Sunday inspiration: Answering the question “Who am I”

Sunday inspiration: Father’s day musings

posted by Lynn Hayes

Father’s Day (like Mother’s Day) can be very difficult for those of us who have lost a father through death or estrangement. It’s interesting that the astrological Sun represents the father, and it also represents the Self.  While the mother […]

National Face your Fears Day

Practice makes permanent

posted by Lynn Hayes

I heard this quote over the weekend at a hammered dulcimer workshop: “Practice doesn’t necessarily make perfect, but it does make permanent.”  Evidently Warren Buffett obtained this piece of wisdom from a golf pro, the point of which is that […]

No radio show today – here’s some inspiration instead

posted by Lynn Hayes

Reform: “to convert into another and better form”

posted by Lynn Hayes

Kathryn Cassidy tweeted yesterday: “The word ‘Reform’ is everywhere. It strongly correlates to the current Saturn/Uranus opposition as do the words Rebellion and Revolution.” She’s right about calls for reform being heard everywhere.  In the US we’ve had healthcare reform, but […]

Inspiration for times of change

Happiness is contagious! Spread it around

posted by Lynn Hayes

Sunday Inspiration: Thoughts on Transformation

posted by Lynn Hayes

” In a world of beginnings, middles, and endings, all beginnings force an ending. Beginnings push through middles and roll on to endings. And what do endings do? Does the energy of the event disappear? No, it doesn’t. It goes […]

A life of abundance in a contracting world

posted by Lynn Hayes

art by Melanie Weidner As many of you know, one of the paradigms by which I live is that we are the co-creators of our reality.  A healthy capitalist economic system is based on this premise:  When consumers feel prosperous, […]

The Template

Sunday Inspiration: The Age of Purification.

posted by Lynn Hayes
