A very good friend passed away recently. She left behind five children, and each of them was questioning why they didn’t do more to help their mom prolong her life, despite the fact that this very loving soul was in pain most of the time and had an extremely lonely existence.
She no longer had what one might call a ‘good quality of life.’ But they have taken it upon themselves to hold one another responsible to keep her on this plane, when it was becoming increasingly clear she was so very prepared to leave.
We discussed the situation at length and some of the siblings were finally convinced their mother’s time of passing had very little to do with them. If they had no bearing as to when she entered the planet, why on earth would they have a say as to when she could leave? Read the rest of this entry »
‘Forgettery’ is a game we all engage in from time to time. We see this game played out in relationship dramas, career concerns, or even just in a sense of generalized anxiety. It occurs when we forget who we really are, and find ourselves out of alignment with our Soul.
It can manifest in feelings of not being enough – a victim, not smart enough, being broken, or disconnected and separate from others. In my daily Tarot card draws, it often comes up for me as the Star card reversed, or maybe the Eight, or Nine of Swords.
So what happens when we find ourselves here? The first step out is to recognize what is happening. Once we can acknowledge this ‘not-so-good’ feeling, we can sit with it for a while and then recognize that this feeling is coming from our thoughts… and thoughts can be changed. We are deserving and worthy of everything we desire. Why not? We can heal this. Read the rest of this entry »
It is easy within your family unit to take advantage of each other, if you will. To be impulsive, selfish, focused only within your own desires.
There is a new energy here on your planet. Open to receive the attunement, the alignment, the ascension. As you experience this expansion of your soul, the drama in your life will begin to fade and the disconnection, the disharmony, the selfishness will dissolve and move out.
Those you are to be aligned with, reunited with, and those you are to commune with, will begin to gather in small units, in small pods. So, do not be alarmed, all is in perfect and Divine order. The ego is fading, transforming. Your soul is awakening.
Rejoice in finding your soul families. Rejoice in making new connections within your current families. Do not try to hang onto those who are no longer serving your higher purpose. The contracts within your family unit have now been completed. Those of you who are working toward the healing of the planet are gathering together and your energy needs to be focused within that plan. Read the rest of this entry »
Accepting divorce as a reality is an important step in the healing process. One must mourn the loss of what could have been, but you don’t want to get stuck in the past, because it won’t change anything.
Acceptance is the most difficult step that one must take in releasing the past and begin a new chapter of life. Acceptance involves things like blame, resentment, and regret. We have the option to let go of negative emotions, which will give us the freedom to move forward.
So, now you are divorced, do you choose to stay bitter and hurt? No, you work through it and regain your strength, so that you can find yourself again. I know this is easier said than done, but nothing in this life is accomplished without some effort. You have one life to live, and you get to decide how you want to live it.

Many years ago I had the blessed experience to work with a Native American shaman. I had to travel deep into a canyon in Arizona. This particular canyon cannot be accessed without a tribal member as escort. I was picked up in a jeep and whisked off to an area surrounded with red rock cradled in Aspen trees.
The canyon cliffs shot up hundreds of feet into the sky, eagles flew overhead, trees whispered the message of the wind, and streams of clear water bubbled over the river rock.
Amidst the beauty of this place there was also great poverty. Children stood in the streams selling beads and various artifacts made from the surrounding nature. Packs of wild dogs ran wild, seeking food. I had one thing on my mind: enlightenment. Yet, I was disturbed by what I saw around me. Read the rest of this entry »
After my youngest daughter left home, I certainly had a case of the ’empty nest syndrome’ for a short period of time. I chided myself, for I felt the same way when my oldest daughter moved out. I had that feeling of ‘someone was missing’ and ‘nothing is the same.’ However, this time it was different, for it dawned on me that I had never lived alone before.
I have been putting off writing this blog. It still hurts to write about losing my dog, Chopper, in October of 2016. It stays with me. Clearly, I am not over this loss. If a dog can be a soulmate, Chopper was one of mine. Is this a metaphysical topic for a metaphysical blog? I would say yes. How much more spiritual can building a loving relationship with another creature be? And them allowing you to sit with them while they pass?
I met Chopper when he was two years old. He was at a shelter a couple of hours away from my home. His foot was injured from trying to paw his way out of the kennel and he had non-contagious mange. He smelled awful! Read the rest of this entry »
Some people had an idyllic childhood and they often wish they could return to that time of playful bliss, loving parents, guiding teachers and wonderful friends. But for others, the past is a horror-strewn path of destructive behavior, with insurmountable adult problems thrust upon them at a tender age. For them the past was a time of much emotional distance or cruelty at home. These memories are indelibly imprinted on the souls of the survivors, but with a much different feeling to be sure.
Although many can put their painful past in perspective, some relive those experiences day after day, harboring hatred and resentment. Read the rest of this entry »
