  1. I appreciate hearing about the role the Angel Oak has played in your life. It’s a timely reminder for me to continue to connect with nature; and perhaps to take the short drive to the Angel Oak.

    I’ve found learning Trinity Energy Progression has been helpful in really getting me to meditate on a more regular basis. On fairies and wood nymphs … I know they are real.

    Hugs,
    Laurel <3 <3

  2. Ann, I am SO HAPPY for you! As a child, I used to play on and climb that beautiful ANGEL OAK TREE!
    My hometown is Charleston, SC and we used to go to John’s Island (where the Angel Oak is located) just to climb the tree! WHAT FUN IT WAS!!!
    I also went to St. John’s Episcopal Church on John’s Island for several years! I have wonderful memories of John’s Island…..I used to meditate in the church’s parking lot often. John’s Island is so beautiful ! I so very happy that you have shared your story of blessings, release, and freedom for your body, soul and spirit! I have experienced a freedom that I never thought was possible…but I am finally FREE and feel truly BLESSED! Thank you for sharing your very special awakening! God Bless You! Love, Fran

  3. Lovely Ann, that’s a tree I want in my yard. I enjoyed reading.

  4. Thanks for reading, I appreciate your kind words.

  5. Thanks for reading.

  6. I appreciate your kind comments.

  7. Thank you.

  8. THank you for writing.

  9. I’ve known Ann for a number of years, and have been and continue to be honored to be one of those accompanying her on her spiritual journey as she’s been blossoming into her full authentic Self (as I have stepped into mine, too)!

    Ann is caring, personable, and very intuitive; she easily connects with others heart-to-heart, and sees and cares about the whole picture and helping others to change their outlook, change their perspective, and shift into a place of empowerment and truly enjoying their life! She always goes the extra mile and for others… and is powerful in accessing Divine frequencies to aid an individual in creating the life they truly desire.

    I highly recommend Ann… she is a gem, and a beautiful, beauitful soul!

  10. “The guided meditation was great! I don’t think I thought from work or anywhere else entered my mind while I was doing the meditation. The Reiki was fantastic especially the part that was helping to heal my back.”

  11. Ann is my sister and a very special person. She recently conducted the ceremony of wedding vowel renewal for me and my husband, Jack. We have been married 36 years, and the ceremony she prepared was such a compliment to our life together and the support of our family moving forward. Ann is a very caring person and will work hard to make sure every ceremony she conducts special and fitting for the couples involved.

  12. Love this post Ann!! What you shared is exactly I named the boat, “WHY KNOT?” …sometimes, you just gotta do it b/c you might look back and wonder why you didn’t!! Thanks for sharing!

  13. You have such great experiences around all of this… and it’s been so awesome to watch you step into your own power! What a great testimony to the power of energy healing, even in integration with Western medicine!

  14. Love this post, and this photo! You have a gift for connecting people Ann, and we are all the richer for it! You’ve done a great job of representing Raleigh and all the local cultures/neighborhoods here in the triangle.

  15. I am blessed by your friendship.

  16. Saw you again at Dawn Raxter’s party – she can’t come tonight – gone to her Mother’s

    I’m not feeling good – took a sick day from work. maybe see you next week, or in 2 weeks.

    in peace, Denise

  17. I am sorry you could not come. The next one is Wednesday, January 20 at 8 pm. I hope that will fit into your schedule.

  18. Love this, Ann .. Sharing .. Such a hopeful view of what we refer to as “death” <3 <3

  19. Thanks for reading it, Laurel.

  20. Love it, Ann .. it directly compatible with a book my sister wrote titled, “Healing Intelligence” ~Laurel <3 <3

  21. Sounds like I need to read it!

  22. Thanks for your comments. It was a great trip.

  23. My wife Bethany and I were fortunate enough to have Ann McKenzie help us with our wedding back in October. She did an amazing job with our wedding! She helped us with everything we needed as far as vows and any other questions about what to do or expect with the ceremony. She met with us several times before the big day to discuss everything, and always got back to us immediately via phone or email. She made sure that we understood the wedding was about us and we could do everything the way we wanted! She was there to give whatever help we wanted but did not dictate anything if we did not want her to. Ann made our big day extremely smooth and memorable. We were very blessed to have her officiate our wedding! Feel free to ask her to give our contact info if you have any specific questions!

