I am that, thou art that, all this is that

“All This is That” – the Beach Boys

I’ve never met Joe LoBrutto Psychic Medium in person. A year ago, something told me I may be crossing paths with him and to be ready. So I got my baseball bat and waited. Then I realized that voice inside my head was telling that this was a good man and not to be frightened. Soon I would start to see his name at random events and times. The voices again were telling me to reach out to him, that he was on to something.  Big.  I went by his website and left a comment.

Since then, we have spoken many times and I have even been on his radio show.  It was great meeting and talking with another male intuitive, especially one with his heart in the heavens and his butt on the ground.

Joe said he had a book coming out and he would send me one.

I just received  “Is There More to Life Than What We Know?”. This book is more than a “How to”  (although there are excellent tips and exercises to improve intuition). The writings  are a platform for Joe’s ” Spirit Guides” to bring messages of hope and peace in a way that’s  beautifully easy to understand.

The world is changing and the story of this book is how to best prepare for the earthly and spiritual events ahead. These guides (my favorite is the humorous ,Celtic spirit named Patrick who teaches that laughter raises our vibrations) give us insight to heaven, life after death, angels, extraterrestrials, and Jesus. There is no doubt that LoBrutto has tapped into guidance greater than himself  and does a great job of  showing us the ups and downs of finding that guidance. The book is an enjoyable read…kind of like riding in the car with a friend while he tells stories of places you’ve never been and can’t wait to get there!

Thanks again Joe for my signed copy of the book. It now serves as an educational tome that I utilize with my clients. The book reminds me of how important trust is in this line of  work. I’m learning to trust my guides much more these days….

The book is available at Amazon.com

Here is a rare video of Joe in action…

(It has always been my belief that we are all connected. After receiving this from a recent client I thought it would be something to share.) -RW



If you had talked to me 10 years ago about past life regression I would have looked at you like you had 3 heads. What the heck is that?

Recently, I found out just “what it is” in a session that I thought was going to be just a reading/mediumship. Oh boy, did it get good.

So what the heck is it? Wikipedia says past life regression is a technique that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations. Okay, so basically you get hypnotized and remember who you were before this life you’re living now. That’s just ridiculous…you can’t remember what happened 1000 years ago. Or is it ridiculous? Read on…

I arrive at Rick’s office for my session and we shoot the shit for about 10 minutes. Without warning he says, “Your friend Mike, did he have something wrong with his heart?” Why yes he did, in fact, that is precisely how he died. He was sort of on borrowed time having had trouble with his heart in the past. Mike was finally living his life the way he wanted, on the coast of California. Just when life seemed to be going so well for him, he suddenly passed away. “Mike’s here,” Rick said. That made me smile. I had been thinking of him constantly and he was showing up in my dreams. After reading “They’re Not Gone” by A.P. Morris, I knew that if you can’t get someone out of your head that has passed on they probably have a message for you. Needless to say, I wasn’t surprised to hear he was there and happy for his presence. Then Rick started saying more names of people that were coming through. Describing who they were and how they died. He told me it seemed like the spirits wanted to use me as a messenger. I’m no stranger to readings from Rick so I expected all of this, but what I didn’t expect was what happened next.

“How much coffee you had this morning,” Rick asked.

“Wow, that’s an off the wall question,” I thought to myself.

Happily I replied, “Only one cup.”

“Good, close your eyes and try to relax,” he said.

The next 35 minutes (which felt like 15) were amazing, interesting, enlightening, and above all, like a door way had just opened for me. Through guided meditation Rick brought me to my 21st birthday, then 16th birthday, then 10th, 3rd, 2nd and so on. We got to the day I was born where I saw myself being placed immediately on the left side of my mothers chest after birth. The doctor was at the foot of the bed and my father to her left (amazingly verifiable from my mother later that night). He took me back further and further. My body felt relaxed and motionless. I could hear Rick asking questions and I would immediately answer him like someone else was talking for me. There was virtually no thought in the things I was saying. The first thing that popped in my mind rolled off my tongue. Now I can’t remember everything (which is very common for hypnosis), but one of the things I do remember is seeing a man surrounded by fire and I was standing off to the side just watching. I felt like a little girl and he was my father.  As he asked more questions the answers came. One after another the information kept flowing with ease.

“What year is it?” he asked.

“1879,” I replied.

“Where are you?” he asked.

“Peru,” I replied.

I also remember saying things like “Knowledge is key” and “Learn love and joy.”

