Nature Realm Portal Debut!

Welcome to the Nature Realm Portal!


I am so happy and relieved that the Nature Realm Portal website and online shop are finally finished - right before Mercury Retrograde that starts today! Thank you Norm Kraft for your tech wizardry! 

This concept for this site was born around the Yule holiday of 2022. After contracting Covid early in February 2020, my life was altered forever! Between the long haul symptoms and the shut down, i was forced to close my veterinary acupuncture practice Four Paws Acupuncture. I was no longer able to physically work on dogs - get on or off the floor without help or drive. I spent my time writing books and creating online classes for people and their pets. 

It is no secret that i am wooie wooie! Some things you just can't hide as you get older. I wanted to bring more magic and whimsy into my life and work. My latest online class Faeries, Nature Spirits and the Elemental Realm helped inspire the name and look for this new site. It took over a year to create, research and produce. This class gave me an appreciation for the magic of nature and the unseen realm that we take for granted. 

Practical Magic Salem, my online art & jewelry shop site developed problems working. It was in perpetual Mercury Retrograde! And it needed an upgrade. 

So the idea to combine both businesses into one site was hatched. Four Paws Acupuncture is now part of the Nature Realm Portal. Although i am still not physically able to treat dogs for now, Starting in October, i am once again offering Barking Zoom TCM herbal, nutritional & acupressure consultations. 

Along with the Barking Zoom Consultations, i will also be offering Flora Fauna & Fae Oracle readings, using the animal Medicine Cards along with a few fairy and flower oracle cards. I have been using the Medicine Cards for over 30 years every day for inspiration. 

The Practical Magic Salem online shop has a new name and look! To make life easy, it is now hosted on Etsy. The one thing that has become very clear to me over the past year is to keep it simple. Life is too short to do battle with websites, especially for those of us who are not tech savvy or developers! 

A proper launch of the Nature Realm Portal will be celebrated after Mercury goes direct in October. At this time, i am battling what may be another round of Covid or some related cootie that has knocked me off my ...... and  forced me to once again ponder, reflect and meditate on what really matters in life. 

It has been quite the year for all of us on this planet! Wishing all a peaceful and magical Harvest Full Moon!

Sending love and sparkles,
