Empath’s Soul Mission

Posted by on Dec 12, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I pick up strays. Sometimes it’s pets or stray children. These days I “adopt” military people and send them care packages. My impulse to do this is even stronger at the Holidays, because the loneliness is so much harder to bear at this time of year.   This is the gift and the burden of being an Empath. It’s so hard to FEEL people being sad and lonely at the Holidays. We all need to feel loved, and most of us are disconnected and alone. We have lost our way.   Part of the soul mission of an Empath is spread...

Change in the Tides

Posted by on Dec 12, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

My life has taken an interesting shift. I am definitely having a drink from The Fire Hose Of Change, as everything seems to be happening at once. Change and movement is upon me. And it’s all good, it’s just all happening at the same time!   My plans all converged so that I have a big house project happening and my house is in an uproar, plus a huge and nit picky writing deadline, plus the Holidays and now a move to a new office all within before Jan 1. (And of course my regular work/life routine…)   You should see my home office-...

Happy Thanksgiving

Posted by on Nov 27, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Happy Thanksgiving. I love that there is holiday that is about gratitude. It’s one of the best things that we can do. We all stop for a day, gather with loved ones and acknowledge about what we feel grateful for.   It’s beautiful.   Except when it’s hard, which it often is.   I can always find something to feel grateful for. I am sick this Thanksgiving Day, with a case of pneumonia. It’s what happens to me when I push too hard, over work and burn out. So today I am grateful for a few days off to rest and recover. And I am...

Change

Posted by on Nov 16, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

My 23 year old son was on a rant the other day about the state of the world. I can’t blame him for being upset about it. He holds a “you guys messed it up and left us with the bill…” feeling, for which I can’t blame him. He struggles to figure out what he personally can do about the all the problems that we face right now and it seems overwhelming. I have a different experience, which is to believe that things are improving with the changes that are on us. Things get messier as they get better. We are bringing a lot of yuckiness out of the...

Divine Will

Posted by on Oct 12, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

  Lately I have been struggling a bit with the concept of Divine Will versus my own will. I believe in the power of God’s will but there is a stubborn and hard ego part of me that doesn’t want to give up my personal will.   It’s the part of me that wants what I want. And I want it NOW, just the way I imagined it. It feels like a child stomping it’s foot with a bad case of the “wanties.” (I want it, I want, I want it! Waaah!)   Our ego self gets so attached to having things appear in a certain package and we are crushed when...

Choosing The Light

Posted by on Oct 12, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

  Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like the daily disasters are getting progressively worse. All we have to do is turn on the news and see the trauma du jour. And they are all bad. Terrible. Each day worse than the day before.   It’s hard on everyone, and especially for us sensitive types that are very tuned into the pain and suffering of the world. To me, it feels like getting punched in the gut over and over again.   It’s made me observe how we deal with the bad things that happen in the world and with each other. In my job...

What is your role?

Posted by on Oct 3, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

It’s tough to know what to do in the face of so much senseless violence in the world. It feels like the whole planet is tilting off its axis. Things are changing. What’s been hidden is coming to the surface too in the form of protests, arguments and people taking a stand for what matters to them. Even though there is so much turmoil, I see it as a positive step. It’s like when someone is really sick but it’s underground and nothing can be done about it. Then symptom start to show and diagnosis begins. Eventually things come to a head, a...

A Sign

Posted by on Sep 22, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

  Recently one of my clients asked me how to tell the difference between a random strange happening and a sign/omen. She had a cool story. “I was on the phone with my husband and we were having an intense discussion about something that could change the course of our future. I walked outside to my garden and there was a huge red tailed hawk sitting on my garden fence just looking at me, about five feet away from me. I have never seen a hawk there before or again since. The hawk stared me down and didn’t move until the second we reached a...

Fall Weekends

Posted by on Sep 22, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

  It’s a strange feeling today. It’s been extraordinarily beautiful up here in New England, one of those soft, gorgeous early fall weekends. The weather is perfect, with the leaves just beginning to change and the air smells like apples and Concord grapes ripening in the sun.  It’s in stark contrast to so many other parts of the world where there is chaos, fear and havoc.  I am trying to sit with the duality of this. My own life is awesome and gets better every day. I have leveled up my spiritual practice to the point where I feel...

Children

Had a beautiful visit with my son and his lovely wife today. They are very happy and that is most wonderful things to see in your kids. I am very proud of my son, he is a few days away from his 21st birthday and seems waaaaay more grown up then I was at that age. I think 2 years in the USMC will do that to you, if you let it.   His wife Kindred has taken on wifehood and living in a totally new place at the tender age of 18 and I can see her maturing and thriving in her new en   So proud of them both.   I believe that it is our...
