One of the main reasons people find their way to a session with me is because their hara dimension needs some healing. The hara dimension is all about intentionality and soul purpose, and why your soul is embodied on the earth at this time. I emphasize at this time because soul purposes can change throughout one’s life. You might get through a series of lessons or achievements in life and then wham, everything changes. You lose your job, a global pandemic starts (!), a beloved one dies, or some other life-changing thing turns everything upside down. Or it could be that you’re just stuck, lost, not knowing what to do with your life, what direction you’re headed. These are all invitations into hara work and a renewing of your soul purpose.

The hara connects our divinity, with our individuated soul, with our embodied self, and with the earth. Quite the spectrum of energy and vibration to keep flowing smoothly! It’s a very subtle realm and thoughts and intentions and dramatic reactions to life experiences can very easily throw off our flow in this dimension and muddy up the new clarity we need and want for our current soul purpose.

The Japanese concept of ikigai hints at how we also might contemplate our soul purpose. I like this diagram because not only does it show the conjunction of possible avenues into the heart of what your soul desires to learn and do, it also shows what ISN’T your soul purpose. You may be good at many things, but if you don’t love them, there’s no passion (energy) there. And pursuing things just because you’re good at them isn’t going to provide clarity to your purpose or give you the energy you need to keep you going through the inevitable bumps and twists and turns that show up on the human road of life. Likewise, if the world needs something and you know a way that you can get paid to do that thing, but you don’t love it? You’re setting yourself up to bring in martyr/victim energy. And that's not likely to make you feel like you're in love with your life!


Take some time this Spring/Easter/season of renewal, to brainstorm, dream, contemplate:

  • what you love

  • what you’re good at

  • what you can get paid for

  • what the word needs

See if there are any things that check all the boxes that really light your fire and get your passion going, because that will provide the fuel to propel your forward. You might only have an inkling. You might only have a faint idea. No matter, take a small step and let the passion energy keep you going as you adapt, flex, and maybe even hop, skip, and jump into your next soul adventure!


If you need any help on the way, my sessions spend quite a bit of time repairing and strengthening the hara, so you can expand your gifts, find your soul purpose—your ikigai—at this time more easily and even spontaneously!


Clients who’ve had hara work done with me have quickly experienced:

  • sudden desires to go back to school, have done so with new degrees and started new successful careers

  • repairs in their ability to connect with people and new relationships have suddenly begun

  • big shifts in their desire to be here on the planet for the common good rather than escape, hide, or leave

I have a minister friend who begins a lot of services with "Everything's a mess and all is well." These two realities are both true. On the human level, we can experience a lot of messiness. Look at what's happening in Ukraine. What a tragic mess! And yet, anyone who has touched their divine nature, knows that at the divine level, we experience wholeness. As embodied divine human beings, it's complicated because we experience both realities: the daily messes of human emotions, opinions, actions, and relationships and the inner knowing of total and perfect Love, Joy, and Peace. We exist on all levels at once and holding it all in our human awareness at once: the suffering and the joy, can be tricky. I've found I just have to open my heart wider and wider and breathe into and through it all.



Last night, I heard the word "blessiness" as I was somehow able to practice the talk I'm giving tomorrow at Unity of Bellevue, while I was lucid dreaming. I was practicing the part of the talk where I discuss human messiness alongside divine wholeness and the word "blessiness" popped in. We bless the mess in all of the learnings and opportunities it affords for more compassionate understanding of ourselves and others and acting from that place of heightened awareness. And we transmute the mess into divine blessing, knowing that our greater good is always unfolding. The universe has our back and ultimately all is well.


How does your spiritual or energy practice help you with blessiness?

Introducing: The Mystical Clarity Oracle Card Deck

by Lindsay Elvig with Monica McDowell


We are so excited to introduce you to our new oracle card deck! My daughter, Lindsay, designed every card and the two of us wrote the guidebook together. We're launching our kickstarter campaign this Wednesday! Be sure to follow our pre-launch page here to get all the early-bird deal notifications and all the updates on our progress.


Mystical clarity brings you…

…connection to your true nature, your mystical oneness with all that is.

…intuitive knowing, helping you discern the greater path, the bigger truth for you.

…insight as you co-create a loving world with your spiritual team of angels and guides and all of nature as your co-creators.


How to work with our Mystical Clarity Oracle Cards


In our deck you’ll find…

Number Cards

Timing Cards

Season Cards

Pendulum-Type Cards

Guidance Cards

Chakra cards


You can use our Mystical Clarity Oracle Cards completely on their own or in addition to other divination cards or systems. In some oracle card decks, upright v. reverse positions have meanings. In MCOC, some cards have reverse meanings and are noted in our guidebook.


You may use whatever spread and whatever shuffling method you choose. Before you shuffle, just make it clear what spread you intend to use and before you deal, make your questions very specific. If you need to, split the deck into two decks for ease of shuffling. Or you can use the cards by type of card only.


Like what you see? Join our campaign here, then on Wednesday, February 23rd, make a pledge to get your Mystical Oracle Card Deck (plus lots of tiers to choose from!), and look forward to enjoying the Universe’s messages to you! And please spread the word, so we meet our goal!
