Today Is My Day…

Today is my day to live as I choose!! It sounds simple, but it hasn't always been. This is the particular day that threw my whole world into a tailspin many years ago. And although I found powerful ways to focus upon the healing, the growth, and the potential that this day holds, it has… Continue reading Today Is My Day…

My Redwood Initiation

I've been enamored with the thought of "Redwoods" since I was a child. But how can any of us really appreciate their majestic beauty until we stand before them? My opportunity came, just a few weeks ago. Like every other visitor to their mystical domain, my head was perpetually angled up, in awe of their… Continue reading My Redwood Initiation

Embracing the Shadows of a Wounded Heart

I had honestly believed that the shadows of my wounded heart were behind me. I had believed that I triumphed through each momentary challenge that appeared and transmuted all to the light of love - in the best ways I knew how. But its quite possible that I only healed that which I was able… Continue reading Embracing the Shadows of a Wounded Heart

One Final Rise Beyond “All Challenge”

I passionately run forward into the "everything" that awaits. The beauty, the bounty, and the love; I run towards it all. And yet, this intense forward motion seems to be a series of short sprints, rather than an epic marathon of uncompromising growth and expansion. Life always seems to reveal one attention-needing dynamic after another… Continue reading One Final Rise Beyond “All Challenge”

Healing an Ocean of Anger

I moved through a long moment, in my life, where small frustrations and injustices were mounting into larger infernos of rage within my soul. I am not an angry person by nature, but when we are faced with the inconceivable acts of disrespect, ignorance, and cruelty, over and over again, how long can we truly… Continue reading Healing an Ocean of Anger

Dreams of An Ancient Martyr

My dreams, last night, were filled with memories of the many relationships and situations in my life that felt less than supportive and nurturing. As a person that excels at being "positive" in life, I did my best to ignore those memories in the first half-dozen dreams. But the dreams went on and so did… Continue reading Dreams of An Ancient Martyr

Are You Sense-Driven??

How curious, that it has taken more than 4 decades to acknowledge that I am a sense-driven woman. I am fed, nurtured, inspired, ignited, and enriched by my senses!! They, perhaps alone, connect me to every extraordinary memory I can recall. Interesting and unusual colors, sounds, tastes, sights, and wonders. They all fascinate me!! I… Continue reading Are You Sense-Driven??

Are you Living an EmPowered Life??

"Life" is a gift of opportunity and potential. It can serve as a path of mere existence or it can become animated by all we contribute to it each day. Perhaps it's vital to consider that Life (with a big L) is happening for us. It's responding to our emPowered direction and shaping itself to honor… Continue reading Are you Living an EmPowered Life??

“Who Am I??”

The questioning begins - more deeply than I have ever known.   Perceptions of “Me” flitting through my mind-space,  enticing me to be at peace with only one beautiful aspect of mySelf or another.  It does not seem to be enough. In this sacred moment of supernal Being, it does not seem to be enough. My heart reaches further and further, to… Continue reading “Who Am I??”
