Welcome!

I’m a Tokyo-based web designer and intuitive. On the blog you’ll find many of the intuitive messages I channel for myself and clients. You’ll also get a peek into my life as a caregiver for my Japanese father-in-law who has Alzheimer’s. Or, you might learn about my love of health and healing and how I helped my husband use a plant-based diet to recover from stage-3 colon cancer, chemo-free. And, if you’re interested in having a website or learning Japanese, there are some resources for that, too! Enjoy!

I acknowledge the hallucination and what he is seeing because for him it is real. | Living with Alzheimer's with Marci at marcikobayashi.com

I could hear a crackling of plastic as my father-in-law approached the table for breakfast on Sunday. He wasn’t holding anything and I couldn’t figure out what was making the sound. Then I looked down at his feet and stifled a gasp. I wasn’t sure whether I should laugh at his odd choice of footwear or… Read more »

When do you adjust your energy to others and when do you hold your own space and let them adjust to you? | Exploring life with Marci at marcikobayashi.com

I’m pretty good at holding space but not necessarily my own space. One of my superpowers is adjusting my energy to other people – finding their frequency and matching mine to it. It is not something I think about consciously and it is not something I remember learning to do. I do it naturally. It… Read more »
