Open your eyes. Look around you. Check in with yourself about how you are feeling – are you centered, are you tired, do you feel refreshed, are you ready to step forward in your day? It is important to see things clearly, and to understand what is real, what “is.”  It is not uncommon for us to think about the past, to wonder “what if,” or to imagine or fantasize about something or someone that we want.  But when you… Read more »

So often we search for something that will make us feel better, something that will make us feel inspired, loved.  I was watching the Dr. Wayne Dyer movie “The Shift” the other day. There were so many things that he talked about that made me laugh, cry, and think. But his words about how everything we needed was given to us in the womb resonated deeply for me.  That during those nine months of our development, we are given everything… Read more »

It has been such a long time since I have really written anything… I have been thinking about that lately, and feeling that it might be time to dive in to my heart that feels so broken, shattered from the loss of my father, and the shifts of life that have rippled from that loss.  A friend sent me a book shortly after my father died… “How to Heal A Grieving Heart” by Doreen Virtue and James Van Praagh.  It… Read more »

We begin our very physical existence in water.  It is in the womb that we are surrounded by the gentle, soothing fluid that allows our consciousness to develop, our human-ness to form.  There is something so beautiful, natural, and serene about being one with the nature of life itself.  There is an inherent truth to an integral return to that from which we came, that from which we developed and discovered ourselves, that from which our consciousness is at home… Read more »

Swimming through the currents of life can be quite difficult at times. The turbulent waters can be challenging, the rough and choppy rushing of the waves can undermine the strongest of foundations, testing our resolve, our confidence, and our very outlook. Not one of us is immune to the tangled ropes, the discomfort of walking rocky shores, the sting of seaweed wrapped around our mermaid forms, or even the bite from a fellow soul of the sea. Yet despite the… Read more »

  I am of the sea, my body sea foam and sparkling algae, rises to the surface each time the sun greets the waves’ cresting arch. I am of the sea, I am water through and through, I glide, I shimmer, I float. I ride the ebbs and flows, I am carried as a child in its mother’s womb, the tide, washing me out and ashore cleansing all that is not necessary, all that does not belong to water, out… Read more »

I find myself searching.  I find myself, searching.  Searching for a light, a path, a way to personal peace, serenity, happiness.  The sun rises and the skies brighten; yet I awake with a heavy heart, my soul unsettled, it questions.  With both feet on the ground now I take stock of how I feel.  My muscles and joints ache.  There is sadness in my heart. And so I begin the daily search – I breathe, deep breaths, to cleanse my soul,… Read more »

The sea is where I find my quiet and stillness. It is where I can feel the wind kiss my skin, and where the secrets of the ocean’s tides can be heard as they carry a message to the shore and my soul. At the sea, my thoughts and feelings are crystallized; yet seem to freely flow as the tides flow with ease. Everything at the sea moves. The water, the air, the sounds of the currents covering and uncovering… Read more »

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.  Don’t go back to sleep!
”  ~Rumi We experience things – traumas, hardships, heartbreak…  and they wake us up for a while.  We are able to see our world with a new perspective and open heart and soul, our minds accepting an expanded consciousness…. a boundless terrain of possibilities and options.  And then it is as if we are overwhelmed or overloaded, or that our minds cannot make sense of any more,… Read more »

Oh, no! It’s the Positivity Challenge! I actually have been dreading this … hoping to not get nominated.
