Last night I had the blessing of participating in an intimate meditation group.  Four of us met in the home of my friend, Gary, in order to experience sitting in silence together. Gary enjoys keeping his front door wide open […]

Creating Shift

This morning I was feeling a bit half-mast.  I had had a crick in my neck for about 16 consecutive hours, and though it had improved from acute pain to a dull ache, I noticed it was still coloring my […]

The Power of Affirming Words

Twice in the last week, I rediscovered the miracle of choosing different words.   (Note:  I so want to share with you the good news of how we can manifest little miracles in our lives.  And in order to do […]

All is Well

“There is nothing to worry about.”   This was one of the angel cards I drew last night.  And how grateful I was to see it. Angel cards, for those unfamiliar with the concept, are decks of cards with messages […]

This desert-dweller was blessed to have recently had two days at the shore, reveling in the sights, sounds, and smells of the sea.  I cannot imagine what it is like for those who have never experienced the ocean.  There is […]
