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

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

After a tumultuous 2011, I decided I could not save the world. I spent most of this past year concentrating on my immediate family, clients, neighbors and close friends. I have been busy ‘working’ on myself. One of my 2012 goals was to move on from anyone

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

  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

  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

  Slashing became a part of my life at 21. Shocking behavior, some might think, but not so to me. I'd been two decades in a severely-dysfunctional family and I could only guess at what healthy was. Cutting and hurting myself gave me a strange sense of elat

I am reprinting several articles I wrote in the late 80s and early 90s. All of these are true stories. In fact, the things that happened to me, chose my life's mission--to fight against all kinds of violence against women, in particular, rape, incest and t

All names are changed to protect the guilty.  This was a second gang rape.   Dear Tom,   I’m sure you remember me. We both lived in the same town at one time and you and I were in the same grade school. You know my family. You remember me.   But, of
