After taking a year off to focus on volunteer work, I’m resuming my one-on-one Distant Energy Healing Sessions. This gives you a chance to receive a personalized glimpse into your energy flow, helping you target any areas of “stuck” energy so you can start to release them. My clients find that this helps them let go of old issues, giving a boost to their emotional and physical wellness. You can find more information here.
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.

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.
This time of year, as the holidays approach, my thoughts turn to the topic of joy vs. obligation. Here’s what I mean…
We humans do stuff. All kinds of stuff. Our lives are full of stuff we “have to do.” But do we really? Are we doing things out of joy, or out of obligation? This crucial distinction can impact the quality of your life.
Yes, we live in this world (for now) and there are certain non-fun things we have to do. Let’s take laundry, for an example. I can’t think of anyone I know who enjoys doing laundry. It’s something we humans just have to do. But try turning “I hate doing laundry” into “I like having clean clothes to wear.” Or “I love it when my clothes are warm from the dryer.” Or “It’s a blessing to have a closet full of nice, clean clothing.” Take that obligation and view it from a perspective of joy.
If the majority of your activities are done out of obligation rather than joy, you may start to feel the strain of this in your physical body. Notice where in your body you feel pain or discomfort. What does this pain keep you from doing, or make it difficult for you to do? It’s likely a task that you don’t really want in your life. Can you take a break from this activity in order to give your physical body a chance to heal? Perhaps you’ll find a different way of accomplishing the task, one that is more in alignment with your joy. Or you may find that you didn’t really need to be doing the dreaded task at all, and were just stubbornly holding on to it out of a misplaced sense of obligation. (I speak from experience here!)
Trying saying this out loud: “I choose a life of joy, not obligation.” Then, one by one, look at each “have to do” in your life. Can you change your perspective on the task to take it from an obligation to a joy? Can you change the way you accomplish the task to make it more fun, more joyful? Can you give it up altogether? If you give this a try, let me know what happens!
