“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” ~Kahlil Gibran
Have you ever wondered why it feels good to give and help others out or if there are actual measurable benefits for the giver as well as the receiver? Do we lose true altruism if all parties benefit? Want to feel better? Live longer? Dodge a bad mood? Lift yourself up? It’s easy. Go help someone else!
Have you ever had an encounter with raccoons? I am fascinated by raccoons. I became interested in raccoons when I was camping in Oklahoma. They visited our supplies one night and had a great feast. We had made sure our supplies were secure. They kept testing our resolve the following nights.
I started admiring raccoons. I even painted a raccoon to express how much I admire their nature. They are smart, curious, creative, and focused. These are also some attributes that…Continue

As you know, each one of us has psychic and healing abilities. Like all other endeavors in our lives, if we choose not to use them we will forget how to use them. Perhaps there has been a time in your life when you were very intuitive but it frightened you and you wanted to shut it off. You would still receive messages, have a feeling but now instead of paying attention to it you likely brushed it aside, allowing your ego to convince you it was all your imagination. You may have wanted…Continue

To pin down your style of how you relate emotionally, it’s important to know your emotional type. This is the filter through which you see the world, the default setting of your personality that you revert to, especially during stress. It represents your basic tendencies. You can build on these by making the most of your best traits and adopting traits from the other types that appeal to you.

Even though it was only diagnosed about fifty years ago it seems that most people today have either dealt with or at least heard about ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Now there are variations of this disorder including AD/HD and ADD but basically the key behavioral signs in children are inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Adults with ADHD often exhibit signs of depression, mood swings, anger and relationship issues, poor time management skills, and procrastination.…Continue

Within my bubble of protection
I look around and see
A storm of turmoil brewing
For all of humanity
There is struggle, hurt and pain
As fears, rapidly compound
Everywhere I look
There are unhappy people found
With a blink in vision
I choose to look again
And see a different story
One without an end
Each of us adapting
From somewhere far within
We begin to learn and grow
We heal the past and win
At last we recognize…Continue

"Ritual and ceremony can bridge our past and our present elegantly, making it possible for folks like you and me to travel through life, honoring the good and bad times we’ve been through. They can help us become human “well-beings,” ready to take on more life and liberty and ready to pursue our happiness.- Carl Jung
December brings the beginning of winter with the winter solstice marking the shortest day and longest night of the year. To the ancient agrarian societies this day…

When you think of the word survival what picture comes to mind? Mine looks like a lone battle against something that brings me pain, where I am just existing and managing to get by each day and I am certainly far from happiness and peace.
In relationships (and the clue is in the word!), relating through words and body language is our only means of staying connected to our tribe, community and indeed those close to us. We have to be able to relate to belong and feel felt by…Continue

« Vigilance » is the second of a series of short segues that I have composed in order to combine already existing pieces into one larger, continuous whole.
Each of the segues highlights a quality or an ability cultivated along a difficult journey, contributing to the successful completion of the challenge.
Again, I won’t reveal the title of the parts, nor of the completed collage, hoping to keep the surprise…Continue

Being acutely aware of your soul’s connection to the Universe is rapidly gaining new respect and understanding. In a way that has little to do with religion and more to do with unity, morality and spiritual responsibility. The transformation we have been experiencing as the new era kicks in has gained both momentum and recognition by leaps and bounds. Because of our spiritual and…Continue

When most people think about learning to Meditate, they think about learning “to do” something. Why do we always think that we have “to do” all that just naturally happens, all that just naturally flows? Learning “to do” Meditation, and then thinking we are not “doing” it right, being self critical to the point of self-condemnation, is totally anti-meditation. What you are getting out of this so called meditation is the opposite of…Continue

How much is that Lucky Cat in the Window?
You see them everywhere you go, especially in Korean, Japanese and Chinese restaurants. In the West they just seem like decorative objects in the shape of a cat that waves at you. To the Asian cultures these cats, known as Lucky or Beckoning Cats, represent much more. They carry a certain energy…Continue
