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...

Faith

Posted by on Sep 1, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Let’s talk about faith. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Texas and all those affected by Harvey. It’s so sad to see people lose everything. And it also warms my heart to see people coming together to help. Something out a huge crisis like this brings out the best in us. I wonder sometimes if that is why we have them. The whole thing has made me think about FAITH and what it means. It’s a tricky word, one that has a lot of charge to it, a lot of baggage. For some faith is a concept that rationalizes their horrible...

Anger meets Therapy

Posted by on Aug 28, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

  The other day, I was in what could have been a parking lot rage incident. I was in the Target parking lot and I left my empty shopping cart near my car rather than take it back to the little corral. Mostly because I broke my foot and it’s in a walking cast and my foot was aching already. The cart corral suddenly looked like it was a long way away. Then a gust of wind came along and blew the cart into a man’s very nice car. I watched it go feeling like –uh oh and ….ding. Instantly he became a very angry dude. He ran over to me and was...

Intuition

Posted by on Apr 28, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

My intuition always comes through my belly. I feel it like a fluttery warmth in my belly and then a shiver up my spine. When I feel that, I know I need to act, to move towards something and that it’s good.   When something is off, I also feel it in my belly. It’s a slippery queasy feeling and I get cold. I have learned the very hard way to go towards the happy belly flips and away from the slippery queasy feeling.   It’s like a rudder on a ship.   It requires first of all that I am in my body. I will miss all...

Happy Easter

Posted by on Apr 17, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Easter is a time of renewal and rebirth. Thank goodness, since I am in a transition time up to my neck. One of the better qualities that I possess is resiliency and the ability to rewrite my life- to start over, which I have done many times. And I am at it again.   I am at the empty nest part of life. In the next few months, I have one son getting married and going back into the Marines, one son moving to NYC and starting a new life there and my daughter is about to turn 18 (next week!) and is headed off for college in August.   And...
