Faced with a painful set of unusual physical symptoms we land in our doctor’s office anxious and afraid. We feel our mind-body-spirit is not our own. Whether it is invasion by an environmental toxin, our Central Nervous System (CNS) menaced by an unknown source, or a new disease which our doctors are puzzled by, we wear incredibly thin wrestling with the dilemma of a healing crisis. Repeatedly telling our health story and finding…Continue

Understanding this concept we uncover his secrets of the soul, which holds…Continue
Chaos, vitriol, and heated emotions rule the day, or minute, if we plug into social media. With the highly controversial election season passing, we find ourselves grappling with our citizenry marching closer toward Civil War. One doesn’t have to look too hard to find evidence of this; Native Americans protect their water and sacred grounds at Standing Rock, the largest women’s rights march occurs on the capitol, and cities like Seattle, Chicago, and New York designate their streets…Continue
If the reader is thinking, this will never work for me, think again. Heart Alchemy is a sacred experience which has been used since the 3rd Century B.C. It helps us travel inward into the life of our own magical heart. Heart Alchemy doesn’t mess with karma because we’re not trying to trap another soul in a relationship where they don’t belong. That would be more like sorcery. We’re pouring loving intent into our heart, which is no less virtuous than finding the elixir of…Continue
We live in a world where highly sensitive people (also known as Sensory Processing Sensitivity) are the minority. Doctors suggest approximately 15 - 20 percent of the population. Since we make up a much smaller part of the whole, it's our job learning how to not only get by, but thrive in an insensitive world. Taking care of our delicate selves is our responsibility. Knowing this changes everything.
In another dimension, we existed where the popular “beginner books” featured a family of friendly bears who taught children about morality and life lessons. They were titled, The Berenstein Bears. In another, we saw news where Nelson Mandela the tireless apartheid activist passed away during his incarceration in Africa. We may have also learned about Greenland and Iceland in geography. And then, there was Svalbard.
If you think that the books titled The Berenstain Bears…Continue
How to Identify their Energy Pattern
Since 2012 there have been more than 90 school shootings alone. That doesn't include other large-scale massacres like bombings. The violent nature of tragic shootings continues to make nightly news, and the aftermaths are increasingly televised, numbing our psyches.

When working and playing in the realms of a gifted child as parents or as therapists we can rest assured our kids will show us what their creative places, called realms, look and feel like. We only need to learn how to read the maps and signs into their physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual development.
Gifted kids might need a little help and special…Continue
Champions don’t become champions in the ring. They are recognized there. In our boxing ring, the entertainment industry, a performer hears the sound, “Action!” instead of a fight bell. This cues an actor to penetrate through the camera. Bringing scripts to life is our job. From Audrey Hepburn’s charming and charismatic performance as Holly Golightly in Breakfast Tiffany’s (1961) to Matthew McConaughey’s dramatic transformed hustler Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club (2013),…Continue
What the world needs now are real spiritual Change Makers, not fierce individualists searching for wealth as a justified end goal of enlightenment. Although wealth and personal success are great vehicles for conscious change, the major pitfall of popular New Age movies like ‘The Secret’ are blatant promotion of wealth as a singular positivity-raising standard which exemplifies spiritual expansion. This particular movie has contributed to a lot of good-natured people living…Continue

You might feel like a teeter-totter swinging between the hope of new change and a force of counter-will pulling…Continue
Robin Williams’s death is a viral shock wave spreading around the globe. The day the sheriff made the announcement, my brain heard his name and rejected it. Hearing the strange words, “Robin Williams has died” registered as foreign and I couldn’t absorb them. I told myself on a gut level, “I don’t live in a world where Robin Williams doesn’t exist” to avoid feeling the sudden pain that…Continue
