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 »

  There is much I feel when I am with the sea.  There is a timelessness, an eternity, that covers my soul as the tides cover the shoreline.  I am often lost in thought – wondering about things that were, or are, or might be… I can sense my heart and soul with every gentle breeze or rushing wind… I can smell the salted air and taste the ocean on my lips.  I feel it all and know the infinite… 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 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. But when I saw that I had been tagged in a post, I found I had no choice but to accept the challenge: “Today I nominate Dani Pring, Jill Alman-Bernstein and Arielle Manzi to begin the challenge where you name 3 things you are grateful for for the next 5 days and nominate 3 people to join in each day. Finding something… Read more »

I have been pondering one of my catch phrases …. “Dive deep.” Meaning is a subjective thing. We give everything in our life meaning by the value we place on it.   So I asked myself, what is the value of diving deep into my heart and soul? The painful unraveling of the puzzle of who I am, chiseling the layers of self protection to discover that essence, where every breath, if I let it, helps shatter the illusions, the non… Read more »
