The Scariest Thing – Listen Up!

Life According to Jayne     The phone rang.  I barely said Hello when my excited friend started telling me about his plans to take his wife to Hawaii.  After doing an internet search his best option for accommodations was with a vender he was familiar with.  She had just built a brand new place and is renting it for a fraction of the cost of her previous, established lodgings, and my friend wanted to get in on this great deal.     Him:  “Do you know what the scariest things is”? Me:  “No, what”?! (I couldn’t imagine what he was talking about). Him:  “Because this place is new, there are no reviews”!! In my experience, many people listen with the intent to reply, and few listen with the intent to understand.  There is a big difference.  […]

You are the Prayer

Life According to Jayne:     At 10 years of age, sitting still during Sunday school can be a challenge.  Especially when given the task of memorizing multiple prayers and reciting them repeatedly.  Such was the life of my young friend.  Besides her regular school work, sports and dance class, she struggled to memorize a few prayers – a task that did not come easy for her.   Her teacher, Sister Mary Clair, was kind and soft spoken but never let up on the children.  She strongly believed this religious instruction was so important that she forged on, with multiple restless children in her classroom.   The day came that my young friend began to wonder about all this memorizing.  Frustrated in her struggle to keep up, she thought if she could just memorize the most […]

A Baby Celebration!

We honour and Bless you.  We give you this Name It was a warm and lazy summer afternoon in July.  A happy group of Parents, Grandparents, God parents, special friends and a bright and lively two-year-old, made their way down to Jericho Beach – a stunning setting in Vancouver.   A gentle ocean breeze barely moved the tree’s leaves, as the festive foods and celebration treats were brought into the site along with decorations to suite our occasion.  We had gathered together for a true Celebration of New Life.  We were about to Bless and Name a precious child – welcome her to the world – give her life-long God Parents – give her loving energy – and offer well-wishes for an enlightened life. A few months prior, this child’s mother contact me.  Wanting […]

Bless you and Bless me too!

6 ways to offer Blessings that may surprise you. It’s a personal and powerful act to offer a blessing to another being.  It’s a generous outpouring of energy, intended for the well-being of others.  Blessings are thoughtful acts of kindness and heart-felt sentiments, wishing to enrich a person’s life, even if it’s only expressed in a single moment. Most of us are familiar with church blessings.  We may ask God to bless our family or our home, or we may thank God for “being blessed” with a happy and healthy life. Being grateful or feeling blessed doesn’t have to be Religious. Blessings are equally meaningful when not affiliated with any religion.  Blessing a couple’s Marriage; saying Grace before supper;  thanking Mother Earth for a bountiful harvest; wishing someone a Happy Day; or giving a […]

Lending a Crafting Hand for a Beautiful Wedding hen it comes to Weddings and making the Wedding Day as special as possible, I will stop at practically nothing….including crafting for my couples. Showcase your Love Story One of my values is to make sure the Wedding Couple has the very best experience. For me, it’s about the fine, carefully planned details, from creating the very best Customized Ceremony, (showcasing their Love story) to the Ceremony-within-a-Ceremony, to the words I use that pronounce them married. I go the extra mile to ensure the success of the day from bringing my own PA system so the bride and groom can be heard exchanging their vows, to lending my ceremonial cloth to cover an ugly table that was front and centre […]

Mr. PresiTrump’s Soul – A Metaphysical Perspective

Physical vs. Metaphysical The current State of the Union seems dismal.  Our 5 senses are being bombarded with negativity.  The physical part that is upsetting the world and, in some cases, bringing out the worst in us.  Instead of being part of a bigger picture (we’re Canadians or we’re Americans) we find ourselves segregated into groups we didn’t think we needed to identify with in 2017.  Women; Blacks; Hispanics; Gays; the list goes on.       Anti-establishment Donald Trump has officially been in power for about 6 weeks.  He just recently gave his first address to the congress as protesters showed up in droves.  The citizens of the United States have been protesting their hearts out – public marches, plaque-carrying crowds in the streets and threats to disrupt his inauguration.  On […]

Top 5 Tips for writing Tip-Top Wedding Vows!

  our friends describe you as a romantic, fun-loving couple.  Your Love Story is romantic and it’s romantic to write your own wedding vows.  It’s part of the ceremony that can truly be your own expression of why you are marrying this most amazing person. As a Celebrant, one of my first questions is “Are you going to write your own vows?” and undoubtedly, the answer is a resounding YES!  …and then comes the blank stare, and the stiffening in the shoulders.  I can just feel their tummy tightening.  No words need to be spoken.  Their body language tells it all…   “I haven’t got a clue how to start!”                 “What am I supposed to say?”                  “How did I […]
