How Many…

How many times have you thought about what’s happening to our world? How deep did you go looking to find some answers and gave up looking, because it is just too depressing and dark inside of that hole.

Let’s not let this dark deep hole destroy your emotion and let it take over the life we live here on our beautiful Earth. We can skate around with joy and excitement of life, listen to children’s laughter and hold hands.

Trusting that everything is going to be okay with you. That inner knowing is what we hold on to and keep going. It is time to really look into our abilities as WOMAN. Think about this, without woman in motion, would your Christmas went well? Would your children get what they wanted? How did that beautiful dinner get done and everything get done. Sure there are some woke men out there, but majority of men are not romantic or “woke.”

Woke in some sense, but they’re missing something. They are missing out on going out to do their manly hood activities that are rooted deep inside of them, from their DNA level, they need to go hunt and kill. Or in a war, or anything to use their body to the end.

Us women are not like that at all. Physically, our DNA cannot do what men does. I didn’t mean to go out of my agenda this far with this writing today, but i guess its coming out. Many parents are concern about their children’s gender orientation right now, how to support them, how to be okay with their changes…etc. You know this if you are parent right now.

There are different theories, but it seems to me that we are going through a major shift in our earthy society. These children sees stressed out grumpy man, and doesn’t want to be like that. Girls in middle school doesn’t want to be looked as piece of ass and have to deal with stupid drama, and that’s why they hide their prettiness under baggy clothes or boyish outfits. It doesn’t mean that they are going through gender confusion.

American society is really leading this open gender, non binary body, and it is only getting bigger. Being open to this new change in our world, we are called to become more conscious to each being, more sensitive how to treat each other, and all inclusive attitudes with nonjudgmental in all levels.

This actually takes practice and trusting that what is around you is perfect. Not to look to far out to the unknown, just appreciating the now and what we got going. Stress comes from “lack” of something usually, and if we let ourselves get stressed, our body will live as so.

If we live life as love and gratitude, our body vibes in this frequency and everything falls into places more naturally. It is the control that we have to let go as human right now. Look around, you are not alone and start talking and share your inner feeling to follow moms and women. They completely understand and hear you. They totally get you and know exactly what you are feeling and going through.

Not to give up on man, but to be wise and take responsibilities to our lives and the next step. Not to divide and separate, but as one, we are in the era of leading. Leading with LOVE and HEART.


Breathe slow and deep into your heart…

Take this moment to love yourself, smile from your heart to know that you are not alone in this journey right now. We are in the process and it is hard and slow, but we see, if we keep going no matter what, the out come is beautiful and your children will see that too. Reach and lean on follow moms and women. We are all here for each other.

We will figure this out.

Love, Love, Love to the World~

Happy New Year 2023!!

A Big Summer

How is your summer going this year? It seems as everyone out there are having a big summer adventures, and just so much joy. It is so wonderful to see happy faces and people being out and about despite the Covid existence.

Don’t you find it so interesting that there are so many opinions and beliefs out there on this whole topic of this epic time we are living in every single day? I do. It’s like we can agree until to some certain point, but if you don’t think your children brah brah brah….

It’s kind of scary…

My survivable mode is to not take sides and staying neutral. I love my work but I am not here to tell people what to do with their lives you know. I love helping and guiding but not my place to judge on anybody. I love to provide a safe place for healing wherever people are. I have humble experiences get to watch and witness their hard work of healing.

Human has been suffering for generations with trauma after another.

It’s over flowing out of world. So much trauma every where. We are all healing from all of the trauma that’s in our DNA, man are paying their karma too and suffering, but if we don’t stop and heal, it keeps getting harder and harder. Only when we accept and heal by looking in and feeling the grief, fear, and anger to realized that these feelings are no good for us.

There’s a way…

We are all here for each other and know that we want to support another, protect our children and their children too, you know.

It’s a Big Emotional Time

Emotions are so difficult sometimes don’t you think? How can our emotions affect us so much every single day? Holding true feelings creates masking on the face, because our face is right there in front of the brain! Ohh, no wonder!! We naturally read people’s attitude and energy without really trying right? You can always tell if someone is going to be aggressive or kind to you.

At the same time, we get so good at hiding the true feeling and have the mask on all the time, but after a while we might lose our own senses of who we are. Especially as women we are so trained to be quite and be well put together, never say anything rude, just smile and nod. Maybe more in Japan we are that way. I remember when I was about 12 or 13 years old, the boys were fighting and I stepped in, and the boy from rival school looked at me and said

“You’re cute if you don’t say anything.”

I mean, this is my trauma and what’s got stuck in me from that very moment. Girls are supposed to just be quite and be pretty for the guys. Old man culture of Japan has strong way of feminizing and top down society. This is so strong that I feel so much of my friends from Japan, we feel more free here in US, we are not constantly on high performance state of mind.

