Sweet Mystery of Life (and how it all works)

And the number of galaxies we can see, other than our own, is about 100 billion.” – Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at California’s SETI Institute I believe in intelligent design in the […]

When I read these articles about intuition, it feels like another way to pressure myself into being more spiritual. These articles seem […]

In the Waiting Room

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Pink ribbons adorn the stores, posters remind us to take care of ourselves. But I don’t need October to remind me of my ongoing relationship with the Big C. I am the last woman standing in my family. I am the youngest of two sisters, a mother and a […]

Playing with the IS-ness

Huh?  What’s that? –you ask. As we turn the focus of our attention back to our own quiet center, we are also re-turning our attention to the IS-ness: that which is arising in this moment.

Change Your Password

Do you ever have trouble remembering your password?? Why not use your passwords to give yourself an affirmation. Now that we have to log in for EVERYTHING, I have discovered that I remember mine much more easily when I use a positive affirmation–a feel-good statement–that makes me smile. Here’s how it works: Think of something […]

Finding Your True Abundance

Do you have enough of what you need to be happy? What else do you need? Money? A job? What is it? We can lose ourselves in the fear of not having enough–the fear of scarcity. Scarcity is a tight fist in the center of your heart with frozen fingers. Is it possible to loosen […]

My Favorite Question

I love it when people ask me: “What can I do to live a spiritual life?” I love it because it is so easy to answer. I’ve heard other teachers, self-help leaders, New Age spiritualists and gurus answer this question, too. Depending on their philosophy, their answers offer daily visioning practices, deep meditation, careful diet […]

The Power of the Story

Are you aware of the stories you tell yourself day-to-day and minute-to-minute?  It’s not your fault if you are not aware–nor are you bad/wrong/unenlightened–if you haven’t noticed it yet. The fact remains, most of the people who come to me for help with their lives  are living inside a story they are telling themselves about […]
