Do you know who you are? Do you know where you are and what you are doing here? Do you take the time to ask yourself these questions? Or, do you prefer to cruise through daily vicissitudes conveniently ignoring them?
It is ok if you do. In fact, it is ok no matter what you choose to do. It may just be of interest to…Continue
Putting a baby or a toddler to sleep for the night can be a challenging task. As babies, they may confuse night and day and sleep at the oddest hours. As toddlers, their own volition is blossoming, often not leaving much room for yours. Yet, as conscious parents, it is our responsibility to accompany our child to the oneiric realm with the utmost gentleness and care. It is more than just mere sleep, it is a soul voyage. This article takes for granted that you are a conscious parent,…Continue

"Hitler went to Heaven. When you understand this, you will understand God." from book 1 of the Conversations with God trilogy.
Some will be flabbergasted and outraged by such a statement. They will gather all their emotions and preconceptions about this delicate topic and read on armed with interjections and counter-arguments. It is ok for you to do this. However, if possible, I invite you to put your weapons down, check your ego at the door, go into your…Continue

There is a great number of people who – each morning – wake up, get up, go through the early morning motions on auto-pilot, dragging their feet to work, filling up on caffeine and polluting their systems throughout the day with unhealthy foods, but even more so with negative emotions. Each day, however, could be a perfect expression of our Buddha-nature. Each moment could be a divine opportunity for us to…
One of the greatest challenges for the human body is to maintain a physiologically acceptable acid-base balance. When we are born more than 80% of our body is made up of alkaline water, this to counteract the acids produced by cellular metabolism and digestion. Breast milk is alkaline to help this process. However, from the moment we stop breastfeeding, the downward spiral towards chronic acidity begins. The health and life of our cells are not compatible with an acidic…Continue
We live isolated in the Chianti countryside, in Tuscany, Italy. The most adventurous thing my 15-month old son may come across is a rare bug. While there are a dozen people living in the hamlet, the interactions are somewhat limited. Most of the hamlet's inhabitants are farmers and spend their days working in the fields. My…

There are so many books and articles filled with tips, strategies, and paradigms on how to evolve or find personal happiness and success. The 5-minute-a-day fix-it-all solutions usually turn out to be great sprinters, though disappointing in the long marathon of life. Evolution, happiness and success – by the Law of Attraction – can be ours instantaneously if the right energetic and spiritual…Continue
There are an infinite number of books written about conscious parenting and attachment parenting. Somehow the two concepts seem different but ultimately they say the same thing: nurture your child by listening, observing, reacting and interacting through your heart filled with love and anchored in the here and now. Conscious / Attachment parenting (CAP), in its varying approaches, rests upon the…Continue
When you feel maya nudging
Take refuge in the Breath
Let its waves calm you
Ground you in conscious Being
When you do not feel maya nudging
Still she rules your way
Take refuge in Forgiveness
She will save your day

“The processes of pain and disease cannot be mere unpleasant events, they inherently hold a purpose within an individual’s life strategy. The most common illnesses are therefore self-healing manifestations in progress. If this is true, it would suffice to let them be, trusting that ultimately a new balance will prevail.” Stefano Riccesi, “Anima e Cura: l’azione terapeutica”, p22…Continue
In a moment of stillness I hear the Universe
gentle words and sounds filled with Love.
In a child's smile I see the Golden Sun
exalting Life and vibrant Light.
In my unconsciouness I feel God
calling, accepting, encouraging
certain of my Awakening.

A young woman of 32 is watching her father deteriorate before her eyes. In the span of a week the tall, bulky, loquacious man she has known her entire life, is fully intubated, now immobilized in a sterile room of the ICU. A week ago, when he was rushed to the ER, doctors diagnosed his medley of malaises as Miller Fisher Syndrome. Once…Continue

If my thoughts have power
Let them crush me into nothingness
For I refuse to think
Therefore I will not be
If the darkness comes
Let the Light open the door
For resisting is doing
While allowing is accepting
If I am just breath
Let my lungs scream fear
For I call to me Love
the All Healing
If my thoughts have power
Let them be filled with Light
For they come from Love
They come to Heal

Every creature has its own food, and an appropriate alchemist with the task of dividing it ... The alchemist takes the food and changes it into a tincture which he sends through the body to become blood and flesh. This alchemist dwells in the stomach where he cooks and works. The man eats a piece of meat, in which is both bad and good. When the meat reaches the stomach, there is the alchemist who divides it. What does not belong to health he casts away to a special place, and sends the…Continue

My son, Gabriel, is almost 14 months old. For a little over a year I have been learning the most ancient and most difficult job of all: being a conscious mother.
As with other jobs, the first few months were the most difficult, requiring constant adjustments, willingness to let go of my own needs in order to be present for him, training myself to disregard thought and focus on my instinct. My heart knew what to do, I just had to stop rationalizing, trusting that my intention to be a…Continue
