We can learn a lot from children, when we look at things from their perspective. There are five special little ones in my life: three granddaughters and two grandsons, who range in ages from 6 years to 1 month.
Many women in my age group, known as the Baby Boomers, were so busy trying to get a career going, as well as have a family. We thought we could do it all, but we missed many of the little things that our children had to teach us. I was not immune to this.
Now that I have grandchildren in my life, and I have the ability to take the time to see things differently, I have learned many life lessons.
Lesson 1 – Count Your Blessings
This past weekend, I had my two year old granddaughter here for the weekend. She has been diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis and has a variety of medicines that she is taking. I am so sad when I watch this young child suffer needlessly, because of a disease that she should never have had in her life. She can be happy and running one minute, and then stopped in her tracks and unable to get up the next. Read the rest of this entry »
We are all different. Each person is a piece of the puzzle that creates a group. All people are raised different. People may have different spiritual beliefs, different educational backgrounds, jobs, nationalities. Yet, if the common goal is the same, there is no reason why we cannot achieve much more in our world. Some of us simply need to find a way to respect diversity.
Spiritual groups tend to be the especially challenging when it comes to diversity. Too often spiritually-minded people are expected to always agree with everyone about everything, in order to promote goodwill among group members and keep the peace. But in any group people have to learn how to agree to disagree. It’s always okay to have your own opinion and express how you feel. One must just remember that not all of the group may agree with your thoughts. Read the rest of this entry »
Spirit is everywhere and our Guides are supporting us as we meander through this path we call life. Learn more as one of my Guides elaborates on trust:
“Although we are omnipresent, we do not intervene in your day-to-day life. You are on your own special journey and we must not interfere. We are available, however, to guide, guard and protect you when you need us most.
Remember, though, that you have chosen the people, places and events that you wish to experience while on the earth plane. We watch with interest as you navigate the twists and turns that you have orchestrated. Read the rest of this entry »
You are enough. If only, as we grew up, we had heard more such words, even if there was an additional “… and yet strive for more”. The fact is we were raised in a world where competition is prevalent; where our insecurities are often emphasized to us, or used as leverage (intentionally or otherwise); where our personal beliefs about ourselves potentially delays our soul evolution.
As partners in the Universe we say to ourselves, “Everything has a reason, we each have a soul purpose, all is in Divine Order.” Yet, when a tragedy or life shattering moment hits, we are so intimately impacted that we have to dig deep to console ourselves and try to reframe that that tragedy has a Divine purpose, and that you have enough and are enough in that moment.

Humans have an electro-magnetic energy field, which is why we have medical technology like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. In Chinese philosophy and Taoism it is believed that this energy field consists of the dualistic energies of Yin and Yang. They are direct opposites, but also interdependent and complimentary to each other. We need good a balance of the two for optimal well-being, happiness and personal fulfillment.
Yang energy is the electric, active energy, full of outward movement. Too much Yang can make a person overbearing, impatient, impulsive. American culture tends to worship Yang energy. Think of slogans like “Just do it” and “No fear.” Read the rest of this entry »
Courage is a choice. It is available to all of us, not just a select few. Courage begins with the desire to want something different in your life, something more. Courage often comes when we get tired of being beaten down and are ready to rise up and claim the powerful being that you are.
In every moment you have the right, the power, the choice to be courageous, or weak. Sometimes courage is not bold, or loud, or executable. Sometimes courage is quiet, and graceful, and still. Courage is not always the bull in the China shop, but the mouse in the corner watching and waiting. Courage comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it’s a word, a look, or the way you hold yourself. Sometimes it is the unspoken words, or the action left undone. It is easy to let ego overpower you and run rampant with your words and actions. It takes courage and grace to pause, and take a deep breath, and then proceed with thought and loving intention. Read the rest of this entry »
I always tell my clients to start the day by choosing joy. When we are in the vibration of joy or love we begin higher on the vibrational scale, and when we hold one energy we cannot hold another. So, when we are in the vibration of joy, we can’t be in fear, dreading or doubt. The reverse is true. When we are in fear, we don’t feel love or joy.
I recommend a very sweet exercise that produces great results when we practice it, not only with words, but also by adding feeling and a sense of allowing. As with any exercise I use myself, or offer to my clients, I like to make it playful. So let’s play!
In the evening before you go to bed, when you have your PJs on, or first thing in the morning, make yourself comfortable and think of something that raises your vibrational state to one of joy. Put aside any doubts or resistance. Then in your journal, or on a pretty paper, and with your favorite pen, you can write down how you want your day to progress while holding this high vibe.

I have great faith in the emotional healing power of plants, their oils and how they can have a powerful effect on your well-being. The amazing healing properties of flowers, in particular, can be used to activate our body’s energy centers, otherwise known as the chakras.
Known as Muladhara, you will find this particular chakra at your spine’s base. Consider it, if you would, the very plug that connects you to the life force of the Earth herself and assists you to remain grounded. When this chakra is in balance, you should feel secure and stable. Should it become imbalanced, however, you may feel somewhat stuck (or lost) in life and find yourself focusing on subjects that do not serve your greatest interests. Read the rest of this entry »
