Star light, star bright

Last prompt! “How do you feel when you look at the stars?”

In awe. Every time.

And one summer, shock. I distinctly saw a light coming over the mountains, which then turned into multiple lights that all flew apart and then disappeared. No kidding. Another time I saw a light heading east, stop on a dime, and reverse direction before disappearing, too. Not a big loop like a plane or helicopter would make, I’m talking an immediate reverse. I still look for things like that, since we live in a state known for sightings of unexplained flying objects.

But the stars…oh, the stars. I love nothing more than sitting outside and night and staring up at them. There are more satellites, sadly. I love seeing Orion, even though I know that means I’m going to be cold for a handful of months, but what I really miss is the Milky Way. I know it can be seen, but not from my house. When I lived in New England, you could walk out the back door and there it was, big as anything you could imagine, and it made me feel very, very small, and part of something so much larger at the same time. It’s beautiful, and really beyond words.

Well, Bloganuary has been fun! Lots of new blogs to read, lots of new readers (thank you!), and while I know some of us kvetched at bit about the prompts, it’s very difficult to please everyone, and they did serve their purpose, right? Most of us wrote more than we had been, and that was the goal.

Be safe, be kind, and keep on writing!!

With hope and love,

ETA: I was reading another blog post, and was reminded of when I lived at the top of a mountain, and when we went outside at night, the stars were so close it felt like you could reach up and grab them! I can’t believe I forgot about that!

Changing the world

One person or animal at a time.

When I read the prompt for today, “How are you changing the world”, my first thought was that I’m not. I lead a quiet life, and there isn’t anything I do that could possibly fit that.

And then I saw this feedback from a session I did last night:

It struck me that I may not be changing the world, but I am changing things for individual people or animals. I had on my website feedback from sessions over the years like, “I am gobsmacked. He has really turned a corner. If he doesn’t have a setback, he’ll be nearly normal next week. I really thought I might have to put him down. Whatever you do, my friend, it is good works.” and “I swear we can give him meds and fuss over him and he doesn’t improve. You send him light and he’s better within 8 hours.” from Diane in the Midwest about her elderly horse.

Or Johanne in New Brunswick who wrote, “I had a great and powerful crying session. Felt my solar plexus burn with the surplus energy that was stuck there. Then: my second chakra. Woah. I felt it there. Very vulnerable, and yet powerful at the same time. Thank you so much!!” 

I love this; …you most certainly hold the gift of light … others have been sending and I have felt support and hugs but not the clearing and acceptance that washed over me from you.  You ARE a clear channel.”

This one was in-person for someone after a nasty motorcycle accident, and she was just blown away, as was I: It’s like taking the morphine and all those pain pills, but without the nasty side-effects! ” She also stated that she couldfeel her muscles moving!.

And from Stacey in England with cerebral palsy, Wish there was a way I could bathe in your healing energy.”  ”…as it makes me feel like I’ve been in a hydro-therapy pool.

This was from my mom, in New England, who is living with fibromyalgia, after a 30-minute distance session. I call her Scully when it comes to things like energy healing, so that tells you just how much this means to me.

Well, you know I don’t really believe in all this stuff, but when I woke up today, I felt lighter. Also my knee pain did not go away, but it is different and not as much, and walking is easier. All I can say is ooeeooee and keep on doing what you’re doing, cause even if I don’t believe, it still works anyway. I feel very different than I have been over the past month or so. My muscles are not tense. My head feels clearer, brain-fog-wise. I slept very well. I usually wake up a few times needing to move because something hurts. I guess you don’t need to believe or understand what’s happening for it to work.” 

So while, no, I’m not doing the big work like so many others are, I’m doing little work. And that suits me just fine.

With hope and love,

Pip 🌻✨

It’s all about the toonage, dude

What’s on my playlist, Bloganuary asks…


Yep, I may be the only human without a subscription to a music app, and my stereo needs new speaker wires, so nothing there, either.

I know, right??

And it does strike me as odd, because for the vast majority of my life, music was always, always on. My parents had an album collection that make a record store happy, we had tons of cassettes with music we’d recorded off the stereo; it was every. where. EVERY. I can hear a certain song and be taken back to a time and place (there’s a Bread song that does it every time)…music was the background of my life.

Until maybe a decade ago. Not sure what shifted, but I started to crave silence – could be that my guy is hard of hearing after years of construction work, so everything is at movie-theater level and I live in earplugs – and even when I’m online, I rarely listen to Pandora or YouTube. My ears have been overwhelmed, I guess. I’m going to the have sharpest hearing of all the 90-year olds when I get older, though! 😁

I still listen sometimes in the car, but mostly I’m music-free. I don’t even listen when I’m sending light anymore.

