Meditate Like A Boss! Monday 8 Minute Meditation Miko Style with Fantasy Music

Relieve. Restore. Bask. Meditation Miko-Style. Join me in raising our planet's frequency heart by heart.
Starting with an easy 8-minute meditation on YouTube – and let’s see where we go from here <3

I’m known in small circles for my varied approach to meditation. The idea is to be present with a flow of thought and emotion – AND to make it easy for myself to find this place of flow.

My vision is to create meditation circles online starting with sharing some of my favorites online – I invite you to join me in raising the energetic vibration of our world. Lofty goal maybe, but as Steve Jobs said in that famous Think Different ad, the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. 

So, this is the second step on a crazy (in the best way!) journey – the first step was to share on Facebook with my friends, along with some Oracle card readings which I hope to bring here next. I’m excited – I hope you are too. (The third step will be to share it on my YouTube Channel :D.)

For today and this week – and whenever you like it! – here is a lovely piece of music to meditate to: Fantasy Music Lumina

Click the link to get whisked away to a relaxing beautiful tune that I use as an 8-minute meditation 🧘🏻‍♀️ I found intuitively on YouTube. 

What to do with yourself while you listen? Develop your own style of course, but here is a Miko style seated or laying down meditation if you want to play with these ideas and make them your own:

💙 Get comfy, spine long so peaceful communications easily run up and down its length

💙 Smile on your heart with your mind (let it smile back)

💙 Listen to the sound of your own breath and relax into its rhythm – that is the rhythm of your life my friend.

💙 Meditate (focus) on the passing of thoughts across your mind’s eye, and the blessing of breath, send that feeling out to everyone you know and love.

💙 Everything flows, the good, bad, ugly, beautiful – you are the observer and the source of blessing, a conduit through which life expresses original creation.

💙 Savor your sense of being! Sit still while the dogs of busyness tug at the leash of your attention. Remember, you are the leader of the pack of your attention. 🐺


Simple as that! I am looking forward to sharing more – I hope you enjoy it.

Wishing you meaningful meditations always <3,

Surprise Aura Reading & Plate Balancing #health #update #amwriting #pictures

Tuesday I did triple health duty – psychiatrist office for the monthly visit plus meeting with my BST/PSR (basic skills trainer, psychosocial rehab person) – a weekly thing.

A good support team is essential!  

I had the dr office all to myself. We were in and out and had some time so a coffee shop ‘twas to work on my list of things with my awesome BST/PSR.

Surprises awaited. I know, spoiler. But I get excited when the big U(niverse) leaves

delightful experiences for me to discover.

So, cafe Americano with room for cream in hand – as we looked for a table an Asian woman in a nice beige sweater and jeans approached me and asked if I wanted a free aura reading.

Does Miko want a free aura reading? Does the sun shine?! Lol.

There was a sign up for free aura reading, a machine where you put your hands (for bio feedback), and a laptop. I sat at the coffee bar and put my hands on the machine.

Here are the pics.

Check out the pie chart.  

Next I learned about plate balancing – but with a book. Figure 8 motion to balance left and right brain and open up the upper body. Left and right. Creek! 🙂 I am still getting to know my new body. I love this exercise.

I asked if I could see how the exercise changed my aura with a second reading.

Green and check out the pie chart: Balance! Yay!

Inspired, my trainer and I went to find a nice table and finish my session. I’ve been wanting to add breast cancer resources to my blog but found it very difficult to focus, I’d get overwhelmed and stuck in whats-happening-land. #hittingthatwall

It’s getting better. I pulled out my Dang Thang orange notebook and pencil on the nice table we found outside and made an outline with a little help over the hump. Easy peasy Japanesey. 🙂

Mandalay Bay ~ Las Vegas ~ Response from a Trauma & Breast Cancer Survivor, Martial Artist, Writer and Editor by trade #teamrubicon #streetteam #loveinaction

My heart and body shake with compassion for the people who are suffering.

Anger, rage, fury, disassociation… depression, confusion – these are some of the feelings that come to mind.