Not to this extreme in US, but there’s still all man above society has deep roots in how the world is build. Women, we are rising up for a while now, thank you American women, and we are at the next stage of rising up right now. We are making the money and being part of making some of the most important decisions for the world. More and more women are leading in different industries and softening the edges.

It is not to separate men and women, but we shall work in harmony to help up lift one and other. Not to traumatize each other and boss each other around. Not to shame a person, but if we all work together to save the earth what could happen to us all… I can only see beautiful outcome from this basic vision of our humanity. Race, sex, gender, whatever! Who cares who you are and how you feel about who you are, because we have to focus on real problems of the world here.

I understand there’s so much problems in the world, for our children, for the good of the future, as just post pandemic trauma I can see how these years have affected my 2 year old daughter, and there’s much more right now for all the generations and businesses. It is scary and you might feel alone times to times, and feeling your energy field, its so tight. Feels small and there is a wall around you, but look around you. There are so many bad ass women out there, your girl friends, all the women in many different field doing our best in everything. Widen your energy field in that way, it goes for miles and miles.

Feel that we are on the same BOAT…

A big boat to where our famine consciousness is taking and leading the way already. We are doing it, we are heading to the better world right now. You are not the only one who is trying and doing everything in your power everyday. We are on the same boat. I really want you to feel this, think about your friends who is a nurse, a doctor, a business owner, a farmer, a teacher, and we are moms and wives, and a daughter. So don’t give up now. Look up and feel the wide open boat that we are on, and we are sailing towards the beautiful future for our children.

Just keep doing what your are doing, learn to widen your heart space and be able to hold more capacity without any struggle there. No more holding back because for whatever reasons. Be you, if you are tired, you are tired, take a break. Nourish yourself with all the beautiful fruits, vegetables, nature, and lean into your body wisdom and listen to it. Your body will tell you what you need if you try. If you are happy and pursue that dream of yours, get started, start making a list for that dream to happen. Set your heart and believe that you were born to do that. Remember when you were a child and had that perfect moment in your life that everything made sense. You knew exactly what you were doing in that moment in your life.

Emotions are good if we can use it to move our body and minds. It becomes difficult when you let that emotion get stuck in your brian or the heart. Especially worse if you don’t deal with it and store it somewhere in the body. When emotion arise, breathe and let it out by telling the person about it, ask questions to yourself why you are feeling this way and go deeper to the meaning of these tears and sadness. All the tears are release from the body, letting that shit go, and tap your shoulder and kiss your heart. You know everything makes perfect sense when you calmly look at the situation.

Back to masking. Take it off. Release …. Because we can all feel each other. We just pretend not to notice because it is the plight thing to do usually. Recognize each other. Just a small recognition and thanking them or sharing kind words, hugs, sharing real moments, true heart to heart conversations, exchange of real energy of love, looking into the eyes, enjoy life in that moment with 100% consciousness will bring so much joy to our souls.

So use this big emotions to move you. Move you like you never let yourself go to be the true you.

Yes, take your time doing so. Enjoy the sunshine on your face just for a moment, feel your body rejuvenate and freedom and the calmness. Slow it down, because we don’t want to rush through not knowing how you are handling and not be able to make your own consciousness reply to some hard situations. Use this time to study and learn how the body functions and work for you. It is never too late to live fully from the soulful-self.

Trust the gut feeling and even though its uncomfortable, keep looking in and in, deeper and deeper. Bring out the trauma, release and remember to nourish and forgive. Humanity is going through a major healing right now and we are just part of it. You are not alone, we are on the same boat, healing the generational trauma, our grandmother’s trauma, our mother’s trauma. Making peace with it and forgiving all assaults from YOUR body. Release from your physical body. We are on the same boat. Wash it away, Mother Earth will take care of that into her cycle of life. Decompose into sparkling forest mist.

Feel your body lighten up, more space for new adventures and what’s ahead. Dream your life, focus on your life and children, for their mental health and physical health. We shall not feel guilty because that guilt is conditioned deep into our feminine nature. Let that go. We can enjoy life. We shall feel joy and happiness. As women we have so much potential that we NEVER ever had before, or its been thousands and thousands of years ago maybe. So take this opportunity and lead the world with our hearts and love. Feeling you. I love you. All the power to you!!

Love, Love, Love to the World~!!

Traditional Medicine for Modern People

Why caring for your own body works wonders for all of us. As soon as you start noticing for each little signs that comes up and figure out why that happened the way it did, we start to connect the dots. In same way this is traditional medicine. Just simply noticing the signs and symptoms.

When we put together all the symptoms together and figure out which organs are involved with your condition, then we can start to treat it, but we always have to know which organs are not working well or unhappy.

