If Your Walls Could Speak with Annette Rugolo

[00:00:04.580] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Good morning and welcome to Green Tea Conversations. The radio show that delves into the pages of Natural Awakenings Magazine to bring you local experts who share their progressive ideas and the latest information and insights needed so you can lead your best life. I'm your host, Candi Broeffle publisher the Twin Cities edition of Natural Awakenings magazine, and I've had the honor to meet hundreds of highly qualified professionals in the areas of natural medicine, sustainable living, and healthy relationships, and I wanted to find a way to help them expand their reach, to share their expertise. Green Tea Conversations is our vehicle to do just that.
Our guest this morning is a Annette Rugolo who is an environmental healing consultant, global teacher and speaker and author of a new book, Soul Whisper, releasing Lost Souls this month. Annette also wrote an article entitled If Your Walls Could Speak, which can be found in the January 2019 issue of Natural Awakenings Magazine. Welcome to the show Annette.
[00:01:07.060] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Thank you, Candi. Great to be here.
[00:01:09.520] - Candi Broeffle, Host
It's so nice to have you here today, and I'm really excited to get into speaking about your area of expertise. And today we are going to start focusing on the article itself. So in the article, If Your Walls Could Speak, you focused on the energy in our homes, the energy that is held in the walls in the furniture for decades or even centuries, kind of depending on when and where your home was built. In particular, you talk about the negative energy that is held in our homes.
So how does this negative energy get trapped?
[00:01:43.640] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So if you think about a person or a family living in a home, we're not always in our best and highest self. So this energy that we create with our emotions or our mental body or mind, some of that energy is out of fear or grief, anger, all of that energy. If somebody in the home, for instance, think about somebody that maybe lost a loved one and they go into this uncontrollable grief, which is natural. Grief is normal. But some people stay in that energy for maybe 5 10,15, 20 years, and they create this.
I call it an emotional fog. At that energy creates a low vibrational energy in the space, and it creates like a cloud or a fog of energy that after they move out or they leave that energy that they've created, it still stays there. So then one of the things I always tell people is everything is energy, everything, including our walls, our furniture, our space and even the walls and the furniture will absorb that heavy energy and it exists until we do something with it.
[00:03:25.390] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So let me ask you this. If you are. I bought a couple of homes in my lifetime, and I did a lot of searching for my most recent home that I purchased, and I remember walking into a home with my husband and on paper, it was perfect for us. It had the right amount of bedrooms and the right amount of outdoor space. Everything seemed really good. I was really excited to go in in and actually see the home. When I walked into the home, it felt very heavy.
It felt very heavy. It felt very sad. And that seems kind of funny to say. But you could feel like this heaviness or this, and it really turned me off. Like I didn't want to be in the home for very long. And as we walk through the home, I noticed that the only furniture that was in the home was actually a recliner and a TV tray and a TV in the living room. And so you knew right away, I had actually said to the real estate agent, is this person the man still living here, even though he's been divorced. And so it felt like it was that kind of sadness and anger and that type of thing in the home. Is that what you're talking about?
[00:04:39.890] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Exactly. So when I was a child, up until I learned about the environmental energy, and I've talked to a lot of people that feel the same way is I'd be able just like your experience, walk into a space and instantly feel like something was there. I knew that there wasn't a big argument or a lot of sadness, and I always thought it was me. Like, what's wrong with me is just my energy. And one of the things I realized then when I started learning this is, oh, no.
It's the energy of a space that I'm picking up on. So that's exactly. It one of the things that I've discovered over the years. I've met a lot of Realtors, and there's something that they know that they they use the term a divorce home. So this is something that happens that they experience over and over again. Is there's a home that sells because the couple is getting the divorce and depending on what happened before that divorce, where their years of fighting and anger and stress and all of that.
But that couple, depending on how long and how strong that energy was created, they move out and they leave their energy. There another couple moves in. They're happy couple. Two years later, they get divorced. And then another couple moves in. A few years later, they're divorced. So now this home is labeled as a divorce home. But what happens for us is if we don't have the tools or a way to stay above this low vibrational, this heavy energy, it starts affecting us. It brings us down into that energy if we don't have the ability to transform it and uplift it.
