So your relationship is over? Whether it is a divorce, a breakup with a long time partner or the dissolution of something that you felt would have potential, breakups are painful. My clients report being in literal physical pain after a breakup, and many do not know how to soothe the pain or where to turn to get better. Let’s discuss the energy of ending a relationship.…

Some of us have poor boundaries. Let’s admit it. When we were growing up we were shamed or ridiculed or bullied for asking for our needs to be met. We might have been made to feel “less than” when we stated what we wanted. This left us with a sense that we are not worthy to protect ourselves, that we are selfish or ridiculous to ask others not to trample us with their words or actions.…

Yes, it is that time…to vote. I don’t get into debates regarding elections. As a matter of fact, I did not contemplate posting an article regarding politics.
However, because this is part of life, I will share a few thoughts for consideration.
When making a major decision regarding whom to choose, follow your heart or do as you… Continue

The other night I watched the magnificent Starseed, Jane Fonda, at age 70 something in her latest film - Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding. Jane plays the hippie mom living in Woodstock (of course!). I was amazed at her radiance and ethereal beauty, laugh lines and all! Her estranged, uptight lawyer daughter (played by Catherine Keener) comes to Jane's chicken-filled farmette, in the middle of a divorce. You know the story: revelation, reconciliation, and so… Continue

When my mother turned 40, she went into mourning. I remember her being depressed for weeks. When she turned 60, she was old, decrepit, and literally waiting for the grim reaper to come to the door.
That was almost 30 years ago. Now, more and more of my clients are calling me as they approach 60 and beyond. The startling and fabulous thing about most of them is, they are viewing this net phase of their life as an adventure.
There are tons of articles called, "Is 60 the new… Continue

Someone said, “We should teach our children Empathy” and went on to explain that children would then have compassion.
But in reality if we teach them to be “Vulnerable”... vulnerability leads to having feelings, which leads to having experiences… Continue

Was it a falling star or waning moon
That left a golden path in sky
To lead me to Your door?
Or holy ghost´s concealen paln
To leave the traces in the plain
Under blue corns, forget-me-nots,
Marked by the flight of humming birds,
The stepping stones across the pond
Unseen but to the word respond
Mongst water lillies and red fish
As if were left upon a wish -
Is it a wish who leaves a… Continue

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed. ~ Khalil Gibran

Inside Your soul there is a mirror
You see in it the Garden of Eden.
But You can enter through the glass
And be the gardener of trees and stars.
The dried earth being fertalised
By Your accord with Soul Divine,
The raindrops is the Holy Ghost,
The tears of joy bring fertile crops.
You are Your own architect -
But little garden of Your soul
Is reflected in the mirror
Of the Universal Eden -
It is a… Continue

There are so many wonderful ways to care for your skin. One of my favorite is working with oils. I spent many years in the cosmetic industry so I always experimented with different kinds of oils, These are just a few: Most of these oils may be used, in food, directly on the skin, in your bath or added to a product.
I have chosen a few oils, and their benefits.
Almond Oil; a light sweet oil
I just love the smell of almond. It is a gentle sweet aroma like… Continue

When you suffer the symptoms of anxiety or depression nothing seems quite right. It is like the picture on the wall is slightly crooked, and your perceptions of everything are slightly skewed. Thoughts and feelings can feel muted. It may have been a very long time since you remember feeling good or being happy. To get back to that happy place requires a bit of discipline.
When I ask my clients with anxiety or… Continue

Me? A Victim? No way! Continue
Achieving our desires, including love, career success and happiness, involves dissolving our blocks. We are naturally wired for love, success, happiness and security. However, we go about throwing all kinds of blocks and walls in our way based on fear. Wrapping ourselves in the cape of victimization is one of those blocks. Dissolving and transforming those inner victims of ours smooth’s the way to fulfillment.
No one likes to admit it, but we all…

Life has it's ups and downs, for sure. Sometimes the ups are way up and sometimes the downs can be a bit shocking. When we face the unknown, and don’t know what’s coming, particularly when we’ve had bad news, it's even more unsettling.
We look for answers, but when we don’t find any, we’re at a loss. When you are in crisis and don’t know where to go, or what to do, how do you make it through… Continue

In the United States, fall marks a trifecta of holidays that snowball, picking up speed as they carry us,—often chaotically—from October through the New Year. The party starts with the distinctly non-religious (some would say pagan) celebration of Halloween; progresses to the spiritually inclusive embracing of gratitude that is Thanksgiving; and culminates in various religious observances ranging from Christmas to Hanukkah to Kwanza. Sadly, long before we reach Thanksgiving day, we are… Continue

Any story is a wonderful enterprise. If it were not, we might give doubt to our very existence. Being able to “tell” a story--well, we could say that is something we humans do best. At the very least, as a form of entertainment, we tell stories with great regularity. Almost all of us do manage, in some way, to tell a bit of our story to others. What are we… Continue

Your heart place is a place where you feel loved and feel at peace at all times. It is a place where the angels and your guides live too. There is no anger and hate there. There is no ego present either. It's more of a place where you are thinking with your heart and not with your head. In the first part of the article, I will talk about the emotions and feeling that you may have, when not living in the heart place. The second part of the article will be the 6…

In this modern age, people are always looking for the miracle cure. The thing to make them look younger, reduce wrinkles, reverse sun damage, clear up blemishes, etc. There are more products on the market and procedures in the doctors’ office than we can count, dedicated to skin care.
With November being healthy skin month, it may be fitting to talk about what our faces are really telling us, before we head to the drug store or the plastic surgeon.