I think that makes me sad. I kind of miss the background of my life.

With hope and love,

Pip 🌻✨

BTW, if you are on Tumblr, I am, too! It’s a mix of the usual Tumblr stuff and trying to be a bit of an IG/Twitter mix, too. Check me out at EavesdownAbbey.com!

I just want to be alone…

Bloganuary asks, “where do you go for solitude”?, and my answer is easy; my study/office/she shed (hate that)/sanctuary.

We have an extra bedroom that I’ve turned into my hideaway. It’s where I do a lot of the lightwork, some of my laptop work, and a lot of reading. It’s on the south-east/south side of the house, and there’s lots of sunshine, which I really appreciate during the colder months. I get cold really, really easily.

I have Funko figurines, stuffed animals (that I seem to be buying a lot of lately), bookcases, a desk, walls covered with quotes, pictures, a painting by a friend in Canada, plants (that are growing a bit crazy)…all my comfort things.

My guy has his ‘man cave’ in the garage, and this is my spot to be alone.

Oh, and I have two strands of Christmas lights that I plug in every evening, even in the summer. They make me really happy.

With hope and love,

Pip 🌻✨

Picking one favorite quote

…is like picking one favorite book! Impossible!

Today’s Bloganuary prompt is just that, “what’s your favorite quote”, and so many come to mind. I was looking in an old planner for something just now, and came across this one, which is particularly apropos to me right now:

Don’t try harder, try different.

I have no idea who said or wrote it, but it really hit home today. I tend towards the beating-my-head-against-a-wall way of doing things, when what I really need is to to let go of the definition of insanity, “… doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results” and try for something different. Would seem easy, right? As a matter of fact, signing up for Bloganuary was a step in that different direction; I’m not great with consistency in things like this (as you can tell from the missed prompts), but I gave it a shot (thank you, Alice of Malham Magna for tweeting about it), but thought it couldn’t hurt to try. I’m so happy I did! It’s lovely to read all the posts, to see people reading mine…it’s a great community and I hope it continues after January ends.

So, for today, that’s my favorite quote. 😂

With hope and love,

Pip 🌻✨

Have you lost your taste/smell from COVID?

I ask because I want to offer 5 people 3 free sessions each.


Well, a family member contracted it over the weekend, immediately lost taste/smell, and I did 3 sessions on her in 3 days…and it’s back. Now there are varying reports about it coming back in a couple weeks or months or year or not at all…most are at least months.

This got me super excited and I want to see if I can help others! I’m curious if the newness of her case mattered, or if time doesn’t affect the healing, whether they come back fully or not, if one comes back but not the other…I want to experiment and see, and I need, obviously, people to experiment with!

If you have lost your taste/smell, or know someone who has (age doesn’t matter), shoot me a comment on this post. I’ll wait til Sunday night, take all the names (does not have to be your real name; I’ve sent light to “SmileyFred’s friend SnowShoeKicker” and Spirit knew exactly who was meant and the light was received), toss ’em in a bowl, and pull 5 names. We’ll go from there!

I’m SO excited to see what happens!!!

BTW, one of the recent Bloganuary prompts is “write about something mysterious” and I don’t think I could pick anything more mysterious than this!

With hope and love,

Pip 🌻✨

PS: I also helped someone with a sore throat and a positive test…the sore throat went away and the following tests were negative. Did the light do that? I wish I had definitive proof, but I don’t.

COVID, sending light, and books


I missed a couple of the Bloganuary prompts, mostly because I am, again, sending light to a family with COVID (yes, it should be capitalized), and that’s been taking up my mornings, which is when writing blog posts is a bit easier for me.

I love helping people with COVID, though I do wish fervently that I could heal them completely…that’s not in the cards, though. I’m the conduit for the healing light/energy, and how it helps is up to someone else. I love the feel of the energy flowing through my hands (and it’s always surprising how hot the stuffed animals I use as stand-ins get), and knowing that I am, in some way, helping to alleviate the symptoms.

A bit blurry due to my tremors

The prompt the other day asked what we are reading, and I was in the middle of Shadow of Night, the 2nd of the All Soul’s Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. I didn’t want it to end! I love all the history in that book, and while I really enjoy the characters in current times, the ones in the past were lovely. And Gallowglass, oh, Gallowglass! A word, btw, I looked up to see if it was a long-time family name, but it’s so much more!