  24. When it came time for my wife, Camille, and I to identify an officiant for our wedding ceremony, we knew the individual had to be one who highlighted our values, beliefs, and love shared. After the first conversation, we instantly knew Ann was God sent. Ann made sure to exceed our expectations by taking the time to get to know each of us and our desires for our special day. She made sure to be thoughtful and considerate of our life stories, giving light to this through her tailored transcript of our ceremony. As a couple, we want our love to inspire others to love. Ann did just that by setting a beautiful tone for our ceremony. We are blessed that we were able to share our union with Ann and are so happy to call her a friend, a bond that will forever be in our hearts! Love Mrs. Candace and Camille Green

  25. This testimonial warms my heart. Thank you for your loving and kind words.

  26. Ann, Thank you for the great talk you gave at Mama’s funeral. You said a lot with a few words and reminded us of how blessed we were to have known our wonderful parents. You will always have a special place in my heart. I love you so much!
    Donna

  27. Donna,
    You know I love your Mama, you and all our family. We are very blessed to have parents who taught us the value of family. I was very nervous but knew Aunt Melba would want me to do it.

  28. My (now) husband and I were nervous about finding an officiant that would be able to capture our spiritual energy and our love story to make our ceremony feel truly unique and meaningful to us. We were so lucky to be introduced to Ann! After our first phone conversation, which ended up lasting an hour because the three of us just could not stop chatting, we knew that we had found someone truly special. Ann is focused on making the ceremony so personalized, and truly wanted to get to know us. We did not feel like just another random couple getting married by someone we had just met. We filled out a short questionnaire and submitted our responses separately to her so she could include some of our own words in the ceremony. It was so sweet hearing what my husband thought of our love through Ann. She was thoughtful, genuine, detail oriented, and helped us write our own vows. When we finally met in person a few weeks before the big day, my husband, Ann and I felt such an immediate connection! By the end of our meeting we were hugging and laughing. On our big day, Ann had such a calming, sweet, loving spirit that helped us truly embrace the beautiful moments of our ceremony. We feel SO lucky to have found Ann- she gave us the ceremony of our dreams!

  29. I had the pleasure to have Ann as my wedding coordinator. She made my day less stressful! She’s very well organized! I highly recommend her for your wedding needs!

  30. You were one of the most relaxed bride I have seen. It was a pleasure working with you.

  31. I felt an immediate connection with you and Carl. Your words describing each other were so touching, I wanted to jump for joy. After meeting you, I know this was a marriage founded on a deeper sense of spirit in addition to the love you have for each other. I was blessed to be a part of it.

  32. My husband and I feel so lucky to have found Ann to be our wedding officiant. We did a search on thumbtack and received several quotes back. Ann’s fees were very reasonable and she will tailor your ceremony however you want it. On the day of our ceremony she was prompt, made everyone feel comfortable and was very professional. Ann has a lovely sense of humor and is a genuine person. We highly recommend for your special day! Thank you Ann, Julie and Doug Sutter

  33. Ann officiated my wife Kathy and I wedding in October and boy was she a pleasure to work with. Ann helped us create and personalize our vows, she was very friendly yet professional. I strongly recommend using Ann as she is outstanding at performing Weddings.

  34. I really enjoyed the wedding at the beach and the reception. It was fun seeing Kathy’s parent sand her brother again after his June wedding. The kids in the sand ceremony truly made it special.

  35. I want to thank you for inviting me to be part of your ceremony. The love between you and Doug was obvious and I enjoyed meeting your parents. It was a beautiful event.

