Big Brothers, Big Sisters

Hi Everyone!
Sarah Kades with her super cool brother.

I have an awesome brother. He was super cool to grow up with; we hung out together, had overlapping social groups, laughed like siblings can, he taught me about cars in particular, and explained anything mechanical in general, he was there for long distance phone calls or emails when I was off exploring other countries but homesick something fierce. . . you get my drift. Well, my awesome big brother is also a Big Brother and they are fundraising for Big Brothers Big Sisters in Dane County, Wisconsin! To check out what they are about or to donate, check out the link below! 

Happy Fundraising! 

Also, a big THANK YOU to all who help in their own way to make this world beautiful.  Thank you for sharing your joy and light. ;)

Energy Hangover

So I know I usually blog about writing or outdoor stuff, but besides the environmental consultant day job and author gig, I'm also a certified Angel Therapy Practitioner ®. Let's talk energy.

So in a dream a couple nights ago an old acquaintance showed up and asked if a person could have a hangover from an upsetting event, like an emotional hangover. It was interesting he was the one who asked because he showed up in the dream in a gigantic black truck and is more prone to watching professional fights on TV, than asking energy questions to a woman who facilitates angel healing. But the dude had an important question, lets answer it.

The answer is yes, you absolutely can have an emotional hangover. I want to take it one step further and talk about an energy hangover.

Basically a hangover is your body re-harmonizing. We usually can physically feel some (lots) of the re-harmonizing. Alcohol, greasy food, sugary food can all give hangovers. Strong emotions can give hangovers, especially when they prompt the body to release goodies like adrenaline or endorphins. Energy can, too. Energy work often unlocks toxic energy that a person has been holding onto, sometime for a very long time (years, decades, or even hereditary energetic toxins you've decided to turf out). It is good thing to release crappy energy that you don't need anymore, but your body can sometimes feel it.

Hangovers, energy or otherwise, is your body rebalancing. Let it. Water, rest and time are good things to remember. Oh yes, and to be gentle with yourself. Sometimes we are crazy hard on ourselves . . . why do we do that?

It was a rather strong prompt to write this post. Hope it helped some of you.
Take care, happy reading, happy writing!

Why I Write Romance Novels Set in the Great Outdoors

I write romance novels and novellas set in the natural world, the great outdoors. Why? Because every time I sit down to write, I get to connect with places like this picture and it makes me really happy. 

It also gives me the opportunity to share my love of this beautiful world with my readers.

Have fun out there! Happy Reading, Happy Hiking!
