Responsibility

  I had a conversation with one of my amazing healer-friends the other day. As always, we invite the presence of angels and guides, and they share their wisdom with us. And today, I am sharing that wisdom with you: Burdens of Responsibility come from old ways or patterns of thinking. There is no joy […]

From Mountains to Molehills

I am skilled at “making mountains out of molehills.” It is the reverse with which I have needed practice. I know many of you who read this are gifted with extra emotional sensitivity. (I also know it doesn’t always feel like a gift.) So I thought I would share (again) one of my favorite tools for […]

Moving – Spiritual Cookies

Wow, I am surprised to see that it’s been almost 2 years since I shared any spiritual cookies with you in this blog. Basically, I am sharing delicious parts of my past week (or so) and inviting you to do the same. For tasty history on this, especially if you have are a fan of […]

I Remember

I have been hurt so many times. Maybe it is the same for you. Here are words from Pema Chodron in The Places that Scare You: “we can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder […]

We Are Always Manifesting

As I explored the concept of manifesting, I wondered if the dictionary has caught up to the common use of this term in my circles. The definition on www.dictionary.com that most closely matches my idea of manifestation is “to make clear or evident to the eye or the understanding; show plainly: He manifested his approval […]

Radical Self-Love

“Women! Love your bodies. Love every part. Every curve, every fold, every line, every so-called blemish is a part of what makes you uniquely you and uniquely beautiful. Women glow, shine, radiate beauty whatever our shape or size. Love it all!” This quote is printed here with permission of artist Christina You.  Her words stopped […]

What is High-Coo?

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I’ve been using haiku as a part of my journey of healing from breast cancer (and its treatment!) I thought I’d give you a brief tutorial on writing haiku today. Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry that consists of 3 lines, first line of 5 syllables, […]

A Bigger Picture

Thank you to all who commented on last week’s post. I would have liked to reply to all of your rich and generous comments. But I am letting go of some of my tasks, even those I like, as I rebuild and manage my energy. One woman suggested I might want to be more discerning next […]

Clearly, Successful!

I went to see a healer recently, and I am still recovering. She had comments about how I could improve on everything. With catch-22’s. For example, if I said I was weeding and biking rather than going to the gym the past few weeks, she said the gym would be better. If I said I […]