Traditional medicine is very simple and kind.

From head to toe, emotions to habits, patterns to pain, childhood to right now, spirit to cosmic, all of that matters in big picture. This is why when you go see a licensed practitioner depends on where they are in their lives of understanding the big picture, the quality of treatment will differ…!

Let’s break it down

First of all, the system of how the body is looked at is different from the Western Medicine, and it is important to keep it separated from one another until you have the complete understanding of both. The biggest differences is the language or terminology used in both medicine. Completely different language and how they understand body.

Create an empty space in your brain, be open, simply bring your awareness to a peaceful space. It is the ancient secret of how did these old people live so long and healthy and happy in Asian countries. Since I am Japanese, I might be sharing more from my tradition that comes from my family, but my original study was done in USA, master program of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Chinese Medicine study comes with theory of Yin & Yang, Five element, the Vital Substances (Essence, Qi, Blood, Body Fluids), the functions of the Internal Organs (Heart, Liver, Spleen, Lungs, Kidney, Stomach, Small Intestine, Pericardium, Gall Bladder, Large Intestine, Bladder, and Triple Burner)

Mostly all the diagnosis comes from understanding the patterns of each organs’ disharmony because small symptoms that you might not even think it’s a symptoms is in fact, a key element in diagnosing in this medicine. For example, feeling stressed, tired, easily emotional, poor digestion all can be represented in one person. This indicates that this person’s Liver is overacting on Spleen giving digestion problems and when we look at this case deeper, we go into what is causing this person’s true unhappiness that is causing the stress to begging with.

We would get into some conversation of what is causing the stress, what is it that you really want to do in your life, because ultimately, the heart, the Empire, your spirit, needs to be express for you to be happy in this life. When we pretended to be good, put out shield, or there was childhood trauma, conditioning to fit in, religious guilt, heart broken, death, any of these things and more can create disconnect to your true heart and self.

When there’s disconnect from the heart, coming to the heart space becomes foreign and out of practice. Seems painful to go there because these’s so many trauma there that has been stored. Spirit is out of the body no longer have a anchor there to be in the heart space. Your spirit and its purpose needs to be lived from the heart space for anyone and for everyone to be truly happy here on earth. It is not just a stress, anger, grief that hold us back. Looking at the big picture, stepping back a little we can live the full potential.

So, there’s a lot there

But truly, this is why we are here now on earth to heal our wound that is coded in our DNA. Human has been so horrible to each other and there’s so much trauma we carry in our body. Our mother and grandmother and so many generations of survival. Each generations has made peace at their lives, had their purpose of life, bringing endless love and comfort to children in some eras. Good and bad all mixed up in balance like Yin and Yang.

In my clinic, if or when a person is ready we can talk about all of these things, or we only talk about which part of their body is painful. All depends on where people are in their evolution. I am just there to help and support, cheering and holding space for whatever that needs to happen. All my understanding comes from seeing and working with patients. I love what I do so very much I know that this is what I am here to do, and I know that there’s more.

Back to medicine
Heart and Kidney has strong connection as Fire and Water balance in our body, as well as they have common root for the Mind and Essence.

As you feel, the Heart is Fire and Kidney is Water. Fire is Yang, Water is Yin in this case and they balance each other constantly. More details are within these elements and organs, but keeping it very simple, Heart the Spirit is in contract with Kidney’s Fire which determines how much energy to spent and burn at a time to support the purpose of the spirit each day. Manic people are not rooted in their Kidney, they are burning too much of their Kidney essence by using drugs or caffeine (more than 2 cups a day people.) Kidney essence is what is passed down from your parents and grand parents, where we feel the connection to our ancestral energy.

Our motivation and will power comes from the Kidney essence and energy. One Kidney for what you are born with and your parent’s health and mental health at the time of your conceive greatly matters. Another Kidney energy is associated with how you live your life right now and how you nourish your body each step of the way of aging process. The harmony is this happy balance of your life purpose, will power, and healthy living. Even choosing your death is becoming possible, because when we choose how we want to die that helps with how we live.

Each person is original with unique back ground and appearance we offer to the world. Ultimately treating pain leads to calming their spirit, and help us get grounded, get back into the body. Taking care of the body with kindness brings peace to the nervous system. Keeping all life fun activities to moderation help us stay balance. The word you say to yourself to others, carries energy and be careful not to be so hard on yourself and others.

Any modality of healing is great when your heart and body feels good about it. Trust your instinct of YES that flows into the body. Please know that your healing helps others to heal, when you open up to invisible world and start to listen to your body wisdom and let it flow and receive, you are connected to your own inner human potential so beautifully.

