Quietness

"The quieter you become, the more you can hear." I read that quote this morning and it was just what I needed. It is in the quiet moments that we shut out our own thoughts and truly listen to what Spirit has to say to us. My mind has been so busy lately with preparations for publishing the new book and I have found myself getting frustrated after sitting for prolonged periods of time trying to make sure each I is dotted and each T crossed, so to speak. Not only is my physical body tired but my brain is tired and just wants time now to process, to be still and listen. We all need that in our lives. The busyness sometimes gets overwhelming, especially this time of year when there is so m

Taking Back the Reins

Mirriam-Webster defines a rein as "an influence that slows, limits or holds back." The term is normally thought of in equestrian terms with horses being controlled by a line or strap, called a rein. However, when you put it in terms of our human lives, you can see that we all have reins as well. So, who's pulling your reins and is it time to take them back? From the moment we are born we are faced with these controlling forces. The newborn baby is swaddled so tightly in a blanket that it cannot move around. This is for the baby's own protection, for warmth and security. This "swaddling" continues as the child grows in many forms, all controlling and "for protection." At some point in

Make-a-Difference Day

Let's have a make-a-difference day. Today, I pray for ___________. Today, I will consciously make an effort to smile at ____________. Today, I will call _____________ just to say hello and see how he/she is doing. Today, I will _______________________. When we set out to consciously do something positive and uplifting, something inside of us shifts. I have a new favorite chant that is uplifting just by the sound of it but when I listen to it and chant along with it for even five minutes, I find my thoughts are more positive, I can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel and good things start happening in my life! This is with conscious intent. The chant found me. I didn't go

Your Inside Color

When you look inside, what do you see? Only you know. We can take pictures of the outside – what we look like, what our friends, family and environment looks like. Nature, sunset, sunrise, clouds, animals all can be captured on film. How do we take a picture of the soul? It is well-known that our soul is not only contained within our physical body but also is outside of us. This is called an aura. Anyone can see your aura if they tune in to it. It’s not a secret, not hidden away. But that part of us that is deep inside, the very heart of us – how do we picture that for others to see? If you had to give it a color, what color would it be and why? Do you nurture it and watch it grow

Who's On Your Boat?

Sometimes in life when you are facing tough times, when you are not sure which way to turn at a crossroad or when you just need to feel that someone else understands, you are not looking for anyone to "save" you but just looking for acknowledgement that you matter. We are all so busy fighting our own demons and dragons, thinking the world has ended and we are the only ones aware of it, trying to make sense of things that one cannot make sense of that we forget about those around us who are in the same boat as us. We only see the muddy water with no reflection of the sunshine. We cannot hear the chiming of the church bells because we have enclosed ourselves in a cave of worry and fear. Hav
