Light-Filled – Spiritual Cookies

Red Petunia

Red Petunia

Today, I am sharing three of my spiritual cookies with you.

Infusion of Love: I recently spent time with some of my extended family. They had expressed an interest in seeing my art quilts and in experiencing my healing work. I asked them to bring old photos from my dad’s growing-up years. We spent a bit of time looking at photos and lots of time talking. I spread out many of my quilts in the living room, so people could look at them as little or as much as they wanted. And then we ended up in a circle (my preferred group “shape”), with one at a time receiving energy healing. They were interested, attentive, open to receiving, and open to learning. We did one-on-one healing within the group setting. We practiced partner exercises for grounding and for noticing how our energy follows our thoughts.  We even did group distance healing for a relative in another city. I don’t believe any of them had experienced energy healing before, but they were SO open, and willing to share deep parts of their lives in this circle.

I have never in my adult life felt safe showing up so fully amongst people who share my genes. I was seen, heard, believed, appreciated, and LOVED. There was some pretty amazing healing that happened in that circle, and I think the biggest beneficiary was ME. I am still integrating what I am choosing to call my “infusion of love.”

A great book: On a lighter note, I am currently enjoying the book I Thought My Father was God, and Other True Tales from NPR’s National Story Project. These stories vary in length from one paragraph to 2 ½ pages. And they are spectacular—funny, poignant, and interesting. I’m thinking this book would be a great Christmas gift.

And, last, a poem by St. Francis of Assisi, seen at a friend’s art show:

“Wring Out My Clothes”

Such love does
the sky now pour,
that whenever I stand in a field,
I have to wring out the light
when I get

Isn’t that lovely? Care to share spiritual cookies from your week?


  1. What a beautiful infusion of Love for you Janet. It’s not very often that we can say that a circle of people are so open to energy healing all at once if they were never exposed. You had a wonderful influence on them. 😉

    My spiritual cookies for this week have to do with our 27th Wedding Anniversary today… we decided to get away for the weekend and tonight we decided to go and watch a movie at the drive-in. It’s been close to 3 decades since we’ve done this. I didn’t even think drive-in movie theatres still existed. lol

  2. Janet, this is a touching account of the healing you experienced. I can relate to what you say about family. At times, we are scared and that makes us aloof and distant. I am going to take a look at my thoughts….Thanks for sharing your experience.