  36. Awww, Ann, Tag was awesome… and definitely a gift from Sonny after he passed to help fill your house with love and suoport for you and Wil as you both were to move on to other things! What a beautiful homage to such a sweet dog… He obviously fulfilled his “contract” now and can, as you said, run free as much as he wants!

  37. Awww What a sweet tribute to Tag. May he Rest In Peace. Glad you had such a wonderful dog.

  38. Thank you Angela.

  39. He was wonderful.

  40. I am sad to hear of Tag’s passing. There is a special place in your heart for a dog whether you have him for a few months or 12 years. I remember him first as that terrified puppy who had never been handled by a human and screamed when we went near him. Marty and I tucked him between us on the sofa, covered him with a blanket and put on a DVD. When the movie finished, Tag came out, warm, comforted, trusting, and sweet, the dog we came to know. I am so glad you wanted him, you gave him a wonderful home and good people to love him. I could not have asked for a better person to take him. Sorry about that 35 pounds thing. His mother really was small. 85 lbs??? Oh my gosh! I feel like I want to apologize for that mistake but it was not a mistake. He was where he needed to be. I know what it is to lose that special dog, you have my sympathy. You will always have what he gave you. My he rest in peace and run with the wind. Carol.

  41. Thank you for telling me about his first few months of life. I am doing well but this made me cry. I know he is running like crazy in the spiritual plane!

  42. […] I had the pleasure of photographing Kendra & Matt’s wedding at Raleigh’s Historic Yates Mill Park a couple of weeks ago. The park is one of my favorite portrait locations in the Raleigh / Durham area, but I have never shot a wedding there. The ceremony was held in the outdoor amphitheater. We did a portrait session prior to the ceremony and used the gorgeous waterfall and mill as a background. Check out the cool art piece that they created during the ceremony. They had a few family members come up and pour different paint colors onto a canvas. The bride and groom finished it off with their colors and now they have a beautiful art piece and memento from the wedding. Officiant: Ann McKenzie […]

  43. Lindsay ,
    It was my pleasure to work with you as the photographer for this wedding. Your photography is amazing- it captures the essence of the couple’s feelings for each other on camera. Fantastic job.

  44. I would definitely recommend Ann. My husband and I weren’t really sure the direction we wanted to take with our ceremony, we just knew the things we didn’t want. We met with Ann and talked with her several times before the rehearsal and wedding and she offered us lots of suggestions and good advice about the themes we could use. She was great listener and wanted to make this ceremony about us. We ended up using several of her ideas for our ceremony, she wrote the most beautiful wedding script, and she offered some very useful critiques for each of our vows which made them work so well together for the ceremony. She was very easy to get a hold of, very responsive, fun and full of life. I would recommend Ann to anyone.

  45. Ann is incredible! She spent time getting to know us, both individually and as a couple, and in doing so, incorporated what she learned to create a beautiful and unique ceremony with personalized, heartfelt, and meaningful vows. Ann is a genuine, warm, and calming person who is strives to make sure you have all you need.

  46. I enjoyed getting to know you and Rich before the wedding. The wedding was beautiful, your sister even said she felt your Dad was there when the sun came out just as we were remembering him.

  47. Shannon,
    The wedding was beautiful. You made it through even when the venue overbooked the rehearsal time. Everything went according to plan and you were radiant.

  48. Thanks so much for mentoring me in how to meditate and for creating the personalized short meditations for me. Having them tailored to my specific needs and time constraints is just fantastic. They are invaluable tools to center myself and remind me of what’s truly important to me when I’m on the road and get stressed out from the pressures of my job. I am your #1 Fan!

  49. You are a joy to work with. I value you as a friend also.

  50. Awww… Thank you, Ann! And THANK YOU for being a friend as well… I’m so glad we set it up to meet (I’m sure again) in this lifetime; I’m glad to help and support you in any way, and you’ve actually been there for me a lot, too, in a very unique way and perspective that keeps me motivated and moving forward! Love you!

