I wrote this meditation last fall. At the time, it felt like a good one for spring, so I held it back rather than putting it out there right away. I had no idea that we’d be so in need of refreshing our homes right now. Funny how things fall into place.
There’s no denying that COVID-19 is something to take seriously. But instead of letting it divide us, making us fight over toilet paper, let’s allow it to bring us together. Okay, maybe not physically together, depending on the social distancing guidelines in your area. But we can let this situation be a common ground on which we humans relate to each other with respect and compassion.
Instead of being controlled by fear and anxiety, let kindness lead the way. Be smart and stay safe, but remember to be kind.
Our lives are full of emotions and experiences, some good and others not so good. We tend to focus on the not-so-good. We dredge up pain from the past, we fret over the future. But there’s SO MUCH GOOD in life. What if we spent more time focusing on that?
Try this. Find a place to sit quietly, close your eyes, and focus on one good thing in your life. Just one. It doesn’t have to be big; sometimes the little things are the sweetest. Really feel the goodness of that one thing. Let that good feeling sink into your bones. Let it swirl through your body. Feel it lift you up. Now, don’t you feel better?
It only takes a few minutes, but focusing on the good, giving it room to grow, can turn your day around. It might even turn your life around.
The blue rose doesn’t exist in nature, and is therefore a symbol of mystery. During this meditation, we visualize a blue rose as a way to connect with life’s mysteries… and open to answers from the universe. Before starting this process, hold one or more questions in your mind. Your question may have to do with the mysteries of life, or could be something of a more everyday nature. The choice is yours.
The world seems like it’s going crazy. Watch the news or scroll through social media and it’s easy to let disbelief and despair take hold of you. But I believe, at our core, humankind is essentially good. I believe that, under all the layers of wounding and societal programming, there is a spark of pure goodness in each human heart. This may sound like naiveté, but I prefer to call it faith.
I’m acting on this faith. Starting this Wednesday, January 15th at 7pm Eastern, I’ll hold a weekly Virtual Healing Circle to promote love and kindness in our world. This won’t be held in a classroom or other venue. There will be no registration, check-in, or fee. Each Wednesday around 7pm, you can join from anywhere in the world, wherever you happen to be at that time. Simply ground yourself, quiet your mind as best you can, and hold yourself in a state of love. You can remain in this state for as little as a few moments, or for as long as you’d like. While in this state, let yourself feel the inherent goodness of humankind, the true essence of who we are beneath the layers of dissonance. Let the love in your heart grow, surround you, and connect you with others who seek to heal the world. Together, we can do this!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
With love, Heather

As we enter a new year and a new decade, there’s no time like the present to welcome the flow of abundance into your life.
My new meditation can help you release any scarcity of the past or uncertainty about the future. This allows abundance to flow into the now moment. Abundance means different things to different people. It may refer to financial security, love, health, or any other form of abundance that you long for.
What is a soul? There are so many definitions and theories and specifics, it can be overwhelming! It’s a huge topic, and worthy of all the attention and rumination is has received over the course of time.
But I think it’s really quite simple. Your soul is your eternal self. It’s the part of you that existed before this body was born. It’s the part of you that will continue to exist after this body dies.
Your eternal self isn’t bound by linear time, so it isn’t limited to just this one physical body that you’re using to read these words. It experiences life in many physical forms, in many different time periods, concurrently.
But even though your soul is eternal, that doesn’t make it better than this physical body that you’re now inhabiting. “Better” is a judgment, and souls don’t judge. Treat your physical body with the love, respect, and kindness with which you’d treat a precious loved one. Your physical self and your eternal self are on this crazy life journey together. Enjoy the ride!
My new meditation is now available, and it’s perfect for those of us whose sacral chakra could use some help!
The sacral chakra is located just below your navel. It’s the center of creativity, sensuality, and birth or rebirth. Orange is the color typically associated with this chakra. Its element is water. Having a healthy sacral chakra promotes a sense of balance and flexibility in life. If this chakra is clogged with old patterns or issues that have become stuck in place, this can manifest as abdominal or low back problems. Clearing this chakra can help your physical and emotional well-being.