[00:06:47.680] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So really, even though the home is empty and there's nobody in there, it seems kind of I think for some people, it might seem kind of odd to be talking about this. But if we think about it, it's like walking into a workplace. And if you work with someone who always seems to be really negative or really sad or really kind of the heat to say, Debbie Downer. But it really affects everybody in the workplace, doesn't it?
[00:07:15.780] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
It absolutely does. And I think that's one of the things that a lot of people are beginning to realize and awaken to it's like, oh, this energy, it has a certain vibration. We call it vibes. There's a lot of people. It's like, oh, I like hanging around with them. I like their vibes.
[00:07:35.030] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:07:35.280] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Well, it's a short for vibration. I like their vibration that feels good. It's uplifting or somebody else. It's like, oh, they pull me down.
[00:07:43.740] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:07:44.350] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So it's the same kind of thing, except it's the energy of a space. And it's like it just pulls me down.
[00:07:51.720] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And I suppose, especially when you're talking about the sadness and the anger and the if they have children, there's going to be fear about what's happening. So all of those low vibration energies get trapped in the home. And so a lot of people will say. And I was sharing this on another show that I had done that when I was looking for a home. My massage therapist, who's from China had told me to bring a baby with me. And she said, you should always bring a baby when you're looking for a home because a baby is very intuitive and they can sense the energy.
And if they become uncomfortable, if they start crying, if they get irritable, that that is a good indication that the energy is not good in that home.
[00:08:41.300] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Oh, I never thought of that like, that could be a whole new business.
[00:08:45.760] - Candi Broeffle, Host
See, I'm giving you business ideas all the time to be. Yes, you rent out a baby and go looking for your home. But I actually did that when I was looking for my home and took the baby with me. And when we came into this particular home that we thought she was very happy and giggly. So there is something to it, I'm sure, because it worked for me. So what can happen if the negative energy isn't cleared from a home?
[00:09:16.790] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Well, I just like what I described with the divorce homes. It's like it pulls you down into that lower vibrational energy, and then it affects your life overall. One of the things that got me very passionate about what I do. Six months before I learned how to clear energy, my daughter moved into a house, and my grandson was four years old at the time. And within days of moving in the house, he started having these terrible tantrums. And they went on for six months. My daughter started taking them to medical doctors, child psychologists, psychiatrists.
They had no idea what was going on and all of them. They just wanted to put him on medication, and she was really resistant to that. So I ended up taking the dowsing course, learning how to cure negative energy, and found out he had a negative energy negative vortex in his bedroom that he's sleeping in and cleared it. Tantrums are gone.
[00:10:27.700] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:10:29.260] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
That's one of the I would say most dramatic thing that happens, right? But I've seen people have nightmares. Night tears, can't sleep, lack of sleep, lack of focus because of some of the energy that's in the space lowered immune system, not being able to heal properly because you're the energy and the space isn't supporting. So there's all kinds of different.
[00:10:59.200] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So many things that can happen, endings. So when we come back, we're going to talk a little bit more and learn more about diamond dowsing, which is the type of dowsing that you do. If people are interested in learning more about what you do, where can they find you? What is your website address?

[00:11:14.590] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
I have a website.

[00:11:17.140] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And how do you spell Rugolo?
[00:11:18.820] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
[00:11:20.650] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay, so So we're talking to a Annette Rugolo, and when we come back, we're going to explore Diamond Dowsing, the technique it uses with her clients to help clear negative energy and create balance in their homes.

You're listening to Green Tea Conversations on AM950, the Progressive Voice of Minnesota will be right back.
[00:12:03.870] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Welcome back to Green Tea Conversations, where we delve into the pages of Natural Awakenings magazine and talk to the experts who share their expertise on natural health with you. I'm your host, Candi Broeffle, and today we're talking with Anette Rugolo, an environmental healing consultant, global teacher, and speaker, and author of the new book Soul Whisper, Releasing Lost Souls. Before the break, we were talking about energy, and in particular, negative energy that can get stuck in our homes from previous owners and their emotional and spiritual responses caused from the events that are happening in their lives.
