly and deeply.
I say this to my body before I lie down for a nap where I want to snooze a bit: “please wake me up in (15, 30, or 45 minutes) refreshed and full or clarity and energy.” It works.
You’ll be amazed at what 15 minutes will give you – even if your kids are still running around and making noise. You don’t have to sleep – all you’re doing is allowing your body to rest.
I hope these tips have helped – you deserve clear thinking, unstuck energy and a rested body!
I received a note from someone today who said she felt torn between doing this and that and couldn’t make up her mind, and it was starting to make her feel crazy.
Can you relate? I sure can! It’s never a question of WHAT to do, it’s always a question of WHEN.
A few years ago in the hospital recovering from surgery, I felt pretty overwhelmed by pain and hallucinations from the drug they were giving me. I found that the only way out was to focus within. When I got out of the hospital, I decided to see how to use that little technique in regular daily life. And it works!
Each time you feel like you need to do this but your heart wants to do that…or…you better do this to make some money or do that to help your kids…or, fill in the blank _____ just do this:
Go within to your inner flame. It’s right behind your belly button. The Chinese call it your Dan Tien. It’s your seat of power. Think of it looking like a little match flame. Grow it until it fills your belly.
Tell it what you have to decide, and ask it what it wants to do. Then, get really quiet and listen. Usually it’s a question of ‘should-do’ stuff as opposed to ‘fun’ stuff, right?
1. Your inner flame might answer with something you think you ‘shouldn’t’ be doing right then. It’ll feel uncomfortable.
So now you ask another question. This time, ask your mind: if you ‘shouldn’t’ be doing the fun stuff, what ‘should’ you be doing?
Look carefully to see if what you ‘should’ be doing is something important that would support you in moving into more of your Dream or your success.
If it is, then do it. Get it done with. Or at least part of it – get it going, moving. That’ll give you a sense of accomplishment. Then go do the fun thing.
2. It might have answered that it wants you to do the fun thing because it would support you in doing what you ‘should’ be doing.
If so, do that fun thing. After that, go do the ‘should’ thing. Or at least get some movement on it.
See, sometimes the drudgery stuff – the got-to stuff, the “I should” stuff – must be done first to get it out of the way so you can do the fun stuff.
Other times, the fun stuff needs doing first in order to lift your spirits enough to be able to do the drudgery.
Either way, asking your inner wisdom will give you more of a sense of connection with your deepest self, and you’ll feel better about the decisions you make.
Hope that helps.
People go through their whole lives chasing everything in the material world, and they fail to discover the greatest treasure of all, which is within them.
Shut your eyes to the outside world. Direct your thoughts and words to the inside of you. The Master within you is the key to all the treasures in the world.

This is what I answered:
I sell pretty steadily from FineArtAmerica.com (FAA). But really, you asked about whether to have a website, or to use FB instead.
From experience, I say do both. And actually, do all three!
1. Have a solid portfolio site you can send people to to see the best examples of your work (and sell originals).
2. Have your FAA site to sell prints of your best work, so you can leverage your originals (get your own FAA account here).
3. Have FB and build your ‘fan’ base so you can send them to yr site and FAA.
FB is eternally screwing with code and deleting stuff – if you depend on them to maintain your business connection, you’re just asking for trouble, because your FB pages are NOT yours – they are FB’s. And as such, if they decide to shut you down, or if they change algorithms or anything else, you can’t do a damn thing about it.
So create YOUR own solid foundation with an attractive portfolio site – with purchase functions if you can sell your work online – and use FB to connect with ppl.
