Twilight Barbie, Angel Valley sweat lodge – some thoughts

Come to the edge, he said.
They came.
He pushed them,
And they flew …..

My mind is swimming with thoughts today; instead of a gentle trickle, it feels more like a flood-driven raging river, and I have learned over the years that’s a good thing.

Human beings are such an interesting species. I have never seen an Angel Barbie, something that would be comforting and perhaps help children deepen their spiritual connection. Maybe its just me, but a vampire Barbie seems rather odd.

The Angel Valley Sweet lodge has been in the news a lot since the tragic death of three participants. Today I read an article about sweat lodges that really gave me a lot to think about.

I frequently lead retreats and in June when I was in Sedona, we had a sweat lodge. Before we entered the sweat lodge, I told people that if they weren’t sure or if they didn’t feel well, there was no error in leaving. The article by James Bergstrom talked a great deal about the spiritual aspect of sweat lodges.

When I first read about the deaths in the Angel Valley Sweat lodge, my first thought was, “There but for the grace of God.” When I work with people, it is always my intent to help them deepen their connection to their divinity. I have had two people hurt at my retreats in the past twenty years, and I am grateful they have been relatively minor injuries.

No matter what the question, love is always the answer. So I guess if you really love vampires, a Twilight Barbie is something you would really enjoy.  Who am I to judge?

LIfe is as it is. I am sure there were lots of angels at that sweat lodge, and my hunch is angels have no problem with vampire Barbies. I send my thoughts and prayers to everyone. My mind is still whirling, and I know that is the sign I am about to have a wonderful ah ha that I will no doubt share with you when it occurs.

With love and aloha,

Angels are everywhere just open your mind and your heart to the signs.

Refelctions on the Vietnam War
I was surprised when I was reminded that it was the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. I was in high school when the war started and much of my early life was lived against the back drop of vivid images of the war every night on the evening news. When I was in college the massacre at Kent State

Why angels?
People often want to talk to angels, connect with them or be guided by them. Why? I often wonder why angels? My theory is that people are seeking the love. Angels are never judgmental and they radiate love. As human beings we often forget that we live surrounded by love and that at a core leve

How to talk to the angels
I get asked this question all the time. It really is very easy but our minds can make it so much harder. We can doubt what we are hearing or sensing or feeling. You are always surrounded by angels. The moment you ask them for help they are there. The problem is we often don't let the help in.
