May-June 2017

A dear friend, and our business coach, recently took us through an “eye-of-the-storm” meditation. It was the perfect remedy; exactly what I needed to be reminded that we have a choice to engage in the seeming chaos swirling around us or remain calm and centered at the eye of the storm. What was so impactful about the meditation was the embodiment … [Read more...]

Reclaiming the Sacred

“Indeed, it is the most difficult thing in the entire human experience—to claim your Self, your Life, your Light, your Truth and your God.” ~ Emmanuel A hospice nurse was in the room with my sister when our dad drew his last breath.

What We Practice

We wish we were happy but we practice being unhappy. We wish we were enlightened but we practice being separate and unenlightened. We tend to practice all the things we say we don’t want: anxiety, judgment, unhappiness and unworthiness. We practice being separate, which becomes part of our identity and belief system. Our actions and way of being … [Read more...]

March-April 2017

March-April 2017 Sometimes when I initiate Reiki Senseis, they will call or email me post-attunement and tell me they are feeling anxious. I usually tell them to describe the physical sensations without putting a label on it. When I talk them into a place where they are able to let go of the mind’s tendency to label, they become comfortable … [Read more...]

The Creator

When the artist says, “I am the Creator! I created this work of art” and the work of art says, “I am a work of art, the Creator created me and I create my world”, who then, is the Creator? What happens in your world when you hear or read something that causes you to look at your life differently? Are we ever really the same after being presented … [Read more...]

Love in Action: An Empowered Matrix

We are in strange and challenging times. It seems that just when bonds were deepening and new threads of connection were being formed, fear and small-minded thinking now threaten to unravel our foundation as a nation. Yet born of such crisis, women are uniting, empowered and joyously strong! Perhaps it is for these times that Eckhart Tolle wisely … [Read more...]

January-February 2017

Do you ever sit and ponder the nature of human behavior and just laugh? We are really curious creatures, aren’t we? It has been said that the natural tendency of living organisms is to seek pleasure and avoid pain. It sounds logical, but is it really true? Sure, there are the kinds of pleasures that are circumstantial, stuff we can buy, … [Read more...]

Finding Comfort in Impermanence

“Nothing exists in and of itself but depends on a series of causes and conditions, each one interdependent and connected to all others. This interdependence of all things makes it so that all phenomena are in a constant state of change.” HH The 14th Dalai Lama Many religions and practices refer to impermanence as an unavoidable truth that can … [Read more...]

September-October 2016

September-October 2016: It has been like that lately. Lots of opportunities to see where I still need to expand my consciousness. And I mean LOTS. It can feel frustrating to feel like I need to surrender, yet again. But balance is not something you create one time and you’re done. As we approach another election, I can’t help but think how many … [Read more...]

Ask the Oracle September-October 2016

We bless you with great fire. I am Pele and it is my scared duty to ignite the flame of transmutation. I set fire to your mind brother, for it has indeed been an impediment in the unfolding of your true nature. Allow the flame to enter your being and burn away the tightly held beliefs of the past. Use me. Surrender to my fire and arise from the … [Read more...]
