Resistance Has No Power

February 3, 2023 | COMMENTS
One of the craziest ego blocks I know of is when we have resistance and reluctance to our own happiness and healing. And yet, at least for me, it used to come up all the time.   It’s that feeling... Read More

Direct Path To Success

February 2, 2023 | COMMENTS
So often people define success as something achieved on the outside.  Success in the world is what most people think of.  Fame, fortune, real estate, etc.  In my year-long Masterful Living Program we redefine what success means to us.  ... Read More

Dog Tricks

February 1, 2023 | COMMENTS

The most beautiful thing I know

January 29, 2023 | COMMENTS

I AM Not A Body, But I Have One

January 28, 2023 | COMMENTS
Last week I recorded and published an episode of my A Course in Miracles Podcast called  Body Beliefs: Obstacles to Peace - Part 6. And then I got sick.  It’s pretty spiritually funny.  Some might say it’s a coincidence.  And yet we know there’s... Read More

Being A Great Receiver

January 27, 2023 | COMMENTS
I used to be an over-giver.  I’d give to depletion.  I saw it all around me in spiritual community and the model of the over-giver was that "this is what being super spiritual looks like.”  It took me some time, but... Read More

Awakening Joyfully

January 25, 2023 | COMMENTS

Finding A Direct Path

January 22, 2023 | COMMENTS
Yesterday, I was recording an episode of my A Course in Miracles Podcast and the subject was Body Beliefs.  It’s so interesting to me how our willingness to let the false beliefs go opens our awareness to what’s Real and what’s not.... Read More

Being Our True Selves

January 21, 2023 | COMMENTS

The Attraction of Guilt

January 13, 2023 | COMMENTS
I’ve just recorded a new podcast episode about the Attraction of Guilt.  It’s not the attraction TO guilt, but OF guilt.  Guilt, the belief in it, the feeling of it, attracts more of it’s own kind.  Like attracts like.   A... Read More