[00:12:40.470] - Candi Broeffle, Host
One of your areas of expertise is called Dowsing. What is environmental Dowsing?
[00:12:47.980] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So the way I describe it is dowsing the word itself. What it is. It's a technique. So it's a technique where you can use twigs. People that do water, witching use twigs to find underground water. You can use a pendulum. You can use dowsing rods, but it's a technique to help you find something that you cannot see with your physical eyes.
[00:13:20.120] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So let me ask you before you go in so why twigs?. So I had shared with you prior to starting the show today that when I was a child, my parents had built a new home. We lived out in the country. There was a gentleman in our community who did. We called it back then water witching or well witching. And it was actually water dowsing. So he would use Willow sticks and use it in order to find where was the best place to drill the well for water. And he was always right spot on.
So we always had great water in our community. But why Willow twigs? What is it about the Willow twigs? Or now they have actual dowsing rods?
[00:14:05.200] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
That's a good question. I'm not sure why they started with Willow twigs. I'm guessing Dowsing is very ancient, so I'm guessing it was more accessible, available for many thousands of years. I also sense that the Willow twigs very connected to Earth energy because we're finding underground water where it helps connect to the Earth.
[00:14:31.040] - Candi Broeffle, Host
and flexible I would imagine as well.
[00:14:33.480] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Yes. Easy to move. You can actually see them move when they find the water.
[00:14:38.700] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So kind of explain to us what does this process looks like?
[00:14:43:340] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So I've been teaching technique called diamond dowsing since 2006. Was brought in by the creator of the program Marie Diamond. Yes, she's originally from Belgium. She's in Europe right now. But she was in here in the United States for ten years. And that's when I met her and studied with her. So now we're using brass, professional dowsing rods. And what I teach is how to hold them and, more importantly, how to connect in with a source. So the answers, as we're dowsing are not coming from our personality.
They're not coming from our mental body. It's not coming from our emotional body. It's coming from our higher self. So there's a technique of visualizations that I teach where I help people connect in with what's called the quantum point, a place an arms length above the head that gives you access to quantum frequencies. And so now you're consciously connected to a field of energy and information outside of the personality body. And that's the technique of dowsing that I teach.
[00:16:12.120] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. And how is that? How is it used then, to release the negative energy?
[00:16:18.010] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So as I go into a home, I'm now asking the questions. So it's the questions that you ask very clear, very specific questions. So I start by checking the energy level of the house to see where it is. And then I start asking questions. Is there a negative vortex in this house? Is there a positive vortex in this house? Something else we look for is geopathic stress lines, Geopathic stress is underground water, fault lines. And again, things that we cannot see with our physical eyes.
But the energy of these lines affects us.
[00:16:59.880] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so when you say negative vortexes and positive vortexes, what is a vortex?
[00:17:07.990] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
A vortex is lots of different descriptions for it. But the one we use is a vortex created by the lay lines of the Earth. So the Earth has a physical body. It has an etheric body. And the lay lines around the Earth make up this etheric body of the Earth. So when these lay lines cross at a perfect 90-degree angle, it creates this positive vortex, this wonderful uplifting energy. So if you think of places like Sedona. Stonehenge, aBerry, Machu Picchu.
[00:17:46.840] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Places that are known for being very,
[00:17:48.970] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
very positive
[00:17:50.320] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:17:51.100] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Yes, they have a lot of these positive or vortexes lay lines crossing at a 90 degrees. So over time, because the Earth is so old, if etheric body has been damaged either through outside forces, humanity has done some of the damage. And these lay lines then open up and they're not crossing at this 90-degree angle. And when those little lines open, it creates this downward flow of energy that we call a negative vortex. And there's different types. I've had experiences with many of them, and it just pulls people down into their deepest, darkest self.
Very heavy. Just really, I don't know how to explain it other than people that have experienced this when they're in this energy, that's all they see is dark. It disconnects them from the light. Let's put it that way. That's probably easy way to describe it.
[00:19:03.510] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. So I'm kind of in my mind visioning almost like a Whirlpool that you're getting kind of stuck in and pulled it into.
