“While humans are contributing to global warming, we are not the singular cause— warming being part of Earth’s cyclical processes”. This unpopular post of mine a couple of years ago on Facebook rounded an immediate chorus of vehement denial followed by a slurry of supporting media articles links, not to mention a few rude remarks.
My own thought processes were: Though humans can and are doing an inordinate amount of damage on this planet, the sustainability and viability…Continue
We have a bad habit of trying to micromanage all aspects of our everyday life. With this constant battle comes serious undue stress and imbalance. Somewhere in our ego mind we feel that if we just exert our control over all the minor details that some how this will bring us a sense of peace and security. The truth is we do need prudence and active participation, but how can we move more through life as a human being rather than a human doing?
Surrender is not the same as being…Continue

The realization that relationships are basically mirrors is the key to healing any and every relationship¾with ourselves, with others, with nature and with the universe. We are all inter- connected. What we think, feel and do affects everything around us.
This may be easier to accept as a general concept than as a truth about a particular relationship, especially an intimate one. The blame game has forever been a favorite couples' sport. "If only he would do that," we protest, or "if…Continue

April is Stress Awareness Month. Our bodies give us many indicators of stress, tension headaches, tightening in the neck and shoulders, for example. However, did you know that your face reveals your stress levels as well and can tell you just what kind of stress you are experiencing? Being able to recognize the indicators of stress on your face, can give you the ability to stop and reevaluate what is going on in your life at the moment, change your behavior and potentially reduce certain…Continue

Forgiveness is hard for some people who have been through trauma or can’t find it inside to let go of who they must forgive or what they must forgive. Some find certain acts unjustifiable. Nothing you can do or say will make them change their mind. The problem with that is that forgiveness is often our duty. It is something we have to do for ourselves. We can’t just live our life in a constant state of anger. Anger is the worst emotion that we can keep inside of us. This usually all…Continue
We ask so many questions to clarify our doubts. But do we ask ourselves, “Am I awake or asleep?” This is a simple question that needs moment-to-moment clarification. If we keep responding to this question with a positive response, then we are awakening to the reality of life.
As we practice being awakened to our silent soul within the serpent power at the base of the spine, it rises, gradually opening up subtler realms of spiritual…Continue

The Intuitive Switch: From Fear to Faith
Coming Into Your Authentic Power…Continue
Court jesters were highly valued by kings and emperors, trickster gods were an important part of many religions and cultures, and the Bible tells us that, “God chose the foolish things of the world.” (1 Corinthians 1:27) Even in our society, which has enthroned the logical brain, the fool is still held in high esteem by many. We may call them comedians, satirists, wits or artists, but they serve the same important function as the jesters and tricksters of the past: exposing absurdity that…Continue

Some random thoughts on the importance of "Rattling People's Cages" and "Poking at Holy Cows" as part of the personal growth process.
I'm a "Cage Rattler." And I've been known to sometimes poke at "Holy Cows."
I am also a highly sensitive person-- or HSP-- so I tend to approach the process gently, in a manner intended to get people to think more deeply about the closely held beliefs they cling to without question, without their becoming defensive.
I was never a…Continue
We’ve all heard the classic story of thinking about someone out of the blue, then the phone rings and it's that person. Perhaps you’ve experienced having an urge to give something to somebody, and it turns out that it was just the thing they needed at the time. Intuition is defined as the ability to understand something immediately without conscious reasoning or knowing. It seems to pop up out of nowhere, randomly and unexpectedly.
A dear friend called the other morning to tell me her washing machine was on the fritz and would it be wise to purchase another one during Mercury's retrograde in Pisces? Indeed sometimes large appliances need to be purchased during a Mercury retrograde period. I say buy what you need to buy, just keep the receipt.
I see Mercury retrograde as more of a contract issue, meaning that if you need to sign a contract, triple check everything. Even when purchasing your new appliance…Continue

How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? If you’ve ventured off course, no worries, now is the perfect time to get back on track.
I love symbols, don’t you? In our Screenplay, Angels Anonymous that my friend Pamela and I are writing, our earth characters are repeatedly sent symbols encouraging them to take action by their Guardian Angels…and much to the dismay and frustration of our angelic force, our earthlings are often unaware of what is right in front of them.…Continue

"As every season seems best to us in its turn, so the coming in of spring is like the creation of Cosmos out of Chaos and the realization of the Golden Age." Walden by Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
Do you remember the game Telephone? You would whisper a short sentence into someone's ear, and they would then turn and whisper it to the person seated on their other side. By the time the message had…Continue
When Was The Last Time You Thanked Your Body?
Odd question? Not really. Our bodies are amazing; just think we have roughly 50 to 75 trillion cells and we replace millions every day. Cells are the basic functional unit of our bodies and so very versatile. Tiny yes, but some can form into sheets of skin that covers us or create energy to keep us moving. Some make protein, bile and cholesterol that remove toxins from our blood. Others are reproductive cells that bring…Continue

…and how strong is your frequency?
For those of you that have been around long enough to remember the analog radio dials (and for those that haven’t, use your creativity), imagine turning the dial to find a station that you really like. It might be your favorite style of music, or a talk show that reflects your values. Because you’re not using preset buttons that immediately take you to your desired destination, you traverse along the airwaves paying momentary visits to a…Continue
Blessing Your Food with a Code?
The importance of it and how it can be done quickly
In childhood many of us we taught to bless our food as we sat at the dinner table and be thankful for what was set before us. We thanked God for the meal and often made some additions to the prayer over our food like a blessing for a dear friend or family member.
Is this something you still do? Are you embarrassed to do it in public or in front…Continue