  51. Thank you for always being there for me.

  52. […] This will always be a time to remember how wonderful this planet Earth and our Solar System is. It helps us understand the connection with our universe and how it is possible to all be connected energetically. This spiritual event that we are fortunate enough to witness, is a reminder of the wondrous things we have yet to explore.  Meditation can lead to a deeper understanding of our universe as well as ourselves.

  54. Thank you for all the links within-Peggy x

  55. I love all these trees, so I thought the links would make it easier for people to find out information about visiting them. Thanks for reading the blog.

  56. So glad you got to check this off your bucket list — the photos are powerful and beautiful!

  57. It’s wonderful when nature is appreciated at its most basic level…how everything and everyone is connected. We live on a beautiful planet – thank you for putting it in words.

  58. Thanks for reading it, I loved Arizona,

  59. The photos do not do justice to this true beauty in our world.

  60. Actually the grand Canyon is the ancient home of my ancestors and the ancestors of all Moorish American Nationals. What you saw was not carved out by water and wind but is the ancient temples, pyramids and towers of our people. You saw the Tower of Set, The Tower of Ra, The Temple of Isis, and many more of the architectural wonders of our people. The Spiritual Connection that is felt there is because we are the Natural, Divine People of this land and we have been here since the beginning of time. No, we did not come here on slave ships from across the water which is why you have never seen even one of the ‘hundreds of slave ships that brought millions of us here’. We, known to you all as ‘Negro, Black, Colored, and African American’ were enslaved right here on our own land and the Grand Canyon was where we lived. I am glad that you felt our presence and the presence of our ancestors there. That will never change. Light Tajiri Bey

  61. You and your story are very inspiring Ann – this is a great lesson on how to keep moving forward. It’s always hard (don’t I know it!) but if you don’t move with it, you will lose yourself. Hugs, Kris

  62. Thanks for your kind words.

  63. Ann, thank you for your share. You are right, we have to always move forward with the flow of life events. Find out if there was a lesson, let go and move on. I don’t know that everything that happens has a “lesson” but I do know I don’t want to get stuck in a time warp. So I keep on moving forward, learning my spiritual lessons, and sending love. Namaste.

  64. Sounds like you are well on your way to your spiritual journey! Thank you for sending the love!

  65. This gave me chills! Every since my grandmother passed away, I feel strongly that she is walking beside me and kicking my other angels into gear to help me on my path. They do not leave us, I see signs of her everywhere. This weekend, as I was packing for a move into our forecer home, I found the card she gave us for our wedding–the envelope said “Best of Luck” and I started sobbing. I miss her so much, but I am thrilled that she is still with me. Thank you for this post!

  66. You are lucky to be open to these messages. Sometimes people close their mind and miss the comfort of a loved one who has passed away. I am happy for you.

  67. Your blog shows us ways to find a sense of peace and connection when we grapple with the loss of a loved one and to be open to the signs that they are with us in some form – thank you.

  68. Thank you for reading. Some of my signs don’t seem very dramatic, but if you are paying attention even the smallest thing can be a sign from a loved one. Many times you are the only one that would know it.

  69. Nicely worded and succinctly written Ann.

  70. You taking the time to read my blogs and leaving comments is always greatly appreciated. When I write a blog, my hope is that it will help someone find answers they are searching for.

  71. Thanks for saving my broken Marriage and brought my husband back to me!”. Me and my husband are living together happily again.. All thanks to him. If you have any problem contact him now and i guarantee you that he will help you contact him through Robinsonbuckler @hotmail. com

  72. I am glad the blog helped you and your husband. If there are any other areas of interest for blogs, please let me know. The “Five Love Languages” blog on my website is good for marriages too.

  73. It’s really good thing to know your spouse got your back and he’s not looking elsewhere, i was able to discover my husband has been playing games after i noticed a recent change in his attitude with the help of Superb technologies (superbtechnologies444 @ gmail.com ) who help me spy on my husband and track all his messages.

  74. I am sorry for your issues with your husband. The thing that helps most people in a relationship is learning to love themselves. Then they don’t need anything from others and are able to give love without conditions to those who truly care for them.
