Turning the Page

 

 

This is the final Friday of 2013. The hustle and bustle is reaching a peak, having moved through Thanksgiving with gratitude and food, Hanukkah with glowing lights and 8 sweet nights, Christmas with the birth of a guiding Soul here on Earth, entering into Kwanzaa with culture, community and unity and finally New Year’s Eve and a chance to believe that life can be even more magical.

Like many people, I become nostalgic, gazing over my shoulder at the highs and lows of the year about to close. 2013 brought me the birth of my radio show called It’s All About Relationships and with it, the delight of interviewing movers and shakers in transformational fields, many more writing venues with which to share the riches with which The Muse has graced me, standing before folks in faith congregations and wellness communities….living my professional dream. I have welcomed into my life, wondrous souls who have become part of my treasure collection. Some I have encountered face to face, heart to heart and hug to hug and some via the marvels of modern technology and the phenom of Facebook, but no less dear to me. I have embarked on inner journeys the likes of which I had trembled in fear to contemplate, facing down my demons and inner critic that snarled, roared and howled from behind boulders.

When all is said and done, they weren’t as fierce as they first appeared. They never are. It is my vivid imagination that deludes me into thinking they will obliterate me. It is when I can see them for what they are…..those unloved and orphaned aspects of myself clamoring for attention, then they have no power over me. Sometimes hard to embrace someone who is attempting to bite off body parts in the process.

I am grateful to be on the flip side of several health issues that had toppled me for a bit and were wake up calls for improved self care. Focusing on calling into my life all I dream and desire for 2014. Tonight, I will be getting together with a friend and creating a Vision Board that will allow me to turn the page into a new day, new year, new wondrous life!

Pass It Onword
Back in November, as I was meandering the aisles at the Mind Body Spirit Expo in King of Prussia, PA, I came to a booth at which two women were beaming beatifically. In front of them was a table of simple wares. Stones engraved with a word-  gratitude, strength, inspire, forgive, and kindness, we

How We Grieve
  "When my Guru died in 1973, I assumed that because of the important part he played in my life, and the love I felt for him, I would be inundated with grief. Surprisingly, I was not. In time, I came to realize why. He and I were so well established in Soul love that, in the years since he l

Recovering Human Doing
Lounging in bed, surrounded by lots of pillows and snuggled under quilts as I am typing these words. It is a drowsy, dozy Sunday morning. The radio is playing easing into my day tunes.  My standard weekend fare begins with Sleepy Hollow on WXPN which is a Philly based member supported Public Radio

Profoundly Honest
"We must learn to be profoundly honest."-Panache Desai Wise words from one of the most engaging speakers I have had the pleasure of hearing. Back in 2011, I attended the Celebrate Your Life Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. I had not, at that point, known of the British born teacher who exudes a s
