How Loved You Are

  Have you ever stopped to consider that you are loved….really and truly, without a doubt, totally adored by a Universe that just wants to send you mushy, gushy Valentines every day of your life? Yeh, I know that there […]

Renaissance Man Derek O’Neill

  With a lilting Irish accent that melts me, Derek O’Neill is a wise man with the heart of a playful child. I became familiar with his work through friends who have studied with him and attended one of his […]

Sensitivity

Has anyone ever said these 3 words to you that had you feeling dimissed, discounted, put down or misunderstood:  “You’re too sensitive.”? In a workshop I am teaching this week,  at Grail Springs,  the subject  came up when we were speaking […]

A Different Perspective

  I have interesting encounters in the most unexpected places. The one I am about to describe took place in Ithaca, New York on Sunday. My friend Ondreah Johnson and I were visting with my friends Jody Kessler and Doug Shire […]

Do It Myself

(Iconic eatery in Ithaca, NY-Moosewood Cafe) Do you remember being a little kid, wanting to tie your shoes, button your shirt, brush your teeth or comb your hair on your own, as if that proved your independence and showed your […]

Blessed Bigtime

The morning after Thanksgiving, fingers tapping out a flowing rhythm on the keyboard, I am basking in the glow of a clean house that continues to reverberate with the laughter and love that filled it yesterday. Family of choice crossed […]

Glorious Gratitudinosity

  Sitting here in a quiet house, save the sound of the dryer tossing around damp clothes and towels.  Two candles are brightly burning on the pass-through between the kitchen and the dining room that tomorrow will be the portal through […]

One Wild And Precious Life

    The Summer Day Mary Oliver Who made the world? Who made the swan, and the black bear? Who made the grasshopper? This grasshopper, I mean- the one who has flung herself out of the grass, the one who […]

The Climb

  I have long been both a ‘go-getter’ and ‘go-giver'; one who is seemingly always on the move and also in service to others, sometimes to my own detriment. I have used my God-given gifts to support myself and my […]

Resurrection Day

To say that I am head over heels in love with this newest release from former Philly local (now in upstate NY) artists, Kim and Reggie Harris, is an understatement.  I was introduced to their music in the 1980’s when […]

Balance Your Life Balance The Scale

I met Jennifer Tuma -Young a few years back when she and I spoke at an event for an organization called Enchanted Makeovers which restores and transforms shelters, making them a welcoming and vibrant place to be. Her newly released book does […]

Serenity Prayer

I can’t begin to convey how many times a day these words run through my sometimes way over-active mind, like oars in a rapidly running river, pushing away the water and propelling me forward as gracefully as possible. In some instances, the tide threatens […]

Slumber Party

  As I am writing this entry, I am curled up in a chair  in a room at The Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill, NJ. My roomates, Ruth Anne Wood and Kaya John and I have been chatting and giggling for hours about all […]

World Kindness Week

  “This is my simple religion.  There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” -His Holiness the Dalai Lama   Did you know that […]

Breakthrough Specialist Lisa Nichols

For those who have seen the now iconic film The Secret, you are likely to remember a powerfully passionate woman who spoke her truth about her  self image and how it evolved over time. I have followed the career of […]

God’s Counting On Me, God’s Counting On You

      Coming upon this aptly titled song this morning (although I have heard it before), was Divinely timed. Singer-songwriter Julie Gold (writer of the anthemic From A Distance) had it on her Facebook page and it put  a smile on my face, because of […]

Blessed Are The Weird

My friend and fellow wordsmith Jacob Nordby (author of The Divine Arsonist) has created a sensation with these simple phrases that have been showing up all over the internet.  There is a method to his madness as he and sister […]

Solution Finder

  “We Can’t Solve Problems By Using The Same Kind Of Thinking We Used When We  Created Them” Albert Einstein Simple logic, huh? Consider how much time is spent doing just that. As a therapist who is trained to help […]

Ask With Love

Creativity is my life blood, although the  expression is generally in the form of words on a page, drumming, singing and movement to music. I usually dress colorfully and today, I donned a lavender hoodie that reads  Create Your Bliss that I acquired on Saturday  while […]

Fortune Cookie

.   Whenever I wanted to experience the reflection of abundance from the Universe, I would have lunch at a Chinese restaurant around the corner from where I worked in Ambler, PA. It’s called Golden Great Wall and it differs […]

Madly In Love With Me

Even as I wrote the title for this Bliss Blog entry, I could feel the little twitches of  “What will people think if I declare that statement?”  That’s what tells me that Christine Arylo wrote this book for me and […]
