With Every Ending is a New Beginning

It was with surprise and a little sadness that I read an email from my editor that my column will no longer be a part of the Bali Advertiser, due to the need to take the newspaper in a new direction. It was a gracious goodbye with sincere thanks and appreciation for all the wonderful columns I have written over the past eight years. What a journey it has been! I have shared some deep thoughts and feelings with all of you with the hope that my insights might inspire and open you up to your greatness. In my columns, I often included many tools for self healing and empowerment. It has been an honor to share these tools with all of you, because I believe that even if I touched just one person’s life, I have made a contribution to humanity through this column.

As my editor said, “It’s time for change.” Sometimes when we don’t take that leap the Universe does it for us! While I have truly loved writing this column, deep in my soul I knew that I needed to demand more of myself — to stretch even further with my desire to help others embrace their sovereignty. A part of me was scared to take this deep dive, so I held myself back by staying in the comfort zone of writing for the Bali Advertiser because it was safe and easy. The cosmic joke was on me. As I tuned into my higher self shortly after I received the email, she told me clearly, “Yes, it’s time for you to expand out into the world with your blog and YouTube channel; this is part of your mission, Michele. You can’t avoid it any longer.” Her message was delivered softly but firmly. I love that about my higher self and feel so grateful that she has my back.

So this last column isn’t really about saying goodbye, because I’ll still be writing on my website blog. For those of you who have truly enjoyed following this column, I invite you to follow me on my blog here: https://spiritweaverjourneys.com/category/blog/

I will be writing weekly blogs about a variety of topics with a focus on alternative healing methods, Spiritual practices for self healing and empowerment and much more. I’m truly excited about this new direction and I can honestly say I’m grateful to my former editor for ending my column, as this opens the door for me to expand my gifts and knowledge into the world in ways that weren’t possible before.

In addition to my weekly blogs, for the first time ever, I’ll be sharing channeled messages from my team and Higher Self on my YouTube channel. I have been guided that it’s time for me to have a more global presence. From time to time I will also be interviewing experts in the field of Alternative healing and spirituality, who will share their wisdom, healing journeys and much more.

There are already some great videos with lots of wonderful healing tools and knowledge that I think you’ll enjoy and greatly benefit from. Please be sure to subscribe so you can get notifications about my new uploads. I’m super excited by this new direction and feel that I can offer all of you so much more with these alternative mediums.

I’d like to thank my editor for giving me eight great years to write my Pathways to Healing the Mind, Body & Spirit column, along with my previous columns. I am amazed by how quickly the time has flown by. I hope the Bali Advertiser will continue to thrive as it takes a new direction. I have always enjoyed the great articles, columns and browsing through the ads for second hand items and other services.

I especially want to thank all of the readers who have faithfully followed my column. I don’t know who all of you are, but I would love to hear from some of you! Please feel free to connect with me at: mcempaka@gmail.com and share your thoughts about the column or whatever is on your mind. If you are a healing practitioner, Life Coach or someone with a great story to tell, perhaps you can be the subject of my blog or someone I interview for my YouTube channel?

Strangely, as I come to the end of my last column, I feel a lightness in my heart. I know without a doubt, that the Universe has a plan for me that will be even greater than I can possibly imagine. I can’t wait to find out what that is. I look forward to our continued journey together in a whole new way.

I’d like to leave you with these wise words passed down from White Buffalo Calf Woman:


Lakota Instructions for Living

Friend do it this way – that is,

whatever you do in life,

do the very best you can

with both your heart and mind.


And if you do it that way,

the Power Of The Universe

will come to your assistance,

if your heart and mind are in Unity.


When one sits in the Hoop Of The People,

one must be responsible because

All of Creation is related.

And the hurt of one is the hurt of all.

And the honor of one is the honor of all.

And whatever we do effects everything in the universe.


If you do it that way – that is,

if you truly join your heart and mind

as One – whatever you ask for,

that’s the Way It’s Going To Be.