As for the Lenormand book, I’ve been interested in that form of divination for a while, but I’m a bit of an annoying purist and didn’t want a book written by someone who was originally a tarot reader…the two are not alike at all. I found this book by Andy Boroveshengra, who comes from a long line of Lenormand readers, and while it’s not as pretty or popular as one by another author, I like it. It’s clear, he doesn’t give any tarot-similar keywords; there’s a very, very popular book out there and while reading the zillion ‘meanings’ of the cards in the book, I wondered if the author was actually trying to cover every divination form out there, just in case. It was overwhelming. Lenormand is meant to be straight to the point, tell-it-like-it-is fortunetelling.

I was reminding of the book and deck while listening to the Cardslingers Coast-to-Coast podcast on Castbox. They had a guest reader on, V, and she reads Lenormand. She also calls it The Dirty 36, which cracked me up; she likens it to Rizzo from Grease while tarot is more Sandy. Brilliant! Got me all fired up to dive back into it! Tarot sometimes is a bit too broad and encompassing for my brain, and while I love runes (my first divination tool), I know that one shouldn’t learn from the made-up stuff in Ralph Blum’s book (my first book that came with the rune set), and there are may rune books of questionable nature out there. I had a friend from Bavaria who spent his life studying all forms of the runes, and why he hasn’t written a book about it is beyond me. He taught a few classes, but I wasn’t in the position at the time to take them. I’ve long regretted that. Runes are another thing where you don’t ‘pull three and read them’…that’s tarot, again.

So anyway, that’s what’s going on and why my Bloganuary roll was busted. lol

With hope and love,

Pip 🌻✨

PS: Don’t forget that you can now purchase a set of three 30-minutes sessions for $75!

As the crow flies

Today’s Bloganuary prompt is ‘what superpower would you like to have?’

I’m sure that there’s no limit to what kinds of superpowers there are, but what immediately popped into my head was flying. I’d love to be able to morph into a bird, something like a crow or a hawk!

Photo by Nigam Machchhar on Pexels.com

Years ago I took a metaphysical class with a wonderful teacher, and in one class we did a guided meditation in which we imagined we became an animal of our choice. My head went straight to a hawk, and it was as if I became the hawk, in a tree, and then I was soaring into the air, over a forest and then a mountain range. Somewhere in the trip I heard the teacher’s voice calling, calling us back…and I didn’t want to return. It really felt like I was that hawk, and the feeling was glorious. Such freedom! And crystal-clear eyesight (I wear glasses). lol

I could have chosen a superpower such as the ability to actually fully and instantly heal someone, rather than simply helping them feel better, and I really do wish I had that ability…but my soul wants to fly.

With wonder and hope,

Pip 🌻🌟

Journal · palliative lightwork · social media


My week off Twitter ended today, and within minutes of catching up my anxiety skyrocketed. I try to mute certain words, follow uplifting people, but the politics and pandemic are still so important that those who focus almost exclusively on them are also in my feed.

I ran to Tumblr to look at pretty pictures.

Then, while sending light to a very sick dog, I was listening to Leonie Dawson’s podcast on Castbox, which got me thinking about lots of things, energy healing related and otherwise.

First off, I’m choosing Tumblr over Twitter as my primary social media hub. I’ll keep the Twitter account and post occasionally, but I’ve really come to appreciate Tumblr for it’s Twitter/Instagram/blogging combination, and I’m surprised almost daily by who has an active account there, such as NASA and too many more to name. You can either sign up for Tumblr, or bookmark my site, Eavesdown Abbey. After all these years, I went and purchased the domain name!

Second, and this one is great for all of you: I’m offering a package of three 30-minute sessions for $75.00. That’s $15 off a regular purchase of 3 individual sessions, and since, in most cases, more than one session is really helpful, this is my gift to you.

I look forward to seeing you, hopefully!, on Tumblr, and I especially look forward to helping shift your energies (or your pets’) so you feel better!

Much love,

Pip 🌻✨

An Ideal Day

April 25th, natch!

Date, not day, but having just watched Miss Congeniality again, there was no way that I could let that pass.

I almost didn’t do this prompt, but I’m on a roll, so here it is:

My ideal day is waking up, feeding the menagerie, having a cup of tea and writing in my journal. Then I send light for two or three clients, sitting outside if it’s warm enough, in my study if it’s not. Next is housework, read for a while, maybe do another session, fix dinner, watch some tube…read, and bed. A simple life and a simple day.

Easy-peasy. Making my living at home by shifting energy for others and helping them feel better, and going with the flow.

Much love,

Pip 🌻✨