When the heart is in trauma, the body is in trauma. At some point that energy has to be expressed.

We decide how we respond. We have that power. At some point, someone has to say Enough.

(Please forgive my terminology and jargon now, I will try to speak as clearly as I can in writing.) 

Yesterday I went to a mastermind meeting I had been to before. I was hoping to see what was going on for business and how I could help.

Instead, we talked about the Elephant in the Room – in this case, the Mandalay Bay shooting. I felt it became “inappropriate” – because we gave space during this time of trauma to an old wound. I am sorry but I think this is a kind of selfishness that contributes to tragedy.

Right now in my life, I do not have time to think about what happened before today. I take it into consideration because I am a considerate individual. HOWEVER – I also need a place to stay and food to eat so I don’t die. If YOU cannot take that into consideration, then I cannot take you into consideration. Do you understand that?

Safe places and snowflakes. Ok, first off – how dare people use beautiful unique snowflakes in a rude way. Check your spirit before you speak. Personally, I am going to start my own Snowflake Society – perhaps virtual – to address the Real Real Snowflakes.

To me, this is a beautiful snowy day maybe like happened in the movie A White Christmas, where a bunch of soldiers and vets got together to honor their leader.

I would like to make safe places for those who are actively helping TODAY. I would like to provide them with food, support, and focused action utilizing all the skills I have and my own understanding of being in SURVIVAL MODE which is a state that can be experienced by all races and all species.

We make spaces by looking for commonality – not by looking for differences.

We make safe spaces by looking for strength – first in ourselves and then in others.

We make safe spaces when people have good food, good sleep and a place where we can share hugs and laughter, which will heal us.

Make your own safe space – and see how many people support you. If not, maybe it’s time to change the approach. That is true mastery – and strategy – adapting to the situation with the insight of how humanity responds.

Whatever entity is responsible – be it a sole human which I find unlikely but possible – do you think they knew how people would respond to a mass shooting?

Why did they do it anyway?

Get inside their head if you can – otherwise get inside your heart and use the resources of your own body and humanity to be the change you seek in the world.

Humility right now is power. Knowledge is power. Control is not power. Control is an illusion and it is a weakness to demand it of others instead of excercising your own ability to change.

Many people died. Their families are grieving. People are helping. This is not about my cancer survival right now – this is not about the fact that I am not sure where I am going to live by the weekend. I don’t have things I thought I had. I don’t have friends I thought I had.

But I am alive, mofos! I am alive and shaking and I have a heart. The heart inspires the mind, the stomach helps out, and the body benefits.

In trauma, when fight or flight is triggered, or sometimes freeze – the response that is most effective in my understanding is one that comes first with understanding and curiosity, followed by thoughtful communication and most of all LISTENING.

If you need others to make a safe space for you, I recommend therapy. I have gone for several years and I am at the point now that the things that used to make me tremble now don’t even bother me. This is healing.

You want a safe space? Therapy creates one for you. Outpatient group therapy. One on one therapy. Don’t like the stigma of therapy? Don’t feel you need it? All the most successful warriors and victors and advocates have their own coaches and their own support team made of humans who understand them and respect their abilities.

Respect is key. Everything else is blah blah blah at a time like this. Be human or you are being everything you hate and you don’t even know it which means you are NOT in control of YOURSELF.

To demand that safe spaces be afforded is the type of thinking that leads to shit like this. It starts with you. For me it starts with me. The fact that you can google gender pronoun conversations and confusion right now on the Internet means on some level we are in a HUGE identity crisis.

We have to change ourselves by creating that safe space within – and then sharing it with those who respect us. Respect. Love for yourself. Love like no one else does. Not with words but with heart. With your own beating heart.

Statistics are numbers. If you are doing research from a place whose intel is compromised, what does that say about your findings?

Who guards the guards? People guard the guards. Respect guards the guards. Love guards the guards. And then the guards can guard who is worthy guarding.

In times of trauma you have to make new decisions. If you have been through it, you have experiental knowledge that does not come from research but it comes from life.