Now I hear Rick tapping one finger, then 2. My eyes slowly opening like they had been glued shut. I hear 3 fingers tapping, 4 fingers tapping, the sounds in the room, then bam…my eyes opened. Wow! That was fascinating! Rick and I sit for a moment and take time to process what had just occurred.

Throughout the session, I discovered that I am a “channel” and that is why Rick and I are together again. He’s helping to hone my intuition. Possibly that’s why so many spirits wanted me to be their messenger. People were coming through that I had no relation to and I couldn’t understand their messages. From reading A.P. Morris’ book I know that spirits tend to group together. If you have a connection with someone in this life, chances are you had a connection with them in another life. After having had a past life regression I am now more open to the connections I have with the people that surround me. Pondering if, how well, and how long I knew them before. Guess it could be hundreds or even thousands of years!

‎”The road to abundance is a happy one. If you’re not laughing pull the hell over…” -RW


Many years ago I was sitting in the back of a Greyhound bus on my way to Richmond, Virginia, to visit a friend.  At that point in my life, I was jobless as well as careless and felt that I’d pretty much lost everything.  All I had at that point was a copy of Norman Vincent Peale’s book “The Power of Positive Thinking”.  While reading the book I started to realize my thoughts were negative, needy and unfocused.  Most days they were, “Why isn’t this happening for me” or “I don’t have enough” and “Why does everybody else have more?”  My driver’s license said Rick, but it should have said VICTIM. It was everybody else’s fault.  It was my location.  It was my girlfriend.  It was my job.  It was my boss.  It was my cat (I’m so glad I got rid of that cat).  Reading the book helped me to see that my thoughts were the foundation of my life.  If my life sucked it was because I fundamentally believed it did.  If I said to myself, “I’m never going to find the right person,” that’s exactly what would happen.  Why am I always so bored?

The next day my car broke down.  I thought I was acknowledging reality, but it never occurred to me that I was creating that reality.  Slowly I started to turn my thoughts to ones of aspiration, abundance and joy.  As corny as this may sound I had to learn that happiness is the soil of any abundance garden and that I had to be happy before I could grow abundance, prosperity and joy. Not to mention it put me in a much better  mood.  Another lesson I had to learn was to allow others in my life to be as unhappy and nasty as they needed to be.  I didn’t have to participate with that bad behavior.  That didn’t mean I woke up in a good mood all of the time or that I didn’t ever get angry at myself.  But I committed to memory that in that moment maybe I needed to listen to a great song or watch a funny Youtube clip.  Whatever it would take to turn my attitude around is what I did.  Doing it on my own wasn’t going to work either. 

I decided to surround myself with people I wanted to emulate and that were happy with their lives.  Then I’d quite simply ask them how they did it.  People that are experiencing joy and abundance are usually very happy to share their story with you!  Many of them taught me to focus on how to do something instead of finding ways not to. My words had real power.  I have never forgotten that.   My old vocabulary consisted of words like can’t, don’t know and scared.  I have new words.  Will, show me the way and passion.

The true power of positive thinking has brought me to a place that, at one time, I thought I’d never get to.   G-R-A-T-I-T-U-D-E.  I am now grateful for it all – my mistakes, financial woes, and everything that brought me to this point.

From gratitude grows passion and with passion you can do ANYTHING!

You know,you know you are
Be still and know you are
Your life is meant for joy
It’s all so deep within, oh


Your life is beautiful
A seed becomes a tree
A mountain into a sky
This life is meant to be, oh

“Be Still” – The Beach Boys

I don’t know about you, but when things aren’t going my way I try everything in my arsenal of self help; mantras, books, meditations, and affirmations. Usually they work, when they don’t I want to slam my forehead into my well used copy of the “The Secret.” It doesn’t occur to me that patience with myself is one of the most efficient paths to stress reduction that I know.

I am one of those people that believes that coming up with solutions is better than complaining and whining any time. My problem is that I don’t suffer well. I expect solutions to come instantaneously and the problem with that is I am really not listening.

God has a great way of answering questions, it is pretty simplistic. Yes, no, and wait. The last part is the toughest because it requires faith. Thinking positively is pretty useless without faith. My dog Angel has plenty of faith, she knows that when you say “treat” we’re going to give her a little snack. She doesn’t worry about what kind of snack or if it is a big enough snack. Me on the other hand, worries how many snacks, will I get enough snacks, and if they are organic. All that worrying has gotten me nowhere. My stepdaughter also has non-complicated tools for dealing with this type of stress, it is called play. Kids can find joy in staring at a bug, coloring a picture, or singing to themselves. In these moments Cassandra is the perfect picture of self-awareness and joy.