[00:19:11.300] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Exactly. That's a great way to describe it.
[00:19:13.850] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so with the dowsing rods, you are able to do what?
[00:19:18.170] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Because I'm asking the questions I'm asking, for instance, are there Geopathic stress lines in this house? I get it. Yes. How many I can get? How many? And the big thing with diamond dowsing that's so unique is I can find out where that geopathic stress line is coming in from, and I can cure it. So there's a lot of other dowsing techniques that confine the lines or the negative vortex or these energies, and they simply have people move out of them like, don't sleep here.
[00:19:53.350] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:19:53.860] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Don't spend any time here. What is unique to diamond dowsing is I work with light frequencies, and we have cures very thin, copper-covered steel cures that's activated with the intention of curing a line and a double activation or attunement with light frequencies.
[00:20:17.290] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Well, we're going to talk about that a bit more in just a little bit when we come back. So I'm going to ask you to hold on to that. And again, your website is
[00:20:27.030] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
[00:20:29.130] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. And that's R-U-G-O-L-O.Com to read Natural Awakenings online, visit NaturalTwinCities.Com. You can find a podcast of the show on AM950Radio.Com on iTunes or anywhere you get your podcast. You're listening to Green Tea Conversations on AM950, the Progressive Voice of Minnesota will be back in just a bit.
Welcome back to Green Tea Conversations, where we delve into the pages of Natural Awakenings magazine and talk to the experts who share their expertise on natural health with you. I'm your host, Candi Broeffle. And today we're talking with Annette Rugolo, an environmental healing consultant and author of Soul Whisper, Releasing Lost Souls. And she's been sharing her expertise of diamond dowsing, a technique she uses to release negative energy in her clients homes. Thanks again for being with us today, Annette.
[00:21:37.700] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Thanks, Candi.
[00:21:39.170] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So when we were speaking last, you were starting to explain to us how you can help to cure negative. Did you call them fault lines?
[00:21:50.410] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Well, the fault lines create what's called geopathic stress.
[00:21:53.930] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay, so the negative geopathic stress by using copper-covered steel rods. This is part of the technique that's exclusive or that's kind of significant to diamond dowsing itself.
[00:22:09.780] - Annette Rugolo, Guest

[00:22:10.410] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. So explain to us a little bit more about how you're able to do that.
[00:22:15.270] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Okay so. They use 18 inch long. So there's an Egyptian measurement called qubit that is cold light. And then the copper is an element that connects with the Earth. So now we're working with Earth energies through the copper, and they're activated. They hold intention. So these sticks hold the intention of whatever we wanted to cure. Geopathic stress, negative vortexes, something called interference lines, which we haven't covered yet. But once I know where this geopathic stress line is coming in, either to a house or the property. I like doing this outside.
I'll find where that line. If there's a centerline, the strongest line also has an aura field. But I'll find that center line and place the stick perpendicular to it. And what I'm doing is I'm setting that stick down is setting it with the intention that it cures that geopathic stress. And a stick is also activated. And this is really what makes diamond dowsing. Diamond dowsing. It's activated with a frequency of light that it holds. So as I place that stick, it's not only placed with the intention of curing whatever I'm curing, but it's also bringing in a high vibrational frequency into the space.
[00:23:53.940] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So is that bringing in the positive energy? Could we say?

[00:23:57.670] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Yes? So one of the stories I love to share about this, and this happened a few years ago. I'm dowsing a friend's home, and she ended up having three geopathic stress lines in her backyard, all on the right side of her yard. If you're looking at the back. So I placed these. They're blue. It's a Royal blue activation. And I placed these sticks to cure these lines. The next day, she had an open house. Turns out one of her friends could see energy. She didn't know she had the house dowsed, and she's standing next to my friend looking out the back door.
I'm telling my friend, Michelle, you have three huge blue Angels protecting your yard. Where did those come from? And it's like Michelle didn't see it. But it's exactly where I cure at the Geopathic stress. So we're bringing in what people call angelic energy, but it's high vibrational frequencies now into our space. And I call it connecting heaven and Earth. We're bringing in beautiful light and anchoring it into our homes and into our yards.