Early Treatment & Prevention


This is what we do to prevent covid19 in our house hold and I hope this will guide you to a better understanding of our body and environment. We have 4 children of all size and gender. If and when any of us have a slightest symptom of sore throat, running nose, and or a sneeze, we stop and cut out diary, take herbal formula for cold, make some nutrient rich soup with mushroom, ginger, onion and garlic. Adding seaweed to the soup was very good too, adding iodine to the mix.

Then to making sure that we are staying hydrated and warm, wear socks and I like to wear slippers. Children’s are not going to school at this point because they have to wear mask all day and this will just make them worse all at once, breathing in and out of their own toxic gas, so it is just easier if we just stay home and let the body take care of it, and get better.


Maybe before all the covid life style, people will still go out and about with just runny nose or slight sore throat, and cough, but right now, we have to take extra caution not to spread anything to anyone. Even to yourself, we don’t want to get really sick because you are stranded wearing mask all day. Body need to breath and detox. Other supplements are helpful as you know already, zinc, vitD and C, and many other ones you already do.


Quality matters. Buy organic broccoli and cauliflower, buk choy are great food source we need for making anti-inflammatory precursors in the body. Eat clean, get filter for water or your body is working extra hard to filter the water too. Go out to nature and breath real clear air, your body will notice the differences for sure. Your mind will notice the differences. Stop eating all the prepackaged food, process food, and fast food.



Eat real vegetables and fruits. I mean, we are not perfect, we still have some food in our house like peanut butter, organic cereal, brownie mix, snacks, and we buy chips. But we also pretty much cook all meals including lunch for the kids. We eat meat, but we support organic farm. Not only we feel beautiful, our body let us know what’s going on at acute moment of something is wrong.


Sore throat, first sign of you just inhale something and there’s something there. GARGLE! Gargle everyday when you get home! Gargle with zeolite in it or salt or I guess you can swing a shot of sake if you are at party…! Lol, but for real, pay attention. Sore throat doesn’t mean that you are sick, it just means that there’s something there and your body is letting you know, so do something about it. If it doesn’t go away by gargle, take some herbs. Gan Mao Ling, is a great formula in Chinese medicine that we have been using this whole time of pandemic. As soon as you have the uncomfortable throat, you take Gan Mao Ling. It has antiviral and antibacterial properties, and it doesn’t suppress your immune system, it actually help you.

When you take herbs, you boost your immune, we never want to suppress your immunity.


Runny nose, I guess this can be allergy, but people are having some pain behind the nose these days. This is due to bad air quality, or spike protein. Again, wash it out. Nitty pot or diffuser for nose. You can add little zeolite or hydrogen Peroxide. KILL it and get rid of it as soon as possible. Just like when you have a fly in the house… get rid of it. No mercy.


Take things easy this year, be prepared to stay home with kids at any giving moment. Don’t stress out. Figure out with work and partner, family that school could be closing for weeks at a time and someone needs to be home with kids. Stressing over this is the last thing we want to do as a parent. Have a good plan and know that it will be another slow year, but at least we are going to school some in person and we are figuring out as we go.


Give yourself a breathing break, go outside and stretch, take off your mask and take a deep breath. We need to breath and take in oxygen and smile.


Get some sleep at least from 10pm~2am, because that’s when our body needs to be resting to produce the most growth hormone. Just do it and our body recover each and every day so much better. Meditation to relax the mind, take time for your body, and spend time for your spirit to gain happiness. We are in difficult time and as adult, we do need to stand up strong and show our children that we are resilient and kind, and caring to other human being.

For small children, if you feel their back, they too have muscle tensions and hold stress there and it is important to help them loosen up. Especially when they are sick or getting sick. It will help them feel relax and body can ease and the touch from their mama is worth so much. Baby to toddler love getting their extra skin on their back to be pinched and gently pulled a little bit. This technique can open up their air way and clams the nerve.

I totally understand with these little ones, treating them is hard, like giving them herbs, but if you ask me or any certified practitioner near you, you can get powder herbs and you can mix with blueberry jam or honey if they are over a year old. Kids response fast and get better fast with lots of tender loving care. They also loves good broth from the nutrient rich soup.

We can do this! I believe in our amazing body and natural healing ability to get through this! It’s survival right now. It is time to be serious about health and wellness. Going within, connecting to our inner beauty of spirit, guided by your goddess wisdom from your heart.

Take care out there.

Living the Medicine

Living the medicine means that each and everyday is a work. A conscious effort to be well. You can’t be healthy once you are sick. Healthy body and mind takes up lots of time and energy. What’s my motives? I have been asking myself this for the last few days. What is my motives…? Why am I this way…? It’s big identity question and I laugh, because it’s a silly. Who am I…? What am I doing and why am I this way…?