The strength of the individual and the family is important now. Check yourself. Ask yourself if you are doing the best thing you can be doing right now for humanity.

We have a big problem where we try to protect others who feel victimized instead of referring them to proper help. People need to be more human focused – THAT IS THE KEY.

If you can’t accept it, then I feel we disagree on the definitions and principles of some pretty big issues like knowledge, power, control, surrender, submission, and a lot of things that you learn when you say…

Hey, maybe I am that safe space. Or,

Hey, maybe this is not the safe space for me.

Be part of the change – don’t make this about you.

Defending victims is not helpful. It just reveals that you have areas of your own life that you have not healed because you are joining them in creating a safe space by demanding that others gift you their time and their curiosity and their skills.

We are the human race. I put humanity above petty conversations in times when I forget how to breathe. Otherwise I would not be here today.

To suggest that other people don’t know about your own history is to suggest that you are ignorant of theirs. Takes two to tango and if you are resting on history to fuel your own comfort, you are not a safe space as far as I am concerned.

Scared people, hurt people, people in denial, people who do not know how to wait, how to be patient, who are not built for things they have been made to do,

They still have a choice even if they gave it up. Every minute you have a choice. Don’t hold us back by shielding yourself with trauma of the past.

How about, wow, I have never been in this situation. I am going to do something. What can I do? What can I change that might make things better for the circle I am a part of right now.

You be the safe space or go get help. We have to do this for ourselves and if we are committed to friendship, let us be first committed to humanity and to life.

It is not the time to bring up another morbid situation. It is time to soothe and comfort yourself in such a way that you are a blessing to society not just another damn drag.

Wake up people. Your words reveal what you do not see. Media is included. You are spouting your ignorance all the time and that is how people know when is a good time to do evil things.

Watch your words. Watch your heart. I send love and forgiveness. If you cannot forgive people because they know not what they do, maybe your value are not as Christlike as you think.

If you spend more time on the media than on your soul, your ballast must be outside of you. That’s how I see it.

I support knowledge and strengthening individuals, families and communities.
I support awareness. I support #TeamRubicon as a knowledge sharer until I can do more.


I DO NOT support the concept of safe spaces. That is a great way to gather a bunch of people to get shot and just make the case worse. What is everyone going to do? Think about it like your opponent. Be your opponent’s opponent. Fight with finesse if you must – and be prepared to heal and rebuild after the destruction. STOP TALKING about what you hate. It’s not safe. 

NOTE: This message is not for everyone. I trust that you will exercise your right to choose as a human being – and to respect that others can choose too. Work from there and you will go from frightened and debilitated, to finding the center inside that you never knew, and flipping on the switch for others too. Here’s the switch to self defense, protection and care.

I love you.

LOVE – That’s where we start. If you are on board, follow me for actual solutions. My team. My game. My rules. You want to have that ability? That knowledge? I create safe spaces in difficult places. I start with Me. If you start with you, we can talk. 

Get a good grasp on your understanding of LOVE – it is not romance and sex and pleasure only. It is insight, understanding, compassion, humility, adaptility and it is raw and real and will kick your assets to help you.)

Here are some resources I think will help with mindset. I get no kickback for this.

Team Rubicon – Street Team Tools – Civilian Response

Follow me on social media of your choice if you want to help yourself and those you love. Imposing on people you don’t know to listen to your bad story when we have enough other stories is a display of ignorance that I think needs to go to the mental health clinic or find a therapist and I say that with passion of one who has found help in a hopeless place. Not only help, but love. LOVE. That is where we start. Otherwise we are blind.)

If you would like me to come and speak, or help in any way – please start by joining team rubicon. I share their values of knowledge and action. We will create safe spaces by being the safe spaces.

PPS: I beat cancer. I have another chance at life. I will honor those who have passed by making sure they are remebered for their goodness. Let the evil fall away. Stop giving love to evil unless you know what evil is like and are prepared to act. Otherwise, you owe it to yourself and to everyone else to get help. Be healthy. Be loving. Know what love and health mean.
