Today I feel like a ghost who is destined to lug a hundred pounds of chains around for eternity. Okay. Not really, but I am that pale.   Yes. I have had a bit of a bug the last few days. Exhaustion. However, I’ll power through it. I have books to read,

  Unlearning—this is the major premise of every spiritual and religious path. And most of what we need to do to be happy and balanced and live an authentic life requires unlearning what society taught us. Society, in general, is crazy. You are not

This past week, I found myself on the road again.  My family and I took  an emergency road trip to my husband’s home town. Though, not a pleasant reason to travel, I suddenly remembered how much I like the actual process of traveling.When I was a kid, we t

One always wonders how it can be that if you ask you shall receive. Karen Monroy truly tells us in her wonderfully written book on Sustainable Prosperity. As Karen will tell you we are all programmed by what we have learned, heard and seen around us. All w

  Brian had slammed the front door with such force on his way out, it bounced back open. Deb, overcome by the tidal wave of his ignorance, fell against the perpetual pile of stuff in the dining room. “Where are you going? Brian! Don’t leave! Brian! Brian!

  Every morning, I’d been waking to the beauty of spring unfolding. Cherry blossoms, orange blossoms, and the songbird symphony. Smiles from my son, his natural joy sprinkled life as we moved through our day. Deb woke to a house shuttered against the ligh

Filthy dishes rose like a volcano out of the sink and overflowed to the counters, tempting me to judge Deb. My skin crawled at the mess. How was it possible to not care about the clutter and the crusted old food remnants now being feasted upon by flies? A

I had been giving considerable thought to the Madonna/Whore Archetype, the first splitting of the female self post Eve.  Ana (fabulous founder of Women on the Verge) asked me for an idea on a theme for January, naturally I suggested the modern

I want to thank all of my Women on the Verge Sisters for your love and support over the last year! I've had so many unexpected surprises and feel blessed by them all.     One Surprise was being told my "nick name" Pollyanna wasn't helping me. I was t

    My cherry trees are at bud stage 1. In the middle of winter, defiantly challenging the cold, new buds are forming.  The buds are tightly nestled into one another. Protecting each other, bracing against and surviving the cold. Th

Do you ever think: "life is hard-that's just how it is?" Man postulates about nature, “it’s eat or be eaten.” It’s representative of a traditional belief that life is a struggle. Do you remember the bumper sticker: “Lif

When ever I do a workshop on boundaries and I speak of the blessing “no and yes” I point out  Jesus said, “let your no be no and your yes be yes.” The teaching is NOT yes is better than no, or if you say no you are a bi

At a recent event there were drama queens at the next table. They were loud, flirting with the inappropriate– but mostly they were vampires. I could hear the sucking sound of the energy of others as it left their bodies and was fed upon by th

I’ve been working on a big ass pile of anger. It's messy and worse, the anger isn't even 'my' anger. It was a toxic poop fest tossed at me from left field.  I've been busy containing the anger, quieting it down and not adding any of my o

  To be honest, several monsters have been jumping up and down on the trampoline of my mind lately. One is the wanting monster. You know how that monster goes: it comes up with a story about how things would be ‘better’ if&hell

Most of us are unaware of the depth of our programmed thinking. A young child (this includes you when you were young) has a mind like a sponge. It takes in information via “contrast” and “similar” and begins to make a “m

I’ve recently encountered two different drive-by bashings. You know, you’re cruising along the highway of life, pretty much minding your own business, wishing others all the best and wham! Someone comes unglued-all over you. If you ar

I have never met a ‘uncreative’ person-only a person who has not yet found a way to express their creativity. I'm speaking of Creativity that comes from Spirit. Many times Creativity is expressed by an artist or writer-it is in each one

At the end of the hard paved freeway of the intellect begins the soft sandy road of the heart. Intellect loves speed. Addiction to information, events-constantly buzzing -the tornado of the mind is never at rest. The heart loves essence; being-ne

Just for a moment, go back in your mind ten years.  It’s summer of 2000. What was life like? What were you doing? What was important to you at the time? What was your dream? Breathe yourself back into this moment.     &nbsp
