A Sweet Encounter

I was meeting a friend for dinner the other evening and as I was going in, a nice elderly man was coming out. He stopped for a second, holding on to his cane. He said, “You have two things going on with you today.”

I smiled not quite grasping where he was going with that.

“Your dress and your smile.”

I smiled wider, ear to ear. He smiled and I hugged him. I could smell his memories in an instant, his hand gently touching mine. I could feel his youth pouring out of his heart. I sensed a loss and sadness that, for a moment, it all brought tears to my eyes. No real exchange followed but a gratitude for his words.
I am great at handing out compliments, but it’s not always easy for me to receive, especially from a man.
The thing is that the moment he said it, about the smile, I felt a crack in my heart. I knew I reminded him of someone. I felt his heart beat against mine when I hugged him.

It was a brief encounter. The best ones usually are because they linger without pretenses. They are real and authentic.

You never know how you touch someone. You never know how one softhearted look can help another feel seen. And words… ah, those words full of kindness and love always reach the core of our existence.
I love you. Be gentle with you and spread that love like wild fire all around you.

Change of name…

For several years, this page has evolved from a Mystical Journey into a Sacred Journey. It was a forum to share my blog and stories from all walks of life. In the last year the page has become more of an inspirational page to help raise the vibrations of social media and negativity. Along my own personal journey I have evolved as well. I have received clarity in what I am suppose to be sharing and writing. Recently, I opened up a business under “Sacred Journey” where I can do intuitive counseling and help others in their journey.

But I am also a Story Tender.

What’s a Story Tender you might be wondering?

It’s sharing sacred space with someone as they share their stories. Those who are stuck and need a little nudge, I can help light the way. I take their stories, old programming and beliefs, and help them reorganize their thoughts. I help facilitate the doubts, hurt, and other traumas while turning them into empowering opportunities. Basically, I am a love cheerleader helping others navigate through the muck into their own inner beauty and strength. Just like the lotus flower, we all have the willingness and determination to be the best version of ourselves while birthing in the darkest of moments.

Sometimes we just need a little help. We need to connect with another and recognize that we are not alone on this journey. That’s the sacred journey for me…to be available to meet others wherever they are at.

Currently I have a web designer working on my professional website to offer services, retreats, workshops and one-on-one sessions. I’m excited for what’s coming up and the endless possibilities of meeting amazing souls.

Thank you for sticking with me as I, too, emerge into my authentic self… filled through love and grace. The collective is shifting and we need all the help we can get at this time. We are one. Mucho love!!!

Intuitive Counseling & Story Tender


I am finally embracing who I am. It’s been a long road! This is a huge goal in my life. I dislike labels but I accept that society needs them to understand who and what we are. If you have been following this page I must assume you know I don’t do conventional paradigms. I am an observer of humanity. I have to add something in the cards in order for folks to figure out what I am offering.

People ask me all the time for an explanation to how I receive intuitive information. I don’t have an answer. I just listen. I am not a psychic. I’m not a “Medium” (I am a large). I might get a visitation from an ancestor but that’s not always the case. I cannot foretell your future, but I can help you intuitively find what you want in your future by tapping into your goals. You have all the answers. You forget you have them. I can help you gather and release the things that might be blocking you. We can do it together, mapping out a direction. When we examine the past we are often left with patterns. These patterns tell us a lot about our decision-making skills and choices.

I can help you find the dot in the horizon that’s been missing for some time. Often times we just need another perspective. This is why we go to therapists and use other healing modalities. We get lost in our little heads replaying the same stories.

I am a Story Tender. You tell me your story and I can help you create a new one.

Sometimes our stories cripple us. Past programming and circumstances stump our mental capacity to move forward. We may become victims of the past.  We get pulled by labels and allow others to dictate our worth. By looking at what has brought you here we can work together to create new healthy stories, or at least rewrite some lovely chapters.

For most of my life strangers find me. They have sat in waiting rooms, check-out aisles, gas stations, airplanes, motels, trains, streets, restaurants, coffee shops, and countless other places to share their stories. They don’t know why they share what they do but they feel better because of the conversations. We connect through them. I evolve through their words and hopefully they have taken some of mine to heart.

We all want to be heard, seen and loved. Sometimes we just need to remember how loving we are.

I have to admit this is really, really, really hard for me to market myself. I am used to having folks come to me by word of mouth or referral. It’s hard to put what I do into words because each client is different. I don’t want to use the word “coaching” because it sounds as if I might be leading. I am a huge cheerleader. That is more of what I do. I want to cheer you on and help you find the joy you deserve. We all need cheerleaders in our lives!

I would love the opportunity to help you on this journey. Please email me to dharma.1111@hotmail.com for more information on services. Or you can call and me at 828-707-8897.

Mucho love…Millie