So for today, I think I will go have a snack and sing to myself ( I don’t care if the snack is organic).

Listen to the voices loud and clear
Come on folks, withstand your fear
Celebrate the joys, it’s yours to choose
Celebrate the news
There ain’t no blues

“Celebrate the News”- The Beach Boys

When Melissa Finocchiaro decided to join the Wood Massott Center I asked her why she wanted to heal. What motivated her? Why do this? The answer was moving and heartwarming. Geri and myself are happy to have her aboard. But allow me to have Melissa talk about her journey and her Thai Yoga practice…

I’ ve always knew I wanted to be a healer from the time I was a little girl

whether I was helping injured birds, or offering a kind word to someone in distress—I knew that I wanted to help, to heal, and to nurture.

In college I bounced around with my major, starting with psychology, contemplating english, and then finally settling into art therapy.

I recall doing an internship that involved painting a large scale wall mural with mentally ill patients. This was a humorous, challenging, and at times eye opening experience. I witnessed a man who could barely speak, paralyzed from the waist down, and with limited mobility in his arms, paint an amazing landscape of a holy city ( Jerusalem perhaps) complete with a brilliant sunset, set against, mountains with crosses set on top of them. I was so taken aback, that this man who honestly I thought, I was going to have to hold his hand through the whole project, teaching me the meaning of not judging a book by its cover. This project was so therapeutic for him, allowing him to release all that vitality and pent up creativity.

Melissa has been doing massage and reiki for over 5 years, and has developed a massage style which incorporates the deep stretches and compressions of a thai yoga massage, with reiki healing, and a classic swedish massage. This massage may sound adventurous but its actually very relaxing and therapeutic. Combining all three really takes the healing to a deeper level. So you have your classic long swedish strokes, combined with gentle yet profound stretches ( always going with the clients breath), and she throws a bit of reiki in there, intuitively working on whichever chakra is calling me. All in all, this creates a true mind, body, and soul, blissfull experience.

This therapy can be done in either 60 or 90 minute intervals. Call 302-373-7720 to set up an appointment at The Wood Massott Holistic Center in Berwyn, PA.

“Now is the time life begins
Take that simple path
And love will set you free
Live in harmony
And love will set you free”- “Be Still” -Dennis Wilson

What are Chakra’s? Chakra’s are energy centers that we have all over and around our bodies. They are spinning wheels that keep our center’s open and our energy flowing. This keeps us balanced and healthy. When our chakra’s are off- balanced or blocked we can have problems is our life. To keep it simple: we have seven main chakra’s on our physical body.

The 1st is our base chakra. It’s color is red and it represents  our physical world, our personality, self expression, security and survival. The 2nd is our Sacral Chakra. It’s color is orange and it represents sexual energy, creative and pure emotions, feelings. The 3rd is our Solar Plexus Chakra. It’s color is Yellow and it represents wishes, desires, this is where our personality is formed. This is also where the bridge between our higher and lower aspects of ourselves meet. The 4th is our Heart Chakra. It’s color is green and it represents our ability to love, and have an appreciation of art or music.This is also where healing is done. Our heart is the center of our body. It also is the 1st Spiritual Chakra. The 5th is our Throat Chakra. It’s color is blue and it represents our expression of laughter, speech, weeping. All sounds on both the physical and metaphysical levels. It allows us to express emotions and feelings. The 6th Chakra is our Third Eye. It’s color is Indigo and it connects us to Spirit and other worlds. It is God intuition. The 7th is our Crown Chakra. It’s color is Violet, White, Gold and it represents our connections to the Universe. It gives us guidance and knowledge beyond words or intellect.

What I am working to do is connecting and aligning our Chakra’s so that we can tap into our Divine Purpose and Guidance. That is why I try to incorporate Chakra balancing in my practice. This helps us understand our minds, our bodies and our souls. Eastern cultures treat our Spiritual body with our Physical body in the healing of illness and the Ancients treated our Spiritual body before the Physical body.  I just feel that illness and dis-ease starts as an emotion that can be address before we get sick. Use your inner guidance and see if this rings true for you.

Many Thanks To Geri Massott for writing this post …Geri and Rick Wood have joined forces and are opening The Wood Massott Holistic Center in June.
