I left for New Orleans this morning, for my first road trip without my traveling buddy.  Many of you, know that my traveling buddy passed from this earth to her spiritual paradise in July of this year.  Some of you have emailed asking if I would take her cremated remains with me to NOLA, and no I will not.  She is residing along side my father in their home.  It feels strange getting ready for this trip without her.

My new series will be pitched to Paula Eykelhof with Harlequin/Mira, Jennifer Letwack with St Martin’s Press, Deb Werksman with Sourcebook, Inc., Tom Colgan with Penguin, Ed Deangelis and Lance Taubold with 13 Thirty Books, and Agent Rebecca Sherer with Jane Rotrosen Agency.

Hotel Monteleone standing tall since 1886.  Originally it held 64 rooms and 1903 thirty more were added.In 1908 when the US was in a financial panic, 300 rooms were added and the name changed from Commercial Hotel to Hotel Monteleone.  With the second generation of Monteleone’s to take control, another 200 rooms were added a year before the horrible crash of hotel-monteleone-new orleans1928.  It remained unchanged until 1954, when major foundation work was constructed.  The fifth generation added a swimming pool to the roof and other amenities in 1964.  This landmark is continues to be a jewel in the French quarter.

Hotel Monteleone, a historic New Orleans hotel, has long been a favorite haunt of distinguished Southern authors. Many of them immortalized the Grand Dame of the French Quarter in their works.  In June of 1999, due to Hotel Monteleone’s distinction among the literary elite, the hotel was designated an official literary landmark by the Friends of the Library Association.

The Plaza and Algonquin in New York are the only other hotels in the United States that share the honor as a designated official literary landmark by the Friends of the Library Association.

Over the past two years, I have recommended tapping along with Brad Yates, the EFT wizard,brad yates, eft wizard, the tapping solution, eft, tapwithbrad, daily.  Whether you need clarity, relief from depression, or just an amazing day, the youtube videos help clear mind clutter.  Recently, I had the opportunity to meet him in person and seized the opportunity.  I’m so glad I did.

My current situation at home produced paper clutter. During our evening of tapping together, I discovered it was related to not wanting to release the situation and hang on to it as if that would honor the dearly departed. Believe me, I am still working on clearing the paperwork and mind clutter this summer brought to me.  This week I focused on finishing up paper work for the estate, dealing with the division of the farm causes me to really drag my feet. Now, that I know the emotions attached to the clutter, I can laser beam my tapping sessions.  There is still a lot of paperwork to finish. 🙁

Getting back to the topic, Tapping with Brad Yates.  I met him at the historic Cincinnati Hilton.  An intimate group did a couple of hours of tapping on several different issues.  When tapping with others on issues you do not feel you have is called borrowing benefits.  It helps everyone on a whole. One attendee received a terminal diagnosis earlier in the day.  As a group, we tapped with Brad Yates and her.  This helped me realize the need to revise my book, EFT for Writers and seek a new publisher.  Out of print since 2008 (I think) and all rights have reverted to me.  How did tapping for someone’s emotion about a dreadful diagnosis bring forth a book revision?  I don’t know.  The book was an aspect that came up for me.  An aspect is often a piece of your puzzle and needs cleared to resolve the root.  Will my book revision help her?  I don’t know.  If it does help her, then I need to begin right away.

As an EFT (emotional freedom technique) Advanced practitioner, I use the techniques with myself, family, friends, and clients.  Personally, I use tapping with everything, from headaches to bruises, from smashed toes to blurry vision.  Tapping has not cured all my physical ailments, but I don’t hold it against the tapping.  Before these ailments will dissolve, I need to find the deep root of said ailment.  Until, then I will continue using the medication the doctor prescribed.

Should you decide to tap for health, wealth, happiness and personal growth, PLEASE take responsibility for your well-being.

For the creative whimsical side of life, tapping allows you to free your thoughts and access your muse.  When stuck writing a scene and the characters aren’t cooperative in showing me what they want to do so that we can achieve the outline, I begin tapping.  In my Tracy Richards’ story this brought forth the hero, an US attorney for the UN at The Hague.  Thats not a career I had never thought of before.  The story line opened globally with that career choice.

The Questions Asked:

Has your interaction with fans, for example, at conventions, affected your work?

Oh yes!  When I do writer workshops on creative blocks and teaching the tools to overcome these bits of difficulty, I am always intrigued with a writer and their spirituality.  These two things often times entwine.   To watch a writer overcome a stumbling block, and evolve on his or her spiritual path at the same time is very rewarding.

And… The readers, who bring their spiritual questions to me, at conventions, always give me ideas on what to include in the next story.

Is there any particular incident (a letter, a meeting, a comment that stands out?

How gracious my readers are to me.  There isn’t a day, I don’t receive a private message from a fan of my work telling me how real one of the characters feel to them or asking if the story is about someone they know.  Glad to say, the stories are not about those in my past that have been clients or students.  The fact, remains that I am in awe they would think so.  This is what every author strives for and I’m blessed to have readers message me with these little nuggets of nice.

Do you have a favourite author or book (or writer or film or series) that has influenced you or that you return to?