Ohh the big why…

This is so much fun because I love challenges and changes in my life. I tend to get real board when things are the same way all the time. I am pretty sure this comes from me moving across the ocean when I was 4 and then again at 14 years of age. I need some stimulations to feel alive, to feel challenges, to feel responsible. I love taking role of being in charge of a party or an event. I love communicating with people and figuring out the best out come for everyone.


So what am I doing now…?


Covid pandemic is shaping our world to a whole new world right now as we speak. Every day there’s something new happening and more information are getting layered on top of more layers that goes all the way to the dark side of humanity. We really don’t know how deep this rabbit hole goes. Young generations are confused, only listening to their parents and grandparents, and they are lost in social media. Numbing their brains to darkness and depressing feelings.


Trending in social media are building blocks of our new young generation. I don’t want to go there. I don’t want to talk about this right now. I don’t want to worry about my daughter and her mental health! I think she is amazing and she is doing her best in learning and absorbing the world. I just worry about the future, so then my motive is the preserve the way of ancient, the folk medicine, the traditional medicine and the Dao, the way, the path.


I trained in Japan for 7 years with a Shinto master who holds the ancient secret of Japanese Emperor. During the WWII, Japanese’s Emperor was threaten because the way we were running the Country. How all the people adored the Emperor and how Emperor adored the people. Traditional way of how the country ran was a threat to the world, because people believed. People believed that by praying for good and living the beauty way brought happiness and joy to every day lives in people. Good fortune brings good harvest, good intention brings amazing beauty from within.


All of the simple way of living was powerful.


It was a threat to the Western culture. Not good for globally expanding business.


My teacher Nanasawa sensei’s teacher’s teacher’s teacher was the secret holder of the Emperor family tradition. During WWII, when they sense the threat, they put away the secret to this guy who was a family member for taking care of Gohuku (the white kimono outfit to do the ceremonies), who had strong sensitivity to knowing the way of ceremonies and chants. Who then ran away to south of Japan, changing careers and keeping and holding the secret safe.


Only handful of people are trained today and practice ceremony. We don’t, but we have to copy of the chant and know the intention and the history of the Shinto in Japan. As I learn and live life, I understand that these secrets are very similar to the many ancient spiritual way of living and teachings. One of the big one is that, we create our own world by the word we use and how we feel. What you say has frequency and the energy carries to create a reality. In Shinto, a-i-u-e-o and all 50 sounds has its own spirit in each sound.




Kami is god like frequency and in Shinto, there’s 8000 Kami that exist in nature. That’s where Shinto’s secret comes from. There’s God/Goddess like beings in everything. The intention of living changes all of the sudden, when you realize there’s Kami=God/Goddess in everything… the breeze that runs through your hair, the leaves shaking with the wind, the clouds, the bubbles in the ocean wave, the rock by the water fall, the sacred river path, smell of nature, the mist of forest… this is how Japanese people used to live…


Being the Kami themselves…

The spirit, the Kami that lives inside of you is to be awaken. As soon as you realize that you are a Kami too, you can start to create your world.  Well, my app is staring to lag… so I’ll stop here today.

Thank you and again some other time.


Story of Home Birth

For a decade now I have been pregnant and having babies and working, always balancing being the mama, the care giver, and providing services. First pregnancy was maybe the toughest, because as much as I tried to be good about everything (eating balanced meal, walking and exercise), I still gain the most weight, and was tired after the birth for about 9 months. It was my first time to get used to not getting enough sleep every night, and putting all my energy and effort to taking care of the little baby and still do all the things.

Second pregnancy was amazing, I was walking more, had a midwife to support me and gave me lots of advice, weekly gatherings with other pregnant moms, lots of self care with moxa (dried mugwort) treatment, and learned the importance of keeping my ankles warm of ALL time no matter if you are pregnant during the summer or not.

Inside ankle, the meridians or the pathway that runs through there goes up to lower abdomen, by keeping this area nice and warm will help uterus to be relaxed and keep the blood circulation going. Which is very important during pregnancy. Also for painful period, you can think about this same theory.

Growing a human is a incredible job.

The idea of growing a baby human in my belly, I was into eating super well with organic ingredients, making green smoothies everyday, taking supplements, and exercising with bouncy ball every week. My hippie husband introduced me to this idea of having a water birth, and we YouTube and google it, then it became a dream to have a water birth at home. You know what else… making placenta pills at home…

Market who sells placenta pills, they use pig’s placenta, why not have your own placenta when you know what you have been eating to make that placenta. I have spend a lot of money eating well and keeping myself healthy, I WANT my placenta. During my school years in Traditional Chinese Medicine, we hear about how to process raw placenta into safe pills. I would tell you if you want to know, but I can’t share here right now, but you would need some help and understanding from your people to support your needs.

