This month's topic is WOTV is Making a Heart Smile Collage, so what is this and why are we doing it?  Read the press release here for details. I have felt so many times in my life that I don't always know my purpose.  What can I do to best serve our higher

Typically I blog on the 1st of every month, however, this month, as we are discussing Women's Health, I have been neglectful. I am a late arriver to the party. This has been a very busy month for me, as one of my sons and his fiance got married. It has t

Hi, my name is Ana Lewis and I am the founder of WomenontheVerge.net (WOTV). As I say that sentence, I expect to hear you say, “Hi Ana,” in the same monotone voice of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Am I admitting my addiction to having a strong network o

Today I began an experiment. I planted two hemp plants in two different pots. One seedling will get tons of love. I put a sign on it that says, “Tell me that I am beautiful and that I will grow up to be a big and healthy hemp plant.” On the other, I said,

I believe that we can learn the best lessons from our pets.  In fact, I call our dog, Cousteau's philosophy, The Zen of Cousteau for a good reason, he's the mellowest dude on the planet.  Here are tips from Cousteau on how to stay cool in the summer.: Tak

A herd of horses Galloping free, manes are tossed Tails flying like flags Parch earth is kicked Graceful waltz in the desert Dust clouds in a swirl Round-up in motion Indians who are cowboys Unify the herds Nuzzling muzzles Equine welcome gathering Colt

Our topic this month, Strong Women Surviving Devastating Ordeals, is very important. Thankfully a good majority of us have not suffered a devastating ordeal, however, with the Internet on 24/7, we are exposed to such events on a daily basis and sometimes i

About a month or so ago a whole lot of things happened to me and I believe in my heart I am now experiencing the afterbirth of my rebirth. I fell down a flight of steps. Now, that may not seem a big deal to many of you, however, it shook me up pretty damn

  Her red floors shone with wax and polish, 3D artwork (that would look foolish in another's home) graced the mantle, food on the stove, ever-ready for guests, adobe house furnished art-deco style with the ornate lamps and hard-wood built-ins. Every piec

  I didn't know what it was, but I knew it was bad. Really bad.   The pretty girl was popular, blond and she always hung out with a group of boys. They seemed to admire her, cater to her every need and protect her. One night that all changed. Woken o

This morning the children at Sandy Hook Elementary School went back to class.  In the aftermath of horrific circumstances, where a lone gunman, killed 20 of their first grade class mates right before their very eyes along with the 6 adults, including their

During one of my many sessions with Women on the Verge (WOTV) member, Judy Kinney, I complained that I felt burned out and like I had no time. She nudged me with her gentle voice and said, “You know, that no opens up your yeses, right?” I stopped to thin

  My Dear Body,   You have kindly housed my soul since the day I was born, yet I rarely thank you for that. Instead, I poke at your triple-threat child-bearing hips, your softening neck, your focus-challenged eyes, your back that whines without it's dai

  I don't like zoos. I don't like circuses with animals either. I think that if we want to see animals, we should go to them, on their home court, so we can understand and appreciate them as they truly are.   I know my views can be seen as radical by so

  Simple things bring happiness. When I realize this, I have my best days. Those little things that stroke our souls and make us smile – imagine carving out a portion of every day to include them. A day without yoga or movement for me means I may be stif

  June is here and with it comes a new topic for us to dive into. This month's topic is called, “No Room to Hide”.  The plan is that we will come face-to-face with our vulnerabilities and courageously be okay with them. Personally, I can tell you, I am

I am asking that as a question, because I am going to tell you the way that I do, however, I am no expert, so I am also curious about how you do it, too.   During this month's Spa for the Soul, Judy Kinney asked us to fill out a questionnaire to discover o

  Why is it so easy to look at the people around me and so easily see their super power, while at the same time, I am challenged to see my own?   No matter how many times someone tells me that I am wonderful, I have this little voice of doubt rise up insid

  Some days it's more difficult to find that space in your heart for laughter than others, putting the guard down and letting your laughter ring can be a challenge.   I am aiming here to help you cheat your way to laughing. Let someone else's cleverness m

  Sisterhood. When one doesn't have a sister, yet yearns for one, it seems like such a vast word. But, in all honesty, it was the conceptual word behind the beginnings of Women on the Verge. It is the root. The core. The foundation. And ultimately,