[00:25:15.500] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so once it's healed, or once you've cured it. Is it cured, then for good? Is this something that can come back?
[00:25:24.070] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
The geopathic stress lines are cured for good.
[00:25:27.180] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:25:27:640] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Now, what can happen? The Earth is going through its own evolution. So it's going through changes and shifting and everything. So we could get new geopathic stress lines. So, for instance, here in Minnesota, last year, we had a lot of water. We had a lot of rain, so flooding new underground Rivers, underground streams could open up. So there could be some new ones. But the ones that were cured stay cured.
[00:25:58.180] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. So let's talk about some of the stress lines that you're talking about. So you've kind of explained what the geopathic stress line fire. What are interference lines?
[00:26:09.540] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Interference lines are frequencies, energies that are hitting our house from cell phone towers, radio towers, satellite dishes. And I call it all that transmission energy. And outside, we're not so affected by it. But when it hits our house, I always feel it like a fly gets in the door or the window and it's bouncing off the walls. It's trying to get out. And what happens when there's a lot of interference lines in the house? People get headache, they get like, sinus stuff going on. It feels unfocused.
And this is another time I watch the kids because what it does to the kids, it's almost like they're bouncing off the walls. Okay. They're just like they can't settle.
[00:27:02.540] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So like you said, the energy feels like it's bouncing or like a fly trying to get out. And that's how it's impacting the kids as well.
[00:27:09.480] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Yes. Exactly.
[00:27:10.760] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Interesting. So what about personal lines? The stress lines from transmissions that affect you personally.
[00:27:17.270] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So some of these frequencies, these transmissions, there's an energy in there that just affects it just affects you personally. So it doesn't affect anybody else in the room, but just you. So now everybody's calm and you're just, like, agitated, frustrated. Sometimes that's kind of the feeling that comes with this or you might have a headache, but it's a frequency that just affects you.

[00:27:49.310] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So again, that must be kind of frustrating to have that happen to you and not know why it's only impacting you and not everybody else in the home.
[00:27:58.210] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
[00:27:59.330] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So what about the negative Hartman and Curry lines? What are Hartman and Curry?

[00:28:05.060] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So Hartman and Curry lines are magnetic flows of energy that go around our planet? Back in 1930, Dr. Hartman discovered these lines going north to South, east to west. Three years later, Dr. Curry comes along and says, yeah, those are there. But there's also diagonal lines. And those run northeast to southwest, Southeast to northwest. And it's a natural flow of energy. So people used to find where these lines crossed and would always feel as positive energy. So Hartman Curry lines are positive. What's happened over the years as we started building our homes and putting electricity in our homes?
If there was an outlet or a circuit breaker box on one of these lines, that line would pick up that current of electricity and send it through the house. Now, whoever sleeping or sitting in that line, it's almost like I call it the Bug Zapper energy. It's like you're being zapped with this current of electricity as you're sleeping or sitting in that space. So then we call it negative Hartman or Negative Curry lines, and we can easily cure these as well. But just placing a stick there.
[00:29:30.230] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So what generally prompts people to call you to say, you know, I think I need to have you come to my home?
[00:29:37:310] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
A lot of times. What's two very important things? One is when people move. And even if they didn't feel that energy right away in their new house, they feel it like they get in there and it's like something's wrong with this house. It doesn't feel good. And they know it's the house because they were fine and their other house. And they moved into this new house and it's like things go wrong. The other thing that prompts is children. So a lot of parents are very, of course, wanting to take care of their children.
So children that have bad dreams that are acting out for no reason. And again, I always tell people watch what happens after a move because that's where it shows up.
[00:30:28.890] - Candi Broeffle, Host
This is kind of starting to remind me of when you hear people who work in nursing homes and hospitals, emergency rooms. They'll say they can always tell when there's a full moon or they get prepared, like when a full moon is coming because there are so many things that happen, so many odd things that happen. And so this kind of reminds me of that. It's like it's impacting people. The energy that's in our world is impacting people in different ways. Not everybody gets impacted by a full moon.
