Here Comes The Sun

Today marks the Spring Equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere. It heralds a time of light and warmth, of shedding the heavy layers that felt protective of my heart and body. Like many of us in the colder climes, I am feeling a sense of relief that the snow and ice have melted away as well. My electric bill has been through the roof  this winter and I am grateful that I can keep the thermostat down and soon open the windows.

I have, as have many in my life, taken notice of the desire to hibernate. There are some mornings that this go-getter wants to dive under the covers and, like the groundhog, stay there until the temps get above 50 degrees and I need not wear a wool coat and boots. I have felt a sense of emotional overwhelm, as if taking on so much of the frozen energy of those I encounter. As an empath, I need to be mindful of that. In my daily work as a therapist, I surround myself and my clients with love and light, keep my reiki energy switched on. As a friend and mother, sister and aunt, I create space for my loved ones to share what is on their minds and at times am overwhelmed with the amount of pain they feel. In the past few weeks, two brilliantly shining women in my circles have made their transition. Prior to that, the father of a dear friend took his leave. The hearts of those around me are weeping and I don’t always have the means to comfort their grief.

It is then that I turn to the Source of all healing and like the sunflower, lift my face to the solar comforter.

Sara's Smiles- Lift The Cloud, Inspire The Joy
  The Philadelphia Flower Show is an annual event that heralds the coming of Spring. This Winter weary woman who hadn't attended in decades, was eager to immerse in beauty. Little did I know that it would go far beyond the blossoms and butterflies that lent their color and wonder. I was offe

We Never Know Who We Will Touch With Our Words
It is no secret that I am addicted to words. As a career writer, I live and breathe their essence. They delight me to no end. They are the beat of my heart and the blood that flows through my veins. They are a source of emotional, spiritual and physical support. They feed my right livelihood work th

Inhaling and Exhaling
Breathing is necessary in order to sustain our corporeal existence. Inhaling and exhaling, over and over. The average human takes 12 breaths per minute which comes out to 17,280 each day. This doesn't factor in times of exercise. It is something that most people do without even thinking about it, un

Love Is All I Am
Lately, the Muse has been waking me up long around 4 a.m. Not sure why, but when that happens, I know it is important to take dictation. And so I do. A name came through first- Tyler Goldsmith. He is the lead singer for one of my favorite folk/rock groups called Dawes. Then the words "Love is all I
