In Winter's darkness, we invite and celebrate the return of Spring’s light.
Before electricity, this was a time of moving inward, calm, rest, and ultimately renewal. Yet, in modern culture, it’s often the busiest part of the year.
If the holiday bustle isn’t chaotic enough, it’s easy to get caught up in the political negativity du jour.
Noticing how easy it is to find what’s “wrong” in the world (whether it’s my small personal world,...
I invite you to take a breath. Through your nose: Deeeeep Inhaaaaale. Out your mouth: Deeeeep Exhaaaaale. Now how about two more of those?
Okay, now that your nervous system has had a moment to recalibrate, let’s talk about the holidays. If that made your breathing quicken again, I invite you to go back and take a few more deep breaths before continuing to read.
Have you ever thought about how much you’re running in obligation mode in the month of December?
No matter what you...
With all the running around you do for everyone in your life, do you think about how you feed yourself? When I coach my clients, we talk about eight aspects of life that when addressed allow us to generate energy, create time, have fun, feel great, and increase joy. Yes, please!
One of these eight areas is consumption, which includes not only what we eat and drink, but also what we read, listen to, and watch. Today, we’ll focus on food. So often, we think that eating well involves...
Sweet Friend, Today, I sit in gratitude for you.
Thank you for sharing yourself and your journey with me.
You bring me hope for humanity through your celebrations of triumph, curiosity about handling a particular situation, openness to living life more consciously, and desire to choose more love and kindness for all Beings, including yourself.
It's been a bit of a rough week for me with oral surgery last Friday and helping our sweet elderly cat, Bella. cross...
Our family practices gratitude throughout the year. Just as many of us use New Year's Day to revisit and reinvigorate our life goals, Thanksgiving can be a good time to refresh our commitment to being grateful in our lives.
The intention of Thanksgiving is to give thanks, yet for those of us who care about animals, Thanksgiving can be a sad day. Did you know that 45 million beautiful animals lives are taken just for this one day?
To honor their lives, we celebrate with a...
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 and mentioned...
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...
Have you heard of this miracle cure called “sleep?” It’s not new, but it’s often overlooked.
For the first 36 years of my life, I didn’t think much of it. It just happened. I guess that means I was pretty good at it. Oh, how little we appreciate the ever-present treasures that exist automatically.
Once my daughter was born, sleep and I began to have complications in our relationship and our nightly trysts were painfully thwarted by a waking baby. Bleary-eyed and...
Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. Walking or driving through our little town of Nevada City, California, I am forever gasping at the beauty of nature's colorful display. I even have specific "favorite" trees I watch throughout this time of year.
If we listen, we can hear Fall's leaf colors whispering to slow down and begin to collect ourselves for the invitation to rest in Winter.
Slip into your own skin. Ask your body, “Love, what do you need?” An answer will...
