6:30 - 9 PM
I have not shared in a while. I have been changing and growing and digging deep.  It's winter and that is what I do in the winter. I look inside and go deeper. 
Over the holidays I went to see a movie about the Hubble space telescope at the Smithsonian in DC.   Sitting in the presence of my entire family, 23 of us watched as the universe opened up in front of our 3-D eyes.  Together we soared through the solar system and found ourselves at the edge of the telescopes capability, the awe inspiring Orion Nebula, a star nursery.  
Located about 1,300 light years away this is the closest region of massive star formations to Earth, the M42 nebula is estimated to be 24 light years across. It has a mass of about 2000 times the mass of the Sun. It is estimated that  this nursery alone will birth over 1000 stars.
In any given galaxy there is approximately one star born a year. It is estimated that there are 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe, therefore there are about 100 billion stars born per year. That means that each day there are  275 million stars born. To keep things in balance there are approximately the same amount of stars dying each day as well.  Scripture equates the number of grains of sand to the number of stars.  Let that sink in.  While out there flying through the stars I had an amazing moment.  In space there is no suffering. In space there is only creation and light. 
Looking out a my kids in the large dark theater I thought about all the times I read the sweet little story, "Guess How Much I Love You?" by Sam McBratney. In the story we would read "I love you to the moon and back." Then we would play and try to really grasp the thought and feel how big our love was. "I love you more than all the blades of grass in the world." I would say. Then after looking up at me with big eyes they would say, "Well I love you more then all the water in the ocean." Then I would reply. "I love you more than every leaf on every tree in the whole wide world." Then with some hesitation they would say  "Well I Love you more than my blanky".  That always gave way for a moment.  The blanky love is big.  But no matter how hard we tried we could not find the perfect way of saying it. The vastness of our love was immeasurable.  Kisses and hugs would have to do.
On the flip side we can only see a star in the darkness of night. Try putting resentment, jealousy, greed and anger into the vastness of space, into the night sky.  You will find it gets lost.
Put the pain in you knee or the argument you had with your teenager into the vastness of space.  Does it hold up?  Put fear pain, disappointment and struggle into the night sky next to the brilliance of your love.  Can you feel how small it is. For me fear gets sucked into the dark.    It is simple our love is vast, our fear dense.  
In the book,  Proof of Heaven, A Neurosurgeons's Journey Into the Afterlife,  Dr. Eben Alexander, after having a near death experience states, "All the suffering in the entire history of man kind is but a grain of sand in the vastness of the universe."  I heard Dr. Alexander speak here in Baltimore and left thinking a lot about heaven, love and dying and how when we love someone and they cross we turn to the heavens to hold their spirit.   The grave, an urn, our memories.. these things are too small to hold a life. Once gone from the body their love for us and our love for them needs space.  It is big love! We often feel our hearts break at the thought of it trying to hold it.  Our love and our memory of them needs SPACE!  It needs to shine and it need to keep going and going.
So why a night of 1000 lights.
What if each of us were a star?  A galaxy of love.  
What if I called forth 1000 of us to meet and connect and hold the space of love.
What kind of fear would hold up?  What illness?  What limiting belief?  
What if we all came into one room and held the intention of love?
What if we all went out of that room and made sure that all the beautiful loving and conscious friends of light and love we knew were acknowledged for the vastness of their love?  
What would happen if we reclaimed our universe as a one in which fear, hate, doubt and suffering were simply one grain of sand in the vastness of 100 billion galaxies of love in our universe. 
That is what this night is about.
You are a point of light.
You were birthed in the amazing creation of the universe and with your birth this universe became more loving and expansive.
This night is about you and the love you can not contain.
This night is about joining all of us so that we can shine in a way that dispels fear and suffering.
Each of us is a light going around doing our best to dispel suffering and darkness but what if we took 1000 stars and pulled them into one orbit? Can you imagine the light it would cast in the universe? Can you imagine the light it would cast over Baltimore.  
That is the vision I had and have trusted to step into.  More will be revealed on the Night Of 1000 Lights.  For now I hope you feel it and just say yes.

Kauai Hawaii
July 2014
Advanced Reiki Trainings

Join me on the cliffs of Hawaii for four magical days and nights.  Enjoy beautiful meals on the lanai looking out over the ocean.

Swim in our private exquisite pool, soak up the Hawaiian sun and hike down to the beach to journal or or snorkel. 

While together we will experience Reiki attunements on the Napali Coast after sailing and snorkeling to the ancient and private shores. 

One day will be spent hiking to a waterfall for a picnic & advanced releasing techniques. 

On the last day we will spend time on Secret beach said to be a vortex to Lumeria.  Here we will establish our divine presence on this earth on sacred Hawaiian lava and experience a very powerful meditation to unearth your undeniable truths and timeless wisdom & beauty. 


I will be holding two sets of trainings;



July 19th - July 23rd

The First four day workshop will be geared toward those who wish to become Usui and Karuna Reiki Masters. Level I, II and Advanced Reiki is required to attend this workshop.

Stepping Through The Portal

July 23rd - July 27th

The Second four days will be a total surprise.  This exclusive retreat is for those are ready to move to the next level of spiritual mastery and wish to trust in their sacred path opening in a ways that lead to more joy and happiness. 


On your arrival home, a three week tele-series will be available to assist in your re-entry so your assimilation of this energy is graceful and profound.   


Due to the incredible beauty of the home I have secured for the training, I have had to create a double occupancy rate.  Many of you have expressed interest in bringing a partner or friend. Some of you have trained with each other and know each other well enough to share a room.  Please talk to the people you know and enjoy and see if you can find a roommate for the event. Sharing a room with someone is the perfect way to bring the cost down while traveling to other Islands as well. As you can see there is no comprising.  All the rooms are amazing!


Fee includes;

*Four nights in a private stunning ocean front estate 

*Meals prepared by our vegetarian chef

*A full day of sailing and snorkeling

*Meditation & Yoga daily on the cliffs of the beach 

*Advanced Training Workshops 

*Private session with Bonnie under the moon.  

*Free three week re-entry teleseries on your arrival      home.


This fee does not include air fare, stops on other islands or transfers.

If you are buzzing right now and really want this but feel scared try this.... Close your eyes and see yourself standing on the cliff outside the house above.  Look out over the Kauai ocean. Open you arms up wide and feel the soft breeze. Inhale the vast blue sea and the perfect air laced with plumeria and ginger flowers.  Feel the volcanic rock of Hawaii under your bare feet and then take it all up into your heart.  Let it come to you like Reiki does. Ask the Island of Kauai to help you create this trip so that you can experience the deep and ancient healing powers of this vortex.  Then say YES to yourself in a way you have never allowed before. Do this and really feel it and the rest will fall into place!