My favorite action heroes have all but Mr. Chan, have starred in Mr. Stallone’s ‘Expendables’.  While my heroine won’t live up to that type of action status, she is inspired to try at times.  Of course, her action often times is instigated by the paranormal personalities that I have visit her.

Who is the person you would most like to be trapped in a lift (elevator) with? or a spaceship?

To name the heart throbs of my youth maybe TMI.  Given my maturity, I might focus more on Sam Elliott, Sylvester Stallone, and Jackie Chan for distinguished conversation of course and creative influence.

Mr. Stallone and Mr. Chan have carved out exceptional careers for themselves and any of that creative genius that can rub off onto me, I would sincerely appreciate.  Mr. Elliott has an air about him which tells me he made his career while keeping his integrity in tact, and that is important to me.

Who is the person you would most DISlike to be trapped in a lift with? Or a spaceship?

My ex.  While I still have memories of him being a nice, fun, party type of guy, evidently it’s rumored he is not nice with his memories of me.  I steer clear of folks who do not like me or talk nice.  Just a self imposed rule I have for myself.

What would you pack for space? (Is there a food, beverage, book, teddy bear, etc that you couldn’t do without?)

Coffee, Chock Full of Nuts coffee would be the first thing to get packed.  A life-line to my two besties which would be more for me than them and to transverse the afternoon cosmos, we’d pack some coke cola and ice. Hmm, I guess I would have to forgo the ice and hope our mothership had an ice machine.

What is the most important thing you would like to get/achieve from your work?

To inspire fans who want to learn different aspects of spirituality, to put into practice the small lessons my heroine shares with them.  The reader should not try trance without a trained medium/teacher assisting.  The other lessons are safe and can be done alone as a solitary practitioner.

What is the special satisfaction of your work?

I write in first person, therefore during the course of the day I get to be the action figure I write about.  The visions are perfect more often than not, the readings are accurate and my work is well received and honored with hefty gratuity.  Each book contains a spiritual lesson that I have taught to my students of spirituality.  There is a bit of truth in this book of fiction.

Born? (can be date/place as preferred)

In the Ohio Valley in the state of Ohio, this is sometimes referred to as the armpit of America.  I’m not exactly sure what that means, but a lot of folks who travel through seem to agree.

Resides? (can be region, country as preferred)

I’ve returned to Ohio, where southern good manners are a must for those who dine with me.  Just because we live in the north doesn’t mean I do not expect the door opened, the chair pulled out at a restaurant, or yes ma’am, no sir spoken as it should be.

We all use our guides to help with various non-spiritual stuff and I am no different.  Living on a farm there is a lot of things to do before winter arrives once again.  This summer, Spirit Guides helped to accomplish the trimming of the trees, mowing, weeding under the huge pine trees, as well as finding tall plants to go in front of my porch.  In my mind, this will conceal the road not far away.  I would like it to cut down on the amount of traffic I hear.  In reality, I’m not sure it will do anything but give me green to look at all year long through my front window.  But with all the outside work, the online side of life has taken a backseat.

gutters still need cleaned and the roof sweep off once a year

gutters still need cleaned and the roof sweep off once a year

Now, some of you who view my photos will think I should have done more grooming of the plants than necessary, while others will agree it is nice to have a wild look yet contained.  My front yard is more wild than the field.  I have large plants against the porch, under-skirting, and high ground cover along the front edge of the porch.  I planted three stalks of bamboo, expecting it to camouflage me while I swing on the front porch.

Wisdom Quest North, gatherings, drumming, pot luck, camping, Readers Row, Cindy Carver

canopy of trees

In the field, I have groomed the trees to provide a canopy for us.  Whether we do primitive camping, drumming or pot luck gatherings it will give a bit of relief from the hot sun and offer a breeze.  The area in the photo to the left is where the younger children like to play kick-ball, badminton, or volleyball for the adults.  This past weekend our family enjoyed this area with a campfire, pot luck, and the all time yummy somemores made with peanut butter cups, instead of chocolate bars.

My writing muse awakened me at all hours of the night to finish the first draft of the first book in the Séance series last week.  Séance will be a free novella offered on this website and my critique partner, Renee Pellegrino’s website.  After a couple novelettes and or novellas are completed in this series we will publish them through Amazon’s kindle format.  Séance will feature one of our deceased characters who would have played an important part in the life of the hero or heroine, had they lived.  Sometimes it we will feature a character that is not named and is referred to such as a parent, a sibling, or in a detective novel it would be the person killed on page one.

The Séance series will of course have our favorite heroine, Tracy Richards The Paranormal Investigator on board with heroines of collaborating authors books looking for answers that might not play a pertinent role in their stories, but is interesting none the less.

Look for the debut of “Séance: Eileen” to be released in September, 2014.

Prosperity: The Freedom Experiment (Part 2) | Inheritance: More Than Money

Proven Psychics | FreedomHigh school science class and health class taught us, we inherit our body’s composition such as: eyes, hair, nose, skin, defects or body types. After listening to my Shaman father and his friends talk about what aspects we inherit, it was clear we inherit beliefs, thoughts, and memories too. These attributes effect our actions and decision making, prosperity, and freedom. Now, I know your wondering how we inherit our beliefs, thoughts, and memories.