My husband is little different. A good guy. A smart guy. He is interesting, I recommend getting to know him yourself too! Anyways, with my mom’s help too, they worked together to process my placenta after I gave birth. Let me tell you how wonderful placenta works for recovery, day and night differences in recovery compare to after birth from the first one. I am completely dedicated to my alternative life style at this point in my life, recognizing what my body tells me, and listen to my heart what feels right.

I find water birth at home was much more relaxing and easy than delivering baby at the hospital. I’ve learned that slightest stress you feel will slow down or stops your dilation (when cervix is opening for birth). When I was giving birth at the hospital I was stuck at 9.5cm for 2 hours, because the woman next to me was screaming and freaking out a little bit, then a nurse walked by me with a huge suction gadget… (my thoughts were, is she going to stick that up in her to pull the baby out?!) I was not suggested to push and advised to stay put.

I think when the mom is having a baby and being depended on other people around telling her what to do, it loses confident in the mom to listen to her own body. I spoked to several women and had talked about labor situation and wished that they thought about it and knew about being more prepared. Only if they had a midwife to walk that through with them. For me, the focus to feel my body and the freedom of being at my own house environment with people you trust was very nice during the labor.

When preparing your home for labor, you have all the time in the world to get ready. Of course your midwife will provided the list of items and things for you to gathered, she will then make sure that you have a birth plan too like where you want to have this baby. You tell her where all the towels and sheets are so they are are ready to take over. You will be in close contact with your midwife, so she is ready for you at anytime of the day. You just have to call her when you know it’s happening!

I know what you are thinking, what happenings when things are going somehow wrong? You will have your OBGYN Doctor who you have seeing and he or she knows that you are doing home birth, so if your midwife make that decision at the spot of birth, somehow you need to go into the hospital, then she will come with you. She will stay and take care of you after birth. Your midwife is your trusted personal during your pregnancy, guidance and expertise that will help you get through some challenging time of life.

To be in excellent condition to home birth you do have to work for it, but you do get to make many decisions to comfort and make it magical.

6 years later with third baby, I was happy to be pregnant, but it had been a while. My body had little bit of hard time adjusting to being pregnant, felt heavier and slower to move from early stage, maybe because it was a boy? An old veggie stand lady in Japan told me carrying girl feels lighter than carrying a boy…….. For me this was true! I also had early onset of having problems with having hemorrhoid with bleeding and easy irritation… This indicates me that my general health was not in the best shape, maybe had been drinking alcohol more, not enough greens in my life, was under a good amount of pressure after moving across the ocean from Japan back to US, finding a balance in life, and starting to work in a new environment in new town. Not to mention, my mom was dying of cancer at the same time too…

Stress during pregnancy is not good. It is not good for the baby or the mom. Everything becomes harder than it should. Pregnancy is something you can really enjoy and take time and put all the focus into growing a healthy happy baby. I think we forget that, especially now with busy lives and so many things happening around us. There are so much to consider and worry about in this world today with negative and sadness all around us, and if we focus on that it is hard to look for positive and light in the world.

My mom’s passing was very difficult and still it is hard to believe that she is gone, but we feel that she watches over us. My husband and I really wanted another baby, a baby girl… We only wanted a girl. It is 50/50 and we never know, but I felt that another pair of kids will be fun. Older two are getting old now 11 and 9 years old. As soon as I got pregnant, of course it is a little bit of shock for a few days, but everything gets figured out. I was definitely in better shape mentally, physically, and spiritually. No painful hemorrhoid incidents, a mean, its there but not causing me pain. My body felt light and I walked a lot even pushing my 2 year old in his stroller this summer going around Tokyo.

While my memory is fresh from this pregnancy, I wanted to write up my experiences and share some tips to help more women out there who are trying to get pregnant or is pregnant for the first time, or wants to enjoy pregnancy and have healthy happy baby. Also want to share and guild your mental, physical, and spiritual alignment going into the delivery. That big day. It happens to all pregnancy. It is scary and worry some for each and every time. We just never know what could happen, but we can be prepared as much as possible. For safe and comfortable birth, I highly recommend you get yourself a midwife. They are the golden ticket to you and your husband and your baby’s big day.

Midwife knows a lot about pregnancy and the new born baby. She will come to your home and check all is well with you and the baby. Blood tests are done, urine tests are done every visit, and we talk about everything that is going on. She listened to my voice for true concerns, and gave me the right advice that is the best thing to do for the safety of the baby and me. She reminds me of what is important. Stress causes blood pressure to go up, always reminding me to drink more water, take more walks, have self care time out just for me, never feel guilty for giving yourself a time to rest, and go out for you. She also makes sure that I was taking my supplements!

As the day gets closer, she came over every week, making sure the birth plan and birth supplies were there, still listening to any concerns that I would have. Having someone right there for you is the best thing for preparing for birth. Birth happens to you and the baby, but you need the support going through something so serious and dramatic event that is miracle of life. I started my birth meditation around 2 months before the due date. Putting my mind into the birth itself, meditation for smooth birth, trusting my body and natural pull of the moon cycle. I had baby blissing instead of baby shower, because I wanted to have trusted women to come together and put positive intention for the birth.

