We Need to Talk About Privilege, Racism, and "All Lives Matter"

It's taken way too long for me to write more about this here. I've done it on social media, but not enough on my own website. Why? I could name a lot of reasons, including that I was raised in and live in a culture steeped in systemic racism. Also...

I was worried that I'd get it wrong. That I couldn't say everything in one little post, so maybe I shouldn't say anything. Worried that I wouldn't do it perfectly.

But, I'm tired of being afraid of speaking up. I want to use my privilege of...

Why I Shaved My Hair

On April 30, we did a thing, Olivia (our 13-year-old) and me. I've wanted to do this for a few years now. It's a reclaiming of myself, my body, my life. Releasing the past, what no longer serves me, and maybe never did.

Living in a culture that has tried to define and tell me who I should be got in the way of my ability to see what I believe and who I truly am. I am now living more in My Truth. It's a process, for sure, and I expect it will be a lifelong journey.

And so, Olivia shaved my...

The Power of Laughter

Have you heard the one about the average 4-year-old who laughs 300 times per day and the average 40-year-old who laughs only four times a day? Whoa!

While that turns out to be an urban legend, I have no doubt that most children do laugh a whole lot more than most adults do. And that we could all use more laughter in our lives.

For the past couple of years, my husband and I have intentionally sought out opportunities to laugh. Searching for comedies over dramas. Life itself is dramatic...

The Most Common Place Most People Hear Their Intuition

This week, we’re continuing with part two of my series on How to Magnify Your Intuition.

Why bother with this intuition stuff anyway?

Imagine making decisions effortlessly, living with less stress, and feeling confident that you’re on track with life. Just like moving your body, the more you exercise your intuition, the stronger it will become and the easier, more relaxed, and enjoyable your life will be.

Last week, I shared the four “clair” senses.

Today,...

How often do you follow your hunches?

Do you ever struggle to know which path to take or how to respond to a situation? The easiest way to find the answer is to ask your intuition. If you think you’re not intuitive or aren’t quite sure how to listen to that inner voice, read on.

Intuition is an automatic tool just waiting to be used. And everyone can connect to it. The key is to practice so you can recognize that inner knowing when it shows up.

In this two-part series, we’ll explore the sixth sense and what you...

How to Go Vegan Guide

Lately, many people have been asking me for help and resources to learn how to go vegan. Since this has been a passion of mine since 1997, I’m overjoyed at the request.

I’m all about efficiency, and I know that if ten people are asking, at least five times more folks have the same question. If you're one of them, here are my hints to help you on your way. And if you're already there, please share!

IS IT HARD TO GO VEGAN?
One of my friends recently wrote to me feeling...

Is soy bad for you?

What about soy? Aren't you concerned about phytoestrogens in soy?
These are two of the many questions I often hear from people when they learn that I'm vegan. So allow me to put the soy fear to rest. The common fear is that soy has a negative effect on hormones.

Is soy a requirement for the vegan diet?
It's a myth that when we adopt a vegan lifestyle, we get a congratulatory kitchen stocked with soy products. There is no vegan membership requirement of a heavy dependence upon soy. Believe it or...

Marianne Williamson’s Bid for the 2020 Presidency

Since 2016,I’ve become much more political. Why? Because I now understand that political issues affect people personally and vice versa. 

It’s strained some of my relationships and I’ve heard that some leaders have lost “fans” by talking about politics. Even one of my mentors, Brené Brown, has been told to keep her political opinions to herself.

I know I’m taking a risk. Thank goodness I’ve recovered enough from people pleasing to be able...

How I Survived My Fear of Scuba Diving

Even though I’ve been challenging a fear of heights, the claustrophobia wasn’t one I was ready to address yet. Or so I thought.
 
During our family’s two-month adventure to SE Asia this winter, I faced this thing that has terrified me for as long as I can remember.
 
As close to a panic attack as I’ve ever been, I was ready to turn back. Not do it and leave that experience unlived. But I worked through it with the help of an amazing,...