When I say “we,” I am referring to my ancestors and myself. I am Métis. Métis is a french word that describes the children of the french trappers and native women of the North American continent. I tell you this so that you can reference and understand where my beliefs, thoughts and memories come from. My father was born on the Appalachian Trail in east Tennessee, where our family resided for a few hundred years. I am also a fourth generation shamanic practitioner on my Daddy’s side. Engrained with the belief that we take donations and that the townsfolk will compensate us for our time and talent. The old mountain belief of “Don’t ask for what should be given,” runs deep.

You may have heard the saying: “Thoughts are things.” The Native side of my upbringing taught me that everything has a Spirit. If enough energy is given to that Spirit, it develops a life force of it’s own. The same happens with thoughts. When enough energy is given a thought, it takes shape. Thought-forms which take on even more energy develop a Spirit, and then a life force.

Einstein is reported to have said, “Energy follows thought.” If this is true, then by handing down the statement, “Don’t ask for what should be given” takes on a whole life of it’s own. The truth of the matter if you need something, ask.

Some of my clients have shared that they believe: Spirituality and Prosperity can not co-exist. Do you have this belief? Let me share a truth with you, it is a lie. You do not have to choose between the two. The idea probably started when a class of people wanted to control another class of people. People who are prosperous are difficult to control. To control the masses or individuals, those in charge try to prevent them from becoming prosperous. This is a method that has been used for centuries and has worked. Once something has been told enough times, through the generations, it is accepted as fact. The real truth is, it was never the truth in the beginning.

Everything is energy and energy can be changed. This pertains to past events as well as future events. We the have the ability to create an energy shift with our minds and thoughts. Whether you think you can’t or you think you can… you are right!

Set a goal. Make it a little beyond achievable. Maybe getting a job this week, or saving a thousand dollars on a new (to you) vehicle. A goal you need to meet, and haven’t attained yet. This will be what you and I will work toward achieving for you.

This process is a four hour workshop I teach. I do believe that intent alone can accomplish your goal. In the workshop, we focus through dowsing. Dowsing is a form of divination by pendulum, L-rods, or bobber.

Incorporate some of these ideas and evoke prosperity, embracing freedom for a better way of life. Use the experiment for the next couple of months and see how well these ideas work. Remember to leave your comments on the blog under

Prosperity: The Freedom Experiment (Part 1)

Proven Psychics | Freedom

My clients know that I am all about changing energy to make life easier. For those who want life to be easier, you can experience it. Have you ever been so tired you fall into bed, and then wake up tired? Or have you finally saved enough for the down payment on that new (new to you) car, only to have the stove, washer or something break and take the money in another direction? Me too.[pullquote]Freedom emphasizes the opportunity to exercise one’s rights, powers, and desires. We’re going to take that and combine it with having the power to determine when you are free, without restraint.[/pullquote]

These happened to me for years. Then, I learned how to change the energy. As a young person, I didn’t really pay attention to practices my Dad did as a Shaman. Then as a young apprentice it began to click. In four months time, I had set the energy change into motion and quadrupled our household income.

Prosperity, the Freedom Experiment

I want prosperity, freedom and personal liberty for you. The most common mistake is thinking it won’t work for you. I’m sure you have followed the trend of positive thinking, the law of attraction, and maybe even casting of spells, right? If you are focused on the prosperity aspect of the situation alone, your prosperity might improve a bit yet nothing lasting or long term. To allow the prosperity to ‘hold’ or become permanent, you must shift the energy which causes the lack, self sabotage, self punishment, self hatred in order for the prosperity to continue.

You don’t wake in the morning and consciously think, ‘how can I screw up my day with some lack of money and self sabotage’. Neither did I. This will be a stretch for many to comprehend, but hang in there please. My belief system of prosperity is , it is inherited. Something else to consider is, if you didn’t inherit from your family, did your spouse inherit from their family? Are you now living with your spouse’s inheritance of a prosperity belief? This happened to me and it’s happened to Rhea. Rhea’s hubby inherited his prosperity belief system. Vicariously, Rhea is now affected by her husband’s inherited prosperity belief system. I decided to experiment with being FREE of the inherited condition of poverty, by focusing on prosperity, and the freedom experiment. My desire is to help you achieve personal liberty. I invite you to join me in Prosperity: The Freedom Experiment.

Step one is understanding the definition of prosperity and freedom. With so many public figures making up their own definitions of different words, I want to first explain my view on prosperity and freedom.

Prosperity, the Freedom Experiment

Prosperity will be defined as a successful, flourishing or thriving condition, especially in financial respects; good fortune.

Freedom emphasizes the opportunity to exercise one’s rights, powers, and desires. We’re going to take that and combine it with having the power to determine when you are free, without restraint.

The combination of prosperity and freedom will give you personal liberty, as opposed to bondage or slavery. The statement, “a slave who bought his freedom” is about the person who had the wealth to insure his/her personal liberty. If you agree with this version of Prosperity, the Freedom Experiment, let us continue with part two Inheritance- More Than Money.
