Multiple Streams

I am a multi-faceted multi-tasker, like many who are reading this article. I call myself a professional hyphenate:  Writer-speaker-social worker- minister-radio host-social worker-therapist-addictions counselor- BLISS coach-editor-author-reiki master-PR Goddess (and the list is growing). I used to say that I would ‘patchwork together’ my sources of income so I could stay afloat. When I think about a patchwork quilt, what comes to mind is a lovely blanket with which I can wrap myself, comprised of a multitude of bits and pieces lovingly stitched together. The flip side of it though is the idea that they are also ‘scraps’ of material. That part runs counter to what I want to believe is so about my work.

Instead, I have come to think of the concept of ‘multiple streams of income’ that flow gracefully into my life. What if you could visualize that for yourself? In my mind, I see a trickling body of water, moving through a verdant landscape with wildflowers waving on a brilliantly grassy shore, fed by the richness of the liquid love. As I sit on the earth, I dip my feet in the water and splash about. I scoop up handfuls of it and toss it in the air and lift my face toward the falling drops; laughing as it drenches me. Could I also envision money that way?  I do that often and welcome you to do it too.

Rev. Ike who was a charismatic and iconic preacher and died a few years ago would say that

“You can come to the Ocean with a teaspoon, a bucket, or a tractor trailer! The Ocean doesn’t care! The Ocean just wants to outflow!”  Are you open to being in the flow?

On Wings
  Four years ago, at this moment, an event was in the process of taking place that would change my life as I knew it. My mother was in the 'birth canal' on her way to her new life. A few months earlier while she was on hospice, we would have the most extraordinary conversations about what t

Allowing Others To Effect Their Own Destinies
Most Sundays find me at Circle of Miracles, which is an interfaith spiritual community created 19 years ago by Rev. Hannelore Goodwin. It is where I, and many who attend the ecumenical services, find family of choice, inspiration, community and healing. The room is a warm and welcoming place where D

The Only Life You Can Save
One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are. Today, while visiting my former place of employment, one of my co-workers pulled out an anthology consisting of the works of

Abby's Light
  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was

Light Filled Holiday
This morning, I saw a meme on a friend's Facebook page that expressed: LIKE if you plan to be politically incorrect by saying "Merry Christmas" this holiday season. My response to her was: "If I know what people celebrate, I will greet them with their preferred sentiment. I have friends of many diff
