Blog ~ Reflections

I recently shifted these blog posts over from another site (blog.energycontinuum.com) so they could reside here with the rest of my offerings. As a result of the shift, the dates for each older post show:  Feb 26, 2020.  I have noted in each piece the original date it was written and posted.
May you find something useful in my writing. Enjoy ~ Carla.

He Sees The Magic Now

He Sees The Magic Now

My dad died one month ago.  His death came less than a week after having a massive stroke, which left him in a state where he was unable to speak, and significantly impacted one side of his body.  I feel 100% at peace with where my dad’s soul is now - which is,...

Why Did I Create This Reflections Blog?

Why Did I Create This Reflections Blog?

(Originally posted July, 2018) I created this space to share my experiences, my realizations and a-ha moments, ponderings, and things that just make me laugh. I make no claim to have it all figured out and I'm very much a work in progress; but every day I make an...

Reflection On Anxiety

Reflection On Anxiety

(Originally posted Oct 19, 2019) Last night I had a bout of anxiety, something I haven’t experienced in a couple of years. It was the closest to an anxiety attack I’ve had in an even longer stretch of time. I share this with you not for sympathy, nor for any other...

To Err Is Human

To Err Is Human

(Originally posted - Sept 20, 2019) Hands-up, everyone who’s human!!   You can’t see it but my hand is up, even though doing so had me nearly knock the lampshade off the lamp I’m sitting under. Definitely human over here.  Here’s some more proof of my humanness: Last...

Where’s YOUR Focus?

Where’s YOUR Focus?

(Originally posted June 2, 2019) When I think back to different times in my life, I have the strongest memories about things I spent a lot of time thinking about - both at that time and since then.  Seems obvious, right? Over time a river bed becomes deeper and...

To Each Their Own… Reservoir Of Knowledge

To Each Their Own… Reservoir Of Knowledge

(Originally posted May 12, 2019) I have taken many courses, attended conferences and workshops, read (and also started-yet-not-quite-finished) lots of books, and had numerous conversations and sessions with others.  Most are related to energy work, healing,...

What Others Say Is About Them, Not You

What Others Say Is About Them, Not You

(Originally posted March 15, 2019) What people say about you is a reflection of them, not you.  Most of us have probably heard that saying before, and typically think of it in relation to a negative interaction.  Negative comments said by others can sometimes result...

On Procrastination

On Procrastination

(Originally posted Dec 16, 2018) I am procrastinating, big time.  In the first half-hour of sitting down to write this piece, I have:  checked my email, checked facebook, gone to get some chocolate from the fridge, sent a text message, talked to my partner, followed...

Focus On The Path Beyond The Pothole

Focus On The Path Beyond The Pothole

(Originally posted Dec 16, 2018) Everywhere I turn recently in books, documentaries, courses, conversations with friends, inspirational quotes on Facebook, etc.,  I have been seeing a variation of this message repeated:   focus on what you want, not what you don’t...

If You Always Do What You’ve Always Done…

If You Always Do What You’ve Always Done…

(Originally posted Oct 9, 2018) I was fortunate to have the opportunity to take part in an amazing yoga nidra instructor certification course over three weekends in the past four months. I felt some fear going into the course, during the first two of the three...

Fall In Love With Your Fears – Kyle Cease

Fall In Love With Your Fears – Kyle Cease

(Originally posted Oct 9, 2018) I love this guy’s perspective - Kyle Cease (picture above taken from his Facebook page).  I find his ideas super inspiring and motivating.  I'm in the middle of his book, I Hope I Screw This Up, which is great, and I recently stumbled...

Did I Say The Right Thing?

Did I Say The Right Thing?

(Originally posted Oct 8, 2018) I used to spend a lot of time worrying: was I doing the right thing in that moment, or what should I do or say next so that others would think I was acceptable.  I overanalyzed every situation, and agonized over how I thought I appeared...

Hidden Gems

Hidden Gems

(Originally posted Sept 10, 2018) I’m thinking about how I have learned the value of (and continue to work on) shifting my perspective - from that of lack, to that of gratitude for what I have and abundance; from focus on issues and ruminating on situations of the...

My Journey with Energy Healing

My Journey with Energy Healing

(Originally posted Aug 5, 2018) As an energy practitioner, I am often asked why I do this work, and why a session would be beneficial for someone. There are a myriad reasons why a person may seek a session and there are just as many amazing results to experience. ...

Additional comments on the above blog posts

On ‘To Each Their Own… Reservoir of Knowledge,’ commented by Kelly Vass, May 13, 2019:  Thank you Carla. I find your writing brings me back to the now. Always helpful and inspiring. I find you have a way of allowing grace in. 

On ‘Hidden Gems,’ commented by Helen, Oct 7, 2018:   Carla, I love this post. 🧡 It’s a beautiful reminder of how full and “enough” this present moment is. I find I’m totally lost (grasping) when focused on the past. I’m most often caught in panic & fear in anticipation of the future. This moment is where beauty and appreciation lives! It’s where I’m most happy! 😊

On ‘Joy or Disappointment: You Choose,’ commented by KGC, Aug 8, 2018:   Thank you — just the tonic I needed this evening, as I’m facing disappointment at things I’ve uncovered at work. They certainly aren’t going as expected, but it is an opportunity to make changes and improvements — and that feels so much better to focus on. You da’ best!!!
