Changing one’s name is an interesting phenomenon. I have done it a few times in my life. Not always did I tell all, or the most compelling reasons. After all, what anyone knows about anybody else is only their illusion of who we are. Barbara Grace Schadt at 1 year At birth I was named... Continue Reading →
Whose Illusions Are We Manifesting? OR Why Grace Left FasterEFT.
NOTE: This is the last post in a series of 12 that began on Jan. 2, 2017. I have no doubt I will again feel the wind beneath my wings and fly high. With tenacity I honor whatever this current nymphean stage is, until it leads me where I need to go. It’s another phoenix rising. This... Continue Reading →
Safe Subconscious Response Patterns
The solo search is necessary for someone whose chameleon pattern since birth was to follow. It’s a subconscious pattern of following others, join a group, to try to fit in even when I suspect I don’t, or at least feel like I don’t. The pattern weaves through my entire life, in all my relationships. Is... Continue Reading →
Technique To Release Pressure

WHAT in the WORLD am I doing!?
Why am I indoors on a gorgeously sunny spring Saturday? I could be hiking the Tallgrass Prairie but instead I am vacuuming the 1894 wood plank library sub-floor of an historic old house. WHY? I enjoy the mindlessness of the work and a special feeling of being a tiny part of the restoration of a grand... Continue Reading →
Flip Religious Solicitors
We are created to be creatures of habit, yet the nature of life is constant change. What a conundrum! Each day is like the blink of the eyes and gone before we know it. Just go through the days as they blink along. Focus on gratefulness that the systems are working perfectly. Be in the present moment allowing the flow of life and Spirit to carry me along.
I cleared my calendar for another escape, diversion and distraction. I needed to pull me out of my isolation and loneliness so I planned a trip to Kansas City to connect with other practitioners and friends. Almost as soon as I committed to the trip I didn’t want to go. It was not resistance, it... Continue Reading →
Two Remarkable Surprises
Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is a remarkable surprise. I have an hour of reflexology and an hour of JSJ. During the hour process of JSJ we don’t talk, there is no music, just lovely silence. Afterward I feel like I’ve had a full body massage. The only massage done was on my feet, nowhere else.... Continue Reading →
