Grieving in Pieces

When we grieve -- and we do so only because we love -- the dimensions of that grief differ for each death without one being greater or lesser than another; we grieve from different parts of our heart for different reasons. The heart is not a cliche. People experiencing grief can distinguish its impact from momentary sadness. True grief brings with it a physical tension gnaws at us from the heart center. At various times of day when memories are triggered by different sensations,, none of…

Memorial for Ollie the Pit Bull

Ollie the pit bull was the victim of what Hollywood Florida police call the most vicious animal abuse case they have ever encountered.  Beaten and stabbed 50 times and left to die in suitcase, he was heard crying by two passersby who notified police and was taken to a local animal hospital for two surgeries, wagging his tail and kissing the staff as he clung to life.  Since then a  neighbor came forward with her account of hearing  the gruesome attack, of Ollie's screams and cries, Grateful…

Subtle Self Healing: Measuring Your Progress

App.740 words

Abstract:  Healing is not an earth shattering miracle brought to us by external forces.  Healing can be very subtle, a measurement of where we were and how far we have progressed, once we get ourselves out of the way and find distance.

People seek healers in doctors, metaphysicians, psychics, thinking that healing is a product they can purchase when in fact it is a process, an ongoing process that doesn't end. Our bodies, minds, and hearts…

Honoring the Darkness 916 words


In order to heal others, we must first heal ourselves, which involves agreeing to enter the darkness alone. There we find opportunities for enlightenment in the way of the great mythological heroes, shamans, and religious teachers. There we confront God.

Are You a Wellness Adventurer? Try These Holistic Healing Methods 832 words

Stop Struggling: 10 Tarot Cards to Move You Forward

  784 words

Often we think the external chaos we witness reflects our own internal strife, connecting us to the world’s pain when in fact it may be the opposite: the seeds of our discontent lie deep within us and we conveniently shift blame to others. Maybe life isn’t going right. We knock on locked doors: applying for elusive jobs, seeking moves without luck, stagnating in relationships, feeling alienated. We hit one more rocky patch or feel taken advantage of yet again. We then see…

Do Animals Have Souls? 733 words

In 2005, a young Ethiopian girl was abducted and severely beaten by a band of men trying forcing her into a marriage. In what some called a miraculous intervention, they were chased by three lions who came to her rescue and who continued to stand guard over her until she was discovered by authorities and returned to her family. According to the Associated Press, wildlife officer Stuart Williams attributed the girl’s rescue to her crying: “A young girl whimpering could be mistaken for the…

The Power of OM

If a tree falls in the forest, and there’s no one there to hear it fall, does it make a sound?  This question, historically posed to puzzle fledgling philosophy students, doesn’t take into account that sound is the primordial energy of the universe, existing before the evolution of physical life. Scientists now explain that after the big bang creation of the universe, sound not only preceded life but enabled it.    According to, “The early universe rang with the sound of countless…

Breath: Your Natural Healing Tool

“It’s like  breathing,” we say to illustrate the ease of a particular task or the acquisition of a new skill that isn’t really difficult.  From our initial entry into life, breathing is automatic, something we don’t prepare for or think about until we face a health crisis later in life or develop a respiratory condition that requires monitoring and medicating.  We know that breath is requisite for life, but the benefits of conscious breathing transcend the physical to include…

How to Build an Interior Life, and Why 780 words

Solitude is a mighty power, magnetic in its ability to draws to us (and through us) wisdom and voice of the Spirit. Whether it’s our own higher self, the guidance of angels and spirit guides, or the pure unfiltered voice of the Divine, when we connect to that energy, we  transform.  We become better than we think we are.   It is only when we eliminate the external noise of the world, when we lay aside the self-destructive chatter of our ego-self, that we can receive such wisdom. …

In Service or in Business: Straddling the Fine Line

840 words

Humans learned early  in their evolution that they can commodify everything,brand it, add a price tag, and compete in  the marketplace. From name brand tissues to coffee pods, inventors become entrepreneurs, identifying a market  and creating products to benefit that market, hopefully drawing income. The laws of supply and demand have kept us well stocked as well as inspired invent greater goods, but are all of our products literally for the greater good?…

Transitioning with Grace

In The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying Sogyal Rinpoche identifies a primary problem in western society: a deeply embedded aversion to death. We teach ourselves how to live, he says, but our lessons fail to include dying, which other cultures approach with reverence as part of life. We avoid talk of death until we meet it head-on and at that point, we succumb to fear and panic. We are unprepared. An obvious reflection of this is society’s refusal to accept aging; we cannot allow ourselves to…

Your Spirit Guides: A Blessing in Every Step

This is a true story about a middle aged man who was suffering from serious  heart problems and facing a stiff prison term for interstate mail fraud.  He was driving a long stretch of highway in Southwest Florida when he spotted a gas station with a convenience store and decided it was a good time to gas up and stock up on some snacks for the rest of the trip. He was not a spiritual person; in fact, he had practiced no religion or tradition for most of his life.  A black car pulled up  to…

Are You a Wellness Adventurer? Try These Hands-On Healing Methods

You're not feeling well, but you can't identify the precise cause or condition. You know, however, it's not completely physical. For that you might see a medical doctor. It's not just psychological or emotional; to address those issues you would visit a counselor or psychotherapist. What you experience is some kind of knot in your center, slowing you down. You’re tired, blah, sad, feeling an unspecified malaise. You don’t need an aspirin or a Xanax. What you need is a healing – not a cure,…

Simple Techniques to Release Negative Energy

SIMPLE TECHNIQUES TO RELEASE NEGATIVE ENERGY Picture yourself coming home from a walk in piled high snow. You collect "stones" of snow on your boots or shoes. While the powdery stuff leaves you with every step, by the time you get to your front door your shoes are covered with velcro--like balls of snow that cling. The same happens after walking through mud or moist earth. As it dries to a powder, it flies away from you, but when as you approach your threshold, thick residue has molded to…

Natural Separations: When Relationships Fail

Sometimes we grow out of relationships.  It can feel like it’s happening against our conscious will because it's driven by a subconscious awakening, a soul level fulfillment of our commitment to ascend in this lifetime.  We exit for many reasons: different paths beckon us,  our circumstances change financially, socially, or spiritually, or we decide that we can no longer tolerate relationship inertia. Moving on is a brave step.  But what about those of us…
