I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve heard comments like “people are losing their minds,” or “folks are sure cracking up lately!” The last one is from my sweet Grandma. She says this almost every day when she watches the news. She does have a point – it definitely does seem that way, doesn’t it?
I noticed people losing their minds on the road, at the gas pump, and in grocery stores. There was also the women at the salon, talking on the phone with someone. Many people do seem to be so quick to anger. Some even go into a mad rage over their hamburger not being cooked right (as we heard recently on the news). Read the rest of this entry »
If you’re dealing with a recent job loss, please know that I do empathize with you, because I’ve been there! In February 2005, I was fired from my job as a pharmacist. After dealing with the initial shock, fear, and worry, and also getting myself clean and sober in May 2005, I came to develop a plan that worked for me. I call it the Four R’s: Regroup, Reflect, Recruit, and Recover.
After you’ve experienced the disgust surrounding your situation, you need to find ways to support yourself, not only in a financial sense, but spiritually as well. Read the rest of this entry »
When you were born you came to this planet operating in the higher dimensions. But as you grew up as a human, you began to function mostly in the 3rd dimension. So, if you are having a difficult time in this adult experience, remember what it was like to be a child.
Call forth those experiences of joy, of laughter, running through the sprinkler in the summertime, eating an ice cream cone in the hot sun, splashing in the lake, enjoying your life and being present. As a child no one needs to stop you and tell you to be present and breathe. Read the rest of this entry »
A few days ago, I was going through some old boxes and out fell a little scrap of paper. Curious, I picked it up, unfolded it and read the words I had written over a year ago. Now, I don’t remember writing this little note, or saving it for that matter. But what I found grabbed my consciousness and pulled me immediately into that present moment.
On this little note I had written things like, Do fulfilling work that feeds my soul and A home with lots of love and light, by the ocean and mountains and forests. It was a wish list. As I read through the items on this list, I realized that all of them had become a reality for me. I was amazed, and filled with gratitude!
Don’t get me wrong, I have my challenges and karmic lessons just like anyone else. Sometimes I forget to take stock and honor moments of gratitude for the many blessings in my life. While this ‘wish list’ shook me back into gratitude, it also got me thinking about something else – the power of intention. Read the rest of this entry »
As your ego is in the process of transformation, you will often find yourselves in the throes of fear or depression, or unrest. When the ego feels threatened, it is like a child throwing a temper tantrum, digging its heels in even more, wanting its energy to be expressed at a louder level.

She is here to assist you. As you honor and respect her, loving her, she will become your ally, your trusted true friend and will assist you in unending ways. Read the rest of this entry »
Many dreams are just a result of some of the mundane information we take in on a daily basis. These are usually the kind of dreams which make no sense at all.
Some dreams are simply reflective of both our fears and desires. For example, swimming close to sharks would be an obvious fear for most people, whereas winning the lottery is what a lot of folks would love to happen. Read the rest of this entry »
I thought today of how certain expressions tend to stick in our minds; thoughts which we adopt for a while, or even a lifetime. It can be the words of a famous writer we have read somewhere, an expression in a song, or even just the ideas of somebody we just had a brief conversation with.
Internationally renowned author and speaker, Wayne Dyer, once said, “You will never get everything done.” It’s a good feeling at the end of the day, to know that we’ve gotten through much on our ‘to-do list.’ But for me, I also gain some comfort from such as words of wisdom as Wayne Dyer’s, as well as the poem, Desiderata, which advises us to, “Go placidly amid the noise and the haste.” 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 »