[00:31:01.470] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
[00:31:02.190] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Not everybody gets impacted by the energy that you're talking about.
[00:31:06.010] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
What I believe is everybody is impacted. Some people aren't aware of it yet.
[00:31:12.520] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:31:13.160] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So it's going to impact people if they're aware of it or not because it's energy, but not everybody. I call it the law of attraction. So one of the things I teach in one of the advanced classes is how to clear your childhood home. We go back and douse their childhood home and our home. When we live in these homes, it creates an imprint. So we're carrying around this energy or this imprint in our energy fields, especially or other fields.
So when we walk in a home, it's like, oh, this is normal. Okay. If we grow up in that energy continue to attract it, and we can't feel the difference.
[00:31:58.620] - Candi Broeffle, Host
That makes so much sense.

And then when people start doing some kind of spiritual practice meditation, they're clearing their own energy fields. Then all of a sudden, it's like this energy of my house isn't matching my energy anymore. That's the other time they call me. So it's like this space doesn't feel good to me anymore. What's going on?
[00:32:22.160] - Candi Broeffle, Host
You know, it is interesting because, you hear, you know, kids who get taken out of their homes because of abuse or something that's happening and people get confused because the kids want to go back home and it's their family, right. It's what they know. It's what they feel comfortable in. It's, what they've kind of become accustomed to. And so what you're saying is we're doing that same thing. If we have that kind of energy in our childhood homes, then we may be attracted to that. When we're looking for homes that we're purchasing ourselves to start our family in.
[00:32:59.780] - Candi Broeffle, Host
I call it the law of attraction on the environmental level, environmental law of attraction. So we keep attracting it. Now one of the things I've seen over the years. I've had a wonderful opportunity to dowse people's homes more than once. So, for instance, I go in and dowse their first home that they're living in bring that up to a high vibration of high energy. Now, when they're looking for their second home, they know exactly what home is going to support them and what it doesn't.
[00:33:37.510] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Oh, wow.
[00:33:38.250] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Now they're used to higher energy. And that happened to my husband and I after our home was dowsed.
[00:33:44.120] - Candi Broeffle, Host

And again, people can find you and can get more information by going to your website, which is When we come back, we're going to continue talking with Annette and learn about her new book that she recently released and find out about some of the classes that she's offering that you may be interested in participating in.

Welcome back to Green Tea Conversations, where we delve into the pages of Natural Awakenings magazine and talked to the experts who share their expertise on natural health with you. I'm your host, Candi Broeffle, and today I'm talking to Annette Rugolo an environmental healing consultant and author of a new book called Soul Whisper, Releasing Lost Souls. This book was a particular interest to me as well Annette and I have to say I sat down.
It is a nice read. It's kind of an easy read, but I swear, I think I finished it in probably 90 minutes. I just could not put it down. Once I started taking a look at it, it had a lot of really captivating stories in it, and the stories really help to helped me to understand what it is that you were sharing with people. So I'm going to ask you without without giving away too much. Share a little bit with our listeners about what the book is about.
[00:35:26.660] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So the book is about releasing spirits.
[00:35:33.990] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:35:36.710] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So like you said, I started with stories because I had so many experiences and continue to have experiences with releasing spirits. One of the first things that happened that I want to share is that again, there's always something that really gets you passionate about something. So at the end of my first dowsing class with Marie Diamond, this is in Fargo, North Dakota, in 2005, we opened up a portal to release the spirit. So we sat in a group. We did our protection meditation and or held a space in the circle while over 200 spirits walked in.
And I see it like an elevator. They step into this light and they just like an elevator leave. And people in the group felt it saw them. There were children, there were animal spirits. And I was just so blown away by that experience that I continued to explore and learn more about spirits, what keeps them stuck while they're here. And the purpose of the book was really to bring people out of fear because so many people see them or hear them or experience them in some way and don't know what to do.
So there's so much fear-based around ghosts and spirits. I really wrote the book to move people beyond them.
