I love plants and enjoy sharing space with them. I several in my home and take very good care of them. I’m mindful to water them around the same time every week and I even talk to them. In many ways, I look at them as my friends.
I live in a home that doesn’t get much sunshine, so I have selected plants that require low light. While they never receive any direct sunlight, they are thriving like champs and are healthy and happy.
Plants are much like people in that sense. Some of us require a lot of people around us to be happy, the same way some plants need lots of sunshine. But some of us require lots of quiet, alone time, like some plants prefer the shade. We all recharge and thrive in different ways. Read the rest of this entry »
Remember when you were a child and you couldn’t wait for the new day to come, so that you could begin again exploring, learning, experiencing so many new and joyful things?
As you get out of bed and firmly plant your feet on the floor, feel the change in your energy. Instead of dreading the million and one things you are to do for today, choose to be joyous, free and excited to begin again.
This past year has been the best! It is amazing to see what happens when we live with eyes and heart wide open. We experience more synchronicity, calmness, joy, and peace. We go from go, go, go, and do, do, do, to being fully present.
We too often choose to ignore the little voice inside that tells us things like, “Don’t go out, stay in!” or “Don’t do that, do this instead.” That inner voice is what most people call your intuition or inner guidance. I think of it as God within.
When we are clear-headed and keep from chaos and drama, and set healthy boundaries with others, we actually can hear that voice much more clearly. Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever considered the fact that you always have a best friend around you – at all times, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? You do! But you may not ever have thought that way. We have no reason to ever feel isolated or lonely.
I remember growing up never having a best friend. Or having one, but then losing that friend to other, more normal, interesting or sociable people. And then I always wound up feeling sad.
But all along I already had a best friend: the Divine Presence, the Universe, God. This presence manifests itself through people, places, things and events in our everyday lives. This is how we know it is there. Read the rest of this entry »
We all have a soul light that is eternal and bright. It shines through our physical being when we are aligned with our authentic self. We are all individually created to be different from one another. If we can remember that, especially when others appear to reject us, we’ve accessed the key to unlock our soul archetype.
When we compare ourselves to others, we get off track and can try to muster up a fictitious self that becomes impossible to uphold. It creates expectations that trap us, and can actually prevent us from shining our own, unique light into the world.
Have you ever felt like you are different, or don’t fit in? The first step to finding your authentic self, and tracing back to who you are as a unique soul, is to detach from others. Sometimes there is a feeling of loneliness associated with this, but if you keep moving forward, and through it, and trust in what’s unfolding, you will land in a place where true confidence resides – the kind that can never be taken away. You will gain a self-respect that will allow your gifts and talents to flourish. Read the rest of this entry »
As a parent, I’m very familiar with the disciplinary technique known as the time-out. I personally do not use this method for my two children, but I’ve read lots of parental literature that discusses the concept. I’ve also dealt with daycare providers and teachers who use this technique with their students.
I recently had some difficult feelings surface in my own life, as I continue to work on my crown chakra. After doing some craniosacral work, I experienced feelings of unworthiness considering my new career path. I heard a toxic inner voice whispering, “You’ll never be good enough, no matter which career path you choose.”
Then I took a time-out. I took some days off from doing psychic work. I walked. I had a massage. I nourished my soul. Read the rest of this entry »
Work, family, friends and intimate relationships can take their toll on everyone, but can send an empath into a tail spin. It’s crucial for an empath to be clear which feelings and emotions are coming from them, as opposed to those coming from someone else.
Empaths have been compared to sponges soaking up all the energy and feelings surrounding them. Sooner or later the sponge becomes saturated and cannot absorb any more. Instead of finding a spiritual practice that resonates for them, some empaths will shut down or self-medicate with food, alcohol or excessive caffeine in order to feel relief.

Many of you desire a romantic partner in your life and we know that this can be a beautiful experience. But we also know that sometimes in your life it isn’t about being with someone outside of yourself. It is about being with that which you are – creating a beautiful relationship with your soul, with your spirit, with your higher self.
Let go of your attachments to wanting things to be different than they are. Be present in your life now. Find the gifts that this present moment brings you, whether you are in a relationship or not.
You are whole and complete. You are an aspect of divinity. There is nothing broken and nothing needs to be fixed. And there is no one you need to complete you. You are complete. You are the perfect and the perfection. Read the rest of this entry »
