When you can’t see out the window… and other problems with lack of clarity

Well, this has been the year. Covid has been around for a year now and the back to normal life will be slow to arrive. I know if you are like me, this is starting to get irritating. Looking back, it did give me time to slow down and to make some changes. I’ve had […]

Voices in Our Heads

I have been getting “messages” pretty strongly in the past few weeks to pay closer attention to the voices in my head. We all have them. Some came from parents, others from kids and teachers growing up and still more just by being a living, breathing human interacting in the world. We take in and […]

Wisdom to Abundance Mindset

Each year I choose a word that I live with and really dig into throughout the year. Last year in 2020, my word was WISDOM (discernment) and boy oh boy did I learn A LOT! In a year of huge change and life looking nothing like we are used to, this year gave me ample […]

Marrying Humanness & Spirit

This morning during my meditation time one of my readings came from Mark Nepo’s Book of Awakening. The title read, “To Marry One’s Soul”. Even before I began to read, I paused and sat with this idea for several minutes. What can up for me was no only beautiful, but powerful. I would love for […]

Dis-ease in the body comes in many forms. When you think about the power of the brain in the functioning of our daily lives, honestly, we can’t live without […]

Vision Board

Did you know that visualization is one of the most powerful exercises you can do? There is a book you may be familiar with called, The Secret, and the premise is that what you think about, you bring about or you manifest into your consciousness. “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience […]

Impermanence

Impermanence.  That which is not permanent.  How quickly in your mind can you make a list of things that are impermanent? How long would that list be?  Answers:  quickly and long.  That is life. I am always surprised but never really shocked at how my morning readings and meditations flow together.  Today for example, my […]

Independence Day 2020

July 4, 2020.  A very different Independence Day than many we have celebrated in the past.  Throughout our history, this day has stirred up unrest, vulnerable feeling and opened the door (even a crack) to the injustices we still face as a nation as we go about our celebrating, picnicking, and shooting off fireworks. Frederick […]