I felt that I needed to do gathering in spiritual level for protection for me and the baby, because this was my first birth without my mom. I needed to insure that my birth was being protected and guided. I felt my mom, and several other ladies felt her too. As a health care provider, for some reason I am not good at receiving care myself, (this might be true to all women) but I surrender to receive that day. That was amazing and so grateful for nurturing power of women. We support each other and we need each other. Thanks to beautiful prayer beads and powerful words on the coloring cards, candles, flower, oils, prayers and support, I had a fast and smooth birth. I listen to my body, trusted in every process, and there she was. We had our dream come true.

I feel that us women and the sisterhood needs to be celebrated more often. Gathering together to support one another, to listen to each other, to understand each other, and to be there. This is why I am adding new program to my wellness plan. I want to share how to have Healthy Happy Pregnancy and share my knowledge as advanced baby alternative care once a month on Full Moon Baby Clinic & Mama Care for you. Full Moon Baby Clinic is simple 5 to 10 minute treatment for each baby that will help them sleep better and feel better. Mama Care is to learn how, when, and where to rub your baby and yourself according to different situations. Mama will receive some kind of therapeutic treatment too. You will learn more symptom base technique that you can easy try at home. I understand as a busy mom, you don’t want to go out and worry each and every little concerns. More tool you have in your pocket, more knowledge to help your little one with your own hands, and more power to you.

If you are considering about having a baby, I am so glad that you are reading this right now and found me. I would love to share some time with you and see where you are in the process. I hope you are enjoying and having fun with your journey of becoming a parent. If it has been a stressful one, please let me know how it has been a stressful one, I hope to help you with some guidance, maybe you need herbal supplement, hopefully we can pin point what needs to happen for you. Please go have sex in regular basis and have lots fun practicing, and feel the Love!!

For you and me, for mamas, for sisters and women, for beauty, and for our spiritual needs.

I am here for you.

Love, Love, Love to the World~

First Full Moon of 2020

Let’s write a blog really quick!

Full Moon Baby here she comes

Community is a good feeling. Wherever you are, whoever you are, we all need some trusted friends. I understand that men needs their man cave time, and us women need our time. It is so interesting that we all need to feel that safe connection from one another. It is essential for our healthy mind and spiritual beings. But can you ask for help? When you really feel lonely and sad, can you reach out? Can you call?

It is so hard to actually make that call or take that action to reach out.

We want other who are close to figure it out without actually saying and reaching out… why do we do this? I think it’s because it is hard to receive as women especially, and it is hard to receive care if they are not your family. I’ve learned something recently. Sharing in regular basis is a good wonderful thing to stay tuned with your friends. So if something does happened, they already know what has been going on with you, so you can break down in front of them. They will give you the care you would need to feel safe and cared for.

Asking takes courage because when we have to ask we are vulnerable.

Asking is love, because if your trusted friend ask you for help, you will be more than happy to help. We all want to be there for each other, because we are community. Belonging to a community benefits us by sense of wholeness, oneness, and connection and love. I want to thank my friends because they helped me go through my 4th pregnancy with such a care and love. They provided me safety and space so I can be myself as whole spiritual being. Ceremony for baby blissing was amazing part of this journey, gathering with other beautiful women, and connecting with hearts. For the first time I completely relax to receive and opened my heart to the unknown. Then feeling my mom’s spirit with happiness and watching over, I felt the bliss.

Compassion and loving care to learn about others, because we are all human at the end. It doesn’t matter if you are famous, you are human and have a body. I believe in Earth People. We are all one. I just want to help humanity to evolve together to the next level of peace. I want to teach our children that they are the future and to love and care for each other.

Parenting is hard because each child has to learn hard lesson on their own from their own mistakes, and I have to be there to guild them with my tears, smiles, and kisses. Emotional education is deep and sorrow, it roots down deep and if some mistakes, they are traumatized for a long time. Grown adults with emotional trauma so old and deep is really hard to heal. As parents, there are lots of responsibilities to make things right for their children. Just because they are grown, it doesn’t mean that they don’t have anything stored in the heart.

Trusted friends becomes the family and it is wonderful.

Trusted community of like minded people will help you go through anything, even death.

Get grounded, feel the rock, dirt, sand, ocean, mountain, grass, and grow strong roots from your feet. Breath in deep and open your heart to the back like you have swings. Breath and listen. Put your attention to your heart. Open your crown chakra or top of your head to the sky.

Reach out to Universe

Know that you are okay

We belong here

Love that person

Feel the ease and smile

Love, Love, Love to the World~











Hi there!!

