Moving Onward and Upward

September 17, 2021 | COMMENTS

When People Let You Down

Being In the Flow of Good

September 13, 2021 | COMMENTS
I have learned the power of asking for what you’d like. However, it only works well when we don’t have an attachment to what we’d like to experience. When there’s an attachment, then there’s something to heal. It’s so helpful... Read More

Redemption

August 28, 2021 | COMMENTS
Sometimes people treat me poorly.  They’re unkind.  Folks can be blaming, shaming, they can lie and make stuff up.  People hurl all kinds of attack thoughts - spoken and unspoken. And yet, I do not wish to succumb to responding... Read More

Rising Above Conflict

August 27, 2021 | COMMENTS

Turn the Other Cheek

August 25, 2021 | COMMENTS
We’ve all experienced having someone attack us in a way that seems completely unjustified. The temptation is to defend and/or retaliate. What if instead of either of those choices were to see the attack as a cry for Love? What... Read More

Giving UP Resistance

August 23, 2021 | COMMENTS
I know I say this often, but one of the things I’m most grateful for is my ability to say “yes" and not hesitate. It wasn’t always the way I operated, for a LONG time I let resistance and reluctance... Read More

Drinking Poison

New Dawn

Monday felt pretty crazy. Even my puppy, Bodhi, behaved in a crazy way. She was barking at me while I was teaching a class. She’s never barked at me before, but she wanted to play with me and wanted me... Read More

Living A Guided Life

August 17, 2021 | COMMENTS
People often tell me that they don’t receive guidance from Spirit that they can recognize and it’s frustrating for them. First, we don’t receive guidance we recognize largely because we don’t want to “hear” it.  We don’t wish to be... Read More

Power of Forgiveness

August 16, 2021 | COMMENTS

Putting An End to Pain

No pain no gain is understandable in exercising. I’ve experienced the benefits of learning how to tell beneficial pain in a workout and pain that is a signal that there’s damage occurring. When we’re having a spiritual workout - repatterning... Read More

Crusader for Self-Love

July 15, 2021 | COMMENTS
Most people fall into self-medication at one time or another, and for some people it’s a very addictive and compulsive habit that is demoralizing self-sabotage that keeps us playing small and feeling shameful. Enough!! There are many forms of self-sabotage... Read More
