Stand for Love and Kindness for ALL Beings

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...

The #1 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 and mentioned...

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...

The Miracle of Sleep

 

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...

How to Self-heal

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...

Lentil Shepherd’s Pie

This hearty recipe offers several chances to decide just how “from scratch” you want your baking to be. The vegetable broth can be either homemade or store-bought, as can the non-dairy milk. Even if you decide to make everything from scratch, the preparatory steps including cooking the potatoes, cooking the lentils, and making the broth, can be done well in advance.

Once those steps are done, the rest of the recipe is fairly simple and comes together quickly.

Are you tired of being a people pleaser?

This week, there’s been a theme with my clients. They’re putting into practice some of the tools I suggest and their lives are changing. For the better.


Can you resonate with this? One of my clients—let’s call her Jackie—has always been a people pleaser. She’s at the top of everyone’s list when they need something done because she’s always said yes. But she started feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and used up by life. By the time she was...

How to Save Time and Still Eat Healthy

At the base of everything we do, our goal is to be happy. It may not always look that way on the surface, but if you really drill down, you'll see that it's true.

Here’s a little experiment I’ve done with my clients and in my classes. First, I ask someone to tell me a small goal they have and then follow with a series of questions. Here’s an example:

Goal: I want to volunteer at an animal shelter.
Question: Why?
A: I want to help animals.
Q: What does it do for you to be...

Cheesy Vegan Ziti

Just before the explosion of the Grunge Scene in Seattle, I left for New York with my then-boyfriend's rock band.

On a Greyhound Bus, we rode to the place where they would become rock stars. I went not as "the girlfriend," but to learn to be a band manager. After days on that bus, I discovered that it was possible for my derrière to be equally sore and numb.

We landed in Harlem in 1989 where I shared a studio apartment with five long-haired guys. Yes,...
