Why Visioning Doesn’t Work

I’ve been feeling a tug to start my own party. Several years ago I had a talk with my future-self and asked, looking back, who I was. What came through were the words, “Books on Film” to the 80s tune, Girls on Film. Yes, I’m dating myself…When I asked myself what that meant, the response was, “books, events, films.” I knew…

Are You Afraid of Money?

I know the idea of being afraid of money sounds ludicrous from a logical perspective, but I can’t help but wonder how many people have a fear of money, lurking just under the surface. That was me a few years ago. Money, although not really a bad word, actually triggered me a bit. The word itself made me just uncomfortable enough…

Is Easter a Pagan Holiday?

Easter for me is radically different than it is for many people I suspect. When I was a little girl in the very fundamentalist cult, we didn’t celebrate pagan holidays which included Christmas and Easter. Pagan was synonymous with evil in my parent’s eyes. After I left home I let go of any religious affiliation of any kind and eventually…

Is Your Religion Enabling Abuse?

Yesterday a student of mine asked, “What is the same between Forgiving someone for abuse, and being an Enabler of abuse: “Forgive is to: absolve, remit, cease to resent, excuse.” “Enable is to: allow, permit, excuse.” Both of them ‘Excuse’ the Behavior.” One of the issues I see with many belief systems is not understanding the difference between forgiveness and…

Resistance Is Futile

There is so much happening in the world right now that sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming. All of it depends on which side of the kaleidoscope each of us are choosing to look through. Looking through the wide lends, backward through to the eyepiece, there is only one limiting perspective. This limited perspective is often the viewpoint of those around the…

Loving The Afterbirth

Have you ever noticed that you get some of your best insights when you are working with water? Whether it’s the shower, bath, doing dishes or watering the yard, or even walking near the ocean, water seems to stimulate ideas. There is a reason that being in the flow of water stimulates being in the flow of ideas, but that’s…

Afraid of the Unknown?

This morning as I sat working on my intentions for 2017, along with catching up on a very long “To Do” list after spending close to three weeks playing with my husband and kids, I sat and pondered why it is that moving into the unknown feels so difficult for so many. Yes, this past year was very difficult for…

Celebrate Life!

This time of year I always find myself in reflection.  The season from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day is my favorite time of year.  I love everything about this time of year. I love the music, lights, food, laughter, cooking, baking, movies, shopping, celebrating and simply being. All of if lifts me up and causes me to ponder, not that I’m…

Talking Trump

In the midst of taking rugs and comforters to the cleaners, making a crock-pot of turkey soup from the Thanksgiving carcass and creating a flyer for my upcoming Spirit Lift events before running off to pickup my kids from school, I received a download about Donald Trump and who he really is. Yes, I am mostly vegetarian but occasionally join…

Discovering Gratitude

Gratitude is a fundamental part of my every day existence and how I move through life, but it wasn’t always that way.  As a child I knew very little about gratitude or how to express it. We were not taught the simple expression of “thank you” and the only mention of gratitude was in the meaningless words that were simply lip-service…
