The Power of Affirmations

Reprogramming our minds and our thoughts to focus on the way we want our life to be, rather than on perceived limitations, is paramount to co-creating a beautiful reality. Choosing to direct our thoughts on a desired outcome, situation or condition, and focusing on them as though they are already in existence has been scientifically…

The Journey of Personal Evolution

Over recent years, as I have taken my nose off of the grindstone to witness the beauty of the world around me, the realization that 'there must be more to life' became my foothold. Working at a mainstream job 60, 70 or even 80 hours a week barely gave me the time to breathe, much…

Your Purpose is to Shine

The dawn of a new month is upon us. Bathe yourself in the light and energy of August, of the Universe, and of your very own soul. Whatever it is that makes you shine, that makes your soul light up, is your purpose, your path. Choose to follow your path and let nothing get in…

Pooh Wisdom and Difficult Days

"Today was a Difficult Day," said Pooh.There was a pause."Do you want to talk about it?" asked Piglet."No," said Pooh after a bit. "No, I don't think I do.""That's okay," said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.""What are you doing?" asked Pooh."Nothing, really," said Piglet. "Only, I know what Difficult Days are…

How Yoga Can Change Your Life

When people think of yoga, they often think it's for those "hippy dippy" types who walk around in caftans, chanting "Om" all of the time.

The Legend of the Hummingbird

Such tiny creatures, yet so magical. Hummingbirds (or 'hummers' as I like to call them) are spiritually thought to represent love, joy and playfulness. If you are fortunate enough to live where hummingbirds thrive, let their presence remind you of the love, joy and playfulness in your own life. "Legends say that hummingbirds float free…

Stop what you are doing right now and take in the beauty of what surrounds you... In every moment of every day, there is magic happening around us. Our job (should we choose to accept it) is to recognize those little miracle nuggets, and know beyond the shadow of any doubt that every little detail…

Dum Spiro Spero

"While I breathe, I hope." This year has brought enormous challenge and change. From the COVID-19 pandemic and the uprooting of our relative normalcy, to nationwide unrest and grief over yet another killing of a black man at the hand of law enforcement, 2020 will be a year to REALLY remember. It is easy to…

These times…

I don’t know what to say.  How can I? I am a white woman who grew up in the suburbs, received a college education and who now lives in a quiet residential neighborhood.  I have never been the target of hate just because of the color of my skin.  I have never had to tell…

Choose Joy

This year I have been really diving deep into discovering who I am, and what  my purpose, or dharma, is here on this Earth.   While I do not profess to have even come close to ascertaining the answers to those questions, one thing that I do know is that it is essential to find your…