[00:37:15.490] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And I think correct me if I'm wrong. But I think people are more open to this now, more open to this idea. I think we were open to it way way back, and then we talk ourselves out of it, listen to the experts, and kind of quit listening to our own intuition about what was actually happening. But people who I've had the privilege of being with people when they've left this world when they've passed on. And it is a very spiritual experience. Luckily, I've been with people who have exited because of health reasons and old age and that type of thing.
So I'm not saying if it was a tragic death or whatever, but for people who have passed on just from natural causes, it is a very spiritual experience, and you can definitely feel the energy that this person has and the areas they are leaving. So in the book, you talk a lot about what happens when people get trapped and some of the different ways that you can help people in order to move on. So if people are interested in purchasing the book. Where can they find it?
[00:38:32.250] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
On my website on
[00:38:35.520] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:38:35.920] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
It's also on Amazon Branson Noble. It's in hardback paperback and Kindle version.
[00:38:43.410] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And I know you've had some book signings and you've had some release parties. Do you have any other ones coming up? I didn't even ask you this beforehand, so I'm putting you on the spot.
[00:38:52.530] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
No. But I am now working with somebody who used to work at Barnes and Noble that will be setting that up. So it will be on my website under events.
[00:39:03.400] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. So people can go there and see where you might be and be able to come and meet you in person and get their books book signed. Great. So a couple of other things that you have going on is you have some workshops that are coming up. So I'm just going to ask you to quickly share with us. You have one called The Law of Attraction, which is Sunday, January 27 from 9:30 A.M. to 430 P. M. At the Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Bloomington.
[00:39:30.330] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
And I actually need to correct that. I've been a little under the weather lately, so I moved that to February 2.
[00:39:37.710] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:39:38.220] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Sunday, February 2nd.
[00:39:39.000] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So same time.
[00:39:40.320] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Same time.
[00:39:40.780] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. And they can find it on your website, but give people kind of a quick explanation as to what this workshop is what they can expect.
[00:39:49.980] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
So again, I'm very connected with Marie Diamond. I'm her business partner, and every year she brings in the Law of attraction of this year of the New Year around the Chinese New Year. Okay. So it's based on Fung Sui. It's based on the Chinese New Year. And every year there's new energies coming in. So we look at the energies coming in, the frequencies, what is going to be supporting us. And the day is going to be just a beautiful day of focusing on your goals but from a different perspective.
So I help people connect in with their higher self. So they're aligned with what their higher self wants to bring forward instead of the personalities. And we create a vision board and we work with color. We release the energy of the last year, and I work with color vibration frequencies. And it's just a beautiful day of focusing on the goals for 2019.
[00:40:50.550] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So any hints on what 2019 has to offer as the energy that's coming in?
[00:40:56.740] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
I would say more positive than last year. One of the things that I can tell you for sure is some things that have been buried and hidden will be revealed.
[00:41:08.780] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. Interesting. Now I have to come to your class on the second. All right. So we have a few minutes left or a couple of minutes left. So I want you to share with people. You have a Diamond Dowsing class for a basic class coming up. And can anyone learn how to do diamond dowsing?
[00:41:28.760] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Yes. That's the beautiful part of this program. So we teach people how to do. And everybody leaves this two-day workshop learning how to dowse or have known how to dowse.
[00:41:44.280] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And this is April 12 through the 13th from 09:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m.. So it's a two-day workshop, 16 hours in total. And that's being held at the Unity Church in Golden Valley and are either of your workshops limited in the amount of people who can attend?
[00:42:02.460] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
No, there's no limit.
[00:42:03.780] - Candi Broeffle, Host
But people could go in and register quickly.
[00:42:08.360] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Especially with the diamond dowsing. I like it very experiential hands-on. So if there's more than I would say ten people, I have certified Dowsers in the Minneapolis area that I bring in as assistance.
[00:42:22.890] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Oh, nice. You get very, very hands-on.
[00:42:26.110] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
And it's fun.
[00:42:27.070] - Candi Broeffle, Host
[00:42:27.910] - Annette Rugolo, Guest
Get to dowse.
[00:42:29.890] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Thank you so much for being with us today, and it has been a pleasure. And again, your website is people can go there to learn how they can work with you to find out about your workshops and how they can purchase the book.