I am using my new iPad with key board attached to it. Trying out writing on installed word app here. It feels pretty nice to type and I am excited to be writing again. Wow, I might be able to start blogging again this year. I haven’t been writing after my mom passed. I feel and learned that when there is grief, energy gets stuck there and it is hard to move forward from there.

When people are stuck in the old trauma or grief and holding on to it, body/spirit gets stuck there too. Then we are afraid of moving forward. Or maybe not even afraid, just don’t know why but feels stuck. I felt stuck hearted. Not being able to write or find some words to put them down. I learned this summer when my dad told me what he has learned from going to some classes. Grief creates energy block.

When energy gets blocked in certain way or that unhealed pain gets stuck in a person, people lives from suffering state of mind. This is not healthy. People usually pick up unhealthy habits, become alcoholic or addicted to food or whatever and anything else. Beautiful state of mind cannot be achieved when you are stuck in this life style pattern.

To be able to come out is to finally acknowledge and make the decision in your heart to heal. When healing starts, body will relax and will help you heal. Body wants to heal, and feel better as soon as possible. It doesn’t like it when you drink too much, eat too much, smoke too much, anything too much. Body works so hard for you. It is keeping you alive. It is giving you life. Your mother gave birth to you so you can live and have a life.

Come to you heart.

Feel your heart.

Look into your heart.

Breath into your heart.

Ground your energy deep into the earth.

Feel the love in your heart. Bring the grief and trauma in there and let it go. Let some golden light surround your scar and heal. Breath in and relax into your body. Take it a easy relaxed breath into your body. Let those tears come out because you have been holding. Holding so much in. Let it come out, why do you hold so much to begin with? Who said you have to? We are all here together, you don’t have to pretend to be this iron man or woman, why? Just let your heart heard this time. Feel your heart.

Love is in the heart. Heart is only made out of love. Beautiful soul that you are only can shine through the heart and the eyes. Open up your chest. It is all going to be okay. Don’t be afraid.

Love, Love, Love to the World~!!

Pure Love = Spirit

Rest in Peace Mama


We arrived to Tokyo on 18th of December, 2017. When we got home, my mom greeted us with loud voice that I was surprised. She was so skinny and I notice that she was slightly irritated by our noise. I felt bad. Bad for this situation, nobody wants this, nobody wants her to die. She held herself for us to come home to her, held to see her grandchild once more with her own eyes.


Right away, Jason and I decided we should have a gathering party for her, so we can all come to the heart of family, to say good bye, and remember the good times, thank her for everything that she has done for us.


She waited to be on opioid until we were there, to stay conscious as possible, but as soon as were there she let down her defense. The cancer is taking over her lower abdominal cavity starting to pressure her hip joint, disturbing her bowel and urinary pathways, causing her lots of pain. Her spirit so strong, wanting to take care of her own bathroom business, washing the sink after each time she used it, and ringing the bell for help.


Sleeping beauty she called herself, princess at the tower of light, in and out of our realm. Still recognized people when they come and visit, greed them with all she got, cheering them on to their lives. She was amazing. Her brain was so clear and sharp.


Message here is that, we live with our full potential all the way to the end. Who you are matters, and each one of us is unique in our own way. Nobody has a right to judge a person and their ways of lives. I hope you are not a judger. We have no idea. …. Spirit can exist in so many forms, if you pay attention and ask, they will show up and show you. I never experienced anything like this in my entire life.


Thank you for following my story. Now I am empower to continue with my life mission and hold my passion to my heart. Creating a space for calmer, spiritual base office to share more of our feelings and study our body as full human potential in all the levels. Safe spot to be open, to feel, to connect with ancestors, to communicate with nature, help people get in tuned with their spirit’s path.


People’s spirit’s path gets disconnected and we forget to know who we really are. We are bringing sound healing, light healing, shamanic work, meditation, essential oils into our Spa style setting. Experience Spirit Spa call Botanica. There isn’t quite anything like this yet, blue printing our way of practice, to openly bringing spirit into our practice.


Live the medicine


Enjoy life everyday


Pray and connect


Feel and listen to your Heart


Find a place and space to be your Higher Self


You are YOU


Ground your feet with strong root, deep into the Earth, and spread your wings. Be 100% conscious when you are speaking to people, truly care about that person for that moment you are with them, but don’t take anything personal. Energy is real, and we do need to be careful of other people’s energy. You should have your heart energy surrounding yourself, so you don’t get sick from other people’s negativity. You know this, by you feel sometimes, feeling off for some reasons after an interaction with others.


I want to teach and guild you to become more sensitive to your body, mind, and spirit.




I am done hiding in my closet; I need windows and plants, open air to breath. Come and join us and feel the freedom.




Love, Love, Love to the World~
